What do you do when the one you love the most is screaming, and you can't help? Whatever it was Ron needed to know, now!
He couldn't bear it, Hermione was screaming so much! So loud, he needed to help her! But he was locked down here. He had begged Bellatrix for a switch. . . What was that bitch doing to his Hermione?
But what could he do? He was locked up with an old wandmaker, Harry, and Loony Lovegood. With no excape. They had tried, and the wandmaker was no help. Ron closed his eyes. He could still hear Hermione screaming. . . He would make Bellatrix pay. He would make sure she payed for every bit of pain Hermione suffered. . . But first they had to get out!
Ron looked up. He would save her, and he would never let this happen to her again. He needed to save her. He still had so much to tell her, so much to show her.
And, he admitted, she could teach him so much, too.
When they were together she said his emotional range was that of a teaspoon. Ron didn't know how to talk to girls, he knew that and admitted it freely. He also knew that he didn't pay attention to Harry's problems like a best friend should, but thats beacuase he was always so focused on Hermione. She was beautiful, and smart, and could even tell a good joke, when her nose wasn't in a book.
She didn't know why he stopped talking to her when they fought. But if asked, Ron would admit that it was because he never wanted to upset Hermione, and he didn't like when she was right about the world he wanted to teach her about. Even with how much Hermione knew from books Ron knew that all he had to do was take her to the field, and he could still teach her. Just as she could teach him about the muggle world.
He longed for that. He longed for the time they spent together, no matter what they were taling about or doing. Ron wanted to be closer to Hermione, as a friend, as a boyfriend, and eventually he hoped they marry. He thought about, even dreamed about it.
The one thing he didn't do was talk to Hermione about it. He felt they belonged together, but he knew there could be nothing if she didn't want to be with him. He hoped she wanted to be with him as much as he did. And he knew why. There was no way he could deny it.
Ronald Weasley was in love.
The one and only Hermione Granger.
And he hoped that she loved him, too.
A/N. For everyone who read my Hermione story, I'm not a Ron/Hermione hater, I just don't always see it. I think they make a cute couple, and that Ron might've thought something like this during the torture part of the books with Bellatrix. In case nobody's notices, none of my stories are really conected to each other.
