Things had gone awfully wrong. In an effort to improve Ron’s Quidditch and possibly mend his relationship with Hermione, Harry pretend to have slipped Ron some Felix Felicis, before the match between Gryffindor and Slytherin. Feeling lucky, Ron went on to save everything the Slytherin chasers threw at him, and Gryffindor hammered Slytherin. However, after the match, Harry’s clever plan blew up in his face. Ron accused Hermione of not having faith in his Quidditch abilities, because she thought he really had taken lucky potion. Enraged by the fact that Ginny told him that Hermione once kissed Viktor Krum, Ron kissed Lavnder Brown at the victory party, hurting Hermione’s feelings even more.

Hermione was crying and Harry didn’t knew what to do. The situation even worsened when Ron and Lavender came out of the Tower. It ended with Hermione chasing Ron away with magical birds. Ron and Hermione had been fighting before but now things seemed to be permanently broken
