11. The Burrow

The Easter holidays swooped in like no tomorrow. As planned me, Harry and Hermione were staying at Ron’s for the holidays. I had let Dad and Mum know beforehand. Ginny was extremely excited about this arrangement. Even Fred and George liked the idea. So we all met Mr and Mrs Weasley at Kings Cross Station and jumped into their undetectibly extended Ford Anglia.

 

Once we arrived at their small house or ‘The Burrow’, Mrs Weasley demanded that Fred and George help with mine, Hermione and Harry’s luggage. Inside was like a small country cottage but the washing up and knitting was doing itself. “Thank you for the jumper, Mrs Weasley.” I said after offering to lay the table. I had the jumper on to show her I appreciated her gift. “Oh, it’s OK, dear.” Mrs Weasley said then pointed her wand at one of the saucepans on the stove, which flew over to the table and poured its contents into a small dish.

 

Dinner was a lovely roast chicken with vegetables, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and chicken gravy. It was better that Nana’s roast and they were mouth-watering. After dinner I helped Mrs Weasley and Ginny wash up. Then Mr Weasley told us the bedroom arrangements. Harry was sharing with Ron, Hermione was sharing with Ginny and I was on the sofa. I didn’t mind where I slept. Even if I had to share with Ron’s brother, Percy, who is a stuck up snob.

 

Before going to bed I sat in Ginny’s room with Hermione and Ginny. We talked about all sorts of things. Favourite subjects. Who we fancied. Plus a game of ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid’. “OK, Ginny,” Hermione said “Snog, Marry, Avoid. Dean Thomas, Malfoy or Blaise Zabini.” Ginny thought for a minute then said “Snog, Dean. Marry, Blaise. Avoid, Malfoy.” Me and Hermione giggled. “Hayden,” Ginny continued “Snog, Marry, Avoid. Harry, Ron or Neville.”

 

That was a hard one. I didn’t know what to say. But I finally blurted “Snog, Harry. Marry, Neville. Avoid, Ron.” Ginny and Hermione burst into tears of laughter. Even I found it a little funny then we all got a bit tired. Ginny and Hermione climbed into their beds as I went downstairs to lay on the sofa. I pulled the covers over my body and closed my eyes.

 

But once I had fallen asleep completely I started to hear voices.

 

I know you’re a witch. Now tell me hoe to reverse it!

I don’t know! Please let me go!

Not until you tell me how to reverse to curse!

I don’t know!

Stupid girl! You think you can out smart me but you can’t!

 

Then I woke up in a cold sweat. Harry was sitting beside me. “I heard you scream.” He said. I blushed a little. “Oh, it’s just. I had a dream about what happened to me.” I explained getting up for a glass of water. Once I did I sat back on the sofa with Harry. “I had weird dream too.” He says “Normally they’re about what happened to my parents.” I nodded. I knew what happened to Harry’s parent because everyone at Hogwarts knew.

 

I put down my glass went to lay back down then Harry pressed his lips against mine. I felt adrenaline rushed from the top of my head to the tips of my fingers and toes. I’d never kissed or been kissed by a boy before. Now  I can say that I have.
