The Song Playing In My Heart


It was another year at Hogwarts. Everything was magical at first, but now I don’t think it’s that exciting anymore.

I think the only thing here good enough to keep me interested was Potions. Yes, Snape was an arse but I liked the class.

My life here wasn’t easy. It was already bad that I’m a Slytherin, but I was also a target of insults for being a half-blood. I got hate from my own house, how ironic.

At least I had a friend, I didn’t need anyone else. And for my luck, she was the best friend I could’ve asked for.

The Hogwarts Express was full and I had the unfortunate of finding the worst person in my house. I tried to hide but obviously, his little dog had to sell me out.

“Edevane, how lovely.” He said with a bit of sarcasm in his voice. “Hiding from me, are we?” He just said those two sentences and I was already angry. “Wouldn’t have to hide if you weren’t such a jerk.” I answered.

“Now, now. Let’s not be rude on the first day. Come, sit with us.” Ugh, as if. “There’s no way I’m going to sit with you bloody gits.” I regretted it on the moment those words left my mouth. “Wrong answer, Edevane.” He made a gesture to the two boys behind him. “Have you learned nothing from the past years? I always get what I want.”

“I would, too, if I had my father buying everything and everyone. Now, I don’t want to sit with you and your stupid gang, Malfoy. Leave me alone.” The two boys grabbed my hands and a girl brought my bag to their compartment.

I sat in front of him and looked at the window with an angry expression on my face. Draco’s eyes turned to me and I noticed a smirk through the corner of my eye. He analyzed my face and the way I was dressed. I was wearing a blue crop top and skirt. I tried to ignore them but they didn’t stop talking. Draco was surprisingly quiet.

The train finally stopped and we got out to the station. Malfoy spotted someone a little further ahead and started walking faster. Crabbe and Goyle followed him, as always, and Pansy forced me to go with them, too.

“I’m surprised the Ministry’s still letting you walk around free, Potter.” Here we go again. “Better enjoy it while you can. I expect there’s a cell in Azkaban with your name on it.” Harry went mad and he was ready to punch Malfoy in the face, something I would’ve loved to see, but Ron stopped him. Draco adjusted the suit and kept walking. I followed behind him with my head down. “What’d I tell you? A complete nutter.”

“Just stay away from me!” Harry yelled. I felt sorry for him and I wanted to apologize but Pansy made me walk. I looked at them and ran to Draco. “Don’t be so mean, Malfoy.” I lightly punched his arm. “He deserves it.” I’m sorry, WHAT?! ’He deserves it’?! “What did he do to deserve that?! He saved us from Voldemort so many times, we should be thanking him!”

He pushed me against the nearest wall and trapped me with his arm. “Listen, Edevane, you don’t get to talk to me like that. And I do whatever I want with Potter, whether you like it or not.” I’d never seen him like that. I was terrified and Pansy was laughing at me. Draco seemed to notice and told her to shut up.

“I’m not going to follow you anymore, Malfoy.” I said when he finally let me have space. “Do as you wish.” I hate that boy so much. I left the station and went to the carriages, hoping I wasn’t too late.
