Falling in love is like a car crash.
It takes two to happen at the right place, at the right time.
And suddenly you wonder how this possibly happened?
If only I didn’t take the long way home.
If only I wasn’t driving 71 mph instead of 70.
If only I didn’t take that extra minute to find the right song to play on the radio.
Could all this been avoided?
That’s how falling in love can be.
You find someone without actually looking.
You crash into them and all of a sudden, you realize every single choice you made in your entire life, whether bad or good, led up to this moment.
This moment where the love of your life is standing right in front of you.
And as you look into their eyes, everything just makes sense.
as you had found out what Valentine’s Day was all about, you had hated it. Mostly
because your older sister had a boyfriend and was all lovey-dovey on this day
but you had no one. However, this year it was different. Only some weeks ago
you had started dating your classmate George Weasley. Now you somehow
understood what would be so special about that day, having a boyfriend made it
suddenly appear as very important.
year was a special Valentine’s Day in Hogwarts. Professor decorated the Great
Hall and wore fitting pink robes. You didn’t find it lovely because it was just
too much. And you weren’t the only one who thought that. Also the other
professors weren’t fond of Lockhart’s idea, probably mostly because he
suggested that they could teach you things like love potions or similar charms
today. You, as well as others buried your face in your hands and whished the
day would just be over, although you had waited for it quite some time now.
proved to be even worse than you thought that morning. Because Lockhart also
had dwarfs that were delivering Valentines to students, even in your classes. But
it seemed as if these creatures were forced to do this rather than by free will
since they did not look very pleased in their costumes. You pitied them. That,
however, changed when after the lunchbreak one of the dwarves hurried towards
you before you got to your first class in the afternoon.
you breathed as you heard him call your name. Of course, a rather large group
of students was gathering around you immediately, eager to hear your message.
But you decided to ignore all of it and tried to run away, but unfortunately
both of the Weasley twins stopped you, pushing you back in the middle. “You’re
dead, Weasley! Both of you!” you growled at your boyfriend and his brother.
“And if that message is from either of you, you will rue this day!” For a
second you considered covering your ears but somehow you also were a little
excited for the Valentine. If it hadn’t been for the others surrounding you,
you might have even found it cute. The only good thing was that if the message
would turn out to be someone else’s than George’s he’d most likely make the
dwarf shut up. Luckily, the message the dwarf was about to deliver to you wasn’t
a singing but a poem.
“(Y/N), you are so beautiful
Thanks for being with be despite I’m a numbskull
Darling, you are so clever
I won’t forget you ever
I wish you a happy Valentine’s Day
because without you I’m astray
If only you had become my girlfriend before
But I’m happy if you’re with me forevermore
When I’m without you I feel like I have the flu
because (Y/N) I really, really love you!”
else you started to giggle and despite it wasn’t very good poetry, you found it
quite cute. But as it seemed, the dwarf wasn’t finished.
“I admit, the poem wasn’t very good
But I hope I’m not misunderstood”
And then, the little creature took its
leave. And you too started to move and walked over to the twins, smacking
George in the face, before pulling him into a kiss. Now most of the others
started going away as well, but Fred stayed of course.

Magic” you kissed his cheek “But I would have expected a little more. I mean
some rhymes really are… questionable.” Fred snorted with laughter.
should’ve seen the first drafts. If I hadn’t stepped in, one line would have
been: I fell in love with you and I don’t know
Maybe because don’t look like a cow” You buried your face in your hands and
then turned to your boyfriend.
Because I’m not cow?”

me think… now…. slow… show… know. And there are many more” you grinned and
hugged him tight “Well, thank you anyway. It was cute, although that proves you’re
the worst poet ever. And if you were a good or a cheesy one, you wouldn’t be my
George anymore. Thus I wouldn’t love you.”
“one” Fred grunted “Who’s being cheesy now?”

didn’t like to hear that because he left as well. George and you glanced after

brother. But this time a really embarrassing one. At least I know some very bad
