Chapter 4: Muggle Lovers

One half hour into the train ride, and I was already bored. The room was way too quiet, with the exception of an occasional snore from Crabbe and I had grown tired of counting the trees. Beside me, Draco was finishing up the last of his summer homework, which he had saved until the very last possible moment, like usual. I slip my hand into his and squeezed. He squeezed back and smiled. I heard the muffled sound of a cart rolling down the hall and it stoped infront of the door, an overweight woman with graying hair, poked her head in.

" Anything from the trolley dears?"

Crabbe and Goyle instantly jumped up, grabbing their money. Draco stood up and pulled out his wallet.

"You want anything babe?" he asked.

" No thanks hon, I'm good."

I said giving him a sweet smile.

" ok."

He walked up to the door and turned around.

" You were checking me out again weren't you?"

I smiled, remembering the "tickle fight" that we had earlier.

" Maybe."

"I'll take that as a yes."

I winked at him, "Go ahead."

He walked up to the trolley and pushed Crabbe and Goyle out of the way.

"One of everything." he demanded.

I looked out the window again, wondering how I had become so lucky.

" Here I am, going to Hogwarts, the best school of magic in the world, and I am engaged to Draco Malfoy, who is not only insanley gorgeous, but my best friend. Can my life get any better?"

Suddenly I was pulled out of my thoughts by a commotion in the hall, at first I tried to ignore it, thinking it was just Draco picking on some poor first year, but I soon gave into my curiosity. I got up, and walked to the door. Draco was engaged in conversation with two other students, one who looked vaugley familiar, and another with red hair and a somewhat tattered robe.

" What are you two Gryffindors doing in the Slytherin car?"

Draco asked, his upper lip was curled as if his words were venomus.

" There is no Slytherin car Malfoy! "

the red head said.

"Oh, shove off Weasley!"

Their conversation became heated until, out of nowhere, Professor Snape appeared between them.

"Mr. Malfoy, Mr. Weasley, stop this nonesence at once."

he turned toward the two boys and smiled

" 15 points will be taken from Gryffindor."

They groaned and glared at Draco.

" From each of you."

Snape added, obviously enjoying it too much. I gave the two boys a sympathetic look and pulled Draco back into the room.

"Stupid Gryffindors! "

he said loudly as you closed the door.

" Yeah, who do they think they are, coming to the Slytherin car and picking a fight like that?"

Crabbe said. Draco ignored him. I sat down next to him and he put his arm around me.

" Who were those boys anyway?"

I asked

" No one important, just Potter and Weasley."

Goyle said.
"Yeah." Draco agreed

" Stupid muggle lovers."

Goyle and Draco exchanged high fives.

" Wait, who?" I asked sitting up.

" Harry Potter, the nerd with glasses." Draco said.

"Bloody Hell" I whispered under my breath.

" Are you okay Nat? You look like you wanna barf."

"Huh? No, Im fine, definatley not gonna barf."

He looked at me like I was crazy.

"okay then." he tore open a bagof Bertie Botts Every Flavored Beans and handed it to me.

"Want one?"

" No thanks, hey Draco, um I was wondering why exactly do you hate Harry Potter?" he looked at me for a moment.

" You mean besides the fact that they're stupid Gryffindor muggle lovers?" I shook my head. He looked away. " No reason."

"Theres got to be a reason besides that." I thought.

Crabbe snorted. " Of course there is a reason Malfoy! Don't you remember?"

Then he turned to me. " Draco and Harry have been sworn enemys ever since first year, when Draco tried to get him to join with us and Harry turned him down infront of everyone."

I was amused and smiled. " Oh, is that why? He bruised your ego?"

Draco rolled his eyes.

" No thats not it, that's not it at all. I told you, they're a bunch of stupid muggle lovers and even if he was a Slytherin, I'd still hate him."
