Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 The Insufferably Rude Girl

Draco sits alone on the Hogwarts Express, brooding over the task he has been set this year. His thoughts are interrupted by an argument with and near-hexing by the fellow child of a Death Eater. Finding her to be incredibly haughty and insulting, Draco is at once intrigued.

2 How Do You Solve A Problem Like Mariya?

“I mean it, Malfoy,” she said, leaning close and examining him, “you’re paler than usual, and you’ve got bags under your eyes. Have you not been sleeping?” When he looked at her, she looked a bit smug, as if she knew (but how could she?) why he hadn’t been sleeping.

4 I Can Handle It Myself

He was ready to agree, he wanted to agree, when a small, greedy voice inside of him shouted, ”NO! I want the glory! I want the credit!” and this broke the spell he had been under. He jerked his head back and replaced the hopeful look on his face with his customary sneer.

“I don’t need any help. I can handle it, don’t you worry.”

5 The Art Of Extortion

“Blaise,” he began, sounding regretful, “if you don’t do this for me, I’m afraid action will have to be taken.”

“Like what?” the attractive boy scoffed.

Draco smirked. Now, now was his time to shine. Oh, he could steal and lie and bully, sure, but these qualities came as naturally as- and were about as exciting as-breathing. But extortion…oh, there was a practice Draco could really sink his teeth into. He could almost taste his impending victory.

6 What Are You Doing Here?

“What the bloody hell is this, Borgin?”

“The instructions, sir.”

“‘The instructions, sir,’” Draco mimicked savagely, “I know that. How the hell am I supposed to do all this?!

“I’m sure I don’t know, sir,” Borgin said, a nasty smile spreading on his lips, “but certainly someone with your connections will have no shortage of help.”

7 That's Twice I've Caught You Crying

Draco studied Mariya carefully. She didn’t appear to be deceiving him. The thought of having to ask a student-a student in his year…a girl student in his year-for help was positively revolting. However, if she was right about Snape…

8 Instant Darkness

The next day, Draco found it incredibly hard to concentrate in class. He didn’t even know the name of the potion Mariya was going to cook up, let alone what it would do. He looked down at the list she had provided him and sighed...He knew he’d be able to procure all of these items from the Potion Master’s private stores, but had no idea how to do it.

9 How To De-Wing A Lacewing Fly

Draco reached out, grimacing. Mariya gave a derisive snort, picked up a fly, and placed it in his palm.

“Alright? Now, take the tweezers and separate the wings…no, not like that…here, let me see…”

She leaned over and plucked the fly and tweezers from Draco’s hands.

“Watch, Draco. It’s like this…”

She sat next to him, her right leg pressing against his left leg, and showed him patiently how to de-wing the flies.
