Summary: Harry and Dean are peacefully sleeping when they are discovered.
Author's Note: Okay, BIG change. I realized the way I ended last chapter would've meant that I would have had to write a longish story, which I didn't want to do. Hell, this started as a one shot. So I've changed the end of last chapter, and only the end. I've even put it here for you guys. And of course, what would come next? My begging for your apology. I'm SO sorry it took me a year to finish this. Everything in my life has been so hectic, I couldn't write a single word down. But then summer came, and I can now relax. I hope you all enjoy.
"Of course! Except that Neville might be a bit traumatized. He was the one that stayed behind and heard you guys going at it." Ron said.
"He did?" Harry's face immediately turned red. Dean chuckled and hid Harry in his arms.
Their friends laughed at his antics. They knew tomorrow would bring more problems for the new couple, but for now they were enjoying their time spent together. Hermione quickly ushered them to their next class, potions. She seemed too happy to be going to class that morning.
"There's something I have to tell you guys." Hermione said as she sat down. She looked nervous and a bit anxious at the same time.
"What is it?" Ron asked.
"Well, I've been seeing someone andwe finally think its time to tell everyone about us. Since you know, the uh, whole Voldemort thing and um, most of his Death Eaters have been caught and all, and uh, school is finishing in a few days," she said nervously.
"What does that have to do with you being with someone?" Harry asked.
At that moment, the doors to the Great Hall opened and Professor Snape walked in. Instead of walking straight towards the Head Table, he took a detour to the Gryffindor table. He stopped right next to Hermione and put his hand atop her head in a loving manner. Then he managed to surprise the rest of the school again as he swooped her into a passionate kiss. They broke apart and he looked around the table and saw all of the surprised faces. He smirked and spoke to Hermione.
"You haven't told them yet have you?"
"Well I was about to but I didn't get a chance to, you brute," she said mildly annoyed.
He maintained his smug smirk and walked away to the Head Table where he was sure to get many questions. The students sitting at Gryffindor table all looked at Hermione in wonder. After all, how could this Prefect, Head Girl and over all good girl be involved with a teacher?
"How the hell did that happen?" Ron asked incredibly.
"Well, it was a long process, but we've been together for almost a year now." She said.
"But, that would mean…" Harry said quickly counting the numbers up.
"Yes, the end of last year. But he didn't even kiss me till I was of age," she said proudly.
Ron gasped. "So that's what you were doing the night of your birthday!"
Hermione blushed beet red and coughed. "Well, yes if you really need to know."
"Ten galleons." Neville said triumphantly.
"WHAT?" Hermione shrieked. "You guys bet on me too? How the hell did you know?
"Well, yeah." Ron said as if it were the simplest thing in the world.
" I saw a look you guys shared during class once." Neville smiled happily as he took his money.
"Do you have bets on everyone?" Dean asked.
"Yep." Seamus said dejectedly giving his money he was so preciously saving for the end of school.
"What about yourselves?" Harry said with a smirk appearing on his face.
"Um, no." Neville said nervously.
Harry, Hermione and Dean brought their heads together in a whispering conference. Occasionally some one would hear a comment they said, like "Two maybe, but not three," or, "Definitely, that's what I say." The three of them seemed to be making their own plans.
"Well, we'll see you later," Harry said as he stood up and both Dean and Hermione followed. "We have a bet to finalize."
"What do you think they could be betting on?" Seamus said once the reached the boys dormitory. Both Harry and Dean were missing so they had a chance to talk freely.
"I don't know." Ron was starting to get worried by the actions of his friends.
"Well it's obviously us." Neville said.
"But what would they bet on?" Ron asked.
"What we bet on maybe?" Seamus looked at each of them nervously.
"You mean us getting together?" Neville asked shyly.
Silence reigned for a few long moments.
"Is there anyone you guys interested in?" Seamus asked both of them.
"Well yeah, I'm torn on who to tell." Ron said.
"Why?" Neville's eyes gleamed happily at this comment. He was obviously the quickest of the three; he had already placed the facts together and came up with a rather solid hunch.
"Well there are two and I just can't decide on who to tell."
"Well I'm on the same boat," Seamus said dejectedly.
"Me too," Neville smiled. He could definitely see where this was going and was quite happy with its destination. "Who are they?"
Ron became extremely nervous and Seamus lost a bit of color.
"No one of importance really." Ron said and Seamus nodded his head in agreement.
"How about we all say who they are at the same time, that way we all know at the same time?" Neville suggested.
"Um, ok," they both agreed.
"Okay, one, two, three."
"Both of you," Ron said.
"You two," Seamus said.
"The both of you," Neville said. He smiled happily. "Well that solves our problem. He stood up and walked to the closer of the two, Ron. He sat on his lap and proceeded to kiss him senseless.
"Whoa that's hot," Seamus said as he walked over to the kissing duo.
Neville broke away from Ron's lips and kissed Seamus. His hands were still around Ron and doing the most wonderful of things to him. He had managed to take Ron's shirt off all the while kissing Seamus.
"Where the hell did you learn all that?" Ron asked wondrously.
"I've been around, ask Harry." He stopped further talking by grabbing both of them and laying them down on Ron's bed. "Now I hope you two are ready to fuck, because I've been waiting for this for much too long."
Both boys smirked and shared a look. If Neville wanted a fuck, he would get it.
Harry and Dean decided to walk in at that moment, and saw both Ron and Seamus tearing Neville's clothes off, who was moaning quite loudly at what Seamus was doing to his neck. They quietly walked out side to the Common Room.
"Told you," Harry said smugly.
"You'll get your money later, but do you think Hermione is in her room?"
Dean snaked his hand around Harry's middle and pulled him closer. Harry could clearly feel his lover's hard length against his thighs. "I want to give them and us some privacy."
"C'mon, she'll be in Professor Snape's room."
