"Hey Colin. What's up?"

Colin looked up from his bed to see his brother looking down at him. He shrugged.

"It's nothing," he said and Dennis rolled his eyes.

"You're upset because Harry Potter is dating Cho Chang and not you," he said and Colin looked up sharply. "Thought so."

"How did you know?" he asked grumpily and Dennis shrugged.

"How could I not?" he replied and he sat down beside him. "Look, Colin…" he paused and frowned. "I know that he's, well Harry Potter. But…" he paused once more as he struggled to find the right words to say.

"It's alright Dennis," Colin said leaning back, "It was always a long shot. He's an amazing, powerful, handsome wizard and I'm just..." He paused, lost for words.

"You're just my awesome big brother," Dennis said with a smile. "And the fact that he doesn't realise how awesome you are is his loss, not yours. Besides, you never know. He might come around one day."

"I can hope," Colin said with a small smile.

"Boys, dinner!" their mother yelled up to them and they both stood up.

"Hey Dennis," Colin said and Dennis looked at him. Thanks."
