So, will you marry me?” asked Hermione weakly.
Draco watched the woman in front of him, desperation written all over her and agreed with a smirk, “’Till Death Do Us Part, Granger.”

Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews Read
1 The Proposal

She finally said solemnly, “Harry doesn’t need your protection, just me. I need it.”

Draco’s jaw tightened. “And tell me, Granger, what’s exactly your plan to protect you, a mudblood, during times like these?”

There, that word again. It made her wince. “I’m proposing a marriage.”

2 Hermione's Flashbacks

She read it again. And again. She hoped this is not what she read. But every time she read it, the words became clearer and clearer.

Lucius Malfoy has escaped Azkaban.

3 Dark Magic

 They both heard the doorknob rattling and a second later, a dark man stumbled in mumbling, “Draco, let me crash here.”  His eyes landed on the two, Draco on top of her, their faces very close together, staring at him.

Blaise rolled up his sleeve hurriedly, revealing a skull with a snake slithering out of its mouth: the Dark Mark. His wand was drawn, he was inching his wand to the mark.

4 Remember where you stand

He heard her soft voice, sounding sweet in his ear, but he pretend not to hear her, shutting his eyes. Draco was pushing her away from him mentally, but it was proving to be difficult. He ran his fingers through his hair, breathing heavily. He felt the bed shift, knowing she was turning away from him and feeling the silk brush against his bare back.

Draco, he told himself, remember where you stand.

5 Draco's Flashbacks

“Hate is a such strong word. I am not friends with Mr. Malfoy, but what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong regardless of personal feelings” He heard the poison in her voice seeping through. “And what would be wrong here,” she shot a glare at Draco, “is to convict Mr. Malfoy of crimes he did not do...

6 Draco's Flashbacks II

He knew he struck a nerve as she began shaking with fury. “Not, everything is about money, Malfoy! I didn’t say yes to Ron’s proposal because of money or anything so superficial! But for the good in him and what’s in here!” She pointed at her heart. “Something you’ll never understand. And you’ll never even amount to half the man he is!...."

7 Kitten's Play

“Draco,” she purred, walking to him with open arms with hip swaying exaggeratedly. She cupped his face with her hands and kissed him hard. Hermione’s mouth hung in shock. She looked a decade and an half older than him. Draco unfazed by her gesture, lazily laid his arms around her waist. She pulled back, giggling lightly.

8 Itís Not a Game

She slapped him. Her hand left a stinging sensation on his cheek as he grazed it with his thumb in total shock, she actually hit him. AGAIN! Never in his life was he ever hit other than her! And the fact that she did it again! He turned to her, eyes flashing threateningly.

9 Malfoys

And her wand was now out of her reach.

She was going to be killed by Lucius Malfoy.

10 Realization of Attraction

Draco’s heart pounded with the realization. He was attracted to Hermione Granger. There was no doubt about that. But that was all there was.

11 Branded

  Lucius pointed the tip of his wand at her forearm, whispering words quickly under his breath. Something was burning into her skin, sizzling and faint steam coming from her forearm. She struggled to get away from his grasp and stretching her arm out for her wand.

12 Messages

He looked down at her face, their faces so close. And a thought hit him. Drastic times call for drastic measures. He pressed his lips hard against her as her eyes widened in shock, distracting her from the picture. He was able to snatch the photo from her hand. But even with the photo in his hand, his lips lingered on her much longer than what he intended and should had. Her lips were perfect, supple and tender. He wanted to bite down teasingly on her bottom lip. But he knew better. Draco pulled back his roughly, his heart beating a storm in his chest.

13 Protection

Draco felt hot breath on his chest and shifted slightly to feel a small amount of weight on him. He opened his eyes quickly and looked down at the sprawled out golden-brown hair and Hermione’s face sleeping soundly beneath all the hair. How did she end up here? He watched as her eyes fluttered open and looked up at him.

14 Engagement Party

Draco felt something strange… Was it pride? Looking at Hermione show the tattoo, was it pride he felt that she was his?

15 Keeping Promises

Upon reading it, Draco jumped to his feet and quickly said, “Going.”

“No. You. Are. Not,” growled Hermione. “You made me a promise, Malfoy. That you wouldn’t go to these things. I can’t stand to see you get hurt.”

“Granger, you’re not my real fiancée,” he spat. 

“I am your friend!” she cried. “You are not going. I care about you. You will not go.”

16 How Much a Person Could Mean?

“MALFOY!” she cried. “NO!” Her sob was loud and desperate, her chest heaving. She ran to the wreckage, pulling bricks and throwing them aside. “PLEASE!” she howled. She tried to apparate, but couldn’t. She balled her fist together and squeezed her eyes shut. No use.

He heard her voice distant and glanced behind him. She wasn’t there. “Granger!” he bellowed, panicked.  "No. Please. No.” He darted to the debris, screaming on top of his lungs, “GRANGER! GRANGER!”

17 It Hurts...

He threw the glass against the wall as it shattered and firewhiskey splattered everywhere. He stared at the drink trickling down the wall as he screamed loud with clenched fists.

He was hurting.

18 Masquerade Ball: Surprise!

Then he spotted a stunning blonde in the crowd. Every man was eyeing her, hungrily. She seemed oblivious. She was just staring up at the ceiling. And he knew he had to have her. He weaved through people and once he was behind her, he brushed his fingers up her thigh. Hermione immediately wheeled around to see a handsome man smiling at her. This was her chance. To prove to herself that she didn’t need Ron. There were plenty of other men just like the one in front of her. 

2501 12
19 Masquerade Ball: Proposal

Who would cheat on her? Hermione is beautiful and sweet. She deserved better than the bloody Weasel.

Wait… They’re still friends. Merlin, she must be hurting. He had to go find her.  

1864 16
20 The Makeup

Why hadn't she ever felt this way before? Why did it seem that Draco was the only one she was attracted to? She blushed at this. Oh, Merlin! Did she have a crush on Draco Malfoy—

4134 16
21 Kidnapped

She sat there and wondered when her feelings for him became stronger than a friend. She rummaged through her head, searching for that moment. The memories between them two. Funny how things change. How two people can grow up and become better. That’s it. She broke. 

2632 13
22 Live in the Moment

“Got to live every moment like it’s your last.”

Hermione’s heart was pounding hard as she became entranced with his stormy grey eyes. Draco licked his lips… Live in the moment. He cupped her face, his heart thundering as he leaned forward. His lips brushed lightly against her and as he was about to fully meet her soft lips—

23 Granger's Eyes

Marriage and kids still echoed in Draco’s mind. He imagined Hermione with a round belly, grinning up at him and her eyes lighting up beautifully. Those eyes… His eyes bore into hers. He saw a young boy with pale skin and blond hair, but with big brown eyes filled of innocence. The boy would be giggling, “Daddy!” He never imagined what his kid who ever look like and now when he thought of him, why did he have Granger’s eyes?

24 Christmas

The fudge touched her lips as she brought her hand to the back of his neck. Her lips vaguely met his lips with half of the fudged in her mouth. He bit down on the fudge, breaking it. He sucked on it, but his lips still brushed against hers. Hermione was ready. She wanted it, a dangerous feeling of lust for this man.

25 Leaving You

“You came looking for me for a reason and I think we both know why.”

Hermione didn’t speak a word.

“My proposal is still up in the air,” Blaise smirked.

26 Happy Christmas

Draco dropped to his knees in front of Hermione and held her shoulders, rubbing them. “Is that what you thought? Listen, I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t. Are you still going to accept his proposal?”

“Yes. I’m better off with Blaise. You’re too unstable.” Shakily, she rose to her feet and stared down in pity at Draco. “I can’t handle you anymore.” 

2173 33
27 Prophecy

“Listen, about Christmas night—”

Before Hermione could hear the words she dreaded to her, she said it herself, “I know. It was a one-night stand. Don’t worry. I understand.”

Draco swallowed the truth he wanted to say. “Yeah,” he nodded. “It was.” 

3822 21
28 New Year's

He unintentionally slammed her against the wall roughly as his kisses were no longer gentle. It was uncontrollable as he gave in to the enslaving hunger. Hermione wasn’t necessarily gentle either as she cupped his face and pressed his lips hard against hers. So much for a one-night stand.

29 By the Shore

She gave a low chuckle, but her heart was not really in it. “Do you still want to do it?”

“Do what?”

“Get married.” 

1449 19
30 Wedding Day

“Do you, Draco Lucius Malfoy take this woman, Hermione Jean Granger as your wife, to love her and to honor her, to nurture, serve and support her, in times of joy and in times of difficulty? Do you promise to remain by her side regardless of what trouble befalls you, and in the presence of temptation to forsake this love, do you promise to remain steadfast and true? Do you promise with all your heart and soul to honor this vow till death do you part? If so answer now, “I do.’”

31 After the Wedding

How could he not be? He was in love with her and he understood that most people waited to officially be married for a couple of years even if they were madly in love with their partner, but he didn’t mind. He accepted he will learn more about her every day while they’re married, no need for “dating,” although they couldn’t have dated anyway. He was perfectly happy with how things are.

32 Honeymoon

“Well, I know I haven’t been the best. Most of the time I’m a jerk… I can be a smart ass and rude, but… I—I, well I care for you… Merlin, this is er—hard, well I—um, love you,” he sighed.

Hermione wanted to fall weak on her knees. Was this a confession of love? She almost stopped breathing.

“And I never properly propose to you… So, I am kinda now…” he nervously chuckled. “Will you marry me? Officially…that is.”   

3645 22
33 A Letter from Ron

She was so thankful to hear from Ginny. Expect it wasn’t from Ginny…

It was from Ron.  

2728 21
34 Krum

Please, leave Malfoy and come to France… I will make it up to you.

Love always and forever,

35 Rabastan

There was a crash somewhere that shook the entire cabin with a sound that echoed through the hallways and in all the rooms, reaching every corner. Both Rabastan and Hermione looked up as the smell of smoke and burnt wood wafted in the air.  

2385 29
36 Ignorance

 Oh, Melrin…. She wanted to bent over and vomit. No, she really wanted to vomit. She held her stomach...  

1914 25
37 Just Run

“We’re not having children,” he growled.

“What if—”

He slammed his balled fist on the desk, sending a quake of anger. “We. Are. Not. Having. Children.” 

2101 18
38 "Tonight We Leave"

“I’m sorry I ran. I didn’t know what else to do. What was I supposed to do? I can’t parade around like other fathers with pride.”

“Because the child is half-blood?” she snarled, baring her teeth. 

2103 24
39 The Painful Escape

Hermione nodded as if he was there with her. She placed her hand over her little bulge. She breathed in and out deeply and heavily. The nerves in her slowly disappeared, washing away. Staring up at the ceiling, she realized something. Her eyes widened. Her mind screamed, Kinsley and Dean! 

2315 22
40 The Run-Away

“Why are you running from Draco?...”

She gazed up at him with tear-filled eyes and shook her head vaguely.  

3044 16
41 Finding You

She was right there. He opened his arms and she opened her. She threw himself into his as they wrapped around his neck and his arms around his waist. With week knees, they both fell onto the ground and Hermione sob echoed into the dusk.

2268 24
42 Fairfield

Everything came screeching into a halt for Draco. All that was heard was the clock ticking away, but surely everything else had stopped for Draco. The devastation dawned on him slowly like a lonely dark sunset on the horizon turning to black. 

2357 13
43 12 Grimmauld Place

Hermione was staring bluntly at the folder the entire time. “We need to bring that to Reeves…”

“Lead the way.”

“But first, we have to visit Ginny.” 

2959 15
44 America

She can only hope once the war was over, she could finally have her happy ever after.  

2842 11
45 Fights, Reunions & a Change of Life

“This is my sorry for you, son. But you know I would have never accept this and never will. So, in a world where Malfoys do not have power, is the only world where you will be happy. I give up.” 

3267 12
46 Happily NEVER After

Hermione was beyond puzzled. She could not believe that Draco was actually asking for a divorce. “A…a…divorce…is that what you want?”

He fully turned towards her with arms crossed and leaned against the desk. “Granger…”

“I’m not Granger…”

“At least not yet…” 

1962 20
47 3 months later...

He looked up and the piercing gray eyes confirmed either her worst nightmare or a dream come true. 


2549 12
48 Confessions

 Hermione became silent for a bit with wide eyes, filled with salty lakes. “Draco… I was never acting. I never lied, ever. When I said the words, ‘I love you,’ I meant with all my heart and still mean it.”

2931 18
49 Wedding Day II

"Marriage to be is another great adventure.”

50 Epilogue

“And you know that I’m madly in love with you?”

“I am dangerously in love with you.”
