A couple days have passed since they planned in the Head Dormitories. After that night, Draco was supposed to keep away from Hermione while Ginny talks her into talking to Draco again, so they acted like everything was normal and nothing happened.
Every now and then, Draco would have the urge to follow Hermione since he rarely sees her often. Blaise would always have to hold him down and distract him by telling him to stop stalking her while Draco retorts, "I'm not stalking her. I'm following her."
So the day has come for them to put their plan into motion. Ginny had told Hermione to go to the Library and pick up a book for her since she didn't know where she could find it, supposedly, and meet up with her in the Head's Common Room. Once they meet up, Ginny was to excuse herself because she left her homework in the Griffindor Common Room and Hermione was to wait there, but she insisted that she'd come with her and they just ended up arguing about who's staying and who's going.
Then Draco walked in the room from his shortened practice and noticed Ginny and Hermione arguing until they noticed him standing there. Their plan back fired. Ginny was supposed to leave a few minutes ago and Hermione was to be there by herself when Draco walks in. From there, Ginny would be just outside the Common Room with Blaise and they would lock the door.
Because of that, Hermione abruptly ran out of the room and Draco dashed after, not wanting to lose this chance to make things right.
"Hermione!" he called again, but she only sped up ignoring his calls. Thanks to all his Qudditch training, he was able to catch up to her. Without meaning to, he fell on her and he took his chance and straddled her with her arms locked over her head. She had no chance of escaping. Luckily for them, the hallway they were in was one of the few ones people used, so there was no chance that anyone would see them in their current position.
Despite the fact that Draco was holding her down from escaping, she still struggled under his grasp. Soon she grew tired and fell limp. All the more, she didn't look at Draco in the eyes and she turned her head away from him, so he wouldn't be able to see the tears that were running down her face.
She may have her head turned, facing another direction, but he was still able to see the tears. It only made his guilt grow.
With a shaky breath, she asked, "What do you want?"
"Mia," Draco whispered, making Hermione look at him. This was her lil nickname he had given her, and when he's serious about something, he would call her that. And to hear him call her that again made the butterflies in her stomach to flight.
He softened his grip on her. "I'm sorry. I never meant to hurt you." She saw the pained look in his eyes, something she had never seen before, something she knew he wouldn't let anyone see. If anyone saw him in such a state, who knows what will happen.
"Then why'd you do it, Draco? It hurted a lot. It hurted me a lot." she said in a soft voice.
"I was afraid..."
"Afraid of what?" She knew what he was afraid of, but she had to hear it from him.
He sighed. "I was afraid of what people would think of me, what my father would think of me, what your friends might do to you if things ever got out of hand." At this Draco released his hold on her arms and placed his hands on both sides of her head.
"Draco, I don't care what everyone thinks. I don't even care what my friends think. We could take them all. We could face the world."
He gave her a small smile, something that Hermione didn't realize that she missed seeing, something that she wanted to see more of. They stayed there in that position, staring into each others eyes and feeling the emotions each have been through during the past few days. It seemed like eternity since they were close together, but they were never that close to each other before.
Before they could even register what was happening, Draco reached down and captured her lips, taking hers in to own her. It was soft and sweet and they wanted to stay like that forever, but soon they lost their breaths and they pulled apart.
"I love you, Mia." Draco said, just barely above a whisper.
Hermione seemed to glow at this as she gave him a smile. "I love you, too, Draco."
Draco then swooped down and captured her lips again, only this time, their kiss was filled with passion. It was just like their own little piece of heaven. No matter what happens later on, they knew that they had each other. Together, they would be able to take on what ever obstacle that comes in their way.
"Harry, hurry up! Snape is catching up!"
"Ugh, this wouldn't have happened if you hadn't thrown the Quaffle at his head, Ron."
"And this wouldn't have happened if Goyle actually blocked it."
In their pace to get away from an angered Potions Master, they turned the next corner to see two people quite occupied with one on top of the other. They stared at the two surprised that they didn't hear them. As they got closer, they were able to make out Hermione being straddled by Draco.
"So they're finally together, huh?" Harry said amused.
Ron looked at him in horror. Harry noticed this and told him, "Ginny told me that they had a plan for the two to end up together." The look on Ron's face distorted into disgust then he looked at the two. "Ugh, I'm gonna blast his ass of the surface of the Earth!" he yelled, which surprisingly the two didn't seem to hear. Harry grabbed Ron before he could charge up to Draco. Then Harry was grabbed by someone from behind.
"One right after the other, huh, Potter."
Ron noticed the drawl of his Potions Professor and felt him grab his shoulder too and the two of them were dragged back to his classroom.
"This wouldn't have happened if you hadn't grabbed me." Ron mumbled.
"Well, this wouldn't have happened if you would have just ignored them and ran." Harry retorted.
"And this wouldn't have happened if you two hadn't thrown that Quaffle at my head!" Snape growled.
Ron and Harry crossed their arms and mumbled to each other, "This is your fault."
All's well that ends well. : And I'm super glad that I finished this. I felt guilty for not finishing this in a long time, so I took this chance and did. You can flame me for taking for ever. I don't care. Anywhos, be sure to review with either a flame or praise. :P
