Author's Notes: This is a collection of Draco/Hermione drabbles that I did for drabbles100 on LiveJournal. One or two will be posted per day until all one hundred are up. (I started writing them in October, and I've only just finished last night. Enjoy!
Title: How Very Rude
Prompt: 001 - Beginnings
Word Count: 202
The streets of London were nearly empty that morning. Puddles rested undisturbed, lining the gutters and curbs, and small birds hopped about them happily. Young Hermione Granger laughed as they splashed in and out of the products of last night's rain. She strained at her mother's hold on her hand for a moment, hoping to get a closer look, though soon found it to be too strong.
She glanced up and realized that there was someone coming down the sidewalk toward them, so briskly so that after a few moments, she discovered that it was not just someone, but two someones: a man and a boy, who looked to be about the same age as herself. They had the same pale blonde for hair, though the man's was much longer.
As the pair approached, Hermione stuck out her hand to the the boy. "Hello, I'm Hermione Granger, it's nice to meet you."
He looked at her as though she had suddenly sprouted wings. "Hullo," he muttered after a lengthy silence.
The man clasped the boy's shoulder, and nudged him forward. "Come, Draco," he commanded. Draco looked at his feet and shuffled off, falling in step beside the man.
Hermione wrinkled her nose. How very rude!
