I'm Home

Fred never wanted to be in love. But here he was, falling head over heels for his brother's best friend. ((I only own the plot. Characters belong to J.K.

2. I Never Thought

I never thought that
You would be the one to hold my heart
But you came around
And you knocked me off the ground from the start

Fred Weasley sat beside his twin brother George as the first years filed into the Great Hall, laughing at a comment Lee Jordan made about them seemingly getting shorter. Fred stood and looked over the crowd of students' heads, looking for his younger brother Ron. Upon spotting him, he felt a leap in his chest as he noticed who he was with. Harry Potter, and a young girl with bushy brown hair and a short stature. She fidgeted with her robes, her nose wrinkling cutely as she spoke to herself under her breath, her mouth barely moving. Her hair caught the light of the candles, giving it a sleek appearance.

Fred's eyes were glued to the girl as he slowly sat back down in his seat, his face turning a slight pink. How could a first year look so... so perfect?! He rested his chin in his hands, a small smile tugging at his lips. She certainly seemed interesting... very bookish. Fred wouldn't be surprised if she turned out to be the smartest witch in the class. As the sorting hat finished it's song, and the actual sorting began, Fred waited anxiously for the girl to be called.

Finally, after what seemed like ages, her name was announced. "Granger, Hermione!" the sorting hat cried out, and Fred felt a small smile spread across his lips. Hermione... What a pretty name, he thought dreamily. He let out a small laugh as Hermione rushed up the stool, sat on it, and crammed the sorting hat onto her head.

Almost immediately the hat shouted, "GRYFFINDOR!" and the table exploded with clapping and cheering. Fred faintly heard George call his name and shake his shoulder as he stared at Hermione in a daze, a grin as wide as the sun on his face. He quickly moved aside to allow her to sit next to him, and his heart leaped in his chest when she hesitantly yet happily sat beside him.

"Hello! I'm Hermione Granger. And you are?" she asked in a somewhat polite tone, raising an eyebrow at the two twins as they stared at her, Fred quickly stuck out his hand and Hermione accepted it, shaking it with a firm grip. Pointing to his twin Fred said, "This here is George, and I'm his twin brother Fred. Fred Weasley." Hermione nodded to George in greeting before turning back to watch the sorting. Fred noticed that her gaze would hover over Ron every once in a while, a small smile on her lips. He quickly hid his fists under the table as they instinctively clenched.

"So, is he your brother? He looks a lot like you," Hermione said, pointing at Ron. Fred opened his mouth to reply when Percy butted in with a nod and pushed Fred aside slightly so he could talk to the girl more directly. Fred watched in slight envy as the two of them chatted away about pretty much anything that came to their minds. He listened closely, just to see if he could learn anything new about the girl.

"Oh, I'm a muggleborn! My parents are dentist- er, people who clean and take care of teeth," Fred heard Hermione say, and he raised his eyebrows in surprise.
