It was a sunny Saturday morning. Ginny woke Hermione up, telling her that she received a letter.
Can you please meet me at 3 p.m. at the Leaky Cauldron ?
Draco Malfoy '
Hermione couldn't help, her heart was beating so fast !
She replied with ony two words :
' Sure .
It was 10 a.m. . Hermione went downstairs, to have breakfast.
While they were eating, she told them.
"I'm meeting Draco today. "
" Really? Um... Why?" Harry asked.
"Why would you meet him? " asked Ron.
So many things he didn't know... Poor boy. She even considered telling Ginny about her crush on Draco , but she was still working on that part. She didn't know how to tell her. Suddently, she felt glad she had a friend like Harry.
"I have no idea why . I received an owl this morning. Leaky Cauldron, 3 p.m. "
There were a few moments of silence. After all, Ron spoke :
"You know, if you want us to, we c... "
"I don't want YOU to come with me ! I can deal with it, thanks." she said, as she stood up and went to her bedroom to get prepared.
" She'd better take it easy, 7 years of shouting have been enough. " Ron told Harry.
"Don't make me punch you in the face, Ron! " screamed Hermione.
She arrived in her bedroom, lying on the bed and think that she should buy a flat. Ginny entered the room .
"So.. That is all? You have no idea why he wants you to meet him? "
"No. But I'll better go wash my hair and get prepared. " Hermione replied.
Ginny looked confused and Hermione walked into the bathroom.
After she came out, Ginny said :
"What's with all this stuff? Is it a date?"
" Nooo ! Of course not !" she wished he could have said it was.
But maybe it is!!!
Noo!!! That's not posible. You are a filthy mudblood, remember?
But last time I talked to him..
He wasn't really nice
Maybe because I wasn't
All day long, thoughts like these ones came and left Hermoine's head. But maybe it was a little bit obvious...
"You like him." Ginny said.
" Um...Yeah, of course I do ! He seems like.. Um.... He seems like we could be friends"
Ginny gave her a i- know- what - you - really - want - and - you - can - not- fool- me look, smiling.
Hermione gave up.
"Okay.. Okay. Harry told you ? "
"No" Ginny said with a calm voice.
"You are a Legilimens? " Hermione tried.
"No. " Ginny denied.
"You visited Trelawney!!! "
They both started to laugh.
"How did you find out, then ? "
"I am smart, Hermione, it is obvious. " Ginny said, smiling.
'Oh no.. Do you think Ron will find out, too ? Will you tell him? "
" No! Of course not! "Ginny said , hugging Hermione .
She wasn't sure why he didn't want him to know. She felt guilty and she didn't want their friendship to break.
At 2: 50 , she went downstairs. She was going to arrive at the Leaky Cauldron with the Floo Network.
Draco was sitting at a table, when he saw Hermione came in. She looked beautiful, he had to admit. He waved to her, and when she saw him, she started to walk towards him.
"Hello! "Draco said .
"Hi, Draco! "she decided to call him ' Draco'.
At that moment, Draco thought he should start calling her ' Hermione' , too.
"So why are we here?" Hermione asked him .
" Um... I need to talk to you. "
" Okay. Tell me what this is all about. "
She said that in a weird voice... Like they were flirting. Ohh, no, they weren't .
"It's about Susan. "
"How close are you two ?" he asked her.
"Um.. Not very. Look, you should talk to Hannah. "
"I won't . Hannah will never help me. "
"If you say so.. " Hermione added. "How can I help you then? "
" Look, Hermione , Susan trusts you and likes you. I need you to ask her something ?"
" Are you using me ?! " Hermione yelled.
" No. I am asking you to do something. " Draco said. He seemed calm, but he was really nervous.
"What do you want me to ask her? "
" I want to marry her." ( did he really want that..? No. He didn't. But this was the oficial version) ." I need to know if she wants too. "
" Soo? Be brave and propose to her! " Hermione said, as if she was accusing him.
"I can't. "
"This has nothing to do with you. Just do it, okay? " Draco said, tired of replying to her questions.
Hermione was going to explode.
"So you want to use me , but you don't even want to tell me why?! "
"Hermione, I - "
"Don't ever talk to me again. "
She walked out of the Leaky Cauldron, leaving Draco feeling guilty.
There were two parts of him fighting inside him now...
What do you feel guilty for ?
I don't like making people suffer.
But still, you are doing a lot of bad things
I have no choice
Well..... Whatever. She's only a mudblood...
Are you sure that is all she is for you, mate ?
