Recap:Hermione looked at all of them, tears gathering at the corners of her eyes. She hung her head down and whispered, "Please forgive me you guys." She looked up at James and stared defiantly at him. "I will never marry you. Go to hell."
James' face contorted in anger. "Fine then you bitch! Die! Avada Kedav-"
Someone tapped james on the shoulder and he turned. When he saw who it was his face turned into one of pure horrer.
Draco glared at him. He then pulled his arm back and snapped his fist foreward. His fist collided with James' jaw causing him to reel backwards. "Don't you ever call my fiance a bitch again, you arsehole."
Story: Hermione stared wide eyed at her supposed-to-be-dead-but-not fiance.
He smiled at her. " 'Ello love." He held out a hand. "Did you miss me?"
Hermione smiled slowly. "DRACO!" She cried out and jumped into his arms. "Oh Draco, you're alive!" She sobbed into his chest.
Draco gathered her to his chest and softly stroked her hair. "Calm down my love. I'm here now, alive and well." She looked up at him. "But how? How are you alive?! I watched him kill right in front of my eyes Draco, theres no way you could have lived."
"Yes we all would like to know that." James said slowly standing up and pushing his wand against Hermione's neck. "Hello Draco, nice to see you again. I should have burned your body to make sure you were dead. Now step away from my wife."
"Hang on!" Hermione yelled. "You just wanted to kill me you idiot."
"Well now I've changed my mind. I'm going to marry you, kill all of your friends and be Voldemort's succesor and rule the world! And after that I'l-" He stopped talking and fell to the floor showing Blaise behind him.
He looked at Hermione and Draco. "I hate monologues." Draco smiled and enveloped his friend in a hug. "Thanks mate."
Blaise pulled back and smiled. "You're welcome."
"Um a little help down here?" Ron groaned from the ground.
Blaise and Draco looked at each other. "Why should we help you?" They said at the same time.
"Because it would be the nice thing to do." Hermione said from behind them, glaring at their backs, making the hairs on the back of their necks stand. "And I'll pound your heads in if you don't." Ginny said standing up.
Blaise gulped and held out a hand to Ron. "Come on Weasel- Ron." Ron glared up at him but accepted his hand at his sister's glare. Harry and Rupert were then helped up from Draco.
"We should all go to the infermary." Ginny said and Blaise nodded in agreement.
"Wait." Hermione said and everyone looked at her "Draco," She said as she turned to him. "Please I need to know, now before anything else happens. how you're alive."
Draco smiled slightly and grabbed her hand. "This," he said as he lightly stroked her ring. "This is what brought me back. Its old magic, and love activates it. Its like when Harry's mom gave up her life for him, he was protected against Voldemort's curse. Except here, love activates the ring which in turn brings a person back to life. It only works with true love, and you can't just feel the love, you have to say it, and vise versa. And it only works with women, so thats a drawback."
Hermione glared and slapped him upside his head. Then she smiled and snuggled into his chest. "I love you Draco."
"I love you too Hermione, with my heart,my soul and my body. The last one in many ways."
Hermione smild. "You are such a guy."
Blaise smiled and looked at Ginny. "Well, since they are confessing, why don't we?"
Ginny blushed and Ron's head snapped back and forth between the two. "What? Confess about what Ginny?"
"Oh Ron you dolt." Hermione sighed. She turned to him and gave him an I-can't-believe-you-are-so-obtuse look. "They like each other and they've had to hide it in fear of you being a complete, overreactive idiot and forebidding her from dating him just because he is a Slytherin. Now you know and if you dare say anything about I swear I will hex you into the next century."
Ron turned so red from both embarresment and anger that he just turned on his heel in left.
Draco smirked. "The most sensible thing I think I've ever seen him do in the time I've known him."
Harry sighed. "I'd better go after him and see if he's okay." Harry walked over to James and grabbed both his and Ron's wands. He walked over to Hermione and gave her a hug. "I'm glad your okay 'Mione." He whispered.
Hermione smiled. "Me too. Thanks so much Harry, for saving me before."
He shrugged. "Its okay, you've helped me so many times in the past, I don't even think that made up half of my dept. Well I should go after the flaming weasel."
"Harry!" Hermione gasped. Harry blushed. "What? I can't call him names every once and while? Bye!" He yelled as he ran after the Flaming Weasel.
Blaise chuckled and took Ginny's hand and put it into the crook of his arm. "Shall we go Madam?" Ginny giggled. "Lets. See you later Hermione, Draco."
"Bye Mate, see you tonight or tomorrow?" He asked with a devilish grin, looking at the closeness between Hermione and Draco.
Hermione gasped. "Tonight you annoyance." Draco grabed her waist, pulled her closer and nuzzled her neck. "But don't count on it." He said as he smirked down at his fiance.
Hermione punched him in his gut making Blaise and Ginny laugh. "See you later." Blasie said as he got his and Ginny's wands from where James had dropped them and led Ginny away.
Hermione felt a hand on her shoulder and looked behind her at her Uncle. He smiled down at her. "I'm very proud of you, and I know you're father would ahve been proud too. And you, "He said as he glared at Draco. "If you so much as hurt her or do something to her that she doesn't like, I swear I will hunt you down like a dog, hang you up by your thumbs in the coldest darkest dungeon I can find and get a Dementor to suck out your pathetic little soul. Do I make myself clear?"
Draco gulped and nodded hastily. "Good." Rupert said. He looked back over to James and sighed. "I'll take him up and hand him to the authorities." He walked over to James' unconcious form and grabbed the remaining wands. He put James' wand in his robes and tossed Hermione's to her. "You may want to get Draco's wand from wherever you were before all of this happened. Wingardium Leviosa. " He slowly levitated James' down the hall. "See you later. Oh," He turned a bit and looked back at them. "You better not do what Blaise was implying earlier. Bye!"
Hermione shook her head. "It's times like these where I was glad that my dad, my muggle dad that is, didn't get that much into my life."
Draco laughed and pulled her to him. He grabbed her chin and raise her face up to his. "So, do you want to know what Heaven looks like?"
Hermione smiled up at her one true love. "No thanks. I'd rather learn by myself, or with you by my side if thats okay."
"I wouldn't want it any other way." He whispered as he softly broguht his lips down onto hers.
