It was just another normal day at the burrow; Charlie was playing hide and seek with Fred and George, Percy had his head buried in a book and Ron and Ginny were sat on the kitchen floor with an enchanted version of the tales of beedle the bard that read the stories too them. Molly was sat at the dining room table writing a letter to Bill (who was in his first year at Hogwarts) when she realised the cupboard opposite her, the one that held the sweets was opening. At first she thought it was just a trick of the light but the longer she watched it, the wider it was getting. She stood up and shut the cupboard thinking it was just Fred and George playing tricks before returning to her letter, however not even a minute had passed before it started opening again.
“Fred, George stop that this instant!” She shouted through the Burrow, not entirely sure where they were hiding. A second later to cheeky faces appeared in the Kitchen.
“Stop opening the sweet cupboard boys, I don’t care how hungry you are, everyone will be having dinner shortly.” She explained to them.
“But we aren’t…
“…opening the sweet cupboard” started George before Fred finished the sentence.
“Just go play with Charlie and behave boys, I’m watching you.” She told them with a slight shake of her head. They both ran off to find Charlie. The cupboard remained shut for the rest of the day and at 6:30 Molly took Ginny and Arthur took Ron upstairs to put them to bed. Molly tucked Ginny in and told her a story about a girl who used to get laughed at but then one day she found out she was a witch, however before she reached the end Ginny’s eyes fluttered shut and she fell asleep with a smile on her face. Giving her a kiss on the forehead Molly quietly walked out of the room and almost walked into Arthur. Holding a finger up to her lips she pointed to Ginny’s room to signal that Ginny was asleep. Opening Ron’s door she walked in and saw him lying on the bed, his favourite teddy bear tucked in next to him. Smiling at no one in particular she proceeded to give him a kiss on the forehead before leaving the room and going to try and wrestle the twins into bed.
Early the next morning, 3:30 am early, Molly was woken up by a loud giggles; groaning to herself she got out of bed and headed into Fred and Georges’ room. She was all set to tell them off, however to her surprise both the twins were still fast asleep; they even looked somehow angelic which amused Molly a little. When she had left the room she wandered into Ron’s room, which was next door and the sight that met her eyes made her gasp in shock. All of Ron’s teddies were floating in the air and in the middle sat Ron who looked highly entertained by all the floating toys.
“Who’s my clever little boy; his first time using magic, we better go and tell daddy shouldn’t we!” She picked up Ron who laughed as Molly started smothering him in kisses. All the teddies fell to the floor with a soft bump and Molly walked out of Ron’s room and practically ran into her bedroom.
“Arthur, wake up! Arthur, are you awake?!” She half-whispered, half-screamed as she tried not to wake the other children up; it was only 3:30 after all.
“Hmm, wa’happened?” he whispered, as he turned to face Molly and was surprised to see her holding Ron.
“Little Ronikins did his first bit of magic! All his teddies were flying about in his room. You want to show daddy?”
“That’s great, but I don’t think he is going to show me any time soon” smiled Arthur as he watched Ron doze back off in Molly’s arms. Molly laughed quietly before tucking Ron in between her and Arthur. For the rest of the night Molly slept with a smile on her face as she dreamed of Ron and what he would get up to when he finally went to Hogwarts.
