Starts at the Reader's Fourth year at Hogwarts
You were sitting in the library with a book in front of you and a quill in your hand. Next to the book was a inkwell and a piece of parchment. But you just couldn't focus on the work that you had to do. Standing behind you, grabbing a book from the shelf, was a girl from Gryffindor. Her name was Hermione Granger. She had brown eyes and a long mane of brown hair while she was wearing a long sleeved white shirt with the sleeves rolled up to her elbows, a red and yellow Gryffindor tie, matching socks, a black shirt and a pair of black shoes. A slight blush crossed your face..... Hermione turned towards you but you quickly looked away from her, not wanting to make eye contact.
"Can I help you?" She asked
You blushed again, quickly gathered up your stuff and rushed out of the Library. You were in Sytherian and didn't really talk to the Gryffindor students. But even if you weren't you didn't really talk to anyone... And the reason for that... You weren't ready to talk about that yet... Maybe... A sigh escaped your mouth as you began to walk faster.
Harry and Ron had gone of to our next class together while I was walking there by myself, slowly. I ended up walking passed a large tree to see that someone was sitting on one of the branches reading a book. I noticed that the person was the Slytherian boy from the Library. The one that was looking at me. I noticed him around the school some of the time... He was always alone... which was a shame. Even though he was in Slytherian he didn't act like most other Slytherian students.
"Hey... You're not coming to class?" I called to him
He looked down at me with a lazy, tired look on his face. A sigh escaped his mouth as he shifted to the side and fell from the tree. At first I was scared that he was going to hurt himself but he ended up landing on his feet. The two of us began to walk towards Hagrid's together without a word. I noticed that he was looking towards the ground the whole way there. A slight blush crossed my face. This was so awkward.
"S-So..." I asked "... What book are you reading?"
I tried to get a look at the book cover but he moved it away so that I couldn't see it. I made my way around to the other side of him and tried to look at the book but he covered it again. I made a grab for the book while gripping his shirt sleeve with my other hand. The Slytherian boy moved the book above his head while looking towards me. Our lips were so close to touching and both our faces were beet red.
"... It's a romance novel..." He said "... The book I'm reading..."
"O-Oh... Wh-What type?" I asked
"... It's in the POV of the male character... He's shy and quiet while the girl is loud and cheerful..." He said "... But they can't be together because of family....."
The Slytherian boy didn't say anything more about the novel. Instead he took a few steps away from me, turned around and began to walk off. A slight smile crossed my face as I began to follow him. I'll definately break his shell.
Two weeks later
You were sitting with your legs crossed. In front of you was a small culdron over a burner. In your right hand was a book and in your left hand was a vial of green liquid. Around you were all your ingrediants in a messy way. You put three drops of the liquid into the culdron and smiled when it didn't explode.
"That's good" Hermione's voice said "You're really getting the hang of this"
You looked up slightly and saw that Hermione had the same set up as you but all her ingrediants were neat unlike yours. Hermione examined one jar before putting a pinch of the ingrediant into her culdron. While looking at her I ended up tipping more of the green liquid into my culdron causing it to explode. You blinked twice before looking towards Hermione who wasn't impressed. She just stared at you with an angry look so you reached over to her, carrassing her cheek.
"H-Hey!" She said
"S-Sorry" You said
You moved your hand up her cheek to her ear. Passed her ear you ran your fingers through Hermione's hair. A slight blush crossed her face but she wasn't angry anymore. Over the last two weeks you'd grown closer and closer to Hermione. The other Slytherian students picked on you for it but you didn't care... Hermione was the best thing to come into your life.
"I've got to clean this up now" Hermione said
"... Not yet..." You said "... Let me stroke your hair more..."
"F-Fine" She said, blushing deeper "O-Only for a m-m-minute"
Reader's fifth year at Hogwarts
The sky that day was completely grey and looked like it was going to rain. You and Hermione were laying on the ground outside on the grass during a spare period. The only thing that you were wearing was a long pair of black pants and a necklace that Hermione had given to you for your birthday last year. You looked to the side at Hermione and saw that she had her eyes closed and her left hand holding your right hand. The two of you had been friends for a long time and you wanted to ask Hermione out but... You just couldn't. You couldn't work up the courage to do it.
"Hey, ___" Hermione said
"... Yeah?..." You said
"Let's go study" She said "Before we get in trouble from Umbridge"
"... Right... " You said "... But how do we go about sneaking me into the Gryffindor common room..."
Hermione smiled before getting to her feet while lifting you up to yours. Without a word she lead you inside the school and towards where Harry and Ron were. They were sitting together talking until they saw the two of you. Ron didn't like you much and Harry had sorta mixed feelings about you.
"Hermione" Harry said "___"
Ron only greeted Hermione, completely ignoring you. You shifted in your place as you gripped Hermione's hand tighter. She gripped your hand back before looking at Harry.
"Give me your invisible cloak" She said
"What? Why?" Harry asked
"Just give it to me" Hermione demanded
The look on Harry's face changed as he pulled out his invisible cloak. What he was doing with it on his person you didn't know... And you weren't going to ask. Hermione thanked Harry before throwing it over you. Hermione walked off, leading you towards the Gryffindor dorm rooms. Neither of you encounted any problems on the way there and got it with easy. There were very few people in the common room. Hermione led you up the stairs and into the girls room where there was no one inside. So you took the cloak off, folded it and neatly placed it next to Hermione's bed.
"Lay down on the bed" Hermione said "I'm just going to get dress"
You laid down on the bed short ways so that your legs were hanging off the bed. You grabbed one of Hermione's books and began to read while she was dressing. A slight smile crossed your face when you realized that it was the romance novel that you'd been reading when you first talked to Hermione. A few articles of clothing flew past you including a skirt, bra and shirt but you didn't pay any attention to them. Once Hermione was dressed she laid down next to you with her side pressed against you.
"... You finally decided to read this?..." You asked
Hermione smiled slightly.
"Yeah" She said "I did"
"... Do you like it?..." You asked
"I love it" Hermione said smiling
She took the book from you while poking her tongue out.
"But now's not the time for romance novels" She said "We've got to study, ok"
"... Yeah..." You said "... I guess we should..."
The two of you spent that whole afternoon studying together without anyone else entering the girls dorm. That was until Hermione starting acting... slightly different. You looked towards her causing her to blush.
"... S-Something wrong?..." You asked
"Please don't ever leave me!" Hermione said
"... H-Hermione?..." You said
"Promise me!" She said "Please don't leave me!"
"... O-Ok..." You said "... I promise... Not to leave you..."
You and Hermione both sat up on the bed, locking eyes with eachother. You didn't expect it when Hermione threw her arms around you, hugging you tightly as she rested her on your chest. A smile crossed your face as you hugged her back. You placed one hand on her shoulder blade and the other on her lower back.
"Thank you" Hermione said
You stayed with Hermione a little longer until she eventually fell asleep. You were about to grab the invisible cloak and leave but that's when you saw something. Crawling up one Hermione's head was a large spider. You pulled out your wand and slowly crawled onto the bed without waking Hermione up. You had a knee either side of her while pointing your wand at the spider.
"_-___!!" Hermione said "Wh-What are you doing?!!"
You looked down and saw that Hermione had woken up. And you realized why: Your spare hand was pressed against her shoulder.
"... I'm killing it..." You said
"Killing what?" She asked
"... The spider on your head..." You said
Hermione let you kill the spider before pushing you off of her. She said goodnight to you before pulling her blanket over her head. You quickly grabbed the invisibility cloak, put it over yourself and quickly left.
Reader's sixth year in Hogwarts
Today was the day that I was going to confess my feelings to ___. He'd grown out of his shyness into a handsome but quiet man. A lot of girls from all four house had confessed to him but he'd turned them all down. But I knew that he'd never turn down my confession. I walked down the hallway to see that ___ was standing there with a girl hugging him from behind. ___ looked up from his book and smiled at the girl who was hugging him. I didn't know her name but from her uniform she was in Slytherian. I took a deep breath and walked over to him causing ___ and the girl to look towards me.
"___" I said
___ went to speak but the girl did instead.
"What does a filthy mudblood want with ___?" She said
I balled both my fists, crushing the letter in my hand. ___ didn't say anything or try to defend me.
"I was going to..." I began
"Get lost mudblood" The girl said
Tears formed in my eyes when ___ wouldn't make eye contact with me. I threw the letter to the ground before turning away and running off towards the Library.
You knelt down and grabbed a hold of the scrunched up paper. You unscrunched it and began to read what the paper said.
You said goodbye to your cousin before rushing off to the Library where Hermione must have gone. Once you entered you began to look around and finally saw Hermione sitting at the far end of the Library. You approached her and placed a hand on her shoulder causing her to look at you. Once Hermione realized it was you she got up from her seat with her book and went to a different table and sat down.
You sighed and walked over to her, sitting down. You placed a hand on your cheek, resting your elbow on the table. And with your other hand you pulled out your wand and summoned a small gift in front of Hermione. It was a small locket in the shape of a heart.
"Hermione..." You said "... I love you too"
Hermione smiled brightly before putting the locket on and looking towards you. She grabbed a hold of your tie and pulled you towards her, kissing you deeply on the lips. You ended up kissing her back just as deeply. Once Hermione pulled away from you she smirked, not letting go of your tie.
"H-Hermione?" You asked
"How about I show you what a 'Filthy little mudblood' can do?" She said
Your entire face turned a deep shade of red as Hermione pulled you to your feet by your tie. Without a word Hermione escorted you out of the Library and towards the prefects bathroom which she could get into.
Two months later
You were sitting in a dark, empty hallway of Hogwarts with the left sleeve of your shirt rolled up. On your arm was a mark... The Mark of a Death Eater. And because of this you'd been avoiding Hermione for the last month... You'd been avoiding everyone for the last month. And that was slowly destroying you on the inside. You wanted to talk to your friends... You wanted to be with Hermione... But you didn't want any of them to find out what you were. You took a deep breath and drove the nails from your right hand into your left arm, scratching up and down, trying to get rid of the mark. But that didn't work. The wounds closed up, not even leaving a scar.
"Why?!" You demanded "Why did this have to happen to me?!"
You slammed both your fists to the ground as you went to scream out. But you stopped yourself when you heard a voice. Looking towards it you saw that Hermione was standing there with her wand pointed towards you.
"Hermione?" You asked
"Don't even think about leaving" She said
"Why?!" Hermione demanded "Why have you been avoiding me?!"
"Answer me!" Hermione demanded
You got to your feet and sighed, revealing your mark to her. Hermione's face turned from angry to shock.
"You're a... a..." She began
"Death Eater..." You said
"It wasn't my choice!" You said "That week that I took of from school! My father forced me to join them!"
"Hermione! You believe me, right?!" You said
Hermione looked up at you before rushing towards you, grabbed your tie and pulling you to the ground with her. You had a knee either side of Hermione while your hair was covering your face.
"You... believe me... right?" You said
"... I do believe you..." Hermione said "... Just promise me one thing..."
"Sure" You said
"Don't join them" Hermione said "Stay with me... Stay on Hogwarts side"
"I will" You said
Hermione thanked you before kissing you on the lips. A slight smile crossed your face as you ended up kissing her back.
