That night was like many at Hogwarts very quiet and the only people in the Gryffindor common room were Harry and Ron they had been waiting for the last fifteen minutes for Hermione the return from her head girl duties (Ron and Hermione are head boy and girl).

Ron was lying on the sofa reading Hogwarts: A History firstly to show off to Hermione But also to try and finish an essay for professor Binns. Then he herd Harry sniggering he looked up from his book "what do you want" Ron said.

"I was just thinking that you act like Hermione, and now you are always reading when you are reading" Harry replied.

"Thanks a lot" Ron said sarcastically

"Your welcome," Harry said with a smile.

Ron looked back at his book then he looked back at Harry who was still smiling "OH COME ON, HARRY, I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE THINKING, AND NO, I DO NOT LIKE HERMIONE" Ron shouted as quiet as he could.

"Alright, alright you don't have to shout, I was just thinking you do like her, because it is so obvious." Harry said crossing his arms.

About ten minutes later Harry saw Hermione walk through the portrait hole he got up and told Ron he was going to the toilet but blocked Hermione and whispered "Hermione I want you to do some thing for me."

"What do you want because I'm tired, and it is ... Eleven o'clock at night and I just had to break up a party in the dungeons and I almost got hit by three spells, so I really have to get to bed because we have potions tomorrow and I need to concentrate as it is NEWTS year and I am expected to get one of the best grades in our year." Hermione took a deep breath after saying all that.

"Just stand by the table in the corner and listen I will only take a minute."

Harry walked over to Ron and put his hands in his pockets and walked in front of him, taking his book away, and tossing it away, "Oh, Ron how do you like Hermione these days?" Ron only raised his eye brows, so Harry continued, "Oh come on Ron I know you fancy her alright?"

"YEAH ALL RIGHT YOU KNOW WHAT? I DO, I DO REALLY LIKE HERMIONE, NO. .NO I LOVE HERMIONE ALRIGHT AND AT LEAST SHE IS NOT HERE TO HEAR ME COS' IF SHE DID I WOULD BE SO EMBARRASSED!"

There was an un easy silence, where Ron just stood there still pointing at the portrait hole, and Harry standing back with his eye brows raised and back in the corner Hermione stood there edging towards the girls dormitories, and then ran off. She started to cry, so Ron turned around, and seeing that it was Hermione, he started to run after her, but Harry stopped him, "Ron just let her cry it out."

"OK but I don't see what made her cry."

Just then, Neville, Seamus, and Dean came down. "What just happened?" they asked in unison.

"It's a long story."

"Well, we won't be getting back to sleep so spill."

Well that was that my first and I think best and probably longest story that I have written and like I said at the beginning I would like to thank ilive4cake00 for being my beta reader.
