AN: I don't own anything... J. K. Rowling does... please don't sue. :)

"Come on Hermione! You know it's true! Stop denying it!" Lavender said to her roommate as she brushed her hair.

"There's nothing to deny because it's not true!" Hermione huffed while she dried her hair with a towel.

They had just come back to their dorm room after "swimming" in the lake. Actually, Ron and Harry had pushed them in it when they weren't looking.

~*~If there's a prize for rotten judgment

I guess I've already won that

No man is worth the aggravation

That's ancient history--

Been there, done that!

Who'd'ya think you're kiddin'

He's the Earth and heaven to you

Try to keep it hidden

Honey, we can see right through you

Girl, ya can't conceal it

We know how ya feel and

Who're you're thinking of~*~

"Hermione, we know you like him! Why don't you just admit it? If you do, I won't tell him you are DESPERETLY in love with him!" Parvati said with a giggle as she sat on her bed putting gel in her hair.

Hermione's eyes flashed as she whipped her head around to face Parvati, her wet hair spraying an amused until then Ginny.

"Don't you DARE!" Hermione shrieked in response.

"Hey! Watch it!" Ginny said at the same time, wiping her now soaked face.

"Sorry, Ginny," Hermione said as she wrapped her towel around her hair.

"We saw how you were looking at him. Hermione Potter... hmm... has a nice ring to it, don't you think?" said Lavender as she put her hair in a twist.

"I totally agree," Ginny said, while ducking when Hermione threw a pillow in their direction.

"I do NOT like him!" Hermione said, scolding her friends as she so often did.

~*~No chance, no way

I won't say it, no, no

You swoon, you sigh

Why deny it, uh-oh!

It's too cliché

I won't say I'm in love

I thought my heart had learned its lesson

It feels so good when you start out

My head is screaming get a grip, girl

Unless you're dying to cry your heart out, oh~*~

"Why would I like him? I haven't liked anybody... not since Viktor," Hermione said, sadly remembering what had broken them up.


It was the end of the fifth year, just one week before classes ended and Hermione received a letter from Viktor Krum.


I've found someone else, she's older,

more mature. We have more in common.

I... I'm sorry, but we're through.

She found out who the "someone else" was that summer. It was none other than Rita Skeeter. She spent the whole summer crying and getting over him.

~*~*~*~*~*~END OF FLASH BACK~*~*~*~*~*~

"Oh, Hermione! Krum is scum! Hey, that rhymes!" Ginny said, chuckling at the last bit.

"Yeah, besides... you've moved on. To Harry," Parvati said with a smile.

"Hermione did the summoning charm and her pillow came back to her. She then chucked it at Parvati, and hit her in the stomach.

"Hey! Ow! That hurt!" Parvati said, trying to look like she was in pain.

"Serves you right," Hermione said with a smirk.

"Hermione, it's not good to keep things bottled up. So just tell us how you REALLY feel!" Ginny said. She then jumped off the bed and hid behind it, thinking Hermione was going to hit her with something.

"Ginny, Lavender, Parvati... why don't you believe me? I don't have feelings for him, I don't," Hermione said, trying to convince them, and herself.

~*~You keep on denying

Who you are and how you're feeling

Baby, we're not buying

Hon, we saw ya hit the ceiling

Face it like a grown up

When ya gonna own up

That ya got, got, got it bad

No chance, no way

I won't say it, no, no

Give up, give in

Check the grin, you're in love~*~

"Sure, whatever you say, Hermione..." Lavender said, nodding knowingly.

Parvati rolled her eyes.

Ginny lit a small blue fire and put it on the floor, near Hermione's foot.

"Liar, liar, pants on fire," Ginny giggled.

That just sent all four of them into hysterics. They didn't know what was so funny about it, but they just couldn't help but laugh.

The door opened just then and Harry and Ron were standing in the frame, both wearing weird expressions on their faces. It wasn't everyday they opened the door to a laughing contest, or at least, that is what it seemed to be.

"What is so funny?" Harry asked.

"Noth... nothing!" Hermione managed to gasp out before covering Parvati and Lavender's mouths with her hands, so they wouldn't say anything. Unfortunely for her, she only had two hands and three big mouthed friends.

"Hermione won't admit something that we all know is true!" Ginny said, between giggles.

"What?" Ron asked, intrigued.

"Nothing, she's just playing," Hermione said, hoping they bought it.

"But, Hermione, you're the one whose pants are on fire!" Lavender managed to say after she got away from Hermione's hand.

That sent the girls laughing like hyenas again, even Hermione.

Harry just shook his head and rolled his eyes at Ron. Ron rolled his eyes back.

~*~This scene won't play

I won't say I'm in love

You're doin' flips

Read our lips

You're in love

You're way off base

I won't say it

Get off my case

I won't say it~*~

Hermione then got control over herself and sat up on the floor, all four girls had been rolling on the floor laughing.

"Did you want something?" Hermione asked, trying to change the subject.

"We just wanted to know if you... all... were going to come to Hogsmeade tomorrow," Harry said, staring at Hermione. When he realized that he was staring, he quickly turned to face Ron.

Hermione saw him looking in her direction, and she blushed and then looked down into her lap.

"Maybe I DO like him. Is that possible?" She asked herself as she smiled.

~*~Girl, don't be proud

It's ok, you're in love


At least out loud

I won't say I'm in love~*~

DC: How was it? Did you like it, hate it, think it was okay? Please tell me! (That means review!) Thank you! :)
