It's always been like that Ron did not respond, but turned his face away from Harry and wiped his nose noisily on his sleeveHarry got to his feet again and walked to where Ron's enormous rucksack lay yards away, discarded as Ron had run toward the pool to save Harry from drowningHe hoisted it onto his own back and walked back to Ron, who clambered to his feet as Harry approached, eyes bloodshot but otherwise composed"I'm sorry," he said in a thick voiceI know I was a \a150\a150 a \a150\a150" He looked around at the darkness, as if hoping a bad enough word would swoop down upon him and claim him"You've sort of made up for it tonight," said HarryFinishing off the Horcrux "That makes me sound a lot cooler than I was," Ron mumbled"Stuff like that always sounds cooler than it really was" said Harry"I've been trying to tell you that for years Simultaneously they walked forward and hugged, Harry gripping the still-sopping back of Ron's jacket"And now," said Harry as they broke apart, "all we've got to do is find that tent again But it was not difficultThough the walk through the dark forest with the doe had seemed lengthy, white prada bag with Ron by his side, the journey back seemed to take a surprisingly short timeHarry could not wait to wake Hermione, and it was with quickening excitement that he entered the tent, Ron lagging a little behind himIt was gloriously warm after the pool and the forest, the only illumination the bluebell flames still shimmering in a bowl on the floorHermione was fast asleep, curled up under her blankets, and did not move until Harry had said her name several times"\iHermione!\i" She stirred, then sat up quickly, pushing her hair out of her face"What's wrong? Harry? Are you all right?" "It's okay, everything's fineMore than fine, I'm greatThere's someone here "What do you mean? Who \a150\a150?" She saw Ron, who stood there holding the sword and dripping onto the threadbare carpetHarry backed into a shadowy corner, slipped off Ron's rucksack, and attempted to blend in with the canvasHermione slid out of her bunk and moved like a sleepwalker toward Ron, her eyes upon his pale faceShe stopped right in front of him, her lips slightly parted, her eyes wideRon gave a weak hopeful smile and half raised his armsHermione launched omega geneve herself forward and started punching every inch of him that she could reach"Ouch \a150\a150 ow \a150\a150 gerroff! What the \a150\a150? Hermione \a150\a150 OW!" "You \a150\a150 complete \a150\a150 \iarse\i \a150\a150 Ronald \a150\a150 Weasley!" She punctuated every word with a blow: Ron backed away, shielding his head as Hermione advanced"You \a150\a150 crawl \a150\a150 back \a150\a150 here \a150\a150 after \a150\a150 weeks \a150\a150 and \a150\a150 weeks \a150\a150 oh, \iwhere's my wand\i?" She looked as though ready to wrestle it out of Harry's hands and he reacted instinctively"\iProtego!\i" The invisible shield erupted between Ron and HermioneThe force of it knocked her backward onto the floorSpitting hair out of her mouth, she lept up again"Hermione!" said Harry"Calm \a150\a150" "I will not calm down!" she screamedNever before had he seen her lose control like this
