Silent World (Draco Malfoy x Reader)
Um, I have a request for a one-shot on your Draco book, if it’s ok. Maybe a deaf reader and she only speaks sign language, so Draco learns it to be able to talk to her, or she teaches him? - KaylaBignall
Warnings: Half-assed writing (sorry), Cheesiness (I’ve spent my holiday watching crappy rom-coms)
( This story is a lot like the last about the mute reader so excuse any reoccurring ideas in this one.)
(Author’s Note: I appreciate all the requests but I ’m starting
to stress a bit. I will do all the requests I have gotten up until now
but I wont take any more that come after this chapter until I’m done
with the one’s I’ve got. Anyway I love writing these but I’ve just got
way to many to write and I can’t write all the time anyway.)
(I just realised that I’m such a mess haha)
She is sitting at the back of the library again, a textbook open in
front of her, her eyes skimming the contents of the page. Sun is pouring
in from the nearby window, highlighting once again, just how pretty she
I sigh quite loudly, questioning whether I should go talk to her but
instantly realising I can’t, because her world is silent and my words
can’t reach her, because (Y/N) (Y/L/N) was unlucky enough to lose her
hearing to a curse, a curse that was fired by a deatheater, who even after, the dark lord’s retreat into hiding, continued to force his ideas onto society.
As all this courses through my mind, I fail to remember that I’m stood in the middle of the entrance to the library.
“Do you plan to stand there all day, Malfoy?”
“Shut up, Granger,” I snap back, grudgingly shuffling out of the girls way, but before she scurries away I remember. “Wait, Granger, you know sign, right?”
“What’s it to you?” She grunts and I sigh.
“Can you teach me?"I ask, avoiding eye contact with her.
"Why do you want to learn sign language,"She scoffs, my eyes drift to (Y/N) again, and her eyes widen into a look of shock. ”No way! Not happening, Malfoy! (Y/N) is a dear friend, I’m not setting her up with the likes of… you. You’ll just hurt her, no way!“
"I won’t hurt her!,"I hiss loudly , making people turn and stare.
"Listen, I like her,” I say in a whisper and she scoffs again.
“Have you even had a conversation with her?”
“ Why do you think I want to learn sign?” I snap and she rolls her eyes.
“Please, I promise never to hurt her, I just want to be able to talk to her,” I plead and she sighs.
“Did you just say please?” She asks in surprise “I’ve never heard you say that before,”
“Please?"I ask again and she scrunches her face up before sighing and nodding.
"Fine, but only if you’re not an arse to me and don’t lead (Y/N) on,”
“I’m going to have to get used to these manners,"She mumbles before beginning to walk away. "Meet me here after dinner, don’t be late, Malfoy,”
I can’t help but grin, knowing I am going to be able to speak to (Y/N).
As I start learning sign I slowly begin to talk to (Y/N). Just a simple “How are you?” or a comment on the weather or such during class. Along with lessons with Granger, I’ve picked up a few books on sign and my vocabulary is almost good enough to hold a conversation.
Today I am walking to potions with (Y/N), chatting happily.
“I can’t stand Snape sometimes,” I sign and she nods with a smirk.
“He can be very annoying,”She signs and I laugh.
“I heard that Umbridge is going to come in and check out his class today,” I sign, making a tiny mistake but she snorts.
“This will be fun,” She signs with a smirk before we walk into the classroom.
The lady in pink stands with Snape, holding herself with undeserving pride and a friendly mask that is beginning to fall to pieces as she waits for the class to calm down until her lips fall into a frown.
“Professor Umbridge will be joining the lesson today…"Snape says flatly, I turn to (Y/N) and give a smirk which she returns with a grin.
During the little exchange I notice something new, my heart beating faster than normal and realisation strikes me on why and for the first time, I feel a slight blush rise to my cheeks and I quickly whip my gaze away from (Y/N) who frowns at this.
I’ve realised I’m in love with (Y/N) and now I can’t have conversation with her without blushing a tomato-red colour when she smiles or laughs. It’s infuriating to be in such a state because of a girl that doesn’t like me back , it’s pathetic. It’s also pretty hard to sign when I’m a flustered mess.
As I take a seat next to Granger for another lesson, I sigh before resting my head on the table.
"Wow, what’s wrong with you?” Granger asks and I grunt.
“Nothing, I’m great,"I say sarcastically.
"Well someones in a tremendous mood,”
“Has this got something to do with the fact that you have fallen deeply in love with (Y/N) and now you are a total mess?"She smirks and for a second I think about denying it but I just nod.
“Well why are you moping and not telling her how you feel?”
“Because she doesn’t like me back, Granger, okay?” I snap and she roles her eyes
“Ugh, do all boys have to be so incredibly thick or are they all just blind. (Y/N) likes you too, idiot,” She sighs and I lift my head of the table suddenly.
“How do you know?”
“I have working eyes,”
“Are you sure?” I ask a little bit frantic to know.
“Yes, now (Y/N) should be leaving dinner about now so I suggest you make haste,” She smirks
I stand up quickly and begin to trot to the door but before leaving I turn round.
“Thanks, Granger, for all of this,”
“For goodness sake,Malfoy, go get her!"She snaps and I smirk before running out of the Library
I find (Y/N) walking along the corridors on her way to her dorm. I run towards her, grabbing her hand before coming to a halt, out of breath and panting.
"Draco, what’s wrong?” She signs with a concerned expression.
“Nothing, I just need to get something off my chest,” I sign, regaining my composure and standing up straight.
“What is it?”
I hesitate before I decide just to come out with it.
“I love you.”I sign and her eyes widen “I have for quite a while now.”
(Y/N) is completely still for a second and I start to panic.
“It’s fine if you don’t like me back, it’s fine,” I sign frantically but she comes closer.
lifts a hand to my cheek before leaning in. When her lips touch mine
it’s like nothing else matters except (Y/N) and I, kissing in the empty
corridor. Even though (Y/N)’s world is silent her actions seem louder
(Author Note: Okay I read this back and felt like throwing up over cheesiness so I apologise for that, this is pretty half assed but I have serious writers block plus my heating has broken so I’m a literal ice pole right now. Anyway my general opinion on this chapter is just"oops". Sorry )
