Write a drabble featuring Crabbe and Goyle before exams.

104 words.


The sight of Crabbe and Goyle attempting to study for the upcoming exams had Draco in fits of suppressed laughter. At his suggestion, they had found a bowl of candies, with the intention eating one each time they got a question right.

The bowl of candies was untouched. They probably would have eaten the whole thing if Draco was not holding it out of their reach.

"You two," Draco said, popping a candy idly into his mouth "should just give up studying. It will not be doing you any good."

Neither of them could bring themselves to find a retort, which suited Draco fine.
