Chasing the Train
Chapter 11

Draco pulled Ginny into a deep kiss, not caring that everyone on the platform was watching him as he cupped her face in his hands and kissed her as if the world were ending. The world faded away, their hearts beat furiously, their pulse throbbed furiously between their legs, and when they pulled back their breaths were labored. He knew Mr. Weasley was standing just paces away, he knew a few of her brothers were just as close, he knew her father was probably closer, all looking away as to not focus to intently on their daughter enjoying a passionate kiss with the man.

"I love you," he whispered before pulling her into another kiss. He felt her body go weak in his arms and held her upright, not wanting the kiss to end.

Their lips parted again and he pulled her into a hug, his arms wrapping her tightly and their breath even more ragged. "I love you," Ginny said as she fought to regain her breath.

He pulled her back and looked down into her eyes, his hands once again cupping her face, "Promise to write," he said with a smile, "listen to Lily as she's quidditch captain, and make sure to pick on all the little kiddies as your Head Girl."

"I have to write you and be Head Girl and plan this insufferable wedding?" she whined playfully. She smiled up at him. "Then you must write everyday, I want to know how auror training is going."

He kissed her on the nose, "Of course," he said with a large smile, "don't run off with another bloke," he laughed.

Ginny laughed, "I like this bloke," she lowered her voice to a whisper, "best looking bloke as well."

"Yes, well, did you ever doubt that?" he said with a cheeky smile. "Now, you must get going, I think the trains about to leave without you."

"No, not without me," she said with her own cheeky smile. She looked around Draco's shoulder, glad she'd already given her family hugs, saving the best for last. "You watch him," she yelled to Ron, "if he comes within one step of any type of hair product, I give you permission to tackle him to the ground."

Ron laughed, "I suppose he might be coming within quite of hair products, then."

Ginny stuck her tongue out at him and looked back up at Draco. He kissed her quickly and lovingly on the lips once more before letting her go. "Love you," he said as she walked away.

"Love you as well," she said as she took hold of a handle and pulled herself up to the first step. The train whistled and started very slowly to pull away.

Draco started to run with the train, Ginny laughing hysterically at him, "We're off to get Muggle tattoos, can you believe?" he yelled at her.

"What of?" she yelled back.

"Gryffindor across our backs, Harry says," he yelled to her before stopping at the end of the platform and watching her until he couldn't see her any longer.

Draco,

Miss you bunches! Love you as well… I suppose. The train ride went well, did you really get a Muggle tattoo? Lily says Harry will never go through with it, she called him a dandy, but I'm sure she was joking. I wonder what Susan will think.

I want to see it then, if you did go through with it. The first Hogsmeade weekend is the first Saturday of October, keep that day free!

All the girls were talking about us on the train, I knew we should've said good bye at home! It's so embarrassing, they're all saying what a great bloke you are and how handsome you look, I keep saying they don't know you! No, I just agree, really I do.
Write back soon, I think I may go crazy in this place…

Love, Ginny

Ginny,

Miss you bunches as well! And love you… for sure! Yes we did! Harry went first, then Ron, and then they made me go. I said I shouldn't really get it as I was never in Gryffindor. They said I was an honorary member of the house (really wish they'd have thought that before the battle).

I promise to show you and to be in Hogsmeade waiting for you. I'll keep everyday free for you, love.

I'm not amazed that the girls were talking, I've always been a good bloke! And handsome as well.

I lost the plot when you left…

Love, Draco

Ginny walked with Lily down the path to Hogsmeade, the sun still warm. She shuddered slightly as she walked over the place she'd held Draco. She could still remember the painful hours spent holding him. He didn't even know, no one had told him, that was her job, but she'd been unable to tell him just yet.

She saw his white blonde hair shining in the distance and started running towards him. She ran into him, his arms quickly wrapping around her. He picked her up off her feet and swung her around.

"Who would think," he said with a smirk as he set her down, "that we would be able to be here like this?" He gazed down into her eyes, his face practically glowing at the sight of her, "I never imagined that I'd be able to have you, especially with everyone watching. I feel as if I'm doing something I shouldn't."

Ginny laughed, "Just shut up and kiss me already," she said before pushing herself onto her toes and kissing him.

She pulled back and grabbed his hand, her heart still pounding from the kiss and started to pull him along, "Come on," she yelled back to him. She pulled him along the street, past the large fountain. They left the town and came to the small grassy area at the bottom of the hill that held the Shrieking Shack. She pulled him over, and stopped, standing next to a boulder that rose up past her waist. "Let's see then," she said with a smirk.

One of Draco's eyebrows raised as he smirked mischievously, "See what exactly?" he asked cocking his head to one side.

She gave him a playful shove, "The Muggle tattoo," she laughed.

"Alright," he said sighing as if it were a hassle. He turned, slipped his blue-gray cloak that matched the darkest color of his eyes over his head, and laid it gently on the boulder, revealing a plain white shirt and a pair of jeans. He pulled his shirt off, revealing the tone body Ginny had never laid eyes on. His jeans were a little loose and hanging low in his hips. He was once again wearing no underwear and the little patch of white blonde hair shone through just above the top of his pants.

He took hold of his pants and pulled them up but they only fell back into place, a little crooked on his hips. His cheeks tinged a pink, feeling rather embarrassed that they were so low on his waist. He pulled Ginny into a quick kiss, leaving her breathless as he pulled away.

He turned around and crouched down a little so she could see the letters that ran across his shoulder blades.

She outlined each letter with her finger, she laughed, "It's rather," she paused trying to think of the right word, "Muggle."

"Is that good or bad?" he asked, his back still turned to her.

"I," she paused again, still trying to determine what her feelings were about it, "like it a lot." She smiled and traced the letters again, "It fits you, and it looks…" she trailed off, not wanting to say the only word that came to her mind.

"It looks?" Draco asked, wanting to know what she was thinking.

"Like you better put your shirt on before I force you into eloping," she laughed.

Draco turned around quickly and pulled her into a hug, kissing her playfully all over her cheeks and forehead and occasionally his lips would fall upon hers as she laughed hysterically. "Stop, stop, stop," she said though her laughter, "you have to tell me about Susan and Ron's Christmas wedding, and Hermione and Rory's Halloween wedding, and the details of auror training."

"Alright," Draco said before releasing her. He pulled his t-shirt on and spread his robe out before lifting her onto the boulder and pushing himself up to sit beside her. He wrapped his arm around her and pulling her into him, her head resting softly on his chest.

Ginny,

Miss you bunches and love you more!

I can't wait till the next Hogsmeade visit. Hermione's wedding was like torture, you being home for only a little while before having to go back to school. We barely got to spend anytime together! Really, she should've planned better to suit us.

Ron tried to transfigure Harry in auror training and gave Harry complete tiger fur and tail, then Harry did the same to Ron, giving him leopard spots and a tail, AND as I was laughing at them, doubling over actually, they hit me with a lion. So now I have a mane and fur and a tail and Hermione wont tell us how to get them to go away, nor will the instructors. Don't tell Lily, she'd give out to Harry.

Your Gryffindor Lion, Draco

Draco,

Get Hermione to take pictures!

Miss you and love you!

I can't wait either! It's the last weekend of November, keep it free!

And you're right, Hermione should've planned her wedding around us. You realize you're starting to sound like Harry and Ron, don't you? You haven't been stuffing your mouth with food at every sitting and saying thick things, have you?

I won't tell Lily, but I will show her the pictures.

Your Lioness, Ginny

"Draco, why do you insist on dragging me all over creation? Just give me my gift, Ron is going to kill us if we're late for the wedding as we're both in it," Ginny whined as Draco pulled her to the fireplace. He yelled something and pulled her into the fire with him, wrapping her in his arms tightly as they spun.

They landed with a thud and Draco bent his knees with the impact so he wouldn't fall. He pulled Ginny out of the fire place and into a rather ornate room. The floor was all wood, a dark wood. The walls were a medium dark brown with white molding around the ceiling and floor, but it was empty, completely empty.

"Where are we?" Ginny asked her voice echoing as she looked around, examining from a distance the large windows along the wall. She turned to look at the detailed fireplace. She turned and looked back at the room, it was large, but not overly large, a comfortable size.

"Home," Draco said as he slipped his arm around her waist, "our home."

Ginny looked up at him, "Our home?" she asked not understanding what he meant.

"Our home, our living room, our fireplace, our home," he said with a smile.

Draco,

I miss you now more than ever! And I love you so much it hurts!

This new term is worst than the last, I miss you more than ever, but I already said that. I can't stop thinking about the house that was evil of you, you do know that. I only got a chance to see it once, once! That was just mean. I didn't realize it until I got back and had to sit here thinking about it. It was mean, Draco Malfoy, M E A N.

Also, Colin Creevey has taken these pictures for you, they're of me of course, playing quidditch and other things. He meant to give them to me for Christmas but he couldn't find me so he just waited. I hope you enjoy them! He said he liked the ones of you, Harry, and Ron as various large felines. Luna said you looked rather fit as a lion.

Love always, Ginny

Ginny,

I miss you as well! It always hurts when you're not around, and I love you as well!

I thought we'd have more time at the house, I didn't realize we'd be so busy, I'm sorry.

I love the pictures, tell Colin I extend my deepest gratitude as Merlin knows you can't take the time to send me pictures of you. Also, tell Luna, well what should you tell Luna? Tell her I said thanks, and YOU said I looked rather funny. Tell her I agree as well, how could I not look fit as anything?

Did you decide anything more on the wedding? Harry, Ron, and I have picked out our muggle, what are they again? I like them though, but I'd like to know why I can't wear robes. I like robes better. I know Ron and Rory didn't wear robes, and neither is Harry, but why? I'm not questioning your choice, you understand, as I don't want to be on the receiving end of your temper (ever), but just wondering.

Your wizard who's becoming mugglized, Draco

Ginny,

I've gone mad missing you and I've lost all semblance of sanity loving you.

I can't wait for you to come home. I'm glad you've got all the wedding plans done and I'm glad I got to help, it was almost fun (don't tell Harry and Ron, they'll never let me live that down). I hope you do well on your N.E.W.T.s, I'm amazed I got through them last year.

It's hard to believe so much time has passed and how many letter's we've sent to each other! I've got them all in a box in my trunk (don't tell Harry and Ron that either). I'm glad the years almost over, if it wasn't I might need a bigger box!

I feel so Gryffindorish I must say. I think you've turned me into a hopeless romantic, Ginny Weasley. I've become a blundering idiot because of you, I'm not my usual sharp self. Not sure whether that's good or bad.

Write back soon then get studying!

Love, Draco

Draco,

You've always been mad and insane, so don't blame it on me. I miss and love you as well!

I agree with you on everything until you start talking about feeling Gryffindorish. You're not a blundering idiot really, but you are mushy. Joking, of course. You're a Gryffindor at heart Draco, but you're still sharp. And must I remind you that you acted rather unblndering and unidiotish (yes, I do realize those aren't words) over Easter? You, my love, are still yourself, I promise.

I thought you wanted to be the warm Gryffindor instead of the cold Slytherin. You don't act like a fool I promise you. You've just found out what joy is, you have real friends, and you've found love.

I love you and want you to know that I'll leave my window open if you'd like to talk. I understand if your feeling a little torn between your old world and your new one, it's a big change.

I hope you're not feeling as if you've made the wrong choice.

I'm off to study, I promise.

Your princess, Ginny

Ginny,

I've not always been mad and insane so I do blame it on you! Love you like Weasley's love food (which I've found is much more than I imagined… Ron put away something like eight bowls of stew last night).

I'm not feeling as if I've made the wrong choice! And Ginny, love, know that it wasn't a choice, I never had to choose between you and anything. You have always been in my heart! You'll always be in my heart!

I just felt a little unlike myself is all. I never joked around with Crabbe and Goyle and I don't want to go into my relations with other girls. This is new to me and though I want to leave my old life behind I still want to be somewhat like myself. I don't want to be a blundering idiot, but I want to be hopelessly and devotedly in love with you, and I will be for all time.

Your Gryffindor Prince, Draco
