Just a Dare (a Fred/Hermione fanfic)

Hermione sat in front of a desk, working on her homework. The others were downstairs in the common room, chatting. Hermione sighed. Why does Potions homework have to be hard?

She heard George shout, "Just GO, Fred!" Hermione let out a groan. Then, she heard a knock on the door.

"Come in." Hermione said. Fred opened it and went inside.

"What do you want, Fred?" Hermione asked. Fred flashed her his sinister smile.

"Well, George dared me to… kiss you for at least 10 seconds or sing a Weird Sister's song." Fred said.

"Are you sure?"

"Hermione, it's just a dare."

She thought hard. "I don't want to kiss you, but then you sing like a dying Hippogriff."

Fred raised an eyebrow. "So, what's it gonna be?"

Hermione stood up and faced Fred. "Just for 10 seconds?"


Hermione took one step closer and kissed Fred lightly. Fred was counting in his head and then the kiss went deeper. He lost count.

They pulled apart and avoided each other's eyes. Hermione blushed furiously. A tinge of pink appeared on Fred's cheek.

"I'll go now." Fred said and closed the door.

Hermione's mind was racing. It was just a dare. Just a dare, Hermione.

After finishing her homework, she went to the common room and found George on the couch. "Hey, 'Mione." George smiled.

"George, Fred did the stupid dare so, let it go."

"Dare? What dare? All I did was tell Fred to go and borrow your Hogwarts, A History book."
