Marrying Thy Enemy
Hermione Granger's alarm clock woke her up suddenly at 7:30! She reached out to grab it, and through it across her bedroom. She then got up to get a shower, and get dressed, ready to start her first day of her sixth year summer vacation.
After about 20 minutes, she ran down the staircase of her home in London, starving for her mom's good, home-made breakfast. At school she had never really noticed how much she missed her mom's pancakes and bacon. So, with hungry eyes, she began to take in all of the wonderful food.
It was only then that she looked up to see the pained expression on her mother and father's faces. Their faces held a large amout of dread, and she couldn't help but ask what was wrong with them.
"Mom, Dad. What's the matter with you guys? I thought you would be happy that it was my summer break and all...", she questioned then, and when neither her mom or dad replied, she noticed the letter that was lying on the kitchen table.
It looked as though it was a pretty formal letter, if formal was the word to use for it. It had a large emblem on the front. It seemed to be a large letter M in strange, golden ink. Hermione began to wonder what was written on that letter, and felt that it had to do with the worried expressions on her parents faces.
Her mom noticed that she was looking at the letter, then handed it to her," You might want to read this honey, then your father and I need to have a long talk with you about something".
Hermione took the letter, and saw that it indeed was addressed to her. She looked up at her mother, and stood up to go sit in the living room. Hermione placed her self on the couch, and slowly opened the letter, and read:
Dear Miss Hermione Granger,
Since your seventeeth birthday will take place on September the 15th, I would like to invite you to the Malfoy Manor to celebrate this grand occassion, and to discuss your betrothel to my son, Draco. I will be setting up a floo passage to your home, and I ask that you bring all of your belongings, since you will be staying here for the rest of your break.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
Hermione felt tears coming to her eyes, and began to yell angrily at her parents, "What the heck is this all about! Would someone like to tell me what all of this means!" Her parents looked very upset, so they came to sit infront of her on the loveseat.
"Hermione, there is something that your mother and I would like to explain to you". Hermione mumbled under her breathe, "well, obviously."
"Alright then", her mom spoke up," I am going to tell you something that will came as a big shock, but I ask that you don't interrupt, and let me finish first". Hermione nodded her head to show that she understood, and her mom began.
"Well, I guess it is always better to start from the beginning, so her goes...A while back, before you were born, we were contacted by a strange man by the name of Albus Dumbledore. Well this Dubledore person was very oddly dressed, and acted in a very odd way, so he began to tell us of the the wizarding world...your world Hermione. At the time I was pregnant with you, so he told me another bit of startling information. He said that the child I was carrying would one day become the greatest witch known, and would help to save his world in the last war against some sort of dark evil," Hermione was shocked by this news, and she motioned for her mother to continue on,"So that is how we came to know a man by the name of Lucius Malfoy. At the time your father and I were going through some hard times, we didn't have enough money to support us. So this Malfoy fellow loaned us money, and we had to pay a dear price for it. It just so happened that a disease was spreading through, what did he call it...oh yes "Pureblood" women. This disease was causing them not to get pregnant, and therefore have no children to carry on the family name. He decided that, for repayment, that we would have our daughter engaged to his son, so that she could have children, so as to carry on his family name. And that is where you come in".
Her mother stopped long enough for Hermione to start crying softly. Her mom saw this, so she decided to fastly finish her story," So, since you will be turning seventeen, the legal age in the wizarding world, you and Lucius' son, Draco, will be engaged, married, and have children together."
At this, Hermione flung herself into her mother's arms, and sat there crying, only to be comforted by the soft sound of someone saying," It'll be okay..."
Alright, so what do you think so far? Please review so that I'll know if I should continue this story or not!
