Lilly and Annah made their way down out of the castle to the greenhouses with the other Ravenclaws.
"I hope today's going to go fast. I can't wait for the weekend." Grumbled Annah. But Lilly wasn't listening, she was preoccupied by a tall, dark fellow Ravenclaw.
Lilly didn't know his name but had seen him before. He was the same age as her and was surrounded by an obnoxious crowd. Lilly also figured he was the new guy. He had a cute, smooth face, with deep brown eyes below thick but neat eyebrows and high cheekbones. He wore glasses which framed his face perfectly, or so Lilly though.
She quickly snapped back to reality as Annah jabbed her in the ribs.
"Hey! What was that for?" Lilly frowned at her best friend. Annah raised a perfectly shaped eye brow as her eyes flicked to the boy Lilly was describing in her head. "Oooh! Do you like him?!" Squealed Annah. "Go talk to him! You two would look so sweet together!" She pushed Lilly towards him, a little too hard. Lilly bumped into the back of him.
"Oh. I'm sorry." She mumbled, looking at the grass nervously.
The boy looked at her and smiled gently.
"It's okay. It was an accident, I think" he grinned. He had a soft, low voice that flowed like velvet to Lillly's ears.
"Um. Yeah, it was." Lilly looked up into the boy's eyes. "I'm Lilly by the way." She smiled.
"I'm Zach. Nice to meet you, Lilly." He said, extending out a hand. Lilly shook it lightly, he had strong but gentle hands.
Professor Sprout came out from the greenhouses and called them all in.
"Well, I hope we get to talk again. You seem nice." He smiled warmly as he looked at her blushing face.
"Yeah. We will, Zach." She grinned as she said his name. His smile widened as he turned and walked away.
The whole of Herbology Lilly couldn't focus. Her mind still thinking of Zach and his mesmerising voice. She grinned to herself as she realised her hand was still tingling from his touch. Her cheeks began to glow a rosy pink and she quickly turned her attention back to Professor Sprout.
