She’s going to do it. She swears she is, because dammit, she’s a Gryffindor and Gryffindor are supposed to be brave, aren’t they?
Walking toward the twins, a nervous twist in her stomach and a hesitation in her step, Hermione tries to work up the courage to talk to Fred and George. She spent so much time yelling at them that it’d be nice to talk to them every once in a while. Especially Fred. There was something about him…
“Hey, Granger!” a new voice interrupted her thoughts, and she turned to see Zacharias Smith, a Hufflepuff in their year that was far too nosy for his own good.
“Zacharias,” she greeted him with a deflated sigh.
“Could you tell me more about Cedric’s death? Potter must have told you-”
“No.” Hermione replied, both angry with him for asking and frustrated with herself for losing the confidence she thought she had.
“Come on! He was our friend!” Zacharias complained, though Hermione suspected it was less noble than he was making it sound.
“And Hermione is our friend.” interrupted a smooth voice quickly. Hermione felt two people behind her, and a gentle hand on her shoulder. She looked up to see George, who winked. Fred was glaring at Zacharias in a way that made Hermione’s stomach flutter. Was it possible? Was Fred jealous?
