//I hate that I’m never on when anyone else is on. clara-harville is up in the Draco/Clara para. laylaslytherinprincess I started something for Liam/Layla because even though she’s in a thing with Milo, I still ship them. I blame Gossip Girl for that, besides I created the character for that ship for you. Anywho. I also started a chat on Bonnie for awkwardcas! I want to get more paras going so pleaseeeee let me know if you want to do anything. It seems every time I do start something it just gets lost in the clutter of the dash. Hope someone sees this. I love this group and I love rping with you all.
"Great to know I have a friend that doesn’t mind the bookstore." He answered somewhat sarcastically, any friend of Matt’s had gone to the bookstore with him at some point. "Anyway, Arielle and I are fine. Not much has changed in the past hour since you last asked me." He laughed.
"I happen to like books. I read them all the time, not just for school purposes either. I thought you would know this, you know, being my friend and all." Draco rolled his eyes sarcastically. "Right, sorry, I forgot I asked. I was a bit distracted with other thoughts."
"Very." Clara nodded, sitting down.
"Made sure to only eat a little in anticipation for tonight." She smiled.
"Well then I’m really hoping I don’t disappoint you." Once Clara sat down, Draco took his seat across from her. When he sat down, an assortment of foods appeared in front of them. "This is just dinner, I also got dessert too" he said, smiling over at her.
Matt had to admit his friend had a point. While he started things half the time, the other half was when the other two started fights with him. He looked around then nodded towards a bookstore. “You know I’ll always pick that store.” He grinned.
Draco shrunk the things he had purchased and stuffed them into his pocket, before following Matt to the other store. “I don’t mind the bookstore, so you’re in luck.” He opened the door and held it for his friend to walk in. “So how are things with you and your girl?”
Matt smiled at the witch politely, trying to look apologetic for his friend. “It’s not like you’re the best person ever when it comes to them either.” He replied, turning back to him. “No offense but the nicknames and insults aren’t exactly gonna make them be nice to you.”
Draco thanked the witch for helping him, before walking over to his friend. “Well what do you expect me to do? I can stay nothing at all and they start something.” He shrugged his shoulders and walked out of the store. “So where to next Matty?”
"Tasteful." Clara said sarcastically, though grinning afterwards to show she was kidding. She didn’t really care about that. When they reached the spot, she smiled again, looking around at all of it.
"Wow. Very cliche. And beautiful."
“Sorry, I’m sure that’s the last thing you want to here.” He smirked over at her. Her reaction was all she needed to make him know he did a good job. Draco walked over to the table and pulled a chair out for her. “I hope you’re hungry. I had the house elves cook up a few different things I thought you might like.”
Matt rolled his eyes at the other boy. “You’re the one who started it.” He pointed out. He then grinned slyly and shrugged. “Well yeah. Between jabbering on all the time about how great Hermione is and how awful the terrible two are, I never get a quiet day.” He joked.
Draco shoved his friend. “Don’t speak of it anymore.” He picked up a few more things, before going to the counter where a young witch was waiting to help them. She smiled longingly at Draco, but he just ignored her. “Well I’m sorry that I can’t stand them. They are very rude after all.”
"Depends on who you talk to. A lot of girls swoon at the mere mention of Draco Malfoy." She said, laughing again. Clara smiled sweetly as he complimented her again.
"You have, but thank you."
"Well a lot of girl swoon when they think of me because of a certain reason I’m sure." He winked over at her. It was no secret that Draco had been with many girls at Hogwarts, just notches in his bedpost as his friends would tell him. But Clara was different. "Well you are very welcome." They approached the spot by the lake that he had set up, making it look like a fairytale garden. "Well what do you think?"
"That’s very sweet." Clara smiled.
"Though, I hear you’re quite the smooth talker. You’re quite the legend around here." She laughed.
"Well I don’t know how good my reputation is. But I want you to have a wonderful evening. I like to think of myself as a romantic sometimes, cocky yes, but a romantic too." He brought her hand up to his lips and kissed it. "Did I mention how lovely you look tonight?"
Clara nodded and took his hand, lacing her fingers with his.
"Classic setting." She smiled warmly. They walked in silence for a bit, until she spoke up.
"So, the great Draco Malfoy, how do dates with you usually go?"
"Yeah, sometimes classic is the best, at least that is what I’ve been told." He took her hand and walked with her. He looked over at her curiously and smiled. "Well they go a lot differently then this date is going to go. I like you Clara. And you’re the first girl that I’ve dated in a long time. I want this to be special."
