Author’s Note: If people find the dating scenes unbelievable, I do apologise. It’s been almost nine years since I’ve had a first and second date. Although, on the plus side, I mustn’t be too bad at them, since I’m still together with that beautiful woman... So why are you still here?” Harry asked Ron. Search me,” said Ron. Go home then.” said Harry. Yeah, maybe I will!” shouted Ron, and he took several steps toward Harry, who did not back away. “Didn’t you hear what they said about my sister? But you don’t give a rat’s fart, do you, it’s only the Forbidden Forest, Harry I’ve-Faced-Worse Potter doesn’t care what happened to her in there! Well, I do, all right?

And what about the rest of my family, ‘the Weasleys don’t need another kid injured,’ did you hear that?” Yeah, I-” Not bothered what it meant, though?” Ron!” said Hermione, forcing her way between them. “I don’t think it means anything new has happened, anything we don’t know about; think, Ron, Bill’s already scared, plenty of people must have seen that George has lost an ear by now, and you’re supposed to be on your deathbed with spattergroit, I’m sure that’s all he meant-” Oh, you’re sure, are you? Right then, well, I won’t bother myself about them. It’s all right for you, isn’t it, with your parents safely out of the way-” My parents are dead!” Harry bellowed. And mine could be going the same way!” yelled Ron. Then go !” roared Harry. “Go back to them, pretend you’ve got over your spattergroit and Mummy’ll be able to feed you up and-” Ron made a sudden movement: Harry reacted, but before either wand was clear of its owner’s pocket, Hermione had raised her own.

You choose him.” Ron, no... please... come back, come back!” She was impeded by her own Shield Charm; by the time she had removed it he had already stormed into the night.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
