I Love You, Hermione

Chapter 1: A Night of First's

By: EvilEmmaEvans

--------------------------------------

Harry sat there just staring at her. She was so beautiful, but she looked as if someone had just stunned her. Trying to figure what just happened; Hermione just stared into the fire.

"Hermione, I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to, it was an accident," Harry said reaching out to touch her hand; expecting her to pull it away.

"Harry, you thinking kissing me was an accident? I don't, I think it was the smartest thing you've ever done for me," Hermione said moving closer to Harry.

"Really, because if it isn't, then we could just forget it ever happened," Harry said, thinking that he had just ruined his friendship with the only person who had always been there for him, beside Ron anyway.

"Harry, I've had the biggest crush on you ever since 1st year," Hermione said, with eagerness filling her eyes like tears.

"Well, in that case, do you want to do it again?" Harry asked as he moved his hand from her hand to her face.

"What do you think I want to do?"Hermione said, while getting up to straddle Harry's lap.

"With the position you just put us in, it looks like you want to sleep with me," Harry said, holding Hermione's back so that she didn't fall.

"Wow Harry, sometimes I wonder why you ask me for help," Hermione said playfully, while standing up and pulling Harry up with her.

"You wait here, I'm going to go get the map and the cloak," Harry said, while looking into the pair of beautiful brown orbs.

"Okay, but be as quiet as you can," Hermione said to Harry, also staring into his green eyes, almost going weak in the knees.

With a quick, sweet, passionate kiss, Harry tiptoed upstairs to his dormitory. After getting what he needed, without waking Seamus, Neville or Ron up, he tiptoed back downstairs to Hermione.

"What took so long?" Hermione asked, while ducking under the Invisibility Cloak.

"I had to look for them, I couldn't remember if they were in my bag or in my trunk," Harry answered before switching his attention to the Marauder's Map and whispered 'I swear that I'm up to no good'.

"Is anyone in our path to the Room of Requirement?" Hermione asked scared.

"Not that I can see, but if someone does cross our path, we're under…" Harry started to say but was then frozen in time with Hermione pressed against him.

--------------------------------------

"Why did we break up again?" Dean asked amazed after Lavender froze time with a spell he didn't recognized.

"Because, our relationship was only made up after we stopped dating the Wesley's, there was no real connection between us to keep us together," Lavender said before going into her own dormitory to get her Invisibility Cloak.

"Are we going to tell anyone about this?" Dean asked as Lavender threw the cloak over him, "and when did you get this?" he asked indicating the cloak.

"I've had this cloak since I was 3 years old, and if we were, we wouldn't be writing it down, now would we?" Lavender snapped under her breath before muttering the counter-spell to start time again.

--------------------------------------

"Not that I can see, but if someone does cross our path, we're under the cloak, so no one will see us," Harry said reassuringly to Hermione, who was still pressed against him.

"I know you're anxious to sleep with me, but is being pressed against me necessary, or is it to build up your excitement?" Harry asked while moving his hand to in front of her, pulling her closer to him.

"Are you complaining about?" Hermione asked while pressing herself as close to Harry as she possible could, while Harry started a trail of kisses down the side of her neck.

"What do you think?" Harry asked echoing Hermione's question from earlier.

"I think we should get to the Room of Requirement before we completely break down and sleep here," Hermione said, suppressing a gasp as Harry's hand found her bra strap though her shirt.

"I agree," Harry said as he brought his hand back to the front of Hermione, while the other hand held up the cloak and Hermione held the map.

Once Harry and Hermione got to the Room of Requirement safely, only almost coming across Peeves, they let loose and weren't so tense. They started making-out with as little noise as possible. As they were snogging, Harry lifted Hermione's feet up off the ground, which she then wrapped around Harry's waist, and he carried her to the bed where, after sitting her down, started to take off her clothes. As Harry was taking off his own clothes, with some help from Hermione, Hermione started to get concerned and scared.

"Harry, should we be doing this?" Hermione asked just as Harry was getting onto the bed with her.

"What part, the sex part or the being together part?" Harry asked looking at her.

"Both, I mean I really like you and I want to be with you, but is what we're doing, the right thing? I mean think about it, you just broke up with Lavender and I just broke up with Ron, don't you think we're rushing things a bit?" Hermione asked pulling the covers up to cover herself.

"We might, but Hermione, come on, we won't know if this is right or not unless we try. So I won't force you to have sex, but can't we at least sleep together and see if 'us' is what is meant to be?" Harry asked while taking the covers form Hermione's hands.

"Harry, listen, I want you. I want to sleep with you. I want to have sex with you, but can't we take it slow? So that way we don't jeopardize our relationship?" Hermione asked while straddling Harry's lap again.

"Hermione, I would want to take it slow, if you would stop doing this," Harry said cautiously, while trying to restrain himself from pulling her down onto him and then rolling on top of her.

"Harry, just do what you want to do, if you want to pin me to the bed, just do it," Hermione said, as she went to get off of Harry and get off the bed.

"Hermione, I won't do anything to hurt you, but I can't stand it when you cry. You know how bad I am at comforting girls when they cry," Harry said stopping Hermione from leaving.

"Do you even have protection?" Hermione asked looking down Harry's body.

"No, but can't you just create one with a spell?" Harry asked, while also looking down Hermione's body, but stopping higher then Hermione had done with him.

"Probably, but I don't know how, Harry. And if we do go though with this, what will we do if I get pregnant? How will we take care of the baby?" Hermione asked eagerness filling her eyes like tears again.

"Hermione, don't you trust me?" Harry asked while taking Hermione into his arms and holding her.

"I do trust you, Harry, it's just that I've never done this before," Hermione said, her face going red, realizing that neither of them was wearing clothes and they were standing there holding each other.

"Neither have I Hermione, that's why I'm so eager to do this. So please, don't leave," Harry said almost pleading.

"I won't leave, but maybe we should get into the bed, this would be a very embarrassing position to be found in," Hermione said as she blushed even more and noticed that Harry was also blushing, realizing what she was talking about.

As Hermione started getting into the bed, Harry came up behind her and grabbed her by the waist and spun her around to face him. After having her facing him, Harry picked Hermione up bridal-style and laid her down on the bed and climbed on top of her.

"Are you sure that you're okay with this, right Hermione?" Harry asked not wanting to force anything on her.

"I'm sure Harry," Hermione said sitting up a little to pull Harry closer to her so that they could kiss while it started.

Not sure how much this would hurt her, Harry whispered an 'I'm sorry if I hurt you'. When Hermione just stared at him, Harry was concerned.

"Tell me if I hurt you and I'm sorry if I do hurt you," Harry said as he brushed away tears on her face with his thumb.

"I will, you don't have to worry about it," Hermione whispered.

As Harry entered, Hermione tensed up.

"I am so sorry, I didn't think it would put you in that much pain," Harry said as Hermione's eyes filled with real tears.

"It's not that it hurts, I just didn't know that the sensation of having you inside me would feel this good. So, the tears are tears of joy not pain," Hermione said as she relaxed again and opened up some more so that Harry had more room to enter.

--------------------------------------

As Harry and Hermione continued with what they were doing, time froze again.

"This is unbelievable, how can they be that eager to do that with each other, if neither of them were that eager to do it with you or Ron?" Dean asked, both amazed and shocked.

"Did it occur to you that there are usually two people in a relationship, not just one, and that both people need to want it?" Lavender asked, just a little annoyed with Dean.

"Are you saying that you and Harry didn't want to do it with each other and that neither did Ron and Hermione?" Dean asked looking at Lavender.

"No; what I'm saying is that Harry did want to do it with me, but I wasn't ready; I'm also saying that Hermione didn't want to do it with Ron, but Ron wanted to do it with Hermione," Lavender said, annoyance, hopefully, now showing in her voice.

"You're annoyed, aren't you?" Dean asked, as if just now realizing it.

"Yes, I'm annoyed, Dean," Lavender snapped at him.

After that little argument, time started again.

--------------------------------------

It was now morning, and both Harry and Hermione were glistening in sweat from the previous night's activities.

"That was really nice, wouldn't you agree, Harry?" Hermione said rolling on top of him.

"Yeah, it was really, really nice, it was a wonderful thing to get to do with you, though," Harry said, as he pulled Hermione into a passionate kiss.

"I'm really glad that break starts today and that Ron's going back to the Burrow with Ginny," Hermione said, smiling down at Harry.

"Are you saying that you want to do this again tonight?" Harry asked in a sarcastic teasing voice.

"Where ever did you get the thought, Harry James Potter?" Hermione asked in a mock motherly voice.

"Oh, I don't know, probably from you, Hermione Jean Granger," Harry said in a mock fatherly voice.

"Now, now, keep that nasty little mind of yours to yourself young man," Hermione said giggling.

"I have a nasty little mind, do I? What about yours? You need to take your own advice young lady," Harry said smiling.

As they got their clothes together, they both noticed a red spot on the sheets.

"Um, Hermione, was that there last night?" Harry asked indicating the spot.

"I don't think so, why?" Hermione asked.

"Well, then don't you think we should get rid of it?" Harry asked.

"Okay," Hermione said.

As Hermione cleaned the sheets, Harry stood there watching. The room was silent until there was a movement by the door. Looking horrorstruck, Hermione got off the bed, pulled her wand from her robes and started to walk cautiously toward the door with Harry right behind her.

"Is anyone there? And if there is remove yourself from the shadows," Hermione said stepping back so that she was close enough for Harry to grab her arm and pull her out of danger, if need be.

"Will you two calm down? We just got here, about…" Lavender said looking at her watch, "five minutes ago," she finished.

"We didn't realize that anyone was here," Dean started, "so, we're sorry if disrupted whatever it was that you were doing," Lavender finished for him.

"It's okay," Harry said as he heard Hermione sigh in relief behind him.

"We'll just leave," Lavender said.

"Wait, how much did you see?" Hermione asked, just a little scared.

"How much of what, did we see?" Dean asked, pretending to be confused.

"Okay, that means that you have no idea what we're talking about," Harry said, starting to turn around.

"We followed you last night, Harry," Lavender said to her ex-boyfriend.

"You, what?" Harry asked, turning around to glare at his ex-girlfriend.

"You heard me, Dean and I followed you last night," Lavender said, un-phased by Harry's anger, while Dean hid behind her and Hermione sighed from behind Harry.

"Why?" Harry asked still glaring at Lavender.

"Harry, Dean… and… I… are… the… gossip… king… and… queen… of… Gryffindor," Lavender said slowly.

"You won't tell anyone, especially Ron, will you?" Hermione asked looking terrified at Lavender.

"Don't worry, Hermione, Lavender wouldn't do that to us, right?" Harry asked looking from Hermione to Lavender.

"You're right I probably wouldn't, and it just so happens that we did put it into our records. No one will see them, except us that is," Lavender said reassuringly.

"Thank you, Lav," Harry and Hermione said together.

As Harry helped Hermione make the bed, Dean whispered something to Lavender.

"I know, you just said we won't tell anyone, but how exactly are they supposed to get out of here without anyone else seeing them?" Dean asked concerned.

"How have we been getting around?" Lavender asked not looking at him.

"You've been freezing time… oh," Dean said, as realization hit him.

After making the bed, Harry walked around to Hermione and kissed her passionately, pretending to forget about Lavender and Dean.

"Um, if two are done, we need to get you both out of here without being seen," Lavender said after clearing her throat.

"How are we supposed to do that?" Hermione asked as Harry started a trail of kisses down the side of her neck again.

"Oh, just an easy little time freezing spell," Lavender said with an evil grin on her face.

"Oh, but I don't know one," Hermione said before gasping as Harry started nibbling on her earlobe.

"That's okay, I do," Lavender said trying to ignore Harry's actions.

"Well then, go on, say the spell," Dean said eagerly.

"Oh, are you that pathetic, it's already in place," Lavender snapped at him.

"Thank you both," Hermione said.

"Let's go Hermione," Harry said, grabbing her hand and reaching down to pick up the cloak and the map and pulling Hermione out of the room.
