Author: rzzmg
Characters: Hermione Granger x Draco Malfoy (main pairing), Ginny Weasley, Blaise Zabini, Ron Weasley
Genres: Drama, Romance, Angst
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 395 (this chapter)
Summary: Post-Hogwarts. Novel compliant, but discards Epilogue (EWE format). It was only supposed to be one night - a set-up with a hot guy at a fetish club in Muggle London for some mind-blowing, no-strings-attached sex where Hermione would play the submissive role. However, when her amazingly skilled and sensual partner, Draco Malfoy, kept sending her tickets and roses to return to the club to meet again and again, how could a single, sexually-experimental girl say 'no'? Hermione's about to learn the hard way that the sins of the flesh can prove to be too tempting for the body - and the heart - to resist.
Warnings: Very explicit sexual situations, alcohol consumption, profanity.
Disclaimer: I do not own “Harry Potter,” nor any of its characters, nor do I profit in any way from the use of said characters and situations in this writing.

CHAPTER THIRTEEN



The Ministry of Magic


London, England


November 19, 2003 – Wednesday Morning




Ginny entered my office that morning with a copy of the paper. Silently, she passed it to me, her face grim.




Malfoy Heir To Wed




Astoria positively gloated in the picture below, her arm entwined like a serpent’s through Draco’s, the other showing off a fecking huge emerald and diamond engagement ring on her left hand. Her fiancé looked his typical gorgeous self – and utterly disinterested with the fanfare of the press release.



He was marrying her to get over me. I knew it as assuredly as I’d known he’d been at my flat the other night waiting for me. That meant he had feelings for me that went deeper than what he’d professed. How deep, I didn’t know, but it was enough to push him into that venomous troll’s arms. The kiss he’d seen between Daniel and I had most likely been the deciding factor for him; I’d obviously moved on, so he should too, right?



This shouldn’t affect me. Draco was a grown man, and if he wanted to make mistakes of epic proportion and bugger up his life then that was his fault. I’d given him a chance and he’d turned me down. I shouldn’t care in the least.



But I did.



Worse, I more than cared – I hurt knowing his stubbornness had brought us to this place where neither of us was truly happy.



I put the paper down and pressed my face into my hands, breaking into a full-on fit, complete with muffled screams of frustration and tears of bitter anger. Ginny immediately locked my door, owl’d a memo to her boss that she was out on business, and ran interference on any of my work-related matters for the rest of the day. She ordered us take-away lunch from the Ministry cafeteria, and me a pint of Fortescue’s Strawberry-Vanilla Swirl. She stayed with me every step of the way, holding me and letting me get the poison of sharp envy and biting regret out of my system.



I didn’t go home until late that night to avoid anyone in the building possibly seeing me in such a state, and with that stupid newspaper firmly in hand. Not even Gin dared take it from my grip.
