Hermione gritted her teeth irritated and slammed the knife hard against the counter. The jealousy in Draco’s tone was getting on her nerves. Why on earth didn’t he understand she wasn’t interested in Ron? Not even the slightest? Taking a deep breath, she turned around and locked eyes with her lover. “You know perfectly well, Draco..”, she said in a warning tone, while she was trying to keep her anger under control. He was making it awfully hard. “..That me and Ron was together for a while, but we aren’t anymore. When are you gonna let this go?”, she spat. She honestly didn’t know how long she could take his complaining about her friend. Hermione knew her lover well and she knew he wasn’t done yet. He was far from done.
Draco curled his lip in anger and laughed a hollow laughter that sent shivers down Hermione’s spine. “Save it, Granger. We all know that if you ended it with me, he would come crawling back to you like some kind of sick pig that has nothing else to do, and then you would welcome him with open arms”, his tone was cruel, harsh and nothing like the Draco she had learned to know over the past years. He knew he had pushed her too far when he saw the fury flash in her eyes. His expression flattered for a moment, but it was only for a second, before his hard expression was back.
The seconds that ticked on the clock felt like hours to them both, and Hermione was the first one to break the ice. Quickly, she grabbed her robe and looked at Draco with ice cold eyes. “Why don’t you come and find me, when you have grown up, Malfoy. I think that would be best for us both”, his face wavered at her angry tears and his instinct told him to grab her and comfort her. So he did.
It had been a big mistake. Had she just.. had she just slapped him? The atmosphere around them turned tense, making them both silent as she understood what she had done. Dark amber met stormy grey, the silence tormented them both and without thinking further, Hermione grabbed Dracos cheeks furiously and forcefully kissed him hard. She didn’t push away before it felt like there was no oxygen in the world, like there was only them in the world. So he didn’t believe her words? Fine, she would show him he was the only one for her.
