Wait For Me
Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger walked into the Great Hall, hand in hand. To anyone else, it would've been a shock, but the students at Hogwarts had already put up with it for 6 months. Who were they to object now?
"Hogsmeade today? After classes, just for a fun walk?" asked Draco.
"Only if I get to buy a couple of books I've had my eye on for a while now," Hermione continued, "but I'm already meeting Harry, Ron, and Ginny for a couple of minutes after class. So wait for me, please?"
"Always Granger, always," and with that, her and Draco parted ways with a kiss.
"So, it's your birthday, what do you want to do?" Draco said, while he struggled with his tie. Hermione lazily stretched on the silk sheets that covered their bed.
"Maybe just dinner and a movie?" she suggested.
"Whatever you want, Princess," he was still struggling with the tie. Hermione laughed and got off the bed to help him.
"I have to get ready though, so just wait for me?"
"Always Granger, always," she vaguely heard him say as she walked into the bathroom.
"Draco," Hermione whined, as her husband kissed her neck.
"I have to take the kids to school, but when I get back. I promise, just wait for me. Okay?" She reluctantly pushed herself away from Draco's embrace.
"Always Granger, always" he said as she got dressed.
Tears streamed down her face as she looked down at the ground."Draco, I miss you. I still love you, and I know you still love me. But I'm close to breaking, save me a seat next to yours," she looked at his grave and laid a while rose on top of the wet soil.
"I'm coming soon, just wait for me, Draco," her voice cracked as she hit the floor sobbing, not just because he wasn't here with her, but because for the first time, she didn't get a response.
