I CHOSE YOU

NINE-OVER


I cheated on him, I cheated on Cormac. He’s a nice guy. What am I supposed to do? I have to tell him.

Astoria approached me while I sat in the common room thinking of what to do next.

“Hey, Kyra,” she hesitated. “I don’t know how to tell you this. I’m really sorry, I was- I was just coming back from helping the house-elves a few days ago and I heard moaning. I went to go see what it was and I saw Cormac and lavender shagging in the halls. He must’ve seen me passing because he tried to hit on me yesterday.” her lip pouted as she tried to suppress a tear.

“Astoria it’s alright, don’t cry. I’m not mad, it wasn’t your fault.”

“Gosh this is so embarrassing,” She waved her hand goodbye and walked away sniffling as she went.


“You got busy last night didn’t you?” Terence asked Draco.

“What are you talking about Higgs?”

“I saw your clothes at the black lake, didn’t take you as a sex on the beach type of guy.”

“Just went on a late-night swim.”

Alyssa’s owl swooped in the great hall and dropped a letter in front of me.

‘Kyra, I need money, fast. Please I’ll pay you as soon as I get back but I don’t have any access to Gringotts. Reply to me as fast as you can. ’

“What’s it say?” Adrian asked.

“Alyssa has a money problem, she seems like she’s in trouble.”

“Lemme see,” Terence said before snatching the note from my hands.

“She doesn’t even tell you how much. Is it even legal for us to send money?”

“She sounds like she needs it badly, I can try to apparate us there.”

“You’re all a bunch of idiots, with the specialty of our families they won’t go through our mail. They’ll only go through half-bloods and filthy mudbloods,” Draco interrupted.

“Stop saying that word, it’s rude,” I hit Draco in the head with Alyssa’s letter.

“You better not be a blood traitor.”

“I’m not a blood traitor but you don’t have to be rude, just say muggle-borns.”

“Sounds like a blood traitor to me.”

I was given a peck on the cheek by Cormac. ” I missed you,” he said.

“We gotta talk about something, In private.”

I brought him out of the great hall into a private corridor.

“What did you need to talk about?”

“I- I know you cheated, I know you flirted with Astoria. I’m not mad but- I cheated too. and I feel terrible I’m so sorry.”

“So you’re not mad at me, like at all?”

“No I’m not but I’m really sorry, I feel awful and I was thinking about you this whole morning.”

“It’s alright, it wasn’t really working out,” he said before giving me a kiss on the cheek and leaving.

That was easier than expected.


“Terence, sorry I couldn’t thank you earlier for taking care of Cyprus.”

“It’s no biggie she seems to like willow.” He wrapped his arm around my shoulder, Shall we go on a walk?”

He wasn’t really asking but I wasn’t an order. “Sure. What did you wanna talk about?”

“Well I was looking more into that news article and I realized that this,” he pulled out his knife that he hid on his calf. “Won’t protect us. Over 15 of them were seen, those were the only ones reported. They’re after me and this small knife won’t hold them back.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t know there were so many, I can start carrying one.”

“Having two knives won’t help,” he snapped, taking his arm off my shoulder. ” I’m sorry Kyra, I didn’t mean to come off like that.”

“No, it’s alright. It was dumb of me to think it would. We can go to Diagon alley and try to buy some weapons.”

“They won’t sell to minors, let alone Hogwarts students.”

“Black market? I could learn some spells.”

“How would we get access to the black market? The only spells that can harm a werewolf are dark magic, Kyra. That will rot your soul.”

“I’ll figure the black market stuff out, but I don’t care if my soul rots. If you’re safe it’s fine, I promised you. We spent our whole childhood promising each other that we will keep each other safe. So if it rots my soul it’s fine, I don’t care. I’m rich, I’ll find a way out of it.”

“Merlin you’re careless.”

“That’s why you love me.”

“Did you actually like Cormac?”

“Umm, I’m not really sure. He’s a good guy but I didn’t really know much about him.”

“Good to know.”

“What? Are you gonna plan his death?”

“You’ll never know.”

“Very funny, what’s our plan for the break anyways. It’s coming up in a few weeks.”

“I don’t know yet, miles broke ups with his girlfriend recently so he might be going alone. We could do it the muggle way with some magic.” He conjured a blanket and set it down on the grass, setting his bag down before he sat. I took a seat across from him.

“Ooh we should do it the muggle way, I heard they have like a house on wheels.”

“You mean a trailer? Malfoy will think we’re blood traitors won’t he.” He smirked.

“That’s not the worst thing he could think of us.”

I plopped a piece of candy into my mouth. ” I want to learn how to drive, I don’t wanna cast a spell for it. I wanna learn.”

“Why are you telling me that, you act like I know how to drive.”

“What if I ran somebody over, that would be pretty funny.”

“You’re so weird,” he said while pulling out a cigarette. “How are you gonna access the black market?”

“I’ll see if I have any silver knives, but if I don’t, I’ll talk to my father.”

“Don’t talk to your father on my account.”

“I’ll figure it out, but I might not be able to get them in time. Could we make any?”

“We might, we could use silver butter knives and sharpen them. Dip them in some wolfsbane,” he said, taking another hit of his cigar.

“But Fenrir’s werewolves are different from regular ones. They can turn on command, like an animagus. Wolfsbane won’t stop them.”

“You’re right, I’ll research them.”

“They’re not gonna have anything about it, there are no records of the werewolf hybrids that your father created.”

“He’s not a father, he’s a sperm donor. He’s not family, never will be.


“Did you hear about the twins getting suspended?” Pucey asked as we sat in the Slytherin common room.

“What did the weasel bees do this time?” Draco asked.

“They put liquid lust in their edibles,” Miles chuckled.

That makes a tad bit more sense. I shot a glance at Draco and his jaw was tense.

“Draco come with me to check on Cyprus. ″ He rolled his eyes before getting up and joining me in my dorm.

“What?”

“I broke up with Cormac.”

“Okay? That has nothing to do with me.”

“Why are you so mad?”

“It’s nothing.”

“What is it?”

“It’s nothing. Just shut up.”

“You’re being a dick.”

“Did yesterday not mean anything? Was I just used to getting you off? ”

“What? We were both on that lust edible. I broke up with Cormac. I just thought you should have known.”

“Why did you break up with him? If you broke up with him for me that was a stupid decision.”

“I broke up with him because I cheated,”

“It wasn’t your fault, there was a lust potion in them.”

“That doesn’t matter, I still cheated.”

“So it’s my fault?”

“What are you talking about? Draco I had fun last night, maybe the most fun in a while. I don’t regret spending it with you, I regret sleeping with you.”

He turned to leave but I grabbed his wrist. “Don’t leave. I don’t want to be alone.”

He removed my wrist and slammed the door.

I loved being with draco, he brought out the best and worst from me. He made me feel.

I grabbed a small box from under my bed, opening it with my wand. It revealed stacks of galleons. I put a good portion in a pouch and grabbed an envelope.

‘This should be a good supply, a large amount of money. If you need help tell me. Please be safe, and at least tell me where you are.’ is what I wrote on the envelope. I handed my owl the galleons and envelope, sending him off to find Alyssa.

I picked up Cyprus and fed her a meal when the door busted open.

“Sleepover!” Terence shouted, hitting me in the face with a pillow.

“What? We literally had one a few days ago.”

“Yeah, that’s the point.” He sat down on my bed poking at my bed. “Kyra you really shouldn’t eat on the bed, look at all these crumbs. You live like a pig.”

“Fuck you.”
