 “Sweetheart, wake up.” 

I groaned and buried my head into the pillow. 

“Rex, it’s time to get up. The Malfoys will be here any minute.” 

I rubbed my eyes and looked up at him. “What? Why?” 

“Mum told them last night what happened. They want to make sure you’re alright.” 

“Well, I’m alive.” 

“Draco’s worried sick.” 

I sighed. “He’s such a little baby.” 

“He cares about you.” 

“Yeah, and you do too, but I didn't see you freaking out about what happened.” 

He smiled sadly and ran a finger down my cheek. “You didn’t see me when I brought your trunk upstairs. I punched a wall and broke practically everything in this room. Dad healed my hand and repaired everything.” 

“Now why would you do that?” 

Blaise groaned. “Because I couldn't stand the fact that you had been hurt.” He leaned closer to me. “They were so mean and rude to me, I could only imagine how they acted towards you.” 

With that, he sweetly kissed me on the lips. “I love you.” he said. 

I smiled. “I love you more.” 

“Nah, that’s impossible because I love you the most.” 


“Eww, you guys are so disgusting with all that mushy crap! Do you always insist on doing it in front of me?!” 

I laughed. “Well Draco, we didn't know you were there. We can get worse if you want.” 

“No! No! NO! Can you go back to being my best friends instead of a lovesick couple?”

I finally pushed the covers off of me, got out of bed, and grabbed an outfit out of my trunk. “Oh Dray, you’ll find a girl that makes you lovesick. And then Blaise and I can complain for once.” 

“I do NOT complain.” 

“Dude, you complain more than Pansy sometimes.” Blaise said. 

“Why do you two always insist on picking on me?” he whined. 

“Draco, stop acting like a girl and join us for breakfast.” Lucius drawled from the doorway. “I didn’t have a daughter and I surely do not want one now.” 

Blaise and I busted out laughing as Draco’s jaw dropped. Lucius had a satisfying smirk on his face. 


“I said come down for breakfast.” he repeated and walked out of the room.

“Did he…just….call me a GIRL?!? My own father called me a girl?” 

“Looks like it mate.” Blaise said. I hadn’t stopped laughing. 

“Oh Rex, just shut up!” Draco mumbled. That made me laugh even harder. “I know there’s a cheering charm, but is there a charm to stop someone from laughing?” he asked Blaise. 

“Does it look like I have a clue? I do as much studying as you!” he replied while another smirk appeared on his face.

Draco rolled his eyes and walked over to me. “Stop laughing.” I shook my head. “Do you think I’m a girl too?” I ignored him and walked out of the room laughing. “Don’t walk away from me!” 

“I have to go change!” I replied. 

“Well change after you answer me.” 

“Draco, how many times do I have to tell you that you can’t tell me what to do?” I asked with a sweet smile on my face. 

He groaned and stomped his way down the hall and down the stairs to the kitchen. Blaise came out of the room with a smirk on his face. 

“He never learns.” 

I shook my head. “Do you think that he realizes I’m okay now?”

When we walked into the kitchen, Draco was sitting at the table pouting next to Lucius, who wore a smirk on his face. Narcissa looked up at us and tears formed in her eyes. 

“Rex, you are okay!” she exclaimed. 

Amy turned from the stove and smiled at me. “Yes,” she said. “Our girl sure is fine.” 

I took my seat across from Dray, and he looked away from me. “Oh, is the wittle girly upset?” I asked mockingly. He then glared at me. “Oh, it looks like she’s going to throw a temper tantrum.” 

He closed his eyes, took a deep breath, stood up, and then walked out of the room. I looked at Blaise curiously. 

“I think you did overkill on the girl thing.” 

I rolled my eyes. “I’m allowed to make fun of him. He’ll get over it.” 

Blaise chuckled. “Babe, that’s not the point.” 

Okay, now I was really confused. 

“He’s upset because he thinks his manliness is in question.” 

“How is Draco manly?” I asked. 

Lucius then burst out laughing. We all looked at him funny. He never did that. He quickly regained his composure when he noticed us staring.

We ate breakfast and Draco hadn’t come back yet. I sighed and excused myself to go find him. He was sitting in the library looking down at the floor. His head snapped up when the door creaked and he glared at me. He turned away. 


No answer. 

“Look, I didn’t mean to upset you.” 

“Yeah, well you did.” he said coldly. 

“I was just teasing.” “

Well you did that enough upstairs. There was no need to do in front of everyone; especially my father!” 

“He was the one who started it!”

I couldn't believe he was getting mad at me. I may have gone overkill, but teasing him is something I always did. If I wasn't finding an opportunity to poke fun at Dray or Blaise, they could automatically tell something was wrong. I thought he cared if I was alright or not. 

“Draco, I don’t want to do this. I’ve already had to deal with Potter and Weasel. I don’t want it from my best friend.” 

He turned around and his eyes were stern. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. I couldn’t handle that look in eyes knowing I put it there. His arms wrapped me up in a hug. 

He chuckled. “I guess if you’re poking fun, you are yourself. I don’t have to worry that you’re not okay.” 

I stepped out of his embrace. “Come on, you missed breakfast. I’ll cook you something to make it up to you.” 

He smiled. “Thanks. I should find Blaise too. Just so you know, we’re still going to beat the crap out of Potty and Weasel no matter what.” 

I grinned. “I wouldn’t have you two any other way.”
