Lucius Malfoy stood rubbing his cheek. "Draco said you had a strong right hook. At the time I doubted him. I see now he wasn't exaggerating." He said coolly.

Hermione screamed and struck out at him again. "You are an arrogant self righteous prick bastard rapist." She punctuated each word with a slap to his face, chest and arms.

Lucius raised his hands to chest level, blocking her blows until the last word of her rant. At the word 'rapist' he caught her hand, his voice turning icy.

"I am all those things, Ms. Granger, excuse me, Mrs. Snape. I fully admit to being an arrogant, self righteous prick bastard." He lowered his voice and leaned over, staring directly into her eyes. "But I am NOT a rapist."

Severus took a step forward; he could hear the warning tone in Lucius' voice. He watched as his wife raised her hand to strike him again, stepping forward, he grabbed her hand and wrapped his arm around her waist. "That is enough, Wife."

She fought against his grip.

"Is your hatred for me really that great?" Lucius took a step towards her; his grey eyes were like daggers. "Do you hate me so much that you would rather have your friend fucked to death by a Werewolf then be touched by me?"

Hermione screamed with rage and fury, trying to launch herself at the blonde wizard. Severus tightened his grip on her waist, lifting her from her feet. "Come Wife." He growled. "I believe it is time for you to retire. Goodnight Lucius." He called over his shoulder as he carried the squirming and kicking witch from the room.

When he reached their rooms, he dropped her unceremoniously on her feet. She whirled on him, her eyes blazing. "You." She screamed. "You were there. You…you…examined her." She shuddered at the word. "How could you? You let him rape her." She raised her hand to strike him.

Stepping forward he grabbed her hand, squeezing tightly. "You will not hit me." His voice was low and threatening. "Lucius still carries enough guilt about what he did that he allowed you to hit him. But make no mistake, I do not. Do. Not. Tempt. Me." He pushed her hand away.

In the other room Ginny wrapped her arms tightly around Luna and pulled her close.

"They are fighting because of me." She sobbed, laying her head on her friends shoulder.

"Shhhhh." Ginny crooned, trying to soothe her. "You know how Hermione is. Everything with her is right or wrong, black or white. She can't see the gray. Remember her and the house elves?"

Luna nodded her head and chuckled ruefully.

"Trying to free them when they never wanted it in the first place." Ginny shook her head. "Snape will set her right. I can't believe she hit Malfoy. Shhhhh. Listen." She hissed as voices rose in the next room.

"You were there." Hermione continued to rant. "You were there while he raped her and you never told me."

"It was not MY story to tell." Snape yelled. "The story belongs to Ms. Lovegood and to Lucius. It was her decision whether or not she wanted to share it with you. Until the other day I did not even know the whole story myself."

"But he raped her and you examined her afterwards." Hermione's voice dripped with disgust.

"And do you know what I found?" Snape roared. "A girl who was unbeaten, unharmed and very much alive."

"How can you say she wasn't harmed?" Hermione muttered stubbornly. "He took her virginity."

"Yes he did." Snape's voice lowered menacingly. "Tell me wife? Who took your virginity? Because I know it was gone when you came to my bed. Was it that git Ronald Weasley?"

Hermione flushed hotly and glared at him.

"No. I can tell by the look on your face it wasn't. So it must have been that Quidditch player, that Bulgarian. What was his name…?" Snape rolled his eyes in thought. "Krum. That's him." He leaned in close, his eyes dark with anger. "Tell me Hermione? When he pierced your maidenhead with his prick, did it hurt?"

"Of course it did." She murmured, tears welling up in her eyes.

"Did he make you come?" Snape had circled around her now, whispering low in her ear. "No?" He scoffed when she shook her head. "Not with his fingers, his tongue, his cock?"

"No." She screamed her voice sounding a little hysterical, tears streaming freely down her face.

"Well Lucius made sure Luna did. Not once but twice." Severus sat down heavily on the edge of the bed. "What part of this can't you or won't you understand?" He shook his head.

"But he forced himself on her." Hermione sobbed. "She was a virgin. She didn't get to chose who her first time was with."

"No Hermione, the Dark Lord forced both Lucius and Luna to make a very hard decision. And Luna chose to live."

Hermione closed her eyes and shook her head.

"Hermione." His voice came out harshly. "I have examined the bodies of virgins when Fenrir had finished with them. And do you want to know what I saw?"

She shook her head.

"One poor girl's perineum had been ripped from hole to hole. And this was after he had bitten all of her fingers off, just for fun. Another girl…" His voice broke, "…..another girl he shoved his cock so far down her throat that she died…"

"Stop." Hermione shrieked. "I don't want to hear anymore."

"I'm sorry. I don't mean to be so graphic. Come here." He held his arms out to her. After a moment she allowed him to pull her onto his lap and wrap his arms around her. "But you have to understand that Lucius Malfoy saved Luna from a horrible death." He kissed her tenderly on the side of her head and rocked her gently. After a while her tears subsided.

"Do you understand now?" He asked her gently.

She nodded her head slowly. Sitting up she wiped the tears from her face. "I'm still sad for her."

"Why's that?"

"Losing your virginity is a special moment in a girl's life. I'm sad that she didn't get to chose when and with whom it happened."

Severus chuckled darkly. "I daresay that given the circumstances, Ms. Lovegood had one of the best first sexual experiences a girl could possibly have."

"How can you say that?"

"Mmmmmm." He kissed her deeply. Lifting her off his lap, he placed her gently onto the bed. He stood and stripped off his shirt before lying next to her. "Do you think I'm a good lover?" He asked, kissing her again.

"What?" She asked crinkling her nose. "What does that have to do with anything?"

"It's a very simple question." He looked at her, his expression serious. "In your vast array of sexual experience, do you find me to be an adequate lover?"

"More then adequate. You're amazing."

"Mmmmmm." He grunted, trailing his fingers down to the edge of her nightgown and pushing it up gently. "And how do you suppose I got that way?"

"What?" She gasped, as his fingers made their way under her nightgown to lightly caress the underside of her breast. "I suppose I've never really thought about it."

"Hermione, you can't think that I had a line of eager Witches knocking down my door, wanting to make love to me for my good looks and charming personality." He moved his hand down over her stomach and eased his fingers into the waistband of her panties. "Any skill I possess as a lover I learned at the very capable tutelage of Lucius Malfoy."

Hermione moaned and arched her back as his fingers worked magic between her legs.

"Awkward and gangly as I was, Lucius took pity on me. He introduced me to witches who I supposed you could say were "willing". Instructed me on where and how to touch a woman."

Hermione moaned loudly as he nibbled on her neck, sending shivers down her spine.

"So I suppose what I'm saying is…" He pulled her nightgown over her head and lightly kissed her stomach. "Rather then feeling bad for Ms. Lovegood. Perhaps you should feel jealous. You only have the student, she is getting the master."

"Oh God Severus." Hermione cried out loudly.

"Seems like they've made up." Luna said, turning her head to Ginny.

"Sounds like it. Shhhhh. I want to hear this."

Snape's voice cried out "Fuck witch, you feel so good. We should fight more often."

Luna giggled and covered her mouth with her hand.

As the groans and moans became louder and more frequent, they heard Hermione cry out loudly "Oh Severus."

"Wait for it, wait for it…" Ginny whispered.

"Ahhhhhh Fuck." Severus roared, signaling his completion.

"Hmmm." Ginny shrugged. "She didn't lie. He is both a moaner and a yeller."
