**Disclaimer- I don't own anything but the plot.**

It all began for me on the first day of my seventh year at Hogwarts. Although I didn't know it at the time, this year was going to change me forever, both physically and mentally. Over the summer from 6th to 7th year, I had changed drastically- my hair was straight, my teeth perfect, and I had spent endless hours working out. After meeting up with my best friends Harry and Ron, we walked from Platform 9 and 3/4 onto the train. We found a compartment and sat down, with Harry next to me and Ron on the other side.

"Hermione Granger, you have changed," Ron said with a smirk on his face.

"Yeah, I guess so," I replied.

"But you still are the same old Hermione, right?" Harry asked.

"If you only knew," I thought.

"Yes, of course, " I said quickly.

"Hey, Ron, did you ever get that poster you had wanted of the Flying Wizards? That quidditch team you were talking about in your last letter?" I said trying to change the subject.

"Yeah, I did. But the bad thing is that mum won't let me bring it to Hogwarts," Ron said.

"Oh, that's too bad," I said, quickly wanting to escape this small box I had to share with them, for the first time in my life.

"I have to go to the bathroom, I'll be right back. Harry, get me something off the trolley if she comes around and I'll pay you back?" I asked,

"Sure, No problem," He said. I practically ran out of the cabin to bump straight into the arms of none other than Draco Malfoy himself.

"What the hell?!?" He practically screamed.

"Sorry..." I said with confidence, unlike before.

"Granger?" Draco asked me.

"Yes...Hello Malfoy," I said with a devilish grin on my face. He had always been handsome, but it seemed to me that he had changed. He was taller- about 6'2, muscular, and he had cut his hair into a more muggle look - a flip.

"What in bloody hell did you do to yourself?" He asked.

"Um.....I don't know... Nothing I guess," I said as I watched his gaze as it traveled up my legs, to my skirt, which was about a good 3 or 4 inches higher than last year, and then up to my chest, where my tie was loosely done, and then all the way up to my face, where his eyes caught mine.

"You have changed.......Eh whatever. Just watch where you're going from now on, Granger," He said, not as cold as usual.

"Um yeah. I'll see you later," I said turning around with a flirtatious smile on my face.

"Damnnnn....." I heard him say faintly as I was walking away.


After my encounter with Draco, I walked to the bathroom and fixed my makeup. Then I walked back to the compartment that I was sharing with Harry and Ron.

"Miss me?" I asked laughing.

"Oh yes...." Harry said, motioning for me to sit down next to him.

"Hey Hermione...." Harry said, and before I could do anything, he kissed me. I broke away from the kiss, and slapped him.

"You want me now, because i've changed, but before, you didn't? I dont think so, Mr.Potter," I practically screamed, and then ran out of the compartment. With all of my stuff in my arms, and trying to hold back tears, I searched through blurry eyes for an empty compartment. At almost the end of the train, I found one. Throwing my stuff on one of the seats, I sat down and stared out the window, letting the tears flow. I had no idea that Potter was so shallow, and cared only about looks. From being his friend for so long, I thought that he would have been more deep. After a couple minutes of staring out the window, a voice snapped me out of my daydream.

"Who the fuck do you think you are taking my compartment, asshole?" I turned around to face the person that was screaming at me. It was Malfoy again.

"Oh, Im sorry. Ill leave...."I said trying wipe the tears away, so he wouldn't see how weak I really was.

"Granger? Are you ok?" He said, and my heart dropped at the thought that he cared.

"I'm fine. I'm leaving now," I said, trying to get out of there as fast as I could.

"You don't have to leave if you dont want to. I don't think that there are any more empty compartments, unless you want to go with Potty and Weasel," He said, making me laugh through tears.

"See you can't be all that sad, Granger," He said.

"God damn Dream Team. Fuck them all," I said, watching his amazement at what I said.

"Fuck the Dream Team? Really Granger? I thought that you were ready to have one of their children," He said

"Shut the fuck up. I'll leave now," I said while picking up my belongings and dragging my trunk to the door.

"You don't have to leave. I'm intrigued at your little fight with Potty and Weasel," Malfoy said grabbing my trunk and mumbling a spell to make it disappear.

"Where the hell did my trunk go?" I asked.

"Testy are we? I just put it away for you. Shit, I do something nice and you snap. What's gotten into you, Granger?"

"Nothing. Nothing. Since when did you begin to care about my problems?" I asked.

"I never said I cared, I just said that I was intrigued," He said with the famous smirk on his face.

"Ugh....I hate the whole lot of them. Stupid pricks...." I said.

"Wow Granger. Watch the language. My virgin ears can't take it," He said, smirking again. I let a small giggle escape my lips.

"Oh shut up Mr.So-Called-Sex-God," I replied, and winked.

"Wouldn't you like to know...." He said.

"Don't think that every girl in this damned school wants you, Malfoy," I replied

"I don't. I just know that you do," He said.

"Oh really...................." I said. As I was staring into his eyes, the train stopped suddenly, and a voice came over the loudspeaker announcing that we had arrived.

"Can you give me my trunk back?" I asked.

"Yeah, Hold up." He then mumbled a spell and my trunk came out from under the seat.

"Thanks. I'll see you around," I said, grabbing my trunk, and walking out of the train.


In the Great Hall, I sat next to Lavender and Parvati, and we talked about usual girl things, about the new student we had just gotten, a cute Parisian boy named Jérémy. She didn't look at or talk to Harry or Ron.

"Your attention please!" Dumbledore said. The Great Hall quieted down.

"First years, a warm welcome to Hogwarts. Seventh years, I hope that you all have a wonderful last year here. I will be announcing your trip later in the year." Dumbledore said.

"Hmm....I wonder where this trip is gonna be..." Lavender asked.

"I hope we go to that muggle place called Bahamas. It's supposed to be really nice there."

We all ate until we were full, and I went to the library and took out some books for the new school year. As I was reading "Potions for the Modern Teen", I felt a hand sweep across my neck. I turned around to be facing none other than Draco Malfoy.

"What do you want Malfoy?" I asked.

"To bother you," He said. Oh great.

"It's no secret that you got hot, Granger. Everyone wants you now, and I want first dibs," He said. Oh this was going to be interesting.

"Oh really," I said.

"Yeah...."He was walking towards me now, as I was walking away. I backed up into a bookcase. I was trapped, with Draco Malfoy. God, that smirk was hot. "Aren't you still with Pansy Parkinson?" I asked. And then he kissed me.

**Thanks for reading. The story starts off very cliché. but ends up very differently. So take a chance on this story. I promise it will get much better!**
