A/N: Oh my gosh! I am loving that I actually got a review from someone I didn't know! Even if it was only one person, it really made my day. So this chapter goes out to Kathryn42 for leaving me my first review from a stranger. Enjoy chapter 4!
Previously in "A Classic Love Story": I was Victoire, the oldest, the wisest, and the one who didn't cry over boys ever. I was the one who would punch a guy in the gut if he broke my heart. But this wasn't any guy. It was Teddy. I couldn't help myself. Silent tears ran down my cheeks. If I wasn't a veela, I would look horrible. My heart, which had been melted into a puddle of happiness 2 minutes ago, was now broken into icy shards.
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter, that all belongs to the fabulous J.K Rowling and Warner Bros. All I own is the plot and OCs.
I couldn't do anything except just sit in the abandoned prefect's compartment and cry. I guess I should've known someone would find me, but I really wasn't too focused on that at the time.
"Vic?" I heard a voice cry. I took my head out of my hands, tears still streaming down my cheeks. It was one of my best friends (who was a girl), Ella. She was actually in my year and a Ravenclaw. We had been best friends since Day 1. In fact, the only reason she didn't sit in our compartment was because she had mild claustrophobia and our compartment was more than a little crowded.
She was one of the few people who actually knew about my crush on Teddy. She, like Ali and Dom, had tried to get me to tell him my feelings. I guess I should have told Teddy my feelings before he broke my heart.
Ella had wavy brown hair and ocean blue eyes. She was really kind and a little bit quiet. She had a very slight frame and although she didn't play quidditch, she got unerringly vocal in her support of the Holyhead Harpies. When she met Aunt Ginny, who had played for the Harpies for a while, she just about died. I loved Ella to pieces; she and my other dorm mates were consistently there for me and never asked for anything in return.
"Vic what the hell happened to you?" she asked angrily. "Did Selwyn or Macnair do something to you? If they did I swear, I will hunt them down and—"
"It was Teddy," I whispered. There was no point in keeping secrets with my friends, they would always figure out the truth, and once they did they would tell each other. In fact, after I told Ella, I was sure that she would tell my other roommates, and my sister and Aliyah.
"What? The Teddy I know would never break your heart like this. Did you tell him how you felt and he didn't feel the same way?" she asked gently. Her saying that was enough for me to break down into tears again.
"Oh gosh," I heard her murmur. Louder she said, "Alright Vic, let's get you out of this compartment, alright? I ticket you don't want to go back to your own compartment?"
"Well then, I'll take you back to where I'm sitting. I'm with our dorm mates; they'll want to know what happened too."
She held out her hand and I took it. With her other hand, she grabbed her wand and cleaned the tears off of my face. The only evidence that I had been crying were my red eyes.
Luckily, we didn't meet anyone on the way back to her compartment. As we walked in, both of my friends greeted me.
"Hey Vic! What's up? Wait a minute, are those tears?" one of my best friends and one of my dorm mates, Hailey, asked. I had started crying again on the way back from the prefect's compartment without even knowing it.
"Vic, why are you crying?" my other dorm mate and another one of my best friends, Rachelle asked.
Before answering, I observed their faces. Rachelle, whose face was usually carefree and happy, looked taut with worry. Hailey, who was always kind to everyone, looked downright murderous.
Rachelle understood the stress of being part veela. Her mother was a veela, but once her father had found out, he had walked out on her and her mother and never looked back. She was an only child.
Rachelle had silvery-blond hair which went a bit longer than her shoulders. However, her hair looked like it was perfectly curled every day, while mine was always perfectly straight. She had big soulful green eyes, which were always sparkling. Her skin was pale and had no imperfections on it. Like me, she was always fighting off boys and had grown increasingly ruthless in fending off their advances.
Hailey was a half-blood; her father was the wizard. Her mother had always thought of magic to be something amazing. She constantly asked Hailey to do magic around her, but due to wizarding law, Hailey was not allowed. Hailey had short, spiky red hair. Her eyes were pale blue and showed off what she was feeling. She had freckles dotting her nose and cheeks. She looked more like Dominique than I did.
She wasn't quiet, but she was certainly a bookworm, and could often be found with her nose in a book. Up until fourth year, boys had flocked towards her, but after a nasty Bat Bogey Hex to Aaron Tompkins, most guys had gotten the sense to stop. That was the meanest I had ever seen her. She was always ready to help people, especially her friends.
I opened my mouth to tell them what had happened, but Hailey said,
"Wait, I'm going to get Domi and Ali. They deserve to know what's going on too. Don't start without me." My dorm mates, Dominique, and Aliyah, were all good friends and incredibly protective of me.
In her absence, Rachelle and Ella comforted me and told me it would be okay. I could tell how worried they were; they weren't used to me being this upset.
Hailey came back with Dominique and Aliyah. All three of them were running as quickly as they could. Hailey opened the door, ushered Dominique and Aliyah inside, and then slammed it shut.
"What happened?" all 5 of them cried at the same time. I took a deep breath and drew in all of the Gryffindor courage that I had gotten from my father and never had a chance to use.
"It was after the prefect's meeting. I had gone to ask Teddy about the prefect schedule, because we had been paired together when he should've been paired with the Head Girl, Alexis Peyton." Aliyah nodded. She knew this part already. "When I asked why we were paired together he said he wanted to spend time with me and I hugged him. We hug all the time, so it wasn't out of the normal behavior for us."
"Go on," Rachelle said, her face showing no emotion, like it did when she was furious. I would hate to be Teddy right now.
"Then he kissed the top of my head and told me that it was no problem for him to switch around patrolling schedules. He put his hand on my face and just barely kissed me." I said, putting my fingers on my mouth, remembering how it had felt.
"Keep going!" Dominique urged.
"And then, somewhere along the way, it turned into snogging and I was so happy and I thought we were going to be together," I continued. I could feel my eyes become steely. I wasn't just sad anymore, I was mad. Very mad. "He had to ruin it, though. He broke away from me and told me he shouldn't have done it and ran away, leaving me alone, and heartbroken."
Dominique was the first to say anything.
"When I see him, I will castrate him. If he thinks he can get away with hurting my sister like that…" she hissed, trailing off. I knew she was thinking of all the things she wanted to do to him. It was heart-warming how much she was willing to do for me, even though Teddy was practically her family.
"Well, I for one will help you castrate him Domi," Hailey said.
"Agreed," Rachelle growled. Aliyah just nodded, her eyes cold. I couldn't say their anger surprised me; they had always been really protective of me. I would hate to be in Teddy's shoes. And then I said something that probably surprised everyone,
"Count me in."
A/N: Wow, everyone is so mad! I know this train ride is super long, but they'll be off the train in the beginning of next chapter, I promise! I solemnly swear to add some Teddy in the next chapter. This chapter is so long, I feel like I lost some of the details in it, so I apologize. Anyways, I have decided that I won't post the next chapter until I get 5 reviews ( , your review doesn't count). If I don't get 5 reviews, then well…I am not sure, but I'll still post it. So please Rate and Review! Reviews make me really happy!
