Who's That Little Girl -DxH-25CHAPTER TWENTY-FIVE:
New Home, New Surprise
After staying for several days in the flat, Draco and Harry finally find a small house, not really far from the Manor, and a bit secluded from the crowd. Near it, there's a small school named Maxell Elementary. Draco knows the education centre, because Millicent Bulstrode, one of his classmates, studied there before she went to Hogwarts.
Cho Chang, Heather's sister, helps them a lot. She works in a real estate agency, and she is the one who has offered the house to them. She promises a faster work than her company used to do to all their clients, just because Draco and Harry are the friends of Heather and the Chang sisters love the kids a bit too much.
Draco has told her that nobody can know his and Harry's new address, and Cho finally made an oath for that. She is a professional, after all.
So, in the middle of April, Draco and Harry are busy, packing the things into boxes. The kids are more than elated with the preparations. Scorpius forget
The Rain 3"I love the cake," Jeremy said on his master's shoulder. "The sweet, the softness, and the smell mmm, I can smell it again."
The man only heard half of Jeremy's words. He was staring outside of the window of the shopping display. Instead of a foggy land, he was staring at a rainy sidewalk. There were two bodies sprawled in their own pool of blood. One of them was a teenager, died with a gunshot on his hip. The other one was a shabby-clothed old man, he was shot on the head. His hand was gripping a folded knife.
"Sir, I don't understand," the 'flying' dolphin muttered. He 'flew' and stopped beside his master and asked, "Why you took the man too? It's not your job. The man's death, technically, was a suicide, he wasn't killed. He attacked the people who had killed his son, and he was shot to death. If your cousin knows that you've stolen one of his Living Contracts, he will be furious."
The man was silent before he answered, "I don't know, Thomas. I think that kid won't make it thr

Rescue and New Haven
"Guess he doesn't need a nudge," Avery snickers at Harry, who is lying uncomfortably on the base of the box. "Maybe he wants a talk?"
"He's awake already?" Rosier's mocking voice cuts the silence. "Wanna give him a little greeting. It's a great pleasure to see him again." He runs towards the box and peeks in. And then he spits to Harry's face, who frowns in disgust.
"He's not really happy to see us, yeah?" Avery says.
"Well, it shouldn't be," Mulciber says from the distance. "He has to be happy to see us. Maybe Leslie has given him some sort of nice place to crash in, so he forgets people who have raised him. Us."
Harry wants to throw up in disgust. They don't raise him. They never do. They rape him. They taint his soul. They make him cry in self-hatred. They make him feel useless. They make him want to die. If Draco didn't sing the small song, Harry would have died a long time ago.
Harry's head spins. Draco is he okay? Are the kid
The Rain 2"Welcome back."
That voice sounded so clear inside my head. I started to wonder: am I dead yet, and was that a sound of an angel who came for me? But why it was so dark? Was the heaven got their nightfall and they forgot to light the lamps on?
And then something smooth brushed against my nose, and I directly sneezed. I heard a hiss, and then someone cursed quietly right on my left ear. The voice had a weird accent and sounded like the owner was in flu.
"Careful, kid! I don't want to wash these manes again!"
I heard someone laughed softly, and said, "Jer, I warned you for the last time, do not disturb our customer."
"Master, I just want to wake him up. The other guest keeps asking me about when he can meet this kid. I'm getting bored to tell him to eat the cake while saying 'please wait a sec' again and again like an answering machine."
"That is your job. Quit complaining."
Slowly I opened my eyes, and stared directly to a fireplace. There was someone who squatted in front of it,
Who's That Little Girl -DxH-23CHAPTER TWENTY-THREE:
Heather Chang is a small, pretty woman with long black hair and slanted black eyes. She shares a room together with her older sister, Cho, (who works as a secretary in a real estate company) in the flat they have lived for a long time. She loves her job as a receptionist in the flat dearly, and her late parents actually were the owner of this flat before they died and inherited the flat to their daughters.
"Good afternoon, Miss."
She looks up and sees several men carrying a big, wooden chest. "Good afternoon. Can I help you?"
"Package for Mr. Malfoy. Is he home yet?"
Heather looks at her list. The people who live here have to sign the list if they want to go outside or come inside. Draco must have forgotten again, that guy. Always complicates things, he is. "He didn't fill his list. I don't know if he's home already. I don't see him around yet."
"I see," the big man answers. "We have to check out by ourselves then. Where is his house?"
"The highest floor

A Help and A New Interest
Four days later
Pansy Felicia Davies, nee Parkinson, is one of the local policewomen in the town. Her father, Felix Parkinson, was the chief police before he retired several years ago. Being a police's daughter makes Pansy's way easier to be the policewoman. She's a professional and quite witty in her job circle, and her partners like her.
She is sitting alone, reading the newspaper, when her phone suddenly rings. "Good morning, Davies speaking."
"Pansy," the voice calls. Pansy smiles widely. Her childhood friend is calling!
"Draco! Ah, that blonde Malfoy! How are you?"
"I've been better," Draco answers sullenly.
"Too bad," Pansy says kindheartedly. "Hey, what's the matter?"
"I need your help."
"Why I feel this is not going to be good?"
"Because you're always right, Pans."
Pansy laughs. "What is it? Or should I meet you somewhere?"
"Hm, I think we should meet. I really need to tell you something. How about tomorrow, in our usua
Who's That Little Girl -DxH-21CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE:
What a Night
Draco and Harry are lying on the bed, exhausted after tidying the flat together. Harry exhales and looks at the blonde. "I'm sorry, Draco."
"Maybe someone who knocked me out stole the spare key I had."
"What?" Draco frowns. Then he remembers that Harry ever sneaked into his house. After Syl told him that 'Mommy innocent', he has started to believe that Harry had no bad intentions by sneaked into his flat. Well, if putting a flat on a disaster is not a bad intention.
"Draco, I was curious about Syl and maybe I could put you out of my system. Remember when I took your spare key?" Draco shakes his head. "When The Minister invited me to his party." Finally Draco nods. "I heard Syl cried in your flat and I wanted to help. So I took your spare key and asked her to duplicate it. So when I gave you your spare key, I still had one with me."
Draco only gapes at him for a while. "Continue," he whispers.
"In your son's birthday, I knew that you would ta

The next day
"What's eating you?"
Draco looks at Harry. "Er just some shit at work."
Harry only stares at him. "What?" Draco asks as he fidgets uncomfortably.
"God," Draco hits his forehead. "You sound like a suspicious wife."
Harry suddenly jumps on him. "Spill, Draco. Something is really bothering you. And don't tell me it's just 'some shit at work'. Because I won't believe it."
Draco exhales. "Okay, okay, if you insist. Blaise will make a small party in the beach. I really want to take you and the kids there. We'll have a good time together. But I don't want to risk Syl by making her visible to people, although I know that I can trust Blaise and my friends. They won't tell people secrets."
"So why not?" Harry throws his head to Draco's lap, which Draco surprisingly lets him be. Draco sighs and lets his hand wonder through Harry's soft, raven locks. Harry must have been washing his hair, he m
