Author's Note - Hello everyone, I hope you like this 4th installment of my story. I am proud to say I am actually working on chapter 9 at the moment so you don't need to worry about me not updating for a while. Most of you have been asking me just to post them all at once. Sorry but it would take the fun out of it for me. See, if I were to post them all people would only review the last chapter not bothering about the other ones, obviously because they just want to get on with the story. I'd just rather get about a minimum of 10 reviews per chapter. The more I get the quicker I update usually. Anyway, I'm glad most of you found my last chapter amusing. And by the way Tina, aren't you in America or wherever you are going yet? Well I hope you are having fun and hope you have better weather lol. Ciao xxx.
Disclaimer - Yeah I own Harry Potter. Uh does anyone actually believe me? I don't think so, so what is the point in writing these stupid things. For the record I DO NOT own Harry Potter incase some gullible lawyer or whatever is reading.
September 2nd - First Day of Classes
Hermione woke up expecting to feel the comfort and warmth of her fabulous queen sized bed across the room from Ginny. Well let's just say she did not get what she expected. She was cold, highly uncomfortable and definitely not in her dorm room. She glanced around quickly and learnt that she was in a confined space. She looked at her body somewhat expecting her duvet cover. Alas! She only had a very short towel covering the places which girls need covered most. And that wasn't all. She was only wearing a watch other than the towel. She gasped. She glanced to her right as she heard a soft moan. Ginny. In the exact same position she was in. Sighing slightly she moved her left arm to shake Ginny lightly careful not to disturb either of the towels. As she shook her, Ginny let out another soft moan and was about to roll onto her side. The towel surely wouldn't be big enough.
"GINNY! Don't move!" Hermione shrieked highly alarmed. Ginny rooted to the spot and snapped her eyes open. She went through nearly the same procedure as Hermione gasping at all the same points.
"How do you suppose we get up?" Hermione asked nervously. Ginny glanced at her.
"How about we turn away and get up quickly to cover ourselves?" She suggested. Hermione nodded in agreement as she turned over and got to her feet. Quickly she wrapped the towel around herself tightly. To her dismay it did reveal alot of flesh. It only just covered where it needed to. Ginny had the same look upon her face before it quickly turned to anger.
"I told you Malfoy and Blaise were up to know good." She said gritting her teeth. Hermione looked at her watch.
"Well it is 7:50 AM at the moment. People won't be leaving for breakfast for about another ten minutes. We can make a quick escape now and grill Malfoy and Zabini's ass after we have changed." She suggested. Ginny looked flabbergasted.
"You're actually gonna walk through Hogwarts in nothing but a towel?" She asked amazed. Hermione nodded.
"Well what do you suppose we do? I am not missing first day of classes because of those two and I don't think I want to freeze to death in here. The gits didn't even leave us wands or clothes." Hermione said angrily.
"But I've not even done my hair!" Ginny wailed. Hermione gaped at her as though she had three heads.
"You are worried about your hair at a time like this?"
Ginny shrugged sheepishly. On Hermione's cue they both slipped from what they discovered was a broom closet and started to rush through the corridors praying that no one saw them. When they were one corridor away from their common room Ginny stopped dead in her tracks closely followed by Hermione. Not far ahead of them was a fairly large crowd heading their way. They looked mostly like Gryffindors and Slytherins.
"Crap." Ginny whispered. "We can't even turn back. The corridor is too long."
Hermione gulped. Harry and Ron might be in that crowd. The last thing she needed was them seeing her like this.
"It looks like we are going to have to face public humiliation." Hermione whispered. Ginny nodded, silently vowing to kick Malfoy and Blaise's sorry asses the second they set foot in the common room. Hermione and her both stepped forward as quickly as they could trying to ignore the many people in front of the crowd pointing and staring at the two girls in very revealing towels. As they quickened their pace, wolf whistles could be heard. Some people were laughing whilst others were shouting compliments to their bodies. Hermione and Ginny began to walk even faster and more red faced than ever when a few people started running forwards. She quickly recognised them to be Harry, Ron, Neville, Luna and Seamus.
"What the hell?" Ron whispered angrily. Hermione gave him a look of 'we will explain once we are out of this mess.' She and Ginny began to walk up to the potrait as they distantly heard Luna saying 'I should start that as a fashion. It would look great with green hair.' Once the crowd had passed and the wolf whistles could no longer be heard Hermione looked up at the painting.
"I like fluffy pink bunny rabbits." She hissed. The portrait swung open to reveal their common room and Blaise and Malfoy at the other end not looking in that direction. They didn't seem to have noticed that anyone had entered.
"YOU!!!" Hermione screeched causing both boys to whirl around and do a double take before collapsing to the ground in laughter. Odd, Hermione thought. She hadn't ever seen Malfoy laugh. Slimy git.
"You look um... different. Did you do something with your hair?" Malfoy asked in a fake polite tone trying to choke back his laughter. Ginny let out an ear splitting shriek causing both boys to cover their ears.
"We don't have our wands so transfigure us into clothes." Ginny said through gritted teeth. Blaise snorted whilst Malfoy smirked.
"And why should we?" Malfoy asked mischievously. Hermione's eyes turned into slits and flashed black again.
"NOW!!!" She roared in a voice did not sound like hers. Malfoy sighed and transfigured them into jeans and a tank top. Hermione and Ginny both looked at themselves in satisfaction before Ginny looked back up at both of the culprits.
"WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?" She screeched.
"It was his idea." Blaise said pointing to Malfoy.
"I DON'T CARE WHOSE FLIPPING IDEA IT WAS. I SWEAR IT, THIS ISN'T OVER YET. JUST YOU WAIT." Hermione screamed before storming back out of the common room with Ginny.
"I told you this was a bad idea." Blaise said as he dropped his head into his hands.
In The Great Hall
Whispers and rumors were flying around the hall like wildfire. 'Did you hear about those two girls? Apparently they were coming back from a nude model shoot for the Quibbler' or 'I heard from a reliable source that the girls were in fact patrolling for exhibitionists' or even 'I heard they were coming back with a 'top secret' meeting with Snape!'. No matter what all the rumors were ridiculous. As Ginny and Hermione entered the hall the whispers grew even louder and some were rude enough to point. Trying their best to ignore it they took up their usual seats beside Harry and Ron. Ron glared at the pair of them.
"So what's this about you two doing nude photo shoots eh?" He spat. Hermione and Ginny looked at each other flabbergasted. They hadn't yet heard any of the rumors.
"Ron you-" Ginny started but was cut off by Ron.
"What would mum say? Her only daughter. And that." He said jerking his head towards Hermione. "Slutting around naked in front of a photographer."
SMACK! The whole of the great hall had just witnessed goody two shoes Hermione Granger smack her best friend around the face.
"Don't you dare." She said in a deadly whisper. "Don't you dare accuse me wrongly of strutting around naked as if I enjoyed it. These rumors Ron. You believe them? No biggie there I suppose. You believed the rumors that Harry had entered the tri-wizard tournament himself because of what everyone else said. We didn't do what we did this morning because we wanted to. We did it because Draco Malfoy and Blaise Zabini transported us into a broom closet last night whilst we were asleep and left us with nothing but a towel. You should know the rest."
With that Hermione rose dramatically and left an extremely silent great hall and a very sore faced, guilty feeling Ron Weasley. Ginny stood up clutching her goblet of pumpkin juice. She threw it in Ron's face and left the hall just as dramatically as Hermione had. The second she had left the hall it started to buzz with excitement. Harry looked at Ron pitifully.
"I did tell you to listen to their side of the story first mate."
At the Teachers Table
"Albus, did you just see what I did?" Minerva McGonagall asked in a shocked tone. Albus grinned and nodded.
"I sure did Minerva. Rather entertaining don't you think?" He asked dipping a Pringle, a muggle crisp he was rather fond of, into a dip called Salsa.
"Entertaining? Something should be done to stop them immediately." Minerva scolded. Albus shook his head.
"Leave them be Minerva. It never does do well to interfere with the students. Pringle?"
Back With Hermione and Ginny
"Can you believe the nerve of him?" Hermione asked increduously. Ginny shook her head.
"He had no idea what he was talking about. No doubt he will apologise sooner or later."
Almost as if on cue a voice could be heard calling the girls name. To their surprise it was both Ron and Harry darting their way.
"Wait up!" Ron called out of breath. Both girls stood rooted to the spot until the two reached them panting heavily.
"I just wanted to apologise you know, for accusing you both wrongly. I just really care about you both and do NOT want you doing nude photoshoots." Ron said extremely quickly. Hermione and Ginny both nodded stiffly to show their forgiveness. Harry looked at them both before asking the question that had been annoying him since the Great Hall incident.
"So you said Malfoy and Zabini did this to you guys?" He asked curiously. Hermione nodded.
"Wait till I get the little..." Ron started. Hermione shook her head.
"Don't worry you guys. We have everything under control. We don't need bodygaurds. We are already thinking for a plan of revenge. We're just about to go to the common room now."
Harry and Ron both nodded and left the girls reluctantly. Both Hermione and Ginny grinned at each other as they walked to their common rooms arms linked.
A Short 10 Minutes Later
Thankfully neither Malfoy or Blaise were in the common room when Hermione and Ginny both returned. They both sat sat where Blaise and Malfoy had been sitting no longer than a half hour ago. Hermione was scribbling down useful incantations whilst Ginny was reading up on an appearance alternating book to try a completely unique prank. Hermione, after lots of scoring and rubbing out had finished writing the incantations and order for them all. She showed them to Ginny who smiled broadly.
"This is going to be great." Ginny stated after she had finished reading Hermione's parchment. "But when do we strike."
"Well I was thinking that they are probably expecting us to seek revenge so they will assume we will attack at night. Therefore we should attack during the day. Quietly of course so they won't know anything is wrong until they either see themselves or somebody tells them." Hermione said thoughtfully. Ginny nodded.
"I guess that would work but they would probably refuse to go to class. They don't care about schoolwork like we do."
"Good point. I suppose I can attempt to get them a detention. Hopefully during lunch time or something. You know when everyone is around."
Ginny nodded again. That would be a rather good idea. Besides it wasn't as if the boys would expect anything. It was definetly a good plan in her opinion.
