What's A Girl To Do?
"A dance if you will Miss Granger?"
Hermione looked up and soon Draco standing next to her giving her the smile that was just for her. To everyone else it seemed like his standard smirk, but to her it was the most beautiful thing in the world, the way his eyes shined and the tiny little dimples that just started to show on his cheeks. It really was just adorable.
"I'd love to," she said taking his hand, and letting him pull them onto the dance floor.
Ever since Ron and Harry had found out about them, they had felt no need to keep it to themselves, and Draco kissing her soundly in the middle of Diagon Alley had certainly let everyone know, and Rita Skeeter had gone to town with this latest news, and hardly a day went by without her slandering the pair. But Hermione didn't read Witch Weekly any more, so it didn't really bother her that much, it miffed Draco a bit, but as he told her, he was just happy to finally have his witch, so she could write whatever she liked, anyone who was close to the two of them, took it for what it was. Gossip. From a bitter old hag who didn't know how to let go of a grudge.
"Are you happy?" Draco asked her as he danced with her around the floor.
"Very," she smiled at him, and then looked through the people dancing till she found her, "She looks beautiful, doesn't she?"
"Absolutely," he said, keeping his eyes locked on her.
"Draco…" she said, turning his head, till he was looking at her.
"Yes, the little Weasley looks nice," he deadpanned.
"That's Potter now," Hermione teased, "Now there is two Potters."
"Heaven helps us," Draco moaned, "One was bad enough."
Hermione giggled at his antics, spotting another couple, "Ashlea seems like a nice girl," she said watching Fred dance with her.
"Yeah, she seems alright," Draco said, spinning them around so he could look at them. He hadn't really believed the twin when he said he had a girl. Why should he? It was very hard to believe, find your ex making out with another guy, what's your comeback? 'I met someone too'. Likely. But it did seem genuine now. And he was surprised, she didn't seem at all like Hermione. Which was good, he realised now, that he may not have been all that friendly to him at the time, and his brain wasn't really working at the time.
This girl didn't look anything like Hermione, for one she was blond, and her hair was a straight as a pin. He hated to say this, but she seemed a bit ditzy too, a girlier version of Luna Lovegood she was. With less upstairs compared to Luna though, who had been in Ravenclaw, so there must have been a brain in there.
So he was quite pleased that Fred didn't seem to be after his girl, not that he would have let him have her. No sir, she was not getting away now.
He looked down, and saw Hermione trying not to laugh, "What's so funny?"
"Nothing really," she said giggling, "I was just thinking how, a girls diary is such a private thing, and how happy I am that you read mine."
"I only read that bit," he admitted, "I was just looking at the back to make sure it was yours."
"Well that's a relief," she sighed, "I'm so glad you didn't read thebit where I talked about my crush on Vincent," she said seriously.
"What?" He spluttered, "Your crush on who?"
"No one but you," she smiled, "Vincent has turned out nice enough, but you are so much better for me."
"Damn right," he stated, "I was worried for a moment, and I hate having to beat up my friends."
"Well I'm only yours."
"Same here," he said, leaning down and kissing her, they stopped dancing and just stood together in the middle of the dance floor, savouring the feeling of being close with the one they had always wanted, and finally got.
♥That's the end. It was short, hopefully it didn't totally blow, I hate really bad endings, but I had to finish this one. Housekeeping if you will. I have other things I need to do/write, and I want to get the chaptered fics that are still going out of the way.
♥Thanks to all who kept on reading and reviewing this. I know it got bad in the middle, so I really appreciate all who stuck with it.
