A/N: I don't own Harry Potter.

Hello! I'm back with another drabble! I seriously can't get enough of those, huh? I can't help it, when you get a drabble idea, you just have to write it…especially since they're so short. Hehe. Ah, well, I'll stop babbling now. Enjoy!

Love Potion

"Ron! This is definitely not the way to do it!" Hermione said, screwing up her nose as she glanced down at the sickly green potion boiling in the cauldron.

Ron rubbed the back of his neck. "But…I followed the instructions! I didn't miss anything!" he protested. "Why did it come out green instead of bright pink?"

"I have no idea…just like I have no idea why you want to make a Love Potion," she muttered, shaking her head. "Honestly, the things you…"

But her words were cut off as Ron cupped her face between his hands and kissed her. Her eyes widened in surprise, but she didn't pull away. Instead, she found herself returning the kiss. After a few moments, they broke apart.

Ron smiled down at her. "If this mess won't work…" he said, and pointed at the potion. "…then will that do?"

Hermione was silent for a second, then she found herself smiling back. Then she whacked him around the head. "You prat! You were going to use a Love Potion on me?" she demanded.

"Ow! Sorry!" he apologized, holding his hands up in a surrender gesture. "I'm so sorry!"

"Completely insensitive…" she muttered. Then she looked up and locked him in a questioning gaze. "Why, though? Why would you want to use a Love Potion on me?"

Ron chuckled. "Isn't it obvious?" he said, and started to pull her towards him again. "I love you, Hermione…and I thought, by getting you to have some of that potion, I'd hear you say the same thing to me…"

Hermione was caught speechless. Then she lifted up her hands and clasped them behind Ron's neck. "You know, Ron…I really don't think you need a Love Potion for me to say it," she said softly.

"I don't?" he said, surprised.

"No," she replied, shaking her head. "I…love you, too."


A/N: Okay, so what do you think? So that wasn't exactly a 100 words, but I couldn't deal with the word limit; I've always hated word limits. But it was so sweet, don't you think? Of course, the idea of Ron trying to use Love Potion with Hermione is a bit creepy, but then again…ah, well, please review, okay?
