Hey! For those who are waiting for an update on Drinny, I am currently working on chapter 3, but I got this idea after binging a bunch of Dramione. It will end up being a fairly long chapter fic, but I don't think it's going to have any sort of regular update time [do any of my fics though?]
Disclaimer: The only think I own is the plot
She got that prickly feeling again. That itch on the back of her neck that felt like someone was watching her. It was a life-saving feeling during the war, but she no longer needed it, and couldn't figure out how to turn it off. She sighed to herself of course someone was watching her; she was Hermione-bloody-Granger and she was at some stupid Ministry event. She let her eyes scan the crowd as she looked for Harry or Ron.
She soon locked eyes with her almost-brother and he sent her a bored look. Harry was trapped in a conversation with one of his fans and Hermione gracefully extracted him from the woman's chatty clutches. "Sorry, I was just wondering if I could borrow Harry for a moment please."
The woman fawned over Hermione for a minute before walking away. "Thanks 'Mione. Merlin that woman was talkative. It was 'thank you this' and 'oh my I'm such a fan' that." Harry wrapped his arms around Hermione's waist and pulled her into a hug. "Well enough about our fans." He said with an eye roll. "How have you been? Still looking for a job?"
Hermione nodded. "I know how much you and Ron love your Auror training, but I can't do that. I've had enough fighting to last a lifetime."
"You know you could always get a job at the Ministry. Kingsley said he would love to have you."
Hermione sighed. "Yes, yes I know. It's just that I don't want to get a job just because I'm a war heroine."
Harry laughed and rolled his eyes. "Well if the Ministry doesn't want to hire the brightest witch of our age who got all O's on her Newts then I'm not sure they should hire anyone."
"Well when you put it like that…" Hermione grinned. "I'll think about it Harry. I truly will." She slowly scanned the room again. "I should go and be social with other people or someone might think I'm trying to steal you away from Ginny."
"Let them gossip." Harry said as he kissed her cheek. "Don't forget to save me a dance!" He called as he walked away to find his girlfriend.
"Prat" Hermione called to his back with a smile. She turned and managed to bump into someone. "Oh I'm sorry; I wasn't watching where I was going." She said at the same time he said.
"Forgive me." He straightened her up and stepped back, keeping one hand on her arm. "You're looking well Granger."
"Malfoy, what are you doing here?" Hermione said incredulously.
"Well Granger." The blond drawled. "I was invited to this event." At Hermione's silent question he explained. "I helped pay for quite a few repairs and Shacklebolt thinks he can thank me by inviting me to these."
There was a pause in the conversation and Draco bowed to the puffy-haired witch. "I shall take my leave now. Goodnight and I am sorry for bumping into you."
"Thank you for catching me." She said as she watched him walk away.
"Well the Wrackspurts seem to be surrounding him now." A soft voice said from behind Hermione's shoulder.
"Luna! How are you? I didn't think you'd be back from your trip yet." Hermione wrapped her friend in a tight hug.
"Well we did manage to see some Blibbering Humdingers, but our trip to see the Crumple-Horned Snorkack was a failure." The blonde said with a shake of her head, causing a yellow rose to fall from her hair.
As she braided it back into her hair Hermione smiled. "I like the flowers, but I'm not quite sure what all of them are."
"Yellow roses, gardenias, and cosmos." Luna said with an airy smile. "It bodes well for tonight." Her brow crinkled slightly. "Well as long as the Wrackspurts behave."
Hermione nodded confusedly at the spacey Ravenclaw. "Well I hope the-uh-Wrackspurts behave."
Luna laughed. "Yes you would hope for that. The flowers do tell, don't they?" Luna nodded once at Hermione before gliding off.
I have found that I absolutely adore writing Luna! She shall be very important to this story ;) Also, I shall be dropping little hints and if you can guess them correctly you get a cookie :3
