The next morning in the great hall everyone is gathered to have breakfast and hear professor Mgonugall’s announcement.
“Your attention please students,” she said loudly and everyone turned to look at the staff table.
“We will now be announcing the head boy and girl and the depth head boy and girl this morning. We’ve had nominations from all four houses but this year we want there to be a sense of unification, so this year’s head boy will be Mr Draco Malfoy and this year’s head girl will be miss Hermione Granger” she said and there were mixed reactions from the great hall.
Young students were applauding but the older students of the Slytherin table looked over at the Gryffindor table in disgust who were doing the same to the Slytherins. Hermione had dropped her spoon into her bowl of soup in shock and her brown eyes met Draco’s grey ones who was looking back at her with his jaw open in shock.
“This is an outrage!” Astoria whined annoyingly in Draco’s ear. His gaze broke from Hermione’s to look at Astoria who was scowling angrily.
“How can Mgonugall put a hot guy like you with that mud blood scum?” She asked clinging onto Draco’s arm.
“This is ridiculous, how can she put Hermione with that prick?” Ron asked Harry while nudging him with his elbow. Harry shook his head and looked at Hermione.
“I’ll ask her to change it to someone else if you want Hermione,” he asked Hermione looking sympathetically at her. She looked up at him and laughed a little shaking her head.
“The past is in the past and I’m honoured to be picked for head girl,” she replied and Harry sighed.
“Alright, but be careful” he warned Hermione who nodded.
“This year’s deputy head boy will be Mr Blaise Zabini” professor Mgonugall announced and everyone clapped.
“Nice job cousin,” Vincent said cheerily and patted Blaise on the shoulder. Blaise grinned and thanked his cousin.
“At least this won’t be as boring as I thought, I’ll have my best mate with me as well” Draco stated happily and Blaise chuckled.
“And the deputy head girl this year will be Miss Ginny Weasley,” she said and the whole room gasped.
“What?!” Ron and Harry said together in pure shock. Some did applaud but others muttered among themselves.
“I’m not meant to be deputy head girl!” Ginny exclaimed looking at Hermione in shock. Hermione was smiling at her friend happily.
“Well, you’ll be in a dorm with me” she began speaking the first part then leaned over the table to whisper to Ginny.
“And you’ll be near your Romeo as well” she whispered and giggled. Ginny giggled as well and both of them sighed.
“You will all need to meet me in my office at lunch” professor Mgonugall said and then took her seat as everyone carried on eating.
