"Hermione, who are you going with?" Ron asked pulling me out of my thoughts.
"No ones asked me yet Ron we only found out about the ball yesterday, give it sometime."
"Uh..right." He looked down and continued with his work.
"So Harry who are you going to ask?" I ask him while he stares into space.
"Uhm..I..uh haven't really thought about to be honest Hermione."
"I see you lloking at Cho Chang alot, what about her?" He suddenly turned to look at me when I said her name.
"Why has she said something?" He asked leaning over the table a little.
"Uh..no I was just saying because I see you looking at her."
"Oh..right." He said looking a bit disappointed. "Ron, do you wanna come down to Hagrids with me?" Harry asked.
"What about Hermione?" He asked looking between Harry and I.
"No you two go ahead I really want to get this finished I'll catch up with you two later."
"Are you sure we could wait for you."
"No, no go on i'm fine."
They both said goodbye and made there way out of the library. Poor Harry he must really like her to act like that when her named gets mentioned. I laugh to myself and continue with my work.
"Laughing at yourself Granger, really?" I looked up to see Malfoy leaning against a book shelf infront of me.
"I didn't ask for you to say anything Malfoy and why are you standing watching me anyway it's creepy." I say shivering at the same time.
"You wish Granger I just happened to be walking in this direaction when I saw you laughing to yourself, so what's so funny?"
"Nothing at all to do with you Malfoy now please leave me in peace I want this finished tonight." He walked over and sat down infront of me and just looked at me.
"Oh nothing. I was just wondering if anyone had asked you to the yule ball yet?"
"Are you asking me Malfoy?" I asked raising my eyebrows up at him.
"Again Granger you wish, I was a simple question."
"Well if you must know, no one has asked me yet."
"Having doubts Granger, do you think anyone will actually ask you?"
"Don't you have some first year to go bully or something?"
"Don't change the subject Granger."
"Just go away alright."
"Okay i'm going, see you later." He said winking at me and walking away.
Okay Granger calm down, calm down! He only asked you to go to the ball with him it's not like he asked you to marry him. You will not over react about this you will remain calm and if anyone asks who you are going with you will simply tell them your going with..Viktor Krum. Yes your going with Krum oh Merlin I can't believe he asked me...me! Out of all the girls here he asked me.
I sighed to myself and tried to hide the smile that was forming on my face.
"What's got you so happy?" Ron asked with a frown on his face.
"Nothing Ron, what's wrong with you?"
"Nothing." He half mumbled. I frowned at him and looked at Harry who just shrugged.
"Harry what are we gonna do the ball is in a few days and we still don't have dates."
"Harry I thought you were going to ask Cho Chang?"
"I did she's going with Cedric."
"Oh i'm sorry Harry."
"No it's fine really i'm just gald she has someone." I smiled at him with pity in my eyes.
"It's bad enough that Harry and I don't have dates but I thought you would at least have a date Hermione." I turned and looked at Ron a little taking back.
"Actually Ron someone has asked me, I do have a date."
"Who asked you then?"
"You know what you'll just have to wait and see I really don't want to talk to you when your like this. I'll see you both later. I'm going back to bed." I got up and ran up the stairs. I can't believe Ron why was he being such a jerk.
"Goodnight Hermione, thank you for the most amazing evening of my life." Viktor said to me as he kissed my hand and started to walk backwards smiling at me the whole time. I couldn't help the blush that spread across my face as he turned the corner. I smiled to myself and spun around in a circle.
"Really a kiss on the hand that's it? That's all he gave you after you spent the whole night listening to him talk about quidditch." I looked around to see Malfoy leaning against the wall still in his dress robes and smirking at me.
"What are you doing here Malfoy? Shouldn't you be will Pansy, and how do you know what Viktor and I where talking about?"
"Taking a walk, no I shouldn't be with her i've been trying to get away from her the whole night and I just happened to hear you both every now and then."
"Well I had an amazing night even though I wasn't that interested in the quidditch talk but it was still great."
"Yeah but back to the point about him only kissing your hand."
"So he is a gentlemen."
"Yeah right maybe he just didn't want to kiss you, maybe he doesn't really like you that much."
"Just because he didn't stick his tougue down my throat doesn't mean he doesn't like me, you don't know anything alright. So just go."
"What if I don't want to."
"I don't care what you want, look i'm tired, my feet hurt and I just want to go to bed alright."
"Did I tell you that you look beautiful tonight?" I frowned at him and crossed my arms over my chest.
"Alright Malfoy what are you up to?"
"I'm paying you a compliment Granger, i'm up to nothing." He said as he walked closer to me.
"Well thank you but I really am tired."
"That's fine but before you go theres something I need to do. See I was thinking a few nights ago that for the past year three it has been you who has kissed me and well now I think it's my turn."
"Wha..." I was cut off when he quickly cupped both my checks and pulled me into a passionate kiss. What is he doing? Why is he doing this? Did he have a point that for three years I kissed him but then I never asked myself why I had done it. I would tell him that it was because I was greatful and well maybe last year I felt sorry for punching him but i've never thought it was for anyother reason.
He pulled away and rested his forehead on mine while looking me in the eye. "That the has to be the second best kiss we've had yet." He said while I tried to think clearly.
"Second?" I breathed out.
"Yes second, i'll tell you why some time, but for now go sleep. I'll see you later."
"Bye." I whispered as he walked away from me.
Could it be that I had fallen for Malfoy and I hadn't even relised it, until now? No that can't be right there is no way. I just got caught in the moment that is all. Or at least that is waht i'm going to keep telling myself.
