     You're doing fine...

    
No I'm not, they're never going to forgive me...

     Try harder, you can do it...belive in yourself...

     
How? no one believes in me...

     I do, I always have...

    
Who are you...?



     Draco Malfoy stood on the balcony outside his room at Malfoy Manor. He had been up for hours. He stared blankly at the ground below, wondering what it was that kept him up. It was dawn, the sun was rising to the left of where he was. A beutiful view...but Draco was still puzzled about last night. 

     How could he have known?
     Why is he helping me after all this time?


     FLASHBACK

    Draco...Draco...
    Ehh...let me sleep...

     Draco...
     Don't you listen asshole? I said I want to sleep...

     Get up now, I don't have much time...
     Draco angrily threw the covers off his bed. Punching his pillow, he screamed,
" I can't get any sleep in this fucking house!" It was then he heard a familiar voice at the edge of his bed.

     I know what you mean, son...
     Father...?

    Draco turned and saw his father, Lucius, at the foot of his massive bed. Something was wrong though...Lucius was supposedly in Azkaban, yet he was there and in transparent form. 

     "What are you doing here father? If the Ministry finds out you've escaped, it will be all our necks."

      "I had to come son, It's the last thing I do before I go."
      "Go where?"

     "I can't tell you...not yet."
      "Explain why you are here then."

     "Don't play into this Voldemort bullshit Draco, I found out too late and in the hardest way possible. My arrogance cost me the things I care about most. Don't let that happen to you. Seek out Potter and his friends, I know they can help you. After all...Potter did beat the Dark Lord several times, nobody that has ever lived has done that. It's too late for me to get my redemption, but it isn't too late for you."

     "What do you mean father?"

     " I have accepted my fate as a Deatheater and muggle killer...but you can make a difference Draco, the first Malfoy to turn good."
     "You say it like it's going to be easy."

     It's anything but that my son. It's going to be hard...but the outcome will be worth the struggle."
     "I don't know if I can do it."

     " I have faith in you son, I believe you can. Look inside yourself and find the strength. Don't forget...a Malfoy never gives up."
      Draco let out a small chuckle. He was right in that aspect.

     "You should remember this Draco...evil often wins...but it seldom conquers. I wish that I could go back and change what I have done. I've spent countless nights laying there and reliving the terrible things I have done to the people that were different than me. Ruining families was fun for me back then...now it's all nothing but a continuous nightmare, one that I'll have to endure for eternity."
     "If you regret it now father...doesn't that mean you've changed too?

     "It's too late for me, son. Go to them, prove your resolve and be what no Malfoy has ever dreamed of being...good. I say this as my last request. Farewell my son. I had trouble expressing it when I was alive...but I never once stopped loving you, or your mother."
      "Wait, don't go!"

     "I have to son, my time in this workd has ended...but yours is just getting started. With that said...Lay back down you'll need to get up in a little while."
     "I thought I was awake already. Are you telling me this is all a dream?"

      "It may or may not be. To tell you the truth...you are dreaming."
      And with that, Lucius Malfoy fades away, but not before giving Draco a wink and a wave goodbye.

        THAT MORNING

      Draco finally realized what kept him up. He had a job to do, and as his father told him, "A Malfoy never gives up." He doesn't plan to anytime soon.
