happy

current mood: happy

Continued from here.


Hermione looked around the table and smile, thinking how nice it was to be able to sit down with a few people and just have dinner together. During the school year, she normally ate in the main hall with the others, helping to keep an eye on the students. That of course meant that most meals were never finished without interruptions and were also quite loud.

Then, during the summer, she always tended to eat by herself in her rooms after spending the day in the library. When she remembered to eat. On those days, Pippi usually brought something to her.

The wine was very good, she had to agree, even though it wasn't something she normally ever drank. She sipped at her glass, smiling when Fred suggested that they go somewhere with Wesley and Rupert once they got back from their honeymoon.

"I'd like that - I haven't seen anything really in Los Angeles," she said.

"We can figure out something when we get back," Rupert replied, pouring himself and Wesley another glass of wine. Hermione was still working on her first.

"Sounds wonderful. Any ideas about where to go?" She looked over at her girlfriend. "Anything in mind?"

Fred - Not pleased

Fred thought about Hermione's question. "We could do the waterfront carnival. As long as it isn't at night, mind you. A lot of vampires hang around there then," she said before taking a bite of salad. She thought for a moment. "We could go up to Anaheim and visit Disneyland!"

"I don't know Fred," Wesley said as he pull a piece of meat off his piece of chicken. "Disney employs a lot of different demons. No human would want to be in one of those blasted costumes all day."

Fred's eyes went wide and her mouth dropped open. "Are you serious?" she asked. Wesley slowly nodded her head. "Do all amusement parks use demons?" Once again Wesley nodded. "So when I went to Six Flags I had my picture taken with a demon?" Wesley sighed and nodded. "Thanks for ruining my childhood, Wesley."

Looking up from his plate, Wesley grinned and started to laugh. "I was just kidding with you, Fred. I'm quite sure it's humans in the suits," he said as he continued to laugh.

Fred scowled at him and kicked him under the table. "Mean," she muttered. Wesley yelped and looked over at Rupert.

"Don't look at me. I wouldn't mess with her, Wesley. She could send you through that wall just by hold Hermione's hand," he commented with a shake of the head.

"I kinda like that idea," Fred said, looking at Hermione. "Got your wand on you?"

Me - Amused

Hermione was about to mention that she had never been to Disneyland and was actually kind of interested in going when Wesley started telling Fred that Disney hired demons. She looked back and forth from her girlfriend to Rupert's fiance, trying to figure out if he was messing with them or not. She knew places often hired demons and other creatures to do the work that humans never wanted to do - even the Ministry of Magic. In the wizarding world, house elves were the favorites, but they did use others.

Then Wesley admitted that he was messing with Fred, and when Rupert told him not to mess with her, given what Hermione and she were able to do together, she grinned broadly.

"I left my wand in my kitchen, but I'd be glad to get it," she told Fred, acting like she was about to get up from her chair to go find it.

"I was just teasing!" Wesley repeated.

Hermione laughed and sat back down. "Well, since you and Rupert are getting married tomorrow..."

"Thank you," Rupert said dryly. "I do appreciate the fact that my fiance is going to show up to our wedding in one piece."

Fred - Beauty

Fred laughed, happy to see Hermione was getting along with Wesley. She would've hated it if the two didn't hit it off. Hermione was the love her life, and Wesley was her best friend. And knowing they liked each other, made her grin. "Just remember who has the magic, and who doesn't," Fred said, winking.

"That's not fair!" Wesley said before he laughed. He turned to Hermione and smiled. "And thank you for not turning me into a toad."

The rest of the meal was spent chatting about the wedding, and other things. When everyone was finished with the main course, Fred helped Rupert clear the table, taking the plates back to the kitchen. Once everything was cleaned out, Fred took out the chocolate pie they'd gotten at the store.

"Oh, I don't think I can eat another bite," Wesley said when he saw the pie.

"Come on, love, you need something more than bones and skin for me to hold on to," Rupert said, with a wink. Wesley shook his head, and once again started to blush.

Me - Admiration

"Anytime," Hermione told Wesley with a grin. "You're too cute to turn into a toad, and I don't think Rupert would ever speak to me again if I did anyway."

"Perhaps. Depends on how cute a toad," Rupert said with a wink.

After dinner, while Fred and Rupert cleared the table, Hermione looked over at Wesley. "I'm glad they've hit it off. Rupert's the closest friend I've had since the battle with Voldemort."

"Fred's easy to like, and Rupert's not anywhere near as fearsome as people seem to think," he said. "And we love both of them, so of course they're going to get along."

Hermione nodded in agreement to that. It was quite true - they loved both of them. Looking up when Fred brought the pie in, followed by Rupert carrying the dessert plates, she smiled and reached out to squeeze Fred's arm gently while Wesley blushed over Rupert's comment.

"I think the pie looks really good," Hermione told Fred. "It's been a long time since I've had chocolate pie."

They all ended up having a piece each, Wesley finishing his first despite his insistance that he couldn't possibly eat anymore. Once they had finished and cleaned up the table and the kitchen, they noticed that it was very late, so Hermione and Fred said their goodbyes, hugging the boys and telling them they'd see the next day.

Once they were outside in the hall, Hermione wrapped her arms around Fred and gave her a kiss. "Think we should apparate back to the hotel instead of messing around with trying to find a taxi?"

Fred - Hair braided

Fred just shrugged as she looked down at the pillow, and listened to Hermione's praise. She then listened to her instructions of pushing the power down, as if she were putting it in a box. Chewing on her bottom lip, Fred almost said no but she knew she had to do this for Hermione, or she didn't think she would be able to touch her again. "Okay," she quietly said.

With her eyes closed, she started to push the power down. She felt Hermione's hand on hers, and Fred almost pulled it away. But when she felt herself get control over her power, she smiled a little and started to push it down. It took a lot of concentration, but it seemed to work.

Opening her eyes, she looked at Hermione for a moment. "It worked but it made me tired. Maybe I should try mediation or something?" she suggested as she leaned forward and softly kissed her girlfriend, glad no more glasses were breaking.

Me - Seeing Love

Hermione watched the changes in Fred's face, the smile that turned up her lips when she concentrated on her words, doing as she instructed. They held hands, no energy passing between the two of them.

"You're doing great," she said softly.

When Fred opened her eyes, she could see that she was feeling better about things, especially when she kissed her, the energy passing between them that time the type they made themselves. "Meditation might help, actually," she responded with a nod. "It'll help you center yourself and make control easier."

Reaching up, she brushed Fred's hair back from her face and gave her a loving smile. "I love you so much." She was so lucky to have this wonderful woman in her life.

"Do you want to rest now?" she asked, not wanting to push her into anything she might not want to do after the stress of what had just happened.

Fred - Beauty

Fred blushed at Hermione's words. "I love you too," she said, leaning forward to softly kiss her girlfriend. "Thank you for helping me. That was a little scary." She eyed the broken glass and looked at Hermione again. "I think I want to rest, while I hold you." Standing from the bed, she stripped off her clothes and climbed back into the bed.

She snuggled under the blankets and waited for Hermione to join her. "If you were to go back to England to get those scrolls, how long would you be gone?" she asked, not wanting to be away from her girlfriend for too long. The thought of them being separated for more than a few days, made Fred's chest tighten.

"How would you get back there? Apparate? Ride a broom? Do the floo networks go that far? Or do you fly on planes?" she quickly asked. Fred then blushed and ducked her head a little. "Sorry. I'm just curious is all, and I know you gave me a book, but it's way over there, and I'm too comfortable to get up."

Me - Pillow Talk

Hermione nodded at Fred's decision to just be held for the rest of the night, completely understanding. "You never have to thank me for helping you, love," she told her as she got up to take off her own clothes. "You mean more to me than anything else in the world, and I'll do whatever I can for you, no matter what."

Looking over at Fred, she stopped for a moment before climbing into bed with her, taking a moment to absorb all the questions that she had just shot at her rapid-fire. "It's all right." Pulling back the covers, she got into bed and cuddled up to her, wrapping her arms around her to hold her.

"It wouldn't take me long at all to go and get the scrolls, actually," she commented. "Since I have the fireplace over there hooked up to the floo network, I could use it to go to the Leaky Cauldron. Diagon Alley and Gringotts are right there. No need for planes - the floo network goes all over the world. And it would be a little far to ride a broom."

Turning on her side, she grinned and ran her hand through Fred's hair and gave her a smile. "So depending on how busy the bank is...probably a couple of hours, tops? I know Rupert mentioned waiting until he and Wesley got back from their honeymoon, but would you feel better if I retrieved the scrolls as soon as possible so we can start going through them?"

Fred - Bored noe

Fred had been awake when Crookshanks had jumped on the bed, and meowed. When she opened her mouth, she started to giggle at the sight of a few strands of cat hair on her girlfriend's mouth. "Morning, sweetie," she said, reaching over to wipe the hair off Hermione's lips. "No offense, but no kissing until you brush your teeth."

Crookshanks let out another meow and Fred moved over to allow Hermione to get out of the bed. Fred then sat up on the bed and stretched her arms out. "I could use a big cup of coffee, and a donut right about now," she commented before standing up.

She went to the window and noticed it was raining. She shook her head and looked over at Hermione. "This kind of weather makes me want to stay in bed all day," she said. Shrugging, she went back to the bed and cuddled under the blankets.

Me - Come Hither

"Believe me, love - even I don't want to kiss myself," Hermione told her as she slid out of bed and went over to her bag to pull a few things out. "I'd love some pumpkin juice and warm bread with honey butter myself. I should probably check with Magic Castle and see if they know where the closest wizarding food shop is. Otherwise, I may have to make a quick stop with Rupert when we go to Diagon Alley."

Pulling out one of Crookshanks favorite tins of food, she opened it and emptied it into the bowl she had also brought, setting it down on the floor next to the water they had already set out for him to have at. She looked over at Fred when she mentioned staying in bed because of the weather and looked over at the window.

"Oh, it would rain today," she said with a sigh. Going over to the bed, she reached out and touched Fred's face. "Hopefully, it'll stop soon. I'll be right back, though."

Heading into the bathroom, she rinsed out her mouth and brushed her teeth. Once her mouth felt normal again, she went back into the bedroom and crawled back into the bed with Fred.

"No more cat hair," she said with a grin before giving her a long, deep snog.

Fred - Happy Looking to side

Fred returned Hermione's deep kisses, wishing they could stay in bed all day. Crookshanks, however, reminded them they had over things to do by jumping on the bed. Pulling away from her girlfriend, Fred looked down at the cat, and shook her head. "Yeah, I know, we have to get ready for the wedding," she said, scratching the cat behind the ears.

Crookshanks seemed satisfied with the answer and jumped off to find a sunspot to clean himself in. Fred turned toward Hermione and grinned. "In order to save on time, we should probably shower together. We wouldn't want to be late for the wedding," she said with a grin.

She slid off the bed and picked up her bathroom before peeking out the window. "The rain stopped," she said, smiling at Hermione. She then picked up a towel and went to the bathroom, wondering if her girlfriend was going to follow.

Me - Embarrassed

Rolling her eyes, Hermione propped herself up on the bed as Fred scratched Crookshanks behind the ears. "I don't think he cares about the wedding - he's just jealous," she said with a smirk. She watched him as hurried off across the room then turned her attention to her girlfriend, her eyebrows arching when she mentioned them showering together.

"Yes, good idea that," she said, slipping out of bed again, wondering if they could actually behave themselves around each other long enough. She knew she was as bad as Fred when it came to needing to touch her. She didn't think she'd ever be able to get enough of her.

As she sat up, Fred told her that it had stopped raining, which made her smile. Someone was looking down on Rupert and Wesley that day, it seemed. She then watched as she headed into the bathroom, the water turning on a moment later. "Crookshanks, stay out of trouble," she told the cat before grabbing her own towel and following her.

Inside the bathroom, she put the towel down and then stepped into the shower behind Fred. Reaching over, she picked up the shampoo. "I can wash your hair if you'd like."

Fred - looking down unsure

Fred stepped out of the shower and dried herself off as she watched her girlfriend look through her bag. "You should unpack one of these days, unless you're planning on leaving," she said with a small wink. She watched as Hermione pulled out a maroon dress. "I like that. You should wear it." She then dropped her towel and went over to the closet to find something for herself.

She didn't have much to wear since most of her clothes were bought by Cordy at a thrift store. The only dress she really had was the one she'd worn to the ballet and that was much too formal for a wedding. Looking back at Hermione, she softly sighed. Fred didn't want to admit she didn't have anything to wear.

"I...seems I don't have anything to wear," she said. Fred didn't know why that embarrassed her or why she felt like crying about. Maybe it was because she always felt below other people, especially girls who had better things to wear. "I-I haven't really been shopping since Pylea."

She crossed her arms over her stomach and looked down at the floor. "I don't know what to do," she said with a small shrug.

Me - Wand

Laughing, Hermione looked down at her bags and shook her head. "Definitely not planning on leaving any time soon. It's just that we've...well, with everything that's been happening between us, I've sort of...forgot. I will unpack later, though."

When Fred said she should wear the maroon dress, Hermione smiled and slipped it on over her head, pulling it down and smoothing it out. She then looked over at her girlfriend, frowning when she saw her expression as she looked at the clothes in her closet. She hated seeing that look on her face.

Reaching down into her bag, she rooted around for a few moments before pulling out a blue dress, which she took over to Fred along with her wand. "Here, love, hold this up to yourself," she said before stepping back. She then held up her wand and touched it to the dress. "Abeo amplitudo."

The dress suddenly changed a bit, shimmering as it did, until it was a bit slimmer in the bodice and slightly longer in the skirt. Hermione smiled when it was done.

"Try that."

Fred - BW Dressed up

Fred didn't want Hermione to feel sorry for her and almost told her she could find something to wear when she saw Hermione take a dress out of her bag. She watched as her girlfriend brought the dress over to him and had her hold it against her body. Watching with interested, she watched as the dress changed sizes. And when it was finished, all she could do was nod.

"Okay," she said. She slipped the dress over her head, and it fit perfectly. Turning around, she gave Hermione a watery grin. "Thank you." Fred didn't want to cry but she could feel the tears stinging her eyes. "I-I've never really had any girls who were friends so I'm a little new to all this girly stuff - like sharing clothes."

She shrugged a little and pulled her girlfriend against her and held her tighter. "Thank you," she said again. When she pulled back, Fred gave her a small smile. "I should probably allow you to get dressed, huh?"
