Pansy knocked on Draco's door, but he didn't answer. 'Draco,' she whined, but he still didn't answer. 'Come on, I'm sorry!'
She didn't say she was just playing around because she had been angry, but he clearly tampered with the drawing somehow. Still she shouldn't have hit him and she knew that. Her mother came out in her at the worst times, really.
It had only happened once before—her hitting Draco—but he didn't talk to her for weeks after it. She couldn't wait for weeks. Pansy needed her best friend to get through this Christmas, except she was not used to being the one making up to one of her friends. Presents wouldn't work on Draco. He never really enjoyed material objects as tokens of affection and he hated chocolate.
This called for drastic measures.
Pansy didn't have enough time to discreetly figure out who all got who to find out who had drew Potter's name. She had to go to the source; there was no other way.
It took her an hour before she found Potter in the Library with Granger and Weasley.
They all stared at her as she sat down in the vacant seat to Potter's left. Ignoring their shocked faces she took Potter's quill out of his hand and wrote across the top of his parchment.
Who'd you get in the drawing?
Rolling his eyes, Potter took back his quill and wrote: Katie Bell
Fancy asking her if she'd mind switching you with Anthony Goldstein?
'Why?' Potter said aloud and Granger glared at them both.
Suddenly a voice whispered just above Pansy's head, 'I don't see how that would work.'
Looking up she saw that girl-Weasley, Lovegood, and Neville had come to join their friends in the library. Just Pansy's luck.
'You should have fixed it before hand,' girl-Weasley continued. 'Besides, he'd know, wouldn't he? He already knows he drew Anthony Goldstein.'
Potter spoke again, thankfully in a whisper that time, 'Once again, why?'
'She probably wants you to trade gifts with Malfoy,' girl-Weasley answered.
'What?' Potter forgot to whisper again and stared at Pansy, who reluctantly nodded.
Pansy sighed and then quickly whispered, 'Look, I've made a mistake and need to make it up to him, he's horribly picky, and it was the only thing I could think of that might get him to talk to me before next spring comes around.'
'What are you fighting about?' Oh alright, Ginny said.
'What does it matter?'
'Tell me and I think I might have an idea that could help you.'
