With Neville in the Boys Dormitory
Boys Dormitories, 11:44pm
The sounds of the party were still very much audible as you reached the boys dormitory. You didn’t often come here; in fact, the last time was the previous year, when you’d helped Neville prepare for the Yule Ball.
‘You alright?’ You said, quietly. You could see the back of Neville only, sitting on his bed.
‘Yeah.’ This sounded like the biggest “no” you’d ever heard. You walked over to where he was sitting, leaning against the wooden bedpost.
‘Don’t tell porkies.’ Neville looked up at you, giving the smallest smile.
‘Didn’t fancy the party. Bit behind on Herbology. Sprout’s got me doing extra seeing as I’m top of the class and stuff.’
‘No need to show off.’ You said jokingly, ‘Why’s she making you do more if you’re top of the class?’
‘Keep me involved, ‘pparently.’
‘What a load of bollocks.’ You said quietly, and Neville chuckled. ‘Well, look - it’s Saturday tomorrow; I’ll go down with you to the greenhouses and help you sort out the plants, or whatever needs doing.’
‘You’ll do that ... with me?’ Neville asked, his pupils large and a faint smile appearing once more.
‘’Course.’ Neville practically beamed. He was now sitting up straight. You gave him a friendly smile and got up, making your way towards the door, before turning to add, ‘Nice pyjamas, by the way.’
He looked down at his matching blue striped pyjamas, and his face flushed red. You smirked, chuckled, and made your way across to the girls dormitory.
‘You’re not going to bed now, are you?’ You heard a voice say. Fred and George were stood together on the stairs, both clutching a butterbeer.
‘Ooh!’ You acted offended, clasping a hand over your mouth.
‘Come on, one more.’
‘Goodnight.’ You smiled.
‘Come and have a drink with the big boys.’ They said at the same time.
‘Bugger off.’ You waved your hands at them to shoo them away, but they didn’t move.
‘Didn’t have this problem at Grimmauld, did you?’ Fred said, smirking.
‘Couldn’t tear you away from the party.’ George continued.
‘Almost like you were trying to impress a certain Professor ... ?’ Both of them were grinning widely, and you gave them a final mischievous smile before entering the girls dormitory.
