He made it!!!
Harry finally made it all the way to The Burrow. It looked like the Weasleys and Hermione were having Sunday lunch on the back picnic table. As he got closer, Harry landed just about in the middle of the table with very little damage to all the settings. He carefully walked over and basically sat in front of Hermione.
Nobody really knew what to say. Except the twins, of course.
“New boyfriend you got there? Ron has some competition we see.”
There were a few laughs and a few words. But one word was “Harry.” With that, Harry started jumping up and down, making a real scene. When he settled down, he went back to sitting in front of Hermione.
A little more fun was had but the next three times Harry’s name was mentioned, he’d move over to the person who said it, caused a minor uproar, and then went back to Hermione.
However, it was Bill who began to see the pattern.
“Hold it down for a minute. I think I see what’s happening.” Bill said above everybody.
“I am Bill, that is Hermione, and you are Harry.” That got the reaction he expected. “Ok, she is Ginny, you are not Fred, but you are Harry.” The same reaction.
“Ok, one more time.” This time everybody was listening. “If you are Harry, go sit by Ron.” And that’s exactly what Harry did.
Hermione finally caught on. “Oh, my! I think I’ll floo Professor McGonagall. We may need her expertise.”
