Chapter 13: A Very Gryffie Holiday: Secrets Revealed

When Roxanne was six years old she had come upon a cave that was covered with weeds and some rocks had caved in that was by The Burrow. This was the perfect place to have somewhere of her own. She would sneak to The Cave when she needed to get away from her family and think. Now that she was fifteen she had a lot to think of, thanks to her new best friend Hormones.

Roxanne put on her teal peacoat, mustard yellow scarf, gloves, and hat and headed out of the door, saying to Gram and Gramps that she was going out. She let out a breath and watched the steam dance out of her mouth, then . walked towards her special place where she hoped Annabelle would also be. The snow crunched under her fuzzy, brown boots as she proceeded. She could make out a red coat and white winter accessories on a tall girl as she got closer to her destination. She smiled as Annabelle Zabini turned around and smiled her heartbreaking smile.

“You are here,” Roxanne said softly, going into The Cave.

“Of course, did you think I would abandon you?” Annabelle asked, taking off her hat and shaking out her caramel curls.

“No, I am just glad you are here,” Roxanne said getting closer to Annabelle and putting her mocha hands onto Annabelle’s milk chocolate cheek.

“Anne,” Annabelle breathed running her hands through the others chestnut curls.

“Belle,” Roxanne replied softly kissing Annabelle’s soft lips. This is one reason she wanted no one to find her secret hideout. She had to keep the fact that she liked girls and the fact that she was dating Annabelle Zabini, away from everyone.

“You taste like Butterbeer,” Annabelle said smiling.

“And you taste like blueberry pie, my new favorite pie,” Roxanne smirked, running her hands though her loves hair.

“Have you told your family about us, Anne?” Annabelle said, looking into Roxanne’s hunter green eyes.

Roxanne hesitated a bit and said, “Only James.”

Annabelle looked hurt and a little angry. “He already knew, so you have told no one, are you embarrassed of me?”

“No, I would never be embarrassed of you darling,” Roxanne replied, looking down.,“I am just embarrassed of myself.”

Annabelle turned Roxanne’s chin up so their eyes met and said, “There is no need to hate who you are, embrace it, plus they will not judge you. Your family is the most understanding, James was totally fine with it and the rest will be too.”

Roxanne kissed her girlfriend and said, “I bet you are right.”

“I am always right Anne,” Annabelle smirked, “Go tell them, it is Christmas so everyone is there, owl me later and tell me how it went.”

Roxanne walked back to the Burrow and went into the kitchen that had been magically enhanced to fit the huge family.

“Roxi, you are just in time for dinner,” Gram Molly said beaming.

“I have something to say before we eat,” Roxanne said shyly.

James beamed; he knew what she was going to say and said, “Go on Rox!”

“I….um…like girls,” She said waiting for the anger and crying.

“Zat is great, Roxanne,” Aunt Fleur said beaming; she was the last person Roxanne expected to be ok.


“Of course, why would we think any different?” Uncle Charlie said.

“I don’t know,” Roxanne said.

“The only thing that matters is who your girlfriend is,” Fred asked.

“It’s Annabelle Zabini.”

“She’s hot, you better invite her over,” Fred replied.

Roxanne smiled, she was glad her family was ok with her being different.
