Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter. OKAY?
A/N: Hello reader! This is my very first Dramione fic, so sorry if the characters are a bit OOC. I just started reading stories of Draco/Hermione and I'm like "Jo? Why didn't put them together?", but because she's boss I can't do nothing about it. Hey, if you ship Lily/James, I also write stories about them, so you can check them out. I hope you would leave a review so I can know what you think and maybe improve myself! Read and Review!
Ferrets Can Read
Head Girl, Hermione Granger just had an amazing day. She had really high marks on all her homework and she had answered every question that the professors had raised. This was a perfect day for her. So to end her perfect day, she happily made her way to her most favourite place: the library.
Smiling as she entered the peaceful haven, she calmly made her way to her usual spot, plopped down and began to do her homework on Charms. A foot long essay about 'Fidelius Charms, its advantages and disadvantages'.
She was half-way through her essay, when a shadow casted over it. She looked and scowled.
Smirking down at her was no other than the Head Boy, Draco Malfoy whose smirked grew wider at her annoyed expression. "Well aren't you ecstatic to see me?" He mocked her. "I do believe I complete everybody's day."
"Well that's funny, because you just ruined mine." She snapped. "Go away, ferret."
You see, even if they were both made Heads and are supposed to be 'nice with each other' and be 'a good example of peace and unity to your fellow classmates', they still find each other annoying. Hermione will always be the know-it-all Gryffindork to Draco and Draco the arrogant, egotistical ferret to Hermione.
Draco shook his head in disappointment, "Now, now Granger. That isn't a nice thing to say. I was just going to say hello." He told her innocently. Hermione raised her eyebrows and then looked at him expectantly.
"Hello Granger." Draco said as if he had just seen her. Hermione rolled her eyes and went back to her essay.
Pausing to look at her work, which was still a few inches short, she had funny feeling that someone was watching her. She looked up cautiously then jumped in surprise.
"Malfoy!" She whispered furiously as she saw Draco standing on the same spot he stood a few minutes ago. He just stood there staring at her. She glared at him and said, "What are you doing?"
That seemed to snap him out of his daze and he began to panic. He grabbed a random book from the shelf behind him and opened it and pretended to read. Not even realizing that he was holding the book upside down, he looked at Hermione and said, "Granger! I didn't see you there, I was just reading and not doing anything else … I'm reading Granger, why are you interrupting me?" He then stormed off leaving Hermione staring after him completely flabbergasted.
"What is wrong with that idiot?" She shook her head in confusion and went back to her essay.
"Only a few more inches…" She muttered as she was almost done with her essay. She scribbled furiously, concentration etched on her face.
She jumped in surprise and looked up angrily at the boy who was standing in front of her.
"Yes?" She asked him whilst counting to ten.
He took the seat across her and began fiddling with his fingers. "I want to ask you something." He said as Hermione's annoyed expression changed to a curious one.
"What is it?" She asked. Draco paused and seemed to be thinking about what to say. He began to close his mouth and then immediately closing it.
"How-how-how was your classes?" He asked her smiling innocently. She narrowed her eyes suspiciously and replied, "It was fine. Is that all?"
"What day is it tomorrow?" He continued to ask trying to sound nonchalant. Hermione relaxed a bit and leaned back on her chair. "It's Saturday…" she said remembering, "Oh, and it's a Hogsmeade Trip." Her eyes sparkled as she said this; she and Ron have a date tomorrow.
Draco swallowed nervously. "Hogsmeade… Ah yes. Err, Granger. Would you, um, will you –"
Hermione watched him curiously, "Yes?"
"— Erm, will you … let me … borrow that book?" he said pointing at the book beside Hermione's parchment. Hermione raised her eyebrows and looked at him suspiciously.
"Why? Up to no good again, Malfoy?"
"Of course not." He scoffed, Hermione shrugged. "I want to read it , that's what you do with a book, right? Goodness Granger, you're the smartest witch of our age and you don't even know that? Tsk, Gryffindorks." He told her snatching the book. She threw him an angry glare and he sauntered away.
"Well, I didn't know ferrets could read!" She yelled after him, earning chuckles from students within vicinity. He glared back at her and she smiled at him smugly.
Exiting the library, he was grabbed by his best friend, Blaise Zabini. "So Drakey, chickened out on asking Granger to Hogsmeade?" He drawled, mocking Draco.
Draco scowled. "Of course not, Zabini. Granger just doesn't want to go out with handsome blokes like me. She prefers to hang out with Saint Potter and that idiot, Weaselbee. And I believe she has other plans tomorrow."
"Yeah, I know. I heard she's got a date with 'that idiot', Weaselbee." Blaise said nonchalantly, watching Draco's expression carefully.
"WHAT? You knew all along, and you didn't tell me?" He yelled indignantly as Blaise laughed at him. "Of course I knew, Drake. I just didn't tell you, because you might make a total fool of yourself." He smirked at him.
"Why you little –"
"Oh hello, Granger. Good luck on your date with the Weasel tomorrow." Blaise said as Hermione passed by them. With a last glare at Draco she walked away.
"Yes Granger, ferrets can read!" He called after her smirking. She glared back at him.
'And apparently, they get nervous when they ask someone out.'
"Come on, Blaise. Let's ruin Granger and Weaselbee's date tomorrow."
