Hermione's POV

After a while I looked at the bedside table and the clock read 2 o'clock in the morning. I was really tired, but I just couldn't sleep with Ron snoring so loudly. Before long, I couldn't take it anymore, and I chucked one of my pillows at his head. This seemed to briefly wake him up a little bit, so as quickly as i could i whisper-shouted, 'Stop snoring so loudly, i can't get to sleep!'

'Sorry Mione,' he said quietly in a dazed voice, but before I could stop him, he had rolled back over and fallen asleep again!

'Urghhhhh,' I groaned, and when I tried to sleep again by putting my head on the pillow, I realized that my head was too low down for my liking. As I usually only slept with at least two pillows, I was a bit confused, until I suddenly remembered that I had thrown one of them at Ron's head. As silently as I could, I got up out of bed and crept over to where his bed was. Unluckily, he was hugging my pillow tightly and it was quite hard to prise it out of his arms without waking him up. Once I had finally got it back, which took a lot of effort, I went back to my bed and tried once again to get back to sleep, but I couldn't because once again Ron's snores were deafening me! I decided that I just couldn't stay here, because then I would never get ANY sleep at all. And then a thought struck me.

Even though I knew that it was one of the strictest rules not to go into anyone else's tent, maybe if I crept quietly enough and then went back to my own tent early in the morning, maybe, just maybe I would be able to pull off going into someone else's tent for the night. Maybe it would work. This plan was very rebellious and very risky, but now I had it in my head I just had to follow through with it. I could remember which tent was Harry's and hopefully he and Parvati would just let me sleep on the floor in between the two beds.

I looked at the clock. It was coming up to half past two now. Hopefully they hadn't been asleep for long and they weren't in very deep sleep so they would wake quickly. I grabbed my two pillows and my duvet, and made my way to the door of the tent. With one last glance back at Ron, I swept out of the tent and into the common room. I went over to Harry's tent as quick as I could and luckily no one saw me. Once inside I felt a lot safer than when I was outside, because now there were walls protecting me from being seen.

I went over to harry and shook him awake, but I had to put his hand over his mouth when he woke because he almost shouted in shock of me being in there.

'Be quiet,' I whispered. 'I don't want to get caught.'

'Hermione, what on earth are you doing here?' Harry whispered looking astonished.

'I have to sleep in here for the night because I just can't stand Ron any more.'

There were some soft moans from Parvati's bed and then she said sleepily, 'What's going on?' Then, when she saw me she gasped in shock, and said 'Hermione, your not supposed to be here! You are breaking a HUGE rule and you might loose us 100 points!'

'Please,' I pleaded with them, 'I just can't go back to that tent, Ron is such a humongous pig, and he snores so loudly its crazy!'

'Wow hermione, you must really hate him; it really isn't like you breaking all these school rules and being a rebel!' Parvati exclaimed.

'I don't hate him that much, it's just i can't hear myself think with all the noise coming out of that boy,' I tried to explain.

'Awwwww come on hermione, I've had to sleep in the same room as him for over four years and I've never done anything this risky just so that I didn't need to sleep in the same room as him,' said Harry.

'Well i am sorry that we have different views about it, but please can you just let me sleep on your floor for tonight?' I begged.

'Okay,' said Parvati, 'As long as you are out of here really early in the morning so it doesn't look like you were here at all.'

'Sure' I said. I chucked my duvet and pillows on the floor and collapsed in a heap on top of them. Soon i was drifting off into undisturbed (no snoring) sleep.....


Ron's POV

When I woke up, I forgot all about the camping project, and the fact that I was in a tent. It scared me a little bit at first because I didn't know where I was, but when I remembered, I looked over at where Hermione was sleeping.

Or where she should have been sleeping.

At first I thought she was just under the covers, but when I looked closer I saw that there was no one there; her bed was completely empty.

I then thought she must have already got up and was in the great hall, but then when I saw the time, I knew that was out of the question. Although hermione was someone who got up way too early, she wouldn't be already in the great hall at six in the morning.

Then another thought struck me. I stumbled out of bed and over to the bathroom door. Then, knocking, I softly called, 'Hermione?'

There was no answer.

I knocked again. 'Hermione, are you in there?'

When there was no answer again, I pushed open the door and found that the bathroom was deserted as well. A lump began to form in my throat as I realized that something really bad might have happened to her, and I had just slept right through it. If that had been the case, I knew that i would regret it for the rest of my life.

As I walked back over to my bed, I began to feel very confused. She couldn't have left and gone into another tent could she? But that wasn't like her, to risk 100 points for Gryffindor; it was breaking so many school rules...

I was sitting cross-legged on my bed, my head cocked to one side, when Hermione walked in with her duvet and pillows. I couldn't help but notice the gush of relief that I felt because she was okay.

'Hermione, where were you?' I asked quickly. 'Are you alright?'

'I'm fine, absolutely fine.' She paused and then smiled at me. 'You can keep a secret, right?' she asked quietly. I raised an eye-brow but nodded all the same. I didn't like where this was heading.

'Er, well last night you were snoring really loudly, and I mean REALLY loudly, so I snuck out and slept in Harry and Parvati's tent for the night,' she blurted out all in one go.

 There was a pause. A very long pause.

I suddenly felt confused, angry and very hurt at the same time.

'So you risked 100 house points just so that you didn't have to sleep in the same room as me?' I asked calmly. I was surprised how calm I sounded.

'Er... yeah I guess so...' she trailed off.

We could both feel the tension in the air as there was another long pause.

'So you went off and had sleep overs with Harry even though you knew that you were risking the house championship for EVERYONE in this tower,' I asked, still softly but menacing.

'Ron... I -'

I cut her short. 'I thought you were supposed to be smart?' I shouted. My sudden outburst seemed to surprise her. 'I thought you were supposed to be the cleverest witch in our year.'

'What's that supposed to mean,' she whispered fearfully.

'Couldn't you just of put a silencing charm on me or a muffling thing if my snoring was really that bad?' I spat.

At this, her face reddened and I could tell she was embarrassed for not thinking of that.

'You know what the worst part is?' I carried on but in a whisper. 'I was seriously worried about you this morning, I was scared that something had happened to you, but all you were doing was having a party with Harry without a care in the world for any one else, let alone me.'

The last part really seemed to get to her, because although she already knew I was angry and pissed off with her, she hadn't felt the hurt that I was feeling until then.

'Ron, please, I'm so -'

I cut her off again by shoving past her and slamming the bathroom door in her face.


Hermione's POV

As a tear streamed down my face, I knew that I really regretted what I did tonight.
