Take a Bow-Chapter One

How about a round of applause
Yeah…
Standing ovation
Oohhhh… yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hermione ran into her room, frustration and anger coursing through her vains. She fell onto her bed, letting out a grunt. Being home during the summer was supposed to be fun and relaxing. She looked out the window behind her bed and saw him still standing below. She grunted again and let her head fall on her pillows.

You look so dumb right now
Standing outside my house
Trying to apologize
You’re so ugly when you cry
Please, just cut it out

He still have the roses and the chocolates that had “I’m Sorry” written across the box in his hands. When she had opened the door, the sight sickened her. How did he even have the audacity to even come here after what he did?

She was using all her will-power she had not to curse him into oblivion. Her head jerked up as a snowy white owl flew in her window. She jumped up and took the letter off Hedwig’s foot then the owl flew off.

“Wait! How am I…?” Hermione sighed as her attempts went unheard by the disappearing owl.

She sat down and read the quick letter that Harry had sent her in response to her emergency letter she a sent a little bit ago, right after he showed up.

Hermione,

Calm down, it’s ok to be mad after what he did, just don’t curse him! I’m sorry if Hedwig flies off, she’s a bit irritated with me. Just banish your response to me. If I need to, I’ll come hang out with you for a bit. It’s good to be 17! Just let me know if it’s clear.

Harry

“Oh thank you!” she said as she grabbed a piece of parchment and scribbled “Clear!” on it then banished it to Harry.

Don’t tell me you’re sorry cause you’re not
And baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught
But you put on quite a show
You really had me going
But now it’s time to go
Curtain’s finally closing
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it’s over now
Go on and take a bow

Not even 3 minutes later, Harry was standing in the middle of her room.

“Oh thank you Harry! I really don’t think I can control myself much longer!” she said as she sat back down on her bed.

Harry chuckled. “Where is he?”

Hermione pointed out the window.

Grab your clothes and get gone
You better hurry up before the sprinklers come on
Talking about, girl, I love you, you’re the one
This just looks like a re-run
Please, what else is on

Harry walked over and leaned over the corner of her bed and out the window. Sure enough, he was standing down there, hanging his head. Harry laughed again then sat down next to Hermione.

“Well, I don’t know how you should handle this either except just wait until he goes away. They call you the brains of the trio for a reason,” Harry said grinning as he put an arm around her shoulders.

Suddenly a loud scream came from down below and both teens jumped up and looked out the window to see Hermione’s ex-boyfriend running away and sprinklers watering the lawn. Both of them cracked up laughing and fell back onto Hermione’s bed.

Mrs. Granger walked in. “What is all the laughing about? And the screaming? How did you get here?”

“Oh, sorry mum. I asked Harry to come over to help me out. He’s a wizard too, so he came…the wizard way,” Hermione explained, not quite sure how to explain to her mother how he had gotten here.

“Oh, alright. Well, would you like to stay for dinner then?” Mrs. Granger offered.

Don’t tell me you’re sorry cause you’re not
And baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught
But you put on quite a show
You really had me going
But now it’s time to go
Curtain’s finally closing
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it’s over now
Go on and take a bow

“Oh, ummm,” Harry said, looking over at Hermione, who was nodding her head. “Alright, sure.”

“Excellent. We’ll finally get to meet this Harry Potter Hermione is always talking about,” Mrs. Granger said as she left.

Harry grinned as he turned to look at Hermione. “You talk about me a lot eh?”

“Well not a lot, just a little bit but I mean you’re my best friend. What do you expect?” Hermione rambled as her face flushed a bit.

“Uhhuh,” he said, .

And the award for, the best lie goes to you
For making me believe that you could be
Faithful to me
Let’s hear your speech ohh

He suddenly grinned then looked back at Hermione, who was watching her feet swinging. Suddenly he sprung on her, tickling her madly.

“Harry, stop!” Hermione screamed.

Hermione fell backwards onto her pillows, Harry still tickling her. Finally, she got a hold of his wrists, stopping him.

They both stopped laughing but were panting for breath. Their eyes caught each other’s and held the gaze. Harry’s face slowly lowered until he was about an inch from Hermione’s. She could feel his breath bathing her face.

“Hermione…” he whispered.

This seemed to break her of a trance. “Uhh Harry, I’ve gotta do something really quick, hold on.”

Hermione wormed her way away from Harry and disappeared out of the room, leaving Harry very confused.

Hermione ran into her bathroom then closed and locked the door behind her. She balanced her hands on the side of the sink, examining herself in the mirror. Her face was as red as an apple.

She sighed and bowed her head. The last thing she needed was for Harry to almost kiss her, but it was the first thing she wanted. She groaned as she washer her hands and patted her face down with a cold towel, a mental battle raging inside her head. Then one side won.

“Aww screw it!”

She threw the door open, ran down the hall, into her room where Harry was looking at all the books on her selves.

“Harry,” she said, walking over to him as he turned towards her.

“Yeah, wha…”

She cut him off by crashing her lips onto his. He was shocked at first, but eventually he started kissing her back until she pulled back.

“I needed that,” he said smiling.

“Me too.”

Don’t tell me you’re sorry cause you’re not
And baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught
But you put on quite a show
You really had me going
But now it’s time to go
Curtain’s finally closing
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it’s over now
Go on and take a bow
