The next day, Arthur and Molly went with the trio plus Ginny to Diagon Alley. They were to buy new school robes, as they had grown up. And of course, the school books for their 7th year. They went to the Gringotts to draw some money. While the Weasleys went to their vault, Harry and Hermione went to theirs. After this, they decided to go to Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions, to have their school robes. Next, they went to Flourish & Blotts to pick up their books. After their little shopping, Harry and Ron went to Quality Quidditch Supplies to see if there were new brooms or buying some gloves.
The girls after leaving Flourish & Blotts went to eat an ice cream at Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour while waiting for the boys. Ginny was a little reluctant to wait for them as she wasn’t too keen on waiting for Potter as it was what she called him. Ten minutes later, Arthur and Molly appeared and joined them at the table. They only had to wait five more minutes until the boys came. They explained the reason of them being late was because they were at the Quidditch store and didn’t notice the time.
Ginny rolled her eyes at Harry’s explanation but didn’t say anything as she didn’t want to start an argument while they were on the street. They all ate their ice creams and left Diagon Alley. As soon as they arrived to The Burrow, Ginny went straight to her room with Hermione behind her. Hermione knew Ginny’s temper and as soon as she finished putting the silencing charm, Ginny started to talk (and quite loudly) about Harry being Head Boy and how he didn’t deserved it. Hermione shook her head at this. She knew that Ginny, deep down still liked Harry, but Ginny wouldn’t admit that. Hermione knew if she said that to her, she would receive a bat-bogey hex.
“Hermione, were you listening to what I said?” Ginny asked her with an annoyed look.
Hermione shook her head. “Sorry. I was just thinking.” Ginny threw a glare.
“Maybe if you didn’t thought so much about my dear brother, you would have listen Potter calling you.”
Hermione took a deep breath. “Ginny, when are you going to stop hating Harry so much? He didn’t know the bucket would be cursed. He told me the twins said to him that they would be giving a splash to the students.”
“Oh please Hermione! He chose to prank with them when he could clearly say he wasn’t in the mood or something.” Ginny stated furiously.
“Okay Ginny. I see this is going to a dead end so it’s better if we forget this. Why don’t we go downstairs?” Hermione asked starting to calm down.
“No thanks I don’t want to run into Potter. “I’ll stay here reading this magazine about Quidditch so you can go downstairs alone. Don’t take me wrong Hermione, it’s just I don’t want to have a headache because you know that we are going to argue.” She said making an excuse. Hermione saw that she wanted to avoid Harry as she could and nodded. They would have to make up after all these years of “hating” each other.
As she was going down the stairs, she felt someone grab her waist and pulling her. She screamed but someone put his hand over her mouth. He then turned her around and Hermione saw who had scared her. Her dear boyfriend Ron Weasley; he was smirking at the look on Hermione’s face. “Ronald Weasley! How dare you scaring me like that?” she asked incredulously.
“What. I have my right to spend some time with my beautiful girlfriend haven’t I?”
Hermione threw Ron a glare as she was blushing slightly. “Yes you do but you can’t scare me like that!”
“I’m sorry. I love you?” he said playfully. Hermione smiled and kissed him passionately. He kissed her back as passionately as he could. She wrapped her arms around his neck and kept running her fingers through his hair. Ron moaned as she was doing this and wrapped his arms around her waist. Suddenly he lifted her up and she put her legs around his waist. They kept kissing as Ron took the two of them to his bed. When they fell on his bed, Ron was on top of Hermione and running his fingers all over her body. He loved her so much that he wondered why of so many blokes, she chose him. Him, of all people; Ron started to kiss Hermione on her neck and she moaned his name when he did it.
Suddenly they heard footsteps and had to break apart. They tried to fix themselves, such as Ron fixing up his t-shirt or Hermione trying to fix up her hair. They were taking deep breaths because the snogging session they were having right now was intense. They were also grinning at each other and looking in each other’s eyes.
“That was great Hermione. Have I mentioned to you that I am completely in love with you?” asked a breathless Ron.
Hermione said to her boyfriend in a playful way. “You have mentioned that sometimes but it doesn’t hurt to hear that once in a while.” Hermione stated softly.
“I love you Hermione Granger.” Ron whispered in her ear.
“And I love you too Ronald Weasley. I love you very much.”
Someone knocked the door and appeared Ginny. She went inside his bedroom and looked at them. She knew they had been snogging because their hairs were messy. Anyway Ginny was bored and so she decided to ask them something.
“Hey guys. What if we...” the question Ginny was going to ask was never heard because Harry Potter opened the door.
“Hey. You two lovebirds how are you?” Harry asked as Ginny was throwing him a cold glare. “We are fine Harry. What about you? Are you okay?” Hermione asked the person she considered a brother. “Yeah I’m okay. Listen, do you...”
“Potter... what are you doing here?” Ginny asked with a cold tone.
“Why do you care Weasley? Harry asked with the same cold tone. “Are you starting to like me Weasley?” he asked as he was starting to smirk.
“In your dreams Potter, I was going to ask my brother and best friend if they wanted to join me in a quidditch match.” Hermione started to answer but noticed Ginny’s look which said ‘You better agree with me or else...’ and Hermione was quiet. Both Ron and Hermione knew that an argument was coming, and they felt it was a heavy one so Hermione waved her wand silently as she was of age and an expert on non-verbal spells, to the door. They were quiet during the whole argument and at Ron’s room, only they heard the shouting match between Harry and Ginny.
“And... what do I have to do with it?” Harry asked with his tone starting to rise.
“WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO WITH IT? I CAME HERE FIRST POTTER AND YOU SHOULDN’T BE HERE!” she yelled. By now Harry’s face was starting to get a little red with the argument.
“WHY! I’M RON’S BEST FRIEND AND HE ALWAYS INVITES ME! Don’t forget, your mother likes me and she sees me as one of her own sons.” Harry stated in a low voice.
As their argument kept going, Hermione looked at Ron by the corner of her eye. Fortunately he caught the look so he knew they would talk after Harry and Ginny left his room.
“Hey! I think you two should stop fighting each other and cool off.” Ron exclaimed with a stern look. Harry shook his head slightly and left Ron’s room to go to his room. Ginny glared furiously at her brother and left the room at a quick pace.
“When are these two going to stop fighting?” Hermione asked. “Honestly I don’t know but each year their arguments get worse.” Ron stated before taking a deep breath.
Suddenly Hermione started jumping and Ron thought his girlfriend had finally going mad. “Er... Hermione, why are you jumping?” he asked her curiously. “Ron! I have an idea!” Hermione said in an ecstatic way.
“Well it goes like this...” so Hermione told Ron of her plan. Ron was a little reluctant of agreeing with it but he knew if Hermione suggested it, he knew it would go well, even if it took some time.
