Harry didn't know what he was doing. Why was he standing outside Dumbledore's office, holding a large package of socks and a solitary pair of wool socks. The war was over, Voldemort was defeated and the wizarding world was once again at peace. Harry now felt extremely foolish standing outside Dumbledore's office. Harry took a deep breath and then started to name various Honeyduke's candies, trying to figure out what Dumbledore's password was. The Gargoyle came to life when Harry said 'Cockroach Clusters.' Harry jumped on the top step and left the stairs raise him up to Dumbledore's actual office doors. Harry prepared to knock, but the doors opened before he had the chance.
"Welcome Harry, how can I help you today?" Dumbledore asked not getting up from his chair.
"Professor I wanted to give you something," Harry said nervously.
"You did? Lemon Drop?" Dumbledore asked.
"No, thank you and yes," Harry answered looking down.
"Should I try to guess what you want to give me?" Dumbledore asked his eyes sparkling behind his half-moon spectacles.
"Uh, no. These are for you Professor Dumbledore," Harry said and set the package of socks and the wool socks on Dumbledore's desk. Professor looked at the socks and then looked at Harry and began to laugh. "I didn't know what size you were, but I figured you could use magic to make them fit or something," Harry explained, not looking at Dumbledore.
"Thank you Harry," Dumbledore said still laughing.
"You're welcome Professor. I remembered you saying that you could never have too many socks, in my first year. I wasn't sure if you were joking or not, but I wanted you to know that I did pay attention. So, I got you socks, instead of books like everyone else," Harry said looking at Dumbledore sheepishly.
"Thank you Harry. I appreciate it," Dumbledore smiled.
"Again you're welcome professor. I better go I have to pack and start house hunting," Harry said and turned to leave Dumbledore's office.
"Good luck," Dumbledore said.
"Thank you Professor," Harry smiled and left the office, the doors closing themselves behind him.
"Now I'll see myself exactly as I am now in the Mirror Of Erised," Dumbledore smiled after Harry left the office.
"Albus you seem in high spirits today," Professor Minerva McGonagall said when she saw Dumbledore at dinner.
"Yes, I am Minerva. Harry gave me socks," Dumbledore smiled.
"Socks Albus?" McGonagall asked.
"Yes, Minerva socks," Dumbledore laughed.
Tell me did it suck or was it funny? Please let me know what you think.
