Hermione stretched in the bed, trying to wake up. Someone was missing by her side, and she wondered where Helena was. Hermione sat up in bed, slightly groggy, when she heard the front door open. She moved out of bed and wondered if Helena was about to leave.
"What are you doing, Helena," Hermione questioned politely, resting up against the door to the bedroom. Helena looked back at her. "Not leaving, are you?" She smirked by Helena's attire: it was Hermione's (Daniel's) shirt and she was looking quite… sweet in it.
"No, Daniel, there's a visitor," Hermione stood tall, knowing that this situation was really bad. A few moments passed and then Severus Snape himself passed Helena in the door. "What are you doing?" Helena laughed by Severus's wand, and Hermione only prayed that Severus would have enough sense not to make a scene in front of a muggle.
"Holy crap!" Hermione was faced with one pissed Severus Snape, "um… Helena please go to the bedroom," asked Hermione politely. This was not a good thing and Helena really shouldn't see this. Severus's wand was in his hand and firmly pointed at Hermione. She could see the anger in his eyes, and she knew she was fucked. She would never be able to deal with him and win, never in a lifetime. She wished to the trees in the forbidden forest that he'd get it over with quickly; she'd rather avoid too much pain. Wait a minute, Hermione mused, what is he doing here anyway? It's my life! Severus could go kick a hare for all Hermione cared. Shit a rabbit, paint McGonagall's owl.
"Daniel," she protested, but Severus cut her off from further speech.
"Perhaps you should collect your clothes and leave," Hermione was torn and she looked like it too. This situation and was bad, and she knew it. Severus Snape was not a man dealing easy with. Severus had lowered his wand, hiding it again, and Helena was looking at Hermione to make the next move.
"Just go, Helena," Hermione scoffed and Helena threw Hermione a confused and annoyed glare as she made her way to the bedroom. No wonder why, it was night and she was being thrown out. Hermione tried to avoid Severus's piercing gaze, but it was hard. His eyes bore into her and she felt like being back at Hogwarts again, almost. This hatred was nothing like she had ever seen before, and it made her angry. Why the hell did he care what she, or he, was doing? He should bloody buttpluck out of it! Helena came back, dressed, and left the apartment. The second she had left Severus raised his wand again.
"Where's Hermione? Why are you cheating on her?" Hermione knew that low voice very well, but this time it was trembling slightly, as if in hurt. Hermione was shocked when the realisation hit her: Severus was in love with her. Could that really be? Holy mother Teresa and the three wise men!
"Hermione is… out…" Hermione rubbed her face, trying to clear her mind. What did Severus act mean? Could he really be in love with her? She felt intrigued by the thought. Kinky thoughts came to her mind.
"So she's out and you think you can go cheat on her?" Severus questioned, the edge of his voice loaded with hatred. Hermione knew she had to protect herself, and so she slowly went to get her wand from the drawer in her desk. "I knew you weren't a muggle," he sneered, and Hermione gulped. Perhaps she'd have a better chance if she had pretended to be unable to fend for herself.
"Shut up! You're just her professor, her ex-professor!" Hermione exclaimed, and ducked just in time for Severus's spell to miss. Severus watched her, getting angrier as the time went.
"I might be her professor," he sneered, "-but I still have Hermione's best interests in my heart…"
"You don't have a heart!" Hermione said, suddenly confused about all this. Within few days he had suddenly changed from being a bastard to being caring, why? Severus's wand was pointed right at Hermione's chest and she knew she'd have to use magic if he fired a spell, and then they'd end up in a duel, which couldn't happen. She couldn't take the risk of being exposed. If they started duelling then the muggle police would be called by, most likely, neighbours and then Aurors would come and so on.
"You don't know me, so I advise you to shut up!" Hermione wished she could tell him otherwise, but she was just as mad as Severus was, except her breathing was under control. "You're the one who's cheating her!"
"It's none of your business!" Hermione informed coldly.
"Oh but it is!" His face was blank, showing no feelings and Hermione somehow genuinely feared for her safety. She knew Severus wouldn't kill or torture her, but there were so many other things he could do... Like shrink her and put her into a jar with onions! "Hermione is a clever witch and she deserves better, not a deceiving fool as you!" Hermione stood stunned at looked at Severus. That was the first compliment she had ever gotten, and it wasn't even given to her directly. She felt her heart bristle with joy. Woohoo!
"Who's better? You?" She had to know. She had to know the truth about Severus's feelings towards her. A silence followed where Severus seemed oblivious to what to say "You like her, don't you?" Hermione asked surprised. She had thought that it might be a possibility that he might like her, but this was so openly, there was no hiding!
"No, I do NOT like Hermione," he really didn't sound convincing and Hermione sensed victory coming.
"Then why would you care?" Why couldn't he just tell the truth? Hermione wondered angrily. If he didn't like her then he shouldn't interfere with her life! She was feeling so frustrated and angered by Severus's actions. Why was he being so impossible? If she hadn't become a homomagus then none of this would've happened!
"You're lucky that I don't hurt you!" That was the first time Hermione had only heard him yell, and it wasn't really a yell, but close. Severus lowered his wand and slid towards the door and left the apartment.
Hermione stood back motionless after Severus had left. She was confused and unable to understand what had just happened. She knew she needed to change into her female form and get back to Hogwarts, at least before Severus became too aware that she hadn't been home and then begin wonder of her whereabouts. A few flicks of her wand later and then her home was cleared. She changed clothes and left the apartment through the backdoor. Once outside she Apperated to the Hogwarts grounds and almost hurried up to the castle. The corridors were dark at night, even though it was a bright summer night. Hermione's steps echoed as she scurried through the halls, her shadow was stretched by the last glow from the enchanted candles, which lit the corridors.
She found Severus sitting by his desk in his office, sipping of a glass of fire-whisky. She knew what was wrong with him: he was jealous, and she was sure of it.
"Severus?" She greeted, trying to sound as if she had no clue of what had happened. Severus's head snapped up in surprised, his dark eyes glittering at her oddly, and then he stood. He threw his glass into the hearth of his fireplace and swept over to Hermione. Once right in front of her he leaned down and kissed her, roughly and tenderly with a mix of suppressed passion like a lion violently attacking a zebra, or gazelle, or antelope or…
He moved away, ignoring how sweet she looked with her mouth half-open and her eyes glittering in surprise.
"Your boyfriend is cheating on you," he informed her, regaining his oh so fearsome composure.
"So you just think that kissing me makes me even with him?" Hermione questioned with a raised brow.
"I suppose not…" he muttered, wondering what the fuck he had done.
"I think I does!" She informed and moved to kiss him again, but he pulled away. "What? He can go a shit a kitten for all I care!" She informed and Severus raised an eyebrow by her statement.
"You mean I've fought a war against your boyfriend and won?" He questioned surprised. "I didn't even know I had feelings for you before Daniel came along," Severus informed incredulously and Hermione thought things were getting rather sentimental.
"Really?" She asked with mock-interest, she had better things on her mind than talking. "I think it turned out for the best then," and she forced her arms around him and forced their lips together. He succumbed right away and soon they ended up on the stone floor, utterly oblivious to anything else than each other. Clothes were shed and moans were cried, and Hermione and Severus had completely forgotten to cast an anti-pregnancy spell. It's odd how things tend to fall down in groups instead of one at a time; like the domino effect.
Dirty dogs those two are! So, take your time to review! This was a happy ending!
