I had learned a lot about both boys lately. Tristan loved to read, his favorite subject was Transfiguration, and one day he wanted to write a book and teach Transfiguration. Draco on the other hand loved playing jokes on people, couldn't wait to leave school, and one day he wanted to be Minister of Magic. I find them both very attractive, only I don't know who I find most attactive.
In my head, I know it should be Tristan. We have so much in common, we read, we like school, we're both smart. But my heart is completely and utterly drawn to Draco because we're so different. He excites me and challenges me, where as Tristan seems to agree with everything I say. Sometimes it's nice, other times it bothers me.
"So, when do you think he'll ask you out?" Bree asked.
"Who, Tristan?" I asked.
"Of course Tristan, who else?" She asked.
"No one." I said quickly.
"Okay, then. Will you say yes?"
"I wouldn't say no." I said carefully.
"What does that mean?" Bree asked.
"You're asking a lot of questions." I said flipping the pages of my book nervously.
"Yeah, and I'm not getting a lot of answers." She replied.
"I'm just kind of focused on this book." I said.
"Oh, that's all you had to say." She shrugged. "You were acting as though you were hiding something."
"Of course not." I lied.
One thing I love about Hogwarts is the castle is magnificent. It's beautiful and big, and I love walking around, getting lost in it. I was walking around the fifth floor one evening. It was getting close to curfew, but I didn't care much. I was never caught, and if I was, I was sure either Draco or Tristan would help me out. It's nice having friends in high places.
I was walking past a broom closet when I heard. "Rorie."
I stopped immediately and looked around. No one else was in sight, I guess I just imagined. I took no more than two steps when I heard it again. "Rorie!"
I realized it was coming from the closet. I didn't like the idea of someone or something in a broom closet calling my name. But I walked towards it anyway, very slowly. "Rorie." The voice said again.
I was right in front of it now. It was opened a crack. I reached out and started opening it when someone grabbed my arm and pulled me in.
I was screaming, flailing my arms all over the place,trying to hit the person.
"Rorie!" The person was saying, trying to get me to stop, but I didn't. "Gorgeous!" I stopped.
Suddenly there was light and Draco was in front of me, looking slightly dishelved.
I shoved him away. "What's the matter with you?!" I asked bewildered.
"I just wanted to get you alone." He shrugged.
"Did you have to get me alone in a broom closet while scaring me half to death?" I asked.
"Well, I didn't have to necessarily." He replied grinning.
"You think you're funny, don't you?" I asked.
"I think I'm hilarious and you love it." Blondie continued grinning.
"Well, you're thinking wrong, sorry." I said.
He pulled me closer to him. "Prove it." He whispered.
I'll admit I was having a hard time proving it. Especially with his face coming closer to mine. Suddenly there was a series of loud popping noises. I freaked out a little.
"What is that?! Are we being attacked or something?! Draco, do something!"
"What do you want me to do?" He asked.
"You're Head Boy, go investigate!" I said.
"All right. But you know, it sounds pretty dangerous out there. In case I don't make it out, we should kiss."
"Oh, all right!" I said, kissing him hard on the mouth. "Now go!" I shouted.
Draco opened the door slightly, the popping noises hadn't stopped, but they were farther away. He walked out. A few moments later I heard him shout "Hey, what the hell are you doing?!"
A moment later he shouted "Hey!" I couldn't just sit there and wait. I exited the closet slowly and walked into pure darkness. I couldn't see a single thing.
"Draco!" I called. "Draco? Blondie?"
"Rorie!" He responded. "Where are you?"
"I don't know, I can't see anything." I answered.
"Me either. Uh, just follow my voice. Use the wall, okay?" Draco said.
"Okay." I said. I found my way to the wall and started moving in the direction of his voice. "Say something." I said to him.
"Gorgeous." He said. I rolled my eyes, but realized I was close. I kept going until I could feel him near me. A few more steps and I was touching him. I must have been touching a book or something, because whatever my hand was on was almost as hard as the wall.
"What is this?" I asked moving my hand up and down.
"That would be my body." He said, sounding amused.
I quickly withdrew my hand. "Oh, sorry." I said, glad he couldn't see me. I was probably red as a tomatoe. I never knew people actually had rock hard abs until then.
"Oh, it's fine." Blondie said.
"Stop it." I said.
"Stop what?" He asked.
"How do you know I was?"
"I just do." I said. "Can we please find a way out of here?" I asked.
"All right. Let's go." He grabbed my hand and we started walking.
"What happened?" I asked.
"Some third years were setting off fireworks. When I caught them, one of them threw down some Instant Darkness Powder." He explained.
"Oh." I said.
We walked in silence, until finally we were no longer surrounded by darkness. "Damn it, they got away." Draco grumbled.
In the middle of the hall was a plant. One I recognized as a Mimbulus mimbletonia. "Hey, what's that?" Draco asked approaching it.
I followed him. "Be careful, it's a Mimbulus mimbletonia." I said.
"Oh, I've heard of these things." He said as he started prodding it with his wand.
"Blondie don't do that." I warned.
"Oh, calm down Gorgeous. It's fine." He assured me.
"No, it's no-" I was cut off by the thick liquid known as Stinkspat squirted from the plant all over me and Draco.
"Oops." He said.
My eyes were closed tightly. I could tell just from feeling that I had Stinkspat in my eyes. If I opened them without flushing them with water, I could possibly go blind.
"Draco." I said trying to stay calm. "You have to get me to some water, I have to flush my eyes out. There is Stinkspat in them."
"How can you be sure? Here just open your eyes."
"No!" I protested. "If I do, I could lose my sight."
"But I thought it wasn't poisonous." He said sounding worried.
"If it touches your eyes it is, now hurry!" I said.
"Okay, I'll take you to my common room." He said grabbling my hand and pulling me along quickly. He then stopped and picked me up, clearly I wasn't running fast enough.
"Wait, go back to the closet, my bag is in there." I said.
I couldn't see, but I assumed he listened to me. He was running. "Hurry!" I said urgently.
Draco ran faster. He mumbled a password I couldn't understand because I was freaking out too much. I felt him running up the stairs. He set me down on hard surface, which I assumed was a counter and turned on the water. I felt the water on my face, his hands rubbing my eyes frantically. He did this for about two minutes and then stopped.
"Is that enough?" He asked.
I slowly opened my eyes to see his worried expression. "I'm fine." I assured him.
Blondie let out a sigh of relief. "Whew, that scared me."
"Had you worried, did I Blondie?" I asked, smirking.
"A little." He said.
I smiled looking at him. He was covered in Stinkspat. I looked down at myself, I didn't look any better. "We need a shower." I stated.
"Yes we do." He said. "Hold it right there." He walked out of the bathroom. I looked around, it was really nice in there. The shower was huge. Draco came back, carrying what looked like clothes.
"What is that?" I asked.
"Bathing suits." He answered.
"For what?" I asked.
"For showering, unless you want to go naked, which I'm fine with." He grinned.
"I'm sorry, we're showering together?" I clarified.
"Yes, now get changed Gorgeous." He said handing me a bikini and walking out again.
I sighed, but did as I was told. The bikini was cute. I might keep it.
I turned on the shower and hopped in, the hot water felt amazing. A few moments later Draco joined me. I gaped as my eyes raked over his body, I thought touching it was good, but looking at it was great. I looked away quickly before he could tell.
I could feel his eyes on me as well. "Eyes up here, Blondie." I snapping to get his attention.
"Sorry." He said not sounding the least bit sorry. I scrubbed the gross thick liquid off of my body, he did the same. Whenever I thought he wouldn't notice, I would sneak a peek at his abs. I was definitely enjoying the view.
"Do you like the shower?" Blondie asked.
"Abs a matter-as a matter of fact, I do." I hoped he hadn't noticed my slip up. He was smirking slightly, so I think he did. We were silent for the next few minutes, just scrubbing ourselves.
I could feel his eyes again. "Now, Blondie, we muscle-musn't stare, it's quite rude." What was wrong with me?
"I'd say sorry again, but that would be a lie." He said grinning. After washing out our hair, we were done.
"Where are my clothes?" I asked as I wrapped a fluffy towel around myself.
"Soaking. Had to find some way to get the Stinkspat off." Draco answered.
"What am I supposed to wear? I can't walk to my common room in a bikini." I said.
"You can wear a shirt of mine, and I don't think you'll be getting to your common room tonight. You'll have to spend the night." He said.
"Are you serious?" I asked.
"I won't try anything on you, I swear, you know, unless you want me to." He didn't smirk or grin. He was serious.
"All right fine." I said. "I trust you."
A few minutes later I was standing in front of the mirror in Draco's black button up shirt. For some reason I loved the way it looked on me.
Gorgeous walked out of the bathroom, wearing my shirt. I don't think I'd ever been so attracted to anyone. She looked so sexy with her hair all wet and wearing my shirt. I hate myself for saying I wouldn't try anything on her. There are a few things I want to try on her if we're being honest.
She went over to her bag immediately, and brought it over to my bed. As she sat down she looked at me for the first time since exiting my bathroom. "Where is your shirt?" She asked.
"I don't sleep with a shirt on." I replied. "Does that bother you?"
"Of course not." She answered. "Why would it?"
I shrugged and then smirked. "Maybe because it's a distraction. Or maybe you'll be tempted?"
Rorie scoffed, but said nothing. I think I was right. I went and sat down on my bed too. "You kinda like me, huh, Gorgeous?" I asked.
"What makes you think that?" She asked. She always had to answer my question with a question
"Because you kissed me today." I said.
"That's only because of the situation. Don't get excited Blondie." She said.
"Oh, please. We both know that was just some lame excuse to get you to kiss me. You wanted to, admit it." I said.
"I'll admit nothing." Gorgeous said.
I shook my head at her amused. I was winning, and she knew it. She started pulling books out of her bag, and I smiled she was so cute.
"What are you reading now?" I asked.
She couldn't help but smile. "One of my favorites. It's called The Notebook. It's by a muggle author Nicholas Sparks. It's a beautiful story."
"What's it about?" I asked curiously.
"It's about this man at a retirement home who reads to this woman with Alzheimers a story about two teenagers, Noah and Alli who fall in love over summer, and then break up. Then years later they meet up again." She explained.
"Do they get back together?" I asked.
"You'll have to read to find out." She said.
"Hmm." I said. "What about the other one?"
"That one is called A Walk to Remember. It's by Nicholas Sparks too." Rorie said patting the cover. "It's about a popular guy named Landon who falls in love with a quiet, shy girl named Jamie. But Jamie is reluctant to fall in love with him because he's known to be a jerk and has a bad reputation with girls."
I noted how similar it was to what was going on bewtween me and Gorgeous.
"Not to mention, Jamie has a big secret she's hiding." Rorie finished.
I couldn't help but wonder if this was also apart of our situation. Did Rorie have some big secret she's hiding? "What's the secret?" I asked.
"You have to read." She laughed.
"Fine." I said. "Give me the book."
"You're actually going to read it?" She asked in disbelief.
"Yeah, I want to find out what the secret is." I said.
A huge smile came across her face. "Okay." She handed me the book. It was small, it didn't seem to have no more than two hundred pages.
I climbed under my cover and got in a comfortable reading position. Gorgeous did the same. "Make sure you stay on your side." She said smiling slightly.
"Same goes for you." I said grinning. I saw her smile widen. We started reading. The book was pretty good. The thing Muggles come up with are insane. Every so often, Gorgeous would say something out loud to her book.
"Just kiss her already!" She shouted at one point. I found that absolutely adorable. The way she got excited about a book, even when she'd already read it was attractive for some reason. Before long, Rorie fell asleep. Her book laying on her stomache.
I removed the book, careful not to wake her, and pulled the cover over her more so she wouldn't be cold. I stared down at her for a moment. She was just so beautiful, even when she was asleep. I leaned down and gently pressed my lips against hers. I wondered if she was awake if she would have kissed me back.
"No! No! Stop!"
I'm startled awake by Rorie's cries. She's flailing her arms all over the place and crying out. "Please stop! Let me go."
"Rorie?" I ask shaking her, but she doesn't wake. Instead I'm met with her fist against my jaw. "Ouch!" I cried rubbing my jaw in pain.
"Stop no!" She continues shouting and flailing. I grab her arms and hold them down and wrap my arms around her. She fights me for a few moments, and then stops and falls silent. She's breathing calmly as though nothing happened.
I let her go, and straighten out the covers again. When that's done, I pull Rorie close to me and wrap my arm around her. I know she told me to stay on my side, but I had to keep the nightmares away.
