A/N: OMG guys! I am so so so sorry that I haven’t gotten the sequel up sooner! It’s because of the same reasons that I hadn’t updated Young Black sooner! And also, I’ve had a bit of writers’ block. Well enjoy the sequel! I hope you like it!
“Dudley! I swear if you say that again, I WILL kill you!!!” I shouted. He backed away in fear and ran off with his cronies. I was left standing there panting until Draco wrapped his arms around my waist and kissed my neck.
“Calm down, love.” he said with a laugh.
“Calm down? Calm down?! He insults you and you expect me to calm down?!” He chuckled again.
“I thought it was rather funny. I mean he doesn’t know anything since he’s just a muggle.” I rolled my eyes as he took my hand and led me back to the house.
Once there, Aunt Petunia came stalking toward us. “What did you do to my Diddykins?” I sighed and crossed my arms over my chest.
“I didn’t do anything. He’s the one who insulted Draco!” She narrowed her eyes.
“I assure you, Mrs. Dursley,” Draco said. “It was just a shouting match.” She looked at Draco and then back at me.
“Alright then,” she said sternly. “But if I find out something did happen, it’ll be the last thing you do.”
I sighed and looked at Dray. He had the famous Malfoy smirk on his handsome face. I groaned and went upstairs to the guest room where he was staying. I plopped down on the bed and buried my head in the pillows. I felt the weight shift and Draco started rubbing my back.
“When can we go to your house?” I asked. He kissed my shoulder and laid his head down on next to mine.
“In a couple days.” I sighed and turned to face him.
“For what, love?”
“For all the crap that’s happened this week. I told you that it wasn’t a good idea that you came.” He stroked my cheek and smiled slightly.
“I was expecting it.”
“But they were so harsh towards you. I’m surprised that you didn’t demand to leave the second you got here.”
Harry, Draco, and I piled into the car. The ride home was silent, but there was evident tension in the air. Once home, Uncle Vernon demanded that we take our things upstairs and then come back down to the living room. When we returned, he and Aunt Petunia were sitting on the sofa uncomfortably.
“Sit.” Uncle Vernon ordered. We did so and he glared at us. “Now, I despise the idea of having two freaks in my house, and since I have to deal with another one, we will have to set some rules.”
I felt Draco tense up beside me, so I placed my hand on his leg to make sure he didn’t do anything rash.
“We can’t do it outside of school anyway.” I said.
“There will be a curfew of 9:00 in the evening. I won’t have you three gallivanting around doing who knows what.”
“We can’t do anything in this forsaken town anyway, so you won’t have to worry about it!” I retorted.
Uncle Vernon turned and glared at me. “If I hear one more smart comment from you missy…”
“Vernon…” Aunt Petunia warned.
“Petunia, she’s being disrespectful, and you are just going to sit here and take it?!” He turned to me again.
“Now, if you don’t keep your mouth shut for the rest of the night, I can easily make things the way they were when you were the house maid.”
I shook my head and turned to my aunt. “In all the years you have raised us, have you ever thought how my mother, your sister, would react?”
“How DARE you speak of that freak in MY house!!” Uncle Vernon yelled.
Harry jumped up from the couch and looked ready to hit him. “Don’t speak of my mother like that!” They ended up in a shouted match.
After a few minutes, I couldn’t take it any longer, so I ran through the house and went into back yard. I sat down in the grass with my knees up to my chest and cried. Draco sat down next to me, wrapped his arms around me, and kissed my temple. I leaned my head on his shoulder, glad he was there for me.
“It’ll be alright love, you’ll see. And just think, in a week, we will be at my house.” I smiled.
“Yeah, that will be nice. Can’t we just go now though? I really want to.” He kissed my hair and sighed.
“It will get better. It really will.”
End of Flashback
There was a knock on the door. “Come in,” Draco said. Harry came in and sat down on the chair across the room.
“So what happened with Dudley?” Draco chuckled.
“He tried to insult me. Tried is the word because I actually thought it was funny. Nat got really upset and it turned into a shouting match between the two.” Harry laughed.
“Well that’s not anything new.”
“I would appreciate it if you two would stop talking about me like I’m not even here.” I said. Harry chuckled and came over on the bed to sit by me.
“Well you’re not all here.” he said while flicking me on the head. I slapped him back on the arm.
“So when do you two get out of this hell hole?” he asked.
“In a couple of days, but I’ll be back before your birthday so we can celebrate it.” I replied. He nodded and stood up to leave.
“Well, I’ll leave you two alone. See you later.”
When the door clicked, I started laughing. Draco looked at me like I had two heads. “What’s so funny?”
“Who would have thought you and Harry would be able to stay in the same room together without wanting to kill each other?” He shook his head and chuckled.
“I would have never have thought that in a million years. But then again, you’re changing everything in my life; in a good way of course.”
We snuggled together and just talked about what we missed at Hogwarts and what the summer would bring.
