Written for xMissWitch's Achieve the Outstanding Challenge (Troll - next-gen - write a maximum of 200 words)
She was always the quiet one who liked to keep to herself. He was the twin who was loud, confident and too much like his great-great-grandfather. No one would think them a perfect match, but the moment he laid eyes on her he thought her the prettiest girl he had ever seen.
She didn't believe him; not when he approached her with ripped jeans and a t-shirt much too Muggle-like for a pureblood. Girls fawned over him inside and outside of the Hufflepuff common room. And she was just a plain, ordinary, not-so-attractive girl.
"Wanna go to Hogsmeade with me this weekend? As a date, I mean?"
He was forward – he always had been. Something about there being no point in beating around the tree.
"Say yes… please?"
She noticed something new in him – an odd emotion… fear… that she might say no? It was enough to make her smile and, for once, like the ripped jeans and his terrible Muggle-style choice.
"Okay," she said. "I'd love to."
And to her surprise, he kisses her… right on the mouth and in front of everyone. She surprisingly liked it.
I actually have a lot of head canon for Lucy and Lysander and I could ramble on forever about them and write a lot about them. Which I will. This was a struggle to keep to 200 words, so now that I've had a taste, I will write more!
