The American

Just One Time.


There it was, right before my eyes. My fathers forearm. A forearm that didn’t hold the dark mark. Though, I do wonder what my fathers connection with Voldemort was. There had to be something, right?

There was a sudden knock at the door which drew both of our attention. My father walked to the door to open it, revealing Theo.

“He’s here.” He said. My father nodded and turned to me. “It’s time.”

I stood up and followed my father and Theo out of the study. “Everything will be okay. I promise.” Theo muttered to me.

Did he know?

We made it into the dining room when I saw a tall, cloaked figure sitting at the head of the table. My father gestured for me to go in, alone. So I did.

“Ah, young Laurel. It’s nice to finally.. meet you.” His voice hissed, almost like a snake. “Please, sit.” He said nodding to the chair that was by his side.

I pulled the chair out, and sat down. I was shaking on the inside, I was so nervous, yet I was also so very calm.

“I assume your father has informed you of our.. situation?”

I nodded. I couldn’t find it in myself to use my words. I didn’t know how to address him, how to speak to him.

“Good. Well, let’s get to the bottom of things-”

“Are you going to kill me?” I cut him of, suddenly regretting doing so when his beady, red eyes snapped into my direction, piercing me with every second he stared. “Sorry.” I quickly apologized.

“No.” He said plainly while playing with his wand. “I will not. Though, if you interrupt me again, I may be tempted. If you must know, I am currently trying to figure out a way for you to transfer my powers back to me. You see, I am still a powerful wizard, though I am not as strong as I once was. I cannot kill, but simply wound another. It is.. infuriating.”

“Excuse me,” I began, searching for permission to speak. He nodded for me to continue. “How is it that I ended up with your powers? Why me? Why not I don’t know, Harry Potter? He is the one you sought after.”

“That is.. an excellent question. You see, your mother had made a deal with me once upon a time. Her pregnancy with you was very rough, and for some time, she feared she wouldn’t only lose her life, but lose your as well. I told her that if I ever met my demise that I would let my powers latch on to the infant that was growing within her body. She agreed seeing she had no other option, and on that dreadful day of October 31st, the day you were born, a part of me died when it was sent to you. I was simple messing around when I said this would happen. I was going to let you die. I didn’t think the events that happened would actually happen, but they did, and here we are.. In quite the situation.”

It made sense, it really did, but why did my mother seek him for help? There are so many pieces of the puzzle missing.

“Now, I require that you do not stay in this house as I will be using it as my headquarters. Of course, you will come here when I request that you do, but from this day forward, you will stay at Malfoy Manor. I hear that you and Draco have become quite close.”

I let out a faint laugh.

“At one point, yes.”

“Good, then we shouldn’t have any problems.” He said while standing up. “Now, if you’ll excuse me. I have some.. business to attend to.” He spoke softly. I nodded and he disapparated out of the room.

That was the single most scary, yet thrilling moment of my life. I still have so many questions, but I suppose they’ll have to wait for now.

I exited the dining room only to be greeted by my father and brother.

“So? How’d it go?” Theo asked.

I laughed and shook my head, still in shock that I’m going to have to live with Draco. Maybe I’ll get lucky and will be on a separate wing of the house and won’t ever have to see him, or better yet, he’ll move out.

“For the time being, he requested that I live at Malfoy Manor.” I shrugged, turning my body towards the stairs to give Nana a visit.

“You’re joking..” They said in disbelief. Honestly, I wish I were. It was bad enough I would have to see Draco at school, well avoid him at school, but to be forced to avoid him in his own house will be slightly more tricky.

I turned to my father who had an unreadable expression on his face.

“Laurel, you and Theo go up to your rooms and pack for school, and for your stay at Malfoy Manor.” I paused in my tracks, eyes widening.

“Father, why me?” Theo questioned the man.

“I kept you and your sister separated long enough. You will live there too. I’ll speak to Lucius and Narcissa at once. Now go.”

“What about Nana?” I asked, desperate to see her.

“You will do as you’re told. When finished, you may pay her a brief visit as she needs her rest. I won’t tell you again, go.”

Theo and I both nodded and walked up to our rooms to do as we were told.

We weren’t allowed to use magic away from home. It was whatever, so I spent the next two hours packing everything from clothes, hygiene items, make up, and sex toys because let’s face it, unless I find a new fuck buddy at school this year, I’m going to need them to get me through the year.

“What the fuck is that?” Theo interrupted my packing as I was putting my toys in my trunk.

“I uh, you saw nothing.”

He scrunched up his face, displeased with what he just witnessed. “You shove that up your crotch?” He asked referring to the dildo I had. I laughed. “That must hurt.”

“Nah, Draco was bigger.” I spoke without realizing what I just said.

“I always knew that bloke had a big dick. He sure carries himself like he does. You’d think Pansy would be a hell of a lot nicer.”

Am I really talking about Draco’s dick with my brother? Fuck. I guess I am.

“Wait, Pansy? Are they..?”

He nodded his head. I can’t really say I’m surprised though. They literally deserve each other.

“Unfortunately. I don’t think he really wants to be to be honest with you, I think it’s just so he has a definite fuck buddy, and because he doesn’t like the idea of being alone. Most don’t know this because he’s so closed off, but he’s got quite a soft side.”

“Yeah, he sure showed me his soft side when he was calling me horrible names because I kept one small thing from him. Super softy if you ask me.” I rolled my eyes.

“Come on. We better get going. Before long Nana will have to take her medication and she’ll be asleep for the night.” He informed me. “I’ll take your things to the floo.” He said. I nodded at him and went to visit Nana.

When I entered her room, it felt like all of the life had been sucked out. All of her once happy and healthy plants were dying. Dying along with her. It broke my heart.

“Laurel? Is that you?” She asked. “Yes.” I said softly stepping towards her.

“H-How was your stay with your friends?” She asked between coughs. “It went well. How are you feeling?”

“Oh you know.. I’m afraid I don’t have much longer dear.”

I let out a sigh. “I know.”

“I’m sorry that I didn’t try to find you sooner that way we could have had more time together than just a couple of months.” She said. “It’s alright. Better late than never.” I smiled.

I sat there for a few minutes, discussing things with her before Theo knocked on the door telling me it was time to go. I gave her a kiss on the forehead as did Theo and we went to the floo and went to Malfoy Manor.

Arriving, I stepped out of the fireplace and looked around the room I was in. The room I had sex with Draco in. The memories began to set in. The desire.

Fuck, this was going to be harder than I thought.

We walked out of the room and downstairs to see Lucius and Narcissa downstairs. Narcissa walked up to me in a hurry and gave me a hug similar to the one Theo gave me just earlier. Lucius on the other hand just stood there and watch me, displeased that I was in his presence.

They sat the both of us down and laid down some ground rules for us, I mean we were going to be living with them under their roof for a little while, so it’s only fair for them to have rules.

They didn’t ask much, just that we stay out of trouble at school, and stay out of Lucius way, and don’t go snooping. Obvious things.

I looked to the clock and realized it was getting pretty late. I had completely forgotten about the time change between California and England. It was nearly midnight. Theo and I both said our goodnights to the Malfoy’s and went upstairs for bed.

I felt disgusting seeing as I haven’t showered all day, especially since I had sex just this morning. I made it to the room I would be staying in and went straight for the shower.

I let the hot water pour down on my body as I exfoliated every inch of my skin with soap. I loved this shower don’t get me wrong. It beats the showers at Hogwarts for sure, but Draco’s was better. I desperately wanted to sneak into his room and use his.

The showerhead in mine was a standard one that didn’t dethatch from the wall oppose to the one in his. Not to mention he had a seat in his. I could sit in there all day and use that showerhead for something other than cleaning my body that’s for sure.

Just as I turned the water off, I heard knocking at the bedroom door. If I had to guess, it was Narcissa, or Theo. Lucius wouldn’t dare to disturb me at this hour, and Draco wasn’t home.

I quickly dried my hair off to prevent dripping and wrapped my towel around my body and headed towards the door to open it.

“Sorry, I was in the.. Draco? What are you doing here?” I said to the tall, pale boy standing directly in front of me wearing dress pants and a white button up. He looked nervous.

“Shit, sorry. I thought this was where Nott was staying.”

“I’m Nott.” I reminded him. Technecially, yes, I was a Nott. My whole life I’ve gone by Jennings, but the last few hours, especially having that discussion with my father, I’ve decided that I should go by Nott.

“No, you’re Jennings.” He tried to correct me. I rolled my eyes turning around walking towards my bag to grab clothes. I was so annoyed with his presence already that I didn’t even both to shut the door behind me, realizing he followed me. “So, you’re staying here for a while?” He asked.

“Yup.” I said.

“Looks like we can’t avoid each other any longer then.” He spoke. I felt his breath on the back of my neck. Goosebumps emerged on my skin when I felt the back of his fingers trickle down the back of my arm.

Stop. Stop. Stop.

“I’m.. sorry.” He whispered. His lips on my ear lobe.

Fuck, he was so seductive.

I turned around to face him with a scowl on mine when I noticed his hair was different. He had cut it, it looked good.

Fuck, he was sexy.

No, Laurel. Get your mind out of the gutter.

“What do you think you’re doing? Do you really think that just because we are sharing a house together that we can just reconvene everything?”

He paused, taken aback by my words. Did he really expect me to just give in?

“Come on, Lo. It’s just one night, don’t tell me you don’t want this.” He growled with a grin on his lips. “That you didn’t miss this.” He rubbed his hard length against my thigh.

Don’t do it.

“You’re back together with Pansy. I’m not going to be your little toy for whenever she pisses you off or annoys you.” I snapped.

“Laurel, what the hell are you talking about? I’m not back together with- well, I mean she and I have hooked up quite a bit over the bre-”

I covered my ears and started making noises like a child being told something they don’t want to hear, but that’s just it. I didn’t want to hear about him hooking up with her. It brings images to my head that I don’t want to see. Him sharing the most intimate moments that he and I shared. Sure, she had him first, but when I was with him, there was no one else.

Annoyed with my immature behavior, he grabbed me and smashed his lips against mine. My body stilled not sure how to react.

Fucking hell.

Don’t stop.


Stop it.


I pushed him off of me before things could escalate further. I hated that my body ached for him, longed for him to touch me. To make each other feel good. In comparison, Clayton was nothing compared to Draco.

“Draco, Clayton and I are back together..” I said quietly, out of breath from the lustful kiss.

He didn’t say anything, just stood there in disbelief. He was rejected, and Draco Malfoy doesn’t do rejection.

He stormed away from me, slamming the door as he made his exit.

I let out a breath, irritated.

I lied to him, again.

I wanted to chase after him and tell him I lied.

I wanted to throw him on the bed and remove his pants and suck on his large cock while I rode my pussy against his face, but I couldn’t. It wasn’t right, not when I just had sex with Clayton.

This was going to be so hard, and now I was turned on. I turned back to my bag grabbing one of the small toys out of it and laid on my bed naked and spread my legs before inserting the toy inside of me, rubbing it vigorously against my wet clit.

Fuck, Draco.” I moaned to myself as I felt myself reach my climax.

How is it that the slightest movement from him can get my body so worked up?

After my orgasm I was so tired that I didn’t even bother getting dressed, leaving me to pass out naked across the soft mattress and blankets.

A/N Sorry this chapter sucked (I’m going to say that every time I update and I’m not confident in my work)

Anyways, the next chapter might be a little confusing. It’s not a flashback, but it takes place during the events of Laurel and Theo coming to the Malfoys from someone else POV.

Hope you all enjoy, don’t forget to vote!
