A/n: Heya!ü Last Chapter here.ü Thank you for hanging on till the last chapie. It's been great to serve you all. Here goes...
Speak of the Devil.
Malfoy? How the hell did he get in?
"Hermione!" He called out again.
"How the hell did you get in?" I suddenly blurted. He must've known our password. But that's impossible. It just can't be.
"I have my ways, Potter. Just as you have yours." Draco Malfoy answered back.
I stared back at Hermione. She was dazed at him.
"What the hell do you want?" Ron suddenly stepped up. I can sense his temper rising above limit.
"I just need to talk to Hermione."
"Since when did you start calling her by her first name? You have no right!" Ron answered back. I looked back at Hermione again; she was starting to pull herself together.
"Hermione, what's going on?" I asked her. She just looked at me and gave me an apologetic look.
What on earth is happening?
This is unbelievable! He's been terrorizing our lives for the past six years and now he actually terrorized our common room!
"You're going too far there, Malfoy." I warned him. I am totally ready to kill him.
"You don't understand. I just need a word with her." He suddenly said. He looked like he was begging!
I can't understand. I am not getting this. I turned to Hermione and Harry. They both looked shock.
"Hermione, what's going on?"
Everyone in the common room looked at her. She's the know-it-all Gryffindor anyway. She probably knows what the hell Malfoy is doing here.
I don't know what he is doing here.
Oh boy, Hermione's in deep shit.
The Devil's in deep shit.
I'm in deep shit.
"I just need to talk to her."Dracosaid again tothe already confused Ron.
I have to do something! Don't I?
"What's in it for you, Malfoy? Why the hell do you want to talk to her!" Ron asked his face red in rage. I couldn't blame him.
"Ron, please..." I finally muttered. "Just leave him be."
I sensed Draco's stare weigh down on me.
Ron turned to me too. "Hermione! After all he's done to you--"
"Ron!" Harry interjected. He seemed to understand. He gave Ron a short message and walked to Draco.
What the hell is Harry going to do with him!
"If you do something terrible to Hermione, I'll hunt you down." I told him, grabbing his collar. He looked at me straight in the eyes, his face so stubbornly hard. He never lets his guard down. "I don't know how you got here, but I'll give you a chance. But don't you dare lay a finger on her."Something indeed happened to them. And I hope it's not the worst. Or the impossible
Draco shrugged off Harry's grip and walked towards Hermione, holding her hand, pulling her to the door.
Ron just watched them in shock.
"You just let him go?" Ron screamed at Harry as they stepped outside. Harry just stared at the door. "He trespassed our common room, he never endingly did nothing but be a pain in our asses, why are you letting him go?"
Harry couldn't help it but sigh. "I think I know what's going on here."
Ginny stepped forward to Harry and laid a hand on his shoulder. "I could see it in their eyes. This is one heck of a breakthrough."
Ron and the other Gryffindors stared at them. "What the heck are you two talking about?"
Harry turned to Ron and smiled. "They love each other." He whispered.
Standing opposite each other, Hermione just stared at him, not knowing what to say. He just stared back and sighed.
"Um... listen... I..."
"What are you doing here?" She suddenly cut him off.
He looked nervous. "I needed to see you."
"I looked all over for you this morning. I never found you." She muttered. "Look, this may cause you detention. You better get back to your common room. We could talk about this tom—"
"I can't wait until tomorrow." He crudely shut her up. "I don't care about detention. Let McGonagall know I'm here. I just need to say something."
"Then say it." She uttered.
He paused, as if to think, and sighed dejectedly. "Why are we doing this?"
"This! Why can't we just be together?" He blurted out. He couldn't help it any more. "Why can't I keep you? Why can't you be with me? I tried to change! You had faith in me, Hermione! I can change if you want to!" He gulped a load of air, settling himself. "You were the best thing that has ever happened to me. It was a big mistake treating you like that before..."
"I don't care about how you treated me before. I have forgotten that."
"Then why don't you stay with me? Why are we living like we're still... enemies?"
"I... I..." She honestly doesn't know.
"I don't want to lose you, Hermione. You're all I have." He muttered, grabbing her, wrapping his arms around her. "Please... I love you."
She felt her knees weaken as she heard those three words. She remembered the two wonderful weeks they spent together. Something occurred to her when they talked for the first time in the cliff. She wanted to heal his sorrows. And now she did, she couldn't let him go.
As he held her tight, his face buried in her neck, tears started to roll down her cheeks.
"I'm sorry... I'm sorry..." She muttered, her sobs getting harder. "I just wanted to make you happy. I didn't know it would turn out this way..."
"What are you saying?" He held her cheeks, wiping off her tears.
"I messed you up. I confused you. I..."
"That's bullshit Hermione!" He shushed her, placing a finger on her lips. "You are the best thing that happened in my life. It's stupid of me not telling you this before. But I don't care what other people will think! I will get along with your friends! I will do anything! I don't care what Crabbe or Goyle or Pansy will say about it. Even my Father. I don't care about them all! But I love you. I can't change that." He caressed her cheek. "I want to be with you. I want to have children with you. I want to grow old and die with you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you and our children. That's all I want. That's all I need."
Almost paralyzed with mild shock and amusement, she juststared at him and sighed, touching her brow to his, their noses tickling. She couldn't help but cry.
"Children?" She smiled, as she sniffled her runny nose.
He sighed calmly and smiled. "Yes, children."
"How many do you want?" She asked.
"A hundred." He chuckled and tucked her hazel hair behind her ear.
"I can't bear one hundred children in my belly." She laughed. "Maybe 99 will be just fine."
Draco chuckled and kissed her softly. "So... you are saying you love me?"
Hermione looked at him and grinned. "I loved you ever since." She muttered, kissing him this time.
Harry smiled as all of the Gryffindors peeped through the small window embarked on the door, all anxious about what's happening.
The impossible has happened. He muttered in his mind. Well, it's not that bad, I guess. She would love him with a reason.
He sat down, grabbed a book and started to read.
He had to prepare to meet a new friend.
