come on now

come on now

" we are not dating." Draco hated to break it to Lily, but he'd only taken Macy to the art class because Lily's mother, Charlie, asked him too. "Besides, she's way too young for me."

They sat together in the park, under the shade. Lily brought sandwiches and cold lemonade. It was perhaps, their 4th together. She planned to be with Charlie and Barry on the big night of fireworks with Barry's cousin Scott and his family.

"She looks old enough to me." Lily shot back as she pushed a veggie straw into his mouth.

"You know, that's coming from a seven year old who looks like she's going on 13." He reminded her after he cleared his throat.

"Can't help that I'm tall." She pressed her lips tightly as if she was the princess he remembered from the time she was a toddler.

"Yeah, you take after your grandmother's side of the family. The tall ones. I did not get that gene." He hated to remind her, he was short and definitely had to watch what he ate. Especially, if he was to remain the hipster he was. Draco watched lily unwrap the Twinkie. He did not want it. He vowed no more junk food, alcohol and especially no ganja.

Honestly, he did more Charlie told him to do now than he did when they were together.

"Macy's not that tall." Lily noted.

Draco sighed.

"I told you, she's too young for me." Draco was serious. "Besides, I don't date."

"But you should. You, need to date her. She needs a date. She needs a date to the 4th." Lily told him.

"Does, she now?" He laid back on the picnic blanket, looking at the sunlight coming through the canopy of leaves, up above. Draco so wanted a nap, He sighed raising himself up on  his elbows.

He guessed dating was a whole lot different that just sleeping with someone when the chance came. Draco shook his head. "You're just like your mother, you know that?"

Lily grinned, as if she knew she was right.

Maybe Draco will have a good time with Macy. You never know.
