A CLIFF! It was just getting interesting when you cut it off! *pouts* But anyway, I love this chapter to bits. I'm glad Draco decided to help her. He could have gotten her killed for all he cared. :D

The story has potential in plot, I think. It could be manipulated excellently and, through dialogue, you portray the characters rather nicely. The light humour is enjoyable.
However, the story is lacking in description, thoughts, emotion, and visual aid (which can be categorized under description). At minimum, the third person omniscent point of view could describe the hatred between Hermione and Draco in more than just dialogue.
For instance, when Hermione discovers that Draco is the Head Boy, she would not exactly be so accepting as a quick, "Get over it," because chances are she's going to be just as sore as Draco about teaming up with an enemy with mutual feelings of hate shared between them. You could describe her as shocked and speechless before the shock developed into a horror and fury, with her fist clenching as she grounds out her words or something. Harry as well should likely be disappointed in himself for not receiving Head Boy and not meeting up to his father's footsteps, unless an explanation (such as Harry turning down the badge due to having too much on his plate) is given.
The ratio of the dialogue to the remainder of the story is in favor of the dialogue, so for future chapters, you might want to cut down on the dialogue or add in more descriptions and feelings. For instance, when boarding the Hogwarts Express, you might suggest that Hermione is "excited and anxious to start her final year under different circumstances as she boarded the familiar train once more. She paused at the alley as she looked down the rows of compartments with students of all heights bustling up and down, shouting for their friends or simply and meekly trying to find a seat while pushing their luggage around. She hesitated as she realized the next time she boarded the train would be her final one..." and continue like so, and describe colors such as "the familiar red plush seats" and "walked past that door that slid open with extreme difficulty that still hadn't been fixed over the past three years."
Basically, the plot you've got going is great, but you really should flesh out the story more to have it come to life. The characters are flat and shallow as of now, but that can be easily fixed. Other than that, nice. XD
