Chapter 6: Planning Ahead
Ginny ran all the way to the Head’s common room. When she finally reached it she caught her breath and knocked on the door three times.
“Hermione, it’s Ginny! Please open up!” Ginny yelled. There were a few seconds of silence before a red headed Hermione opened the door, mascara streaming down her face.
“Ww-hat dd-o you ww-ant?” Hermione said in between cries.
“I wanted to apologize for what Ron and Harry did. They were totally wrong, and I was too. I am so sorry I never asked what was going on. Please forgive me?” Ginny begged getting on her hands and knees and sticking her bottom lip out like a homeless puppy. Hermione let out a small laugh and wiped away a tear.
“Well… if you promise to do something with me than I will.” Hermione said with a smile on her face.
“Oh dear Merlin, I will do anything!” Ginny said leaping up from her knees and engulfing her friend in an immense hug. “So, what is it that we have to do?” Ginny asked as they entered the common room and walked to the couch to take a seat across from the flickering fire. Hermione turned to face her.
“I think this thing is going way out of hand. I need to speak with the Order, but I need back up in case they try to pull something.” Hermione said looking Ginny right in the eyes.
“So that’s where I come in.” Ginny said now catching on to where this was going.
“Right” Hermione said.
“Do you know when the next meeting is?” Hermione asked hopefully.
“Ya, they said that it would be tomorrow night after classes.
“Perfect!” Hermione said.
The two girls talked until mid-night about their plan for tomorrow’s events. Hermione said goodbye and headed upstairs to the bathroom. She was scrubbing her face when Malfoy walked in from his side.
“So… what’s up?” He asked her gesturing to her hair and eyes.
“I like to dye my hair.” Hermione said, giving him a slight shrug.
“Oh I see, so you dyed your hair bright red, brighter than Weasel’s, and changed your eye color to match. That sounds completely normal to me. How ‘bout you?” Draco said sarcastically with his infamous smirk. Hermione continued to wash her face trying to think up a comeback. She grabbed a towel and dried her face. Draco continued on.
“So are you saying that this had absolutely nothing to do with your fire tantrum?” He mocked. That was the last straw, Hermione was furious now. She drew out her wand, sprinted at him and pinned him against the wall, her wand at his throat. Hermione’s teeth were gritted so tight that the numbness was unbearable. Her fists were wrapped so tight around the top of his shirt that she felt she was going to rip it to shreds with her bear hands. Malfoy looked in her eyes searching for something, but all he saw was fire, continues flames growing bigger and bigger.
“How do you know about that?” Hermione said through her clenched teeth. Malfoy was silent.
“Answer now or so help me I will burn you until your sin falls off your body!” she screamed. Answer me now!
“I-I was at a meeting and Voldamort, h-he told us about your power and how we need you.” Malfoy said stuttering in his fear of her flames. Hermione released him and he fell to the ground. His hands flung up to his mouth. He was in shock at how easily he had let his thoughts spill.
“H-how did you do that?” He asked befuddled.
“Do what ferret?” Hermione said in a nasty tone.
“It was like I had no choice. You kept saying answer me in my head over and over until it just slipped. It was like… I was forced to say my thoughts.” Draco said now lost in thought.
“Do you mean like mind control?” Hermione asked now very interested in what he had to say.
“Yes, do you think it could be another one of your powers?” Draco asked, hoping to get an answer in return.
“Maybe it could… wait a second, why I am telling you!? You’ll just go and tell him that I have another power.” Hermione said. Then she thought for a moment. Mabey that isn’t such a bad thing.
She decided on a final action. Let them know, it will just spook them even more!
“Draco darling!” Hermione said getting closer to him. “Do you think you could do me a favor?” She asked turning on her girly charm.
“Umm… does it have to do with Voldemort?” he asked.
“Yes,” she said eyeing him.
“Then NO! I won’t do it!” He said turning his head away from her to not look into her entrancing eyes.
“Look at me.” Hermione said and he glanced into her eyes slightly. But that was just enough to get him locked into her gaze. Tell Voldemort right now everything that you have seen, and that we have talked about. Also tell him that he should be scared along with every one else in this universe, because the heir of darkness is hear with a new power no one can resist.
Hermione thought. She broke the trance and Draco blinked.
“Hermione,” Draco said. “Don’t lose yourself with the power.” and he walked to the fireplace and threw in some floo powder, heading to Voldemort’s lair to start turning the wheels of her new plan.
Hey ya’ll its slitherinlove. So let’s have a recap of what we know so far. =)
Hermione now has 2 powers (mind control and Fire power). Ginny is 100% behind her for everything that she does. They are ditching the Order right now, but they still want to give them one last shot at apologizing before they completely abandon the Order. (The visit will be next chapter).
I kind of liked this chapter. It showed Hermione’s evil side, and Draco’s un-tough side. It might sound like they are out of character, but that is what I wanted in this chapter. Please review! Then next chapter will be up next week!
