Over the years I had heard things about Draco. That once he got what he wanted he would just leave and forget about you. I didn't want that. I had fallen in too deep with him. There was no way out.
Draco and I sat in the common rooom. We were the only ones there. Harry, Hermione and Ginny were out together at the library. They hated being cooped up in this place. I rather liked it.
"Hey, babe?" Draco asked.
"Hmm?" I asked looking up at him.
"We're alone." He grinned.
"Yes. Yes we are." I said.
"So we should do something." He put his hand on my thigh.
"We are doing something." I stated, with a straight face so he didn't know I was teasing him.
"I mean something with...less clothes on. With no clothes actually."
"You're right." I smiled. He smiled also. "A shower sounds so good right now." The smile on his face faded and it took all of my strength not to laugh.
I got up and he grabbed my hand. "Where do you think you're going?" He asked.
"To take a shower." I answered. He pulled me on top of him.
"You can take a shower when I'm finished with you." He whispered, sending chills throughout my body.
I smirked. "I suppose I can wait for that shower then."
He grinned and kissed me hungrily, his hands gripping my waist hard. He started taking off my shirt, but I stopped him.
"We're not going to do it here." I said. "Anyone can interrupt us. I don't want any interruptions." I ran my finger down his neck slowly.
"Fine, let's go to my room." He picked me up and threw me over his shoulder.
"I can walk for myself." I giggled.
"Well I want to carry you." He slapped my arse and chuckled.
We reached his room and he threw me down on the bed. "Hmm, what to do with you." He said surveying me. I was slightly insecure with him staring at me like that.
I think he noticed. He hovered over me and kissed my lips softly. "Have I ever told you how beautiful you are?" He asked.
I shook my head as I kissed him again. "Well I should have." He whispered.
He pushed my shirt up my stomache and I pulled the rest off as he reached down his back, taking his shirt off also. I took a moment to marvel at his perfect body like I always did.
"Like what you see?" He asked smirking.
I nodded. "I sure do."
"So do I." He said. I kissed Draco. I was tired of all this talk. I wanted him and I wanted him now.
Everything happened so fast. One minute my pants are on. The next they're not. One second Draco is dressed, the next he has no clothes on. One minute we're just doing some heavy snogging, and the next we're have sex.
The best sex I've had to be exact. By the end of it, I'm exhausted. I can feel Draco's hot breath on my neck as we lay there, trying to catch our breath. I'm just waiting for him to kick me out, to tell me to leave or something.
Instead he kisses my lips and untangles himself from the sheets and gets out of bed.
"Where are you going?" I asked sitting up.
He looked at me confused. "I'm leaving, like you want me to."
"What?" I asked. "I didn't say that."
He scratched his head. "But that's how it works with you. We sleep together, you tell me to leave. We pretend it never happened."
I shook my head. "No you're supposed to tell me to leave. That's how its supposed to work."
"I know...but I don't want you to leave." He looked down at the floor.
"I don't want you to leave either." I said. He looked up and smiled at me. I smiled back. He hopped back into bed and cuddled me, nuzzling his head in my neck.
He kissed my neck softly. "I really like you Skyler." He whispered. "I always have. I just never thought I had a chance with you."
I laughed slightly. "You've always had a chance with me just so you know."
"It took murder for me to find out whether I did or not." He chuckled a bit.
We laid there in bed, cuddling and talking about everything. Soon Draco dozed off. I lay there, almost asleep myself, just thinking. In the midst of a murder investigation, here I was falling in love Draco Malfoy.
I'm not sure what Draco and I are. I mean we kiss and hold hands and make love all the time, but we haven't put labels on it. I think it's because we realize there is a killer loose and we can't have weaknesses. Draco is my weakness.
But Hermione, Harry and Ginny knew. And I was very aware that they didn't approve of it. But I didn't care. I was slowly but surely falling in love with him and there was nothing anyone could do to stop it. Not even a killer.
I was sitting in the common room alone, with my legs propped up reading a book for Charms. I had actually been keeping up with my school work lately. I guess Hermione was rubbing off on me.
As I turned the page a ripped piece of parchment came out. I read it.
Meet me in the Entrance Hall at nine. Tell no one and come alone
It wasn't signed or anything. I wondered if I should actually go. What if it was the killer trying to trick me. But what if it was someone with valuable information. I checked my watch. 8:45. If I was going I knew I should leave now.
I decided to go.
I reached the Entrance Hall and was relieved to find no dead bodies. I waited a few moment before someone came out of the shadows. It was Ginny.
I sighed in relief. "You sent me the note?" I asked.
She nodded. "Yeah. You didn't tell Draco did you?"
I shook my head no. "Good." She said.
"So what's going on?" I asked.
"I think I know who the killer is." She stated. "But you probably won't think so at all. You'll get mad."
"Who?" I asked.
"Draco." She said quietly.
I shook my head. "No, it's not him."
"I'm just saying I think it is him." Ginny said.
"But why?" I asked starting to panick a little.
"He was the only one who didn't want to investigate. Why? Because he didn't want to give himself away. And then he realized if he was on the inside, he could prevent us from finding out it was him. And he always seemed to know where you were, like he had been watching you."
"That could be for any of the rest of you too." I said quickly.
"And the day Ron was killed, Draco and Ron got in a fight. I guess Pansy had done something with Draco and Ron wasn't happy about it. Draco threatened him multiple times, saying he'd kill him if he had the chance. And then Ron ends up dead that night. I don't think that's coincidence." She explained.
"Why didn't you say something before?" I asked.
"You saw what happened to Pansy and Neville. I didn't want to be killed too. But I can see you getting closer to him and that's dangerous. He's tricking you, making you trust him."
I didn't say anything for a moment. What if she was right. Draco hadn't even told me about the fight between him and Ron. Why would he hide something from me unless he was guilty. No! I can't doubt him. He's the person I trust the most right now.
"No. Draco really does like me." I said trying to convince myself more than Ginny.
"Just think Skyler. You said killer was a guy and he was touching you sexually. Does the way Draco touch you seem familiar? And you were the only single girl that was a suspect after Pansy was killed. You were the only one he could get close with. He's keeping you distracted so that we'll never find the who the killer is. He'll keep killing us until there's no one left. He'll-"
"Stop!" I said. "You don't know if he's the killer or not. You just think."
"Yeah, I do think. You need to be careful, Skyler." Ginny warned. "If it him, you're probably next. You're the easiest target as of now. I'm sorry."
"It's okay." I said quietly. "Thanks for warning me. I just hope you're wrong."
"In a way I hope I'm wrong too. I'll see you later." She walked away.
I walked back up to the common room and found Draco on the couch. "Hey babe." He said.
I gave him a weak smile. "Hey." I said back.
"Something wrong?" He asked.
I shook my head. "Nope everything is fine." Except for the fact that you might be the killer and I'm falling in love with you.
"Good." He smiled.
Later that night after making love, I laid in bed, listening to Draco's light breathing and thinking. Was I in bed with a killer? Was this all just a big lie and I was being tricked? I had to find out.
All the next day I was second guessing myself. I needed to find out the truth, but I didn't know how.
All day I was thinking of ways to snoop around his room and try to find clues seeing if he was a killer. No oppurtunity came up until after dinner when we went up to his room.
"I'm going to the bathroom really quick, love." He said as he placed a sweet kiss on my lips. Did I just kiss a killer? I couldn't help but think.
The moment Draco closed the door, I started looking around for clues. I checked under his bed through his trunk (very neatly so I didn't leae a trail). I was looked through his drawers when I heard someone clear their throat behind me.
"Looking for something?" Draco asked.
I stood up quickly. "I was um..." I couldn't finish.
"You were what Skyler?" He asked looking at me confused.
I hung my head. "I was looking for clues to who killed Ron." I said quietly.
"Why would you be looking for them in-" he stopped when he realized what was going on.
"You think I killed Ron?" He asked.
I shook my head vigorously. "No." I said.
"Then why were you snooping around my room looking for clues? He asked.
I bit my lip. "Because I had to make sure it wasn't you. I had to be sure."
"You don't trust me?" Draco asked looking hurt.
"I don't know who to trust!" I exclaimed. "Someone tried to kill me!"
"And you think it was me?! You think I would hurt you?!"
"I don't know!" I cried.
Draco's hurt face was now mixed with anger. "I can't believe you don't trust me, Skyler. I thought we trusted eachother. I trust you."
"Have I given you a reason not to?" I asked.
"No. And I haven't given you a reason not to trust me." He said.
"You lied to me Draco. You told me you didn't speak to Ron at all the day he died. And you did. You got in a fight with him."
Draco ran his hands through his hair. "I didn't tell you that because I thought you would react...well like this. But I didn't kill him." He said firmly.
I just looked at him, not saying anything.
"You don't believe me." He stated.
"I didn't say that." I said.
"Well you didn't say you did." He countered.
"You didn't give me a chance, Draco." I said defensively.
"Well do you?" He asked.
"I don't know." I whispered.
He shook his head. "You think I'm a killer. My girlfriend thinks I'm a killer!" I disregarded the rest of his statement. Did he just call me his girlfriend?
"You know what, maybe you're the killer" Draco accused.
"What?!" I asked. "You think I would try to frame myself and fake hurt myself?!"
"I don't know. You're a smart girl, Skyler, you could have come up with something." He crossed his arms.
"I can't believe you're seriously accusing me of murder right now." I said.
"Well you accused me."
"No I didn't. Look can we just talk this out calmly?" I asked quietly.
"No. I don't want to talk right now. Please leave." He said pointing the door.
Tears were stinging my eyes. "Draco, please." I walked up to him and wrapped my arms around him. "I'm sorry."
He put his hands on my waist and gently pushed me away. "Skyler please leave me alone for a while I need to think this through." He kept gently pushing me towards the door.
"Please don't make me leave." I whispered.
"Just please go." Draco opened the door.
I walked out of the door and it slammed and locked behind me. Great. I had just accused my boyfriend of murder and now he hates me.
I decided to go out for a walk. As I left the common room I tripped over something and fell to the ground. "Ow." I said as I looked to see what the hell I tripped over.
It was Hermione. She laid on the floor, eyes open, staring up the ceiling. She didn't move or breath. And then I did what I always did when I found a dead body.
A/N: Hi. Sorry this took a while. So what did you think? Was Skyler wrong for snooping around Draco's room. What did you think of their fight. And poor Hermione is dead. Any idea who the killer is and what their motive was? Thanks for reading.
