"Scorpius, you asked out a girl? Who was it?" Draco asked on the drive home from the train station.
"You'll freak out when I tell you, please don't freak out." I asked before I told him, him and Ron hadn't reconciled yet so there was still tension there.
"I promise I won't freak out." Draco replied with his eyebrows raised.
"I asked out Rose Granger-Weasley" I replied, awaiting his response.
"Oh nice, WAIT ROSE GRANGER-WEASLEY, YOU ASKED OUT A WEASLEY, YOU KNOW HER MOTHER SLAPPED ME HER AUNT CURSED ME MANY TIMES HER UNCLE AND I HAVE DUELED COUNTLESS TIMES AND HER FATHER IS AN ABSOLUTE IDIOT!" He shouted at me
"You can't judge a person because of their family. How'd you feel if someone couldn't or wouldn't date you because of what your father did? That'd make you feel terrible because you aren't your father." I pleaded, I wanted his approval on this so badly, but with or without I'd still ask her out again.
"I-I I guess, she is a good person as well. You know what, go ahead Scorpius, pursue Rose." He finally agreed. "You might try again at Harry's birthday party, he invited us."
"Thank you so much dad! I really like Rose, so this means a lot to me." The rest of the drive home was nice since I got that out of the way. I began counting down the days till July 31st, the day I'd see Rose again.
"Scorpius, are you ready yet, I know you're planning on seeing Rose again but we can't be late!" Dad shouted up at me, I checked one last time in the mirror. I had on a button up shirt and a nice pair of jeans. A subtle look that anyone would wear to a birthday party. I ran downstairs and we apparated to the party.
"Scorpius!" Rose shouted when she saw me, she ran up and hugged me. I hugged her back, though I liked her this was awkward.
"Rose, aren't you making things a bit obvious." I whispered, she immediately let go, blushing.
"Sorry, uh, my cousin asked me to tell you to meet him in his room if I saw you. Do you know where it is, if not I can take you." She replied.
"No I don't know where it is." I said nervously, why wasn't Albus down here?
"Oh just follow me." She replied, we went up a set of stairs, outside the door was a hamper with slytherin robes in it. obviously Albus' room.
"Scorpius! You're finally here!" Albus said, "Rose you may rejoin the party. Scorpius come here."
"Okay... What's going on?" I asked nervous yet again.
"Well Lilly and Rose are sharing a room for the night, and Rose kept going on and on about you. Luckily Lilly can't keep a secret no matter how hard she tries. She told me everything. Rose said that she liked you a lot, and if you didn't ask her out quick enough next year she'd take matters into her own hands and ask you out." Albus explained
"Well it's the 21st century, women should be allowed to take part in romantic acts as well." I said, we rejoined the party downstairs, Rose tried to come and talk to us but Ron pulled her away saying "He needed help with the food." I left the party full of hope, and August didn't seem that long
