Never

Teddy was in denial. His Aunt Hermione was the first to notice it, at a family gathering she'd had at her house. She'd voiced her opinions on it. Teddy claimed he didn't feel anything but brotherly love, and that it was never going to happen.

Never.

Louis bugged him about it, telling him to just go and snog her already. Teddy again claimed brotherly love, and anyway Lily was too young, and it was never going to happen.

Never.

Ginny brought it up, and thought it was adorable, and wasn't Teddy perfect for Lily. Of course it was meant to be! They danced all night together at Lily's graduation party, Teddy was already like family and had a respectable job, was a decent man with his head on straight (most of the time), what more could she want for her daughter? This time Teddy skipped the denial and ran for the hills, not coming back to his Godfather's house for close to three weeks. After all, Lily's own mother couldn't continue with this train of thought, now could she? Teddy was far too old for Lily, there was no way Lily would like a messy, prone to trouble (making) guy like him, with her almost flawless record, and clean-cut ways.

Never.

Never.

Nevernevernever.

Damn, he was a bad liar.
