Who: Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger
What: Post-Funeral Unwinding
Where: Their flat
When: After the funeral
If Ron had been upset about not being able to go out flying with Harry after the Wake, he was over that the moment Hermione had burst into tears during the funeral. Having resolved to remain strong for his own sake, not wanting to have everyone in attendance watch him break down, he found that he was also doing so for Hermione, his arm around her almost the entire time.
Except that brief interruption when he'd made the mistake of trying to speak during the funeral. Bad idea.
But as the Wake continued on, Ron found himself growing weary of having to speak with everyone wishing to say their own condolences. A quick glance at Hermione told him that she felt the same, and he was pretty sure there wasn't anyone at the Burrow who he hadn't spoken to. So without telling anyone, he took Hermione's arm and walked her somewhere quieter, and then apparated them both back to the flat. Once there, he immediately took her into his arms, holding her. As much for her sake as his own.
