Chapter 1: A Peculiar Note
Hermione looked up from her book just long enough to glance at her watch. She let out a deep sigh. Quarter-of-Ten. Soon, Madam Pince would be coming a round to shoo her, and the very few other student remaining in the library, out for the night. She turned back to her book, hoping to finish the chapter she was on before she had to go back to the common room.
Out of the corner of her eye, Hermione saw a tall figure approach. It was covered in a black cloak, and stopped at her table only long enough to drop a note in front of her with a gloved hand. Hermione turned around and watched the mysterious person stride out of the library and down the hallway.
She then turned her attention to the envelope in front of her. It was made of plain parchment, like the ones used by all Hogwarts students, and there was nothing particularly extraordinary about it. On the back was a plain, black, wax seal bearing the Hogwarts crest.
Overflowing with curiosity, Hermione slit it open. It was composed of letters that looked as though they had been cut out of the Daily Prophet, much like the hate-mail she had received during the previous year. But this was definitely not hate-mail. The message read:
I just want you to know that I think you are the smartest,
nicest, and prettiest girl that has ever gone to Hogwarts. I have
had a crush on you since we were in our second year. I can't tell
you who I am, but I really like you a lot.
Your Secret Admirer
Hermione felt herself turning red. Some boy, in her year, had a major crush on her. She felt very flattered, especially after Victor had dumped her for that ditzy blonde from Beauxbatons.
She had just put the note back in its envelope when Madam Pince came over.
"Miss Granger, you need to be getting back to your common room."
"Yes Madam Pince. I'll see you tomorrow."
Hermione then left the library, completely forgetting about the book she had been reading.
When she arrived at the Gryffindor common room, Hermione found Harry and Ron in the middle of a heated match of wizard's chess. A good majority of the few people left in the common room had gathered around them to watch.
"Knight to E5." said Ron.
As the spectators watched, Ron's knight advanced to E5, taking Harry's queen. Half of them cheered, while the others said things like, "It's okay Harry." and, "You can still beat him!"
Hermione went up to a tall girl with wavy, brown hair and poked her in the back.
"Psst, Megan." She whispered.
"What?" Megan asked. Her blue eyes looked at Hermione through a pair of glasses.
Hermione motioned for Megan to follow her. The two then slipped up the stairs to the girls' dormitory, and into their room.
"What is it Hermione?" Megan asked.
Hermione then told her about what had happened and showed her the note.
"But don't tell Harry and Ron", she warned, "they'll only tease me about it."
"Don't worry, I won't", Megan promised. "Oh my gosh, this is so awesome! You have a secret admirer! I wonder who it is?" ((A/N: corny, I know. But I couldn't think of anything else for her to say.))
"So do I."
