Meanwhile, back at the shop, Fred was waiting for George to return. Fred and George had never talked about what happened between George and Hermione, mostly because there was nothing to talk about. Now Fred wanted George’s help.
George and Pig arrived at the same time. The minute he walked into the shop, George knew that something was in the air. He waited while Fred read Ron’s letter and then was confused as to why Fred was laughing so hard that tears rolled down his cheeks.
“What is so bloody funny?!” George burst out. Fred attempted to calm down and speak to his twin, but one look at George and he was off again.
“Ron!” Fred finally exclaimed.
“What did he do now?”
“He...oh this is bloody hilarious!” Fred showed George Ron’s initial letter, and George looked confused.
“Why would Hermione snog Percy?!”
Fred kept laughing. “She didn’t, Ron just knew that she snogged a Weasley, and he assumed it was Percy.”
“But it was you! And Ron said something to Hermione at breakfast this morning, and Percy got involved, then Mum sent a Howler to Percy...it’s one big bloody mess over there.”
George really didn’t want to laugh. Poor Hermione! She must have been humiliated!
He couldn’t help it. He laughed. He laughed so hard that tears rolled down his cheeks. Just when he supposed he should probably quit laughing and owl Ron, Percy and Hermione himself, he kept laughing. Fred too laughed until he was in tears.
George managed to stop laughing after a while, but Fred didn’t stop. George went into the back room to write owl’s to all three, which consumed the better part of an hour. When he emerged from the shop, Fred was still laughing on and off.
“IT IS NOT THAT BLOODY FUNNY!” George exclaimed, turning his back to Fred and store as he gave the three magically sealed letters to his owl to deliver. He heard the Floo Network, but didn’t look up as to who had arrived-costumers from America used the Floo all the time.
“And it just got a bloody hell of a lot funnier!” Fred exclaimed as Hermione emerged from the fireplace.
A/N: Sorry this has taken so long to get up. College and my newest story (already over 100 pages) have consumed my life. Finals are in two weeks and after that I’ll have a bloody lot of time to write. Enjoy while I dream up what I want to do next!
