It's Not A Prank (Fred Weasley x Reader)
A request! I love Fred, thanks for the cute request!❤
You were on a crowed platform 9 and ¾ waiting for your parents to pick you up for summer holiday.
‘They’re always late, you’d think they’d be early to pick up their only daughter’ You thought to yourself.
Suddenly your good friend Angelina sauntered up to you with an odd smirk on her lips.
“Looks like Weasley’s making eyes at you”
You sighed and turned to see Fred Weasley’s eyes flick away and try to talk casually with his twin.
“I’m starting to think it isn’t a prank, (Y/N)” she said, keenly, raising her thin eyebrows at you.
“Yes, it is! I can tell, he’s alway sniggering with his brother whenever I’m around”
“But, what if it wasn’t a prank? Would you say yes then?”
You just stared at her, a knowing smile swiping across her face. “Shut up” you snapped back, causing her to giggle.
Suddenly her face brightened “What?” You asked curiously as you turned to see Fred heading your way. You turned back to her quickly.
“Please don’t leave” you whispered.
She looked pitifully at you for a moment before yelling “Oh, George. I have to hug you goodbye!” she walked toward the other Weasley twin, throwing a wink at Fred as she past him.
You groaned quite audibly. “Hello, (Y/N), looking forward to the summer?” Fred asked confidently, with a smile. “You must think I’m an idiot” you spit, looking accusingly at him.
Fred’s eyebrows scrunched suddenly “I’m sorry? I don’t know what you mean?”
You rolled your eyes “I mean, I know your fake little crush on me is some stupid prank to turn me green or dye my hair, well I’m not falling for it!” He opened and closed his mouth, obviously dumbfounded, trying to find words to say.
'He’s just shocked I figured his stupid little plan.’ you though as you turned, finally spotting your family and walked quickly away.
“See you next year” Fred waved slightly, his voice faltering on the last few words.
Suddenly he felt his brother give him a thump on the back. “You convince her yet?” George asked, wiggling his eyebrows. “Not yet” Fred said looking at you while you hugged your mother, bitting his lip “not yet.”
Your parents dropped you off at Kings Cross and you quickly grabbed your trunk and headed to Platform 9 and ¾.
Your summer was long and quite boring so you were very excited to start the new school year and see all your friends again. One particular person though, was prominent in your thoughts over your holiday.
You found yourself wishing for hours that his 'crush’ on you last year hadn’t been a prank. You though of what it’d be like to have holiday at his house, spend nights with him by the fire in the common room, make jokes with him, cuddle with him, kiss him.
This is when you stopped yourself. 'Constantly thinking about it won’t change the fact that he doesn’t like you.’ You thought as you pushed through the barrier. You looked, confused why the Hogwarts Express wasn’t on the tracks and there were scarcely any people on the platform.
“Oh, we’re just early, Dear. The Hogwarts Express hasn’t arrived yet”
You turned to see a short, ginger, motherly looking women who smiled kindly at you. “Oh” you laughed, checking your watch
“I guess I just got excited”
You dropped your trunk near a post. “What’s your name, Dear. You look familiar” the ginger witch asked politely. “(Y/N) (Y/L/N)” you said, smiling, as you shook her plump hand.
“Oh! (Y/N) (Y/L/N)! I’m Molly Weasley. You’re the girl my boy, Fred hasn’t stopped talking about all holiday!” She said cheerfully, taking your hand in both of her’s.
“So beautiful, just as he said. Good marks, too! And a prefect! The perfect young women you are!”
Your face was shocked and you stammered out thank yous whenever you could.
“Now I know Freddie doesn’t get the best marks but it’s only because he apply himself properly. But he’s a man who’d take take care of you, I tell you.” Mrs. Weasley rambled on and on about her son, not noticing the flabbergasted look on your face.
“But very handsome, too. He make a fine-”
Suddenly she was cut off by a “Mum!” You looked away from Molly to see Fred looking terrified.
“Um, Ron needs you immediately, his uh… tooth came out”
Mrs. Weasley dropped your hand and looked strangely at her son
“Ron’s already lost all his teeth”
Fred took her shoulders and guided her off
“Well, then you’d better get over there”
Fred looked back at you, his face was flushed and you saw the nervous look in his eyes.
“I’m sorry if she made you uncomfortable, you know mums”
You looked intensely at him, your jaw still dropped. You suddenly felt very flustered.
“W-was a-all that t-true?”
You stuttered. Fred bit his lip quickly “If she told you what I think she did then, um, yeah”
You’d never seen Fred like this before, his hands were trembling and he was avoiding your gaze, looking at the floor.
“Oh, well-” Fred suddenly got a burst of courage “I’m in love with you, (Y/N) and I’m sorry if I ever made it seem like a prank or something because, I do honestly feel that way and if you don’t feel the same, I understand. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about yo-”
“I haven’t been able to get you off my mind either, I’m in love with you too” you said confidently.
Fred’s eyes went wide “Really?” You stepped forward, so you were inches away from him “Really” you whispered. Fred stared into your eyes for a moment then closed the gap between you. He rested his hands on your waist and pulled you close, you put yours on his chest and slid them up to wrap around his neck. The kiss was cut short when you heard Mrs. Weasley walking back.
“I don’t know what you’re up to Fred but Ron’s teeth are fully- FREDRICK WEASLEY GET YOUR MOUTH OFF THAT POOR GIRL!” She shrieked.
Fred pulled away from you, laughing. His bright eyes looking lovingly at you
“Way to go, Freddie!” You heard George shout from a distance.
“Now I’m much more looking forward to this school year” Fred said, looking down at you. “Me too” you said, smiling as he wrapped his arm around you.
