It was the day of the dance. I got dressed and put my makeup on before putting my hair up in a beehive.
I walked into the common room where James was waiting for me. He putt his arm around me and we walked to the great hall. It looked completely different, the tables were gone except one which was at the side of the room. On the table was a large bowl of pumpkin juice and various different types of food, in the centre of the table was a huge cake in the shape of a pumpkin.
There were chairs all around the room except the dance floor. In the centre of the dance floor was an extremely large pumpkin with a face carved into it.
There was a band who called themselves "Muggle covers" covering the song 5 colours in her hair.
"Care to dance?" He asked smiling at me. He started dancing to the music I stood and watched him in horror as he started waving his arms around and jumping trying to dance in time with the music. Honestly, he looked ridiculous. I looked behind me to see that Neville was sat on one of the chairs watching us and laughing. He gave me a thumbs up and a cheesy grin, I rolled my eyes and turned back round to James who was now trying to do the caterpillar, but instead just looked like he was having some sort of fit.
I walked toward the table to get some pumpkin juice, gesturing for Neville to follow me.
"Your date is clearly the best dancer here." He teased putting some of the juice in a plastic cup.
"I need you to help me ditch him. Like say I should be in detention or something."
"I would but it's too much fun watching you both."
"I'll make up my own excuse then." I walked away pushing through crowds of people.
"Watch it slut!" Alice shouted after I bumped into her.
I turned around and raised an eyebrow. James walked over to see what was going on.
"Me? Slut?" I shouted "At least I wasn't having sex with Professor Malfoy on his desk!"
The room went quiet "I think everyone heard that." James whispered.
"No shit." I replied.
I looked around at everyone who was staring at me "Well..." I spoke "This has been great fun but I'll be leaving now." I ran out of the great hall.
Neville followed closely behind "Well" he said "that was a pretty good excuse to leave."
I laughed and walked with him to the smoking ally.
"Got any fags?" I asked him.
He nodded and took a packet and a lighter out of his trouser pocket. I light a cigarette and he did the same, we stood there smoking for a while before he started laughing.
I looked up at him and smirked before joining in with the laughing.
"I wonder if anyone believed you." He said putting the cigarette between his lips.
I shrugged "Probably not."
He put out his cigarette and I did the same with mine and we walked out of the alleyway and to Neville's dorm.
He made me sit in the bedroom and told me not to come out until he said so.
After about an hour he came in and told me to come down. I walked down the stairs and into the living room to see he had hung fairy lights all around the room and put a spell on the piano so it was playing slow music. There was a table spread with food and drinks.
I smiled and hugged him "Thank you so much."
He put his arms around my waist and we started swaying to the music "You look absolutely beautiful." He whispered before kissing me softly on my lips. He looked at me and kissed me again, I kissed back smiling.
"I love you." He whispered.
"I love you too Neville."
