So, I tried loves. My mom is still in the ICU but she is getting better. I hope to update more this coming month. ALSO. I have a comic con coming near me and TOM FELTON is gonna be there. So stoked! Anyways, enjoy.
“Now just to warn you, my brother is going to be there,” Newt explained as he and you were walking up the steps to his family’s house
“and he’s very, well let’s just say persistent” you stop and stare at your Hufflepuff friend.
“Newt, If I can handle some crazy magizoologist who risks his life every day and gives me Anxiety everytime he steps out of the apartment, I’m sure I can manage some egoistic man” you reply.
Newt smiles at you and turns around. Newt walks up to the door and knocks. You noticed how tense he was and so you grab his hand to try to calm him down.
It was a platonic thing you did but if you were honest, you wanted to do so much more than just hold hands. It was no secret that you had feelings for your best friend.
Newt however, was too oblivious to notice anything. Or maybe he was just too caught up in his own feelings to notice yours. Newt was about to pull his hand away when the door opened.
“Newton! so great to see you. I haven’t heard from you in ages,” his mother stood in front of the two of you, wide smile and warm demeanor.
“Come in, and you must be Y/n” she says turning towards you.
“it’s lovely to meet you Mrs. Scamander” you say politely.
“It’s nice to meet you too” she replies.
“Please, sit down and make yourself comfortable” she calls walking into another room.
She returns with Newt’s dad next to her.
“Nice to meet you Mr. Scamander” you say holding out your hand.
His dad shook it and sat down across from you and Newt. You and his dad strike up a small conversation when a new presence enters the room.
“Y/n, I would like you to meet Theseus, my brother” Newt says with a hint of annoyance in his voice.
You stood up and walked over to him.
“Lovely to meet you Theseus” you say politly.
“It’s my pleasure Y/n, my brother never said how stunning you are” Theseus says flashing a bright smile. You smile back, not wanting to be rude. Unfortunately, you don’t notice Newts jaw clenching.
“I’d love to get to know you better Y/n” Theseus says. He puts his hand on your arm and leaves it there a bit too long. You give him an awkward smile before moving away from him.
“Um, sure” you reply. You turn around and look at Newt. He is looking at the ground and clenching his hands.
“Newt, would you like to come with us?” you ask, hoping he would say yes.
“Oh I’m sure my brother would be fine on his own. Maybe he can go visit the hippogriffs” Theseus cuts in before Newt even opens his mouth.
Theseus takes you hand and leads you outside. Newt is boiling with rage at this point. How dare his brother comes and steals you away, looking at you like nothing but an object.
Newt stomps his way over to the counter and pours some firewhiskey. He chugs it all and stares with discontent at the door.
“Newt, you’re going to explode the door if you keep looking at it that way”. Newt turns around and sees his mother.
“Mum!” Newt yelps in surprise.
“Newt, would you like to visit the hippogriffs. They always did make you feel better when you were a kid” She says.
She looks at her son with concern. She always knew that Newt felt inadequate to his brother. She loves both her sons equally but couldn’t help but hurt for Newt.
“I guess” Newt mumbles.
He walks out to the enclosures and sees some hippogriffs.
“Hello there lovelies. It’s me Newt. I’ve missed you” Newt coos.
He takes time brushing and feeding each one. He feels at home, in his element. he almost forgets why he was upset.
He walks back into his house covered in feathers and some dirt. He has a dopey little smile on his face. He walks over to his mother and hugs her.
“Thank you mum, this is exactly what I needed” he whispers.
“Hey, Y/n I know we just met but, I am entranced by your beauty. Would you like to go to dinner sometime?” Theseus asks. Newt’s face falls and his anger returns. Before you could answer Newt walks over to you.
“Theseus. Can I speak to you. Please.” Newt says dangerously low. He practically drags Theseus from the couch to the hallway. You follow them but stay behind the wall.
“What’s your problem little bro?” Theseus asks.
“My problem is that you always take everything I love away” Newt growls.
“Really Newt? Still so childish. Thought you would have learned. You take what you want” Theseus scoffs back. You begin to turn a crimson red from anger and embarrassment.
“Theseus you have known about my crush on Y/n for years now! How dare you come in and try to charm you way into a date only to break their heart” Newt practically yells.
You peak your head around the corner and see Newt seething with rage and his hand clenched. Ready to punch.
“Newt! Don’t hurt him” you squeak out. Newt whips around and stares in horror.
“Y-Y/N! I um, I can explain um” Newt begins.
“Newt…” you say softly.
Before you could say anything else Newt bolts. He runs out the back door towards the hippogriffs. You quickly chase after him. You take a step bback when you enter the hippogriff barn.
It was so, well, so Newt. It was outdoories but had a sense of comfort. Hell it even looked like Newt’s case. You hear mumbling come from one of the stables.
You slowly walk over, careful not to disturb any of the hippogriffs. You look in and see Newt sitting next to a baby and its mom. He is holding the baby and brushing its feathers.
“Hey” you say.
Newt looks up and so does the mother. You bow and keep eye contact with the mom. It soon bows back and lets you closer.
“Newt, why did you run out on me?” you ask, staring at the baby.
“Because i made a complete fool out of myself” Newt murmurs.
“No, you didn’t Newt” you tell him. You two sit in silence for a bit. The baby hops towards you and you stroke its back.
“Did you mean what you said? That you love me?” you ask breaking the silence.
“No.” Newt answers quickly.
Your face falls and your heart drops. Newt looks over and frowns at your expression.
“oh” was all you could manage out.
“Well, isn’t that what you wanted to hear? I mean my brother is far superior in most aspects.” Newt says with his head down. You scoot closer and bring your lips to his cheek.
“Newton you are a silly man. I’ve had feelings for you for years” you whispered in his ear. Newt bolts up and scares a couple of fwoopers in the rafters.
“P-Pardon?” He stutters out. You roll your eyes and stand up.
“You would think someone as smart and handsome and amazing as yourself could see how much I am in love with you” you say.
You aren’t sure where the sudden confidence is coming from but you’ve been waiting to say this for ages. A giddy, childlike smile makes its way onto Newts face.
“Do you mean it?” Newt asks.
“Of course I do” you peck his nose before taking his hand and leading him out of the barn.
Newt is too shocked to say anything. Before you could enter the house Newt spins you around and slams his lips onto yours.
“I love you so much. I can’t believe you actually feel the same way” Newt giggles out. You wrap your arms around his neck and bring your faces close.
“You silly little Magizoologist. How could I not fall for you?” you reply. Newt’s eyes are filled with joy as you enter the house.
“Thank you so much mum for having us but, I think it’s time we go.” Newt says. You and Newt leave hand and hand, this time as lovers.
However, you both missTheseus in the corner with a hidden smirk on his face.
“Bout time they got together, don’t you think” he says looking at his parents.
