“Alright!” Teddy said loudly clapping his hands.
Victoire rolled her eyes, “We’re all right ‘ere, Teddy. You don’t need to shout.”

“That is an 'orrible name,” Victoire frowned.
Daisy and Saanvi giggled, leaning into one another.
“Whatever,” Teddy said dismissively, “We can work out a better name later. The important thing is, we’re all here for one united purpose!” He paused to gesture dramatically and the other students stared at him, Daisy and Saavi giggled.
Teddy sighed, “You could show a little more enthusiasm, you know!”
“Should we clap?” Peter asked.
“Get on with it, Ted,” Victoire prompted with an exasperated smile.
Teddy said, “Fine. So, we’ve all seen my cousin and godfather, the illustrious Professor Potter and Professor Malfoy, flirting-”
“Insults really don’t seem like flirting to me,” Victoire said. To try and quell Teddy’s puppy dog expression she added, “They do look good together.”
Saanvi sighed, “Have you seen how Professor Potter smiles when Professor Malfoy talks with him?”
“He just lights up!” Daisy said with a giggle, “It’s the sweetest thing.”
“But what about Professor Malfoy?” Victoire said, “ 'E is always sneering and smirking at 'arry.”
“He stares at his arse.”
