AN: Hello Everybody! I hope you enjoy this little story! Reviews are highly appreciated. =) Thank You.

Hermione's blood started to boil with anger as her evil potions master stood in front of her and criticized her in front of the whole class.

"Miss Granger, you insufferable-bushy haired-buck tooth-know-it-all, put your bloody hand down, and let me finish my lesson without you interrupting me every bloody second."

Professor Snape just about had it with Hermione. Ever since she, Potter and that Weasley boy came back they had been nothing but a pain in his arse.

Hermione shifted uncomfortably in her chair. "But Professor…"

"ENOUGH!" Snape yelled, slamming his hands down on her desk.

"You may be the other professor's little Gryffindor Princess but your nothing but a hemroid in my arse!"

Hermione had it. Tears burned her eyes but she refused to let them fall in front of him.

She stood up quickly in her chair, grabbing her stuff in her hand. She took one last look at her professor before she ran out of the dungeons.

She hurried along the corridors until she got to the front doors of Hogwarts. She bashed through them and out into the pouring rain.

She walked across the wet grass not bothering to put a shielding charm on her to keep her from getting wet. She came to her favorite reading spot under a weeping willow in front of the Black Lake. She slammed her books down in the mud not caring for once that she just ruined a book!

She heard the bells ring indicating that class was up. She was relieved that her last period was a free period. Harry and Ron had Transfiguration so she didn't have to worry about the two bothering her.

Tears fell from her eyes as she plopped down on the grass. She was soaking wet, but she didn't pay any attention to the cold water that was plastering her clothes to her body.

See leaned up against the trunk of the weeping willow and sighed.

"What did I do to make him hate me so much?" She thought to herself.

"I never cared about what the other teachers thought of me, well I did, but never as much as I cared about what he thought of me."

"An insufferable-bushy haired-buck tooth-know-it-all…" Hermione said out loud to herself. "…who is worse than a hemroid in his arse?" Hermione shook her head in shame.

So that's what he thought of her. After she saved his life from Nagini's bite, after she stayed by his bed side for days and nights reading to him, and making sure he had all the necessary things to make him feel like he was at home in his chambers.

Before she was about to scream out in frustration someone spoke.

"Miss Granger! 20 points from Gryffindor! Get inside this instant!" Snape growled at her.

He had waited for class to be dismissed before he went out looking for her, and this is where she was. Under a tree, sopping wet just sitting there staring off into space.

Hermione didn't turn around to look at him. She just stayed rooted to her spot. Closing her eyes as the water poured down her face.

"Miss Granger! I don't have all day! Get inside NOW before you loose more points for your precious house!"

Hermione stood up and looked at him. "No." She simply said.

Snape was taken aback by her straightforwardness.

"Excuse Me?" He said in a deathly tone.

"What are you deaf? I Said No!" Hermione spat at him.

Snape was in complete shock. Hermione Granger? Telling him no? How dare she!

"MISS…" But before he could even get her last name out of his mouth Hermione went off on him.

"DO YOU LIKE BEING A COMPLETE BASTERED TO ME JUST BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE IT? ALL I HAVE EVER TRIED TO DO WAS MAKE YOU PROUD! AND AFTER EVERYTHING I DID FOR YOU! YOU TREAT ME AS IF ALL I AM IS A FILTY MUDBLOOD!"

"DON'T YOU DARE SAY…" Snape shouted, but was cut off again.

"MUDBLOOD? WHY? THAT'S ALL I AM TO YOU BESIDES AND UGLY FUCKING KNOW IT ALL THAT IS NOTHING BUT A PAIN IN YOUR BLOODY FUCKING ASS!"

Snape was at a loss for words. Never in a million years would he have believed Hermione Granger would stand there in front of him cussing and screaming, and yet be so beautiful.

"Miss Granger!" Snape began…

Hermione let out a sob. "Why can't you just cut me some slack once and let me be without your harsh words and sarcasm. You have already done enough damage to my heart, do you hate me that much to keep doing it?

She turned away from him and sat back down on the grass.

Severus looked at her. She was right. She had done so much for him, and he didn't even give her one thank you.

Guilt crashed down upon him. He really hurt her. He was a complete jerk, and what was it all for? Maybe it was because he refused to believe that he had fallen in love with her during his stay in the hospital wing. Ever since then he had tried to muster up all the hate he had so she would never see through him and become aware of his feelings.

He felt horrible for what he had said to her. If only she knew she was the complete opposite of everything he said. He thought she was amazing. She was beautiful, extremely intelligent, brave, all the things that a man wanted in a woman. However, Severus would never admit that to her. He believed she deserved better than him.

She still was looking away from him, sopping wet. Severus was dry from the shielding charm he had placed over himself before he went outside. He saw her shiver, but he knew she was to stubborn to admit it was cold outside, let alone come inside!

He took of his dry warm cloak and walked up behind her and placed it around her shoulders.

He whispered in her ear. "You have ten minutes to get inside before I tell Professor McGonagall, and send her and Poppy out to get you."

And with that he walked away back to the castle.

Hermione sat there wide eyed and in complete shock. Did he really just give her his cloak after everything that just happened?

She pulled it around her tighter, loving the smell and the warmth of it.

"If only you knew how much I loved you Severus." She whispered.

TBC?????? You decided =) and let me know!
