She felt him stiffen against her, and she worried for a moment that maybe he didn't feel the same as she did now, as it had been almost 3 weeks since they had kissed last. Her thoughts of feeling comfort had faded and they had just stopped kissing and cuddling and taken on more of a friendship platform. She thought it was natural to have an attachment to him but it was more then just an attachments, her heart always sped up and her thoughts were some what incoherent when he was around, by the time she had realised this however it was too late, they were just friends. She couldn't have known that the whole time he felt exactly the same, wanting the same things but to afraid to act on it.
A soft hand touched her face and even softer lips crashed against hers. It felt like nothing she had felt before. They had kissed before but this was something more, there was something powerful behind it. Their lips moulded together perfectly and she couldn't suppress the small moan that was created at the back of her throat. All thoughts of the abusive kiss she had earned earlier in the night faded and were replaced by Draco's soft sweet kiss. When they separated, they silently looked at each other, Draco's hand still holding her face
"I've wanted to do that for the last 2 weeks" he whispered
"Then why didn't you?" she asked, genuinely curious
"Because I didn't think you wanted it, your whole body language changed around me, I thought you wanted to be friends and I respected your wishes. It's why I haven't tried to kiss you again since that night on the lounge" as he was speaking she had started to smile
"I thought exactly the same thing, I thought you wanted us to be friends" she smirked at him. He looked seriously over at her and the smirk slowly faded from her face
"I think I may love you", he whispered so quietly she didn't hear him
"What was that?"
"I love you Granger" her face broke out into a huge grin that spread across her whole face "You don't have to say it to, but I thought you would want to know"
She nestled her head into his chest and inhaled his smell which was distinctly Draco
"I love you to" his arms wrapped around her waist and held her against him.
"I'll protect you", he whispered into her hair. She didn't reply but simply nodded against his chest
