I do not Own anything but Andy's personality and the plot line the rest belongs to JKR

How did I end up in this mess? I tell you sodding Albus Potter he can’t freaking stay on his feet. He came running at me he couldn’t stop on time he ran right in to me and we fell into this sodding broom closet and someone locked us in before we could untangle ourselves. I sat cross legged on the floor against a wall watching him try to open the door. He had loosened his tie and the hem of his shirt was no longer tucked into his pants. He rolled up his sleeves and pulled on the door once more. “You might as well give up Potter,” I said angrily.

He looked down at me his emerald green eyes conveying no pleasure to be stuck here with me, and honestly I was not pleased to be locked in some broom closet with him either. I’d rather be locked in here with a deadly dragon! “Well, Wood what do you suppose we do there is no food in here,” Typical Potter boy food is all they think about. “No water and I certainly do not want to be here with you!”

“Like I want to be here with you!” I said out raged “I was not the one who knocked us into the closet!”

“You act like this was allmy fault!”

“It is you dunce you ran into me remember?” I can’t stand him he makes me so angry! Okay so you don’t know why I don’t like him do you?

Well it was first year I was sitting all by myself; I didn’t know any Wizarding children. I read up on Hogwarts. So I pretty much knew everything I needed to know as a first year. Then he comes in he had a bunch of boys with him, obviously his friends, “Hey kid get lost!” he said, keep in mind I’m year younger than him.

“Excuse me!” I said.

“This is my compartment get out!” he said.

“I was here first!” I said. He ended up picking me up off of my seat and kicking me out I heard his friends laughing, His older brother saw me, I felt frightened they look so much alike.

“Hey, what’s wrong?” he said I sighed in relief when I realized it wasn’t him.

“Someone just kicked me out of my compartment,” I said sadly.

“Really? I’m sorry, the names Potter, James Potter.”

“Andy Wood,” I introduced myself.

“Why don’t you show me who kicked you out, and I’ll take care of it,” James is a close friend of mine and he always sticks up for me when Albus is acting like a jerk. But from that day on Albus and I have never been on good terms.

I looked at Albus who was leaned against the wall; he knew now that he could practically get away with everything now that James had graduated from Hogwarts, which sucked for me, he held a smirk on his face. “James isn’t here to protect now is he?”

“Shut up Potter,”

“What are you in love with my big brother?” Potter asked.

“He’s my best friend I’m not in love with him,” I said angrily. lately I had been having mixed emotions about my relationships with people, like mine and Potter’s I had a dream that I was dating him, and I had another where he was snogging me senseless, and quite honestly I think it would have made this whole situation a lot better if we were just snogging each other’s face off it make us forget about being locked in a broom closet with each other. We heard foot steps outside the door, they didn’t here my shout for help someone put a silencing charm on the door which sucked. Potter punched the wall.

“Son of a bitch!” he said he hurt his hand I looked in a box and found a first aid kit I saw blood on his knuckles.

“Let me see your hand,” I said he held his hand out I found what I’d need in the kit. I fixed him up temporarily of course I didn’t know any healing spells that and I lost my wand some how between here and out there I think it fell out of my pocket and rolled into a corner.

“Where did you learn how to do this?” he asked.

“My mother, she’s a muggle and I got tons of scrapes and cuts she’d fix them up this way and then when my dad got home he’d fix them the magic way.” I told him.

“Well thanks Wood,” He said smiling, a genuine smile, one that he usually used for his slutty girlfriends. We sat down and started talking like civilized people, something we were new at with each other. I learned so many new things about Potter that I didn’t know. He told me stories of growing up, and playing quiddich with his family. We also talked about school related things. “I have never realized how pretty you are Andy, way prettier than the girls I’ve been dating,” He said.

“Um… thanks I guess,” I blushed at his compliment.

“I can’t believe I didn’t see it before,” Potter said. I yawned, he looked at his watch, “It’s three in the morning,” he said. “I don’t think we’ll be getting out of here soon, do we should probably get some sleep. I guess you could use me as a pillow,” He said awkwardly.

He laid back his head on top of his arm he pulled me down so my head rested on his chest. I fell asleep curled up next to him.


I woke up later and I glanced at his watch it was noon my stomach rumbled, and groaned, Potter sat up, “How did you sleep?” I asked.

“My back sorta hurts from the floor but other than that good,” he answered.

“How’s you hand?”

“It still hurts but that’s okay,” he said.

“This sucks,” I said.


“Being trapped in a sodding closet,” I said. “I’m starving!”

Potter started searching his pockets, he pulled a box of Bertie Botts every flavor beans out, “I think this should at least hold us over for a little bit,” he said. He grabbed my hand and poured some into it, his hand lingered for a second then let go. I ate the beans carefully as did Potter, nothing sucked more than getting a nasty flavored bean! Not even being locked in the closet with Albus Potter, which as it’s turning out isn’t so bad after all he’s really sweet and funny, and good looking and I wouldn’t mind being friends with him now, as long as those idiots he called friends left me alone. “I’m sorry,” he said.

“For what?” I was confused.

“For everything, this, being rude to you for the last six years, I should have known better that’s not how I was raised, it’s just…”

“Your idiot friends I know James told me,” I said this was the second time since we were locked in here that we brought up James.

“James always gave me trouble because of you, I hope you know that. He wouldn’t leave me alone this last summer he didn’t want me to hurt you, he cares a lot about you,” Potter said.

“Yeah,” I said. I didn’t know what else to say. What could I say?

“I can see why he cares about you so much, you’re smart and funny, and probably the prettiest girl here at Hogwarts,” Potter said he leaned in closer to me and I leaned in closer to him. “I think I’m an idiot for not seeing it sooner,” and he kissed me. He pulled us to a standing position and wrapped his arms around my waist and I wrapped mine around his neck playing with his hair.

The door swung open but we were both oblivious to it as we were so wrapped up in this kiss. Then we heard some one clear their throat and we jumped apart and noticed Professor Lupin Leaning in the door frame. “What’s the meaning of this?” he asked.

“Um…” I didn’t know what to say I was still shocked over the kiss.

“It’s my fault professor,” Potter said. “I accidentally knocked us in here and then someone locked us in, it was my idea to kiss she sort of had no say in the matter!” Professor Lupin looked at both of us carefully.

 “Meet me in my office both of you tonight at seven I want to talk to the both of you.” Professor Lupin walked away.

Potter and I glanced at each other, I blushed. “I like you,” Potter said. “I have fancied you for quite some time now,” Oh now that were out of the closet he tells me this. Oh well better late than never. “Will you be my girlfriend?”

“I…” I thought about it, he was asking me to be his girlfriend, maybe this is what we needed to come back to earth, honestly I think I was falling In love with him. “Yes,” I said I looked at him and he opened his eyes.

“Really?” he asked surprised.

“Yes.” He kissed me again this time his friends rounded the corner.

“Merlins beard,” shouted his best mate Al, ignored it and kept kissing me, so I ignored it too. Obviously he didn’t care what his friends thought.

I pulled away smiling. “Let’s go get something to eat,” I suggested and he nodded. He took my hand in his and we walked to the kitchens ignoring the cat calls from his friends. I stopped suddenly I caught sight of my wand I let go of his hand and talked to the corner in which my wand laid, and secured it in my pocket, and took Al’s hand once more, and we went all the way to the kitchens.
