A/N: I am so happy because I got so many reviews between one in the morning and ten a.m. Now since you guys review, I will give you what you have waited for.
Ron stood from his chair and coughed loudly to get the attention of the Great Hall as soon as Hermione, Lavender, and Ginny walked through the doors. Half of the room hated him and the other half was scared of him.
"Everyone, I have an announcement to make," groans and yells of protest were heard throughout the room.
"Everyone, just please settle down and let him speak," Dumbledore said in a somber tone.
"Now, I have an announcement to make. Hermione Granger and I," he looked at Hermione with a psychotic grin on his face "are getting married!"
The room was silent and Hermione was frozen. The Slytherins hateful masks had slipped and on their faces was pure shock. The Ravenclaws were speechless for once and most of the Hufflepuff's mouths were hanging open with food in them - all except one, Luna Lovegood. She was staring at Hermione with a thoughtful look in her eyes. The Gryffindors were furious. Harry was standing, pointing his wand at Ron. Dumbledore was the first to speak.
"Harry, might I ask that you sit and put your wand away?"
"Sir, I don't want him coming near her."
"I second that vote," Narcissa said as she walked in the doors.
The Gryffindor table stood up yelling that they agree.
"Settle down, please. Mr. Weasley, would you please provide some form of explanation?"
"Hermione said she'd think about it, and obviously, she wants to marry me," Ron said with a satisfied smirk.
"Are you out of your mind? Crazy? Insane? Do you need to go to St. Mungo's? Obviously, you do. When you hit me, I decided I did not want to marry you. I want a real man, not someone who brings harm to others as their own personal form of pleasure," Hermione half-yelled.
"What are you talking about 'Mione? We belong together. Do you not see? These people just do not understand us. If you come back to me Hermione, I promise you, I will never lay a hand on you again. Please 'Mione," Ron pleaded with the most pitiful look on his face, but a gleam in his eye that Lucius and Severus recognized instantly.
By that time, most students in the Great Hall had gone outside and to their common rooms, and only few remained. Gryffindors, Slytherins, and the professors.
"Mr. Weasley, I think Miss Granger wants you to leave her alone…permanently," Lucius said as he stepped in front of the two. Narcissa took Hermione's arm and tried to get her to follow her out the door, but Hermione would not budge.
Ginny whispered in Hermione's ear, "Hermione, I think we should go before things get messy. Please, let's just go."
"Just a minute Ginny. You go on and I'll meet you in the Gryffindor common room," Hermione said in a dream-like state.
Narcissa realized what was happening, went to Dumbledore, and whispered in his ear what she suspected.
"Yes, It does seem like it," Dumbledore mumbled as he listened. He walked over to Ron and gripped his shoulder…hard. So hard that Ron turned around and looked at the headmaster with a shocked look on his face.
"Try anything like that again Mister Weasley and I'll have you sent to Azkaban. You should be in there now…How did you manage to get out?"
"My mum pulled some strings. She knew the minister. Why do you care? It's not like you offered to help," Ron said with a disgusted look on his face.
"They came to me first and there was nothing I could do. You know, now that you mention it, I do remember Marcus and Molly were quite close throughout school…"
I have to look into that, Dumbledore thought as he stored it in the back of his head for future reference.
"Narcissa, Lucius, would you two mind escorting Miss Granger back to her quarters? I have to make an announcement that all classes are canceled today," Dumbledore said as he took a lemon drop out of his pocket and stuck it in his mouth. "Lemon drop?" he asked them.
"No thank you," Narcissa said with a smile. "We wouldn't mind at all Albus." Lucius walked over to his wife and Hermione, and ushered them to the doors.
"Mister Weasley, I need to call a meeting with your parents and you, please, come to my office," Dumbledore said as he motioned for Severus to come over to where they stood.
"Severus please help me escort Mister Weasley to my office," Dumbledore said with a warning look in his eye.
"Of course Albus," the dark haired man said while he pulled out his wand.
"What's that for?" Ron asked.
"Just in case," Severus answered with a smirk.
"Off we go," said Dumbledore, trying to break the tension between the Raven-haired man and the Red headed boy.
"Minerva, will you please contact Arthur and Molly?" Dumbledore asked as they were leaving the Great Hall.
"Of course Albus, I will right now," McGonagall said with a look over her shoulder at Ron, and walked off towards her office.
"Molly, the reason I did not help you was because he is a danger to our students here. He is violent," Dumbledore was trying to explain, but the Weasleys kept interrupting.
"My Ronald is not violent. These people are making up accusations because they are jealous of Ron. He has so much potential and all you're doing is trying to smash it all," Molly argued.
"There were bruises and another woman came forth and told me her story of what Ronald done to her. He does indeed have potential, but we cannot let him stay here and proceed to learn here if he is a threat to the student body. I'm sorry, but we have to expel him," Dumbledore said as a closing argument. He would not get pushed around by them giving him a guilt trip.
"Fine then. We will speak to Marcus and Ron will be back in no time," Molly said as she walked out of the room - Ron in her arm and Authur behind her.
"But Marcus-" Molly started. Authur and Ron were waiting outside while she was trying to strike a deal with the minister.
"Molly I am sorry, but I do not control Hogwarts. If Dumbledore has said no and expelled him, then there is nothing more I can do," Marcus said while looking through the huge stack of papers he had for a certain document.
"But what about our deal last time?"
"Molly, you know I will always love you, but what I could have gotten fired for what I did last time. Do you know how many strings I had to pull and how many lies I told to get Ron freed? Sex for freedom is not smiled upon anywhere Molly," Marcus said, sighing in defeat of not being able to find the document.
"But it will not be sex for freedom. I will give you what you've always wanted in return for letting my son back into Hogwarts," Molly said, her voice going up an octave.
"Listen Molly, I am terribly sorry, but I cannot and will not exchange anything for sex. I have my morals, and although I let them slip so I could finally get what I've tried to obtain since our Hogwarts years, I will keep them not and I will not be pushed around just for sex," Marcus spit out the word sex like it was a dirty word not to be said out loud.
"You are just like every other man Marcus. I thought I could trust you, I thought I knew you, but apparently, I stand corrected. All you wanted was sex and when you got what you wanted you threw my out like a bag of rubbish. Well, I have news for you, I will not be treated like some…wench," Molly said with a huff while pointing her finger at his chest.
At that moment Authur came in. "What's going on here? Is everything okay?" he asked.
"Yes, everything is fine Authur, we're leaving now. Let's go see if we can enroll Ronald in Durmstrang," Molly said as she walked off with a stunned Authur looking back at her.
"Molly, wait, you don't want to do that. There are some dark things going on at that school and Ron isn't in much trouble right now," Marcus tried to say as Ron peered around the corner at his mom.
Molly started to walk off when Ronald said, "But what about Hermione?"
Before Molly could say anything an owl flew through Marcus' window. "What's that?" Molly said.
"It's the restraining order papers Dumbledore has just arranged for Miss Granger. It even has both their signatures. Lucius and Narcissa were the witnesses," Marcus said while looking for his quill to sign them so they would become official.
"Looking for this Marcus?" Molly said while holding up the quill.
"Yes, Molly would you please give it to me so I can sign these papers?"
"On one condition. You have to answer my question," Molly said with a wicked gleam in her eye.
"Fine, fine, will you just give me the quill please?"
Molly handed him the quill and asked, "Is it true that a pureblood can arrange a marriage with a muggleborn without anyone's true consent?"
Marcus stood there with his mouth wide open.
"Um..Well, yes, but, um, it's frowned upon and no one has done it since the olden days because it practically takes away the free will of the muggleborn. Molly, please, don't even thing about this," Marcus said. He could care less about signing right now. His main priority was making sure Molly didn't do anything stupid.
"Well, that's all I wanted to know. Can you please tell me which way we have to go to arrange a marriage?"
"No Molly, I cannot do that."
"Fine, Arthur works here, he'll show me," Molly said as she drug Arthur and Ron beside her.
At that instant, Marcus signed the papers and started writing a letter to Dumbledore.
A/N: Okay, so do you like it? Hopefully I'll have more chapters up since its summer (finally). Review because it makes me happy and makes me want to write more :]
