"Are you ready to go?" Hermione asked
"Not yet!" I laughed putting the finishing touches on my hair, "Okay, now I'm ready."
"Come on," Hermione pulled Ginny and I out the door
We reached the Great Hall, but Hermione stayed back. Ginny and I did nothing we knew her plans. So we went inside. Ginny went off to look for Neville and I stayed there. I looked at the mass of people and scanned for Fred. A hand grabbed my shoulder and I jumped.
"Hello beauty queen." Fred smiled
"Hello handsome." I grinned as he put his arm around my waist
"Why thank you," Fred laughed
"Do you want to dance?" I asked
"We have to wait for the champions," Fred told me
"Oh," I blushed
The four champions walked with their dates and began to dance. I looked to see who all was there. There was Hermione with her date, Harry with a girl I also did not know, and two other couples that I didn't know anyone from.
"Harry is with Pavarti, Hermione is with Viktor Krum, there's Cedic Diggory with Cho Chang, and that's Fleur and Roger Davies." Fred explained
"Thanks," I whispered in his ear
Soon we were able to dance. We danced for quite a while, but eventually Fred went to get us some pumpkin juice. Hermione came over and began to talk to me while he was gone.
"How is Viktor?" I asked
"He's wonderful," Hermione giggled, "He's such a gentleman. I can't believe how great this all is!"
"That's brilliant," I replied smiling
"How's Fred?" Hermione smirked
"He's Fred," I blushed
"Amaris," Hermione laughed
"What?" I laughed
"You have to give me more than that." Hermione replied
"Fine," I mocked a sigh, "We've danced. He's getting us some pumpkin juice right now. Other than that, yeah, he's wonderful."
"I thought so," Hermione was whirled away Viktor
I laughed and continued to wait for Fred to return. Soon he was back and handed me a glass. I smiled at him, he smiled at me. My hand slipped into his and his smiled widened.
"Hey," I said
"Hey," He replied
"How's your juice?" I asked
"Good, yours?" He answered
"Mine's wonderful," We both knew I wasn't talking about pumpkin juice
"Am I now?" Fred grinned
"Yeah," I sighed
"What's that about?" He raised an eyebrow
"Nothing," I replied
"Finish your pumpkin juice, I'll be right back." Fred laughed
"Okay," I swallowed the rest of my pumpkin juice
I watched Fred disappear into the crowd. I strained my eyes, trying to find him again. Suddenly I found him into front of the crowd, a microphone in hand. I put a hand to my forehead. What are you trying to do, Fred Weasley?
"Hello fellow students!" Fred said into the microphone
"Hello!" The crowd replied
"I just wanted to let you lads know that Amaris Black is mine! And you ladies out there, I'm taken!" Fred shouted
There was a chorus of reactions, a few boys booed and a few girls sent glares in my direction. I laughed as the crowd then began to clap as Fred left the stage. He walked over to me and smiled.
"How was that?" He asked
"Perfect," I smiled back
