A Letter of Gratitude

Updated: Oct 18, 2021

Dear Draco,

When I first saw you, I thought you were that person who would annoy the crap out of the main character and his friends. And well, you did. You didn’t make good first impressions at Madam Malkin’s, and Harry literally compared you to Dudley (don’t worry, you are way better than him). But as the years went by, I saw the real you. You were that kid who just wanted to be accepted on the inside, to be loved by everyone. You had that “pure-blood” tag on you, something which you didn’t want to live with. And because of this, you always tried to be in the spotlight, through any possible means.

Till the fifth year , I was pissed at you for always ruining the Golden Trio’s plans, but in the sixth year, I saw your vulnerable side- the side that you didn’t want to show the world. There were things that were not under your control, some things that you couldn’t be blamed for. Sometimes, we do things that we intended not to. But in the end, we ultimately do the right thing- and that’s what you taught me. You taught me to do the right thing, even if everybody else around me was wrong. You taught me that it’s never too late to change into a good human- no matter how horrid the conditions are. And in the end, you taught me that even the bad can be good- and for that I am grateful.

Much love,
