His voice echoed in my head. Pansy. Pansy. Pansy. Over and over again as I was overwhelmed by the jealousy I felt towards her by just hearing her name coming from Draco's lips, it seemed wrong that his lips and his soft voice would even say her name. It wasn't right and I hated it.
Looking at Draco I saw that he was observing me carefully, curious to see how I reacted perhaps. My reaction was probably bad as I felt my hands curl up in fists of rage, I was mad with Pansy, not Draco. But he didn't know that and leaned back a bit to get away from me. I could feel my jaw clench just before I counted to ten and took a few calming breaths.
“What did Pansy want then?” I didn't mean to, but I spat her name out like it was the foulest of words.
He tilted his head to the left and gave me a pained look. “Hermione...”
“What? Is it so wrong that I want to know what she wrote? You're...” I caught myself before I said anything else, I bit my lip as I realized how pathetic I could have sounded.
“I'm what?” He asked with furrowed eyebrows. I rolled my eyes as I shook my head as to tell him to forget about it. “No, tell me.” He smiled and leaned close to me.
“Don't even try to change the topic.” I backed away from him, but he just continued to lean in, and before I knew it he had climbed on top of me and were planting kisses along my jaw line, down my neck... “Draco...” I said as I put my hands on Draco's naked chest and pushed him off. He groaned and looked at me as if he just wanted me to forget the whole thing. “Tell me.”
He gave an annoyed sigh before he kissed my neck again, ignoring my attempts of pushing him away, every time his lips came in contact with my skin, I felt as if my body was on fire, my body burned in the most amazing way. He started to mumble against my skin in an angry voice.
“Pansy tried to...” He kissed the spot behind my ear, his actions was so different from the tone of his voice, it confused me. “convince me how much she loved me..” Another torturing sweet kiss against my neck, it was taking away some of the fury I felt as he told me about Parkinson. “She told me that she had not meant for my life to be in danger.” His tongue licked its way from my jaw to my collarbone in a delicate way that made me shudder. “She told me that she was sorry for cheating on me, 'cause that isn't something I haven't heard before...” He softly bit my shoulder and then he let his lips ghost over the mark he left. “She also wrote all those little hearts over her i's.” I regretted talking him in to telling me, every sentence he spoke was another stab in my heart. His breath tickled my skin “She said that she was still in love with me. She even said that she-”
“Draco, stop talking. Please.” I said in hiss, trying to suppress my anger. “I don't want to hear more.”
“You asked for it.” He kissed me hard on the lips, almost punishing. “Where was I, oh yeah. She even said that-”
“Draco! Please...” He silenced me with another brutal kiss. I responded automatically, it didn't matter how pissed or hurt I was. I pressed against him as he laid more of his weight on me. A strangled growl got caught in my throat as his tongue invaded my mouth. Despite the hard way his lips were pressed against mine, his tongue was gentle. That confused me too. I managed to turn my head. “You're being a jerk.”
“'Jerk' is my middle name.” His eyes were icy and cold as he looked at me, but they softened by every second. He closed his eyes for a few seconds and I realized that he wasn't upset with me, he was upset because he was talking about her. “I don't like to talk about her, just the thought of her makes me want to throw up. No, not because I love her, I don't think I ever did, I don't even care for her any more, not after what she did and what she planned to do to you.” I remembered the fact that the potion poured over Draco was meant to be poured over me, at least if Pansy had gotten as she wanted. “I hate her with every fibre of my being.” With a sigh he let his head fall down to rest in the crook of my neck, his breath warm on my skin.
”There is something that she told me that I need to tell you though…” When I tried to protest he shook his head while still resting it against me. “You need to know this.” The words seemed to be forced out.
“Okay.” I sighed as I heard his pained voice. What the hell had she written?
“Her family is invited to the New Years party at the Manor.”
It took me a while to let the words sink in, but then when they did; my eyes widened. I found myself holding on to Draco’s arm very tightly. I was surprised that he didn’t pull away from my grasp. My silence could have led him to believe that I wouldn’t have heard him, but my tight hold of him was more than enough to let him know that I had heard him, loud and clearly.
“Maybe I shouldn’t come then.”
That made him lift his head so that he was just inches away from mine. “What?”
“You know… If Pansy is coming too, then maybe I should just stay home.” My voice sounded pathetically sad even in my own ears.
“No, that is out of the question. You are my guest, my girlfriend, and you have more right than her to be there. If it hadn’t been for the fact that my parents are thinking about their reputation then they would have take the Parkinsons invitation back, seeing as they were invited before I almost died. I don’t want her there any more than you do, but look at it this way; if you stay home, then she wins. You have to come.”
His hand reached up to touch my face, pushed my hair behind my ear and then he let his fingers trace softly down my cheek. “You’ll come, right?”
“Right. I’ll come.”
Draco broke out in a bright smile just before he let his lips brush against mine again, so much softer this time, tenderly. I became totally oblivious to everything else but him, his soft touches on my skin, the way his hands roamed my body, the soft movements of his tongue against mine, the way his lips were softly pressed against mine and when we broke apart; his breath against my face.
We were both panting slightly by the time we broke apart and he rested his head against mine. I got very aware of the fact that his hand had travelled up under my t-shirt, and rested right below my left breast. It made my heart beat, if possible, even faster, but the talk about Parkinson had me in a bad mood, and I didn't want our first time together to be right after talking about his ex girlfriend. Apparently he agreed as he softly removed his hand and rolled off me. He dragged me with him so that my head was resting on his chest, with his arm around me. No more words were needed. I fell asleep while listening to the beat of his heart.
One of the most amazing feelings there is, is to wake up with the weight of an arm around you, tucking you close to someone. That feeling that you belong together with someone, the feeling of being complete, just as you wake up next to someone else. In my case, that someone was Draco. I just laid there for a while, before I felt the sun start to dance on my body and I rolled around and reached down from the bed to let my hand search the floor for my watch, I couldn't find it so I pushed myself closer to the edge of the bed and hung my head down to look for it, I was sure that I left it just by the bed on the floor, but I couldn't see it.
I muttered some not so pretty words as I pushed myself further over the edge so that I could see under the bed. There it was, but as I was about to reach for it I slid off the bed and down to the floor with a soft thud, the cover followed be down and wrapped itself around me as I laid there, holding a hand over my mouth so that I wouldn't wake Draco with my laughter. How pathetic I must have looked... But at least I could reach the freaking watch. Two hours left until the train left, I noticed as I sat up; my back against the bed. Should I wake Draco up, or should I let him sleep for a while longer? I turned my head to look at him, he was sleeping so peacefully, his face looking more innocent than ever. He was smiling faintly, making me wonder what he was dreaming about.
I decided to let him sleep and made my way in to the bathroom to take a shower.
The light in the bathroom was dim, and had a much older feeling to it than the bathroom in the Heads room, but I couldn't decide which one of the two bathrooms I preferred. The one I was standing in was more old fashioned, which I liked a lot, and the walls were not white, they were dark brown, and looked like polished wood. I raised an eyebrow as I touched it, it felt like glass and was warm. There was also a golden framed mirror in there, which was similar to the one I had at home. I felt a jolt of excitement as I thought about the fact that we were leaving to go home to visit my family today, and truth to be told, I was a bit terrified. What if Draco didn't like my parents? Or freaked out over all the Muggle things?
I sighed as I faced the mirror and truly looked at myself, I was shocked to find myself looking so different, it felt as if I was looking in to the eyes of a whole other person. When had I last looked at myself? The last time I had really looked, closely? I couldn't remember, but I was sure that I had not looked like this. The person in the mirror looked back at me, she looked nothing like the Hermione that I had seen in the mirror after the war, that Hermione had been so broken, so damaged.
This Hermione was glowing, the hint of a smile was on her lips and she looked well and truly happy.
Her hair was not bushy, I raised my eyebrow at that, my hair should have been bushy, I couldn't remember the last time I had had a good hair day without using a spell. I shrugged it off and started to observe myself again.
I was not as skinny as I had been, I was back into my old shape, not that I minded the slight weight gain, it was probably very good for me. It actually suited me. I turned around to watch how my back looked, and I let my eyes wander down my body and raised my eyebrows in delight to find that I liked what I saw.
I walked away from the mirror while I took off the clothes I had on, and then I stepped in to the shower.
When I was stepped out of the shower I put on some clothes and then I went back to stand before the mirror. I cast some hair spells, just because I knew that when my hair had just been washed; it would be out of control. I thanked Merlin for magic.
I proceeded to apply some make up, when I was somewhat pleased with how I looked, I walked out to find Draco trashing around in the bed. I recognized his pained expression; he was having one of his nightmares.
“Draco!” I called as I rushed up to him to try to wake him, with soft movements I shook him, not too fast since I knew that it would scare him. “Draco, wake up.”
“No...” he gasped silently before he opened his eyes. When he saw me, he shut his eyes and took a deep breath. I sat down beside him on the bed and waited. “That was the worst one yet.” He said softly as he shook his head and opened his eyes to stare up at the ceiling. I put my hand on his, just to let him know that I was there.
“It was a memory.” He mumbled. I took a deep breath as he did, he rarely spoke of dreams, and he hardly ever spoke of his memories of the war. “He was there, they were all there... He forced me to- to torture them.”I knew he was talking about Voldemort, he didn't need to say it. “I didn't want to, but he gave me no choice, do it or die; do it or watch your family die. Their faces... I'll never forget their faces or their pleas, and there was nothing I could do to help them. I was so powerless, and he made me torture them, over and over again...”
Never before had he spoken about the past like this, and I didn't know what to say or do, so I just sat there and held his hand as he continued. “It was a family, which had displeased V-Voldemort, I can't remember... No, wait... It was Rowle's family, one of the Deatheaters, he had... He had called for The Dark lord when you three had escaped from them, and I had to punish him and his family. The youngest girl, she couldn't have been older than ten, her screams were almost as bad as yours when Bellatrix tortured you. But the knowledge that I was the one to make her scream like that, it tore me apart; never before had I been so disgusted.
When I was dismissed I walked out as fast as I could, and I saw the green light fill the room, four times. I understood that he had killed every member in the family except Rowle himself... I could hear his scream of pain. As soon as I was out of his sight, I threw up.”
I remembered the night we had been captured, Narcissa had been there, she had said; Remember what he did to Rowle and Dolohov?
This what what she had been talking about...
“There was nothing you could have done.” I said slowly as I squeezed his hand.
“If I could undo it, I would.”
He sat up and looked at me, his grey eyes burned their way in to my soul as he observed me closely.
Hermione, I...” That was as far as he came before his voice shut down and he shook his head. “Thank you for being here, for being mine. For staying, despite what I have done in the past.”
Then he kissed me, slowly and insecurely, as if he was afraid that I would now turn away and run, when he had told me what he had been forced to do. I put my arms slowly around his neck, and pressed myself closer to him, he broke the kiss and put his arms around me instead, and we held each other in a tight embrace. The phrase Just because you don't say it, doesn't mean you don't feel it came to mind. I knew that I loved him, I just couldn't say it. I don't know why it was so hard to say it. I wondered briefly if he felt the same way I did...
“I'm not going anywhere.” I reassured him softly.
“What did I ever do to deserve you?” He mumbled, mostly to himself I guessed. When we let each other go, he asked how much time we had left here, and I smiled at the mental image of myself falling of the bed to reach my watch.
“The train will be leaving in about an hour.” I said, and he kissed me quickly before he stood up and put on some black trousers. I stood up before him and put my hands on his bare chest, he was warm, then I kissed a puzzled Draco, he looked at me like I was a bit crazy. I just giggled and walked to sit on the other side of the bed and watched him as he pulled on a black shirt.
At eleven o'clock sharp we walked in to the compartment in which Blaise and Amber sat, hand in hand, and as we sat down opposite of them Amber lit up.
I greeted her happily, to whereas Draco just gave her the smallest of nods without even smiling.
Her face fell and she snorted at him before she turned to Blaise. “What's up with him?” She motioned towards Draco but directed the question towards Blaise, who grinned.
“I think that he is a wee bit nervous.” He almost started to laugh, something that made Draco glare at him.
“Shut up.” He snapped. I looked between the both boys and wondered what the hell they were on about, Amber caught my eye and she looked every bit as lost as I felt. Blaise let out a laugh; he just couldn't seem to hold it back. He shook his head while he gasped out his apologizes.
“Sorry, mate, we all understand how you feel.”
“We don't...” Said Amber with raised eyebrows and I nodded in agreement. Draco groaned and let his head fall back against the wall behind him, as we all knew that Blaise was going to tell us.
“He is fucking nervous, he is. It's not every day that a Malfoy meets his girlfriends Muggle parents. No offence.” He added, but I just shrugged to let him know that none was taken. I glanced over at Draco who looked a little flushed and I understood then, as I looked at him, just how nervous he was. He gave me a faint smile and I hit him playfully on his arm.
“That's what you're nervous about?”
“Ah... Yes.” He admitted and rolled his eyes at himself. I found him quite adorable in that moment, and he had never looked less like a Deatheater.
“They won't bite.” I laughed at his expression, he actually looked relieved.
“Hermione.” began Blaise awkwardly. “Does your parents know about Draco's... Past?”
I bit my lip as I thought it over, how much had I told them about Draco?
Yes, I had told them about 'Malfoy who had it as his personal mission to make my life hell' and that was something that I had told them after each year, so I figured that they would remember that, but no, I had not told them about him being forced to become a Deatheater.
“No, they don't.” I saw how all of them let out a breath that they had been holding.
“Nothing?” asked Draco shyly. “Not even the way I used to...” He trailed off and just looked at me sadly, I knew what he meant.
“Well, they know about that but nothing about you being a Deatheater, or the mission or anything like that.”
“Shouldn't they know? I just have a feeling about... Never mind.”
“Do you wanna tell them?” I asked, somewhat shocked. “And have a feeling about what?”
“I just have a feeling that we should tell them before someone else does... Like Weasley.” He spat out the name and I froze, I looked at him wide eyed; that possibility hadn't even crossed my mind. But of course, that wouldn't surprise me. It sounded like something Ron could do, just to try to break us up.
“You're right, we'll tell them.”
“Wow, that thought did not calm my nerves.” despite his words, he couldn't help to smile, even if it was the smallest of smiles.
“Come on, if we just tell them everything then they'll understand. It isn't like you had a choice, you had to do what you did. My parents are very understanding, Draco.”
He looked at me very, very doubtingly. “Even when it comes to the fact that their daughters boyfriend is a Deatheater?”
“You're not a Deatheater.” I muttered. It was true, in my eyes he wasn't a Deatheater and he had never truly been one. He was a boy who had been used by a megalomaniac, he had never been given a choice. The mere thought of it made me angry.
“But..” He didn't seem to know what to say. “Okay.” He finally said and took a deep breath. “Fill me in, prepare me.”
When I just looked at him like he had grown an extra head he chuckled. “What are their names? What do they like? What do they work with?”
I turned to face him and looked him in the eye, he seemed so ready to get information; it was almost laughable.
“Their names are Jeff and Allison Granger, they've been married for twenty years. My mum likes to cook and my dad's hobby is guitars, he has a whole collection of them and he loves to play. They are both dentists.” It wasn't much, but it was enough to make Draco smile. His whole face had lit up when I mentioned the guitars. I remembered vaguely that he had told me that he played.
“Do you have any pets?”
“The owl,” I nodded towards the owl beside me. “And a cat, Crookshanks.”
Draco raised an eye as I mentioned the cat then he chuckled. “Nice.”
“What are dentists?” asked Amber, her eyes almost shocked and I blushed, I had forgotten that I was sitting in a compartment with a bunch of Purebloods. They had never heard of...
“It's people who works with teeth, right?”
It was Blaise who had spoken and everyone's attention turned from me to him. “Right.” I said slowly.
“What?” He snapped at Draco who looked at him amused. “My mother dated a Half blood from Austria once, his sister was a dentist.”
“I'm just impressed, Blaise!” chuckled Draco and held up his hands in surrender before he turned to me. “So, they work with teeth?”
“Yeah... Nothing special.”
“Do you reckon they would approve?” he asked and smiled widely, showing off his perfectly white teeth.
“How could they not?”
Somehow I had a feeling that we were not only talking about teeth any more, but about him being approved overall.
The rest of the ride he asked me more about my family, and about the Muggle world and electronic advices. He seemed to become totally terrified by the idea that we would be driving home to my place in a car, at the same time as Amber fell asleep on the opposite side of us, her long blonde hair fell in curls down Blaise's arm and stomach as he held her close to him. After a while, I followed her leads and fell asleep while resting my head on Draco.
Somebody shook me gently, waking me up. I blinked a few times as I didn't recognize my surroundings at first, then when I took in the bright light inside the train, I glanced out the window. The sun was shining even though it was snowing. I then realized that the train had stopped and as I sat up my stomach growled. Well, I thought, I can eat as soon as I get home. As I thought about the fact that Draco was actually coming with me home made me smile.
“We're here.” Draco said, sounding less nervous than before. He gave me a crooked smile, the one I loved.
“I noticed.” I answered as I grabbed my stuff and followed Draco as we got off the train. I looked around, searched for someone I would recognize. “Where's Blaise?”
“Over there.” He said as he nodded his head towards Amber and Blaise, who stood facing us among the many people who were running around at Kings Cross. They both motioned for us to come over there, Draco looked down at me with a raised eyebrow as if asking me if I wanted to, and as I nodded he smiled and we started to walk towards them. People were hugging each other, laughing, and running towards each other, while we made our way to say goodbye for now. I would miss Blaise a lot and I didn't even want to think about how it would feel when we graduated and we went different ways in life. Where would me and Draco go? Would we still be together? I had never thought about that until right then, and I didn't need to start to worry about the future just then so I just pushed the thought out of my mind and put a smile on my face as I embraced Amber and mumbled my goodbyes to her.
Then it was Blaises turn, he hugged me tightly and then he ruffled my hair and that was it. We didn't make a big deal out of it, since we would be seeing each other in a couple of weeks.
Draco said to me that we should probably go find my parents and let Blaise and his girl have some time alone before they had do go to their families.
It wasn't until Draco and I set out to find my parents that I started to get nervous for real, so I grabbed Draco's hand, he gave me a puzzled look, but my eyes must have looked terrified because he squeezed mine comforting. As I let my eyes look away from his piercing orbs I saw them, they were standing next to each other, as close as they could while looking around, searching for me, correction; us.
My mum, Allison Granger, with her brown curly hair was much shorter than my dad, Jeff Granger, but yet, she was taller than me. She was wearing a blue jacket and he was wearing a white, I tried hard to not think about the fact that her jacket was Ravenclaw colours. Oh the irony, she was as much of a bookworm as I, and her thirst for knowledge was worthy a Ravenclaw.
I was just glad that I was brave enough to be a Gryffindor, it wasn't that my mother wasn't brave, she just... gave in too easily. My father on the other hand, he always stood up for himself and I strongly suspected that I had gotten some of my bravery from him. I was glad that he had it in him, I wouldn't have survived in Ravenclaw. Then they saw me, and as my mother smiled at me and raised her hand to wave, I was overwhelmed by happiness. What if I had never been able to get them home, safe and all, from Australia? I shuddered at the thought that I could have lost them, if the Deatheaters had found them...
“There they are!” I said through my smile as I glanced up at Draco who looked down at me, he looked fairly calm. I could feel that he followed my gaze back to my parents as we got closer to them.
“Hermione!” My mum nearly shouted as she ran up to me and threw her arms around me, making me let go of Draco's hand. She parted quickly to look at me, she looked more emotional than she had ever done when I went home for Christmas. “You're so grown up...” She hugged me again as I laughed at her happiness. I heard my father clear his throat behind my mum and she let go, giving him access to me, he too embraced me in a tight hug.
“Mum, Dad.” I said as they were done. “This is Draco, my boyfriend. Draco, this is my parents.”
“Hello, Draco, I am Allison.” My mother said and extended her hand, I looked nervously up at Draco, but with a smile he shook her hand.
“Nice to meet you, Mrs Granger.” His smile reached his eyes, and for a moment my mother looked blinded before she told him to simply call her Allison, or Ally. I understood her when she was momentarily blinded by him, he could be breathtaking when he wanted to. My father extended his hand as well.
“I am Jeff Granger.”
“Pleased to meet you, Mr Granger.” I smiled sheepishly, he was acting like a true gentleman. But then again, that was how he had been brought up... apart from how his father had taught him to treat those 'below' him. That part wasn't all so gentlemanly.
An awkward silence fell over us and we just looked at each other before my mother spoke up.
“How about we drive home, and catch up when we're there?” She had barely finished her sentence before we all started to walk, Draco took my hand again.
The drive home was hilarious, for me. For Draco on the other hand, I suspected, it had been a nightmare. I don't think he breathed at all, and his eyes were wide open and his hand held on to mine as if his life depended on it. I couldn't help but to laugh out loud when he finally was able to get out of the car.
“Do not laugh at me.” He hissed annoyed, a tone that made me try to be serious. His tone didn't go unnoticed by my parents either, but I knew that he wasn't too serious about it. However, they didn't and my mother turned half around to look at us both and Draco hung his head as if on cue, to avoid her glance. I suppressed a smile as I looked at him, he raised his head to look innocently at my mother; she bought it and gave him a warm smile before she turned away again. Draco turned his head and grinned at me.
“Charming.” I smiled at him and he pulled me closer to him and I let my arm go around his waist as I tilted my head up to look at him, but I wasn't expecting his lips to crash down on mine but they did. “What was that for?” I breathed as he eased back, while smiling adoringly. I melted up on seeing his smile.
“I'm glad to be alive after that ride. Seriously, Hermione, you willingly get in to that thing but you were scared of being on a broom?”
“Uh... Yes?” I answered as we walked through the door to our house. Draco looked around, observing the place that was so much smaller than his gigantic Manor. Our kitchen was just to the left as we walked in, and if one looked straight ahead they would see the living room.
“Please, do come in. Make yourself at home.” My mother said, and my dad nodded approvingly to her words. Draco seemed almost shocked at their words, but thanked them. I suggested that we'd carry our things up to my room, and Draco nodded, suddenly very eager.
I walked ahead of him up the stairs and took to the left before I reached my door, I turned to give him a look that I hoped he would take for if you laugh, you're dead. He gave me a crooked smile before I opened the door and stepped in.
The warm natural colours of brown, orange and green met my eyes and the familiar smell of home reached me. Draco pretty much pushed me out of the way as he hurried in to get a better look, he walked around in my room and had a closer look at everything. He smiled widely as he saw my bookshelf filled with books.
It was so unreal, to have Draco Malfoy in my room; all I could do was to stare at him. His black clothing made him look paler, but it only suited him. He sat down on my bed.
“I like your room. The bed is comfy.” He winked and I blushed slightly as I walked over to sit next to him. “I like the colours, especially the green.” he chuckled lightly as I rolled my eyes. “No, seriously. It's beautiful, I like it.” Briefly I wondered how his room looked like.
“Thank you.” I managed to choke out as he looked at me and unleashed every bit of intensity in his eyes. He was so damned gorgeous. I would drown if I didn't look away, so I did. “You should unpack a bit.”
He didn't seem to happy about my suggestion as he sighed and took a hold of me and easily pulled me down with him on the bed. His eyes twinkling mischievously as he rolled us around so that he was on top of me, then he lowered his head slowly, making my heart beat so fast I felt as if it was about to beat it's way out of my ribcage. His lips, his soft lips were just inches away from mine and he didn't have any rush and then there was his eyes, oh Merlin, his eyes. The perfect shade of grey looked me right in the eye and if I had been standing up, then my knee's would have gone weak. The darkened outline of his eyes that I loved to see in contrast to his much lighter shade of grey, though it might have made his eyes colder to some, it only made them warmer to me.
His hands were on each side of me, but I didn't feel trapped at all under his gaze, in fact... I felt amazingly safe. No one could ever make me feel as safe as he did, and it amazed me each time the feeling hit me, the feeling of being completely safe. There had been a time where I had felt anything but safe, when I had always looked over my shoulder, expecting to see a Deatheater but not any more. Not when I was with him.
Then his lips brushed against mine and I closed my eyes at the touch, he sure knew what he was doing, and what affect he had on me. Still in slow movements he let his lips press against mine, making me feel like I was on fire, and then his tongue came out to trace my lower lip to ask for permission to enter, who was I to say no?
My hands trailed up his chest to rest at the back of his neck, playing with his hair and urging him on.
Unfortunately, we broke apart as we heard my mums laugh from downstairs and sat up slowly. Draco chuckled before he smoothed out my hair, and stood up before he offered me his hand.
“Should we tell them right away or wait until after dinner?” I asked him as he put his hands around my waist to lead me down.
“Ah... It's probably better to do it as soon as possible. Don't you agree?” He spoke in a whisper with his lips so close to my ear that I couldn't do anything but agree, damn, he was good. I shivered as his teeth nibbled at my lobe before he let me go to just hold my hand, not wanting to upset my parents. Oh, my parents... How would they take it? I chewed on my lip nervously as we walked down the stairs to tell them everything.
