"Draco you know how things have been.." But that was all the woman would say. Neither would she accept or deny his words. Only after this was over would she. It was the tugging on her sleeve that got her attention and grey eyes locked upon the child
Evelyn listened and looked up at him when he spoke. She swallowed slightly and looked over at his mother slightly.
Niamh ran back over to Draco and Evelyn pausing to look at narcissa a little closer. The little toddler tugged on the Malfoy matriarch's sleeve and waited for her to give her attention.
"Don't you think it's time we change that? I mean this time I want to be with someone of my choosing.. I know you didn't get that choice.. but do we truly have to keep to tradition?" The boy asked as his gaze stayed on his mother
She swallowed slightly and looked away playing with the claddagh ring that matched the one Draco was wearing. She felt like a giant knot twisted inside her stomach and her heart in her throat.
"In part that was what I was worried about. Though I am sure that Draco also explained that family staus has a lot to do with our choices as well." She commented as she was still keeping her gaze upon the pair.
"being a single mother or that my daughter already loves Draco as if he was her father?" She asked and looked away slightly. "I just want what's best for Niamh... And it actually makes me happy to know that she loves him. I love your son too... Without meaning to, the three of us have kind of become a little family... If you're worried about my lineage or my daughter's, we come from pure blood families..."
The look Narcissa gave was one that said she was not quite pleased with Draco and his words. "Draco we will be talking about this." The woman said quietly. She then looked to Evelyn, her head tilting faintly. "Tell me how does that make you feel?"
Evelyn looked up at him and shyly touched his hand. "My daughter, for some reason, hilariously claims him as her father... Her real father refuses to have anything to do with her... Which is why I've been trying to raise her by myself and working at night while going to school during the day..."
Oh this was really good. He could see his mother thinking over her words. "Mother most of that is the truth.. But the part she is leaving out is that I have fallrn in love with her. I don't want to keep to the arrangement that you and father had made." Well it was out in the open now. It kind of had to be
Evelyn swallowed slightly and thought of how to word her response. "He was my tutor... Snape assigned Draco to help me out with my classes because I was behind... And... At some point, Draco found out about my daughter and her being the reason I always turn things in late, I'm always sleeping in class and why I come home late or not at all..."
"So I assume that Draco isn't just choosing to spend time with you. So what exactly is going on between the two of you?" She was not one to beat around the bush
She nodded and looked around holding her daughter for a little longer before eventually having to set her down. She sat at the table as well and watched her daughter look around.
The boy nodded to her as she spoke her words. "I know..but I did figure you would at least like to know." He said quietly as he moved to the table in the room
Evelyn nodded understanding but was still worried. "Sorry..." She whispered to him and looked up at him. "Can't help being a worry wart... You know that..."
"The Three Broomsticks and a back room that isn"t usually open to the patrons. Mother pays Madam Rosemerta to keep it for when she wants it like now..." Draco said quietly as he fell into step beside the girl
