Recap from last chapter:
“Well then maybe you should figure out what to say to her before someone else decides that she’s too pretty to let go of.” Harry replied, his tone of voice the same as that of a teacher trying to get a particularly slow student to understand the lesson.
“Yeah I will tonight at practice. I’ll ask her at play practice. Thanks Harry you’re the best mate in the world!” I nearly jumped with joy at the thought of telling Hermione my feelings for her.
Temporarily Ron’s POV
“Hello and welcome to our first Romeo and Juliet play practice you all know which parts you are to be playing so let us begin. Everyone take your places!” Professor Breton called from the seats in the audience.
As the cast began to movie around Ginny was trying to find Ron in the mess of people on stage. “Ron what the hell is wrong with you?” she asked when she finally found him.
“You know exactly what is wrong with me.” I said in response.
“No I don’t so why don’t you tell me!” Ginny said beginning to lose her patience with the stubborn idiot.
“Hermione is what is wrong with me! You of all people should know that. You know how I feel about her.” I answer anger evident in my voice.
“Yes I do know that but she doesn’t so why did you storm out like that today?” Ginny asked him again.
“Because I couldn’t watch her kissing him, I know they hate each other but what happens if maybe she starts to like him or the other way around? I couldn’t bear that and you know it!” I very nearly shouted at her.
“Ron just relax Hermione would never go for him, not after all of the things that he’s done to her and us her friends. Not that Malfoy would ever think about getting with her because of his beliefs in the Pureblood way of life!” Ginny said trying to talk some sense into her idiot of a brother.
“If you like her that much why don’t you tell her maybe she would say yes to you and you guys could be a couple like Harry and I are.” she said trying to boost his confidence a little.
“No I’ve tried to ask her but then I get all nervous and I forget what I’m going to say and she walks away.” I told her lowering my voice to a whisper.
“Well if you don’t tell her then someone else…um…hi ‘Mione.” Ginny said with a slight blush appearing on her checks.
“Hey guys what’s up? Ron I’ve been looking for you everywhere. I’m sorry about what happened this afternoon I didn’t expect him to actually kiss me. I don’t know what came over me!” Hermione said upon seeing them.
“Hermione there’s something that I have to tell you and it is…um…well you see…” I stammered my tongue tripping over the words as my face turned a bright red color.
“Granger you are up let’s go!” Draco declared from near the curtain.
“Ron, can you hold that thought I will be back soon.” Hermione said leaving for the stage.
“I love you Hermione Granger.” I said under my breath. With that he prepared to go out on stage and give his lines.
They ended practice at the Ball scene with a few good jobs from Professor Breton. “We will be holding practice again in two days time. Remember each of you still needs to look at your lines. I understand you have a lot of homework but consider it homework from me!” Professor Breton said as they were filing out of her classroom.
As I was walking out of the classroom I saw Hermione heading in the direction of the Head’s Common Room. When I was clear of all the other students I ran in the same direction, reaching the Head’s Common Room I stood outside the door trying to catch my breath. That’s when I heard them Malfoy and Hermione where talking.
“Granger about today I just wanted to say I have no idea what came over me! I hope that I didn’t offend you to bad, not that it would matter to me!” Draco said to Hermione.
“Why what do know the great Draco Malfoy is actually apologizing to me Hermione Granger the Mudblood!” Hermione said her voice full of venom.
“I’m not apologizing for anything I was just, you know what never mind. Oh and by the way you were really good at practice tonight.” he said before walking away. It took all of Hermione’s strength not to say something horrible to him after the complement he had just given her.
“Well Malfoy actually does have manners, who knew?” Hermione said to the room in general.
After that I decided to knock on the door, though I knew that what I was about to do would probably mean nothing to her. She was already in love with the Ferret even if she didn’t know it yet.
“Who is it?” Hermione asked from the other side of the door.
“It’s me, Ron Weasley.” I said a little nervous.
“Hold on Ron I’ll be right there.” she said.
“What’s up Ron, what are you doing here so late? You should be in your Common Room.” she told me with the look of authority that I knew so well.
“Well I’m here to tell you that…well…you see…it’s um…” I stammered.
“What is it Ron I have a lot of homework to do then I have to go on rounds so could you please just say it already?!” she nearly yelled at me.
“Okay here it goes, I love you Hermione Granger! Would you go out with me?” I said my face turning a very bright shade of red. Before she could answer me Malfoy butted in.
“Granger can you come here for a second?” Malfoy said from the direction of the kitchenette.
“Sure be right there. Ron I’ll only be a moment.” she replied to both of us.
Temporarily in Hermione’s POV
“What do you want Malfoy?” I asked him.
“Granger..I mean..Hermione don’t go out with him. He’s not right for you.” Malfoy said in a whisper.
“Exactly how do you know that, hmmm?” I asked him in a whisper.
“I just do, I mean let me show you what I mean!” he said moving closer to me.
“What are you doing?” I asked.
“You’ll see!” he answered me.
The next thing I knew I was kissing him, his body in front of me pulling me to him. When I got close enough my arms snaked up around his neck. His arms snaked around my waist pulling me even closer. It felt like an electric current was running through my body pushing further than I had ever gone in my life. When we finally came up for breath he lent against me with our foreheads touching. “Malfoy…”I started but he cut me off.
“Call me Draco please.” he nearly pleaded.
“Draco what did we just do?” I asked him.
“I think we just passed the point of no return. Hermione, would you please be my girlfriend? I know that I’ve hurt you so much in the past and I know I can’t change that no matter how much I want to but please, I am in love with you and I have been since the first time I saw you on the Hogwarts Express in first year.” he said pleading with me, his voice nearly breaking with all the emotions he was feeling.
“I…well…yes Draco Malfoy I will be your girlfriend. I think…no I know I have been in love with you since our first year as well, though I never would have thought this possible because of my blood status.” I said in answer.
“Who cares about blood status. I said and did those things because of my father. That’s not who I am.” he answered me.
“What do I tell Ron though?” I asked my voice strained from talking in a whisper for so long.
“Tell him you’re seeing someone, and that just like in fourth year he waited too long to tell you how he felt.” Mal…Draco said.
Authors Note: Well, well it seems that Draco and Hermione have finally found the love they’ve been looking for.
What did you think of this chapter? I would love to know what you thought, so please leave a review. I hope you guys like it because I had a lot of fun writing this chapter, in fact I wrote this chapter while listening to Taylor Swift’s ‘Love Story’ which if you’ve heard the song is talking about Romeo and Juliet. Funny if you think about it considering that’s what this story is based on, oh well.
Thanks to everyone who has read and reviewed! Your reviews really do mean a lot to me as they encourage me to keep writing even when I can’t think of anything to write. I read your reviews and they give me ideas. So thank you very much and I hope that you all keep enjoy the rest of the story as much as you have in the past!
