27. Love and Friendship

-One Week Later


Ethan's P.O.V


I haven't talked to Ruby since Hogsmeade's trip. I haven't even seen her. She's avoiding me and I really hate it! I think this is it, I've failed to have the most important thing in my life to me, our friendship. Right here in Hogwarts she changed. Or did I change? I can't tell the truth anymore. Does she like him or does she not? 

It's Tuesday and we haven't any class with the Slytherins. Yesterday, however we had Astronomy with them, but Ruby sat in the back seat with her friends. She's been doing this all week. 

"There's gonna be a magic duel tomorrow. Not for real but just for teaching." Grace told us.

"Kidding!" Eli said. Grace shook her head smiling. Yes it would be cool to watch two people having a magic duel. It has to be cool.We had our Charms and Tranfiguration classes and It was lunch time now. It was my turn today to talk about a muggle stuff and I wanted to talk about movies. I had my presentation text paper in my right hand and I was reading it orally while walking to the great hall. The boys and Grace were walking with me. 

"But it's gonna be after all of the classes are over. In the evening." I hear Grace add, and then looked again at my paper. 

"Hey guys, I want to consecrate on this for a bit so I'll just walk alone, alright?" I said to them and after they nodded I walked away from them. 

"movies are so much like the wizarding pictures. They're technically moving frames ..." I raid in a low voice and now held the paper with both my hands and looked at mostly that I barely saw my way. I wasn't even thinking of it, but it hit me when I bumped into someone so hard that they fell on the floor and yelled. 


I would really prefer if I just said it wasn't someone that I knew, but it was someone that I knew very well. Or at least used to know so well. Ruby. 

"Oh, it's you." She said. 

"Sorry, I wan't-"

"I wasn't looking either. I'm - sorry." I offered her my hand, she looked at it for a while before she finally decided to take it, so I grabbed her up to her feet. 

"Thanks - it  -  was so good of you to-" I was all awkward, I wasn't happy at all. "Look, Ethan. Can we talk for a bit?" This was my time. I could either defeat the fire with fire and tell her I was really busy. -and technically I was kinda busy-  but that'd only end up burning us both. Besides, I'm dying to talk to her. But I mustn't be so easy.. 

"I don't know ... Is it important, or like - urgent?" Ruby closed her eyes and opened them again, took a deep breath, as if swallowing her anger and said, 

"Yes. It is important ... please, Ethan?"

I couldn't talk, if I did I'm not sure how my voice would act, I don't trust it in these situations. So I just nodded and walked with her, folding the paper and putting it in my robes' pocket.

"So ... It's really hard for me to start this and I don't really know how to do this but ... Let's try I'm sorry - like, really sorry." Oh no, I don't wanna reply, I don't wanna talk, but it seems like it's all getting out of me without even meaning it. 

"Sorry for what? For kissing a boy in front of me? For not telling me you were going out with someone? For causing me trouble? For causing me to get jealous? For ignoring me for a whole freaking week? Or sorry for simply not loving me? Because I want to know the reason. I want to know if you're feeling bad for me because you find me pitiful or because you've done something bad for me!" Ruby's eyes started tearing. She was crying because of me. Did I regret it? I'm not sure I did. Maybe sometimes you can hurt the ones you love and don't feel guilty for it but still love them anyway. 

"Ethan I know how bad it was! I know that I was such a pig! I know it but - I honestly have't got an idea of why I was doing it!"

"Yeah, you just did it not on purpose, right?"

"ETHAN PLEASE! Just try to understand me-"

"Then explain!"

"I can't explain it!"

"FINE!" I yelled. I looked around and many people were looking at us weirdly. I huffed and I grabbed Ruby's arm. "Let's sit down and lower our voices."  I walked to the closest stone chairs and sat, releasing her arm. I started at her for a while waiting for her to say something. 

"I'm not - I have no romantic feelings for Regulus, just want you to know." She said her tears falling down so fast.

"You - you don't? Then, why did you-?"

"To make you get jealous!" She said sobbing now. "I don't know why I just wanted you to get jealous!"

"And how did you know that I would get jealous - I mean, we're friends." Ruby swallowed hard and then stopped crying for a second. 

"I don't know - maybe I hoped, Ethan ... Maybe I hoped that you'd get jealous like I get jealous when I see you with Grace - and when I saw you that day with Grace, I felt jealous but - I never knew you'd get that jealous!"

"That's because-" I said in almost a whisper, now was the time. Good timing or bad, I didn't care. I had to tell her now or I don't know what would happen to me. "Because you have no idea how much I love you." I looked at her eyes once more, ignoring her open mouth, licked my lips - but walked away.


Katy's P.O.V


"Ruby? Are you okay?!" I went to check where Ruby was and I found her sitting on one of the stony chairs, her nose red and tears were falling from her eyes. She shook her head. What happened?! I sat by her and started rubbing her back. "Tell me, what happened?" It took her a while to finally catch a breath and talk. 

"I hurt him. And it turns out I haven't only hurt my friend or my best friend or even my brother - I've hurt the one I love, and the one who loves me!"

what was she talking about?! And who was she talking about?! I crossed my eyebrows trying to get what she was saying. 

"What do you mean?" I finally managed to ask her. 

"Katy, remember Hogsmeade's trip last week? Well I haven't told you everything about it." Here it goes. "I went out with Regulus and-"

"You love Regulus?" I asked not curtain how to react. 

"NO! I went out with Regulus and we went to the same place that Ethan and his "friend" Grace went to. They were together and as a couple. I did something partly out of jealousy and partly out of stupidity, really I don't know why! When I found that Ethan could see me I - I started flirting with Regulus and then it led me to - to kiss him. When I did so Ethan was really shocked and then the next thing that happened, Grace slipped her hot drink on his head and ran away yelling at him. This was the first bad thing of that day, the other was Regulus! He kinda got happy that I did this and he wanted more, I finally managed to get away from him. After what I've done with Ethan I never showed up the previous week and that's why I always asked you to sit by me in the back seat in the classes we shared with the Hufflepuffs. I was trying to avoid him. I am so mean!"

Oh Ruby, what have you done. She started crying once again and I hugged her tightly, rubbing her back with my hand. 

"Shush, don't say that! You're not mean. What you've done wasn't the best thing to do but - Ruby, you're such a good person, believe me! You know, I've never met any other Slytherin as kind as you, I don't know why. That's what made me give Ethan a chance, I did it for you! Now tell me - do you love Ethan?"

"I think I do."

"That's all what matters. Just do what I say and hopefully, he'll forgive you."
