I couldn't believe that he was putting his arm around me! He was so warm and all I wanted to do was snuggle up in his arms. He kept his arm around me for the rest of Harry's practise. When it had finished Harry rushed up to us, and to my disappointment Ron quickly took his arm back from around my shoulders.
'Hey, did you guys make up then?' Harry said smiling brightly.
'Yeah we did,' Ron said grinning. 'So what do you guys want to do today?'
i was about to reply that I didn't mind when we all heard a horrible screech and we all turned around.
'Ron Weasley, what do you think you are doing with HER?' Lavender shrieked pointing a finger at me. I couldn't help but notice how she was unnecessarily swinging her hips around like a huge slut. It made her look like she couldn't walk properly.
'She's my friend...' Ron started weakly.
'It didn't seem like you two were very good friends yesterday!' She growled glaring at us.
'And your point is...' Said Ron raising an eyebrow at her.
Lavender opened her mouth to say something but then shut it. She then smiled sickeningly sweetly (fake) and said 'oh nothings wrong ronnybabe.' She walked over to him and threw herself at him before he had a chance to move. She flung her arms dramatically around his neck and was about to snog him full on the mouth before Ron finally managed to push her off him.
'what the hell lavender?' He yelled with an disgusted look on his face. 'Why did you do that?'
I looked at him. He was blushing furiously and he had a look of disgust and embarrassment on his face. I smirked a little but hid my smile by biting my lip.
'Don't you remember what you said yesterday?' she said with what she obviously hoped was a seductive smile on her face. 'Don't you remember what you did yesterday?'
'I didn't say or do anything.'
Before lavender could say anything else he pushed her aside and strode away. I thought she would have a (fake) hurt expression on her face, but she was still smiling, like she had won something. It was an evil smile.
Harry followed ron and walked past her, and I was about to do the same when lavender grabbed my hair and pulled me to her. I was about to scream when she put a hand over her mouth.
'We both know it will never work between you two,' she said fiercely.
'Oh yeah? and why's that?' I hissed. i tried my best to sound confident.
'You argue with him so much. How can you ever be in a relationship with eachother if you dont even get along well with eachother when you are not in one?'
I knew she was right. It made me want to scream, but i couldnt let her win. She was just winding me up.
'We'll see about that,' I finished. I yanked my hair out from her grip and hurried to catch up with the others.
'You're not good enough for him!' I heard her calling behind me. I tried my best to ignore her.
'What was that about?' Harry asked when Hermione came back to join us. We were making our way back to the castle from the quidditch pitch.
'Oh nothing,' she said, obviosly trying her best to look happy. I could tell that she was hurt though.
Harry let the subect drop.
'So, when was that essay for snape supposed to be in?' I asked trying to sound casual.
'Monday I think said Hermione.'
My eyes widend. I was not expecting it to be so soon.
'Ah flip, I havent done it. I geuss I'll just do it tomorrow.'
'I could help you if you wanted me to.'
wait, did hermione just offer to help me?
'Oh, um, yeah sure, I geuss,' I mumbled uncertainly.
She looked a little hurt at first for some reason, but then smiled a small smile at me. It was cute. I couldnt get over how cute and pretty her smile was.
We soon made it back to the great hall doors and harry spotted Cho.
'Oh god, I guess we'll see you later then, loverboy!' I teased him.
He blushed furiously shooting me a glare before making his way over to her. they both smiled and then snogged. I looked away quickly mock vomiting and hermione laughed at me, rolling her eyes.
i raised my eyebrows at her for a moment but then we turned and started making our way back to the common room. We were halfway there when she said she needed to go to the bathroom, but I shouldnt wait for her, so when she left I went straight back to the common room. when I got there, there was hardly any room for actually hanging out because all the space was taken up by the tents. Neville was siting in a corner so I walked over to him. It looked like he was doing the essay for Snape.
'Have you done this essay yet?' he asked looking desperate.
'No I havent yet.'
'It's so hard! I cant find any information about this particular potion in any of the books that I've tried!'
'Just ask hermione if you're stuck,' I said rolling my eyes.
His eyes widend. 'why didnt i think of that?' he suddenly looked really happy. no not just really happy, so happy that he looked like he could climb onto the roof of the school, sing his heart out and then jump off and fly away to his happy place.
'Thanks ron!' he said beaming. he then scurried over to the tent which he and lavender were sharing.
I rolled my eyes again and sat down in the sit in which Neville had just left. I looked out of the window, and thought about hermione. I always seemed to be thinking of her lately.
suddenly the portrait hole burst open and a sniffling and sobbing hermione clambered out of it. she had her hands covering her face and tears were streaming down her cheeks. rattling sobs keep erupting out of her chest and her eyes are red and bloodshot. and that is when I noticed that she has a black eye.
'Hermione!' I said, immediately rushing over to her. 'What happened?'
'Go away ron!' she said fiercely. i didnt give up though.
'Hermione!' I said, grabbing her arm and spinning her around. my grip was too strong for her. she struggled to try and get out of it but she was too weak and gave up easily. 'Tell me what happened! Who did this to you?'
'Leave me alone ron,' she said shakily, before seemingly giving in to herself and collapsing into my arms where she cried her heart out.
