Title: Let Me Love You
Summary: Hermione Granger is tired of all the lonely nights. Cedric had been coming home less and less each week. When she's depressed, who will comfort her? Written for Tabby. Thank you so so much for the Birthday story. I love it!! It was also the official start of the 'Snape and every other character in the series omitting Draco' series.
Disclaimer: Nope I don't own it. Hey Tabby, do you think you would get it for me for what ever the next gift giving holiday is? Please? I'll love you forever and ever and ever and all the other evers in the world. Like, more evers than were in that old DA Note. Lol. That was like over three pages of just pure 'ever and ever'. LOl.
Hermione woke up early the next day. She found that Ginny was already awake.
"Thanks for what you did last night," Ginny told her quietly.
"Huh?" she asked confused.
"Charlie told me that you stood up for me against Cedric."
"You'd do the same thing for me. Besides, you don't really think I'm going to let people talk about you like that?" she asked.
Just then there was a knock on the door and Charlie entered the room.
"You guys ready?" he asked.
"Just let us get changed. We'll meet you downstairs in ten minutes. Do you think you can get us something to eat?" Ginny asked.
"Sure what do you guys want?" he asked looking towards Hermione.
"Toast and sausage?" Hermione asked.
"Sure, but I'm warning you now. If you're not down there in ten minutes I'm eating all the food," Charlie said going down the stairs.
Twenty minutes later the three of them were dressed, fed, and leaving a note for the rest of the Weasley family on the coffee table.
"Do we really have to apparate?" Hermione asked.
"You know very well that you can't flu out of the country. You'll just have to hold on really tight to Ginny," Charlie laughed.
Hermione nodded her head and wrapped her arms tightly around Ginny's middle.
"Merlin Mine, I can't breathe!" Ginny coughed.
Hermione slightly loosened her grip and Charlie took a hold of Ginny's hand and they all disappeared from the Burrow's living room.
"Oh Dear Merlin!" Hermione squealed.
"It's so beautiful," Ginny added as they stood in front of the ancient Japanese resort.
"So do you want to go check in or just stand outside gawking at the place?" Charlie asked, being the first one to come out of his mesmerized trance.
"Let's go in!" the girls squealed.
"You two go check in and I'll go check in with the Japanese Ministry," Charlie said.
"Okay see you later," Ginny said hugging him.
"If I'm not back in an hour you guys go ahead and look around the town," Charlie said moving on to hug Hermione.
"Okay," they agreed.
Charlie disappeared with a loud 'CRACK!' Just then a young Japanese witch came up to them.
"Do you have a reservation?" she asked.
"Yes. It should be Weasley with two adjoining rooms," Ginny replied in perfect Japanese.
Hermione stared at her in shock.
"What in the name of Nearly Headless Nick was that?" she asked.
"The perfect Japanese."
"Oh when I was eight Mum made me learn because we were all going to take a trip to Japan. It turned out Dad had a big project due for work, so we didn't end up getting to go. I loved the language and continued to study it. Charlie did too," she explained as the Japanese witch showed them the way to their room.
"Is this correct?" she asked.
"Hai. Arigato," Ginny replied. Yes. Thank you.
Ginny and Hermione walked in and found their bags in the corner of the room.
"Where are the beds?" Hermione asked.
"Hermione, have you ever studied Japanese culture?" Ginny asked.
"What? Oh yeah. Whoops. My brain stopped working for a second. They sleep on mats don't they?" she asked.
Ginny nodded, trying her hardest not to laugh with no prevail.
"Shut up. When I apparate, it messes with my head okay?" she asked.
"Um-hum. Sure, because I totally believe that," Ginny laughed.
"Shut up and help me unpack," Hermione told her.
The two girls unpacked their bags by hand and then looked at Charlie's.
"You unpack it. He's your brother," Hermione told her.
"No way. He warned me three years ago never to touch his things again, and in case you haven't noticed. Charlie's curses are worse than mine. He's the one that helped me perfect mine."
"But surely he'll be okay with this. I mean, it's not like you're taking anything, you're just putting his stuff up. You're helping him. "
"Nu-uh. You do it. He won't have any problem with you going through his things."
"I wouldn't be going through his things. I'd be putting them away," Hermione protested.
"Sure, call it whatever you want. But hurry up. I want to be able to leave as soon as he gets here. Actually we could leave right now if we wanted to. He said if he wasn't back in an hour we could go sightseeing without him. Apparently sometimes it takes a long time to go through all the paperwork. I don't get why witches and wizards have to register just to visit a place," Ginny groaned.
"It's so that they can trace you incase any magic happens around you. No one wants our world to be exposed," Hermione told her, with a wave of her wand that sent all of Charlie's clothes into the adjoining bedroom and in stacks on the shelves in the closet.
