"Morning Hermione," Ron greeted me, three days after Draco had left.
I nodded towards him and left the common room. Since Draco had left, I felt miserable and moody, on top of that, I treated my friends badly. I couldn't help it but it was just too hard cheering up while waiting for Draco's letter.
"It's not our fault, that you haven't received a letter yet!", Ron complained, as he sat down next to me.
"Ron," I sighed, "I'm really sorry, it's just the suspense is killing me. He promised to write me, as soon as possible. Wait, that's his owl!"
I teared up as I realized, that it was in fact Draco's owl. I grabed the owl and hugged it tightly. Harry, Ron, Ginny and some other Gryffindors stared at me, however I didn't care. As fast as possible without ripping the paper, I unfolded the letter and read:
I am sincerely sorry for my late letter. There was really no time to write, I had to catch up to the other students. We'll meet each other soon enough anyways, I promise. I may not be able, to apparate onto school grounds, surely you are smart enough to figure it out. write me soon.
As if a switch was turned, my mood improved immediately. I couldn't wait for the evening to come, so I could answer his letter. Finally, I understood, how I could meet Draco. I couldn't wait for it, even though he had only left three days ago. Love really is the worst emotion, missing Draco hurt more than anything else, I had ever experienced. Ron experienced mixed feelings, as he was happy, to have me in a good mood but to know that it was thanks to Draco, didn't please him too much. The fact, that Draco had a strong influence on me and my mood, while being far away, seemed to seriously piss Ron off.
