Head Trouble

Hermione's POV

I spent my summer with Harry and Ron at the burrow before 7th year, and I was looking forward to going back to school. My owl Jane flew into my room a week before school started with a surprisingly heavy parcel. After opening it I nearly fainted, for I had gotten Head Girl.

"OMG OMG!!!!! I DID IT!!!! I GOT HEAD GIRL!!! I nearly screamed.

Haha poor Ron and Harry they thought someone was kidnapping me and ran into my room.

"HERMIONE WHAT HAPPENED!! YOU SCARED THE BLOODY SHIT OUT OF US" Ron and Harry said, out of breath.

"Haha sorry guys, but I'm so ecstatic right now. I'm HEAD GIRL!!" I screamed this time.

"Really? That's awesome! Who's head boy?" Harry asked.

Upon hearing this, I frowned, for I had hoped one of them was head boy.

"Um… actually I don't know, I was hoping it would be one of you guys." I stated, disappointed.

"Oh, well it's okay, we'll find out next week on the train won't we?" Ron asked.

"Yeah, I guess so." I said

"Lets celebrate!" Harry added

"Celebrate? Celebrate what?" I asked

"Silly Hermione, celebrate you getting head girl." Ron added quickly.

"Oh." I said, kind of disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it's really sweet that Ron and Harry want to celebrate me, but every time they do, it's the same thing – Firewhiskey and Truth and Dare.

And as predicted, I was right. Firewhiskey and Truth and Dare it was.

"Hermione truth or dare" Ron asked while chugging down a firewhiskey.

"Uh… Truth I guess." I said hesitantly.

"Who do you want to be head boy?" asked Harry, in the middle of drinking another firewhiskey.

"Well, I wanted it to be one of you two, but I'm okay with whoever it is as long as it isn't someone I don't like."

"Haha yeah like Malfoy." Ron added.

I laughed "Yeah like Malfoy."

Boy did that week past by too quickly for my liking.

"HERMIONE WAKE UP WE'RE GOING TO MISS THE TRAIN!!!!!!" Harry yelled through the door.

"Go away" I mumbled half asleep. "5 more minutes"

"HERMIONE JEAN GRANGER GET UP RIGHT NOW OR YOU'LL LOSE YOUR POSITION AS HEAD GIRL. DUMBLEDORE IS WAITING FOR YOU AND LOSING HIS PATIENCE AS WE SPEAK" Harry roared.

At this, I immediately woke up. "WHAT?!?! How, where, what? Where's Dumbledore" I started asking a lot of questions while getting dressed and grooming myself." Oh my God Am I really going to lo–" I heard laughing outside and immediately knew Harry was messing with me.

"HARRY JAMES POTTER HOW DARE YOU MESS WITH ME THIS EARLY IN THE MORNING!!!" I yelled in his face after opening the door.

"Sorry Mione, but I had to wake you up one way or another. Now c'mon lets go, breakfast is ready." Harry said.

After eating, we went to King's Cross Station onto platform 9 ¾. "I'll see you guys later, I have to go to the Head Quarters." I said and started walking away. At the head quarters, who should I see but none other than the Prince of Slytherin himself, Draco Malfoy. This ought to be an interesting year.

"Sigh, Morning Malfoy. Congratulations on making head boy." I said with no emotion.

"Well well well. Should have known that little Gryffindor mudblood would be head girl." Malfoy sneered.

I stiffened at the word mudblood, not because he had said it, but because of the automatic demeaning nature of way Malfoy used it to torture me. But I'm not going to let that phase me, so I'm planning to speak to him as minimally as possible this year, despite us both being heads.

The train ride was a quiet one, as suspected. Upon entering Hogwarts, Dumbledore called us away.

"Congratulations to both of you. Now I expect good behavior on both your parts as you will be sharing a common room. The password is Unity. Enjoy." Dumbledore said.

Upon entering the common room, I was awestruck. I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life."

"You must be awestruck Granger, I mean you must not have seen anything this extravagant in your life. But this is pathetic. My room is bigger than this whole common room. But you, being a mudblood, must not have anything to extravagant."

There's that word again, mudblood. Every time, it gets to me. I ignore him and walk up to my room.
