i don't understand why she didn't kiss him. she likes him! please explain to me

Author's Response: Hahahaha okay! Well, you see, their relationship had quickly gone from old time enemies to very flirty friends. Hermione didn't have much time to get to know him, as just Draco. She was interested in the idea of him, more than actual him, and that's why she began to panic in this chapter. She wasn't ready, she realized now, to be in the sort of committed relationship Draco wanted with her, although, regrettably, she only realized it once he had gone through with the confession. She wasn't comfortable with herself enough yet to even accept that sort of love, so it was her subconscious stopping her from making a big mistake. She is slowly coming back into herself through this story, and I firmly believe that one needs to at least be relaxed in their own skin before they can accept deep feelings from another.

At the beginning she was working at the paper, which is obviously not where she belongs. She hasn't been in a relationship for a few years now, although her friends have changed a lot and made proper lives for themselves. If, in this chapter, Hermione had accepted Draco, then their relationship quickly would have been snuffed out.

They haven't learned enough about each other to know their actual feelings for one another's person, and so this way, with more time being just friends, they can grow closer, spend more time together, and if their romantic feelings last, then they can blossom from true friendship, and real feeling, and not a rushed summer romance.

I really hope I did not sound condescending in this! :o Thank you so much for reading and reviewing, Ashley! And thank you so much for asking me this question!

Also, I am so sorry for rambling. I was just trying to lay out my thought process when it came to this chapter. I hope to see you later in the story! Thank you again. (: (:
