I had decided that today was the day I would break up with Pansy and win Jo back. The past few days were nothing short of torture. I hated not kissing Jo and not touching her and not sneaking around with her. I even missed holding her hand when no one was around.
I couldn't believe how much I had taken her for granted. I honestly didn't think she would end things so soon if I didn't break up with Pansy. When Jo broke up with me, I died a little, and I cried a lot. I had never cried over anyone before,but I just completely broke down after I kissed her for the last time and walked away.
The fact that she was practically sobbing didn't make things any better. I hated that I was causing her that much pain just because I didn't have the balls to break up with Pansy. But that changed, I missed Jo way too much, so I made the decision to end things with Pansy.
Today after lessons, I told Jo to meet me in my room at eight. I planned to break up with Pansy after dinner. It took me awhile to find her and I was already running late, so I cut right to the chase.
"Hey." I said. "There's something we need to discuss."
"What is it?" Pansy asked.
I sighed. "We should break up." I said.
"What?' She asked.
"I said we should-"
"I heard you, but why?" She asked. I could see the tears filling her eyes. I felt bad, but not as bad as I felt being without Jo.
"Because things don't feel the same. I know you've noticed it too. We've grown apart."
"Is there someone else?" She asked.
I hesitated for a moment. I couldn't tell her that I was truly in love with her best friend, could I? "Look it doesn't matter if there is, things still aren't working out between us." I said.
Pansy scoffed. "There is someone else. Who is it?"
"No one. This has to do with us and no one else. It's time we move on. We can still be friends, though."
"Whatever." She shook her head, as tears fell down her face.
"Oh, don't cry. I'm really sorry." I said.
"No, you're not. But you will be." With that she stalked away from me. Well that didn't go like I planned. I didn't expect her to cry. Or threaten me.
Now I was on top of Jo, having just kissed her for the first time in days, ready to make love to her. She said the moment I broke up with Pansy, we would have sex. I was so ready.
Jo is gaping at me. Then finally she says. "You broke up with Pansy?!"
I smiled down at her. "Yeah." I answered.
"B-but why?" She asked.
I was sort of confused. "Jo, I did it for us. So we could be together."
"Draco, I thought we were going to figure this out first." She said.
"What is there to figure out anymore?" I asked. "I did it. I broke up with Pansy. We can be together."
Jo scoffed. "It doesn't work like that. You can't just decide we're back together."
"B-but I did what you wanted." I said quickly.
"Yes." She said slowly. "What I wanted. Did you ever think something might have changed? That maybe I don't want what I wanted then?"
"It's been four days!" I exclaimed.
"Yes, but things have changed." Jo said quietly. I couldn't believe she didn't want to get back together. Maybe she just needed some convincing.
"But, you said the moment I broke up with Pansy we would make love. Well this is that moment." I said.
"That doesn't really mean anything." She said.
"What do you mean? We had a deal." I said anxiously.
"I mean, that we could still have sex, but it won't mean anything. We'll still be just friends." Her eyes were wandering around the room, avoiding mine.
I thought for a moment. I didn't like that idea. The whole point of making love to Jo was to have her be mine and only mine. To prove my love to her.
I shook my head. "I don't want to have sex with you if we're not going to be together."
She looked at me. "What did you say?" She asked.
"I said I don't want to have sex with you if we're not together." I repeated.
Jo smiled. "Well, in that case, I guess I can give you another chance." She said.
"Really?!" I asked.
She nodded. "I didn't want to get back together, because I thought all you cared about was the sex. But you've proved yourself."
I let out a sigh of relief. "Oh, thank Merlin!" Jo laughed her amazing laugh that she has when she's truly happy. I feel so lucky that I make her happy. "So, then you'll be my girlfriend?" I asked. "Not my mistress, not the other woman, not girlfriend number two. My girlfriend."
Jo looks at me for a second before smiling and nodding. Then she reached up and kissed me. Chills ran through my body. As I kissed her, I caressed her face softly with my hand, and then I slowly slid my hand down her to her legs.
Jo pulled away. "You should close the curtains." She whispered.
"You mean, we're gonna…" She nodded.
"We don't have if you don't want to." I said.
"I've been waiting for this for a while now. I'm not waiting any longer." She said.
I quickly got up and closed the curtains around my bed. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited, I was ecstatic to say the least. I tried not to show it too much. Jo watched me with an amused expression.
"What?" I asked.
She shook her head and chuckled. I kissed her and cut her laugh short. "What were thinking?" I asked.
"How much I want you." She whispered. She grabbed me by my tie and pressed her lips against mine. She pulled me down on top her. I didn't waste my time, just in case she changed her mind. I immediately started taking off her clothes, she started taking off my clothes too, maybe she like me wanted to hurry before she changed her mind.
It didn't take long before Jo is only wearing her bra and underwear, and I'm only in my boxers. Suddenly, everything feels like it's in slow motion. Our kissing becomes slower, but more passionate, the movement of our hands isn't fast, but deliberate and meaningful.
Jo pulls away. "Fifteen." She says.
"What?" I asked confused.
"That's how many guys I've slept with. Fifteen." At first I thought she was saying we only had fifteen minutes. That wasn't nearly enough time with her, I needed all night.
"Oh." I said, suddenly feeling nervous. I had to be better than fifteen guys at sex. I needed to be the best Jo has ever had, so she'd never be tempted to leave me. I had to keep her coming back for more.
"Well, um, I've slept with five girls." I said.
"I don't want to hear that." Jo said.
"But, you told me about the guys." I said defensively.
"You asked, remember?" She said.
I did remember. But I had asked out of spite and jealousy, because she had slept with stupid Calington. I was pissed, and I wanted her to be as pissed as I was. "Right." I said.
"Just forget about it." She said, kissing me deeply. But I couldn't. Who was the best? Who did I have to outdo?
I tried to pull away, and ask, but Jo captured my bottom lip in her teeth, pulling me back in gently. I was right. Her biting my lip was the best feeling in the world. She got a moan out of me and smirked against my lips. I easily got her back by nibbling her neck softly, infact, I got multiple moans from that.
Only mere minutes later, we're making love. I got completely lost in Jo. I lose track of everything except for her. I don't know how long we're entertwined. Or how many times we cried out in pleasure. I didn't know exactly how much noise we were making. Or how much time we spent underneath the covers sweating from the heat we were causing.
What I did know was that my body wouldn't stop. Being with Jo like that was intoxicating and addictive. I couldn't stop if I wanted to. It seemed like so many hours later we finally stopped. Our bodies were exhausted and couldn't go any longer. I got off of Jo, breathing hard and fast and collapsed beside her. I could see her chest rising and falling quickly as she breathed heavily.
We said nothing as our breathing calmed. I stared at Jo, hoping she would never leave me. She turned to me and smiled weakly, as though reassuring me she would never leave.
I could tell she was about to fall asleep. She turned away from me,allowing me to wrap my arms around her before she drifted off.
All night, I clung to Jo. The only person I'd ever need. And the only person I loved.
I'm half awoken by the bed I'm sleeping in suddenly shifting,and becoming lighter. My eyes opened slightly. "Wha-?" I asked drowsily.
"Shh." A voice whispered softly in my ear, from behind me. "Go back to sleep, love." Lips kissed my neck softly and lovingly. I listened to the voice and drifted back into a peaceful sleep.
My eyes flutter as I wake up yet again. I look around, and realize I'm alone. The events of the previous night come back to me, and I smiled. I could still feel Draco's body against mine, even though he wasn't there. I sat up slowly, looking around and noticing a note on top of neatly folded clothes.
I pick up the note. It was in Draco's writing.
Sorry I couldn't be there when you woke up. I had to do something. I got you some clean clothes, you can shower, and I'll see you in the Great Hall. Last night was spectacular.
I smile and looked at the clothes Draco laid out for me. My favorite green shirt, and a pair of shorts. There was also my pink lacy bra and underwear. How he managed to obtain my clothes, I didn't know, and I'm not sure I wanted to know.
I opened the curtians around Draco's bed slowly, but came to realize I was alone in the room. I took a nice hot shower,and put on the clothes Draco left for me. I put my wet hair in a ponytail, and headed down to the Great Hall. There were a few people in the common room who didn't look surprised I was coming from the boy's dormitory.
The first person I saw was Draco. He was talking to Blaise, until he noticed me entering. He smiled at me like he had never smiled at anyone else. I reached the table and sat down.
"Hey." I said.
"Hey." Draco said back. "You look amazing."
I blushed. "Thanks, you do too."
"What about me?" Blaise asked.
"Huh? Oh, yeah, uh you look great too, Blaise." Draco said, not taking his eyes off of me.
"Am I missing something here?" Blaise asked looking between us.
"No." We both said quickly.
"Okay then." He said suspiciously. "So, Jolina, did you hear that Draco broke up with Pansy?"
"No." I lied. "I was not aware of that."
"Yeah, well, Jo I did." Draco said playing along.
"Wow." I said.
"Daphne says she was crying all night." Blaise continued. I felt so guilty. "Speak of the devil." He said.
I turned and saw Pansy entering the Great Hall. She looks a mess. She's in sweats and a sweat shirt, her hair is messily put up in a ponytail. Her eyes are red rimmed, and her face is tear stained.
I had never seen her like this. "I'm going to go talk to her." I said.
Draco grabbed my arm and whispered so Blaise couldn't hear. "You're not going to tell her about us,are you?"
"No. I'm just going to see if she's okay."
I got up and went over to her. "Hey, Jolina." She said in a defeated voice.
"Hey, Pansy." I replied. "What happened?" I asked, already knowing.
"Haven't you heard? Draco dumped me." Her voice broke.
"Um, yeah, I just heard. I'm so sorry."
"T-the worst part is he didn't even tell me the real reason. He said 'it just wasn't working out' but I-I know there's someone else."
"Oh." I said.
"A-and then I tried to find you last night, but I couldn't. W-where were you?" Pansy cried.
I felt so horrible. "I'm so sorry Pansy, I didn't know. I was, um with someone last night. I didn't even make it back to our room." I said guiltily.
"Oh." She sniffed. "Do you know who she is?" She asked me.
"Who's she?" I asked.
"The girl Draco left me for. Do you know who she is?"
I sighed and shook my head. "No, I don't."
"Okay, then. I'm gonna grab a piece of toast and get out of here. It's too soon to see him." Pansy said sadly.
"All right, I'll see you later." I said. I went back to my seat next to Draco.
"I feel so bad." I whispered.
Draco wrapped his arm around my waist and whispered. "Don't. It's not your fault. I'm the one who hurt her."
"Well, I helped." I said.
"Baby, don't worry about it. We did it for us, okay?"
I nodded. "Okay."
"What is with you two today?" Blaise asked looking at us strangely.
I cleared my throat, and Draco unwrapped his arm from around me. "Nothing." We said.
Before he could say anything more, Nott sat down and said "Hey."
"Hey." We all replied.
"So, Jolina, I heard something interesting this morning." Nott smirked.
"About what?" I asked.
"You. I heard you came down from the boy's dormitory this morning, which means you can't have slept in your own bed last night." He said.
"Hmm, that is interesting." Blaise said. "And it also reminds me. Draco, I hear you were celebrating your newfound singleness."
"Where did you hear that?" Draco asked.
"Last night from your bed. You and whoever you had sex with last night were pretty loud." Blaise said.
Draco and I glanced at eachother. I knew we should have went to the Room of Requirement.
"So, Jolina, what lucky guy did you fuck last night?" Nott asked, again smirking.
"Who I fuck is none of your damn business, Nott." I said.
"Well, excuse me for trying to find some information." He said.
"So, Draco who did you have sex with last night?" Blaise asked.
Draco cleared his throat and shrugged. "No one worth mentioning." I looked at him raising my eyebrows. "It's just a figure of speech." He muttered.
"Fine, both of you don't tell us about your wild nights." Nott said getting up. "By the way, love your hickeys from your little endeavors." He walked away.
I rubbed my neck as though trying to rub off the hickeys. I was so scared one of them would put two and two together. Thank Merlin they were too focused on the seperate parts.
"It's kind of funny how both of you slept with someone last night." Blaise said. "And that you both have hickeys…and you both won't tell me who you slept with. And you don't even seem interested in who eachother slept with as if you already know..."
Realization came across Blaise's face. My stomache dropped, and Draco and I exchanged worried glances.
"No." Blaise said. We just looked at him, confirming what he thought. "You two?! You two fucked eachother last night?!" He whispered.
"We prefer the term 'made love'." Draco said quietly.
Blaise looked at us in disbelief. "Oh, my goodness, you did! How could you-? And Pansy? Ugh, you guys are best friends!"
"A little more than that, actually." I whispered.
"Oh, no. We are going to talk about this. After dinner, our room." He said getting up.
"I don't want to hear it right now." He said walking away.
"We're in trouble aren't we?" I asked.
"Yeah." Draco answered.
A few minutes later we left the Great Hall. I was really worried about what Blaise would do. Would he tell Pansy?
"Stop worrying." Draco said. "Blaise won't rat us out." His voice was so soothing and confident, I trusted him.
"Okay." I said nodding.
"That's my girl." He said kissing me. It felt so good knowing I was his only girl.
"I just realized there's something I forgot to tell you last night." Draco said seriously.
"What?" I asked.
"I love you, Jo." He whispered.
"I love you too, Draco." I said. Finally, after all these years I got to say it.
I can't believe he broke up with me. I thought we had something special. Then after two years of my time and love, Draco decides he wants some slut instead. I can't stop crying. Or stop being pissed.
I never saw this coming. I mean, sure he's cheated on me before, but he always comes back. I guess whatever whore he's been sneaking around with has got him really good.
But when I find out who she is, I'm going to get her really good. No one steals my boyfriend from right under my nose and gets away with it. The only problem is I have no fucking clue who it is.
I don't know what kind of personality she has, or what house she's in, or if she's prettier than me. So I'm pretty much blind searching. I just have to pay attention and see what girl he's around all the time. Though he's barely anywhere without Jolina.
She might be my best hope of finding out who Draco is with now. She's his best friend, he's bound to tell her. I think she knows something, she seemed really nervous when I asked her about it this morning.
I feel bad for Jolina right now. She's probably feeling torn, because Draco and I broke up. I'm not even going to ask her to choose sides, I know she'll choose his. She's better friends with him than she is with me.
But I need to find out who this other girl is. When I do, I'm going to destroy her and get Draco back. He belongs to me and me only. Especially after all I did to get him in the first place.
The lies I told, the people I hurt, the lives I ruined, the blackmailing, the manipulating I had to perform. I've done some fucked up things, but I wouldn't take any of it back. Everyone who I lied to deserved it. Especially the person I decieved the most, oh did they deserve what I did. Now they know not to ruin my life. They know their place.
The best thing is no one knows what I did, and I never have to worry about anyone finding out. What I did need to worry about out was finding and ruining the bitch that stole Draco from me.
Then I'm going to make Draco wish he had never left me. I wasn't joking when I said he would be sorry. He will be.
