A/N: Reviews were amazing as always guys. Keep them up! Enjoy!

I apologise for the long wait. Just to let you know the story is coming to a close. There may be some future outtakes, it really depends if I ever really feel in the mood to write them or get struck with some writers inspiration.


Hermione couldn't help the instinct shriek she released when she realised she was being taken somewhere to get…raped.

All of her instincts were telling her to be as loud as possible, to call her mate to her rescue and for him to come and save her. She wanted Draco. She wanted to be safe in his arms!

"What the fuck?" she was vaguely aware of panicked shouted from her captures. "What the fuck is going on? She is meant to be out of it! You hit her over the head only a few minutes ago!"

"I don't know! Shut her up already!"

But Hermione refused to be silenced. Her mate was coming. She could feel it.

Chapter 28

Something didn't feel right.

Since he had come into his unexpected heritage it hadn't taken long for his mother to decide that all of the professors within the school needed to be told, not only for his protection but for their own. He had already encountered how skittish even McGonagall was around him when he had been on the Hogwarts Express, so it wasn't as if he couldn't see where his mother was coming from.

Draco also hadn't fully expected the amount of interest his Godfather had suddenly taken in him. He had always been watchful over him, but since he had entered his seventh year Snape had been keeping an even closer eye on him.

It hadn't taken much for him to get the man to admit he was curious.

While he knew Veela's were incredibly rare, he hadn't expected Snape to be as curious as he had been. The professor had asked question after question, learning quickly which subjects he needed to bypass if he wanted to learn anything new.

Mainly, those subjects centred around Hermione. He wasn't willing to discuss that, even with his Godfather.

He had been handing in his most recent potions essay, knowing that since he had completed it sooner than it was due in he no longer had to concern himself with it for any longer than necessary. It meant more time could be spent with his eager little mate.

He grinned.

It wasn't until he felt a wave of pure fear and shock run through him that he froze mid-step on his way to his dorm room, his instincts flaring as his canines shot down before he could stop them.

His mate was in danger!

Never before had he felt so inhuman as he sniffed the air, concentrating firmly on the bond the both of them shared as he tried to track her down. He knew that since they had mated he could feel her clearer, but in his panic swarmed mind he was struggling.

Where the fuck was she?

She had told him she was heading back to their dorms, and yet he knew from being close to them that that was not the case. If she was in trouble then it was clear whoever had the balls and suicidal thoughts to try and hurt HIS mate had taken her, possibly hurting her.

The thought alone infuriated him!

How dare they hurt what belonged to him! Hermione was his life, his mate, his everything and to think that he could lose her…


Centring his thoughts he forced himself to calm down, concentrating on the bond they shared since he doubted he would be able to sniff her out quick enough. Her scent was all over the school much like the rest of the students, it would take too long to try and pick up on her freshest trail.

He didn't have the patience nor time so do as such.

"Where are you, Mia?" he muttered to himself, summoning his magic as he closed his eyes to try and grasp where his darling mate was.

Three minutes.

It took three long minutes for Draco's eyes to snap open. He snapped his head to the left before pushing himself as fast as possible in order to save his mate.

He would not feel safe and content until he had her in his arms.

His gums ached with the desire to rip apart those who had dared hurt his mate. It was unacceptable and he would make sure they would come to severely regret their decision to hurt his angel.

They were as good as dead.

Hermione continued to screech in panic as both Ron and Pansy continued to shout at each other. While some part of her told her to be quiet, she was smart enough to know that if she suddenly silenced herself it would only draw more attention from the idiotic duo.

It was still hard for her to accept the fact that Ron was capable enough to do this. She thought of him as a lying bastard for what he had done to her, but this…she would never had thought him capable of stooping so low.

It was revolting.

And for Ginny to be in on it as well! What had she done to make the family hate her so much as to wish physical harm and pain on her? Did the rest of their family think the same? She hoped not.

It wasn't until she felt the fury and panic through the bond she shared with Draco that she silenced her screams, knowing that he was coming to her rescue. She was still suspended in the air, her lack of wand meaning she was unable to cancel the spell. She was too panicked to use wandless magic.

As she had expected both Ron and Pansy snapped their head in her direction as soon as she quietened down, both of them stunned and confused as to her suddenly more calm nature.

They had no idea her rescue was on the way, and that he wasn't happy in the slightest.

Hermione knew that Draco had a temper, and while he was nothing but a gentle soul with her she doubted Ron and Pansy were about to see that side of him.

But did she want them to die?

Even after everything they had done and what they had tried to do she could honestly say that she didn't. She wasn't comfortable with Draco killing them, especially since it could be avoided and the Ministry could deal with them as the law stated. Draco may be in his rights to kill them, but that didn't mean it was the right thing to do.

She could only hope that Draco would be able to control himself.

But she knew that even if he was unable to she wouldn't hold it against him. How could she when he was unable to control his instincts, she could hardly hate him for something that was out of his control now could she?

Still, one could hope.

"Why has she stopped screaming?" Ron asked panicked.

"Like I bloody know, you idiot! Perhaps she's finally accepted her fate, that's good for you!"

Ron looked shifty, knowing that his ex-girlfriend did not go down without a fight. Something was very, very wrong.

"Where did you say Malfoy was?" he asked nervously.

Pansy shrugged. "Handing in some potions essay. He'll most likely get distracted and end up staying there for a while like he usually does. I think it's an adorable trait."

Hermione gritted her teeth. That was her man the bitch was talking about!

Ron meanwhile felt his eyes widen as his grip on his wand tightened until his knuckles turned white. "I really don't think this is a good idea, Pansy. He's barely letsher out of his sight, what makes you think he would rather spend time with Snape then his bitch?"

That brought her up short. "Fuck," Pansy muttered as she ran a hand through her hair. "I didn't consider that."

"So what the fuck are we going to do! I can't be caught doing this! My parents…my future job…I can't be arrested!"

Ron was panicking and if Hermione wasn't to worried for her well-being she would have rolled her eyes at the fact the both of them clearly hadn't thought this through clearly enough. What did they think would happen? They kidnap her, hurt her and then boast that Ron raped her as to get her away from Draco?

Did they not see the bad side of this at all?

For them to boast about it they would have to come clean, and once it got out there would be no going back. Hermione knew she was well known as one of those who had helped save the wizarding world.

It would not help Ron's case even if he had been one of the golden trio.

It would not work in his favour, but rather against him. He had been put on a pedestal by the wizarding world, so it coming out that he wasn't as good as they believed was going to piss off a lot of people.

"Draco!" she breathed a sigh of relief as she caught sight of him flashing around the corner.



Pansy and Ron were clearly in a panic, since it was impossible to hide the fact that not only was Draco incredibly pissed but he wasn't exactly human either. The way his fangs glistened, the splay of his wings and the way his eyes were literally black to look into meant he was indeed more animal than human at that moment.

Still, Hermione couldn't help but think of him as magnificent.

Feeling herself falling to the floor Hermione couldn't help but cry out his name in panic before everything went black.

Hermione felt as if her head was filled with cotton wool as she struggled to open her eyes as she came to. It was strange, while she knew technically she should feel some kind of pain from the fall, other than feeling slightly drowsy from waking up she didn't so much as ache.

"Mia? Love?"

Hearing Draco's concern caused her to shudder in pleasure and relief, her entire body curling around his as if she was trying to wrap herself around him so there wasn't even a millimetre of space between them.

"Draco?" she croaked out, burying her face in his neck.

She felt his fingers run through her hair carefully, just firm enough for her to feel it as his lips pressed against her temple while he held her close.

She felt content and safe.

"Are you ok, Mia? I did not catch you-" he choked out, "I am so sorry-"

"It wasn't your fault, Draco."

He wasn't having any of it. "It was. It is my duty to protect you and I failed."

"I'm safe, you didn't fail. You came when I needed you and I couldn't ask for anything else, Draco. But, what happened?"

She didn't have a clue. She could tell from the familiar almost herby scent around her that she was most likely in the hospital wing, and it didn't take a genius to work out that Draco had clearly enlarged the bed so he could curl up with her.

She was thankful she hadn't woken up alone and confused.

"When you passed out I went for Ron's throat. He pissed himself," Draco spoke with revolution. "But it appeared that Snape had noticed my sudden change in attitude and had called on Dumbledore to get to the scene before I could kill either one of them. Snape informed me that even though I hadn't realised I had been acting edgy when talking to him, my inner Veela clearly having sensed something was wrong altered my actions enough to alert him."


"That is not all," Draco continued. "Dumbledore was smart enough according to Snape to have researched my heritage and instincts. It appears that the only way for me to not kill them out of fury was for my Veela to be tricked into thinking they were already dead. That was Dumbledore's doing. While I knew they lived, my instincts calmed down enough that I could go to you now the threat had been taken care of."

"So their alive?" Hermione squeaked out.

Draco grunted, pulling her closer. "They are. They were ex-spelled on the spot of course and were taken by the Ministry for questioning. A few quick mind spells had them arresting Ginny was well. Potter is furious much like the rest of the school when it came to light what they had planned."

Hermione could sense his anger rising so she quickly pressed her lips against his neck, telling him that she was his and she was safe. It managed to calm him down enough that he didn't look as if he was about to run off to kill them anyway.

"Mr and Mrs Weasley along with their sons are furious when they heard, they informed Potter to tell you that they are in your side in this. Apparently they see you as a daughter."

That filled her with a sense of warmth. She had no idea how she would have felt if they found some way to blame her for all of this. She knew she would feel betrayed at the very least, but she was relieved she wouldn't have to find out.

"I love you, Draco."

He was silent for a few moments before she felt his lips gently lower to caress at her own. Her fingers moved to tangle in his hair and she smiled against his lips at the obvious signs of him treating her as if she was made of glass.

It showed he cared.

"As I love you, Mia. You are my everything, and I adore you a thousand times over."

She melted into his arms at his words, and she knew that even after everything they had been through she would get her happily ever after.

Her life was finally complete.

The End

I want to thank everyone who supported the story. You are all amazing.

Don't forget to review, I am open to any outtake ideas if you can think up any.
