A/N~ I hope i got that right in the last chapter, Bellatrix lestrange is Draco's aunt right????
Draco Malfoy slept very badly that night, all important Death Eaters lived at the riddle manor, it was the rules. Draco had lived there almost immediately after he graduated from Hogwarts.
' I had a good life ' Draco thought ' no, i have a good life, i am rich, sought after by women, an important ministry official, The Dark Lord's right hand man. I have an excellent life. but that damn weasel had to ruin didn't she?'
'ah i better write to fudge' Draco got out of bed. he raised his arm and his owl flew to it. " hello amanuet " draco said, Amanuet was an egyptian goddess meaning hidden one.
Draco sat down and began to write ' Minister, it is my wish for me to work from home for a long period of time, A personal issue has occured and i wish for you to owl me any news going on in the ministry
" There you go." draco said while fastening the letter to amanuet, she flew off in a flurry of wings, leaving draco alone once again.

Ginny was still wandering around the room, she knew she would never sleep even if she tried. It looked as though no one had been in this room for years. Dust covered everything.
Ginny sat on the bed and an odd calmness came over here, willing here to fall asleep. She had no problems, She should just close her eyes and fall asleep.
Ginny fell back wards and within moments she was fast asleep.
~ * ~ * ~
As Draco passed through the torture chambers the screams almost caused a pang in his heart. But he had heard those screams every day for nearly four years now, he was very used to it. ' Besides, those filthy mudbloods had it coming' Draco thought
He pushed open the door to Ginny's room and she was asleep ontop of the covers.
Draco sighed, he had no idea what to do with her, no idea what so-ever
Draco walked over to the bed and tried to rouse her, Ginny stirred slightly, but did not open her eyes. Draco tried to wake her again
" Mum, come one just five more minutes." Ginny said in a whiny voice, she grabbed a pillow and put it over her head, as if she wanted to block out the lights.
" Bloody hell" Draco muttered he was quite for a couple moments, until he was sure Ginny was asleep again then he yelled " WAKE UP!"
Ginny woke up, very startled, looked around and obviously remembered where she was. She looked at draco with pure hatred in her eyes
" Here" Draco said, giving her a black robe to wear. Draco put it on the bed. Ginny looked at it, then to draco, then back to the robes.
" Weasley, put the damn robes on." draco hissed, putting his face very close to Ginny's
" You know." Ginny said, putting her head to one side " i don't think i will" Ginny knew that Draco would retaliate somehow, but she figured they wouldn't kill her until they had harry, and she was sure that harry was safe.
" Put. The. Robes. On" Draco said each word slowly, as if to let each sink in. " Or i shall make you put the robes on." he said while pulling out his wand and holding it threateningly
" hmmm if you making me would involve you touching me, i would much rather put them on myself" Ginny said while grabbing the robes.
The robes were much too big for Ginny's small figure, but she really didn't care, because she was freezing.
Draco eyed Ginny, now Ginny was very grateful for the robes being too big, because draco's glare was making her unconfortable and self conscious. " Let's go" draco said and he grabbed her arm, and led her out into the corridor where screaming was the first thing they heard.
Ginny closed her eyes while they went through this chamber. Draco looked and saw her eyes tightly closed. A smirk appeared on his face. He could have fun with this, he figured he could throw the weasel into one of the bleeding muggles, he was about to when he looked back at Ginny
' she has grown up' Draco thought, still looking at her ' she doesn't look anything like how she looked at hogwarts, and she is a little fiesty as well, she never would have not listened to me back in hogwarts, she is rather beauti- oh god i did not just think that, I did not just think that!' he thought.
Draco began walking faster, frightened with himself, ' ok just calm down' Draco thought, taking a deep breath " Lets go weasel!" and he pushed her along some more
' I cannot believe that i almost thought she was beautiful. I have thought that about many girls. I thought i loved them, father taught me about love.' Draco remembered what his father told him " to love is to be weak, Malfoys are not weak!"
Finally, Draco led Ginny out of the dungeon and up the narrow stair case. They reached the door and when Draco opened it, Ginny's eyes began to water, for her eyes were used to the dark.
Draco took Ginny into the dining room where a breakfast feast awaited her.
Ginny's mouth dropped open in surprise. When Draco led her into the dining room, she was expecting something horrible, she did not expect a table filled with any breakfast food imaginable.
" Sit down." Draco mumbled. Ginny thought this was rather odd, it seemed like Draco was at a loss for words, Ginny never saw a Malfoy speachless.
Ginny sat at the end of the table, Draco sat opposite of her. Their eyes locked on eachother's and Ginny felt that she could not look away. His intense eyes were staring down her chocolate ones.
Draco broke their eye contact " Eat." he said dully. Ginny looked repulsed at the idea, and looked at the food disgustedly.
" Oh, i see." Draco said finally showing his smirk " You think it's poisoned or something along the lines of that don't you."
Ginny looked away. She did in fact think the food would be poisoned
" Don't worry weasel, if you could live off of your mother's rubbish for seventeen years, a bite of poisoned toast surely wouldn't kill you."
If Draco was in reach, Ginny would have slapped him. However, he was sitting on the other end of the table ' shame.' ginny thought
Draco inspected his nails for a moment then said " the dark lord will be very angry if you don't eat something. I trust you don't want me to call him in here."
Ginny twiddled her thumbs. Very nonchalantly she said "no, it wouldn't bother me any."
A surprised expression appeared on Draco's face. Threatening to get lord Voldemort was a fail-safe threat, until now.
Draco stood up very suddenly and walked across the room until he was standing behind Ginny. " Fine, starve to death, see if i care." he hissed in her ear.
Ginny thought Draco was going to try to strangle her, but he merely strided across the room, and out a different door, leaving Ginny alone and in silence.
Very cautiously, Ginny picked up a strawberry from a black bowl. She examined it thoughtfully. ' I don't need this, i'm not even hungry.' Ginny thought, trying to convince herself
As though agruing with her, Ginny's stomach growled softly.
' They could kill me thousands of ways, so why would voldemort care to poison me?'
" What the hell" Ginny popped the strawberry into her mouth
~ * ~ * ~
Draco was standing outside of the dining room, leaning against the wall and muttering under his breath.
" Having trouble, Draco?" Voldemort said, appearing next to Draco
" Of course not, my lord." Draco flashed a quick, fake smile
" Then why are you not in there with the girl" Voldemort said, his eyes flashing with a dangerous glare
" I thought she might like to eat alone, in private."
" Get in there Draco" Voldemort hissed " I told you to watch Ms. Weasley for a reason, and watch her you will!"
Grudgingly, Draco pushed open the door to reveal Ginny eating pancakes.
Draco sat a few seats away from Ginny. Ginny didn't look up, she just kept on eating. ' she is the neatest eater i ever saw' Draco thought, staring at Ginny.
Draco leaned over the table and grabbed an apple. He threw it up and caught it. He repeated this several times. Ginny took no notice of him.
If there was one thing Draco could not stand, it was being ignored. Nobody ever dared to ignore a Malfoy. But this red headed little girl was sitting there, eating as if no one else was in her presence.
" So you chose not to starve, Weasel?" He asked with a smirk appearing on his face
Again, Ginny just kept eating as if she could not hear him.
Oh, Ginny was loving this, she knew Malfoy hated being ignored, she was laughing hysterically on the inside, ' serves the git right' Ginny thought.
" Can you please hurry up?" Draco asked, very annoyed
" Can you please pass the syrup?" Ginny asked sweetly, although a sneer was showing up on her face.
She really wasn't hungry anymore, but Draco wanted to leave, so she figured she might as well stay and eat as much as she could.
" How much can you possibly eat Weasel"
Ginny shrugged and took another bite of her toast.
" That's it, you must be full by now." Draco got up and grabbed Ginny's forearm. "We have to get you robes." Draco said, dragging her out of the room.
" Libby!" Draco called, immediately a house elf with bandaged hands came running. " Measure her for robes." Draco gestured to Ginny
"Yes master." the elf said in a squeaky voice. " Follow Libby please" The house elf led the way through the manor and into a room filled with mirrors, stools and fabric. House elves ran around with pins in their mouths and fabric in hands, making robes.
"Step up here miss." Libby said, Ginny stepped on the stool, Draco was watching her every move. At once measuring tapes began flying around Ginny, measuring her.
" Libby was calling out the measurments to elves who ran and magically sewed the robes together.
After a half hour of standing still, Two sets of black robes were handed to Ginny, and one elegant looking pair of powder blue dress robes.
Ginny took off the very large robes she was wearing and put on the newly fitted ones. They fit her perfectly.
" Lets go, you have to bathe, and find a dress to wear for tonight." Draco said, taking ginny's arm again
" Tonight?" Ginny was confused, what was happening tonight\
