Chapter EIGHT Quote of the Day:
"I want us to talk some more about exactly what we're going to do tonight.” She narrowed her eyes at him. “And you’re going to treat me like an intelligent business partner. I don’t want to hear that you’ll explain everything to me later. There’s been enough of that between us.”
“You’re right,” he said.
Something about his voice made her wonder if he wasn’t only talking about what had happened between them that night. Perhaps he was referring to their shared past, too. In the last year, she’d sometimes wondered what would have happened if she’d insisted on that sort of treatment much earlier in their relationship. Maybe they would have actually had one. Maybe she’d been more dazzled by Malfoy money and fame than she’d realized or admitted, but in the opposite way than had been true for all the women flitting through Draco’s life since he was about thirteen years old. She had been so determined not to give in to the lure of the Malfoy name that it had been almost as bad as if she’d let him set her up as his official mistress. She could never forget who he was, and she had come to realization that this meant he had never understood who she was. They had never really had the chance to know each other.
Maybe if she’d demanded more from Draco, he would have given it to her.
As the unintended Captain of the most despised Auror squad, can Draco Malfoy lead his ragtag band of Slytherins through Death Eater attacks and threats from the Ministry? Definitely not. At least, not without the help of his reluctant Lieutenant: Ginny Weasley. Inconveniently, the last person he'd ever ask. Completely written, updates Thursdays.Category: Works in Progress
