THANK YOU HP_RULES FOR THE BANNER!!!Hermione doesn't want any trouble to happen with Harry and Ron.  She wants as many people safe as possible, even Draco Malfoy. And Draco doesn't want to be the kind of guy he was raised to be anymore. He first just wanted to live, now his only choice is to be dead to everyone. OVER 6600 READ! PLEASE READ AND REVIEW, it really helps me!!

Chapter 4: He was falling long and hard.

"Except me? Why me?" said Hermione.

"Well, I mean come on, do you actually think anyone else in this house will talk to me like you are?" said Malfoy. "Everyone else thinks I'm a little traitor, Death Eaters AND Aurors."

"Well, McGonagall....."

"McGonagall will probably only talk to me, not because she wants to, but to get information out from me or something, or just because it's the right thing to do. Or is that the reason you're talking to me?" said Malfoy raising an eyebrow.

"I don't know, maybe, I'm not sure. Right now I just want to talk to you, no reason really." said Hermione, with a serious look on her face.

"Do you now?" said Malfoy.

Then the door opened one more time and Remus Lupin came in, and said, "Hermione, no need to watch over Malfoy right now, you can come out now."

"See you Granger," said Malfoy, winking at her.

And Hermione followed Professor McGonagall out of the room, smiling.

For the next two days Hermione would bring Malfoy food and talk to him for a short time, but not about anything special, mostly to enjoy each others company. Harry and Ron started to question themselves on Hermione's kindness to Malfoy, but they just thought it was just her natural kindness she gives to everyone. But then Ginny for some reason thought to herself something way different, she had a very funny feeling that something was up, because everytime Hermione would came back for Malfoy's room she would have the biggest smile on her face.


Hermione was thinking all night, until she went to bed, and it was scaring her, because it was all about Malfoy, DRACO MALFOY. Hermione thought to herself, 'Okay, I understand that I saved him a couple of days ago and all, but it wasn't that bad, why can't I get him out of my mind? Then again, why was he talking to me that why, as if we were friends? We're not friends, we never were friends and never will be friends, I don't think, wait, what am I saying, of course I think that. But wait, hold on, why was I being so nice to him, wow, I actually felt sorry for Draco Malfoy. STOP IT HERMIONE, STOP IT! GET HIM OUT OF YOUR HEAD!'

Then again Malfoy, he couldn't sleep, not a wink, and not just because there were murderers out to get him. 'She saved me, HERMIONE GRANGER SAVED ME, why is bloody hell would she do that. I mean, the girl I called Mudblood for all these years, the girl I made fun of constantly for no apparent reason saved me, when she didn't have to, even want to for that matter. Hold on Draco, STOP IT! She's just a girl who was just being nice, that's all. But she was acting very friendly to me, and being friendly to me, even if I'm in this condition, it's quite unbelieveable. But I sure enjoyed that smile of hers.'


Hermione then walked into Malfoy's room, with a tray of food.

"Morning," said Hermione, "Mrs. Weasley made you some breakfast."

She set the tray on the foot of Malfoy's bed, "I brought it in, since Harry and Ron dont want to do it, and everyone else is getting ready for the wedding today."

"Oh, thanks," said Malfoy, who got up to grab a piece of toast.

"We'll be able to see the wedding from the window," said Hermione, "It's a beautiful view."

"Whatever," said Malfoy with a yawn.

"Sleepy?" said Hermione, sitting down on a chair next to the bed.

" Didn't sleep," said Malfoy.

"What? But you were quite sleepy yesterday, I would of thought you would of fell asleep right away last night."

"Well I didn't, I had too much stuff on my mind," said Malfoy, "So, about the wedding, what are you going to be in it?"

"Just one of the bride's maids," said Hermione, getting up to look out the window.

"Don't you have to get ready?" said Malfoy, "Because, doesn't it start soon, I heard that French girl screaming last night over and over again, 'I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M GETTING MARRIED ZO EARLY EN ZE MORNING, WHAT WAS I THEENKING!'

"Ha, yeah, I just wanted to bring you your food, that's all," said Hermione, "I'll come back and give you food from the resception later, Bye." And she left.

Malfoy sighed, and started to eat his scrambled eggs. Yet again, all he could think of was how nice Hermione was to him, 'I can't believe it, not one bit, no one that I can think of is being as nice to me as her. Then again, no one else is talking to me but her, she is unbelieveable. I can't believe I was mean to her, I mean, why would someone hate someone that beautiful and... wait, what am I saying, Granger? Beautiful? All she did was capture me and bring me here, why would I think she's beautiful after she did that? This is a punishment being stuck here, then again, it would be worse if she left me there in that stupid little park. If I think about it, I owe her my life, for now at least. She sure is just like Dumbledore, because for some stupid reason she sees good in me, and I don't get it, because not even I do.'

Three hours later the wedding began, Malfoy watch ever bit of it from his window. Hermione was right, the view was beautiful. But when Hermione walk down that white carpet, she was all Malfoy looked at. She was beautiful, with her hair done and in her silk bride's maid dress and......HOLD ON!!! 'STOP IT DRACO' thought Malfoy, 'STOP IT!! TELL YOURSELF SHE'S NOT BEAUTIFUL, TELL YOURSELF HER HAIR LOOKS HORRIBLE, SAY IT!!! YOU CAN"T BE FALLING FOR HERMIONE GRANGER OUT OF ALL PEOPLE!!! ONE NICE DEED SHOULDN'T MAKE ME FEEL THIS WAY. IT WAS JUST GRANGER BEING GRANGER!!! SLAP YOURSELF OUT OF IT DRACO!!! STOP IT NOW!'

But he couldn't, Malfoy was falling for Hermione Granger, He was falling long and hard.
