Malyssa did not atten the Slug Club Christmas party, as she was busy studying for her N.E.W.Ts at the time. When Ron was hospitalized from drinking poisoned mead, she sat by his bedside until she figured it was alright for Hermione to sit with him alone.
After Draco was attacked by Harry with the spell Sectumsempra, she sat with him in the Hospital Wing for quite some time, only leaving when she told him he needed to get his sleep.
