Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter, I even do not own Draco Malfoy…unfortunately. I have to give it up to Miss Joanne Kathleen Rowling for those characters and plot of her series, she is the genius in which I derive my story from.Chap. 1 Graduation
'Can you believe it, Draco? After today, we'll be out of Hogwarts forever. It's so –'
'Exhilarating.' Draco said, interrupting his fiancée.
'I was going to say sad.' Hermione replied disappointingly. 'Aren't you going to miss it here?'
'Not especially…' Draco mumbled, playing with his graduation dress robes.
Hermione rolled her eyes and placed her hands upon Draco's so he would stop playing.
'You aren't going to miss all the fond memories?' She asked.
'Only a few…' He said winking at her, 'but other than those few "fond" memories, the majority of my memories are not anything special.'
'Well, I am sure today will be memorable." Hermione said with a smile.
Hermione graduated with the highest marks, Draco came close with second place. Dumbledore made a heart felt speech about all the many adventures he was able to encounter, especially with the help of Harry Potter, and his closest friends. He spoke about the unification between houses this year, which has made him very pleased. He also announced the fabulous death of Voldemort, and imprisonment of many death eaters, by the impressive actions of Harry, Hermione, Draco, Blaise, Ginny, Ron and Lavender. He also announced Draco and Hermione's engagement and wished them the best of luck.
After the ceremony everyone wandered the castle with friends and family, and treated themselves to the open buffet in the Great Hall.
Hermione found her family and hugged them.
'We're so proud of you, Hermione!' Anne cried grasping onto her daughter. 'And I hope we didn't end at a bad place when you came to visit us so long ago! We are truly happy for you and Draco! Where is he anyway?'
'Draco is looking for his mother, Narcissa. I'm sure he's found her by now.' Hermione stated.
'How is he doing, with Lucius' rightful captivity?' Richard asked.
'He's fine with it. Draco is the one who sent him to Azkaban. Draco knows his father deserves to be there.'
'This place is just exploding with fine-looking guys!' Krista cried, suddenly running up to them.
'There you are,' Bradin moaned, 'Where have you been?'
'Looking around…' Krista said with a wink.
Neville walked up to the group, hair disheveled.
'Oh, mom, dad, this is Neville.' Krista said happily.
'Neville?' Hermione asked, giggling. 'You went off and snogged Neville Longbottom?'
'Well why not?' Krista asked. 'No, he's definitely not Draco, but he'll do. Shall we have another go, Neville?'
He nodded ecstatically. Krista grabbed his hand and they ran off.
'Oh my gosh…that was…freaky.' Hermione stated. 'Mum, dad, you really need a leash for Krista.'
'Yes, I think that would be a good idea.'
'I'm so glad you and Krista were able to take a break from school to come to this.' Hermione said to Bradin.
'I wouldn't miss my little sister's graduation!' Bradin said. 'Even if she is being foolish by being engaged at such a young age…'
'Bradin!' Richard said threateningly.
'Yeah, right. Sorry.' Bradin said with a shrug.
Draco then walked up to Hermione and tapped her.
'Draco, there you are!' She said with a smile. 'Where is your mother?'
'She's not here.' He replied. He then noticed Hermione's family standing there. 'Oh, hello.'
'Nice to see you again, Draco.' Anne said with a pleasant smile.
'Congratulations.' Bradin and Richard stated.
'Thanks.' Draco replied with a forced smile.
'Wait, where is your mother? Is something wrong?' Hermione asked.
'My mother just owled Dumbledore to inform me she can't make it because she had to "claim" my father.'
'My father died early this morning, in Azkaban.'
'What? Oh, Draco,' Hermione said sadly. She hesitated, not sure what Draco was feeling. 'I know he was a horrible father, but nonetheless your father and I am sorry.'
Hermione wrapped her arms around Draco.
'Yes, we're sorry too.' Anne stated. She looked over at Richard who had a smile on his face. Anne elbowed him sharply. 'Aren't we, Richard?'
'Yes, mmhm, so sorry to hear about Lucius, young chap.' Richard said quickly.
'Thanks, but it's okay. I'm not phased, it's just that I am worried about my mother.' He said. He then looked back at Hermione, 'I came to tell you that I am leaving to go see her.'
'Draco, I know it's a hard time for you, and especially your mother, but I would love to come with you, help if I could. I have been waiting to meet your mother for so long.' Hermione said. 'If it's something you want to do on your own, I understand, but I will go.'
'Sure, Hermione. You can come, I'd love to have you keep me company. It'd be good for you to meet my mother. And I'm sure she'd love to see that I've decided to settle down with someone like you.'
'Someone like you?' Bradin asked, 'What's that supposed to mean?'
'It's a good thing.' Draco replied.
'Oh, sorry.' Bradin said looking away.
Draco then shook hands with Richard and Bradin, and hugged Anne.
'I'm sorry to steal your daughter away so soon, but I'm sure it won't be long before she is returned to you.' Draco said with a grin.
'It's fine,' Anne smiled, 'we understand that we have to share her from now on.'
Hermione smiled brightly, holding on to Draco's hand proudly.
'Tell Krista thanks for coming, even though she didn't stay around long.' Hermione smiled.
'Oh yeah, where is that mischievous sister of yours?' Draco asked looking around.
'Off with Neville.'
'Oh off with Nevile…Off with Neville! As in Longbottom?' Draco asked incredulously.
'The one and only.' Hermione replied.
Hermione said goodbye to her family then walked off with Draco.
She held Draco's hand close to her and kissed his cheek as they walked.
'Draco, I love you so much…' She whispered to him.
People were bustling all around them, students, families, teachers, so they walked fast, so not to be stopped to talk.
'Hermione, my mother is strong, but I think she is going to be at a fragile state when you meet her. Although my father abused her, she still loved him so don't be disappointed if she isn't cheery and bubbly like you, okay?' Draco told her.
'Oh, I know, Draco. I am not going to be loud and obnoxious when I meet her or anything, either, don't worry. I realize your mother is probably hurting, I'll be gentle.'
'Good.' He said smiling at her. 'Oh, and I love you too.'
Hermione and Draco left Hogwarts and saw a big, black, rich European luxury car. When they neared the car a man dressed in a tuxedo came out and opened the door for them.
'Thank you,' Hermione said to the man.
Once inside the nice car, Hermione asked Draco, 'How did this man know to bring a car up for you?'
'Oh, I called him after Dumbledore gave me the owl from my mother. I knew I would be leaving to see her.'
'This is a very nice car.' Hermione commented.
'My family has money.' He said sadly. 'We'll have things like this, I promise.'
'Draco, I don't need things like this to make me happy. I know your father took away your inheritance, but you are all I need, I promise. Sure, a huge manor and expensive possessions are nice, but I don't need them.'
'I'm sorry.' He told her.
'Don't be. I was never used to these things anyway, be more worried about yourself.'
'"I will survive. As long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive".'
Hermione laughed loudly.
'You know that muggle song.'
'I may have heard it a few times…' He said a grin, and pulled her into his body and kissed her in her hair.
'I wish I could change…' Hermione sighed, 'I don't want to meet your mother like this.'
'I don't have my things.'
'Accio Hermione's trunk.' Draco spoke.
Hermione's trunk, full of clothes, appeared before them.
'Oh! Draco! You are so brilliant, I am so dense sometimes.'
Draco laid back as Hermione searched through her items. As she dug, a black lace bra fell from her trunk, she didn't notice, but Draco did.
He sneakily caught the strap on his shoe and pulled it towards him. He lifted it up and exaimined it thoroughly.
'Ooh, 34C, eh? Nice size…and push up too!'
Hermione whipped around and turned a dangerous shade of rosy pink when she saw what he held.
'Draco! Give that to me!'
He held it from her reach.
'Not without a kiss…'
She scowled and leaned in to kiss him.
'Oh, c'mon, Hermione. You are scowling. I don't want a kiss from a scowling person, it's not enjoyable for both parties then.'
'Draco, just give me my bra.'
Hermione smiled fakely.
'Now, I'll take that kiss.' He told her.
She crawled up on his lap and began to lean in to kiss him, but then her knee "accidentally" slipped into his groin.
'Oh!' He cried, 'Hermione! Off! Off!'
'Give me my bra!'
Draco threw the black lacy brassiere to the other side of the vehicle.
'Thank you.' She replied.
She got off of him and grabbed her bra.
He squeezed his legs together in pain.
'That was mean.' He said he said in an unusually high pitched voice.
'You have to learn, Mr. Malfoy, that you do not dominate and control every aspect of this relationship.' Hermione said with a grin.
'I don't know what to wear…what will your mum like?' Hermione asked.
'She won't care what you're wearing.' Draco said, 'Maybe if she was her normal self, she would, but she probably won't care right now.'
'Oh…well, I still want to look presentable.' Hermione said.
She then pulled out a white pleated skirt and a blue sweater.
'That's sexy.' Draco said.
'I don't want to be sexy. I need to be virginal.'
'Virginal?' Draco asked, 'I am afraid that you can no longer be classified as "virginal", now that Draco Malfoy has ravished you.'
She grinned at him.
'I meant I needed to look like a good girl.'
'Well, it's sexy to me, good-girl to my mom.'
'Are you sure?' Hermione asked.
'Yes, now hurry and change we're almost there.'
'Here?' Hermione asked.
'No, we'll turn around, go back to Hogwarts, let you change, then travel back here again…YES here!'
'But…but…' She then whispered, 'the driver will see me.'
'No he won't, he's instructed to face the road, and he will.' Draco said leaning back, placing his hands behind his head and grinning, 'Now change.'
She smirked at him.
'A little antsy, are we?' She asked, removing her robes.
'No. I just want to see you naked, I haven't seen you in your birthday suit in some time and I miss it.'
'Well, I am keeping undergarments on.' She replied.
'That's fine. I'll use my imagination for the rest of it.' He chuckled.
She laughed and threw her shirt at him, leaving her sitting in slacks and her bra.
She then removed her slacks and threw those at Draco. He held her robes, shirt and pants and watched his fiancée in her underwear lustfully.
Unfortunately, for Draco, Hermione dressed quickly. She looked beautiful, and "pure".
'You look fantastic.' Draco said removing his robes, so he was in a white button-up dress shirt and black slacks.
'Oh…there it is…' Hermione said when the manor came into view. 'What if she doesn't like me?'
'She'll love you.' Draco said.
'How do you know?'
'She loves anything I do.'
