Chapter 4: Explosions
"Ginny, I wonder what Ron's doing? I mean, he can't take care of a child!" Hermione stressed.
"Don't worry. I bet Ron's not blowing the house up!" Ginny said. But what she said was absolutely wrong...
"Ahh...now that Rose is napping, I'll make me a cup of tea and watch what Muggles call tellyvision," Ron said, "Incendio!" But instead of hitting the stove, the spell made the hard wood floor of the Burrow be drowned in flames.
"Okay, lets think...I need to get Rosie out of the house...That's it! I'll floo her to Harry's house!"
"Harry, the Burrow is up in flames and I don't want Rose to be there with me when I deal with the fire. Will you take care of Rose until I can sort matters out?" Ron said, when he and Rose were safely away from the Burrow.
"Sure, but why don't you use the Aguamenti spell?" Harry asked.
"I did before I came here. I'll just have to call Magical Matinence portable from the Ministry, so they can deal with the fire," Ron said.
"Okay, I'll see you later!" Harry said.
"Magical Matinence portable? My house is on fire!" Ron said. But what he didn't know was that he was actually calling Hermione...
"Ginny, I just heard a man that sounded exactly like Ron call me on my cell phone saying that his house was on fire!" Hermione stressed.
"Hermione, I apologize for saying that your house wasn't blowing up! Let's go!" Ginny said.
"Ron, what's going on?" Hermione asked when she and Ginny arrived at the Burrow.
"You're not Magical Matinence!" Ron said.
"That's because you didn't call Magical Matinence, you called me, you nitwit!"
"Look, all I was doing was trying to make a cup of tea since Rosie was napping, and I accidentally cast 'incendio' to the floor, instead of the stove! By the way, Rose is at Harry's place," Ron said.
"It's okay, the only thing that matters is that you're okay," Hermione said, "Look, the bet's off, you won. I was the one who came back, so I was the one who couldn't stay without Rose for a whole day. You didn't mean to call me, so you won fair and square," Hermione said.
"I have to go, so I'll leave you two alone. Bye!" Ginny said.
"I love you, Hermione..."
Diagon Alley, a year later...
"Daddy, can I have one of Uncle George's Pygmy Puffs?" Twelve year old Victiorie asked.
"Sure!" Ron said. It had been a year since his and Hermione's bet, and He, Rose, Victiore, and Hermione were shopping in Diagon Alley for Victiore's second year at Hogwarts.
"Ron, you know that Victiore already has her cat, Midnight, and she doesn't need another pet!" Hermione said.
"Fine, I'll buy it for me, and give it to Victoire," Ron said.
"Okay, she can have it for herself, but she has to take care of it," Hermione said.
"Thanks Mom!" Victiore said.
"I wonder where Rose is..." Ron said...
