He turned around as he saw the cute girl. She is so beautiful, Liam thought in his head.
He looked at Hermione, and smiled, “it’s going to be fun, hopefully there won’t be drama,”
Hermione smiled and nodded in agreement. “Yeah I hope so too.”
Hermione was going to be late to class but she was turning her entire drawer upside down. Her Gryffindor tie was gone. It was just…not there anymore. She is never irresponsible like this and she knows that the teachers will notice and may give her detention for being out of dress during hours.
She put on the rest of her uniform and cleaned up the disheveled clothes that were on her bed. If it’s not there…where was it? Hermione had to tell herself multiple times to calm down as she exit the Gryffindor common room and to the stairs. She felt someone bumping into her, motioning to go to the side. She looked up to see it was Liam, in his robes but his Slytherin tie was replaced by her Gryffindor tie.
“Liam…what…where…how did you…” Hermione stuttered trying to figure out why he had her tie. Liam smirked and shrugged while fixing it “Don’t you like it?” Hermione had her mouth opened slightly but closed it, not knowing whether to yell at him or to say that she did liked it on him. He took it off and slipped it on her, straightening it out and making it very neat.
“Did anyone…see?” She whispered at him as he put on his original tie. Their relationship was a secret. The whole Romeo and Juliet motif. “Nope. No one noticed.” He said honestly. Liam bent down and kissed the top of her head. “See you in Transfiguration, Granger.” He whispered as he went off to class.
Nothing else mattered. Not their rivalry on who’s the brightest. Not the rivalry against Slytherin and Gryffindor. Not the rivalry of their blood. She wanted him. She wanted this handsome, pureblood, blue eyed, genius wizard.
Liam, eyes still fixed on her, watching her, nervously reading her book again, couldn’t help but get closer to her.
