Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 The Art of Good Hygiene

"Tip number one is: never, ever smell like that lot" - I gesture to them with my thumb -  "if you want to keep any girl around for more than a few seconds."

2 The Art of Being Bold

"The key is simply to be bold and take risks. When she's feeling low, console her and cheer her up. If she turns you down, don't be afraid to give it another go. Girls love blokes who care enough to stand outside their window with a boombox playing a romantic love song."

3 The Art of Using PMS in the Right Context

"You'd think it was her time of the month or something." I wanted to remind him that because she's also part werewolf, that saying is allegorical, but I manage to hold my tongue and let him have his moment. "If you value your life, you won't let her catch you saying that," I tell him wisely.

4 The Art of Maintaining Eye Contact

He's watching me steadily. I'm highly aware that his hand is still lingering just below my ear. The late evening air ripples through his hair and washes over my body. He's leaning towards me and, at first, I think his eyes are starting to close that way eyes do before a kiss. But then I realize that he's actually looking down. "My eyes are up here, Malfoy,"

5 The Art of Friendship

"You don't want to know," Scorpius says. I don't want to know? Of course I want to know! I just asked about it, so I'd clearly been hoping for an answer. People don't just go round asking questions just for the heck of it. I don't think.

Well, unless you're seven. Everything's a bloody mystery when you're seven.

6 The Art of Giving (Proper) Compliments

"Just go up to her and give her a genuine, old-fashioned compliment. But don't give one on anything everyone else compliments her on. Let her know you actually pay attention to her, and aren't just jumping on the bandwagon of clichè compliments."

7 The Art of Keeping It Casual

Thus, Scorpius (much to my dismay) takes the reigns on the situation. "Here, let me handle this one," he tells me, steering Ly back to face Dom, who's crossing the common room. "Be casual. You don't want to smother her; chicks don't like that as much as you think."

8 The Art of Remembering the Little Things, Pt I

After a moment of thought, I sigh. “Alright, well, if you want to win her over for good, remember the little things about her. Things like her favorite flower, chocolate, perfume, or song, whatever. Go nuts. The more grandiose the gesture, the more she’ll love you for it. Girls love blokes who can show that they’ve actually been paying attention to them all this time,”

9 The Art of Remembering the Little Things, Pt II

Lucy falls back onto her bed with an exhale. “I don’t know. I suppose I just think… well, Scorpius may have had a point.” I narrow my eyes. “Lu, you hate Scorpius with the passion of a thousand suns,” I remind her. “You told me this yourself.”

10 The Art of Remaining Calm

“You’re trying out?” She says this as though it is a surprise.

Which I suppose it is, seeing as I never got around to telling her about it. Not that it was at the top of my to-do list anyway. Anyroad, she says it as though it’s an enormous surprise – like a Queen Bee would say to someone that belonged to the farthest recesses of the food chain.
