Milk Chocolate Frog chapter 31 . 12/11/2021
" "You snore like a...a drunken manticore with a head cold!" she fired from beneath him. Ron could see she was trying desperately to contain the smile that threatened on her face at the ridiculous insult.

"You love it!" He laughed at the amusing image she'd conjured, but her laughter faded. She stopped trying to push his arms away.

"I do," she replied softly with almost no hesitation. He stopped trying to grapple with her.

"And I love you", he stated simply in reply. "

"Tonight, she was nestled securely in his arms and he could actually feel each breath against him. He thought about a life of falling asleep next to Hermione. Not marriage and babies and other equally terrifying thoughts, but a lifetime of just this, the two of them together. For the first time, he realised what everybody already seemed to back in Gryffindor Tower two weeks ago.

They had their whole lives ahead of them. This was just the start."

"He wondered how it could be that there was so much he wished hadn't happened and yet so much he was grateful for that had. Like this moment and the warm familiar sense of comfort her touch brought him as she slid her hand to his chest and drew him to her in a hug. The street lamps around them came on and the passerbys on the pavement grew fewer in number. People were having supper, returning to their homes. He knew they should do the same, but he didn't dare move. The longer he sat on the bench with her nestled against him, the more the morbid thoughts slipped from his mind and he could think about the feel of her breasts pressed against his arm and her hand on his chest and her head on his shoulder. The more he thought about her, the more his eyes drank in the sight of Brisbane and the reality of being here."

The way I see it, Hermione needed to hear the full story of what had happened or not between Ron and Lavender in order to move on from the issue. Ron felt shameful about the one time when he had let things go too far, and so he didn't want to tell Hermione about it in case it made her think less of him - but chances are that she was imagining way worse in her mind, just like he was imagining that much more than three innocent kisses had happened between her and Krum.

So I think that part of this chapter was about Ron learning honesty in a relationship: honesty to say "I'm sorry", and to say it first. Honesty to tell the other what they need to hear even when it's something that you're ashamed of. And it's no surprise that the part about the locket and Ron's desertion in the winter showed up, because it's also something that he's ashamed of, and something that she needed to hear as well. And lastly, it's also about learning to leave the past behind, focus on what you have in the present, and move forward together.

" "We've been through a lot," she stated simply and nodded her head in recognition. "But I like to think that things had to happen the way they did for us to get here. You and me." "

One of my favourite chapters for its amazing descriptions of sceneries all around the world! I kept looking up foreign words and placenames as I read out of curiosity. How do you know all those things? You're incredible! :D

But as a jealous person too, I have to admit that this part below struck a cord, so this is the one that I chose to quote:

"He didn't know how to apologise for being jealous. He didn't ever think about it or contemplate why he felt the way he did, he just felt it. She wanted an apology though, he knew she did, but he wasn't the only one in the wrong. She'd been jealous too, just the same as he was, whether over a simple kiss or something more. So maybe she should be the one to apologise. Maybe they should both apologise. Or maybe neither had to say they were sorry for wanting to be the only people to kiss each other. It was only human, after all. He reckoned it only meant they both cared."

"Ron felt a small triumph. Krum could have his bloody library and his second home and his personal chef and his rakia.

He had Hermione."

"This world, where only the two of them existed, was quite wonderful. This world where they tasted and flirted and touched and there was no one there to interrupt or tell them there were more important things to worry about."

"He stared closely at the tiny freckles across the bridge of her nose, the blemishes on her cheek, the hint of toothpaste that was at the corner of her mouth, and the lone eyelash on her cheek. She was perfect. Literally fucking perfect in every way. He hated how long it had taken him to realise that. He hated how much he'd screwed things up last year. He hated that it made her sad. All he wanted to do was make her smile. They'd had enough sadness in the past years for a whole lifetime. He reckoned the world owed them some happiness. So he lay awake with her against him, planning nothing but ways to make her smile. He would brush his teeth first thing when they woke up. He'd pay attention to directions when they got to Sofia. He'd let her tell him stories about the history of every city they visited even if he didn't care. He'd learn more about Muggle things and talk about electricity every chance he could. He'd give her another foot rub. He'd talk about trips they would take together because she seemed to like when he talked about the future and inluded her in it. He wanted her to smile like that all the time."

" "Step one," he repeated quietly then and he moved both hands up to her face as he did. He heard her breath catch at the gentle caress and he did his best to repress a smile and remain serious. Wine tasting was deep and dark and complex, after all. He brushed her lips softly, taking first her top lip between his and then her bottom. Then he withdrew. "Step two." He moved back in now to deepen the kiss, rolling his tongue over hers just like she told him to do with the wine. Now he could taste the black cherries. "And step three." He pulled away ever-so-slowly, letting his lips linger over hers as he did. He waited a moment, licking his lips softly before opening his eyes, his face mere inches from hers and his breath warm on her face. "Did I leave an impression?" he whispered teasingly."

"All he knew was she'd let him be sad; so he'd let her not make sense for once in her life."

" "Say 'you are very pretty'," he requested teasingly.

"Tu es très jolie," Hermione replied quietly and pushed a wet strand of hair behind her head at the back-handed compliment.

"Say 'you are beautiful'," he pressed with a smile, pleased that their playful banter seemed to take her mind off their situation for at least a few minutes.

"Tu es belle."

"Tu es belle," Ron practiced. "Tu es belle." "

" "Take care of her." His mum reached out then and cupped his face in her hands, tilting his chin down toward her. He could se her eyes were wet with tears. "She's taken care of you this week...and now it's your turn." "

" "How much do they know about me?" he changed the conversation quite suddenly as he looked to a photo of him in his Quidditch uniform. There was nobody else in the picture. It was just him and his broom, taken after their victory over Ravenclaw last spring. Ron wasn't entirely sure who'd taken the photo or how Hermione had gotten it. It looked a bit worn around the edges."

"Telling her what had kept him awake tonight felt like exposing a part of him he didn't want Hermione to see though. Of course, she'd seen ugly parts of him before. She probably knew him better than anyone in the world, better than Harry even. She'd seen him jealous and proud, angry and hateful. Those weaknesses of his heart, the same ones that still had him grasping at straws to bring back his brother, were things he didn't want her to see. He'd always made himself strong for her. He cracked jokes even when he was terrified, made her laugh when all he wanted to do was cry. Only in the last week did he realise how much he had let himself go."

"The fireworks continued to burst overhead and he heard everybody continue to delight in the display. He could even hear a few murmurs and giggles that he guessed were directed at them, but Hermione didn't withdraw like he thought she might. Her mouth came alive against his and beneath the fireworks for a little while longer, he let himself forget the reason they were bursting overhead."
