Can I Have This Dance

Harry looked at Ron then left to catch up with Hermione. When he did she was in tears. Harry hugged her.

"Don't pay any attention to Ron. He's just upset that we didn't tell him," Harry told her.

She just nodded. Harry wiped away her tears and kissed her on top of her head.

"Could he walk outside for a bit?" Hermione asked once her tears stopped.

"Sure if that's what you want," Harry replied.

She nodded. Harry led her towards the garden. After a while Hermione started to shiver. Harry held her close to him. She looked up and smiled at him. It began snowing. Harry smiled and chuckled to himself.

"What's so funny?"

"Oh just a memory."

"What memory?"

"When we danced in the snow."

"You remember that?"

"Of course I do. It's a nice memory."

"It was nice with the snow and the scenery."

"And no Ron to interupt anything, or ruin it."

"Yeah that to."

"Care to dance?"


"Can I have this dance?"

Hermione smiled at him,"You may."

The music from the Great Hall could be heard from the garden. They danced to it. Hermione rested her head on Harry's chest. The song ended and another played. Harry kissed the top of Hermione's head. She smiled and turned her head to look at him. Harry looked into her eyes. He kissed her. The kiss seemed to last forever. When they broke apart they were both smiling.

"You know if you keep kissing me like that and someone sees they might think we're a couple," Hermione said smiling.

"Wait we aren't?" Harry asked smiling as well.

"No Harry we're not. You haven't asked me."

"Well then Hermione Granger will you be my girlfriend?"

"Anwser me one question then I'll anwser yours."


"Why me? You could have any girl you want and you choose me."

"I love you. Your honesty, sense of humor, loyalty, and the fact that you know me for me. Any other girl would just want to go out with the famous Harry Potter. Not the real me. No one has any control over who they love. But I know this: I've been in love with you since our first year. Nothing is going to change that."

"Why didn't you say something sooner?"

"I didn't say anything for fear of losing your friendship. I can't lose you."

"I can't lose you either. I've been in love with you since the day I met you."

They both laughed.

"Some Gryffindor courage we have. We can't even tell each other how we feel."

"Yeah maybe we should have been placed into Hufflepuff. We're better friends than brave at the moment."
"I don't know I think you would have been in Ravenclaw if anything else."

"The sorting hat thought of placing me there. But it choose Gryffindor."

"I'm glad it did."
"Me to."

"You know you haven't anwsered my question yet Ms. Granger."

"The anwser is yes," She replied then kissed him.

The kiss seemed to last forever. Niether of them wanted it to stop. But due to the lack of air they had to. They finally noticed how cold it was outside, so they headed up to the Common Room. It was late the ball was getting over. Most of the students went straight to bed. Harry and Hermione settled on the couch near the fire. After a few hours of kissing and talking they headed to bed.

"Than you for a wonderful evening Harry," Hermione said kissing him goodnight.

"You're welcome. And thank you," He replied returning the kiss.

They both went to bed with smiles on their faces.
