Chapter 1


"Malfoy, we're engaged. You know that right?" I asked the blonde git lounging lazily on one of the seats in the Gryffindor Common Room.

Scorpius rolled his grey eyes as he plopped his feet on the coffee table. "We were just snogging, love. No bodily fluids below our torsos were exchanged."

"Do you know what engaged means, Malfoy?"

"Ofcourse. I'm not stupid."

I widened my eyes and gasped dramatically, "Really?"

"Honestly, Weasley."

"Can you please at least pretend to be a decent fiancé?"

"We talked about this. We agreed not to snog nor shag anyone in public while we're stuck in this situation. I thought the broom cupboard was private!"

I exhaled in annoyance and slapped his feet off the table.

He was right. We did talk about this. Scorpius and I didn't like each other. So, we agreed that we were allowed to see other people as long as not many people knew. I didn't even know why I was acting this way. I knew Scorpius loved to play around and I didn't care, but seeing him grinding on some other bird made my stomach turn.

"I have needs, Weasley. I can't stay celibate forever," he continued.

"I know, I know. But you just can't keep snogging other witches, Malfoy. You can't get caught. If you do, what do you think will happen?"

"Our engagement will be cancelled."

Something painful tugged at my chest. "Malfoy, we can't let that happen. We'll disappoint our parents."

"Who cares what they think? They arranged this. Why don't they marry each other?"

I frowned. "Who cares? I care! If they catch you with another girl, the wizarding world will go crazy. I'll be humiliated."

"Then, you should get caught in one of the broom cupboards with a bloke."

"Why do you keep trying to break our engagement off?"

"Why do you keep trying to save this bloody engagement?" Scorpius countered.

I quickly looked away and muttered, "I'm not. We don't like each other, right?"

"Yes. We don't."

"We don't."

Scorpius stood up, ran his fingers through his hair and pecked me on the cheek, "That's it then. See you later, love."

~ea~

"Rosie, are you all right?"

"Yes, Al. Why?" I asked, as I helped myself to a spoonful of bacon and eggs in the Great Hall.

"Nothing. It's a cousin thing."

I rolled my eyes, "Seriously, Albus."

"Okay. Fine. Your eyes are all red and puffy."

I rubbed my eyes. "I couldn't sleep last night.." I mumbled apprehensively.

"Hey, love."

I stiffened, "Malfoy."

"What's wrong? Didn't you sleep well last night?" Scorpius asked anxiously, as he sat beside me.

I recoiled and inched away from him. "Actually, I didn't. Remember?"

"But, love, I-"

"Don't call me that, you bloody git." I snapped.

Albus nervously glanced at both Scorpius and I, and gulped. "Scorpius, Rose. I'll talk to you guys later."

"Rose, I'm sorry."

"Can your sorry fix anything?" I muttered, as Albus left with Lily and Hugo trailing after him.

"Rose..."

"What?"

"Are you jealous?"

"Jealous?" I scoffed, "Don't get ahead of yourself, you arse."

"You're really acting like jealous girlfriend right now."

"Because I am your girlfriend. I am your fiancé. I'm not angry because you were dry humping some girl in a broom cupboard. I'm angry because you got caught. Just like I told you." I replied scathingly, whilst poking his hard chest to emphasize what I was trying to say.

Scorpius ran his long pale fingers through his white blonde hair and sighed, "Alright. I'm sorry, Rose."

"Empty words, Malfoy." I snapped, before stalking off to my class angrily.

~ea~

"Look at her. Scorpius told me he doesn't even want to be with her. She's just someone to pass his time with."

"Obviously. Scorpius certainly showed me how much he loves it when I wear nothing underneath my skirt last night."

"What did he do?"

"You know he likes it rough," she giggled. "Well, when I told him I wasn't wearing any, he grabbed me, pushed me up against the wall and palmed my-"

"Excuse me, Madam Pince." What? I had to stop them. Bile started to rise up my throat with the images they were trying to conjure in my head. "I can't understand a single word in this book because of their mindless chatter," I said, smiling serenely at the old librarian.

She turned to the gossiping sluts and muttered angrily, "You're making a racket! Leave!"

Scorpius' whores glowered menacingly at me and left, their hip swaying unattractively. If they whored themselves to him so much, why don't they just marry him, then? That will save me from eternal hell.

"Weasley."

Oh, speaking of hell.

"What?"

"I really am sorry." Scorpius whispered, looking at me hopefully.

"You know what?"

"What?"

"No."

I gathered my things and left, not giving him a chance to apologize again.

"Rose!" Scorpius yelled, running after me.

I continued to walk, pointedly ignoring his yells.

"Stop walking away from me, Rose."

Stop walking away from him? He left me no choice! Bloody arrogant-

"Fine, Rose. Ignore me. Fine. I give up."

I felt something inside me snap and I lashed around, yelling, "You give up? Bloody hell, Scorpius. You have been playing around for a year since our engagement and I let you be, but enough is enough. I know I'm not supposed to care, but you don't know how disgusted I feel about myself when I listen to other people talk about me when they hear about your conquests. I hate you."

Scorpius' eyes widened at my confession and he stiffened, gaping at me like some goldfish.

I stared at him, waiting for him to say something. Anything. But when a minute passed without him even moving a muscle, I left.


Hi, guys. I had to rewrite this story. I haven't been updating because I wasn't happy with it. I didn't like my writing and I felt like I was writing drabbles per chapter. I'm sorry. I hope you'll like it! Thank you! :)
