"So, you and Remus are going out? I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!" Lily squealed as she jumped up and down in the dormitory, making a few girls to eye her suspiciously. Hermione grabbed onto Lily, to make her bouncing stop.

"Bloody hell Lily, stop!" Hermione giggled as Lily smiled at Hermione.

"So when did this happen?" Lily whispered.

"Yesterday," Hermione whispered her back to the other girls in the dormitory.

"No way! Right after I left?!" Lily asked with a large smile on her face.

"No… right after James left," Hermione laughed, looking around with a slight blush gracing her cheek. "So enough about my love life time to talk about yours." Hermione laughed as they both sat down on her bed. "I personally think you need to give James a chance… I promise you will not regret it," Hermione smiled, knowing Lily defiantly wouldn’t regret it… considering her best friend was their son.

"I don’t know…" Lily faded away, looking around the room as if fighting with her own inner demons.

"Just think about it, OK?" Hermione asked, hugging Lily tightly.

"Sure… if you say so," Lily said hugging her back.

"Come on, I’m sure Remus is waiting for you!" Lily said pulling Hermione off her bed and pulling her down the stairs. They laughed as they entered the common room, and just as Lily had said Remus was leaning against the wall next to the door with his hands in his pockets.

"Good Morning ‘Mione," Remus said pulling her into his arms and kissing her cheek. Lily looked away a bit jealous, obviously thinking about James.

"C’mon Remus… I need to talk to you," Hermione said glancing back at Lily.

"Sure," he said leading her to a desk in the corner of the room, sitting in the chair. Hermione sat herself on the desk, glancing back at lily every few minutes.

"Look… Lily likes James… but I think she’s nervous about him hurting her," Hermione whispered leaning over so their faces were close, and Lily wouldn’t suspect anything.

"James would never hurt her, he loves her," Remus replied, looking slightly relieved.

"Yeah… it seems everyone but Lily sees that,’ Hermione said as Remus stood up, leaning closer to her with his hands on the desk beside her. Blocking her view of Lily.

"Sorry… if Lily knows what were talking about… well it won’t be good," Remus laughed, looking deeply into her eyes. Hermione placed her hand on his cheek, mostly because Lily needed to think they were… well, not talking.

"So… what can we do?" She asked Remus, who sighed deeply trying to think of a plan that might work.

"I don’t know… we’ve already tried just about everything."

"I talked to her… I asked her to consider James next time…"

"Lily… will you go out with me?"

"In your dreams, Potter," they heard from the other side of the room.

"Well, so much for that!" Hermione laughed rolling her eyes with her hands on her lap.

"Well, maybe we can set them up on a blind date," Remus proposed smiling.

"Yeah right… James won’t go on a blind date!" Hermione laughed while Remus placed his hand on the back of her neck, making a cold shiver move down her spine.

"James could know it was with Lily, and we could just not tell Lily it was James," Remus said, rubbing the back of her neck gently.

"That could actually work!" Hermione laughed, amazed she didn’t think of it first.

"You’re a genius!"

"Just call me the Matchmaker," Remus laughed moving his lips closer to Hermione once again. Hermione closed her eyes, leaning forward.

"Moony… can I talk to you?" James asked from behind them.

"In a minute Prongs," Remus said, not even shocked anymore by James’ perfect timing. James laughed and rolled his eyes as he walked away.

Hermione smiled lightly as Remus pressed his lips against hers, for someone so soft spoken he was a really good kisser. Or at least Hermione thought he was. She leaned into his kiss, wrapping her arms around his neck. Remus kept on hand on the table, and the other on the back of her neck, pulling her closer to him. When he pulled apart, Hermione giggled pushing his hair away from his eyes. He smiled as he looked into her deep chocolate colored eyes.

"Moony, can I talk to you now?" James asked growing a bit more impatient.

"Few more minutes, Prongs," Remus responded, smiling at Hermione with a needy gleam in his eyes. He pressed his lips against her once more, intending it to be just a quick kiss.

Hermione on the other hand had a better idea. She began kissing him deeper once again, something he couldn’t resist. His tongue explored her mouth as James scoffed behind them.

"You guys are just so damn… Argh!" James muttered with a jealous tone, crossing his arms over his chest. Finally Hermione pulled away, looking into his eyes.

"Go…you need to talk to him," Hermione laughed, pushing his hair behind his ear once more.

"Do I have to? It’s much more fun here," Remus stated with a sly smirk. Hermione slapped his arm, giving him a look as if to say I-Know-But-He-Needs-You kind of look Remus brushed his lips against hers once more. "Love you, ‘Mione," he said quickly.

"Love you too," she said with a smile as he offered her his hand to help her off the table. She took it, hoping off the table. "Sorry about the wait, James… he’s all yours now," Hermione laughed, making her way back over to Lily.

"What do you need, mate?" Remus asked with his mind still focused on the beautiful brunette James had just so rudely pulled him away from.

"Has Hermione ever talked to you about Lily?" James asked with a hopeful look in his eyes.

"Loads… in fact, I now something you may find interesting," Remus said with his hands in his pockets, laughing lightly.

"What, what, what?!" James begged, shaking Remus lightly.

"Cool it mate… well Lily actually does like you… but she’s afraid you’ll hurt her so we’ve come up with a plan!"
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"So, what were you two talking about?" Lily asked with a short laugh as Hermione walked back up to her.

"Who said we were talking?" Hermione giggled, not wanting to blow the secret to Lily.

"Hermione, I saw you talking…" Lily said with a small smirk.

"Well… Remus and I were thinking about hooking you up with this… Ravenclaw boy we met yesterday," Hermione said looking around quietly.

"But you said you wanted me to go with James," Lily said with her hands on her hips.

"I know… but this might help you realize how much you truly like James!" Hermione said with a smile, at least she wasn’t lying about that.

"What's his name?" Lily asked a bit intrigued.

"Well… it’s a blind date… he doesn’t know it’s you either,” Hermione laughed, looking around nervously.

"Are you sure we’ll get along?" Lily asked a bit worried, Hermione looked over to where Remus and James were deep in a conversation.

"Oh yeah… defiantly!" Hermione laughed, turning back to her smiling. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"Hermione… do you really like this outfit?" Lily asked nervously as she looked herself over in a full-length mirror that was hovering in the middle of the dormitory.

"It’s gorgeous!" Hermione said as she helped her get ready. She was wearing a dress that went down to her knee, and was a dark green. It was spaghetti strapped and very form fitting. She looked down at her shoes, smiling at the black-strap heals she was wearing. Her hair was down, in beautiful red curls. "You’ll knock him dead!" Hermione said smiling as she hugged Lily quickly.

"Really? I just wished you’d tell me who he was," Lily said looking down at her feet.

"You want me to describe him?" Hermione asked as Lily sat in one of the chairs.

"Oh please!" Lily begged, her eyes gleaming.

"OK, he’s tall… Pretty tan, he has dark hair, and he’s really handsome. He’s sweet, and kind, confident, and a very loyal friend," Hermione said smiling. Everything she said was true, it was just Lily who was too blinded by her hate for him to see that.

"Oh I can’t wait!" Lily said as she smiled at the ceiling.

"Well, you won’t have to! Let’s go!" Hermione said, as she looked at the clock, reading half-past six. Hermione was amazed how fast Halloween weekend had come, allowing the students to stay out a bit later if they were sixteen or older. Hermione walked her down the steps, smiling at her.

"OK, blindfold time!" Hermione said with a smile.

"What?" Lily asked shocked.

"Just trust me!" Hermione said placing the black cloth over Lily’s eyes.

"Now don’t say a word!" Hermione said as she watched James and Remus come down the steps. Remus had to remind James not to say a word, not that he could he was so in awe at the sight of her.

"Are we almost there?" Lily asked as they entered the great hall.

"Yes… OK, on the count of three, take the blind folds off," Remus said as he took hold of Hermione’s hand.

"One…" Hermione said as they both took a step back.

"Two…" Remus said taking another step back.

"Three!" They said in unison running away at top speed. They laughed as they rounded to corner, listening to what was going on.

"Potter?!" They heard Lily yell angrily.

"The one and only!" James said blushing a bit. "You look fantastic!" He said with a sweet tone.

"Thanks…" she said quietly.

"You’re welcome… come on we have reservations," James said steering her out of the Great Hall.

"I’m gunna kill her!" Hermione could have sworn she heard Lily mutter.

"So it worked!" Remus exclaimed, twirling Hermione around quickly.

"We rock! Even though tonight she will probably kill me in my sleep," Hermione laughed as Remus hugged her tight to him. "You wanna go to Hogsmeade now that our job is done?" Hermione asked as she flipped her hair away from her face.

"A round of Butterbeers my treat!" He said with a laugh as he wrapped his arm around her waist and led her out of the Great Hall.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"Hermione Jane Granger!" Lily yelled as she stormed into the dormitory.

"Yes hun?" Hermione asked meekly, afraid Lily was going to chew her out.

"I love you girl!" Lily shouted as she ran and threw her arms around her.

"You’d better!" Hermione mumbled softly.

"This has been the best night of my life! And all because of you and Remus! If I weren't afraid you might kill me, I could kiss you both!" Lily said dreamily as she fell backwards onto her bed.

"So, what was it like?" Hermione asked sitting beside her.

"OK, first it was… weird, you know? But he was so different… he treated me like a princess, it was wonderful! As we were walking back to Hogwarts it began to rain."

" I can tell!" Hermione stated at how soaked Lily’s hair and clothes were.

"Well, right there in the rain, he twirled me around, looked deep into my eyes and told me he loved me," Lily said with a dreamy expression on her face.

"Aww!" Hermione said with a deep sigh, thinking it was so horribly romantic.

"Well anyway… I couldn’t help it… it just slipped out." Lily said sitting up.

"Lily Marie Evans what exactly slipped out?" Hermione asked with a quirked brow.

"I said I loved him to!" Lily said causing Hermione to squeal.

"Well, then he kissed me, in the rain mind you… it was so passionate, so perfect… it was just… Oh my Gosh!” Lily said ringing out her hair and sighing.

"Then what?" Hermione asked hanging off this romantic fairy-tale like date.

"He asked me if I would go out with him… of course I said yes," Lily laughed sighing yet again.

"Oh Lily… I’m so happy for you!" Hermione said lunging forwards and hugging her, regardless to the fact she was soaked.

"Thank you so much Hermione! I can’t believe I didn’t see it before!" Lily said a tear falling down her cheek.

"You’re welcome… go get changed you’re soaking my bed!" Hermione commented pushing Lily off her bed.

"Hermione?"

"Yes?"

"You’re the best friend a girl could wish for!" Lily said turning and looking at Hermione with a large smile.

"You too, Lily," Hermione said smiling. She smiled as she looked up at the ceiling, there it was, she had just insured Harry’s future! She smiled as she walked down into the common room smiling. She found Remus by the fire.

She walked over to him, cuddling up in his muscular arms. "Well, Lily’s happy," Hermione said looking up into his golden eyes. Remus held her tight, resting his chin on top of her head.

"And James is acting like he’s on crack!" Remus laughed, breathing deeply.

"We did good didn’t we?" She laughed, resting her head on his chest.

"Damn good!" Remus agreed, feeling tired as she sunk into his arms. He looked down at her smiling, knowing she had already fallen asleep. Rather than waking her up, he conjured a blanket, draping it over both of them. Allowing sleep to grip him.
