A/N I would like to dedicate this chapter to my friends Aby and Julia (tessturtletown71) and my first and only commenter, so far, watermelonwolf123. These three have given me the ideas for most - if not all - of this chapter. So, thank you and hope you enjoy!
"Blaise, I need help." Draco ran to catch up with him.
"With what? Granger, still making you sleep on the couch?"
"Well, it does have to do with her. But it's something else,"
"Well, you know how I told you that the story about how Weasley died that's in the news is fake," Draco rushed.
"Yeah," Blaise said slowly.
"Hermione's worried that people will find out that it's fake and that it will land us in Azkaban-"
"Why would this land you in Azkaban?"
"I'll tell you later, it's not important. So, I need you to make up a new story and send it to the Daily Prophet. You can do it anonymously; I really do not care right now but please. Please, Blaise, you have to do it," Draco begged.
"Dam. You really care about her." Draco nodded sheepishly. "I'll do it on one condition. You convince Weaselette to a. stop treating me like I am the scum of the earth and b. let me sleep on the bed for once,"
"I'll do it, just get this done for me. Please?" Draco told him.
"Just get this done for me first, then we'll see" Blaise smirked and walked away.
Draco was able to catch Ginny as they were both walking to Defense Against the Dark Arts.
"Ginny, I need a huge favor," Draco told her.
"What," she said dryly.
"I need you to treat Blaise like a human being and let him sleep on the bed for once. Please,"
"And why should I do either of those things?"
"Because Blaise actually really likes you but he's too scared to tell you,"
"So why isn't he just getting over it and telling me himself"
"He's a lot more sensitive than he seems and I owe him a favor. Just please, let him prove himself to you. He's not the slimy git you think he is,"
"Ugh, fine I'll talk to him, but you owe me big time," and with that Ginny walked into the classroom.
Draco leaned over to Blaise during class, "Hey, I talked to Ginny,"
"And what did she say"
"She said she would talk to you"
"K, I suppose I have to do that thing you want me to do now"
"Yep," Draco replied smugly.
"You know Draco, I can't even see you and I know you're smirking"
"Yeah, yeah, whatever"
At one in the morning an ear-splitting, blood-curdling scream was heard in Hermione's and Draco's room. Draco woke with a start. It was Hermione, she was thrashing around in the middle of a nightmare. "Hermione! Hermione, wake up!" Draco yelled.
Slowly Hermione calmed and woke up. "I had another nightmare, didn't I?" she asked softly.
"Yeah, want to talk about it?"
Hermione looked at him like he had just sprouted three heads.
Draco just sighed, "It's what my mother always said, and surprisingly it helps."
"Okay" Hermione laid her head on Draco's chest. "It's about that letter I got earlier. It was from the Ministry. When me, Harry, and Ron went Horcrux hunting I oblivated my parents to keep them safe, and the Ministry went looking for them. I made them think it was their life dream to move to Austrailia."
"Did they find them?"
"Yes, they found them dead," Hermione sobbed. "The letter said that it wasn't magic. Apparently, they had won the lottery and then a month later, they were robbed and killed."
"Yeah..." then Hermione fell asleep.

Longest chapter yet! So, I made Y'all wait till the very end to figure out what the letter said. I know, I know, you are all probably very mad at me but doing it that way was important. Mainly for chronological purposes, but whatever you'll thank me later. Thank you for over 550 reads! That means a lot, seriously. And I have y'all keep commenting! I love the feedback i've been getting and that's just from one person, so keep it up.Well, that's all for today! Have a great night, day, evening, morning, whatever.-M
