Introduction: Defending Malfoy
In the morning, Jade woke up with Hermione and Ginny to get ready for classes.
"Snape's a pig." Ginny said as they walked down the stairs.
"Ginny." Hermione started. "You know it's true Herm." Ginny said.
"You've told me." Jade said.
"Hello Neville, are Ron and Harry up yet?" Hermione asked. Neville nodded, tying his shoe.
"They're the first ones to leave the common room for their schedules." Neville said.
"Thank you Neville." Hermione said. They all walked out of the common room and into the Great Hall where they saw Harry and Ron. Jade still had a hard time trying to keep up with the routes since they had taken a different direction.
"Gods, this castle is so weird." Jade said seeing Hermione and Ginny smile.
"Tell me about it." They said. They all greeted the boys who were joined today with two other boys.
"That's Dean and Seamus, this is Jade." Ron said. Jade shook hands with Dean and Seamus.
"How many others are there of ye'? Seamus asked as everyone chuckled.
"I'm the only child. No more surprise Weasley's…for this year at least." Jade said sitting down.
"Never say never. So why did you transfer so late?" Dean asked.
"Oh well my Aunt Muriel's getting old so my Dad decided that we should move near Aunt Molly and Uncle Arthur's so it would be convenient for all of us. And since I'm moving close to the cousins here, why not go to the same school with them?" Jade asked. McGonagall walked by and handed all of them their individual schedules.
"Hey Jade, what's your best subject?" Hermione asked, looking up from her schedule. Jade shrugged.
"I'm great with Divination actually." Jade said. Hermione looked offended and the rest looked confused. "Well it's basically bullshit isn't it? And anyone's good with bullshitting." Jade said. Harry put down his apple and smiled at Jade.
"Really now?" Jade smiled and went to say something but McGonagall intervened.
"Mr. Potter, of course you have been informed that you are this year's Quidditch Captain?" McGonagall asked. Gryffindor clapped for Harry who only smiled.
"As I was saying, Quidditch tryouts will be held all throughout this week starting today after classes at the Quidditch Pitch."
Their first class was Potions with Slytherins. Jade heard about the Gryffindor and Slytherin feud from Ron and Ginny. She really couldn't care less about the feud but as long as they were clear out of her way, she was fine. Jade was even well informed about the Malfoys, especially that chicken fucking prick Draco Malfoy. Jade took a seat next to Hermione and looked around the classroom to see a girl with a short bob cut, buffing her nails against her shirt. She looked up, wrinkled her nose and rolled her eyes.
Jade raised her eyebrows and heard a few voices from the doorway. Two tall and lean boys walked in, their eyes resting on her. The one with the dark hair looked creepy but the blonde one narrowed his eyes playfully, causing Jade's breath to get stuck midway in her air pipe. A large fat boy stumbled into his back, causing him to turn around, his face full of disgust.
"Didn't I tell you to stop running into me that way Crabbe? For fuck's sake I'm not a wall." Malfoy said. Ron snorted behind Jade, causing Malfoy to turn around towards them.
"What are you laughing at Weasley?" Malfoy asked. Jade turned around to Ron, seeing him and Harry grin.
"We feel bad when you speak to your wife like that. They have feelings too you know." Ron said.
"Stop being an arse Ron." Jade said, pushing his arm lightly. Draco shifted his attention to Jade who looked up to him. "Sorry about that." Jade said. Draco only smiled at her.
"Thank you." he said.
Blaise gave Draco a look of disbelief.
"Wha-" Blaise went to say but was pushed back by Draco.
Snape walked into the room and ordered everyone to get to their seats.
"Why are you standing there Mr. Malfoy? Sit down." Snape said. Jade snapped her head towards Draco who had been looking at her. Her face fell and so did her spirits. She unknowingly defended the chicken fucking prick Draco Malfoy.
From the look on her face, Draco suspected that he wasn't going to have her as easily as he would have liked. Draco took a seat next to Blaise who jabbed him in the arm.
"What the fuck were you thinking? You said thank you to a Weasley?" Blaise whispered fiercely to Draco who watched the Weasley cousins argue hotly over what had just happened.
"I had no idea that was Malfoy. You know me Ron. If I knew from before, I would have handed you a shovel to whomp his head off." Jade whispered to Ron when he asked what she was on for defending Malfoy. A throat cleared and Jade turned around to see Snape hovering over her.
"New student I see. 10 points off for speaking in my class. Now…" Snape went off, leaving Jade and the rest of Gryffindor in a foul mood. Jade couldn't help but sometimes glance towards Malfoy who would catch her eye, smile and look away before she did. Things were going to be very frustrating this year and Jade was glad that this was the only year and the only time she was ever going to see Draco Malfoy.
