What happens when you love someone who is in love with someone else? Sometimes two out of three ain't bad but sometimes it just isn't enough.

Chapter 1: Good-Bye

A/N~ Hello! Well, I heard this song today and I had to make it a story. I have loved it forever and today it just clicked as a HP FanFic. Now, in the books I hate the Draco/Hermione Ship but in Fan Fic land, I am starting to like it! Anywho, I hope you enjoy and please R&R
The song is “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” By Meatloaf (Totally, an oldie but goodie!)

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere

“Pansy, we can’t do this any more! We haven’t been happy for a long time. You know that and so do I! I can’t stay here anymore. I am sorry”

“Why! I love you! Draco, why can’t you love me? I have done everything thing I possible can to make you love me! From the first time I saw you, you have had my heart. I want us to work.”

“I wanted us to work, too. I just can’t force it anymore.”

I told you everything I possibly can
There’s nothing left inside of here

Draco walk to the dresser and started to take his clothes out. Pansy raced over to him pulling the clothes out of his hand and threw them back in the drawer.

“You can’t leave me! Please! What would I do without you?”

“Find someone who can love you with all their heart. I can’t. God, I have tried.”

She fell to the floor crying.

And maybe you can cry all night
But that’ll never change the way that I feel

Continuing to pack his things, Draco turned to his ex-fiancée. “Pansy, I am going to stay in the guest room tonight. Tomorrow, I will look for a place or just stay with my mother. Either way me and the rest of my stuff will be gone by tomorrow night.”

“You can’t do this to me! If you want to leave me, you can leave now.”


The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn’t make me leave here

She took the ring she been wearing for six months off and threw it at Draco.

“Maybe it is for the best. It's better we do this now, before we would’ve gotten married and realized it was a mistake.”

“Draco, how can you stand there and stay that this is for the best.”

I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I’m tired of words and I’m too hoarse to shout

“I am sorry. But what do you want me to say or do!?! I have tried my best but that is not good enough for me or you. How can I marry you, if I don’t love you. Why would you want to be with me, if I don’t love you!”

“Why? Why, can’t you love me?”

But you’ve been cold to me so long
I’m crying icicles instead of tears

“Do you really love me?”

“Of course, I do!!!”

“Do you really? Honestly?”

“I always have…”

And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you
I need you
But -- there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
cause two out of three ain’t bad
Now don’t be sad
cause two out of three ain’t bad

“I'm sorry, I truely am. My life would be so much easier, if it was you who had my heart. As we both know life isn’t that fair.”

You’ll never find your gold on a sandy beach

“What about our families?” Draco just looked at her as the tears started to form in her eyes again.

You’ll never drill for oil on a city street

Pansy started to fight the tears, “What about our plans, you were as happy as I was.”

Draco sighed

I know you’re looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks

“How can you say you never loved me, you gave me that ring of your own free will. You care about me enough to move in together! You were happy enough to make love to me over and over again! Or was I just your whore!!!” As she said this the anger took ahold of her. She started to throw things across the room.

But there ain’t no Coupe de Ville hiding at the bottom of a cracker jack box

Draco runs to try to stop her, “You weren’t a whore. I don’t know what to say to save you from the pain. I am only a man.”

“The only thing you can do is tell me, that is this some nightmare and you realy do love me.”

I cant lie
I cant tell you that I’m something I’m not

“I am sorry, I can’t.”

“Is their another woman?”

No matter how I try
I’ll never be able
To give you something
Something that I just haven’t got


“Who is she? Who is holding your heart so tight, that you can‘t love me?”

There’s only one girl that I will ever love


And that was so many years ago

“What! You broke up THREE years ago! And the last I heard, the mudblood was married to the Weasel!!!”

And though I know I’ll never get her out of my heart

“They have been married for two and they just had a son, I believe.”

She never loved me back
Ooh I know

Pansy was in shock. “Then, why are you leaving me? I love you! She doesn’t! You, youeself, has told me she doesn't love you, before!”

“I have to go. I can’t live a lie. I rather be alone. I believe, this is my punishment for doing all the terrible things I have done in my life.”


I remember how she left me on a stormy night

“Herm, come to bed.”

“Draco, I need to talk to you.” He could see the worry on her face.

“Baby, you know you can tell me anything.”

“I know, it is just I know you are not going to like what I have to say.”

“You are scaring me, what is up?”

She kissed me and got out of our bed

“You know that I had lunch with Harry today right?”

“Yeah, I know you and Potter are still good friends. I may not like him but I am not going to stop you from seeing him, he is your best friend.”

“Well Ron was there, too.”

“Oh.” Hermione watched Draco face harden. “How is the Weas- Ron?”

“Well, he broke up with Lavender. He realized that she isn’t the one for him.”

“Why do I get the feeling that he told you, that he still love you?”

“Because he did. He is sorry that he ever broke-up with me. He wants us to get back together, he believe we could have a real chance at the Happily Ever After we always wanted.”

Tears were forming in both their eyes. “And you told him?”

“I would think about it.”

And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door

"And truthly, Draco, that is want I want in my heart.

“Please. Please. Please, don’t tell me that you are leaving me! Please don't tell me that you are leaving me for Ron Weasely! Hermione, I love you with all my heart.”

“I am sorry, Draco, but he still has mine. He always has and always will. I am more sorry than you can know, but it isn’t fair to you if we stayed together. If I can’t give you my full heart, you should find someone who can love you back, I just can’t.”

She packed her bags and turned right away

All Draco could say was “Hermione, please, I love you.”, as she walked out of his life.

*End Of Flashback*

“Pansy, I wish I could love you. But like Hermione told me…”

“I don’t care what that mudblood said!”

And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
I want you
I need you
But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you

“Don’t call her that and listen to me: I want you, I need you but there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you. I am sorry…”

Pansy just started to cry.

Now don’t be sad
‘cause two out of three ain’t bad

“…Baby, don’t be sad, ‘cause two out of three ain’t bad.”

I want you
I need you
But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
cause two out of three ain’t bad
Don’t be sad
cause two out of three ain’t bad

“Draco, please, I love you…”

“Good-bye, Pansy.”

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere
