Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 The End In The Beginning

"Did you write to her?" He tried again. She just needed to speak and her emotions would be released. As long as she kept quiet, they would be left bottled up. But all he got was another nod.


"Did she reply?"


Another one.


"What did she say?"


A shrug. She passed him a piece of parchment. It was the reply. Of course she'd find an alternative to speaking... She always did.

2 Exhausted

"You can talk to us, you know that right?" Molly asked, worried for the woman she considered her daughter. Hermione nodded.


"We know it's because of Draco that-"


Hermione froze and there was a sudden change in the atmosphere. Tension filled the air.

3 Letting Go

"I let go", She choked out, for the first time speaking before being asked to.

- - -

And then he spoke. "I realized that you can never be alone. That there's always someone who will take care of you and love you. Someone to always give you hope. Because even if you think so, your life isn't over."

4 And Then

"Then you must know that whatever decisions I make, I make them for your department's good. For your good, am I right?" He asked, half-sitting on the edge of the desk.


"Of course but will all due respect, is there a reason for these questions? Are you- " She faltered for a second as a thought crossed her mind, before recovering, "-Sir, are you firing me?"

5 Disrupting The Nature

"How dare you!" She screamed, glad that they were on a floor that only consisted of his office and her own and needed permission to enter even the corridor of.


Harry hung his head, knowing how much he had hurt her and knowing he needed to face the consequences.


"How dare you think you could do that to me! Do you know what you've done?!"

6 Letters & Files

"Yeah, I guess. Don't you have to get home? It's pretty late." Hermione said as the rails clamped shut.


He shrugged. "No one to go home to." Stormy blue eyes locked chocolate brown for a second before Hermione looked away and moved to press the ground floor button.

7 Personal and Professional

Hermione closed her eyes and took another deep breath. It would not help to hex this lady. Before she could say anything, a throat was cleared behind her and a very familiar voice spoke up.


"What if Im under her in her department and I have my identity card? It has her specified as my head as well." Hermione spun around to see Draco Malfoy standing there, his white shirt untucked and sleeves rolled up to his elbows, his hands buried in the pockets of his black slacks, his Ministry robes slung through the gap under his right arm.

8 Desperate Needs

"If you want, you can come with me then." He asked, keeping his eyes on the files. He couldn't look at her. Not now. Most of him knew that she'd reject the offer but some part of him- some irrational part of him hoped to Merlin that she would accept.


The words kept ringing in her head as she stared at him. 'If you want, you can come with me'. And before she knew what she was saying, she had said "Sure."

9 Only More Complicated

"Something wrong?" Her throat suddenly felt dry. 

"N-no." She heard her own voice emerging hoarse and cleared it. "No," She repeated. He half-smiled at her and returned to his essay and she felt herself release a ragged breath.

10 So Close Yet So Far

"Quite the charmer, he was." Draco said.

"I actually agree." Hermione nodded, giving him a funny look. 

"Don't look at me like that- I'm perfectly straight." He glared at her playfully. 

Too playfully, she thought, her mind screaming at her to back away.

11 Memento Mori

"If you drop everything and come, people will ask questions. We need to do this very silently, Harry. P-please trust me."

A pause and then- "Fine. I'm sending Blaise over right now." She changed her wards to allow Blaise and Harry through and in a few seconds that seemed to her like hours, she heard the pop or apparation.

"Hermione?" His voice boomed through the house.

"Over here." She choked out.

12 When Built Walls Collapse

"It's been five minutes since they apparated, why they hell hasn't she given the signal yet?!" Theo roared, punching the wall.

"Theo, calm down, I'm sure-" Irene started, sounding very unsure but Blaise cut her off.

"He's right in worrying. She knew she had to give us a signal. Something's wrong."

13 Family

Just like the other two in the room, Draco couldn't take his eyes of Hermione as she spoke. One word in particular rang through his skull louder than the others-

Family...

14 A Blessing

"It's- I've meant to ask you for a few days now but I've never managed to find the right time."

"What is it?" She asked, putting her quill down and giving him her full attention.

"When- before the battle- when the Ministry officials came to have our marriage cancelled-" Hermione managed to keep her face neutral but even Ron knew she didn't want to have this conversation anymore, "-the proceedings weren't complete so we're currently in a semi illegal bond because we're only half married. The Ministry wants us to come to a decision, obviously."

15 Choices Made

"I don't see why this is your business." She said, looking down at her desk and moving around some papers.

"You- you don't see why this is my business?" He spluttered and when she looked up, she saw a humourless smile on his face. "You know why this is my business."

"I don't know what you're talking about, Malfoy." Hermione said, wishing that the envelope had not landed up in his hands to deliver to her.
