Disclaimer : I don't own any of it but the story.
Summary and A/N : This is based on the movie The Notebook. I've never read the book before so it'll probably be different from that too. In this first chapter you'll see some differences like the old people who narrate the whole movie from beginning to end. I left them out, sorry if you like them!! And the Ferris wheel scene (which is my fav part ;-)) where Noah askes Allie to go out with him, I didn't want to copy to much even if it fitted Fred's character a lot. I hope you enjoy it.
It was just another well spent day with the Weasley clan (plus Harry), full of life and laughter, that Hermione always enjoyed. Hermione, who was now 19 and worked for the Ministry and Head of the S.P.E.W. dept. had just come back from the carnival. Her messy, curly hair was pulled back in a pony-tail and she was laying across her bed remembering the past events of the day...
At the carnival
"Honestly Harry! Even Bill's 4 year old daughter will ride the Ferris wheel," she said matter-of-factly all the while playfully laughing at him, "Come on, please ride it with me?"
"I told you about the story of me and Dudley on that thing once..that's why I'm not going on it. I mean it's not like I'm scared of going on it or anything.." which was a lie!
"Oh right, cause the almighty Harry Potter isn't scared of anything, right?"
"Exactly," he said beaming proud that he had tricked Hermione into not taking him on that thing!
"Ha! Well, I've made up my mind and your coming on it with me whether you like it or not."
Instantly, Harry's 'beam of pride' fell and with that, she dragged him through the noisy crowd and onto the ride, not noticing as she did so, that a certain red-head had been watching her the whole time.
"Come on Fred! You've liked the girl for 4 BLOODY years..wait did I say like? I meant obsessed about! Now ask the woman out already."
"Oh shut-up George. I will..later," at that moment George gave him a death glare, "Okay okay I'll ask her when she gets off the carousel with Harry, alright?"
"Fine, but if you don't, you owe me 5 galleons."
"WHAT!! Oh fine you greedy, no good twin."
George just laughed at this and went to go find Charlie. You see, the Weasleys were still pretty poor, but also the nicest of people, while Hermione came from a wealthy family. Both her parents were successful orthodontists.
Just then Fred noticed that Harry and Hermione had stepped off the ride, well Hermione did, Harry ran straight for the men's room looking a bit pale. Ha....poor bloke, but that meant that him and Hermione were alone and now was his chance.
"Harry has faced Voldemort 5 times, destroyed him, fallen off a broomstick about 50 feet, flown in a car with Ron, but he can't take a simple Ferris wheel ride? Now something's wrong with this picture." Hermione just laughed at his comment and while she did so he couldn't help but notice how beautiful she looked.
"Yeah, I can't believe it either," there was a bit of awkward silence, "So, how about we go and play that game over there where you throw the ball and hit as many bottles as you can. If I win then you have to buy me that teddy bear and if you win the..um.."
"Then you have to go on a date with me tomorrow."
Did he just say what I thought he did? Certainly not! Why would he want to go out with me..but hey! Why am I complaining. Maybe I wanted to go out with him on a date...
"Okay, deal. You're on!"
Okay, this will be a piece of cake. Throwing a ball and hitting bottles? I've had plenty of practice when me and George would throw Quaffles at Oliver's head when he wouldn't let us take a break from Quidditch practice after 2 straight hours of drills!!! I swear..mental that one.
HPOV (A/N sorry for the constant changes in POV but this is the last time..promise! Lol)
"Well, Mrs. Granger it looks like your lucky self has got a date with me."
"Your calling me lucky? More like unfortunate," I said jokingly.
"Ouch, watch it, I could make tomorrow's date a bad one if I wanted to," he said smiling.
I was getting ready to tell him that he better not, but Mrs. Weasley had just come up.
"I've been looking all over for you two. I told you Fred to meet me back at the entrance at 11:00 so we can go back to the Burrow," she said sternly and then turned to me and added more nicely, "And Hermione, dear, I don't want your parents to be worrying about you all night."
"Oh! Yes, of course. I didn't realize how late it had gotten...I better go. Thank you Mrs. Weasley, I had a great time! Bye Fred."
"Bye Hermione." he said softly.
20 minutes later
I rushed up the stairs to my house and into the formal living room.
"Your thirty minutes late dear, I was starting to worry." What is it with mom s and worrying when you are late?
"Sorry mama, just lost track of time I guess. I'm going upstairs and going to get ready for bed. Tell daddy I said goodnight." And with that I rushed upstairs counting down the hours till tomorrow...
A/N - So how was that? Lol. I'm not that great with first chapters and introductions but hey! It still works. I'm already halfway through the second chapter which I like a lot better. Suggestions? Comments? Any kind of reviews I don't care! Thanks for taking the time to read this sorry if you didn't like it!! Sweetie07
I'll try and make next chapter longer! And I'll update in 1-3 days. Oh! And if you haven't seen this movie I highly recommend it! Its really good!
