SoMe wEirDo: Hey, I tried to make it longer with this chapter, but not too long. I hope that you like it!
Disclaimer: I no own, you no sue. Got it?
And, if anyone was wondering what song Hermione was humming, it's "Numa Numa" by Ozone, and it's in Romanian. Listen to it sometime. The Romanian version is MUCH better than the English version. Anyways, on with the story!
Chapter 9: Trying to Explain
Harry walked to the Great Hall for lunch with Ron and Hermione. Unbeknownst to Hermione, he had sent a note to Cedric before they had left for Defense Against the Dark Arts, which was their first class of the day. He knew that Cedric would get it at lunch, which was exactly when he needed him to get it. He hoped that Cedric would come. As Hedwig flew over to Cedric, Harry remembered what the note said.
I need to talk to you. Meet me in the library after lunch.
Cedric looked up at Harry and nodded to say, "I'll be there." Then he turned back to his friends, wondering what Harry had to talk to him about.
As they stood up to leave, Harry turned to Hermione and said, "Hey, Hermione. Come with me to the library quickly, all right?"
Hermione nodded and followed Harry, leaving behind a very confused Ron.
When they got to the library, Harry sat down at a table right by the entrance.
Hermione looked at Harry, confused, and said, "Harry, why are you just sitting there? Are you waiting for someone?"
Harry opened his mouth to reply when, as if on cue, the door opened. Hermione turned around and was shocked. "Cedric, what are you doing here?"
Cedric looked just as shocked as Hermione, but quickly recovered, saying, "Harry sent me a note, asking me to meet him here."
Hermione smirked slightly and said, "That's funny. Harry asked me to come here with him."
Cedric turned to Harry and said, "Harry, would you care to explain why you asked the both of us to come down here?"
Harry threw up his hands and sighed. "Fine, you caught me. I wanted to get you both here so that you could talk out your problems." (A/N: Sorry if he sounds a bit like a talk show host here.)
Hermione looked at Cedric and sat down, saying, "Fine. Let's talk."
"Yes, let's." Cedric said, pulling a chair up to the table and sitting. "Tell me, why were you kissing Krum?"
Hermione sighed, exasperated. "I already told you, but you wouldn't listen! Anyway, I was waiting for you when I felt a hand on my shoulder. I thought that it was you, so I turned around and gave the person a kiss. I didn't realize that it was Viktor until you dropped your books. That's why I was kissing him!"
Harry interrupted, and said, "Wait, wait, wait. You kissed Krum without checking who it was first? Hermione, for all you know, it could have been Malfoy that you kissed! What were you thinking!"
Hermione sighed again, and said, "You're right, I wasn't thinking. And I feel really bad for it. I'm sorry that I got you mad at me, Cedric. It's just that…I didn't think that anyone else would be at the library then. I didn't think that Viktor would be in there, too."
"Hey, Hermione, speaking of, I think that Krum's got a crush on you. I mean, every time you're in the library, he's in there, too, isn't he? And he was there that day, when you wanted to meet Cedric in the library." Harry said, smiling at his logic.
"Do you really think that Viktor has a crush on me?" Hermione said, blushing.
"I don't think so, I KNOW so." Harry said, smirking just a bit. "You know, for being the smartest witch in school, you're a little dumb in some topics. Like, you can't even tell that Krum has had a crush on you all year!"
Hermione smacked him in the arm. "I'm not stupid! I just never noticed!"
Cedric was watching the whole scene, trying not to laugh. "Hermione, come here." When she walked over to him, he leaned down and said, "I forgive you, but next time, please check before you kiss someone." Then he kissed her, and all was forgiven.
Hermione smiled as they pulled away, and turned to Harry and said, "Thanks, Harry. I think that this helped us a lot." She leaned over and gave Harry a quick kiss on the cheek. Then she walked out with Cedric and Harry.
As they walked out, Cedric said, "Hermione, you don't like Krum more than me, do you?"
Hermione laughed and playfully smacked his arm. "Of course not! Why would I? I love you, Cedric. Not Viktor, you." Then they went their separate ways, since they were late for class.
