Chapter 2: The Common Room
Hermione went back in the compartment and sat next to Ginny. Harry and Ron were stuffing their faces with chocolate frogs and comparing their collector's cards.
'So 'Mione, who do you have your eye on this year?' asked a very curious Ginny.
Hermione didn't want to tell her Harry, because Ginny has liked Harry ever since her first year. She had to lie.
'Uhh, no one this year Gin...are you still going to go for Harry?'
Ginny blushed a deep red.
Hermione thought to herself...'I'll take that as a yes'
Hermione wasn't mad at Ginny for liking Harry, because Ginny didn't know Hermione's feelings for him, and Hermione knew that she had a higher chance on scoring Harry than Ginny did. So she thought.
Hermione was starting to fall asleep when Malfoy pushed his way through their compartment.
'What do you want Malfoy' sneered Ron
'I need Granger...official Head Boy and Head Girl business.'
'What?! You're head boy!' yelled Harry
Draco smirked and grabbed Hermione and pulled her out of the room and led her to a compartment, with golden letters on the door. it read: Head Boy & Head Girl. They walked inside and Hermione was in heaven. It had 2 cozy couches, a 6 foot high bookshelf, and one envelope on the table. One was addressed to Mr Malfoy and Miss Granger.
Dear Mr. Malfoy and Miss. Granger
Congratulations on making the heads of the school. Below are a few rules for you two to follow. I know you two don't get along so well, and thats why I chose you two to be the heads. Though you are in different houses, I expect you two to set examples to the younger years and get along. We haven't have a Grfyindor and a Slytherin be heads in ages. Enjoy.
1. Must plan Hogwarts annual ball, along with the prefects.
2. Must accompany eachother to the ball. (This means you (both have to go together)
3. Must follow all jobs.
4. Must keep their marks above an A- or will be replaced.
5. MUST GET ALONG
Hermione sat there in shock as Draco read them aloud.
'I am not going to the ball with you!' Exclaimed Hermione
Draco smirked. 'Rules are rules Granger'
Hermione ignored his comment and stuffed her face in a book until they arrived at Hogwarts for the feast.
When they entered the Great Hall, as few changes have been made. The Slytherin table was now next to the Grfyindor table, and there were about three times as many candles in the air as before. When Hermione sat down next to Ginny and across from Harry, she looked over at the Slytherin table, where Pansy Parkinson was throwing herself all over Draco.
'Look at that tramp guys' Scuffed Hermione pointing at Pansy.
'Draco's been with like every girl at his table, I'm surprised he keeps saying no to Pansy' stated Harry.
Hermione continued on talking with Ginny, when she realized a pair of eyes on her. She looked over and Harry was starring at her. Once she noticed him, Harry cleared his throat and started talking to Ron. This made Hermione blush. She felt someone rubbing her leg. She casually looked down under the table and noticed it was Harry's foot rubbing against her leg. She winked at him and let him continue rubbing. She kept giggling with Ginny.
'So Harry, have your eye on anyone this year' asked Ron.
'Urm, well, don't tell anyone, but I like Hermione' Harry blurted
Ron let out a big grin.
'What?' asked Harry
'She likes you too man'
Harry grinned and looked at her, who was looking a him. They both smiled at each other.
Dumbledore stood up after the sorting ceremony.
'A few words before the feast' He continued. 'This years Head Boy and Girl is Mr. Draco Malfoy from Slytherin, and Miss. Hermione Granger from Grfyindor.' The Great Hall exploded in applause. 'Also, as some of you may know, the Dark Forest is strictly forbidden' There was about 5 minutes of silence, when Dumbledore chuckled 'Let the feast begin, oh and Mr Malfoy and Miss Granger, I would like to see you too after the feast' And with a snap of Dumbledore's fingers the tables were piled with food
'Oh thank god' Exclaimed Ron stuffing his face with chicken legs.
After the feast, Hermione noticed Draco get up and start walking to Dumbledore. She decided to do the same.
They followed Dumbledore down a hallway, and they stopped in front of a portrait.
'Password please' It asked
'Lemon drops' Dumbledore whispered
Draco sighed. 'Headmaster...does our password have to be your favorite candy?'
They stepped inside. Hermione was taken. There was a roaring 10 foot by 10 foot fireplace, one large couch, and a bookshelf that went to the ceiling. Hermione was definitely in heaven.
'I will leave you two to decorate how you would like' Dumbledore peeped. And with that Dumbledore stepped out of the portrait door whistling.
'Well Malfoy, lets get one thing straight...I get the bathroom first' She smirked and ran to the bathroom.
Once she opened the door she stopped dead in the doorway. The bathroom was decorated in the colors of green, silver, red, and gold. There was two large sinks with two large mirrors. Also, there was a pool sized bathtub/hot tub, and a large shower. Hermione walked over to her mirror. She knew it was hers, because the outline was red and gold. She opened it and found a cabinet full of make-up and her personal hygiene things. Ginny would definitely be jealous. Hermione was sure Narcissa Malfoy didn't even own this much make-up. Then she moved over to Draco's mirror and opened it up. It made her laugh. There was about 20 bottles of gel, 10 bottles of shaving cream, his toothbrush and toothpaste. Her eyes lurked over to a box on the highest shelf. She stood on her ti pee toes and grabbed it. She smirked when she saw what was in it. Condoms.
'Like Malfoy will ever get another girl' She said to herself quietly.
'Honestly Granger, you shouldn't be going through my things' Smirked Draco. He walked over to Hermione and lifted an eyebrow. 'You don't want me going through your things now do we' He stroked her cheek then walked off.
Hermione scoffed at him. Once he left the bathroom, she locked it and undressed herself, and stepped into the shower. She kept thinking about Harry. Oh, how she just wanted to hold him and kiss him. Hermione felt herself get weak at the knees, and decided it was time to get out of the shower. She wrapped a fuzzy red towel around herself and blew dry her hair. She heard the door knob rattle. Apparently it was Draco trying to get in. She unlocked it, and went back to drying her hair. She noticed Draco checking her out and tried to ignore it. She did think that Malfoy was hot this year. He developed a hot body from Qudditch, and his eyes..oh his eyes, you could get lost in them. His sexy steel blue eyes. What was she thinking. She was in love with Harry. She left the room and headed towards her room. She hadn't seen it yet, and she was in high approval when she saw it. Inside it, there was a king sized 4 poster bed. Then there was a desk, night table, lamp, and a vanity filled with more make-up. She noticed another door on the other side of the room. She walked over to it. It was a walk-in closet filled with all her new clothes. Hermione was definitely going to have an awesome year.
