(Draco x reader)
Summary: Draco and reader are paired together in potions, and Draco completely messes with her the entire lesson.
I rushed down to the dungeons adjusting the heavy bag strap on my shoulder and clutching a stack of books, knowing that I was already late for potions.
Unfortunately, as I turned the corner, I ran into none other than Draco Malfoy, sending my books in all directions across the floor.
“Well, hello there L/N.”
I groaned and quickly started picking up my books from the floor. I’d already run into him three times this morning, and I couldn’t say that it was very enjoyable.
“Leave me alone, Draco. We’re late for class.”
“It’s just potions. Boring.” He complained.
“No, not boring. Important.”
Flustered, I pulled the strands of hair out of my face and gathered up my books.
I started heading towards class, however, Draco made this a difficult task by blocking my way, causing me to stop and glare at him.
“What are you doing?” I asked him, running out of patience.
He smirked and opened his mouth to speak, but I cut him off.
“Draco, I don’t have time for this right now, we’re so late.”
I pushed past him and walked into the classroom, hearing him sigh before following me.
As soon as we entered, I was met by Professor’s Snape’s cold glare as I watched his eyes flicker between the two of us.
“Professor Snape, I’m so sorry -”
“The tales of your incompetence do not interest me, Miss L/N.” He drawled coldly.
I heard Draco snigger behind me.
“…or Mister Malfoy,” continued Snape slowly. “Ten points from both your houses.”
“Sit down before the both of you end up in detention.”
I frowned but quickly moved to the closest empty table, which happened to be at the very back of the classroom.
Unfortunately, there were two empty seats so Draco followed me and took a seat right beside me.
Snape turned around and started writing today’s instructions on the blackboard.
I could see Draco smirking out of the corner of my eye and I slapped him on the arm with my copy of Advanced Potion Making.
In return he hit me with his copy and I went to hit him back, but then Snape turned around and the both of us immediately turned back to the front, plastering innocent looks onto our faces whilst hiding our laughter.
He seemed to know that we were messing around but he probably didn’t care enough to do anything about it, because he just instructed everyone to start working.
I glance at the board.
Amortentia. In pairs.
Of course we were making amortentia. I couldn’t believe my luck.
Draco seemed to be happy about it, though I doubted that he had any idea how to brew amortentia, let alone any potion at all.
“Would you look at that, Y/N. You and I will be brewing amortentia together.”
I rolled my eyes at him, but I couldn’t help but smile, just a bit.
We got off to a pretty good start, however brewing the potion mostly consisted of me doing it all by myself whilst Draco commentated stupid things.
We were about two thirds the way through when Snape decided to walk around the classroom and observe how everyone was going.
I was adding in the crushed moonstone when I felt a hand along my thigh. My cheeks flushed red, and I found myself accidentally adding a pinch too many into the mixture.
Draco continued to rest his hand on my inner thigh, and I couldn’t do anything about it because at that exact moment, Snape walked by, causing me to draw in a sharp breath.
The potion started to hiss and sizzle, indicating that we’d completely messed it up. I felt my heart drop. No. Steam was supposed to be rising in spirals from it, not hissing and sputtering.
Draco started laughing at the shocked state on my face, however, Snape didn’t find it funny in the least.
I put down the flask of moonstone powder and subtly shoved Draco’s hand off my leg, hoping that Snape hadn’t realized.
“Mr Malfoy, I’m unaware if you’ve noticed, but your potion doesn’t appear to be rising in spirals of steam, which would mean that you have added too much moonstone powder.”
I shut my eyes. Malfoy stop smirking, you idiot.
“I suggest the two of you clean up this mess…”
“Yes, professor,” I replied quickly.
“… in detention.” he finished.
My mouth fell open, but before I could complain, he turned and walked off.
“Look what you’ve done.” I turned and said to Draco.
“Don’t pretend you’re not looking forward to spending a whole hour with me this afternoon.”
“Shut it, Malfoy.”
“Only for you, princess.”
At that I kicked him under the table, which led to him kicking me back, which then led to us having a full on battle under the table whilst trying to hold back our laughter until the end of class.
