Summary: Set during GoF
My Heartbreak, the real me-
Hermione Jean Granger's story
The summer after my fourth year, the year of my first love.
I noticed him the summer before my fourth year at the Quidditch World Cup with Harry and Ron and the rest of the Weasleys.
Who would have thought he was still just a school boy himself?
I hate you
I love you
I had you
I need you
Once Before you had me
Did you even need me?
I look back over that year.
Malfoy in ferret form, that was quite amusing to see. The TriWizard Tournament, the worst part of the year of my entire fourteen of them alive on this Earth.
Ronald being a pig-head at the Yule Ball and falling into someone's arms was the best of my life until that.
Diggory dying, Harry seeing Voldemort.
These counted to being the worst too.
You were my world
You had my heart
Was I your everything?
Did I have your heart?
I cry, I laugh
For everything we had
The first time I saw Viktor, I slowly started to fall in love.
Harry and Ron didn't notice the change.
How could they, when Ron had only just noticed I am a girl?
Viktor was sweet and gentle, but at the same time quite official and stern.
I bleed, I cry
For the heartbreak you caused
I wanted you
I needed you to care
Am I an outsider
Between you and your girlfriend?
I fell in love.
Someone took him away from me.
Parvati Patil. Or Padma.
I forget which one.
At the Yule Ball, after mine and Ron's spat, one of them cornered Viktor and kissed him.
He didn't fight her away.
He deepened their kiss.
I saw them, my world crumbled in that instant.
My heart was taken
Broken, smashed, shattered
Don't break me
Don't fix me
Shame on me
I fell in love.
I cried and ran away. I wasn't watching my surroundings and I ran straight into a strong muscular body, knocking us both to the ground.
I suppose I caught him unawares.
I looked up into the stormy grey eyes of Cedric Diggory.
Trust him to register what has happened before I did.
He held out a hand to pick me up from the ground.
I'm surprised I didn't scare him.
Wouldn't you be scared if a crying bushy mess with no sense of direction came hurtling towards you?
Shame on you
You made me care
Just my luck a guy got to me
By my once guarded heart which was whole at the time.
Did you really love me?
Or was it as fake as your new catch?
"Are you alright?" he asked in a soft, gentle voice, a kind of voice I'm not used to from anyone besides my parents and Harry.
"No…" I whispered, I couldn't muster up the courage to save my strong and stupid Gryffindor pride. I let my tears fall.
He helped me up off the ground and kept his arms around me.
I thought I knew you
I guess I thought wrong
I was independent
Till you came along
I forgot who I was
I became dependent on a guy.
"Do you want to talk about it?" Cedric asked.
I shook my head telling him no.
He nodded in understanding.
"Hermy-ninny, vat is going on?" the strong, rough voice of Viktor came from behind.
Something I swore to my friends
That I'd never do
I gave you my heart
My soul, my life
All I wanted was for you to love me
All I wanted was for you to care.
"Nothing, Viktor." I whispered.
"Then get away from him." he spat.
Blood boiled in the pit of my stomach, through my veins. I glared at him.
"Who the hell are you to tell me what I can and can't do, who I can and can't stand by?! It's fine when you go round snogging every girl you see or my friends, but not when I'm upset and someone is decent enough to comfort me, you get controlling?!" I said defensively.
He raised his right arm to swing at me, but Cedric stepped in front of me to take the blow.
Guess I wanted what I couldn't have
Guess I wanted what no one would do
I would die for you
Take all bullets for you
Where was your love?
Cedric pulled out his wand and shouted "STUPEFY!" at Viktor, who flew back and hit his heed on the brick wall which resulted in him being knocked out.
Cedric looked at me.
"What?" I asked.
"Has he done that to you before?" he asked.
"But, but he was controlling once…" I told him, and started off toward the direction of the Gryffindor Tower. "Thank you. For protecting and comforting me." I smiled.
He smiled back. That crooked smile made my heart melt.
Fairytales are untrue
I know that now
Stupid of me
To wish for a Prince Charming
Should've known it wouldn't work
But someone decided to do it all for you.
"Do you want me to walk you to the Tower?" he asked.
"Very gallant of you, Mr Diggory. It's up to you, though." I grinned.
He walked to me, linked his arm with mine and led me to the Gryffindor Tower.
He hugged me and stepped back so I could mutter the password and walk through the Fat Lady's portrait.
What I didn't expect was for me to fall in love with this charming, gallant prince. And to lose him to death because Voldemort had killed him.
I have no idea why I'm now sitting by the lake, my nose buried in a book…
I loved him.
