"Hermione, so are you coming to snuffles's house during Christmas break wit us?"
asked Harry Potter, one of my best friends for the last seven years.
"Well...I guess so, Although my mum and dad will be disappointed that i won't go with them on their cruise, but they'll understand. Quite frankly, I dint see the point of going on a muggle cruise."
"Who knows, but from what dad says muggle cruises are the best," said Ronald Weasley, my other best friend.
"So I guess we're all going to Snuffles's for the holidays," said Harry.
"Yea," cheer Ron and I simultane
"Isn't brilliant to be able to apparate now?" asked Ron as we walked through the Hogwarts ground.
"Yea, way easier. Hermione, when will we be able to apparate?" asked Harry, turning his attention to me.
I don't answer for a couple of seconds but then I say" Here, we're officially out of Hogwarts ground.
We apparate right at the kitchen of number 12 grimmauld place.
There we find Molly and Sirius.
They both welcome us warmly.
Then Sirius finally says, "Well during these months, I've had a bit more cleaning done so you each can have a room of your own,
well actually Hermione, I'm sorry but you'll have to share a room with Ginny.
We just got the word that Shackelbolt's (sp?) nephew, John, will be staying with us also."
"Its ok Sirius."
And with that, we each go to our rooms, but before I can enter my room, Ron stops me.
"Listen, Hermione," I stop and turn around.
"I...um, well actually...oh never mind," and with that he just walks off.
What in the world was that all about? I open the door to Ginny's room and find her in her bed reading a magazine.
"So...Have you heard about John?"
"Oh he's been mentioned here and there," She said, turning a light shade of pink.
"Well ok. I've seen him once and to tell you the truth, he is pretty cute."
"Ok, just donít let Ron hear you say that.Ē
"Trust me, I won't."
"So when's John coming?"
"The day before Christmas," Ginny said with a slight grin.
"So...well, John what year are you in?" Molly asked.
"Well Iím home schooled now but Iím still in year 6."
I glanced at Ginny who can't help but grin, she's also in year 6.
"Oh thatís nice."
"Yea, well listen, Molly, do u mind if I go wash up?
Iím pretty tired from traveling."
"Oh no dear go right ahead"
"Mom I'm pretty beat out too, may I please be excused also?" Ginny asked hurriedly.
"I donít see why not dear."
After about ten minutes I ask to be excused also and leave for my room.
As soon as I open the door, I see Ginny and John kissing passionately.
I clear my throat trying to be heard.
They break apart, then john says, ďUm, I best be going now," and quickly exits the room.
"What was that all about?"
"Too long of a story," replied Ginny before getting into bed.
