The rest of the night goes smoothly, ending with Draco walking me back to Gryffindor Tower, his arm wrapped firmly around my waist, my shoes in his hand, my feet bare.
We stop outside the entrance, ignoring the way the Fat Lady looks at us, trying to wink at me conspiratorially.
"You're welcome," he murmurs, sneaking in a kiss along my jawline, "I'm glad that this happened."
"Everything?" I confirmed, looking into his eyes.
"Everything," he confirms with another kiss, this one longer, lingering about my mouth.
I smile against his lips, and he lets me go. As I turn to walk away, he stops me, a mischievous smile tugging at his lips. "Gin?"
He produces a rolled piece of parchment from the pocket of his black pants. "This is for you."
And then he leaves.
I walk into the Common Room and straight up to my dorm, ignoring everyone else in the vicinity.
I perched on my bed, carefully unrolling the parchment.
I love her.
I exhaled a long breath, hugging the note to my chest, knowing exactly who 'Anonymous' was.
