“Hey Harry, listen to this,” Hermione Granger told her best friend, the two were seated at the kitchen table in Grimmauld Place eating breakfast. Hermione had the daily prophet propped up infront of her. Harry looked up to indicate he was listening.
“Why are they still talking about it? It’s been four years!” Hermione put the paper down with out finishing the article.
“Hermione, why are you getting yourself worked up about it?”
“It’s just that Voldemort is gone now and it has been a long time since it happened, and if they keep bringing up the story it’s gonna resurface so many bad memories.”
“Memories? You mean of Dumbledore?”
“Err yeh, look Harry I’ve got to get to work. I’ll see you tonight, bye.” Hermione was gone before Harry could question her further. Harry then picked up the newspaper Hermione had abandoned, to finish reading the article. He noticed there was also a photo underneath, it reminded him of the first photo he had seen of his late godfather, Sirius Black.
Harry finished his own breakfast and as Hermione had done, he headed off to the Ministry of Magic, Auror Headquarters.
“Good morning Hermione,” Luna Weasley greeted her friend as Hermione came through the floo network in their shared office at St. Mungo’s. “Hermione? Hello?” Luna repeated, waving her hand infront of Hermione’s face.
Hermione shook her head, and looked at Luna, “Oh hi, how are you? Got to get to work. Bye.”
“Wait a second Hermione,” Luna put out an arm to stop Hermione from walking out the door, “What’s wrong?” Hermione just looked guiltily at Luna. “Oh, you saw the paper didn’t you? Oh, Hermione.” Luna pulled her friend into a hug.
“I’ll be okay, I just need to keep busy.” Luna nodded and let Hermione go. Once Hermione was out of sight Luna went to her desk to write Ginny Weasley as quick note:
Luna sent the letter by owl and went to check her patients.
Hermione was distracted all day, she did manage to do everything right when it came to her patients but she just wanted to go home. When she arrived back at Grimmauld place she was surprised to find Ginny and Luna there, dressed in cocktail dresses, “What are you two doing here? And why are you dressed like that?”
“We are here to take you out. So go get ready, we will be waiting in the kitchen.”
Ginny told her, pushing her toward the stairs.
Fifteen minutes later Hermione entered the kitchen, ready to go wearing black pants and a dressy t-shirt. Ginny and Luna grabbed an arm each, then apparated, not wanting Hermione to know where they were going.
They arrived at the Leaky Cauldron in a matter of seconds. “The Leaky Cauldron? I come here all the time, how is this special?” she whispered to her friends.
“Just wait, be patient,” Luna told her, before dragging her out the door and into the streets of London, with Ginny following behind them.
“Oh Merlin, a nightclub? I’m not dressed for a nightclub,” Hermione hissed to her friends as they lined up to get in.
“You look fine,” Ginny and Luna said in unison. Just as they stopped talking the bouncer let them in. The three girls headed straight for the bar, luckily there was three free stools so they could sit down.
“Excuse me,” Hermione called to the bartender, “Can we get some drinks, please?” A blonde man turned around, his cold, grey eyes locked with a pair of brown eyes that he knew only too well.
“Mione?” Hermione took one look at the man and fell off her stool in shock.
