Sirius moved towards Hermione and put his hands on her shaking shoulders. The rain was tapping on the window relentlessly, and his girl was holding back tears. He knew she was more angry than sad, but it did nothing to make him feel better.
“I’m so sorry Sirius,” she said in a tiny voice. He put a kiss on where the neckline of her dress met with her skin, in hopes that it would be reassuring.
“You’ve got nothing to apologise for,” he said meaning every word. She didn’t need to apologise for she had done nothing wrong. “I can handle a little scrutiny from your parents, love. They worry for you and your future. I admit their method is a bit unsavoury but… They’ll come around.”
Hermione shook her head and took the apple pie she had put on the counter to cool. She had been trying to cook a perfect pie since she had heard her parents were coming to visit them from Australia. She wasn’t a good cook and was an even worse baker, but she was stubborn and the result was perfect like everything else she had put on her mind to achieve. Sirius hated that after all her hard work she had done for her parents’ visit everything turned so gloom.
