Hermione had her feet at the top of the couch and her back against the seat cushions with her head dangling upside down. Ginny sat in the chair with her feet on the coffee table and Sasha was lying on the loveseat. “So…what now?” Sasha asked. Brian had been expelled a week ago and he needed to be replaced in the band. 

“Hermione, we already decided that you were lead.” Ginny said. “Thanks for including me in that decision.” Hermione sighed, extremely bored. “Anytime.” Sasha said. 

“So we need someone to play your old position.” Sasha pointed out the obvious. “We could put up flyers” Hermione suggested.

“I’ll go start making them, that’s just how bored I am.” Sasha said and got up to leave. At the portrait she ran into Draco. He walked over to Hermione and pecked her on the lips, then walked away. “Feet off the furniture, Weasley.” He said before closing the door to his room.


Next Saturday Hermione, Ginny, Sasha, Ron, Harry, and Draco sat in the Great Hall with 30 other kids who were auditioning for Hermione’s old spot. “Up first, Sam Pecci” Hermione said and a girl in braids walked onto the stage with an acoustic guitar. She played well but she was rather young they decided.

 Next was a 6th year Ravenclaw. He played the same chords over and over again. “Next!” Sasha said.

7 people later a Hufflepuff walked onto the stage with a broom. She climbed onto it and started to loop in circles. Once she stopped there was silence from everyone. The girl walked off the stage without a word.

Another boy came up next. He suddenly made a high-pitched noise with his guitar. The noise almost blew out Hermione’s eardrums. She screamed and covered her ears, as did everyone else. Finally Justin Flinch-Fletchley came onto the stage.

“I didn’t know you could play guitar, Justin” Harry said.

“Yeah I’m pretty good; I’m going to play 'Stairway To Heaven'.” He said and started to play.  After he was done people clapped and cheered. “That was amazing, you got it. We have a practice next Thursday.” Ginny said smiling.

“Okay so we’ll have the Hufflepuffs do decorations and Slytherins do flyers.” Hermione said sitting on the common room floor with Draco next to her in early November. “And Gryffindor’s can do food and Raven claw’s can do drinks.” Draco finished. They were planning the Christmas Dance together.

“We still need a band.” Hermione said looking over some papers. “How about you guys.” Draco said looking over her shoulder. . Hermione stopped flipping trough the list she had made and turned to look at him “Really?”

“Why not, you guys would be great.”

“Ok I just have to ask Professor Dumbledore.” Hermione said trying her best to hold her excitement in. Draco smiled as he watched her race out of the portrait.

 Hermione ran screaming down the hallway. She burst into the Gryffindor common room. Ginny, Harry, Ron, and Sasha turned to the noise. Ginny saw the glint in her eyes. “OH MY GOD!!” She shouted. Harry jumped up and Ron made an odd looking sound. The girls stared at them for a moment while they blushed and made excuses for their behavior. “You scared us!” Ron defended himself and Harry. “Why on earth did you yell anyway Ginny?” Harry asked as he ran a hand through his hair. “You’re both daft.” Sasha said Ron looked down upon her. “I take offence to that.” He said.  Sasha just glanced up at him and shook her head.

“We’ve got it, Harry!” Ginny said as if it were the most obvious thing in the world. Harry put his finger to his chin and began mumbling under his breath. “Got it, got it…” Then a look of understanding came across his face. “Oh that’s great you got it!” Harry said and he hugged Ginny. “You’re so thick.” She said and kissed him. A look of disgust came across Ron’s face. “Stop that.” He said but they ignored him. Ron sighed and turned to Sasha. “Congrats Sash.” And he hugged her. Hermione stood there stupidly with the lonely feeling taking over her body. “Well, I’ll see you guys later.” She said and turned. “See ya Mione.” Sasha said from Ron’s grasp.

When she returned to the common room Draco was still there, planning the dance. “So what did Dumbledore say?” He looked up at her. “He said yes.” Hermione said simply and sat next to him. “You’ll be awesome.” He said and smiled down at her. “Thanks. The guys are going to come over later so we can plan what songs were going to do.” She said. He nodded and looked her up and down. Draco leaned over and kissed her passionately. *kiss* “Hey do you *kiss* want *kiss* to go to *kiss* the dance *kiss* with me? *kiss*” He asked in between kisses. Hermione nodded and smiled.

 A week later Sasha, Ginny, and Hermione were walking down the main street of Hogsmeade. They had snuck out of school to buy their dress for the dance before everyone else. Harry, Ron, and Draco had all questioned them as to why they were shopping for them five weeks before the dance but the only answer they received was a glare from Ginny.

“There it is!” Ginny shouted and raced into the dress store. She was closely followed by Sasha and Hermione. “What to chose, what to chose.” Hermione sung under her breath. The store was huge and filled with a million sparkling dresses just waiting to be worn.

It was hours before they had finally found what they wanted and paid for it. Ginny had chosen a short dress that was almost the exact same shade of her pale blue eyes and had thin straps on her shoulders. Sasha’s dress was sleeveless and was held to her by magic. It was black silk and stopped just above her knees. Hermione’s dress was midnight blue and had thin straps. The bottom was slanted as one side stopped just below her thigh and the other ended just above her knees in thick fluffy layers.

Hermione hoped Draco liked it. The three girls walked into Huneydukes and snuck into the cellar. About fifteen minutes later they slide open the door of the witches hump and climbed out. Hermione was about to side the door shut when she felt a hand on her shoulder. She winced and turned to face the teacher, about to defend herself.

Hermione sighed when she saw Harry smiling back at her. “That wasn’t funny Harry; I thought we had been caught.” Hermione scolded him. Harry laughed and picked up Ginny’s bags. “I just wanted to tell you we have a match against the Slytherin next weekend and practices every day till.” Hermione nodded before waving goodbye and carrying her bags back to her room.
