"Move out of the way." Hermione sneered at the auror standing in front of her.

"I'm sorry, Miss. But the public is not allowed to access this area at the moment." The auror responded, his face was blank but his eyes were betraying a slight fear of the witch in front of him. Hermione was standing on the pavement just outside a small park in London, near Bond Street. The park had suddenly been closed off for 'renovations', and Hermione was going to see what was inside the white tent that stood in the centre.

"Do you not know who I am?" Hermione questioned, glaring. The auror audibly gulped.

"Yes. I do, Miss Granger." He stuttered.

"Then. Let. Me. In."

"I'm afraid I can't. It goes aga-" He was interrupted by the Head Auror.

"Travers, what seems to be the probl- Hermione?" Harry looked at Hermione incredulously. Noticing Hermione's scowl, he sighed and rubbed his head. "Hermione what are you doing here?"

"I'm here to take a look at it, Harry." Hermione put it simply.

Harry was taken aback. "How did you know about it? Only the Auror department and the Minister of Magic knows about it..."

Hermione hesitated. "I'm the smartest witch of the age Harry. I have my ways."

"Well you should probably stop using those ways. You'll get in trouble if you keep it up."

"You didn't complain when I was using them to help you!" Hermione snapped back. "You know what? Forget it. I already know what it is."

"How? We haven't been able to identify it."

"Really? Nobody smart enough?" Hermione smirked.

"Hermione." Harry frowned disapprovingly at his best friend. He didn't know what was going on with her. She'd been different since the end of the war, and Harry had been trying for the last 2 years to find out what was wrong, but she got colder whenever he or anyone else asked. They had all wondered if it was because he had died.

"Let me look at it. I'll confirm my suspicions while you finally have an answer." She paused. "Besides everyone here could probably benefit from seeing someone intelligent at work. It'll work wonders for their small brains."

Harry continued to frown. "Fine. But you must not tell anyone about what is here."

Hermione nodded. "I won't." She shoved the auror, whose name appeared to be Travers, as she walked past him. Harry laid a hand on her shoulder.

"How did you find out about this, 'Mione?" She flinched slightly at the use of the nickname, she had grown to dislike it recently.

"I'm afraid if I told you, I'd have to kill you." Harry raised an amused eyebrow at Hermione's solemn face. "Also, it's not exactly hard to figure out something happened when there are a whole lot of aurors running to one spot."

Harry opened the flap of the tent and let Hermione step inside. He watched to see her reaction at what could be seen before them.
