Hermione couldn't believe she was serving a detention with Draco Malfoy. This was his fault entirely! Wait until she saw him next, she would use Ginny's bat bogey curse on him.
"Hagrid, can't you send me back to the castle and say that I have served my detention?" Hermione asked upon reaching Hagrid's hut.
"Now Hermione, you know I can't do that. Besides this will be over before you know it." Hagrid said cheerfully. All the joy was soon sucked out of Hermione and Hagrid when Malfoy showed up for detention.
"My father will hear about this!" Was the first thing that he spat out. Hagrid rolled his eyes and Hermione made a cluck of annoyance.
"How many detentions have you served and your father hasn't been able to stop one, so please we don't want to hear about your father the death eater!" Hermione said. Draco was on the verge of replying when Hagrid stepped in between the two fighting teens.
"Look, lets just get this over with okay? We're looking for an injured thestral. Please keep to the paths, and fallow Fang if you can't find me." With that, Hermione and Draco followed Hagrid into the forest. However their arguing continued. Hagrid was surprised at Hermione, because she usually kept her composure. He was just at his wits end, when suddenly it was quiet. Suspiciously quiet. He turned around and found that Fang was his only company. Hermione and Draco had vanished into thin air.
Draco and Hermione had not vanished at all, but they had been charmed away, and before either of them knew what was happening, they were standing in some sort of throne room.
"You have disrupted my peace." The voice was from a woman, and she was beautiful. Tall and dressed in what looked like a dress full of stars.
"Your peace! But we have now idea who you are!" Draco said rudely.
"Please mum, we're terribly sorry, but we have to return to school." Hermione said politely. The woman stared at them for a while and then replied.
"I don't think you will be returning to school quite so fast. You two need to learn how to work together , among other things. You have twelve tasks that you must finish, I trust that you two have read a great deal, because your tasks will become apparent once I have placed you where you need to be. There are twelve in all, and you will not return, until all have been completed." All of a sudden, Hermione and Draco felt themselves falling, as if traveling by port key.
Draco finally opened his eyes, and noticed it was a beautiful day.
"Ugh, what a dream!" he said climbing out of bed. He was well on his way to the bathroom, when he realized that he was not in his dormitory at Hogwarts, but in a huge palatial room, with a sumptuous king sized bed. Before he had time to truly digest what had happened, a servant walked into the room.
"Your highest must dress quickly, the king and queen are demanding to see you at once."
Draco blinked and then said "Where the hell am I?"
