    ~Slight Winter Sighs

    I didn’t know why I fled. I just did. Was it because I felt guilty? That I betrayed Ron? But… Ron betrayed me too…
    Something clicked in my mind and as evil as it was, I wanted to go along with it. That’d make Ron feel guilty and hurt. I’d get payback for what he did to my heart and me. Although… my plan would involve Malfoy… I mean, Draco.

    So step number one of my plan was Malfoy.
    What else could I do?
    I did a 180° turn and headed back to my room, where I knew Draco would be. He was still in shock when I drew back, I could tell.

    If my plan went flawlessly, Ron, not to mention the rest of the Hogwarts population, will be shocked to their life’s end on Monday morning…

    ~-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-~


    As I slowly trudged back to my room, I felt my heart twisting inside me. If I really were to put his plan to action, Draco was sure to be crushed and hurt by the end of it. By the way he kissed me just now, I could tell he had fallen for me… Of course I had already realized this long ago…

    [Flashbacks]

    @5th Year@


    “What?!!”
    “Huh?”
    “Why are you staring at me like that?!”
    “I-I am not!”
    “You were to!”
    “I was not!
    “Yes you were!
    “No, I wasn’t, Granger!!”
    “Oh, I give up on you!”


    @6th Year@


    “My god, Malfoy, stop staring at me in class! I don’t have a hole at the back of my head, so quit it!”
    “Like anybody would want to stare at you, Granger.”
    “But you did.”
    “I did NOT!!”
    “We’re squabbling like kids. Alright, just quit looking at me!”
    “I DID NO-“
    “I get it, I get it!!”


    @7th Year@

    “…and so we should try to be at peace so as to cooperate as Heads, do you get me?”
    “Sure, sure..”
    *Rubs nose* “Alright, good, so now we have to- to… *sneeze* to mainta-“
    “Granger, are you sick?”
    “Huh? What, me sick?”
    “Well, you sneezed just now.”
    “Well, yeah, just a little…”
    *Sighs* “Look, if you’re sick, I’ll do your patrol areas tonight, okay? Just get some rest.”


    [Flashbacks end]

    Of course there’d been more instances Draco was staring at me. It was fairly easy to catch him staring… He possesses these really beautiful eyes and they are really obvious even a mile away. They turn sliver with a slight shade of blue when his face lights up with mischievous intelligence but other times, they turn stormy grey If he was jealous or agitated, his eyes dim down but a slight spark still can be seen somewhere in there. That was the look he often gave me whenever I was with Ron. At first, I’d shake off the feeling that he actually liked me. But slowly after that, he was being nicer and kinder to me, and I couldn’t help but wonder… Malfoy civil towards me? Towards a muggleborn?

    After the first month of being a 7th year, I was fully convinced he held feelings for me. He was always finding time to spend time with me in the Head’s common room. When I was out with Ron, he would wait for me to get back. I was forever wondering though… but I didn’t dare to ask him, I mean, what was I to say?
    “Hey, Malfoy, do you like me?”
    No, that’d be too awkward. But still, he had been staring at me from 5th year. It was creepy, I tell you, to be stared at all the time. Furthermore, its your enemy who’s staring at you.
    It was in 6th year that I hooked up with Ron and Malfoy’s been staring daggers at Ron ever since. I mean, he was nearly always glaring at Ron but seeing the look on his face he made when Ron was with me, I’d wonder if he would ever attack him.
    Still, now it was the second month of my 7th year and my dear, darling boyfriend had just betrayed my love. I was right there, wondering why he was so late for our nightly stroll before curfew when I saw him with Lavender. I was right there when he kissed her and I was certain my heart had just collapsed and stopped still for a fraction of a second.
    Then I ran.
    I ran away from the scene, ran away from him, from the person I held so dear. Curse my cowardice and me! I should’ve confronted him, made him squirm at being caught, made him feel guilty. But a tiny part of me wanted to spare him the pain. Why? Simply because I didn’t want to hurt him.
    But he sure as hell hurt me!
    I could feel that emotional pain throbbing through my every vein, suffocating me. My cries and sobs were getting louder and my breathing was staring to grow faint. I wasn’t sure if it was past curfew that time but I hid anyway. I wrenched open a broom cupboard and squeezed myself in, desperate to hide from the truth. To hide from all the lies he said.
    To hide from reality.
    Then I wake up in my bed and obviously, Malfoy had carried me there. He was probably worried so he sneaked round the school, trying to look for me.
    So he cared for me.
    That was all I needed to know for my plan to work.
    Step number one was Malfoy.
    Step number two was seducing.

    “Dra-Draco?”
    He whipped his head round so fast that he cricked his neck. His eyes had been widened due to what I had just called him by.
    “Uh... Are- are you on drugs or did you take a heavy dose of firewhisky?”
    “Uh, neither… and I’m sorry for, uh, running…”
    “Oh.”

    Then...
    -silence-

    Draco was looking extremely uncomfortable.
    “Ah... do ya wanna go to Hogsmede… ...with.. me?”
    The last two words were barely audible but I heard it anyway. Putting on my best smile, I replied with a simple nod of my head and boy, did his eyes light up. So I hadn't seduced... but he asked me out so I guess it if i really had seduced him, it would still lead to him asking me out anyway...

    Due to the fact that it was freezing, majority of the people were squeezed in the Three Broomsticks so not many people were left on the streets. Those who were on the streets however, nearly fainted or died of shock when they saw Draco with me, much like Hannah Abott, whose eyes were popping out of her sockets. I didn’t care, however. I just wanted Ron to come strolling by.
    And soon enough, my wish came true.
    The door to the Three Broomsticks opened and Ron came out, holding a bottle of butterbeer. He glanced up the street and when he saw me with Draco, his eyes went wide. I saw Draco smirking at out of the corner of my eye and I smiled ever so sweetly at Ron. He was still trying to digest this bit of information, I knew. His mouth was partially open and and eyes were, well… wide. Then as we were about to walk away, Ron snapped back to earth. He ran after us and grabbed my elbow, marched off, pulling me away from Draco.
    “Ronald, let go! Stop pulling me! Ron!!”
    I wrenched my arm out of his too-tight grasp and glared at him. He turned around to face Malfoy and he looked positively livid.
    “Listen Ferret face, if you ever dare to ask Hermione out again, I swear wi-”
    “Shut up, Ron, leave him out of it!”
    Ron stopped and his eyes bulged out. Then slowly turned his head towards me.
    “Did you just- just defend ferret face?! What’s gotten into you?”
    “What’s gotten into me?” I mimicked him. “What’s gotten into me?? I’ll tell you what! Where were you last night? Why were you late? What were you doing?? Answer all my questions and then I’ll answer yours!”
    Ron didn’t reply. He stared straight into space, not looking at me, nor at Draco.
    “Loss for words, my dear? Like I said, answer my questions and I’ll answer yours!” I grabbed Malfoy’s hand and led him away, leaving Ron standing in the snow and frost. Although my eyebrows were knitted together and my eyes had a fiery spark in them, I was positively cheering inside. Mission one was accomplished! Ron was jealous! My next mission was to make him feel guilty. Only then will he learn his lesson!
    As the saying goes, “You’ll never know how precious something is until you lose it.” In other words, he’ll never know how precious I am until he loses me.
    Although… there is a big flaw in my plan…
    If he were to learn his lesson… would I go back to him or stay with Draco?
    At first my plan was to dump Draco… but that’s plain mean. Furthermore, I was practically melting when he kissed me. Ron was never like that to me… he never really… wants me… how you say… desire me….
    But Draco did.
    I sighed in frustration and confusion only to have Draco peer in my face and ask, “Are you alright?”
    Sliver eyes… in the night
    I gave him a brief nod and as he gave me a grin, the poem surfaced in my mind again.
    of shining armour is my knight …
    I sighed inwardly.
    The stupid poem I wrote in my grade school days kept coming to my mind. I had gotten an A on it and I was so proud of it. But now, it reminded me a little of Draco.
    Just then my stomach grumbled. I blushed a little and he gave me smile. A real, genuine smile. To tell you the truth, i've never seen Draco smile. His trademark was smirking and scowling and out of these two, his scowl somehow seems more like the smile he was giving me. I don't mean it in an unkind way but... it was really... weird to see him smiling...
    I giggled a little and marched off to Madam Pudifoot’s. He looked rather surprised to be led into such a “romantic” little place. I had my reasons though. I wanted to wait till Monday to let everyone know of my new “relationship”. I didn’t want people buzzing around me on Sunday, the last day I would be allowed to rest before my bizarre plan went to full-time action.
    As I figured, there weren’t much people in Mdm Pudifoots’. It was rather empty, except for a couple of people in their mid-thirties.
    By the time we finished lunch I was getting tired.
    Ah! It’s back, I thought dramatically, The miserable parasites had found their way back into my body! I would suffer for all eternity! Bounded to sickness and to die alone, a lone girl stripped from her rights but brought to heaven on an angel's arms... I was starting to feel feverish again so I stopped with my dramatic(and sadistic) thoughts and said to Draco, “I’m not feeling too well. I think I’ll head back to the castle now.”
    He stood up and followed me out. (Obviously he paid. What kind of gentleman made the lady pay?) By the time I reached my dorm, I was half-asleep. Draco led me to my room and I threw myself on the covers. He tucked me in and actually sat by me while I slept.
    Maybe being together with him was so torturous after all.
    Still, my goal was set.
    I would make Ron feel as much pain as he made me.
    Mr. Weasley had better watch out…

    ~-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-~


    Sliver eyes in the night

    of shining armour is my knight

    descended straight from heaven bright

    and sense of welcoming, warmth and light.

    Candles lit upon pools of love

    and soaring high

    the flight of a dove.

    Somehow, somewhere

    he is there;

    of sliver eyes in the night

    and shining armour is my knight.
