Sum: The war ended. Draco was fine, he really was, he was all alone but when had that been a problem? God didn't seem to agree, is this why he sent him this weird angel? A very strange one he couldn't seem to get rid off…DM/LL fluffy
AN: It popped up into my disturbed little head. It's a Draco Malfoy and Luna Lovegood romance. Keep reading! Luna will come in soon.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything related to Harry Potter. I just own the fluffiness you don't recognize.
24 hours earlier…
Draco looked up from his coffee table where he sat writing a letter to Dumbledore. Draco looked the girl who was standing in front of him. To get into the coffee shop he was in you had to have class and style in order for the guards to let you in in the first place.
It was a good place to get women with class, not that he was trying to or wanted to do so, he really wasn't in the mood and to be honest. Not one woman had turned him on since the battle begun nor now that it ended.
This one that had just addressed him was a pretty tan girl around his age, possibly a little older with shoulder length black hair and perky sexy looking lips decorated with dark purple lipstick. She had on a red dress that was short to her thigh and matching red high heels.
The only thing that told him she wasn't just some slut was the diamond necklace and matching bracelets she had on her that sparkled in the light. A hot…and possibly evil woman and probably a muggle since he couldn't see any purse or any place to hide a wand.
Draco nodded at her politely.
"The name's Monique." The girl purred and reached out a hand for him to take and possibly kiss.
"Would you like me to be your…coffee friend?"
Draco didn't reach for her hand and she soon dropped it sheepishly. He quirk an eyebrow and hide his smirk as he finished signing off his letter and carefully rolled it up and pocket it before narrowing his eyes at her, the way he knew would make girls swoon and replied coolly.
And that was how he got a date at 8.00pm.
"Good afternoon Draco Malfoy"
Draco glanced up from the book he was reading and reached up to gently slid his sunglasses down his nose to find a girl with long blonde hair down her back, pale features with almost no color to her cheeks and pale baby blue eyes standing in front of him looking down to where he sat.
She was watching him as if he was an interesting mammal she was studying.
Draco looked away from her and observed the park he was reading in. It was a sunny day out and people were enjoying the weekends with their families, their object of affection or their pets.
He, Draco Malfoy just wanted to get out of the mansion he was forced to stay in with a few dozen house elf that all belonged to him with nothing to do.
His father was dead from the final battle and his mother had some how sacrificed herself for some light side moron he didn't know and he was the last of the Malfoy that had survived.
Potter was still around, of course. He was married to Granger the know it all mud blood and his loyal side kick had died in battle, an honorable thing actually since he died in action protecting his younger sister, Ginny Weasley. Who survived, she ended up in a deep coma but it counted that she survived since she was still able to breathe.
It had been a year since all that and Draco had inherited all of the Malfoys' fortune and the Blacks' as well since he was as they say 'connected by blood'. But he gave it off to Potter (who fought at first but finally gave in at the end); after all he didn't want any more of what people called 'money'.
What good was it now that people didn't have anything to fear anymore nowadays with the dark lord gone, dead and all.
That was why on a sunny afternoon Draco Malfoy, fed up with the spooky silence of the mansion threw on a white t-shirt and black pants, grabbed a book he hadn't had the time to finish and decided to pick a spot in the park nearby to catch up on some reading.
He didn't expect somebody who knew him would be here or if they did wouldn't come up to him and addressed him by his full name.
Draco sighed as he saw there was nobody else around where he was sitting under the shade of a huge oak tree on the nice and quiet part of the park, there was only the girl there and it must've been her who had addressed him so weirdly, formal but weird.
The girl had on a slightly big white t-shirt and a white pair of fluttering pants with white flip flops and a bright green cap that totally stood out from her outfit. She was about his age, maybe a bit younger but there was something in her eyes that told him she wasn't as naïve as she looked.
It didn't look like she was going anywhere and it didn't seem like she was in a hurry since she just stood there and kept on looking at him like he was the most interesting thing in the world.
Draco sighed and closed his book remembering the page he was on and look up to make eye contact with the strange girl. He looked her up and down once more before raising his eyebrows and said in a short curt voice, more like a polite snap.
"Do I know you?" Draco frown softly as a necklace made out of bottle caps dangling around her pale neck caught his eyes, something was oddly familiar about it.
"No. Not really." Was her equally short reply.
Draco stared at her with a quirk eyebrow. Slowly he placed the book down on the grass beside him and gave her an impressive look.
"And you know my name because…?" The girl stared at him with freaky large eyes before answering in a soft voice.
"I know your name because I can remember everyone in the Order."
Her eyes dropped slightly and Draco felt his eyes soften a bit, of course, they were probably complete strangers but she had probably lost someone in the battle and being in a muggle world nowadays was probably hard and she probably wanted a fellow magic friend to talk to.
"Look lady-" She seems to perk up at the word 'lady'
"-I don't want to be rude but I really don't want to listen to your problems right now-" She raised her eyebrows.
"However, I am very sorry for whatever or who ever you have lost and wish you the best of luck for the rest of your life that has yet to come."
With that said he picked up his book, found his page and pushed his sunglasses back on to continue on with his reading. Draco knew she wasn't going to leave right away since most people would be shock at his words for a minute before they found him useless to talk to and then leave him for good but he wasn't expecting the girl to walk over to his left and gently sat down right beside him.
She didn't say anything. She just sat down as gently and as gracefully as a cat.
Draco paused in his reading and glanced at her his temper starting to boil. He was about to snap something about the word private and the law when she pointed to his book and asked in a dreamy yet interested voice.
"What are you reading?"
Draco blinked slightly caught off guard then he shook his head and let out a small growl.
"The secrets of heaven...what do you care anyway? As I remember I did not ask you to sit down with me nor did I intend to engage in a conversation with you."
"It looks interesting, why did you choose to read it?"
Draco stared at her then he scowled in annoyance. He didn't know what or who this chick was and she was already getting on his nerves!
"Shove it missy, I'm trying to read." Draco sneered and turned giving her the view of his backside and tried to get back to his reading. A few minutes of silence passed and Draco jerked up slightly.
"Didn't anybody ever tell you that it's rude to read over somebody's shoulder?"
"Didn't anybody ever tell you that it's rude to shove off someone who wants to talk to you with out at least trying to talk to them first?"
Draco twisted around to face her in pure rage at being lecture to find his face very close to her, except the fact that her chin was at the level of his nose since she was looking over his shoulders minutes before. It looked as thought she wasn't a least bit shaken on the fact of how close they were.
"Would you mind?" Draco growled wanting her to move over after sitting there like that for a full minute of silence.
The girl didn't say anything; she didn't even node she just moved back a bit and sat down facing him her legs crossed together Indian style. Draco took the moment to observe her. She seems young and looks as though a hurricane couldn't ruffle her features.
"Are you going to go?" Draco found himself asking finding this whole encounter completely freaky.
She remained silent for a sec before shaking her head her bright green cap reflecting the sun light and flashing it into his eyes. Draco scowled and blinked then something occurred to him.
"Do you have a place to stay?"
She stared at him as if he had just said something amusing.
"Yes." (AN: Ha! Thought that they'll get together that quick huh? Wrong!)
"Good! Then, I. Am. Leaving." Draco informed her and quickly got up, grabbed his book and began trotting towards the path out of the park when her voice stopped him.
Draco rolled his eyes. Jesus, if she was going to ask for my number I'll kill her. Draco turned around to her once again and watched as she slowly got up. She was quite graceful he admitted but kind of air headed looking but then again kind of solid in a way he couldn't exactly explain.
"What do you want?"
She had on the same expression she had on when he first saw her. It wasn't impressive but it didn't show anything else either. She seems expression free but with a sense of warmth just radiating off of her.
Must be those heart to heart kind of women. Draco thought and watched as she strolled over to him closing the gap between them.
Draco stared in amusement as she reached into her back pocket and pulled out something red, round and shinny. She reached out to him with whatever was in her hand.
"What?" Draco snapped getting slightly annoyed, again.
"Would you like an apple?"
Well that caught him of guard, again. What was it with this chick? Draco glanced down from her emotionless face to her hand. She opened her palm and indeed it was an apple that lied in her hand.
Draco blinked in surprise and partly bewilderment. Apples were his favorites! He hadn't had the time to eat any since…well, a year or something. There were times he wanted to but something was always in his way.
Draco hesitant unsure if he should accept it from her. The girl stared at him and he stared at her hand with a confused expression. It must've been a pretty weird scene if people were to look at them.
A girl and a boy standing in the middle of the park, an apple in between. Just standing there...and doing practically nothing.
"No. You keep it." Draco finally muttered feeling like he had to go and slap some cold water over himself.
The girl blinked then swiftly reached into her other pocket and what emerged was…another apple. What was she? Apple girl? Draco watched as she held both apples in front of her.
"I have one. Now you take one." Draco stared at her and scowled. Who did she think she was? And he actually wanted one but his ego wouldn't let him.
"Why the heck should I? It's just an APPLE!" Draco growled making the people passing by turn at the word apple. Draco shot them all a glare and they all hurried along their way.
"It's an apple, Draco Malfoy."
"So?" Draco gritted his teeth in annoyance, it was his given name. Why the hell was he annoyed with it? Was it because of the way she said it? It was different to when the other people say his name; but then again he didn't like changes very much.
"You should eat a lot more fruit than you do now. It's not healthy. You should be healthy."
Draco stared at her a little bewildered. He hadn't expected that. He thought she just wanted him to take it…but she had actually said something well, that sounded a little bit concerned…for him. Snap out of it!
Draco narrowed his eyes at her.
"I am very healthy, thanks a bunch. Just so you know girls swoon at my feet. If I wasn't looking good now why would they do that I ask you?"
"Those 'girls' you speak off are only interested in your practically handsome outward appearance and your wealth that they can eat out of for a life time. They do not care for you or if you stay alive."
For the first time (or so he thought) since they had met she had said something with a bit of feeling in it this time. Draco frown slightly since he wasn't sure if she was complimenting him for his good looks or telling him that he was nothing more than the dirt they walked on.
Well, probably a bit of both.
"That was not meant to be an insult."
Draco jerked out of his thoughts and raised his eyebrows in surprise. Why was it that he felt like she could read his thoughts?
Draco noticed that the girls' eyes never left his face since they had stood there. Draco stared at her pale white face then glance down at the apple in her hand, again.
"If I take it, are you going to leave me alone?"
"Are you going to take it if I answer?"
"Will you answer?"
"What makes you think I might not?"
"Maybe it's because you always answer back with a bloody question?"
"I'll leave you alone once you've taken the apple, if that is what you wish."
Draco opened his mouth to argue then stopped as he realized that she had just said she'll leave him alone. Draco set an impressive face.
Oh he was a stubborn jackass with every inch of his being and he had always been like that. Nothing had changed, even if he did turn good in the war but that didn't mean he was a totally different person. And this girl was no exception.
He was going to let this girl know she wasn't missing anything out by staying away from him. It might even do her some good, it look as though she needed to get a life anyway.
"I'll take it." Draco yanked the apple from her hand and turned to his side facing the lake that was quite far from where they were standing.
"Are you going to throw it away Draco Malfoy?"
Draco didn't answer right away. How did she know? He didn't care, remember. Draco thought to himself. You're a stubborn jackass.
Draco took a full swing and threw the apple into the air aiming for the lake that seems impossible to reach. The red shinny skin of the spinning apple reflected the sun light and it winked back at him as the two of them stood watching as it flew through the air and…hit a jogging guy on the head and knocked him unconscious.
I'm probably saving her from me. Draco thought then felt guilty for the guy.
"Oops…?" Draco muttered seeing the guy out cold. "Oh well. He'll come round."
Draco turned back to the girl who was still standing there just looking at him.
"Don't go out tonight. Stay in for the night. It is not safe."
Draco stared at her. How weird could she get? Hello! She was talking to Draco Malfoy. Former death eater! Draco straightened himself and adjusted his collar.
"Thanks, but no thanks. Besides, I have a date tonight."
"A date?" Draco stared at her as if she was mad. Did this mean she did not know what a date was?
"Yes, a date. It's an event where a man and a woman get together to get to know each other better and do something they both like but of course with a few other things on their minds as well." Draco explained sarcastically.
The girl just nodded and brought her hand out for him to shake good bye. Not wanting to be that cruel, he took it gently and shook it lightly.
"I would say it was nice meeting you but I'll rather not since we both know it's not true-"
Draco thought that one over and glanced at the girl again. She wasn't bad looking but she certainly was not his type. He preferred girls that could handle him…not someone who looked like a china glass doll. But it wasn't a complete lost, it was actually quite entertaining. Better than having no one else to talk to.
"It was ok."
He let go of her hand and slide his hands into his pocket letting her know that he was leaving. He was surprise to see her bring up her hand and waved him good bye.
That easy? Draco thought and gave her a node.
"Bye then." Draco muttered and turned to walk away.
He probably wouldn't see her ever again. He wasn't sure if he was happy or…very happy. Whatever, he had a hot date to get ready to go to. Maybe he'll go rent a movie to kill some time before eight. He wasn't a girl, he didn't need hours preparing.
Draco stopped and turned around to take one last look at the strange girl before he would never see her again but when he turned; she wasn't there anymore.
"Hmm…weird." Draco muttered to himself and continued walking and carefully taking out his wand getting ready to vanish back to his mansion.
"And she didn't even say good bye."
To be continued…
AN: How was it? Please review for me. It turned out kind of mystery type. Oh for those who didn't know who 'the girl' was. It was Luna Lovegood people!
