"You are such a rude, insensitive arse, Ronald!"
"Well I wouldn't be so rude if you weren't so damn bossy and stuck-up all the time!"
"Oh, now I'm stuck-up?!"
"Yes, yes you are!"
"Just because I'm not as smart as you doesn't mean you can be so condescending when I don't know something!"
"Well, if you just tried to put your nose down in a book from time to time, maybe you wouldn't be so surprised that I know more stuff than you do!"
"How is stating the mere truth condescending?!"
"Well, let me think... Oh well! I don't know! You tell me!"
"Urghhh... I swear Ronald, sometimes, I would gladly just - "
"Yes? YES? What would you GLADLY do, Hermione?!"
"GUYS. STOP IT NOW."
Hermione, who had been furiously waving her arms around the whole time, just froze into place, and Ron, whose fists looked like they were going to explode from all the clenching, slowly relaxed. Harry, who had been trying to read the Halfblood Prince's potions book as a way of trying to ignore his two friends was now staring at them, his eyes dark with anger.
"Honestly! Will you just - do something about this already?!"
Hermione looked down at her hands and knotted her fingers together, while Ron plunged his own hands down in his pockets, and his lips twitched the way they did when he felt embarassed.
"I - I don't know what's gotten over me, Hermione... ," Ron said, his voice shaking.
"I know, Ron, " Hermione murmured gently.
Harry watched as they hugged awkwardly.
Well, this might just get somewhere he thought, and went back to his book.
