“So...what is it that’s so important that you have to tell me? I got your owl, I came here as soon as I can...and now...you’re both just staring at me...” Ron Weasley huffed, running his pale fingers through his ginger hair, “Some of us have places to be.” He added irritably, looking at his best friends who sat opposite him. Ron huffed again, glancing at a clock. Soon he’d be late. He was currently working as a coach for the under-thirteen Quidditch team in his town, but as soon as they’d be back at school, he’d be working at Hogwarts as the teacher of the sport.
“Well...” began Harry Potter, his emerald eyes glancing back over to the woman on his left, “The thing is...uhm...Hermione...help?” Harry breathed, watching as Hermione granger rolled her eyes.
“Oh Harry...” she sighed, looking at him but squinting. The midday summer sun beat in through the window, glaring through the room,
“Look...” Ron cut in, “It’s just that I’ve got the team tonight...so...can we get this show on the road?”
“Ronald!” Hermione snapped,
“What we’re trying to say, Ron, is that...” Harry continued to struggle. He pushed his glasses up on the brim of his nose. He sighed, trying to find the right words.
“Ron,” Hermione now spoke again, “Harry and I...we’re now a couple.” She said calmly, “As of...a couple months ago.”
“That’s what I’ve been trying to say.” Harry nodded, “Hermione and I...”
“...And?” Ron arched an eyebrow,
“We thought you should know.” Harry shrugged, “It’s just that...you’re the first one to know. You’re our best friend.”
“We also think we should ask you what you think.” Hermione added, placing her hand on Harry’s and intertwining their fingers, “So, what do you think?”
“You’re asking me, what I think that my two best friends are now dating?” Ron mumbled, trying to process the information. He seemed to think about this for a few minutes before nodding and smiling, “I, for one, think it’s great!” he exclaimed, “Fred and George owe me money!”
“...” Harry and Hermione stared at Ron with confusion,
“Well...we had a bet going on...Fred and George thought you two wouldn’t get together until at least next year...it’s taken you this long to be so awkward!” Ron chuckled, “But I thought you’d sort it out!” he continued. Harry laughed,
“Ron...thanks....it means a lot that you approve...and you can take us out to celebrate with the money you get from your brothers!”
“Yeah right.” Ron stood, “Well...if that was your big announcement, that you’re a couple, I’m heading off...I’ll owl you later.” He said before heading towards the door. When it closed, Harry and Hermione exchanged glances,
“That boy...he’ll never change.” Hermione sighed before standing up, “Tea?”
“Definitely.” Harry smiled, “Hermione?”
“Love you.” He told her as she went to walk off.
“Love you too, Harry.” She mumbled with a smile before walking away and into the kitchen.
It's too hot for me to write something overly good. The title blows. :(
