Dirty Little Secret? I Think So.
A/N: So this is my next story...I hope this turns out good. I've been reading a lot of Dramione fics and so I decided to write them for a change. I think they are so cute once they get past the whole "I hate your guts" sorta thing. So on with the show(: Please review, they're much appreciated(: Disclaimer: I own nothing(:
Hermione slammed nine books onto the table, startling Harry and Ron in the process.
"Wow...what a nice way to wake up." Harry said yawning. "Ya know, you could have set them down much qui-" He stopped when he seen the venomous glare she was throwing in his direction.
"Okay, these three are for you, these three are for you, and these are for me." She said passing out the books. "Good luck on your essays boys." She said. She turned to walk out, but unfortunately they stopped her.
"Wait...what? You're not going to-" Ron started, but she interrupted.
"No, if you think I have time to write three essays, you better think again." And with that she walked out of the library and ran into someone.
"Oh I am so sorry." She said in a rush. She genuinely was sorry until she seen who it was.
"My, my, my. Goody goody Granger finally standing up for herself, eh?" Hermione rolled her eyes and begun walking down the empty hall.
"Can you not go bother someone else Malfoy?" He smirked and she noticed how he easily kept up in her pace.
"Oh, but Granger, I do enjoy making your life as miserable as possible." She stopped suddenly, causing him to almost run into her.
"Yeah, well have you ever thought how it makes me feel?" This caught him by surprise.
"Well, I'll tell you how it feels. You make me feel like crap. The things you say to me stick with me throughout the day until I am in bed crying myself to sleep." She didn't give him to respond she simply turned and stormed off before the tears that were threatening finally decided to spill. Once she was safe in her dorm she let them fall freely.
"Hermione, what is wrong?" She gasped in surprise. She thought all the girls were already asleep.
"Oh nothing, I'll be fine." She said. She waited until this seemed to satisfy the sleepy Luna. She climbed into her bed and was soon asleep once her breathing returned to normal.
"HERMIONE! WAKE UP!" She opened her sore eyes to see an overly excited Lavender and Paraviti.
"What time is it?" She asked in a yawn.
"Oh, just six." Hermione's eyes widened.
"Why in Merlin's name are you waking me up...on a Saturday...at six in the morning." She said.
"Oh, we have our dance lessons with Professor McGonagall today, you know for the first ever Fall dance?" Lavender explained. Hermione sighed and plopped back down on her bed and pulled the covers up to her chin.
"Yes, well, I already know how to dance. So I think I'm good." The two girls shrugged and left leaving Hermione to get another hour of sleep. She finally woke up at seven and got ready for breakfast. Once there, she noticed that Harry and Ron were grinning at her.
"We thought you would like to know that we finished our essays." She raised an eyebrow at Harry who seemed rather proud of him and Ron's accomplishment.
"You mean to tell me, that both of you finished a five page essay on the history of Hogwarts in one night?" She smirked when their proud looks turned into those of doom.
"History of Hogwarts? I thought it was Werewolves?" Harry and Hermione both looked at Ron as if he had gone insane. Hermione then tuned out the rest of the conversation. She glanced at the Slytherin table and noticed it was missing a certain blonde. She felt horrible for yelling at him, but then shook the thought when she remembered everything he had ever said to her. She said good-bye to her friends and headed for the library where she would spend the rest of the afternoon reading. She headed for her favorite armchair but noticed it was already occupied.
"Malfoy?" She gasped when he turned to face her. His eyes were red as though he had been crying, or hadn't gotten any sleep the night before.
"What's wrong?" She asked softly. She bent down in front of him. He put his head in his hands and she noticed that his shoulders were shaking slightly.
"Draco." She said more firmly this time. He looked up and indeed there were fresh tears rolling down his face.
"I-I cannot tell you." She looked at him in confusion.
"Oh believe me, I wish I could...but they have been watc- well, they would just know if I did." To his surprise she wrapped her arms around him and hugged him. He sighed contently and leaned into the warmth of the hug. Neither said a word, she just held him while he cried silently. She figured whatever it was bothering him, it must be more then Pansy Parkinson breaking up with him. After awhile she reluctantly let go.
"Well, I guess I better get going." She said noticing it had been an hour and she needed to get back to her studies. "I'm sorry for yelling at you last night. You had just caught me at a bad moment, but I shouldn't have taken it out on you." He shook his head.
"Yeah, well I'm sorry for everything I have ever done to you. From the very first time I met you, I tripped you in the hall, to now. I kind of changed after the war...and almost having to kill Professor Dumbledore, I didn't want to and I'm glad Professor Snape didn't go through with it either." She genuinely grinned at Draco Malfoy, shocking both of them. She said good-bye to him and walked out of the library.
"What the heck just happened?" They both said in unison, not knowing the other was thinking the exact same thing.
A/N: So I hope you all enjoyed it, and don't worry you'll be finding out what's going on with Draco soon. Please review if you liked it(:
