Hermione steps out of the shadow, looking at me carefully. She puts her head on Draco's shoulder. "I'm so sorry, Neville."
"What do you mean?"
"We're done. Well, can you be done when you were never started?"
"But-b-b-but we-we kissed, and you-y-you said you loved me! That has to mean something!" I feel tears rising, but I force them back.
He laughs. "No, it doesn't. You were just a decoy; a way for me to get what I wanted. In this case, to prove to my family that Hermione and I could happen. That I can be steady."
I lick my lips. I nod, and leave.
I run to the edge of his manor, where I know there to be a cliff.
Taking a deep breath, I jump.
