"Her- Hermione? Can we talk please?"

"Sure Luna. What's the matter?"

"Well, you've always said that you shouldn't be afraid to follow your dreams, right? Also that if you want something, you should just go for it, right?"

"Err, yes Luna. Why?"

"Well… Hermione Granger, would you do me the pleasure of going on a date with me?"

"Luna?"

"Well, I've thought about this very hard, and I think that I've liked you for a very long time now… and, well, you said that a person should follow their dreams and that they should go for it if they want something… So, this is me going for it…"

"Are you really sure about this Luna? Because I know I am not an easy person… and I'm not even sure about myself and who I like and how and, and… It's just over with Ron and, and… I just don't think I'm ready for casual dating, let alone something serious right now. Sorry Luna."

"Oh, okay. That's okay. Then I'll take you to Hogsmeade as a friend, because you really need to get out of the library."

"Just as friends?"

"Just as friends."

"Thank you Luna, and you're probably right. I should get out of this library."
