Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 7.13Will found me at the top of the Astronomy tower. It felt so normal for the two of us to be alone up here that it made me sad to think that it would be over so soon.Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 7.13 by froggy21997
“Two more days,” Will said quietly as we watched a dark winged horse fly in circles, followed by a smaller, more skittish one. It must have been a baby, still learning how to fly. “And then we’ll never come back.”
“Yeah,” I whispered. The baby Thestral dropped a few feet and gave a tiny shriek, but the parent caught it and nudged it back into the air.
“And in a couple months we’ll be at uni in the States. That’ll be an entirely different world from this, won’t it?”
I did not know if Will was scared, but I knew I was. Neither of us had been to the U.S. before— though Will said he had visited Canada once with his parents. I did not really want to be alone among so many strangers. “I wish we were going to the same school…” Oh no,

“A-and?!” I felt my face become even hotter than it already was. I avoided Junie’s excited, almost hungry stare. Maybe I can pretend… “What do you mean ‘and’?”
“What happened next! No story ends with just ‘I love you too’! How did you end up sleeping over—” Junie gasped and she looked furtively about the Common Room to make sure nobody was listening in. Then she whispered urgently, “Cindy, you didn’t—?”
“No,” I cut her off. “We didn’t.” But…
“Cindy,” Junie demanded, “what aren’t you telling me?”
“Wh—” How does she know?
“You always bite your lip when you’re hiding something. Now tell me!”
Damn, I can’t keep any secrets from her… “Well… er… maybe a shirt or two came off…”
“Both of you?
