Hermione slid down the wall and pulled her knees up close to her and clutched the letter in her hand, unable to believe what she had just read. What was she going to tell Draco...
"Draco..." She said, tears welling up in her eyes and her throat constricting, "Im so sorry..." She wrapped her arms around her stomach and bent over and began sobbing into her knees. She heard the door slam open and someone kneel in front of her.
"Granger, what the hell?!" She heard Draco say, "Look at me." She refused to move. How could she possibly look him in the eyes and tell him... She couldn't... He would never forgive her...
He grabbed her face in his hands and lifted her face to make her look at him. Her eyes were red and tears were rolling down her cheeks.
"What happened? Tell me what happened, Granger!" Draco demanded, worry evident in his voice and eyes. How could she tell him...
"Im so sorry", She sobbed, shaking her head and trying to get him to let go of her.
"What're you sorry for?" He asked, moving closer to her, his eyes soft, "Tell me what happened..." She shook her head... He would hate her.
"You'll hate me", She cried, burying her face into her hands.
"Let me be the judge of that", Draco said. Suddenly he noticed the letter in her hand and reached his hand out to take it from her. She realized what he was doing and clutched it to her chest.
"No... please, no... you'll never forgive me..." She said.
"I'm going to find out eventually, don't you think?" He asked her, softly, "Let me see it." Her grip on the letter slackened and he pried it out of her fingers. His eyes went rapidly from left to right, reading it quickly. She put her face in her hands and began sobbing. She needed him... He was going to leave her... He wouldn't forgive her for this...
"Im sorry, Draco", She cried, "Im so sorry..." She froze when an arm came around her shoulders and she was pulled against a firm body. She looked up and saw Draco staring into space, holding her close with one arm and gripping the letter with his other hand.
"Im sorry", She cried, turning her face into his chest, "Im sorry..."
"Don't be", Draco whispered, putting his other arm around her and pulling her to face him. She buried her face into his shoulder.
"Your family will hate me... How can you not..." She sobbed.
"I dont hate you, this isn't your fault", He said, his voice getting stuck in his throat.
"There's a fifty perfect ch-chance our baby is going to be non-magical, Draco", She cried, "The Malfoys-"
"The Malfoys are just going to have to deal with it", He said, tears suddenly welling up in his eyes.
"Im sorry, Draco, Im so sorry. Im so-"
"Ssshh", He hushed her, rubbing her back comfortingly, "Stop apologizing..."
"Our baby will be perfect", Draco said, a tear escaping. Her wiped it away hastily with his sleeve, "Our baby will be fine, you hear me, Granger?" Her crying only got more hysterical and she gripped his shirt tightly, her arms around his torso.
"Why d-dont you hate me..." She sobbed.
"Why should I?" He asked, another few tears falling, "Its not your fault. And so what if she's not going to be magical? So what? She'll still be our daughter."
"She won't go to Hogwarts, she won't-"
"There's only a fifty percent chance", Draco interrupted her, "And so what if she won't go there. There are so many more muggle schools she can go to- we'll put her in the best..." He swallowed hard and tried blinking away the rest of the tears.
"You promise you don't hate me?" She choked out.
"I hate what's happening to us. But I don't hate our baby, I will never hate her. And I don't hate you. I will never hate you", Draco whispered, burying his face into her soft hair, "I will never hate you." She broke down into a fresh set of tears and he just held her.
"It's late, let's get you to bed", He said quietly after a few minutes. She nodded and he stood her up. He lead her to the bed and she sat at the edge while he rummaged through her wardrobe and brought out a lilac cotton decent nightgown. He handed it to her and turned around while she changed quickly, all in silence. Once she was done, she sat back down on the edge and Draco turned around when he heard the bed springs squeak a little.
He pulled his shirt off and exchanged it for a black t-shirt and his pants for grey pajamas. He went around the bed and moved towards her. He put his hands on her shoulders and gently brought her to lie down beside him on the bed. She shifted closer to him and put her left arm around his upper body. He slid his arm underneath her and around her waist, pulling her closer still.
"Please dont ever leave me", She choked out, her grip tightening around him, her head in the crook of his neck.
"Why would you think I will?" He asked, shutting his eyes tightly, still trying to keep the tears away.
"I was so scared when I read that letter... I thought you'd hate me for bringing in a non-magical member to the Malfoy family... Especially because she would be the first girl born directly into the family..." She said in an almost inaudible voice, "I was so scared you'd leave me..."
"I don't know how you could think such a thing", Draco said, shaking his head and then resting it against the top of her's, "Dont ever think something like that again. I'm never going to leave you. Thats where the story ends, you hear me?" She nodded and closed her eyes.
"I'm never going to leave any of the three of you", He said softly, kissing the top of her head, "Never."
