Chapter One: The Fight

It was finally over. The war between good and evil. The prophesized fight. The Final Battle. And seventeen year old Harry Potter fought, overcame, and lived to tell the tale. He had beat Voldemort and many Death Eaters were put in Azkaban or sentenced to the Dementor's Kiss.

The whole magical world was thrown into celebration. It had been their greatest victory for good and thankfully, there had been very, very few losses. Nearly everyone who followed Harry into battle returned, causing even more celebration.

As thankful and joyous as Harry should have been, he wasn't. He couldn't be. Not after what she did. He knew he should have confronted her but he couldn't. If it had been anyone else, he would have. But not her. So he avoided her. As she stood staring out the window of the boy's dormitory, he couldn't stop himself from thinking of the situation…or her. He got so lost in his thoughts, he didn't hear her open the door, cross the room, and sit on his bed.

"Harry." God her voice. It alone could make him weak at the knees. "Harry, why are you avoiding me? I know you are. Out of every wizard or witch anywhere celebrating, you should be the one celebrating most. But you're not. Harry, please talk to me."

Her voice nearly broke his heart. The pain and hurt stood out as though she screamed it. He wanted to hug her, kiss her, and apologize for everything. He wanted to tell her everything he felt. But he couldn't…he wouldn't let himself.

"I don't want to talk to you."

"Why not? What did I do? Harry tell me please, I don't understand!"

He exploded. All his built up anger boiled over and he couldn't stop himself. "What did you do? God do you really not get it? I'll say it slowly. I do not want to talk to you! It's really not that hard to understand."

You don't even have the courage to look at her. But it is her isn't it? That's you excuse isn't it? 'It's not my fault! She was the one who screwed everything up! Besides, she always had a power over me she didn't know about.' You coward.

"Harry, why are you being like this? We're best friends, why can't-"

"Yeah well we aren't anymore! Just leave me the hell alone Hermione!"

The room went dead silent. Hermione couldn't believe he had said that. She still didn't understand but stood up anyway. "Ok Harry. I'll leave you alone." She walked toward the door but stopped when she reached it and looked back at him once more. "Just so you know, I still love you. I'll always be here for you if you don't want to be left alone. Always."

She turned and opened the door just as her tears started to fall. She walked out the door, not knowing Harry was watching her. He grabbed his lamp and threw it at the door as hard as he could. He sunk down to the ground, hugged his knees, and cried until he ran out of tears.
