Fun and Fancy Free || Megiam
Liam waited on the couch, already dressed, in his coat, and ready. He’d picked out a heavier coat than he would have liked to wear during March, but it was still too cold out to just wear his sweater. Meg said she’d be down in two minutes… and it definitely was longer than that. He wanted to go up and get her, pick her up and carry her down the stairs over his shoulder. That would have been a hilarious sight to see, if it weren’t for the stupid charm on the stairs! Why was it that the girls were allowed in the boys’ rooms, but boys weren’t allowed in the girls’ rooms? He didn’t understand the double standard and so he sat there on the couch, head resting on top of the backrest, staring at the common room ceiling.
It’d been two days since she’d spent the night in his room with him, and one day since he’d helped Jez get back here after her incident. He hadn’t seen her since then and he wondered if she was okay. She’d been so shaken up that night, and so had he. He hadn’t told Meg about it yet, and he wondered if he needed to. I mean, it wasn’t like he cheated on her. All he did was pick Jezebel up and carry her into the common room. But it was Jezebel, and after that night in the kitchen, Liam had never talked about her in front of Meg. He wasn’t sure how Meg felt about her, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to know. But then again, Meg probably had a right to know about what happened… but how would he tell her?
He rolled his eyes, sighed and lifted his head up just in time to see Meg coming down the stairs. He hopped off the couch, happy and relieved to see her. And he made a serious face. “It’s about time, Princess,” he said referring to her taking so long. “By the time we get there, Honeydukes will be sold out of everything!” he threw his hands in the air for dramatic affect. He smiled and then offered his hand for her to take. “Ready, mademoiselle?”
