"Okay, Harry. I am tired, can you please stop?" I was still laughing
"Okay," he pouted sticking out his lower lip
"You are going to get that caught on something." I smiled at him
"Yes," I smiled, "I need to go to sleep, Harry."
"Fine," Harry said and sat down on the rocking chair in the corner of my room
I smirked at him. He looked so comfortable in the rocking chair without the blanket. I laughed at him. He frowned at me. I swung the blanket around.
"Do you mind?" He asked
I threw the blanket at him and it hit him in the face. He sighed. I laughed and stuck out my tongue. He took the blanket off of his face and stuck his tongue out at me. I smirked at him and he rolled his eyes. I remember the lights were still on and chuckled.
"Could you get the lights?" I asked him
"Sure," He rolled his eyes and got up
He turned the lights off and tried to find his way back to the rocking chair. Instead, he tripped on the way there. I laughed. He struggled to stand up. After that I heard the creak of the rocking chair and I knew he had gotten to the chair.
I woke up in the middle of the night and I could not fall back asleep. I watched Hermione in her sleep. She rolled over and started thrashing around. All of a sudden she screamed. I bolted up to her and shook her awake. She kept screaming and slapped me.
"'Mione, 'Mione! It's me! It's okay, it was just a dream." I shouted
"It was so real, so so real." She whimpered hiding her face in my chest
"It's okay, it's okay." I rocked her in my arms
"Do you what to tell me what happened, 'Mione?" I asked
"Sure, sure. Well, Alecto was standing over me when Ron came up to me. He saw that Alecto was getting ready to kill me. He jumped in the way of the spell and it killed him, just like it happened in real life. Then she grabbed me and put the Killing Curse on me. I felt the curse as if it was the worst way to kill me; the way that I worst feared. It was so terrifying. You woke me up then." She shuddered
"Oh," I winced
"Oh, I am so sorry, Harry." She apologized with tears in her eyes
"It's okay, 'Mione. It's nothing." I shook my eyes filling with tears remembering all those I loved who had died by the Killing Curse
"Oh, Harry." She hugged me
"'Mione, I said it's okay. I am completely fine." I shook my head and pulled away
"Harry, do you honestly think that I am going to fall for that?" She grinned at me
"Well, I cheered you up." I remarked
"Harry, don't be like that." Hermione looked at me with pity in her eyes
"Hermione, I do not need your pity." I glared at her
"I am not pitying you, I just know what you are going through and it kills. Similar stuff kills me everyday. I understand, Harry, I understand." She looked me in eyes, "We are moving on together, you and I both know that. We agreed on this, you know that moving on involves pain, but it also involves happiness. If anyone is to move on they are supposed to be happy after that. Not necessarily forever, but for as long as it lasts. Come on, Harry. You know that." She lifted my chin, "Us moving on would be the only thing to make them happy, we know that."
"Hermione, it's just not that easy." I let out a breath
"Love never is," Hermione sighed
"I know, I know."
