Alright, I decided that since I got so many reviews, I should try for another chapter. It's not great, but hopefyully, it'll do. Sorry that it took so long, but I had a killer writers block.
Another thing, I wanted to get this up asap, so it's not beta-ed. I'll ask my beta to review with her opinion anyway, like she always does. So here's her shout-out.
This should have been beta-ed my oOJade-DragonOo. Sorry I'm so impatient girl!!!!
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be.
Warning- not so oblvious Harry, heavy fluff, and...oh yeah!!! SLASH!!!!
I'm running out of things to say, so enjoy and don't forget to review. I do know where this story is headed people. And Chelsea, remind me to email you with the story outline. As my beta, you deserve to know!!!!
Also, Has anyone read my new fic Through anothers Eyes? It will also be a Draco/Harry fic. Give it a chance.
Tulips- Chapter Two
By: Nyoka Li.
You know me. You have to. Everyone knows me. But just in case you've been living under a rock for the last couple decades, let me fill you in.
No need to jump around like a Creevey screaming "You're the boy-who-lived!!!"
I'm perfectly aware for who I am. And I wish I wasn't. It makes today so much harder for me.
Valentine's Day. When I was young, it was just another day of the year. Just another excuse for people to act all lovey-dovey in public.
But not anymore. Now, I have to face the facts. While everybody loves me, no one really wants to be with me. I'm too dangerous to love. Most people wouldn't risk it. Most people have enough smarts to stay away. Except for him.
Even though he's an idiot who clearly doesn't know what's good for him, I'll admit that I'm mildly attracted to Draco Malfoy. Yes, I know about his little crush, I'm not as naïve as people think. I learned at a very young age that people will be more open and will say a lot more if they think you're too stupid or oblivious to understand. He thinks I'm oblivious too. But I'm not. I see the way he looks at me, like I'm something he wants to devour. I can tell he wants me. Desires me with such an unfathomable intensity that I couldn't even begin to comprehend.
But I'm not willing, or ready to allow him to have me quite yet.
"Harry?" Ron's voice cuts through my thoughts, stopping me from considering Draco even further. "It's time for breakfast."
"Coming..."I mumble. Might as well get something to eat. Maybe food will take my mind off what day it is.
Breakfast was the usual affair, but with heaps more nauseating romance. People sitting with each other, holding hands, kissing, and exchanging gifts.
While it makes me sick, it also stirs a strange kind of longing in me. Maybe I should give Malfoy a chance....
When I woke up this morning, my bed was completely flooded with cards, chocolates, roses and lingerie from the random woman. But nothing from him. I couldn't help the swell of disappointment that started then. You'd think if he wanted me so bad, he'd at least make an effort. Even a flower or a card would have been appreciated. Hell, I'm so desperate; a package of Bertie Botts every flavor beans would be welcome. Anything to know that someone is thinking about me today. Ph well, there's always my birthday. In six months.
Suddenly, a school owl soars down towards me, a bouquet of flowers and a note with it. Rolling my eyes at another attempt at my attentions, I scoff it off, returning to my heart shaped pancakes mutilating them beyond recognition. Hermione however, squeals loudly and tears the message right off the flowers, leaving Ron sitting there, his arms wrapped around thin air, a confused look on his face. They're tulips, I notice, a decent change in pace.
Hermione starts making those cutesy little cooing sounds that drive me up the wall.
"Harry...." She whispers softly, so I almost can't hear her. "I think you should read this."
I scoff again. That's going to happen. I practically snarl my answer. "Not a chance Hermione. There is no way I am opening another letter form someone who says they love me when they don't even know me. It's not going to happen." And it's true. I will not be taken advantage of.
"Give people a chance Harry; I think this one's a keeper." She argues. I know there's really no fighting her, she'll win anyways.
"Fine." I snap, a little too roughly, tearing the letter from her hands. I feel my glare practically burning through the paper, but I can't help but soften as I read further and further down the paper.
I happen to know that there's more to you than meets the eye. You are so much more. But I've seen past the scar many times, and I know the real you much better then anyone else ever could. My purpose is to love you, Harry. I am in awe of you, of your beauty, of everything you are and everything you every will be. You will never understand that when you look at me, even when your eyes are filled with hatred, I melt. I love you and hope that some day, you might feel the same. Goodbye my darling, and have faith through the day knowing that someone loves you more then you could possibly imagine.
You secret Love.
I gasp. This is intense. I must say Draco, I was losing faith in you. I can feel him staring at me, waiting for my response to the paper. I slowly raise my head until my eyes reach his. Playing up the oblivious side of me, I give him a questioning look, which is returned with a smile.
After I finish my breakfast, I gather up my books and head for potions class.
Alright Malfoy, I'll give you a chance.....Just don't blow it.
Very short, I know. it's just over 850 words. That's very painful, I know. And after you all waited so nicely...except for those of you who threatened me. Dowsn't matter, I love you all. And here's proof. Everytime you review, you get a personal shoutout!!! Isn't that great?
What do you want to happen next chapter?
1) Draco and Harry give each other a chance.
2) Harry attempts to ignore Draco and also pretends to think someone else gave him the flowers to get Draco jealous.
3) Something all my own. It'll take Harry and Draco longer to get togethert, but will probably get you a better story.
