“I’ve danced with you at every party for the last year- can I finally learn your name?”

Hermione thought it was ‘silly’. Now that she was a mum, Hermione often used the word ‘silly’ to replace ‘that’s a truly fucking terrible idea, Harry’. So when Harry told her that he had yet again, danced with a mystery man at a Ministry Gala, she had rolled her eyes and told him, “Well that was silly, wasn’t it.”
Yes, it was silly for Harry to infatuate himself with an Unspeakable, but he couldn’t help it. For the last year, Harry had kept his eye on the same disguised Unspeakable at every Ministry event he’d been forced to attend. Or at least, he hoped it was the same Unspeakable. Hermione had explained to him that the Unspeakables always wore black robes, with a silver trim and a crimson lined square pocket to identify themselves as members of the ministry. Other than that, their entire appearances changed from party to party.
Hence why Hermione believed his small crush to be ‘silly’. He recalled what she’d said after the first few dances.
