There was a nice breeze as Hermione walked towards the tree that stood near the Black Lake. She knew she was running late but was relieved that Fred didn't seem to be there yet. Her hair was done in an elegant style, and as she resisted the urge to stare at the earth as she walked, she nervously played with her dress. She hoped Fred saw the effort she put in for him.
She leaned against the trunk and gazed off into the distance. She shifted her weight slightly when she saw Fred jogging towards her, and squeaked "Fred," when her shoulder brushed against something that felt odd against her bare skin
She glanced over her shoulder and saw the destroyed spiderweb and started jumping around, trying to get it off of her. She might not have Ron's irrational fear of spiders, but she hated the feeling of their webs on her skin. "Fred, help me," she begged, just wanting to get it off of her.
Fred laughed and took out his wand, banishing the web from her.
She breathed a sigh of relief. "Wow, Mr. Weasley, I'm impressed."
"Your hair is a bit of a mess," he pointed out with a finger.
She blushed and fingered her head of curls. "Of course it is," she sighed dejectedly.
He leaned down and kissed her cheek. "You're still beautiful, though."
Her heart fluttered at the soft proclamation. "You always know the right thing to say."
Fred grinned and took her hand, leading her away from the Black Lake.
