Twins

Chapter 45

It was New Years Eve and there was a small (planned, I might add) gathering at the Zabini Manor. The Weasleys, Harry, and a few other adult friends had been invited, so the lot of them was settled on the roof of the building. There were surroundings of drinks, food, chairs, and plenty of space to gaze up at the stars. George Weasley was preparing in the far corner for his presentation of the spectacular Weasleys’ Wildfire Whiz-bangs, while the adults conversed in another corner, and the rest waited for the year to end and the New Year to begin.

Blaise pulled Ron to a side of the rooftop, “Can I talk to you?”

“Sure,” Ron took a sip of his butterbeer and nodded his head in means of ‘continue’.

“How exactly do you…do you get comfortable with the idea of your best friend dating your sister.”

The two men observed Harry and Ginny sitting next to each other. Blaise gulped.

“Alright you lot! THREE MINUTES TIL!” George yelled from his station.

Draco sat beside Grace, who was staring up at the stars. The night air was cold, and he had placed a warming charm around the two of them. “Happy New Year.” His tone was endearing.

“Happy New Year.” She gave him a brilliant smile.

Draco leaned towards her, “Your brother knows something about me that you have yet to figure out.”

“Oh? What is that?”

-x-

“TWO MINUTES!”

-x-

Draco gazed into her deep eyes; he was going to do this right. “I’ve asked your parents blessing to let me court you.”

Grace looked at him in shock, a smile slowly spreading across her angelic features.

“So will you?”

“Yes! Yes, I will love to.”

Draco laughed, “Alright then.”

-x-

“ONE MINUTE!”

-x-

“You do realize we are two completely different people.” Grace grinned.

Draco looked at her, “May I call you Hermione for a little bit?”

Grace nodded.

“I’ve always had a liking for you. Ever since you punched me in third year…did you know that?”

Grace shook her head, while Draco leaned forward.

“TEN!”

-x-

Their heads were only a few inches apart.

-x-

“NINE!”

-x-

Grace could feel his breath on her lips.

-x-

“EIGHT!”

-x-

Draco placed his hand on the side of her cheek.

-x-

“SEVEN!”

-x-

Draco closed his eyes.

-x-

“SIX!”

-x-

“Draco…”

-x-

“FIVE!”

-x-

“Hermione, stop thinking…just feel.”

-x-

“FOUR!”

-x-

Their lips were only an inch apart.

-x-

“THREE!”

-x-

Grace felt his body heat caress her nose.

-x-

“TWO!”

-x-

The fireworks went off into the night sky, flinging warm arrays of sparkle into the darkness.

-x-

“ONE!”

-x-

They kissed.
