Draco was still oblivious. He drew a figure eight on the countertop. The man closed the door behind him as quietly as he could. The Mohawk guy said hey and his girlfriend smiled and waved. As he passed people, making his way to the back of the counter, they said hello to him.
He did not fit in with the rest of the people. Beside his bright red hair, he looked rather normal. Except for a long, thin something in his back pocket.
Draco was still thinking, still not noticing the newly arrived person. He sighed. He had always known that they were not meant for each other, deep down in his heart. That it was temporary, that he did not really love her. They had mostly been friends and really, supported each other, but now she had Pansy. And he got the house.
He banged his head against the counter and left it there for a second, letting it cool his head.
"Hey Abby!" The waitress gave him a one-armed hug, using the other hand to close her phone.
"Tell me again why you call me Rain?" He took off his coat and got ready to work, putting on his apron, which was thankfully not girly.
Draco, head still on the table, heard the voice from the new comer. He knew that voice, but he could not remember who…
"Because every time it starts to rain you start giggling manically. I don't think you do it on purpose, but you defiantly do it." They laughed. Draco was unable to control his curiosity. He looked up. The yell that followed echoed around the room, and for the third time that day, everyone was staring at Draco.
"MALFOY? Oh no, get out. OUT!" He pointed at the door, glaring at Draco, breathing heavy.
Draco looked at him, wide-eyed with his mouth slightly open. So it was Weasley. He sighed, running his finger through his hair. Of course it was Weasley's place.
"Please, Weasley? All I want is a coffee and a place to sit for half an hour, and then I'll leave and never come back." Ron was surprised to hear a hint of desperation in his voice. He was looking suspiciously at him when Abby spoke.
"Hey Rain, I don't know how you know this guy, but he just had a majorly harsh break-up. She basically walked out on him smiling with Pansy. And you're the normal one. And don't worry, we won't let him do anything." She gave him an evil grin. Ron sighed.
"Alright, you can stay. But don't come back." Draco smiled a little, and Ron was again shocked at his apparent sincerity. "So what do you want?"
"Orange mocha frappachino." He sounded exhausted… was it because of his girlfriend?
"What size?" He wondered if it was still Lavender.
"Large." He thought for a moment. "Or whatever the largest size you have is." Ron started to make it. He had not really cared when Lavender had dumped him for Draco. He had never really liked her, it had just been a fling. She was insane, he knew, so it was not hard to imagine her walking out smiling. But if Draco was all worked up about it, then he must have been stupid. Though they had been together for, what was it, six years?
"Here." He put the 'extra-large' cup next to the half-asleep man. He knew he was being short, and that Abby was still watching him, but he did not really care.
"Thanks." Draco sighed, chugging half of it. Ron tried not to laugh. Maybe he would stay and talk to him for a bit.
"So I heard your girlfriend broke up with you. Is that why you look so bad?" Draco smirked at him.
"Yeah, Lav ran off to Russia, but I 'look so bad' because I've been working all night." Ron smirked back. So he was not insane. Completely.
"That's right, you moved up in life. You know, I guess that means you're my boss, doesn't it." This time Malfoy sneered.
"You should come into the office, weasel."
"Yeah right, bald-headed ferret, I stay as far away from that place as possible." Draco laughed, not quite as tired as he was before. Ron, who had been ready for a fight, started to laugh too. Draco had changed. This, he knew, was the real Draco Malfoy.
"You just want to torture Smith, don't you?" They laughed again. Draco could not remember being this happy in a long time.
"So it does work!" They laughed once more. Draco looked at the clock on the wall and sighed.
"Well," he said, putting his coffee cup and some money on the counter. "I have to go back to work."
Draco got stood up, leaning on his hands on the counter. Ron's mind wandered back to his Hogwarts days as he looked at him. He remembered all the years of torture and pain Draco had caused him and his friends. His dislike toward Malfoy came back in a wave.
"Hey, I'm sorry about all the tings I did back then, and I know that sorry can't begin to make up for it, nothing can, and trust me, if I could go back and change it all, I would." Ron stared at him for a second, then smiled. This was the thing he had wanted ever since they left school.
"Don't worry about it. You've changed now." Draco smiled back at him. Their eyes met.
"See you later weasel." Draco sneered.
"Don't forget to come back, ferret." Ron said, all business again.
Draco left thinking, 'Don't worry, I'll be back tomorrow.'
"Not to sound girly or anything, but spill." Ron looked over at Harry blankly for a second. Harry sighed at his dense friend, pulling him into a pantry.
"What?" Ron asked as the door shut behind them.
"Don't act all stupid, you've been acting strange all night. Tell me." Harry glared at him with his hands on his hips. In the dark Ron could not exactly see Harry, but he could sense what his friend was doing.
"You know you sound gay as hell right now, right? I think Snape's rubbing off on you. By the way, are you two going to move in yet?" He could feel Harry start to blush in the silence.
"Don't change the subject." Harry said, halfheartedly.
"You are!" Ron let out a raucous laugh.
"Shut up already!" Ron cringed at the punch he received in return for his fun. It was totally worth it.
"Anyway, I'm not letting you leave until you tell me what happened today." Ron sighed.
"Fine." He told Harry about his encounter with Draco. After he was done, Harry burst out laughing.
"What?! What's so funny? That wasn't funny" Ron waited as Harry kept laughing. He was trying to pull himself together enough to breath.
"Dude, Ron…" Harry gasped, "You two had a moment!" Ron's mouth fell open as Harry half fell out the door, laughing hysterically again. He knew he would have to leave the Burrow before Ron came to his senses and beat him.
Back in the pantry, Ron waited, still open-mouthed. Harry was stupid. He never had a moment with Malfoy. He sighed, remembering that last second before Malfoy left. Maybe they had a moment, but not a romantic one. He pushed the door open, walking into the light. He hoped Draco would come back the next day.
Sooo? You like? R&R!!! And I'll love you forever!! And keep writing! But I won't if you don't so do!! XD And, I would really love you forever if you did my pole thingy, because it's important to whom I write the next Snape story on!! So if you have like… 30 seconds, do it!! Anyways, just remember that Japanese monkeys are evil, don't assume people who aren't in the asylum aren't insane, they could have been kicked out, and white chocolate and Thai tea are amazing, but not mixed together. That's all for now folks, and tune in next week to see the latest episode of What Happens Behind Pantry Doors.
Love you all!!
XD TABBY XD
