"Remus, why are you looking at me like that? No, Remus! Don’t even think about it! NO! Remus put me down now!" Hermione giggled as Remus wrapped his arms around her waist, lifting her into the air and spinning her around. "Remus! Stop it!" Hermione laughed as she watched the world spin around in a blur.

"Fine," Remus said placing her feet back on the ground, yet not removing his arms.

"Merlin, Remus! I can’t see straight!" Hermione laughed as she tried to steady herself. He hugged her close to him, looking down at her affectionate.

"Why do you need to see?" He laughed covering her eyes.

"Remus!" Hermione laughed prying his hand off her eyes. "You’re awfully playful today aren’t you?" She asked smiling up at him.

"Always," he smiled, holding onto her hands, kissing her knuckles. He moved in to kiss her, yet she placed her finger on his lips.

"Nu uh babe, at this rate we’re not going to get any work done!" Hermione laughed leading him back to the tree by the lake. The air was brisk, yet not cold enough to keep them inside.

"Oh… alright," Remus said rolling his eyes as he sat beside her under the tree. He opened his Herbology book, flipping threw the pages slowly. "Professor Sprout really piled it on, didn’t she?" Remus asked smiling at her sweetly.

"Doesn’t she always?" Hermione laughed, leaning her head on his shoulder as his arm wrapped around her shoulders.

"OK, first question… name three effects of the herb Gillyweed?" Remus laughed looking down at her questioningly.

"The effects work for one hour, giving its user the power to breathe under water, while webbing their feet and hands." Why did she remember this herb? She couldn’t remember reading about it, but somehow she knew it. Suddenly the memories of the Triwizard tournament and the second task flooded back to her.

I’m forgetting, she thought to herself as she looked over at the lake, she remembered the Tournament and her old life, but only as if it was a dream.

"Your turn," Remus said as he handed her the book.

"What?" Hermione said being shaken from her thoughts.

"A sickle for your thoughts?" Remus said placing the book on the ground, and wrapping his other arm around her as well.

"Nothing… just going threw memories," she said smiling at him, trying not to indicate anything was wrong.

"You wanna talk about it?" He asked, with general concern in his eyes. Hermione smiled at him, taking his hand off her shoulder and kissing it.

"It’s nothing, come on… my turn," she said taking the book from the ground.

"OK, name what Mandrake plants are mainly used for?" Hermione said smiling, even though the name rung bells in her mind once again.

"Umm… oh I don’t know just tell me," Remus laughed, looking over the lake.

Hermione giggled, her eyes skimming the page. "The Mandrake plant is used mainly to… awake petrified beings," Hermione explained, as memories of her second year, and the chamber of secrets came back. This memory even more foggy. It seemed everyday that went by, she lost her memory of the old life more and more, and growing more attacked to this life.

"Oh yeah! I knew that," Remus said smiling at Hermione fondly. He noticed the red color to her nose and kissed it gently, hoping it would warm her slightly. She smiled; he was just too good to be true. "Don’t you think that’s enough?" Remus asked standing up, pulling her with him. "You look cold."

"Yeah… the test isn’t till Friday anyway," Hermione smiled as she looked across this Monday afternoon. Remus looked at his watch, smiling bitterly.

"Well, free period is almost over; we have ten minutes before Charms," Remus laughed, taking hold of Hermione’s hand and leading her back to the castle. They made their way to the Charms classroom, not exactly looking where they were going.

Suddenly Remus bumped into someone un-knowingly. "Oh sorry, mate," Remus said causing a boy with fiery red hair and bright blue eyes to turn around.

"It’s all… Hermione?" The boy asked smiling widely.

"Ron?" Hermione asked with a quirked brow, completely shocked. "Ron!" Hermione yelled throwing her arms around his shoulders.

"Hermione, I’ve been looking for you everywhere!" Ron laughed looking at her fondly.

"Well, I’m right here!" Hermione exclaimed as she noticed the slightly confused and jealous look on Remus face.

"Hermione, who’s your friend?" Remus asked eyeing Ron suspiciously.

"Oh… this is Ronald… he’s my cousin…go-ahead Remus, I’ll be in class in a minute, I haven’t seen him in forever and I want to catch up quickly," Hermione said covering herself quickly.

"Alright hun… I’ll save you a seat," Remus said feeling relieved as he kissed Hermione on the cheek and walked away.

Ron’s jaw dropped as he looked at Hermione in shock. "Hermione… please tell me that’s not the Remus I think it is!" Ron bellowed now that the corridor was completely empty.

"Ron, listen…" Hermione started but was cut off.

"Harry get out here!" Ron yelled making Harry sink out of the shadows.

"Harry, why are you hiding?" Hermione asked, looking at the boys with a huge smile on her face. For a while, she had completely forgotten what they looked like.

"What's got you so mad, mate?" Harry asked Ron as he hugged Hermione quickly.

"Well… maybe the fact I just saw REMUS LUPIN kiss her!" Ron yelled making Harry gape at her. Hermione looked at the ground blushing.

"Guys, it’s not like that," Hermione said in a small voice, feeling extremely nervous.

"Hermione, you can’t fall for him… he’s so old!" Ron yelled, throwing his arms in the air.

"Actually Remus and I, as of now, are the same age!" Hermione yelled, her face becoming red because of anger, not embarrassment.

"Hermione, don’t get to attached… remember, at the end of the year you have to come back!" Harry said looking at her a bit worried.

"What if I don’t want to come back?!" Hermione yelled, immediately covering her mouth. "No, I didn’t mean it like that!" Hermione said with a sad tone.

"No, Hermione… I think you did!" Ron yelled storming off. Hermione looked at the ground.

"‘Mione, what's so great about here that would make you not want to come home?" Harry asked with his hand on her shoulder

"I’m in love, Harry," Hermione said, bringing her eyes up to meet his. "I love Remus, more than I have ever loved another man," Hermione said as she looked around. "I know I can’t stay… but I want to so badly… I want to stay with him so badly," she said looking around the corridor, her eyes glittering with tears.

Harry wrapped his arms around her shoulders, trying to comfort her. "Hermione, what ever you want, I support you… believe me, Ron and I have been having one Hell of a time trying to get through school without you… but as long as you’re happy, so am I," Harry said smiling at her brotherly. "Ron… he just really cares about you. Ever since you left he has felt responsible," Harry said looking at her compassionately.

"Why?" Hermione asked with a quirked all the tears pushed back.

"You don’t remember do you?" Harry said looking at her puzzled.

"Remember what? Harry you’re not making sense." Hermione laughed uncomfortably.

"The night you were attacked… you had just had a row with Ron… you were so angry you stormed out of the house," Harry said looking at the ground.

"I… I can’t remember that," Hermione said, crossing her arms over her chest. Harry looked at his watch, noticing he had thirty seconds before the potion wore off.

"Hermione, the potion is about to wear off, I have to go," Harry said handing her a note.

"It’s from Dumbledore explaining why you’re late," Harry said giving her one last hug and kissing the top of her head.

"Harry… I’m gunna miss you… tell Ron I will miss him too… so much," Hermione said watching as Harry faded form view.

"Will do!" She heard him call before he was completely gone. Hermione began walking towards the Charms classroom, feeling a bit upset.

She opened the door just as the younger version of Professor Flitwick stood on the table. "Here you are, sir," she said as she handed him a note, and walked to the back of the class, taking the seat beside Remus.

"Oh, very good, very good," he said with a smile as she took her seat. She looked at her paper and quill, scribbling something down and passing it to Remus.

"I have to talk to you very badly tonight… meet me outside the common room at seven o’ clock. Love Hermione."

"What about?" Remus wrote back, not listening to the long, drawn out lecture Flitwick was giving them on something Remus and Hermione knew all to well.

"I’ll tell you then… it has to do with something my cousin said.” ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

“Hermione, where are we going?" Remus asked as Hermione pulled him along the empty corridor.

"To the Room of Requirement," Hermione said softly not looking back.

"How do you now about that?" Remus asked with a quirked brow.

"I’ll tell you once we’re inside," Hermione responded coming upon the entrance. I need somewhere to talk in private, I need somewhere to talk in private, and I need somewhere to talk in private, Hermione thought as she paced the wall. Suddenly the door appeared, and Hermione pulled Remus into the room filled with bean bag chairs and a small table.

"Hermione… now please tell me what's wrong," Remus said wrapping his arms around her waist, looking into her eyes pleadingly.

"Remus… tell me you love me," she said looking away.

"What?"

"Just say it!" Hermione said on the verge of tears.

"I love you," he said softly, placing his hand on her cheek.

"Tell me no matter what you’ll believe me… and still love me," Hermione said shivering with fear as she looked up at him.

"Of course I will… now just tell me what's wrong," Remus said holding onto her tight.

"Remus remember that night when I said I was afraid to fall for you, because I couldn’t have you?" Hermione asked looking into his golden eyes sadly.

"Yes… how could I forget?" He replied, smiling at her comfortingly.

"Well the real reason I said I couldn’t have you is…" Hermione started but faded away.

"Hermione… you know you can tell me anything," Remus said running his fingers through her hair.

"Remus… I’m from the future," she said finally looking at him with tears falling from her eyes.

"What?" Remus asked puzzled, thinking she was joking. "Hermione are you toying with me?" He asked with an anxious tone.

"I wish I was… Remus, I was bitten by a Werewolf on the night of August the 26th… of 2005," Hermione said slowly, as Remus’ face was over come with a look of horror. "You were my Defense Against the Dark Arts professor in my third year… and we have always been close. You proposed to send me back in time so you could help me… but you never imagined… I’d fall in love with you," Hermione said as tears fell from her eyes. "Ron isn't my cousin… he’s my friend from the future… he’s practically my brother," Hermione said as she looked up at him.

"Hermione… your serious aren’t you?" Remus asked running his fingers threw his hair.

Hermione nodded, "I can understand if you want nothing more to do with me Remus… after all these secrets I’ve kept from you," Hermione said in a soft shaky voice.

"What?" Remus asked moving closer to her, wrapping his arms around her. "Hermione I love you… no matter what!" Remus said swaying her from side to side. "Does anyone else know?" Remus asked as she sobbed into his shirt. "

No," she mumbled, looking up at him with tear stained cheeks. "Only you," she said as he placed his hand on the back of her head, bringing it back to rest on his chest.

"Hermione… we’ll get through this together," Remus said smiling down at her.

"Remus you don’t understand… at the end of the year Dumbledore will come to retrieve me," Hermione said with a trembling voice.

"Shh," Remus said as he closed his eyes.

"Hermione… I don’t care if a whole team of Aurors comes to get you…there’s no way in Hell I’m giving you up," Remus said with a small smile. "You were meant to come here, and we were meant to fall in love, nothing more, nothing less," Remus said with a small smile.

"But… in the future… I wasn’t with you… so there is no way…”

"Then we’ll have to change the past now won’t we?" Remus said cutting her off. He brushed his lips against hers, trying to comfort the best he could. "I love you… and I can’t live with-out you," he said smiling at her with such a love Hermione had never seen.

"I love you too, Remus," Hermione said, sinking into his arms, they would find a way to be together… they had to!
