AN: I guys! My exams last week did not kill me, so to celebrate here is another chapter! Thanks again for all the kind words, reviews and alerts, they truly mean a lot. Hope you like it...
The Duo Within the Trio
"It has always been three. The Golden Trio. Harry, Ron and Hermione. Three. It was an unspoken agreement. Where one went the other two usually followed. That agreement stood many, many life threatening situations. Yet if you paid attention you would've noticed the duo between the trio. And I'm not talking about Mr. Weasley and Mr. Potter." Hermione looked at her best friends with what seemed as a permanent smile, as laughter filled the air.
"It's not that they avoided other people, because they did not, it was more of a sense of respect for each other... I remember back to the year before the war. That had been an odd year for the magical duo.
"As head of a house overtime you grow fond of your kids, all of them, but Miss Granger, now Weasley, had this peculiar thing that got me since their first class: she was and still is eager to learn... everything. So I admit to have always paid certain attention to the young lady sitting right there," Mcgonagall looked at her former student "You look gorgeous."
Thank you Hermione mouthed.
"So back to the story, I remember that these two have always had some kind of tension between them. And if you missed the lingering looks that gave each other you might even wonder how they could stand one another. But I saw the glances, the longing looks, the ones that said everything they were too stubborn to voice, sadly they missed them.
"Then the year before the war the trio seemed to be no more. They were acting very different towards one another. There was a particular harshness when they spoke to each other. A mean glance and pathetic attempt to hide disappointment. But if you paid attention to the five seconds after the conversation you'd see the look if fear, sadness, regret and longing still on their faces, on both of them.
"Being a teacher you are supposed to be impartial, to not show preference between your kids and most importantly not to intrude in petty arguments between them. I had never had problems with that, then the trio came to school and I was always preoccupied. Then this magnificent duo pretended so many things. Never in my life have I felt more like breaking that rule.
"Never. And I mean never. Have I wanted to grab to students by their ears and make them snog, make them share those magnificent glances that said so much with each other. Make them express their true feelings.
"So like Mr. Potter so eloquently said It's about damn time. So ladies and gentlemen I would like to make this toast out to Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, may their marriage last as long as the Heavens allow."
AN 2: I think this is my first time writing Mcgonagall so I hope I didn't completely butcher it. Anyway please leave your thought in a review. Thanks for reading!
