Chapter 7

“I love you, Hermione” Ron said the next morning.

“I love you too,” she said smiling and snuggling against his chest. They laid there for a few minutes before Ron spoke.

“Do you wanna go to the burrow today? To see everyone…and tell them the news?” Ron asked, already knowing the answer.

“Of course,” she said, kissing him.

“Great, lets get ready,” he said, standing up and heading towards the bathroom.

Before he went in he turned and looked at Hermione, “you coming?” he asked with a sly grin.

Hermione got up and ran into the bathroom, giggling. They took a shower then got ready for the day.

Ron put on khaki pants and a short sleeve polo shirt that showed off his muscles, with flip flops. “Nice outfit Ron,” Hermione said, seeing him.

“What’s wrong with it?” he asked, looking confused.

“Um…your shoes. If that’s what you call them,” she said in a matter-of-factly tone. “Can’t you wear some nicer shoes?”

“Like what?” he said, feeling a little annoyed, but amused at the same time.

Hermione walked over to his closet and looked at his shoes. She pulled out some ordinary brown shoes and turned to him. “What’s wrong with these?” she said.


“Wear these,” she said, handing them to him. “They’ll look better with your outfit.” She smiled at him.

“Fine,” he said, defeated and smirking.

Hermione looked at part of the closet. The part with her stuff in it. She was over there so often, and sometimes spending the night, she already had about half her clothes at Ron’s place. She finally chose a black skirt and a light blue top with a slight V-neck and lace on the bottom. She wore some slip on black shoes.

“I’m ready!” she said, turning around.

“You look pretty,” Ron said before walking out of the room.

“Thank you,” she said sweetly, standing on her tip-toes and kissing his cheek. “Ready to go?”

“Yeah,” Ron said, walking towards the door. He let Hermione walk out first before walking out himself. He shut and locked the door then turned around and grabbed Hermione’s hand.

“It’s only about 2:00, Mum won’t have dinner prepared until around 5,” Ron said. “We have a couple hours…anything you’d like to do?”

“Hmm…we could go to Hogsmeade? We haven’t been there in awhile,” Hermione said, “and I think a new shop just opened.”

Ron and Hermione spent most of the afternoon wondering around Hogsmeade, enjoying the shops and enjoying each other. Ron looked at his watch, “It’s almost 4:30, we should be going,” he said to Hermione.

“Okay, how are we getting there?” she said.

“Um…I guess floo,” he said, walking towards the Three Broomsticks. He went in, followed by Hermione. “Do you want to go first?” he asked.

“No, you can.”

“Okay,” he said. “See you there!” He picked up a handful of powder, “The Burrow!” he yelled and quickly whipped out of sight.

Hermione stepped in with a handful of powder and shouted “The Burrow!” and was also gone soon.


“Ronald? What are you doing here?” Mrs. Weasley questioned curiously at the sight of him.

“Me and,” Ron started as Hermione toppled out of the fireplace, “Hermione decided to come over for dinner.”

“Well, how delightful!” she said happily. “The twins are coming over as well! And as for Ginny…I don’t know. I never know with her now days…” she said quietly, more to herself.

Hermione glanced at Ron with a saddened look on her face. Ron slinked his arm around her and pulled her closer. “Mum? Where’s Dad?”

“Oh, he’s out doing some odd thing. Who knows. Ever since he retired, he just goes out on days to do things I know nothing about. He should be home in a bit,” she said merrily. “I need to start dinner, Fred and George should be over soon,” she added, walking off to the kitchen.

Ron sat down and looked around. “This place hasn’t changed one bit.”

“Nope,” Hermione said, sitting next to him. He put his arm around and they sat there for a while, in their own little world.

“Hermione? Can I show you something?”

“Yes, anything. What is it?” she asked curiously.

“Come on,” he said, getting up and grabbing her hand.

“Ron! Where are we going?” she kept asking as they went outside.

“You’ll see,” he said.

He led her down, into the middle of the woods. They reached a little hill, with a cave near the bottom. He walked up to it and put his wand tip at the entrance. It opened immediately.

“Ron…?” Hermione asked, very curious.

“Sshh…” he said as he led her a little ways along the already lit cave. He suddenly turned around. “Close your eyes.”

“Okay…” she said cautiously.

“Hermione, trust me, I’m not going to let anything happen to you,” he said, grabbing her hand and pulling her along. They stopped a little ahead or where they were. “Okay…open.”

“Ron, what—,” she said, cut off by the sight in front of her. “This…this is beautiful. What is this place?”

“I don’t really know. I found it the summer before first year,” Ron said.

He looked out and surveyed the cavernous walls before them. A waterfall ran on the other side. A pool was in the middle, full of crystal clear water. A “balcony” ran along the top, over the waterfall. There was another little space that had a couch and a few other little things.

“Ever wonder where I go when nobody can find me?” he said, grinning. “This is it.” He said, walking up the steps the rock formations had formed.

“Ron, this is unbelievable,” Hermione said, in awe still. “Are you the only one who knows about this?”

“Yeah…and you. It seems as if its only visible to me and those with me that I want to see it.”

“So not even Harry knew about this?”

“No, I planned to show you both, but…” Ron said trailing off.

“What do you do in here?” Hermione asked curiously.

“Sleep. Eat. Write. Read. Swim. Explore,” he said, “all sorts of things.”

“Wow, Ron. This is so incredible.”

She walked around and surveyed everything.

“Maybe after dinner we can go swimming,” Ron said, winking.

Hermione walked up to Ron. “Okay,” she replied, giving him a quick kiss and walking towards the exit. Ron caught up with her and grabbed her hand. He turned her around and gave her a passionate kiss on the lips.

She pulled away, “It never gets old.” She smiled and left the cave. Ron followed her and they went back to the Burrow for dinner.

“This is wonderful, Mrs. Weasley,” Hermione said, taking another small bite of her potatoes.

“Thank you dear,” she said, smiling warmly. “And how many times do I have to tell you? Call me Molly.”

Ron glanced at Hermione, she glanced back. He cleared his throat before saying “Well. Family,” they all looked towards Ron expectedly. “We have something to tell you,” he added. “Me and Hermione are getting married!” he finally finished.

“Oh Ron!” Mrs. Weasley said happily. “We wondered when this would happen!”

“Well done, Ronnikins!” Fred and George said.

The rest of the meal was spent talking about Ron and Hermione. After it was done, Ron and Hermione were sitting on the couch in the den. “Want to go swimming?” Ron whispered in Hermione’s ear.

Hermione smiled and nodded her head. “Well guys, we’re gonna head off. We’ll drop by later in the week.”

“Good-bye dears. Be safe,” Mrs. Weasley said, seeing them off.

Instead of going down the road, they made their way back to the cave. It opened up and they went pack inside. “So are we going to swim?”

“Yep!” Hermione said. She stripped down to her under garments and jumped in the water. She laughed, “are you coming?”

“Yeah,” he replied, getting down to his boxers. He jumped in after her, doing a canon-ball.

Hermione swam over to him and wrapped her arms around his neck. She pressed his forehead to his and kissed him on the lips. Ron broke the kiss and smiled. Then he disappeared under the water. He reappeared a few seconds later on the other side of the pool. Hermione whipped around and started swimming towards him. He dodged her and they continued playing this game. And some other games way into the night.
