I hadn't been able to sleep the last few days. Victoire had talked to me once in potion when she needed to borrow my quill but I hadn't gotten a thank you. I honestly had never had any really close friend besides Victoire so I had no one to talk to ever. All of the younger Weasley's (from Rose an Albus down had started to talk to me. The older cousins knew how to hold a grudge.
I walked into potions late. "You're late Lupin!" Professor Slughorn yelled as I walked in through the door. "Please take a seat next to Miss Weasley over there." He motioned to Victoire. Her eyes started to tear up but she hid it before anyone but me could tell. I, being her boyfriend for a while, could sense her emotions without trying.
I sat down slowly as Professor Slughorn started his speech on proper safety. "Victoire..." I whispered, she looked over at me like she did when we were still dating. She tried to cover it up but she knew I had saw it.
"What Teddy?!" She said in a quiet but highly annoyed voice. I could tell she was holding back tears again. I watched one roll down her cheek and she wiped it away at the end of her face.
"I am... I am... I am really really sorry!" Now I sounded like I was going to cry. I held back my tears.
"Is there a problem Victoire?" Slughorn questioned her.
"I uh..." She sniffled. "I smashed my foot into a wall and it really hurts, can I go to the hospital wing?" Slughorn looked like he was about to object.
"I'll take her." I piped up. He opened his mouth unsure of what to answer. Finally he said yes. Victoire and I walked out of the potions room in silence. I looked at her, she had tears streaming down her face. I stopped and stepped in front of her grabbing both of her hands. She didn't pull them away. "I..." I looked into her brilliant brown eyes, a tear rolled down my cheek but I didn't care, I was with Victoire, the only friend have ever had. "Am so sorry, I haven't slept for days! I haven't talked to anyone in our year! I felt like I would cry every time I saw you! I didn't want to do anything but cry, I need you back Victoire. I need you." My voice trailed off. She looked at me, she was no longer crying.
"Teddy," She said with a little laugh. "I felt the same way." She laughed. I don't know why she was laughing, a second ago we had both been crying, but for some reason I felt like laughing too. We were both dieing of laughter. Laughing at nothing but our own personal problems.
"So can we get back together?" I said as we started to calm down. She took a deep breathe. This girl was not about to cry! She just cried a river, laughed her head of and now she is going to cry again?
"Teddy, I really love you. Really love you I mean. But I don't think we can be together." I sighed, I should have seen it coming. I leaned back against the wall and let myself slide down to the floor. I sat there looking at my hands. I don't know when but after a little while, Victoire was sitting on the ground next to me with her head on my shoulder.
"What do we do?" She asked me. I gave her a confused look. "My dad won't let me date you." She said and it confirmed my worst nightmare. I just shrugged and she laid her head back on my shoulder. We sat like that until the bell rang. We walked back to potions, holding hands, to get our stuff. She gave me a kiss on the cheek when we parted ways for our next class, James who was standing next to us just stood there with his mouth wide open. I winked at him and he walked over to me.
"What happened?" He asked,flabbergasted.
"I am good with the ladies!" I said as I walked away, I looked back and gave him a cheesy smile, he just stood where he was amazed.
