Here is chapter 2! I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think!
P.S- I don't own Harry Potter…blah blahh blahh.
Hermione went to sleep that night truly terrified.
'What on earth was I thinking? Fred 'fricken' Weasley? Hermione, are you nuts? How on earth are you meant to stay with the king of pranks for a whole month?'
These thoughts swam around Hermione's head for most of that night. She barely slept a wink and when the morning had finally arrived, she was not very happy. She looked over to her alarm clock (she always brought a few muggle necessities with her) and found that it was only 7 o'clock. She had around 3 hours until she was scheduled to leave for her house but she was already nervous.
Her previous dread of staying with Fred had been replaced by nerves. It had finally dawned on Hermione that she wasn't scared of being pranked by Fred but she was scared of just being with him.
She had known Fred for nearly 5 years now and she had been practically living with him for the same amount of time. She was in the same house as him at school and she stayed at his home for all of the holidays. Yet in that time, Hermione could only think of one conversation that had occurred between just her and Fred. Of course she spoke to him a lot but it was always Fred and George or her and Ginny who she spoke to.
Fred was an amazing person; everyone knew that- even Hermione. He could make anyone laugh and he was always kind to others. Fred and George could make light in even the darkest of times and they always had smiles on their faces. 'And they aren't bad to look at as well.' Hermione actually froze when this thought popped into her head. 'When I have I ever looked at the twins like that? I mean they are good looking but… it's wrong. They are practically family…but still very fit family'.
Hermione shook her head again as she got out of her bed. 'Stop it Hermione. This month is going to be hard enough s it is, we don't need you drooling over him too.'
She walked over to her packed trunk and pulled out a pair of skinny-fit jeans and a purple jumper. She put her hair up into a high ponytail with a few wavy strands framing her face. She applied a tiny hint of mascara before heading down the stairs with her heavy trunk in hand.
"Hermione dear, what on earth are you doing? Are you a witch or not? Here let me."
Mrs. Weasley rushed towards the struggling Hermione. It seemed that she had completely underestimated the weight of her trunk. With a flick of her wand, Mrs. Weasley levitated the trunk and placed it in front of the fireplace.
"Thanks Mrs. Weasley." Hermione replied bashfully as she sat at the table.
"Merlin Mione! I know its depressing that you got given the less attractive twin for the month but there's no need to commit suicide by throwing yourself down the stairs." George laughed as he sat next to Hermione.
"I know, I was thinking about it but I couldn't do it. I mean if I committed suicide, who would be able to tell you that you are the more attractive twin, hey George?" Hermione chuckled lightly and sent a wink in Fred's direction.
George seemed to be pleasantly surprised by Hermione's banter and laughed heartily. Fred however scowled at his twin before turning to Hermione.
"You know Mione, I thought you were smart. Obviously you're losing your touch if you can't tell that I am the most attractive twin. Oh well, I have a whole month to prove that I am the more attractive and by the end of it you won't even be able to look at George out of disgust." Fred winked back at Hermione who was also laughing very loudly. George returned Fred's scowl with a small 'touché brother, touché'.
Breakfast went by quickly and soon 10 o'clock was approaching. Harry, Ron and Ginny had come down to say there goodbyes to Fred and Hermione before they left. Everyone was now standing around the fireplace about to see them off when George came forward to Fred.
"Fred brother don't leave me! I will perish without you're devilishly good looks and your charming personality! What am I going to do for a whole month without you? Oh wait, I know- how about I go snuggle up to Lucy Montague, the hot daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Montague? Yeah that sound like a plan." George winked at Fred who replied with loud laughter. They walked up to each other and gave each other a quick hug.
Fred knew that George was actually saying that he would miss him but he was doing it in his usual jokey fashion which Fred was glad for. He hated goodbyes, especially when he was leaving his twin who he had never left for more than week before.
Ginny hugged Hermione once more before Hermione insisted that they needed to go otherwise her family would be gone before they arrived. Fred grabbed a pinch of Floo powder and threw it into the fireplace. He and Hermione stood in the green flames with their luggage when Hermione shouted "14 Carlen Road."
The familiar pull behind her navel made Hermione fell sick. There bodies twisted and where pulled when suddenly it stopped. Hermione stepped out of the fireplace first and into the familiar living room. Fred followed with the luggage and stood next to Hermione whilst taking in the room.
The walls were a pale blue and a dark blue sofa was facing the fireplace they had just stepped away from. On the left hand side of the room a giant window looked out to the street. A window seat was also there and it was covered in lovely looking pillows. Fred turned and looked at the other side of the room and what he saw made him smile. The entire wall was a book case that was crammed with hundreds of thick books.
'Typical Hermione.' Fred thought.
Hermione walked out of the door and into was Fred guessed was her kitchen as he didn't follow, not wanting to intrude. Hermione came back with a smile on her face and a note in her hand. She walked back over to Fred and read the note aloud.
Dear Mione and Fred,
We are terribly sorry that we couldn't stay until you arrived but we had to leave for work. We hope you settle back in Hermione and welcome to our home Fred.
Lots of love mum and dad.
P.S- we have a dentistry convention tonight so we won't be back until midnight, have fun!
Hermione smiled at Fred and went over to grab her trunk.
"You have a lovely house Hermione. Its very you." Fred tilted his head towards the bookcase and Hermione giggled.
"Why thankyou. I'm not really here much but when I am, I love it. Oh and seeing as mum and dad aren't going to be here all day I was thinking I could start to teach you about the muggle stuff in the house then tomorrow we could go out somewhere. What do you think?"
"Yeah that sounds great. Listen Mione, I'm really grateful that you're letting me stay with you. Thankyou, I know it probably wasn't how you were planning on spending the holidays but I promise I will make it fun." Fred smiled kindly at her and a small blush rose up her cheeks.
'She looks so cute when she blushes. I must make her do that more often.' Fred thought. He looked at Hermione one more time before levitating both there trunks with his wand.
"Umm Hermione. I don't really know where I'm meant to be levitating these trunks, so how about that grand tour of Granger Manor?" Fred joked happily.
Hermione snapped out of her embarrassed smile and hurried up the stairs in front of Fred. She turned around and looked at him with the trunks following silently behind his back. He smirked and Hermione realized that she hadn't answered his question. Blushing again for the 2nd time in minutes, Hermione replied,
"Umm sure. Its not huge like the burrow but I hope you like it."
"Hermione, of course I will like it. It is your house after all."
Hermione turned around and ran up the stairs, her blush still bright red on her cheeks. 'Damn me and my girly reactions' she thought as she reached the landing.
