A/N Okay so I realized I had MAJORLY failed at putting the little divider lines in between time gaps and POV changes, which is why I re uploaded all the chapters. So I apologize to my readers and to newcomers, ignore this little note. Sorry if you got three notifications because of this chapter upload, me and FF were having issues today haha!
Also I know Draco starts to get a little OC in this chapter, but thats part of the fun! I think =P
The first thing Draco realized when he woke up the next morning is that he was going to have to give Granger a dam apology. He knew he would be shit in the mud with McGonagall if he didn't. This is just going to kill my ego... he thought. Stretching, he pulled himself out of bed slowly and glanced out of his bedroom window. He was greeted by the first snowfall of the year, and caught himself thinking that it looked marvellous.
Without further hesitation, Draco got dressed and headed downstairs to wait for the Mudblood to get up so he could say he was bloody sorry, and then get on with his day. While he was waiting he started to organize their notes that had been thrown around last night, as they were still scattered all over the floor and table. As he finished up, he considered what a ridiculous and useless task he was doing, especially first thing in the morning. Sighing, he decided it was somehow Granger rubbing off on him, and sat back down on the couch to continue waiting. After 15 more minutes, he noticed Granger still wasn't down here, and he was starting to wonder what the bloody hell she was doing. Not wanting to completely miss breakfast, he decided he would deal with her later, and get some food into his gut now.
Sitting down between Pansy and Blaise, Draco couldn't help but look up at the Gryffindor table to see if Granger was there. Where is she? Wait, what the hell. What do I care? And instead quickly me Potter's gaze and gave him the coldest sneer he could muster. He just wanted to get this stupid apology over with.
Hermione added the final paragraph to her essay, and closed her book, placing it back into her bag. She knew it wasn't really a good thing to get into the habit of, doing her homework in the morning like this, – it was the sort of thing Harry and Ron would do – but she had been much too irritated with Malfoy to be bothered to do it all the night before. She also knew that Malfoy owed her an apology and a damned good one too, so he could possibly be looking for her, and she wasn't going to make it any easier. The library seemed like an obvious place for her to be, which is why she chose to go so early today, before the ferret was even finished dreaming.
She thought to herself that is was actually much better to be here in the morning, it was so peaceful! No one around except her, but as she turned the corner, apparently someone one else. Ron.
"Hello Ron!" She said brightly.
Ron almost fell out of his chair in surprise, and looked up at her quickly "Oh hey Hermione! You scared the shit out of me." He stood up and walked towards her. "What are you doing here so early?"
Hermione blushed. "Er, actually I didn't quite finish my essay last night, so I was just finishing it up."
"Hermione Granger didn't finish her homework on time... wow that must be a first." He grinned at her mischievously "What was stopping you from doing it last night?"
Dealing with a whiny little boy that's what stopped me. "Oh, I just started reading a new book I bought and I got really into it and lost track of time." Believable
"Ah, no adventure?" He rolled his eyes "Figures you would be doing something like that though. " He smiled at her. "Do you want to head down to breakfast?" He leaned towards her, took her hand and kissed her. He pulled away slightly and looked into her eyes, his voice a little huskier he said "Or.." and leaned in and kissed her again.
Hermione inhaled his scent and found herself wanting more of him. She pulled Ron closer to her and deepened the kiss and ran her hand through his flaming hair. He responded by picking her up and setting her down onto the table, so she could wrap her legs around his waist. She started to rock her hips into him as she slid her hands up the back of his shirt, feeling his cool skin against her palms. She tried to pull him even closer to her and the friction between their bodies was intense. She could feel Ron growing against her right thigh, and he groaned into her mouth. He placed his hand on her leg and slowly started to slide it up until it slipped under her skirt. She could feel him tugging at her panties, pushing them aside, so –
"Ohhhh..." Hermione moaned, as Ron slid a finger into her, very slowly. He then added another and started pumping faster, and Hermione rocked into him more, she didn't want him to stop.
"Oh! I'm sorry!"
They both pulled apart and Hermione turned to look at the face that was bright red, matching Ron's and her own. It belonged to Lavender Brown. Hermione slid off of the table and pulled Ron with her.
"Let's go, Ron"
As they were walking Hermione realized she was a little relieved in the interruption. She and Ron had talked about sex, but she wasn't sure if she was ready yet. She knew he was, and that he was jealous because Harry and Ginny had already done it, but he knew not to pressure her.
He sighed. "I guess the library isn't really the safest place to be fooling around, huh?" Ron looked down at her as he intertwined his fingers into hers.
She smiled at him. It felt like her and Ron had been distant lately, and she was glad for the closeness.
"You wouldn't have done it, would you." He said.
"If Lavender hadn't walked in on us, would you, uh, would we have – "
"Oh... Er." She didn't know what to say "Um no, I don't think so. I'm just... not ready."
Ron didn't say anything else as they walked into the great hall together.
Potions. He would see her in potions class. Then he could – wait, not in front of all the Slytherins. That would not go over well, especially with Pansy, and he didn't want to look like an idiot. I'll just have to wait until after class, and then corner her or something. All of this thinking was giving him a headache.
Potions class really seemed to be dragging on today, he was supposed to be making a vanishing potion, but he knew he was messing it up.
"Mr. Malfoy, you're supposed t o have stirred your potion three times, and it seems I've counted you do seventeen stirs already." Professor Slughorn was standing over Draco's cauldron giving him a dubious look.
"Sorry professor, I've just had other things on my mind" He subconsciously looked up at Granger, and before he could look away, Slughorn followed his gaze. Shit, shit. He didn't mean to look over her, I mean, why on earth would he want too? He looked up at Slughorn, who had obviously seen where he had been looking.
Slughorn raised his eyebrows at him and simply said, "That's very... interesting" and accompanied by a sigh of relief from Draco, he walked back over to the front of the classroom.
Hermione had noticed. Ugh Malfoy kept looking up at her. He must really not want to get in trouble about this. She thought. She might as well let him talk to her after class, because that was what he so obviously wanted to do. When everyone was packed up, Hermione waited behind a bit to see what he would do. Malfoy left the classroom and she assumed he was waiting for her outside of the dungeon. She wasn't disappointed.
Now really, if that's how he is going to go about this, I am not wasting my time. Hermione stated to walk away, which got her the reaction she wanted.
"Er, I mean, Granger. I want to talk to you." Malfoy said nervously.
Ha she was making him nervous! "What do you want, Malfoy. I haven't got all day."
"I er – just wanted to you know... say sorry." He whispered
"Sorry, didn't catch that last bit there, what was it?" Hermione was really enjoying herself; he really seemed to be struggling with the saying sorry thing.
But he was getting irritated now. "I said sorry! Don't make me say it again!"
She raised her eyebrows. "You're sorry are you?" Hermione wanted to make him grovel, but she knew he never would so she decided to let it go. "Well. Meet me tomorrow in the common room for your next lesson at 7:00 sharp. Don't be late, ferret."
A/N Please read and Review! Again, sorry for the mess up with the lines!
