The door won't open....... I quickly turn around and everyone, who was once in the, was now in the main entrance watching me with a grin on their face.
"If this is some kind of sick joke it isn't funny. You are all in danger because of me." I say
"Ms. Granger we are not so foolish we have charmed our home so no one can get in or out. So you are safe here." Mr. Malfoy says reassuring me.
"Until he gets bored and burns this place to the ground." I reply and walk back to my bedroom.
"Hermione?" Draco says peaking his head through my bedroom door.
I don't answer him, he knows I am angry with him. But I allow him in.
"Hermione we need to talk about this. I know that you aren't happy with me for doing this but I can't let it get hurt. I love you too much." He says sitting next to me on the bed. "They can't hurt you if they can't get to you."
"Draco I can't stay in here forever." I say. "And you know that."
"Yes I know but for now I am going to be selfish and protect you cause I can't see my life without you." He says.
"Draco I may not be anymore safe here than out there. Did you every think that your parents may want to kill. They have tried to till me in the past no doubt they still don't agree that a mudblood as the right to live in the same home as you." I say. It was harsh and cruel and I can tell he was hurt by my comments.
"They won't dare to harm a hair on your head. My parents may not have changed completely but they do respect my decisions and as much as I hate my father I let him help save us because I knew he was the only way you were going to get out of that prison alive. That is how much I love you. If I thought for a second that you were in danger here we wouldn't have even come in sight of the manor. Please hermione. Please trust that I will protect you with my dying breathe. And even then I will make damn sure you will make it out alive." He says fiercely.
I can't argue with him. I know he is telling the truth, there is no doubt in my mind that he won't protect me. But that is exactly what I'm afraid of. "I love you Draco!" And with that we sit there on my bed kissing passionately.
We break away after a few minutes to breathe and Draco asks, "how are you feeling? Anymore lightheaded feeling, or sorness?"
"I'm a little sore but not dizzy at all." I answer.
"Good." He smiles at me.
For the rest of the evening we sit curled up on my bed embraced in each others arms dozing in and out of consciousness. It is not awkward, it is comforting. We can sit is utter silence in such an intimate position and be so comfortable. It was utter bliss.
dozed in and out of consciousness all night. But every time I awoke with a start from hearing a tree limb hit the window and someone talk to loudly down the hall I always found peace knowing Draco was lying beside me.
Every now an then I could hear yelling. No doubt Harry and everyone else arguing on what to do next. Harry's only concern is keeping me safe while everyone else is thinking logical.
I have decided to fight. I am going to make it through this. I am going to have a future with Draco. We just need a plan.
