Chapter 4: Missing
"Hermione, what happened?" Harry asked her, he was standing there in an old t-shirt and jeans. Hermione loved him, she knew he would be mad at her if she told him what had happened. "Harry, I- you're going to hate me for this. I swear I thought it was you the whole time. I didn't know it was Draco until I was leaving, Harry I'm so-"
"You slept with him! I can't belive you! Damn Hermione, what the hell was going on inside your head?"
There was one small tear running down Harry's cheek. "Harry, I thought it was you, I swear Harry, I thought it was you. We just did it, and I started to leave and it was him. I was so scared Harry, I didn't know what to do, I didn't know if I should tell you or not. Harry I'm so sorry." Hermione started crying. "Sorry isn't enough." Harry charged past her, "and stop crying!" He slammed the door shut behind him, she heard his footsteps stomp down the corridors.
Hermione leaned against the door and slid to the floor. She sat there and cried until someone tried to open the door. She stood up and moved out of the way. It was Ron, he looked tired and angry. "Harry told me what happened. Im trying to sleep, everybody was trying to sleep, and he comes flying in the dormitories and slams the door and is mumbling something the whole time, then he starts opening and closing his trunk, by then everyone was awake. We asked him what was wrong and he just started tearing up these pieces of parchment, they looked like notes from someone, love notes, I saw hearts on them. I grabbed him and pulled him into the common room. He told me everything, how you two had been secretly dating and you met in the Astronomy tower every other night. Then he told me about, he told me about Draco. Hermione how could you?"
Hermione stood there like a small child who had lost her parents, she was looking around nervously, holding back tears. Ron felt sorry for her in a way. "Hermione, please tell me you didn't know it was him." Ron put his hand on Hermione's shoulder. "I didn't know it was him, it was dark, and I thought only Harry and I knew where this room was." Ron kissed her on the cheek and walked with her back to Gryffindor Tower.
The next morning Harry stormed out of the boys dormitory and into the great hall for breakfast. Ron waited in the common room for Hermione, she never came down. Ginny came downstairs, "Ginny, where is Hermione? Is she up there?"
"No, she probably went to breakfast." Ginny walked past Ron. "She couldnt have, I've been down here all night, I would have seen her." Ginny stopped and turned around. "Are you sure she's not up there?" Ginny looked worried, "Im pretty sure."
Ron ran past Ginny and through the portrait, he stopped right outside. "What the hell do I do know? I have to find her, yeah, I'll get Harry. He'll help me." Ron ran to the great hall and found Harry sitting by himself at the table. "Harry, Hermiones gone! We have to find her." Harry looked up at Ron, "You can go look for her, I'm not. She deserves to run away and get lost, I hope she never comes back. That whore." Ron looked at Harry in disgust, he grabbed the collar on his shirt. "Never call her that again. Do you hear me?" Harry looked at Ron, this just wasn't something Ron would do. Ron let go of Harry's collar and pushed him out of his chair. Harry was laying on the ground as Ron ran out of the great hall.
Ron ran to the forbbiden forest and stood in front of it. He didn't want to go in, he was scared to death of that place, and there might be spiders. He hated spiders, but he loved Hermione. He would do anything for her. He closed his eyes and stepped inside. He slowly opened his eyes and looked around, it wasn't so bad.
Neville helped Harry up and asked him what happened. Draco had just stepped into the great hall and heard Ron say that Hermione was gone, he went flying out the door. Harry followed him and watched him run onto the grounds and into the forbidden forest.
Ron walked through the forest calling Hermione's name, until he heard someone else calling her name, he looked around and saw Draco. "What are you doing here?" Draco turned and saw Ron, "I came to find Hermione. I heard you say she was gone, I hope I find her." Ron walked up to Draco, "You stay away from her. You're not going anywhere near her after what you did to her." Ron pushed Draco out of the way and continued calling Hermione's name. Draco jumped on top of Ron and wrestled him to the ground. Ron got on top of Draco and punched him in the stomach, Draco curled up, then caught Ron off guard and punched him in the face. Ron was lying on the ground with his hand over his eye, Draco jumped up and started running through the forest screaming Hermione's name.
Harry thought for a second as he watched Draco enter the forbidden forest, he wondered why he had gone to look there. It was probably one of the only places Hermione could get away and hide. Then Harry remembered, the Marauders Map. He ran up to Gryffindor Tower and dug through his trunk, he found it and said the spell to make it work. He searched the map until he found a small dot labeled 'Hermione'. It was in the forbidden forest, not far behind Hagrids cabin. Harry ran outside and into the forest, he followed the map, Ron wasnt far away, Draco was even closer. Then he saw Draco's dot meet Hermiones, Hermiones dot moved a couple feet away, then back to Draco's dot, Ron's dot reached them not long afterwards. Then Harry noticed that he was standing in front of the three of them.
"Get away from her Draco!" Ron pushed Draco and hugged Hermione. "Why did you run away? I love-" Draco had pushed Ron out of the way, "Hermione, don't listen to him, lets go back to the castle." Draco took her hand, Harry threw Draco to the ground, "Hermione, I'm so sorry." Harry hugged Hermione then he was laying on the ground. "Ron!"
"Sorry Harry!" Ron helped Harry up, then started talking to Hermione again. "Look Hermione, I love you." Hermione smiled, Draco started running towards Ron, "Shut up Weasley, she's mine!" Harry punched Draco in the face and he fell to the ground. Ron and Harry took Hermione back to the castle, she kept turning around to see if Draco was coming. "We can't just leave him out there! Something will happen to him!" Ron was holding Hermione's hand, pulling her along. "We can leave him out there, and I hope something happens to that little-"
"Ron shut up!" Ron and Harry looked at Hermione. "You mean, you like him?" Ron said curiously. "Yes, I like him. I like all three of you, I love all three of you." Ron thought if loving three people at once was even possible. "You love him?" Harry said. "Yes, I love him, I love you too, and you Ron." Harry and Ron looked at each other. Draco had walked up behind him. "She loves us." Draco looked strangely at Ron when he said this. "Umm, ok." He turned to Hermione. "I'm sorry Hermione, I should have told you it was me." Hermione looked at Draco, then at Ron and Harry. She kissed Draco, then Ron, then Harry. "Im sorry, but I can't stay here any longer. I can't even look at the three of you." She turned and walked away, she had no idea where she was going.
Then it hit her, she loved Draco. She had seen Draco murder someone and she still loved him, she wasn't scared of him any more. She felt bad, someone was killed and she was the only one who could do something about it.
