Chapter 1 - The Reason I Love You


 

Draco stared around the hall, wishing he had more time to say goodbye. Voldemort had decreed that he was to be killed at 7:00pm in the Great Hall to set an example of his family. He had given his owl a letter to send in the minutes before 7:00pm

He heard the familiar screech of his owl as it dropped the letter into the lap of the unsuspecting Gryffindor she opened it and began to read:

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do


He glanced at the clock, time was running out.

But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you


He sought out a familiar pair of honey colored eyes, they were fixed on the blonde-haired boy with a look of pure shock on her face as she glanced back down to the letter.
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know


His silver eyes swirled with passion and sadness as he realized that she was never going to forgive him.

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be


The Headmaster peered at the Slytherin boy with immense curiosity, seeing the look he was giving to the shocked Gryffindor girl.
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you
Draco’s voice choked as he remember all the names he had called the woman he now knew as the Gryffindor Lioness.
I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday


She stared at him, seeing the passion, sadness and regret swirling there, her eyes too, began to unmask her feelings, knowing that he was almost crying out for her forgiveness.
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away


He was speaking the truth; she knew it, his beseeching eyes calling for her, begging her to come to him, to love him as she once did.

And be the one who catches all your tears
Thats why I need you to hear
She blinked away tears and looked at the table, realizing that her choice had been the wrong one.
I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be


Draco’s eyes misted as her gaze pulled away from his, she would never forgive him. But it was worth it, to show her how much he cared before he had to go.
a reason to start over new
and the reason is You


She lifted her head and caught his gaze again, still calling for her. It was unbearable, she should have never ended it, never let them talk her out of it.

and the reason is You
She slowly shut her eyes, hoping no one was looking at her, witnessing her tears.

and the reason is You

She admired the curled handwriting of Draco Malfoy, spinning words of pain and love along the piece of paper she was reading.

and the reason is You

She looked straight at him once more. This time he knew for sure. She is the one, he loved her with every breath in his body, every ounce of being in his soul.
I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you


His time was running out. So quickly, not enough time to say what he had to say. All he wanted was to feel those lips upon his before he was gone.
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know


A tear rolled down her face, leaving a small streak of wetness down her cheek.

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be


She rose from her chair at the back of the hall and began walking towards the platnum-blonde Syltherin man.
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you
Eyes turned towards the serene girl, slowly making her way towards the enemy’s table.
I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know


She began making her way up closer to him. Her eyes mirroring the emotions in Draco’s eyes: Love, tenderness, regret.
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you


He let the fork he was holding drop from his pale hand. He could feel the life draining out of him. The girl rushed towards him as he fell, tears dripping from her face to his.

‘I’m sorry……I loved you……I’m sorry……I love you still……my Hermione……’ the last of his breath whistled out of his slightly parted lips as the Dark Mark on his arm finally began to fade.

He was free.
