Living the Dream
Dumbledore and Draco, 100 Words.
Weak as he was, Dumbledore's mind was still as nimble as ever. Young Draco was desperate – he didn't want to do this, and Dumbledore thought he had a better than even chance of talking the boy down. This evening could still end up a victory for the light side.
Draco was sweating, worried, and almost in tears. The boy, and he was certainly still a boy, cruel as he was, was no cold-blooded killer.
Still, having his headmaster at wandpoint? Even facing his the next great adventure, Dumbledore couldn't but think that Draco was living many a students' dream.
