DO NOT OWN HARRY POTTER


"Get UP!" I heard someone shout, before I was drenched in freezing water. I shot up out of my bed and fell once again onto the floor.

"What the?" I croaked, glaring at my roommate Ginny. She laughed and handed me a warm towel, shaking her head.

"Classes start in about an hour, breakfast is just opening, but No-one goes for another half hour" She replied. Starring at her nail as though it was the easiest thing into world.

"Then why did you wake me up so fudging early?" I grumbled, walking to my closet and picking out my uniform and quickly changing.

"I don't know, oh wait, I do. It's because you take so long to get out of bed." I playfully glared at her while she laughed and walked back to her bed and laid down.

"I'm going to go eat" I mumbled, walking out of the room and into the common room. No one, I mean no one was there. I laughed quietly to myself and walked toward the great hall. As I walked through the doors, I didn't see anyone, food was set up, but no one was there. I smiled softly and sat down at the table, picking out some eggs and bacon. Yum, bacon *Mmmmm* I rubbed my head as I looked around and still saw no-one.

"It feel like the perfect night to dress up like hipsters, and make fun of our exes, oh oh." I softly sang, and I watched my cup be filled with apple juice. I kept humming as I toke my glass and brought it to my lips. About to pick up my bacon, a voice interrupts me actions.

"Mute huh?" I froze when I recognized the voice. I turned around slowly to see a smirking Draco Malfoy starring back at me with his arms crossed over his chest. I nodded my head as I turned back toward my plate.

"Ariona, I know you're not a mute" He whispered, gently placing his hands onto my shoulders. I remained quiet, not daring myself to look at him.

"Talk for me Ariona, please. Or do I have to make you?" He whispered deeper, lowering himself closer and placing his mouth right next to my ear. I shook my head gently, leaning back slightly against him. I heard him sigh and he let go of my shoulders and sat down beside me. I didn't look up until I felt a hand gently lift my head up to be met with his... kind face? His eyes were looking affectionately at me, while his face was relaxed and his lips pulled into a slight smile.

"You can trust me" He whispered, picking up a strand of surprisingly brown hair and twirling it around his finger. I could feel the familiar feel of tears begin to appear in my eyes. I shook my head quickly, placing my hands over my face. I trusted people in my life before and I ended up paying for it. I felt cool hands wrap themselves around my wrists and pull them gently down off of my face.

"Yes you can! Why do you think I never bullied you? You were different, and truthfully, I was afraid of what you were. Every time you look at me, I don't feel like the meanest kid at his school, I feel, normal" I looked into his eyes and all I saw was truth. He wasn't lying, or at least I am hoping.

"O-Okay" I whispered, realizing that his hands were still holding onto my wrists, slowly moving his hands into mine.

"Y-you, just talked" He smiled, intertwining my fingers with his.

"Shh, You can't tell anyone" I whispered, leaning closer to his face for effect. He smiled, like an actual smile.

"I won't!" He promised, tightening his grip on my hands.

"You look cute when you smiles" I heard myself say before my brain could even register. He smiled brighter and lifted one of his eyebrows.

"Cute huh?" I blushed and looked down at our still intertwined hands.

"Does pink mean you're blushing?" I heard him ask. I shook my head and tried to keep my voice steady.

"Oh course not" He laughed and leaned closer, gently resting his forehead against mine. I sucked in a quick breath through my nose and looked at him with wide eyes.

'I think it does, because your hair is flaming pink right now" I didn't even care about my hair, what I cared about was this guy sitting next to me, with his forehead pressed against mine with him looking deeply into my eyes. His playful expression melted away as he went to a black expression, quickly looking down to my lips before back to my eyes. I gulped loudly and blinked.

"I should probably go. I'm not really into the whole morning breakfast chats." I winked as I quickly stood up and looked down at his blank expression.

"You don't have to leave" He mumbled, crossing his arms over his chest. I giggled and nodded.

"Yeah it does, remember, I'm mute" He smirked and stood, now standing right in front of me.

"It's going to be so hard not hearing you talk now" He joked, his eyes lighting up. I laughed as I nodded.

"Yeah, but this is our secret. Not even Hermoinie knows." He scowled at the name but nodded his head.

"It is. But now you have to do something for me to make me keep your little secret" He smirked, leaning back on his heels. I gave him a questioning look as I cocked my head to the side.

"You have to meet me in the astronomy tower every night so we can talk." He spoke, keeping his expression straight. I blushed lightly but timidly nodded. He smiled and reached out toward me, surprisingly pulling me into his warm chest.

"See you later mute" He winked before walking away, leaving me and my pink hair behind.
