Harry was sitting on the couch in his private common room with his feet on the foot rest after dinner, staring at the warm fire dancing around. Hermione had her head on his lap, reading a book to study, her feet on the other end of the couch. Harry was stroking her hair lightly. Hermione still couldn't concentrate properly, however. She was worried what Ron said wasn't true and she didn't know what he was doing with Lavender. She developed an irritating headache from all her thoughts.

Harry looked down at her for a while, she looked up at him for a moment with a weak smile. She sighed as she began massaging her forehead.

"Are you alright?" He asked tenderly.

"Not really." She began. "My head hurts."

Harry pulled her hands away gently.

"Don't worry," he spoke, "I'll do it."

He began massaging her lovingly, giving her a quick kiss on the cheek.

Hermione woke up to be still the same position as before. Harry hovered his head over her and smiled.

"You're awake!" He expressed.

Hermione smiled. "How long was I asleep."

"Well," Harry began. "It was around nine when you went to sleep and now it's nearly eleven so a couple of hours."

"Thank you for that massage." Hermione said, grinning with gratitude. "I must've fallen asleep."

She giggled with joy. Harry adored her beautiful laugh she gave, making him feel bright and happy. Before he knew it, her hands reached for the back of his neck and pulled him down to kiss him passionately. Harry began kissing her back after being very surprised.

Hermione stood up and Harry did afterwards, still locked onto her lips. He put his arms around her waist and felt her curves. Hermione felt his hand reach for her butt and she giggled as they kissed. She began zipping down his pants as she stopped giggling, giving of a convincing smile. Harry let go of the kiss and pulled his pants down quickly as Hermione ripped of his shirt. He bit his lip anxiously as Hermione pulled her shirt over her arms and threw it to the ground. She began kissing him devotedly once more. Harry pulled down her skirt slowly as he still had his lips against hers. He ran his hands up her back and undid her bra, dropping it behind her. He took her to the common room and locked the door behind him before Hermione pulled him into bed. He rested his head against his pillow, looking deep into Hermione's eyes. He rested his hands on her new pregnant belly and smiled at it. He lent in, giving her a kiss before she rolled over. He put his arms around her waist.

"I love you." He whispered.

"I love you too." She whispered back before drifting into a deep sleep.

> Around A Month Later <

Hermione had been in a bad mood all day. She seemed moody and agitated. She figured it was just mood swings from the pregnancy. She kept on having sharp cramps in her stomach that caused her grief, so she figured she'd have a rest in the common room while Harry enjoyed his free period with his friends. He didn't want to leave Hermione alone but she insisted, she wanted time alone. So he hanged out with Ginny and Ron close to the common room so he could keep an eye on her.

She was reading Hogwarts: A History when she felt a horrible, dreadful, extremely unsettling pain her stomach. She wrapped her hands around her lower stomach as she cried in pain. She screamed Harry's name but no one came. Seconds later, Harry came running in with Ginny and Ron not far behind.

"What's wrong?" Harry asked frantically.

Hermione couldn't even speak she was in so much pain.

"What do we do?" Ron questioned in panic.

Harry picked her up and ran as fast as he could out the door to Madam Pomfrey. Ron and Ginny tagged alone, supper concerned for Hermione.

"Madam Pomfrey, help!" Harry cried as he lay Hermione on one of the hospital beds.

Madam Pomfrey came rushing over, observing Hermione worriedly. Hermione seemed to have calmed down a bit but she still looked like she was in terrible pain. All the colour disappeared from her cheeks, leaving her pale as a ghost.

"Hermione calm down, relax." She spoke calmly to her.

Harry looked nervously, tears filling his eyes.

"It's best you three go." She explained to the three.

"No." Harry expressed. "I wanna stay with her."

"I'm sorry but you can't." She explained. "All she needs is some space to be able to rest."

The three all took one last glance at Hermione and walked away with sorrow, tears in all of their eyes.
