Chapter 7:Civilized, Making Out and Returning

They emerged from the library, chatting at random. Draco decided that this would be the best time to ask Hermione out. He thoght about kissing her again, but decided against it. Asking’s the best he thought silently.

“Hermione, can you go out with me?”

Hermiones facial expression turned suddenly very alarmed. I don’t think so Draco thought bitterly.

“Er, Draco, I highly think that this isn’t exactly the time to talk about this.”

“Er, okay. Im sorry.”

They walked back to Hermione’s dorm in awkward silence. Before Draco and Hermione even reached the Great Hall, the world was turned upside down.

“What the hell!”

“Don’t panic! Harry told me about something like this after he competed in the third task of the Tournament. Just take a step forwards and I think it would be alright. I’ll try first.”

Hermione took one step forward, and Hermione suddenly was standing the right way, but to Draco, she was upside down. Draco placed one foot in front of him, and he landed on a heap on top of Hermione.

“I’m so sorry! I didn’t know that’ll happen!”

“No need to be sorry Hermione.”

She tried to push him off her, but he slipped on something slimy on the ground; and their lips banged against each other. Draco finally he managed to stand up again, and he helped Hermione up.

“Whew! Thank Draco.”

“No need.”

“I think, Peeves, you can come out now,” Hermione said angrily.

Cackling, Peeves zoomed out from behind a suit of armour, and flew off, still cackling.

“I really wish that he can disappear,” Hermione said sadly. “Um, now that we’ve got him out of the way, I’ve got to go and reply Harry’s letter. Well, bye!”

“Bye!” Draco tried his best to sound cheerful, but he knew he was failing greatly with his plan. “Granger’s too hard. No one has ever rejected me,” he said silently to himself.


“You seem to be in a right fix Dracol,” Blaise was looking at him, smirking. “Or have you just no been trying?”

“Shut up.” Draco hated Blaise when he said he wasn’t trying.

Draco went back to his dormitory and sat on his bed. That mudblood, will be the first, and last person to reject me. I swear I will make her say yes.


Hermione was sitting on her bed, staring into space, unbelieving what Draco had said. She rejected him straight away, but now when she thought back at the matter, Hermione realised that she was regretting it. Draco was slowly becoming nicer, and he hadn’t called her mudblood, or even Granger, for two months.

Hermione, will you go out with me? Will you go out with me? Hermione said this through over and over and over in her head.

She finally made up her mind. She stood up and yanked open the door, slightly harder than normal. She crawled through the portrait, and bumped straight into Draco.

“Oh! Hi! I was just coming to find you Draco. I need to tell you something.”

“Hey! Me too!”

“ You can go first.”

“No! No! You can go first!”

“Are you sure?”

“Yeah! Sure!”

“Um, I just wanted to say,” Hermione’s face was bright pink. I just wanted to say…… I just wanted to say, that I agree to go out with you.” Hermione’s face turned bright red. “ Er, what did you want to say?”

“Um, I think you’ve just answered what I was going to ask.”

“Oh! Um……”

There was a pregnant pause between them.

“Um……” Hermione broke the silence betweenthem. “I just wanted to do something.”

Hermione stood up on her toes, and kissed Draco on the lips.


“Hermione, why do you always hang out in the library?”

Draco was swinging on one of the chairs in the library, apparently bored.

“Books on’t bite you know. You can learn everything.”

“I’m surprised you haven’t read the whole library. You’ve been readig since the first day you came to this school.”

“Here’s another person who hasn’t read Hogwarts: A History . If you’ve even bothered to read Hogwarts: A History , you will know that the Hogwarts library can never be read entirely by any student. Just say, someone read the whole library, it will refill itself with books. Hey! Where are you going?”

“Getting something.”

Draco returned a short while later with a book in his hands.

“Yep, exact wordings. I really admire you. How do you memorise these passages?”

“I just do, I don’t know how I do it.”


Hermione and Draco were sitting together at the Gryffindor table, receiving a lot of surprised looks fom some people. Though they have been doing this for some time, a lot of people still stared at them. Especially the seventh years they knew the hatred going on between the two for the past six years.

“Draco, have you ever wondered what we are going to do when everyone comes back tommorow?”

“Well, seeing that everyone whose stayed for the Christmas holidays, has seen us like this, I say we just go on.”

“But what’s Harry, Ron and Ginny going to say? They’ll freak out!”

“Fine, how about we still act like enemies, but we can secretly meet at night.”

“What about the people who stayed for Christmas? What will we say?”

“I’ll have to be really rude to you Hermione. I’m sorry.”

“I guess,” sighed Hermione.

“You need to make sure Potter never catches you when you’re coming out to me at night.”

“I never said I’ll meet youat night.”

Hermione burst out laughing at Draco’s face.

“Honestly, you’re the serious one now Draco.”

“Since when, have you started to joke?

“Hmm… let’s think, since I started going out with you.”


“Harry! Ron! Ginny!”

Hermione was running across the platform of Hogsmeade Station. She flung her arms across Harry, before giving Ron and Ginny a hug too.

“How have you been? I’ve missed you guys so much!”

“Me too Hermione. Has Malfoy been bothering you?”


“That’s good! Very good!” piped up Ron.

“But what if I say I’m ging out with him?”

Hermione doubled up with laughter at the sight of their faces.

“Come on guys! Can’t you guys even take in a joke?” Hermione looked around at them, their exressions were very anxious. “What’s up?”

“Nothing. It’s just that I haven’t heard you joke for six years.”

“Well I guess times change. Come on, I need a laugh as well.”

“Come on guys, we’re blocking the traffic,” said Ginny.

“It’s great to be back,” said Harry.

“I think I can see Lavender! See you guys later!”

“Honestly, he’s getting too enthusiastic!”

“Come on, we need to put down our trunk.”

“See you guys in the Great Hall!”

Ginny walked towards the stairs, while Hermione and Harry walked through the Great Hall, chatting feverently.

“How was your holidays Harry?”

“Great! It was excellent!”

“Excuse me! Coming through!” A familiar voice echoed around the Great Hall. Hermione and Harry whipped around and saw……

“Elaine!” Hermione squeeled and ran towards Elaine Ebonsky- a former student ofHogwarts. She was in her final year when Hermione started her second year. She only knew Elaine because she was one of the helpers for Madame Pomfrey, and she was the one helping Hermione after she was ‘unpetrified’. So after a while, they became really good friends. Hermione finally got to Elaine. “What are you doing here?”

“Have you wandered what you were going to do for the rest of the year without a Arithmancy teacher?” replied Elaine, grinning.

“Are you teaching Arithmancy? Oh my god! That’s awesome!”

“Hermione, calm down,” Hermione jumped, she had forgotton totally that Harry was still standing there.

“Harry! I need to introduce you to my friend from our second year. She was the girl helping me after I was ‘unpetrified’. Her name is Elaine Ebonsky.”


“Hello! No need to ask who you are! Plesure in meeting you, Harry Potter!”
