WIP of the next Lillian Chapter, where Hermione meets old friends who feel betrayed.
Lillian and Draco decided to make the best use of the Holidays possible, the last thing they needed was to keep worrying over the Dark Lord's plan, but before they could leave, Hermione called out to them. "Lillian, wait! I need to talk to you." She said, hurrying to catch up to her. "Look, I know things are tense and awkward, but I promise you, I am still the same person I was before. I told the truth in my speech, my identity was hidden for my protection. And Draco, I hope that as my true identity, we can become friends, not hating each other like before."

Lillian thought about it for some time, but eventually spoke up. "I understand, I hope we can still be friends Hermione, and I don't see a better chance then going to Diagon Alley, but aren't you worried about the publicity? What people will say about you? About your father? And don't they have an arrest warrant for you?" Lillian found herself becoming concerned for Hermione the more they talked. Maybe things would turn out just fine between them.

"The Ministry will have to remove it sooner or later. They can't prove I've committed any sort of crime, and they're to busy focusing on their political careers. Arresting a teenager because of her father will only drive more people to us." Hermione replied. "Plus we won't be alone. Father knows where I am going, no doubt there will be Death Eaters lurking in the shadows. But if you're still concerned, it wouldn't hurt to invite some of your other friends. I'm going to have to meet them sooner or later anyway."

Just to be sure, Lillian sent letters to Blaise, Theo, Daphne, asking them to meet them at Diagon Alley, then using a Port Key to transport themselves there. As they entered, they found it quiet, almost depressing. Some shops had boarded up out of fear, some they knew had been raided by Death Eaters, others had been raided by the Ministry. Some shops were still open though, but what surprised Lillian was how Hermione felt.

It was obvious to everyone this wasn't Hermione's expectation. "I thought it would be happier, more cheerful then this... ." She said, looking at what was once Florian Fortescue's ice cream store. The only major places that were still running were Gringott's and the Weasley Twin's Shop. That was were they spotted a red headed girl on the war path, wand out and pointing at them.

Ginny had been warned by her brothers and friends not to confront Hermione, not to confront her old friend, but she was upset, and felt betrayed. The whole time Hermione had been the daughter of Voldemort. And Lillian had been working with her the whole time! This whole time she had been used, manipulated. Well, she wanted answers, and she planned to get them. "You, I want an explanation, now! Give me a good reason I shouldn't call the Aurors to have you all arrested!" She said, pointing the wand directly at Hermione.

"If you want to call the Aurors, do it. It'll just be another political arrest, that's all Scrimgeour does these days. The mere thought that one could be a Death Eater has neighbours, family and friends turning on each other, but all those who get arrested are nobodies or Scrimgeour's rivals." Hermione said, obviously upset about the wand in her face. "I don't have the time to give you an explanation on the streets, but we can meet in a neutral location, and I can explain. I'll even invite some other friends of ours like Susan. Now get that wand out of my face!"

Ginny was suspicious of the offer, and didn't trust Hermione, but she could see the situation she put herself in. "Fine, but I warn you, if I don't find your explanation satisfying, or I think you're lying, I'll take you down." She said, removing her wand from Hermione's face and storming off.

Blaise, Theo and Daphne had all been watching from the side, and now linked up with the main group. "This is.... unique. It's good to see you Hermione, Lillian, Draco. Sorry I kept out of your argument but I don't think Ginny wants to see me right now." Blaise said. "Hate to see her go, but I do love to watch her leave."

"Blaise now isn't the time for your girlfriend problems. It's good to see you Hermione, I realise during our time at Hogwarts we didn't get along until recently, but I plan to get to know you a lot better
