I was going to go brush my teeth when I ran into Pansy.
"How did you get into the Gryffindor commons?" I asked, puzzled.
"Thats beside the point. I came to tell you to back off of Draco, because he's mine. And mine only!" she exclaimed.
"Whoa, Pansy. I was never interested in Draco in the first place. You can have him." I smiled, lying to her smoothly.
Pansy looked confused.
"But, on the train–" she said.
"Draco's parents are friends with my parents. We sort of have to get along." I said.
He and I have always been close, teasing each other and messing around. Never anything serious, but he was my first kiss and I was his first kiss.
We never talk about it at all since it happened during Christmas Break in our 3rd year.
Pansy has always had her eye on Draco, but he and I have always had something special.
Draco and I admitted to having feelings for each other in 3rd year, but we never did anything about it or told a single soul.
We brushed it off and decided to never speak of it again.
I know that I still have feelings for him, but I don't know if he feels the same.
Everyone says he acts differently when he's around me. And that it's a good thing, but I really just don't want to think about that because if Draco doesn't feel the same, I don't know what I'd do.
It sounds really cheesy, but its true.
"Still, back off. And tell all the other girls in Gryffindor that they can forget about getting with my Draciepoo."
"I'll be sure to tell them." I said trying to hold back the giggles.
Draciepoo? Is this girl mad? Draco avoids her every chance he gets!
"Good." she said as she stomped off.
"Goodnight to you too, Pansy." I muttered as she left.
~The Next Morning~
I woke up to Harry, Ron and Hermione talking about their class schedules.
I looked at my alarm clock.
"Why the bloody hell are you two here so early in the morning?" I asked them sleepily.
"Sorry, Mitch." they said.
I pushed the covers off my body.
"Why is it so hot in here?!" I asked.
"Because I'm here" Ron joked.
"Haha, very funny." I said sarcastically.
"Mitch?" Harry asked.
"Why are you in your underwear?" he asked.
I looked down and saw that I was in my very short pink silk pajama set.
"I am NOT in my underwear." i said, slightly offended.
"Be glad she wasn't sleeping naked." Hermione said. "She tends to do that when the weather is really warm outside."
"Thats true." I said.
I yawned and stretched my arms out as I stood up and put on my slippers.
"Well, I'm going to go brush my teeth." I stated.
"We don't have class today. They start in three days." Ron said.
"Why?" I asked.
"Tournament Preparations." he said.
I nodded and walked down the hall to the girls bathroom.
I heard cackling and I turned to see Pansy Parkinson standing there.
She laughed and pointed at me, then whispered something to a third year standing next to her.
She was wearing a pair of ugly brown pajamas with yellow and orange polka dots all over them.
"Whatcha laughing a minger?" I asked, annoyed.
"At least I'm not walking around practically in my underwear, you dirty slag." she said with attitude.
"At least I can walk around in something revealing without making Draco want to vomit." I smirked.
"DON'T YOU SAY A WORD ABOUT HIM, YOU MINGER!"
"Ooh, looks like I hit a nerve." I said "Sorry, not sorry."
I brushed my teeth as Pansy glared me down. I quickly washed my face before I went back to my dormitory.
I heard a couple of whistles.
I turned to see the twins.
"Hubba hubba, Mitch." Fred said.
"Agreed." said George.
"What are you doing in this side of the dormitories this early in the morning?!" I demanded.
"You know, chilling, enjoying our free time, planting dungbombs in the first year dorms." George smirked.
"Whatever, just keep your pranks away from me."
I suddenly got a flash of a migraine as I began to feel really sick to my stomach.
I felt lightheaded and the last thing I remember was calling for Fred and George.
I woke in the infirmary at night.
I looked to my side to see Draco sitting by my side, asleep.
I sat up. Apparently, I did this too quickly because my head started spinning again.
"Oh, take it easy dearie. Don't want you to faint again." Madame Pomfrey said.
"How long have I been here?"
"All day, dearie. Mr.Malfoy here hasn't left your side for more than two minutes since you were brought here by the Weasley twins." she said.
I looked at the clock on the wall.
I just realized Draco had my hand in his and his head was on the side of my bed, right by my right arm.
I didn't want to wake him, but I stroked his cheek a bit.
It was so sweet of him to stay with me.
"Mitchy?" he muttered as I stroked his cheek with the back of my hand.
"Draco, I'm awake." I said, "And I'm right here."
His eyes fluttered open.
"You're awake" he said as he shot up.
"Yeah, I am." I smiled.
"I was so worried." he said. "Your brother, Granger, all the Weasleys and even Potter were all here until noon."
"How thoughtful of them." I smiled, "Madame Pomfrey told me you've been here all day."
Draco looked embarrassed.
"Madame Pomfrey says you fainted because your blood sugar was very low. You haven't been eating enough lately." he said, trying to change the subject.
"I won't forget what you did for me, Draco." I said as I squeezed his hand and smiled.
We just sat there and talked for a while.
"I reckon Parkinson's cauldron has boiled over, today." I laughed.
"Haha, yeah. Pansy wasn't exactly chuffed." he chuckled.
I realized we were still holding hands.
"Do you mind helping me up? I want to go back to my dormitory. Mum always says that you're only really sick when you want to be."
He helped me get up and I put on my slippers.
As I was standing, we didn't let go of each other's hands.
He walked me down to the portrait of the Fat Lady.
"Do you mind coming in with me? I'm sure I'll need help getting up the stairs." I joked.
"Alright." he agreed.
"Pig snout." I said as the Fat Lady opened the door and we both went inside.
"Lets just sit on the couch. I don't want to make the girls uncomfortable." Draco said.
"Okay, fine by me."
We went and sat on the couch by the fireplace.
I pulled a blanket over our feet and we sat facing each other.
"Wanna play thumb wars?" I asked.
"Its a muggle game I learned from the years of school I took in the muggle world, before Hogwarts."
"How do you play."
"Here" I said as I placed our hands in the position to play thumb wars.
"So, we say 1,2,3,4 I declare a thumb war, and then we use only one thumb to pin the other person's thumb down. Whoever can keep the other's thumb down for 10 seconds wins." I explained.
"Seems simple enough."
"Okay, the lets do it." I giggled.
"Wait, lets make it interesting." Draco said.
"Alright. I'm listening."
"If I win, you have to go on a date with me." he smirked.
"And if I win, you can't call anybody a 'mudblood' all term." I said. "Deal?"
"Deal." he said.
We shook hands.
Draco and I both laughed.
"Alright go!" He said as we intertwined our fingers in thumb war position.
"One, two, three, four, I declare a thumb war." Draco and I laughed together.
We began to move our thumbs as we laughed like loons.
He pinned my thumb down.
I wriggled out with a squeal.
Draco pinned it down once more.
"1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10!" he exclaimed quickly.
"I win!" he said happily.
"Well, a deal's a deal, Fireheart." he smirked.
"Alright, Malfoy. Don't get your knickers in a twist." I giggled.
"You do realize our next trip to Hogsmeade is next Friday, right?" he smirked.
"Yes, I know." I smiled.
We just sat and talked
Soon, he was sitting behind me and I was leaning on him on the couch.
My head was on his chest and his arms were around my torso.
"Lets play 20 Questions." I said.
"Whats that? Another muggle game, I'm guessing?"
"Why, yes it is, Draco. You're a genius!" I said sarcastically.
"I think that wins me a kiss." Draco smirked.
"Don't push it Malfoy." I rolled my eyes.
"Okay, so how do we play this muggle game Madame Fireheart?"
"I ask you a question and then you answer it. You absolutely MUST be truthful. Otherwise the whole game is moot."
"How do you know if I'm being truthful or not?"
"Thats the thing, you don't." I said.
"Well thats just rubbish. Muggles and their strange games."
"Haha, come on Draco. Lighten up." I laughed, "Lets begin shall we?"
"You start." Draco said.
"Favorite color?" I asked.
"Blue." he answered.
"Now you ask me a question." I said.
"Alright, whats your Birthday?"
"May 7th" I smiled. "Favorite film?"
"I don't watch muggle films."
"None?" I asked.
"None." Draco said, "Favorite color?"
"Favorite gem stone?"
"Emerald." I muttered, becoming sleepy.
"Favorite day of the week?"
"Friday. Because the sun always seems to shine a bit brighter on Fridays. Even if its raining."
"Are you sleepy?" he asked as he yawned.
"Draco, just shhhh and sleep." I said as I put a finger to his mouth and dropped it onto his.
I slowly drifted to sleep in Draco's arms.
