The girls both screemed as the door slammed against the wall.
"You two vile bitches are in deep shit" he growled out before slamming the door closed behind him.
Rita was the first to just to her feet. She glared at Draco as he glared at both of them.
"What makes you think you can barge into my office and insult me that way young man, I should have you arrested" she yelled which only angered him further.
"You could, but I think you're going to want to hear what i'm going to say to you, now sit down" he said backing his words with all the fury he felt coursing through him.
Rita huffed before she complied. Draco crossed his arms as he leveled a menacing look at the woman.
"I'm here to tell you that you better write up a new article recanting your last about Hermione and that worthless sack of shit Krum" he said.
"And why would we do that, that little chit has always been out to play the victim, now because of her one of the worlds best quidditch players is dead" said Lavender tearfully. Draco glared at her shutting up her whimpers.
"First of all, you will refrain from insulting Hermione in my presence and that vile piece of shit Krum was as worthless a quidditch player as he was a human being, i'm glad he's dead" he said.
"Hm, i'm sure my readers would love to know which role you've played in this Mr. Malfoy" said Rita pulling out her quil.
He smirked his infamous smirk, "Fine i'll tell you and then i'll make sure ever word of what i say is printed correctly, do you understand me, if not i'll have Harry come down here because i know he's fuming over what was written" he said.
Rita's face paled a degree at the mention of Harry and she nodded curtly. He sat down across from her and folded his arms across his chest.
"Alright Mr. Malfoy, can you tell me what you're roll in the death of Victor Krum was?" she asked professionally.
"My role was that of rescuer to Hermione" he started.
Two hours later he left Rita's office feeling smug. The looks on their faces was almost enough to appease his anger. But he knew that they would twist the story and he was ready for it. Taking a deep breath to calm himself he apparated to Hermione's apartment. He saw her sitting in the kitchen with a box sitting in front of her. Frowning he walked over and sat across from her.
"Hermione, are you alright?" he asked. She looked up at him and he could see the weariness in her face.
"I'm just tired, i'm tired of trying to convince people that i'm not the bad guy" she said.
"Well hopefully they're going to see the truth about you soon, i'll make sure of it" he said taking her hand into his.
She smiled even though it didn't reach her eyes. She really couldn't believe that the boy who had teased her so mercilessly was the one who was helping her through the roughest part of her life so far. She felt her heart skip a beat as he smiled at her and squeezed her hand and she knew without a doubt that she was falling in love with him. She'd always heard that the line between love and hate was thin and she was just starting to realize how thin it was. She didn't know what came over her but she suddenly stood and moved closer to him.
Draco's heart started beating furiously against his chest as Hermione approached him. She stopped when she was only a breath away from him and brushed his bangs back from his face. Then she leaned down and closed the distance between them with a gentle kiss. He cupped her face in his hands lightly as their lips danced together and all to quickly it was over. He watched her face turn red as her eyes widened.
"I'm sorry" she said before she ran back to her room. He sat for a moment stunned before he heard her door slam. He jumped up and ran up to her room knocking on the door.
"Hermione open up, please" he said softly. He heard her move around her room for a minute before the door opened slowly.
"I'm sorry i kissed you, i don't know what..." he cut her off with a kiss that told her just how much he felt about her. She was shocked for a moment before her eyes fluttered closed and she kissed him back. Wrapping her arms around his neck she pulled herself closer to him as his arms went around her waist pulling her flush against his body. After a long moment they both pulled back breathless.
"So i guess this means i can ask you out now right?" asked Draco and she laughed before nodding.
"Good, then would you like to go out with me tomorrow night?" he asked. She blushed before she nodded, "I'd like that very much" she said.
They spent the rest of the day relaxing on the couch and watching movies before Draco headed home.
Hermione headed up to bed feeling lighter, almost as if a weight she hadn't realized she'd been carrying had been lifted from her shoulders. After changing she fell into bed with a smile on her face and she fell into the first peaceful sleep she'd gotten in a long time.
