Author's Note - Oh my goodness, I am so sorry everyone. (I am getting rather used to these apologies of lateness now. Oops). I would make another lame excuse as you are probably all expecting but alas: I do not have one. I am ashamed to admit that my absence has been out of pure laziness. Well I have been a bit busy but I still should have been able to write a chapter. If it wasn't for mah good friend Tina kicking me in the butt over and over I probably wouldn't have bothered. I am so glad she did (even if my butt is now red and sore). I can't believe how much I have missed this. I am so sorry for neglecting you guys. Please forgive me. I have made a website where I can let you know of the progress I am making in my chappies. It is . I don't actually know if I am allowed to give out the link but I guess I will find out soon. Oh and credit goes to Bonnie Tyler for the lyrics used in this chappie.

Disclaimer - My dream - To own all of the dvds in the world as well as owning Harry Potter. Unfortunately my dreams rarely come true and unless J K Rowling willingly hands over the rights of Harry Potter to me, I will never own it. I do hope to get those dvds though.


Zabini Manor

"IT'S HER, ADRIAN IT'S MIA!" Gabrielle screamed in delight wrapping both of her arms tightly around her husbands neck. Tears of joy seeped out of both of their eyes. Gabrielle loosened her hold on Adrian and collapsed into the armchair behind her. It was too much. How could such a small piece of parchment with a short letter on it make her so happy? Because it was Mia, she told herself. She could bearly contain her excitement.

"What do we do now?" She asked her husband breathlessly. Adrian, smiling profoundly, sat down opposite Gabrielle.

"Well we have this letter, but do we know who it is actually from? We only know that she goes by the name Hermione, she shares the same birthday as Blaise and her basic appearance. I reckon we should write to Dumbledore requesting to visit the school and tell Draco and Blaise of the news. They will then surely be able to tell us who she is."

Gabrielle nodded happily. She had waited almost 16 years to see her daughter. A couple of more hours couldn't hurt.

In The Great Hall

Hermione was walking in circles nervously like many other teenagers around her. She was in the waiting area for the auditions of the talent show. She felt sick with worry. She looked around herself. The Great Hall had been divided into two sections. On the half that Hermione was not in was the performance area. It was the waiting area. She looked around her. Everyone was staring at her. Boys, because they were gaping and girls because they were glaring. She shrugged it off and went to find Ginny. She found her in the corner of the hall, stretching.

"Hey Mione." Ginny greeted happily, standing up straight upon seeing her best girl mate approach. Hermione smiled. She didn't want to speak. She feared if she opened her mouth she would spew all over the place.

"You ready for this?" Ginny quizzed. Hermione cursed in her head. The damned girl needed to ask a question. Now she had no choice but to speak.

"Uhh, I hope so. Are you entering for anything other than opening act?"

"Nah. I'm no good at anything apart from dancing. Well what number are you? I think the numbers go up to 150 and after all of them have been called out they start on opening acts." Ginny replied. She was referring to the numbers each act had been given when they had entered the hall. Ginny and Hermione had been given opening act audition number 14.

"Oh, I'm audition act number 139 for the 10 performances."

"Well you had better be ready. They just called in act number 138."

"WHAT?!?!" Hermione gasped. She hadn't been paying attention to what numbers were being audition and called out. She had been too nervous to bother. Just a few mere moments after Ginny had told her, a voice boomed through the hall.

"Act 139 report to the performance area, I repeat act 139 report to the performance area." Hermione gulped and looked at Ginny who gave her a quick pat on the back and returned to stretching. Hanging her head, Hermione made her way to the performance area trying not to take any notice of the people watching her intensely as she passed. She walked through the larger door which led to the performance area where she could see Professor McGonagall, Professor Snape and Albus Dumbledore sitting. She walked to the middle of the floor in front of where the staff were seated at the table. She looked at them nervously. Dumbledore cleared his throat.

"Welcome Miss Granger. What will you be performing for us?" He asked merrily. Snape rolled his eyes.

"Um, I'll be singing a song." She replied nervously.

"Well duh. You're not going to sing a movie are you?" Snape muttered under his breath. He received a sharp elbow in the side from McGonagall who acted as iif nothing had happened when Snape glared at her. Hermione tried not to laugh at the Professors childish behaviour.

"When you are ready. Keep in mind that if you do happen to make it through that you do not need to sing the same song on the night." Dumbledore smiled. Hermione cleared her throat.

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming around
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears

She started off shakily.

Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart

Her voice began to project and turned into what all three teachers thought sounded more beautiful than any voice they had ever heard. Snape's eyes were so wide in the initial shock that one of his most annoying students could sing so wonderfully. So powerfully.

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

As she finished the excert of the song the three teachers clapped loudly. Well Dumbledore and McGonagall did. Snape clapped politely trying not to show his enthusiasm.

"Well done Miss Granger. Who knew you had as much talent in singing as you do in studying. If you are going to also audition for the slot of the openin act please go back through into the waiting room. I trust you know that there will be sheets posted up around the school first thing in the morning with results." McGonagall said. Hermione nodded blushing slightly and made her way back to the waiting room beaming.

Later That Night

After what had been a very eventful day, Hermione and inny collapsed into their beds. They had both performed a very energetic dance to Christina Aguilera Dirrty. It was now 7 PM and all auditions had finished. Hermione hadn't sen Harry or Ron all day due to auditions. She had wrote them a breif letter and owled it to them thanking them for their presents as well as sending one to every other member of the Weasley family thanking them for the lockt. Except for Ginny of course. She thanked her herself. She turned over on to her side on her bed to look at Ginny across from her.

"At least after those auditions we get a quiet night in." Ginny said as she looked over at Hermione grinning. If only she had known how wrong she was.
