"You're freezing, jesus" with fred weasley😊
“What are you doing out here?” You look yo from the ground to see Fred walking towards you. You’re sat underneath your favourite tree by the lake, it’s dark out, it’s cold out, but with the news that your mother was in hospital you needed to find somewhere quiet and isolated. The cold was something you stopped feeling, you were more aware of the sadness, the worry that your mum might not be okay.
“I needed to…to think.” He sits down next to you, your hands taken in his mitten covered ones (Mrs. Weasley knits all her kits gloves and hats and scarves each year a new set), his hands are so much warmer than yours.
“You’re freezing, jesus” His hand lifts to your cheek feeling just how cold you are. “You need to go inside, c’mon.” He pulls you to your feet, shoving his coat over your shoulders.
“I..I didn’t realise how long i’d been out here.” You can feel tears creeping up, it’s so strange this is is what starts bringing it all to the surface. Not the letter. Not the fact your mum was unwell. But the fact that someone was trying to look after you.
“Hey, it’s okay.” An arm wraps around you and Fred keeps you close all the way to the castle, walks you to your common room, and sits there with you. He refuses to leave.
Fred Weasley doesn’t know what’s happened, but he does know that you need a friend and he’s not going to leave you.
