The Tales of Draco Malfoy

By Tilda Tulett

Romance / Action

Chapter 1

It almost felt weird to feel on edge. Hogwarts was supposed to be the safest place there was. Yet ever since he let the death eaters in and Snape killed Dumbledore it was a ridiculously dangerous place to stay. Still people stayed, even some of the kids who were in the Order stayed. Well it was more like they hadn't been lucky enough to escape back when it was possible to do so. It was too high on security to be able to leave now without causing at least some destruction.

Snape being Headmaster was actually a blessing in disguise, none of the other students realised how much worse it would be if one of the other Death Eaters was in charge. Draco tried not to shudder at the thought. He continued to sneak up to the Heads towers, not that it was hard, no one was stupid enough to break curfew. Filch was no longer the biggest threat hanging around the castle at night.

Making sure he didn't lose his concentration Draco, like the Slytherin he was, slithered around the bends and corners of the castle. He was almost caught by a patrolling Dementor but managed to go around it and eventually was outside the door to the Heads Tower. He muttered the password and quietly slipped inside.

He didn't expect his best mate to be up but sure enough the Head Boy Blaise Zabini was wide awake and sitting on one of the Slytherin green armchairs in the Heads common room. Blaise hadn't heard Draco come in and therefore Draco thought it was the perfect opportunity to teach Blaise he should always be aware of his surroundings.

Draco quietly snuck up to the armchair where he could see the back of his best friend's head. Once right behind him he smacked Blaise on the back of the head. The surprise of the attack caused the Head Boy to shoot forwards out of his chair. He scrambled to get to his feet and turned around. wand already drawn. Draco didn't look fazed whilst he had a wand shoved in his face, he merely raised one eyebrow at his friend.

"Good evening, Blaise." Draco drawled, the amusement could be heard clearly in his voice. "No need to point that thing in my face, your guard was down." Draco's voice turned serious as he added "I was just reminding you that your guard should never be down." Then to make the air a bit lighter he shrugged and sat on the sofa to the left of where Blaise had been sitting before Draco had rudely interrupted his thoughts.

"You're a bastard you know that right." Blaise told him as he relaxed and put his wand away. He returned to his seat and for a moment silence fell between the two friends. Blaise was still looking into the fire as he addressed the blonde beside him. "What brings you here?"

"Rumours are going around, Blaise. Rumours about you, I don't need to tell you how dangerous that is do I?" Draco asked, his brow furrowing in concern for his fellow Slytherin. Blaise didn't seem concerned, merely smirked although he still did not try and initiate any eye contact.

"Intriguing. So what's being said about me that is so bad?" his voice sounded amused but Draco could see in his eyes that was not what he was feeling. "Has the big bad Slytherin Head Boy been called soft because he refuses to practice the Cruciatus Curse on the first year Muggleborns?" he spat this question out, as if the words were burning his tongue.

Draco resisted the urge to click his tongue at Blaise. He knew Blaise sympathised with the Muggleborns, hell he did too but it was one thing to think it and another to act on it. It was safe to think how sick and disturbing Hogwarts had become, it was not however safe to voice those thoughts out loud. Blaise hadn't said he was pro Muggleborn but he sure as hell had acted like it and Draco knew if he continued then life would start to get very dangerous for Blaise. Since Draco had for some reason decided to befriend him when he was a toddler that meant Draco would get dragged into it and it would get dangerous for him as well. Draco was still a Slytherin and that meant self-preservation was second nature to him.

"Surprisingly no that's not what's going round." Draco said softly, trying to stay calm and not get up and shake Blaise and tell him to be more goddamn careful. "Word is Granger and the Dumb Duo have been gallivanting around the world looking for some things. That is until a couple of days ago when Granger got separated." Draco said this casually as if he wasn't interested in what he was saying. He leaned back in his chair and kept his eye on Blaise for any signs of reactions, so far Blaise was as calm and laid back as ever. "Apparently Potty and crew were going to break into Hogwarts for something but never made it past the Forbidden Forest. Dynamic Duo got away but according to the rumour mill Granger is still in town as they say."

Draco acted as if he hadn't noticed the way Blaise had stiffened ever so slightly and simply remained silent but with an air of casual discussion surrounding him.

"What's that got to do with me?" Blaise asked. Draco pretended he didn't hear the crack in his voice. He was tempted to carry on nonchalantly but the fact Blaise had been keeping a secret from him – a big one at that – pissed him off so he dropped the act.

"You can come out, Granger." Draco said, his voice had a distinctive hard edge to it.

For a few moments Draco thought he had been wrong, everything around him was silent and still. Granger, it appears, was good at hiding but Draco knew his friend. If Blaise hadn't been hiding anything he wouldn't look like a deer caught in headlights right now.

A minute or two passed before Draco heard a slight shuffling coming from the corner that held the stairs which led to the bedrooms. When the frizzy haired, know it all, Muggleborn appeared in what little light the fire gave off Draco sighed. He had hoped he was wrong.

Granger was biting her lip clearly nervous as to what Draco Malfoy, hater of Muggleborns, hater of her was going to do with this information. She clearly expected him to march over to her and drag her out of the safety Blaise had given her and deliver her to Snape. Instead Draco merely gave her a quick once over and turned back to Blaise.

Draco looked at the girl then back to his mate. Draco frowned at Blaise and then let out a groan that he felt summarized his feelings right now. It wasn't enough to satisfy him so he added in a exasperated voice;

"For fuck's sake Blaise, now we're all fucked."
