Everything around me froze. I couldn’t stop staring at Oliver’s face when he said that I had to shag Cormac by the end of the night. Does he know who I am? Crazy I can do, but this.
This is mental!

On the other hand Fred looked just as shocked too. After he regained his composure he turned to Oliver, “What the hell Oliver?! You said Tiffany not Britney.”

“George and I agreed that it would be harder for you to hit up Tiffany, so we chose Britney for you.”

“Woah woah woah. Fair? You call this fair? No. If Ellie has to sleep with Cormac, then we get to choose who Fred has to shag.” Alicia got defensive.

“I agree. It’s only fair.” I replied. Those sick bastards are going to pay.

“Fine, who do you pick?” Fred asked looking slightly scared.

“Pansy Parkinson.” The four of us said at the same time. Fred scared look turned into a horrified one.


“Then you forfeit. We picked Pansy, so if you two don’t shag by the time everyone leaves, we win.” Katie shot back to Fred.

“No we agreed that you have to shag them by 2am. No later.” Oliver said.

Fred gave us all a look of disgust and stalked off. We all smiled. “Alright Elle, you can do this. Don’t worry, don’t panic. I mean, you were planning to lose your virginity to him anyway right?” Angelina had dragged us to a corner to talk.

“You’re right. This is for the good of the group. I can do this.” I said, but on the inside my little voice was telling me to run as far away as possible and to never come back.

“Then go talk to him!” Katie pushed me in his direction. I took a few steps towards him, then everything went black.

I woke up in a corner of the Hufflepuff common room with Katie, Alicia, and Angelina surrounding me. “Wh-What happened?” I asked holding my head. I had a shooting pain going through.

“You fainted.” Katie whispered. I shook my head and groaned.

“Guys, I lied, I can’t do this.”

“You think? Don’t worry, we’ve seen you sober and we’ve seen you drunk, so we know that you have a better chance getting him when you’re drunk.” Alicia said and pulled out a bottle of firewhiskey.

I groaned again and pushed her away, “I think I freakin’ have a concussion, I’m not

“Oh calm down.” Angelina said and she took out her wand. She pointed it at my forehead and I immediately felt better.

“What did you just do?” I asked rubbing my forehead.

“A healing charm. You’re all better, now get out there and win us this tiebreak!” Angelina handed me the firewhiskey and helped me up.

“Lord help me.” I whispered and brought the bottle to my lips.

“Ellie, are you sure you’re okay with this?” Katie asked with concern filling her eyes.

“Positive, it’s going to happen sooner or later, right?” I replied, hiding my shaking hands in my jean pockets. “I just have no idea how to do this.”

“We’ve got your back, 100%. We’ll be with you every step until that bedroom door closes.” Alicia smiled reassuringly.

“Leesh, you aren’t allowed to be helping us. Go party, we can handle it.” Katie said.

“I’m not going to be mediator for long after tonight. I don’t care that I’m going against the rules, at this point, I’m on your team.” Alicia glared at the boys who had each found a girl and were dancing with them. Fred already had his hands on Britney, and that got me mad.
Guys have it so much easier.

“Come here.” Alicia grabbed my wrist and pulled me closer to her. She untucked my shirt and unzipped it just enough so a peek of my black lace bra was showing. “Now go take a couple shots and I’ll get the slut off your man.” I stared back at her thinking she was talking about Fred. But I watched her make her way around Fred and towards Cormac. He was dancing with another girl, a year below us and a Hufflepuff.

I walked around for a few minutes looking for shots to take when Cormac came up to me.
“Hey you. Alicia told me you were looking for me.”

I smiled and said, “I hear that you are the top shot taker in your year, is that true?”

“It is, why do you ask?” He leaned in to hear me better, and I could smell the firewhiskey on his breath.

“I challenge you. I think I can take more shots than you.”

“You are so on.” He grabbed my hand (sending butterflies up my spine) and led me towards a table surrounded by people. “Make room! We got a shot challenger!” Cormac shouted to clear a path.

Sitting on either side of the table Cormac and I each had 6 shots in front of us. “Whoever finishes first wins!” Cormac told me. I nodded and got ready. “Ready? GO!” A bystander shouted towards us.

At once Cormac and I downed shot after shot. Less than 20 seconds later Cormac slammed his last glass down on the table just seconds before I could. “Shit!” I shouted in defeat.

“Damn, I’ve never seen a girl keep up as well as you before.” Cormac slurred his words.

I smiled back, “Then I guess I’m one of a kind.” At this point the alcohol was starting to set in and my confidence shot through the roof, just what I needed. “Let’s dance.” I said as a new song came on.

“What?” Cormac shouted, unable to hear me. Instead of replying I grabbed his hand and brought him into the mess of people dancing.

Without any hesitation Cormac pressed his body against mine and together we began to sway to the music. I reached up and ran my hand through his hair, then turned around so I was facing him. Cormac put his hands on my hips and moved them closer to his. As we continued to grind against each other, Cormac leaned down and whispered in my ear,
“You are gorgeous Ellie. How come I never noticed you before?”

“I’m not very outgoing. But recently, that changed.”

“And that’s not a bad thing.” Cormac smiled, “Wait, you’re that chaser on the Gryffindor team aren’t you?”

“You know what? You talk to much.” Then I grabbed his neck and pulled his lips towards mine. Once they connected he put his arms completely around me. Fireworks were going off in my head screaming, ‘Success! Win! He’s kissing back!’

We continued moving back and forth to the beat while we snogged, not caring about the heard of people dancing around us. It wasn’t until his hands began to wander when I felt self-conscious (Despite the alcohol flowing through my system). Just my luck someone bumped into Cormac spilling firewhiskey all over his back. Swearing he said, “Let’s take this back to our common room, what do you say?”

“Best idea we’ve had all night.”

As soon as we got through the portrait hole he attacked me. His lips crashed onto mine and his hands were all over my body. I jumped up and wrapped my legs around his waist and he carried me up to his dormitory. Once we were safely inside he laid me down on his bed and climbed on top. I took off his alcohol-drenched shirt and threw it on the floor.
“Careful El, that’s my favorite shirt.”

“It looked good on you, but it looks better on the floor.” I said as I started to unbutton his jeans.

His hands trailed down my zipper, exposing my stomach. “Oh El.” He moaned then pulled my head up to kiss him again.

“Ellie. That. Was. Amazing.” Cormac panted lying down next to me on his bed.
I turned towards him and said, “You weren’t too bad yourself. Now I know why everyone compares you to Oliver.”

“What do you mean?” He asked turning to face me.

“I’ve heard Oliver was good, and I’ve heard that you’re going to give him a run for his money. You two are basically legends in Gryffindor. Now I can confirm just how, special, you are.” I said with a wink.

“I’m honored that you believe that. I must say, you aren’t the little prude that everyone thinks you are.”

“Well that’s- wait, what?! What is everyone saying about me?” I almost shouted.

“Calm down Ellie. It’s just that you were never the type of person who went to parties or got drunk, or even hooked up with someone. But you certainly proved many of us wrong tonight.” Cormac replied getting softer and then finally leaning in for a kiss.

“No, don’t kiss me. I’m not happy about this. Cormac, I should go. Thanks for an awesome night though.” Before he could say another word I got out of his bed and began to look for my clothes.

“Ellie, don’t be like that. Come on, just ten minutes ago you were begging for round two!”

“Not anymore.” I said and all but slammed the door behind me.

“Oh my gosh you scared me.” I almost screamed when Fred, George, and Oliver appeared
out of nowhere when I got to the bottom of the stairs.

“You lose.”

“What are you talking about? It’s…..” I looked at my watch, “2:45.” My face fell, I couldn’t do it. I was too late.

“Lucky for you, I was able to complete my task.” Fred said and a pair of lacey red underwear out of his pocket and threw them at me.

“Ew. I don’t want those.” I threw them back at Fred.

“So we win. We want to keep all the rules of the bet."

I threw the three of them a dirty look and retreated to the girl’s dormitory where I was sure Alicia, Katie, and Angelina were waiting up for me.

“Those dirty cheating-“

“They didn’t cheat Alicia.” I cut her off in a monotone voice. “It’s completely fair.”

I had just finished telling the girls all about tonight and what happened, from the gritty details of Cormac and me to the awful defeat from Fred.

“So Alicia is still making the decision.” Katie grumbled.

“Unfortunately.” I replied, just as upset. I stood up and stretched, “I’m going for a walk.” I said and left the dormitory.

I walked down the stairs and out of the Common Room. As soon as I left the common room a hand clamped over my mouth and another hand wrapped around my waist. I was dragged behind a tapestry into a secret corridor. It was too dark to see who my ‘attacker’ was, but I was fighting with every ounce of my strength. Once I got my feet in place I grabbed the arm around my mouth and tucked my shoulder. I heard and ‘oomph’ and I opened my eyes to see Fred Weasley lying on the ground at my feet.

“Oh shit! Sorry Fred, oh, I’m so sorry. Are you okay?” I bent down to help him up.

“Damn Elle I had no idea you could do that.” Fred said rubbing his shoulder in pain. “I don’t think I ever want to get into a fight with you.”

I laughed weakly and put my hand on his shoulder. “You sure you’re okay? Want me to take you to Madam Pomfrey?”

“Elle, it’s 3 in the morning, no story would cover for what just happened. We aren’t even supposed to be out.”

“Oh shit, that’s right. Well, if it still hurts tomorrow I’ll take you.” I said still rubbing his shoulder.

“Okay, thanks Elle.”

“So, why did you scare the living crap outta me?”

“I sw you leaving and I was wondering if you wanted some company.”

“You couldn’t have been a normal person and asked me? Instead of being a super creeper?”

“Being a super creeper is more fun.” Fred responded with a wink.

I laughed, “It is until someone gets hurt.”

“Oh don’t be a party pooper.” Fred laughed.

“I am not a party-“

“What? What’s wron-“ “SH!” I whispered and put my hand over Fred’s mouth. Footsteps were slowing getting louder as what I assumed was a teacher, approached us.

“We need to get out of here.” I whispered and Fred nodded. He took my hand and dragged me down a corridor. He stopped at a tapestry and pulled it aside, revealing…a brick wall.

“Fred, this isn’t a time for games.” I whisper yelled at him, my hand growing sweaty in his.

“Trust me Elle.” He pulled out his wand and tapped a few bricks and then the wall slide away to reveal a small opening, just barely big enough for the two of us. “Get in.”
Fred and I both went in and he closed the wall and let the tapestry swing back to hide us.

“Wow, this is like a two way mirror.” I whispered in awe. We could clearly see the hallway, but they couldn’t see us.

“What’s that?” Fred asked.

“It’s like…it’s a muggle thing.” I chuckled to myself.

“Is that Snape?” Fred asked as the figure following us approached the tapestry.

“Yeah, I think it is. Damn, we’re lucky.”

“Sh!” I put my hand on Fred’s mouth again to shut him up. I didn’t let go until what felt like hours when Snape left. “Wow. That was insane.”

“Welcome to the night life Ellie.” Fred chuckled.

“Oh stop pretending you’re a badass. I know you still sleep with your childhood stuffed bear.”

“There’s nothing wrong with that!” Fred feigned a hurt look on his face.

“I didn’t say there was.”

“You implied it.”

Silence. Awkward, horrible silence. It also just occurred to me that I was still holding his hand. Quickly I let go.

“What? Afraid I have cooties?” Fred laughed and tried to take my hand again.

“No, how do we get out of here? It’s getting kinda hot.” I started feeling around the wall
we came in and then I felt Fred’s hands on my waist.

“Fred, what are you doing?” Just then his lips came down on mine. I pushed him away,
“Fred! What the hell.”

“Ellie, just shut the fuck up for five minutes and kiss me.” Not saying anything I searched his face to see if he was serious. What the hell, I was still semi drunk. Fred leaned in again and I met him in the middle.

I’m not expecting fireworks, or sparks, because whoever said that things like that exist when you kiss, has a serious mental problem. I have never experienced fireworks, and I know I never will.

After what seemed like seconds Fred pulled back. “We should get going if we ever want to wake up in time for lessons tomorrow.” I closed my eyes and leaned my forehead against Fred’s. “Ellie…” He whispered.

“I know, you’re right. It has to be like 3:30 by now.”

“Actually it’s half 4.”

“What?! We need to go. The girls are probably very worried about me.” I frantically said. Fred opened the wall and held the tapestry open for me. Together we ran back to the common room.

Before I went up my stairs and Fred his I stopped him, “Hey, don’t tell anyone about what just happened. Please?”

“I won’t I promise.” Fred smiled and pulled me into a hug.

We broke apart and departed to our separate dormitories.
