A/N: How was all your holidays? Leave it in a review?:) Also, New Years is coming up! Who's excited? I am! Consider this chapter a late present of sorts. Ho-ho-ho! :3 This chapter is pure interaction between the characters. No, er, reading. :p I figured they might want to talk some things out seeing as a few strange things have happened. Also - I'll probably do chapters like this in between the 'reading' sessions. Let me know if this pleases youuuu:D
Draco grabbed Blaise's arm and dragged him into a corner. "What the bloody hell was that? You fancy Granger? Since when?"
"I could ask you the same thing," Zabini replied maturely.
"Zabini," he growled, quietly, as to no attract the attention of the others in the room.
Blaise smirked. "So it's finally happened, huh."
Draco shifted uncomfortably. "I..I'm not sure."
"Correction: You're not sure if you want to admit it yet," Zabini grinned.
"Shut up." Draco muttered.
"Well, that was...weird." Harry said, with an unnerving smile.
Hermione watched the retreating backs of Draco and Blaise, and looked to the corner where Mr. and Mrs. Malfoy stood speaking quietly. "Very strange." She agreed, attempting to put the puzzle pieces of the story together. The title...Book of Dramione...Dramione... "Guys, what do you think Dramione means?"
"Dunno," Ron muttered, glowering spitefully in Blaise's direction.
Harry smirked. He knew.
She gasped, quietly.
"It seems you've figured it out," Harry snickered.
Ron stopped glaring for a moment, "Figured what out?"
"MALFOY I'M GOING TO MURDER YOU!" Ron screamed, his fists firmly strangling Draco.
Draco turned an unflattering shade of blue. "Help...?"
"Think we should tell him?" Harry repeated.
Hermione shuddered. "No."
"Impossible," Lucius muttered. "He couldn't have...you know, I mean, Narcissa, dear. She's a mudblood..."
Narcissa's nose crinkled in distaste. "Ho-horrible word."
Lucius gaped at his wife. "What?"
"Do not use that word," she said more firmly. "This is Draco's decision. He must do this on his own."
Lucius grumbled something about insufferable wives, and recieved a swatting to the back of his head for that.
"MALFOY I'M GOING TO MURDER YOU!" Ron screamed, lunging towards the blond boy.
"I told you we shouldn't have told him," Hermione sighed, elbowing Harry.
Harry smiled, "But this is so much more entertaining."
"Harry!" Hermione chided, standing up and desperately trying to seperate Ron's fist from Draco's face.
"GET OFF MY SON, BLOODTRAITOR!" Lucius shouted towards a fuming Ron.
"Stupid git!" He growled as he was pulled back by a very frightened Hermione.
"Ron - Ron," she sighed, "Calm down."
This only caused him to become more angry. "I WILL NOT CALM DOWN! HE'S IN LOVE WITH YOU, 'MIONE!"
Everyone was so stunned they barely heard Zabini cackle like a deranged hyena.

I apologize it's a shorty. But this is merely characters interacting with each other. The next time when they begin reading again it'll be longer. Scout's honor!:)
