Blaise stood at the doorway with an angry look on his face. “Blaise! You scared the hell out of me. I thought you were harr—Blaise what are you doing?” Hermione asked. Blaise had quickly walked over to the bed and picked Hermione up bridal style and was now heading towards the door. When he reached it he let her down and shut the door. Hermione stood out in the hall and leaned against the wall. She heard muffled yelling and sighed.

(Inside Hermione’s room)

Draco jumped out of the bed and started walking towards his shirt. He stopped short when Blaise spoke. “What did you do to her Draco?” He asked his voice dripping with venom. “Nothing Blaise, I did nothing to her.” He answered. Blaise pulled out his wand and pointed it at Draco.

“Blaise I’m your best friend I know you’re not going to curse me”

Blaise ignored him “Did you sleep with her?” He asked.


“Did you hurt her?”


“Did you put any type of spell on her?”



“Blaise I didn’t do anything to her. Ask her if you want she’ll tell you”

Blaise glared at him once more before calling Hermione in. He walked over to her and asked her if he had hurt her in anyway in hushed tones. She answered no to everything.

‘Then why was he in your bed Hermione?” He asked. She looked up at him and he could see her bottom lip slightly shaking. “Because...I...I.. had the dream again.” She said quietly. Blaise suddenly understood. More than once had she asked him to comfort her in her sleep. He reached down and hugged her tightly and kissed her cheek. “Sorry I over reacted” He murmured in her ear. Hermione looked over his shoulder to see Draco sitting on the watching to two. When he saw Hermione staring at him he smirked and she smiled.

Blaise released her and smiled down at her. “See you at Breakfast” he said he turned to leave. Hermione looked at Draco. “I’m going to go get dressed Draco” She said and he nodded. Blaise let her pass before he faced Draco once more.

“Sorry mate” He said.

“S’ok” Draco said and smiled.

“It’s just that over the summer I came to love her so much.” Blaise said. Draco glared at him. Seeing the look on Draco’s face he put his hands up and laughed. “As a sister, Draco, as a sister.” Draco’s face softened.

“You really like her don’t you” Blaise asked. It was more of a statement then a question.

“Yeah. I’ve never felt this way about another girl, Blaise, I mean every time she gets to close or we touch my veins get all tangled together and all my blood is rushing to my heart. It’s awesome.” Draco said.

Blaise smiled. “She seems to like you.” His smile suddenly vanished. “You had better not hurt her or let anything happen to her” He warned. Draco smiled and promised he wouldn’t. Blaise punched him in the shoulder and smiled. “See you at breakfast.” He said and walked out.

A few moments later Draco walked out of Hermione’s room and into his own. He quickly showered and dressed. When he got to the common room he found Hermione sitting on a black couch wearing a jean and a black long sleeved shirt. Her hair was straight and hanging in her eyes.

Draco came up behind her and touched her shoulders lightly. She jumped about two feet and shouted. Hermione fell back onto the couch, her breaths were quick. Draco leaned down near the side of her head. “What’s wrong?” He purred into her ear. She turned and looked at him. “Nothing” She smiled “You just scarred me.” Draco smirked. Hermione stood up and glared at him. “Come on lets go to breakfast.” She said and raced out the portrait hole laughing. Draco followed her also laughing.

Hermione stood in the common room, alone. She was throwing a guitar pick up in the air and trying to catch it with her teeth, like one would do with popcorn. Hermione was so focused on getting the pick in her mouth that she didn’t notice the portrait open or hear the footsteps. She threw it up once more, deciding that if she didn’t get it this time she would give up, and caught it. Just as she caught it she realized that she was very unbalanced. Hermione fell over but right before she hit the ground something stopped her.

Hermione looked up to see Draco’s face inches from her own. The guitar pick was still between her teeth when she smiled up at him. Draco smirked and slowly put her on the ground so that her back was leaning against the back of the couch. He reached up and tugged the pick from her mouth and set it aside. Hermione watched his every move. He moved closer to her and cupped her cheek in his hand. Draco was so close that Hermione could feel his breath on her lips. She had to use every once of her self control to contain herself.

Draco looked into Hermione’s eyes. He could see that she was holding back and he moved so that their faces were just barely touching. “Sometimes it just feels better to give in.” He breathed. Hermione shuddered before filling the space between them. She reached up and put her arms around his neck while he hugged her waist. Their kiss was long and passionate, it was also needed; like a drink after a long period of being thirsty.

Hermione finally broke the kiss for air. She still clung to his neck but leaned back to look at their surroundings. From the spot at the back of the couch they had somehow gotten onto the couch with Draco leaning against the arm and Hermione on his lap. Hermione looked back at him to find him examining every inch of her face. “Can I help you?” She asked just above a whisper.

“You sitting here is help enough.” He answered not taking his eyes from hers.

Hermione sighed. “We have to talk about this sooner or later.” She said and began to slide off of him, afraid that he would just shove her off anyway. To her surprise he just pulled her back onto his lap.

“Talk about what?” He asked.

“Us.” She replied.

“I don’t think there is anything to talk about.”

“Draco we have to tal--” She was cut off.

“Do you want to be want to be with me?” He asked


“Yes or no”

“Draco I…”

“Yes or no”


“Yes or no”

“I don’t know I have to think about it, ok?” Hermione said

“No” Draco said simply. Hermione looked up at him, astonished. “What”

“You heard me. I know you have an answer now and I want to hear it.” He said stubbornly, he glared into her eyes.

There was a moment of silence as she glared right back, refusing to give in.

“Yes” She said finally. Draco let out the breath he had been holding. “Good.” He said and smiled down at her. Hermione put her arms back around his neck and pulled him towards her. Their kiss was soft at first but it soon turned fiery and needed when they both grasped the fact that they were together. The portrait banged open and in came Harry with his arm over Ginny’s shoulder, Ron protectively holding Sasha, and Brian. The reaction was immediate.

Ginny whistled low, earning a glare from Hermione, Ron, and Harry. Ron started to swear. Harry tried to calm him down. Sasha hooted and shouted “Finally!” and Brian stared at them with a blank expression.

Hermione rolled from the couch and stood up. Draco followed her and smirked proudly.

“I CANT BELIEVE YOU HERMIONE! HOW COULD YOU DO THIS??? THIS IS MALFOY!!” Ron shouted at the top of his lungs. “Shut up, Ron” Sasha said and glared at her boyfriend.

“Stay out of it Sasha” Brian said.

“This is just as much my business as it is yours.” She defended. Hermione and Draco just watched as they argued. Draco slipped his arms around Hermione’s waste just as Ron was telling Ginny and Harry that it wasn’t right. Ron stopped in mid sentence and glared at Draco. He raised his wand to Draco’s throat and hissed under his breath. “Get your hands off of her” He breathed.

“Lower your wand, Ronald.” Hermione smirked. Ron’s gaze flew to her. He glared at her before turning on her heel. Ginny smiled apologetically at her brother’s behavior. Sasha followed him to see if she could calm him down.

There were a few moments of awkward silence. Harry and Brian looked very uncomfortable, while Ginny’s face held a wide smirk.

“Hermione, can I speak to you?” Harry asked. “In private” he finished. Hermione nodded and slipped from Draco’s hold. Harry led the way to the kitchens. Once they were alone Harry spoke once more. “Are you sure you want to do this, Mione?” Harry asked.

“I’m positive. Do you have a problem with it?”

“No... It’s just that other people won’t be able to grasp the concept as easily. Take Ron for example.” Harry said.

“Well its good you don’t have a problem, as for Ron, he’ll calm down eventually.” Hermione said. “Yeah I guess, I’m happy for you” Harry smiled down at her. “Thanks Harry!” They walked back to the common room together.

Hermione remembered why they had come at all when she saw Ginny and Brian setting up for band practice. Draco was sitting on the arm of the couch, watching their every move. “Hermione go get your guitar.” Ginny said while plugging in a wa-wa peddle. Hermione headed off to her room and Harry sat down next to Draco.

“So you’re not going to kill me, Potter?” Draco asked, still watching Ginny wave her wand at the instruments. “No Malfoy, I don’t think I’ll kill you just yet.” Harry said smiling and also watching the plugs untangle and connect themselves.

A few moments later the band was ready for practice. Sasha had rejoined them with Ron behind her. He had sat across the room and refused to look at Draco or Harry but every so often he would shoot a glare at Hermione. Hermione would just glare back.

“1, 2, 3 GO!” Ginny shouted and they began to play.

After that one song they decided that they were too tired to practice and everyone left but Brian, who was helping once more with the band equipment. He was raveling up cords but froze when Draco spoke. “I’ll be in my room, Mione” He said and turned around. Brian’s eyes followed him until he reached the door and it shut.

Brian turned to Hermione then. “What the hell is wrong with you?” He asked. “I have A.D.D., I’m terrified of clowns, and I still can’t land a kick flip.” Hermione replied without missing a beat. “Draco Malfoy?”

“Yes Draco Malfoy. Why not Draco Malfoy?” She mocked.

“Everyone knows I love you, and you choose the biggest bastard in the school over me!” He screamed at her. Draco had been oblivious to the fight until the next thing was said. Hermione quickly recovered from shock, she hadn’t known that he loved her! Her screams overpowered his but far. “I JUST SO HAPPEN TO LOVE THE BIGGEST BASTARD IN SCHOOL, AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT THAN TOO BAD!” Hermione screamed at him. Draco froze but then shot to the door and listened against it. He heard the sound of someone being slapped and a thud. Draco flew out the door to see Hermione on the floor clutching her cheek with her right arm and holding herself up with her injured. Brian was standing over her with his arm raised as if he was going to hit her again and Hermione was getting back up with an evil look on her face.

Draco shot across the room, gently pulled hermione back to the floor before he ran tackled Brian to the ground. After hitting him straight in the face about three times he had knocked him out cold. He dragged him out into the hallway and left him there. Draco stormed back into the common room to see Hermione examining her face. There was a large red handprint plastered on the right side of her face. Draco grabbed her hand and pulled her out of the portrait hole. “Draco” Hermione said. “Draco!” She said trying to get his attention. “DRACO!” She shouted and wrenched her hand from his grip. He turned to face her. “Where are we going?” She asked. “Widgaudeum Leviosa” He said while pointing his wand at her.

Hermione rose into the air and started to spin upside down. “This is fun you should try it sometime” She said with her feet in the air. He didn’t answer. “You didn’t tell me where were going.” She said. “Were going to Dumbledore” Draco answered her earlier question. A serious look came across Hermione’s face. “Put me down”


“Because I’m not going to Dumbledore” Draco let her feet touch the ground.

“Yes we are”

“I’ve been hit by guys before, most of the time I deserve it.”

“I heard what happened and you didn’t deser--” He was cut off by a soft voice.

“Mr. Malfoy, Miss Granger may I ask what you are doing out of bed at this hour.” Dumbledore stood in front of the two with his hands folded and his eyes twinkling. “We were coming to see you sir” Draco said.

“And why is that?”

“Brian Sirief hit Hermione.” Draco pointed to the fading red finger prints on her face. Dumbledore’s icy blue eyes swept over Hermione’s face. He examined the side of her face from afar. A serious tone struck his voice. “Mr. Sirief will be punished severely for this. He will pack his things and be off of the grounds before the first class.” A small smile came across his face.

“You may return to your common room, for I have business to attend to.” He watched the two turn around and walk back to their common rooms. He was not surprised when he saw Draco put his arm around Hermione’s waist and pull her closer to him.
