Disclaimer: I woke up to the biggest shock of my life this morning... I'm not J. K. Rowling and I don't own HP!

"What is the meaning of this?" snapped the stern voice that had been patrolling the halls, and had come across the two rule-breakers. "This is the second time this week I have found you two snogging in the corridors after curfew!"

The two guilty parties looked at the stern witch scolding them. They should have known better than to have chosen a spot so close to Gryffindor Tower. They both looked at the floor, their cheeks pink from having been caught.

The formidable witch before them had her hands on her hips, glaring at them as she always did when catching the Castle's inhabitants doing what they shouldn't. "What am I going to do with you two? You would think I'd be chasing after roaming first years, but no! I have to continually reprimand you two who should know better by now! I should give you detention with Filch!" she bit out; relishing in the way the two cringed. "Did neither of you learn anything from the last time I caught you? Or is it that you simply have no control over your hormones?"

The guilty couple shuffled their feet, looking properly reprimanded.

"Do you two promise not to let this happen again?"

The couple nodded, affirming, "Yes, we promise."

"Very well then; I'll not punish you, but you're to go immediately to Gryffindor Tower or to the Headmaster's office, understand?"

"Yes ma'am."

"Alright then; off with you, and no detours! Or next time I shan't be so easy one you."

"Thank you for your kindness, miss Granger, and we bid you goodnight."

Hermione nodded to the two love-birds. "Goodnight, Headmaster," she said, then turned to the witch at his side, "Professor McGonagall. Sleep well," she said with a wink, before turning on her heel and stalking off to finish her patrol, a smile curling her lips.


Hope you enjoyed :)
