Summary: What started out as a release from the misery of their lives grew into a symbiotic need for each other...perhaps even more than that. But his lies and his betrayal led to the end of them and his only solace.
As Draco works up the courage to explain himself to Granger, he thinks back to the start of it all and how they used to be. Will he be able to persuade her to come back to him? Or is he so far down the path of no return that redemption is no longer an option?
Oh. My. God. I seriously started crying while reading this. So amazing, be proud!! I am completely obsessed with this. Words cannot convey. You capture Hermione's essence and intelligence so well...it's mind-boggling. Again, wonderful job with this, it's absolutely beautiful.
Author's Response: Aw, I'm sorry for making you cry - but I hope you enjoyed it still. I'm glad you thought I managed to maintain characterisation - I was worried I was going to lose it a bit in the plot. Thank you so much for your kind review! I'm currently working on a one-shot that can work as a companion to this one - I couldn't quite let this story go!
