Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter):
Hermione and Draco met in the library in the restricted section after their last class of the day. They had been assigned a project to find spells that could help heal people. Apparently there were a lot more than the ones Hermione had already known. They were also there to practice more wand-less magic. They had complete permission from Dumbledore. He seemed to be more and more worried about the upcoming war and he knew that Draco and Hermione were the best healers in the school. Hermione felt better about liking and wanting to be with Draco knowing that Dumbledore trusted him enough to teach special spells. He believed that he would defect over to the side of light. Hermione was starting to think so as well. She opened up a book and smiled. Research was going to be that much more fun than usual. It was really hard to find more detailed healing spells. It seemed those in the wizarding world wanted to keep the most powerful ones secret. But they didn't give up; they worked on the spell research until it was time for them to go to the great hall for dinner. Draco snaked his arm around her shoulder and laid a kiss lightly on her lips before she left. She blushed and was grateful that he had been holding on to her. It was a shock...but a nice one. She could feel his little smirk on her back as she walked out swaying her hips.
Dinner in the great hall was actually amazing. Hermione ate more than usual. She didn't speak much however. But it was okay Ron and Harry were talking way too much for her taste anyways. Speaking of Ron...it was getting really tiresome being around him. Over the summer they had tried to be together. It had not worked out. It was like she had been thinking on the train. Ron was into Lavender. When they were dating, Lavender would come over to the Burrow where Hermione was visiting Ron and his family for a few days...because she missed her boyfriend. It wasn't until about the second month in summer that she got suspicious of his indiscretion. It hurt just as much as she thought it would. Everyone said they were supposed to be together. So when she had caught them up in Ron's room it felt like her whole world was crashing in. She remembered that she wasn't even able to be angry with Ron. She had just left the burrow and had not returned for the rest of the summer. She had owled Ron and Harry telling them that she wasn't mad she was just hurt. That's when she had left to go and practice nothing but wand-less magic for the rest of the summer. That's also when she developed one of her really bad habits. She felt like she wasn't good enough for Ronald Weasley... Never mind her brain. She cut herself deeply. Her wrists were stereotypically sliced in lines down the whole thing. However that's not all she would cut. She cut deep gashes down the back and sides of her thighs. She took great measures to make sure that she never cut low enough for anyone to see them when she had her skirt on. Her upper arms and shoulders were also marred. She felt like she should look like she felt on the inside. She shook her head to distract her from such depressing thoughts. Looking up and seeing Ron and Lavender practically in each others laps didn't help. However she looked over and made eye contact with Draco. Instantly she remembered their kiss and the blooming relationship that was forming between them. The pain she felt from her mistake of a relationship with Ron seemed to disappear. Instantly her need to cut herself went away. She sighed...he was like instant medicine.
After dinner Hermione went back to the library. To her surprise Draco was already there. Silently she walked up behind him and put her arms around his neck and whispered thank you in his ear. He turned slightly and gave her a questioning look. She shook her head and said, " you're good for me...you make me like myself". That was the only clue she would give him about her habit. He would really find about it sometime later. He raised his eyebrows and nodded. Hermione only smiled back and nuzzled his neck. This was another thing she liked. She liked the fact that no words were needed. They both just understood that their relationship was changed forever towards each other. She would never call him a ferret in a vindictive way again and he would never again use mudblood in vehemence.
The Gryffindor common room was silent when Hermione returned. It wasn't that surprising considering how late it was. She had just come from the Slytherin rooms. She had been with Draco secretly locked away in his room. Before your minds get too carried away they didn't do anything of that sort...yet! They had worked more on their work for Dumbledore but then they laid down on the bed and just held each other. They talked of what they were to each other. Draco asked Hermione if she would like to be his. By his he meant his girlfriend, friend and maybe even lover. Hermione of course agreed. Then came the biggest question. Should they go public? At first they both agreed that they should not. But then Draco decided against that decision. If he was working for Dumbledore and planning on betraying Voldemort he had to start somewhere. What better way to show that he had changed that by announcing to the whole world that he was falling hard for one Ms. Hermione Granger.
The next day Hermione was unsure on how she was supposed to act around Draco. She knew they had decided not to keep it a secret but she had not seen him yet. She sat down to breakfast like usual when she felt a tapping on her shoulder. She looked up to see Draco standing there. "Hey Hermione may I sit with you" he asked with a sweet look on his face. She knew it took a hell of a lot of courage for him to do that. No doubt his fellow Slytherin thought he was playing some kind of prank on her and that's most likely what her boys would think. But she knew better. She nodded and scooted over just a bit so he could sit down. Harry and Ron arrived about six minutes later. They didn't notice him sitting there with her at first. Ron sat down on her right with Lavender practically attached to his side. Hermione couldn't help the snort that slipped out. Draco looked at her then at Ron and his girl. Then he understood. He himself laughed at her reaction. Harry sat down to Draco's left. It took him a few minutes before he noticed he was not beside Hermione. He looked up about to say good morning to her then noticed Draco. "What the bloody hell", They heard Ron on the other side of Hermione shout. Draco couldn't help but laugh...really hard. This made Ron turn even redder than he already had. Harry just looked at Hermione in confusion. Draco answered his unspoken question for her. "Potter...Weasley...Hermione and I are going out" he stated with a straight face. The boys faces went from confused to shocked. "HERMIONE HE'S A DEATH EATER", Ron shouted as he stood up and slammed his fists into the table. By then all of Gryffindor was watching as well as the rest of students and the staff. Hermione smiled slightly as she took Draco's hands in her own. "Ronald Weasley, I happen to like him not for what he's done or what he does but for who he is...and that is a nice person believe it or not who would never hurt me the way some people have" She hissed in his direction. Ron's eyes widened in shock and Harry's widened in understanding. Ginny who was across from her smiled and welcomed Draco as an honorary member of Gryffindor. The Slytherin students watched with anger in their eyes. But most of them still believed Draco was only over there as a joke or as some kind of plan to infiltrate the plans that they were surely making for the war. Later that's what Voldemort and Lucius would decide and that's what would keep both Draco and Hermione safe from them. Well at least until the war...
The rest of the day was insane. Hermione walked into potions the first class she had for the day holding Draco's hand. Harry followed close behind her. He was more than happy to let Draco into their group and accept the fact that he was changing. Professor Snape raised one of his eyebrows but Draco could see the small smile he had on his face. He knew he would make him proud by defecting if he so chose. The way it was looking that was the decision he was leaning towards. They sat down side by side and immediately got to work on the potion assignment that was on the board. The whole time Hermione was cutting up the ingredients for the potion she could here little whispers going around the room. She knew they were talking about her and Draco. When she saw Pansy and Millicent pointing and laughing at her Hermione got pissed. She was blinded by her anger and she waited until Snape left the room to go and get more ingredients before she acted. As soon as he left the room Hermione planted herself in Draco's lap and whispered in his ear. His eyes widened at how very Slytherin like her actions were. It amused him that she wanted to piss the two Slytherin girls off. Hermione smiled as she realized he would have no problem with her "taking advantage of the situation". So without further pause she turned and straddled him. She heard the gasps coming from around the room. Smirking she leaned forward and pressed her chest to his. Then she sighed and placed her lips on his. Then the whole world disappeared. Draco exploded with passion as he devoured her mouth. His hands were all over her body as he tried to "consume" her. After what seemed like years but could only have been minutes they came up for air. That had been their first passionate kiss that Hermione had initiated. The whole class was silent. Pansy and Millicent's mouths were hanging open in shock. Hermione giggled as she slowly got off of Draco's lap and gently kissed him one more time before she turned back to their potions to bottle it up and turn in when the professor got back. Draco sat in his seat with a dazed look in his eyes. He didn't dare move to help her or to stand up. If he did they would both be very embarrassed.
Later that evening Hermione was once again in Draco's room with him laying down in his bed. They were laughing over the days events. Especially the one from Potions class. It amused them greatly. It had even made Harry and Neville laugh. When they finally stopped laughing Hermione turned onto her side and kissed Draco. Instantly his hands were all over her. Hermione gasped as his hands roamed underneath her shirt. She had never been touched like that. She had never allowed Ron to get anywhere near that close to doing so. She had let him kiss her. But as she thought about it she realized she had never even let him kiss her with tongue. She had already let Draco do so. Her thought patterns were interrupted as Draco's hands came into contact with her bare skin. He his hands around her back and unhooked her bra. Hermione gasped in anticipation. Then his hands were upon her...touching her...searing her. He teased and played with her nipples. Hermione's breaths came short and hot. She never thought she would allow anyone to get this far with her. She didn't feel guilty about it she was ecstatic. Draco watched her face as he explored her body even more. He pushed her shirt up and slowly pulled it up and over her head. The next thing Hermione knew his mouth was laced around her nipple suckling gently. His other hand continued to massage her. Hermione practically screamed out his name as he continued his ministrations. Greedily he pushed himself up and over her. He slowly pulled her school uniform skirt off and found that under that skirt she had on nothing. Needless to say he was shocked. Hermione laughed at the look on his face. He had come face to face with her bare glistening secret. She never wore underwear and half the time she didn't wear a bra. This was just one of those moments where she had worn one. Draco let out a strangled gasp as her touched her gently. Hermione felt like her mind was exploding from pleasure. She had never even touched herself there. It was a completely new to her. Feeling bolder and bolder as she reacted to him Draco inched his fingers into her. He could tell she was virgin it was very hard to even do that. The thought made him growl possessively no one but him would ever see her or touch her like this. Hermione's small moans of pleasure turn into her gasping and screaming his name over and over. Before she knew it she was falling over the edge and white hot pleasure streaked through all of her senses. Draco smiled and kissed her as she made a mess all over him. This was heaven to him. Gently he wiped her off and placed lazy kisses all over her. He even kissed right in between her legs. However he made no movement to make the act seem sexual he just wanted her to know that he was infatuated with every single part of her body. He made no move to redress her but instead pulled her into his arms. Hermione looked up at him and smiled shyly. He returned it with one of his own. Then out of now where he felt her small smooth hands running under his shirt. The next thing he knew she was sitting up slightly and removing it from his body. She herself returned the actions he had performed on her earlier. She licked and nipped gently all over his chest leaving tiny little love marks. Draco gasped in surprise. Then he gasped again when he felt her tentatively inch her hands into his pants and down past the band of his boxers. Without any experience what so ever she figured out just how to make him go insane. He twisted and turned and groaned for more as she toyed with him. Smiling she removed his pants and boxers. To his surprise she was bent over him a few minutes after that. Her mouth completely covered him and she sucked gently and slowly at first. That's when she realized what he really wanted. She continued to do what she was doing but faster and with more urgency. Soon she had him exploding just as she had done earlier. She giggled and smiled as she licked his mess over of him and her face then she plopped down beside him with a contented. Sigh. Draco couldn't stop himself from grinning as he turned toward her and dragged her into his arms. Then they both fell asleep happy to have explored each other and perfectly willing to wait for more.
