Just Like That?
Potter walked toward the window in the middle of the night. Waiting... he
wasn't sure what he was waiting for. He was just waiting. He was curious if he
would be Head Boy this year...probably not.
Some male version of Hermione would do the job much better.
He looked out of the window suddenly realised what he was waiting for... a letter, of course. Just to know his friends hadn't forgotten about him. 'They are probably busy doing really fun stuff...' Harry thought sadly, lying again on his bed. He felt so alone... Hedwig was gone... he couldn't talk to his friends... it just sucked here!!
The next morning he awoke feeling truly miserable. But the feeling disappeared when he saw an owl bearing a letter sitting upon his desk.
He gave the owl some food and water before it flew away. Then he opened the letter.
Dear Mr Potter,
Congratulations on your selection as Head Boy.
Together with Mr Malfoy you will arrive one day early at Hogwarts to receive instructions on your tasks in the upcoming year.
I hope this won't be a problem. We think it is better this way.
The list of textbooks and other supplies you will require this year is attached.
"WHAT??" Harry cried aloud, "I'M HEAD BOY!!!!! But with Malfoy? Does this mean I have to share something with him? No, probably not." 'I have to write a letter to Ron and Hermione about this!! I'll do that immediately! I cant believe it! I'm Head Boy! I'll have a room of my own! That could come in handy!' laugh
started writing the letters.
It was two weeks after he'd received the letter and he found himself sitting in the train. It was quite different this time. There were no other students on the train—only professors.
"Potter", he heard a familiar voice say.
"Malfoy", he greeted the blond Slytherin who was standing in the doorway. "So.. they made you Head Boy too?" Harry asked, trying to start a conversation.
"Well, if you could read you would have known that!" Draco sneered.
"FORGIVE me for trying to have a normal conversation with you! Oh wait. How could I forget! You're not normal!" Harry practically yelled.
"Is that all? That's all you have to say to me? You're getting weak, Potter" he sneered, all the while walking toward Harry and sitting opposite him.
"Who told you you could sit there?" Harry asked angrily
"I did," Draco said. After that he stared through the window as if to say the discussion was over. Harry sighed and stared through the window as well. [Fuck! This is NOT funny! I have to be Head Boy with MALFOY! Look at him! You can't even have a normal conversation with him! He is so pathetic!!] Then Harry closed his eyes and slowly fell deeply asleep.
Draco yelled into his ear.
"What the ....?" Harry said angrily. "What was that for?"
"We'll be there in a couple of seconds" Draco said, amused by the look on Harry's face.
"I would have noticed that, Malfoy!" Harry yelled.
"Just wanted you to know," he said before leaving.
'I CAN'T STAND THAT GUY!' Harry thought while walking out carriage entrance. He saw that the carriages were already waiting and got into one of them. He wanted to get right back out after seeing that Draco was in the carriage too.
"And What are You doing here?" Draco asked, raising one eyebrow.
"I thought it would be fun sitting in the same carriage! We could pay a game or something," Harry answered sarcastically 'I'm having a really REALLY BAD day,' he thought staring out of the window again. Luckily the ride didn't take long and he got out of that carriage as soon as he could.
He saw Dumbledore was already waiting for them in front of the Hogwarts entrance.
"Mr. Potter, Mr. Malfoy," the professor greeted them shaking both of their hands. "If you would follow me I'll show you your new rooms. You both know you wont be sleeping in your tower. You will have a little tower, just for the two of you,"
'OH NO!!! I Think I'm Going To Die!' Harry thought, trying to remain calm. They walked towards a large portrait.
"The password is Dragon heart" Dumbledore said while the portrait opened. They walked inside.
'ohmigod! What a space!' Harry thought. The common room was twice as big as the Gryffindor one. And there were two doors on the opposite of each other.
"Harry, this will be you room," Dumbledore said, opening one door "And this will be yours, Draco. I must inform you that you two will have to share the bathroom. There is a door connected to it in both your rooms. We had some problems before. When the head students weren't from the same sex. So we decided to change that. I'm sure it wont be a problem now," he continued with a twinkle in his eyes while two faces stared at him. "Your belongings has been moved here already. Have a nice day I'll see you with dinner." and he left.
Harry opened his bedroom door and looked inside. There was a big four-poster bed in the middle of the room. A desk on one side of the room was near the fireplace. On the other side there was a door. He opened it, noticing it opened from the other side as well.
"We need to make some rules about this," Draco muttered looking in Harry's eyes.
"We sure do, Malfoy." Harry muttered back. He closed the door again and went to the common room.
Later, sitting on the couch, he heard the common door open.
"Potter?" Draco asked
"Could you please put on the fire? It's freezing" Draco asked
"Sure" Harry said surprised. 'did I just hear Malfoy say please? No must have imagined that.'
"That's better!" Draco said, sitting down beside him. "Now how late do you normally wake up? I know--stupid question--the answer is TOO LATE!" Draco sneered.
"Eight o'clock." Harry answered angrily.
"Good, you may shower at eight! Than I'll have an hour," Draco said looking into the fire.
"An hour?" Harry asked
"Well, I don't want to look like you!" Draco sneered
'Maybe I should try getting along with him,' Harry though staring to Draco 'is he really that evil? I cant possible imagine! I'll find out about the rumours. If he really sleeps with every girl you can imagine. Maybe I could bring some girls over some time to. Just to let him know I'm not that Good and innocent after all...'
