I sit in my office at work, looking at the list that I've made. I know what I want the manor to have in it, but I don't know how long I will have to have it built. I think Pansy and I should set a wedding date. This way I will know exactly what time frame I will have so that the manor will be complete by the day that we marry.

My mind keeps going back to the talk I had with Theo last Friday. I really don't know what made me change my mind about him, but I believe that having a cordial relationship will be easier on everyone than if we were trying to outdo one another every time we crossed paths.

Looking at the clock, I realize that it's 430 and even though it's early, I'm leaving for the day. Filing the parchment away, I leave my office and let my employees know that I leaving and that I'm not to be disturbed unless it's an emergency. Several minutes later, I am walking into Pansy's shop.

Pansy glances up briefly from where she is assisting a customer, but turns her attention back to the other witch after just a moment. They converse for another moment before the woman goes back to looking at a few other things. Pansy looks back and me and this time, approaches. "Good afternoon." She smirks.

"Good afternoon," I say, smirking back. "Your day is going well?"

"We've been busy. Though is time for the various holiday parties," she remarks, frowning slightly.

I wonder why she's frowning. Then I realize that she's thinking of her parents, more than likely. "Maybe we could do something special for Christmas, After all, it's the first one that we have spent together in over a year."

"What do you have in mind?" she asks.

"I don't know," I say honestly. I know that I will need to spend time with Mother. She would not be forgiving if I didn't. But I want to make my first true Christmas with Pansy memorable as well. It's true that we spent time together at Christmas when we were at Hogwarts, but this year is different. "What would you like to do? The sky is the limit." I hesitate, not sure how to broach the subject of spending time with my mother.

I can think of a number of things we could do. I often went to various parties. In fact, I had something every night for almost a month last year. I doubt that will be the case this year though.

"I was thinking about having a special promotion at the club to try and bring back business. Things have been slow since it reopened," he says quietly.

"On Christmas?" I ask.

He shakes his head. "Maybe the week before."

"You could have a special holiday weekend. A bit like the Yule Ball perhaps."

His eyes light up as he looks at me. "That is a great idea. But I didn't come here to talk work. What do you want to do for Christmas? Would you like to go away? We should spend some time with my mother," he says, looking at me to gauge my reaction.

"That is understandable." I think back to my parents and shake my head slightly. The holidays were full of talks about business, yet one can't help but think of their family during the holiday time.

He comes over to me and puts his arms around me, holding me to him for a moment. I notice that things have slowed down a bit in the shop as time draws near to dinner.

"Do you think you can leave for the night?" he asks, finally pulling away.

I nod. "Let me just take care of a few things."

"Very well," he says, looking around at the clothing in the shop while I finish up what I have to do.

It only takes a few minutes before I have everything taken care of. Penny Lyn and Isabelle said they would close the shop, leaving it open a bit later for anyone else who might come by. I bid them both a good evening and then turn to Draco. "Ready?"

"I'm ready," he says with a smirk. We head back to the flat and I can tell that he has something on his mind. "Pansy, I want you to know that I talked with Theo."

I frown. "Did you?" Didn't he believe me when I told him nothing happened? He said he trusted me. Now I have to wonder if he really does.

"It's not what you think. Theo and I used to be friends years ago. I believe we're going to try and regain that friendship."

I give him a questioning look. "Oh really?"

He nods. "I still am afraid that he's going to hurt you, so I want us to meet with Hannah and talk to her about going forward with the thing against your parents, if you still want to do it."

"So that I will have finances and will no longer have a partnership with Theo?" I question.

"No, but if he leaves you in a lurch like last time, or if you decide you want out, you won't have to worry about money. I won't make you do anything that you don't want to."

"The store is doing well," I remind him. My vault is not like it was before, but it is slowly growing.

"I know it is. Pansy, I don't want to get in an argument. I just wanted to be open with you about what I have been thinking about."

"And I am just assuring you that things are not as bleak as you seem to think."

This isn't the way I wanted this to go. I realize that the shop is doing well, but I know how quickly that can turn around. I decide to try and reason with her.

"Pansy, I believed that my club was doing well too. But because of my aunt, look at what has happened. Who is to say that she may not target you next?"

"The shop was already destroyed once."

"Yes, but," I pause, trying to think about how to say this, "Pansy, that was before and things are different now. Would it not make sense to have a backup plan if that happens again?"

She goes silent, clearly thinking this over.

"I know that you won't accept help from me, although I would be happy to give it to you. But if your store is attacked again, Pansy, it may end up being worse than last time and the damage that is done may be longer lasting. Your parents took money that was rightfully yours, and one thing that I have learned is that nothing is certain."

"That is true. Yet, I don't think that she will attack the store," she answers.

I sigh in exasperation. "I don't think she will either, but I also don't want to presume that I know my aunt's crazy mind."

"You can't understand those who are insane," she agrees.

"Will you think about going to talk to Hannah then?"

"Yes. We were going to do that at some point even if the club hadn't been attacked."

"Okay, we'll go and talk to her this coming week. Now, why don't we enjoy the rest of our evening?"

"Do you have something planned?" she asks, smirking.

"I'll show you exactly what I have in mind," I say, taking her in my arms and kissing her longly and deeply.
