A/N: Hi everyone! Cherri here! This is my first ever Harry Potter fanfic, so I hope you all like it!
Uh, there really isn't anything for me to say, so, uh, here's the story!
DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of the Harry Potter characters. I wish I did, but I don't.
"Hermione! Wake up!" said a voice, shaking me.
I slowly opened my eyes to see a certain orange-haired girl with bright eyes, wearing a Gyriffindor uniform staring down at me.
"No, go away Ginny. Let me sleep." I groaned, rolling over so I wasn't facing her.
"Hermione, it's 8. Breakfast closes soon!" she urged, shaking me, again.
I groaned. "Fine." I dragged myself out of bed, and To my desk, where I picked my wand at muttered a simple dress up spell.
My pajamas melted into the school uniform-a white button-up shirt, a black vest on top, a dark blue skirt that went down to my mid-thigh, a pair of white knee-high socks, a pair of Mary-Janes, and my Griffindor robe.
I searched for a hairbrush, which I ran through my bushy brown hair.
"Come on, Hermione! Everyone's waiting!" she said, impatiently.
I turned to look at her with a suspicious smile. "And by that you mean Harry's waiting for you?" I asked.
She blushed. "Well, yes, but come on, Hermione!" she said, he face getting redder.
I chuckled to myself. Ginny and Harry were such a cute couple.
"Here, Ginny, let's go. You know you have almost no patience what-so-ever?" I asked her.
"Only to people like you." she said, smiling.
We headed into cafeteria. When we got to our table, Harry, Ron, and Ron's girlfriend, Lavender, were waiting.
"Hello, everyone." I said, smiling as I took a seat across from Ron.
"Hello, Hermione. Hey Ginny." said Harry, smiling at Ginny.
"Mornin'" said Ron, quickly, as he continued to talk to Lavender.
My eyes narrowed at the two. A couple of months before, I had confessed to Ron, and told him I loved him, but he turned me down for Lavender. I haven't forgiven him since.
"Well, look at the time! Class begins in 10 minutes!" I exclaimed, looking at my watch for the first time.
"Right." said Harry. "I've got Transfiguration."
"Me and Hermione have Potions." piped Ginny.
"Lavender and I will be at Defense Against The Dark Arts." said Ron, standing up.
As soon as I was about to walk out of Potions class, a horrible voice rang out. "Look at this! Granger actually refrained from looking like some muggle who lives on the streets! What is the world coming to?" said Draco Malfoy, with a sneer.
Malfoy was a tall and annoying Slytherin, with white-ish blonde hair in a shaggy cut.
I was confused. His words hurt, but was he complimenting me?
"That's what I was wondering when they let you into Hogwarts. Then I realized you probably bought your way in, since that's the only good thing you have in you." I retorted.
He frowned. I had hit something hard. "Don't even, Granger, it's obvious that I am a better wizard than you are, and if even a mudblood like you got in, I would surely do the same." he said.
I was tired of this. "Whatever Malfoy, you aren't even worth my time." I said, in disgust. I started to walk away, but I heard a low chuckle. I turned around. "What are you laughing at?" I demanded.
"Why at the fact you have no patience or tolerance with anyone, mainly myself." he said. "That's probably why you aren't very popular." he said, as if he had learned something important.
My face reddened. "Don't talk like you're so big, Malfoy. I do have a lot of patience! Unlike you!" I glared at him.
"Uh, no. I definitely have the most tolerance with people." he said. "If we ever went out, I bet you'd end up breaking it up, because you can't handle it." he sneered.
My blood was boiling. "Well, I'll take that bet, because I am certain, you'd break us up!" I said.
"Uh no, I would not!" he said. "Fine, you and I go out, and we will see who has the least amount of patience, which is obviously you." he said.
"No! I would rather die than go out with a bastard like you!" I said.
"Of course. I should've known. You're too chicken." he said, taunting me.
"I am not! Fine. I will do it. What happens to whoever loses the bet?" I asked.
"Hmm... Let's say whoever breaks up with the other first has to be the winning person's slave for two months." he said.
My eyes widened. "Two months?" I asked, in surprise.
"Why of course!" he said, holding out his had to confirm the deal.
I groaned and shook his hand. The bet was sealed.
"Alright then! I promise to make your life a living hell until you lose!" he said, cheerfully. He swept by me and kissed my cheek. "See ya later, babe." he winked, as he walked out the door.
I stood there, dumbstruck. I put my hand on the spot he kissed.
"Oh, Merlin, What in the world have I gotten myself into?"
A couple hours later at the dinner table, I said six words that started all the fuss. "I'm going out with Draco Malfoy."
Harry, who was holding a bread roll, dropped it, along with his jaw.
Ginny stared at me, her face full of shock.
Ron, who had a mouth full of pumpkin juice, did a spit-take all over Lavender.
She screamed, and Ron quickly apologized and did a cleaning spell on her.
"YOU WHAT?" he shrieked.
"Um, Hermione, please tell us you're kidding." said Harry, quietly.
I shook my head. "Nope. He and I have a bet that if we went out, I'd break us up first, so I took it, and now, I have a boyfriend." I said, calmly.
"Then just break up with the git!" Ron screamed. His face was just about as red as his hair-the Weasley Family resemblance.
"If I lose, I have to be his slave for two months." I told him.
Ginny's eyes widened. "Merlin's Beard, Hermione! I can't believe you-" she stopped abruptly, and stared behind me.
I felt a arm come around my shoulder, and a body move in right next to me at our table. "Hello there, sweet." said a certain demon, smirking.
"What do you want, Malfoy?" I hissed.
"It's Draco, silly Hermione!" he said, purposely to annoy me.
It was working.
Everyone had turned to look. Their faces all showed utter shock. "What is Malfoy doing with Granger?" I heard someone whisper.
"Now, I thought I'd want to sit with my new girlfriend. Is that alright?" he asked, loudly.
"Shut up!" I hissed, but it was too late. Everyone in the dining hall had heard.
Loud whispers filled the dining hall. "Girlfriend?"
I couldn't believe him!
"Was that necessary?" I whispered/screamed at him.
"Why of course, babe. Everyone needs to know." he said, smiling evilly at me. "Although, I advise you to steer clear of my little fan club. They get a little stirred up when they hear I have a girlfriend." he winked, as he got up from our table.
He kissed my cheek again. "Bye. Don't miss me too much!" he said.
My blood was boiling, and I knew my face was just about on fire. He was completely winning!
Time to fight fire, with fire.
Time to fight fire, with fire.
