As we are walking I can't help but to think back to that night during the war when I being tortured by Malfoy's aunt in his living room. I still have nightmares about that night and now I'm going to be having breakfast with its inhabitant. We had just passed the gates as the horrible memories from the cruciatis curse overwhelm me. I fall to my knees as the vivid nightmares fill my body with the same pain I felt that night, and I can feel myself start to hyperventilate. Malfoy realizes I am no longer following him and turns around and sees my condition. "Hermione are you okay?" He asks running over to me. "Yeah I'm fine." I say gasping for air."No your not!" He exclaims. "Are you having a panic attack?""Ummm..... I don't know maybe, This has never happened to me before." I say. "I think you are my mom used to get them a lot." He says "How did she take care of them?" I ask wanting it to stop."There wasn't exactly a cure. She just took a deep breathe and drank a glass of water." He said. "Ummm...Okay." I say. I fill my lungs with oxygen and get up and start walking toward the door. I am about to open the door when Malfoy jumps in front of me and opens the door for me to walk inside. "The kitchen is straight down the hall." He says and I start walking and he follows. "how do you do that?" He asks. "Do what?" I say walking into the kitchen."How do you overcome every obstacle you face, even when you are in a fit of hysteria on the ground." He says with a look of amazement in his eyes. "I didn't even know I did it, much less how I did it." I say with all bewilderment."I've just noticed that over the years. No matter how bad it gets you won't give up. When we were younger it was soooo annoying. But as we got older I wish I had that quality." He says with admiration. "I wouldn't call it a good quality. It's because of that 'quality' that my friends turned against me. I couldn't grieve so everyone thinks I'm a heartless killer." I say."Not everyone." Malfoy says."Well that's debatable." I say. He frowns at this."Do I not count as a person?" He asks. "I guess. But I have questioned if you were human." I say laughing."Why?" He exclaims"You didn't act human. You showed no weakness except when I punched you in third year and when we insulted you and you took offense. We thought you were an alien...." She said "That was my fathers doing. With all the work we did for the Dark Lord he taught me to hide my emotions." He said. "i hate my father" he muttered When we finally reached the kitchen he gave me a glass of water and I took it and downed the glass. "Thank you." I say. "Your welcome." He says "Look I really can't ask you to come with me. It's too dangerous, and if you get hurt I'll get blamed. And I can't afford to get caught." I say. "You go back out there you will get caught. I was at the ministry after you escaped but they were hiring experienced killers to come after you........ As in ex-death-eaters. They will find you. You can use the manor as a safe house. You can stay here while we search for who did it. And you didn't ask I volunteered." He says. "I'm not taking no as an answer." "Fine. Thank you." I say. "Your welcome." He says "I'll show you to your room then."
