My eyes fluttered open and I found myself in the Gryffindor commons room.
I took in a deep breath and smelled lavender and peppermint.
I looked up to see Draco fast asleep.
I decided to let him sleep, after all, he did stay in the Hospital Wing with me all day yesterday.
I tried to get up but Draco's grip tightened.
Once again, I attempted to get up but his grip tightened even more.
"Draco" I whispered. "Draco?"
He mumbled something in his sleep.
"Draco, get up!" I half-whispered, half-shouted.
He didn't get up.
I gave in and placed my head on his chest again.
"What do we have here?" I heard one of the twins say.
I closed my eyes and pretended to sleep so they wouldn't give me shit this early in the morning.
"Looks like Mitchy is getting cozy with Malfoy." one of the twins chuckled.
I couldn't tell which by their voices.
"Shut up" Daniel said.
I could practically hear the venom in his voice.
"Mm" Draco mumbled as he began to wake up. "Michelle?"
"Huh?" I muttered pretending to be sleepy.
I opened my eyes half way.
"Draco?" i asked. "What time is it?"
"7 in the morning, sunshine!" one of the twins exclaimed.
Draco must have been startled because he shot up off the couch and fell on the floor, causing me to fall on top of him.
"Ow" he groaned.
"Sorry, Draco." I smiled innocently as I sat up.
Draco rubbed his head and stood up.
I stood up too.
"I'd better get to Slytherin commons before Snape throws a fit." Draco said.
"Alright, I'll see you at breakfast in the Great Hall." I said.
"Okay, then. Bye Michelle."
"Whats with you and Malfoy?" Fred asked.
"There is no me and Malfoy. Draco is just a friend."
"Doubt that." George said.
"Guys, leave her alone." Daniel said, a bit annoyed.
"Thanks Danny." I smiled.
"Go get dressed, we're about to go to breakfast." Daniel stated.
I quickly ran to my dorm and put on some clothes.
I walked down to the Great Hall and sat down next to Danny, Fred, and George
I had my eye on a green apple and was about to grab it when another hand reached for it at the same time I did.
I looked up to see a boy from Durmstrang.
He was quite attractive as well.
Dirty blonde hair, blue eyes, really tall.
Who am I kidding? He's bloody sexy!
"Sorry, you can have it." I blushed.
"No, no. Ladies forst." he smiled in a very rugged thick Bulgarian accent.
"Thank you." I said as he handed the apple to me.
"I'm Ivan. Ivan Demitrov."
"Michelle. Michelle Fireheart."
"Vell, it vos a pleasure to meet you, Miss Fireheart." he said.
My heart practically melted.
Ivan took my hand and kissed it before he walked away.
"Somebody pinch me." I whispered.
"Okay" Danny said as he pinched the side of my arm.
"OW!" I yelped.
"You told me to!" he protested.
"I didn't mean it literally!" I said as I smacked him upside the head.
I walked down to the Quidditch Pitch with my apple in my hand.
Slytherin must have practice today because I saw Draco with Blaise Zabini on the Quidditch Pitch.
"Morning." I smiled as I saw him.
"Morning." he replied cheerfully.
"Have you had breakfast yet?" I asked as I took another bite out of my apple.
"No. But apparently, you're eating it now." Draco laughed.
"Why are you here right now? Does Slytherin have practice?" I asked.
"Nah, me and Blaise just wanted to get a head start. Why?"
"I wanted to get some studying in, if you're up for it. I'd do it with Hermione but last time we studied together she gave me whiplash."
"Haha, yeah. I have time. Meet me at the library in fifteen minutes." he smiled.
"Great" I smiled but as I was about to take a bite of my apple, Draco took it from my hand and bit it.
"Oy!" I protested.
"Later, babe." he smirked as he walked away with the apple.
I ran up to my dormitory to get my books and everything.
About ten minutes later I went to the library and looked for Draco.
When I saw him I smiled.
"Where do you want to sit?" he asked.
"How about to we sit on the floor in the middle of the aisles. It's much more peaceful there." I suggested.
I sprawled out all my books and assignments on the floor around Draco and I.
We sat on the ground and studied.
"You add moonstone powder to Draught of Peace potion right?"
"Yes, thats right." he smiled. "Michelle, I don't know why you bother to ask when you're always right. You're a brilliant witch."
I blushed and nudged him.
"You're just saying that." I smirked as I looked back down to my book, feeling my ears get hot.
"No, I'm not." he said. "It'll be a miracle if I can barely get an Acceptable on my O.W.L's"
I huffed and ruffed my hair.
~About five of studying hours later~
"Shall I go get us a snack?" I asked.
"That'd be great. Thanks."
"Alright." I smiled.
"Don't be too long, Parkinson might hunt me down." he smirked.
I laughed and went to the Great Hall.
I grabbed two green apples and went back to the library.
When I got to our spot, I saw Draco talking to a Beauxbaton girl. Part Veela, no doubt.
"Draco, I didn't know what to get you so I just got green apples." I said, catching Draco's attention.
"Hey babe." he smiled as I tossed him one of the apples.
"Ziss iz your girlfriend, I assume?" the girl asked in a thick french accent.
Draco was about to open his mouth when I said "Yes, I am. Michelle Fireheart, pleased to meet you Mademoiselle."
"Likewise." she said, smiling in an annoyed manner.
I sat down and rearranged my papers.
"Oh, you were studying, yes?" she asked.
"Yeah, would you like to join us?" I asked, trying to be polite but hoping she would say no.
"Actually, I 'ave to meet wiss someone, but sank you for ze offer."
"Sorry, I didn't quite catch your name." I smiled
"Margo iz my name." she said, seeming annoyed.
Draco wouldn't stop staring at her.
"Well, we'll see you around. Won't we Draco?" I said, grabbing Draco's attention.
"Huh?" he snapped back to reality "Oh, yes. Pleasure to meet you."
"Farewell, Monsieur Malfoy. Michelle." she said, sputtering my name like it was poison.
As she walked away, Draco stared at her.
I smacked his arm with my transfiguration book.
"What was that for?!" he demanded in a whisper.
"Why were you staring at her?!" I whisper-shouted.
"Why did you tell her you're my girlfriend?" he retorted.
"Because–" I said, thinking before I said anything again. "Because–"
I couldn't think of a reason.
"You were jealous" he accused.
"You totally were!" he said.
I opened my book and began reading.
"C'mon Michelle, don't be like that." he whined.
After about two minutes he went crazy.
"FINE!" he admitted defeat. "You weren't jealous."
I leaned my head on his shoulder and yawned.
"What time is it?" I asked.
"We've been here all day." I stated.
"I guess we have." Draco laughed.
I closed my DADA book and curled up in Draco's arms.
"Lets go to bed" I said.
"Alright, come on. Lets go." Draco agreed.
I got all my stuff together and into my book bag.
Draco slung his arm around me as we walked to Gryffindor tower.
"Pig snout." I yawned as the Fat Lady opened the door.
"With Malfoy again, I see." the Fat Lady chuckled.
We walked in.
"Wingardium Leviosa" I cast the charm to take my books to my dorm for me.
I'm so tired.
"Goodnight Draco." I said, completely boggled from sleep deprivation.
I was about to walk in when Draco grabbed me and spun me around.
Suddenly, I felt a pair of warm lips against mine.
I felt a tingling sensation rush through my entire body as if I had been shocked.
My entire body was on fire.
Draco's lips tasted like peppermint.
I wrapped my arms around Draco's neck as we went crashing into the wall.
"Ow." he muttered as his head hit the wall.
"I'm sorry." I said, feeling really guilty.
"It's alright." Draco said as he leaned in. "Where were we?"
I giggled as I kissed him once more.
"It's getting late, you'd better get to your room. Snape might do a headcount in the middle of the night."
"Alright. I'll see you in my dreams."
"Aw" I smiled as I kissed him softly.
"Goodnight, love" Draco said.
"Goodnight, Draco." I smiled before he left.
I walked into my room and saw Hermione asleep.
I put my fingers to my lips where his had been, the sweet taste of peppermint still lingered on my lips.
i quickly changed into a plain pink tee shirt and some pajama pants before climbing into my cold bed and drifting into a sweet deep sleep.
