Disclaimer: No… sadly enough I DON'T own Harry Potter because if I did, that would make me J.K. Rowling.

A/N: I haven't written in so long! I really want to thank my beta, IrinawithanI, for making this story awesome.I hope you like it.

"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"

Hermione Granger lifted her head and put down her quill when she heard the muggle actress from her favorite soap opera say that. She smiled because no one would have ever guessed that cheesy daytime soap operas were her guilty pleasure. Her smile became bitter, however, when she realized just how much the actress's statement mirrored her own life these past couple of months.

Hermione sighed as she settled further into the couch and continued writing in her diary. Months ago, if someone had told her that she would be upset over him, she would've told them to get their head examined.

She sighed while opening her diary to the most recent entry. After rereading what she had written, she decided to finish it.

I realize that people change… or at least that's what I was hoping for. I know I shouldn't have expected him to be any different, Diary, but he really had me fooled. I don't even know why I'm really upset.

I know it was all a game anyway but I wonder…who really played whom?
