It was that time again, Hermione thought as she climbed out of bed and grabbed her wand from the beside table. She snuck out the room as quietly as possible, ripping the hairband she had on her wrist and tied her hair into a messy bun on the top of her head. Trying not to disturb her sleeping friend, she closed the door as soundlessly as she could and tip-toed down the stairs of the Burrow, her barefeet padding across the cold floor causing her to shivver slightly.
The house was dark, the only source of light being from the moon shining proudly through the gap in the curtains so she whispered 'Lumos' and her wand tip was brought to life by a light.
Hermione jumped, turning around and seeing Ron behind her, his wand casting the light and a lazy smile across his face.
"You made me jump, Ronald"
He chuckled softly, "Sorry. You knew I was coming down though but you should of seen your face"
Rolling her eyes, she grabbed his hand and pulled him into the gloomy kitchen and turning the light on. "Nox" she said before laying her wand down on the table. Ron did the same and ran his fingers through his already messy hair before walking over to her and wrapping his arms around her waist, protectivly.
"I always look forward to our time together" he whispered before leaning down and kissing her on the cheek. "My favourite time of the day"
Hermione blushed and tightly wrapped her arms around his neck, nuzzling into him and sniffing ever so slightly just to get a whiff of his smell. "Mine too"
Ron kissed her neck and worked his way up until he kissed the corners of her mouth then grinned against her before capturing her lips. Hermione responded immediately, grabbing a fist full of his red hair and slipping her tongue into his mouth urgently, needing to taste him and wanting to savour it forever. Their bodies were as close as they could possibly be and Ron's hands roamed up to her hair and tugged onto her hairband, setting her hair free then running his fingers through it.
"Much better" he said against her lips then slid his hands down to her lower back, gripping tightly and kissing her again with as much desperation as before, running his tongue along her bottom lip. "Mmmmmm" she moaned, running her hands down his back and up underneath his shirt, feeling his skin warm and soft against her fingers.
Ron pulled away and kissed her on the tip of the nose, one of his hands reaching up and stroking her cheek gently, his eyes boring into her's. "I'm the luckiest git in the world" he mumbled, a smile still across his face. Hermione chuckled and gave him a peck on the lips before untangling herself from him and walking over to the kettle. "Tea?"
He nodded and sat down at the table, moving a chair closer to him and resting his leg across over his other leg while leaning back and watching Hermione hurry around the kitchen to grab two mugs, milk and teabags. She handed Ron a mug of tea and eased her chair closer to him, placing the hot drink onto the table and reaching for his hand. He stroked his thumb across her hand and brought it to his lips and kissed it softly.
"When do you think we should tell them? About us" she said softly. "As much as I love our nightly meetings, I wish we could just be together all the time"
Ron sighed, "We can, Hermione. We can tell them if you want if it's bothering you, just thought it would be nice for us to have this without people pestering us" he said, sitting up and inching closer to her. "Y'know what my family are like, they constantly butt in all the time"
"I know, Ronald. I understand, we've figured out what we want and it's really working out. Don't you think?" she asked, smiling slightly, red creeping into her cheeks slightly. He chuckles, leaning over to kiss her blushing cheek.
"It's bloody brilliant" he says, "then maybe it's time. Atleast we've gotten comfortabe with eachother now so...let's do this"
Hermione giggles and leans over to kiss him, letting out a soft moan, their hands still connected. "In the morning, when you come down for breakfast? Kiss me. Infront of them" she says against his lips with a smile so wide that Ron couldn't help but widen his.
"It's a deal. Ha, y'know they're going to sit at that table completely shocked and I'm going to love every second of it" Ron mentions, "Nosy buggars. Aslong as there's no teasing you though, they can tease me all they like and I'm sure they will considering how long it took us to get together"
She nods, stroking his face with the hand not holding his. "Then we can kiss whenever we want and not only at midnight"
"We can still meet up at midnight, right?" he asked, "I love our night meetings. Unless you snuggle in bed with me?"
Hermione's eyes went wide before letting out a small laugh, "What's holding us back from doing that now if they'll only find out in the morning" she told him, standing up and grabbing her mug of tea, pulling his hand along with her. "Come"
Ron chuckles and stands up, putting their wands under his arm then grabbing the mug of hot tea by the handle, "I'm coming, I'm coming"
