A/N: This songfic is based on the song by Ashley Tisdale. I kind of wrote it a long time back and posted, but that was horrible. So I edited it and reposted it again. Yeah, and it’s the usual drill, read and review and all that. ;)
Disclaimer:  I do not own any of the characters, if I did do you think I'd be posting here? And do I look like Jk?

Be Good To Me

Everyday is getting worse
Do the same things and it hurts
I don't know if I should cry
All I know is that I'm tryin'

Hermione splashed water on her face. She looked at herself in the mirror. Her eyes were red and puffy. He was doing it again; once again, he was the reason she cried her eyes out. He was the reason she felt so unsure of herself, so insecure about what they shared. And she hated it. She was the kind of girl who was sure about everything she was doing, every move she was making and about to make.
I wanna believe in you
I wanna believe in you
But you make it so hard to do

She was tired of waiting for Ron to show up for their dates. She loved him a lot. Yes, she really did. But even the most patient person gets sick of waiting for someone she loves with all her heart to show up for dates that he invariably ends up missing.

What's the point of makin' plans, You break all the ones we had
I don't know where we went wrong, Cause we used to be so strong
I wanna believe in you
She was so in love with him, and she was sure he loved her too. That was what they were a couple totally in love. It was sickening, really, to the third person, who saw them when they were together, it was that good. You couldn’t help but smile, even on your worst days, when you saw them together.

So why can't you be
Be good to me
I don't ask for much
All I want is love

A whisper in the ear, a random touch, a small peck on the lips. It was not PDA, it was first love.

Someone to see
That's all I need
Somebody to be
Good to me

It had never been a smooth ride for them, ever. At first, Ron thought she was a know-it-all (he still did, but it was diferent) The it progressed to being friends, then best friends and finally after much glaring and making each other jealous by "getting-off" with other members of the opposite sex (Hermione:Cormac McLaggen & Viktor Krum and and Ron; Lavender Brown. That was bad enough) several falling-outs later, they were lovers. She fought with him a lot, like all the time. If they weren't with Harry they were fighting. It was not that she loved fighting with him; he was just such an insensitive prick most of the time that most of their conversations had been arguments. She remembered the day when she first started seeing Ron in a new light. He had just come running to her after Malfoy’s curse had hit her and her front teeth had started to grow. He had been the first person to notice that they were different once she’d gotten them shrunk.

 I used to think I had it all Then one day we hit a wall
I had hoped you were the one Where's my dream, where has it gone
I wanted to be with you Forever just me and you


From then on she knew that Ron wasn’t just her best friend. He was more than that. He was her knight in shining armour, though no one could see how it was possible. He was not as intelligent as she was, extremely moody and so freaking insecure about everything from himself to their relationship. He didn’t like to read and loved the outdoors whereas Hermione loved books; she regarded them next to God and preferred curling up with a good book by the fire any day as opposed to the outdoors.

So why can't you be
Be good to me, I don't ask for much
All I want is love, Someone to see
That's all I need, Somebody to be
Good to me
Gotta be good to me, Good to me

When they’d first started dating, it had been great. Ron was the perfect boyfriend and they’d spend hours together. But that was before he got that wretched job. Granted, she was happy for him, but it was that thing that had resulted in their relationship coming to this state. He became obsessed with it. He refused to come home from work. And she thought she was the workaholic/one with OCD tendencies about the smallest of things.

Tonight was the fourth date. The fourth, “Next time I swear I’ll be on time, babe.” He was supposed to have been here two and a half hours ago.

Where do I go from here
You've gotten under my skin
And I don't know how
To get out of this place that I'm in

It was so frustrating, dealing with all he was putting her through. Sure she loved him, but was it worth it? Was loving Ron worth all that she was going through? All the pain, confusion, hurt and anger?

I don't ask for much
All I want is love, Someone to see
That's all I need, Somebody to be

This was the final straw. If he missed one more date—.
Somebody to be, Somebody to be
Good to me, Good to me
They were through. Hermione dabbed her face dry with a towel and looked at herself one last time before she walked out of the bathroom. One last look at the towel she’d tossed aside left her hoping she wouldn’t become like that towel she’d just thrown away. Discarded; unwanted.

Gotta be good to me, Good to me

A/N: So what do you think? Is it better? :)
