An Honest Man

Category: Missing Scene

Notes: Just a short little deal that popped into my head. Nothing special.

Ron strolled in and flopped onto the couch, nodding a thanks as Ash indicated the refreshments tray on the table. “I’ve a bone to pick with you.”

Ash raised a brow. “What might that be, pray tell?”

“I want to know when you’re going to make an honest man out of my best mate,” Ron said a bit sternly.

Ash blinked a few times in surprise. “I’m sorry?”

Ron scowled and snatched up a bottle of butterbeer. “Don’t you think you ought to bond with him?”

“We are bonded, Ron.”

“Yes, I know. I’m not stupid. I still think you ought to marry him. It would indicate a willingness to be with him above and beyond what fate had in store for you two, and Haze is too damn oblivious to have even thought of looking into tradition and all that rot.”

Ash snapped his mouth shut, slightly surprised that it had dropped open, and considered. A suspicious glance was given to his companion; since when was Ron that openly perceptive?

“Don’t look at me like that,” Ron said, looking somewhat affronted. “I’m not completely hopeless, I’ll have you know. I don’t always need people like Hermione whispering the right things to say in my ear, or even having to point stuff out.”

Ash cleared his throat uncomfortably, not at all willing to comment directly on the accusation. “I see. Well, since you seem to have given this a lot of thought, have you any suggestions?”
