You Are My Only One
Chapter Two: Harry and WHO?
The next day was the last day of summer. Hermione, Ron, and Ginny were meeting Harry in Diagon Alley to pick up the rest of their school supplies. All of them were ready pretty early, so they used the flew powder and decided to look around before they met Harry.
Ginny wanted to go into the pet shop. "What I wouldn't give for a cat like you, Hermione! I wish we had more money," she sighed softly. Right after saying that, she spotted a little kitten. It was white with little splotches of black and orange. She bent down and opened the cage. The cat mewed softly, so Ginny picked it up and began to stroke it fondly.
"I'll be back in a minute, Gin," Hermione said. Ginny nodded and continued to pet the cat. Hermione went over to the cashier. "Sir, I would like to by that cat for my friend," she said quietly.
The man nodded. "That will be five galleons since she is the last of the litter and we needed to bring in more soon anyway."
Hermione nodded and gave the man the money. When she was done, she walked back over to Ginny. "What are you going to name her?"
"Hermione, why should I name her. She isn't mine!" Ginny frowned at her friend.
"She's yours now, your birthday is coming up. Just think of it as an early present!" Hermione smiled at Ginny.
Ginny's eyes widened and she gave Hermione a huge hug. "You shouldn't have, but thank you so much! I'm going to name her Gingersnap!" Ginny cuddled the little kitten closer and began to talk quickly to the shopkeeper about food and treats for her new pet. Her face was glowing from excitement.
Ron walked over. "That was the last of your money Hermione. You really shouldn't have done that!"
"Ron, I can always borrow extra quills and ink from you and Harry, and now Ginny has a new friend. It's alright," Hermione said.
When they were finished in the pet shop, the three friends went to go meet Harry. The bookshop was full of people. Ron noticed a white-blonde head. It was a girl with long hair pulled back in a messy bun. When she turned around to look through the window, Ron noticed her piercing blue eyes and strong resemblance to Malfoy. He brushed it off and they went into the bookshop. Harry came running up to them excitedly.
"Guys, I have someone you have to meet!" Harry said, grinning.
The girl with the blonde hair walked up to them. "I'm Lyra, nice to meet you." Her eyes flicked over Ron and Ginny. An emotion that was undistinguishable crossed her face and faded quickly.
Ron nodded. "Im Ron and this is Ginny and Hermione."
The girl shrugged. "I know. Harry's told me all about you. But let me introduce myself a bit more. I'm in fourth year at Hogwarts, but I'm just starting there. I used to go to Durmstrang, but we moved. I'm also cousin to a certain Draco Malfoy."
Ron's mouth dropped. "A Malfoy! Harry! Come on!"
"Ron, you don't even know Lyra. She is nothing like Draco Malfoy. In fact, she is quite the contrary. I've been getting to know her a while," Harry said calmly.
"Give me a chance to prove I'm different. My cousin is nothing like me and I pride myself on being different. I have always hated him and was pretty distressed when I heard I would be going to school with him. But then it was ok when I met Harry. Harry's very nice and I'm glad he didn't judge me by Draco," Lyra said in her melodic voice.
"Well, you seem very nice to me," Hermione said. "I don't see any trace of your cousin beside looks. And speaking of your cousin, here he comes."
As Hermione had said, none other than Draco Malfoy had walked into the bookshop. His eyes narrowed at the site of Harry, but widened when he saw Lyra. He dashed over to them. "LYRA? What the hell are you doing here, and with Potter, the Weaselbees, and this mudblood!" he asked angrily.
At this, Lyra slapped him across the face. "You will not speak of my friends that way. You know very damn well that my mother is a muggle. I can't believe you are so horrible to these people. I know your father is a death eater, but Harry is an amazing person not worthy of your stupid mind. Goodbye Draco."
