The Source - Chapter One
Stupid Potter! The nerve of him, threatening me, a Malfoy, just you wait; I'll get you back. How dare he make me promise to… Draco was shook out of his thoughts by Lisa Hutchins, a Sixth year Ravenclaw latching onto his arm.
"Draco! Did you miss me? I know I missed you." She leaned over and gave Draco a kiss on the cheek before hugging his arm even tighter.
"Lisa, how many times have I told you not to kiss me in public? Also I did NOT miss you. Now, kindly remove your grip from my arm," Draco said coldly.He glared down at Lisa and gave her his famous, stony glare. Lisa removed her arm away from his and gave him a pleading look.
"But, Draco, last week you said…and I was so happy…I thought you loved me, and we.…"
"Hutchins. Are you really as dense as you look? I never said anything; you were the one who jumped to conclusions. Now please leave, the sight of you makes me sick," Draco drawled out. The sixth year Ravenclaw burst out into tears and ran out of the main hall, another heart broken by Draco Malfoy.
Meanwhile on the other side of the room sat Harry Potter, with his friends Hermione Granger, Ronald Weasley and his kid sisterGinny Weasley. "Come on, Harry," whined Ron. "Why is Malfoy still here? I know you know."
"For Goodness sakes, Ron," Hermione said, "leave Harry in peace. I'm sure he's had enough of your badgering, you've been going on like this for two whole weeks now."
"If Harry would tell me then I would stop the badgering," Ron retorted.
"Well why can't you not badger now?" Hermione said sounding very annoyed.
"I find it quite surprising you don't want to know too Hermione; considering how you want to know everything all the time."
"I do not want to know everything all the time!" Hermione said defensively.
"Sure you don't," Ron said sarcastically before rolling his eyes.
"Hey guys!" Harry's voice cut through Ron and Hermione's argumentso they stopped yelling immediately. Harry turned to face Ron and placed his arm around his best friends shoulder. "Sorry, Ron, but I took a wizards oath that I could not reveal what happened or else I'll go bald before I'm 20, go blind at 30, go deaf at 40, my legs will fall off at 50 and I'll have slugs coming out of my mouth when I die at 60." Ron cringed at the last 'or else'.
"Oh Damn. That has got to be the worse oath I've ever heard of. That's alright Harry, you don't have to tell me and I'll stop pestering you."
"Finally," Hermione breathed a big sigh of relief. "I don't have to hear your voice all the time."
"Hey, there happens to be a lot of people lining up, just he hear my lovely, charming and hypnotizing voice," Ron boasted sarcastically. The trio burst out laughing but stopped when they noticed the commotion coming from the Slytherin table. Their eye's then followed the girl who ran out of the hall in tears.
"What the bloody hell happened over there?" exclaimed Ron.
"I'll go see if she's alright." Yhe trio turned their heads and looked at Ginny. They had forgotten that she was sitting there and if she had not spoken they wouldn't have notice either. Ginny got up and left the hall in search of the heart broken Ravenclaw.
Draco began eating his Breakfast after Lisa Hutchins had left. Not caring where the girl went or how she felt. On his left sat Crabbe and Goyle and to his right sat Blaise Zabini. She was looking at a slightly pink colored parchment and snickering.
"What's so funny Zabini?" Draco enquired while not even looking at her.
"Well, Malfoy, it seems that I have found a cure for our boredom. How does taking off house points sound?"
"Keep talking," answered Draco in his usual careless tone. He was Head Boy this year so he had the right to take house points off other students, and he'd been waiting to find a chance to use that privilege.
"I've come across some information that a couple of sixth year Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws have a weekly gambling game in one of the classrooms after curfew. This would be a great chance to show some of your power, eh, Malfoy?" she said while smiling.
"Not a bad idea Zabini, but where did you get this information? How do I know it's reliable? I have better things to do than wander around looking for non existent get-togethers."
Blaise lifted the pink parchment and waved it about. "Oh it's definitely reliable. It has yet to fail me."
Draco grabbed the parchment from Blaise's hand and looked at it questionably:Level Two, classroom 213
After midnight, after curfew gambling.
Ravenclaw's: Jane booty, Kit Lengly and Jason Heroning.
Hufflepuff's: Bobby Smith, Silvia Oldfield and Megan Hadger.
"What is this Zabini? And whom is it clarified by?" Draco asked.
Snatching back the parchment, Blaise turned her nose up at Draco. "This is where I got the information, and that," she pointed to the weird 'S' at the bottom of the page, "is a symbol. It stands for The Source."
"The Source? What is that?" Draco asked.
"More like who is that." Draco gave Blaise a what-are-you-talking-about look before she answered, "All I know is that it's someone who trades information for money. Anything you want to know about anyone at Hogwarts he can tell you. You just have to pay the right price."
Draco smirked. A plan was forming quickly in his head. Payback time Potter.
"So Blaise. Where can I meet this Source guy?"
Blaise raised her eyebrow at the use of her first name. "Why Draco? Planning to dig up some dirt off someone?" she said in a very seductive voice.
"You could put it that way," Draco said while smirking. Blaise and Draco eyed each other knowingly before Blaise leaned over and whispered into his hear.
