“No, not doing this,” Hermione said as her heart skipped a beat, she just couldn’t face Ron, no matter how much he wanted to talk to her. She stepped back and started walking the other way. Perfect timing Ronald, gees!
Ron saw her walking away from the kitchen table and came after her. Hermione kept walking… faster and faster until she broke into a run… finally she got to the corn field and Ron, who was running too grabbed her arm out of nowhere. “Bloody hell Hermione Jean Granger, listen to me damnit!”
Hermione just shook her head and turned away. She fell to the ground and grabbed her knees suddenly crying.
“Please hear me out!” He screamed desperately. “HEAR YOU OUT?! HEAR YOU OUT, RONALD?! I DON’T NEED TO HEAR THIS, I HEARD YOU OUT! I READ THE MESSAGES!” Hermione screamed, standing up and getting in his face. He tried to reach out to her, “Ronald Weasley if you try touching me one more time I am going to use the Cruciatus Curse and I’m NOT KIDDING!” She grabbed her wand and pointed it at him straight in the neck.
“You broke my heart Ron! If you still love me then how COULD YOU?! HOW COULD YOU RON?!” Hermione was then lost with words her sobbing got out of control.
Ginny and Harry watched in awe at their porch. “What do we do?” Ginny whispered to Harry. “We can’t do anything Gin…” He answered.
Hermione crashed back into the ground. “I loved you, I really loved you!” Hermione cried to him into her hands.
Ron was lost for words, how did she get ahold of his phone? How could she have found out? He hated himself, he wanted to die at this moment, seeing the girl he loves so upset, falling apart. He was the worst man alive. “Hermione, please listen… I am so, so sorry I cheated, it will never ever happen again. Blamey, it only happened twice! I hate myself for this Hermione, I hope you know that!”
“I sure hope you do Ron because you are never getting me back,” sneered Hermione, “You have Lavender and I hope that makes it okay!” She then got up, dusted herself off, slapped Ron VERY hard, and walked toward the house where Ginny and Harry were still standing with their mouths open.
“Hermione, please?” Ron begged, rubbing his right cheek where she hit him. “No Ronald, we are done and I don’t want to speak with you for as long as possible!” Hermione screamed as she walked into the house. Ginny ran after Hermione and Harry after Ron.
“Ron, I’m sorry mate, but you shouldn’t have done this!” Harry said approaching to a now crying Ron.
“My life is over…” Ron said sadly. “No it isn’t Ron, maybe she will take you back, it may take months or years but if you love that woman it’s worth it Ron,” Harry said laying his hand on his friend’s shoulder. “Harry, I have loved her since I laid my eyes on her in our first year, how could I have even done this to her?”
Ginny followed Hermione upstairs and opened up the door she just slammed in her face.
Hermione was found with her face buried in her pillow, bawling. Ginny picked her up by her shoulders and hugged her. “I’m sorry ‘Mione, you can stay here as long as you need to, I will make sure you get everything you need.”
“Oh Ginny, I am so lucky to have you as a friend, I love you,” Hermione sobbed.
“Harry and I love you too Hermione. I love my brother too but he is a git right now!” Hermione nodded, “Yes he is!”
After about thirty minutes, Ron was long gone and Hermione was feeling better, she even offered to hold the baby while Ginny took a bath and Harry worked on Auror assignments in his home office.
Little James had eyes just like Ginny's, blue and blazing. His hair was dark like Harry’s but had a little red tint to it as well. He had Ginny’s nose and Harry’s mouth. “You’re such a precious boy,” Hermione cooed at him. She felt her cell phone vibrating in her pocket. She took it out and to her amazement, it wasn’t Ron but Draco that texted her. Hermione, I had a good lunch with you, I am so glad we are somewhat trying to be civil. Maybe we can even be friends. Do you want to meet up again sometime? –Draco.
Ginny was out of the bath and was sneakily looking over her shoulder. “Hermione Granger, what?! Malfoy of all people?” Ginny asked quietly so Harry couldn’t hear. Hermione rolled her eyes and handed Ginny little James. “Yes, Malfoy. We saw each other today in Flourish and Blotts in Diagon Alley,” Hermione said, blushing. “And did what?” “He wanted to go to lunch so we did, we had a good talk and decided for now on things will be different, he isn’t evil, never was and we will even try to be friends. We had a lunch without dueling each other or cursing at each other once!” “Or maybe more than friends…” Ginny teased, giggling. Draco, we should meet again at the same place, tomorrow. –Hermione.
Ginny promised she would not tell Harry yet and defidently not Ron.
The evening fighting with Ron haunted Hermione’s thoughts as she got into bed. Ron was truly sorry and she could see it in his eyes. But he will never be fully forgiven, and she could never be with him again. She realized that she still had the golden ring with the white diamond on her left hand and she took it off and threw it into her night stand drawer. “Won’t need that anymore!” She said to herself. Weirdly, she wasn’t that sad anymore. When she took the ring off it was almost a relieving feeling. Maybe Ron just wasn’t meant to be her husband. Maybe someone else is. Draco drifted into her mind, she imagined herself with him.
Hermione shocked herself for thinking that, how could she love someone on the other side?
Draco fought against them! But he saved us, he didn’t point out it was us in Malfoy Manor that day. His mother is the reason Harry is still alive. He never wanted to kill Dumbledore or anyone for that matter. He is not evil. He just did it because of his family, became a death eater, she found herself arguing with herself mentally. Draco isn’t a bad person he has just done bad things.
As she lay in bed, day dreaming of Draco and listening to the rain that just started falling again outside, she could hear little James crying and Ginny’s soothing voice to comfort him. I sure hope I have that someday… Something told her that she would. She fell asleep.
“Hermione, wake up!” Hermione awoke with a start. Ginny’s blue eyes were gazing at her.
“What Gin? Everything okay?”
“Yes, just wanted to ask if you could watch little James for a few hours? I’ll pay you 50 galleons!” Hermione groaned and sat up.
“Yes I can, can I invite a friend over?” She asked, smiling.
“Oh ‘Mione, I guess so. I can’t believe this!” She said playfully rolling her eyes and shoving Hermione.
Ginny then left the room but then turned round, “Breakfast is ready!” Hermione sniffed and could smell bacon and coffee.
She got up and gazed at her rough appearance in the mirror. “Oh boy, I’m pretty!” She laughed at herself as she looked at her fuzzy, bushy hair.
Ginny already had a plate all ready for her as she sat at the table.
Harry was scarfing down eggs and looked up at Hermione, “’Mornin’ Ginny ooks so ell!!” Hermione chuckled at him, being around Harry for so long she understood those words and started eating herself.
“Mmm, Ginny you do cook wonderful, this tastes amazing!” Hermione exclaimed as she started eating her homemade biscuits and jam.
“So where are you going today Ginny?” Hermione asked curiously.
“Oh, I am going shopping with mum because she wants a girl’s day. She called me this morning and is really torn up and thinking of Fred today so she asked me if I wanted to get out of the house with her. Just us.”
“Oh, I see, well I hope you have fun!” Hermione said kindly to her friend.
Harry hugged Hermione, kissed Ginny and left for work, commenting on how Ron is still so torn up and doesn’t know if he will show up to work for a while.
This caused Hermione’s thoughts to go back to Ron. She then realized she didn’t even think of him until someone mentioned him and didn’t really miss him.
“Hermione? You okay?” Ginny asked, waving a hand in front of her face.
“Yes, just realizing I don’t miss your brother.”
“Well, I don’t know
if he was right for you anyways, even though you guys love each other,” Ginny said.
“See Gin, I think I lost my love for him when I saw those texts…” Hermione sighed.
“Well, he deserves it!” Spat Ginny, “Anyways, I am going to go ahead and apparate to mum’s. Good luck with Malfoy and please take care of my son, he gets up at about nine,” Ginny said, straightening up her blouse and giving Hermione a pat on the back. “Okay, have a good time,” Hermione replied. Then Ginny was gone.
Hermione forgot to text Malfoy and let him know to come to Harry and Ginny’s place.
She texted him and he said he would be there soon. Hermione quickly got ready to see him and she put on shorts and a tight black shirt that really showed her body off. Should she be doing this, be friends with an ex-death eater? Her heart was racing as time went by…
