A Small Study Break

Hermione was sitting in the library, studying for her O.W.L.S. She had four different books spreading out before her, along with her notes, charts, and every other study tool she could possibly think of. She knew she was more than prepared, but felt so nervous about it all! What if she failed? What would happen to her then? She had only just discovered the wizarding world, she wasn't ready to leave it yet!

The chair next to her was pulled out. Looking up, she saw Ron taking a seat.

"I'm studying," she said sharply, not wanting any distractions.

"I know," he said. "I just brought you some food. You missed lunch again Hermione."

Her brown eyes flicked up. "Thank you Ron." She grabbed the roll from him, biting into it. He had also brought her some pumpkin juice.

Ron chuckled as he heard her stomach growl. "You know you'll be fine if you stop every once and awhile for food, or to go to the bathroom or something."

Hermione sighed, placing the half eaten roll on the table. "Yeah, I suppose you're right. I've just been so nervous Ron! These exams are so important, and I don't even know what I'm going to do!"

"Hermione," he said, placing his hand on her shoulder. "You'll be fine. In fact, you're probably the most prepared for O.W.L.S. out of all the fifth year students. You're the smartest girl I know, and you've got this."

She blushed. "Thank you Ron, I really appreciate it."

He grinned at her. "Well, I'm going to go play some Quidditch with Harry, but have fun studying." He gave her a quick hug. "And I better see you in the Great Hall for dinner tonight!"

Hermione sighed, but nodded. "I'll see you then Ron."

She watched as he exited the library. It was a sweet thought, but she needed to study. O.W.L.S. were coming, and she'd be ready.
