Nothing Happens By Chance

Chapter 9

HERMIONE'S P.O.V.

She run towards the Great Hall but halted by a certain red head.

"Hermione."

"Ron." It was more of a statement than of a question. She didn't want to see him at the moment. She was going to tell Draco how she feels and Ron decided to show up. Just her luck.

"I was wondering if I could talk to you."

'Oh-oh.' She thought. "I'm sorry Ron, but I'm in a hurry. Can it wait?"

"No. This is really important."

"Uh. Fine. What is it?" She said while having a glance around her. She really doesn't want this talk.

"I... Uhm... I don't know where to begin. I guess, I... I'm sorry 'Mione. I'm sorry for cheating for you. I'm sorry that I let Brown get into my head. I'm sorry that I chose her over you. The truth is, I still love you. Please take me back. Please." He said.

'Wow, Ronald, you really are a git, aren't you. It hasn't even been a day since you broke up with that bitch and you're here begging me to take you back?' She thought. She really wants to say it but didn't. "I'm sorry Ron, but I can't."

"Can't? Why?"

"If you must know, Ron. I found someone."

"Huh, that fast?"

"Fast? Are you really asking that question? Seriously, Ron. Aren't you the one who found someone when we were still together."

"'Mione."

"Don't 'Mione me. Good bye Ronald."

With that she walked pass him and headed to where she was going before he stopped her.

She cannot believe that selfish, arrogant git. He can't even be without someone for a day.

DRACO's P.O.V.

He was walking towards the Great Hall but then he decided to come back for Hermione just in case she needs support from him. Half way through, he saw her running but somehow, she didn't see him. He then saw Red-Head and then decided to listen to what he has to say.

"Hermione."

"Ron." It was more of a statement than of a question. She didn't want to see him at the moment.

"I was wondering if I could talk to you."

'Oh-oh.' She thought. "I'm sorry Ron, but I'm in a hurry. Can it wait?"

"No. This is really important."

"Uh. Fine. What is it?" She said while having a glance around her. She really doesn't want this talk.

"I... Uhm... I'm sorry 'Mione. I'm sorry for cheating for you. The truth is, I still love you. Please take me back. Please." He said.

He doesn't want to hear her answer. Either way, he loses. If she says yes, she will be back with that git and if she says no, she has someone she likes.

He walked away feeling defeated even without a battle. He feel devastated.

NORMAL P.O.V. Uh, more like Hermione's? I don't really know how to put it into P.O.V.'s

She reached the Great Hall and searched for Draco immediately. She walked over to where Blaise and Pansy were.

"Hey guys." She said as she approached them.

"Hey, Hermione." They both greeted her.

"Have you seen Draco?"

"Uhm, no. Sorry. Aren't you two supposed to be together? I mean, you usually come here together every Saturday for the pas two months." That was Pansy.

"Yeah, well Harry and Ginny decided to catch up with me in the middle of walking with him. Listen, if you guys saw him, can you tell him that I'm looking for him. It's kinda urgent."

"Yeah, sure."

"Ok, thanks."

With that, she left the two Slytherin in be wilderness. Somehow, they have sensed that it's better to shut their mouths up than to question Hermione.

Blaise's thoughts...

'Why the Hell would she search for Draco this early? Unless...' He smiled to himself and shook his head. 'Lucky man'

Hermione's P.O.V.

Hermione then searched the whole castle high and low. She went from the library to the dungeons, from one classroom to another, from tower to tower, the grounds and the black lake, the owlery and even the bathrooms but with no such luck. She wasn't able to find him. She asked students and professors but no one has seen him since breakfast hours. Where could he be? She even tried to search for him in Hogsmade but still no luck. Where on earth was he? He wasn't in Hogsmade, was he? They aren't allowed to leave the school grounds and she had searched the entire castle, then again, Draco wasn't one to follow the rules, was he. But then it hit her, the astronomy tower. She hadn't looked there yet. She never thought of going there. She didn't want to go there. Dumbledore was killed there so no one ever wanted to go there yet.

She slowly climbed the stairs to the astronomy tower hoping that he was there. She needs to tell him. She needs him to listen. She needs him. She doesn't want to loose him.

When she reached the top of the astronomy tower, there he was, his body leaning against the railing, wind blowing through his blonde hair, head facing towards the black lake.

And as if he predicted that she'd be here he said "Took you long enough."

"Draco."

He then faced her with a half-hearted smile. "Have you told him yet?" He said, knowing that if she answered either yes or no, his heart will still break.

"No." Hermione shook her head and took a step forward.

"Then I take it that you're back with Weasley?" The rim of his eyes now starts to water. He was still smiling, he held back the tears, he wasn't going to cry in front of her.

"No." She said stopping in front of him. They were now only inches away. "I've been searching for him. You know. He's really good at hiding."

"Yeah?"

"Yeah. I searched the whole castle for him." She then reached out her hands and cupped his face then she smiled at him.

Then and there, he knew. It was him.

"I just found him, you know?"

"Hermione..." He then reached her face and kissed her. Tears overflow from his eyes. But these tears was of happy ones. It was him. She chose him. Him.

They then parted away, he placed his forehead against his. "I like... No... Hermione, I love you." He said.

"I think I love you too, Draco."

"You could have told me earlier, you know."

"Yeah, but Ginny and Harry caught up to us..."

"Not earlier this morning, earlier as in before."

"Well..."

"You know, I was hurt when you told me you like someone..."

"Draco..."

"Then I heard you talking with Weasel..."

"Draco..."

"Then he asked you to..."

"Shut up." She then kissed him again. It was sweet like the first one, but this was also with passion and hunger. Never wanting to let the other go, Draco brought his hands around her waist and brought her closer to him. Hermione's arms found its way around Draco's neck and wrapped itself there.

Draco pulled away, against his will, and again put his forehead against Hermione's, stared at her eyes and smiled at her.

Then they notices some lights descending from the skies. They both looked up and with awe, Hermione said "Shooting Stars." She closed her eyes and made a wish.

Draco was just staring at her enjoying how the lights reflects on her face. When Hermione noticed that he was staring at her, she faced him. "Don't you want to wish?"

"I already got mine." He said and smile.
