When Hermione woke up the next day, all of her muscles were screaming at her. Despite that, she couldn’t stop smiling; she was happy. She knew that she probably shouldn’t have done what she did the night before, but she would deal with that later. She let out a pained stretch and noticed something; she was on the floor still, but she was alone. She looked around the room but Draco was nowhere in sight. She immediately started wondering if Draco had gone off to hide because he had been so mortified at what had happened. As the thoughts we running through her mind, the door to the common room opened and Draco came in with a plate.
He smiled when he saw her, “You’re awake.”
Draco sat down next to her and handed her the plate, “I thought you might be hungry.”
Hermione took the plate, “You brought me breakfast?”
Draco shrugged and nodded like it was no big deal and Hermione smiled, “You brought me breakfast in bed…kind of.”
Draco smiled, “I tried to wake you up so you could actually go to breakfast but you mumbled something that sounded a lot like ‘get lost’ and went back to sleep. I must have worn you out last night.”
Hermione blushed as thoughts of the previous night came back to her and Draco chuckled, “You are cute when you blush.”
Hermione set her plate on the floor, “So..this changes everything doesn’t it?”
“Yea, I think so.”
“One thing I have to know; and I want you to be honest with me. Was last night just another notch on your bedpost for you?”
Draco frowned, “I thought we went through that last night.”
“All we really did was agree that we were both tired of running. Now that what’s happened has happened, is that the end?”
“I don’t know.”
“We also agreed that us being an…us, was a pretty bad idea.”
“It is a bad idea, and there will be Hell to pay if the wrong people find out. But..”
“I don’t regret what happened; not for a second. You have been under my skin for I don’t even know how long, and now that I have you…I don’t think I can let you go. At least not yet.”
Hermione looked at Draco for a moment before speaking, “I feel the same way; I’ve never felt anything like the way I feel when I’m with you.”
“This can’t last forever.”
“I know, but I’ll take it for as long as I can.”
Draco smiled, “Me too.”
Draco’s smile then turned into a seductive smirk as he pulled the blanket away from Hermione, “We had better get started in making the most of what time we have.”
Hermione blushed again but shot him a look to mirror his own as she grabbed him and pulled him into a kiss and in a matter of seconds Draco’s clothes were in a pile next to the discarded blanket.
After what seemed like hours of laying around in front of the fire with Draco, Hermione decided that she needed to show her face to her friends or else they might start looking for her. After another forty-five minutes in the shower with Draco, Hermione finally left her dorm to go find her friends. Since it was so cold outside, everyone was in the Gryffindor common room. Hermione walked in and was greeted with curious inquiries.
“Where have you been Hermione?” Ron was sitting on the couch with Lavender, Harry and Ginny. They were each immersed in a book or magazine.
Hermione took a seat across from them, “Sorry; I was really into a new book I’m reading.”
Since Hermione had entered the room, Ginny had been watching her intently. Harry noticed something off also, “You look different Hermione.”
Hermione shrugged despite the huge grin on her face, “I have no idea what you are talking about Harry.”
Suddenly Ginny gasped and dropped her book on the floor, “Oh my God!” She jumped off the couch and pulled Hermione off the chair.
Harry looked worried, “What’s wrong Ginny?”
“Nothing….nothing at all. We are just going to have a little chat.”
Ginny pulled Hermione out of the room before anyone could protest. She made sure no one was within listening distance before she went off, “Oh my God Hermione, you FINALLY did it! It was after the dance last night wasn’t it; with Malfoy. Oh wow, you slept with Malfoy! What was it like? Is he really the Slytherin Sex God? I can’t believe you actually did it! Actually, I can. It was only a matter of time.”
Hermione let Ginny finish her tirade before she spoke, “Yes, it was after the dance with Malfoy. It was absolutely INCREDIBLE; and he IS the Slytherin Sex God. I can’t really believe I did it either; but boy am I glad that I did.”
Ginny squealed and hugged Hermione, “Oh I am so happy for you!”
“Well, I don’t know how long it’s going to last. I’m sure this goes without saying, but you can’t tell ANYONE about this. If the wrong people find out, very bad things may happen. I really am quite the idiot if you think about it. Malfoy and I can’t be together; so many people would be just livid if they knew on both sides and I don’t even want to think about what people would do. Parkinson already suspects something.”
“Of course I won’t say a word.”
“We are just going to play it out for as long as we can.”
“You deserve this Hermione. You deserve to be happy for as long as you can. Now tell me, where did it happen?”
Hermione gave Ginny a mischievous smile, “Which time?”
Ginny smiled, “Spill it!”
“Well, the first time was on the floor in front of the fire place last night. Once this morning in front of the fire place again, once in the shower, and once….on the dining table.” Hermione blushed for the third time that day.
Ginny looked scandalized, “Oh wow; four times in less than twenty four hours. That’s pretty amazing for your first time.”
“I don’t know what it is about him Ginny; he just makes me lose control.”
Ginny grinned and started to say something when the door to the common room opened and Ron stuck his head out, “What are you two doing out here?”
Hermione and Ginny exchanged sly smiles, “Nothing.”
“Well then come back inside.”
The girls went back inside and everyone stayed there until lunch.
After Hermione left, Blaise stopped by to see Draco.
“Where have you been all morning and what’s with Pansy? She’s been an utter bitch since she got back from the dance last night.”
“We had it out last night.”
“She thinks there’s something going on with Granger.”
“That could be bad.”
“Yea, especially now.”
Blaise studied Draco for a minute, “No way; you finally did it didn’t you. It’s about damn time! I knew you wouldn’t last much longer.”
“Stuff it Blaise.”
“Well how was it?”
“Unbelievable; I never would have guessed she was a virgin.”
“Oh man, I’m jealous.”
“Well, don’t be; it won’t last forever. Especially with Pansy knowing. I told her that she would severely regret it if she told anyone, but who knows how long we can hide this.”
“Then you better get it out of your system while you can.”
“Oh believe me; we are.”
Draco launched into a detailed recap of the night’s and morning’s events as the two friends shared a bottle of Fire Whisky the Blaise had brought.
I’m so sorry it took so long for me to update; I had a severe case of Writer’s Block!
