"Jaws?" Harry asked holding up the VSH tape in his hand. "I thought you were scared of sharks. Are you sure you want to watch this?"
Hermione sighed. "It's not a matter of wanting to see it, but that I have to see it." His skeptical look caused her to roll her eyes. "I need to overcome this if we are still planning on taking that cruise to the Caribbean for our Honeymoon."
"Ah, yeah I could see where that could be a problem." Harry smirked as he inserted the tape into their VCR player.
Harry draped the red and gold crochet throw, which Hermione's mother had crafted during Hermione's first year at Hogwarts, over them both. The throw had seen its fair share of use over the following years, but it just made it that more special in his opinion. After all, he had no handmade blankets or other such special familial memorabilia from his parents.
Hermione's gentle kissed pulled him out of his inner musings. "Ready?" she whispered as she held the remote. Her slender fingers posed over the play button.
"Ready." He grinned and shuffled closer to his longtime friend and fiancé.
"Lights. Camera. Action." She announced switching off the lights followed by the movie. She could do this, she told herself as she enjoyed the sensation of snuggling into her lover's warm embrace.
She had been wrong. She couldn't do this.
Hermione screamed and threw the throw over her head. They were only a few minutes in, and only at the first sighting of the monstrous shark. Harry congratulated himself for keeping his cool and not laughing at his lover's antics.
"Don't say a word. Not a single word." Hermione warned after she had emerged back from the safety of the blanket.
"Don't worry. I would like to live." He joked. Merriment alit in his green eyes. Hermione huffed and playfully swiped at his arm before gathering the throw back to her. He cocked one eyebrow and grinned before caressing her check tenderly. "It's okay. It's only a movie, Mione. I'm here."
"My hero," she whispered softly against his lips, "What would I ever do without you."
"Let's never find out," he replied, capturing her lips with his. The movie played on in the background forgotten.
