Seamus Finnegan ran full pelt down what must've been one of the darkest and dingiest corridors in the entire world he didn't know what he was running to or for that matter what he was running from. The ceiling was just out of sight and the edges of the walls and floor disappeared into darkness. Something was about to happen one way or the other whether the thing behind would catch up or he'd reach the something in front. A corner loomed up in front of him, only just swerving in time to stop a head on collision; he felt his shoulder smash painfully against the corner of the wall, his speed not totally allowing him to miss it completely, crying out in pain he felt the bone pop from it's socket, he closed his eyes from the stars that danced in front of him, and felt a cold hand close over his ankle and pull him backward…
"AAHHH!!!!" Seamus yelled sitting up straight in bed, looking around he saw he was laying in bed in the Gryffindor boy's dormitory the moon spilling in through the window and laying across his bed along his legs. His fellow fifth years stirred and looked at him.
"Yeah I thought I was the only one had nightmares in here." Harry Potter joked rearranging his bedclothes.
Neville Longbottom also asked if he was alright, a snore simply came from behind Ron Weasleys tightly drawn drapes, Seamus looked at them bewildered still trying to decipher between the dream and reality he blinked and attempted to smile, to Seamus it felt tight and shaky, but the others simply saw Seamus's usual Irish grin.
Pulling on his black robes, he walked through to the boys bathroom, he peered into the mirror over one of the sinks, a pair of large blue eyes looked back at him, they were red-rimmed and tired looking, splashing cold water on his face seemed to help if only a little next he ran a brush through his sandy blonde hair, his only feature that he actually liked, he was slightly short for his age, but with a good build, his once skinny child's body had matured into a more muscular teens body and his already prominent cheek bones stood out more against the lack of tan that he had that year, his fringe, one side a little longer than the other fell across his forehead and he constantly had to brush it out of the way, the rest of his hair was cut much shorter close to his head.
Grimacing at his reflection he pushed away from the porcelain sink and headed down the spiralling staircase to the Gryffindor common room. Finally letting his mind wander to the dream he closed his eyes for just a second and took a deep breath, sitting down before the fire, thinking, "Well I hope to God it's not a premonition dream." He'd had the same dream for months now ever since the start of term, when Harry took up with Cho, dreams realized, Ron finally started dating Hermione, Neville asked Hannah Abbot out on a date and even Dean deserted him by going steady with Lavender Brown Seamus was… lonely not that he'd admit that not even to himself, and the dreams just meant he had one more headache to contend with, and they meant he didn't look his best if he ever did ask a girl out, needless to say Seamus would've given pretty much anything right then for a nice bit of vodka.
He didn't see her sitting in the shadows her back against the wall one tear slowly making it's way down her cheek, if Seamus was lonely she was lonelier, she watched him sit down, she'd been noticing him a lot lately, the way his sandy hair caught the light, the way he laughed the cute Irish accent he had, but mostly the deep blue eyes. She held no hope he'd ever notice her, it was just another crush that would die just another unrequited love.
Looking up suddenly he looked straight at her, his deep blue eyes meeting her brown ones, seconds passed he didn't break the contact he held it and her heart beat faster.
"No shit." He said quietly running a hand through his hair.
She smiled and sat up straighter, "Alright so I am, what's it got to do with you?"
"I don't know." She replied honestly, "Sometimes I just start to cry don't you?"
Ginny and Seamus jerked away from each other instantly Seamus turned and ran his hands quickly over his face, standing he looked toward the stairs.
Ginny and Seamus replied at the same time, Ginny saying "Couldn't sleep." And Seamus, "I er, was gonna go to the library for revision."
