I hugged my books to my chest and hurried along the halls, jumping out of the way of people who were headed in the opposite direction. Suddenly, I heard my name and slowed down.
“Oi, Neville, there goes y/n, your girlfriend– Oh wait, she isn’t his girlfriend, he just wishes every day to his little fairy godmother that she will be soon!” Seamus Finnigan said this just loud enough so that I could hear. My cheeks colored and I heard Neville reply.
“Hey, Seamus, just what do you think you’re doing? Shut the bloody hell up!”
I turned my head slightly and my eyes met with Neville’s. He licked his lips nervously and smiled at me, his eyes sparkling. I smiled back and Dean Thomas and Seamus cackled evilly.
I turned around and continued on my way, my face hot, but with Neville on my mind.
