The Past Is A Little Stranger

By QueenliestAnnabelLee

Humor / Romance

Hidden

"Damn it, Hermione! We've done it before, why won't you let me touch you anymore?" Ronald Weasly shouted furiously at his petrified girlfriend, Hermione Granger. Hermione was not the nerdy bookworm that she once was; she was now a voluptuous eighteen year old with lilywhite skin and long russet hair that she magically colored to be platinum blonde on the underside. She stood tall at 5'8 with a slender, athletic build, although she rarely exercised and detested running.

"Ronald, I don't feel right when I'm with you. I've told you before and I'll tell you one last time, I'm not going to sleep with you."

Ron towered over her, trying to force himself upon her. Hermione did the only thing she could think of; she punched him in the groin with all her might and hauled ass out of the Gryffindor common room. She was fast when she had to be. She caught the attention of many students as she ran past them, a blur of grey uniform. Hermione ran until she couldn't breathe anymore, and only then did she stop to observe her surroundings: she was deep in the cavernous dungeons of the school. Suddenly footsteps could be heard echoing from the stairwell above. Hermione jerked the nearest door open and stepped in, obviously frightened that Ron had followed her. She quickly snapped the door shut and leaned her back against it in relief.

'Shit, I barely dodged that fucker!' she thought to herself as she glanced around the room. It was a beautiful bedroom with a queen-sized four-poster bed, a deep purple bedspread, ivory carpet, and ornate silver stenciling on the onyx walls. Hermione was taken aback by the utter convenience of the stunning room which must have been a teacher's quarters years ago.

'This is perfect.' Hermione decided, not wanting to have to face Ron again that night. Hermione was exhausted from her escape, and the enormous bed was looking awfully comfortable.

'Well, what the professors don't know won't hurt them,' she resolved as she kicked off her heeled boots and slipped out of her uniform; she could sleep in her undergarments for the night and use a cleaning spell on her used clothes in the morning. Hermione drifted into a pleasant slumber, dreaming of a place where Ron could never find her.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc .

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Kelsie Ann: The title of this book is ironic considering I COULD NOT put the book down! Everything about this is amazing! For the original 'His Bubblegum Klutz' readers, do not be discouraged to read this book! I was at first, but I assure you the plot is the same and it's worth reading a second time! You wi...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
