A/N: Hello there! Thank you to all of my reviewers! As I have said, I cannot name each and every one of you because I am an extremely lazy person! He he… To some of my reviewers:

It must be my fault that you misunderstood. This is the last chapter! I just lost my inspiration to finish the last one because my mind was already tired as well as my fingers… anyway…

Now, some of my classmates read this (of course not knowing that it was me who wrote it) and they didn't understand why Hermione said 'Go away' in the previous chapters. So now I'm going to explain why: Hermione saw the "fake" Draco. That Draco insulted her, so Hermione of course got hurt. So blah blah blah… Now, when she recovered, she still remembered the "fake" Draco and thought that that Draco was the real one. Of course, she was still hurt and now she's angry with him, okay?

If you still don't get it, FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF, k?

Anyway… Here's the fifteenth and final chapter! Hope you like it!

Chapter Fifteen


Draco looked at his reflection, making sure that there was absolutely no flaw in his appearance. Of course, this was impossible, because he was the Draco Malfoy... the tall, blonde, handsome Draco Malfoy. However, it was no exception. He had to look his very best every day, especially today…

Because he was going to meet Hermione for the first time after a week.

Thanks to Harry, he was going to be able to see her. She had agreed fortunately, not because she had already forgiven him, but because she didn't know whom she was going to see.

Harry had told Draco that they were to meet at the grounds by the lake at five in the afternoon on Saturday next week. However, that Saturday had already come. And it was already four fifteen in the afternoon… meaning Draco had only forty-five minutes before they were to meet.

Draco cleared his throat and straightened his tie. This is it, he thought, his heart beating quickly. He stepped back from the mirror and looked at himself one last time. Perfect. He smiled, approving of what he saw. He breathed deeply and finally exited the dormitory.


"What are you doing here?"

Draco gulped in fear.

Hermione glared at him. "I said, what are you doing here?"

"I-I'm supposed to meet you here, didn't you know?" he answered, trying to be calm.

"No," she replied coldly, "I'm supposed to meet someone else here. That's what Harry said. I don't think he'd want you, of all people, to see me."

"I told you, it's me you're supposed to meet." Draco said, feeling annoyed. "Feel free to stay here until midnight to wait for that someone, but he won't come."

"I'd rather do that than stay with you." Hermione looked at him angrily and said, "Goodbye, Malfoy."

She started walking away to return to the castle.

Draco smacked his head and ran after her. He grabbed her hand. "No, Hermione!" he said, looking at her straight in the eye. "Just this once. Can you talk to me?"


Hermione tried to get away from him, but he was too strong. He pulled her closer and embraced her. She gasped.

"Please… just listen." Draco whispered. He let go of her.

"Hurry up," Hermione muttered, avoiding his eyes.

Draco smiled. "Why are you mad at me?"

"I believe you know the answer."

"No, I don't."

Hermione looked up at him.

"Whatever I did to you, if ever I hurt or offended you… well… I- I'm sorry."

She stared at him.

"Well, I'll be going now…" Draco gave her a tin smile and put his hands in his pockets. "See you, Hermione."

He retreated sadly, his back hunched. He had already apologized to her for something he didn't do, yet she did not accept it. He sighed hopelessly and started walking fast. However, he heard Hermione's voice.

"Draco…" she said softly, tears now falling down her cheeks.

Draco looked back and saw her running towards him. She stopped in front of him.

"Hermione?" he asked.

Hermione looked up at him and smiled. "Why is it impossible to hate you, Draco Malfoy?"

She gave him a tight embrace, leaning her head on his chest. Draco, though surprised, returned it. "What can I say, I'm charming and handsome," he joked, smiling with satisfaction.

Hermione pulled away. She smiled up at him and took his hand. "It's getting dark. Let's go now, shall we?" she said, squeezing his hand.

Draco nodded and put his arm around her. They walked back to the castle happily as the sun set in the west, disappearing behind the mountains.
