"Come on all I said was…"

"I heard what you said, Potter!"

"But you didn’t hear it all…"

"I HEARD ENOUGH!"

"Lily what's wrong?" Hermione asked as she steered the fuming red-head away from the common room. Hermione couldn’t help but smile; Lily reminded her so much of Ginny.

"Stupid Potter and his stupid friends!" Lily shouted, her face bright pink in rage. Hermione placed her arm around Lily’s shoulders, watching as a tear fell down her cheek.

"Lily, do you like James?” Hermione asked in a small voice, knowing the answer. Lily didn’t move at all, she acted as if she hadn’t heard Hermione at all.

"Only if you promise you won’t tell anyone," Lily finally said, taking in a long steadying breath.

"Why don’t you tell him that? You know he likes you!" Hermione said as they finally reached the library, sitting at a table in the back.

"Hermione… you don’t understand… it’s not like you and Remus…" Lily started, but Hermione cut her off.

"Remus and I? What? There’s nothing going on between us!" Hermione said defensively, shaking her finger. Lily sat back; glad she could bring the subject off herself.

"What? How can there be nothing going on between you two? You’re like joined at the hip!" Lily said as she smirked subtly. "I mean, your both Were-" Lily caught herself, not knowing Hermione knew already.

"We’re both what?" Hermione asked with a quirked brow.

"Hermione… Remus is a Werewolf too," Lily said looking away, thinking she had just let out Remus secret.

"I know," Hermione said simply, looking around from table to table.

"You knew?" Lily asked looking at Hermione puzzled, thinking Remus wouldn’t tell an almost stranger his deepest secret.

"Of course… that’s why I was sent back…" Hermione started but caught herself.

"Back where?" Lily asked leaning on the table.

"Nothing, Lily… I said the wrong thing," Hermione said her eyes shifting around nervously.

"Hermione… what aren’t telling me?" Lily asked her with a curious look in her eyes.

"Nothing, Lily. Come on, let’s go to lunch," Hermione stated, wanting to get out of there as fast as humanly possible. Lily grabbed Hermione’s arm, knowing there must have been more to the story.

"Hermione! Come on, you can tell me anything!" Lily begged, pulling at Hermione sleeve.

"No. I can’t,” Hermione whispered to herself, looking at the ground. Lily raised an eyebrow at her and Hermione gave in.

“I was sent back to Hogwarts! I was here in my first year, and then I left," Hermione lied, hoping it would satisfy Lily.

"Umm hmm," Lily responded with her hands on her hips. Hermione’s ears turned red, she wasn’t used to lying and she didn’t like it much.

"Come on, I’m hungry." Hermione lied again; boy did she hate this feeling. They walked out of the Library silently, as if both too deep in thought.

Something going on between Remus and me?! That’s crazy! I mean… I’m not even in my right time… but on the other hand… NO! Stop this, Hermione… there is NO other hand! Hermione thought as she clutched her books to her chest, feeling confusion taking over her as she fought with herself. Or is there?

"Hey ladies!" Sirius said, laughing, as he approached the two girls.

"Hey Sirius," Hermione smiled, Lily on the other hand ignored him.

"What's her problem?" Sirius whispered to Hermione, making her shrug. "Does it have to do with James?" He asked only loud enough for her to hear.

"Yeah… I don’t know anything else though…that was all I could get out of her," Hermione whispered back, unaware of the angry eyes behind them. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Remus clutched his fists at his side as he watched Hermione and Sirius whispering back and forth. He gritted his teeth, completely oblivious to why he was so jealous. They way Hermione’s hair moved as Sirius whispered in her ear infuriated him to no end. He walked up to them, grabbed Sirius by the arm and silently led him away. "What the hell were you two whispering about?!" He howled in the empty corridor they now occupied.

"What?" Sirius asked confused, as he watched his friend fume.

"What were you two…? YOU HEARD ME PADFOOT!" Remus yelled, feeling his face redden with anger.

"Mate… calm down I was asking her why Lily was so ticked off," Sirius said with a worried tone in his voice, putting his hands up.

"Then why were you whispering?!" Remus asked mockingly.

"Because Lily was right there!" Sirius said as if it were the simplest thing in the world. He watched the fight drain form Remus’ face as he loosened up.

"Mate, I’m so sorry… I don’t know what came over me," Remus said, looking at the ground a bit ashamed.

Sirius leaned against the wall, smirking slyly. "I do… you’re Werewolf-ness kicked in and you got all… territorial!" Sirius laughed, flipping his hair back.

"What?!" Remus asked as if he had just heard the most amusing joke of his life.

"You heard my, Moony," Sirius said, repeating what Remus had said to him.

"Hermione is a person… not territory!" Remus said defensively.

"Hey! You’re the one flipping out about her talking to another guy… not me!" Sirius laughed looking at him mischievously.

"Sirius, are you on drugs?” Remus asked with a quirked brow, not wanting Sirius to know the truth.

"Nope! Refuse to take them!" Sirius laughed looking at him intently. "Face it mate, you fancy her," Sirius laughed.

"Do not," Remus said, looking at the ground again.

"Knew you did!" Sirius laughed. "The question is why? She gets a bit annoying when she’s always bugging us to study. She is pretty but there are loads of…" Sirius started but Remus cut him off by gripping his neck and lifting him off the ground.

"Don’t. You. Dare. Say. Anything. About. Her!" Remus barked; anger in his eyes. Sirius shivered, Remus had never lost his temper like this.

"REMUS! PUT HIM DOWN!" A voice said as its hands gripped his arm. Remus felt soothed at their touch, looking down to see Hermione staring at him, shocked. He quickly let go of Sirius, allowing him to fall to the ground.

"Hermione… umm…" Remus faded away rubbing his neck, not sure how to explain why he was choking his best friend.

"Remus… what was that all about?" Hermione asked in a rushed voice.

"Well… Moony here got all defensive about you," Sirius coughed, getting to his feet.

"Why?" Hermione asked with a quirked brow. "Sirius… what did you say about me?" Hermione asked as she glared at him suspiciously.

"Don’t change the subject this is about you two!" Sirius said backing away, before they even noticed Sirius was gone completely.

"Remus, what did he say that got you so mad?" Hermione asked looking at him puzzled.

"He… he insulted you… I don’t know if he meant to… he’s just like that," Remus said looking deeply into her deep chocolate brown eyes. He trembled as he felt the temptation yet again. The temptation to hold her in his arms. The temptation to kiss her so fiercely, yet so affectionately. The temptation to make her, his.

He looked down at her hands, wishing he could just reach out and grab them. They were so close, yet so far. He licked his lips as the hunger grew, tracing his eyes back to meet hers. As he looked into her eyes, he noticed the same hunger in them.

"Hermione?" He asked shakily, feeling and overwhelming flutter in his chest.

"Yes?" She asked in almost the same manner.

"Do you… can I… would you…?" He searched for the words, not knowing what to say. Suddenly he felt her finger tip on his lips, making his stuttering stop. He looked down at her as she got on her toes and replaced her finger with her lips. His heart began to beat faster and faster as their flesh collided almost too quickly.

She pulled apart slightly, looking at him again with hunger and lust. He placed his hands on her hips, moving in closer. Just as their lips were about to collide again their world was shattered by a quite annoying voice from their perspective.

"Oi! Remus, Hermi…" James said as he stepped into the corridor, noticing their close predicament. "Oh…Uh," he said rubbing the back of his neck as Hermione and Remus stood there shocked, still wrapped in each other’s arms.

"Damn him!" Hermione heard Remus mumble to himself, making her step away and clear her throat. "Well…"Remus said running his fingers threw his hair.

"Don’t worry mate, this is our little secret!" James laughed, walking away as he played with his snitch. Remus turned to look at Hermione, who blushed and walked out of the corridor. With a grunt he followed her out; making his way to the Great Hall… maybe some food would help settle him flipping stomach.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Hermione pushed the food around her plate, not as hungry as she was when she had left the Library. I can’t have feelings for him… I can’t! If I do it’s just asking for pain! Remember at the end of the year Dumbledore is coming, and then this will be only a memory, Hermione thought as she looked up at Remus, who was pushing his food around his plate in the same dreamy yet confused manor.

Then again they say to live life to the fullest, but it can get no where, soon you’ll be sent to the future, and the Remus there won’t remember you romantically, she thought with a grunt as she stabbed a piece of beef with her fork.

Maybe I could beg to stay, that’s not fair to Harry and Ron though…They need me to help fight in the war…But by the time I get there the war might be over…What if Dumbledore never comes? Hermione thought with a small smile.

If Dumbledore never comes… this Dumbledore will probably send me back with some potion… or giant time-turner. Hermione rested her head in her hands, too confused to even move.

"Hermione, are you alright?" Lily asked as she patted Hermione’s back.

"I’m fine… I’ve just got a bit of a headache… I think I’ll go lie down," Hermione said as she stood up, ready to leave.

"I’ll walk you back," Remus said standing up also.

"No! I’ll be fine," Hermione said looking away so they wouldn’t notice the blush that had consumed her cheeks.

"I was ready to head up anyway," Remus said motioning her to follow him. She sighed as she walked out of the Great Hall. They walked in silence; until they reached the corridor where James had shaken them from what they felt was a dream.

"Hermione, I need to talk to you…" Remus said grabbing her elbow, leading her into a secluded corridor he thought no one would go down this time of night.

"About?" Hermione asked with a worried tone.

"About… earlier," Remus said looking at her with his golden eyes gleaming.

"Oh…" Hermione said looking around, feeling it impossible to meet his eyes.

"I’m sorry about… well… you know," Remus said placing his hands in his pockets, rocking on his feet nervously. Hermione laughed, looking at him with teary eyes.

"You must remember who kissed whom," she said as a tear fell down her cheek. Remus hurried over, brushing it away as if by instinct.

"Well… I’m sorry," Remus said looking at her, his hand still on her cheek. He quickly pulled away, scolding himself mentally.

"For what?" Hermione asked with a scared tone. Praying he wouldn’t say he really had no feelings for her, and just tried to kiss her for no reason. Remus laughed, looking at her with almost sad eyes.

"I… I don’t know why… listen Hermione… I have never felt like that before I met you… I felt…"

"… Like you were actually human?" Hermione finished for him, looking into his sparkling eyes.

"Yes!" Remus exclaimed, stepping closer to her. "And I liked it… a lot," Remus stated, placing his hand on her cheek, bringing her closer to him.

"I liked it to…" Hermione said, tilting her head to the side. Suddenly her mind caught up with her racing heart, making her remember she was only here temporarily. "But, Remus… I can’t," she said before pulling away from him, and racing towards the common room at top speed.
