White Flag/I Do It For You by Scriptie
Chapter 6 : Jar of Hearts
Rating: MatureChapter Reviews: 2

Background:   Font color:  

A/N: To all my readers I am very sorry for nothing on this story for ages; I lost inspiration and now I want to finish this one and start a couple of new ones soon also. I feel as though this was written almost hastily and was thrown together. Tell me your thoughts please and I can now say "White Flag/I Do It For You" is back until the end of this story!


I don't own the characters(J.K. Rowling does) or the lyrics to "Jar of Hearts" because Christina Perri owns them. Enjoy!


Chapter 6

Ginny had just sent a letter to Ron about where her and Hermione were going to be meeting up tomorrow. She climbed into bed next to Harry and faced away from him, thinking about what could happen tomorrow.
Hermione sat in the living room thinking about the choice she made last night. It was nearly time to leave. She held her wand and had her beaded bag around her. She cleared her mind as she stood up from the couch and turned on the spot apparating to The Burrow.
Hermione felt happy remembering all the time she spent here before school started. She walked through the door and expected to see Molly Weasley giving her a big hug now but she didn't. "Hello 'Mione," spoke a voice. Hermione was frozen when she heard the voice of Ron Weasley. "What are you doing here?" she asked in surprise. "Oh just wanted to see my mum..but instead here I am with you." Ron took a step towards Hermione and she took a step back.

No, I won't take one more step towards you
'Cause all that's waiting is regret

"Come on 'Mione," Ron opened his arms in an embrace,"I know you love me and want to come back to me. I'm no longer with Lavender." Hermione stared at Ron like he was a stranger. She no longer loved him and remembered every moment she got hurt by Ron.

Don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
You lost the love I loved the most

I learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time

Her heart was just another one in his collection after the trio was given celebrity status. All the girls went after Ron and he didn't care. He led them to believe he liked them. Hermione looked at Ron with her lips slightly parted, her eyes looking at him in disbelief and tears forming in her eyes as she longed to yell at him.

And who do you think you are?
Runnin' 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are?

"What makes you think I'm going to believe that? You may have fooled me once, but fool me twice and shame on you Ronald Weasley!" Hermione yelled. "What are you talking about?" Ron asked feigning confusion. "You know exactly what I'm talking about. I know what happened all those years ago! You just want me back because I'm marrying your brother and not you! There is no chance of us getting back together ever again!"

I hear you're asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

"What do you mean? Lavender is a mistake!"
"Yeah one that you married," Hermione retorted,"Besides, I don't need you in my life!" She turned around facing the door.

And I've learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time

"What makes you say that?" Ron asked as he took two steps towards Hermione. She faced him,"Who do you think you are? Hurting people and being selfish, not caring about other people's happiness? Just leave me be!"

And who do you think you are?
Runnin' 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are?

"Why should I leave you alone?" Ron seethed with anger. "Were you that oblivious to the hurt you caused me? I cried over you so many times I've lost count. Do you think I want to go back to you after it took me years to feel better after you broke my heart? Hell no! I'm not going back to you after what you've put me through!" She stormed out of The Burrow and slammed the door.

Dear, It took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
'Cause you broke all your promises
And now you're back
You don't get to get me back

Ron was already running after her and caught her wrist. Hermione glared at Ron with hatred and hurt. "Let go of me," Hermione took her wrist from Ron's hand,"How many times must I say it? I'm never going back to you. You hurt me, Fred never has. Will you finally get it through your thick skull that I love Fred?" Ron stood there silent as he thought about what Hermione said.

And who do you think you are?
Runnin' 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Ron tried to reason,"But you were happy with me..."
"After all the hurt you put me through,"Hermione's voice was steel.

Who do you think you are?

"But you loved-"
"Key word loved," she growled.

Who do you think you are?

Ron finally understood. Hermione walked away and disappeared with a pop.

Who do you think you are?

"So she isn't taking you back..." Ron turned around,"Shut up," and faced where Hermione last stood before leaving,"What did I do Ginny?" The only female sibling Weasley stepped beside her brother,"You tried to take her away from Fred. It amazes me how much she loves him even when you tried to get her back. She is right you know."
"What do you mean?"
"Think about it logically if you can. 'Mione must have thought about everything at least twice before making her choice. Anyways I've got to go, Harry and I have somewhere to go," Ginny grinned and left Ron by himself.
"Maybe I should just be happy with the life I have now," he whispered to himself. With a sigh Ron went back to his house.

Hermione got to her destination, stepped out of her car and locked it. She walked into the bar and sat down. The bartender came up to her and was about to ask what she wanted when he was cut off by her. "I'd like two Long Island Ice Teas to start please," Hermione said without a sign of emotion on her face. Her drinks came and she began drinking her first Long Island Ice Tea. She reflected on the past when her and Ron first started dating and recalled him saying he wouldn't hurt her anymore on their first night out and he'd treat her right. She sighed at the memory and continued drinking her beverage.

"'Mione, our school days are done. What happened in the past won't ever happen again. Take my word for it," Ron said as he took her out for their first date after the War. Hermione's mind and heart began argueing, Its a lie! He's hurt you once and he'll do it again. No he won't because he has changed. You're lying to yourself again, I'm right-I've always been right! Just let me try again this time. Please I have a feeling things have changed for the better. Whatever... She put her hand in Ron's,"I believe you." Hermione embraced with Ron, closing her eyes and smiling.

Hermione began her second and thought of Fred. She felt like she had betrayed him and his love. She felt stupid for believing Ron and his lies, and couldn't believe she had to pick between Ron and Fred. Her gaze drifted to the ring Fred gave her and felt sorry for possibly hurting Fred. He was hers and she was his now. She began crying because of the guilt she felt. She was halfway through her second when she heard a woman's voice behind her,"Is this seat taken?" "Not at all," Hermione replied staring at her drink. The woman turned to Hermione,"'Mione, what are you doing here?"
"You know why Gin."
"No I don't," Ginny felt like her friend knew and hoped her friend wouldn't say it.
"I feel like I betrayed my fiancè, the man I love, because Ron claims he wants only me now. I know you know all about it, ever since the beginning," Hermione cried and turned toward the red head,"You only helped because SOMEONE had proof you were with another man while my best friend was out capturing the last Death Eater." Hermione gulped down the rest of her drink and continued," You and I know it was only meeting up with an old friend but your dumb brother thought different so he threatened to tell Harry. Why you decided to play into this I have no clue but it was wrong," Hermione reasoned while being buzzed and turned toward the bartender," Two shots of Jack please," she got her two shots and gulped one after another, then faced her friend again,"If you think I'm going to let this slide, y-y-you're wrong. Bye!"
Hermione got up and swayed as she walked away, all Ginny could do is stare. She began to think about her stupidity and just sat there thinking.

Hermione continued walking back to the joke shop, crying on the way. After a while of crying, she got there and sat down crying some more. The guilt she felt was unbearable. She hoped Fred would forgive her. She cleared her mind and stopped dead in her tracks, closing her eyes while she pulled out her wand. She apparated with a pop to a place she hadn't been in a while.
Fred Weasley was worried about the love of his life, Hermione Granger. It was getting late. With every minute, he felt a sense of deja vu coming upon him. He continued to pace in the living room until he felt an familiar pull, took out his wand and disappeared with a pop.
Hermione opened her eyes and recognized The Potions Pit. She smiled and walked to the bar,"Hello may I have two screwdrivers and some onion rings please," she asked. "No problem," the bartender smiled at her and prepared her drinks. After a couple of minutes the bartender gave her the drinks and Hermione drank her first screwdriver slowly. She got her onion rings shortly after she was halfway done with her first drink and paid the bartender..
She smiled remembering Fred and felt such love for him, wishing to see him right now as she downed the rest of the contents in her first glass. She ate half of her onion rings and was about to start her second when a male voice asked,"May I have that please?" Not thinking anything of it, Hermione responded back,"Sure," and gave the drink to the stranger,"Why are you here?"
"Looking for my fiancé. She's absolutely brilliant."
She turned to look at the stranger,"She sounds- Fred?" Hermione was feeling a mixture of emotions once she saw him. She threw herself at him and began crying, slurring her words together, and held onto him tighter with every passing moment. "Its ok,"Fred soothed her and smelled the alcohol on her breath,"Lets get home and tell me about it later," he kissed her forehead and took her hand. Hermione and Fred walked out and Fred apparated them back the the joke shop.
They both walked to Fred's room and Hermione sat on the bed. "What happened?," Fred began,"Is something wrong?" He heard no response. He turned to look at her saw she was laying down, fast asleep. He looked at her worried, got ready for bed then lay down next to her. He wrapped an arm around her waist as he closed his eyes. Shortly after Fred felt Hermione shaking and crying. I guess I'm going to find out what happened, he thought as he heard her talking about the events leading up to tonight.
