always here ~ Draco Malfoy imagine
requested - no
You knew something was wrong.
Whenever you walked into the great hall for a meal, he would walk out. Whenever you went to sit next to him in Potions, he’d get up and sit next to someone else.
You had been dating Draco for 3 years, and besides him being so rude to Potter, you had never seen this sort of behaviour from him. You were worried, and you wanted to find out what was going on with him, but whenever you went near him, he would always go the other way.
You were on your way to class, walking past the bathroom when you heard it. The sound of muffled cries and sniffles. You turned the corner of the bathroom spotting Draco standing in front of the bathroom sink, sobbing. You took a couple of steps forward without him noticing your presence. Finally you got a sight of Draco’s face, and it broke you heart. Your favourite pair of, once grey eyes were now red and bloodshot, and he was looking paler than usual with the dark circles plastered under his eyes.
“Draco?” It came out more like a question than a calling. Draco turned around, quickly wiping his eyes as if it would make the river of tears go away. “Y-y/n w-what are you doing here?” His voice quivering with every breath he took. You took a couple more steps forward so you were less than an arms length from the love of your life. You placed your hand on his upper arm, “Baby, what’s wrong? Why have you been ignoring me?” You questioned softy, hoping not to anger him.
When you placed your hand on his arm, he broke down his barriers, collapsing into your open arms, letting his tears flow once again. He sobbed, and the sniffled, and then cried again. All you could do was hold him, slowly rocking him back and forth, like what you used to do to your baby brother when he cried. You threaded your fingers through his bleach blonde hair, whispering the same words over and over again into his right ear “it’s okay baby, it’s going to be okay” you spoke, breaking on the inside at the sight of his laying there.
“baby please tell me what’s wrong” you cried, you were hurting, you needed to know what was wrong. “You’ll leave” Draco cried, tucking his head further into your neck. “I won’t Draco, it’s you and I baby, just you and me” you begged, pleading him to answer the only question circling your mind. Slowly Draco began to roll the left sleeve of his school shirt up, revealing a mark that was all too familiar. You carefully rubbed your thumb over the black ink that was marked into his delicate skin.
Draco began to cry again, looking into your y/e/c eyes, “please don’t leave, please stay” he begged, gripping onto you as if it would all disappear. You ran your fingers through his hair again, placing a kiss on the top of his head “I’m always here baby” you said, holding onto him as tight as you could. “Always” you softly spoke into the top of his head, kissing it again.
