I don't own HP, but you all know that!
And oh, sweet perfection,
Won't you hear my one confession?
I've been lost, but dear, I'm found.
But Dear, I'm found.
Hermione took a deep breath. She opened her mouth to speak, but abruptly shut it again. "I can't do this," she said, panic creeping into her voice.
Ron gently grabbed her shoulders and looked her in the eye. "Hermione, I know you can do this."
She bit her lip, then shook her head. "No, I really can't." She shook her head again. "Let's just go home, I'm sorry for wasting your time."
Ron gave her a sympathetic look. "Hermione, you're the smartest person I know. You can do this."
Hermione still looked unsure of herself.
"I know you can do this," Ron said, pulling her in for a quick hug.
"What if I can't reverse the spell?"
Ron sighed. "Hermione, you know that was a possibility, we simply have to hope for the best. But I know you can do it."
"What if they hate me because of it? I mean, I wiped them of their memories! That's not exactly some small problem." Hermione began to pace.
Ron smiled, shaking his head. "Hermione, you can do this. I know you can do this."
Hermione smiled sadly. "I'm sorry I'm being so stressful." She crossed the room, wrapping her arms around Ron. "Thank you for coming with me."
Ron hugged her tightly. "I needed to get away from the Burrow."
Hermione nodded in understanding. She and Ron had left immediately after Fred's funeral. The whole family was a mess, and Ron had just figured it'd be best to get away. Hermione knew everyone dealt with their pain in a different way.
"I love you," he whispered into her neck.
Hermione's eyes widened. He had never said that before. "Say it again," she whispered into his chest.
He stroked her hair, kissing the top of her head. "I love you Hermione Granger."
She pulled back, tears in her eyes. "Oh Ron!" She cried, throwing her arms around him. "I love you too!"
The two of them kissed. It was sweet and full of love. Neither of them had ever been happier.
Ron broke the kiss, smiling at his girlfriend. "Now, let's go restore your parents' memory."
Hermione nodded, taking Ron's hand. She could do this.
Retrospectively, this would be the best day of her life.
