Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 6.7It was mid-April, when the weather was getting warmer but still demanded that everyone wear long-sleeved shirts or pullovers, and the air murdered the nose with the sickening scent of grass and flowers accompanied by an overwhelming cloud of pollen.

When the only thing to look forward to was Cass’s birthday.Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 6.7 by froggy21997
This year Cass and her twin sister, Kristina, were finally turning seventeen years old. To honor this occasion, I had actually gotten gifts for both of them; usually I just gave Cass a hug or rosin and wished Kristina a happy birthday if we happened to see each other. But even more unusual was that I had decided to buy a gift for their unofficial ‘triplet’, Malfoy, because we were actually on good terms with each other after the December trip to Rome with the quartet— or, at least, we were on good enough terms for a birthday gift to not be completely<

The three of us easily made the place our home.Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 6.6 by froggy21997
Barely a week later, the Headmaster notified us of two more new occupants, both of whom were from Ravenclaw.

Wednesday, Christmas, conveniently fell on a practice day, so he thought that it would be a good idea to have us perform some carols for the guests and parishioners inside the Church of St. Valentine during the evening celebration. He gave us the sheet music and told us to do our best at sight-reading it.Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 6.5 by froggy21997
“This is good practice for the wedding,” he insisted. “It’s your first time performing in here, so you’ll get a feel for the acoustics, which are very live.” He snapped his fingers and the noise echoed throughout the room. “Plus you’ll be constantly on your toes with impromptu requests. That’ll be useful practice in the case something happens; for example, if you have to cut a piece short or make it longer to accommodate for the pace of the procession.”
Practicality aside, I reveled in the experience; I had never gott
