Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Chapter 1: Annabel and the Blonde Boy

She spotted her cousin immediately talking (but in Hermione’s opinion, it was flirting with the way Annabel was battering her eyelashes and tossing her hair) to a tall boy with white blond hair who was dressed in all black.

He looks strangely familiar, Hermione thought, frowning to herself. Where have I seen him before? 

And then it hit her.

2 Chapter 2: Gone Forever

“How is she?” Draco asked, trying to peer around the Healer to see into the bedroom. The Healer’s smile faded and turned into a sympathetic expression. Oh Merlin, I don’t think she has good news. What’s happened to Mother? Draco thought, shaking slightly.

3 Chapter 3: Muggle activities

“Forbidden love, hey?” asked Mrs Granger, removing her arm from Hermione’s shoulder and stirring the sauce into the meat. “Makes the movie interesting, doesn’t it?”

“I suppose, but personally I wouldn’t go mucking around with someone who I wasn’t allowed to be with,” Hermione replied, getting plates out of the cupboard.

“Oh, Hermione, since when is true love forbidden? As long as they were completely and head-over-in-heels in love with one another, it’s not forbidden is it?”

4 Chapter 4: Birthdays and Parties

“How’s your cousin?” he asked, the sadness gone from his face.

“Oh, she’s doing fine. She’s at some seventeen party today, one of her friends named Henry or something. I can’t remember his name. Anyway I wasn’t invited, but she’s having a early eighteenth party and I’m going to that so –”

She paused, suddenly getting a good idea. “Hey, you could come to her party as my guest! How about it?” She looked at Draco hopefully.

5 Chapter 5: Truth or Dare…

“Have you ever asked a guy out? And I mean those who go to your school.”

“No,” answered Hermione truthfully.

“Really? Not even Draco Malfoy?”

“Annabel, I’ve already told you and I’ll tell you again, me and Malfoy aren’t friends.”

23 Chapter 21: Draco's Plan

She sat alone on a bench, playing some sort of instrument, singing softly to herself. Her hair flowed graciously round her shoulders and seemed to glow in the sun a bit, the colours in her hair lighting up. Her fingers moved in a fast motion up and down the instrument, but she seemed to not notice where they were going as she had her eyes closed.

How does she do that? Draco wondered as he cautiously approached her, knowing that if he sprung up on her suddenly, she wouldn’t be too happy about it and probably wouldn’t help him.

24 Chapter 22: Valentine's Day

He turned round to check she was still following him. “Come on.”

“We’re going up there?” she asked, wondering if she had the energy to walk up.

“Well if you want to see my wonderful surprise, yes. If you don’t come, you’ll miss out on something special,” he responded, a small smirk creeping onto his features.

25 Chapter 23: She's the One

He sighed, wishing she would actually look at him while he was talking to her. He had to get her attention.

“Hermione, what’s going on between you and Malfoy?” he asked, his tone deadly serious.

Hermione swung round, very surprised he had asked that question. She hadn’t expected that. What did he know?

26 Chapter 24: Caught in the Act (Part One)

She buried her head in her hands as tears starting falling from her eyes and cried softly. It was all too much to handle without letting it out.

Draco had sensed she wouldn’t take this well. He sat up properly on the couch and lifted Hermione up, holding her against his chest as she cried softly. “Shh, don’t cry, Hermione. It’ll be alright,” he cooed softly, rocking her back and forth slowly.

27 Chapter 25: Caught in the Act (Part Two)

“Why did you have to wear that?” he asked, pointing at the Invisibility Cloak Harry was holding up. “It’s so weird talking to someone you can’t see.”

“Because I’m not supposed to be out of bed at this hour,” said Harry, rolling his eyes. “You as Head Boy would know that and you’re supposed to be punishing me for being out of my dormitory.”

“Hey, you have a good reason to be out of bed,” Draco said, pointing his wand at Harry. “You’re helping me protect Hermione.”

5,744 5
28 Chapter 26: Caught in the Act (Part Three)

She walked straight to Ron’s vacant seat and slumped down, looking at Harry straight in the eye. “Will someone please tell me what’s going on around here?” she hissed, her tone desperate. “Hermione’s nowhere to be seen, Ron’s being more of an arse than he usually is, you’re obviously annoyed, and Ginny’s not saying anything. What the hell happened this morning?”
