Sorry this took a little longer than anticipated—I was having trouble putting it together!
The Magic of Switzerland: Part Two
"So what do you want to do tonight?" Draco asked, casually slipping her hand into his and bringing it up for a kiss.
"Well-a boat ride would be nice. I could take pictures of the mountains. Oh-oh and I really want to try the chocolate, I hear it's the best chocolate in the world."
Draco chuckled and swiftly leaned forward, gently placing a kiss against her temple. "Your childlike enthusiasm is refreshing. You are the only other person, aside from me, that I know of, who is still enchanted with natures beauty."
"It's just so beautiful here. It's so clean—not like New York, or even England. It's nice for a change."
The only thing Switzerland had in common with New York was the people. There were a lot of them. Tourists and the sort, Lucerne was clean, New York City was nowhere near Switzerland in that area.
Draco hummed deep in his throat, amusement lingering in his eyes, while he fiddled with Ginny's middle finger. "I agree. So a boat ride it is." He smirked at Ginny's squeal of delight. "Wait, look! It's the famous Kapellbrucke. Every time I see it, I'm just amazed!"
"What is it?" Ginny asked glancing at the bridge with a ceiling built over it.
"Kapellbrucke, or some people call it the chapel bridge. It's from the fourteenth century. You see that ceiling built over it?"
Ginny nodded staring at the wooden bridge with wonder. It was old. That much was obvious, but it was beautiful, and very long, for a walking bridge.
'It must go on forever,' Ginny thought to herself.
"Well, at the top of it there are one hundred and twenty murals, telling the history of Lucerne, with versus in German."
"Really? How many times have you been here?" Ginny asked glancing up at him.
Draco smiled softly, almost dreamily, as he peaked up at the sky. "Many, many times."
Ginny moaned happily as she stretched herself awake. She had never slept this good in her whole life. Not even at The Westin. The beds had fluffy feather throws draped on the bed, which was magnificent, adding to the comfort of an already, sinfully relaxing bed. The sun glinted on the white covers, dressing Ginny's face with a warm sunny glow as she turned to look towards Draco in his bed.
He was still sleeping. They had had a wonderful late night, a night that had been magical and so much more. Ginny grinned impishly as she jumped up from her bed, shivering as she pulled herself from the warmth of her bed. She tiptoed towards Draco's bed, lifted the covers and slowly crept in. Snuggling deeper into the covers, she turned Draco to his side so that his chest was against her back, and then lifted his arm and draped it over her waist.
She fell back asleep within minutes.
"On our way to the hotel did you notice the license plates here?" Draco asked, as he stroked Ginny's hand.
They were in a boat, on a river that Ginny wasn't exactly sure of the name. Draco had packed a picnic basket that had had Shrimp Alfredo, a magnificent piece of Swiss Chocolate Cake, and a bottle of white wine. Ginny had never tasted anything so amazing. Every bite was like lightening, electrifying her senses. What had surprised her the most, was that when they had both finished eating, Draco had turned her around so that she was between his legs, her back resting against his chest. He had folded her arms across her stomach, and rested his hands against hers.
Ginny nodded. "They had CH on them. It's different from the others."
"It means Confoederatio Helvetica. Helvetica was a Celtic tribe that had been living here for over two thousand years," Draco said before pointing in front of him. "So, what do you think of Switzerland so far?"
"That it really is the most picturesque place."
"That it is."
"Thank you for taking me with you," Ginny said turning her head and looking up at him.
He stared down at her and smiled tenderly. "You're welcome. Thanks' for coming," he whispered softly before cradling the side of her face and pulling her into a kiss.
The kiss had lasted for only a few moments, but Ginny felt it straight to her toes. "Mm, that was nice."
Draco traced her bottom lip. "It was and I'm going to kiss you again."
Ginny laughed. "I was hoping."
Ginny stretched her body and stiffened when she felt another body next to her, but quickly remembered she'd snuck into Draco's bed earlier this morning.
"Morning kitten," Draco whispered softly.
She turned to see Draco's eyes wide open, as if he'd been awake for a while, awake, and watching her. She couldn't help but notice how incredibly dark and intense his eyes were.
"Were you watching me sleep?" She asked scooting closer to him while still on her side.
"Mm," he confirmed. "I like waking up to you next to me. You've been doing it quite a bit lately, ever since I gave you my flat key. If you aren't careful I might just get used to it."
Ginny grinned. "That's okay with me."
Draco lifted a hand up and ran it through her hair, staring intensely down at her. "Ginny, I'm falling in love with you."
Ginny felt her eyes widen and she gasped. "I-"
"I'm not telling you so that you have to say it back to me. I'm telling you because I just want you to know."
"Okay," Ginny smiled softly. "Draco?"
"I'm falling in love with you, I just wanted you to know," she grinned, biting her lip.
I expected more from this last bit, I wanted more on Switzerland-I couldn't remember very much, and what I researched didn't add up with what memory I did have-I just couldn't match it together but after I put everything together this is what was produced. I'm still pleased with it. Considering it's a sequel to the first real PG-13 story I've done of Harry Potter. Thanks for reading! Aya
