The Girls Of Gryffindor

Hermione sat in The Gryffindor Common Room surround by a large stack of books. The rest of the students Were off around the castle making the most of the little time they had left before the sun set. She on the other hand sat making notes to help her study for the O.W.L.S. She had just finished her section on Arithmancy and was starting on Potions when Ron and Harry burst through the door red in the cheeks from Quidditch Practice.
"Hermione! Why didn't you come watch us?" Ron said flinging himself onto the couch near her.
"I was studying Ron! You know we have the O.W.L's this year."
He grinned at her. "Yeah, I know. You remind me all the time."
Hermione hurmphed and buried her nose back in her notes. While it went un-noticed by her Harry gave Ron a wink and then headed upstairs leaving Ron and Hermione by themselves in the common room. Ron cleared his throat and Hermione glanced up at him.
"What? I didn't do anything."
"You cleared your throat. It sounded like you were trying to get my attention."
"No. Go on with your note-taking then."
Hermione gave Ron a strange look then went back to work. A few seconds past then...
She smiled to herself then looked up at her favorite Redhead again. "Yes Ron?"
"Remember that big row we had last year after the Yule Ball?"
"How could I forget?"
He grinned weakly. Then continued on. He seemed to have gotten a lot paler. "Well do you remember telling me that I should have asked you first and not as a last resort?"
Hermione's heart jumped. "Yes."
"Well, this is me asking you first. That is, if you'll go with me. Hermione, would you like to be my date to the ball?" Ron was bright red all over. Hermione had never seen him blush this badly in the entirety of their friendship. She felt herself begin to blush as well.
"Of course I will."
Ron looked at her happily. Hermione was so pleased that all she could do was smile and nod happily. Ron's face broke out in an ear to ear grin and he rushed over to the table where Hermione sat and lifted her from her chair spinning her around. She laughed and squeezed her eyes shut putting her head on Ron's shoulder. Slowly Ron stopped Spinning and set Hermione back down on her feet. He didn't remove his hands from her waist though. She opened her eyes and looked at him with adoration.
"You have an eyelash." He said moving his hand to her face and gently removing the lash with his thumb. "Make a wish." He said holding it close to her mouth. Hermione closed her eyes and blew softly. Ron put his hand on her cheek. "What did you wish for?"
Hermione smiled. "Wouldn't you like to know Ronald Weasley."
Softly stroking her cheek in one hand and wrapping his other around her waist and pulling her closer to him, Ron bent down and Kissed her.
After they had broken apart Hermione whispered "A wish come true."
Ron blushed, Hermione stood up on her toes and began to kiss him again.
