I woke up the next morning late. I quickly put on a pair of jeans and a long sleeve shirt. I brushed my teeth and ran out the door. Thank god it's Saturday. I rushed into the great hall and could physically feel everybody looking at me. I sat down at the prefects table quietly and started to eat alone as I usually do. I could hear Blaise Zabini and Malfoy laughing from beside me. I try to tune them out. "Ok ok." Blaise said trying to keep from laughing to hard. "Out of Parkinson and Granger who would you rather fuck?" Draco made and weird face and tried not to laugh. "Granger probably. She'd be to embarrassed after to be clingy like Pansy is." I blushed like mad and became very interested in my breakfast. "Isn't that right Granger?" He turned to smirk at me. I sat up and quickly rushed out of the hall.
The look on Granger's face was priceless. Blaise and I couldn't stop laughing. "Mate I'd reckon Granger has the hots for you." He said. "Every girl at Hogwarts does mate." I smirked. "But Granger never has. I bet you couldn't keep her liking you for a minute." He said. "And why is that?" I asked rather offended. "Buddy, you don't have a sentimental bone in your body. Girls like Granger like guys who aren't COMPLETE assholes." He said. "There is a fine line between "bad boy" and asshole" I frowned. "Shut up I could make her love me!" I challenged. Blaise smiled. "Up for a little wager my friend?"
I rushed up stairs to get ready for Hogsmeade. I put on a small amount of make up (Due to the fact that Ginny wanted to meet up later and told me to look nice.), put on my jacket and Gryffindor scarf and headed out. I decided to walk down with Ginny because I knew Malfoy would be late. "Wow Hermione you look great!" She said. I sighed. That was nothing coming from Ginny. Ginny was effortlessly beautiful. She had a great muscular body and long beautiful straight hair. She could be girly or boyish and she was still perfect. I still thanked her and we started our journey. We stopped by Quality Quidditch Supplies first of course knowing Ginny. And then by the Owlery to owl Ron and Harry. "Ginny what was the point of getting all dressed up!" I complained. "You're going to meet Malfoy today right?" She spoke as though I were stupid. I nodded. "Why would I want to look good for Malfoy." I asked. Ginny raised her eyebrow and bid me farewell. We parted ways and I went to the three broomsticks to meet with Malfoy. He sat in a booth close to the bar and I headed to sit with him. He grinned mischievously when he saw me walking up. "Hello Granger." He said. "Malfoy" I said curtly. "Are you ready?" I asked. "Anything to spend more with you Granger." He smirked. I scowled at him and pulled a notebook out of my bag.
"So I've compiled a list of ideas for the ball. It should be strictly black tie, only seventh years and participants of the battle should be invited and-"
"Granger you should know you sound so sexy when you talk professionally."
I ignored this comment.
"And live music. It was a large success during the Yule Ball in fourth year. Now moving on to seating. I personally think that-"
"Granger do you have any idea how hard I am for you right now?"
I blushed a furious shade of crimson.
"Malfoy must you be so crude?"
He just smirked and I continued my spiel about the seating in the Great Hall. Although he occasionally interrupted to say something stupid such as "Damn Granger. I love it when you talk nerdy to me." I scoffed at his poor use of word play and what seemed to be a failed attempt at flirting? Why on earth was Draco Malfoy flirting with me. Thank The Lord Harry and Ron walked in and called me over just then. "I think that's enough for one day." I sat up,brushed myself off and packed up my things. Malfoy stood up smoothly and laced an arm around my waist. "Y'know what Granger? You should call me when you feel like you need some more INTERESTING company." He whispered seductively. I felt I might explode at any given moment my face was so hot. He slinked away and out the front door of the three broomsticks all in one fluid movement. I found myself breathing unusually heavily.
I joined Harry and Ron for a quick butterbeer and left to go back to Hogwarts. Just my luck I ran into Blaise Zabini and Malfoy.
"Hello Ms.Granger." Zabini smiled.
"You're looking beautiful as always."
"No need to flatter me Zabini." I sneered.
"Ooh not so friendly. My dear friend Draco and I were simply going to ask to escort back to Hogwarts." He said.
I rolled my eyes and started to walk away.
"Are you lot coming of not?" I asked from behind and they jogged to catch up with me. "So Ms.Granger. Anyone special taking you to the end of the year ball?" Blaise asked. I shook my head and sighed. "I thought Scarhead and your boyfriend would come for you and the Weaslette." Draco scoffed.
"I'll have you know Harry and Ron are coming. However Ron is no longer my 'boyfriend'." I said rather annoyed. "It seems only fitting that Draco accompanies you to the ball then." Blaise suggests. My eyes flew wide open. "W-what? No no! There's no need for that." I said frantically. "I don't see why not? I mean you two are head boy and girl, you-"
"Look at the time! I better get back to Hogwarts!" I said and rushed off leaving Blaise laughing his ass off and Draco glaring and scolding.
