DISCLAIMER!
I do not own anything you recognize! This world was not created by me, I'm just living in it.

The next few days passed by with few drama scenes. The occasional dinner with Albus and a few visits from him during work. He had been better than ever, not even looking at females anymore. It was odd. Even the tabloids had noticed something was up.

Soon the day of Rose's birthday party came about. I went over to Rose's house to get dressed.

I had only gone clubbing once before. I felt it was trashy to dress sluttily and grind on men you didn't know. But this time I was going to observe Albus' behavior. It was simply for..experimental purposes...

And you're secretly wishing you'll grind up on him, my mind intervened.

I ignored it, focusing on getting ready.

Rose looked hot. She was wearing a deep navy strapless dress that was tight and had sequins all over. Her deep red hair was curled and let loose to hang around her shoulders. Her makeup, silvery and alluring, made her blue eyes pierce into my soul.

"Damn Rosie. You're definitely getting some tonight!" I said, taking her hand and twirling her around.

She then dragged me to introduce the whole clan. All the Weasley kids were here getting ready.

First was Victorie. Though she had produced a son and two daughters she looked beautiful. She didn't look a day older twenty, with her strawberry blonde hair and her brown eyes. Her black dress was classy and formal, looking professional but still allowed her to have fun.

"You must be Lucky, the girl of the hour. We're so glad that you came into Al's and our lives." She said sincerely giving me a hug.

James' girlfriend Felicity Halvadare was there too. Dark brunette, she was dressed in bright green. She was stunning.

"I remember when a Potter fell for me," she chuckled, "you can't say no! Hopefully Albus keeps you around, I like you! And from what it seems, he's gonna keep you for a while." She finished, winking. No wonder James loved her. She was funny and beautiful. Typical.

Next was Dominique Weasley. Blonde hair and navy eyes, Dom was the epitome of grace and beauty. Wearing a silver dress she looked stunning. From what I heard from being prepped by Rose, she was Albus' best friend.

She looked at me stonily. "Listen. Albus really likes you. If you hurt him, bad things will happen..." She said seriously. "But I have to thank you. Because of you, I have my best friend back!" She said brightening and giving me a hug.

I felt a pang in my chest. Was I using Albus? I was leading him on, not liking him yet and seeing where the wind would take us? Was it possible that he liked me as much as people said?

I pushed the thought out of my head as I met Molly and Lucy and Roxanne.

Molly and Lucy looked identical. Both with red hair and blue eyes, they were so pretty. They wore different shades of gray dresses and looked stunning. They hugged me and started chatting animatedly about what I did at the hospital.

Roxanne was totally at ease, the definition of cool. She was not wearing a clubbing dress. Instead she was wearing leather shorts, tights, and a gold top with gold boots. She clearly was confident and just radiating. She smiled at me and said,

"Damn. Al has good taste."

I was beginning to like this bunch.

Lily Potter was the only one missing. She apparently was at a photoshoot in Singapore.

I was surprised how well I got along with the clan, how open they were with me. I still felt guilty however over what Dom had said to me.

Rose screeched, "Lucky we only have 30 minutes to get you ready!"

The whole group rushed at me.

After 20 minutes of primping, I resembled nothing less than a hooker. I was forced into a tight black skirt, a red flowy tank top, and a black bandeau bra that was clearly seen through the top. My hair was poker straight and swayed to my mid back. My make up was dark and smoky. I was forced into heels that made my 5"4 figure almost 5"10.

"You look hot." Dom stated plainly.

"Get it!" Roxanne shouted.

Everyone else started wolf whistling or cat calling.

Suddenly the boys came in. Teddy snaked his arm around his wife's waist, planting a kiss on her forehead. They were so in love it was sickening.

Dom's boyfriend, Damin Smith, a chaser on Albus' Quidditch team grabbed her and led her to a corner to make out. Those two, I chuckled.

Roxanne's boyfriend and her Hogwarts sweetheart, Alex Thomas, grabbed her hand and sat her in his lap on the couch.

Molly and Lucy were going stag, always finding a line up of suitors at clubs.

James snuck up behind Felicity and spun her around, planting a kiss on her mouth. They looked like something out of a fairy tale.

The best couple however was Scorpius and Rose. Scorpius did a double take when he saw her, resulting in his jaw dropping and his eyes widening to the size of Galleons. He then took her hand and said, "You look beautiful." And then she kissed him passionately, so passionately I looked away, chuckling.

"Might I say, you look stunning?" A voice in my ear said.

I knew that voice and turned. I was facing Albus. He looked heartbreakingly beautiful, wearing a dark wash jean, a black dress shirt and a red bow tie.

"Hey we match!" I said feebly, the sight of him making me slightly weak.

"Hey you're not a midget!" He exclaimed, taking note of my shoes and approving of my height.

"Shut up," I said, grasping his hand...for stability of course...

"Let's go." He said, tugging me along with the others.

This should be an interesting night.

-----

We reached the club. I was clutching onto Albus' hand. These heels weren't the best choice of footwear and I needed Albus for stability.

After a particularly awful twist of my ankle, I fell into Albus. He promptly caught me but left his hands on my waist.

"You okay?" He asked, his eyes practically smoldering.

Unable to speak, I just nodded. I gulped. Focus, Lucky.

We got to the bar, Hugo, Rose's brother was already directing other friends and taking charge of the party.

"Hey Lucky!" Hugo bounded forward, kissing my cheek.

Albus stiffened and cleared his throat pointedly.

"Whoa Al, I was just greeting her, relax!" Hugo chortled.

I shook my head and finally went to go socialize.

----

After a couple hours the party seemed to be in full swing. Everyone was dancing and grinding and fully intoxicated. I stood off to the side chatting with random people, sipping on a flute of champagne.

I was not a heavy drinker or partier by any means.

Suddenly Rose appeared, clearly intoxicated.

"LUCKY! Can you please marry Albus? He loves you! And I think you love him! Are you having fun? Why aren't you dancing? Come talk to me!" Rose slurred.

I chuckled. She didn't know what she was saying or doing.

"Alright alright! Ill come with you!" I laughed and walked with her back to Scorpius.

"You should keep a better eye on your girlfriend!" I shouted and winked at Scorp.

"I love her! I can't wait to leave here if you know what I mean," Scorp wagged his eyebrows suggestively, planting a sloppy kiss to Rose's lips.

I wrinkled my nose in disgust.

"Listen to what Al's saying! He's been talking about you all night!" Rose screamed at me and pulled me to where Albus was, surrounded by a crowd of girls.

My heart tightened and I braced myself for what was happening.

"...she's got this dark flowy, shiny hair ya know? All I wanna do is touch it! It looks so silky! And her eyes? They're like doe eyes. How anyone could resist them I don't know. And her smile? She makes me go weak. And I barely know her but she's got a ridiculous effect on me! So no ladies, I cannot dance or drink with you tonight! Even though I'm not taken officially, my heart already is! I have to prove to her! I have to be good! She will be mine!" Albus finished, swaying.

Though they looked dejected, The girls all smiled, laughed, and clapped at Albus' valor. My heart swelled. He was really trying.

Rose then vocalized what I was thinking,

"See Lucky? We were right! He does care about you! He's doing this for you!" She finished, clapping her hands excitedly.

I smiled, speechless. Now was my turn to have some fun. With Al.

I walked towards him, and though it sounds cheesy, I tossed my hair and had my hand brush against him. He knew who it was. I walked to the bar and ordered a shot of Patron, feeling his eyes on me.

After I downed the drink, I turned and walked back to the dance floor. I started to sway. Suddenly a pair of hands found my waist,

"You know it's not fair to tease. A man can only have so much restraint..." Albus growled in my ear.

I moaned, the alcohol in my system. I swayed moving my body against his. Feeling him, wanting him.

Soon a few open mouthed kisses were being planted on my neck, my hand fisted in his hair, my back to him.

It wasn't a want anymore, it was a primal need.

Too soon, Rose stumbled into me,

"We're leaving! Wee!" She said, stumbling towards Scorpius, both of them looking disheveled.

"Maybe we should take off too..." Albus whispered in my ear huskily, pulling the lobe through his teeth. I shuddered, knowing what would happen if we went home together.

"My place is closest," I whispered back.

We clasped hands and walked out.

--

Maybe the alcohol wore off while we walked, but suddenly the world started to slow down. The fire had dulled, and though I was fully aware of his burning presence next to me, I wasn't filled with lust anymore.

I was worried what scenario we would encounter when we reached my apartment.

Albus seemed calmer as well, rubbing small circles on the back of my hand.
We reached my apartment and I struggled with my keys. His steady hands unlocked it, pulled me in with him, and then locked the door behind him.

At this point I was a nervous wreck. What was he going to do?

He let go of my hand, pulled me in, and we were chest to chest, leaning his forehead on mine.

"I'm going to sleep on the couch okay?" He said, kissing my forehead, releasing me, unfolding a throw blanket, rearranging some pillows, and plopping himself down. I stood frozen. Within two minutes, he was out.

I retreated to my room. Albus Potter never failed to surprise me every day.

----
I woke up to the sun shining through my window. I stretched. And then scampered out of bed.

What time was it?? Did I have work?? What day was it??

I breathed, the events of the day and night coming back to my mind.

Today was the weekend. No work. Breathe Lucky, breathe.

And then to my horror, I realized I brought home Albus Potter after an evening of, *ahem* seductive dancing.

Oh brother.

I went into my attached bathroom to take a look at my appearance. My hair was a mess. I still had makeup from the night before smudged on my face. Disgusted, I rewashed my face and then brushed my teeth. Pulling a comb through my hair, I brushed it away from my neck. I gasped and dropped the comb, inching closer to the mirror, praying that it wasn't true.

I had two large hickeys.

I remembered the feel of Albus dancing on me. The kisses, er, lovebites, he made on my neck.

What was happening to me?

I made my way into the living room of my apartment. The blanket Albus used was folded and the pillows of the couch were back in place. There was no sign that he had been there at all. If I hadn't known any better and didn't have the clear proof on my neck, I wouldn't have believed he was there. He was gone.

Suddenly, I heard a clatter coming from the kitchen. I pulled out my wand and cautiously walked towards it, silently cursing my decision to live alone. I pushed open the door.

It was Albus. Albus Potter in my kitchen. Albus Potter making breakfast.

"Hey love," Albus greeted me warmly, turning to face me and place a kiss on my cheek, "I didn't want to wake you. Here I made a pot of coffee the way you like, there's some orange juice on the counter, and I cooked up some bacon and prepared some toast. I know you like it with honey," Albus rattled off, handing me a plate.

Albus Potter was cooking me breakfast in my own kitchen.

"I didn't make any eggs. You know how hard it is to make breakfast food fitting your needs, love?" Albus said wiping his hands and pouring himself a glass of orange juice.

"You changed." I accused, noticing his change of clothing from last night through my inability to speak because of this display. He was wearing basketball shorts, a pair of Nike sneakers, and a plain white thin tee shirt. I tried not to focus on how form fitting the tee shirt was and how his abs and other various pectoral muscles could be seen.

"Yeah, I did." He said putting his glass down and surveying me. "I didn't want to wake you so I Apparated to get clothes and prayed you wouldn't wake up to me being gone. I didn't think you'd wake up. You like to sleep in."

I just stared at him, in awe of his actions, stunned by this new Albus.

"Eat your breakfast, love." He said noticing I hadn't touched my food.

I frowned.

"Love, I know you don't like breakfast. But it's the most important meal of the day. My mum always said so. My whole family believes it. Maybe if you'd eat, you wouldn't be this tiny!" He joked at the end.

I smiled at his concern and then started to eat. Albus helped himself out with a piece of toast.

After we cleaned up, Albus started to the door.

"Where are you going?" I asked, taking a concerned tone that didn't mean to come out. Shit, I sound like a clingy girlfriend.

"Don't want me to leave?" Albus said cheekily. Ah there we are. Now there's the cocky Albus I knew.

"I have to go, love. Quidditch players don't get off days. I have a game Tuesday. I need to practice." He explained in a tender voice.

He pulled me into him. My small frame fitting perfectly, circling his muscular arms around me.

I felt safe.

"I'll see you soon." He said, planting a small kiss on my cheek, staring deep into my eyes.

His eyes were a light green today. The color of jade. My stomach started screaming.

"Bye." I said softly.

He walked out. I collapsed on the sofa. Screw cliches. I was weak knees by his intense eyes.

Albus Potter had me good. And I swore to myself I wouldn't let this happen.

He was just going to hurt me.

But I had no control in the matter anymore. I was his.
