I have nothing better to do.


Somehow, going to the lake with Malfoy every night was becoming a routine.

"Why do you insist on coming with me every single time?" Hermione asked, annoyed beyond belief. Malfoy shrugged.

"Granger, you're just that fascinating."


They took the usual path from the castle to the lake, careful not to trip over protruding roots and rocks. The water seemed unusually calm, placid in a way Hermione had never seen it. It was getting warmer, so taking a dip wasn't so bad. The water's temperature had risen a bit. Not only that, but having a live, human body beside her was better than being alone.

Hermione began to take off her robes. Malfoy did the same, and together, they waded into the lake. The water lapped at her skin, drenching her. She looked up at the sky.

"The moon's full." Malfoy stated. Hermione stared at him, then nodded. She took a deep breath. "I'm cold," she whispered. "So cold."

She didn't expect him to do anything, but when his arms encircled themselves around her bare waist, she shook her head.



"Get your hands off of me."

He laughed. "Why should I?"

"I'll drown you if you don't."

He let go, moving away from her slightly. "So, I'm not allowed to touch you, then?"


Malfoy sighed. Hermione got out of the water and went back to her robes.

I wonder...

"Ma- Draco, could you help me put these on?"

She watched as he came towards her, hair dripping with the water from the lake.

"You called me by my first name."

"We're on a first name basis, aren't we?"

"I wasn't aware of that."

She lay down on the sand. "Dress me."

He slipped her skirt onto her. "Your legs are smooth," he remarked. "Very smooth."

She nodded and handed him her shirt. She noticed how his eyes lingered on her chest for longer than they should have...

"You want me, don't you?"

Malfoy froze. "Well, you're attractive, aren't you?"

"I don't know. Tell me just how attractive I am."

He looked at her, his gaze intense. "Your eyes... They're perfectly shaped. Dark, big, mysterious... Your eyelashes are so long, too."

Hermione grinned inwardly.

"Your lips. They're full. Luscious..."

She blinked. "You think so?"

He nodded. "And your hair."

"It's ugly."

"No, it's sexy." He countered. "Your body is, too."

"You didn't answer my question, you know." Hermione said, smirking.


"Do you want me?"

Malfoy cleared his throat. "Yes, I suppose I do."

"Well, I have a confession," Hermione murmured.

"What's that?"

"I..." she said breathily. "I'm rather tired. I think I'll be going to bed now. See you."

She left him there, feeling something heavy settle in her stomach.


I kind of want reviews, if it's not an inconvenience :)
