A seventeen-year old boy has to travel back in time to save his parents' relationship, to fix what went wrong in order to save his mother's life in the future. “I don’t know. I’d probably run to my death if it were the only way to get Malfoy to shut his mouth.” Hermione felt a sting in her chest, as though every word she’d just said were true and destined to happen.
Hayden learns to know how Hermione feels for Draco. She hates him. “Seriously, Hayden. I hate Malfoy.” “But … my … my mum once told me that every person deserves a chance to change,” Hayden mumbled." “She may be right, but I’m not your mother, Hayden. And she probably doesn’t know Draco Malfoy,” Hermione said nonchalantly. “He’ll never change.”
Hayden meets his female best friend's parents and was at once drawn to the beauty of her mother, Cho Chang. A boy with ear-length black hair, another Ravenclaw, shot Hayden a spiteful look from the table next to Cho. He flicked his wand under the table. Hovering behind Cho’s seat, blazing red letters formed into words:‘Sod off. She’s mine!’
Hayden is working on his plan to bring his parents together. "Did you notice her smile?” Hayden asked. If Draco truly cared nothing for Hermione, he would’ve left by now. Draco didn’t leave. “I haven’t noticed. Not even that ugly brown eye colour, not really my type.”
And there is again this nightmare Hayden has had since he was a little. But finally, he understands its meaning... He realised that he had once again dreamt that dread memory he wanted so desperately to exorcise from his mind. But it—he refused to call it anything so anthromorphic as ‘dream’ or ‘thought’ or ‘memory’ —evoked new emotions inside of him.
Hayden obviously enjoys every moment to mock his father...but in a playful way. "Whatare you doing here?” Draco snapped. “I was bored. I was looking for a potential victim, whose life I could make a living nightmare,” Hayden said. “So I thought of you. Is this what you do whenever you disappear? You go around stalking and ogling Hermione Granger from the distance?”
Hayden finally manages to lure Hermione and Draco to the library. “Granger,” Draco said, “First of all, I am not illiterate. Or, if you have not been given the goodness to know what that means: I know how to read. “Fine! You know what? I don’t need to do this!” Hermione said, slamming her book shut and crossing her arms over her chest. This is going to be a great time.
Hayden's greatest fear is going to be revealed. "Why can’t you just admit it?” “Yes, I domiss him,” she seethed angrily through her teeth. “What do you want to hear, Draco? That I’ve never loved you? That the reason why I agreed to marry you was because of our son? Tell me, what do you want to hear?”
Hayden talks to Naomi and realises that he doesn't really know her. “I’ve seen you, Hayden.”
“I believethat was what I just established.”
“No,” Naomi said, now turning at him and stopping in her track. “I’ve seen you. You’ve been flirting with my mum.”
Hayden has to learn to trust his instincts. “Why would my father betray the remaining Death Eaters to the Order? How come he changed sides?” he asked aloud, the question was more to himself than to Naomi. “Isn’t that a bit obvious?” asked Naomi, looking up at him, tears still glistening on her cheeks. “He did it for your mother.”
Hermione has a small conversation with Draco. “What do you want from me?” “Why is it that anything I say or do must always mean something? I ask a simple question, and you’re assuming I’m jealous. Why? Do you—deep down, I mean—think I fancy you, Granger? Before you answer, remember that you are Potter’s best friend and the ugly Weasel’s girlfriend.”
Draco has been running through Hermione's mind since their last encounter. Something else was in his eyes, Hermione was certain; they had reflected everything but hatred. She remembered that old Muggle saying her mum had taught her: The eyes are the windows to the soul. Did this apply to Draco Malfoy, too?
Hermione and Draco have to 'practice' for the Big Show. Though she only answered that she didn't mind at all, and that her friends minded it, was as clear as crystal. But in that moment, which stood for her like an Eternal Now, she didn't care what they'd think.
Hermione and Draco have to find out the truth about Hayden, no matter how they do it. She didn't need to lift her head to know who it was. She smelt his scent, that sufficed; she felt his warm breath near her ear; she heard his voice whispering, “Where are you going, Granger? The party has just begun.”
While Draco and Hermione come to an understanding, everything around them breaks apart. Her cognitive ability ceased when she launched herself at him, bringing their lips in a crushing beat together. For a moment she didn’t care if her cheeks were soaked with angry tears and that he was the reason for her crying.
Hayden finds out what has actually happened to Ron. “You didn’t plan all this, did you?” Hayden asked sceptically. “You only had one second to react, after all. You couldn’t know that Ron will burst into the classroom to come to Cho’s rescue!”
Draco-Hermione-Hayden, the Malfoy family. :) “WHAT?! I—I’ll be pregnant beginning of November!” She spun around at Draco, poking his chest. “You’re not coming near me for the next few months, you hear me?”
