His Strength. (A Draco Imagine)
Draco Malfoy and Reader
Promt: Draco and the Reader step off the train and see each other for the first time after not speaking for the summer holiday.
You sat in your compartment on the train not getting up with your fellow students beacuse you did not want to face him yet. You knew you would have to face him soon since you both were Sytherine and you shared a common room. However, you still had arrived early to platform 9 3/4 so you would not have to face him and sat with the Hufflepuffs knowing he would not reach this area.
Normally you wouldn’t care at being near him. You usually were right next to him with the group of your friends. At the end of 4th year though you and Draco Malfoy began to become more then just friends. The secret kisses, and holding hands by the lake all the beautiful memories.
One memory stuck with you though. You both were in the common room the last night you were together. You were sitting on the big leather couch near the fire reading a book you received by owl that day. You heard a loud noise and looked up to see Draco arriving in the common room with anger written on his face. Tossing the book down you moved over as he sat down next to you. He explained to you what happened with Harry and his friends in Umbridge’s office. You spent your time calming him down and before you knew it you were kissing and wrapped up in each others arms. You didn’t care who saw you. Draco told you he cared for you that night that he would like to be serious with you. The next thing you knew Professor Snape came in to speak to Draco, from what Draco told you his father had been arrested and he needed to go he was headed home per his mother’s request. All you could do was nod as he had kissed you one last time and promised to write. He left with Professor Snape and that was the last you heard from him. You had sent many owls but none had been returned. You had sent for your supplies this year because you didn’t want to chance seeing him. Now sitting on the train you wished that you did go to get your own supplies to get seeing him out of the way.
You couldn’t hear anyone moving anymore singnaling you that no one was left on the train so you stood up grabbing your bag and the case holding your cat Athena. Walking towards the exit you stepped out in the fresh air taking a deep breath. Turning you began to walk towards the school stopping in your tracks. There he was looking right at you. You smiled lightly and noticed that he looked different but more handsome then you remembered. He stepped towards you as you began to walk to him.
"Draco, how are you?" You asked finally reaching him.
"Y/N, I thought you would already be at the school." He said finally getting to hear is voice after so long.
You both stood there not knowing what to do. Finally you decided moving along would be great.
"Well it was good seeing you. I will see you around." You moved to pass him when you felt his hand grabs yours stopping you.
"Y/N I know your upset that I didn’t contact you this summer by answering your letters," you looked up at him and went to keep walking but he did not let go of your hand.
"Alright Draco I get it. It’s fine. Let’s just get to the school before we get in trouble."
"I…it’s been hard, things have been happening since my dad’s arrest. Things that I could not speak to you about." He did not meet your eye as he spoke.
You looked up at him and shook your head.
"So you spent a whole summer not speaking to me because of these things. What would make this year different then. Just because we are at school. You can’t just keep things from me and not speak to me when it’s convenient for you. I….. it’s just best we go our own ways."
You went to pull your hand but Draco just pulled you to his chest crashing his lips on yours. You dropped you stuff hearing your cat hiss. You didn’t care though you didn’t care of anything at the moment, just that Draco’s lips were on yours. You wrapped your arm around his neck and deepened the kiss. After a moment you both broke the kiss gasping for breath. Draco leaned his forehead on yours placing his hand on your neck and hair.
"I can’t go on without you not being with me anymore. I won’t keep you away anymore I promise you that Y/N."
Smiling you looked deep into his eyes knowing this was true and you nodded taking his hand. He picked up your cat carrier as you two walked to the school. You knew whatever was going to happen in the future was not good. But as long as you both had each other you would be fine.
