|1||Whispers and Secrets
Ronald Weasley was as pale as a ghost. Correction, he was paler. If you compared his white skin to Nearly Headless Nick, Nick would look like a beach volleyball player who spent all day in the sun.
This battled the night Bellatrix LeStrange performed the cruciatus curse on her for the most pain she had ever experienced.
|3||Some People Change
Lavender Brown was absolutely the last person he desired to see at that moment, or any moment for that matter. He would rather face Voldemort once again than deal with her.
Ron jerked his head up, the wind knocked out of his chest. The sound of her name made his heart speed up and begin to race.
Ron gasped. Lavender's mouth dropped open.
Ron and Lavender had absolutely no idea what to believe after what they had just witnessed.
"Ron?" the voice questioned.
"There something you need to know," George said slowly.
"Wait..." Ron yelled, looking his father straight in the eyes, "You don't want me to marry her?!"
|11||Let the Games Begin
|12||To kiss or not to kiss
She tilted her head to the other side, "You can stay as long as you want. Lavender won't be home for hours."
|13||Pushing Me to the Edge
Hermione's anger boiled inside her, 'He's gonna wish he was facing Voldemort when I get through with him!' she thought.
They were waiting for the waitress when Hermione saw something that made her stomach drop.
The news that she, Hermione Granger, was dating Draco Malfoy was like saying Bellatrix LeStrange had turned in to a nun.
|17||Keeping Options Open
"Ron," Harry began, slowly, "I know this isn't what you planned,"
|18||I want the Truth
"Tell me the truth, or you are! Why are you pretending to be dating Draco! I know that wasn't real! I know you!"
|19||You Break It, You Buy It
"Hermione, I don't know how to tell you this..."
|20||Hagrid's Dinner Party Part 1
Everyone turned to face Cho and they all saw that her focus was intent on Lavender's bump and the hand that clutched Ron's.
|21||Hagrid's Dinner Party Part 2
"Gin," Harry sighed slowly, "don't you think you're blowing this just a little out of proportion? I mean, I never would've believed she'd be with Malfoy either, but I've known her for a long time, and she's never lied to me before. I think we should believe her."
|22||Hagrid's Dinner Party Part 3
"Stay...with...me!" she chanted as she pumped his heart, which was starting to falter.
|23||Consciense vs. Subconscience
Narcissa widened her eyes in shock and took a step away.
|24||Kicking Around Ideas
|25||Baby, I must confess...
"Like I'd ever fall for you!" She hissed, coming up within a couple inches of him.
"You're...you! And she's....her!"
|27||The End of an Era
"That's my baby with a wedding dress in her hand. It seems like yesterday she was gripping her first bottle." Molly brushed back a tear that had escaped her eyelashes.
|28||The Wedding, Part 1
Vicar Hollis smiled, "Who gives this woman to this man in holy matrimony?"
|29||The Wedding, Part 2
He got to his feet, "Do you not see that there is no winner here? In the end, the truth will come out, then you'll lose everything. We all will."
|31||Raising the Bar
"I'm aware that last time you were hear you requested to know the gender of the baby. Would you still like to know or would you like it best kept a surprise?"
"What makes you think I want something?"
|33||True Feelings Come Out
"Stop playing with us, Malfoy. You don't need to pretend you actually care about her." Ron growled.
|34||An Event of Malfoy Proportions
"You look gorgeous," Draco whispered, appearing suddenly behind her. He kissed her gently.
|35||Time Is Running Out
|36||Start of Something New
Harry wondered whether Draco's egotistical bigheadedness had taken up the space of his brain that could think logically.
|37||Up For Discussion
"I'm not running from anything!" Hermione screamed.
|38||Start of Something New
"You want Malfoy though and Hermione's got him. Apparently they're engaged. How is this going according to plan?"
|39||The Beginning of the End
"You always have an ulterior motive and last I checked we weren't buddy buddy in Hogwarts."
|40||Plots and Paternity
"I'm warning you, Zabini!" Pansy shrieked at a frightened looking Blaise. "If you don't tell me where he is now, I will hurt you. You know ruddy we what Im capable of."
|41||Crash and Burn
Those were the last words he would speak.
For all she knew, he could be leading them all to their deaths at this very moment, yet they all followed him blindly. For all she knew, they could be falling into another trap.
After a lifetime of being strong and facing challenges, this was finally an obstacle he didn't know if he could face.
