Slythindor Love ~ Draco Malfoy Love Story for Rose's HP Contest (Finished)
Defence against Draco
I was sitting at the Gryffindor table with harry the next morning looking at our timetables for this year. â€œYuck, do they have to give us care of magical creatures with the slytherinsâ€ harry said pulling a face â€œI donâ€™t know if I can handle even one period with him. Thank god thatâ€™s the only lesson I with him this year. I feel sorry for you Chrissy how will you manage three lessons a week with him.â€
â€œI donâ€™t know but whoever split the houses had it out for me. Why have they split houses anyway?â€ I asked the table in general
â€œ It will be so that the students from Beauxbatons and Durmstrang can easily fit into the lessons if need beâ€ Hermione said, as always sounding like she was quoting a textbook. At that moment the bell went for first period, I stood up and headed towards my first lesson DADA whilst harry, Ron and Hermione all went the other way to potions.
I arrived at the DADA class room to see lavender and Seamus standing there, I had always found lavender a bit tedious but it was a relief to see I had some one I knew in my class and I had always gotten on with Seamus, I walked over to them and Seamus smiled at me â€œso..â€ lavender said turning to me looking desperate for a gossip â€œ what do you think of the new teacher, I personally think heâ€™s a bit creepy, Parvati told me that he drinks blood out of that flask he hasâ€ I rolled my eyes. Lavender and Parvati would believe any piece of gossip given to them. â€œDonâ€™t be stupid lavenderâ€ Seamus said in his cute iris drawl as we walked into the classroom and took a seat together â€œDumbledore would never hire someone who drank blood as a teacher. I opened my mouth to point out that he had hired a were wolf last year but I was cut of my mad eye moodyâ€™s loud bark
â€œI DONâ€™T THINK SO, I will be choosing your seats this year and I donâ€™t want to hear you complain or requests to switch. You will be happy with what I give you, is that under stoodâ€ the class all muttered different forms of the word yes. Moody looked down at his roll and started calling out names.
â€œBrown you will be withâ€¦ Finneganâ€ lavender smiled relived at Seamus.
â€œBullstrode withâ€¦ longbottom, and malfoyâ€¦â€ I closed my eyes begging him not to read out my name â€œMcDonaldâ€ I felt my head hit the table in disbelief, of all the people to be seated next to it had to be him. He came and took his seat next to me and gave me a haughty look I reached into my bag to pull out my book, to realise it wasnâ€™t there. It was just like me to forget my textbook on the first day back.
â€œHere you can share mineâ€ malfoy whispered in my ear pushing his book towards me. I nodded at him refusing to make eye contact with him, It didnâ€™t matter how nice he was being he was a slytherin. No not only a slytherin he was malfoy.
Neither of us said anything else to each other until about half way through the lesson when moody approached us. â€œmalfoy!â€ he barked. â€œ Would you like to explain to us why there is only one book on your tableâ€ I let out an inward groan. I didnâ€™t want to know what types of punishments mad eye handed out. But to my surprise
â€œI forgot my book sirâ€ malfoy lied with a smirk â€œMcDonald here kindly let me share hersâ€ I look at him in disbelief. What was his angle? Why was he lying for me?
â€œ10 points from slytherin. Think youâ€™re above the rules â€˜ey. I should have known youâ€™d be just like your father.â€ Moody said eyeing him with a look of distaste. Once moody had moved a way I leaned over to him
â€œWhat was that aboutâ€ I muttered to malfoy
â€œWhat am I not aloud to do a good dead once in a whileâ€ he said smirking down at me
â€œI know you, you never do anything unless you can get something out of it. What do you want?â€ I said stubbornly
â€œCute. You think you know me. Maybe I just want the company of a girl who isnâ€™t pansyâ€ he challenged his grey eyes losing some of there cold taunting air â€œmaybe Iâ€™m sick of all the girls I know being cruel and manipulativeâ€
â€œIs she? I meanâ€¦ are you two together?â€ I said transfixed by his eyes, he ran a slim hand through his white hair.
â€œIts complex.â€ He said looking down trodden â€œour families are old friends and weâ€™re expected too. But lets face it she horrid. And when I told my family I wanted no part of it these holidays, It didnâ€™t go over to wellâ€ I reached out and put a hand on his shoulder. For a moment I forgot that he was Draco malfoy, I felt the need to reach out to him, to help him. He lifted a hand and pulled a curl of my faceâ€¦ then the bell went. We both jumped away from each other
â€œHereâ€ he said reaching for my bag â€œlet me walk you to our next classâ€ I pulled my bag away from his reach
â€œIâ€™m fineâ€ I said sharply before running out of the room. Not wanting to face what had just happened.
