A/N: I hope you like it! ^_^

At breakfast Harry, Ron and Hermione walked down to the Great Hall together. They were talking about the homework from the night before.

"I myself think that last nights Defense against the dark arts home work was pretty easy." said Hermione.

"Hermione, you think that all of the home work is easy! To you, it just comes natural!" Harry told her.

"Well, I don't know about you, but I am starving!" said Ron.

"Your are always hungry!" Said Harry.

"Yeah, but not like this!" Ron said. He knew what it was, he just couldn't tell Harry in front of Hermione! Well, in the note that she would get this morning (hopefully) it told not to tell Harry so he would have to tell him afterwards.

"I think that you're nerves about something," said Hermione. "Do we have a test today?"

"No, it's not that." replied Ron, and that was so true, but was he really going to tell Hermione why he was nervous if it concerned her? Only about fifteen minutes of sitting down to eat the mail came. After finding no mail for him he hurried out saying that he needed to go to the restroom.

Boy was he nervous all right! He felt like he was going to puke! Thankfully he didn't!

When he got back Hermione was sitting at the table beaming! He also noticed who was holding the note. "I thought that I put in the note not to show Harry?" said Ron as he sat down.

"I know, but he asked and gave me the puppy dog eyes!" said Hermione and Ron new that she was joking around by the way she said it. "Oh, and I forgot to give you my reply. Now where did I put that piece of parchment? Oh, here it is." Hermione said handing Ron the piece of parchment that said 'yes' nicely put onto it. Now Ron was beaming too.

'Could noon come any slower?' Thought Ron. He was just thinking about what Hermione's favorite foods were so he could hurry down into the kitchen to ask and pay the house elves (dobby) for making and packing them into a basket.

Ron hurried down to the lake 15 minutes early to set out a blanket and the food. About five minutes later came down a beautiful Hermione. As soon as she saw him, she started running. When she sat down, Ron said "Hello," and started to take out the food.

Hermione observed all of the food Ron took out. She even saw some things that she loved and he hated! Actually, she loved all of the food he was laying out. 'How did he know?' She thought. She eventually caught herself wondering aloud.

"I have my ways" was Ron's reply. "So, how has your day been?"

"Oh, until morning, fine," Hermione said. This made Ron wonder if she really wanted to be here with him. She said 'until morning' did that mean that after the note, her day went bad? She kept on going "Then the letter made it better." With that, Ron let out a sigh of relief. "What about you?"

"Well, the morning was normal, and then you said yes, and that made it... Wonderful." From then on, it was all small talk, until the end. "Hermione,"


"Would you go to the ball with me?" There, he said it. Then he saw a look of wondering on Hermione's face and quickly added "You know, just as friends?"

"Oh," She said sounding slightly disappointed. "Sure." said Hermione with more enthusiasm. 'At least I am going with Ron this time, even if it is just as friends.' Hermione thought.

"Is anything wrong? Ron asked, seeing a bit of disappointment on her face.

"Oh, no. Nothing's wrong, it is just that I'm a bit tired. I didn't get much sleep last night. Homework. I think that I will take a nap in my free period." Hermione said trying to cover up how she felt as going 'Just as friends.' "I think I will go up know." And with that she got up, helped clean up, and walked up the hill.

They were both happy to at least be going to a ball with one another.
