As best friends, Rose and I, completely loved gossip, boys and more gossip. Rose of course pretends she hated it, because most of her family was the gossip. But as I was no real relation, I could get away with shouting gossip about and filling in Rosie when I saw her. Given that she was always in the library though, Rose also had plenty of gossip, when people will learn that the library is a silent place and finally understands that if you are the only one talking you will be listened to, I will never know. It certainly hasn't happened yet! Me and Rose rarely had time for gossip and boys though, as we were constantly followed round by two very annoying and occasionally very protective boys as best friends.

I remember once in third year, when we were just starting to get into boys and didn't see them as people of the opposite gender... But with way more germs. Rose and I completely fell for the two most gorgeous boys I had ever seen, I mean, one was part Cormac (mine, after Rose said something about her mum... I can't remember) and the other part Wood. Granted they'd never go for us. We were in third year and they were in fifth, but a girl can dream right? This is when we first got a taste of just how protective these boys were.

That night we were sat in the Slytherin common room, all four of us on the two chairs, closest to the fire, the only fire. Granted the common room was large and really quite cold because it was on the lower ground and next to the lake, meaning to boys dorms, directly opposite the entrance and slightly to the left, down the stairs, were dark and cold because their windows looked out into the lake. Whereas the girls dorms looked over the water’s edge as they were up the stairs. The common room was grandly decorated with ancient antiques and posh looking items everywhere, whether it was an ornate chair you were sat on, or a lavish table you probably shouldn't have your feet on, everything always looked pristine, and not very inviting, it was generally not very comfortable you see.

Anyway, on this particular Saturday evening, Al and Scorp were sitting on the chairs properly, whereas, me and Rose were sat on the arms of said chairs, with our backs slightly leaning against them, while looking at each other and talking animatedly about the day’s events.

"Did you see him today Rose, did you actually see him, I was fit to burst, he looked GORGEOUS! I would have eaten him if I didn't think cannibalism was wrong!" I joked.

"I know, I know, Ben did look great, but did you see Alex, HE looked even better today... Really hot... Pity he has a girlfriend really" Rose agreed.

At this point, Scor who she had been leaning on suddenly jumped up after he caught on what we were saying, (normally the boys either have their own conversation or zone out most of the time, we tend to go on and waffle a lot). His sudden movement caused Rose to fall backwards onto the chair, and somehow (don't ask me how) flip over the other arm of the chair, causing her to land on her bum facing us.

"What was that for smart arse" Rose huffed, getting up and sitting on the chair properly, crossing her arms and facing Scor.

"Sorry, forgot you were leaning on me. But what's this about thinking Alex Wood is 'hot'?" Scor quoted.

Al, who was quite slow sometimes, had finally stopped laughing at poor Rose and jumped up in his seat, although unlike Scorp, he caught me before I could fall. "First off, that's how you treat a friend Scorp; you try and make sure they don't fall! Second off, what?! Who’s 'hot'?" Al shared.

"Thanks by the way Al, I didn't really want to head the same way as Rose. And really? We talked about them all the way through Hogsmeade today, all the way back, more at dinner and finally, quite a lot this evening. And you're catching on now?" I wondered. Seriously these guys could be dim.

"You’re welcome Liv. All day? Did you notice that, I didn't?" He asked Scorp.

"Of course I didn't, why'd you think I caused Rose to fall, for fun? Anyway, they're not allowed to like boys yet. They'll break your hearts, no need for you two to have any involvement with boys for a long time, possibly never." Scorp replied.

"Wait, excuse me? We can't do what? Who are you two to say what we can and can't do! Me and Livy can do whatever we want" Rose protested, starting to cause a slight scene in the common room, as people were starting to look.

"In case you haven't noticed Rose, I happen to be your best friend, and Al, don't you remember, is your cousin." Scorp retaliated.

"You may be my friend, and he may be my cousin but that gives you no right to tell me what to do. It's not as if I even stand a chance, he's a fifth year and has got a girlfriend, bet you didn't listen to me when I said that earlier" Rose testified and by the end had lowered her voice, making it sound just disappointed.

"I'm just looking out for you Rose, both of us are, we care so much, of course about you too Livy. Rose, honestly, I bet you could easily out do any girls in fifth. Easily. I promise." Scorp confessed, trying to comfort her.

"Scorp you big softy, where'd that come from? I know you care but you don't need to try and control all of my life, because, trust me, I'm not going to let you do that" Rose justified, getting up and giving him a hug.

As Rose and Scorp were arguing Al had come back to sit of the chair we normally shared, this time sitting on the arm himself, leaning on the back of the chair this time, trying to comfortably watch the show, unfolding before our eyes. Once Rose had forgiven him again, and hugging him.

I leaned forward and whispered in Al ear, "I don't get how he does it, every time, she just melts, she can't stay mad at him for longer than 5 minutes at a time!”

Al chuckled to himself before claiming "He does have a way with words, they have each other wrapped round the others little finger. Have you noticed, Rose goes all quiet, and Scorp caves for it. Every time." He whispered this back, making me smile, realising he was right.

Rose and Scorp were now talking about transfiguration, so we continued. "You know I'd do the same for you. I'm always here for you Liv. Always, you name it, and I'll be there to look after you. If I over reacted I'm sorry, I just don't want you to be upset. Ever." Al assured me, still whispering, and now looking me directly in the eyes.

"I know, I know Ally. Don't worry; I will take you up on that offer one day. I'm always here for you if you need anything as well though Ally" I whispered back, feeling a strange warmth inside of my stomach, he makes me smile so easily, helps me out all the time.

He's great, my Ally Wally. He gave me an awkward hug, sitting on arm of the chair, smiling ridiculously as well. Then joining in the conversation with Scorp and Rose who were now talking about our potions essay that was due in a couple days.

(ROSE POV)
Seriously I don’t know why he has to always have an argument with me, like always. I can’t believe we’re at it again, and this time it’s stupid, I don’t understand why he can’t just accept this!

“Anyway, they're not allowed to like boys yet. They'll break your hearts, no need for you two to have any involvement with boys for a long time, possibly never." Scorp replied.

"Wait, excuse me? We can't do what? Who are you two to say what we can and can't do! Me and Livy can do whatever we want" I protested.

Starting to cause a slight scene in the common room, as people were starting to look, I hate causing scenes, people keep looking over! Being me, a Wotter, means I get constant attention. I actually hate it; I’m like my mum in that way, me and hundreds of eyes staring in my direction is never a good thing. I went to a muggle primary school and I was an angel in the nativity, unfortunately, I was the only angel that had to speak, it meant that the front row was almost drowned in my tears and one poor kid was covered in my puke. But anyway, I’m angry at Scorp.

"In case you haven't noticed Rose, I happen to be your best friend, and Al, don't you remember, is your cousin." Scorp retaliated.

"You may be my friend, and he may be my cousin but that gives you no right to tell me what to do. It's not as if I even stand a chance, he's a fifth year and has got a girlfriend, bet you didn't listen to me when I said that earlier" I testified and by the end had lowered my voice, making it sound just disappointed.

Ha! See how you like that Scorp! I’m disappointed, because I am, although, that always pushes him over the edge, I reckon I could win this one!

"I'm just looking out for you Rose, both of us are, we care so much, of course about you too Livy. Rose, honestly, I bet you could easily out do any girls in fifth. Easily. I promise." Scorp confessed, trying to comfort her.

Damn. Damn, Damn! He’s done it again; I can’t stay mad at him, he just promised, I’m going to have to give in to it. It’s those eyes, I just get lost in them, those stormy grey eyes. And look at his little face; he’s pulled puppy dog eyes on me again!

"Scorp you big softy, where'd that come from? I know you care but you don't need to try and control all of my life, because, trust me, I'm not going to let you do that" I justified, getting up and giving him a hug.

“Don’t you think transfiguration was really interesting today?” Scorp asked, smirking as if he knew he’d won. The cheek! Oh well.

I went to answer but as I parted from Scorp and stole a look at Al and Livy, nice and snug there guys, whispering to each other, looking back at Scorp I found that he was watching them all the same... We’re so nosey. I sat back down, claiming the chair this time to ensure that I didn’t take another tumble; Scorp then chose to sit on the armchair leaning against the back of the chair.

“Why can’t they just realise they’re perfect for each other” I commented leaning down to talk to me quietly so they couldn’t hear.

“I don’t know. Hopefully soon” Scorp replied.

“Yeah, preferably before I have to meddle!”

“Let’s hope so! Oh, there looking back. So Rosie, what about that potions essay?”

“IT WAS TORTURE” Al decided, way to ruin your cute little moment there Al. Good going!
