Pansy sat on her stately dressing table, running her ruby encrusted brush through her thick, dark hair. It fell about her shoulders in waves, it shone and gleamed, and yet she kept brushing, staring into her own eyes in the mirror, trying to think properly.|
It had been a few days since Draco had told her. It hadn't come as a surprise, and yet still she felt there was something he had yet to admitt. Something big.
No one knew Draco as well as Pansy. He was more of a brother to her than a friend. They had done nearly everything together since their first year of Hogwarts. He understood what it was like to crave sensible company. Millicent, Crabbe and Goyle were hardly the most stimulating friends in the world. She loved their discussions they would have late at night. They would bitch, moan, dream, and laugh together.
They hadn't been doing that so recently. Draco would keep dissapearing, and he wouldn't say where, and he would return, an uncomfortable look in his eyes... he was unsure of something. Pansy knew it - she could see it in his face. Nothing got past her when it came to Draco.
Could it be... he had met some one? A pang of jealousy just touched Pansy's heart. Not because she wanted to be that person - she laughed the thought off. Because it had only ever been her. She and Draco had always been best friends. It was always each other they would turn to if they needed it... it was just Draco and Pansy. That was just how it was. She didn't want some other man intruding on her best friends life, taking him away from her. She couldn't bare it if she and Draco drifted apart...
She bit down on her lip, hard, and set her brush down. Running her fingers anxiously through her hair, she stood up, trying to brush the thoughts away.
She was sure she would get to the bottom of this soon. She loved Draco like a brother, she wanted to know what it was that was bothering him.
And she would.
Wearily, Pansy exited her dorm, and trudged downstairs for Transfiguration, thoughts of handsome, dark strangers stealing her best friend away plauging her thoughts.
