Tears, Roses, and Desparation

FINISHED: Harry and Hermoine are devastated. Those closest to them have died after Voldemort's attack on Hogwarts. But hopes of moving on bring them closer together.


6. Together

Hermione's POV


"We need to go back to bed." Harry stood up

"Harry, please stay here." I pleaded with him

"I don't know, Hermione." He rubbed the back of his neck, "I want to be alone."

"No, I mean with me.  I do not want the nightmares to come back.  You might protect me from them." I replied honestly

"You do not need me." Harry started to walk out the door

"Yes, Harry, I do.  We are in this together, remember?  Together." My eyes glistened with tears at his planned leave

"Okay, fine." Harry gave in

"Thank you." I said as he climbed in next to me

I curled up against his chest.  He smiled and wrapped his arms around me.  I snuggled into him.  I closed my eyes.  Harry closed his and soon, we both were fast asleep.  I slept without a single dream.


Harry's POV


She said she needed me.  I was amazed, I had never known Hermione to admit any weakness, she did not show any either.  I watched her sleeping figure.  Her bushy hair tumbled down her back.  She had not gotten it cut in a while so it had grown longer.  I gently stroked her hair, soon regretting my harsh words earlier.  I understood why Ron had loved her.  She was beautiful and strong.  She was a great friend and stood up to those who hurt her or her friends.  She was kind, sometimes even to those who did not deserve it.

Her eyelids fluttered and I closed mine, so she thought I was asleep.  I opened mine again and hers were still closed.  I smiled and kissed her forehead.  I checked my watch, it was almost eight o'clock.  I slid out from under the covers slowly, so I would not wake her up.

I left her room and took a shower.  I got dressed and headed out the door.  As far as I knew she was still asleep.  I slipped out the door quietly and went to get her her car.  I decided to go get some breakfast rather than go back in the house without getting her car.



Hey, so sorry about the short chapter, but I didn't know what else to put.  Some of it I didn't even really want to put in there.  Sorry.  Keep waiting for the next chapter.
