Toxic @rubberduckiez
Falling For You

I’m addicted to you, don’t you know that you’re toxic?

Draco sighed heavily as he leaned against the island in his kitchen. He had been pacing around it for what felt like hours now, his mind in constant turmoil as the happiness from hearing Olivia say his name gave way to fear. Just because she was feeling something towards him didn’t mean that it would all turn out alright. This wasn’t a bloody fairy tale or one of those damn muggle films where everything faded to black after the two people confessed their love to each other and went off to live their happily ever after.

There was a reason stories ended before getting into all that shit. Happily ever after rarely happened in real life.

In fact, the look on her face when he had asked her why she had said his name told him that ever after very well might be anything but good.

It was clear now that she had thought Wood had been him. Had thought he was the one behind her. That didn’t necessarily mean that she had wanted him, though her voice had been full of desire. But perhaps she was just as intoxicated with him as he was with her.

However, what did any of this mean? How could they work together - do research together - if this was getting in the way? Was it even possible? They had nearly kissed the other night as it was. He was dreaming about her nearly every night. Fantasizing when he was awake. He couldn’t stop thinking about her.

Draco gripped the edge of the counter tightly, shaking his head. He needed to find a way to get over this. To stop thinking about her. To somehow flush his system of the toxin that was Olivia De Loughrey.

Maybe Blaise was right and it was time for him to leave the Ministry. Finally strike out on his own. But did he truly want to give up all the work he had down over the years because he couldn’t stop thinking with his dick?

A haggard laugh escaped his lips as he pushed off the island and walked over to pour himself a drink. He knew that it was more than that. This wasn’t simply wanting to fuck someone - otherwise he would have done so by now and been done with it. Olivia would have been out of his system long ago. No, this was something deeper. And that terrified him.

None of his relationships ever worked out and there was no guarantee that this would either. It was already so complicated.

He took a long drink and looked around his empty kitchen. His empty house. He heard faint laughter in his head, ghosts from that night coming back to haunt him. The way she had smiled at him. Laughed as he threw her over his shoulder to get upstairs. The way she said his name. The house hadn’t seemed so empty and dead with her here.

Then he saw her in the lab, her eyes lit up as they made another discovery. The look on her face when she told him about her past, laying her soul open before him. How he felt just being near her. That she made him feel alive in a way he had ever experienced before.

With another haggard sigh, Draco knew that it was going to take a lot more than a drink and quitting his job to get Olivia out of his head.

The door chimed, interrupting his thoughts. Scowling, he looked towards the corridor that led to the front door. If Blaise was here for another pep talk, he just might hex him. He leaned back against the counter, deciding he would let him try, but he wouldn’t answer. Eventually Blaise would give up and go away.

The door chimed again. And again. Blaise was determined tonight.

Finally, with a growl, Draco charged down the corridor, intent on letting his best friend have it.

“I’m not in the mood, Blaise,” he snapped as he pulled the door open. His eyes then widened as he froze.

It wasn’t Blaise standing on his doorstep, but rather Olivia. It was just like his fucking dream the other night. She was still in her work clothes, but her face was blotchy as though she had been crying for hours and her hair was a mess. But still, he couldn’t help but find her beautiful.

“Liv,” he said softly.

“Let me talk,” she said. He just nodded. He couldn’t speak right now if he wanted to. “I know that this is crazy and… we shouldn’t, but… God, I can’t stop thinking about you, Draco. And dreaming about you. And, fuck, I’ve never felt anything this intense before. And there are so many reasons why we shouldn’t do this - be together - but the one thing I know for certain is that I want you.” She stopped and took a deep breath, looking down at the ground, as though she was gathering her thoughts.

She then looked up and Draco felt his heart skip a beat, though it had been pounding since the moment he opened the door and saw her standing there. Her eyes were a vivid blue, but it wasn’t the color that had him entranced, a stirring starting up in his stomach.

It was the raw intensity in their depths.

“I want to be with you.”

He couldn’t move - couldn’t breathe - for a moment. Then he dropped his glass, hearing it shatter against the floor as he reached out and grabbed her arm, pulling her towards him slightly roughly.

“I want to be with you too,” he said before his lips crashed against hers.

Liv melted against his body as her arms snake around his waist and he brought his other hand up to cup her cheek. He was vaguely aware that they were moving back, stumbling slightly. He heard the door shut. For a moment, he wondered just how they were going to make it up to his bedroom like this, though he wasn’t sure if he could wait that long.

Just that one kiss had already made him harden.

It seemed Liv couldn’t either as he felt her hands on his chest, ripping at the buttons on his shirt while they continued moving, tugging it out of his trousers. His own hands were running up and down her body, grabbing, squeezing, soft moans coming from her as she managed to kick off her shoes.

They continued moving until they were finally in the den that overlooked his back garden. He pushed her back, the two of them panting for breath as they stared at each other. Liv then pushed him down on the sofa, crawling on top of him until she was straddling him, ripping the last few buttons off his shirt before running her fingers up and down his chest.

A growl sounded as he rolled his hips, making purchase with her heated core and he was grateful that she had worn a skirt that day. Olivia’s head fell back as her eyes closed a moment and she grinded her hips against his in return, her skirt now riding up around her waist.

“Fuck, Draco,” she hissed. “You have no idea how long I’ve been dreaming about this.”

“You and me both,” he replied, his voice deep with lust. She looked down at him, a coy smile playing across her lips. Draco reached up and ripped her blouse open, buttons flying everywhere.

“I liked that shirt,” she said.

“I can repair it or buy you another. You owe me one as well,” he replied, smirking up at her. He felt a shiver run through her body as she bit her lower lip. He gripped her waist a moment before sliding his hands up her torso until they were at her neck, lifting up from the sofa as he pulled her to him, kissing her slowly and passionately. One hand drifted down to her lacy bra, pulling her soft, supple breast out as he caressed her skin and then squeezed.

Liv moaned against his lips as her hips began moving, making him harder with each thrust as she tangled her fingers in his hair. He reached up into her hair, pulling her head back slightly roughly, forcing her to look into his eyes.

“The things you do to me, Liv,” he breathed. She grinned at him as she dragged her nails down his chest, causing the desire in him to swell to a near unbearable degree. His cock was now straining against his trousers and needed to feel her. Bury himself in her.

“Oh, I’m only getting started,” she purred before pushing him back down on the sofa.

A grin slid across his face as she bent over, kissing his chest. Draco weaved his fingers through her hair as she moved lower, her fingers now making quick work of his belt buckle and zipper. He looked down and met her eyes as she reached into his pants and pulled out his dick, stroking it.

Draco’s eyes nearly rolled back in his head as her fingers slowly moved up and down, squeezing with just the right amount of pressure.

“Fuck,” he groaned.

His eyes shot open as he felt her warm, wet lips on his head, gently sucking. He looked down, meeting her eyes as she took him into her mouth, her tongue swirling around his member.

“Merlin… Liv…” he panted as she started a slow, but steady rhythm, sucking as she pulled up, stroking what she couldn’t fit in her mouth. He pushed up with his hips, urging her to go faster. His eyes closed again as he moaned loudly. Of all the times he relived their first night together in his mind, it was nothing like right now.

He was starting to lose his mind, the only thing he could focus on was the delirious feeling of Liv sucking his cock.

Liv picked up her pace, taking more of him with each stroke. He was now thrusting up a bit more forcefully, his breathing uneven. But as much as he was enjoying this, he wanted to feel her walls around him. He knew she had to be just as hot as he was right now.

With a bit of reluctance, he pushed her off of him and sat up. He took her lips in a bruising kiss until he was on top of her, his hands groping at her breasts before he reached under her skirt and ripped her panties off. Without warning, he pushed inside her, both of them gasping in relief as he waited a moment, leaning his forehead against hers.

Once he had caught his breath, he pulled back and then thrusted back in. Liv arched her back, her hands grasping at his neck as she arched her back, her eyes closed as she smiled in ecstasy.

“Fuck, I’ve missed this,” she said, finally opening her eyes and meeting his, a wicked smile on her face. She rolled her hips up, matching him thrust for thrust. “No one makes me cum like you do.”

Draco could only smile before he kissed her, grunting as he continued to pound into her. Liv’s moans quickly graduated to yells as he felt her begin to clench around him, pushing him closer to his own release. As he felt her getting closer, he pulled back, wanting to watch as she came undone around him.

“Cum for me,” he whispered.

A smile filled her face as she wrapped her legs tighter around him and met his eyes. Draco’s pace became faster, more erratic as he chased his high, his hand sliding down until it found the bundle of nerves at her apex. Liv convulsed slightly as he began stroking it while he thrusted. His own body began shaking as he grew closer and closer.

“Oh, fuck… Draco… Draco…”

Liv’s mouth fell open in a noiseless scream as she arched up off the sofa, her walls closing tightly around him. With a moan, he felt himself pour into her as he continued thrusting, pleasure coursing through his body more intense than anything he had ever felt before.

Even more than that first night together.

Finally he stopped, collapsing on top of her as the only sound that filled the house was that of their haggard breathing. He could feel her heart beating against his chest. Draco propped himself up slightly, a lazy smile on his face as he gently kissed her.

Liv ran her fingers through his hair and then across his cheeks. Neither said anything a few moments, the both of them delirious in the aftermath of their orgasms. Liv then looked around the room.

“Nice den,” she said, meeting his eyes again. Draco chuckled softly.

“I had intended on giving you the tour before you left so suddenly last time,” he replied. A faint blush painted Liv’s cheeks.

“Yea, sorry about that…” she whispered. Draco kissed her again.

“And I was going to make you breakfast,” he said. Liv raised an eyebrow at him.

“I seriously missed out, didn’t I?” she said. Draco chuckled again as he got off her.

They looked a mess, their clothes wrinkled and half torn off. Though he was a bit knackered, just looking at Liv made his desire start burning up in him again. He stood, pulling her up with him as he started leading her towards the stairs.

“Again?” she asked slightly incredulously.

“Don’t you remember? Doesn’t take me that long to recover,” he quipped in return. Liv laughed as she squeezed his hand.

“Beginning to think we might need to take the day off tomorrow,” she said. Draco stopped and looked down at her.

“We can do that?” he asked.

“Perks to dating the boss,” she said lightly. Draco began to grin, liking the sound of that. Dating.

“Well then… we should make the most of tonight…”

~~~

Draco sighed as he fell back on his bed. Liv curled up to his side, her head resting on his shoulder, her arm stretching across his chest. He pushed her hair back from her face, leaning over to kiss her forehead.

“So… we should probably talk,” Liv started, not meeting his eyes. Draco looked up at the ceiling, his thoughts now turning to the obstacles standing in their way.

He didn’t want to think about it right now. He’d rather spend the night making love to her and not think about the fact they could get into serious trouble if anyone at the office found out about them.

“I could transfer,” he said. “Maybe if we weren’t working in the same office…”

“I’d still be in charge of overseeing your projects as long as you’re in potions research,” Liv said with a sigh. He looked down at her, seeing her brow furrowed. “I could… I could resign. I don’t need the money - really only took the job to get out of the U.S. and work with you. And we could still work together even if I’m not at the Ministry.”

It was an option, but at the same time, Draco knew that Liv loved her job. And she was doing a lot of good there. It didn’t seem fair that she should quit just so they could date.

“Or I could,” he said.

Liv looked up at him.

“But you love working in the department,” she said. “If I resigned, then you could take over. And we could still work on our research together.”

Draco studied her a few moments before kissing her forehead.

“We don’t have to worry about it right now,” he said softly.

“But we are going to need to figure something out. Sooner rather than later,” she replied. “And we definitely can’t let anyone know.”

“That’s obvious,” Draco said dryly. Liv sat up and looked down at him, the sheet falling from her body. For a moment, he was distracted by her gorgeous tits and nearly forgot what they were talking about.

“I’m serious, Draco. Until we figure out how to handle this, we can’t tell anyone. Not even Blaise and Theo. You know Blaise will make life hell for us and that will just make everyone suspicious,” she said sternly. As much as he wanted to argue with her, he knew it was true.

Blaise already enjoyed taking the mickey out of them as it was. It would only get worse if he knew they were finally together.

“I promise. This is just between you and I until we figure it out,” he said. Liv smiled and bent down, kissing him. “But don’t you think it might be a bit obvious if we both take the day off tomorrow?”

Liv thought about this a moment, then looked down at him.

“No, because we’ve been really good so far. I’ll send an owl to Alexa, telling her that I’m working from home - cold or something. Then you send word to Blaise that you’re recovering from some sort of potions accident - your choice. No one outside of Blaise even knows or suspects anything,” she said. “It’ll be fine.” She leaned down and kissed him again. “And then we can spend the day at mine, working on research.”

Draco couldn’t help but smile against her lips. While he was sure that it was the straightest way to get caught, he found that he didn’t care. He wanted nothing more than to spend the day with Liv, whether it was working on their research or spending the day in her bed.

“I suppose I’m convinced,” he said, conceding defeat. Liv grinned down at him.

“Good. Because you’re making breakfast in the morning,” she said, settling at his side again. Draco laughed as he pulled her closer.

“Just so long as you do that thing again,” he said, his voice low and lusty. Liv smirked at him.

“Oh, you continue to make me breakfast and I’ll do that every night,” she replied, her eyes flashing. Draco felt himself already stirring again.

Merlin, what she did to him.

He reached up and caressed her cheek gently.

“I love you,” he said without thinking. He then froze. He hadn’t meant to say that, but it just slipped out. And he couldn’t take it back. For a moment he worried, seeing her mouth drop open and eyes widen. Fuck, he had just ruined everything.

Her lips then curled up into a smile as she pressed a firm kiss against his lips.

“I love you too,” she whispered.

Despite everything that it had taken to get them to this moment, everything that they were going to have to go through, Draco knew in that moment, it was all worth it.
