School was boring yet hectic. Everyone was in an uproar because of the Triwizard Tournament. The Nightmare Academy had once participated. They had won second place. Luckily for Tempest she had the chance to be there in persons along with Nila and Void of course.
Tempest was running around in the library. She was look in for Gorx. She wanted to say goodbye before she left, because she knew she would be gone for the whole day, maybe even a couple. She finally found Gorx, in the place she should have looked in the first place. The hallway. He was standing like he expected her. She smiled at him.
“Took you long enough.”
“Sorry, I don't know why I didn't look here first.”
“Well who cares, you're here now.” He walked over to her and kissed her tenderly. She kissed back and soon enough they were up against the wall. Tempest hugged him over his neck. Suddenly, his kisses were becoming rougher. Tempest thought nothing of it until hand started up her skirt then she had had enough. She pushed him away and then pinned him against the wall.
“Gorx what is going on with you?”
“Nothing.” He shook her off and walked past her. Tempest watched as his stood, back to her, and moved his hands through his hair in frustration.
“Tempest, look, there is no secret about how you feel about Draco and I know you, you will be spending a lot of time with him.”
“So? Look, he has a girlfriend . . . ” Tempest bit her tongue knowing that that was not the best way to start this argument.
“So? I know you, you always get your way.”
“That doesn't mean I'm about to do anything.” Tempest was growing angrier by the minute. How dare he, then she thought, as she finally realized that she was angry because he was right. Last year they had kissed. She was angry because he was right, and she hated being wrong.
“I have to go.” She walked from the passage and walked to the Headmistress' office. She was stopped short.
“Hello Zephyr,” said Louis Morte. His blue eyes were only thing that differed him from Draco.
“What do you want?”
“Nothing really, I just wanted to tell you how brilliant you looked punching Astrea.”
“Aren't you supposed to be her boyfriend?”
Tempest tried to push passed him but he held her back.
“Don't make me hurt you Louis.”
“I'd like to see you try.” He laughed and she smiled. Within seconds she had him pinned against the wall with his arm twisted behind his back.
“I'll brake it, I swear I will.”
He laughed. “Go ahead.” Tempest began to but stopped short.
“You want me to, too badly Morte. What are you up to?”
“Astrea wants revenge.”
“And this is her way of getting it? How pathetic.” Tempest let go and stepped back. “Tell her I said hi.” She walked away and them looked at her watch. Crap, she thought, she was running late. It was one of the times she was actually happy she was a vampire.
“Sorry, I'm late.”
“Zephyr, we've been waiting for like forever,” wined Nila.
“Sorry! Now, where will we be going Mistress Majika?”
“To the headmaster's office. The old man wants to explain some feeble frivolous rules. Good luck.”
They all took their handful of floo powder and where soon at Hogwarts with the Headmaster and Deputy Headmistress.
“Hey there Dumbledore. Hey didn't you teach my parents?” she asked smugly.
“First there is to be no jinxing, so spell casting, no potion making and no transfiguration of any of my students understood?”
“Of course Master Dumbledore.” She saluted and walked right on past them with a smug smiled. There was no rule to not disrespect the authority figure.
Tempest walked down the stairs followed by Nila and Void. They were all smiling. The arrogance of pureblood.
“You two, go meet me at the thing, I'm gonna go find Draco.”
“All right,” they both said in what she could tell was unsure unison.
She walked around and began to search for Draco. Crowds began o arise and Hogwarts students stared at her oddly. Yes, she was wearing a white tank top with only a fishnet over it and high heel boots. While everyone would freeze she would not. Being a vampire did her it's perks.
Out of the blue, someone grabbed her and pulled her aside into the shadows. Tempest was about to punch whoever it was before seeing who it was.
“What the bloody hell are you doing here?”
“Nice to see you too Draco. Did I ever tell you that with that attitude you sound like my sister?”
“Aidan is one of the dragons in the first task.”
She nodded. “So since I partly assisted to this competition, I am allowed to be here.” She smiled then it quickly faded. “Where's Panzy?”
“Pansy Tempest, and she's with her friends.”
“Oh well that's just to bad fo her now isn't it.” She smiled at him and so did. They both stood there for a while longer until Tempest looked at her watch.
“Crap, come on, we have to go, everything's going to start soon.”
“Huh, oh yeah, I guess we better go.”
They walked side by side in their arrogant fashions. Their hands brushed against each others often and every so slightly they would lace the tips. Tempest finally decided to cross her arms and walked alongside him.
“Zephyr! Draco!” they heard someone call. It was Nila. She was waving them down and was sitting with Crabbe, Goyle, and Void.
“Hey Nila. She anyone you know?”
“Bloody hell yes! I know people at Durmstrang, Beauxbatons and well, I forgot I don't know anyone that attends here anymore.”
“Yes well, you just saw him a couple weeks ago anyway.” Suddenly to of nowhere, someone put their hands over Tempest' eyes.
“Maddox!” Tempest tuned around and gave her cousin a warm heartfelt hug.
“I heard your dragon is one of the dragons in the tournament. Aren't you lucky.”
“Oh all right, don't feel lucky. Anyway I'll see you around okay?”
“Of course, I will only be here for two days thought.”
“Why only two?”
“I have to transport the dragons back to Romania and then I have a Quidditch match.”
“Wicked. See you around then.” As he walked off Nila jumped up.
“Oh god Nila, what the bloody hell.”
“Oh never mind.” Void began to laugh and Tempest turned her attention towards Ron. He was walking towards her.
“Draco, please be pleasant for once.”
“Not to that disgrace of a pureblood.”
“Draco . . . ”
“Fine.” She smiled and looked at Ron.
“Hello Ron. How are you?”
“All right, hello Nila. Um, I still have the spider.”
“Brilliant, see there's nothing to fear.”
He smiled. “Of course, well it was nice to see you again.”
“Wait!” yelled Nila. He stopped and looked at her. “Here's my address, write to me sometime all right. You and I have a lot in common. You know big families and all.”
They both laughed and Tempest looked at Void. His expression was completely placid.
“Anyway,” began Tempest. “It was nice to see you again.”
“Same. Goodbye Nila. Zephyr. Void.” He gave Draco a nasty look then walked past them.
“Thank you for being pleasant Draco.”
“Only for you.” He stroked her face and she blushed. Thankfully someone coughed. It was Void.
“So Draco, howes Pansy?”
“Fine I guess.” Music started and the Head Master began to talk. Everything was quiet as she ignored everything while she stood next to Draco.
She watched as the dragons came and went and the student each got their golden egg. Tempest became dreadfully frightened when Cedric Digory played. Something about him was frightful. Tempest was scared for him rather than of him. Finally she saw her dragon and smiled. She knew who was about to face him
“Aidan please be nice to Potter.”
"This is going to be very entertaining,” said Tempest aloud. Draco laughed and looked at her.
“I'm sure it will.”
Horns blew and within second came out Harry Potter. Tempest stared at him like she always did.
“Looks like someone has a crush.”
“Oh hush Draco,” she said over the crowd. “Wow, it looks like everyone really likes Potter.”
“Yeah, and to think they've all been giving Potty grief.”
“Ha Potty. Did you think of that yourself Draco?”
“I won't say.”
They both turned their attention back towards the tournament and watched in amuse man. Harry Potter had fear in his eyes.
“Give him hell Aidan.”
Tempest watched as Harry hid behind ad boulder. She really wanted to jump on Aidan and strike fear as the dragon lady. She laughed at the thought but then became startled as the image of her standing with a bloodied sword and a Death Eater mark on her arm came into her mind.
“Tempest are you all right?”
“Huh, oh yeah, don't worry.”
She turned her attention back to the match. Harry Potter was on his broom and had finally grabbed the Golden egg. No wonder the crown was cheering, she thought
Tempest was on top of Draco holding him down on the ground. Right now she wasn't completely thrilled that she was wearing a skirt. Void and Nila were laughing at the hilarious sight. This is what he got for tickling her.
“Get off me Tempete.”
“No not unless you promise to behave.”
“Like that's ever gonna happen.” She laughed and put her nose on his and for a moment they sat like that.
“Draco!” They both looked up. Standing over them was none other than Pansy. Tempest growled under her breath and continued to hold Draco down.
“Pansy, um Tempest get up...now!” Tempest did as he asked and stood glaringly. Draco pulled Pansy across the room and they began to talk in whispers. Please, she thought, I'm a vampire, if I can hear your heartbeats what makes you think I can't heart what your saying. Tempest looked at Void and Nila and smiled before twitching her ears.
“You know I don't like her Draco.”
“We're just friends Pansy.”
“Bullshit. I know both of you. You two have something between each other and it just cannot be ignored any longer.”
“So what the bloody hell to you expect me to do about it?”
“Not be her friend any longer.”
Tempest clenched her fists and turned her head towards Draco. Pansy and Draco both looked at her.
“Draco, don't you dare,” she mouthed under her breath. He turned his attention back towards Pansy.
“Fine.” Tempest eyes widened and she turned around so that her back to him and Pansy. She held the tears that were threatening to run down her face and walked from the dormitory. She heard people call for her, but she ignored them as she continued to walked her steady pace.
“I'm sorry Tempest,” she heard Draco say. Tempest didn't care at once she was out of the dormitory, she ran.
The rays of sunlight spread across her eyes as she woke. Aidan nudged her and she smiled. Yes, she could hear the foot steps urging themselves to her.
“Zephyr! Oh my god, have you been out here all night,” she heard Nila say. Tempest in response groaned.
"How long did it take you to find me?”
“Oh, we already knew where you had gone, so did Draco. But knowing you, you probably wanted to be alone.”
“Yes actually, I did.”
“Draco feels awful.”
“I don't give a damn how Malfoy feels. He's pompous, foul, evil, spoiled conceited bastard of a brat.”
“You called him Malfoy. You've never called him Malfoy,” stated Void.
“Well I am now.” Tempest rubbed her eyes and wiped away the dry tears. “Is it time to leave yet?”
“No, we're not leaving until nightfall. Maddox wants to hang out with you though. Oh and before I forget, Maddox punched Draco this morning.”
“Good, he deserved it; him and his little Panzy Wanzy.”
Nila laughed which in turn caused Tempest to smiled. Finally, she got up and went to find her cousin. She knew he would be in the same place she loved.
“Heard you punched Malfoy,” she say standing next to him on the Astronomy tower. “Good work.”
He laughed. “It was the least I would do for you Zephyr. Hey, why is it that whenever I see you and Malfoy there is always tension between you two?”
Tempest shrugged. “O don't know. It's like as we get older, our feelings for each other change and get in the way, I hate it. Sometimes I wish we could go back to being children again.”
“Yeah, things were simpler back then weren't they.”
“Hows you little sister Maddox?”
“All right. I can't wait till the holidays, soon the whole family will be together.”
“That includes the Malfoys. Joy more conflicting fun.” They both laughed and spent the rest of the day together until nightfall came.
Tempest, Nila and Void waited for Jason, Isolde, Adrian, Charlie, Annie, Irene and Timothy. Tempest had already decided that she was going to fly Aidan back home by herself while everyone else was going back to Romania. Good, she thought, maybe some alone time would be good.
Tempest lay on the back of Aidan as her flew over the ocean when suddenly Aidan thoughts intruded.
“Mistress, you really care about Malfoy don't you?”
“You already know the answer.”
“What is it about him that makes him so appealing to you?”
“Wish I Knew. I'm going back to sleep now.”
Once fast asleep Tempest dreamt that she was once again running down a narrow passage. Draco was at the end and she stopped and felt a wave of relief wash over until suddenly Draco was spun around and stabbed. Tempest screamed and began to run.
Tempest jerked up and was covered in cold sweat.
“It's all right, don't worry, it was nothing more than a bad dream.” She laid back and stared into the sky. She hated the boding feeling approaching her.
