I woke the next morning to a layer of snow covering the window ledge. I looked out at the glistening grounds, perfect for snow ball fights.
I couldn't wait to get down there, and pulverise Ravenclaw with snow.
I smiled, then frowned.
What was I to do about Jonas? Pappy had never returned my letter. I sighed and looked at the necklace.
A gold dove shaped pendant hung from a thin black cord. I stowed the necklace in my pocket.
I took the stairs two at a time and stopped.
There he was, his red hair framing his sleeping face. A strand of hair fell in front of his eyes.
Gently, I pushed the hair to his ear.
I sat down beside him, "Jonas, wake up", I said softly, shaking his arm.
"What?" he said, his voice muffled.
"Sit up" I whispered, turning his head in my direction.
His eyes fluttered open, "Julliette?" he frowned, and pushed himself up.
A red blush spread from his temple down to his neck.
"I wanted to thank you. For the necklace", I fished the cord from my pocket.
"Oh, you're welcome." he said, staring at a point above my head, "You could put the dove on your gold chain" he added in a mumble.
He unstrung the dove from the cord, and offered it to me.
I unclipped my gold chain and clipped the dove to one of the links.
"Here" Jonas reached behind my neck to re-clip the chain.
I sucked in my breath, when he leaned in. I stared at his crystal clear blue eyes, lined with black lashes.
I felt the blush spread across my face, as he struggled with the clip, and leaned in closer.
Losing his balance, he fell forward pushing us down to the floor.
"Sorry" he said, his face getting even more red.
"It's okay" I said, letting out a breath I didn't know I was holding.
No one moved.
"I'm going to get up now" he said.
"Don't" I said quietly.
"Why?" he asked, his ears turned red.
"When we fell, my shirt slid down, I'm not decent".
I smiled sheepishly as Jonas closed his eyes and moved away from the floor.
I fixed my shirt, "You can open your eyes now Jonas".
He grinned slightly, "Sorry for tackling you".
"No problem" I whispered, stepping closer to Jonas, "Thanks for the necklace".
"No problem" he replied.
I leaned in and kissed his cheek lightly.
I turned and walked out of the common room.
Jonas Weasley's POV
What the hell just happened?
Honestly, am I dreaming?
A) I fall on my one true love and,
B) She kissed me on the cheek.
Yep, I'm pretty sure I was dreaming.
I sighed contentedly, watching Julliette's black hair whip through the doorway.
I sank onto the sofa ,just as she came down the stairs.
Joy McConner is the most annoying person in the world. I can't comprehend why Teddy likes her. Sure she's pretty, but what else is she? Annoying, nosey, uptight, annoying..
"Hi Jonas!" she said, sitting down basically on top of me.
"Hi" I muttered, slowly inching myself across the sofa.
"So, are you going to Hogsmede today?" she asked, fluttering her eyes lids.
"Hm? Oh, yeah. I might ask Julliette to get a Butter beer with me" I mumbled.
Joy scowled, "She'll never go with you", her face softened as she pressed her body against mine, "But I will" she whispered in my ear.
She rested her head on my chest, her blonde hair tickling my chin.
As I struggled under her grip, Teddy, of all people, came down the stairs.
He bared his teeth, his hair glowing bright red.
"Jonas Flippin' Weasley!" he roared, "Get your god damn hands off of Joy!".
Joy jumped back from the couch, just as Teddy launched himself into the air.
He brought his arm back, his fist made contact with my face.
"Teddy! She jumped me!" my voice was strained as I cupped a hand around my cheek.
Teddy's hair went back to its normal brown, "Sorry Jonas, I know you wouldn't try anything", he grinned and scratched the back of his neck, "You're going to get quite the shiner!".
I laughed, "Thanks, Teddy".
Boy, do I love Saturdays.
Mr Ollivander's POV
I sighed loudly, poking at the dish in front of me.
"Dad, have you heard from Julliette lately?" Carmen asked, her blondish hair was tied back into a bun, I watched as she ladled soup into her own bowl.
"Yes, she sent me a letter the other day", I smiled a little.
I hadn't returned her letter yet, but I would tonight.
"I'm worried about her" Carmen said, as she sat down across from me.
"Why's that?" I asked, not really paying attention.
"You haven't told her yet, about how you're dying" her voice sounded weak.
I smiled warmly at her, "I'm nearly ninety years old, Carmen. I've lived my life".
She looked at me, her eyes glassy, "Why can't you live ten more years dad? You're still so healthy !" she said, tears dripping silently from her eyes.
"Carmen, Julliette turns seventeen this year, she's a grown woman. So are you! You can handle things perfectly well!" I smiled at her, "But I want you and Julliette to have a few things when I die. I heard there was a ball of sorts coming up at Hogwarts?".
Carmen took a deep breath, "Yes, tomorrow at dinner they will be informing the students. The event is next Saturday I think".
I nodded, "Good", I stood up from the table, "Thank you for the wonderful soup, Carmen", I pecked her on the forehead and made my way to the library.
I stood at the window, the owls gripping my arm, I tied the package between them.
"Go to Julliette" I told them, as they flew out the window.
Phew, that was my longest chapter yet!
Can I just say, that when I started to write about how Mr Ollivander is dying and what not, I started tearing up. Because the nickname "Pappy" comes from my own grandfather's nickname "Papa".
My grandfather isn't deceased (thank goodness), but it made me really sad, and I haven't even gotten to the sad parts yet! Okay, thanks for reading this chapter!! Stick with the story, rate, review and comment!!
