Don't mess with Hermione

Hermione was fuming as she dressed herself while Ginny just stood there watching. They were locked in her room now and Ginny wasn't sure if she should stay or not. She'd never seen her friend so angry. Not even at Ron…and that was pretty bad.

"Hermione, maybe you should just relax a bit…"

"RELAX?" she screeched. "I am not going to relax until Professor Snape gets his head out of his ass! I'm going to hex his bits off! I'm going to make him scream, cry, and regret the day he ever pissed me off!"

Ginny backed away a few feet just as a safety precaution. She wondered if it was even possible to make Snape scream and cry. She pursed her lips as Hermione prowled around the bedroom looking for one of her socks.

"Ok…so what are you going to do? Really?" Ginny asked.

"I'm going to embarrass him like he has done to me. I'm sure everyone will be shocked to find out that Professor Snape has an embarrassing little secret. Something that is completely un-Snape-like," Hermione replied smugly.

"Tell me!" Ginny said excitedly.

"I'll do better than that. I'll show you. All of you," she replied and walked with her red-headed friend to the Great Hall.

Severus was sitting at the Head Table looking somewhat nervous. He had to admit that Hermione Granger was a force to be reckoned with. He had wanted to kiss her so badly, but couldn't get up the nerve to finish the task after her friends had walked in on them. He didn't know why he was making things so difficult. It would just be easier to tell the girl that he was in love with her and get on with it, but his pride kept him in check. He didn't want to look weak.

Alright…where is she? That insufferable little chit is not going to get the best of me…

Severus scanned the Hall for any sign of her, but she was nowhere to be seen. The students were all sitting at their tables eating without a care in the world. He heard the door behind him open and whirled to see Albus and Minerva walk in looking quite frazzled. Albus's beard looked as if it hadn't been brushed in ages and Minerva's hair wasn't much better. He did notice however that while Minerva was smiling like an idiot, Albus was shooting him glares. Severus merely raised a brow.

"So Severus, where is our dear Miss Granger?" Minerva asked all too sweetly.

"How the hell should I know?" he replied bitterly. Albus gave him a withering look.

"Severus, if I may say so…"

"You always do." Albus glared.

"I believe that you should not anger Miss Granger like you have been lately. She did after all take good care of you."

"Why are you telling me this?"

"Because I can. Oh and another thing, I haven't been able to rest since you gave Minerva that potion so when Miss Granger decides to…teach you a lesson, I am going to do nothing to help you."

"What lesson?" Severus asked coolly, but his eyes betrayed his unease. Suddenly, Albus's eyes nearly twinkled out of their sockets, but he did not reply. "What lesson, Albus? I am a Professor and I will not have a student teaching me anything!" He froze when he felt hands slide up his frock coat suddenly and someone's breath against his ear.

"Then perhaps you should have thought about playing games with me," Hermione whispered in his ear. Severus meant to jump away from her, but it was too late. All the students had seen her grab him and were shocked at her boldness. Hermione's fingers dug into the soft flesh of his side and she began to tickle him like no one had ever done before.
