It became harder and harder, to be around Ginny, Harry and Ron, knowing that Ron was the only chance I had left.
"Ron, we need to speak!", I told him and pulled him aside, after he left Potions.
"I don't even want to know. The more I know, the worse it gets.", he replied and tried shaking my hand off his wrist.
"You don't understand. You have to know.", I explained and tightened my grip.
Harry exited the classroom but luckily he rushed up the stairs already, probably assuming we had left for dinner already.
"Ron, I did something terrible but I don't regret it.", I told him and slowly shoved my shirtsleeve up, so he could see the Dark Mark.
His eyes widened in horror.
"You-you are a Death Eater?", he gasped and gently stroke the mark and I nodded.
"Miss Granger, may you follow me to my office.", Snape requested and I obeyed.
He returned to his classroom and closed the door behind me.
"What did Snape want?", Draco wanted to know, after I had told him about Ron and my conversation.
"He told me to keep the Death Eater membership secret. I shall not tell anybody, who does not necessarily have to know.", I revised our conversation.
"Did you tell him who's idea it was?", he questioned, probably fearing for his high status in front of Lord Voldemort.
"No, of course not. How could I even dare, pushing you into this?". I asked sincerely confused.
"That's why I love you so much.", he told me and attempted to kiss me.
However, I turned him down and pushed his head aside.
"What's that supposed to mean?", I snapped.
"That one of the many reasons I love you, is the fact, that you always defend your friends.", he explained and kissed me.
The urge, to kiss him back was stronger than everything else.
