Chapter 19-Being This Boy
Finally the day came when Draco and Ron were to be switched back in to their rightful bodies and it was difficult to decide which boy was more relieved.
As soon as Draco had woken up he had tore off his pajamas and quickly shoved on some clothes before running to Snape's office not even bothering to clean his teeth, have a wash or go to the great hall for breakfast.
He pounded on the door before diving right inside and dashing in to Snape's living quarters calling for his professor.
Hang on…why would Snape leave his office door unlocked? Draco thought as he stood in the man's living room. He heard some hushed voices coming from Snape's bedroom and Draco wondered what was going on. Did Weasley wake up earlier than me to get here? No way, he's probably still snoring away now and besides, Snape would never let a Gryffindor in to his bedroom.
Feeling confused as well as curious Draco tip-toed over to the bedroom door wondering if he dared to enter and see who was keeping Snape company.
I'd better not Draco decided as he moved to take a seat on the couch. He'd probably make me stay in Weasley's body forever if I interrupted. The whispered voices stopped and Snape slipped out of his bedroom door fully dressed. Did he get lucky last night? Poor Hermione will be devastated to hear that…wait a minute…I don't remember seeing Hermione in the common room last night, could she be hiding in Snape's room? No, no way.
"Good morning Draco." Snape greeted sounding far too cheerful.
"Sir." He replied studying the dark-haired man carefully. "I trust you slept well."
"Very well indeed." Snape replied.
"So this potion thing, you are sure that it will work aren't you?" Draco asked.
"Positive." Snape answered confidently as he made himself a cup of tea. "But I won't be able to administer it until Mr. Weasley joins us so why don't you run along for now and I'll come and find you later."
"Who are you hiding in your bedroom?" Draco asked as he realised his teacher was trying to get rid of him so that he could return to his 'guest'.
"I have no idea what you're talking about." Snape said too quickly to be believable.
How the hell has he survived as a spy? Draco marveled. He's a useless liar. The Dark Lord must be a complete idiot; either that or I'm just smarter than everyone else and can tell that Snape's lying.
"Oh of course not." Draco retorted sarcastically causing the older man to glare. Ok, that's the Snape I know.
Feeling slightly intimidated by the harsh glare he was receiving Draco turned away to focus on something else. As he looked about the room his eyes landed on a Gryffindor school tie.
What? Draco thought as he stared at it. Why is that…he has a student hiding in his room. Draco realised. A Gryffindor student. Hermione, it must be Hermione.
"How is the lovely Hermione this morning?" Draco asked unable to resist himself.
"She's well she's just waiting for me to…" Snape trailed off and turned paler than normal as he stared at Draco in horror as his own stupidity dawned on him.
Oh this is priceless Draco thought in amusement. Severus Snape outsmarted by a fifth year. A fifth year in a Gryffindors body no less. He looks like he wants to kill me; I'd better call for Hermione.
"Sir, sir just calm down." Draco said gently as the vein in Snape's temple began to throb and he started gnashing his teeth together. "Hermione, help me!"
Draco jumped over the sofa just as Snape made to dive at him and then ran in to Snape's bedroom shutting the door in his professor's face before locking it on him.
He turned around and came face to face with Hermione who was only wearing one of Snape's shirts.
She had her hands on her hips and was tapping her foot on the floor as she glared at him.
Oh shit, I'm in trouble Draco thought. Angry Hermione or angry Snape?
"Draco Malfoy…" Hermione began in a sharp tone.
Snape Draco decided before pulling the door open and colliding with the potions master sending them both crashing to the floor. Oh fuck I'm straddling Snape, time to get up.
"I think I'll go get some breakfast after all." Draco said nervously as he tried to make a run to the door that led back to Snape's office.
"Draco, stop right that." Snape barked and Draco instantly froze.
I'm going to die Draco panicked. Goodbye Harry, I love you so much I'm sorry things couldn't work out between us.
"This isn't what it looks like." Snape said and there was a desperate note to his voice.
He really is an awful liar Draco thought.
"Oh it's exactly what it looks like." Draco spoke up as he turned round to face the teacher and pupil. "And quite frankly I don't care. I won't say anything to anyone, I promise so just…stop glaring at me."
And please let me go, this is so beyond awkward Draco added to himself.
"Draco, if anybody found out about this Severus would be fired, maybe even arrested." Hermione told him.
Yes I realise that, I'm not a fucking idiotic Hufflepuff Draco snapped at her in his head.
"And it would destroy my reputation." Hermione continued.
"I've just said I promise I won't tell anyone." Draco huffed. "Anyway, I don't know what you're so worried about, I'm sure Dumbledore already knows. Now please, can I go?"
Without waiting for an answer Draco fled the room and thankfully neither Snape nor Hermione tried to stop him.
When he arrived at the great hall he found that Blaise was sat at the Slytherin table so he made his way over to join him.
"You alright dude?" Blaise asked through a mouthful of bacon. "You seem a bit shaken up."
"I'm fine." Draco answered gruffly as he made himself some cereal. "Why isn't Weasley awake yet? We're getting changed back today."
"Theo was trying to wake him up when I left." Blaise informed him. "They should be along soon. So what time is the change?"
"I'm not sure." Draco replied just as Harry stepped inside.
He watched the Gryffindor move across the hall and take a seat beside Ginny with his back to him.
I bet he did that on purpose Draco thought. Ah well, it gives me a better view of is his ass. Or at least it did until some Ravenclaw dunderhead sat straight in my line of vision. Move you stupid girl! Yes you with the horrid haircut, I'm glaring at you and I demand that you move.
Clearly frightened by the menacing glare she was receiving, the little Ravenclaw first year moved down to the other end of the table and Draco once again had a good view of Harry Potter's backside.
As Draco was pouring himself a cup of pumpkin juice, Theo and Ron made their entrance. They stood by the doors for a few moments before separating, Theo joining the Slytherins and Ron joining the Gryffindors.
"So today's the big day then." Theo commented as he sat opposite Draco. "How are you feeling Cookie?"
"I can't wait to get my sexy body back." Draco answered. "Now move a little to the left."
"I beg your pardon?" Theo asked in confusion.
"Move to the left." Draco repeated. "I want to stare at Harry's bum."
Theo just laughed lightly before moving to the side and stabbing his fork into a pork sausage which he began to eat in a very seductive fashion.
That mouth of his best not have been anywhere near my dick whilst Weasely was in my body Draco thought before turning his attention back to Harry's rear.
Just as Draco was finishing off his breakfast Hermione strolled in and sat down at the Gryffindor table. Ginny immediately leaned towards the girl and started questioning her about something.
Probably wondering where she was last night Draco deduced. I wonder if she knows what's going on between Hermione and Snape. Well even if she doesn't know she'll figure it out sooner or later. So when's Snape coming? I want my body back already.
"Are you ok sweetheart?" Theo asked as he studied Draco. "You look a little troubled, your bottom lip's pouting out and everything."
"I just want to get this change over and done with." Draco said. "I'm sick of having red pubic hair."
Theo frowned whilst Blaise snorted out a mouthful of scrambled egg.
At long last Snape arrived and beckoned for both Draco and Ron to follow him. From the look on Hermione's face it seemed that she wanted to come along too but she managed to restrain herself and stay seated.
Both Draco and Ron struggled to keep up with Snape's swift strides and they practically had to jog all the way to his office. They entered and Snape snapped the door shut behind them.
The potions master poured a dose of potion into two separate beakers before plucking out a single strand of blonde hair from Ron's borrowed head and adding it to one glass. He then ripped out a handful of strands of red from Draco's borrowed head and added a single hair to the second beaker.
Ouch! Snarky bastard did that on purpose Draco's mind grumbled as he massaged his sore scalp. It's not my fault I found out he was shagging Hermione.
"Drink the whole thing in one go." Snape told them as he handed both boys their beakers.
This better work both Ron and Draco thought as they wrinkled their noses at the bad smelling potion.
"To being this boy." Draco drawled raising his glass in a mock toast.
"Being this boy." Ron echoed raising his own.
They clicked their beakers together before tipping the liquid down their throats and swallowing.
For a few seconds, the two teenagers floated a few inches in the air. They landed back on their feet and were relieved to find themselves back in their own bodies.
"My face." Draco said gratefully as he touched his smooth cheeks. "My beautiful face. And my lovely hair, and my perfectly rounded bum, my perfect sized cock with my blonde pubic hair and my nails…MY NAILS!" Draco screeched as he looked down at them. "What the fuck Weasley? You've ruined them."
"Sorry." Ron mumbled. "I can't help that I bite my nails. It's a bad habit ok."
"That's fine, bite your own nails as much as you please but you had no right to bite mine." Draco told him.
"Oh do stop whining Draco your nails will grow back." Snape snapped at him. "Now as you're both back to your normal annoying selves remove yourself from my office at once."
Together, they left the office, Draco slouching like a Weasley and Ron strutting like a Malfoy before they remembered they were themselves again and reverted to their own style of walking before heading to their lessons.
The following day Draco woke up early and took his time showering and selecting an outfit; he wanted to look mouthwatering for his date with Harry.
Once he was ready he headed down to the Slytherin common room and started to read a book to pass the time. For some reason, he was too nervous to go down to the hall and eat and he didn't want to risk dropping food down his outfit.
He'd only read a page or two when Pansy sat down beside him still wearing her nightgown. She linked her arm through his and rested her head on his shoulder.
I actually kind of missed this Draco thought. Not that I'll ever tell her that of course.
"Do you think he'll show up?" Pansy asked referring to Harry.
"I really don't know." Draco admitted. "I hope so. Anyway, what are you doing today?"
"I'm staying here." Pansy replied. "I'm going to read some romance novels and pig out on chocolate."
That's sweet Draco thought as he smiled at her knowing what she was really doing. She's staying here so I'll have someone to cry to just in case Harry stands me up.
The blonde turned back to his book and carried on reading with Pansy reading over his shoulder. Just as he was getting engrossed in the story Pansy nudged him and told him it was time for him to make a move. He handed his book to her then made his way down to Hogsmeade.
During yesterday's Charms lesson Draco had sent Harry a note telling him to meet him outside the Three Broomsticks at ten o'clock.
When Draco arrived ten minutes early Harry wasn't there. At precisely ten o'clock Harry still hadn't arrived. One and a half hours later there was still no sign of Harry and feeling heartbroken and rejected, Draco made his way back to the castle partly wishing that he really was Ronald Weasley. Perhaps the redhead wasn't as rich as Draco, or as attractive or as clever, but Ron had Theo whilst Draco Malfoy had nothing but the hole in his heart.
