So here is the chapter for today, I finally managed to overcome my lag. Tomorrow is the last chapter. How do you guys want Draco and Hermione to meet? I am sorry for the really short update.

isra22: Thanks! Sadly it's coming to an end. :(

broodingloom: A little something for you in the chapter for keeping me constantly motivated to write this. I am not used to updating so fast, so this was quite stressful for me but you and all the other readers kept me motivated enough to not give up on this.

The Day of Wishes

Sleep scared her, consciousness scared her. If she slept, the dreams come would come again and make her feel helpless, if she didn't sleep then her thoughts would kill her. Hermione rolled in her bed, she had tried reading, doing some work, even cooking but nothing made her feel better. She was feeling blank, she couldn't concentrate. She got out of bed and went out to her balcony. The floor was ice cold under her bare feet, she shivered as the air bit through her thin night dress, she tried to calm herself.

Hermione woke up to her alarm clock in the morning; she had finally taken a dreamless sleep potion yesterday night. She went to the bathroom to brush her teeth and caught her reflection in the mirror, her hair was a bird's nest, and dark bags had formed under her blood shot eyes. She felt sick, gloom brooded in every point of her body but she had to go the work today.

The day passed slowly for her, but she didn't want to go home. She was scared of being alone, she felt safe here, surrounded by her co-workers. Finally, when she had finished all the work she had, she couldn't find another excuse to stay and she had to leave for home. She thought of going to Ginny's first but then decided against it, Ginny would worry and ask her what had caused her to feel like she was feeling. Hermione wasn't ready to disclose the reason to everyone just as yet.

Hermione took out the letter she had received from the Ministry that morning and read it again.

Dear Miss Granger,

We hope you enjoyed the "The Seven Days of Valentine" and hope you will take past next year too. The task you get today, the Wish Day, will be your last task. For today, you must share with your partner five things you want to do before you die.

Yours sincerely,

Betty Smith

Head event manager

The Ministry of Magic

She had already received her partner's letter.

Here are the five things I want to do before I die:

Write a book

Take a world tour

Perfect the art of potion making

Learn how to cook

Have kids

Your partner

He had let go of his doubts, it was time that she let go of hers doubts and open up to him too.

Dear Partner,

I was touched by how sincere your letter was. Here are the five things I want to do before I die:

Bring change in the society

Learn three foreign languages

Invent a spell that will help the world

Live in different places

And just like you, have kids

I can't wait to meet you tomorrow.

Your Partner

She really couldn't wait to meet him, she was excited, not only about finding out his identity, but also about her future, about how he might change her life.
