THE MAGIC BEGINS » 4. Favourite Ship
Draco Malfoy & Hermione Granger
The world is too heavy, too big for my shoulders, come take this weight off me now.
Darling, don’t you see?
While this has been hard enough for you,
It’s been hard enough for me.
If I had the chance to start again
Then you would be the one I’d come and find
Like the poster of Berlin on my wall
Maybe there’s a chance our walls might fall
Slowly, Draco pries my hands off him and passes me to Harry, who wraps a comforting arm around my shoulder. I lean back against him, too drained to do anything about the hell that’s about to break loose in here.
There’s a new edge in Draco’s voice I’ve never heard before, “I’m only going to ask this once, Weasley, so you better lose the fucking attitude and give me a good answer because it just may be your last: What did you say to her?” Draco asks, eyes blazing with rage.
“Malfoy, why do you even—” Ron pauses, “Oh, I see, you’re the new boyfriend,” he whispers sourly…and then the bomb that is Ronald Weasley detonates. Angry blue eyes whip to me and he practically screams in my face, “You’re dating him! I can’t believe you’re dating him! He taunted us throughout school, he called you a Mudblood, he almost killed us, Hermione, and now you’re with him? You’re stupid, this is stupid…I can’t even believe this bullshit! Do you even know what today was?”
“Today hasn’t been significant to me in a while. It’s just a normal day.” I admit coldly.
Disgusted, “Why don’t you just twist the knife in deeper? How long?” he yells.
“How long what, Ron?” I fold my arms.
“How long have you been with him?” He screams.
“Around four and a half months,” Draco replies calmly.
Thank Merlin for Harry’s training as an Auror, he knew exactly what was about to happen, side steps me, and stops Ron before he could attack Draco. “Four and a half months! Four and a half bleeding months! Did you even take a break to get over me or did you just run right into his bed? He’s a Malfoy, Hermione! Don’t be so stupid! He’s going to hurt you and when he does—”
“I won’t!” Draco fumes with searing authority in his voice, “Don’t you dare insinuate that I will because I won’t hurt her, Weasley. I love her I would kill myself before I harm one bloody hair on her head!”
The room…no, wait, the world freezes.
