That Secret Smile

By CodeRomance

Gryffindor Common Room: She smiled at him from the other side of the room. She always smiled at him. It wasn't a normal smile; it was a secret smile she saved just for him. He knew this and clandestinely he was glad. She never smiled like that to anyone, only him. He loved it; he reveled in it. That secret smile that no one else had the pleasure of knowing. He loved it; he loved her. Yes, he loved her. Everything she is and everything she was, he loves. He loves her flaming red hair, her chocolate brown eyes, and her soft feminine hands. Yes, he loved her hands, just as he loved her. He knew it, and yet he found it nearly impossible to tell her how he felt. He was afraid. Yes he was afraid of many things. He was afraid of rejection. He was afraid she would look at him and laugh. But most of all he was afraid of never feeling, again, the way he felt when she was near. What he didn't know was she felt the same.

"Harry!" Ron yelled for the third time. "Snap out of it! What could you possibly be thinking about that is more important than what I'm talking to you about?"

"Look, Ron, I just don't care why you and Lavender broke up. I have more pressing matters to think about right now!" Harry muttered showing that he had been paying attention.

"I wasn't talking about that! Besides what 'more pressing matters?' What is more important than what I have to say?

"Hermione? What was Ron talking about then?" Harry asked ignoring Ron's question.

"He was talking about, him, Lavender and the break up!" Hermione stated matter of factly. Harry smirked at Ron.

"Uh!" Ron thru up his arms and stalked off. Harry looked back across the room at her. She smiled at him again. He smiled back. Hermione got up to talk to her.

Ginny knew she smiled at him differently. But she couldn't help it. Every time she saw him, she smiled that secret smile. She loved to smile at him. She loved that all she had to do was smile at him and he would look at her and listen. She loved it when she smiled at him and he would smile back with his own secret smile he saved just for her. But most of all she loved him. Only him. She loved everything about him, his unruly hair, his emerald green eyes, and his quidditch hands. Oh, how she loved his hands. What she wouldn't give to have them run down her body and touch her in places no one, not even herself, had touched. These were impure thoughts, her mother would say, but she didn't care, she loved him. Her only problem, the one she's had for years, was how to tell. How do you tell your brother's best friend you love him? That was the trick, how, how, how, how? If only she knew whether he loved her too. It only she knew.

"Ginny!" Hermione yelled for the third time. Ginny snapped out of her trance. "What is going on today? First Harry now you!"

"What do you mean?" asked Ginny curiously.

"You! Harry! Can't even answer when your name's called." Hermione mumbled under her breath, but Ginny heard.

She laughed, "Come on Hermione. What do you need to talk about?"

Hermione leaned closer, "Actually, I need to talk to you about Ron," she whispered.

"Really?" Ginny laughed softly, "Well, lets go down to the lake. There's something I want to talk to you about as well."

"Alright," Hermione jumped up and headed for the door. Ginny got to follow but looked back at Harry. She smiled at him. He saw, and smiled back, then he went back to finishing his Potions essay. Ginny walked out to a waiting Hermione. They walked down to the lake in silence.

"So what did you want to talk about?" Hermione asked sitting down on a rock.

"Oh no! You called this meeting! So what's up with Ron?" Ginny giggled because she had a slight feeling she knew what the problem was. And she was right.

"Oooh, Ron is such a git!" Hermione uttered. "He doesn't know anything, especially when a girl likes him!" Hermione jumped up and waved her arms around. "I mean the signs are there, aren't they? I haven't not been giving him signs, have I?"

"No I agree, you are definitely giving him signs. Ron is just a mindless, useless prat when it comes to girls." Ginny smiled at the thought. "Well, maybe you should try a different approach."

"What do you mean?" Hermione asked cautiously. Hermione was a smart girl but when it came to guys she didn't have a clue.

"Oh come on Hermione, tell him how you feel!" Ginny exclaimed.

"Pullez! Tell him how I feel! Tell him that I love him and I want to be with him forever. That I want to marry and have kids with him! Ya well I can't just tell him! You know how he'll take it. He'll freak." Hermione practically yelled.

"That's not necessarily true, 'Mione. It depends on who the guy is." Ron said as he came down from the castle. "So who's the guy that you love. He's really lucky whoever he is."

He looked sad and grave. "You should tell him you love him."

Hermione whipped around, "Ronald Weasley how much did you hear?" she yelled.

"Just the last part about love, being with forever, marrying, children." Ron murmured sadly. Looks like I lost her, thought Ron. "So who's the guy? Harry? Neville? Just tell me it's not someone like Malfoy."

"No! You stupid git, it's YOU!" Hermione cried and she stomped away crying.

"Me?" he asked incredulously. He looked at Ginny, "Me?" he whispered. "She loves me?"

"Yes and you have to be a prick about everything!" yelled Ginny as she stomped off after Hermione.

"Brilliant! I've really blown it now, haven't I?" Ron said to himself. He sat down on the rock Hermione had just left. "Oh 'Mione, what have I done now?" Ron put his head in his hands. Someone cleared his or her throat.

"May I sit?" Harry asked. Ron looked up.

"Ya," he muttered.

Girls Dormitory:

"Hermione? Hermione? It'll be alright." Ginny smoothed a hand over Hermione's hair.

"Will it, Ginny! Ron doesn't love me, he doesn't even like me that way!" she sobbed.

"Oh Hermione! You don't know that! You didn't see the look on his face after you ran off. He looked really upset!" Ginny argued.

"I think he was upset because of what I said, not because he loved me too!" Hermione looked at her. Ginny wrapped her into a hug. "So what was it you wanted to talk to me about?" she wiped the tears away, trying to be strong.

"Oh nothing right now. What we need is a soppy movie, some hot coco, popcorn, tissues and some girl time." Ginny exclaimed.

"That sounds niceGinny, but not until you tell me what you wanted to tell me. Besides where are we going to get a movie? We don't have a TV because we don't live in the muggle world and we're at Hogwarts."

"Well, huh, well alright so that's not a good idea," Ginny muttered.

"Come on Gin, tell me what's up?" Hermione pleaded.

"Alright, alright, I'll tell you since I know you'll bug me about it until I do!" Ginny sighed. "It's the same problem you have."

"What do you mean-oh you mean, with me loving Ron and…" Hermione choked up. She breathed in and out so she wouldn't get upset. " So, who's the lucky guy?' she looked at Ginny's face. "Oh don't tell me it's still Harry!"

"What do you mean 'still Harry?' It's always been Harry. I've loved him forever. Way longer then you've loved Ron." Ginny looked longingly out the window. Ron and Harry were sitting by the lake where she and Hermione had been. They appeared to be talking.

"Tell him how you feel Ginny! Tell him you love him!" Hermione said throwing Ginny's words back in her face.

"Ya well it didn't work too well for you, so what makes you think it will work for me? But I suppose I have to don't I?" she continued to look at Harry just as they got up and headed for the castle.

"Yes you do." Hermione murmured.
