4. How Many Times

How many times will let you me change my mind and turn around
I can't decide if I'll let you save my life or if I'll drown

"Hermione, I'm sorry!" Fred yelled after the retreating brunette, a slightly annoyed look on his face. "But I'm pretty sure you said we were done! So why do you care so much that I went to the Yule Ball with Angelina?" Hermione whirled around, her expression cold. Before she could say anything, Fred let out a bitter laugh.

"Besides, you like Krum don't you? And I see how you've been eyeing Harry and my brother. You just can't make up your mind can you?!" Fred snapped angrily. Hermione huffed and shook her head in disbelief. "Yes, I fancy Krum, but where did you get Harry and Ron from? Honestly, you're such an idiot when you try!" Hermione spat back. Fred bit his lip to stop himself from replying. He'd wanted to apologize to Hermione, not make things worse.

"Either way, I'm sorry. I didn't even want to go to the ball with Angelina," Fred muttered, shifting uncomfortably. Geez, that was a first. Since when did he get uncomfortable. Hermione looked at her ex-boyfriend in confusion, tilting her head slightly and studying him.

"What do you mean? Of course you wanted to. You practically leaped at the chance to ask her to the ball when we went our separate ways," Hermione said pointedly, folding her arms across her chest. Fred sighed in exasperation and rolled his eyes to the heavens, wondering what he was ever going to do with her. A small smile graced his lips and he looked back at her, his eyes lit up.

"I only went with her to make George jealous, and to make you jealous. See, both of us knew George would never ask Angelina to the dance even though he has feelings for her since he's too shy. Plus, Angelina said that she would help me with my relationship with you in any way she could, so she owed me one. When we found out you were going to the dance with Krum, we decided we'd go to the dance together." Hermione's confusion turned to suspicion in almost a split second.

"Then why did you kiss? You two were practically eating each others faces off," Hermione sneered. Fred laughed. "That was George, stupid! He got fed up with me taking his girl and left the date he had for the ball. They were snogging for a long, long time," Fred said with a snicker. Hermione stared at him for a moment before flinging her arms around him, burying her face in his chest.

"I'm sorry," she said quietly, looking up at him timidly. Fred smiled and kissed her forehead gently before returning her embrace. "That's alright, Granger. I suppose I can open up a spot for you under my arm," Fred teased, and Hermione gave him a playful shove. Fred's smile turned a bit sad as they walked back to the common room hand in hand, chatting about little things. He'd missed this, and it pained him to know that it wouldn't last. He could never keep a girl, especially one he didn't deserve.
