I was walking through a castle corridor and to me it looked as if the castle had been blown apart. There were floors ripped apart and walls crumbling down. As I looked down the corridor the floors seemed to be obscured by something as I got further down the hall I could see that they were bodies. I saw Lucius Malfoy and Severus Snape, Peter Pettigrew, Lestrange, Goyle, Crabbe. Then I came to this Grand Hall, Where I saw the bodies of several others, including my father and Bellatrix Lestrange. I saw a girl standing over a body and realized that girl was me so I stayed back to watch. I looked no older than maybe 17 at most. Soon a familiar blonde haired boy came into view. He placed an arm around my shoulder and whispered, "It's over now. He's gone." I showed no remorse as I watched my father's body being taken away.
"Your father is dead." I whispered back.
"I know, but you aren't. That's the most important thing." He said kissing my hair.
"I probably have some apologizing to do." I said walking away. I assumed I was dealing with the loss of everything like I had so many other things, by bottling things up and shutting people out.
I woke with a start. That vision had frightened me more than any others. I slipped out of bed and went to my door. I opened it but it creaked. I froze and when I heard nothing I began walking. Soon another door opened. "Jayna?" asked Draco.
"Yes." I replied.
"What are you doing up its 2:30 in the morning?"
"Bad dream, I was going to go to the library."
"You want to talk about it?" he asked. It couldn't hurt could it?
"Sure let's go to the library." I said.
"So what was this dream about?" he asked once we were in the library with the doors closed.
"Well first I should explain that in some of my dreams I see the future and this was one of the dreams." I then proceeded to tell him about my dream.
"So if this war happens, our fathers will die as will the cause?" he asked.
"Yes, but remember the future is subjective and it can change at any given moment and I won't know until I go to sleep. So that could easily change." He nodded.
"Have you had any other dreams regarding any of us?"
"No." I said avoiding telling him about the dream about us ending up together. He nodded and we sat in silence. Finally he broke the silence.
"Jayna I was just wondering do you think that you would want to…maybe go out with me." He asked.
"Of course I would Draco." I said. Okay so when I first got there I hated him, but he isn't as bad as he seemed and he kind of grows on you. He's sweet and caring and hot. Yeah I'm superficial, sue me.
"That's great how does Friday sound to you?" he asked.
"That sounds wonderful." He smiled. I mean he genuinely smiled at me. He walked me back to my room and after that I was finally able to sleep.
Over the next couple days I could think of nothing but my date with Draco on Friday. It was Wednesday when I had nothing to do so I decided to think up something new.
That morning I woke up and dressed in jeans and my favorite t-shirt. I ran down stairs to breakfast because I had an idea as to what I would do that day.
"Jayna, my dear, how are you this morning? Have you any plans today?" my father asked.
"I was going to go into town today for a while. Then I'll probably come back here and crochet a new scarf or something."
"That sounds good."
A meek house elf came over and asked me what I wanted for breakfast after that. I asked for a bowl of vanilla yogurt with red berries and granola and a glass of water. My food was there in minutes and after I ate I ran back to my room to grab a jacket. I said my goodbyes and jogged into town. After a while I came across the place I was looking for. A tattoo parlor.
"Hello, anyone here?" I questioned, walking into the building.
"Have a seat and I'll be with ya in a minute." a voice called from the back. I took a seat and waited maybe 10 minutes before a young man came out. "How may I help ya?" he asked.
"Hi, I was wondering if I could get these two tattoos." I said pulling out the sketches I had drawn up.
"Yeah I can do those. I'll copy down the sketches and if you come back in an hour, I can tattoo you." he said after he gave them a once over. I nodded and walked out so I could do some shopping. After an hour I came back and approved the sketches after that he prepped me for the tattooing. I got a musical note with a bunch of colors and designs on my side and I got a tattoo of Johnny's name and his life span over my heart. "How do they look?" asked the tattoo artist.
"I love them so much. Thank you!" I said paying for the tattoos.
"No problem if you ever need anything else just come on back." he said as I opened the door to leave. I did a little more shopping and then went back to the Manor. When I got back I had enough time to change my clothes and get to lunch. I threw on a blouse and some dress pants and ran down to the dining room.
"Good afternoon Jayna, dear. How was your morning?" my father asked me.
"It was good. I went shopping, got some tattoos, and did some walking…" I said.
"Did some walking…"
"I got two tattoos."
"Of what?" Asked my father. I pulled up my shirt a little and showed him the musical note and told him about the other one. "It looks wonderful dear… I still don't know what possessed you to get tattoos, but all in the same they look presentable and can be covered by clothing, so I'm okay with it."
At that point is when Draco came in. No one told him of my tattoos so he was none the wiser. The next day I lay around all day and crocheted some new things and read some classic novels. It was seriously a dreary day because of rain. Normally I loved the rain but today it was just depressing. I fell asleep early that night. I really don't know why but I think it's because I couldn't wait for the next day to come.
The next day I did anything and everything to pass the time. I even cleaned my room. I know shocking isn't it? When four o'clock finally rolled about I began to get ready. I washed, plucked, straightened, combed, brushed, and primped for as long as deemed possible. At seven I walked down stairs and met Draco at the door, our parents standing there. "You look stunning." Draco said smiling down at me. What can I say? I'm short. We made to leave and as we walked out the door I heard my dad say something about a wonderful match. Whatever. Draco took me to a very nice Italian restaurant and then took me by surprise. He blindfolded me.
"You do realize I'm not accustomed to being blindfolded on first dates, don't you?" I asked him.
"Just relax and trust me." he whispered into my ear. I'd have to say I'm lying if I didn't find it the slightest bit attractive. Soon I was placed on something wooden, which I assumed to be a broom, and we were flying. After about an hour we landed and he picked me up and set me down on my bottom. I was shocked when he pulled off my blindfold and I was at the beach near my home in Paris.
"How did you know about this place?" I asked turning to him.
"You had your sketchbook open one day when you weren't looking and I saw a picture of this place so I tracked it down and decided to bring you. I thought it might cheer you up and make staying with us seem less gloomy." he said looking down at the last part of the sentence.
"I love this. It's wonderful, thank you so much Draco. For the record though, I don't think living with your family is gloomy. Sure I didn't like it at first but now I'm friends with you, at least I consider us friends."
"Is that all you think we could be is friends?" he asked in barely a whisper.
"I think that we could be something more, if we both wanted it."
"Do you want to be more than friends?"
"Yes, I do, I like you Draco. I think you're smart and funny and nice and I really like you." I said.
"I want us to be more than friends because I like you too. I think you're resourceful, smart, funny, beautiful, and I really like you too." he said. I blushed and tucked a piece of hair behind my ear. He leaned towards me and we kissed. It was like nothing I had ever experienced. It was sweet and warm and wonderful. We broke apart and I leaned against his chest and watched the waves crash against the shore. Nothing could have been more perfect. That was the moment I knew I was wrong. I would end up with Draco Malfoy and there was nothing I could do about it.
