It is Savage Garden “Break Me.” Ron paced his room hours after his wi- ex-wife left. He winced at the thought. He’d seen her with Malfoy, and he’d seen the way she’d looked at him, and how he looked at her. Any fool could see that they were in love. But that wasn’t the way it was supposed to be. Hermione was his, and Malfoy was the enemy. He remembered his first impression of Hermione. He thought she was a stuck-up know-it-all. Then came the incident with the mountain troll on Halloween. After that, the two of them and Harry were inseparable. He’d developed feelings for her over the years, as well. He’d thought that they’d be together forever. He was wrong. I never thought I’d change my opinion again But you moved me in a way that I’ve never known You moved me in a way that I’ve never known How dare she do this to him!! How could she lie to him for so long? When did she stop loving him? Had she ever loved him? Was this all just a dream? Ron just could not bring himself to believe that Hermione had intentionally hurt him. But he could not dismiss the fact that she left him for the blonde Ferret… But straight away you just moved into position again You abused me in a way that I’ve never known You abused me in a way that I’ve never known Ron Weasley was always regarded as a coward. He’d flee from anything that he could get away from. But when someone insulted his friends or his family, he was sure to stand up and defend them. But when his family betrayed him to join the enemy…Ron was at a loss for what to do. So break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone Just break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone Ron was out of options. He’d spent all day trying to decipher why Hermione would leave him, let alone leave him for that arrogant prat. Wait! Harry would know! Quickly, Ron Apparated to Harry’s flat. So you’re the kind that deals with the games in the mind Well you confuse me in a way that I’ve never known You confuse me in a way that I’ve never known “What do you make of it, mate?” Ron asked anxiously. It had taken a little over an hour to tell Harry everything. When Ron had gotten to the part where Hermione had told him that she was leaving, he’d broken down in tears. It took Harry close to a half an hour to calm his friend down enough that he could speak. Harry was sitting at his desk. “Dunno. The only think I can think of is that the git gave her an illegal Love potion. The question is, when did he do it? Hermione would never go to see him of her own free will. And I know she’d stay at the house while you were gone…” Harry looked up at Ron. "Is there any way he could've broken into the house?" Ron shook his head. "Not without me knowing. I have an alarm set so that if any magic was used on the house, everyone for five miles around would know about it." “I just don’t know…” Harry sighed. So break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone So won’t you break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone They heard a *pop* and they both looked up. Hermione stood in Harry’s hallway. Her eyes widened when she saw the look on their faces. “What are you doing here?” Ron asked in a voice he didn’t recognize. He didn’t think he’d ever speak to Hermione with that much malice. “H-Harry p-promised to help me move into my rooms…but he never came. I-I thought something happened to him,” she stammered, obviously taken off-guard. She looked so innocent that Ron almost doubted that he’d seen her in the arms of that Ferret less than an hour ago. But he couldn’t get the sound of their laughter out of his head… She says, " I can help you, but what do you say?" 'Cause it's not free baby, you have to pay You just keep me contemplating, that your soul is slowly fading Harry stood up. “C’mon, Hermione. I’ll help you get your things.” He looked back to Ron. “I’ll be right back, mate.” With a double *pop*, Ron’s two best friends were gone. For a moment, he just stood there. Then he realized what would happen. Harry would confront Hermione about Draco. And Ron hadn’t wanted her to find out that he knew. He sank to the floor slowly and buried his face in his hands. What would he do without her? God, don't you know that I live with a ton of regret? 'Cause I used to move you in a way that you've never known “Hermione, are you alright?” Hermione looked up to see Harry looking at her. She could tell that he was trying to read her expression. “Harry, I just told my husband of eight years that I don’t love him anymore. How do you think I feel?” Tears welled up in her chocolate brown eyes. Instantly, Harry felt guilty. He wrapped his arms around her. “I’m sorry Hermione. I shouldn’t’ve asked that. But when Ron told me that he saw you with Draco…” Hermione tensed up. Ron had seen her? With Draco? She jumped out of Harry’s embrace. “What did you say?” she whispered. Harry’s eyes opened wide. “N-nothing. Don’t worry about it, Hermione-“ But she was gone. Ron jumped when he heard the *pop*. He looked up and was face-to-face with a pair of chocolate eyes. Very angry chocolate eyes. “Ronald Weasley,” she whispered fiercely, “How dare you accuse me of cheating on you? And with DRACO of all people?!” Ron jumped to his feet, his face hot. “What do you mean, ‘how dare I’? How dare you?! I saw you and him, all cuddled up in your bedroom. In our bedroom! When did this happen? Was it when I was gone for two weeks for work? Or maybe this has been going on for a while. Either way, it doesn’t matter. We are finished.” “Yes, Ronald, we are finished.” Ron flinched at how she spat his name. “I didn’t want to hurt you. But it’s too late for sorry now. Good-bye, Ronald.” And with a *pop* she was gone. But then I accused you in a way that you've never known But you hurt me in a way that I've never known... Ron stood there, alone. He knew that he shouldn’t’ve blown up at her like that. But he’d let his temper get the better of him. He couldn’t believe that she’d accused him like that, as though she was completely innocent. He stared at where she’d stood not a moment ago. For an instant, he could feel the anger coursing through him. Then he dropped to his knees and broke down in tears. Break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone So won't you break me shake me hate me take me over When the madness stops then you will be alone When Hermione got back to her rooms in the Leaky Cauldron, she found her trunks on her bed and Harry gone. She assumed that he’d followed her to his flat and that he and Ron were even now plotting against her and Draco. Draco. Her angry expression softened at the thought of her lover. At least he wouldn’t abandon her. At least, she hoped he wouldn’t…. She shook her head vehemently. No. Draco loved her, and she loved him. That was all that mattered. Listen, baby You'll be, you'll be alone Break me shake me hate me take me make me Fake me break me shake me hate me take me Break me
