Friendship for Years
Hermione returns to Hogwarts along with the rest of the seventh years. Only problem...Lavender Brown and Ron are dating again, leaving Hermione crushed.
Draco, meanwhile, is suffering a crush. On the Mudblood of all people. He's never had any feeling like this. What he had with Pansy wasn't like this. His heart never raced or stopped when she was around, and it certainly didn't HURT....his answer is friendship with the girl, but is that enough for him, or does he want more. Well of course he does...but if Hermione wants more is another question.
