Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 A Web of One's Own Making

A peek into the world of Draco Malfoy...

2 Transgression in the French style...

Hermione smiled appreciatively, realising this meant their mystery guest had arrived. She turned in her seat to see who it was, her mouth dropping open in shock as her eyes took in a very familiar face, framed with messy red hair. Her estranged husband looked uncomfortable, his hands moving subconsciously to the front of his shirt, smoothing the fabric down. He was wearing a pair of neat chocolate brown suit pants and a bone coloured shirt, one Hermione recognised as a Christmas gift from his mother.

3 Memories through the Mess

Draco put down the report with a sigh, taking out a piece of parchment and a quill, writing Hermione a short note, telling her he would send one of his men around to deal with her problem wizard. He paused before folding the parchment, his quill poised above the page, quickly adding: I'm sorry about the other night.

4 Coming Unstuck

"I'll let you know if I come up with anything," Draco said from behind them. Hermione turned to look at him. He was leaning against the lounge room doorway, his icy blonde fringe hanging messily in his eyes. Draco held Hermione's notes in his hand, his eyes scanning the pages quickly. He glanced up, meeting her gaze, before shifting his eyes to Harry.

5 Of the Heart

Draco stared at her, unsure of what to say. He did not know how to begin explaining things to her. There was so much he had not said over the years, so much he had kept hidden and although he was certain Pansy had her secrets too, he suspected his were worse.

6 Tangled up in Reason

Ron stood in the doorway, his eyes widening as he noticed Hermione and Draco together on the lounge. Hermione swallowed nervously, watching as her husbands knuckles slowly turned white. His hand was still wrapped around the doorknob, and he was squeezing it so hard she thought it would shatter.

7 Let it all crash

"Ron, can you go, please? Draco ... he needs someone to talk to at the moment. He's just had a massive fight with Pansy. You understand," Hermione was saying, her voice soft and gentle and Draco resisted the urge to smirk at her sly lies, blended with the truth.

8 The Co-existence of Shame and Bliss

"Please, Harry. Just forget what you know. Please," she begged, shaking him until he opened his eyes and looked at her. "Please. We are going to tell everyone, but just not yet. No one would understand."

9 Discussions and Revelations

A smirk sliding across his lips, Draco turned and raced towards the front door, hearing her curse in the background, before her tiny feet followed him. Draco reached the door first, turning to glance at Pansy over his shoulder, his hand closing on the handle. She stopped dead, staring at him, shaking her head.

“Don’t,” she whispered. “Just go. Please don’t, Draco.”

10 Doubt has Claws...

“Hey,” he said softly, giving her a smile. “How was my ex-wife? As charming as usual, no doubt?”

“Your wife, don’t you mean,” Hermione answered without thought. Draco frowned, his forehead creasing quickly, before his face slowly drained of colour.

“Hermione…”

“Is that them? The divorce papers?” Hermione asked stiffly, coming into the kitchen to stand on the opposite side of the table. “Are you going to sign them?”

11 Anguish and Antagonism

Draco stared at her, searching her face for some hint that he had misheard her, but all he could see was cold, hard truth staring back at him. He lifted a hand weakly in her direction, as if wanting to grab her, before letting it drop to his side, beginning to laugh wildly.

“Why?” he choked through his laughter. “Why would you go and do something like that?”

12 Sins and Sinners

Draco sighed, reaching for his wand, lying on the floor with his shirt. He pointed it at the door; it swung closed as Draco muttered a Silencing charm. Hermione and Ron both looked at him, the latter with slight fear in his eyes. “Do you want the rest of them knowing?” he said calmly, before his eyes hardened.

13 It's time for the Truth

“I’ve waited weeks for this, Hermione,” Ron said savagely. “Since I saw him with his hands ... You hold no sway over me anymore, you realise that. Nothing. You don’t own me, you can’t convince me, and you can’t cajole me into doing what you want. I don’t belong to you anymore. I can safely say I stuck a wand in Draco Malfoy’s face by my own choice. I acted for myself,” he added in a hiss.

Draco chuckled. “You’re so dense, Weasley. What a nice moment to choose to celebrate your freedom.”

14 Deadly Sins

We’re all sinners.

Perhaps we are, Draco thought, watching Hermione as she turned back to the children. He could see a small frown on her face. Her hair glinted golden in the light, and Brianna’s childish laugh floated across the lawn. Draco turned and flicked his wand, sealing the house.
