Day Three (Hermione slaps Ron) by @wali_yah
"Your filthy parents should have named you Scary instead of Scarlett.", Bellatrix snapped, as I entered their common room.
She was the only one there, probably the only one awake. I advised her to wake up the others, while I prepared their breakfast. They might say I'm evil, but my food is great and they get a lot. While the pancakes were kept warm by the oven, I prepared the strawberries.
"Good morning.", Draco addressed me and smiled, as he entered the kitchen.
He probably tried getting on my good side, but I ignored it. Returning to the living room, the bowl of strawberries with me, I grabbed the next letter. I carefully read through it and grinned satisfied.
"Today, the task is by @wali_yah for," I announced, whisked my wand, making an invisible drum, roll, "Hermione and Ron."
They turned their heads, to look at each other and grinned widely, probably believing, they would have to make out.
"Actually, it's only for you Hermione.", I explained to them and they looked at me, puzzled, "The original task, is for you, to slap Ron across the face, but I was asked to add something mean. So, you will have to tell Ron, why you actually forgave him in 6th year."
Hermione's face went pale all of a sudden and I smirked, so did Bellatrix. Their reactions showed me, how well chosen my dare was.
"I don't want to do this.", Hermione squealed and Ron took her in his arms.
"We'll be alright.", he whispered but she continued embracing him tightly.
"Get over with it.", I groaned and they let go of each other.
"I only forgave you back then, because you whispered my name in the hospital wing, while Lavender and I had a row.", she admitted and slapped him in the face.
It was a loud and probably hurting smack, as Ron's hand drew to his face. How clear it had been, that Hermione would become aggressive, thinking about Ron and Lavender. Ron's cheek turned red and he pushed her away. Watching them, argue over stuff that happened few years ago, it came to my mind, that Lord Voldemort and Harry had been in the same house for three days and none of them had complained.
"@wali_yah hopes you like it, Ron.", I read aloud, getting back to the actual events.
Draco looked pleased by the whole situtation, probably glad about not being forced to do anything himself. On top of that, thinking his friendly attitude towards me was the reason, he didn't get picked this time.
