7. Someone's Waiting

"Today we sit here as the Hogwarts students but tomorrow we will become graduates. This place has been a place where we can discover ourselves. Our strengths, our friendships. Even our relationships" Hermione said looking at Draco.

"But it's not just about that its about the skills that we have been taught that tell us who we are. Whether that's a Transfiguration wiz, a positions master in the making or a Quidditch player. No matter what we become we all found that in the walls of Hogwarts. This is the class of 1998 and I am proud to say that I knew everyone of you."

Everyone clapped as she left the stage. Then all of the graduates posed for pictures taken with Mr Weasley's muggle camera.


In the months leading from Graduation, Hermione had received offers from Hogwarts to return as a transfiguration teacher, from The ministry of magic to become a writer for the magical beings rights magazine and from St. Mungo's to become a healer. She hadn't spoken to Draco since Graduation night, in that time she had gotten back together with Viktor Krum.

Hermione quite fancied her to be a healer and so started her training straight away. Harry and Ron had been dragged into being an Auror and so Hermione rarely saw them. She had noticed that Draco Malfoy had also chose to become a healer and so worked along side Hermione.

Everyday she saw him he nodded his head towards her but never spoke to her until one day when they had both been called to a patient ward on the floor above and so got in the lift together.

"How've you been?" He asked her.

"I'm good, thank you. How about you?"

"Yeah, yeah. I heard you got back with Viktor Krum"

"Yeah I did, he's living in London at the moment and wanted me to meet up with him. Is that a problem?" Hermione asked looking at him.

"No. No it's fine" He said very quickly. The lift doors opened and they walked swiftly to the patients room to find Oliver Wood lay on a bed bleeding quite badly.

"Oliver! Hey" Hermione said at her Ex boyfriend and International Quidditch player for Puddlemere United as a Keeper"

"Hey, Hermione. Malfoy." He said nodding his head towards Draco, Hermione knew that Oliver and Draco never got on very well and so decided to save them from awkwardness.

"So what happened?" Hermione asked Oliver.

"I fell in training and hit a wooden barrier and it split and stuck in my arm" Draco stifled a laugh behind his hand and turned it into a cough. Hermione glared at him and then turned back to Oliver.

"Right, can you take your top off, or do we need to cut it?"

"First date before you get me out of your top"

"Save your flirts for another day just take your top off!" Draco snapped. And Oliver obliged. He did so much as peel it off his arm and then couldn't get it past the bloodiest part so Hermione cut it off.

"Is it bad?" He asked

"We need to clean it, then stich it." Hermione said pulling out some dittany to clean it.

"Cant you use a spell?" Oliver asked her looking scared.

"No, because it wasn't caused by magic it cant be healed by magic so I have to stich it. This is going to hurt" She said starting to pour the dittany over his wound, he grimaced and flinched as the pain seized up his arm. Draco then pulled out a needle and thread and began to stich it not being gentle at all"

"Jeez man be careful!" Oliver shouted at Draco as he pulled the stitching tighter. When everything was finished Hermione gave Oliver some pain relief tablets and some more dittany to put on everyday. He then thanked them both and left.

"Seriously Malfoy! You could have been a little bit nicer!" Hermione said once Oliver had left

"Why he's a total nob!" he said throwing his hands up in the air

"No he's not, just because he's a better guy then you were doesn't mean you have to be mean to him!"

"Really, this is about how I treated you?!" Malfoy shouted pointing to himself.

"Yes as a matter of fact it is!"

"I'm not discussing this with you if you're going to yell at me!"

"FINE!" Hermione shouted and then walked out. She went back to her flat that night and ate an entire tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream. That night Viktor came through her fire place and laughed at the sight. She was sat on her sofa in her pyjamas with the entire content of her sweet cupboard littering the floor.

"Are you okay? Meena?" Viktor asked her. Meena was Hermione's nickname as he couldn't pronounce her full name.

"No. Malfoy's annoying me!"

"Aw its okay" Viktor said pulling her closer to his chest.

"I know, he just annoys me, anyway what are you doing here. You said you'd come round tomorrow.?"

"I know but we need to talk" He said and Hermione looked scared, he laughed and brushed a hair out of her eyes.

"It's not that bad. Karkoroff has asked me to go back to Bulgaria to teach Quidditch at Durmstrang. And I said yes. I leave tomorrow" He said. Hermione couldn't say anything she was too shocked.

"It's okay Meena I will be back, I just don't know when, I'll write to you, and I'll come and visit all the time Meena, I love you. You know I do"

"Yeah, and I love you too but you're leaving Viktor. Why don't you go and when you come back we will pick it up from where we left off?" Hermione said and Viktor nodded.

"Can I have a goodbye kiss?" he asked her and Hermione's brow scrunched up with the emotion she was trying to hide, she nodded and he lent in. It was light but passionate and loving. He then stood up wiping a tear from his eye and then left. Once he had left she began to cry and then didn't stop.

The next morning she got a call from the hospital telling her to go round to Malfoy's house as he has become ill with Dragon pox. She called by the hospital to collect with medicine and then went round to Malfoy's. When she got there along came a little house elf dressed in a pillow case. A little tuft of white fluffy hair on the top of her head.

"Hello, miss. I am Mitzy I am. Who you miss?"

"I'm Hermione Granger, please could you let Malfoy know that i'm here"

"Yes miss" she said nodding her head so her ears flapped forward.

A minute later the house elf came back and told her to go in.



Hermione walked into his bed room to see Malfoy lying on his bed looking all pathetic 

"Hello Mr Malfoy" Hermione said admiringly as she stood staring in awe at Draco's perfectly Chiselled muscular body.

"What do you want Granger?" Malfoy said splittingly as he pulled the covers up hiding his chest.

"I want you to stop calling me Granger or this will never work" Hermione said folding her hands across her body

"What's 'this'?" he said

"Im your healer" then Draco fainted.

ten minutes later Hermione was kneeling on the bed next to Draco's unconscious body.

"Draco...Draco can you hear me? Mr Malfoy!?" Hermione said shouting down his ear

"Jeez woman you're deafening me!" He said coming round slowly.

"Good you're awake, now I need to go through the weekly agenda with you. I will be here every day at 10 am and then again at 5pm until you're better, okay?" She asked, and he nodded.

"Good and while I'm here you need to take this cough syrup. Which is stupid as you have dragon pox but arr well standard procedure."

Over the next 3 weeks Malfoy got used to the appearances of Hermione. And to be honest he quite enjoyed it. There was a lot of back and forth flirting in the pair. By the end of the month Hermione had just popped round to see Draco. "Hello Mr Malfoy"

"Hey Granger, come to check my pulse?"

"Yeah something like that." Hermione's cheeks were wet, like she had just been crying.

"What's up Granger, something bothering you?"

"hmm oh it's nothing"

"Go on tell me anyway, who do I need to kill?"


"What's the idiot done this time?"

"About a month ago he told me he was moving back to Bulgaria to teach at Durmstrang. And I opened the newspaper this morning to see that he's engaged." She said starting to cry.

"WHAT? Who too?"

"That Veela model, Serena Mascarpone or whatever she's called" Serena Mascarviski had been voted number one hottest girl of the year for the past 6 years. The newspapers had had a field day at the pairs engagement saying she had put him under her veela spell and that it isn't true love. Hermione had stopped herself from screaming by scrunching the newspaper up and throwing it into the fire. Draco began to laugh which made her laugh too.

"What did you do?"

"I called him up and told him that he was a Bulgarian bon bon, and that I wouldn't be there if he ever came back. Then I put his flat up for sale without him knowing."

"You're quite a girl" He said laughing at her

"Hmm thanks... anyway you need to take some cough syrup" she said drying her eyes.

"Noooooooooooo" Draco said letting out a loud wail "Don't make me, I promise ill be good!" he fell off his bed and began to crawl backwards into the middle of his room.


"Don't do this to me, I'm not taking it, it will kill me"

"Draco Malfoy you will take this cough syrup and stop acting like a 9 year old!" Hermione said her hands on her hips.

"No I wont you cant make me"

"Wanna bet?" She said with a challenging smirk

"No Granger what are you doing? Stop. Argghh Gerr'off me woman!" Hermione had straddled his waist and was currently attempting to shove the pink liquid down his throat. Draco jerked his hand in an attempt to stop her and knocked the bottled from her hand. Pink liquid flew everywhere. Hermione being on top of his waist could suddenly feel something harden against her leg.

"ARRRGGGGHHHHH, What the hell Malfoy!"  She jumped off him and lay next him breathing heavily with fear.

"Hah! like I said you're quite a girl Granger"

"How did you...why did you? Ugghghhh" she said shuddering

"Come on it's a natural thing"

"Not when I'm sat on top of you!" Or it hasn't been for a while"

"Oh come one...the heart wants what the heart wants"

"Excuse me?" she asked her eyes wide

"You heard me. Over the past month I've remembered how amazing you are, and how gorgeous you are. I really like you. Come one we've done it before"

"What!!!" she said re-straddling him

"OW that one hurt Granger"

"I don't care, what do you mean you like me?"

"Like, fancy, love, Voulez-vous coucher avec moi"

"My god Malfoy I cant believe you just said that!" she said as she lay beside him once more.

"You know French?" He asked her looking stunned.

"No but I know Moulin rouge"

"Oh fair enough"

"How do you know Moulin rouge?"

"Muggle studies"

"Ahh" that was the only subject Hermione detested and she didn't know why "Anyway why do you like me?"

"You're perfect"

"I'm far from it, that's probably why Krum's engaged"

"No you're perfect to me" He said looking at her. She smiled and they kissed. Hermione then got up and used a cleaning spell of both her and Draco to clean the pink liquid off them. Then Draco kissed once more and they both fell on the bed and began to shed each others clothes. Then they did what they had once done when they were at school. And when they had finished Hermione lay on Draco's chest and fell asleep listening to the steady beating of his heart.
