Seize the Unexpected

Summary: The son of a death eater. A muggle born friend of the Boy Who Lived. No one expects it. It just happened. The middle of seventh year.

Chapter One: Why Do I Care?

"Stalking me again, Granger?"

"I need to talk to you."

"About what?"

"We were doing so well at being potions partners. I thought we were becoming friends."

"We were."

"Than why are you acting like this?"



"I don't know."


Hermione walked back to Gryffindor tower, feeling rather confused. He didn't know. She really thought that they were becoming friends. Snape had stuck them together as partners for the whole year, and they had become good friends.

Or so Hermione thought.

"I don't know." echoed through her head. Draco Malfoy, brilliant student, top of his house, Head Boy, opposite her being Head Girl? And not to bad looking either..

Hermione stopped in mid-step. "I didn't think that." she told herself firmly.

Shaking her head, she continued towards the closer growing Fat Lady.


"I don't know." echoed through his head. "I really don't." he told himself firmly. They had been doing so well, becoming such good friends. No one in their houses much liked it, but both houses dismissed it as them working together, differences aside, to get a good grade.

"I don't see what the problem is." He thought. "I've never liked a girl like her before, though.." Draco stopped in mid step. He shook his head, hard. That could never happen. Not only was it totally frowned upon, his father would hate him. "Not that he already doesn't." he thought glumly.

For once in his life, Draco Malfoy didn't know what to do.
