I CHOSE YOU

TWENTY-HIKE


“Everybody up! We said we’d go hiking today!” Terence said, banging two pans together.

“Five more minutes,” Draco groaned, tightening his arms around me. The tent zipper unzipped.

“What are you guys doing?” Miles asked his head sticking into our tent. We immediately pulled away from each other once we realized he was actually inside the tent.

“Uh, it was cold last night.”

“Yeah, it was freezing,” I added.

“And none of you thought to use a warming charm?”

“Nope,” said Draco, taking a sip of water.

“You don’t have to hide your ‘relationship’ I heard and saw you in the forest yesterday.”

“You did?”

“Yeah, I also saw you at the top of the cliff.”

“Did anybody else see?” I asked.

“Not that I know of, but you two should get ready, we’re leaving soon. I’m not going to tell anybody, but I’m not going to cover your asses.”

“Thank you, Miles.” He bowed his head and closed the tent.

“I guess we’re being a little too public.”

“I agree.” He placed a kiss on my lips but before he could deepen it I pulled away.


I grabbed a granola from my bag and tossed it to Adrian.

“God bless you Liner, you’re an angel.” He took a bite of the bar, swinging his arm around Daphne.

One of Alyssa’s hands trailed the trees while the other was intertwined with Blaise. Terence next to me and Draco with the rest of the boys. Pansy and Tracey stayed back because they didn’t pack any hiking shoes.

“You’ve been here before haven’t you Terence?”

“Eh, a few times, before they both went psycho.”

“Did you stay at the campsite?”

“No, we spent most of our time hiking. That was the first time I went to the lake.” He pulled out a cigarette from his back pocket and lit it up, taking a long drag.

“Stop smoking.” I took the cigar from his hand and cast a vanishing spell. The hiking path was full of trees, making us maneuver through them.

“Stop smoking,” he mocked. “You better pay me back.”

“Whatever, you act like you aren’t rich as well.”

“I know I am, it’s just hard to get them.”

“Then don’t do them.”

“Wow, so inspirational.”

“I’m serious Terence, if you want to get married in 40 years you have to be alive and single. And by the looks of it, you’re not making it.”

“What are you talking about?”

“Tracey.”

“She’s not my girlfriend, acquaintances with benefits is a better term. She has feelings, but I’m not quite sure how I feel yet. Sometimes she’s a bit much, like last night. When we kissed she went off for like two hours and forced me to sleep in the trailer.”

“Poor girl.”

“Poor girl? Poor me. She told me she didn’t want to start anything, and now she asks me to be her boyfriend during sex. She wants to have sex all the time, everywhere.”

“Okay, too much info.”

“Oh no, that’s just the beginning. She always has the constant need to give me head, she’s already planning our wedding and future. I don’t like her, but I’m not going to tell her to bug off.”

“Is it because she’s a half-blood?”

“Kyra, I couldn’t give a flying fuck about her blood status. I just don’t like her.”

“Do you think you ever could?”

“No, she’s a beautiful girl, with an okay personality, but I just don’t see myself falling for her.”

“You never have shown much interest in girls, have you, Terence?”

“I’m not gay if that’s what you’re asking. You’ve seen me shag my fair share of girls, I just don’t like any of them.”

“You sound like Draco,” I giggled.

“Oh please, I care about my woman during sex, Draco does not.”

“How do you know?”

“How do you?”

----

My hips lowered even more over his, spreading them further, his strong hands helping my waist rock. His hands gripped around me, my clit grinding against him. My eyes rolling back and my spine arching.

“You’re mine.” Draco hummed, holding onto me tight as he fucked me, his dick stretching me out, slick with arousal.

“Maybe if I punish you it’ll help you remember who you belong to next time.”

His hips bucked into mine, his cock twitching inside me, my fingers pulling at his hair.

His hands dug into my flesh roughly as he tasted my skin, desperate to leave marks. Breathless gasps leaving my lips as I felt him draw into me again.

Pushing my body onto his as he thrust himself deeper, making me handle everything, every inch.

-------------------

“Kyra, are you there?”

“Yeah, sorry just zoned out. Oh, I forgot to ask, did you get your suit yet?”

“No not yet, but there should be my dad’s old suit at the cabin.”

“You’re going to wear it?”

“Yeah, piss on it, stain it. Normal things, you know?”

“No Terence, I really don’t.”

“Anyways, do you have the knives? I haven’t seen them.”

“Yeah, they’re in my bag.” I grabbed the satchel that held the daggers and displayed them in my hands. I gave him a few of the sharp knives and a holster.

“Thank you, Kyra, you’re amazing really.”

“I know I am.”

“What are we going to do for the dance?” he asked, swinging his arm around me.

“Well, we’re going to dance.”

“No shit Sherlock, what are we going to do?”

“What do you mean ‘what are we going to do?’ We’re going to do what we do every year, eat, party, spike the fruit punch.”

“You didn’t even go last year.”

“We’ll do what we did in the third year.”

----

“Move it! She’s gonna kill me!” I shouted pushing the boys out of the way. Stumbling on the fabrics of my dress, I dashed to the astronomy tower. I crashed on one of the seats, giddy I got away from that crazy cat.

The boys entered only a few moments later.

“What did you do this time?” Draco asked, his foot tapping on the wood floor.

“Nothing.”

“Kyra,” Terence said, placing his arm on the desk I was sitting at.

Blaise entered the astronomy tower taking his seat next to me, giggling. Obviously tipsy. “Did you lose that cat, Liner?”

“Yup, did you lose Filch?”

He smiled nodding his head.

“What did you guys do?” Adrian asked.

I looked over at Blaise, and he looked back at me, deciding on whether to tell the boys what we did. He nodded his head silently and let me explain.

“Well, basically me and Blaise spiked the punch at the ball, and Filch caught us. We decided to split up and meet here but while I was running I accidentally stepped on Ms. Norris’s tail. That’s where we are now.”

“You guys had me thinking you committed murder. Where’d you get the alcohol from anyways?” Terence asked.

“From one of the seventh years, I think,” Blaise said, pulling out a small bottle of alcohol.

“Do you have any more left?” Miles asked a smirk on his face. I pulled the small pouch of alcohol the seventh years gave us and placed it on a table. Blaise pulled out his bag as well.

And that was the first time any of us got drunk.

---------

“That was hilarious.”

“Yeah, but then I had 3 weeks of detention.”

“Yeah, but you didn’t even go to detention.”

“Losers go to detention. Why did I not go to the ball last year?” I asked Terence.

“You had another one of those episodes.”

------

I felt as if I was throwing up all my intestines. My cheeks were stained with tears as Alyssa held my hair back. My stomach burned and my lungs felt like they were breaking.

Alyssa would hold me in her arms while I cried, caressing me, making sure I wasn’t dead. She gave me medicine to calm my stomach and asked Miles to carry me into bed, Terence and Draco insisting they should be there.

She hushed them up and made them wait in the common room, but they wouldn’t give up so easily. They asked Blaise to keep her distracted for the night, and he did, he kept her in his dorm for the remainder of the night with ease.

I laid in bed, safe and sound when I heard tapping on my window. I looked over to see paper cranes pecking at the window with white roses surrounding them. With all my strength I got up from my bed, dragging my feet while I headed to the window. The cranes flying through the dorm, sprinkling the roses all over.

I crashed back onto my bed, wrapping myself in the warm comfort of my blanket. A click came from my door and two blond boys entered with snacks in hand.

“No, out, I’m tired,” I said, my face pressed into my pillow.

“You’ve been sleeping for like two weeks.”

“I don’t care, get out.”

“Um, we got your favorites, gummy bears,” Draco threw the bag at me, making Terence smack him in the head. I rolled my eyes and grabbed the bag of candy, tearing the bag and choosing my favorite flavor.

“Look at that, feeling better already,” Terence said, taking a seat on my bed. Draco following seconds after.

I ate a few more before the betrayal of my stomach came back. I darted to the bathroom throwing up everything I ate and more. Terence held my hair back and Draco cleaned the bed and cranes. Putting the roses in a vase.


“We’re here.” Terence’s arms were spread wide, showing that we made it at the top of the mountain. I stood next to him, peering over the edge. There was a large lake beneath us, trees surrounding it.

Draco took a step next to me, peering over the side as well, his fingers brushing against mine.

“Doesn’t that lead back to the campsite?” Blaise asked.

“Yeah, I think so, but I don’t think we can jump from this high.”

Foliage and vegetation surrounded us, sprouting from the trees. Blaise plucked a large purple flower and tucked it in Alyssa’s hair. He placed a kiss on her forehead before wrapping her in his arms.

A small box appeared, levitating in the air, it had Terence’s family crest. He pulled the small box from the air and opened it, breaking the gold wax seal. He stuck his hand in the box and small parchment came from Terence’s hand, he unraveled it, and it wrote.

Did you miss me? I missed you, it’s unfortunate that I’m not able to see you. Maybe next summer, but for now a few visitors will pay for my absence.′

Terence then pulled out a velvet pouch, burning the letter and throwing the box off the cliff. The pouch was red velvet with a gold ribbon securing it shut.

“What’s inside?” Miles asked beside me.

“I don’t know, I haven’t opened it.” He opened the bag and poured the stuff out, revealing golden blonde locks of hair. Terence’s face fell almost instantly.

“Whose is that?” Draco asked.

“It’s my moms.”
