"Will you write me?", I asked Draco shyly and he kissed me as a reply.
"As soon as possible!", he comforted me and embraced me tightly.
"Now be a good girl in school," he advised me and chuckled, "as if you weren't. We'll see each other in a few weeks of time."
"I hope so," I sighed, "but Umbridge doesn't like us going to Hogsmeade."
"Damn, you're right. Anyway, take this," he demanded and handed me over a small golden box, "open it when you're back in your dormitory."
"Thank you," I said, surprised about the unexpected gift, "I'll write you as soon as I opened it."
"I'm looking forward to that letter!", he giggled and gave me a passionate kiss, marking our farewell.
"Hermione, move!", Ron shouted for me and Draco laughed.
"I cannot imagine what you meant," he joked and held my head in both hands, "take care of yourself."
With a low crackling sound, he disappeared and I stood mid-street, on my own.
"What's that, loverboy gave you?", Ron asked staring at the small box.
"I have no clue what DRACO gave me," I replied, "but he asked me to open it in my dormitory. So it's none of your business, obviously!"
"Having an idiot as a boyfriend and secrets now, huh?", Ron barked and Harry punched him.
"Ron!", he snapped, " I cannot believe you still behave like that. Why don't you understand, that Hermione wanted to spend this weekend with Draco, as it will probably be her last until Christmas?"
"It's not like this was the only trip to Hogsmeade!" Ron tried to defend himself.
"It perhaps is," I grunted, "do you remember, Umbridge forcing new school rules upon us? She'll probably take us all fun things and forbid trips to Hogsmeade."
He stared at me first and then at Harry, hugged me and whispered an apology into my ear. This simple gesture made me forgive him by instance. He might not get along with Draco, but he knew how to cope with me. Harry gave an approving nod and we headed back to Hogwarts, as friends.
