It was the beginning of August and Hermione Granger was waiting as patiently as possible for her parents to finish getting ready. They were driving her into London to have lunch with Mr. and Mrs. Weasley at the Leaky Cauldron before she was set to spend the remaining of the summer at the Burrow. At the moment she had herself seated on top of her school trunk in the living room, book in hand trying to distract herself as she waited, too bad it wasn't working in the slightest. This year instead of just letting her floo or take the Knight Bus to the Burrow, her parents insisted on driving her to meet them. Sitting there trying to concentrate on her book, foot jiggling with impatience her mind kept wondering to a certain red head she was going to see hopefully soon.
At the end of the previous year, she realized she had liked him more than his brothers who she was just as close to. Although she was unsure of how he would react, thinking he would just believe she was trying to pull a fast on over him, never thinking more of her than the bushy haired goody-goody book worm she desperately wanted him to see her as more. Should she just come right out and tell him, should she try and flirt with him to get it a crossed, Yes Hermione Jane Granger could and would if she had to openly flirt with a boy. She could always just say,'Hey I fancy you--
Her train of though was cut off as her mother walked into the room,"Hermione dear, we're ready. Do you have everything you need, all your books, clothes, list of supplies you need for the school year, enough money?"
Thinking for a second to double check in her mind,"Yeah, Mum I have everything I need, where's dad? If he doesn't hurry up we're going to be late."
"I'm right here dear, don't worry so much we will get there on time"
An hour and a lot of whining later, all on Hermione's part they were a few blocks away from the Leaky Cauldron. Why or why couldn't they have let her go by floo, if they had she would have been there an hour ago, and be hanging out with everyone.
"Honey we know you want to spend time with your friends," her mum began," we just thought we should get to know the Weasleys' better since you spend so much time there. It would be so much easier for us if we had other parents we could talk to and as much as you say about them we figured why not get to know them."
"I know mum. how much longer?"
"Not long 10, 15 minutes tops." Her father said from behind the wheel.
30 minutes later Hermione was sitting with her parents in the Leaky Cauldron with Mr. and Mrs. Weasley. They where getting on grandly. Her mum and Mrs. Weasley about what Bill and Charlie are doing now that they're out of school and her dad was being asked every question under the sun about muggles by Mr. Weasley.
"Oh Hermione dear, Fred and I think George too where going to come her in a bit to do some shopping, you could go with them if you need to get your supplies for school. I don't think Ron or Harry would mind you coming a little later." Mrs. Weasley said as lunch was winding down.
Smiling,"Yes I think I will do that."
"Just make sure they don't buy out the joke shop." Said Mr. Weasley laughing a bit.
Before she could reply Fred popped out of the fire place and walked over to say hello to them all, "Hey mum, dad, Mr. Granger, Mrs. Granger, nice to meet you, Hello Hermione."
As they where exchanging their greetings George had came threw the fire place and walked over to the table smirking.
30 minutes before at the Burrow.
"So, Fred why exactly to you have to go to Diagon Alley today?" George asked his brother, he knew exactly why he wanted to go today, he just wanted to torment him a little by making him say it out loud. George knew the real reason, he had heard his brother mumbling in his sleep that night.
"I already told you, I have some things I need to get!" Fred yelled at his brother, as he was becoming completely annoyed.
"I just told you, bloody things, damn it. I'm not 5 if you don't want to come you don't have to, I don't need you to hold my hand." With that he walked out of the room.
After George had said hello to everyone and Hermione had said good bye to her parents the three where off down the street of Diagon Alley.
"So where to first?" Fred asked as he walked in between his brother and Hermione.
"I have to get my books for school, but if you'd like I could just meet you guys later on." she said.
" No it's cool, I wanted to look for a book anyway." Fred said
"As amusing as going shopping for books sounds, I see Lee so, have fun and don't do anything I wouldn't do." he said,"It looks like you have found what you where looking for Fred." George whispered to his brother as he left.
