Chapter 7: Meeting Marcus

"Just calm down! You'll be fine. I promise!"

Draco said, putting his hands on my shoulders. We were standing outside the doors of the Great Hall.

"First years! Follow me! This way now!"

Professor McGonnagal walked up to us.

" Good Evening Mr. Malfoy." Draco nodded, she looked at me.

"Is this our Miss Porter?" Draco smiled at me.

"Yes! That's her!" McGonnagal smiled, " Very well then, come along Miss Porter, you'll be going first."

She pulled me away from Draco and I looked at him with terror filled eyes. He just laughed.

" Don't worry Nats. You'll be fine!"

"No I'm not! Im gonna barf!"

I heard Draco's laugh but that was all. McGonnagal led me up to the front of the room along with the first years. Dumbledore stood up and shushed everyone. I saw Draco in the back, quickly rush to his seat. When he saw me, he gave me a thumbs up. I smiled, trying to look calm on the outside, because on the inside, I was screaming.

"Welcome to another exciting year at Hogwarts! I hope you all had an enjoyable summer. Now, before we begin the sorting, we have a fifth year student, who is joining our school. Everyone please welcome Miss Natalee Porter."

Everyone clapped and McGonnagal pushed me up the stairs. At the Gryffindor table, Harry nudged Ron's arm.

"OW!" Ron said rubbing his arm.

"Sh! Ron listen to me. That girl..."

Ron smiled "I know! She's hot isnt she!"

"No! I mean yes, well, kinda, Ron, will you just listen to me? I know that girl, we were friends before I came to Hogwarts.

"Really? Uh, some guys have all the luck!"

Harry rolled his eyes and looked back to Dumbledore.

" However, Miss Porter will not be sorted tonight. Instead, she will be placed in Slytherin house by request of one of our schools most wealthy benefactors."

Everyone at the Slytherin table clapped and wolf whistled, inculding Malfoy, Harry noticed.

"You may take your seat now, Miss Porter."

I walked down the steps and sat at the Slytherin table.

"And now, we will begin the sorting."

The guy sitting next to me tapped my shoulder and I turned around.

"So, we're in the same house." He said, smiling a smile that revieled his green teeth.

"Yeah it would appear so."

"Im Marcus Flint, Quidditch captain for Slytherin, and you my dear are an extremley gorgeous girl, maybe sometime we could go to the room of requirements and... snog."

He smiled as he put his arm around my shoulder, I was just about to tell him off, when the girl next to him handed him a note. He read it and went pale, looked down the table and folded the letter, but not before I could read it. It was from Draco, and it said...

"Flint, if you dont stop hitting on my girlfriend, you wont need one, because you wont be able to reproduce."

I looked down the table at Draco, he smiled and motioned for me to come to him. I quietly moved from my seat and crouched down next to him. He hit Crabbe, who was sitting beside him.

"Make room!" He demanded, then he patted the bench.

" I saved you a seat."

"Well, how considerate of you." I said teasingly.

The girl across from Draco, smiled as I sat down.

"Hi! I'm Gwen! You must be Draco's girlfriend, he's told me so much about you!"

"He has?" I asked, looking at Draco.

For a moment, I thought I saw him blush.

"No! He hasn't!" He said quickly, giving Gwen a warning look, then turning to talk to Goyle.

"Don't mind him." I said to Gwen.

"I never do."

I laughed, "So how long have you known Draco?"

"Oh, since first year. I'm Gregory's sister."

I winkled my nose, "Gregory?"

"Yeah, well you probably know him better as Goyle."

" Oh my God, Goyle's your brother?"

Gwen nodded her head.

"I'm so sorry!" I said as visions of the summer passed before my eyes.

This time, she wrinkled her nose.

"For what?"

"Oh, never mind."

Gwen and I continued talking through the whole sorting, and we were so caught up in our conversation, that I didnt realize Draco was staring at me . Suddenly, he reached out, pulled my face to his, and kissed me. When he pulled away, he smiled.

"What did you do that for?" I asked, shocked.

"Because I can, and it has been at least twenty minutes since our last kiss, my lips were statring to loose feeling."

Across the room, Harry was shocked.

"Ron! Ron!" He said urgently elbowing Ron in the stomach.

" Oh! What's gotten into you?"

Harry pointed to the Slytherin table. "Look!"

" Bloody Hell!"

Ron said loudly, recieving a warning look from professor McGonnagal. He lowered in his seat and whispered.

"Bloody Hell, Natalee must be Malfoy's new girlfriend that everyone's been talking about, Pansy hates her!"

Hermione looked too.

"That poor girl, dating Draco Malfoy!"

"I can't believe it!" Harry said.

"My Natalee kissing Draco Malfoy?"

Ron put his hand on Harry's shoulder.

"I guess she's moved on mate."
