On the train, Harry, Ron, and Hermione got a room to themselves, while Cho decided to take some time and catch up with her old friends in another compartment. The four of them all talked about their year together as the train went along, taking them home.
“Hey Hermione,” said Ron, looking like he had suddenly thought of something. “Whatever happened to Krum? Remember? At the beginning of the year you said you two weren’t seeing each other anymore, and you wouldn’t tell us why…. Well… now will you tell us?”
Hermione put a smile on, and turned slightly red.
“Oh fine,” she said. “Well, everything was going great at his house… we were having lots of fun. I guess he thought we were having enough fun together to… well….”
“What?” asked Ron and Harry together.
“To… get married.”
Harry and Ron burst out into uncontrollable laughter.
“He asked you to marry him?” coughed Ron, several minutes later, sitting up and trying to recover from his laughing fit.
“Yes he did, and I thought that was just too much of him. I didn’t want to be with someone who was THAT spontaneous…. So, I left him.”
“Wow Hermione,” said Harry. “Just… wow…”
The rest of the trip went along that way, each of them remembering their fifth year, the good and the bad, the funny and the terrible. Finally, they arrived at Platform 9 ¾ , and they all got off.
“See you Harry!” said Hermione, running off to see her parents.
“See you later Hermione!” yelled Harry back.
“Goodbye Harry,” said Cho.
“Goodbye Cho,” said Harry, giving her a goodbye kiss as she went off to go home with her parents.
“Harry,” asked Ron, “are you sure you wouldn’t rather come home with us for the holidays?”
“Maybe later, Ron,” said Harry, “but first, I want to have some fun…. The Dursleys don’t know that Dudley’s a wizard… that will be a fun surprise.”
