The beginning

What happens after Harry and Ron leave hogwarts? Hermione is left to complete her education. With no one still with her at hogwarts from her year, she tries to get through the long year. Finally, Christmas break is nearing. But with hermione gone visiting Harry and Ron, is hogwarts in danger?


13. Christmas

Everyone was joyful as the laughs they shared. Molly had put gifts all around the tree. There almost wasn't enough room for all of the gifts. 

The kids opened their gifts. They got the presents previously listed and others from their friends. Ron got Harry a set of wizarding chess and other wizarding games. Ginny got Ron a locket with a picture of the four friends in it. Hermione got Ginny a book of fun muggle crafts and games. 

There were many other gifts, too. The big family played games in the backyard. Quidditch was among the favorites. They spend a few hours on quidditch alone. Hermione tried her best at playing but her skills at flying were always minor to those of her friends. Harry, the former seeker, and Ron, the former keeper, were the best flyers of the bunch. George hadn't played in a while but he wasn't too shabby. Percy and Charlie were decent players too. Ginny was fantastic. She was excellent at dodging bludgers and bloody brilliant at scoring. Harry had practiced with her before. He was the one who taught her how to play. But her playing now just blew him away. Harry didny know if it was the wind in her hair or the effort she gave, but something about her playing quidditch blew him away. He was slightly concerned about her playing, being in her current state and all, but he also wasn't going to stop her.

The Weasley's, along with the others, ate a very large meal. They stuffed themselves silly. Harry hoped Ginny was doing alright. She look fine and seemed fine. Ginny was sitting next to Harry. Holding hands, smiling, laughing. Hermione couldn't help but notice how happy she looked with him. Ginny was one of her best friends, and it made her happy to know that two of her very best friends were happy together.

Harry noticed that there was one forgotten present under the tree. The tag said, "To Mr. Potter and Miss Weasley, with my best regards. Love, Hermione" 

Harry called Ginny over and Hermione followed close behind.

"Well, are you going to open it or stare at my beautiful wrapping skills all evening?!" Hermione asked impatiently, like a child waiting for a cookie.

"Okay, okay, Ms. PushyPants!" Harry replied defensively.

Ginny and Harry pulled back the wrapping paper to reveal two, brand new books in perfect condition. The first one was titled "caring for your first witch or wizard, a book on childcare" and the second one was titled "raising a wizard or witch." 

Ginny and Harry exchanged looks before turning to hermione. They, almost perfectly in sync, they said, "Hermione! How did you know?!"
