Fire and Ice


As expected Ginny's month of slavery ended the week after her magical night with Draco, and it was so sudden she was slightly shocked to believe any of it had happened at all. Freedom coursed through her, as she walked from his room that final night, and through it all she was disappointed. She didn't want it to be over, she had fallen for him, and now that she belonged to no one, she found herself at a loss. For some reason, she felt that if she wasn't required to visit him, he would never speak to her again, which severely affected her. The thought of a future without Draco certainly looked grim but, she would have to accept it.

As she walked through a long dark corridor, her thoughts continued to whirl, as they had been the past couple of days. Suddenly a hand shot out from behind a marble statue, yanking her behind it, and smothering her mouth. Her gaze flickered downwards, and widened almost instantly at the site of a pale hand, coiled over her lips. A small smile played across her lips but, she immediately scolded herself for doing so, and stopped any emotion from showing. Slowly Draco's hand fell, and he stood back, gazing at her intently.

"Draco … wha-what are you doing here?" she asked, genuinely puzzled.

"I've been thinking," he stated, fully ignoring her question. "Could you possibly consider waiting on me hand and foot for say, a couple more weeks?"

Ginny's face blew out into a full out grin, despite her strict thoughts. "Of course I can!" her mouth desperately wanted to utter.

But, instead she said simply. "Sure, I suppose that would be fine."

Draco breathed a sigh of relief, and Ginny spotted a certain glisten to his crystal like eyes. "Thank merlin." He said.

Ginny frowned slightly, her brows furrowing together tightly.

"Well, master," she said enthusiastically. "What is my first order of business?"

A slow smirk slipped onto his lips, as he took a step closer, closing the gap between the couple.

"Hmmm, that's a tough one. But," he paused for emphasis. "I suppose a kiss would suit me for now." He stated, trying to sound nonchalant but failing miserably.

Ginny raised a brow, a smirk of her own curling upon her lips. "I think that can be arranged." She whispered.

Then pushing up on her toes, she pushed a light kiss to his lips, teasingly. Just as she dropped to pull away, he yanked her back to his lips, kissing her hungrily. His fingers skated down her sides, until they reached her hips, where he pulled her to him tightly. As he continued to kiss her, Ginny felt her knees weaken, and her breath become suddenly short. Unexpectedly she pulled away, breathing heavily.

"I thought you-"

"Ginny, I meant what I said. I do love, you and I always will." Draco stated boldly, cutting her off mid sentence.

Tears pricked at Ginny's eyes as he stroked her cheek gently, an unforgettable smile plastered upon his lips. Suddenly, a single tear fell, cascading down her rosy dimples, and hitting the stone floor.

"Oh, please don't cry Gin." Draco whispered pleadingly.

Ginny smiled weakly, wiping her eyes. "There not bad tears, I'm actually quite happy." She stated.

Draco smiled, and then sliding both arms around her, he pulled her flush against his chest. He rested his chin upon her head, as he held her tight.

"I love you." He whispered, kissing her temple lightly.

Ginny smiled, gazing up into her eyes. "I love you too. Through thick and thin, my heart will always belong to you."


A/N: Wow, it's over … it's really over! tear But, hey, I did have tons of fun writing this story, even if it didn't become the 'big hit' I wanted it to be. I might, and this is a maybe, write a prequel to this story. Seeing as we never really happens with Voldemort and Draco. But, then again that story might turn out to be sad, and I'd much rather you all have the idea they lived happily ever after. Well, enough rambling! That's it! Fire and Ice is finished! I want to thank all the fans of the series, who kept me going, especially when I was about to give up! Thanks so much all of you, it means a bunch! XP
