aftermath



Draco found Lily and Brick soon enough.

He hated to see Charlie in a panic. He would have called Brick if he had his cell phone number. Just by chance he walked up to the old parking lot to find them eating snacks, after the big event.

"You're in trouble, little girl." Draco gave Lily a dead stare, but she laughed at him, anyway. "I'm serious." He hugged himself, and tilted his head with a slight sigh. "You're mom, might never forgive you for this."

She pressed her lips tight as if she did get the seriousness of it.

Draco cleared his throat. He plopped down next to her and stole a chip. "You two, will probably be grounded til Halloween," he said with a wince, as he ate another potato chip. "Possibly, til Christmas. Believe me, you freaked her out, pretty good. I hadn't heard her so mad, in a long time."

"Really?" Now Lily sounded concerned.

Draco nodded.

"Sorry." Brick managed to say as he kept his head down, ready for his punishment.

Draco couldn't  help but smile.

"Thanks," Draco said. "I'm glad you were with Lily." Still, they were in trouble. He needed to make the call to tell Charlie, he was on his way with Lily. Draco would take home Brick, too.
