Note: Drabble written for lillithium for holiday 2007.
When he was tiny, Draco had feared water, any water. He screamed when he was bathed: his nurse used cleaning charms on him until he was three. Then his father had a talk with him. Draco could not remember the precise words, but from that day on he protested no more.
He still disliked water, however. When the Triwizard champions disappeared into the lake he worked hard to repress the shudder of fear he experienced, imagining himself in their position. He stood, tense with an apprehension he refused to acknowledge, until one by one they reemerged, Harry last of all.
