1. Wouldn’t be alive without her

A/N: The chapters are not chronological, they’re just random memories of my favourite couple. Hope you enjoy them as much as they enjoyed living them! Thank you for reading (and commenting)!


“Mmm… I missed being here.” Harry took his eyes off of the castle in front of him and turned to the young woman walking beside him. They were walking at the shore of the Great Lake and a gentle breeze was sweeping through their hair.

“Yeah, me too.” They had decided to visit their old school before the new semester began. “It’s nice being back here and not having to worry about the classes.” Hermione laughed.

“Like you ever worried about them in the first place.” She said, lightly bumping her shoulder against his.

“Hey! Sorry if I had other minor problems to worry about other than my classes, like a dark lord trying to kill me.” He said with a fake hurt voice. Hermione halted at her step. When Harry realised she wasn’t at his side anymore, he turned back. “I was just joking, Mione.” Hermione sighed and nodded her head.

“I know, love. It’s just tough. Being back here and trying not to think about the war.” Harry walked the few steps towards her and pulled her into a hug.

“Let’s sit a little.” He took her hand and pulled her under a big oak tree. They rested their backs against the trunk of the tree. It was a nice afternoon, the sun was descending over the lake, making the water look like it was burning. Harry took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. “I was really nervous about coming back here, you know? I was afraid that all I would remember would be the war and those we’ve lost.” Hermione nodded and without saying a word rested her head against his shoulder. “But thank God, it didn’t happen. When I look at the castle, all I see is Hogwarts, my home. I mean my home before you.” Harry felt Hermione’s smile against his shirt. “And I was afraid that when we came back, all of my good memories would be under the shadow of the bad ones. But that didn’t happen, either. We have good memories in every single step of this place. I met everyone I love due to this place. I met you here. And nothing can cast a shadow over that, not even the war.”

“Oh, Harry.” Hermione breathed out. “You don’t know how right you are. I feel the same way. This is where we became friends. You and Ron, you two changed my life, especially you.”

“I hope in a good way.” Harry said, grinning. Hermione laughed lightly.

“Yeah, in the best way possible.” Harry smiled and pulled her closer.

“You changed my life, too. After all, you are the reason I’m alive today.”

“Harry-”

“No, Hermione. Don’t ‘Harry’ me. You know very well that you saved my arse more times than I could count. You are the reason we are all alive today.”

“Well, you saved my life, too. So I guess we’re even.” Harry shook his head.

“No, we will never be even. You were beside me when no one else was. I will always owe you.”

“You don’t owe me anything, Harry. I didn’t do those things for you to feel like you owe me. I did them because I love you. Plus, you saved my life first.”

“If you’re talking about me defeating Voldemort when I was just a baby, you know very well it was my mum’s spell that did the job.” Hermione shook her head which was still resting on his shoulder.

“No, I’m talking about the troll.”

“But it wasn’t just me that night, Ron was there, too.” Hermione lifted her head from its place and locked her chocolate brown eyes with her boyfriend’s emerald green ones.

“I know it was you who remembered me that night, Harry. Ron told me. While everyone was busy trying to save their lives, you remembered me and came to my help. I… I really wouldn’t be alive if it wasn’t for you. Thank you.” Hermione reached up and kissed his lips lightly. Harry smiled.

“Mmm, I liked this way of saying thank you. Maybe I should thank you for every single time you saved my life, what do you think?” Hermione laughed lightly and kissed him again.

“I wouldn’t mind that kind of thanking I guess.” Harry grinned his lopsided grin and started pushing his girlfriend gently to the ground. But right as he leaned in to kiss her lips, Hermione put her hand on his mouth, stopping him. “But seriously, Harry. Don’t ever think you owe me anything. If you really like to think that I saved your life, think as if you saved your own life by saving me.” Harry kissed her palm before taking it away from his lips.

“You’re right, Hermione, I saved my life. Because you are my life.” Hermione’s eyes widened and immediately welled up with tears.

“Oh, Harry. I love you so much.” Harry smiled and wiped away her tears. “Now, stop trying to make me cry and start thanking me.”

“Whatever you want, love.” Harry grinned and leaned down to thank the love of his life for every single time she saved his arse.
