Chapter 8: Bad Jokes and Threats

" And then he said, 'thats not a werewolf! Thats my wife!'"

It was after dinner and crabbe, goyle, draco, gwen and I were sitting in the common room. Crabbe and Goyle laughed hysterically at the punch line of Crabbe's joke, and so did Draco. I looked at them and frowned.

" Thats not funny."

Draco stopped laughing " Yeah Crabbe! How could you be so stupid?"

He smacked the back of his head.

" Ow! What was that for?"

" For being an idiot!"


My mind went to Harry and a tingle went up my spine. I cant wait to be his friend again. I thought. If I can bring Draco and Harry together, than maybe we can all be friends. I realized that Crabbe and Draco were fighting.

" You used to like my jokes, and now you dont because your stupid girlfriend doesn't?"

Draco punched Crabbe and he flew to the floor.

"Choose your words carefully Crabbe, because someday, they will be your last."

Suddenly, I remembered what Draco had said on the train. What was I thinking? I cant get Draco and Harry to be friends, I cant even tell him about him. He'd probably want to kill him. Just then, a shrill voice pierced the air. We turned around to see none other than Pansy Parkinsen and her band of losers.

"Oh Pansy! Its gorgeous!" one said, the other sighed, "Oh Pansy, youre so lucky!"

Goyle stood up. " Oi! What's all the hubbub about over there?"

Pansy sauntered over to where we were sitting and smiled proudly showing off her new diamond encrusted wand.

"Isn't it just emaculate? Mother and Father got it for me in Paris."

She was obviously talking to Draco, but he was ignoring her because he couldn't care less. Well, somebody's got to say something to make her go away, it might as well be me.

" It's gorgeous Pansy." she smiled. "Isn't it though."

I looked at Draco who had an evil smirk on his face. He sat down next to me and put his arm around my shoulders.

" Oh, really? You like that hon?"

I smiled hesitantley, not really sure where he was going with this.

"Sure I do."

He pulled me closer and smiled.

" Maybe that's what Ill get you for your birthday, but insted-" he looked up at Pansy. " I'll get you real diamonds."

Pansy's face turned a deep shade of red, and she hurried off before anyone could see the tears in her eyes. I turned to Draco, who was giggling like a little kid.

"Was that really necessary?"

" Oh come on Nats, lighten up, its just a little fun.You havent forgotten last summer have you? "

"No. I haven't." I said, as the very embarrising memories flooded to me, I had to close my eyes to keep myself from looking at Goyle. "But this is different Draco, I don't need any more enemys."

Draco chuckled softly, "Too late for that babe, Pansy's already your enemy, plus the hundreds of other girls at Hogwarts who love me. You dont stand a chance of befriending them all. Fortunatly for you, I will always be here to offer my protection, becuse no one hates on my girl and gets away with it."

Next to me, Gwen sighed." oh how sweet!" but I ignored her.

"Well then, who's going to watch and make sure that your adoring fan girls don't kill me in my sleep?"

Draco thought for a moment, then furrowed his brow.

"That's what I thought."

I got up from the couch and walked up to the stairs.

"Where are you going? Youre not that mad are you?" Draco asked franticly.

"No I'm not, I just want to make sure Pansy's okay."

He sighed "Go ahead, but it wont do any good, as long as were together, shell always hate you."

I walked into Pansy's room and saw her lying on her bed holding her wand.


She turned around violently and glared at me

"What the bloody hell do you want?"

" I just wanted to apologize to you for what Draco did, it was very immature, and he only did it because he thinks you dont like me."

"Well, NEWS FLASH! I don't!"

"Yeah, well I guess I should go now."

I turned to walk out the door when she said."Be careful."

"Be careful of what?" I asked looking at her.

"Be careful of Draco."


"Because as soon as you start to bore him, he'll drop you like a hot potato and I'll be right there to fall into his arms!"
