Tilly glared at me when I walked into the common room "Everyone hates you." She spoke flicking through the pages of a magazine filled with pictures of girls in ball gowns.
"What's in the bag?" She asked.
"My gown." I stated simply.
"You better hide it because if I find it, I WILL cut it up into shreds."
I stormed out of the room and into the corridor where I made my way to Neville's room. The door appeared and I knocked loudly.
"Come in Marina." He said from inside.
"How'd you know it was me?" I asked.
"The door appeared, it wouldn't appear for any one else because they've never been in here."
I nodded "Anyway can you look after this?" I asked holding up the bag with my dress in it.
He nodded "Yeah sure. But why?"
I sighed "Well when I went into the common room Tilly was sat on the sofa and she said that everyone hates me and then she said that she'd cut my dress up into shreds if she finds it."
Neville took the bag from me and walked up the stairs gesturing me to follow.
When you walked up the stairs there were 3 doors, Neville opened one and we walked into what I figured was his bedroom.
"I'll leave it hear." He said opening a wardrobe and putting the bag on the top shelf.
He looked at his watch then took it off placing it gently on the bedside table. He climbed into his bed and lifted up his covers on the other side patting the mattress "Get in." He told me.
"Why?" I asked.
"You look like you need a hug." I nodded then got in the bed.
Neville covered me up with the blanket and wrapped his arm around me "You know she's only jealous right?"
I half smiled "Why would she be jealous of me?"
"Because you got asked to the ball, she had to ask someone."
I didn't really know why that mattered because Tilly knew that I didn't like James but it was comforting non the less.
I sat up and took 2 fags out of my jeans pockets before passing one to Neville.
We light them and just sat in bed smoking and talking.
"Come with me." Neville said climbing out of bed and walking out of the bedroom and into one of the other rooms which was a kitchen/dining room.
He waved his wand and music started playing loud. I recognised the song as Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. He walked toward a cupboard and pulled out 2 wine glasses "Red or white?" He asked looking at the wine rack.
He grabbed a bottle of red wine and poured it into the two glasses. He handed a glass to me and I leaned against the worktop as he started to get ingredients out of his cupboards.
"Marina Green, I am going to cook you dinner." He announced putting a jar of pasta sauce on the work top.
I sipped the wine while I watched him trying to cook.
After about an hour he placed to plates of pasta on the table. I was shocked at how presentable they actually looked considering Neville is well... Neville.
We both sat down and started to eat.
"You're actually not a bad cook Neville." I said surprised.
When we finished our meal I went back to my dorm.
"Where have you been?" Charlie asked sitting up from her bed.
"Wandering the halls." I lied.
She narrowed her eyes "I don't believe you." She stated before lying back down and going to sleep.
