    “C'mon Hermione, it's just a game. ” Her childhood mate, Dan, chuckled.

    Shaking her head, the ten-year-old Hermione closed her eyes as she grasped the racket tightly. She was indeed afraid to witness the sight of her best friend hurling a tennis ball at her.

    “It's not going to kill you Hermione. Just relax!” Hermione's dad called out from the opposite side of the tennis court.

    “Here goes!” Dan served the ball at her.

    It took a split second for Hermione to feel the impact. She didn't hit the ball.

    She had hit her own nose with the tennis racket.

    ---

    “Arthur, have you seen that cookbook – Arthur, what is that?”

    “It’s called a rocket, Molly. I was just reading about this fascinating Muggle sport, tennis – “

    “Well, put it away before you hurt yourself.”

    “No, watch – I think I understand. You just toss the ball up...and swing!”

    “Arthur, the cabinet!”

    “Sorry, sorry, didn’t mean to swing that hard! Say... is that your cookbook?”

    Molly bent down to look at the book that had fallen off the top of the cabinet.

    “Strawberries and Cream,” she read. “I’ve been looking for that recipe. But really, Arthur, no more with that rocket thing.”

    “ Dad, I want to play tennis! ” Albus screamed.

    “ Mum, I want to eat strawberries and cream! ” Lily yelled.

    “ Tennis is cooler than strawberries and cream. ”

    “ No way. ”

    “ Yes. ”

    “ I don't even know why I'm arguing with you! Everyone knows food beats sports all the time. ”

    “ Just because tennis isn't a girly sport does not mean that cool people like me can't enjoy it. ”

    “ Kids, why don't we play tennis and have strawberries and cream at the same time? ” Ginny sounded exasperated.

    “ Hurray! ”

    A/N: Can you say... serial?

    * * *

    James just pushed the strawberries and cream around in his bowl. It was his favourite, and on holiday, he could have whatever he wanted for meals, but he just couldn’t eat anything. He was still thinking about earlier that morning, about what he’d thought was a brisk tennis match but had turned out to be positively nauseating.

    “Aren’t you hungry?” Mum asked.

    Turning scarlet, he mumbled incoherently.

    As if she knew what was on his mind, she said, “Sweetheart, what goes on between married people is… complicated.”

    James tried desperately to block her out, lest he become scarred for life.

    A/N: Has nothing to do with tennis

    ****

    The spoon between her lips is cold. As she pulls it away, the white, comfort taste spills onto her tongue and dribbles down her throat. It wraps her mouth in delicious warmth, coating every surface with insulating fat, until her teeth find the ripe, red flesh and the pink acid sting slices across her tongue and cheek. She chews slowly, the sun warm on her face and knees, the smell of grass adding a thin green edge to the taste of red and white.

    Her eyes open to the flickering blue. The blanket against her cheek is rough and grey.

    A/N: The most unoriginal title ever.


    “Ronald Weasley!” Hermione said sharply, as she swatted his hands away from her leg. “Some of us have work to do.”

    “But Hermione, you’ve been studying for ages.”

    “Well, yes, but…”

    “Come on. Take a break.”

    She sighed. They were studying by the lake today, enjoying the exceptionally fine weather. Except for Ron of course, who had anything but studies on his mind.

    Just as his hand began creeping up her leg again, it started to pour. She quickly gathered their books from the ground while Ron tried to hide his disappointed expression.

    “Sorry, Ron,” Hermione grinned. “Rain stopped play.”

    Title: A Diffferent Sort of Birthday
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st/2nd years - none
    A/N: Present tense what?

    ---

    A despondent Hermione gazes through her bedroom window at the torrent of rain outside. She was supposed to have had her tennis themed birthday party today – but the weather, of course, prevented it.

    She fingers the strings on her racket, trying not to feel too disappointed, when a sudden movement outside draws her gaze. With a start, she realises that a bird is perched on her windowsill – a bedraggled owl, of all things. After a moment’s hesitation, Hermione opens the latch and pulls the poor thing inside – to discover a letter attached to its leg that is, miraculously, perfectly dry.
