Narrative Who: Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger When: May 26, 2000 Where: Hermione's hide-out Rating: PG, possiblly Status: In progress Summary: More Ron/Hermione awkwardness!
If things had not been awkward enough, Hermione caught Ron delivering a letter from Harry. She wasn't supposed to know that he was there, and that proved to make their short conversation seem to drag on for years. After asking him for food for Crookshanks, he left, and Hermione was left to hope that he returned quickly. Crookshanks really was running low on food, but she knew that though Ron didn't particularly like Crookshanks, he wouldn't try to harm him.
Hermione was laying on her bed with Crookshanks, reading an old book of hers. He had just settled down after chasing around Hermione's conjured birds for awhile. She thought it would keep him happy and not make him so restless. It didn't really work, but she did it nonetheless for some form of entertainment.
Crookshanks was curled up at Hermione's side and had just closed his eyes. Hermione turned the page of her book and sighed. This was how most days went- cleaning and reading. What else was there to do?
