Chapter 1:Seasons of Love

Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Six hundred minutes,

Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Moments so dear.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Six hundred minutes

How do you measure, measure a year?



Hermione Granger couldn't believe how much has changed in one year. She went from living amongst Muggles and not using an ounce of magic to using magic everyday back in the Wizarding World. To top it all off, she was engaged;not to Ron Weasley but to his brother, Fred Weasley.



In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights

In cups of coffee,

In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife?



Ron left her depressed and heartbroken while Fred was there to make her smile and get over Ron. As she got over Ron with Fred's help, she began to fall for the Weasley twin. Only after a kiss from Fred did Hermione realize she loved him. Shortly after, they began living together in the flat above Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes with George. Currently, they still live there but now Fred and Hermione are engaged to be married.


In five hundred twenty-five thousand

Six hundred minutes

How do you measure

A year in the life?



Hermione couldn't measure how much her life had began to change with Fred. She was smiling and laughing more than she ever did with Ron. Ron? That name struck a chord in Hermione's mind along with memories from the last time she saw him.


"Hey sweetie," Fred kissed Hermione. She smiled up at Fred. "You know I love you more than anything," Fred was feeling confused on what to say next as Hermione nodded,"Well," he discretely pulled the box out of his pocket and went down on one knee,"Hermione Granger, will you marry me?" he closed his eyes as he opened the box to show the simple yet beautiful ring inside. It was silent for a few minutes. Fred peeked and opened his eyes to look at Hermione. Her hand was across her mouth, tears welled up in her eyes,"Yes," she said quietly. Fred stood up again and they kissed. Fred heard applause coming from where George, Harry, Ginny and Bill were, growing steadily louder. As they broke apart, everyone was looking at them including Ron, who looked stunned. Fred turned to George and found everyone staring at them,"She said yes." The group cheered as Hermione slipped on her engagement ring. She saw Ron looking slightly hurt and she acted like everything was fine. She was confused now. If Ron saw this and didn't like it even though he was married to Lavender, what did this mean for them now?

How about love?

How about love?

How about love? Measure in love?


Hermione stared at the table in front of her. She was sitting on the couch trying to think about why Ron would leave her, then show some interest in her once she is engaged while he is married and his wife is hugely pregnant? This confused Hermione. She let out a sigh, stood up and walked to the bathroom. She placed both of her hands around the sink. Her eyes lingered on the ring on her left hand and her gaze went up to the mirror to see herself.


Her hair was now past her shoulders and was curly today. Her eyes were the same shade of chocolate brown but they seemed brighter when she wasn't thinking about Ron's reaction. She wished Fred and George came upstairs already; Hermione loved their aura of happiness and mischief.

Footsteps were heard coming up to the flat.

"It will be perfect by spring. Trust me."

"I know Georgie. You sure you can handle this by-"

"Yes. I can. I've got everything under control."

The door opened to show a grinning George and Fred furrowing his brow. The two Weasley twins walked into the living room,"Hermione, we're back," George called. Hermione quickly put a smile on her face and walked out of the bathroom towards the two men, beaming. She kissed Fred and asked,"Have a good day in the shop?" George rolled his eyes at Fred's answer,"A great day like usual." Fred smiled down at his fiancé,"How about you?" 

"Fine," Hermione said half-heartedly.

"What's wrong?" Fred asked with concern.

"Just thinking about how much I miss my parents..." Hermione looked away from the two Weasleys.

"Wait, weren't you able to lift the charm off them once the War was over?" George asked.

Hermione cried not answering his question.

"What's wrong, love?" Fred now asked.

"I'd rather not say," Hermione told them as she wiped the tears from her eyes, walking to the kitchen to grab a glass of water. Both twins looked at each other with sadness and went to go comfort Hermione. 

Hermione tried not to think of her parents and she admitted to herself that they were the first thing to enter her mind. She didn't want Fred to know Ron's reaction. Ron and her parents gone, the worst parts of her life. 



Hermione was with Ron watching a movie in her old flat. Ron had his arm around Hermione and she held his hand. Knock, knock. Hermione stood up to check who was at the door. Through the peephole she saw it was blonde woman with glasses who worked in the Ministry. She opened the door with caution.

"Hermione Granger?" 

"Yes. That's me."

"I'm Leslie Schmidt," she shook Hermione's hand,"I work for the Ministry. May I come in?"

"Of course," Hermione was confused. The War was over and she knew Death Eaters were going to target her, Harry and Ron. Why would the Ministry tell them again to be on guard for Death Eaters?

Ron turned down the T.V. volume and looked at the two women. "She's with the Ministry," Hermione answered Ron's question. The women sat at the table, Leslie took off her glasses and rubbed her temples. She put on her glasses again. "I've got some bad news," Leslie spoke to Hermione.

"What's happened? Is Harry okay?" Hermione questioned.

"No. Mr. Potter is fine. This is about your parents."

Hermione's heart skipped a beat,"What happened?"

"After you restored their memories, they were murdered."

Hermione was speechless and began crying. Ron walked over to where the women were, pulled up a chair and began comforting Hermione.

This can't be happening. They were fine last week, she remembered. "I'm sorry for your loss. They left you the rest of their money in hopes of it helping you paying for training programs for whichever career you choose. Would you-"

"I'd like to put it in Gringotts."

Leslie nodded,"Have a nice day." Leslie disappeared with a pop.

Hermione began crying harder and Ron comforted her.

------------------------------------------End of Flashback-----------------------------------------------

Ron was there when that happened. Ron, Ron, Ron. Hermione was thinking about him again. Why? 

Hermione felt a familiar pair of arms around her and someone kissed her. "It's ok 'Mione," Fred said. Hermione faced Fred and embraced him very tight. She felt better for the moment.


Later that evening, Fred and George went out to grab some takeout for the three of them. Hermione stayed behind. She needed some time to her thoughts. She heard an owl pecking the window. As she walked to the window she saw a familiar owl with a letter attached addressed to her. She opened the window to let the owl in. The owl landed on the table and Hermione took the note. She opened the note and the owl left. As she read the first line, she recognized his writing.





We need to talk soon. Tomorrow. Meet me at Flourish and Blotts at noon.



Hermione stared at the note and put it in her pocket. She decided she was going to meet Ron tomorrow.


I hope you enjoyed the first chapter. Tell me how it was, if it was choppy or whatever. I need to know your thoughts! I'm curious haha. Cheers!
