A/N:Sorry for the delay, but I had many distractions and lost track of the story. Be happy to blame it on me. I hope u njoy this chapter.


Cho and Rachel made their way to the hotel to take some rest before going out for dinner. Mathew will be meeting them at the lobby at 7:30. Cho was really looking forward to it. Rachel left Cho, carrying Michelle in her arms.

Cho lied down in the bed thinking whether she should talk to Mathew about his past life. He had said he had been here for seven years, but she should not go fast with him. He clearly does not remember who he is, or what potential he has. She must not scare him off by telling him straight away he is a wizard. She has to get his confidence first.

She took a bath and picked up a blue shaded summer dress. She put on light make-up with her wand and stuffed it in her bag. She left her long black hair open, framing her face.

Cho made her way to Rachel's room. Rachel was talking to a lady in pin-striped uniform. She waved to Cho and gave some instructions to the woman and left.

"I hope Michelle would be fine. I'm worried of leaving her alone in a new place like this. But she is the best baby-sitter in town, according to herself," Rachel said smirking.

"Don't worry, she would be fine. Lets enjoy the day," Cho said smiling.

Mathew was waiting down dressed in a black tee and jeans. He smiled at them and offered both his hands to the ladies.

"Ready ladies, for a wild night," Mathew said as they walked to the club.

"I guess, if you could manage," Rachel said grinning.

The club was in full swing. People were dancing wildly in the dance-floor, some were talking to their friends. The three made their way to the bar table.

"Ladies, this is Andy, and Kevin, my crime partners," Mathew said pointing at two handsome guys. "Guys, this is Cho and Rachel," he added.

"Pleasure meeting you," Kevin said, shaking hands with both of them.

"Care for a dance, the music is getting wasted," Andy asked smiling at Rachel.

"Sure," Rachel said, a bit surprised, but getting up.

They ordered their drinks and saw Rachel and Andy dancing together. Soon a girl, Kevin's girlfriend as Mathew said, pulled Kevin to the dance floor.

"Don't you think we should also go, I mean, am sorry, wanna dance," Mathew asked, embarrassed by his abruptness.

"Ok," Cho said adjusting her dress and getting up.

"I had a really great time today, thank you Matt," Cho said, standing outside her room. It was past midnight and Cho was really tired from dancing, though she enjoyed it a lot. Rachel had left the place earlier to check on Michelle.

"My pleasure, young lady," Matt said, bowing slightly and winking. She looked at his eyes and got lost in that emerald gaze.

"Goodnight Matt," Cho said. Before she could resist herself, she kissed him lightly on the cheek and closed the door behind her.

The next few days Cho spent most of her time with Matt in the beach swimming, scuba-diving, surfing, and of course, chatting. Matt had even convinced her to go for snorkeling. She was cringing at the site of so many fishes coming around her, but she felt a fearless warmth being with Matthew.

She had become good friends with Matt, but there was always a guilty feeling. She still hadn't figured out how she was going to tell Matthew about his true identity.

After some days…

"Cho, how about a walk on the beach?" Matthew asked Cho, as they were coming back from Hawaiian-style party. It was late in the night, and the atmosphere was slightly windy.

"A walk on the beach?" Cho asked.

"If you're up for it," Matthew said, hoping that she was.

"I'd love that, actually," she said, sitting down on the bench. "Let me take these sandals off first."

"Good idea," Matthew said, sitting beside her and taking off his shoes as well.

"It's really amazing out here," Cho finally said when they made it to the water's edge. "I can see why you'd never want to leave."

"It's my home now," he answered with a shrug. "I couldn't imagine living anywhere else."

"I'd like to feel that way," Cho said quietly.

"Pretty deep conversation, isn't it?" Matthew asked her, after he told her more about the fun of living in this island.

"Yes," she said with a laugh. "I know it sounds strange, but I feel like I can tell you anything. I mean, I feel like I've known you forever. Funny, isn't it?"

Matthew shook his head. "I don't think it's funny at all. I-I feel the same way about you."

The breeze was starting to pick up and Cho was fighting a losing battle to keep her straight, black hair from her face. She reached up to pull a strand behind her ear, but Matthew beat her to the punch. His hand lingered on her cheek and for the longest time, he looked into her eyes. Cho shivered, but it wasn't because she was cold.

"Cho," Matthew whispered, before leaning in and kissed her tenderly.

Cho didn't know what she was doing. One moment, she and Matt were walking along the beach, having a deep conversation and the next moment, they were kissing. She couldn't remember if she was the one to make the first move or if he did? She didn't really know and at the moment, she didn't care. The only thing she really knew was that she didn't want him to stop. This felt much too good to stop.

When they finally pulled away from each other, Cho felt breathless and dizzy. He was staring into her eyes with such intensity that Cho wanted to look away, but she couldn't.

"You're shivering," he said softly.

"I'm cold," she whispered. "I always get cold when I'm nervous. Well, that's one of the things I do when I'm nervous. I also babble, but you know that already. I can't…."

Matthew laughed. "You don't have to apologize. I think it's cute when you babble."

Cho blushed. "No one has called me cute since I was a baby."

"Okay, I think it's adorable when you babble," Matthew said cheekily.

"That's a new one for me as well," she said with a laugh.

"You are adorable and cute and beautiful," he said, touching her cheek. "And if no one's ever told you that before, they're blind."

Cho's cheeks reddened even more at this. He tucked a strand of hair behind her ear and his hand returned to linger on her cheek once again.

"You don't have to be nervous with me, Cho," he said softly. "If I did something to make you feel uncomfortable…"

Cho shook her head vehemently. "You didn't. It was a nice kiss, actually. Quite nice, really... I-I liked it."

Matthew smiled. "So did I."

He leaned in and kissed her again, this time with much more intensity. Her arms looped around his neck and she gasped into his mouth as he pulled her even closer. It wasn't close enough, though. Cho was feeling so reckless right now and she'd never felt that way before in her life. Well she had once, that was when she was in her 5th year. But come again, it was the same person she had kissed. She was losing control and she could care less. This felt so right, so good.

They pulled apart after sometime. They saw the waves coming closer and closer.

"I think we should go back home, Matt. I'm really knackered."

Matthew nodded. "If that's what you want…"

Cho kept remembering the first kiss she ever shared with Harry in her 5th year in her mind over and over as she and Matthew slowly made their way back to her room. The night air was cool and Cho was shivering. Was it her imagination or had they been on this beach for hours? It had only been minutes, she knew, but the uncomfortable, awkward silence made it seem like an eternity.

"Here," Matthew said, breaking her away from her thoughts. He was handing her a jacket.

"Thanks," she said, putting it on. "It's a bit chilly…"

They had reached her room and kissed again, but recovered soon.

"Good night, Matt," Cho said.

"Good night," Matthew said warmly, as she closed her door.

Cho fell on her bed, quickly changing into her night dress. The last few days in the island had been the best. She has been going out with Matt almost daily now. She could almost see the sparks between them, and there was no denial to the fact that he was attracted to her as much as she was. They had kissed tonight for the first time and she already cant wait to kiss him.

It felt great and life was never better for Cho. It was like falling in love again…..with the same guy. Now she had a half mind to tell him about her true identity and his scattered past. She knew she was being selfish, but she was scared. She was scared of loosing him again. She had already lost him twice, once because of her stupidity in school and second time, after the fight with You-Know-Who. She cant bear the pain of loosing the only person she has ever loved.

What if he forgets about her once he is back in the magical world? What if he doesn't remember the life in Hawaii? She knew she was being stupid, but now she was ready to sacrifice anything to be with him, to love him and to be loved by him. She was ready to live like a muggle with him. She didn't care if it was Harry Potter or Matthew Evans; she just loved that green-eyed man with the messy black hair.
