Sorry this is SO long! Hermione wanted to say it all at once.
Hermione tilted her head slightly. She wasn't sure what sort of answer she'd expected, but Ask me later wasn't it. Though, for some reason, it seemed to suit him. She imagined the difficult time he must be having and wished there was something she could do.
"No, it's alright," Hermione said, moving to why they were really there. She sighed slightly and straightened herself out. "I can tell you quite a bit. Maybe you'll find something helpful; no one here did." She said with a gesture of the hand to indicate she was talking about the Ministry. "But I'm going to go through it all at once so I don't miss anything if that's alright with you. It'd be easier that way." After a moment, she began.
"Sally Anne wrote me when this all began, not long after people started losing their magic. We both had lost ours and she wanted to get checked up at St. Mungos, like they were telling everyone to do." Hermione scratched a spot on her shoulder for a moment, going through the events which constantly flashed through her mind. "We were going to meet outside Mungos, but we ended up finding each other on the street. I had some tea; Sally Anne wanted some, so we were going to make a stop to get her some as well. She was very anxious about the whole thing. So was I." Hermione bit her lower lip slightly; this was where the trouble started. "There was a cat," She said, scrunching her nose slightly. "We were walking past an alley, and I heard a noise. It turned out to be an injured cat crying. I wasn't so keen on the idea, but Sally Anne went to go check on it, and..." Hermione trailed off. "That was when they came." She sighed, eyes glancing down to her fidgeting fingers. "There was only one at first; they..grabbed Sally Anne. I tried to get her away, but my magic...I started throwing bricks." Her tone was bittersweet. "Probably the stupidest thing I've done...but I couldn't just leave her. We both tried." For the first time since she'd started, Hermione looked at Christopher. A part of her felt it was necessary to let him know they'd tried to get away. "Then the second one came and grabbed me from behind. After that, well..." She looked down. "Here we are."
