"I thought you . . . were engaged to . . . Draco," Hermione said, afterwards.

Astoria shrugged. "Aren't you and Weasley engaged?"

"We are, but—"

"But you ended up shagging a Slytherin in secret instead of speaking at another school event for the castle's donors. Why?"

"You're not boring."

"Weasley is?" asked Astoria, straightening her clothing.

"No, but the donors are."

"Ah, well, life is short. We should enjoy it."

Hermione caught Astoria's hand in hers. "Will, er, this happen again?"

"Don't think, Granger, just answer: Ron's cock, or my tongue?"


Releasing Hermione's hand, Astoria said, "It won't happen again, but I did enjoy you."
