(TFG: Hey! I 'm sorry it's been so long! I thought I already had another chapter written, but I didn't... so now I have to think of an idea... hmmm... well, here goes!)

Discoveries-32-I Didn't Drink Any

"Who's that walking with Ron?" Hermione asked, as she sat down beside Harry for dinner.


"And is she...? She's a Slytherin!"

"I wouldn't be talking, 'Mione... you're the one going out with Malfoy," Harry responded.

"Yeah, but RON... I just didn't think he'd be walking with a Slytherin, let alone looking at one. He hates Slytherins!"

"Well, so do I... but I guess some of them aren't as bad as they seem at first..." Hermione smiled at this. Just then Ron came over to their table.

"So how did you meet Daisy?" Hermione asked, smirking.

"Oh... it's a long story."

"Well, I've got time..."


Hermione and Draco were holding hands and smiling as they walked up to the Astronomy Tower. As soon as they opened the door to go outside, they heard noises coming from only feet away. They looked around and the moon was shining brightly so they could make out the shape of two figures, but they couldn't tell who they were because there faces were hidden. "Er... hello?" Hermione asked, unsure. The two people looked up and it was none other than Ron and Daisy.

Both their faces turned crimson, and they looked at the floor. Then they heard something else and looked up to see Harry and Ginny come out from behind a wall. "What are you doing here?" Ron asked.

"We were... just, er... stargazing?" Harry suggested, hopefully.

"Nice try," said Hermione. "We all know why all of us are up here, and it's NOT stargazing!" They all nodded. "Er... well, anyway... Draco and I'll just be over here..." she pointed to the opposite direction of the other couples.

They walked around the back of the tower, to an area where they couldn't be seen by the others. "That was... a little awkward," Draco said.

"Yeah," Hermione said, then leaned forward to kiss Draco. He kissed her back, and they soon ended up leaning against the wall with his arms around her waist, and her hands placed on his neck. After a long kiss, they stopped, and they just held each other and looked up at the stars.


Hermione woke up, and wondered at first where she was. She looked around, and when she noticed Draco beside her, she remembered last night... they must have both fallen asleep while stargazing. It was cold outside in the early morning... the sun hadn't come up yet. She gently shook Draco, but he didn't budge. So she kissed him, and when he started kissing her back she pulled away. "Why'd you stop?" he asked, not opening his eyes.

"Draco... it's freezing out here... can we go inside?" she asked.

"What?" He opened his eyes. "Where are we?"

"The astronomy tower."

"What? Oh, yeah..."

"Can you let go of me now, so I can go inside and warm up?"

"No..." he said, pulling her closer, and closing his eyes again.



"Come on... I'm getting cold!"

"Fine, fine, fine..." he said, letting go of her, and following her inside.


"Hey, Ginny," Hermione said, entering the Gryffindor common room.

"Hello," Ginny said, looking up.

"Oh, hey, Hermione," Harry and Ron said, together.

"Hi," she replied, and sat down beside the two boys. "What's new?"

"Nothing, really... why?" Ron asked.

"I dunno... it's just really boring. There's nothing to do today."

"We could go to Hogsmeade," Harry suggested. "The three of us haven't really spent much time together for a while..."

"What do you mean? We do all the time!" Ron defended.

"No, I mean... just the three of us."


"That sounds like a good idea," Hermione said. "I'll just go get my money and then I'll meet you in the entrance hall, okay?"


Hermione left and got her money, and then met them, as she said, in the entrance hall. "Ready?" she asked. The two nodded. "Okay, let's go."

Hogsmeade hadn't changed a bit since the last time they'd been there. It was exactly the same, except maybe more crowded than usual. After a while of walking around the streets and in shops, they finally decided to go inside the Three Broomsticks for some Butterbeer. They recognized some teachers in there, so naturally, Hermione waved to them, making Ron roll his eyes, and Harry just laugh.

"I'm glad you two have found someone," Hermione said, suddenly. "You know, Harry... Ginny's crush on you never stopped... and, er... I should really tell you something..."

"What?" he asked.

"Well... er... do you promise not to tell anyone? Especially Ginny, you can't tell her!" Hermione said.

"Yeah, I promise." Then she looked at Ron. "Yeah, yeah.... I promise!"

"Well, I sort of got Ginny that potion book for Christmas... for a reason. There's a certain potion in there that I thought she might like to try, and I helped her make it..."

"What kind of potion?"

"A..." she lowered her voice. "Love potion."


"I know, I know! I shouldn't have talked her into it, but-"

"No, I mean, what? I didn't hear you..."

"A love potion. And remember, Ron, that one day when I wouldn't let you drink any of your pumpkin juice?"


"It's because Harry was supposed to sit there, but instead you did before I could say anything, so I just dumped it out. The next day I put some in Harry's drink and made sure he sat there... so you see, it's really all just a big misunderstanding..."

"I didn't drink any pumpkin juice that day..." Harry said.

(TFG: I was trying to make it longer, but I wanted a cliffhanger... sorta... well, review please!)
