AN: Sorry the chapter is so short but I think that it is pretty good. I hope you all like it. I am sorry its not longer, but this is all I wanted in this chapter. Tell me what you think.


She pulled away from Draco as soon as she heard the voice. But the damage was done. There was nothing she could to that wouldn’t hurt someone. They turned to face the group that just entered the small restaurant. There stood Harry, Ginny, Neville, Luna and Ron.

“Hermione?” Ron said, “What are you doing?”

“Ron, I…” she said looking from Draco then back to Ron, “This isn’t what it looks like.”

“What is it, some kind of game?”

“No it’s not that,” she said.

            “What is it then? Just something you do on your free time?”

“You know that’s not true!”

“Than what? Do you take some sort of joy fraternizing with the enemy?” he said loudly, “you seem to do it all the time.”

“Ron, wait.”

He turned to leave, but stopped with his hand on the doorknob, their friends looking on, but not standing in the way of Ron exiting the room.

“Enjoy your life, Hermione,” he said quietly over his shoulder before leaving.

The rest of the group exited after him, not saying a word to Hermione. A tear fell from her eye as she dropped to her knees.  With her face in her hands she cried her heart out. Draco looked on at the scene not sure what exactly to do, he knew he caused a big scene between the girl of his dreams, and her friends. He knelt next to her and pulled her into a hug. She wrapped her arms around his neck, and cried into his shoulder.

She pulled out of the hug and without saying anything she walked to the door. But stopped before exiting, she turned around to face Draco.

“Put the tables back Draco, I’m leaving,” and with that she walked out of the restaurant.

Draco sat in the middle of the restaurant and watched Hermione leave. He didn’t say anything, or move from where he sat. He didn’t make an attempt to move the tables back to where they were originally.

Hermione made her way to the center of town, looking in every shop, and down every back alley, in search of her Gryffindor friends. It was almost night when she finally gave up and headed to where the carriages would pick them up; having only about a half hour before they would be there she headed down and waited.

The carriages arrived and students slowly began to show up, piling into the carriages. Hermione climbed into the first carriage and sat alone for a while before the carriage door opened. She didn’t look at who was climbing in, and she knew that whoever it was she didn’t want to talk to them.

“Hermione,” the door closed, “listen to me, whatever happened back there…” he took a deep breath, “Hermione look at me.”

She didn’t turn toward him, nor did she have any intention of doing so.

“Fine, I will say what I need to say and then I will leave you alone.”

She still looked away from him. All she wanted to do was go back to the castle and throw herself on her bed and be alone. He grabbed her hand; she still didn’t look at him. But now she was having problems looking away, because she melted when he touched her, she fell even more in love with him when they were together.

“Hermione,” he said, “Hermione look at me. Please.”

“Draco why should I?” she said turning toward Draco, “you ruined what me and Ron had, and I don’t think I will be able to fix what you have done.”

“What I did?” he said in shock, “I didn’t force you to go, you came all on your own, you can’t even begin to blame this on me. If you loved him so much then you wouldn’t have come. You would have stayed with him. If you truly loved him you wouldn’t have danced with me and kissed me, you did that on your own. I didn’t force anything onto you.”

“Draco, that’s not true, I only went because you asked me to.”

“Yes, asked, not told, there is a difference Hermione,” he said now only a few inches from her face, “Hermione,” he said softly, “I will always love you, no matter what you say, or do, I will love you for the rest of my life.”

Without another word he got out of the carriage, leaving her alone to think about all that he had said.
