Two dark figures loomed in the after-glow of the floo-in. One of course being my mother but the other person had still not revealed themselves. Jane Granger stepped out of the fire place and none other than the oh so mighty Lucius Malfoy followed.
Wow he looks really out of place; this isn’t a mansion after –all.
“So this is your daughter “He sneered grimly at me
“Yes this is her daughter “I sneered right back.
If he had paid any attention he would have known that we were related. Hello? Didn’t he know his own family members last name.
Watching him look so scathingly around our house was not very rewarding. I could see him look at every single object critically as if waiting for them to produce a green smoking odor and then explode. Then mum broke the ice.
“So Lucius has come to tell us, Hermione, that we will be living in the Malfoy Mansion from now on,”
Then I exploded.
“WHAT!!?, ARE YOU SERIOUS ! YOU EXPECT ME TO GO LIVE WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE KILLING THOUSONDS, NO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME? AND WHAT IS THE GREAT DARK LORD GOING TO SAY ABOUT This…….”
Ok, I have to admit that I am not a very good at ranting so this whole yelling thing was not a good idea. Lucius had pretended not to hear a word and was trying to look interested in my Dad’s computer. But he was standing at least ten feet away from it so it looked pretty awkward.
“Now listen Hermione, this is all very new but Lucius and I were very good friends when we were little and we want to become reacquainted.” she said sternly.
“More like we will be reacquainted.”
Ok , so no getting out of this one. Well I better make the best of this. I’ll just stay in my room the whole time and refuse to eat. Dad would return from the Dentist convention in America and he would find and empty house and panic and probably call the police, so then they would send out a search party and Lucius would go to muggle jail for kid-napping. Yeah that would definitely work, NOT. But hey? A girl can dream right?
The next few minutes flew by in seconds it felt like a heart wrenching love story ,that I really, really wanted to watch was stuck on fast forward. Before I could even say goodbye to my home I was caught up in the floo’s magical vacuum and sucked away to the Malfoy Manor.
As I stepped out of the fireplace I immediately knew that my predictions were correct. It looked exactly like an early medieval hell hole. To the left was a stair-case going downward. Probably to the dungeon where many people were probably being tortured right now. And then as if on cue a murderous scream echoed from the dark hall-way . I looked to my mother but as always she just pretended that nothing had happened.
Then the front door opened and someone came marching through.
“ Father , you must see the conditions of the field the goal posts are not spaced right , fix it…….” He first saw my mother and then me. He opened his mouth to make a comment but Lucius went over and rapped his cane harshly at the boy’s knees .
“ Now, now Draco you mustn’t be rude to our guest , may I introduce you to my cousin Jane Granger or formally known as Jane Malfoy and to her daughter Hermione Granger”
I sneered pointedly at Draco but he was glaring at the floor in front of him . Probably contemplating his new insulting nickname for me since mud-blood wasn’t valid. Finally he looked up and stared strangely at me. Malfoy’s eyes were not cold and gray , but slightly blue as he stared at me, Eww he’s staring at me.
