Hermione had a free period while Ron was at transfiguration. She decided to take the time to work on their potion essay, Ron and her might be dating but she still did his homework. She walked into the library and over to her normal table in the back corner by the windows. But before she sat down she noticed another bag sitting on the table, it looked familiar. As she looked closer to it, she noticed it was Harry’s bag. Hermione decided to just sit and wait for him to come back, she wanted to tell him about her and Ron so he wouldn’t be surprised if he caught them snogging.
As Hermione opened her potions book to read, Harry sat back down. “Hey Harry” Hermione whispered and smiled at him. “What’s up?” She asked him as he looked at her.
Harry had been trying to focus on his homework, it wasn’t coming easily because he kept thinking about Malfoy. Nono he kept thinking about Malfoy’s p- yeah that. Not Malfoy. Nono. He left the table to splash some cold wate ron his fce in an attempt to calm down a bit. Gratefully it worked. When he came back he saw Hermione there and replied when she greeted him. “Heya Hermione!” he greeted, trying to sound normal.
She already knew about the snogging that happened but he didn’t want to give a clue that he had…well…..Seen more of Malfoy that he thought he cared to. “Nothing much.” he continued. “Just trying to do my own work.” he finished with a warm smile.
Hermione nodded as her friend answered her question. “Yeah.. I’m trying to do Ron’s homework. This potions essay is due tomorrow.” She looked at him warmly. “I actually am glad you’re here, I wanted to tell you something.” She said a bit nervously. She knew Harry would be happy about her and Ron were happy and together but she didn’t know how to tell him.
If Harry knew anyone he knew his two best friends. “You look content… Did you get 20 point extra credit on something?” he chuckled. “Go on. You can tell me. Thanks for listening the other day by the way.”
Hermione laughed, “No I didn’t get extra credit.” She smiled, “You’re welcome by the way” She said. Hermione drew in a deep breath and just let it out, “Well Ron and I were talking and well, we ended up realizing our feelings toward each other. And well.. we’re together.” She smiled and looked at her hands. She got butterflies in her stomach just thinking about Ron.
"…YES!! FINALLY!" He quickly quieted himself when Madame Pince, as usual appeared out of nowhere and sent him a glare. He hugger Hermione tight in genuine happiness for his friends. "I was almost worried. It’s about time Hermione!" He had a huge smile on his face.
