But my love is all I have to give
Without you I don’t think I could live
“Are you okay?” Draco asked Hermione who was starring shocked at Ron’s motionless body.
“Umm… yeah, I think so. If you had have come any later I don’t know if I would be.” She noticed that Draco was trying to keep eye contact with her. She might even have gone as far as to say that he was afraid. What he was afraid of, she didn’t know.
She couldn’t look at his face anymore for fear of what she might do. So she looked down. And found that her shirt had a few more buttons open than she originally had, revealing her bra and some fairly pale skin. She realised that as the reason why Draco had been trying to keep his eyes above her chin. She blushed and quickly turned to fix her shirt. But Draco had already had his back to her when he saw she had noticed why he was trying hard only to look at her face.
After she had covered herself up again she found Draco with his back to her. She smiled at him. His hair looked just as good from the back. His neck was nice too. And his shoulders and back. He had a nice body that she hadn’t really noticed before. Then she saw his butt and started starring at it. It was a nice tight ass too. Before she got to look at his legs Draco spoke.
“Are you finished Hermione? Can I turn around?” Draco's voice pulled her out of her trance.
“Oh…yeah” he turned and looked at her wondering what she had been doing. There faces were centimetres apart. Hermione looked longingly into his eyes. They were a beautiful bluey grey. He moved to close the gap between them but stopped as he thought about what he was going to do. He wasn’t sure if he should be doing this after what she had just experienced.
“Do you want me to…” Draco whispered but Hermione had already covered his mouth with hers.
They shared a soft loving kiss and then Hermione collapsed in his arms. All the arguing and pretending to Ron had really worn her out. Draco would have let her stay in his arms forever, but her weight was a bit too much for him to handle. He wasn’t as built as he looked. He needed to get her to somewhere they could fall asleep in each other’s arms.
“Hermione… is it all right if we continue this at my place?” he whispered in her ear.
She made a mumble of agreement and Draco, holding his arms tighter around Hermione, apparated them both inside his bedroom. They lay down on the bed, still in each other’s arms. Hermione had her eyes closed and was listening to the calming beat of Draco’s heart. Draco saw how content she was to be with him.
He had felt her willing him to come to her rescue. At first he thought he had imagined it, but then it had come again. He had been in this very spot when she had reached out to him. He had been thinking about how Ron had pushed him out of the way all those years ago and now he realised how scared he was of losing her at that time. He had let Ron take over because he believed Hermione could never feel anything for him, yet here she was. In his arms, as content as a cat on it’s owner’s lap.
“I love you Draco Malfoy,” said Hermione looking up into his eyes.
He couldn’t help but smile, not smirk, but a genuine smile. “I love you too, Hermione Granger”
Hermione placed her head back on Draco’s chest and closed her eyes. Almost as soon as she did so sleep took her. Draco relaxed, head on the soft pillow, closing his own eyes. That night was the first time they spent together as an official couple and it definitely wasn’t the last.
