41. Just Ask Her

Alex's P.O.V


"Wow!" Clara said when she finally finished reading what the parchment said. 

"A ball! It's so awesome!" I said. That was the best way to spend the last week of us in Hogwarts, dancing and singing and having fun. 

"I really can't believe this, we only get balls when it's the triwizard tournament."

"The what?" I asked. 

"It's a kind of contest." She said. "Come on, let's tell the others." 

 

~*~

 

"Max! Come, quick!" I said, grabbing Max by her arm. 

"goodnight guys." She said. She was going to give Remus a kiss but I grabbed her harder. "Ouch! what was that for?"

"I'm so excited to tell you." I said. Clara walked with us, and we went to our common room. 

"Look." I said. 

"The Muggles and Wizards ball?!!" shouted Max. "Oh God." She covered her face with her hands. 

"I knew she wouldn't be as happy as us." Clara said.

"What is it?" I asked. "Why aren't you happy?" 

"In case you haven't noticed, I'm not super when it comes to girly stuff." She said. 

"but you are a girl." I said. 

"No, I just think like a girl and feel like a girl - I don't act so girly like Clara does. I mean - I can't dance, and I don't wear dresses, and whenever there's a ball like
I was in the common room, staring at the parchment that professor McGonagall pinned yesterday. The ball was a great idea, it would help me have a private nice time with Alex, only I have to ask her to come with me very fast, before anyone else does. 

"You alright there?" James asked.  

"Yeah, just - lost with thoughts." I said.

"You're thinking of Alex, now aren't you? It's funny how now you know what I feel for Lily." 

"Yeah." I asked.

"That's why I always tried to make her go out with me. Guess that's my lucky year, after all." He said. "You've gotta ask her fast." He said patting my shoulder. 

"I know." I said. "I know."

But how the hell was I supposed to ask her.

Lily's P.O.V


We had to write an essay about dragons and I forgot to write it yesterday. I went to the corner of the common room, and put my parchment, pen and book on the table and started writing. 

Almost everyone was really excited by the news of the ball, especially girls. Not that boys weren't, some of them were more excited than the girls, which was really funny. 

The room soon got full, and I had to finish my studying really fast, because it was harder to concentrate now. I got out of the common room and started studying in the corridors instead. A letter landed on the ground were my open book was, and I automatically smiled, and opened the letter.

Would you like to go to the ball with me? 

This handwriting, I knew it, I don't think it was James's but, could it? I turned around, hoping to see James staring back at me with his attractive smile. But James was not the person I saw, and I got really disappointed. 

"What are you doing here, Severus?" I asked irritated. 

"I - I wrote it on the letter." He said. I raised an eyebrow. "Look, I already told you I'm sorry, I really am!" 

"No you look, Snape." I said. "I don't care about you anymore. You've chosen them, and I hope you're happy now, with them. Just don't bother yourself and talk to me again, ever! Especially after what you did two weeks ago, what you called me. So no, my answer is and will always be no. I'm going with someone else, and even if I weren't, I'd rather go alone than go with you." Yeah, it was kinda harsh, but I did not care. Sev, no longer existed for me. Sev, was now dead. I took my stuff and went back to the common room. Snape tried to block my way, but I hit him with my shoulder and continued walking. I was really angry now, and - sad. I threw my stuff on the desk and started trying to continue. A flying flower landed on the desk, and I automatically smiled. I turned around now really hoping it was James, and indeed it was. His wand in his hands and a smile on his face. But then he came nearer. 

"What's wrong?" He asked, putting his hand on my cheek and moving his thumb gently. 

"Nothing." I lied.

"Lily, I can tell when you're lying, and when you're upset. What's wrong? Who irritated you?" 

"It - it doesn't matter, I'm great now." I said, and kissed his cheek to end the discussion. "So, why the flower?" I said taking his hand. 

"Oh, well..." He said rubbing the back of his neck. "I was just wondering, if you'd wanna go to the ball with me - you know, as my date?" 

"Are you kidding me?! Is there someone better than you for me? Of course I would!" I said, and he leaned closer and kissed me. He's just perfect. 

 

Ethan's P.O.V


My brain was really exhausted now. I've been thinking about this ball for a very long time, I nearly slept yesterday. The thing is, that I know who I wanna go with, but I can't ask her out. Well, only because it's the first time for us to go anywhere as a couple. I was really concerned, what if she didn't want this to happen? What if she rejected me? Then everything will just fall apart. Alright Ethan, you should really ask her before it's too late! 

"Ethan!" Grace called. 

"What? Yeah?" 

"This is like the hundredth time I called you!" She said. 

"Sorry, I - I was thinking."

"Of Ruby, I guess?" She said raising her eyebrows. I'm glad I told Grace about everything, she's way better now. And it's easier to talk to her about Ruby. Not so awkward. I laughed. 

"Yes. Damn it. Can you, wizards read minds?!" I asked. 

"No, but girls can." She said laughing. "So have you asked her yet?" 

"No, I really don't know how to do it." 

"Just go to her and say something sassy. like, hey girl I wanna see you dancing in a dress with me." She said joking imitating a guy's voice. 

"Good thing you're not a guy." I said laughing. 

"No really, just do it - it's gonna be alright!" 

"Thanks." I said smiling. 

"So, guess who asked me to go with him?" She sang.

"Who? umm, Jack?" 

"Jack? Who's Jack? Anyway - it's your friend." She winked. 

"Eli? Austin?" I asked. 

"Eli." She said laughing. "Can you believe it?! But really, I’ve never noticed how cute he is, till now of course." 

I smiled and just looked at her. Yeah, actually Eli and Grace would be a good couple.
