A/N: This is sadly the last chappie! Seriously this time! I can't believe I didn't realize that the whole ending had somehow gotten chopped off! I'm so sorry I feel so stupid! Well just read/review and keep your eyes out for the Sequal!

Hermione felt Ron wraps his arms around her as she turned into him, sobbing into his chest as he rubbed her back. Something crashed in the background, followed by an angry grunt by Harry. This couldn’t have been happening. It wasn’t even fathomable that the man who had guided them through Hogwarts, befriended them, and helped them out so many times could be dead. Tears stained Ron’s shirt as he too allowed them to fall freely from his eyes.

Remus sat there with his jaw dropped in an unbelieving way; his long time friend was gone. He could feel his world tumbling apart. James, Lily, Sirius, and now Hagrid? He bit his lips as he imagined all their faces, so young and full of life. He hated this, it wasn’t right and it wasn’t fair! Hadn’t he gone through enough? Hadn’t losing all his friends along with Hermione enough? Why did fate hate him so? Why was fate so keen on destroying him? He watched as Hermione sobbed into Ron’s shoulder much like she had when he was young. When they were in love.

He looked around the room, watching as Harry held tightly onto Ginny, her entire body shaking. Why couldn’t that be him and Hermione? He shook his head, that was sick. He was old enough to be Hermione’s father, not her lover. He felt tears stinging his eyes as he fled the room, everyone watching him as he left.

Hermione watched as Remus scampered out of the room, practically running up the stair as tears blazed down her cheeks. It wasn’t fair, she had loved Remus. Yet every day that passed she forgot more and more about the past, about the Marauders and her love for Remus. Everyday she grew closer to Ron, feeling a love of their own growing between them. Only their love wasn’t as strong, as amazing, or as pure as the one she had felt for Remus. She buried her head into Ron’s chest once more as he led her away from the Kitchen, out into the garden where they could be alone.

“It’s okay Hermione, everything will be fine.” Ron said softly as he stroked her hair, kissing her forehead lovingly.

“How can he- How could we- Why weren’t they- Oh Ron!” Hermione stammered as she clung to Ron tightly, the brisk night air stinging her cheeks. Ron placed his hand under Hermione’s chin and forced her to look at him, a small smile on his face.

“I love you, Hermione.” He said softly, pushed a few strands of hair away from her face.

“I love you too, Ron.” Hermione whispered as she remembered all the times she had said that to Remus.

“Hermione…I want to talk about something with you.” He said as he lead her over to a bench, sitting down on it as she snuggled into him.

“Talk about what?” She asked as he wrapped his arm around her, looking her deeply in the eyes.

“The future.” His voice had never been so serious. Hermione felt a shiver move down her spine as she looked up at him, what was he talking about?

“What about it?” She asked as a small smile crept onto his face.

“You love me, right?” He asked as she nodded. “Hermione…I want you to marry me.” Hermione felt her whole world shut down, her heart began to hammer in her chest as she looked at him wide-eyed.

“Ron-“ He placed his finger over her lips to stop her from talking.

“I want to be with you forever, Hermione. I know we’re young, and I’m not talking about right now but…When we get out of school will you Marry me Hermione?” Hermione felt tears welling up in her eyes. What about Remus, what about everything they had been through. She pressed her eyes closed as she bit her lip, she loved Ron so much. The only problem was she loved Remus as well. Her mind began to hammer painfully as she searched through her thoughts, what was she supposed to say? ‘Oh sorry Ron, I love you but I love an old man more.’ She opened her eyes slowly, she knew she’d be happy with Ron, and that it was more acceptable. She put on a small smile as she looked up at him with tears in her eyes.

“Y-yes Ron.” I said as a huge smile spread across his face, causing him to reach in his pocket and pull out a small box.

“I got you this incase you said yes.” He said as he opened it, reveling a small diamond ring. Hermione gasped as he took hold of her left hand, placing it on her ring finger. It felt heavy, no matter how small it was. Heavy with guilt and pain. Ron took hold of her face as he leaned down and kissed her passionately. He stood up after a few minutes, pulling Hermione up with her. They walked back into the house with their arms wrapped around each other, walking back into the grief stricken kitchen.

“What are you so happy about?!” Harry spat at Ron, watching as all the people in the kitchen turned to look at them.

“Everyone…Hermione has agreed to marry me when we get out of school.” Ron said proudly as the kitchen went silent. Mrs. Wealsey sat their for a moment, her jaw dropped and eyes wide.

“She-She did?” She asked as a smile erupted onto her face. “Oh Hermione!” Molly squeal as she rushed forward and through her arms around the young girl. “I have always thought of you as a daughter, now you will be!” Ginny ran forward and hugged Hermione as well, tears still in her eyes.

“Oh Hermione, now we really will be sisters!” Ginny giggled as Harry walked forward and shook Ron’s hand, hugging Hermione as well.

“I’m so happy for you two.” Harry said as Remus walked back into the room, his eyes slightly bloodshot.

“What's going on?” Remus asked as Hermione and Molly both look at the floor, Harry and Ron took hold of Hermione as Ginny beamed at Remus.

“Hermione and Ron are getting married!” Remus’s jaw dropped as he looked at Hermione, watching as her eyes fell to the ground. Never had he ever wished so much that Dumbledore had succeeded in wiping his memory. He felt anger bubbling inside him as he looked at Ron. Ron had waited for Hermione for a few months, he had been waiting for her for years! He forced back the feeling, reminding himself that if this was what Hermione wanted, then he wouldn’t get in the way.

“Really? Wonderful!” He said with false joy as he shook Ron’s hand, turning and walking up into his room. He wanted to scream, he wanted to pull his hair out and die. But all he did was walk over to his dresser, pulling out the same box of memories as before. He flipped it open, pulling out a small velvet box. He flicked it open, his jaw dropping as he looked inside. It was impossible, it had to be! Inside of the box was a golden ring, a diamond surrounded with rubies sparkling back at him. That was it, that was the ring he had used in his seventh year to ask Hermione to marry him. He realized things had been forever turned, he had lost Hermione. Only this time, it was permanent.

Epilogue:

Hermione looked across the bloody battlefield, her heart and mind racing as spells were being thrown in both directions. She jumped across a body as she flung an Avada Kedavra curse right into the chest of Draco Malfoy, watching as he silently fell to the ground. Ron was right behind her as then ran across the mud, yelling at her to keep moving. They Deatheaters were out numbered, and falling quickly. Hermione looked around to see Harry and Voldemort were locked in an epic battle that had been prophesized so many centuries ago. “Hurry ‘Mione!” Ron urged as she continued to run, trying to dodge spells as she threw them as well. She looked behind her, noticing Ron was fighting with a Deatheater.

“Ron!” She screamed as the Deatheater turned to her.

“Avada Kedavra!” it hissed as a green beam began to speed towards her.

“Hermione!” Ron yelled in a horrified voice as Hermiones muscles tightened, waiting for the impact that never came. She looked around in a confused way feeling something heavy against her. She looked down, seeing that someone had thrown themselves in front of the curse. Tears streamed down her cheeks as she knelt down. On no, Oh Merlin please no! She turned the body over, seeing Remus Lupins lifeless eyes staring into the adyss.

“NO!” She yelled as she hugged him tight to her, her heart breaking into a million pieces. “No! Remus I’m sorry! I’m so sorry! Please don’t leave, please don’t go! I love you I’ll be with you please just don’t go!” She begged as Ron raced beside her, pulling her off the ground.

“We have to go Hermione, Voldemorts dead!” Ron said with a twinkle in his eyes as Harry came racing towards them.

“He’s dead Ron!” Hermione screamed as she pointed towards Remus, her entire body shaking.

“Who is?” Harry asked as he looked towards Remus, his eyes widening in shock.

“Oh Merlin!” Both Ron and Harry shouted in unison. Ron hugged Hermione against him, tears wetting the top of her head as the rolled off his cheeks.

“We-We have to get out of here.” Harry finally said as he pulled on Ron’s sleeve, tugging them away.

“Remus.” Hermione whispered as Ron kissed her temple. Hermione looked over her shoulder to where Remus was lying. It was as if he were reaching for her, even though she knew just hysterical. “I love you.” She whispered as she looked at Remus’s lifeless body.

“I love you too, Hermione.” Ron muttered into her hair as they all walked away from the field. Hermione felt empty, as if something inside her died. She didn’t both to correct Ron as the wolf that still barley existed in her let out a painful howl. He was gone, he was truly gone. Hermione hung her head as she imagined everything they had been through, everything that had happened.

"Dumbledore pulled me aside and told me," he said, tossing his hair back. "But… I can see it in your eyes,"
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"Don’t. You. Dare. Say. Anything. About. Her!" Remus barked; anger in his eyes. Sirius shivered, Remus had never lost his temper like this.

"REMUS! PUT HIM DOWN!"

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"What?" Hermione asked a bit confused to his actions.

"Every time I get even close to kissing you James runs in," Remus said. His eyes shifting around the room. He took her chin in his hands, glad the coast was clear. He moved closer to her, so their lips were barley apart.

"Hey guys!" A now extremely annoying voice said as it entered the room. This time, rather than pulling away, Remus continued kissing Hermione.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"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.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"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,"
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

"I won’t lie to you because your not children, Their Head Master Igor Karkaroff, has just been arrested.” He said still looking out the window in a saddened way.

“Why?” James asked, holding onto Lily’s hand behind him.

“For…For being a Death Eater.”

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

“Hermione listen to me, no matter what they do to me, no matter how many curses they put on me, I will never forget you, and I will never stop loving you! Do you hear me!” He said forcefully as he shook her gently, his heart aching in grave pain.

“I know Remus, I love you too!”

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

“Don’t forget me…”
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

All the memories burst into Hermione’s mind at the same time as she fell to her knees, her face in her hands. Why had she been so stupid? Why had she pulled herself away from Remus? She screamed out as sobbed into her hands, her entire body rattling as she wrapped her arms around herself trying to hold her drifting pieces together. “No…” She choked out as she cried uncontrollably. Her mind was reeling with everything that had happened, every kiss, ever touch, ever word. It wasn’t fair, it wasn’t right! Remus was dead, and she’d be the one left behind with the pain of knowing he wasn’t there anymore.

She looked up into the sky, a full moon shining over head. She felt her entire body shaking as she glared at it. She hated it, she hated everything it stood for. Everytime she looked at it she would remember him. Everytime the she thought of him it would hurt. Everytime she hurt she would imagine what could have been, what should have been.

Every single time.

When the full moon rises.
