Rating: R (For later chapters)
Hermione stood at the window in her room thinking of horrible ways to deal with Lavender. Thoughts of dismemberment and torture came to her mind and she smiled. Her wonderful thoughts were interrupted when her door opened and Draco appeared.
"What the Hell do you want?" She glared at him.
Draco smirked, "Now Granger, don't be bitter. Hollins wants to see you."
"Tell her to fuck off." Hermione barked.
"Such language…am I gonna have to drag you out of this room?"
Hermione glared at him for a minute before finally following him to Dr. Hollin's office. Hermione sat down and stared at the doctor.
"So, you ready to tell me why you are really here?" Dr. Hollins asked with an annoying smile.
"I already told you why I am here. I don't expect you to believe me, but it's the truth. I went through Hell the first time to kick this habit, do you really think I would do it to myself all over again?"
"Sometimes it just can't be helped. Some people are just too wea-"
Hermione cut her off, "I am not weak. I got through this alive the first time. That's more than can be said for a lot of people!"
Dr. Hollins just looked at her for a moment, "Would you like to call someone? I don't imagine many people know you are here."
"I would like to call my boyfriend."
"Ok. Go up to the nurse's station and tell them and they will call him for you."
Hermione gave the nurse Harry's number and waited for him to answer.
"Oh my god Hermione; I've been so worried about you! What happened to you, where are you?"
Hermione looked at the nurse, "What's the address here?"
"Who are you talking to? What's going on Hermione?" Harry wanted to know.
Hermione told him the address, "Please just come here. I'll explain it all when you get her."
"Just tell me one thing; are you ok?"
"Please Harry, just come to the address I gave you."
"Ok; I'll be there soon. I love you."
A tear rolled down Hermione's face, "I love you too."
Thirty minutes later, Hermione was still pacing when she heard the front door open. Her heart stopped when she saw the look on Harry's face when he walked in. When he saw her, he stopped walking and just stood there, with a look that could only be described as pain. He turned to leave and Hermione ran up to him crying.
"Harry, please don't go; let me explain."
Harry slowly turned around, but he wouldn't look at her, "No explanation needed, I can see for myself."
"No, it's not like that, I didn't put myself here. Please let me explain; I didn't do this to myself!"
Harry laughed bitterly, "Do you actually expect me to believe that!?"
"No I don't, but it's the truth. I've never lied to you Harry." Hermione's tears were streaking down her face.
"After all I went through for you…. after all we went through! How could you do this!?" Harry's face was bright red now.
Hermione tried to take his hand, but he jerked it away from her and walked out. Hermione just stood there and watched him leave. She didn't know what to do; she did sound crazy. Who in their right mind would believe the story that she was telling? The doctor didn't believe her, Harry didn't believe her, and Hermione was starting to doubt herself. She shook that thought out of her head almost immediately; she knew that she was telling the truth. She was going to get out of here, she was going to find Lavender and she was going to make the bitch wish she had never been born.
Dr. Hollins put her arm around Hermione's shoulder, "It's ok; he's just upset. He'll be back."
Hermione stepped out of her reach, "I know he will."
"I'm not the enemy Ms. Granger; I'm just trying to help you."
"You really want to help me? Let me out of here so I can go kill the skank that put me in here."
"Why don't we start with something else? It's time for group therapy."
Hermione gave the doctor a flat look, "You're joking; there is no way that I'm going to group therapy."
"I'm afraid you don't have a choice; it's part of your rehabilitation." Hollins pointed at a room and Hermione just rolled her eyes and went in.
There were a bunch of girls sitting in chairs that were arranged in a circle. Hermione plopped into a chair and glared at Dr. Hollins. Hollins ignored the look and smiled at everyone.
"Ok ladies, we have a new addition to our group. This is Hermione."
A girl sitting directly across from Hermione snorted, "What the hell kind of name is Hermione?"
"Vanessa, that's enough." Hollin's looked at Hermione again, "Why don't you tell us a bit about yourself."
"What do you want to know?"
"Well, why do you think you ended up here? Do you think you could have made other choices that would have stopped you from ending up here?" Hollins asked.
Hermione looked at everyone for a minute, "Yea, I could have beat the shit out of the whore that put me here the first time I discovered she had a thing for my boyfriend."
"You think someone other than yourself put you here?" Hollins asked.
Hermione rolled her eyes, "Didn't we already go through this? I did not do this to myself! I've been in these shit holes too many times and I didn't want to come back! I finally had my life on track; do you really think I would throw it all away?"
Vanessa started laughing, "So you're saying that some girl put you here? What did she do, tie you up and force you to do drugs?"
Hermione had had enough "therapy" for one day, "I wasn't talking to you; mind your own business."
Hollins continued on for an hour and Hermione refused to participate. When all was over, Hermione left the room and was greeted by Vanessa
"So, are you really that deluded that you think someone else actually put you here?" Vanessa smiled.
Hermione gave Vanessa an amused look, "What can I say; you're right. There is nothing more I would rather do than spend all my time locked up in a prison with a coked out whore."
"You do realize how pathetic you sound don't you? I bet your boyfriend found out about your little…problem and he left you for some other chick. You couldn't handle it so you shot up, ended up here, and tried to blame it on them. Face is sweetheart; he doesn't want you anymore."
Vanessa had barely finished speaking when Hermione slammed Vanessa against the wall, grabbed her hair and jerked her head back. She went to slam Vanessa's head against the wall, but stopped just short of actually connecting her head and the wall. Hermione had Vanessa's arms behind her back when she whispered in her ear, "I would be very careful what you say to me right now if I were you. I am in a very…bad…mood."
Hermione released Vanessa and casually walked off to her room. Everything had happened so quickly, Draco and the other orderly had barely registered what was happening and then it was over. Draco saw Vanessa give him a look then she walked off, ignoring what all the other girls were saying. Draco watched Hermione disappear inside her bedroom then her headed off in Vanessa's direction.
After everyone had gone to bed, Hermione left her room and went on her own tour of the hospital. She climbed the stairs and headed towards the cafeteria. The closer she got the more she heard noises coming from inside. She quietly pushed the door open and went inside. Against the far wall she saw Draco leaning against a table with his head thrown back. His back was to her so she couldn't really tell what he was doing. Her question was answered when Draco stood up and buttoned his pants and shortly after she saw Vanessa stand up; It didn't take a genius to figure out what was going on. Hermione couldn't help but smirk; Draco always had been quite the ladies man from what she remembered. She saw Draco reach into his pocket and pull out a little tiny bottle. Hermione watched as Vanessa poured the contents onto the table and proceed to spread it out. She then bent down and practically made out with the table as she snorted up the contents of the bottle. Vanessa cleaned off her nose, gave the bottle back to Draco and then headed towards the door. Hermione quickly ducked out of sight and watched Vanessa disappear down the hall with a smile on her face.
"Enjoy the show Granger?" A voice whispered from behind her.
Hermione jumped and spun around to face Draco, "Why am I not surprised?"
Draco smirked at her, "I don't know; you tell me."
"Exactly how many girls are you…. servicing in here Malfoy?"
"I'm just helping them with their problems."
"So, you supply them with their drug of choice and they supply you with the pleasure of your choice. That about right?"
"You always were the smart one Granger."
Hermione smiled, "That always was my best quality."
Hermione's smile faded and she turned around and started walking away. Draco fell in step with her, "So… you interested?"
Hermione rolled her eyes, "Not a chance Malfoy. I kicked that habit a long time ago. As soon as Hollins realizes that, I'll be released and I'll be able to devote all my time on trying to destroy the skank that put me here."
Draco go insanely close to her and whispered in her ear, "Whether you did this to yourself or not, it's in your system again. And we both know that it's only a matter of time before your body is craving it again. When that happens, you know where to find me."
Draco walked passed her and left Hermione alone with her thoughts. As much as she hated to admit it, she knew that he was right. She knew that very soon her body would be screaming for more and it was going to kill her. Hermione shook that thought from her head; it wasn't going to happen. No matter what, Hermione was going to fight it again and she was going to win again; she had to.
