All's Fair In love and War
Chapter 1: The Bet
Fred went down the black lake to see his twin sunbathing. Well all those girls hanging around were blocking the sun and gazing at his muscles "So Georgie," Fred clapped his hands together. "You flirting without me? Is this what you've been up to yeah?" George eyed his twin suspiciously and shooed the girls away.
"Freddie, thought I would get the good ones first and leave you with the messed up, broken ones." George flopped back in the grass and chuckled.
"Sure, but all the good ones are my leftovers anyways." Fred said as he sat down on the grass and punched George in the stomach.
"Ow Fred. No harm, no foul. How many one-nighters have you had my friend?" George made a gaging noise.
"Far too many to remember." Fred looked out onto the Black Lake to create a dramatic look then punched his twin again.
"What's up with the punching?" George looked around the lake and saw one Hermione Granger under a tree and her nose in a book again. Fred would never go for it but "I bet you can't crack Granger. I hear she's still a virgin." George knew his twin would never be able to turn down a good dare. Fred sat up from his position to get a better look at the girl.
"Granger? You know little Ronnikins will kill me if I talk to her right? And besides she's such a nerd. I don't want any loser germs on me. I might lose my rep."
"On the contrary my dear brother. You do it, or I'll tell mom you've been shagging people before you're even married. So you doing it or not? Grow a pair. It's just Granger, she'll fall in love with anyone and everyone."
Fred thought about it. What do I have to lose? "What are the terms?" Fred couldn't believe he was doing this. George is only doing this because he knows I secretly have a crush on her.
"Seduce her, shag her and no other engagements afterwards got it? If you don't do it by Christmas break, I will tell mom." George smiled mischievously.
"One month! You expect me to have Granger in one month?" Fred was biting off more than he could chew.
"I'm sure Granger won't be too hard to get into bed. She is a little virgin after all."
"We'll have to see I guess." Fred didn't know what to make of this bet. It was either he would shag the girl and break her heart or his reputation being ruined and his mom hating him forever…
Fred and George were walking back to the common room, when they saw Hermione carrying a heavy load of books up the stairs. "The bet starts now Fred." George winked at the now annoyed Fred and went to talk to a hot-looking Ravenclaw. I hate you George.
Here goes nothing. "Um Granger, do you uh need any um help?" Fred forced a shy smile. Hermione nodded and gave half of her books to Fred.
"What happened to you Fred? Is something wrong?" Hermione stared up at him with her dark brown eyes. Fred felt the hairs on the back of his neck stand.
"Huh? What do you mean?" Fred looked away. I can't do this, I can't do this.
" Why are you being so nice? George put you up to this?" Damn she is smart. Act cool.
"Nah, just wanted to be a helpful guy." Fred smiled his most dazzling smile.
"Oh okay." Hermione couldn't help but smile as well. "We're here." Already, I'm not getting anywhere.
Just as Hermione was about to enter the class, "Hogsmeade, this weekend." He said abruptly causing Hermione to turn around. Smooth Fred, you'll definitely shag her for sure.
"Sorry Fred didn't quite catch that." Hermione raised one eyebrow.
"Um," Fred ran his fingers through his hair. "Would you like to um go to Hogsmeade with me this weekend?" Fred kicked himself inside.
"What, like on a date?" Hermione moved closer.
"Um It doesn't have to be a date you know, if you don't want it to be." Fred looked down to his feet.
Hermione smiled. "I would love that Fred. I'll see you on Saturday." Then she kissed him on the cheek…
