Title: Let Me Love You

Author: Spike

Summary: Hermione Granger is tired of all the lonely nights. Cedric had been coming home less and less each week. When she's depressed, who will comfort her? Written for Tabby. Thank you so so much for the Birthday story. I love it!! It was also the official start of the 'Snape and every other character in the series omitting Draco' series.

Disclaimer: Nope I don't own it. Hey Tabby, do you think you would get it for me for what ever the next gift giving holiday is? Please? I'll love you forever and ever and ever and all the other evers in the world. Like, more evers than were in that old DA Note. Lol. That was like over three pages of just pure 'ever and ever'. LOl.

Hermione Granger sat her desk. Her name plate that read, 'HERMIONE GRANGER HEAD OF MUGGLE DEPARTMENT' gleamed brightly, having been just polished. She sighed and buried her face in her hands before the tears began to fall down her face.

"Hermione?" a small voice called from the door.

"Ginny?" she asked without lifting her head.

"Hey, are you okay?" Ginny asked going over to the weeping girl, and hugging her tightly.

"No. It's Cedric. I think he's cheating on me. He's only come home one night this week and when I asked his secretary if he'd been staying here, she said that Cedric had been leaving early for the past six weeks," Hermione said hysterically as she lifted her head and looked up towards her best friend.

"Oh, Mine, I'm so sorry. Wait, six weeks ago? Wasn't that when Harry came back from the states? I'm sure he's just hanging out with him," Ginny told her.

"And sleeping over each night?" Hermione asked.

"OH…Well they could be…. Have you asked him about it?"

"Who? Cedric or Harry?" Hermione asked.

"Cedric is your husband, even if you did decide to keep your last name," Ginny laughed as she looked at the name plate. Hermione had decided to keep her maiden name, Granger, because she said that it was unfair that a women had to take a man's name, yet the men never took the women's name.

"He wouldn't tell me," she sighed.

"If he wouldn't, Cedric would. You're his best friend Hermione. He can't lie to you. He's never been able to," Ginny told her.

"Really?"

"Of course."

"Now. Why don't we go out and grab a coffee and something to eat. It looks like you have let a morsel of food pass through your mouth for a couple of days. When was the last time you ate?" Ginny asked her in a tone that would put the nosiest mother to shame.

"What's today's date?" Hermione asked.

"January 29," she told her.

"Well then, five days ago. I think. It might have been a little longer than that."

"Hermione Jane Granger!! You're going to get yourself sick. In fact, now that I think it about you haven't gotten any sleep in a while either. I could tell from a mile away. You taking a vacation and it starts right now," Ginny said outraged.

"I can't. I've got too much work. Besides my workers would be outraged if I don't do my job and leave it all on them," Hermione protested.

"I'm outraged and if they have a problem with it, then they can deal with me. So are you going to put your jacket on and leave willingly or am I going to have to drag you out?" Ginny asked.

"Fine, I'll come. Just don't go mental in the process of dealing with my employees. I'd prefer if they're not dead," Hermione sighed grabbing her jacket, and following the red out the door.

Okay, I know that that was an uber short chapter, but I just wanted Tabby to know that it was here for her. Oh and Tabby, guess what, I actually plan on FINISHING this one. Shock, I know right. Well hopefully I WILL finish this one.
