Hermione,

I'm sure you're wondering why I'm writing to you. And quite honestly, I don't understand why I'm writing to you either. But after seeing you so recently, I just know there is something I must say. My mind won't let me rest until I get this off my chest.

I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry for standing by and allowing my sister to do what she did to you. I should have stepped in and stopped her, but I didn't. I suppose I was afraid. Afraid of what would happen to me or Draco if I were to stop her. there are so many things I didn't do because I wanted to protect my family. I know it's not an excuse, but I just needed you to know.

I'm sorry Hermione. I don't deserve your forgiveness, but I just needed you to know.

Sincerely, Narcissa Black.


Narcissa,

First off, I'd like to offer my condolences on Lucius' recent passing. To lose him so suddenly must have been awful.

And secondly, I accept your apology. I know we've all done things that we aren't proud of. We do what we think is best, regardless of the consequences. I can't hold you at fault for what has happened.

The experience has made me a stronger person, something I am grateful for.

And as for speaking on your behalf at your trial, it was nothing, really. I know you saved Harry's life, and for that I am grateful. You don't deserve time in Azkaban, and neither does Draco.

Sincerely, Hermione Granger


Hermione,

Thank you for your condolences on Lucius' passing. To be quite honest, our marriage was not one of love. So yes, I miss him, but it is not completely tragic. I now have the chance to go after what I want.

And I completely admire your strength Hermione. You are such a strong witch, one that continues to prove the wizarding world wrong. I would just like to say, good for you. We need more strong witches in the world like you.

Sincerely, Narcissa.


Narcissa,

You are much too kind. I appreciate your words. Thank you.

Hermione.


Dear Hermione,

I know it has been three months since I've written, but after seeing that awful article written about you and Weasley's break up, I had to offer my condolences.

I was just wondering if you would like to attend the Opera with me tomorrow evening? If not, I completely understand. I have enclosed a ticket for you, just in case. I hope to see you there.

- Narcissa


Narcissa,

Thank you so much for the ticket. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Love, Hermione.


Hermione,

I am just writing to tell you that I had a wonderful time last night. It was wonderful to see you laughing and smiling. That is a good look for you.

Love, Narcissa.


Narcissa,

You are far too kind. I really appreciate all you've done for me.

Love, Hermione.


Hermione,

What I'm about to say could very much ruin our friendship, but I have to tell you. I just can't keep it a secret anymore.

But I've fallen in love with you.

I know it's a bit strange, but I've known I have loved you for quite some time now. I thought I would be content with your friendship, but I am not. Being around you is intoxicating, Miss Granger, and it sets my senses ablaze.

Feeling the way I do about you is something very special. I have never felt this way before, and I know that a love like this comes just once in a lifetime.

So I will not apologizing for stepping out of line, but I just needed you to know.

I believe I've laid all the cards on the table Hermione, it's your move.

Love, Narcissa.


Narcissa,

I am sorry it has taken so long for me to write back. I was in shock from your confession. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized I felt the same way. I'd like to get together this week, to discuss this… us… whatever this is.

Love, Hermione.


Hermione,

Does tomorrow night work?

Love, Narcissa.


Narcissa,

That's perfect. See you then.

Love, Hermione.


Hermione,

Last night was wonderful, and I'd like to make it a more permanent thing.

With love, Narcissa.


Narcissa,

I'd like that very much.

Love, Hermione.
