"I'm positive," Fred said, giving Hermione a grumpy look. She knew she hadn't said any of it out loud. "You did some sort of magic to know what I did, didn't you?" She crossed her arms over her chest and looked at her girlfriend, knowing it had to be a spell.

Then Hermione started to talk to her, without moving her mouth. Fred finally got what was going on and blushed. She nodded and looked at her girlfriend again. "Sorry for getting snappy with you but yes, I heard that," she said. Furrowing her brow, Fred decided to try it herself.

Hermione? What's going on? Is this because of the conduit? Fred felt a little silly and blushed again. "Did you hear that?"

Me - Surprised

"I swear, Fred, I didn't do a spell of any kind. I never even liked it when our divination teacher said she could read our futures from tea leaves or things like that, so I wouldn't dream of trying to do that, much less read someone's mind! Even you! Especially you!" Hermione told her, wanting to take her girlfriend's hands in hers but not able to since she had her arms crossed across her chest.

But when she tried aiming her thoughts at her, she could see Fred's reaction and knew that she had heard her even before she said it. They could read each other's thoughts now? She had never even thought that could be possible.

"I heard it," she said softly, walking forward and placing her hands on Fred's arms, pressing her forehead to hers. I love you.

Fred - Cute smile noe

When Hermione said she could hear her, Fred uncrossed her arms. "Oh. So it's because I'm your conduit?" she asked as Hermione pressed her forehead against hers. "I love you too and I'm sorry I got snappy with you." She leaned forward a bit and softly kissed her girlfriend's lips.

Pulling back, Fred furrowed her brow. "I guess we'll have to ask Rupert about it tonight," she commented as she glanced down at the list again. She knew they would have to leave soon if they wanted to cook the food for their dinner with Rupert and Wesley.

"We should go soon. There's a place close by that we can walk to and get the things," she said. She didn't want to leave the room but Fred knew they should. Stepping forward, she wrapped her arms about her girlfriend and tightly held her.

Me - Seeing Love

Hemione nodded at Fred's question. "I think so. I think there are aspects to this connection between us that we never could have imagined," she told her, reaching up to Fred's cheek. "Probably that aren't even anywhere in any scrolls or books or anything."

Fred was definitely right that they should ask Rupert about it that evening while they were over at Wesley's. He might have seen something Hermione herself hadn't during the research or be able to help them figure out what else they might expect.

When Fred said they should go, she nodded but instead found herself in a tight embrace. She held her girlfriend tightly for a few moments. It'll be all right, love, she found herself thinking to her without even thinking about it. It's a gift. You're my gift.

Pulling back slightly, she kissed her gently. "Come on. We shouldn't keep the guys waiting too long."

Fred - laughing noe

I know. It's just really strange and new. I love you so much, Hermione. Fred pulled back and smiled into her girlfriend's kiss. "We should. I don't want to be late," she said, picking up the list and putting it in her pocket. She then took Hermione's hand and led her downstairs, happy to see things were finally quiet and peaceful.

"I think Connor must be napping," she commented as she walked out of the hotel. The day had turned out to be nice and she was glad to be spending it with Hermione. "How do you like California so far? I know Wesley complains some times about the lack of rain and gloom England has to offer. Or is it sunny a lot in Colorado?"

Holding her hand tighter, Fred turned a corner. Toward the end of the street, there was a small market. "I'm thinking maybe we should just get the chicken from the deli. That'll give us time to make the salad and get cleaned up before we go over to Wesley's."

Me - Smile

Hermione smiled when they stepped out into the late afternoon sunshine and took a deep breath. "It's beautiful. Besides the obvious reason - which is you - I quite like it here. It's sunny in Colorado, but not all the time. The weather there can be anywhere from snow to rain to sun to hot. It's not at like here, or England for that matter."

She let Fred lead her to around the corner and down the street to a grocery store, nodding at Fred's suggestion that they get some chicken from the deli. "Sounds like a good idea. It'll also let us spend some more time with Wesley and Rupert instead of in the kitchen."

They walked inside, Hermione looking around at everything that was available. She had spent two years in the US now but still wasn't used to some of the differences, including all the choice the Americans had. "I'm afraid you'll have to show me where we need to go, love. I'm not much up on stores like this, I'm afraid."

Me - Laughing

Hermione chuckled softly at Fred's statement that she wouldn't ever want to leave the bedroom except for the fact that they might be missed. "As wonderful as that sounds, I think you're right," she told her, reaching up to touch her girlfriend's temple briefly.

Crookshanks decided to make his presence known at that point, so while Fred went over to the closet to get some clothes out, Hermione reached down and picked him up. At the word "chicken", his ears perked up and then he began rubbing his head against Hermione's shoulder.

"I think that's a yes from him," she said with a laugh as she set him down on the bed and scratched behind his ears. "I think he'd quite like that. Plus he deserves a bit of a treat for being so good about the move from Moonstar to here."

She pointed to the bathroom on the side of the room where she had put all her stuff. "I'm going to go have a wash and get changed. I'd...I'd ask if you'd want to do that together, but we might never get out of here if we do."

Fred - Devious

Fred pouted at Hermione before she went into the bathroom to wash up. Turning, she looked at Crookshanks on the bed and went over to pet him. "Lets get you some chicken," she said, after scratching the cat's ears. She walked over to the box of chicken and pulled out one of the thighs.

Going back to the bed, Fred sat down and started to pull pieces of chicken off the bone. She handed them to Crookshanks and smiled. "I love Hermione very much, you know," she said to the cat as he ate the chicken. "I hope that's okay with you." Crookshanks purred and Fred smiled. "I'll take that as a yes."

Once all the chicken was off the bone, Fred stood and through the bones away before gathering her clothes. She went to the other bathroom and started to wash up as she hummed. You know, I think I'm going to skip wearing panties tonight. Just to punish you for not letting me wash up with you.

With a grin, Fred finished changing and walked out and sat down beside Crookshanks and watched him finish his meal.

Me - Frozen

Stepping into the bathroom, Hermione set her clean clothes and wand on the edge of the bathtub and stripped off her shirt before running some water into the the sink. She had her wash and decided to charm her hair clean since there wasn't time for her to take a shower and wash it.

Once she was done, she had just stripped off her jeans to change with she suddenly heard Fred's teasing voice in her head, telling her what she wasn't going to be wearing. Hermione suddenly found herself a bit weak in the knees at the thought. You are a terrible tease, love, she managed to think back.

Grabbing her clean clothes, she changed into them and pulled her hair up off her neck since it was so warm outside. Once she was ready, she went back into the room to find Fred already out there and waiting with Crookshanks, who was happily devouring the chicken she had given him. She looked over Fred, thinking about the fact that she wasn't wearing any panties and grinned.

"Ready to go?" she asked after tucking her wand in her backpack and slinging it over her shoulder. She held her hand out to her.

Fred - Beauty

Fred stood from the bed and took Hermione's hand. "I think I am," she said with a smile. She leaned forward and softly kissed her girlfriend's lips before pulling back. She reached over and picked up the bags from the grocery store and laughed when Crookshanks meowed while looking at the bag. "No more for you."

She led Hermione down the stairs and out to the front of the hotel. Fred had called a cab while waiting for Hermione and was happy to see it was waiting for them. "I didn't think Wesley would like it if we just sorta popped into his apartment," she said as she opened the back door for Hermione.

Once her girlfriend was inside, Fred slide in beside her and told the driver Wesley's address. While they drove through the side streets of Los Angeles, Fred held her girlfriends hand and looked over at her. The freckles on your nose are so adorable. Maybe later, after we're done at Wesley's, we can come back and I count them as we lie naked in bed.

Me - Heh

Hermione laughed softly when Crookshanks appeared a bit pouty at the fact that he couldn't have any more chicken and shook her head. "Pippy's been sneaking you food behind my back, hasn't she?" she asked before giving him a scratch behind the ears. "You be good until we get back."

When they went down to find their taxi waiting, Hermione nodded at Fred's thought that Wesley wouldn't appreciate them just appearing through apparation. Rupert wouldn't be surprised - he had actually travelled that way before himself, she knew - but Wesley didn't have the same experience. From what she understood, Wesley's father was rather like Harry's aunt and uncle had been, thinking that those in the wizarding world were somehow all dangerous and crazy or evil, which was quite ironic considering that he was a Watcher and dealt in the occult all the time.

As they drove through Los Angeles, Hermione looked out the window, taking in the scenery until she heard Fred's thought in her mind. Turning to her, she raised her eyebrows and gave her a grin. That might take awhile, she told her, running her hand up Fred's thigh. I have freckles in some very interesting places. And when you're done, I can trying that kissing spell on you again.

Just then, the driver pulled up in front of an apartment building, and after paying him, they climbed out of the car and headed inside and up to Wesley's flat. Rupert answered when they knocked on the door.

"You're looking much better," Hermione told him, giving him a hug before entering.

"I feel a lot better. Amazing what a little tender loving care from your fiance and a day away from hospital can do for you," he said, giving Wesley a smile.

Me - Seeing Love

Hermione looked up when Rupert and Fred walked back in, holding each other's hands. Her eyebrows arched, almost mirroring Wesley's own reaction.

"Is there something you want to tell us, love?" Wesley asked, his tone teasing. "That was rather fast work."

"Oh, hush," Rupert responded, squeezing Fred's hand before letting it go. "We were just talking about how we were lucky to have you two."

"Funny that. We were mentioning the same thing," Hermione said, reaching over to wrap her arm around Fred's waist from her sitting position and drawing her down on the arm of the couch. "We also decided that coming to live in the States turned out for the best."

Fred snorted at Wesley's question and shook her head. "I fell in love with him because of the way he cuts up carrots. It was bound to happen," she said, grinning at Wesley. He chuckled a little and took Rupert's hand.

When Hermione pulled her down onto the arm of the couch, Fred bent over and softly kissed her girlfriend. "I'm glad you came to the States too. You've made my life a lot better, sweetie," she said with a smile. She then glanced over at Wesley. "Tell me more about your ceremony tomorrow."

"Oh, well, a local coven is performing a binding ceremony for us. It'll just be a few people there. I believe Buffy and Dawn are coming from Sunnydale, and we invited Cordelia but she can't make it," he said with a shrug. "I'm quite looking forward to it."

"As am I, love," Rupert said, giving Wesley a small kiss.

Me - Smile

"I certainly can't compete with someone who can cut up vegetables so well," Hermione said with a laugh, enjoying the interaction the four of him were having. It was nice to be able to have friends like this again, to talk to other people and feel like she was part of something and not outside, trying to hide from everything and everyone because it seemed like they were staring at her, only seeing her as Hermione Granger - friend of the boy who defeated Voldemort.

She smiled up at Fred when she mentioned that she was glad she had come to the States, then looked back to Rupert and Wesley while they talked about their binding ceremony.

"I'm sure it'll be lovely," Hermione said.

"It looks, though, that were not the only ones," Rupert said, motioning to the tattoos that now adorned both of their wrists. "I noticed them earlier when you first walked in. Mark of the Beloved?"

She blushed and looked up at Fred. "Yes. It--we felt it right. It feels right."

"Of course it does," he said with a smile. "It shows you're together."

"Exactly."

Fred - laughing noe

Fred smiled and looked down at the tattoo on her wrist before looking down at Hermione. She was very lucky to have the woman sitting next to her. "I think they're beautiful," Fred said as she moved off the arm of the couch and sat on it next to Hermione. She slipped her arm around her shoulder and pulled her close. "The wine should be chilled soon."

"We could play a game to pass the time," Wesley suggested.

"Anything but that blasted word game!" Giles said, crossing his arms.

"You'll just mad because I'm the champion!" Wesley protested.

Fred cleared her throat. "No you aren't! I've beaten you several times!" she said, raising her eyebrows.

Wesley scoffed a little and crossed his arms too. "Now, don't get that way, love," Rupert said before softly rubbing his thigh.

Fred smile and snuggled closer to Hermione as she watched the two men in front of her kiss.

Me - Watching

Hermione leaned against Fred, laughing softly as the others discussed playing a board game. The last game she had played had been Wizard's Chess, so she knew that whatever game they decided to play, she'd probably be the worst player, so Rupert would probably have nothing to worry about.

The argument, however, seemed to be nipped in the bud when Rupert started rubbing Wesley's thigh and Wesley looked over at his fiance. Within moments, they were kissing, and it was easy to see the love the two men had for each other. Hermione knew that their binding ceremony tomorrow was going to be quite the celebration, even if was a very small gathering. That actually probably would make it even more special.

When the boys finally came up for air, they smiled at each other then over at their audience, Wesley blushing slightly. Hermione laughed and shook her head.

"It's only fair, considering the number of times you've managed to catch us," she told him.

"True," he murmured, leaning his head against Rupert's.

"And besides, you'd all probably beat me no matter what game we decided to play, considering I don't think I've played an actual Muggle board game since 1991," she told them, squeezing her girlfriend's hand.
