Part Two: One Of Those Days
Jade woke up the next morning and checked around for any surprise attacks by the arsonist. She pulled her clothes on and walked into her living room to see a broom on the table.
'You need it.' it simply said.
Jade smiled at Harry's gift for her again. It was an exclusive Firebolt that was fireproof, weatherproof and highly durable even in the worst conditions. Death couldn't even come close to Jade if she were to ride on this. Jade grinned and jogged out of the house after saying goodbye to Jerry. She locked her door and flew off to the Ministry.
"Got another broom to kill?" Blaise asked as Jade walked past him.
"Shut up." Jade snapped. Blaise grinned and Jade walked into the Aurseize Office where Hermione sat.
"Hey! What are you doing here?" Jade asked seeing Hermione get up.
"I dropped by to tell Ron to pick the kids up this afternoon and decided to see how you were. You're probably busy with fugitives today but I just wanted to see you." Hermione said. Jade hugged Hermione tightly and pulled back.
"I'm glad you got to see me. How long can you stay out?" Jade asked seeing Hermione giggle.
"I feel like I'm a teenager again with these curfews. I told Ron that if you and Ginny weren't busy, we'll have a girls night out and do some girly stuff…or something." Hermione said seeing Jade nod.
"You don't have any fugitives to catch today! Guess everyone's taking a day off except for me." Parvati said.
"Why don't you join us?" Hermione asked seeing Parvati shake her head.
"I have a date with this bloke I met through my sister." Parvati said seeing Hermione smile.
"I should do that-I mean…you can look but you can't touch right?" Hermione asked. Jade shrugged and started out the door.
"So what's going on with you these days? I've heard so much from Ron." Hermione said.
"Half of the things Ron will tell you are not true." Jade said.
"Like dating Harry?" Hermione asked.
"That's very false." Jade said.
"I understand there's an arsonist that masks himself and he's stalking you?" Hermione asked.
"I swear when I get my hands on him I'll-" Jade turned the corner and collided with someone.
She stared at Draco who gave her a cold look and gathered up his papers.
"I didn't see you there." Jade said.
"Of course you didn't. Probably day dreaming about Potter again." he said bitterly. Jade was a little put off by him but brushed it off thinking that he was probably having a bad day like she was permanently stuck with.
"I don't need help." Draco said.
"Don't worry about it, I've got it." Jade said. Draco snatched the papers away from her and shoved them into his arm.
"Great, you can't see and you don't know how to listen. Is it the Potter effect?" Draco asked snidely. Jade gaped at him and glanced at the people stopping nearby to watch the show down.
"What are you on Malfoy?" Jade asked.
"I don't know what I'm on! I'm on a fucking vegan diet, that's what I'm probably on." He said.
Jade covered her mouth to stop from smiling and it only irritated Draco even more.
"You should stop lying to Rita." Jade said. Draco snapped his head at Jade and looked her over.
"Oh and I should listen to you because you're a big shot at relationships? It's nice to see you're learning a lot from Potter." Draco said. Jade could feel her embarrassment trying to claw through the floor so the earth can swallow her.
"Malfoy leave her alone. What Jade and Harry do is none of your business." Hermione said, trying to drag Jade away.
"Of course it's not." Draco said.
"I don't even know what to say to you…honestly I can't even look at you. You've played with my feelings ever since I've stepped into Hogwarts. People give me shit because of what you did to me. I don't know…I don't even know." Jade said putting her hands to her head. She tried not to cry and told herself to hold everything in until she got to the elevators.
"And for the record I'm not seeing Harry. You can fuck off now Malfoy, I'm done with you." Jade said.
She turned and left with Hermione closely behind her. Jade got to the elevators and burst into tears, wailing and sobbing as hard as she could with Hermione trying to console her. The elevator doors opened and they were met face to face with Harry who looked caught again with surprise.
"Did someone die?" Harry asked. Jade walked past him and Hermione cringed, giving Harry a short synopsis of what happened. Harry nodded and left Jade alone, going into the elevator to straighten things out with Malfoy.
"I need food…lots of it." Jade said.
