Going Under

~*Now I will tell you what I've done for you
50,000 tears I cry
And bleeding for you
And you still won't hear me*~

Hermione lay almost lifeless on her dorm room floor. A very un-Hermione thing had happened just a few minutes ago. 'No one cares.' She had thought to herself. 'I'm the book worm. The homework friend. That's probable the only reason they even talk to me.' Hermione thought, in reflection of her friends. She thought they always knew what she was feeling. She thought they could see, but they couldn't. She didn't know why her mind was going this way, but really, she did.
It was because of a kiss. A small one, but still a kiss. A kiss to one of her best-friends, that was not given by her. A kiss to Ron, that made her heart ache. A kissed to Ron from Lavender. Hermione thought they were both her friends, that's when Hermione's head started spinning. 'And Ron, the hypocrite. He used to always yell at me from even talking to boys. I thought, maybe, he liked me. I hoped, but I wouldn't let him know that.'

~*....Going Under....
Don't want your hand this time
I'll save myself
Maybe I'll wake up for once (wake up for once)
Not tormented daily defeated by you
Just when I thought I'd reach the bottom*~

So Hermione did it, she poisoned herself. But, it wasn't real poison. It was a sleeping potion. Hermione knew she wouldn't be able to go through the real thing. So Hermione fell, and that's where she stayed. Until someone came in, until someone came in looking for her.

~*I dying again
I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowning in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through
going under*~

The person saw her laying on the floor, and ran over to her.
"Hermione! Hermione, Oh My God! Hermione Please Wake Up!" They person said as they shook her a little. Through the potion, Hermione could hear everything that was going on. But she couldn't move, she was in a dream like state.
"Please! God, Hermione, please wake up!" Hermione finally recognized the voice as Ron's. 'He cares.' She thought to Herself in a somewhat surprised matter. She was even more surprised when she felt a tear fall on her hand.
"Hermione, what did you do?" Ron asked in a strained voices. Hermione knew he had found the bottle the potion had been in.

~*Blurring and stirring the truth and the lies
(I don't know what's real and what's not)
Always confusing the thoughts is my head
So I can't trust myself anymore*~

The dorm room door opened again.
"Hey Ron, here you ar..." It was Harry, and he stopped talking when he saw Ron kneeling on the floor next to Hermione. Harry came running over.
"What happened?" He asked Ron. Ron shook his head.
"I don't know." He said in a choked voice. Harry looked down at Hermione.
"We need to get her to the hospital wing." Harry said. Then he went to pick Hermione up, but Ron got there first. Ron picked her up and headed toward the door. Harry opened it for him, and they almost ran right into Lavender and Parvati. Lavender put her hand to her mouth.
"What happened?" She asked in a whisper.
"I don't know." Ron said through gritted teeth as he pushed through the two girls.

~*I dying again
I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowning in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)
I've got to break through,
I'm, so go on and scream*~

"Madam Pomfrey!" Ron yelled as Harry and himself went through the hospital wing doors. Pomfrey came shuffling out of her office.
"What happened?" She asked. Harry held up the little bottle. Pomfrey grabbed it and ran back into her office. Ron put Hermione on one of the beds. Then he kneeled down next to her.
"You were so mad at me." Ron said bitterly. Harry, who was standing on the other side of bed, furrowed his brows.
"What do you mean?" He asked. Ron looked up at Harry.
"Me and Hermione got into a fight. She had been coming through the portrait. That's when Lavender kissed me. A few seconds after that, Hermione tripped over her own feet. I bent down to so if she was okay. When she looked at me, she looked so mad. Like she was going to hex me. After that, she got up and ran to the girls dorm." Ron said in that same bitterness. "Maybe if I had followed her, she wouldn't have poisoned herself. At least she wouldn't have had the chance. I don't know if she poisoned herself over me, or something else. But, if she dies, I don't know what I'll do!" Ron finished, smacking his fist on the table next to Hermione.

~*Scream at me, so far away
I won't be broken again
I've got to breathe
I can't keep going under*~

Hermione heard all this, and then she heard something that made her want to smile.
"And I didn't even want to kiss Lavender. It was that stupid muggle game they like to play." Ron said through gritted teeth. Hermione thought through all this, and what she wanted to do most right now, was wake up and throw her arms around Ron for caring. She knew Harry cared, but Harry also seemed to believe Hermione was going to be okay. A second later, Pomfrey came shuffling back to Hermione's bed. Pomfrey saw Ron, with he teary look.
"Dear, I'm afraid I can't tell weather it is a sleeping potion, or a poison. They are so similar. I'm sorry." Pomfrey said in almost a whisper.

~*I dying again
I'm going under (going under)
Drowning in you (drowning in you)
I'm falling forever (falling forever)*~

"If it is just a potion, how long will it take her to wake up?" Ron asked in an uneven voice. Pomfrey looked at him with pity.
"It's different in each case. I might be able to wake her up, but it could take hours." Pomfrey said. Ron looked over a Harry. He wasn't saying anything, he was just starring at the floor.
"Can we stay?" Ron asked, pointing to Harry and himself. Pomfrey shook her head.
"Only one of you." She said. Ron looked over at Harry with a pleading look.
"You can stay, Ron." He said almost reluctantly.
"Harry, I..." Ron started, but Harry cut him off.
"Just stay, Ron. I'll be back in the morning." Harry said, before he hurried off. Ron pulled up a chair next to Hermione. He knew he should feel bad for how Harry had left, but I'll he really cared about now was Hermione.

~*I've got to break through,
I'm, going under (going under)
Going under (drowning with you)
I'm going under*~

AN: I know, cliffhanger. But I doubt anyone will read this anyway. If you do, there will be a second chapter. So don't worry!
