I have ideas but I don't want them to happen this soon ya know? Anywho- ENJOY!


Chapter Eight


I started to walk down to dinner, terrified at what it might be like. ‘Did Ron tell Harry and Ginny I’m friends with Malfoy now? Would Harry freak as much as Ron? Was Ron still mad? No, he tried to talk to me. I wonder what changed his mind so fast?’ I sighed and followed a group of second year Ravenclaws in. Ron, Harry and Ginny all gave me forced smiles. I walked over carefully. Ginny ran over and gave me a hug.

“OH Hermione!” She cried. “I have no idea how you must feel! Are you okay?” I shook her off and she sat down.

Ron didn’t say anything. I sat next to Harry confused. He pulled me into a huge hug.

“I’m here for anything. I know what you’re going through.” He told me.

“What?” I asked.

“Ron told us what happened to your parents.” Ginny explained.

“What?! Who?! How?!” I stuttered. ‘MALFOY!’ my mind screamed. “Never mind, I know.” I said turning and leaving the Great Hall. Once out of the doors I ran the whole way to the common room.

“Miss, Are you-“

“NIGHT!” I interrupted Sir Luke. He nodded and opened the door.

“DRACO MALFOY HOW DARE YOU!” I screamed barging into his room. He was sitting up in his bed, startled and confused.

“Whaaumm?” He mumbled.

“I can’t believe you.” I said sighing. I ran into my room and locked the door. I sat on my bed crying.

“Hermione!” Draco pounded at my door. I didn’t say anything or make any move to answer the door. After an hour I heard him leave the portrait hole. I cautiously went to see if he was in the common room. I didn’t see him then retreated back to my room. I locked the door and sat there thinking about my parents. I curled up on my bed and let all the tears I had been holding back, flow out uncontrolled. I heard someone move behind me. I didn’t even care to turn and look. I felt someone sit behind me on my bed then wrap their arms tightly around me. I turned to look at my intruder and my eyes met bright green ones, staring back at me exploding with concern.

“Harry” I whispered turning around and hugging him.

“I know” He whispered as I cried into his shoulder. He softly rocked me and rubber my back, calming me. We sat there for hours talking about our parents and different things. At 3 a.m. we were laying next to each other on my bed. I yawned.

“Wow, it’s late I should get back to my room.” Harry said.

“It’s too late, if you get caught you’re dead.” I told him. “Just sleep here.”

“You sure?” He asked. I nodded. I got up to wash my face and when I came back he was asleep . . . taking up my whole bed.

I went and peeked in Draco’s room. His room was pitch black and I figured he was asleep. I was just about to close the door when I heard him say “I’m awake, you can come in Hermione.”

I closed the door behind me and went and tried to sit on his bed, relying more on memory than sight. I sat on the edge of his bed.

“Been up with Potty all night?” He asked, sounding much closer than I thought he was.

“Yeah. Why in bloody hell did you tell Ron about my parents?” I asked.

“So you wouldn’t have to.” He explained simply, putting his hand on my knee.

“Where are you?” I whispered, following his arm to the rest of his body. I found him then wrapped my arms around his neck in a hug, half laying on him.

“Thanks.” I mumbled. “How come you’re not asleep?”

“Can’t seem to get there. But you’re not being too smart.” He said. I heard the smirk in his voice.

“How so?” I asked confused.

“It’s the middle of the night, and I’m wide awake, only in boxers. And you’re laying half on top of me, and scratching my arm with your nails.” He said.

I ran my fingers through his hair and touched my nose to his. “I could just sleep with Harry tonight.” I whispered.

“No way.” He said wrapping his arms around me.

“Can’t sleep without me huh?” I teased laying next to him.

He hugged me. “Not true.” He said.

“Jealous of Harry then are we?” I asked poking his stomach.

“Never.” He said stubbornly, tightening his abs. I smiled.

“Okay then Drakie.” I said mimicking Pansy.

I could feel Draco glare at me while I laid my head on his chest and curled up against him. He wrapped his arms tightly around me.

“He may be the Boy-Who-Just-Wouldn’t-Die but, he has to sleep alone at night.” I heard Draco whisper.

“And if you don’t be nice then you will be sleeping alone too.” I told him.

“What makes you think you’re the only girl I’ll actually sleep with?” He asked.

I rolled on top of him, leaning on his chest, looking him in the eyes.

“With every other girl its just shagging. With me it’s a friendship.” I said.

“Just because you’re head girl, it doesn’t mean that you know everything.” He told me.

“Just admit it.” I told him laughing.

He raised an eyebrow at me.

“You love me Drakie!” I mimicked Pansy again.

“Oh that’s it!” He said flipping me over then straddling my waist, holding my hands above my head. I smirked at him. The little bit of light in the room shone on him. Merlin, was he hot.

“What?” He asked looking down at me, caught off guard by my lack of attention.

“Just thinking” I said shaking my head.

“About what?” He whispered, putting his face closer to mine, pushing his body against me.

“Oh you know.” I smiled.

He raised an eyebrow.

“Yeah. That I should sleep on the couch.” I said catching him off guard, pushing him off me and he ended up on the floor. I grabbed the thick blanket off his bed and ran to the common room. I wrapped myself in it, breathing in deeply, still smelling him on it. I laid down on the couch as I heard step coming downstairs. I turned and saw Harry.

“Hey” He whispered walking over to me.

“You should go to bed you have Quidditch try-outs tomorrow.” I reminded him. He nodded and stood up.

“I’m just gonna get my cloak and go back to my room.” He told me.

I heard Draco come downstairs. “Damnit Granger, give me my bloody blanket.” He said. He stopped when he saw Harry.

“Can you handle him?” Harry asked. I nodded.

“Go to bed.” I told him. He ran up to my room and came back with his cloak, slipping through the door then putting it on as he left. I looked at Draco and laughed. He was in only boxers, his hair a mess and his cheeks slightly colored.

“I’m gonna kill you!” He said smiling and hoping over the couch to me.

“Shit.” I mumbled trying to run. I tripped over the blanket and fell right into his arms.

“Well well well.” He said holding me close.

“Let me go.” I told him. He smirked and laughed.

“You’re not getting away that easily.” He told me.

I turned and bit him as hard as I could on his shoulder.

“Mmm. Now my turn.” He whispered. I tried to look at him but he leaned in and softly bit my collarbone. I felt my knees go weak.

“No fair.” I mumbled into his neck. He softly bit my earlobe.

“It’s perfectly fair.” He said in a husky whisper. “And you started it.” He added smirking.

“Draco, its 4 a.m. Please just let me sleep.” I mumbled, my face still buried in his neck.

“Where do you want to sleep?” He asked letting me go.

I looked down at the couch. “That looks just perfect.” I mumbled.

Draco whispered a spell and the couch grew three feet wider. I laid down, wrapping myself tighter in his blanket. Draco stood over me and unwrapped me from the blanket.

“Oh you’re evil.” I growled at him, glaring.

He smirked. He laid down next to me, wrapping us both tightly in the blanket. I smiled and cuddled toward him, as he held me tightly. He put his forehead against mine, looking deep into my eyes. I got gooseflesh and felt so vulnerable. He smiled a genuine smile then kissed me on the tip of my nose. “Goodnight” He whispered.


A/N- Yeah I know. Kinda a "awe" ending.
