A/N: yupp. Now the cliffie will be resolved.
When I opened my eyes, I saw white. My body felt lighter then usual, in fact it was almost as if I only had half a body. My legs felt miles away, I looked down, ignoring the ache in my neck, and saw only pale shapeless blurs.
I was either blind or in heaven.
My next thought was to scream, I opened my mouth, and all that came out was a horse, wordless whisper. I started to panic, I couldn't really move, couldn't see, couldn't scream. Where was Draco?
Suddenly something pricked my arm and the panic inside me started to recede. My mind turned into a blur of darkness and the shining white world started to fade. The last thing I heard was a soft voice saying,
"I know you…"
He found me?
The second time I opened my eyes I still saw white, but this time I could see a window, and a pale blue sky. I smiled and cuddled deeply into the crappy mattress I was sleeping on. My eyes never left that sky. It was so pretty. I wanted to be outside, free again, starring up at it.
But where was Draco?
I sat up and looked around the room.
I was in a hospital bed. Raking a hand through my hair I tried to remember. How did I get in a hospital bed? I'd left the factory, through that tunnel. And then something hit me, there were bright lights.
My first reaction was to jerk the IV out of my arm and run. Then the door opened and I tensed, ready to leap out of bed before they could bring up my non existent insurance coverage.
Then my heart skipped a beat.
Icy blond hair, bangs tumbling around a smooth pale face. Two cold blue eyes, the same shade as a pale winters sky scattered with dancing snow flakes. A white lab coat, scrubs, holding a medical chart in one hand. He'd looked better in fur coats and velvet tuxedos but it was unmistakable. Draco. He did find me.
"You're awake," Was all he said as his surprised eyes met mine. I knew him, I loved him. But this Draco Malfoy, excuse me, Dr. Draco Malfoy had no idea who the hell I was.
"…Yeah." Was all I said. My heart was plummeting into my stomach, I could almost see every childish dream I had shattering into a million glittering shards.
"You've been out for a few weeks," He said, closing the door behind him. "Do you remember what happened?"
I shook my head. But I watched him closely, I studied his eyes. They flashed, the sparkled, they danced just as I remembered. But they didn't sing to me anymore. As he moved closer to my bed I saw confusion, fear, warmth, nostalgia, and affection flash through those icy orbs and I wanted to grin. I was willing to bet both my kidneys that doctors never ever felt like that when they saw a patient.
Maybe Draco did remember me, just a little bit.
"I hit you with my car," The doctor sighed as he sat by the bed. "You just darted in front of the car and I couldn't stop."
"No worries, I'm doing good, right?" I asked with a wry grin. I had him back, I had my angel back.
He looked a bit taken aback by the grin. "Your recovering very quickly actually. There shouldn't be any long term damage, it's a miracle you didn't break anything. Your arm is sprained, but that should heal in a few days."
"Great, so when am I outta here?"
"Well I'd like to keep you for another day or so, just for observation, you had quite a concussion, so…"
I wanted to jump around like a 5 year old on his birthday, but I restrained myself. "I don't have any insurance, so you might just want to get rid of me-"
"No! I mean its fine. I can cover your bills." Dr. Malfoy said, cheeks coloring just a tad. "I'd feel much more comfortable if I could keep an eye on you."
"That's very generous of you, Doctor?" I waited for him to supply a name I very well know.
"Malfoy, Draco Malfoy."
"Well…thank you Draco," I said softly, offering him a smile.
He just stared at me for a second before finally asking, "Have I met you before? I feel like I know you from somewhere."
I shrugged, my eyes never leaving his. "I meet a lotta people."
"Where do you live?"
"Oh, here and there, I like to move around a lot."
Draco looked curiously at me, as if he'd never seen anything like me before. It was a look I'd seen grace his features before. "So where are you going when I release you."
I grinned impishly at him before shrugging, "Here and there."
His complacent look took on a twitch of annoyance, "You're homeless."
"I prefer to say residentially challenged."
Draco rolled his eyes, "anything I can do to convince you to stay around the hospital for a while? I'd rather not run you over again."
"You could take me home."
And then he regarded me with shocked blue eyes and for a moment I thought he'd chuckle and shoot me up with some morphine. Instead he regarded me with a suspicious smirk, "Why would I want a mutt like you?"
I leaned just a tad closer to him and took his hand in mine. I felt his hand stiffen in mine as I laced my fingers through his. I laughed softly, I was still wearing that emerald ring Draco gave me so long ago at the chocolate factory. And Dr. Draco Malfoy was wearing the perfect match to my ring. The two rings one set with an emerald, and one set with sapphire fit perfectly together to form a jewel heart.
He looked at our hands in complete awe.
"Because you love me," I said very quietly, resting my forehead on his.
"This isn't supposed to happen," He whispered.
"What? You don't believe in love at first sight?" I teased.
I kissed him right then. And I knew this was the Draco Malfoy who I loved. I pulled away, looking shyly up at him, waiting for a response.
"Yes." Draco murmured. "…Harry…."
"What are you laughing at, you nut job?" He asked teasingly, brushing his nose against mine.
"That two freaks like us got a happy ending."
A/N: I'm sorry, but I just had to give them a happy ending. They're so cute!
So thanks to alllll my reviewers, ppsstttt, if I get 6 more then this story will have 200 which is a record for me. So please review and tell me what you thought of the story. I'm pretty pleased with it, I know the last few chapters weren't to consistent with the beginning because I kinda started the story having no idea where it was going.
Sadly enough I may start a new story, but firstly I'll probably continue chimeras call, so if you're reading that too, then jump for joy I'm actually updating.
Reviewers, I love you all, you've been amazing.
