What lighthearted fun! This glimpse makes us think of the "what ifs" of relationships that do and do not happen. (I always though Hermione and Harry were a better couple than she and the redhead, anyways.)
I do wonder how Hermione feels about Harry. It's obvious that he has a bit of a crush on her, but her actions could be interpreted either way: a mutual crush or just enjoying the romantic moment.
Either way it's the magical moment that slipped by, never to be acted upon, but oh how it opens the door to a reader's imagination.
Oooo, that was really sweet and cute!
I'm guessing she had a couple of words with a brainless dolt called Ron before Harry found her. That boy can crush without even engaging his brain.
I really hope there is more of this to come. I think I picked a fantastic option for the first story I have read on this site.
It's also quite well written. I enjoyed it profusely, but please don't leave me hanging with that ending. They at least need to talk again the next day.
