Chapter 1 Arrival
I laugh in the face of danger! And then I hide until it goes away.

Hermione was petrified.
She had never done anything like this in her life. It wasn't as if working for the Order had really ever required her to do anything like this. But here she was, dressed and ready to do what she had to. Become Malfoy's call girl.
At least it's for the younger, she reminded herself. Thank god for small mercies. She couldn't believe she had let herself be talked into this.
"I hope you can put your personal feelings aside for the moment, With Severus' discovery, Draco is the only agent who has access to Voldemort's plans. He needs help." Dumbledore had told her.
"Surely he would prefer someone else!" Hermione scoffed.
"Just who do you propose we send? Even if Harry or Ron were here, I doubt they'd be right for this job. Besides, it's way too risky to send either of them into Voldemort's headquarters. You're the only one we have." He reasoned.
Hermione thought. She admitted to herself that even though Harry and Draco had stopped hurling curses at each other after a passing glance, a round of Kumbayaa wasn't likely. "What about Ginny?" She suggested.
"Even if she wasn't working on another case, I don't want the whole Weasley clan knocking down my door. We need you. Unless you really don't think you can do it..." he trailed off.
Hermione sighed, resigned. "You know I will."
End of Flashback
Hermione was snapped out of her reverie by the fact that she had arrived. She grimaced at the broken down snake supply store. Figures, she thought dryly. I should have known that's how they'd conceal their headquarters. She set her teeth and pushed through the door. And into five burly men and one Lucius Malfoy.
"My, my, my, do we have an intruder?" Lucius' silky voice spoke first.
Here we go.
