His best friend just died. His last friend. He just had him back for two years.
His best friend´s son just lost the last bit of a family, saw someone die the second time in less then one year. He doesn´t care about himself, he just holds Harry close, tries to protect him while Harry is screaming and crying.

It’s ideal for Headquarters, of course. My father put every security measure known to wizardkind on it when he lived here. It’s unplottable, so Muggles could never come and call — as if they’d ever have wanted to — and now Dumbledore’s added his protection, you’d be hard put to find a safer house anywhere.❞
Just as he had decided not to say anything, Hermione took matters out of his hands. “Is it Cho?” she asked in a businesslike way. “Did she corner you after the meeting?” Numbly surprised, Harry nodded.

[…] “Oh,” said Ron, his smile fading slightly. “Are you that bad at kissing?” “Dunno,” said Harry, who hadn’t considered this, and immediately felt rather worried. “Maybe I am.” “Of course you’re not,” said Hermione absently, still scribbling away at her letter. “How do you know?” said Ron very sharply.
