I woke up to a warm arm wrapped around my waist. I blinked a few times before checking who’s arm it was. Draco. I reached for my phone for the time.
I grumbled to myself and stretched out. I dragged myself out of bed before going and getting ready for a run and workouts.
I changed into a pair of periwinkle blue leggings and a black sports bra. I grabbed my phone and put in my earbuds. I put a soundtrack and stretched out before going outside and running a good mile and a half.
As I was running, thoughts intruded my mind. I wasn’t paying attention when I suddenly bumped into someone.
As I looked up I saw tan skin and untamed messy black hair. I smiled sheepishly and apologized.
“Sorry, wasn’t paying attention to where I was going, and I was-”
“It’s okay, it was my fault. I saw you running, but I was inconsiderate and didn’t step aside.”
I smiled at him and was starting to bid him goodbye when all of a sudden, “Hey, why are you up so early? It’s only, like 5ish”
“I could ask you the same thing”
“Couldn’t sleep. Nightmares.”
“I’m normally up at this hour. I wake up everyday around 5 and do a small run before heading back inside to do a few workouts.”
“So an exercise junkie?”
“Nope. Just trying to maintain my body, not everyone can stay looking like this without exercise. And plus it allows me to not fall back in.”
“Back in what”
I smiled at him curtly,“Anyways, I should continue on my run, I still got a few more miles before I head back in.”
“Oh yeah totally, sorry for stopping you”
I nodded at him, “Bye”
He left and I continued running.
After running my last 2 miles, and doing my workouts. I headed for the showers. It was probably around 5:45 as I headed in.
After getting out and changing into my robes, I went back to the room.
I looked towards the bed and there was Draco. He was still passed out and had now turned over to his side of the bed. I went over and started scrolling through tiktok.
After about 20 minutes, I looked up to see Draco blinking his eyes.
“Oh, good morning sleepyhead” I chirped.
“Huh?” He looked around confused and then sat up.
His hair all disheveled and messy. His voice had considerably deepened. Morning voice. He got up and went to go get himself ready.
After a good half hour, he comes out looking neat. He wore his Slytherin robes and his platinum blonde hair was covering his eyes and he brought his hand to slide it through his hair to pull it back.
He looked very annoyed at me and I shot him a confused face.
He must’ve noticed it because he just said,”You left early”
“I-I’m sorry?” I asked genuinely confused.
"You woke me up when you left. You left the bed cold.”
“Don’t do that again”
“I do it every morning, either get up with me, or deal with it.”
“Uh, o-wait, 5 in the fucking morning?”
“Who and why in their right mind would wake up at that ungodly time?”
“Me, and to workout. Not everyone can stay skinny with no workout”
“I know that.” He scoffed at me and gathered his books.
I looked at the time.
I sighed at got myself up. I then gathered my books before heading downstairs to go to breakfast.
I was about to open the door when I heard a husky voice in my ear.
“Now, now, were you planning on leaving without me?”
I turned around and looked at him straight in his pale eyes,“Yes as a matter of fact, now if you don’t mind, I’m going.”
His jaw clenched and I gulped. I knew that I had to get out of there. Just because I hadn’t talked to him in years does’t mean I don’t know that my ex-best friend had anger issues.
I quickly got out of the room and started heading down the stairs.
As I reached the dining hall, the tables were spotted with a few students from different houses.
I quickly sat at the Slytherin table and pulled out a book from my book bag. “To kill a mockingbird” A muggle book. I piled some eggs and a few pieces of bacon onto my plate. I also prepared my coffee then I then opened my book and started reading.
After a good calm 15 minutes of reading, I felt and heard someone sit next to me. I glanced to the side and saw Draco. I sighed quietly before looking at my plate to find that there was no more food.
I turned to look around and I spotted the crepes. I smirked to myself before I saw Draco grab my plate and take it away.
"Hey! Give it back. I’m still hungry.”
I sighed in defeat after a minute of trying to win back my plate and my eyes widened when I saw my plate appear back in front of me with some crepes. I looked at Draco and he smirked. I glared at him before I said,“Thank you.”
I cut a piece before turning back to my book.
“No thank you kiss?”
I whipped my head to find a smirking Draco and he laughed.
“Ha ha, very funny. A real comedian you are”
I turned back to my book and continued reading.
