Seeing their reactions, Malfoy turned to look at the girl standing next to him. His eyes nearly popped out of his head. The blushing Hermione was dressed as a nurse. But the costume seemed to be missing a fair amount of fabric. Hermione had picked her costume because she wanted to be a nurse eventually, so it matched who she was, but it was also extremely revealing, which did not match what everyone saw her as.
The costume was a two piece. The bottom half was just a pair of red bikini bottoms. The top half went down to just above her belly button before flaring out to the sides. It was white with red around her middle and white crosses to show it was a nurse outfit. It had a red collar and white short sleeves. She wore knee-high white socks and red high-heeled shoes with it, had a stethoscope around her neck and a little nurses hat that was white with a red cross. She had had Ginny magic her frizzy hair into ringlets of curls, framing her face and she wore pink blush and red lipstick. Her nails were painted red as well. The overall effect was that she looked sexy and very un-Hermione.
“Um…” Hermione began, since she had to do what Professor McGonagall had told them to do, “Welcome to the Halloween dance. Please remember that students in years four and below must leave at ten o’clock and for those students in years five to seven, the dance ends at one o’clock. Please remember to behave yourself of you will be asked to leave. Have fun and enjoy the dance.” She smiled and motioned to the band to start playing. They did and some people began to dance and talk. Many of the people did not, they were still busy staring at Hermione.
Ginny rushed over to her and smiled. “Hey! You look adorable!” She assured Hermione.
“Thanks. So do you! I saw Harry staring at you when I came in.” She smiled slyly at the younger girl in front of her.
“Yeah, but once you came in, not a single girl in the room could hold any guys attention away from you. You made quite and entrance. I noticed Malfoy looked stunned.”
“Yeah, he’d mentioned just a few minutes before how he bet my costume was ugly and lame, so it was a bit of a shock for him.” The girls started walking over to where Harry and Ron were still staring at Hermione disbelievingly. “Hey guys, you do know that it’s rude to stare, right?” She smiled as their jaws dropped even further.
“Her-Hermone what di-did you do?” Ron stuttered. Hermione frowned.
“I didn’t ‘do’ anything. I just wore a costume to the Halloween dance. Ginny did too. Everyone did. I’m no different.”
“Yes you are!” Harry insisted. “You never dress like this. What are trying to say? What are you trying to prove?”
“Well! I’m not trying to prove anything! I picked this costume because it matches with what I want to be after leaving Hogwarts!” Sparks emitted from her eyes, literally. Harry and Ron jumped back a bit. Hermione turned on her heel and went to get a drink of punch. When she reached the punch table, a cup floated over to the punch bowl and filled itself. She didn’t remember enchanting the punch bowl to fill the drinks, but she just assumed Malfoy must have done it and soon forgot all about it.
Hermione spent most of the dance with Ginny. Lots of guys asked her to dance throughout the night, and she didn’t always say no. She was mad at Ron and Harry for making it sound like she was never pretty normally and that she really was a goody-goody nerd, so she danced with Dean, Seamus, Zacharias Smith and even Blaise Zabini. The dance that infuriated the boys the most was when Hermione danced with Draco Malfoy, but she hadn’t even chosen to chance with him, Professor McGonagall had told them that as the Heads they had to dance with each other at least once. Malfoy didn’t mind though, not when Hermione was dressed as she was.
At ten o’clock the younger students left and the dance continued until one in the morning. At that time Hermione found Malfoy so they could say the final words.
“We just want to thank you all for coming.” Hermione began. “We hope you had a wonderful time and enjoy your weekend! Please go back to your house dorms and remain there. There shouldn’t be any students wandering around in the hallways. Happy Halloween everyone!” With that, people started to file out. Hermione used her want to clean up the Great Hall.
“Ginny!” Hermione called, getting the redhead’s attention. “Do you want to have a sleep over with me?” She asked. Ginny agreed and they went back to the Head’s dorm together. When they got their Hermione said that she’d feel better if she just let Malfoy know that she had a friend over, so she sent Ginny up to her room and quickly went up the stairs to knock on Malfoy’s door.
“Yeah?” His voice called from the other side of the door.
“It’s Hermione, may I come in?” She asked. After hearing his ‘sure’ she pushed open the door and stepped in. Malfoy was sitting on his bed, taking off his shoes. He looked up when he heard her enter. He smiled inwardly at the sight of her, still in her costume.
“What do you want?” He asked, not unkindly.
“I just wanted to let you know that I had Ginny sleeping over with me tonight. I thought it might be best that you know.” She said. “If we get to loud, just let us know. We don’t want to be a nuisance.”
“Sure thing.” He said. She stated to back out of the room. “Oh, and Granger,” Malfoy said. She stopped and looked at him. “Nice costume.” She smiled, spun on her heel, making the sides of the shirt flare up and accent the red bikini bottoms, and left with a bounce in her step.
