This is my first Drarry fic, I hope it's alright. Please tell me what you think, if I get a few good reviews I will continue the story :)
A small, folded piece of parchment flew from the old goblet. It was caught by Albus Dumbledore, "Harry Potter?"
Harry stared around the room, it couldn't be him, he was too young, he hadn't even tried to put his name in the goblet. But he had been selected; he was to be the fourth champion in the Triwizard Tournament.
He felt a hand encourage him to his feet, so he stood up, glancing around the room only to see people he had thought of as friends glaring up at him.
The Slytherin's were shouting abuse at him, all except one; Draco Malfoy, the person who would usually take every chance he could to annoy Harry, yet he was refraining from doing so at this moment.
Harry woke up and lay in his bed for a moment, there was no point in getting up, everyone hated him at the moment, even Ron. But he would still have to prepare for the first task; he needed to be ready for whatever it was, even if he dreaded participating in it.
He slowly rose out of his bed, got dressed, then made his way downstairs to the great hall for breakfast.
He entered the hall to an exaggerated amount of the abuse that had been forced upon him the night before, it was exactly the kind of thing Harry hated, worse even than people staring at his scar every moment of every day.
"Potter! Potter! Come here will you!" Harry turned, Malfoy was screaming on him from the doorway to the great hall.
"What do you want Malfoy?"
"I… I just wanted to say that I'm sorry,"
"Sorry for what?" Malfoy merely shook his head, "sorry for what?" screamed Harry, drawing his wand from the pocket of his robes.
"Sorry that I will have to see you suffer, despite what you might think, I don't hate you quite enough to want to see you killed."
Harry nodded and left, he had no idea what to say, Malfoy was never this nice to him, there had to be something wrong, maybe Malfoy was going to trick him…
Harry made his way to his normal spot at the Gryffindor table, completely forgetting about the fact that he had fallen out with Ron. He instead concentrated on the fact the Malfoy was being nice to him, maybe Malfoy liked him, as in really liked him. Malfoy wasn't gay, of course not, he would never stand for that kind of thing, but maybe, just maybe.
"Harry! Harry move along will you!" his thoughts were interrupted by an unruly Hermione. He shifted along the bench a little, forcing the thoughts of Malfoy being gay out of his mind, why would he even care anyway? It wasn't as if he liked that arrogant fool…
Harry had admitted to himself (but only himself) a long time ago that he wasn't really interested in women, men had many more attractive qualities. But he wasn't quite ready to tell anyone that yet, he received enough unwanted attention as it was, he was in no need of more. Sure Malfoy was pretty good looking, you could tell he had muscles beneath his shirt, his hair looked so luxuriously soft, and his eyes… His eyes were fantastic! They constantly changed colour, sometimes being grey, others a brilliant, sparkling blue. Yes, Harry had to admit it, he liked him some bit, but he wasn't going to tell anyone that, no, he would allow everyone else to go on thinking that Harry liked girls for a few more years, and then he'd tell them.
He finished the toast set in front of him and then left for potions class; he was hoping that a horrible lesson with Snape would take his mind off things. Without realising it, Harry had walked all the way to the dungeons and through the door into the classroom, he looked at his watch, ten minutes early for potions! Something's wrong with me, not Malfoy!
Harry stared around the dark room, searching for something to do in the ten minutes before class was due to begin, Malfoy was there, sitting at a desk in the corner, "Potter? What are you doing her so early?"
"I could ask you the same question," replied Harry.
"I always get here early, surely you have noticed that I don't enjoy being in crowds."
"Really?" Harry was genuinely surprised by this statement; he had never noticed Malfoy being uneasy about anything before.
"Of course," he said, as if it were obvious, "I have always hated the great hall, and I'm always early for class, I thought even a dimwit like you would have realised that."
Harry didn't know what to say, so he just stood there, staring at Malfoy, unconsciously staring deep into the sparkling blue eyes that seemed to be moving closer with every second.
They were moving closer! Malfoy got up onto his feet, and was moving towards Harry, he felt something tingle deep in his stomach, a warm feeling spreading throughout his body. He shook his head, trying to rid himself of the feeling, but he couldn't, he wanted Malfoy, wanted him more than anything, "Sit down!" came the familiar smooth voice of Professor Severus Snape, "take your seats immediately, we have many things to get on with in this lesson."
There was a scraping of chairs against the hard stone floor as everyone took their seats, "today we will be working on creating a weak love potion by the name of Arschael. This potion only works on certain people, but, if brewed properly, it will create an obsession between the drinker and the first person viewed after consumption. This makes it very dangerous and unreliable, as the person it is given to can obsess over a different person from whom he or she is supposed to. I will split you into pairs for this task, Weasley, Granger, work together, Crabbe, Goyle, you are a pair, and, let's see Potter and Malfoy, you can work together."
There were many groans as the rest of the class were sorted into pairs, Harry felt that he should really be upset about being put in a pair with Malfoy, but he was looking forward to working with him. Malfoy always got high grades in potions, but by the end of the class, Harry's earlier optimism was gone, it seemed that Snape saw fit to blame everything that went wrong with the potion on Harry. And Malfoy got all the praise, this was turning out to be the worst potions project Harry had ever taken part in.
