Chapter 4: A Letter From A Friend
It's been two weeks since Hermione moved in with her biological family and she's never been happier. She's gotten to know her family and she's spent more time with Draco. Hermione smiled as she looked up from her book. She had realized the night after their first date that she was in love with him. She giggled and looked back down at her book. Hermione had barely started reading again when she heard a gentle knock on her bedroom door.
"Come in" Hermione stated softly and she looked up to see her door open. She smiled when she saw her brother standing there with an envelope in his hands.
"I've got a letter here for you and for some reason it was sent the muggle way...The paper looks really expensive though" Blaise said and Hermione smiled as she marked her spot before shutting her book. She rose from her seat and walked over to her brother. She grabbed the envelope and opened it unaware of the fact that Draco had just walked up. Hermione pulled the letter out of the envelope and began reading it silently.
I'm sorry that it's been so long since I've written you...Things have been hectic around here and have just settled down...I know that you're out of school for the summer so I was wondering if you'd like to come spend the summer with your cousin and me...It's her birthday soon and I want to surprise her...She hasn't seen you since the last time you came up to visit...Please respond as soon as possible so that I can get you room ready again...Love you my little firefly
Your dearest friend
Hermione smiled and folded the letter back up. She then walked out of her room and hurried down the hall with her brother following her. She walked downstairs and soon entered the parlor where her parents were sitting on the couch reading.
"Mum, dad I know that I really haven't been here all that long but I was wondering if I could spend the summer with my muggle cousin and her boyfriends family" Hermione said and Juliana smiled as she looked up from her book. She could tell that her daughter was excited.
"Who's your muggle cousin" Juliana questioned and Hermione smiled as she leaned over the back of the couch across from her parents.
"Her name is Bella Swan" Hermione replied and Pierre chuckled as he looked up at his daughter.
"I was wondering if the two of you had met...I'm glad you did" Pierre stated and Hermione became confused as she looked over at her father.
"What do you mean" Hermione asked and Pierre smiled as he sat his book down beside him.
"Bella is your cousin on your mothers side of the family...She's the only person in our family besides her father that didn't inherit the magic gene" Pierre replied and Hermione smiled as she stood back up.
"So is it alright if I spend the summer with her...I haven't seen her since the summer after my third year of Hogwarts" Hermione said and Pierre chuckled as he picked his book back up.
"Of course dear...Have a good time and be sure to write us while you're there" Pierre stated and Hermione squealed as she darted around the couch. She gave her parents a hug and then hurried back up to her room. Once inside she grabbed her duffel bag and packed some of her things with a wave of her wand. Hermione had just finished getting her things together when she felt a pair of strong gentle arms go around her waist. She turned around and smiled as she saw Draco standing behind her. She shut her door with a flick of her wrist and locked it before putting a silencing charm on her room.
"I'm going to miss you" Draco said as he looked into her eyes. Hermione smiled and coiled her arms around his neck.
"You know you could always come with me" Hermione replied and Draco smiled as he tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.
"I'd like that...I'll owl my parents and ask them...When do you have to be there" Draco questioned and Hermione smiled as she looked into his eyes. She loved having his body so close to hers.
"Well I'm going to send my friend a letter telling him to expect me in fifteen minutes and then I'm going to appariate...He already knows I'm a witch" Hermione replied and Draco smiled as he caressed her cheek with his fingertips.
"In that case I'll visit my parents for a few minutes and ask them...I'll meet you there soon" Draco said and Hermione smiled as she closed her eyes. She loved the tingling sensation she got when he caressed her skin.
"I'll be waiting" Hermione replied as she opened her eyes to look at him. Draco smiled and captured her lips in a tender passionate kiss before pulling away.
"I'm counting on it" Draco responded and he disappariated without another word. Hermione giggled and walked over to her desk. She pulled out a piece of parchment and scribbled her response on it. She then waved her wand and it disappeared in a puff of purple smoke. Hermione grabbed her duffle bag and disappariated after waiting for fifteen minutes. Two seconds later she landed in a small meadow nestled in the middle of a forest. Hermione suddenly heard a twig snap and turned around to see Edward leaning against a tree. She grinned and took off running towards him. The minute she reached him he picked her up and spun her around.
"I've missed you...How have you been" Edward asked and Hermione giggled as she readjusted her dufflebag.
"I've been fine...I found out that I was adopted and I've spent the past two weeks spending time with my biological family...Speaking of which remind me to have a talk with Bella because I know she knew about my biological family" Hermione replied and Edward chuckled as he grabbed her dufflebag.
"I'll do that...Come on the cars not far" Edward stated and Hermione nodded as she followed him through the woods. Twenty minutes later they arrived in front of a silver Volvo.
"How has everyone else been" Hermione asked as they got into the car. She buckled her seatbelt and watched as Edward cranked the engine.
"They've been great...They all miss you" Edward replied and Hermione smiled as she tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.
"I've missed them too...It will be good to see them again" Hermione stated as they pulled onto the highway. The minute they hit the pavement Edward pressed the pedal to the floor and within ten minutes they were pulling in front of a huge cabin like house nestled in the among the trees.
"So what's knew with you other than you finding out about your family" Edward asked as they got out of the car.
"I have a boyfriend now and he'll be here soon" Hermione replied and Edward smirked as he leaned against the hood of the car.
"Am I going to like him" Edward asked and Hermione giggled as she grabbed her dufflebag out of the car.
"Yes you'll like him" Hermione replied and Edward chuckled as they walked up the steps to the house. He opened the door and they entered the house. The minute he shut the door Hermione was bombarded with hugs.
"We've missed you so much" Esme stated and Hermione smiled as she returned all of the hugs.
"I've missed you too...I'm sorry I haven't visited much...Things have been a little crazy for the past three years" Hermione replied and Carlisle chuckled as he crossed his arms.
"Well go ahead and get settled in...We'll catch up once your done" Carlisle said and Hermione nodded as she walked up the stairs. When she entered her room she saw that her room had been changed a little. She also noticed that it now held a king sized canopy bed. She sighed happily and began unpacking her things unaware of the fact that Edward was watching from the tree across from her window. Hermione had just finished unpacking when she heard a soft pop come from behind her. She turned around and smiled when she saw Draco standing there.
"Your parents are letting you stay" Hermione asked and Draco smiled as he pulled her into his arms. Hermione was unaware of the fact that Edward was listening quietly from his spot on the tree.
"Yes they are...I told them that it would give me a chance to spend time with you away from your brother" Draco replied and Hermione smiled as she coiled her arms around his neck.
"I'm glad you were able to come although I do have to warn you my friend Edward is a little protective...He's basically been my big brother ever since I met him" Hermione stated and Draco smiled as he dropped his bags to the floor. He then wrapped his arms around her as he looked into her eyes.
"So how does he know that you're a witch" Draco asked and Hermione sighed as she looked into his eyes.
"I can't exactly tell you that without his permission...It's a secret him and his family share" Hermione replied and Draco smiled as he lifted her into his arms. He carried her over to the bed and laid her down.
"Well then I won't pressure you about it...Right now I just want to kiss you" Draco stated and he captured her lips in a long slow passionate kiss. Hermione moaned softly and brought her leg up his side. He placed his hand on her thigh and massaged her tongue with his own. When the kiss finally ended they were breathless. He then laid down beside her and held her in his arms.
"Draco what's going to happen if Ron and Harry find out" Hermione questioned and Draco sighed as he tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.
"Honey don't worry about that right now...Let's just enjoy the rest of our summer and deal with that when the time comes" Draco replied and Hermione sighed as she sat up.
"Draco I'm scared...I keep having this feeling that Ron's going to show up...What if he does" Hermione asked and Draco sat up pulling her hands into his own. He could tell that she was afraid.
"Hermione I won't let him hurt you again...It will be a cold day in hell before I let that bastard come near you" Draco replied and Hermione smiled as she looked into his eyes.
"Come on I want you to meet the others" Hermione stated and she got off the bed. Draco chuckled and grabbed her hand as he got off the bed. They walked over to the door and Hermione opened it. They stepped out into the hall and walked downstairs. They soon entered the living room to find the entire Cullen family sitting around.
"Who's the looker" Emmett questioned and Hermione giggled as she put her arm around Draco's waist.
"This is my boyfriend Draco...We go to school together" Hermione replied and Carlisle smiled as he rose from his seat.
"It's nice to meet you...It's nice to know that our little Hermione has finally found someone" Carlisle stated and Draco nodded as he shook hands with the man. It was then that he noticed that the mans hands were cold. A wave of shock washed over him and he looked down at his girlfriend. Hermione looked over at Carlisle and sighed.
"Um...He asked me and I told him I couldn't tell him without your permission" Hermione replied and Carlisle smiled as he pulled the young woman into a gentle hug.
"Mia that rule doesn't apply to you...You're already part of the supernatural world" Carlisle said and Hermione smiled as she looked up at her boyfriend. She could tell that he was confused.
"Draco...The reason that they know that I'm a witch is because they are vampires, but don't worry they only drink the blood of animals" Hermione replied and Draco sighed with relief as he held her close.
"It's nice to meet you all as well" Draco stated and Esme smiled as she rose from her seat.
"Well I'm going to go figure out what I'm going to cook for you guys....Bella will be here shortly...She'll be spending the week here" Esme replied as she exited the living room. Hermione smiled as she tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.
"If you guys don't mind I'm going to take a nap" Hermione said and Alice smiled as she looked up at the girl.
"Of course not get some rest" Alice replied and Hermione nodded as she walked back upstairs. She went back into her room and laid down. She curled up beneath the covers and fell asleep the minute she got comfortable. The minute she fell asleep she began having nightmares.
