Ron and Hermione's first kiss. VERY short! Takes place in a room full of Harry and every Weasly child. Oh my.

Chapter 1: Right then...
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Harry opened the door of the Weasly’s living room, and walked in to find he was the last to arrive.

Ginny was sitting cross-legged on the floor with a purring Crookshanks in her arms. George lounged in an armchair with Fred sprawled on top of him. Percy was standing erect beside them both; casting them disgusted looks, as though touching was an insult to him. Bill was on the couch, leaning on one leg and exchanging exasperated looks with Charlie, who stood across the room.

The reason for the looks, as Harry quickly deduced, was his two best friends. Both were standing in the middle of the room yelling incoherently to each other. Correction: yelling incoherently over each other. It was doubtful they could hear what they themselves were saying, never mind the other party of the argument.

Harry walked over and plunked himself down beside Ginny, who was successfully ignoring the very hard to ignore noise.

“Then why didn’t you say anything?!” Hermione was screaming at a red Ron. He spluttered some, and then mumbled an answer no one could quite hear.

“How long have they been like this?” Harry whispered to Ginny.

“Oh, what seems like forever.” She shrugged and scratched Crookshanks behind the ears, “I’m thinking of Confunding them both.”

Harry put a finger to his ear delicately, “I’ll help.”

“You hexed me Hermione!” Ron shrieked.

“Only because you deserved it!” Hermione retaliated.

“How could I possibly have deserved to grow boils all over

my face?”

George snorted on his laughter, “It was bloody brilliant


Fred nodded his agreement, “Shame you missed it.”

“You completely and totally deserved it!” Hermione screeched.

“What did I do?” Ron’s eyes were actually bulging now. Hermione gasped for breath for a moment. She answered in a much quiet and not even remotely calm voice.

“You kissed Lavender…”

It seemed everyone froze. The intire dynamic of the room shifted, and everyone was caught in it.

And right there in front of every one of his siblings, Ronald Weasley kisse d Hermione Granger. It was more like a peck. Hermione just stood there stiffly; her eyes wide open in what could only be shock. Then Ron backed off, and everyone stared, utterly dumbfounded.

“Er…”Was all Charlie said. Bill tried to nod. Ginny looked like she wanted to giggle but was holding back out of courtesy to Hermione.

Ron was staring at his hands with a funny expression on his face, as though he had just realized what he had done. It was a highly amusing mix of shock, self-satisfaction, and utter horror. Harry watched as his friend’s ears turned a scandalize shade of pink.

Finally, Fred spoke.

“Ron!” He sounded both surprised and mildly impressed. In fact, Harry concluded, everyone looked pretty impressed. With of course, the exception of Percy, who looked personally offended.

Harry was still stuck on puzzlement, and not quite up to ‘impressed’ yet. Hermione still hadn’t moved. Then the door flew open and in stalked Mrs.Weasly, looking particularly flustered. Her hat tipped at an odd angle, and underneath it her hair was in tangles. Her fur shawl also looked as though it had been wrapped a little to tightly over her shoulders.

“All right, everyone! Off we go!” She smiled at them all, while still looking very tired. Harry chalked it up to lack of sleep that she didn’t notice the intense atmosphere in the room. It was rally pretty hard to miss.

Everyone walked out single file, no one saying a word, even the twins (although they looked suspiciously pink from what could have been suppressed laughing).

Harry looked over at Hermione with some concern. She hadn’t moved an inch since Ron had kissed her.

“Er…Hermione?” He elbowed her lightly in the ribs.

“What? Oh, Harry.” Hermione looked at him as though really only seeing him for the first time in a long while, “Right then! Shall we be off?”

And Harry watched as she half walked/half ran from the room.
