Harry's POV (annearchy )
Hermione sat with me next to the windowsill, clasping my hand in hers, trying to warm it. I looked up toward her and my heart caught in my throat. She's the one who has always believed in me, always been there for me, even when I didn't appreciate what she was trying to do. But how can I tell her what I've been thinking of these past few months? How can I tell her about the prophecy, and what it will turn me into? How could she possibly be my friend or...anything more (and I can't even think about that, much less wish for it)...if she knew what the prophecy will force me to become?
I swallowed past the lump in my throat and rubbed her hand gently in return. I wish I could be brave enough to tell her.
Hermione's P.O.V (word_waterfall )
I felt my brow furrow, harry had that tense air around him, like he wanted to say something.
I leaned forward- if he told me what was wrong- I could help him.
"There you are, Mate!" Harry released my hand, and stood up quickly, plastering his face with an all over fake grin- that Ron would never see through. I hit my head on theglass in frustration, and stood up, putting on my own fake grin...That Ron cold never see through.
Hermione's P.O.V (avonlea_dreamer )
I sighed, even as I managed to smile at Ron.
Another few minutes and Harry might have told me, confided in me... Whatever it was that had been bothering him for months now since the end of last year. I was afraid to know and yet I knew I had to, otherwise I couldn't help him. And I did need to help him.
"Hey, Ron," I heard Harry say easily.
"What's up, Ron?" I asked too, as I quickly and surreptitiously squeezed Harry's hand for a second, to let him know that whatever it was he needed to tell me, I'd be there to listen.
Ron's P.O.V (lady_carrie )
I shrug my shoulders as Hermione asked me how I was doing.
"Fine, what are you guys doing?" I ask as I see Hermione squeeze Harry'shand and then let go. I sigh knowing whatever they were talking about it just between them, I hate it when they do that.
Ron's P.O.V (avonlea_dreamer )
I did hate the subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle signs that Harry and Hermione's relationship with each other transcended their friendship with me, in some strange, indefinable way. But I had almost gotten used to it too. Merlin knows it had been that way since our first year... It just bothered me, some times more than others...
Hermione glanced at Harry quickly before saying, "Oh, just talking. Nothing much. Anything new?"
I managed a grin. "Lunch will be in a bit, so I was just wanting to see if you two wanted to eat."
Harry P.O.V (word_waterfall )
I looked at my feet, and cleared my throat.
"I've already had something,I have a lot of homework to do, Ya know,,," I shrugged and grimaced- I was lying so easily it was scaring me. Ron gave me a sympathetic nod,and turned to ask Hermione. I could see her debating with Hunger and not leaving me alone. I turned, suddenly needing to get out.
