AN: Okay, so this is a story mainly about Draco having to spend the summer at the Burrow, how mayhem ensues and how even at the middle of it all, a romance between him and Hermione develops. I hope you guys read and review, tell me what you think because that's just mainly the thing that makes me happy, knowing that people actually read what you've worked for and equally tell you how they feel about it. Hehe. Enjoy. It's just new, and I'll be updating real soon. :)
"I'm really excited, I can't wait!" Hermione said squeakily as the trio headed down for the Great Hall, it was the last day of their sixth year in Hogwarts, and apparently, all three would be in the Burrow the entire summer.
Ron smiled and gave a laugh, "Yeah, I'm excited too, sad the school year ended fast though..." He started.
"Too fast." Harry finished for him, smiling.
"Get out of the way, Dream Team! Are you guys too stupid to have a sense of direction?!" A familiar voice scoffed from behind them, and a couple of Slytherins laughed.
"What makes you think we'd care enough to answer you?" Harry said coldly and faced him. "It's a shame until now you have nothing else better to do than to bully, why, have you lost tricks up your filthy sleeve?" He added stiffly. Ron and Hermione were beside him, looking equally cold.
Draco was taken aback by his statement, but regained composure and said, "It's none of your beesewax, Potter. I'm just glad I have a summer away from all of you." He scoffed and walked airly towards the Great Hall, his gang of Slytherins following after.
"Pathetic, really, the way he's wasting time picking on others." Hermione said, shrilly.
"Too full of himself to see that people actually don't care." Ron said mad.
"Yeah, apparently he's too stupid to see that what he cares about doesn't matter to most of us." Harry added, and the three walked towards the Great Hall.
Dumbledore gave a few words before the whole school started eating, and the air was full of excitement and regret at the same time, most didn't want to leave Hogwarts but were also glad to take a break at the same time.
After everyone was finished, Dumbledore and the staff took turns talking and everybody was soon informed to say their goodbyes and start getting their trunk and aboard the Hogwarts Express.
As Ron, Harry and Hermione were on their way to the Gryffindor common room, Professor McGonagall called for them in Professor Dumbledore's office, and the three of them followed with quizzical faces.
"Vanilla FrogBats." Professor McGonagall said to the stone gargoyle, and immediately they were on the flight of steps towards the office of the headmaster.
When they arrived, they were surprised to see Draco and Lucius Malfoy sitting stiffly, along with Molly Weasley and Professor Dumbledore eating Vanilla Bat wings.
"Ah, welcome, welcome." And he conjured seats for the new arrivals, so much so that everyone was sitting and anticipating what the eating professor had to say.
"So, the school year has ended." He merely said, and Draco suddenly said "Indeed it has." And scoffed.
"Now, now Draco, be polite." Lucius Malfoy said in a cold voice, very shrill, very evil.
Professor Dumbledore had that twinkle in his eyes and continued, "Well then, I trust the three of you will be spending the whole summer at the Burrow?" He asked gently and his eyes darted from Hermione, Ron, Harry and eventually Mrs. Weasley.
They all nodded in unison, and Mrs. Weasley and Hermione even gave in a free smile.
"Well then, young Mr. Malfoy will just have to join you too." He said flatly, like it was just a fact he seemed to remember while eating his precious vanilla bat wings.
"WHAAAAT?!" Draco jumped up, revolted.
"NO WAAAAAAY!" Ron went beet red.
"OF COURSE NOT!" Hermione said shrilly, though still trying to be polite.
"HE CAN'T!!!!" Harry said coldly.
Professor Dumbledore raised his hands to quiet the young ones down, and Lucius Malfoy spoke.
"Son, your mother and I are going to a business trip, and you know how we have some of our own enemies, and the only possible protection for you would be under the very house of a Minister member." Lucius said expressionless.
"BUT FATHER!" Draco said shrilly. "Why them?! Why not in the house of Cornelius Fudge himself! Or or Barty Crouch! Someone! Anyone but the redheads and Potter!" He said in defense and his eyes met Hermione's. "Especially not the Mudblood." He said coldly, despise etched all over his voice.
Hermione went stiff and the two boys were ready to draw their wands out.
"Mr. Malfoy do watch your language." Professor McGonagall said sternly.
"No one else is available Draco, the Ministry members are all busy." Lucius said, coldly towards his only son. "And the Weasleys are the only ones who are available, and it would be quite appropriate" He shuddered. "since even if Mr. Weasley's at work, there would still be a lot of people in the house who'd be with you." He finished, disgusted at what he was saying.
He read his son's eyes and his expression towards his son was none other than I know what it's like and I hate it too, but bare with me.
"Now, I'm sure it's okay with the Weasley's, am I right Molly?" Dumbledore addressed the plump lady and smiled with twinkly eyes.
Molly immediately said, "Oh yes, oh yes Professor Dumbledore, it would be an honor to extend whatever help we can give." She said in a rush.
"MUM! YOU'VE GONE MAD!!!" Ron said in disbelief, refusing to close his mouth that was apparently hanging wide open.
The other two were about to argue when Professor Dumbledore said, "Now that this is all settled, I take it you should all go back to your rooms, say your goodbyes and head for the Hogwarts Express. Mr. Malfoy will be arriving at Burrow straightly after King's Cross." He finished in a tone the everyone knew meant his words were law and everything was agreed upon and final.
The three students were sent to go down and the grown ups were left behind; they all went down in silence, absorbing the information, too bewildered to form any kind of speech.
Once they were outside the hallway, Draco seemed to come back to himself and scoffed, "Way to go Dream Team! I have to spend all summer with you!!" He said exasperated.
"Hey!" Hermione said. "Don't you think we're the least bit proud, Ferret!" She retorded.
Just when the fight was about to heat up Professor McGonagall appeared and said, "By the way, the information that you have just heard is confidential, no one else should know that Mr. Malfoy is spending his summer at the Burrow, am I clear? We are finding a place to keep him, and no information shall leak, do you all understand?" She sounded pissed off and extremely tired, "Now, go off to whatever you kids are supposed to do."
The four went off with sour faces, each about to give a retort once they were out of earshot.
"You'll pay for this, Pothead, Weaselboy and Mudblood." He said shrilly.
"Shut up Malfoy, you just ruined our summer." They all said in unison.
And what a summer it was bound to be.Ü
