Malfoy, Draco Malfoy

Waking Up Cold (D.M)

Draco’s POV

After changing, I went to bed.

“Turn off the lights before you go to bed” I said to Kayla, who I heard saw as I was going to bed.

I fell asleep rather quickly. I woke up around 10:50 because of the nightmares.

The nightmares. The one that haunted my sleep every night. The ones that made me wake up in sweats, or screaming. I was trying to go back to sleep when I saw a dark figure open the door room and climb into the bed. The mysterious thing then put a pillow down and covered itself.

I wagered whether to speak or not. My impulsiveness won, “Who the hell is that”

“It’s just me Draco.” I registered the voice as Kayla’s. I calmed down a bit.


She shuffled around and I could see the whites of her eyes, but couldn’t see the dark brown eyes that I loved.

After I saw that she was completely asleep, I wrapped my arms around her and I pulled her closer to me. I smiled and sighed deeply.

Peppermint, Cherry blossoms, and baked goods.

After a while, i felt sleep slowly creep up on me.

I was passed out when my eyes were slowly opening to an empty bed and room. It was cold. I rolled around trying to get warm when i saw the small mountain of blankets Kayla had left, I quickly grabbed them and wrapped them around me attempting to get warm again.

I saw Kayla walk out of the bathroom changed and with her hair up in a ponytail.

I sighed and snuggled more into the blankets and closed my eyes.

I woke up and immediately heard,” Good morning sleepyhead!”

I grumbled to myself, then got up I was a tad bit confused then headed to the bathroom.

A good 30 minutes passed before I headed out of the bathroom. I saw Kayla still in the same place as when i went in.

I ran a hand threw my hair to pull it back.

I threw her a dirty look as she looked at me walk around and gather my thing.

She then looked confused and I sighed in annoyance. Did she really think that se could get away for leaving me cold, awake, at like 5 in the morning. No, she can’t.

"You left early”

“I-I’m sorry?” She said, it sounded more like a question, like she was genuinely confused.

"You woke me up when you left. You left the bed cold.” I replied.

“Uh, okay.”

“Don’t do that again”

“I do it every morning, either get up with me, or deal with it.” Fine, I’ll get up with her. It’s hard to sleep in a fucking King bed with no one else. especially when the other person won’t even

“What time”


“Uh, o-wait, 5 in the fucking morning?” Who the hell wakes up at that time? Especially with winter coming soon. We live in the freaking UK, not California.


“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.” Hell, does she think of me as an idiot? I’m top of my class. Along with that mud blood, Hermione.

I finished gathering my things before heading down. I saw a small figure about to open the door and I walked over.

“Now, now, were you planning on leaving without me?”

She turned around and looked at me straight in my eyes. Dark chocolate brown. small flecks of lighter and darker shades around her pupil. Black flecks too. ,“Yes as a matter of fact, now if you don’t mind, I’m going.”

I stopped paying as much to her eyes directly and clenched my jaw. Her face faltered for a moment and she scurried out the door as I turned around.

After about 10 minutes, I left.

She was already at the bottom of the stairs when I started going down.

I started walking toward the Slytherin table and spotted Kayla with a book.

“To Kill a Mockingbird”

I knew the book. It was a muggle one. I had read it when I was in 6th year. I read it in secret mainly because I knew that my father wouldn’t have approved of it.

I sat an piled my plate with food and looked over at Kayla. she was eyeing the crepes.

I grabbed her plate, ignoring her cries of protests. After she stopped, I piled some on her plate and placed it in front of her. I smirked to myself as I saw her run and mumble, “Thank you”

“No thank you kiss?”

She turned to looked at me, her eyes wide and her mouth slightly opened.

I chuckled at the sight, “Ha ha, very funny. A real comedian you are”

I smirked and went back to eating.

I turned around and saw Potter walking in. He walked over to the Gryffindor table and glanced over a few times. I was confused and just decided to ignore it. I went back to eating.
