It all started in the summer. Hermione Jean Granger was entering her 7th year at Hogwarts.
She lay on her bed studying about the different antidotes for poisons. BOOM. She jumped and spun around to find an owl smashed against her window. The owl carried a letter bearing the Hogwarts crest. Yes this is it! This is where I find out if my biggest goal has been completed! With shaking fingers she swiftly took out her head girl badge. That night Hermione slept peacefully not know that her partner in this was her worst enemy.
On her way to Kings Cross Hermione couldn’t stop thinking about who else was to get the Head Boy position. What if it was some disgusting, foul, git that she didn’t like? The thought kept bothering her. Hermione Granger did not like living with people she didn’t really know. She was so caught up in her thoughts that she didn’t notice that she was just standing in front of the train’s door with Malfoy staring at her.
“Are you getting in or not?” He raised an eyebrow and motioned to the door.
“Huh? Oh yes I am.” Shaking her head she searched for Ron and Harry.
She finally found them in the last compartment.
For some reason, she hesitated when she reached for the door handle. She didn’t really want to be with them right now. As the years passed by they became more distant with her. Whenever she would try to start a conversation they just nodded and didn’t say anything. After she had had plenty of this she decided to just let them be. They grew apart and now Hermione was alone. She sighed at the happy memories. She decided to go to the Heads compartment, even if she was 15 minutes early.
When she arrived she saw someone who she was planning on avoiding at all costs.
“Malfoy???” She nearly spit on the floor.
He looked up at her and scowled.
“Ugh! I can’t believe I have to spend this year knowing that a filthy mudblood is living with me.”
“Believe me, I’m not thrilled either.” She said, ignoring his insults. They sat across from each other. It was weird though. They were not as hostile as they always are. They were never on good terms. Whenever they talked to each other it was just insults. But this year they were capable of sitting in the same room and maybe even start a civilized conversation. And it’s about time though because they had a job to do.
Hermione and Draco spent the whole time on the train together. It wasn’t bad; he could actually make her laugh. They slowly came together that night. After they did their duties they pulled their luggage into the carriages. They were in silence. The first to break it was Malfoy.
“Granger, what are we doing?”
“What do you mean?” She asked puzzled.
“Why are we acting so friendly all of a sudden?” He questioned.
“Well I guess we just got to know each other a bit more than we thought we did. And it’s sort of in time because we really need to get along in order to perform our duties and Head Girl and Boy.”
Malfoy nodded and stuck out his hand.
She smiled. For once she didn’t feel so lonely. And who knew it would be Malfoy that would make her feel this way.
And then something happened that never happened before…he smiled back. Their hands stayed together for the rest of the ride. They didn’t even notice though.
Hermione hadn’t felt so happy in a long time. They made each other laugh until they cried. Another thing they didn’t notice was that the carriage behind them was occupied with the two most confused and angry boys in Europe.
“What the bloody hell? Why is Hermione with that git?” Ron said with his face furiously red.
“I don’t know but it looks like their laughing.” Harry said, staring at the two new friends.
“That can’t be possible! Hermione hates him!” Ron looked at Harry as he finished staring at Hermione.
“Well not anymore. Anyways, we have been really distant with her and I’ve noticed how she decided to not deal with us anymore. We hurt her Ron! Haven’t you noticed how she always asked to go to Hogsmeade together and we always say we have Quidditch. She knows it’s not true. Hermione’s not as thick as you Ron.” Harry lectured.
Ron merely shrugged and went back to eating his brownie. Harry sighed and looked at Hermione. She did look truly happy. But it just made no sense! This was the guy that bullied us for years. And she’s now all buddy buddy with him all of a sudden. Maybe it has to do with the Head girl and boy duties. Maybe McGonagall made them be civil with each other. Whatever it is, Harry was going to get to the bottom of this. Whenever he knew something was going on that he didn’t know about he had to find out. After all, he was Harry Potter.
The evening went by rather quickly. The sorting hat explained that Lord Voldemort was defeated but we still lost so many but we have to stay strong. Blah blah blah. Hermione was too caught up in her thoughts about Malfoy to pay attention. It was just the way he made her feel! It was so easy and comfortable around him. But it was so weird at the same time. It’s just so fast! They now agreed to be on a first name basis. Hermione knew that Harry and Ron already found out about his. She could tell by their stone faces. But Hermione couldn’t care less. They have been ignoring her for the past 2 years and she had had enough of crying herself to sleep wondering why they were like this. A new Hermione was coming. No more trying to get them to talk to her. She was going to be with the only two friends she wanted to be with. Draco and Ginny. She might even make new ones.
Her thoughts were interrupted by Ginny nudging her.
“Coming?” She said.
“Oh yeah.” She stood and walked in the opposite direction towards the Heads common room
Instead of a portrait it was a simple door with a lock. That was weird. Then she remembered she never got the key! She was so busy thinking about Malfoy! McGonagall already spoke to him. She sighed to herself and sat on the floor waiting for him to arrive. She waited and waited and waited. It was already 10:18 pm. She decided to go to Dumbledore. She looked at her feet the whole way there so she didn’t see Malfoy coming around a corner and her nose collided with his shoulder.
“OW! HOLY MERLIN!” She whisper-screamed.
“Oh god! I’m sorry I didn’t see you there !” He said as he helped her into the room.
The room was magnificent. It had a fluffy white carpet with Red and Silver walls. There was a white couch and coffee table in the middle of the common room in front of a fireplace and TV. Then there were two staircases leading to their rooms with a black door in the middle labeled bathroom. Draco helped Hermione up to the bathroom and sat her on the counter. He grabbed a paper towel and wiped her bloody nose. It was an awkward potion because they looked like they were about to snog.
After she was all cleaned up he fixed her nose. She was walking out of the bathroom behind Draco when she tripped over the tiny trash can and fell on him. He looked at her honey brown eyes and she gazed into his grey moon ones.
“Would you like me to get off?” She whispered.
He didn’t reply but simply stared at her.
“What? Oh yeah. Um sure.”
She got off and they stared at each other for a few moments.
“Um, well, I’m going to bed.” Draco said.
“Oh ok. Alright.” She said. They both turned in opposite directions to their rooms.
