The next weeks that followed brought lots of guys being interested in Alex. She had been asked to Hogsmeade and parties by many boys in seventh and sixth year. Draco kept trying to kiss her and hug her in the corridors. She had gotten a boyfriend for a week to try and stop Draco from pursuing her but that just made him try harder. Scarlett and Harry were still together and Scarlett was still mad at her. It was the day before Halloween and Alex was walking to Defense Against the Dark Arts. Unfortunately for her, Harry, Scarlett, and Draco all were in this class with her.

As she entered the door, Draco wrapped his arm around her waist and held her close to him. She knew all too well what his little tricks were and she immediately removed his arm from her body and continued to her seat. Draco followed her and sat in the seat next to her.

"Draco, your seat is over there" Alex said, pointing across the room.

"Not anymore. This is my seat now." he said, smirking.

"Look, what do you want?" this was something she asked him on a daily basis. She looked passed him where the other students in the class were filing in.

"You..." This was his usual answer but this time he added something new. "to be my girlfriend." he said calmly.

The whole time he was saying this, Alex was watching Scarlett and Harry. They were sitting across the room and Scarlett was sucking on Harry's neck. When Harry caught Alex looking at them, he gave her a dirty look. He had been doing that a lot lately. Alex felt a pang in her heart every time he looked at her like that. She had such a good time with him on their date (which felt like a century ago to her) and she wished she had never gone to the party. Then she noticed Scarlett giving her the same dirty look she got every morning in the girls' dormitory. The sadness and regret were replaced by anger. She took a deep breath and opened her mouth.

"I'd love to" she said to Draco.

"I know I know..." Draco started, hearing the same words of hate that she said to him every day. But then he realized that what he heard in his mind wasn't what had come out of her mouth. "Wait, what did you say?" he asked, half surprised, half confused.

"I said I'd love to be your girlfriend," she said and before he could answer, she kissed him. She holes being burned into her by Scarlett. Although her eyes were closed, she could somehow tell that Harry wasn't glaring at her.

Draco kissed her back happily. He couldn't believe that he was finally getting what he wanted. 'I win again' he thought to himself.

"Mr. Malfoy and.. Miss Hawthorne? I would have thought better of you." Professor Howe said in disappointment. He was this year's new DADA teacher. "Now class, take out your books and turn to chapter 4."

Draco and Alex turned their attention to the teacher but Draco didn't miss the chance to put his hand on her knee. Alex was too busy taking notes on chapter 4 to push it away although she did try to shake it off which made him grab on tighter.

The whole class, Alex caught Harry giving her longing looks. It was as if he has changed his attitude towards her in an instant. These looks made Alex very confused. She knew that she still had feelings for Harry and it hurt her to see him with Scarlett. By the end of class, she had no better grasp on her feelings and to top it off, Draco was hanging all over her.

"Do you have a free period next?" he asked her while he put his arm low on her waist.

She nodded. "I need to go to the library to start my Potions essay." she said plainly.

"I'll meet you there. I have to stop by the common room first." he said, squeezing her waist gently. He smirked at her and planted a kiss firmly on her lips. She smiled weakly before he departed. Alex sighed in relief when he was out of sight. She was going to have to get used to their relationship. She reached the library and picked her favorite table by the window. She took out her textbook and a piece of parchment and got to work.


Draco made his way slowly to the Slytherin common room in the dungeons. He rounded a corner after sending a very threatening look at a few first years and ran into the person who he had been looking for.

"Ah, Blaise. Just the man I was coming to see." he said cheerfully. Blaise had spent the period in the hospital wing due to a vomiting hex gone astray.

"I was looking for you to. I hear that you finally got your way with Alex," Blaise said, smirking in approval.

"Yep. I told you she wanted me. Now all I got to do is keep her with me." he said as they turned and walked back towards the magic staircases. "Which obviously shouldn't be a problem," he added. Both boys laughed as they ascended the stairs.

"Where are you going now?" Blaise asked.

"Oh, I'm meeting Alex at the library. Want to-" he was cut off by a piercing voice cutting through the hall.

"Draco, Blaise! How nice to see you!" Pansy Parkinson squealed as she caught up to them. Draco had been doing a good job of ignoring her the past two months but she was getting more and more persistent. She was hoping that he would ask for her hand in marriage at the end of their seventh year, as was expected of him by both their families. What she didn't know was that he hated her annoying voice so much it made him want to torture her right there and then.

"Hello Pansy" they chorused, wincing as she threw herself at them for hugs.

"Hey Draco, don't you have to be somewhere right now?" Blaise asked, shooting him a look that said 'you owe me'. Draco followed his lead and made a show of looking at his watch.

"Oh shit, your right Blaise. I'm late!" Draco said dramatically. He bid them a quick goodbye and took off running down the corridor to the library.

Pansy pouted as he left. "I wish he would have stayed." she said, folding her arms across her chest and sticking out her bottom lip slightly.

"He had a very important.. er .. thing to do. Speaking of important, I have to go too. See ya Pansy." he called over his shoulder as he took off down the corridor the same way Draco had gone. Pansy was left standing there alone, pouting.


In the library, Alex had almost finished the first 8 inches of the 16 inch essay. She had forgotten what had happened during DADA and was almost thinking things were back to normal. She was so caught up in her work that she didn't even notice Draco walking into the library.

Harry had also walked into the library and was sitting at a table across the room from Alex, trying to muster the courage to talk to her. He had to get his feelings out in the open, especially now that she had started dating Draco. He just hope that she would forgive her for dating Scarlett and betraying her trust, even though they weren't together when he did hook up with Scarlett. Harry was shaken from his thoughts as he heard the door to the library creek loudly as it opened. He looked up to see his enemy, Draco. Harry sighed as Draco strolled over to Alex and planted a kiss on her lips. He grabbed his bag and hurried out of the library, not able to look at the couple for one more second without risking embarrassing himself out of jealousy.

Draco walked into the library three minutes after he left Pansy with Blaise. He immediately headed to the table that Alex was sitting at and gave her a sweet kiss on the lips. She obviously didn't see him coming because she was rather surprised by the kiss.

"Miss me?" he asked her, smirking as he sat down in the seat next to her.

"Y-Yeah" she said, hesitating ever so slightly. Draco didn't seem to notice.

"How's the essay coming?" he asked, looking at what she was writing.

"Fine," she said, turning the page in her textbook. Draco seemed to notice that she wasn't talking very much.

"Do you think you could help me with mine when your done?" Draco asked.

"Look, I'm not going to do it for you if that's what your asking." she said, forgetting that they were in a relationship once again.

"What's your problem? Are you mad at me already or something?" Draco asked, getting slightly defensive.

Alex felt guilty. She was his girlfriend now after all. She should start to get used to it because that probably wasn't going to change any time soon. "No, I'm sorry. I'm just a little stressed out that's all." she lied. She forced a smile and scooted closer to him. Draco gave her one last skeptical look before he took the opportunity to kiss her.

They spent the rest of the free period working on their essays (and snogging) until the bell rang, signifying lunch time. People began to file out of their classrooms and into the halls. Draco and Alex walked out of the room with their bags on their shoulders and his arm around her waist.

After stopping by their own common rooms, they met up again and continued on their way to the Great Hall. They walked into the hall and parted with a sweet kiss in front of mostly the whole student body. Alex walked over to the Ravenclaw table and was immediately met by Padma.

"Is it true you are going out with Draco?" Padma exclaimed.

Alex looked over to the Slytherin table and smiled at Draco who had sat down next to his best friend Blaise. "Yeah," she said turning back to Padma.

"Are you mental? Haven't you been the one stressing because Scarlett is still rubbing it in your face that she got Harry? And now you are going out with the guy she's been after this whole time?" Padma asked, frantically.

"Padma, you know how they say that you can't fight fire with fire? Well I've been standing back for too long. It's time to fight back and I don't care if it's wrong." Alex said firmly.

Padma was taken by surprise. She never thought she would ever see Alex with such determination in her eyes. She decided to let her win. "Alright. As long as you know what your doing." she said, ending the conversation.

"I do," Alex said, finally sitting down and filling her plate with food. Padma sat next to her and began to talk to her about how she and her sister had sneaked out to Hogsmeade the day before to see the boys they had met over the summer.

Scarlett was a little ways down the bench, listening intently to Padma and Alex's conversation. She wanted to find out everything she could about why Alex accepted Draco's proposal. Unfortunately for her, Alex had lowered her voice so she couldn't hear her. When they started talking at a normal volume again, they were off the subject that was worth listening to.

"Becky, why do you think she's going out with him?" Scarlett asked, knowing that Becky would say something to make her feel better. At that same time Harry had sat next to her and put his arm around her shoulders. She leaned against him smiling slightly.

"Because, she's a bitch," Becky replied mercilessly.

Harry removed his arm from Scarlett's shoulder in outrage before he knew what he was doing. "What?" he exclaimed. When Becky and Scarlett gave him confused and dirty looks he remembered that he was supposed to be with Scarlett at the moment. "I-I mean isn't that a little harsh?" he asked, hoping to save himself.

"No!" Becky said loudly in disbelief.

"Harry, you know how we feel about that little whore. I don't it's too harsh after what she did to both of u- I mean you, do you?" Scarlett said, giving him a sweet smile.

Harry shook his head. "No your right, I don't know what I was thinking" he said, forcing a smile at her. She kissed his lips and returned her place against him. He replaced his arm around her shoulder regretfully and sent a longing look towards Alex.

Draco sat next to Blaise at the Slytherin table. He was across from his bodyguards Crabbe and Goyle. They weren't really good friends but they were good to have around for protection. And his father always wanted him to have them around.

"Draco!" Pansy said, sitting herself down on the other side of Draco.

"What do you want Pansy?" he asked, in a bored tone.

"I wanted to know if you wanted to spend tomorrow with me." she stated, batting her eyelashes.

BBlaise rolled his eyes but Draco opened his mouth. "What's tomorrow?" he asked, having completely forgotten.

"It's Halloween silly!" she said, swatting his arm playfully.

"I can't" he said plainly. Pansy just didn't get the hint.

"Why not? Don't you want to spend time with your future wife?" Pansy asked, pouting once more. This caused Blaise to spit out the pumpkin juice he was drinking and choke.

"You alright mate?" asked Draco who completely ignored Pansy's last comment.

"Draco?" Pansy asked, looking for an answer this time.

"He can't Pansy, he doesn't like you. Actually no one does. And besides, he has a girlfriend." Blaise, who had recovered and was getting rather annoyed with the girl, exclaimed.

"What? How could this be? You're supposed to be with me and we're supposed to live together forever!" Pansy said, devastated at the news.

"Well Blaise is right. I don't like you." Draco said coldly, staring Pansy down.

"I hate you!" she yelled, storming from the Great Hall. Draco and Blaise laughed as she exited. Alex looked over at Draco for some hint to what had happened and she caught his eye. He winked at her and smiled. Scarlett watched the whole thing with anger burning inside her. Little that she knew, the boy sitting next to her was feeling the same thing. Harry watched in jealously as Alex laughed with Draco. Life at Hogwarts couldn't get more complicated.
