You know i wasn't exactly shocked when I found out I was a witch, neither were my parents for that matter they said they always new i was special. Coming to Hogwarts on the other hand will take some getting used to I think, but at least I have my new friends Harry and Ronald to help along the way. I felt sorry for Harry most I mean he like myself came from the muggle world but i've know I was a witch for a few years now Harry only found out at the begining of this year, must have been a really huge shock. This year so far anyway has been more than I could have ever imagined it's been great until now anyway when Harry, Ron and I got caught by Malfoy (a stupid boy who thinks he is better than everyone else especially me) he told on us for visiting Hagrid after hours and now we have dentetion, the only good thing about it is that Malfoy's plan backfired and he to has dentention tonight with us. That will show him.
"Alright you lot follow me." Hagrid said taking the lead and leading us into the forbidden forest. "Now you all know what your looking for, remember if you find it come and find me at once....now Ron, Harry you two come with me, Hermione you go with Malfoy."
I nod my head once and look at Malfoy who doesn't seem very happy about it.
"Fine but I get the dog." Malfoy said pointing at Fang.
"Fine take him with you, but just so you know he's a bloody coward."
With that Malfoy turned and started walking in the oppisite direction and i had to run to catch up with him, he looked over his shoulder and sneered at me. I rolled my eyes at him and kept walking, Fang at my side.
"Can't believe we have to do this, this is the bloody schools job not ours, so much for 'it's forbidden for anyone to go into the forbidden forest' ha!"
"Do you every stop moaning Malfoy." As soon as i had finished my sentence he turned and looked at me i could practically see the hate in his eyes.
"It's your fault anyway Mudblood."
"My fault how is it my fault?"
"You and your little boyfriends were out when you shouldn't have been that's how it's your fault."
"Oh Malfoy you are so full of it you know that, you were the one who followed us and told on us, so if anyone is to blame it's you."
"Oh yeah good one." I pushed past him and continued walking, why did Hagrid pair me with him, he must have known we'd fight with eachother, well him being Malfoy he would have fought with all of us no doubt. I could hear him starting to catch up with me so I quickened my pace again when I felt a hand grab hold of my arm.
"Granger will you slow down, do you want us to get lost, do you even know were your going?"
"Look I don't know about you but I just want to get this over and done with so I won't have to be stuck in these woods with you anymore okay." I half yelled at him.
He stood at stared at me for a moment then looked away and continued walking on. I stood there shocked for a second then began following him again he didn't even say anything no insult, nothing.
"Cat got you tougue Malfoy? You didn't say anything there I was expecting at least an insult or something, you feeling alright."
"Shut up, mudblood."
"No I see your okay."
"Can we just get this done."
We continued on and on and we still hadn't found any unicorn blood or the poor thing itself. Suddenly something caught my eye, I saw a flicker of what looked like white hair, i turned and looked at Malfoy.
"What?" He asked.
"Didn't you see that?"
"Never mind it was proberly nothing."
"Concentrate Granger these a reason the woods a re forbidden, your most likely imaginening things."
I looked at him for a second then started to walk away, stupid Malfoy I know I saw something." Just then I was pused down to the ground by something hard I let out a yelp holding onto my chest as it hurt to much. I looked up and there was a see a centaur standing over me. Out of no where i saw a bright light hit the centaur and it went running away. I lay still on the ground holding my chest almost crying with the pain, when I looked up and Malfoy had his hand streched out for me to take, I continued to stare at him when he said. "Come on take my hand it's okay the thing is gone now." I took his and he pulled me to my feet holding onto my arms.
"Are you okay?" He asked and I frowned at him.
"No i'm not my chest hurts." I said in a whisper.
"Doesn't surprise me you just got bloody kicked by that centaur." He still had hold of my arms when a tear escaped and ran down my cheek, he quickly caught it and wiped it away, I stared at him completely shocked that he had just done that.
"Your going to be fine, come one we have to get back." He dropped both of his hands and started to walk away.
"Wait Malfoy, please it hurts when I walk." I said not beliefing I had said please to him. He stopped and turned back towards me, walking back, he took my arm and put it over his shoulder and putting his arm around my waist.
"Come on I want to get back a some point tonight."
After about half an hour we finally found Hagrid and the boys.
"Bloody hell Hermione what happened to you, did you do this Malfoy?" Ron yelled.
"Of course not Weasley if I did why would I be helping to bring her here."
"He didn't do anything Ron I was kicked by a centaur."
"Oh goodness, come on Hermione let's get you back you the castle and to the hospital wing, first Harry now you." Hagrid picked me up and carried me bridal style.
"What do you mean what happened to Harry."
"I'm fine Hermione really it was nothing."
"Yeah right." Ron added as we all headed back to the castle.
Madam Pomfrey looked over me but said there was nothing wrong no broken bones just a few bruises, so she said I could go. I headed out of the door when I saw Malfoy leanign against the wall.
"What are you doing here Malfoy, you knwo if you get caught you going to get another dentention right?"
"Pfft, like I care."
"Okay." I started to walk past him when he caught hold of my arm again and he turned me to look at him.
"I just came to see that you were alright."
"I....uh I'm fine thanks just a few bruises that's all."
"Okay good. Well see you Granger." He urned away from me and started walking.
"Malfoy....wait." I ran over to him and wrappedn my arms around his waist. I could feel him tense up when i touched him but after a few seconds he seemed to relax and awkwardly returned my hug. I pulled away a little and looked up into his eyes and smiled, he just stared at me but I leaned in and gave him a quick kiss on his lips, I pulled away completely this time to see his eyes go extremely wide and his cheeks a little red.
I gave him an awkward smile and started to walk away leaving him there alone. I can't believe i just done that not only did i hug Malfoy but i also kissed him.
