The beautiful night started to rise over and consume the buzzing atmosphere of Hogwarts. Everywhere you look there would be small huddles of students and teachers preparing for the most magnificent moment of the school year that excited all, including the more malicious and angry students; like Slytherins. It was finally the night of the Yule Ball and the entirety of the dorm was preparing for what Pansy called “our big night”. I sat on my bed and played with the green and black ombre lace on my dress that my mother had sent me. I sighed greatly as Millicent Bulstrode droned on about how romantic it was when Baise Zabini had asked her to the ball. Her large hand fell down onto my bare shoulder “Don’t worry y/n I’m sure someone will at least ask you to dance or something…” I cocked my eyebrow at her and scrunched up my face. “Hmm yeah, thanks a lot, Millie” I hummed in response, “I thought we were going together that’s all…” I trailed off and Millicent’s hand ran down my arm to grab my hand.
“uh y/n you’re my best friend and I said I would go with you because I thought there was no hope in someone asking me out, besides I thought you had a date” I sighed wriggling free from her hand so I could place my forehead in my palms. “No, I didn't Millie” Two sets of feet planted themselves in front of me and my best friend. I looked up to see the Slytherin equivalent of Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb. “Yes Crabbe, Goyle..” the two boys exchanged glances, shrugging and nudging each other until the round-faced boy spoke up.
“Draco needs you in the common room” he stumbled over his words like the large clumsy oath he is.
“Oh for fuck’s sake, what does he want now, Merlin’s sake” They both shrugged so I pushed passed them and trudged down to the common room.
“Right Malfoy I’m really not in the mood today so can we get this over and done wi-” I looked up to see hundreds floating candles just like there was in the great hall. And in the midst of it all was Draco Malfoy. The orange flames beautifully illuminated his face, he wore a pure black suit with a classic green tie, and along with that a sheepish grin. He let out a breathy laugh once I realised my Jaw was hanging down low gawking at the beautiful sight in front of me, his blond hair was slightly ruffled but it still looked perfect.
“y/n… you look beautiful” he smiled very delicately as I let my gaze take its own route around the common room; almost focusing on every flickering flame it came across. A bright blush coloured in our faces like colouring pencils.
Draco started to slowly step towards me, his grey eyes bright and wide. He clutched my wrists gently but hard enough to fully capture my attention.
“I know I should’ve asked you sooner but, would you go to the ball with me?” I smiled at him and opened my mouth to speak, but no words came out.
My throat had gone dry, like it was closing up. My face dropped and all I could do was stare straight ahead of me. All the colours drained slowly from Draco’s face as he gripped my arms, the lace sleeves rubbers against my arms snapping me back to reality, “y/n are you okay. You completely froze” I stared back into his eyes deeply.
“Sorry, it’s nothing. I’m just so fucking happy”
“Y/n I can’t believe you didn’t see this coming, I’ve been dropping hints all year.”
“Questions later Princess, you look stunning. Now let’s get to the ball, everyone will be dying to see you. I can’t wait to se the look on everyone’s face when they see me with you”
He grabbed my hand and tugged me all the way to the great hall where I would later dance the night away with Draco Malfoy. We walked into the hall and just like Draco had said; everyone’s eyes were glued to us, the unknown couple and what would’ve been the most unlikely couple.
Me and Draco sat at a table as Cedric walked over to us.
“Fuck” Draco mumbled “what do you want Diggory” Cedric raised one eyebrow and leaned closer to us
“Just congratulating you on getting y/l/n to go to the ball with you, she’s a stubborn one she is” He laughed and smirked at me and Draco as Draco’s face became redder by the second.
“Fucking hell Diggory that’s enough move on” Cedric snorted and returned to Cho Chang who was probably waiting to dance with Cedric as ever since we got here all he has done was stare at me and Draco.
“That’s it I’ve had enough of sitting around, come on Prince lets go dance” Draco laughed and slightly blushed at the nickname and got up taking my hand. We confidently strutted up to the dance floor, I knew That Draco and I have had a sufficient amount of of practice to be the best couple in the room.
Draco wrapped his hands round my waist and gently hoisted me up, I quickly latched onto his shoulders as he bought me back down to the floor. I looked around all the other couples had cleared the floor and the only other pair was Viktor Krum and Hermonie Granger.
Draco snorted and leant down to my ear sending an amazing shiver down my spine he pressed a light kiss to the shell of my ear and whispered. “Lets show that Mudblood and her toy boy who the best couple in this school is” I smiled wickedly as we dance all through the night.
Even on the way back to our dorm we held each other tightly and dance our way back to the common room.
It was perfect.

A gentle hand slid over the outside of your dress as you patted down the delicate places that deserved the most attention. It never really took you too long to get ready for anything, but this in particular was a big deal for you. In dating the infamous Jared Leto for more than 6 months you felt the need to always look your best when leaving the house to do simple errands such as going to the store, going on small dates with him, and just going out with your friends in general. However, this particular event required a bit more preparation, an award show designed to recognize actors, actresses, and amazing talents of the entertainment world, was the most important thing you’d ever really gone to.
Previously, Jared went to these things alone or with some form of eye candy that he could strut around for photos and appearances, but no such event happened in your time together yet until now. This would be the first time you two actually attended a public appearance this big together, and you couldn’t stop the nerves from ripping through your entire body. Your hands were shaking, your palms were sweating, and you continued to fiddled with pieces of your dress that were already perfect.
Delicate thoughts of judgement clouded the forefront of your mind as you truly wondered if you were good enough to really stand at his side on the red carpet tonight. Perhaps you should change your mind, there was still time. You could easily just watch him tonight on the tv, waltz the carpet alone like he usually did, but you knew deep down that if you backed out now he would be hurt. Although he usually did have a good time at these events, he often dreaded the boredom behind most of them especially when his friends were not around.
A gentle knock pulled you from your thoughts and a small jump rippled through you as you turned towards the door. A glance down to your watch revealed that it was indeed time for you two to make your departure, but were you ready?
“Come in….” you trailed off, turning towards the door frame and slipping your hands behind the dress to watch the ends of it flare around the back of your knee caps. It was spring, and the gentle breeze of tonight’s air would make it absolutely perfect, at least, that’s what the designer told you.
his smile was contagious and spread across his face like the plague and you couldn’t stop the blush that took over your features at his reaction. He hadn’t actually seen the dress that you had picked out for the event, and the overall construction of it surprised even you. You had never really been a dress person, blue jeans or tights with a nice shirt was always your go to unless you were working and it was slacks and a decorative blouse, but dresses were completely foreign to you. The original gown you had picked out was the very definition of plain jane which was the direct opposite of what you were going for. You were never the type to value the attention of other people, in fact, you did everything in your power to avoid it; too many eyes on you usually made you uncomfortable. Even now, you felt yourself coming a part at the seams with just his crystal blue orbs scanning you over, but the devastatingly enamored smile he flashed in your direction destroyed every thought you had in that moment. With the help of the store’s designer you had truly picked out a dress that was unforgettable.
the delicate ombre of the dress was slightly overshadowed by silver glittered texture that formed small patterns around the flared bottom and slimmed bosom decorating your chest. It was absolutely perfect. Short enough to give awareness to your slightly long but beautiful legs, flared at the bottom like you like, and no long train for you to accidently fall over. It was the impeccable combination of elegant, flirty and fun.
“Are you just going to stand there, gawking?” You questioned shifting your weight slightly in discomfort. His lips pressed together as he looked off to the side in an expression that mocked deep thought. A slight nod rippled through his frame and he smiled.
“Yeah.” he answered simply before slipping one of his hands into his pocket and leaning against the wall comfortably.
“Are you sure I shouldn’t just…..stay here?” you question slipping your hands up to your ears in an attempt to remove your earrings. Turning to face the mirror you could see his reflection in the background. It radiated unease and disappointment and that was the last thing you wanted to do to him.
“I mean, if you don’t really wanna go….” he trailed off and the poorly hidden disappointment in his voice sent a sharp pain through the left side of your breast. He was hurt.
“I just….I don’t want to ruin it for you……” you started before holding your earring in your hand and glancing down at the floor. He was aware of your low levels of confidence, and he respected you enough not to force you to do things you didn’t want to do. You were stubborn in that regard, but he shrugged.
“It’s just another award show, there will be more…….I just….would hate to let all this pretty go to waste.” the shuffling sound of his feet growing closer to you made you smile, and before you were aware of it, his fingers were on your skin.
“You really think it looks good enough?” you question finally looking up at him and his eyebrow quirked. Blue orbs slid from your eyes down to your shoes before returning back to your face, and you had half a mind to check if you were still clothed because it felt as if he had just visually undressed you.
“Good enough?” he was genuinely confused. You didn’t want to explain, you felt as if it were a petty insecurity that he wouldn’t understand, but you couldn’t hide from those eyes.
“Somebody like me ….” his hand raised and landed on your lips before you could continue and he sighed.
“Stop.” he said simply before slowly letting his hand run down the delicate confines of your lips to your hands.
“Where you come from, and who you are, are two completely different things. You’re just as good if not better than half those people that will be out there tonight. You’re important to me, and I want you there. You are the most interesting thing about tonight.” he admitted, and the confidence behind his words fueled you. his face grew closer to yours and you prepared yourself for his kiss only to feel the absence of his lips.
There was a gentle air against your face as his frame moved away from yours, and his fingers were around the small clutch in your hands.
“I mean, but if you don’t wanna go I mean…” he went on walking away and turning his back to you playfully. You chased after him slightly, wrapping your hands around the back of his shoulders and resting them on his chest.
“I’m going, I’m going!” you laughed before watching him turn to you.
“Good, because you’re beautiful and people deserve to see you.”
“You just say that because you want my goods.” You joked wrapping your arms around the back of his neck and pulling him closer.
“What? Did you hear that line I just laid on you? Oh I’m gettin’ your goods. I could have em’ now if I wanted them.” he urged.
“Oh you think so?” You questioned.
“Mhm.” He nodded planting a small kiss on your lips before pulling you closer. His eyes flickered towards his watch before slipping his hand in yours. You followed along excitedly while practicing deep breathing in an effort to calm you raging anxiety.
The ride was nearly excruciating as you stared out of the window in awe of the illuminating buildings that took up most of the night life. The distant sound of Jared having side conversations with the driver and a few of his band mates in the backseat went unnoticed to you. You had originally joined in on the conversation previously, but the realization of you growing closer and closer to the red carpet sent a tingle of discomfort through your spine. Were you sure this was a good idea. The tabloids hinted at Jared having a significant other, but you had done a good job of concealing yourself from them, but tonight was the night that you exposed the rumors for what they were and you didn’t know if you were ready. Would you be what they expected?
The distant feeling of Jared’s fingers colliding against yours sent your eyes in his direction and he smiled. He was always a master at sensing your moods even when you didn’t let on what you were actually feeling, and the sensation of his concern forced you to smile.
“You look hot by the way.” Shannon’s voice slid through the forefront of your mind, but you couldn’t help the laugh that fell through your lips at his eyes on your skin. The playful look on his face made it hard for you to take him seriously.
“Says the guy with the impossibly perfectly tied bow tie.” you spoke.
“Hey….I didn’t say you looked as good as me, but close.” He joked pulling at the bow tie attached to his dress shirt before everyone broke out in laughter.
You two were on the red carpet before you knew it and the cascade of blinding flashes from the camera’s of the reporters nearly gave you a seizers. You stood there frozen as they threw questions in your direction.
“Jared this way! Over here Jared! Flash a smile here Jared! Jared! Jared! Who’s your date!?” The questions fell from so many directions that you didn’t really know where to look and the tightening grip of Jared’s hand on yours wasn’t helping. In fact, it just made you more nervous. His voice was low in your ear as he directed you to smile at the camera’s on your left and to simply not stop smiling. He didn’t brief you on the expectations in the car, but it became simple after a while. Just don’t stop smiling. If they catch a picture of you without it, you’ll be misconstrued as the stuck up date with a bad attitude, or the weird mousey girl next to him that he probably didn’t even know. Your lips were on fire, and your cheeks felt as though they would fall from your face at any moment.
“Maybe they’ll think i’m some sick person from the make a wish foundation and this is a one time thing.” you joked and his laugh radiated in your ear before he leaned down to whisper.
“You don’t fuck like a sick person.” he teased. Your eyes flashed toward him with a look of pure shock and the smirk plastered on his lips nearly sent your lower half into a pooling mess of arousal. You imagined that the picture associated with the current reaction would be legendary. Your wildfire of a blush spread across your face, while his devilish smirk nearly overtook his features. You could see it now.
“JARED LETO WHISPERS SWEET NOTHINGS TO HIS RED CARPET DATE ;; WHAT DID HE SAY?”
Your laugh turned into a small giggle as you tried to hide your reaction and suddenly his hand was gone from yours. An interviewer caught his attentions and began her questions with him, but instead of interrupting you attempting to continue smiling in the background. You assumed that with his absence you wouldn’t be the center of anyone’s attention anymore, but the camera’s continued to flash in your direction without warning.
You could feel the growing anxiety in your abdomen reach its peak and the sudden panic attack you wanted to avoid began rippling through your spine. Your smile started to fade and you swallowed hard, only to find Shannon at your side. His frame stood in front of yours as his hand rested on your hip. His voice was low in your ear as he questioned you.
“You alright?” He was concerned and you had never heard his voice like that before.
“I….I think so I just….I need a second?” You spoke and he smiled.
“Totally normal. I don’t think we could’ve warned ya about this enough.” He admitted.
“Just breathe….” he trailed before his eyes connected with yours. It was easy and once you gained your breath, you smiled.
“Just like that.” He instructed before moving aside and posed for some pictures with you. Jared’s eyes connected with yours as you were photographed and he stopped mid sentence. There was a look on his face that you couldn’t quite decipher; it mirrored awe and slight arousal. He had lost his train of thought and you were sure that the interviewer was probably confused.
His hand slid against yours and before you knew it you were at his side with his arm around the back of your waist.
“I can’t leave her alone too long.” He joked into the microphone as the interviewer laughed whole heartedly amused. You couldn’t help the smile that slid over your features as he continued to speak with her.
“Have you looked into her eyes, I mean it’s insane. They’re like little gifts from the Gods.” He answered looking into your eyes and making her blush worse.
“This man, knows how to speak to ladies.” You admitted before looking back towards the interviewer. Her blush nearly out weighed yours as you directed his attention back to her.
He was finally attentive to her as she questioned him about tonight’s festivities as well as previous projects he’s worked on. As she finished up he leaned closer to you
