you want cliffhanger??? Cliffhanger shall have


The date you picked to celebrate your union turned out to be a perfect one, cool fresh air from the country and the warmth of the Sun of early October. Newt and Jacob were outside making some company to Tom who was smoking a cigarette in the meantime you arrived.
“Tomas…” Newt broke the silence as he cracked his knuckles, trying to ease his nerves. “Do you remember the day you knew you fell in love with Sybil?”
“oh….absolutely.” He paused as he let the smoke of his cigarette vanish into the air. “She had bought this crazy dress and modeled it in front of her family. Lady Violet nearly suffers a stroke.” The three men laughed.

Newt smiled naturally, thinking of you gave him that kind of reaction.
“We were together at Hogwarts, one day she stayed for the class of caring of Magical creatures and I was there feeding the thestrals, when she came with a notebook. She looked so adorable. Her H/C hair waved with the wind and it smelled like fresh apples. I came close and told her…” He paused the story when his eyes spotted the copper brown hair of two people he knew very well: his cousin Gerard and his mother, Aunt Agather, a short lady with a long face and white teal eyes, like those of a vulture. From all the members of his family opposing to their marraige, these two were a true pain in the ass.
Jacob and Tom looked back and knew this was going to be awkward. Newt walked a few steps ahead and reached them before coming any closer to his friends.
