I brushed fallen tears away from my eyes and walked on, through the lonely halls. This year was supposed to be memorable. Supposed to be the time of my life. The memories were supposed to be the strongest ones, the ones that stuck with me as our lives moved on, away, farther apart, our future.
My step's echo was muffled and depressed. I didn't know where I was going, I just let my feet take me where ever it pleases. I was lost, lost and alone.
This isn't what Seventh year was supposed to be like. All my life I had dreamed of ruling the school, being as intellegent and knowledged as possible in my final year. All my life I dreamed of a normal year. A normal final year to be with friends. And loved ones.
Closing my eyes I focused on my steady breathing as my feet guilded me. As I slowly opened my eyes, I felt a wave of regret for letting my feet take me wherever. Because What I saw made me want to go back, and bury myself in my pile of books.
I saw them. Draco. and Pansy. My heart wrenched.
I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you.
Holding hands. They were holding hands. Memories flooded back to me and I couldn;t take it anymore. They looked so much like me and Draco used to. The scene infront of me kept the memories I'd tried so hard to keep away flooding back, fast and hard. I turned.
My single tear had others, riding down my cheeks.
"Draco" I sighed, knowing he can't hear me. I watched them. Each second my heart felt like it would burst even more, eventually giving out and exploding with all of the pain that it held. I thought back to what me and Draco had, to the love we once shared.
"I love you Draco." I said running my hands through his soft blonde hair. I've never loved anyone more then I loved Draco.
We were in the Astronomy tower, in 6th year. I stared into those gray orbs, glittery like the stars shining above us.
"I love you too" He replied kissing my lips softly. He made me feel alive. It was before the war broke out. Our relationship was secret. He had told me someday we would have to end it, For my safety, and his. I lay against his chest, savoring the time we had together, as if one of use would suddenly be gone the next day.
"Hermione, remember, whatever happens, whatever I will have to do, I will always love you." I nodded into his chest. I didn't know what he means by "whatever he has to do" but I agreed. I loved him too much to lose him.
I cuddled deeper into his warm chest as his arm wrapped protectively and lovingly around my waist.
We lay there, in our warm embrace, and slowly we drifted off to sleep, each dreaming of the other.
END OF FLASHBACK
Suddenly he turned. Familiar gray steel eyes caught up in my warm cinnamon ones. I snapped out of memory lane. Our gaze still held the intensity it used to, when he loved me.
Did he forget everything we had? Was I just another stranger now?
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.
My teary eyes glistened again, and the tears that rimmed it threated to fall down again. The pain was just to great to forget everything we had, but I willed myself to forget the past. I can't keep living in the past, I can't keep living in the life I used to have. It felt like just yesterday.
You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days
It felt like just yesterday, that we were together, that he loved me. Hell, I still loved him. He held the gaze. What did this mean?
I loved him. I still love him. I always had. More tears dripped down my face. For the past weeks since we've broken up, I didn't feel like i was living.
Draco was like the other half of me. Without him I was like, a bird without wings, a wizard without a wand. Helpless.
I will always love him. And since he's happy. I can deal. I love Draco. I still do.
He may have forgotten me, forgotten our love, But I will never forget what we had.
Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."
I Love You I mouthed, not caring that he will laugh at me later, that he'll tell everyone. I don't care. Because that is the truth. I love him. He needed to know that I still love him. Breaking the gaze, I turned my head tears cascading down my cheeks, dripping.
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?
Maybe one day he will realize. Realize that he still means the world to me. Realize that every night, everyday, I'll dream. I'll dream about him. About our love. And about what used to be. What we used to have that I still dream about and wish so much to gain back, and make into reality again.
His face held shock for a moment, then softened. My face burned even though it felt like a boulder was lifted off my shoulder when I told him that I still love him.
I realized I had waited so long to let him know that I still love him because I couldn't face it. I couldn't face the pain that would take over me when he wouldn't repeat it back to me. I couldn't face the facts. That it was over. That our love was gone. That he had moved on, and I was just history, just an obstacle he had to go through.
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,"
He leaned in to tell Pansy something, and I was pretty sure he would be laughing at me.
I was flabbergasted when Pansy's face twisted into pain, then anger. Her contorted face reflected her broken heart and her emotions leaked through as sobs started to rack her thin figure. She made a sudden turn and collapsed as she ran as hard as she could, away.
My thoughts and pity for her was broken suddenly by the thought of the one person that was always on my mind.
Draco. He was walking to me. Waves of excitement, dread and apprehension took over my body causing shivers to rack my entire body.
As he neared, I figited wondering what he had to say. My breathing being faster but softer. His footsteps echoed through the hall as he was just a few steps away from me.
His fragrance of pine and a distant mint washed over me as he stood infront of me. Tall, pale and his blonde hair as bright and striking as always.
"You still love me?" Those words were whispered. Soft, begging and gentle. Like a familiar soothing melody. You still love me? The gentleness rang through my eardrums coursing throughout my whole body.
"I always have." I breathed back.
His eyes softened. I missed those eyes. Comforting, Loving. I missed him. Those silver eyes I knew so well, and love.
"I'm sorry" Two words. The two words to break me, yet also the two words that healed me.
"I love you. I'll never hurt you again. I'm so, so sorry" He whispered softly, tears of his own brimming those eyes I love so much.
I didn't need to say anything else.
I reached out and stroked his cheek. Soft, wet with the tracks from his tears. Leaning in, I closed the space between us pressing into his warm lips that I've gotten so used to always being there, and now I realize how much he means to me, what I've been taken for granted. Our lips molded perfectly, our kiss was soft, and understanding, full of love, and forgiveness. Like a first kiss.
He wrapped his arms around my waist pulling me closer gently. We were whole again. We were one. I finally realized this is what he meant by "whatever he has to do" He broke up with me to protect me, until the war was over. I realized that once and for all.
We were together, and I could have stayed like this forever.
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead
But this time, I realized, that this was going to last. Because real love stories, NEVER have endings. Just like our love. Found, Lost, and found again. A roller coaster of a journey. our Love. Who said love was easy?
I felt alive again. One word frees us all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.
I was in love again.
