The room was dark and quiet for the most part. Only the sounds of Neville Longbottom snoring lightly were audible in the silence. If anyone had walked into the room at that moment, they would have been under the assumption that the five bodies in the five four-poster beds were sound asleep, dreaming about Quidditch matches and such. They would be wrong. Continue reading “You’re the One that I Want” »
“I really hope Ron and Susan get over here soon, we’ve got to get going in just a little while.” Lavender said, glancing at her watch.
“I’m sure they’ll be here soon enough.” Hermione reassured her. “Besides,” she added in a low voice. “I know the only reason you’re anxious to get back is so that you and Seamus…” she let her voice trail off suggestively. Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (19. Epilogue: I Need You)” »
Ron put his hand against the door as Susan was about to open it. “Do we really have to go in there?” he asked, running his other hand up and down her arm.
Susan smiled at him. “You know we have to, Ron.”
“But I want to steal you away now.” Ron said, leaning closer to her. His hand left her arm and traced lightly across her cheek. “I don’t want to wait until later.” Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (18. Sing To Me)” »
Although the stain had come out of the ivory sheath with the help of several magic cleaning spells (and Lavender), Hermione didn’t think she’d ever be able to wear it again. She’d sadly handed it back to her mother (who didn’t know about the wine escapade) and insisted she hang it back in her closet, and that maybe Lavender would like to wear it. She literally became a zombie for the next week, not even leaving the house for work. Lavender and Susan covered her shifts without complaining. Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (17.

Lavender stared in shock as Henry finally moved across the room and gave his wife a hug. “It’s great to have you back.” He said, still in a bit of shock.
“I was lucky and was able to come back sooner than I thought.” Nicole smiled up at him. She turned to Lavender, who was still in the doorway. “Hi, I’m Nicole Bowers, you must be Lavender.” She came forward and shook her hand. Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (16. Dinner at the Potter House)” »
Susan raised her arm and knocked on the door to the Bower’s house. Lavender answered the door after a moment.
“Hi you guys!” she said, her eyes bright. She opened the door and let Susan and Ron inside. Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (15. Babysitting for the Babysitter)” »
“Hey Mum?” Hermione poked her head into the living room. “I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be around this weekend.”
“Oh?” Jane looked up at her daughter. “Where are you going?” Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (14. Making Up is Fun to Do)” »
Lavender sighed as she read the last lines of her novel. She normally didn’t read romances but Hermione had shoved this one in her hands a few days before and she’d found herself quite caught up in it.
“Good book?” Henry was leaning over her. Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (13. Conscience)” »
“Sue!” Hermione called out breathlessly as she charged up the stairs of the pizza parlour. “Susan!”
“What?” Susan asked, coming out from the kitchen. “Are you all right?” Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (12. Date Night)” »
Susan had no idea how she had gotten home that day. As she fell onto her unmade bed, the fog in her brain lifted and she realised what had just happened.
“What if I’ve lost him forever?” she whispered desperately, tears coming to her eyes and spilling down her cheeks. She put her face in her hands and sobbed for a few long moments. “Great Wizards, what am I going to do without him?” Susan’s pillow grew increasingly wet from her tears. She felt completely despondent for awhile, and her sobs gradually went down to sniffles, and finally her eyes were dry. Continue reading “Hogsmeade Pizza (11. I’ll Be Fine)” »
