You silently sent a spell towards your boyfriend, the red streaking through the air towards him. He waved his wand, deflecting it easily and sending a golden spark towards you. Sneaky bastard! That’s not the spell Professor Flitwick told you all to practice! You blocked it at the last second, the sparks erupting and diffusing around your shield. You stand up straight and look to your opponent. His dark hair is pulled back into a low bun, the red of his robes making his blue eyes pop more than they already did. His smile consumed his face. No feature was untouched by the bright beam you had earned from him.
“You cheater! That’s not what we’re practicing! Why are you smiling at me like that?”
His mouth fell into a lopsided grin, one that stopped your heart every time you saw it. He walked closer to you, swagger evident in every step. He was always so cocky in front of his Gryffindor friends. “You’re getting better, sweetheart.”
“Right, like I was terrible to begin with.” You shoot back. His smile faltered slightly. “Are you scared I’m gonna beat you, Barnes?” He looked nervous for half a second before puffing his chest slightly as a challenge. You saw right through it. You knew the inner workings of this man. “Oh, gosh, you are! Oh, babe, don’t worry, I’ll go easy on you.” You wink and smile when his cheeks turn a cute rosy color.
“Oh my god, stop.” Sam pleads from his place beside you. “I can’t handle it! You’re so fucking adorable!” Sam bats his eyes at Bucky making you laugh. Natasha used her partner’s distraction to her advantage and knocked him over with her spell.
You’re doubled over laughing before running over to high five your friend. “Nice one, Tash!” You look to your boyfriend who still looks disgruntled, and make your way to him. You roll onto your toes to press a kiss to his cheek. “My big baby lion,” you coo sweetly, causing his cheeks to redden. “You know I’m just kidding, right?”
He simply takes in your features before nodding and kissing your forehead. “How the hell did I end up with a Hufflepuff?” he asks as you back up into your original defensive position.
“‘Cause I badgered you into it.” You wink.
“Oh, God.” He facepalms as you send a spell at him, knocking him back on his ass.
