it was just a m o m e n t, really,
but at the burrow,
your fourth year,
before harry arrives
you're in the burrow
ron is playing chess
and you're curled up in an armchair
lost in a book
missing your mum
but happy, overall
and then the flames blaze emerald green
and out of the fire steps
oh my goodness who is that?
he has this rugged look about him
with a grin like fire
and eyes that s p a r k l e
and his hair, it's a softer color than ron's
it sticks out
for that one moment
you f a l l in l o v e with that boy
stepping out of the fire
just for one moment
and you quickly face your book
while ginny runs over ("Charlie! Charlie!")
and he waltzes over to you
"you're not a weasley"
(and okay, maybe you blush a little)
"I'm Hermione. Ron's friend."
"Lovely to meet you, Miss Hermione."
and after that day
after that moment
you stop c-a-r-i-n-g about charlie weasley
so you never really loved him, not really..
(but years later
when you're married to ron
and you're h a p p y..
you remember that charlie weasley,
and you think,
"i wonder what could have been...)
