Not So Innocent

Chapter 3

Eliza's pov

It has been a long day of classes. Luckily, I didn't had defence against dark arts today so I didn't had to put up with Draco again. I spent the day pretty much with Daphne, which I loved because it made me feel less lonely.

I was currently sitting in the common room reading one of my books which, let's say, helped a lot with the intrusive thoughts I got. I got so attached to the book I was reading while I was sitting by one of the large windows in the common room. There were only a few other Slytherins around.

Draco's pov

I walked into the common room with my hands in my pockets. I walked towards Blaise and Adrian who were sitting at the sofa near the fire place. As I was walking I immediately noticed Eliza sitting by the window. She looked like she was reading a book. It's strange how I barely noticed her until this year.

"Malfoy, where you been mate?" Adrian asked as I sat down.

"Around," i responded.

"So secretive," said Blaise.

I scoffed in response.

"Anyways, we've been eyeing your partner,” Adrian laughed.

"My who?" I asked.

"Her!" said blaise pointing to Eliza.

For fucks sake.

"Why?" I asked.

"Isn't it obvious?" Blaise laughed.

"She's fucking hot!" Adrian said.

I don't know why but I felt angry and jealous as they spoke about her. Especially, because I know what they were like with girls.

"It's like she came out of nowhere," Blaise said "Surely we would have noticed a girl who looked like that"

Adrian laughed "I have an idea"

"What's your idea?" I asked quickly.

"I'm going to make her come back to my room with me," he laughed slightly "So don't come back to the room until late, alright?"

Blaise laughed "Alright mate"

I just faked a laugh but for some reason I wanted to stop him from trying anything with her. But why?

A few minutes later, I noticed she got up and start walking towards the door.

Blaise and Adrian also noticed this.

"What's your name, gorgeous?" Adrian said as she walked past the sofa.

She looked confused but answered "Eliza"

"Well, well Eliza, my room is that way," he smirked evilly and Blaise laughed. I sat there, anger and jealousy boiling inside of me more and more.

"I'm good, thanks," she smiled and continued walking out, a book in her hands.

"Ohh, mate you got rejected," Blaise laughed hysterically.

"Yeah, we'll see about that," he laughed.

I decided I didn't wanted to stay here anymore with these idiots. I got up and left. Instead of going back to my dorm, I thought I could catch up with Eliza. Don't know why but I did.

Eliza's pov

I quickly walked away from Adrian, Blaise and Draco, annoyed. Why do boys think they can just say stuff like that to girls? It's weird and so disrespectful! I walked down the dungeon corridor in a rush before I heard shoes tapping on the stone floor behind me.


I turned around and saw Draco. I rolled my eyes and continued walking.

"Where do you think you're going?" he said as he walked next to me with a cocky smirk on his face.

"Away from you and your dickhead friends"

Shit, why did you say that?! I'm definitely going to get a mouthful for that one.

"Yeah, sorry about that," he said.

Did he just apologize? Draco Malfoy?

"Was there something you wanted?" I asked confused as to why he was walking with me.

"Nope," he simply said.

"Okay," I said confused.

"I'm bored and was going to go for a walk. Looks like your joining me," he said.

"But you joined me"

"I was actually just walking and happened to catch up with you"



We walked for a few minutes. It was pretty awkward but I kinda just went with it. He didn't say much.

We were walking down one of the main corridors and Harry, Hermione and Ron happened to be standing against one of the walls. When they saw me and who I was with they instantly gave me evils, sending me death stares and confused looks. It angered me that me walking with Draco annoyed them. We were in the same house! It shouldn't come to a surprise. Yes, they do have a problem with Malfoy but what have their arguments got to do with me?

"Those aren't very friendly looks," Draco said as he noticed the stares from them too.

"I'm used to it," I said and looked away from them.

"You are?" he questioned.

"Oh yes," I laughed.

"How come?"

"I used to be friends with them until I was sortedd into Slytherin and they hated me all of a sudden"

"Pathetic excuse to defriend someone"

"I'm over it," I said although didn't know if I was or not.

"Good! You should be!"

"Eliza!" I heard someone calling my name from behind me. I turned around and saw Daphne running towards me.

She gave Draco a confused look but then looked at me.

"I've been looking for you!" she said.

"I'll see you around," Draco said as he turned on his heel and walked away.

Daphne and I watched him going away.

"Why was he talking to you?"

"I'm wondering the same thing"
