For the first time in a long time, Hermione slept through sheer exhaustion. After lunch she had gone upstairs to strip the bed of it's sheets, but instead just laid down on top of them and curled up on top of the duvet. At some point, Ron had come upstairs to help her, and instead, had laid down in her shadow, mirroring her position. He curled his body around her, protectively, and slept soundly too.
