"I was crying over you
I am smiling I think of you
Where your gardens have no walls
Breathe in the air if you care, you compare, don't say farewell
Nothing can compare
To when you roll, the dice and you swear your loves for me
Nothing can compare
To when you roll, the dice and you swear your loves for me" -Dice by Finley Quaye

Hogwart's was quiet in the beginningof spring. The grounds were quiet with the first rays of sunshine breaking over the horizon.

Her eyes fluttered open as the fresh rays of sunshine touched her face. She smiled slightly as she gracefully rolled out of bed. She pushed her tangled hair out of her eyes and grabbed her robe.

She tied the robe around herself and rubbed her eyes. She heard the sound of Malfoy's shower and groaned. She tried very hard to ignore him but he was just so, so- so stupid for a lack of better words. He was annoying and sadly, Hermione thought less of him after every passing day.

She opened her dorm door and slowly began her way downstairs. Before she got even halfway down the stairs Malfoy came out of his bathroom. She shut her eyes and waited.

"Well morning to you Granger. Its rude to not look at someone when they're talking to you."

"Malfoy, I don't think you have any right to tell me what's rude." In her moment of anger, she turned around to look at him and he was half naked.

"Damnit Malfoy!" She yelled while covering her eyes. "I don't want to see that this early in the morning."

"You know you love it." She heard his footsteps, coming closer.

"Come any closer and I'll-"

"You'll what, throw a book at me." He was standing right in front of her now and she could see his feet through her slightly parted fingers. She sighed and just dropped her hands to her sides. If he wanted to play she could play too. Due to him being about three steps above her on the staircase she had to look up to see him.

"You've got me Malfoy," She said while walking to meet him, when she reached the step he was on she smiled at him. "I've wanted you for sometime now. I just want to tie you down and shag you senseless."

His mouth twitched and then turned into a smirk. "Your funny Granger, calling my blush are you?"

"Oh no Malfoy, I'm completely serious." She leaned over and whispered in his ear, "I want you so badly I just might.." She bit his ear playfully, "So you do you want to do something about it."

He pushed her away and scowled. She took in the pleasant site of his slightly flushed face, and she smirked at him. "Have I gotten you all hot and bothered before class. Sorry Malfoy, go take a cold shower," and with that she ran back into her room after deciding a shower could wait. Dressing quickly, she ran out of the dorm like a bat out of hell.

When she finally reached the great hall, she was breathless. She sat down heavily besides Harry and looked across the table at Ron, who was currently stuffing his face.

"Morning Mione." Harry said while buttering some toast.

"Morning Harry." Malfoy walked in and she couldn't help but smirk in his direction. He looked at her and sneered. She did a very un-hermione thing by sticking her tongue out at him.

"Uh, Mione. What's going on with Malfoy and You."

"Oh I just peeved him off for a while. For once I actually had the upper hand." Harry laughed.

Classes went by as usual, but then of course there was potions, which was always interesting.

" 25 points from Gryffindor for Mr.Longbottoms complete idiocy." Snape said while casting a charm on the table Neville had just burned a whole through.

She looked at him in pity but kept stirring her Delusion Draught. She checked the time and added her crushed beetle wings. When she had let that simmer for a few more minutes she poured a small amount into a vial and carefully put it on Snapes desk.

She saw Malfoy do the same before he resumed his seat behind her. When he sat down, he leaned forward slightly so that she could feel his breath tickling her ear. He whispered to her, "Granger keep doing what you did to me this morning, and maybe I will change my mind about you."

She kept her breathing even then spoke. " Malfoy if you keep saying things like that to me I might help you change your mind about me." She knew that was the right thing to say, because it caught him right of guard.

He pulled away quickly as if she was a disease. She saw the look of disgust on his face and her lips curled into a triumphant smile. The rest of class they kept their eyes off each other.

She shook her head as she walked into their common room, why was she dwelling on it?

She walked into their common room and she saw him standing by the stairs leading to her room. She quirked an eyebrow at him and said " What can I help you with Malfoy?"

He grabbed her by her shoulders and pushed her against the wall. His lips were not even an inch away when he whispered "With this." Then he did what shed only dreamed of; he lowered his lips to hers
