  1. What is your age?
  2. What is your gender?
  1. It had been 3 days since the Quidditch match and Oliver was still unconscious. You visited him every day after all of your classes and stayed with him for about 10 minutes. On the fourth day of visiting him you sat on the stool next to the bed. You started off holding his hand and talking to him, just like you did when you first saw him in hospital. He looked very peaceful and at times quite cute; sometimes you had to brush bits of hair out of his face. After a couple of minutes you started doing some homework but occasionally kept glancing over your shoulder at him, because he was moving slightly, so it wouldn't be long till he woke up. You heard him moving slightly again, so you looked over your shoulder and saw him lazily open his eyes; but once he saw you see him he quickly shut them and pretended that he never woke up. You decided to go along with it and turned around, taking his hand again whilst talking to him. This time you started speaking to him softly and gently saying, “You’re so amazing at Quidditch Oliver, we need you to wake up so you can started training us again-without you we’ll probably lose to Hufflepuff! I want to be as good as you at Quidditch one day.” You made sure that you said it so it didn’t sound like you knew he was awake. His hand was quite warm which gave you some heat because it was quite cold in the hospital from your point of view; thinking about this gave you an idea about a prank that you could do to him. You curled up next to him on the bed, savouring his warmth, from where you were you could see a smile appearing on his face, but no doubt did he think you still thought that he was unconscious-he was SO wrong! You got out your wand and held it in your left hand while you put your left arm around his shoulders; then you pointed the wand at his still smiling face and whispered “Aguamenti!”
  2. He jumped straight out of bed when the jet of water hit him in the face, and you took this opportunity to quickly move off the bed, grab your homework and quickly run to Madam Pomfrey to tell her that Oliver is awake and escape the hospital before anything happens. Before you left the hospital you heard him laughing and shouted after you, "I'll get you _________! Better watch out!" The way he said it made you know that he wasn't mad which made you feel so much better! The next day Oliver was let out of the hospital which made you cautious of any pranks that he might pull on you. You didn't see Oliver for a whole week, which made you all the more suspicious about what he is up to. Eventually you decided that if he hadn’t pulled a prank on you yet, then he never will, so you became less cautious and sat on the ground by yourself in front of the Black Lake. You were daydreaming and didn’t hear anyone speaking, or coming towards you, so it was too late when suddenly you started floating in the air over the Black Lake. You looked behind you and saw Oliver sitting on a branch of a tree smiling at you, pointing his wand in your direction. You eventually came to realise that he was using the “Winguardium Leviosa” spell, and you knew exactly what he was planning to do when you stopped, in the middle of the Lake. “No, No, No Oliver! Please don’t do it! Please!” You begged. “OK fine.” Oliver agreed and started bringing you towards the shore, when he stopped you again. “Told you I would get you back!” He laughed as he released the spell and dropped you into the Lake. You screamed as you plunged into the freezing cold Lake, and once you resurfaced you swam as fast as you could to the shore to get out of its icy temperatures. Once you got out you noticed that Oliver had left, but left a note saying “Now we’re even.” Do you intend on getting him back?
  3. The days went quickly after that and it was soon the Christmas break. Hermione went home for Christmas, but you had to stay at Hogwarts for Christmas because your parents were on Holiday; but it didn't really matter because Harry, Ron, Neville, Oliver and Draco were staying as well. You were in the great hall sitting next to Ron whilst he and Harry play wizards chess. Hermione came in to tell you guys to have a merry Christmas and that Harry wants to go check out the library again for information about Nicholas Flamel even though you’ve all checked about a million times. Once she left Ron started complaining about how he doesn’t want to spend his Christmas in the library and you had to agree with him; then suddenly you had a great idea. “Wait here till I come back.” You told Harry and Ron before disappearing into the castle to find Neville. You eventually found him reading a herbology book in the common room, you told him to go wait with Harry and Ron in the great hall till you get back; you waited for him to leave before going to find Oliver. The first place you checked, knowing Oliver was the Quidditch Captain, was the Quidditch pitch and sure enough he was there flying on his broom. You called him down and told him the same thing that you said to Neville; now that you had rounded up all of the Gryffindor’s it only left one Slytherin-Draco. You searched everywhere for him in the castle but to no success; finally you found him sitting on the ground by the Black Lake catching a green apple. You crept up to him silently intending to scare him but just as you were about to say “boo!” he threw the apple behind his head so it hit you. “Ow!” you said as you rubbed your head where the apple hit you; Draco turned around and apologised saying that he thought it was someone else. “It doesn’t matter. So are you spending Christmas alone?” You asked. “As a matter of fact I am; unless you’re inviting me to spend it with you?” He said with a smirk on his face that made you blush slightly. “No-I’m inviting you to spend it with us.” You said and grabbed his hand before he could reject or question you and dragged him off to the great hall where the others are.
  4. You drag Draco into the hall and take him to the others much to the objection of him and the others. "What you doing here Malfoy?!" Harry angrily asked him. "I invited Draco, to spend Christmas with us and to join in an activity that I think we'll enjoy. Try to be nice-it's Christmas!" You tell them, as the groan miserably. “So what’s this activity you’re talking about ___________?” Neville asked. “Well I thought that we could do secret Santa.” You replied. “What’s secret Santa?” Ron asked clueless. “Well Weasley, secret Santa is where people’s names are placed in a hat or something and everyone has to pick a name at random. You can’t tell anyone who you have and you have to buy your person a present. Draco said trying very hard to be nice, but it wasn’t really working out. “So does everyone want to play?” You asked cheerfully. Everyone nodded and you quickly went about writing everyone’s names down while you sent Oliver to go get a box or something to put the pieces of paper in. Once you wrote everyone’s name you put them in the box that Oliver found, but made sure that you took yours and Draco’s name out when no one was looking and hid them up your sleeve; because you knew that if one of them picked Draco they wouldn’t get him anything relatively nice and if Draco picked one of them he would do the same. You got them to get in a line, close their eyes and pick a name out of the box. You started with Oliver and worked your way down to Draco; before you got him to pick a name you quickly put in yours otherwise the box would have been empty. Once he chose yours you quickly put in Draco’s name and told everyone that they could open their eyes because everyone except you had chosen; so there could only be one name left.
  5. “So what do we do now?” Oliver asked. “Well now we should try to avoid each other as much as possible, and start thinking about what we can get our person. Remember tell no one who you’ve got.” You said while walking out of the great hall. You went back to the common room and slumped on the sofa, thinking about what you’re going to get Draco. “Hmmmm....what to get him...” You spoke aloud to yourself. After a while of thinking you fell asleep seeing as you couldn’t think of anything to buy Draco. It seemed like minutes of being asleep, when suddenly you hit the floor; the shock and slight pain made you wake up immediately. You sat up and saw that in you place pretending to be sleeping again was Oliver; you crawled on the floor towards him, grabbed his arm and flung him on the floor too. “Hey, I thought we were trying to avoid each other as much as possible.” Oliver said in a tired voice, lying on the ground while smiling at you. “Don’t blame me you’re the one that pushed me off the sofa!” You told him as you stood up from the floor. “Well I’m here now...” He said as he got up and started pushing you out the common room, “So go on. Get out of here.” You reluctantly walked out of the common room and to the Black Lake, thinking that somehow the answer for Draco’s gift was there, where you found him today sitting on the ground catching a green apple.
  6. It was a couple of minutes after you sat on the ground thinking once again about Draco’s present, that it started to snow. It started off light and you enjoyed watching it drifting to the ground and trying to catch it with your tongue; but gradually it got more and more, so you decided to take some cover in the tree behind you. You rested there for a while and watched the snow falling when a Christmas song came into your head, you checked to see if anyone was outside and then once it was clear that no one was there you started to sing, “Snow is falling all around me, children playing-having fun. It’s the season, love and understanding-merry Christmas everyone! Time for parties and celebration, people dancing-all night long....” You tried to remember the rest of the words but you couldn’t, so you ended up sing the same thing over and over again and humming the tune to some of the parts. You did that twice and then got bored of singing the same thing so just stopped and desperately tried to remember, when a voice joined in continuing from where you stopped in the song “ Time for presents and exchanging kisses-time for singing Christmas songs.” The person’s voice sounded quite familiar and he could sing, but you didn’t recognise it immediately. Who is it?
  7. You close your eyes trying to think about who this person was whilst still listening to them singing. You could only work out that this was a boy singing, but didn't know which one. You smiled as you started to remember the rest of the words and started to sing along with him, with your eyes still closed and you mind still trying to work out who it is. Eventually the song finished and once he spoke to you, you knew exactly who it was, "I come here when I need to think too; technically it could be called my tree, but I’ll share it with you." Draco said as he jumped into the tree sitting on the branch next to you. "You have a nice singing voice Draco; you know when I was listening to you I was trying to work out who it was-didn't sound like you." You complimented him. "Thanks, but my voice is nothing compared to yours. Did you notice the birds stopped singing?" He told you, and sure enough the birds did stop singing and had only just started again knowing that you've stopped. You two just sat there in silence after that, staring at the Lake as the snow continued to fall. After a while of silence you turned to face him, out of the corner of your eye you saw two red-headed boys who you guessed to be Fred and George hiding from someone inside the castle, you decided to not question their appearance and asked Draco, "Do you want to play a game?" "What game?" The question he asked made you think about it for some time, “Umm...I don’t know. Do you have any ideas?” You said sounding a bit clueless. “Hmm...I think I remember a game that I used to play. What you do is ask the other person a question, like for instance.....What’s your favourite colour?”

What you do is ask the other person a question, like for instance.....What’s your favourite colour?”
  9. “(What colour you chose)” You reply. “And then I would tell you mine, which is green.” He said as he pointed to some green on his Slytherin uniform. You started off asking some pretty random questions, but then decided that this is a good way to find out what he likes which would help you find a present for him, so from then on your questions had some relevance and it was almost as if Draco had the same idea as you. After a while of asking each other questions you both started just talking, laughing and having a good time; when something unusual-either good or bad started to happen. You were laughing looking at the sky when you saw it, mistletoe starting to grow from the branch-as if someone was doing it by magic. You remember the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe because you parents use to do it every Christmas-you started to blush looking at it as it quickly grows above you, if the people under the mistletoe didn’t kiss they were sure to have bad luck. You stopped laughing slowly and looked at Draco who must have noticed the mistletoe too because even he was blushing slightly and had an unsure face of what-to-do. You looked back towards the Lake, both of you unsure what to do in this awkward situation; then suddenly you felt it, a gentle kiss on your cheek. When you felt the kiss on you cheek, despite the cold snow still falling on you, you felt as if a fire had started and engulfed you in warmth and you had that strange sensation in the pit of your stomach of butterflies. When he moved away he saw the small smile on your face and jumped down off the tree and said quite cheekily, “I’m quite cold, and I know you are too, maybe we should go inside.” You jumped down from the tree and walked together back inside the castle where it was warm, but once inside you parted your separate ways to your common rooms after, in your opinion, saying an awkward goodbye.
  10. A couple of days had passed and you hadn't seen Draco since, you had the weird feeling that he was avoiding you. It didn't really matter anyway and from your point of view, Christmas had come early this year. By an agreement on the first day of the holidays all 6 of you were to get your presents from the common rooms, your secret Santa presents and meet in the great hall to open them together with everyone. You all opened your presents from your family first; you got a pretty dress from your parents, obviously it was cold to wear it now so it would have to wait until summer. Ron got a knitted jumper from his mother with a big ‘R’ for Ron on it; Oliver got a new broom not a Nimbus 2000 though, but it was still new, Neville got a new herbology book from his parents and Draco got a black jacket from his father. Harry seemed not to get anything, but he looked OK with it, as if he didn’t expect to get anything. After you finished opening personal presents, it was time for the secret Santa gifts. Neville had picked Ron’s name and got him a couple of chocolate frogs and a box of Bertie Bott’s All Flavour Beans; Ron had picked Oliver’s name and got him some leathery gloves for Quidditch; Oliver picked Harry’s name and got him his own Golden Snitch “for practice, if you want to be as good as me one day.” Oliver said and winked at you remembering the day at the hospital; Harry picked Neville’s name and got him a plant for him to look after. Draco was next and you were really excited to see what he got you, he pulled out a small box from his pocket with a red ribbon tied round it and handed it to you. You looked at him quizzically and he nodded at the box with a smile on his face indicating you to open it; what you found inside was beautiful. There were two jewelled snakes, one green and one silver intertwined together to form some sort of bracelet that looked stunning. You picked it up and held it in your hands examining it almost, it wasn’t heavy but it wasn’t light either, and the light from the candles made the jewels twinkle. “Wow! Thanks so much Draco-it’s beautiful!” You said happily as you gave him a big hug. “Well now you can always have a part of Slytherin with you...” He said as he pointed to himself, “Look at the inside of it.” In the inside of the bracelet there was some engraved writing saying “Speak to me not in words, but in thoughts.” You looked at him confused not knowing what the writing meant but put it on anyway, smiled then handed him his gift.
  11. You reached inside of your pocket and pulled out a black ring with silver patterns inlaid on it. Around the ring are the words “It is wise to listen to your conscience.” You inspected it quickly, as if it could have changed in your pocket before handing it to Draco and cheerfully saying “Happy Christmas Draco.” He seemed to like it, well at least you think he did from the smile on his face; he was inspecting the ring like you did with the bracelet and when he saw the words he quietly whispered them to himself trying to work out a meaning to them. “Put the ring on.” You helpfully told him; once he did what you said and put the ring on his finger you continued to tell him how it works, “It’s a conscience ring. Whenever you don’t know what to do, doing something you shouldn’t be or being evil in your actions, the ring will try to influence you to do the right thing. I didn’t want you to be forced into doing good without any of your personal choice, so it will only try to persuade you but in the end you make the choice-but if ever you don’t want the choice and only want to do good, then twist the ring around your finger 3 times.” When you finished speaking Ron scoffed “It would be nice for a change if he was good all the time! Just one nice Slytherin!” Draco shot him a look before turning back to you and saying thank you. Everyone looked quite pleased with their gifts but you were still trying to figure out what the engraving on the bracelet meant, still you didn’t let it trouble you. You all stayed together for the rest of the day eating Christmas dinner, telling jokes and singing more Christmas songs; in your opinion it was the best Christmas you could have had away from home.
