Nagini Chase Kiss
Hermione could hear the snake’s hiss in her ears as she and Ron raced hand in hand down the steps leading to the Entrance Hall.
“There’s something I need to tell you.” Hermione realized he was about to confess his love for her, say those three little words to her for the very first time. She gasped as she spoke her reply.
“I don’t want you to say…anything that you wouldn’t say if you weren’t about to be killed by a giant snake. It’ll just ruin it.” She said it almost prissly, like when she would boss him and Harry around as children.
“Fine. Then let me say it with the snake out of the picture,” Ron shot back. He fired his wand from around his shoulder. “Bombarda!” An entire section of wall exploded and collapsed just behind them, a pile of rubble now blocking the snake’s pursuit of them. Ron took Hermione by the waist and pulled her to him.
“Ronald Weasley, are you mad?” Hermione screeched.
“I love you, Hermione. Now, shut up and kiss me,” Ron ordered.
“Ron-mmmmmm!” Her protest was cut off as Ron kissed her for all he was worth.
“Mmmmmmm……” she hummed as she gave in at last and kissed him back. Her one hand brushed his face before reaching around to caress his shoulder.
Suddenly, there was a crash as the rubble behind them exploded away and Nagini appeared, fangs bared. Hermione saw the snake approach through her peripheral vision and her eyes widened. She pulled out of the kiss abruptly.
“RONALD!! RUN!!” She and Ron sprinted out of the castle, Nagini close behind. Ron fired a spell back at the snake, but missed. The lovers fell back into a pile of rubble as Nagini beared down on them. They held each other close, waiting for death to take them…
But it didn’t come. Opening their eyes, Ron and Hermione saw that the snake had been slain by Neville. Harry killed Voldemort soon after. The battle was over.
As the couple got up and dusted themselves off, Hermione turned to Ron.
“In the future, promise me one thing.”
Ron smiled. “Anything, love.”
Hermione smirked. “Never kiss me while we’re being chased by danger again. When I tell you to stop kissing me and to start running, you run. Understood?” Ron suddenly kissed her again before she could object and grinned.
