Spin

He grinned at her. It was an infuriating grin, and he knew it. But he did it, just to annoy her.

He felt his heart jump into his throat when her lips twitched a bit, rather than settling into her usual scowl.

He had been running for so long. Perhaps he was finally catching up.

I'd rather chase your shadow all my life

than be afraid of my own

He found that he was tired of waiting. He'd been waiting for her for over seven years now. The war was over. It was time for them all to move on, to push past beyond what they knew.

He wanted to lose himself in her.

I'd rather be with you

I'd rather not know

where I'll be than be alone and convinced that I know

She stood up and walked away, laughing and talking with Remus. A crazy grin crossed his face as an idea bloomed in his head. He wondered how she'd react if he just grabbed her, right here, in front of everyone.

She drove him mad.

and the world keeps spinning round

my world's upside down and I wouldn't change a thing

I've got nothing else to lose

For the millionth time, he wondered if she didn't think of him the way he thought of her. She was everything to him. He'd lost everything the moment he'd saw her for the first time. He had a feeling that she knew. She always knew. He also guessed that she rather enjoyed the effect she had on him.

I lost it all when I found you and I wouldn't change thing

no you and I wouldn't change a thing

This was it. He was ready. She was standing by one of the trees, off by herself. She was the one thing that he needed.

She loved it just as much as he did.

Everything I know has let me down

so I will just let go

let you turn me inside out

cause I know I'm not sure

about anything but you wouldn't have it any other way

When she heard him approaching, she turned. When she saw him, a shy little smile appeared on her mouth.

Everything went blurry for a moment.

and the world keeps spinning round

my world's upside down and I wouldn't change a thing

I've got nothing else to lose

I lost it all when I found you and I wouldn't change thing

no you and I wouldn't change a thing

He didn't say anything. He just kissed her. She made a small noise of indignant surprise, but relaxed.

His world began to spin.

spinning, turning, watching, burning

all my life has found its meaning

walking, crawling, climbing, falling

all my life has found its meaning

They broke apart. She smiled. In that moment, he knew.

you and I wouldn't change a thing

no you and I wouldn't change a thing

"Ron, you did it! You shut her up!"

Ron ignored his brother. Hermione glanced slightly at his family, biting her lip. She wasn't used to the attention.

"Hermione?"

Her eyes flicked to him. "Ron," she hissed, "as much as I enjoyed that-" she flushed slightly "-what could your family be thinking?!"

He shook his head. "Who cares?"

Ignoring her stammers of protest, he kissed her again. She was quiet.

Their world spun.
