AN: Good afternoon everyone and happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having a good day, I know I am. I've been on a great writing tangent all morning. I hope to update my other stories as much as possible today and this week. Once again anything you recognize is JK Rowling's and anything you don't is mine.
I woke to bushy curls trying to smother me. Bush curls? Hermione! I sat up and looked down. Hermione was sprawled across my chest her curls spread out around her head like a halo. She was snoring softly. Deep purple circles were under her eyes and I sighed. It looked like she hadn't been sleeping any better than I had been.
"Mmmm," Hermione sighed clutching me tighter to her. I ran my hand down her back and she shivered in her sleep. "Mmhmm Harry?"
"Go back to sleep baby, it's the middle of the night." I muttered pressing a kiss to her hair. She sighed and rubbed her head against my chest. I blinked and swallowed thickly. It felt good to have her in my arms again. Very good. Amazing actually.
"I love you Hermione." I whispered breathily. Hermione didn't respond, in fact I think she was snoring softly again. She was already asleep. I shook my head and chuckled and made myself comfortable, thinking about the past few weeks without Hermione. It had been horrible. It had shown me what life without Hermione would be like, and I had hated it. There was only one thing to do... and I had plan. It would be perfect... it had to be...
"Harry, we don't have to do this." I whispered looking around at the fancy restaurant. Harry smiled and led me past the maître d' who nodded at us.
"Yes we do. I'm taking my girl out to nice restaurant after not talking for three weeks. That is three too many baby." Harry said stopping at a table that was on a small platform in the middle of the room.
"Holy Hufflepuffs Harry! You must have spent a fortune." I said as he pulled out the chair for me to sit. He chuckled as I slowly sat down trying to avoid eye contact with any of the other patrons.
"Only the best for you baby." Harry said sitting down across from me a slow smile spreading across his face.
"Only the best huh?" I asked and he nodded smiling widely.
"You're sweet Harry." I said holding his hand across the table. His thumb stroked the back of my hand and it made me shiver.
"I try," he said with a shrug and a sheepish smile. I giggled and we ordered our food by speaking to the plates. The food appeared with a little pop a moment later. Harry ordered ribs while I ordered chicken. It tasted wonderful and the portions were the perfect size.
Harry and I talked all through dinner trying to figure out how everything went so wrong between us. It didn't take us long to figure out that we needed to communicate more and assume less. Assuming things only got us into trouble. I had assumed he saw my note and didn't want me around. Harry assumed that I thought it was unmanly to show feelings.
"It's not," I assured Harry the moment he said it.
"Yes it is, Uncle Vernon always said it was." I gave Harry a long look before speaking. "If your Uncle said it was a bad thing it probably wasn't."
"Huh... you're probably right." Harry said leaning back slightly in his chair a pensive look on his face. After a moment it cleared and he smiled brightly. "Ready for desert?"
"Sure but why don't you order for me." I said smiling.
"I would love to." There was something about the look in Harry's green eyes that was making me think he was planning something.
Harry leaned over the table and said clearly, "Chocolate cake," it appeared a moment later. There was a piece of perfect chocolate cake on the plate.
Harry picked up his fork and smiled, "Dig in baby," I shrugged and forked a piece of cake into my mouth. It was absolutely amazing and melted the moment it touched my tongue.
"Oh this is amazing," I whispered breathily popping another piece into my mouth. Harry chuckled and took a sip of his butterbeer.
"I had a feeling you would like it." He said smiling. I smiled back and took another bite of cake.
"I'm glad you ordered it," I mumbled around my fork.
"So am I," Harry said his eyes glittering strangely. I frowned and opened my mouth to say something but he nodded at the now empty plate. My eyes flicked down to the clean plate. I gasped at the silver diamond ring sitting on the plate. "Harry —"
"Shhh, baby, let me do this right." Harry said pushing away from the table. I gasped as he picked up the ring and slowly knelt to one knee. The patrons all stopped talking but I only had eyes for Harry.
"Hermione, I love you. I've loved you for years. These past weeks without you have been truly horrible and the thought of being without you ever again is the worst form of torture I could ever think. Hermione we are meant to be together. Please baby make me the happiest man alive and become my wife." I was still staring at Harry in shock, my mouth slightly open. Harry asked me to marry him. My best friend and love asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. It was shocking and a little soon but somehow I knew this would happen anyway. Harry was right, we were meant to be together.
Harry's eyes clouded with concern when I didn't respond. For some reason my voice didn't seem to want to work and I nodded frantically tears trickling down my cheeks. A glorious smile crossed Harry's face and he pulled me into his arms crushing his lips to mine. I barely heard the people in the restaurant clapping and cheering, I was too lost in Harry's brilliant smile and his wide green eyes.
"I love you," I whispered resting my forehead against his, "I love you so much."
"I love you too," Harry whispered before pressing his lips to mine again in a much more tender kiss. It was absolutely perfect and somehow I knew everything between us would work out fine. We would be together forever. And to think... it all started with Harry taking me to get my wisdom teeth out and what I said to him. I would have to thank my parents for forcing me to get them out but for now I would be perfectly happy kissing Harry James Potter, my fiance, the love of my life.
AN: And that is the end of this lovely little story. I hope you all enjoyed the ride. I know I sure did. If you ever have a request don't be afraid to ask. Have a lovely day and please keep reading fanfiction.
