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.
Hermione could help herself, she started laughing as Harry shouted and hugged her. She hugged him back tightly, “Thanks Harry!” She gave him a huge smile. “I just wanted to tell you before you heard it from anyone else around the school. You know how fast rumors spread around here” She laughed as she sat back down.
Harry nearly grimaced but he was too happy for his friends. “Hopefully, not too fast.” He murmured as he blushed. “Well it wouldn’t be so bad if people knew you two were going out right? Everyone saw it coming.” He laughed.
Hermione blushed. ‘Everyone?’ She thought to herself. “I guess it wouldn’t be too bad when people find out. I just don’t want everyone to make a big deal out of it, ya know?” Hermione said. She never liked being the center of attention and if people began hearing, she was positive everyone would make a big deal out of it. But then again with Ron by her side she felt like she could do anything.
"Probably only in a good way, Hermione. Don’t worry. Everything will be fine with you two…i mean you do have mushy catching up to do." He chuckled. "Really. I’m so happy for you guys. It’ll be great." 'Hopefully i won't be a third wheel' He hated to think it but he really was happy for them. Who wouldn’t be happy seeing both of their best friends finally happy.
