I would love to hear your headcanons for Percy and Audrey!!

this is for the @hprarepairnet trope challenge! this is for the “caught in the rain” trope from this list.

  • percy had never been friends with muggle before.
  • his father loved them, and well, percy was far from prejudiced.
  • meeting audrey at a muggle book shop was the best thing that had happened to him in years.
  • and it was really the only thing that was helping him get over his guilt and the loss of his brother.
  • he would meet audrey every day after she got off her shift.
  • she would always be wearing a fleece sweater and dark wash jeans, and today, her sweater of choice was light pink.
  • he thought it looked great against her skin and dark hair. the thought made his cheeks flush.
  • she smiled as she approached him and tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.
  • he caught sight of her favorite silver hoop earrings.
  • “i didn’t know if you would show up,” she confessed.
  • “why wouldn’t i?” he asked perplexed, “i come every day.”
  • they started to walk side by side, and percy had to dodge a young child who was racing by on a bike.
  • “there’s supposed to a huge storm,” she explained, “i figured you wouldn’t want to get wet.”
  • “i wouldn’t stand you up like that. and besides, if it starts raining, we can go and do something else.”
  • he glanced down at her and noticed she had a shy smile on her face, but he did not comment on it or ask why. 
  • the thing he loved most about audrey was that they could walk in silence with no expectations. it was a great way for him to relax and clear his mind. 
  • after a few minutes of walking in silence, it started to pour down rain.
  • they were soaked instantly.
  • percy attempted to wipe off his glasses on his sleeve, but it smeared the water more. 
  • audrey just laughed and lifted her hands in the air.
  • she started to twirl, and he watched as her hair started to stick to her face.
  • “we should probably find shelter,” he suggested, “we don’t want to get sick.”
  • this made her roll her eyes.
  • “isn’t this fun, though?” she asked him genuinely, “i find it refreshing.”
  • and before he knew it, she was running.
  • he started to run, too.
  • and for the first time in a long time, percy laughed.
  • he felt joyful; he felt free.
  • they stopped running once they reached a bridge, and they went underneath it for shelter.
  • percy was still laughing, but audrey was out of breath.
  • “this is the first time i have truly heard you laugh,” she told him, “it might be my new favorite sound.”
  • percy smiled and leaned up against the wall, “is that so?”
  • she tucked hair behind both her ears and took a step closer to him.
  • she was so close that he could feel her hot breath against his wet skin.
  • his breath caught in his throat.
  • “will you kiss me?” she asked him.
  • he took a deep breath and cupped her cheek with his left hand.
  • “yeah,” he said, “i think i will.”
  • and as soon as their lips met, the rain ceased.
