The Mirror Of Erised
It was a silent December night. In the corridors a shadow of a long mirror was placed down by a mysterious person, not yet known. The mirror had returned to it's home. The Gyffonder commen room. And yet three 16 year old 6th years are bound to find it but for now the corridor was silet a 5:00 A.M. and Harry Potter lay awake and was disturbed by the closing of the common room portal.
"Ron," Harry yelled shacking Ron. "Ron it's back! The mirror i saw it er- heard it, whatever wake up!"
"What!" Ron was awake this time. That was a good sign. "The Mirror of Erised i went down stairs and saw the shaddow and it back!" Harry screamed. "Where's Hermione?" Ron asked impationally. "NOT THE MOMENT!" Harry seemed agitated. "Let's just go down to the libary and get Hermione and get my dad's cloak and sneek down there!" "Why?" Ron asked. "I want to see my mum and dad er- yeah..." Harry expaliaded quite quickly the thing Harry really wanted to see was he and Ginny together, without Dean. This is the thing he craved.
"So were going to let Hermione have a look?" Ron asked at the table at breakfest. "Only if she wants to.. why so concered?" Harry asked stilly. "I er- just thought i wanted to know what she saw" Ron said scratching his back. "Hello Harry!" The voise came from the Patil twins who often greeted Harry way to often. "Hi" Harry said walking out with Ron to find Hermione in the libary.
"This is not the greatest plan Harry remeber what Dumbledore told you!" Hermione said pacing now.
"You should totally look into it Hermione you'll never know what you'll see!" Ron said this enthusasticly as if he really was interested in what she saw. Ron put his hand on Hermione's shoulder. Hermione wen't faintly pink. "It's not a good plan, diwwitted atcually," Hermione put the hand on the table tapping "But i guess i never looked into it!" "Thanks Hermione" Harry said. "Yeah Hermione, thanks" Ron said. "I was just wondering Ron," Ron looked up in wonder "What do you think i'd see?" "Dunno" Ron replied. "Well you seemed interested... i got to go" Hermione picked up her things and Harry saw her almost skipping to the girl dormatiories. He had never seen her like this before.
Tonight Harry, Ron, and Hermione traveled under the invisablity cloak. Harry was the first to step up to the mirror. He saw his mother and his father waving. Just like in his first year. No Ginny. But then he remebered 'this mirror does not tell the future' as Dumbledore told him. Ron stepped up. "Wow..." Wispered Ron. "What is it?" Harry and Hermione said together. "I see y--- me as a national quittish palyer. "I can't --- i got to go" Hermione squealed. Then it was Bye-bye Hermione.
"What did i say?" Ron asked the next moring. "I think she expected you to see more like you expected her" Harry explained. "I expected none of Hermione" Ron said looking dumb stuck. Harry said no more.
"She's not here" Luna said quitely. "She is crying," Luna played with her raddish earing "I think it's Ron Weasley," Luna set over to get pudding. "She also said something about a mirror" Luna walked away. Harry said nothing. Just because her felt Hermione's hurt when Ron her in the mirror.
At midnight footstepts pattered to the mirror. Big brown bushy hair looked up into the mirror with a silent sob. Hermione didn't see anything at first. The she put her hand on the mirror and looked closer in. There they were. Kissing, holding eachother, Hermione lifted off her feet. Hermione siletly knew in her head this would never happen. She looked in amazement. Never would she think she'd see Ron. And Ron not see her. This was what she wanted this is what she saw. This was real. Hermione went back into her dormatory.
"Harry.." Ron turned over in his bed. "Yeah," Harry said. "I need to tell you something. Harry in his head was praying Ron would not blurt out 'I love Hermione' because he knew they love eachother but he'd never want them snogging all the time and be obnoticus. "Harry, I didn't see me on a quittish team i saw--" But it was Harry who interupted. "I got it. Explain no more. "Your brilliant your both brilliant" Harry said. Ron was dumb founded at how Harry explaiened it but he turned over and wondered if Hermione looked into the Mirror of Erised what would she have seen.
It was one of the biggest days of Ron and Hermione's lives. And for Ron by far the most nerveracking. Ron sat looking out the window at this perfect summer day. The callender beside Crookshanks read June 10th. It was Ron and Hermione's wedding day. Harry was of course the best man and sat down next to Ron to confort him.
"Harry," Ron began. "What if i don't deserve Hermione?" Ron was looking tearful. "I couldn't see anyone else more perfect for her. She had a choise between Ron Weasley and International Quiddish hero Vicktor Krum," Harry looked into Ron's sadened eyes. "And she chose Ron Weasley. "Right, Right" Ron smiled. "Just don't mention this to Hermione" Ron said quickly as he grabbed his tux that was under Crookshanks. "I'm sure she is questioning if she deserves you right now" Harry said. "Thanks Harry come on we need to get ready" Ron said apotinting at the clock. "Right" Harry said quickly.
The wedding was set at the "Burrow". It was a perfect place for Ron and Hermione to get married. Knowing the fact Ron and Hermione spent many good moments here, it just shouted 'RON AND HERMIONE'.
In Ginny's bedroom Hermione and Ginny were laughing at how right now Ron would be the most nervous person on earth at the moment. "It's the Yule ball all over again" Ginny laughed. "Yes, but i said yes to him this time" Hermione stood up to streached. "Does my hair look alright" Hermione touched her elagant bun on the back of her head. "Perfect" Ginny smiled. "Thanks again," Ginny continued, "For making me the maid of honor" Hermione smiled. "Couldn't find another person for the job" Hermione and Ginny hugged. After they broke apart Ginny saw the exitement in Hermione's eyes. This was the moment she relized she was the best person to marry her brother.
It was 2:00 when the guest started to arrive. The Weasley's sat proud in the front row next to the Grangers. Ron looked nevorusly at Harry and Harry gave him a don't-worry-Ron look. Ron almost settled on the alter when Ginny came in. Not only was Ron nervous, Harry was now too. Harry and Ginny walked down the aisle. Ginny wearing a brilliant brown dress that went right with the Orange flowers. Luna was next to walk down with Gorge. Then the music played. Ron tensed up. Harry couldn't help but notice the whole church went silent. Ginny was muttering under her breah 'Please work out I know it took them all long time to notice but please work out'. Luna tapped her golden high heels. Harry sped a smile at Ron. Ron gave a smile and then shot back ahead.
Hermione walked down the aisle. Never had Ron seen someone as beautiful as her in his life. Mr.Granger walked down with Hermione and kissed her once Ron and Hermione met on the alter. Ron payed no attention to anyone else in the world but Hermione. Hermione the same looking into Ron's bright blue eyes and smiled the bigest smile Harry had ever seen. They were perfect for eachother and Harry knew it. It's like time stopped and Ron and Hermione were the only people in the world. They focoused on eachother and exchanged rings. The vows where said. "I love you, Ron" Hermione said. "I know it's taken a long time but it feels good to say, I love you, Hermione" Ron said. "And you may now kiss the bride." Ron leaned in and so did Hermione. The held eachother and hung on. They kissed eachother perfectly.
At the Burrow, for the reseption, they anounced the Maid Of Honor and Best Man. Then the Weird Sisters band said "Now for the fist time Mr. and Mrs. Weasley!" Ginny and Harry were the loudest with sreaming and whisling. Harry gave Ron an aproving wink but he was focust on Hermione. After their fist dance Hermione and Ron sat down for the Maid of Honor speach and the Best Man speach.
Ginny was the first to rise, "Finally. I must say finally. You both loved eachother from the start, even fighthing couldn't hide that. In my 5th year I finally Decided," Harry shot a look at Hermione she looked tearfull, "There was no one better for my brother. Never think twice about it, Hermione. All those times you bickered I really never thought you'd get this far. Look at you now. This is by far the best Love/Hate relationship. Just remeber I may be younger than you guys but I have some pretty good spells if you guys start up with the fighting again. Congratulations Ron and Hermione!" Ginny sat down next to Harry.
Harry got up. "Congratulations to you both. Like Ginny said I never thought you'd make it this far but you did. Hermione I got to tell you Ron talked about you every minute of the day to me. I find it amazing you never showed your true feeling for eachother until the end of our 6th year. Hermione I'm sure you felt the same exact way about Ron. Never underestimate yourself Ron because Hermione chose you. When we were 17 I had to get used to you too as a couple. Now all i have to do is get used to is Hermione Weasley. Congratulations again!"
At the end of the night Ginny caught the bucaue. Harry had never seen Hermione so happy in his life. He knew in his heart Hermione and Ron would work out just fine together. It may have not started out as a happily ever after but like Ginny said "Look where we are now". Harry knew this was right.
Harry flashed a look at Hermione and Ron. Hermione's head was on Ron's shoulder. Ron had his arm around Hermione. This is how it should had been from when they first met eachother.
"I really hope Harry gets that memory," Hermione sat down on the side of the chair next to Ron. "I mean if he doesn't dumbledore is going to be furrious!" Hermione shook her head. "Harry is going to be fine, well i suspect" Ron laughed. "It is not funny Ronald" Hermione threw a pillow at Ron. "With that lucky potion and Slughorn off guard I mean he'll be fine" Ron gave a smooth cover up. Harry was convinced when Ron did thease such things just to get into Hermione's "good books". "Thanks Ron"
"Hermione can i ask you a question," Ron asked. Hermione was starring out the window at Hagrid's cabbin. "Yes, Ron I think we have came on that baces where we can ask eachther questions" Hermione looked slightly amussed. Ron got up. "Hermione, what exactly did I say in my sleep?" Ron asked. "Well it was---" Ron inturpted. "Don't say certain things or i'll have to kill you, Hermione" Ron scolded. Hermione laughed. "Always loved the sence of hummor in him" Hermione said quitely looking out the window. "What?" Ron looked taken aback. "You said...my name..." Hermione looked into Ron's eyes. "I don't know why but i know not for an important reason...." Hermione shook her head. "I remeber my dream..."
There was an ackward silance. "Ron, did you say my name because----" Ron inturupted. "Yes, and Harry knew that too.," Ron looked into Hermione's tearful brown eyes. "I never loved Lavender" Ron said. Hermione shaken said, "Well didn't we all know that one..." Hermione said. "But younever knew... I loved y---" Ron was leaning in as Hermione was too. They kissed.
"Harry!" Harry walked into the room. Ron and Hermione jumped. "Nothing, nothing at all" Ron said. "I was reading" Hermione was never a great lier. "So did you get the memory or what?" Ron and Hermione asked. "Yes, I am going to see dumbledore now!" Harry hurried out. "I'm going to go to bed" Hermione pointed to the girl's dormatories. "Yeah so am I..." Ron when one way and Hermione went that way too. They spent a minute trying to get passed eachother.
"You Idiots..." Harry said silently. "There was a window." Harry hurrided along the night corriador to find Dumbledore.
Year one Hogwarts:
"She knows too much!" Ron sat dwon on his bed. Harry knew part of this was because Ron had not answered a question this year. "I mean she has no friends and suddently she thinks were her best friends," Ron looked at Harry. "Count me out of that!"
Year two Hogwwarts
"I mean it wasn't my idea to save her from the troll... but," Ron looked at Harry. "She has helped us alot you know" Ron layed on his bed. "I'm going to sleep now. Harry found this affualy weird.
Year Three at Hogwarts:
"Well Harry Sirius Black is out to kill you isn't he?" Ron asked. "Well yeah...thanks Ron," Harry stared at the wall. "You know Hermione?" Ron asked. "I think so, Ron" Harry looked up at Ron, "You knows she's----Alright."
Year Four Hogwarts:
"I'm really tired," Ron looked up as Harry got out of his bed."Danced to much?" Harry made a joke out of this. Ron however frowened. "I mean I was up all night," Ron looked sad. "Becasue Hermione," Ron shook his head. "I don't know why she like... atacked me last night I mean i didn't do anything did I?" Harry thought 'well yeah' but he said, "You should talk to her," Harry began. "She's just going to shut the door on my face but I don't know" Ron sat down on his hands on his face. Harry wanted to to say 'I'm not the one in love with her' but he held her breath.
Year 6 At Hogwarts:
"What did I do!" Ron looked highly confussed. "I'm just dating another woman why does this bother her, really!" Harry thought this was an obious question but Ron can overlook things obvious. "I don't know," Harry walked to the common room.
"Won won!" Lavender's horrible Lavish voise roase. Hermione looked sad but kept reading her 'Hogwarts a History'. "Hey Lav-" But Lavender was akready kising Ron. "That was a nice date see you tomorrow WonnyKinz!" She left and Ron and Hermione was only left into the common room. Hermione was silently crying. "Mione, what's wrong?" Ron asked. She looked up but did not look him in the eye. "Maybe reading too long " Hermione said. "Well you do that always," Ron said uncertain. "Yeah well...." Hermione streached. "Look at me," Ron said. Hermione did not. Ron touched Hermione's face. "Mione, what's wrong?" Hermione looked into Ron's deep Green eyes. "Nothing" Hermione looked down at her work. "Does this have something to do with with my relationship with Lavender?" Ron was nervous about the answer. "Like I told you, nothing"
And Hermione sat back in the chair while Ron walked up the stairs when he was gone Hermione let out a great sob.
Year 7 Day after Battle of Hogwarts:
"Kissed any know-it-alls latley?" Harry sat down next to Ron. "I think she likes me I always thought she hated me but I think she does" Harry had no surprise to this. "And I think I like her" Harry was highly confussed. "Well were you certain you loved her when she snogged you?" Harry asked. "No," Ron looked red in the face. "I knew for 7 years" And Ron stepped out of the room to meet 'Mione once more.
"Tell me agin Harry," Ron got down on two knees "Is this how you do it?" Harry looked at Ron. "No," Harry tried to make a straight face, "Unless you are begging for her to marry you". Ron looked up "Do you think I have to do that?" Ron gulped. "No!" Harry sat down next to Ron. "Trust me she loved you since she was 12, she picked you over Krum, She flew birds at you, and cried everytime you and Lavender were toegther" Ron smiled. "Thanks but how did i not know all that?," Ron got up. "And it's one knee Ron" Harry smerked. Ron ran away.
By the time Hermione arrived to the Burrow Harry was gone. Ron took Hermione down to Hogsmeade. "Thanks again Ron this was so nice of you," Hermione looked at Ron's Green eyes. "I been thinking how it was so dumb for us to fight all that time when i clearly loved you," Hermione said. "And me too, I hoped you knew that!" Ron shouted because he was so nevous. "Yeah," Hermione laughed. "Oh, I'll take one butterbear thanks!" Hermione said to the waiter who just popeed up and frightened Ron. "I er, what she said" Ron was nervous. "Are you okay Ron?" Hermione sat up more. "really we can go home" Hermione looked sadened. "No, I need to ask you something" Ron looked up. They walked outside. "The answer is yes, Ron, you were kind of obvious back there" Hermione laughed. Ron took out the ring and put it on Hermione's right finger. "Is this how muggles do it?" Hermione looked down at her finger and saw that i should be on the left finger. "It's perfect" and they kissed.
Ginny was waiting at the window of the burrow. "Oh, why arn't they hear yet?" Ginny looked up and saw Harry. He sat down next Ginny. "How'd you know?" Harry asked. "I wake up early, and i've never heard Ron pase at his mirror saying 'I love you Hermione' since when i was in my 3rd year and Ron snapped Vicktor Krums action figure's arm off" Ginny streached. "That's the joy of living with Ron," Ginny looked ut the window again. "Never said he loved her but we all knew" Harry thought Ginny was in some sort of a trance. And then they waited.
They came back at 11:39. Hermione walked passed Harry and Ginny without a word. Ron came in "Why'd you do that 'Mione?" Ron ran after her. "What happened?" Ginny and Harry looked at eachother in fright, "It's your problem not mine that you do this, Ronald" Hermione said. "Did what?" Harry asked. Ginny looked at them. "Quit it both of you" Ginny was on to something. "What's my fult?" Ron asked. "That i fell in love with you and said 'yes'." Hermione looked up and Ginny started screaming! They hugged. "Ginny!" Molly called. "Who died gosh I was in bed and all you do is act like your brothers now that you are 22 years old" Molly came down the stairs. "No one died!" Ron called from the kitchen. "Ron and I are engaged!" Hermione was very loud this time. Ron and Hermione walked up to Molly hand and hand. "Why is it on your right finger dear?" Molly pointed at Hermione's engagedment ring. "Ron gave it to me like this," Hermione looked at it. "Well, at least we are together so i like it!" Hermione and Ron hugged again. They looked into eachother's eyes. They both felt it, this was right. "Finally" Gorge came calling. The rest of the Weasleys came down stairs. "I knew he picked a right girl Hermione," "Thank you Mr.Weasley!" Hermione ran off with Ginny. "I told you," Harry patted Ron's shoulder. "Thanks, mate" Ron smiled then drew his eyes to Hermione. Ginny and Hermione where loud and screaming, "What?" Harry and Ron asked. "Future maid of honor make way!" Ginny smiled and waved like she was a queen. "Here's the bst man!" Harry cam in. "Thanks!"
At the end of the night Ron and Hermione were left alone. "Wow!" Hermione said. "did i propose right?" Ron asked. "Perfect," Hermione smiled then played with her ring. They kissd once more. They looked into eachothers eyes. They were both thinking the same thing 'How'd we get here?'
