A Talk With An Old Acquaintance
I looked up at the man; he was dressed in a grey sleeveless, you could tell that he worked out, for his abs we pressing against the shirt. He wore black jeans and shoes, with dark sunglasses. The man looked familiar, though I just couldnâ€™t place a name. â€œDo you I know you?â€ I asked him. He smirked and pulled the glasses off of his face. I gasped and Scorpius gave me a weird glance. Blaise Zabini took a seat across from me and Scorpius. I opened my mouth to say something, but the actual waiter came up to us. â€œHow can I help you?â€ she asked, sounding a bit annoyed. â€œUmâ€¦ Iâ€¦ I,â€ mind wouldnâ€™t let me form words, I was still in shock. â€œOne vanilla sundae and one large banana split?â€ Blaise said questioningly. I nodded, and the waitress walked away. â€œMommy, who is this man?â€ Scorpius asked me, not caring that Blaise was sitting right there. â€œOh forgive me; Iâ€™m Blaise your mommyâ€™s old friend.â€ Blaise told him, my brain clicked when he said friend. â€œWhat do you want Blaise,â€ I asked him. â€œOh thatâ€™s not a way to talk to an old friend,â€ he said. I glared at him. â€œOkâ€¦ Acquaintance, but I want to apologize,â€ he told me. I laughed out loud, â€œIt took you 5 years to apologize to me?â€ I asked him, my anger was starting to rise a little. â€œI know Adriana, itâ€™s just that when you sixth year was over you didnâ€™t return to seventh so I knew I would never see you again. I know you probably donâ€™t believe, but you really should, Iâ€™ve changed.â€ He said and I snorted. â€œNot the, Iâ€™ve changed speech please,â€ I asked him. He smirked, â€œI guess that is stupid, but do you forgive me?â€ he asked, his eyes staring into mine. I looked back at him, deep in thought. I didnâ€™t want to forgive Blaise, I wanted him to rot. But I knew that it was time for me to forgive those of my pastâ€¦. Well to forgive most, but definitely not all. â€œHere you go,â€ the waitress said, setting the ice cream down. â€œThank you,â€ I told her and she walked away. Scorpius started digging in immediately, though I was still eyeing Blaise down. I took in a deep breath, â€œFine, I forgive you Zabiniâ€¦. For now.â€ I told him with a small smile, picking up my spoon. He smiled back. When we finished the ice cream, which Blaise paid for, he took us to a park; Scorpius was sitting on my lap, fast asleep. â€œHow old is he?â€ Blaise asked, breaking the silence. â€œWell he is going to be six in three weeks.â€ I told him. Blaise perked up a bit at hearing that, â€œSo that means he is a Malfoy? No wonder he looked like him,â€ Blaise said. â€œMy son is a Smith, not a Malfoy,â€ I snarled. â€œDoes he know who his father is?â€ he asked me. â€œNo he does not, and I would like to keep it that way for as long as I can.â€ I told him. He nodded, â€œWhere do you live now?â€ he asked. â€œI live with the Weasleys,â€ I told him. â€œAh, why might I ask? What happened to your father?â€ he asked me. â€œI donâ€™t really want to talk about it,â€ I told him honestly. He nodded and didnâ€™t bring it back up. â€œWhy are you and Malfoy not together, though knowing Malfoy he probably didnâ€™t want the responsibility of taking care of a child,â€ he told me smirking. â€œActually, he was very supportive of his son. I broke up with him because he was unfaithful. He did not care at all about me or more importantly my child.â€ I told him, getting annoyed by the turn of our conversation. â€œItâ€™s his son as well,â€ Blaise felt the need to point out. â€œAs far as Iâ€™m concerned, he has no son.â€ I told him, my temper was starting to rise again. â€œOkay, okay I understand. So has anything interesting happened in these five years?â€ Blaise asked me. â€œWell, Ronâ€™s brother Bill, got married three years ago, and him and his wife had a baby girl. And remember Professor Lupin? Well he has a son, just a year younger than my Scorpius.â€ I told him, smiling down at Scorpius. â€œWhat about, how has life been treating you?â€ I asked him. â€œAs good as it could, considering the wizarding war that is going on. I must say that I am no sides, I chose to keep to myself now.â€ He told me. â€œThatâ€™s good... I guess, you know keeping to yourself. I would do that to, but with my precious little gift, I need all the people I can get,â€ I told him. â€œHe does seem like a special little boy,â€ Blaise said, observing Scorpius carefully. I looked down with him, â€œYeah, he special. As special as a child could get, actually my boy is very special indeedâ€¦ well from what I heard.â€ I told him. â€œAnd what is it that you have heard?â€ Blaise asked me. â€œUmâ€¦ I donâ€™t... I donâ€™t know,â€ I told him. â€œOh, câ€™mon Adriana, you can trust me.â€ he said, I cocked my eyebrow at that one. â€œOkay okay, I deserve that look. But Adriana, you said it yourself. Whatâ€™s in the past is in the past,â€ he told me. â€œYeah, but some things are very hard to forget,â€ I told him with a sigh. â€œAlright, Iâ€™ve learned that Scorpius is skilled with Legilimency and Occlumency,â€ I whispered. He perked up, â€œReally? So Iâ€™m guessing youâ€™re skilled in one?â€ he asked. â€œYes, my mother and I are Occlumens, and Scorpiusâ€™s father is a Legilimens,â€ I told him. He nodded it his head, â€œMight I ask why is it that you canâ€™t say Draco Malfoyâ€™s name,â€ he asked me. I sighed, suddenly getting tired of this conversation. â€œUm, itâ€™s getting late, I think itâ€™s time I get Scorpius home and into his bed,â€ I told him standing up, Scorpius in my arms. Blaise looked a bit disappointed, â€œOh, well it was nice talking to you today Adriana, very interesting things I learned about you,â€ he told me. I gave him a confused look, but he just smiled and walked away. I donâ€™t know why but I have a bad feeling about what just happened today. We arrived back to the Weasleysâ€™ and I set Scorpius down in his bed. I bent down and gave him a kiss on his forehead before retiring to my room. I huffed as fell on my bed. I took my shoes off, and threw them into the closet, causing a few things to fall. I walked over and began picking things up and putting them in there right place. I began to pick up one of my old school books, but something shiny caught my eye. I picked it up and sighed, it was the necklace Scorpiusâ€™s father gave me on Christmas five years ago. I stared at it, it hadnâ€™t glowed in four years, and it didnâ€™t seem the same. I didnâ€™t want to throw it out, no matter how many bad memories I got from looking at it. But as it may give me bad memories, it still made me reminisce over all the good ones. I put the necklace around my neck and laid down, silently hoping that its pair wasnâ€™t glowing right now.
