Before I could figure out what was going on, I felt a pair of hands wrap around my neck. I was being choked. I grabbed the hands and tried to pry them away from my neck, but the person was so damn strong. I stepped hard on their foot and they grunted and let go of me. Then I started swinging my fists wildly, since I couldn't see.
Finally I made contact with the killer's face. They grunted again. It sounded like a pretty manly grunt in my opinion. I tried to run after I hit them, but they grabbed my hair and pulled me back.
"Fuck!" I screamed in pain as I fell on the floor. They climbed on top of me, pinning me down. I struggled get up, I wiggled my legs around, trying to throw them off, until I was successful. I kicked them in what I thought was their stomache. I stood up and felt around for the wall and I finally found it. Something felt safe about it.
Suddenly I was being pressed against the wall hard. The thing was it wasn't exactly aggressive. It was...sexual. I could feel their breath on my neck, breathing heavily. Their hands ran over my thighs and lifted me up, causing me to wrap my legs around them. This had to be a guy.
I was fighting him, pushing him away, or trying to anyways. He pressed against me even harder, rubbing his face against my neck, sniffing it loudly. I was disgusted, I started pushing his face, then I hit again. He dropped me. It hurt a little. The darkness was starting clear slightly. Now I could see the silhouette of the person. Definitely looked like a guy.
He was bent over holding his face. I jumped on his back, choking him. He tried to throw me off. When that didn't work he backed me up into the wall. I cried out as my whole backside was hit with immense pain. I tried to crawl away, but he grabbed my ankle and pulled me back.
He was back on top of me, deciding he had enough. He started chocking me again. And again, I tried to to pry his hands off, but he was way too strong for me. I was starting to become dizzy. I couldn't get any air. I was becoming weaker. I started the accept the fact that I was going to die....just like Ron and Pansy and Neville.
"Skyler?!" I heard voices that sounded so far away. And then I wasn't being choked anymore. I heard footsteps running away from me.
I still heard the voices calling my name. But I didn't have the strength to answer them. I figured I'd be dead by the time they got here anyways. They sounded so far away.
A few minutes later, when I felt myself loosing consciousness, I heard a ton of footsteps coming down the hall that was no longer dark. I heard them gasp.
"Neville." I heard Granger's voice say. I had almost forgotten that I had found Neville dead.
"Skyler! Skyler!" I heard Draco scream as he ran over to me. He held me in his arms. I had my eyes closed, but I knew his perfect face was twisted in a worried expression.
"Please be okay, Skyler." He whispered. He was finally calling by my first name. Suddenly I felt his lips cover mine. He was kissing me. And for a minute or so I had a taste of heaven and then everything went black.
I slowly opened my eyes to white light. "Am I dead?" I whispered.
"Not quite." I turned around and there was Ron, Pansy and Neville, standing there.
"But you guys are dead." I said.
"Yep. Kinda sucks." Pansy said, smiling just slightly. "I was going to tell you who the killer was, but I wasn't careful enough. I was stupid for letting the killer know I was on to them."
"And I knew who the killer was too." Neville said. "But somehow they found out I knew."
"You have to tell me who it is!" I exclaimed.
They all shook theirs heads. "We can't say." Ron said, just like he had said last time I saw him. "But this is all my fault. I made a mistake."
"What mistake?" I urged.
"I was a bad person. I made bad decisions." He whispered.
"What bad decisions?" I asked. "Who killed you all?"
Again they all shook their heads. "You have to find out for yourself, Skyler." Neville said.
"We're coming to you, because only you can avenge us." Pansy said.
"Why is it me?" I asked.
"Everything comes back to you." Ron said. "It's up to you, Skyler. Don't let us down." They turned and walked away.
"No!" I shouted going after them, but I just walked into a bright light.
I opened my eyes and again I was staring into a bright light. This time I knew I was awake. My head is pounding. I groaned.
"Hey, how are you feeling?" A voice asked. I turned my head to the right and saw Draco sitting on a comfy looking chair next to my bed. I wasn't in the Hospital Wing. I was in a room I had never been before.
"Like shit." I answered groggily. He smiled slightly.
"Well, you don't look it." He said.
I tried to smile, but it didn't work. "Is she awake?" I heard Harry's voice ask. Draco nodded.
"Thank Merlin you're okay Skyler. You almost didn't make it." Harry said.
"The killer. Did you catch him?" I asked.
They shook their heads. Hermione walked in the room. "Oh, Skyler, you're awake." She said smiling in what looked like relief. Never did I think that Hermione Granger would be relieved to see me.
"Is Bennett coming?" Harry asked.
Hermione nodded. "And Ginny is on her way too. She's still not feeling too well."
My eyes wandered around the room. "Where are we?" I asked.
"Bennett decided we're not safe anymore, so now we all share a common room and we each have our own rooms, just for us." Draco explained.
I must say I was quite happy about this. I was tired of my roommates to be honest. Bennett and Ginny walked in the room moments later.
"Hello Ms. Hartley." Bennett said. "How are you feeling?"
"Like shit." I answered again.
"I'm sorry to hear that." He said. "But I need you to tell me everything that happened right now."
I sighed as I struggled to remember. "Um..."
I told them everything. Finding Neville, the fight, the fact that I was now sure it was a man.
"So, you think it's a guy then?" Hermione asked.
"I know it is. He...was touching me in a sexual way. He was rubbing his face all over my neck and sniffing it. It was disgusting." I shuddered.
"Did he kiss you or anything?" Bennett asked.
I shook my head. "I didn't give him the chance to."
"Did you happen to at all see what he looked like? Or what he was wearing?" He asked.
"Just all black. Black pants, hoodie, shoes...his shoes were funny looking." I said.
Draco laughed slightly. "Of course you would notice that."
"That doesn't help us at all." Hermione said. "Everyone has black shoes."
I sighed. "I know...so what happened when you guys found me?" I asked.
I saw everyone's eyes flick to Draco for a moment. They must have seen the perfect, heavenly kiss.
"You were pretty much unconscious. By the time we reached you." Draco said. "You've been out for the past two days."
"Two days?!" I asked. I ran my fingers through my hair and sighed. "Well has anything happened since then?"
Everyone shook their head. "Nope."
Bennett got up, sighing. "Well, I'll look over your statement and see if I notice anything you might have missed. I'll be in touch with you all." He walked out of the room.
"We should go too and let Skyler sleep." Harry said.
"Someone has to stay and watch her though." Hermione said.
"I'll do it." Draco said quickly. Harry looked as though he was going to protest, but he didn't. Then it was just me and Draco alone in the room. He cleared his throat and avoided eye contact.
I snuggled deeper into my bed and easily fell asleep, knowing Draco was watching over me.
I woke up groggily to voices. "She needs to eat lunch." Harry's voice said.
"She's still sleeping." I heard Draco say. "Come back in about twenty minutes."
"Okay." Harry said. It was odd that they weren't fighting. I opened my eyes slightly. I saw Draco close the door and lock it. With his back still to me, he pulled his shirt off over his head. I could have died right there.
The muscles in his back were absolutely perfect. I wanted to touch them. He started turning around and I quickly closed my eyes. He seemed to be looking around for something.
I opened my eyes slightly and I almost gasped outloud. His abs were just unreal. My eyes raked over his pale torso. I wanted him so bad. He didn't even notice that I was awake.
He started unbuckling his belt and unzipping his pants. I wondered what kind of boxers he wore. But as he kept zipping, I realized he had no boxers on. I was about to see him fully naked. I'm such a pervert. He started pulling his pants down.
"Noo!!!" I shouted. He quickly pulled his pants up and looked at me wildly.
I know I was blushing furiously. "Sorry. Just I didn't want you to strip in front of me without your knowledge."
"You were watching me?" He asked, smirking slightly.
"I just woke up." I said.
"Right." Draco said sitting on the bed next to me, not bothering to put a shirt on. "Skyler, there's something I need to talk to you about."
He wanted to talk about the kiss. He wanted to tell me it was an accident and it meant nothing.
"It's okay, I know." I said. "You didn't really mean to kiss me, it was an accident you were just really overwhelmed and everything. I know that kiss meant nothing. I'm probably not even your type. Girls like Pansy were more your type." I rushed out.
Draco looked at me for a moment. "That's not what I wanted to talk about." He said slowly. "I just wanted to apologize. I should have gotten there quicker. I knew where you would be and I didn't even think to follow you or anything."
"Oh." I said feeling foolish. "It's okay, Draco."
"And just so you know you're wrong." He said quietly. "That kiss wasn't an accident. It meant something. And girls like Pansy aren't my type. I've actually got a thing for girls with highlights."
I realized I had highlights and I smiled. "Oh really?"
He nodded as he leaned in closer. His lips met mine and again I was tasting heaven. I sat up more, kissing him back hungrily. I hadn't realized how much I wanted him. He wrapped his around me and pulled me even closer. I climbed in his lap and straddled him.
The kiss was becoming more heated, although I didn't think that was at all possible, but it was. We pulled away for a moment.
"Tell me when to stop." He whispered, gently rubbing his nose against mine.
"I don't think I will." I whispered back. And he knew what I wanted. Exactly what he wanted. He smirked before kissing me again. I wrapped my arms around his neck securely as I pressed against him even more. He moaned slightly.
Before I know it, I'm on my back with Draco straddling my hips. He easily slipped my shirt off. He looked me over, biting his lip.
"Fuck me." He groaned.
I smirked. "That can be arranged." I reached up, bringing him in for another hot kiss. If I would have known being with Draco felt like this, I would have started getting to know him ages ago.
I was lost in thought about this as Draco touched me eagerly as though he had been waiting a long time for this too. I wondered how long exactly he'd been waiting.
He kissed my neck roughly and I winced slightly. It was still sore from being choked. He noticed. "I'm sorry babe." He said. "Got a little too excited."
"It's fine." I assured him. "Just be a bit more gentle." I said smiling. He resumed kissing my neck, but softly. It felt so good. I moaned, tugging on his hair slightly. He smirked against my skin.
I couldn't let him have all the fun. I ran my nails lightly down his back, he groaned. Then I moved them around to his abs. He pulled away from my neck, breathing heavily. I was loving the affect I had on him.
"Mmm Skyler." He whisper as he lips continued to move down. He kissed my collar bone and then lightly bit down. I moved my hands down into his open pants. He stopped all together.
He looked me right in my eyes. I felt my breath quicken. He started again, more passionate than before. I took advantage of him being so focused, I flipped us over.
Draco didn't seem to mind. He moved his hands, expertly unhooking my bra and throwing it behind his back, concentration in his eyes. Before he could do anything more to me, there was a knock on the door.
"Draco, is Skyler out of bed yet?" Harry's voice asked.
"Um, no. But she's been moving around quite a lot. She'll be ready in a moment I think."
I started kissing Draco's neck. He struggled not to moan. "Can I come in and see her?" Harry asked.
"No!" Draco said, really moaned. "She's not...er decent." I giggled quietly as I continued my work.
"What do you mean?" Harry asked.
"She uh, looks a mess." Draco said. I bit down on his neck. "Ugh!" He said.
"What's wrong?" Harry asked.
"I stubbed my toe." Draco quickly lied. "Um, we'll be down in five minutes."
"Okay." Harry said. I heard footstep retreat.
"Shit Skyler!" Draco gasped out. "Why would you do that?" He asked.
I laughed. "Cause it was fun." I kissed his nose and attempted to climb off of him, but he pulled me back down.
"I hope you know I'm not finished with you." He said.
I smiled. "Oh, I know." I leaned down and kissed his lips.
I know this sounds horrible, but I'm kinda glad that there was a killer after us. Being with Draco was probably the closest to heaven I would ever get.
A/N: Hi. So this chapter was pretty intense. Any idea who the killer is? Any suspicions? Thanks for reading. :)
