Today's To Do List for Mrs. Hermione Weasley.
1 I must be sure to check on Harry.
2. I must purchase new socks for Ron, as his old ones are growing increasingly ratty.
3. I must finish reading that fascinating article in "Wizard's Digest" about the witch who completed her Auror exams while giving birth. It seemed very intriguing.
And so on and so forth.
Day after day, I write these lists. I always have been one for organization as you may have guessed. I think lists just tidy everything up a bit, and give me a sense of order. So, day after day as soon as I wake up I sit down to write my list. And every day I start the list the exact same way.
1. I must be sure to check on Harry.
I always put Harry first. I can't help it. Be it best friend's instinct or what have you. I can't help but thinking of him as soon as I wake. I'll never forget the time Ron actually had the gaul or boredom, you decide to read one of my lists.
"Hermione, dear? Why exactly did you write on here how urgent it is to check on Harry today? We saw him yesterday. He was fine." He said quizzically.
I just sigh because I always put Harry first. I put my own wedding on hold for him. When he had a nightmare of the final battle the evening before my big day, who was whispering to him softly outside the church, holding my veil in one hand and his hand in my other. Saying that things would get better, I just knew that they would. As two hundred of my closest friends and family sat inside impatiently waiting for me to walk down the isle to my betrothed. There I sat, forgetting my duties of marriage, all for the sake of my best friend. Not that I've ever had any romantic feelings towards Harry. Never, if anything I feel like his mother, or his un-Petunia like aunt at the very least. I worry incessantly as I'm sure you already knew as well, but it's even worse when it comes to him. It's always worse when it comes to him. Whether it be feelings of sadness, or confusion.
I really do try to not do it, I don't want to put Harry before myself, or Ron, I just can't help it. I always think of his needs before my own. When I find out about some heartbreaking news or something of the like, I don't first think about how I feel about it, my immediate reaction is to find out if Harry is alright. I worry if he's hungry, or angry, or feeling neglected. I know he can take care of himself, but I just feel like he's never really known someone who worries about him every single second like a real mother would do. Like my mother does. And it's that nagging feeling in the back of my mind that forever makes me put Harry first.
And even though I try to stop, I don't think I ever really will. The day of the birth of my first child, as soon as I get that baby out of me, I'll be owling Harry to see if he's okay with me being a mother, checking to see if he's eaten that day. On every anniversary of me and Ronald's marriage before wishing him happy however many years we make it to, I will first check on Harry to make sure he's not feeling lonely. I will always put Harry first. Always. But, I really cannot think of this any longer however. I really must go to bed, I have a busy day ahead of me.
Come to think of it, I should give myself a head start and begin to make my morning's list now.
