46. It Melted the Pain Away

Sirius' face, if possible to be described, was a mixture of confusion, sadness, and pure inability to even look at Bailey or Hermione.  He continues to look down, the pained expression on his face.  He was the only one yet to pledge his full loyalty to Hermione's cause.  It wasn't as if he did not want to stay, just, the fact he didn't know how to say it.  He formulated the words in his head many times, never retracting the correct choice of words.  He could have said anything to put ease on Hermione's mind.

Hermione shifted her gaze to Sirius with his head down, then back over to Bailey.  She wanted most of all for Sirius to speak.  Say something.  She was unsure of whether or not to just go, formulate a new plan, to assume he would go along with them, or wait, see where his true loyalties lie.  She desperately wanted to just yell at him, and then hug him and make up, just like they always do.  Some things are hard to change though, and Hermione had made an ultimate promise, a promise of love.  Had she broken the promise?  Willing herself to give up the ring... Had it been the ultimate betrayal.  She stood, in silence, waiting, for something, anything.

Had he waited too long?  Was it too late?  The intricate, impenetrable being that was Hermione's mind, was not at all bein of any use to him.  He wanted to know if it was still okay to go, apologize, make up.  What he wanted... Exactly what he wanted.  The silence was unbearable!  It turned out that he was the king of mixed signals.  And to make it all the worse, Hermione was the queen of second thoughts.  With absolutely no further thought on the matter, Sirius lifted his head and met Hermione's gaze.  He ran over to her and enveloped her in a long, deep embrace. He wrapped her up in his arms, and whispered reassurances in her ears, beginning to tear up at the happiness, the joy that Hermione brought to him.  It was something different.  Holding her, honestly, truly, just holding her.  The feeling was pure.

"Lucky am I to have had something that made saying goodbye to hard." whispered Sirius into her ear.  

"It's not goodbye." Hermione said.  "It's a new hello."  She mumbled as she returned Sirius' hug.  She wrapped her arms around him, and held him, wishing she wouldn't have to let go.  Her thoughts jumbled in her mind.  It numbed the pain.  All of the hurt she had ever felt... It melted away for a little while.  Being in his arms, the feeling of protection was indescribable.  But nothing can be stopped for long.  She began trying to remember her good times.  Seeing as the bad ones kept making a reappearance.  But, as she put her head on Sirius' shoulder, the pain melted away once more, leaving her in a senseless dream.
