Hermione woke smiling as she remembered last night he probably wouldn’t have thought anything of it other than it was a friendly gesture like between siblings but she had surprised herself by having the courage to do it and it made her happy. Very happy. She got up showered and dressed they were off to Hogsmeade today and they’d have their meeting and George would be there. He heard her, he didn’t ignore her, he listened, he tried to help and comfort her that meant the world to her. To have that chance to open up and explain to someone her feelings without worrying about putting a burden on Harry’s already stressful life, without facing Ron’s lack of sensitivity and Ginny was still a year younger she didn’t understand as much about the approaching war. She was very smart but couldn’t yet comprehend the seriousness of these little things she was learning though quickly but it didn’t feel right dumping her problems on her. This made George’s kindness all the more special to her.
Heading down to the Great Hall she saw it was more or less empty everyone was slowly surfacing but at least it would give her a chance to be left alone to her thoughts. She’d been sat there reading when she sensed two people sit either side of her.
“Morning Granger and how’s our favourite bookworm today?” asked Fred taking the book off her to read the cover.
“We managed to tell a few people about the meeting can’t promise you anyone will show up though!”George told her.
“Thanks guys that’s great! Now Fred, give me back my book!” Hermione said reaching out for it.
“Ahh but Hermione dear what makes you so sure I’m Fred?” he asked moving the book out of her reach.
“Because you are!” Hermione sighed.
“So Granger, you truly believe I’m Fred?”
“Yes I do! Now can I have my book back or not?” Hermione asked.
“I really don’t know how she does it, Freddie! Even Mum can’t and mum...well she’s our mum!” George exclaimed.
Hermione rolled her eyes as the twins continued to talk about anything and everything, George sat next to her and Fred beside him. Not long after a group of six came in sitting opposite them giving a chorus of greetings. They were Harry, Ron, Ginny, Neville, Seamus and Dean.
“What’re you two doing here?” asked Ron giving the twins an odd look.
“Oh Ronniekins you’re not happy to see us? I’m so hurt!” George frowned in mock misery.
"You know what I mean you don’t usually sit with us, well you do sort of but more down that way with Lee and the rest of your year Gryffindors,” Ron pointed out.
“Good point Ronald. Oi, Lee get over here!” Fred called down to his best friend, next to George of course.
Lee joined them “Yeah what’s up?” he asked.
“Nothing, Ron thought you might want to sit with us!” George told him.
“Oh cool, thanks,” Lee grinned sitting down next to Fred.
Ron rolled his eyes at his brothers. They all ate the topic of the conversation drifting off to quidditch. Hermione sat quietly reading her book only looking up as Fred, George and Lee stood to leave.
“We’ll see you all later!” George called with a smile as they left his eyes locking on Hermione’s for a moment before his grin widened.
“Alright, spill Hermione what’s going on?” Ginny asked.
“What d’you mean?” she said not looking up from her book.
“You know exactly what I’m talking about, Hermione what’s with the way George was smiling at you?”
“I err don’t know what you mean,” Hermione lied.
“You’re lying to us Hermione!” Harry chimed into the conversation.
“We just had a little talk last night, nothing major,” Hermione shrugged trying to seem as casual as possible but a faint blush gave her away.
“You have a crush on George?!?” Ron whispered in shock.
“No!” Hermione hissed quietly.
“Don’t deny it ’Mione!” Harry said.
“I’m serious guys; I don’t have a crush on George! I err think I’m in love with him,” Hermione told them careful to keep her voice low.
Harry, Ron and Ginny were stunned into silence for a second before Harry finally spoke.
“Wow!” he said “I can honestly say I would never have thought of it!”
“Hermione that’s so sweet! Maybe we’ll be sisters one day!”Ginny squealed.
“I doubt that Ginny, I’m just a bookworm he’ll never see me as anything more! I just can’t change how I feel about him, believe me I tried to deny it to myself for ages but I guess I’ve finally admitted it.”
“I don’t think you’re a particularly good match, know it all and prankster prince not exactly realistic is it?” Ron asked storming out of the Great Hall.
“Wait! Ron, stop! Please just talk to me!” Hermione called after his retreating figure.
He ignored her continuing out of the Great Hall. She didn’t understand, what was wrong with him? Hermione frowned to herself. “What just happened?” she asked Ginny and Harry.
“I err don’t think I should be the one to tell you, you should speak to Ron after he’s cooled down,” Harry told her.
“What d’you mean?” Ginny asked.
“Well err Ron he told me that he-he kind of likes you, Hermione,” Harry said immediately feeling guilty; he’d promised Ron he wouldn’t tell anyone.
“He what?” exclaimed Hermione and Ginny in unison, Ginny almost choking on her juice.
“I think you both heard me,” Harry stated rolling his eyes at their overdramatic reactions.
“Oh no!” Hermione groaned, “This is going to destroy our friendship! I feel terrible I had no idea! I bet he hates me now! Oh Harry, what do I do?”
“Hold on Hermione, he did say it was just a little crush, that he’s not in love with you or anything! You know just a few feelings that are a little more than friendly,” Harry explained.
“Good I can still fix this!” Hermione said determinedly leaving her breakfast on a quest to find Ron.
“Hey Lavender have you seen Ron?”Hermione asked as she entered the Gryffindor common room.
“Yeah he went into the boys’ dormitory looked kind of angry,” Lavender answered her.
“Alright thanks!” Hermione called as she ran off into the boys’ dormitory.
She didn’t bother knocking; he’d say she couldn’t come in if she had anyway. So she pushed open the door and walked inside to find Ron sat on the edge of his bed with his head buried in his hands.
“Go away I just want to be left alone!” he said without looking up.
“Ron it’s me, we have to talk,” Hermione spoke softly.
“Hermione!” he exclaimed, “I’m so sorry I shouldn’t have done that I know but...”
Hermione cut him off, “Don’t be sorry! I’m sorry I didn’t know Ron, honestly I never wanted to hurt you!”
“I know you didn’t want to hurt me, I guess Harry told you. I don’t know why I reacted like that I just-I guess the small part of me who does have slight feelings from you was kind of jealous, especially since it’s my brother!” Ron explained.
“It’s alright Ron but you have to tell me how you feel now!” Hermione told him.
“I just had a think about it and I don’t think I do really have feelings for you like that but you’re like a sister to me! I’m totally ok with how you feel about George I’m glad he makes you happy and now we’re all happy problem gone!” Ron grinned.
Meanwhile Fred and George were leaving the seventh year dorm and walking passed the sixth and fifth year dorms. They heard a very familiar voice speak...
“Ron you’re the best! I love you!” Hermione exclaimed throwing her arms around him.
Fred and George both gaped at the door leading to where the voices were coming from. George felt a sharp pain in his chest he felt his heart drop misery taking over as he pushed passed Fred going into the common room.
