Footsteps. That's what registered in my mind; I ignored it and looked back out the astronomy tower window. The door opened and I knew who it was without looking. I sighed and continued staring out the window, why look? He'd only give me a pleading face that I have to give into.

"I don't want you to go Ron…" I stated, a single tear falling down my face

"I don't want to go. But I have to love…" He replied quietly

"You don't have to!" I shouted, whipping around to face him "This is Harry's fight! It always has been and it always will be!"

"Hermione…" Ron pleaded

"Why aren't you letting me go?" I asked angrily, Ron sighed

"Because I love you…and it's dangerous." He stated determinedly,

"That's exactly why I don't want you to go."

"But I'm a man…I can take care of myself." He said, I glared

"And I can't?" I asked furiously, Ron paled slightly

"No…Herms…that's not what I meant and you know it." He said, I sat on the windowsill with a sigh

"I know." Ron stepped forward and put a hand on my shoulder

"It'll be ok love, Harry needs all the help he can get…I need to be there…" He said quietly, I nodded, not exactly trusting myself with words. Ron kneeled in front of me "Please don't worry…"

"How can I not Ronald? I love you…more than life itself…and here you are, waltzing off with our best friend to a massacre. Where you could be killed Ronald, how can I not worry? Please tell me, because I'd love to know." I cried, he frowned and looked at the floor

"Love…I can't promise anything…but if I die…it'll be for a good cause." He said taking my hand "But know…anywhere I am…I'd rather be…where you are." Tears fell freely from my eyes. When Ron finally looked up, I saw he had tears of his own. He reached up and gently brushed my tears away.

"Don't cry…my love…" He pleaded, I sighed and did my best to smile, he stood and gave me a quick kiss "I'll miss you every minute I'm gone."

And then…just like that…he was gone…with the sound of his fading footsteps…I knew in my heart…that he'd be missing me for an eternity…
