Love at first bite?

Harry was munching on some Wotsits when the rest of the D.A. arrived at number 12 Grimmauld Place. Hermione, Ron, Luna, Ginny and her string of boyfriends moved swiftly into the hall.

"Ginny for goodness sake, there isn't room for all these boyfriends of yours!" Harry shouted across the hoard of people.

"Shut up Harry; don't get your Firebolt in a twist." Ginny replied, and began 'sucking face' with her nearest boyfriend.

Harry sighed, waving the vast number into the kitchen, where Sirius was waiting with orange juice and crumpets. His black hair was tangled in a hairnet and his normally scruffy clothes were covered with a 'kiss the cook' apron.

"Hello everyone!" Sirius beamed "I hope you enjoy the refreshments, I will apologise now if you find any hairs but the hairnet doesn't work very well."

All those who had taken bites out of the crumpets, promptly spat them out after this word. But Luna continued to nibble away acting as if she hadn't heard a thing.

"Well it seems someone is appreciative of my hard work!" Sirius grumbled, throwing down his apron. "It's the last time I cook for anyone ever again!"

The room cheered, as Sirius took his seat between Luna and Hermione.

Sirius turned to Luna who was taking her third helping of the crumpets.

"Do you really like them?" Sirius asked.

"Yes" replied Luna, stuffing the crumpet in her mouth.

"WOW! Someone does like my cooking! I will not give up now that someone is on my side, I'll cook forever if I have to, just to persuade the rest of you!"

The group groaned at this remark, staring at Luna with disdain.

"So what is your name?" Sirius inquired.

"Lovegood, Luna Lovegood."

"What a beautiful name." Grabbing Luna's hands and staring into her eyes he cried "Luna will you be my muse?"

"Alright" she answered, staring blankly back at him.

"Brilliant! I should start straight away!" Sirius exclaimed. Grabbing his apron, he was about to put it on when he heard a cough.


The cry came from Harry who was now panting from the outburst.

"Fine then." Sirius said, angrily slamming down on his chair.

The meeting went on for several hours, boring everyone half to death and sadly killing Hermione. But no one noticed. Especially not Sirius who was planning his next cooking experiment with great enthusiasm.

As the group began to break up, and Hermione's body was pulled away by Kreacher, Sirius and Luna were the only ones remaining.

Luna was reading her copy of The Quibbler, while Sirius cleaned away the plates.

"You're a dog aren't you?" Luna asked, her nose still firmly stuck inside her magazine.

Sirius dropped the plates and twirled quickly towards Luna.

"How did you know?" Sirius asked, flabbergasted.

"Well you have a tail."

Sirius turned his head, noticing that in plain sight was his bushy black tail.

"Oh dear how embarrassing." He whispered, throwing his apron over it.

"Don't worry, my dad says that people with tails are the best cooks in the world. He wrote an article about it."

Sirius blushed, but as he was about to reply, Luna began floating through the air and out the window.

"Goodbye and thanks for the crumpets!"
