Chapter 3 - Ginny, The Matchmaker
"Ah, the power of vocal cords!" Ginny thought to herself as she lounged in the Gryffindor Common Room, on a couch.
"Who would have known that Hermione, Ms. Shy Innocent Bookworm, had it in her to tell someone her feelings? And wasn't it a coincidence that the certain someone just so happened to be Draco Malfoy? I think not. Well, of course I had to give her a push and a threat, but hey, who has to know?" Ginny let her thoughts drift back to the day when she had discovered the love between Draco and Hermione.
Flashback . . .
Hermione and Ginny were having their weekly girl talk on the last Friday of January and the topic just so happened to be their latest love interests. Ginny was getting tired of asking Hermione to tell her the name of her guy, so Ginny decided to call it a night. Since they were in the Gryffindor Common Room, Hermione had to leave to return to her Head dorm. While Hermione left, Ginny quickly ran up to her room and grabbed Harry's invisibility cloak that he had lent her. She ran back downstairs and out the portrait hole. By the time she entered the long hall that the Head's Common Room was located, she saw a head of brown hair enter, and the portrait slam shut. Ginny ran up to the knight in the painting and began to try to guess the password:
"Ok, how about, . . . Silver?"
"How about lemon drops?" That seemed to be the password to everything.
"No. My dear girl, I must ask, where you ever good at guessing games?"
Ginny didn't have time for this kind of nonsense. She needed to find out if her hunch was right about Hermione's love interest.
"Look, Sir Knight, I need to get in that Common Room, but I can't have my prescence noticed." Ginny began to explain.
"Ah, yes, I suppose that you are another fan girl?" The knight in the picture drawled.
"A fan what?" Ginny asked.
"Oh, don't act like you don't know. Of course you are another fan girl. I have plenty of girls come here and countless numbers have been turned away. I have had girls who want to sneak a peek at Mr. Malfoy, ones who want to do things to and with him, that I am not allowed to say, and some girls who want to inflict harm upon Ms. Granger, simply because she gets to share a dorm with Mr. Malfoy." The knight replied.
"Oh, no, no, no, you have it all wrong, I'm Ginny Weasley, and am a friend of Hermione Gra. . ." Ginny began, but was interrupted by the knight.
"Ah, . . . Yes, another Weasley. I should have guessed by the red hair and freckles. You were locked in the Chamber of Secrets your first year here, am I right?" The knight asked..
"Yes, I was, but Harry Potter saved me." Ginny said, hoping to end the conversation and get in the Common Room to observe Hermione and Draco.
"I personally like you and Mr. Potter together. Are you still together?" the knight questioned.
"No, we're not officially dating, but we will be getting together after the war is over." Ginny said hoping that the knight would be satisfied with this answer.
"Really? I am quite happy to hear that. I was completely disgusted when those rumors were circulating around the school about Ms. Granger being together with Mr. Potter. Actually, I think that Ms. Granger would do quite well paired with Mr. Malfoy. Don't you agree?" the knight asked Ginny.
"Yes, I do. Actually, that's why I am here." Ginny decided that being nice to the knight might actually get here inside the dorm. "If you would be kind enough to let me pass through, I would truly be grateful. I think that there is something developing between the two, and I would like to see if my theory is correct. So, will you let me pass through?" Ginny finished her explanation with the most innocent smile she had. Growing up with six older brothers, she had been taught how to get away with the most sneakiest of tricks.
The knight seemed to buy her explanation and let her pass.
"Wow, that knight needs to get a life! Well, then again, he does live in a portrait, so I guess there isn't much life for him." Ginny thought. While passing through the portrait hole, she hid under the invisibility cloak. She quickly hid behind a pillar and began to watch the visible occupants of the room.
Hermione was sitting on a red comfy couch that was across from a green couch that had Draco sitting on it. They were both doing their homework which just so happened to be five foot essay on Polyjuice potion. Ginny noticed the secret glances being passed between the two. Draco would quickly write something on his parchment, then sneak a glance at Hermione who was still writing. He would forget about his homework, and begin to stare at Hermione with a dreamy look on his face. Hermione would quickly look up to see if he was watching her, but he was too quick to be caught. It must have been his fast reflexes that helped him in Quidditch. He would try to find his place again, but then Hermione would begin to stare at Draco. The only problem was that she didn't have fast reflexes. She would get caught, blush and they would both return to their studies.
Ginny stood behind the pillar, but then remembered that she had an invisibility cloak on. She walked very softly to the couches, so as not to be heard. As soon as she stood still in her area, about seven feet away from the couches, Draco asked Hermione for help on a question. She rose off of her couch and sat beside Draco on the couch. She smoothed her skirt, before shyly turning towards Draco, "What do you need help on?"
He replied, "Well, I don't seem to understand this paragraph right here." He pointed to it in the book. He saw that Hermione couldn't see it too well, so decided to scoot closer to her. They were so close that their legs were touching. Both blushed, but Hermione quickly recovered by beginning to read the passage. "Oh, all this paragraph is saying is that you have to make sure to only receive hair from a human and make sure the hair is from only one person."
"Really? All of this old language is so hard to understand. Thanks for helping me." Draco thanked Hermione.
"Sure." She got ready to leave.
When Draco saw that she was going to leave, he quickly asked for help on another paragraph. Hermione scooted closer to read it. Draco saw this and was going to hand Hermione the book at the same time she began to reach for it. When their hands bumped, each of them blushed. Ginny saw this and began to move closer to witness what would happen next.
She stopped when she saw their eyes rise to meet each other's. She moved a little bit closer, completely forgetting about the stand that held the vase. As Hermione and Draco moved their heads closer to each other, they both closed their eyes. Their lips were about to touch when, CRASH!!!!
Both quickly turned their heads towards the source of the sound.
"Wha, . ., What was that?" Hermione asked.
"Somehow the vase fell over." Draco replied.
"But, how?" Hermione questioned.
"I don't know. Maybe it's like Dumbledore's bird and it will rebuild itself." Draco answered.
Ginny took this opportunity to do a quick spell, without words, on the vase and put it back together.
"See, it fixed itself." Draco said and turned back towards Hermione.
They both looked down and saw that their hands had somehow intertwined with each other. When they noticed this, they both quickly pulled away and stood up.
"Well, uh, I have to go to sleep. I had a long day." Hermione said, excusing herself.
"Uh, yeah, me too." Draco said.
They both quickly hurried to their own separate dorms and shut the doors. Their homework was easily forgotten.
End of Flashback . . .
"Of course they weren't able to have their first kiss then, by, ahem, some unforeseen circumstance, but I was able to determine that they both liked each other, and come up with my genius plan of organized confusion!"
Ginny finished thinking the day over before heading up to her room and going to sleep.
The next day Ginny was filled in on what had happened that night between Draco and herself in the dorm room.
The summer after Graduation, Draco and Hermione were wed. They stunned everyone by being the first interbred couple to be wed after the war ended.
Some people in the Wizarding World wondered if one of them was under the Imperious Curse or some type of spell, and it's true, they were. You see, when you find you're true love, you are immediately put under a spell that is unbreakable. You might be wondering what this spell is called? Well, that's an easy question. It's called love.
When Ron and Harry found out about their relationship, they went ballistic, just as expected. Hermione was sure to use those extra hexes on them. After time, they became accustomed to it, and were present at their wedding. Some people wondered why Hermione was especially glowing that day. Again, that's another easy question, with an easy answer. She was six weeks pregnant.
Please review, but no flames.
