The very next morning, Draco ambushed Pansy in the common room. He hadn't even opened the box yet, needing her to be there with him.
She smirked as she sat next to him on the couch. 'It's just a gift, Draco, calm down.'
'What if it's cursed?'
'Is that really what you're worried about?' Pansy quirked an eyebrow at him and then asked, 'Who is it from?'
'I don't know,' he whispered and then showed where Potter had signed secret admirer.
She was getting restless so she took the box and opened it herself. Draco didn't stop her and seemed relieved that she took charge. He'd probably do the same for her on Christmas when she had to open the gift from Neville.
'It's Snitch,' Pansy said, confused. She realised that Potter couldn't really leave the school that day to get something, but one could usually owl order something in the afternoon and get it by the next morning. Especially if it was from Hogsmeade.
Draco took it from her as his ears turned a bit red. 'Do you suppose they're a Seeker?'
'You're a Seeker,' Pansy said with a laugh.
Draco looked pensive and then glanced back at Pansy with a frown.
'I'm sorry about the other day,' she said. 'I won't do it again. I wasn't thinking.' Draco hummed and then Pansy continued, 'I could really use your help picking out a gift for Neville.'
After a beat, Draco said, 'Well, clearly the place to start is a greenhouse.'
Later as Pansy followed Draco out to speak with Madam Sprout, it was lightly snowing. The snow swirled around them and then off to nowhere. It was very much like how her heart felt at the moment.
