Background: Font color:
Herm and I ran out to the water to try surfing again.
“Okay do you want to try alone or do you want me to go on with you again?” I asked her.
“Well can you go on with me once and then I’ll try alone?” She asked.
“Of course!” I said enthusiastically.
She got on the board only falling off once or twice and then I climbed on behind her.
“Ok stand up!” I said when I saw the perfect wave.”
She stood up then I got up as well, standing behind her instead of holding her.
“Now put your arms out to balance yourself!” I said.
She put her arms out keeping balance. At one point she started to slip so I grabbed her around her waist to steady her.
We rode the small straight wave all the way to the shore where we met a cheering Ron, Mon, Kirsten, and Sirius.
Hermione bowed and said, “Thank you, Thank you very much!”
We all laughed then Herm and I paddled back into the water. When we got to a good spot I stopped the board.
“Are you sure you want to do this alone?” I asked.
“I’m positive!” She said.
“Alright then, climb on!” I told her.
She rode all good waves in, only falling off a few times.
She paddled back out to me, “Harry I want to try bigger!” She shouted!
“Are you sure?” I asked.
“Positive!” She yelled then started paddling deeper in the ocean.
I conjured myself a surf board and followed her.
“Ok, stop here; this should be a good place!” I told her.
“I want to go all alone!” She told me, sounding proud of herself.
“Alright, but you better not get hurt!” I told her.
“I wont, no worries Harry!”
We found good waves and both turned around and started paddling.
“Ok stand up!” I shouted.
She quickly stood up on her board.
We both started moving.
All of a sudden Herm lost her balance and fell off the board. I stopped and looked where she was. She wasn’t coming up from the water.
“Oh my God!” I yelled, worried.
I quickly pulled off my leg strap and dove under.
I looked all over the bottom for Herm and saw her board stuck under a rock.
She was floating unconscious above it, not very close to the surface. I quickly used all my strength and lifted up the rock and grabbed Hermione, brining her to the surface. I laid her down on my surfboard and started giving her mouth to mouth and pushed on her stomach.
I was so worried about her, so worried that she would die.
Finally she coughed out the water in her mouth and slowly opened her eyes.
“Harry!” She said looking up at me.
“Your ok!” I shouted hugging her.
She started crying and hugged me back.
“You saved my life!” She cried.
“Its ok, your ok now, thank you for sticking in there, I was so worried about you!”
“Can we please go back in now?” She asked.
I whipped away her tears and smiled.
“Actually Herm, I want you to try another one! You have to get over your fear of drowning again and try again!” (A/N: When I was in fifth grade, my cousin, my grandma, and I almost drowned in the ocean, and when the lifeguard came and saved us, they told us that! Just so you know this isn’t a bunch of bogus!)
“I’ll try Harry but can we go back to the baby waves?” She asked smiling back at me.
“I was hoping you would ask that, of course!” I told her.
We went back to the smaller waves and stopped her board.
“Want me to go on with you?” I asked.
“No that’s ok, I think I can do it, but don’t let me drown!” She said climbing on her board.
“Ok, I won’t!”
She saw a good wave and rode it to shore! I followed her in on another wave!
“Congratulations, you did it!” I told her putting her on my shoulder.
“Ah, Harry put me down!” She giggled.
“Ok, I will!” I put her down. “Now lets get back to the tent, It looks like that is where everyone else is!”
“Ok lets go!” She said, grabbing my hand.
My near death experience really scared me. Harry was so brave to come and save me. I was so happy and grateful to him that it made me love him, if possible even more.
We walked back into the tent and saw everyone else sitting in the main room, watching a muggle movie.
“Hey guys!” Sirius said looking away from the movie, “Where were you?”
“Well Herm almost drowned surfing, so I figured I would take my time and save her!” Harry said sarcastically.
“Oh my, Herm all you all right?” Sirius asked, checking every bone in my body.
“I’m ok now that Harry saved me!” I said.
“That must have been so scary!” Mon said coming over to give me a hug. I hugged her back.
“It was scary, I’m so grateful that Harry saved me!” I told her.
“Herm are you alright you look a little pale!” Ron said coming over, also giving me a hug.
“Your right, I don’t feel that well, maybe I have a bug.” I told him.
“Let me take your temperature!” Kirsten said conjuring an ear muggle temperature taker thing.
She stuck it in my ear, I heard a beep and she took it out.
“Wow that was fast!” I said.
“I know some muggle things, are pretty well made!” She said.
“You have a 103 degree temperature!” Kirsten told me.
“Wow, I better get to bed!” I told her.
I went into the bathroom and took a nice warm bath. I changed into my silk negligee and put on my pink robe and fuzzy pink slippers. I got my nice pink fleece blanket (think she like’s pink *shrug’s*) and laid down in mine and Harry’s bed.
Harry walked in a few minutes later with a big bowl of chicken noodle soup, some juice and a few crackers.
He lay down next to me, and set the tray over me.
“Did you make this?” I asked.
“Yup, all by myself!” He said proudly!
“Thank you!” I said, “When did you learn how to cook?”
“Well I always had to cook for Dudley!” He told me.
He picked up a spoon of soup and blew on it then put it in my mouth.
“It’s very good!” I said surprised at how good of a cook Harry could be.
“Good I’m glad!” He said handing me the spoon and laying down himself.
“Wow surfing really wears a person out doesn’t it Harry?” I asked.
“Yes it does!” He said yawning. “Now if you don’t mind, I think I’ll go shower!”
“Go right ahead!” I said holding my nose.
“Hey!” He laughed and walked out of the room.
I finished my soup and laid it on the bedside table.
I conjured a TV and levitated it to our dresser. I turned it on and found one of my favorite muggle movies, Legally Blonde
I watched part of the movie. Harry came in wearing boxers and a t-shirt and crawled into bed next to me! I turned off the TV.
“I’m tired are you?” I asked him.
“Yes, pretty tired for it being only 9:00 at night!” He said.
“Can you get me a glass of water?” I asked him.
“Of course, I’ll be right back!” He said.
He came back a few minutes later with a tall glass of water and chocolate milk.
“Oh, can I have chocolate milk instead?” I asked, all of a sudden feeling ancy!
“Ok, you take mine; I’ll go get myself another glass.” He said standing up again.
He shortly came back with another chocolate milk and two chocolate chip cookies.
“Hey, can I have a cookie?” I asked.
“I knew it!” He said.
He gave me one of his cookies.
“Happy now?” He asked.
“Yup, thanks!” I said.
“You’re a needy person tonight!” He remarked laughing.
“I know, I’m sorry!” I said.
We finished our chocolate milk and cookies and brushed our teeth. He brought the dished back to the kitchen as I laid in bed.
He came back and paused at the bed.
“Before I fall asleep, is there anything else you want?” He asked me sarcastically.
“No I’m good now!” I said.
He lay down beside me and turned the lights off.
“Goodnight Herm, I love you.” He said putting his arm around me.
“Love you to Harry!” I said kissing him. I laid my head on his shoulder and fell asleep.
