A/N: This is a collection of song fics because they've been coming one on top of the other so I figured I'd give it a try. They'll be for some characters you know and others you may not. I'm very random. This song is Valentine by Martina McBride.
If there were no words
No way to speak
I would still hear you
He wanted so much to apologize but he couldn't speak to her. She wasn't there so how could he? Her enchantments were so good that he knew it would be impossible to find his friends without their help. All he wanted to do was apologize for his ghastly behavior and for her…for both of them…to forgive him. He wanted to hear her voice again.
He sat up abruptly. Had he imagined it? Had he been so desperate to hear Hermione's voice that he had imagined her voice?
"Ron," it came again, very faint this time. It was coming from the Deluminator. He clicked it open. A single ball of light came out of it and floated toward him. He backed up. It followed. Having a vague idea what was going to happen he got dressed, filled his rucksack and let the ball of light float though his heart. A warm sensation filled him and he was whisked away, Hermione's face in his mind.
If there were no tears
No way to feel inside
I'd still feel for you
He had never felt love. At least, he had never recognized it. He didn't understand the devotion others felt for each other. He couldn't understand why a mother would take a curse for her son, why a man would beg for a woman's life to be spared, why a husband would fight a lost cause to give his wife time to escape. He just didn't understand it.
Most of all, he wasn't sure he wanted to understand. In truth, he was afraid. Afraid of what attachment would do to someone. Bellatrix would do absolutely anything for him. If he told he to leap off of cliff she would do it with a smile. He didn't understand why she loved him so, for that's what he'd heard the other Death Eaters whisper. Bellatrix Lestrange was in love with him. But why?
How does one fall in love? He'd heard many girls giggling in school about knights in shining armor and gentlemen. He had heard them whisper about how sweet and charming so and so was and how handsome and thoughtful such and such was. He found it all ridiculous this love business. Really, giving one's life up for someone else? Devoting yourself entirely to one other than oneself? It really was silly.
Yet he couldn't help feeling like he was missing out on something very important, something very...powerful. Love had prevented Harry Potter from dying, he knew that now. It was protecting him even now. If it could stop a Killing Curse, could love do more?
He didn't know and he never would because try as he might, as much as he even sometimes wished, he couldn't and wouldn't ever feel love. Yet, he knew that once upon a time, someone had loved him. It had terrified him so much that he had fled, gone to Albania to search out a lost treasure. In the process, he feared he lost another treasure.
And even if the sun refuse to shine
Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
Until the end of time
You're all i need
My love, my valentine
He felt like the luckiest man alive. Not only was he finally married to the love of his life, but didn't care about his "furry little problem" in the slightest. She would stay by his side no matter how many obstacles were thrown at them, no matter how many hurtles they'd have to leap.
She squeezed his hand under the table as she laughed and joked with her father. He squeezed back a grin on his face as he ate a piece of cake listening to their playful banter. He knew that if the sun didn't rise the next morning or if poetry finally went out style in the next week, nothing would change her love for him, nor his for her. Until time no longer ticked, they would be together and that made him smile more than anything as they squeezed each other's hands again.
All of my life
I have been waiting for
All you give to me
You've opened my eyes
And showed me how to love unselfishly
If it hadn't been for him she never would have learned the true meaning of love. Her parents had never said they loved her, and her sisters had but she felt that it was more from social necessity than any actual feelings. When he had told her all those years ago in the Astronomy Tower that he loved her she hadn't understood the impact that would have on her.
She knew that people in love held hands and sent each other mushy love notes shared stolen kisses between classes. She came to expect that. What she hadn't counted on was his insistence of protecting her. Never in a million years would she have believed anyone would jump in front of a Torture Curse for her, or give her a place to live when she no longer had one.
He did this and more, so much more that she couldn't imagine life without him. She thought about all this after he had come home one afternoon with a dozen roses and chocolates and large teddy bear that said I Love You on the belly. She loved the gifts but the greatest gift he could have given her was his selfless and undying love for her.
I've dreamed of this a thousand times before
In my dreams i couldnt love you more
I will give you my heart
Until the end of time
You're all i need
My love, my valentine
Never had she really believed her dreams would come true. Most of them were bizarre to begin with but the one that had always seemed out of reach was the one where she and Harry got married. Yet, here she was, walking down the aisle, in real life, toward Harry. He had a huge smile on his face and he seemed unable to keep still. She could have laughed aloud.
Despite his obvious eagerness to marry her she still couldn't believe this was actually happening. In a few short moments they would be pledging their lives and hearts to each other forever. He was all she needed and she was all he needed and she was ready to give love a go.
A/N: It's a short one and I'm not sure it came out quite right but…HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Or, if you are single like me, HAPPY SINGLE'S AWARENESS DAY!
