Part Two: Breakfast At Draco's
Jade woke up to the smell of breakfast, fresh laundry and the softest and most comfortable bed she could ever dream of. She rolled on to her back, feeling her head pounding with a dull and steady pain. She didn't know where she was but it felt friendly. She rolled on to her back and ran her hand down her face, feeling the pillow creases on her face.
"Where am I?" Jade asked herself. She heard someone talking downstairs and the sizzling of food encouraged her to get up. She didn't feel entirely well and went back to the bed, clutching her head which got even worse. She looked at the crème colored walls and a giant plasma television sitting on a long wooden stand with small drawers with brass knobs.
Two framed pictures stood angled together on the stand and Jade looked closer to see one frame with Draco and his mother. Draco had his arm hugged across his mother who had a hand on Draco's arm and they both smiled at the camera. The other one was a family picture of Draco, Gary and Narcissa. Both men stood next to Narcissa who brought them close to her face with her hands on their cheek. Jade stared at the pictures and wondered how she ended up in Draco Malfoy's house out of all places. She couldn't remember a single thing and here she was with a soft white T-shirt that didn't belong to her and her dress hung on a chair.
Jade took the T-shirt off and threw it on the chair, slipping on her dress. She needed to find a way to get out before Draco came back and rubbed it in her face. She looked out of Draco's bedroom window and saw that it was a small drop down. She opened the windows and stepped out slowly on the ledges. She bent down to her knees and got a good hold of the ledges and swung down a little roughly on her feet. She stumbled backwards, feeling the wet grass under her feet and frowned that she didn't have any shoes.
Jade turned around to see Draco standing in front of her and she yelped.
"What the hell?! How did you do that?!" Jade asked. Draco shook his head at her appearance.
"Mrs. Davis called me when saw you escaping from the bedroom window. You're tarnishing my image sweetheart." Draco said. Jade narrowed her eyes at him.
"What am I doing here anyways? Why am I dressed in this? Why do I have a hangover that's making my head seize?" Jade asked, clutching her head. Draco gave her a rough sigh and looked at his house.
"I made breakfast and it's going to burn if I don't check on the toast." He said. Jade eyed him suspiciously.
"Merlin, I like you when you're drunk. So much more fun than this." He said leaving.
Jade stood there, feeling awkward. She had no idea how she got here. She didn't feel like she had sex so that meant that Draco had been a gentleman to her. He even made her breakfast.
Jade would be rude to walk away.
"Are you coming in or not? I swear I won't touch you or pull anything smart." He said. Jade lingered for a while and decided she would stay for breakfast.
"If you touch me I'll pin you to the floor and make you eat dirt." Jade said. Draco gave her a flat look.
"You have no idea how turned on I am." He said sarcastically. Jade wiped her feet on the welcome mat and walked through the front door of his house.
There was a large and spacious living room with a few cozy furniture, a stylish wooden coffee table over a large decorated rug. The floors were a light wooden color and there was a large fireplace with a simple and delicate painting over the mantel piece.
"Wow." Jade said looking around.
"Impressed?" he asked near her. Jade jumped and he moved back, with his hands up.
"I'm not trying to touch you." he said.
He walked away to the kitchen and Jade followed him, walking into a bright kitchen. The floors were sparkling clean and the walls in the kitchen were painted olive with a framed picture of a red wine bottle. There was an island in the center of the kitchen and Draco pulled out a seat for her to sit in. When she sat down, Draco pushed her in and went to take care of the breakfast.
"So we both had an interesting time last night." Draco said handing her a cup of hangover potion. Jade gulped it down and handed Draco the cup back, looking alarmed.
"What did we do? How did I even get here? I never knew where you lived!" Jade said seeing him smile and turn around.
"What's the last thing you remember?" he asked, taking plates out.
"Er…" Jade said. The only thing Jade could remember about was getting drunk at the restaurant. Little pieces of last night came back to her but it was all a blur.
"The last thing I remember was being in a restaurant with Hermione." Jade said.
"You were drinking weren't you?" he asked.
"Well after that embarrassing conversation with you yesterday I decided I needed some drinks. I don't even know what happened after that." Jade said. Draco presented Jade with a vegetable omelet and handed her a fork and a knife. He summoned another plate and filled it with toast and fruits.
"See this is the second time you've cooked for me." Jade said seeing him sit down next to her grinning.
"I wonder when it's your turn to cook…or I can register this in another one of your 'I owe you' boxes." He said.
"I don't owe you anything. Well maybe a dinner and a breakfast." Jade said. Draco looked at her and a slow smile crept up to his face.
"I like the sound of dinner and breakfast from you. Your place or mine?" he asked taking a bite out of his omelet. Jade cut into the soft and steaming omelet. She couldn't help but smile at his suggestion.
"Did I make you smile? I think the world's just stopped turning!" Draco joked. Jade turned around and flashed her eyes at him, still smiling.
"I smile." Jade said seeing Draco nod.
"Only when I'm not there." He said, concentrating on his food is voice and face neutral. He turned and looked at Jade and gave her a half hearted smile, going back to his food. Jade looked at her food, wondering what he meant. They sat in silence for a while and Jade picked out a conversation.
"I thought you were on a diet." Jade asked. Draco looked up from his food and furrowed his eyebrows.
"I told you what happened last night didn't I?" he asked.
"I was drunk remember?" Jade asked.
"Oh…" Draco nodded.
"What happened?" Jade asked.
"We broke up. Rita found out I was lying to her." Draco said, trying not to laugh.
"Do you think this is funny?" Jade asked seeing him shake his head, trying to look serious.
"She's a nice girl but I'm not crazy about her." Draco said.
"You're horrible." Jade said. Draco shrugged.
"If it looks that way so be it. I can't keep myself tied down to someone I don't think is worth it. Rita was hot for a few seconds…then she got too nice and the next thing you know, she's raiding my kitchen, taking out everything I had." Draco said.
Jade winced at the thought of someone throwing all of her food out. Not that she had much in her refrigerator anyways.
"I sort of liked her…in a weird way." Jade said seeing Draco nod.
"Yeah me too…she's likeable, even though she's the biggest health nut I've ever met in my life." Draco said as Jade chuckled.
"Rita? Try Harry; he always has something to say about whatever I eat." Jade said. Draco's eyes hardened and he reached over to his coffee.
"I've heard a lot about you and Potter." Draco commented.
"It was Aunt Muriel. She just linked us up together because we went to apprehend Marjorie Parkinson together." Jade said.
"How hard is it to apprehend an old woman?" Draco asked.
"Really hard if she's Marjorie. She's criminally insane and Pansy was there when I-or actually Aunt Muriel took her down." Jade said. Draco let out a bark of laughter.
"You took your Aunt to the memorial home again?" Draco asked seeing Jade shake her head. She explained what happened and saw Draco laughing at her. When Jade was finished, she took her plate and washed it, ignoring Draco's orders for her to leave the plate in the sink.
"I really like your house. It's so…peaceful and warm." Jade said turning to Draco who was watching her.
"Then move in with me." He winked.
Jade hung her shoulders and looked away from him, shaking her head. Her eye caught her reflection and she looked at the small mirror nearby. She had raccoon eyes and her lipstick from last night had been smeared and faded.
"You didn't tell me I looked like a raccoon run over! I look so bad." Jade said ripping out a tissue. Draco got up and placed his cup in the sink. She turned around to see him smiling to himself and rubbed his thumb at the corner of his lip.
"What? What are you laughing at?" Jade asked. Draco looked up and shook his head.
"Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I think the run over raccoon looks nice. I'm attracted to road kill." He said still smiling to himself. He walked away and Jade followed him.
"What are you hiding from me?" Jade asked seeing him turn around.
"I don't know what you mean. Maybe you should ask Granger and Weasley's sister or you can try to help me remember…my memory works best when I'm in the shower." He said.
Jade put her hands on her hips and tried to look as if she weren't the least bit affected or turned on by the thought. Draco was not going to get the best of her again. Draco walked towards her and slid an arm around her waist. He turned her towards a window and pointed at it.
"Do you see that window right there?" he asked. Jade looked at the window and looked back at him.
"So?" Jade asked. Draco grinned.
"When Granger and Weasley's sister tell you what happened, that's where it happened. Anyways I have to get to work. Do you want to join me in the shower?" Draco asked.
"Mmm, sounds tempting but I'll pass." Jade said as he kissed her head.
"Your loss. There's another bathroom if you want to wash up. Don't go anywhere; I'll drop you off in your apartment." Draco said seeing Jade nod.
"Take your time." Jade said seeing him leave.
"I wish I could but I have work. I'll be out in ten minutes." With that, he left to go upstairs to shower.
Jade walked up the stairs feeling that this was what a home should feel like. She walked into the other bathroom in Draco's house, which was located on the main level. Jade washed her face and patted her face dry. She left the bathroom and walked back to Draco's bedroom to see the makeup stains on the pillow. She was in the process of removing the pillowcases when Draco walked in with only his pants on.
"What are you doing?" he asked.
'Stop gaping! Close your mouth and act normal! Speak in coherent sentences and look confident!' the voice in her head said.
"Gah-pillow-make…up." Jade croaked.
'Excellent job…couldn't have done it better myself.' The voice said.
The corners of Draco's lips twitched and he stood there, watching Jade. She found him incredibly intimidating without a shirt, maybe if she pictured him in his underwear.
"Oh my God…" Jade breathed, trying not to have a heart attack. Then the next thing she knew, she was held tightly against Draco.
"I'm not going to lie to you, but you're driving me insane and I know you're thinking about me." Draco said.
Jade wondered if he'd comply if she pushed him away and tried to act like he didn't bother her. Right now, both her mind and heart told her that they were very much bothered by Draco, in a good way of course. Jade trailed her hands around his smooth fresh skin that smelled tantalizing. She locked her fingers behind his neck and brought him closer.
"Wait." Jade said before she went to kiss him. "Don't you have work in a few minutes? It's 9:45." Jade said as Draco gently pushed her towards the bed.
"I'm not letting this go. It's so hard to be where I am. I had you on my bed the whole night and couldn't do anything. Please cut me some slack." Draco said slipping her dress off.
"Okay…" Jade said in an abnormally high voice.
Draco Malfoy was half naked and a bed was behind her, Jade was going to give in to temptation. Losing a couple of calories never killed anyone. Draco mounted himself on her and Jade started unbuckling his belt while kissing him. Draco fondled her breasts and broke his lips from hers, kissing down her chest. They suddenly felt something vibrate between them and paused.
"Wow Malfoy, that's quite an erection you have." Jade joked seeing him take out his cell phone. He tossed it on his desk but the phone kept vibrating.
"I don't care." He said, taking her again.
"What if it's important?" Jade asked as the cell phone kept vibrating.
"The Ministry can wait, there's no way I'm going to wait another second for this." Draco said. He went to kiss her again but heard a pop outside of the house and someone knocking and ringing the doorbell.
"Fuck my life. Fuck me. I'm going to kill myself before this day ends." Draco said getting off of the bed. He walked out of the bedroom and Jade got up, equally frustrated. She put her dress back on and walked out of the bedroom to see Draco sprinting up the stairs.
"Your fucking apartment is on fire and they found a body in there." Draco said.
