Finally the end of the year was in sight.
The Dancing and Music Co. won the championship in the first time in years!
The twins found a mirror that showed them their parents.
Both of them looked as if they would cry.
Suddenly the reflections of their parents moved.
Their mom stroked Harry's shoulder and their dad stroked Charlotte's hair.
Then he noticed the ring. He held her hand and looked at it. She smiled.
It was almost time for O.W.L.s. Charlotte and Malfoy studied together. Which was very difficult; because he was kissing up and down her neck every 5 min.!
" Malfoy stop!" she said "O.W.L.s count for most of our grades! You need to be serious!"
"OK I'll study" he said softly looking at his potions book.
He sneakily grabbed her hand and began doodling in her palm.
She looked at him and glared "I've rad the same sentence 15 times!"
The O.W.L.s were, in Charlotte's opinion,easy as cauldron cakes.
Prof. Snape told them to make a Anti-Boil Solution.
Prof. Flitwick had them have a pineapple dance.
The last one was for the most boring subject History of Magic.
Prof Binns had them write two rolls of parchment.
Afterwards Charlotte walkedwith Harry Ron and Hermione.
Both of the twins held their scars.
"What?" said Ron "They've hurt before."
"Not like this" said Charlotte "it's a warning..."
"...it means danger's coming." Harry's head snapped up "Char! You thinking what I'm thinking?"
"Yep." they both ran towards Hagrid's hut
As they slowed to a speed walk Ron had the breath to ask " What's going on?"
"Don't you see?"said Harry "All Hagrid's ever wanted is a dragon egg. And a stranger shows up with one."
Charlotte ran up to Hagrid "Hagrid who gave you the egg?"
"Don' know." he replied " but he did inquire 'bout Fluffy"
As they walked back to the castle Charlotte explained the person was Snape.
In they foyer Charlotte saw something alarming. Malfoy and Pansy were...were...KISSING!!!
"Nooooo!!" she wailed running to her bed.
A minute later she heard a knock. "Char..open up...please"
She opened the door snapped "go away!" before shutting the door in his face.
"Please Char. I didn't kiss her... she kissed me."
She opened the door and looked at him suspiciously "you swear?"
Charlotte walked into his arms
"I thought since you kissed me you'd break up with that smarty pants who doesn't love you like I do." said Pansy in a smug voice.
" I love him with all my might, heart and soul, Parkinson" Charlotte hissed "and for the record I am never speaking to you ever again!!"
"Both of us" Said Malfoy " Come on Char I have something to show you."
He led her down the hall to the dead end. He took out his wand and tapped the middle stone. The wall opened to reveal a bedroom
There was a queen four poster bed with a Hot Pink comforter and Royal Blue pillows. And Royal Blue curtains around it. Silver and Gold lined the walls. Two closets were on ether side of the bed, with dressing screens.
"It's beautiful! But where are we?" she asked mystified.
"This is our bedroom." he answered smiling
She glanced at him with a shocked look.
" I got special permission from Dumbledore and Snape" he explained with a laugh. "they helped me decorate."
Charlotte sat at the Gryffindor table at dinner
" I think next week we should go down the trap door ourselves" she said
After dinner Charlotte went to her new room.
The closet was filled with new and old clothes. One of the new ensembles was a Royal Blue nightgown. After changing she hung up her robes.
Both Charlotte and Malfoy emerged from behind their screens at the same time.
He wriggled one finger motioning her to come to him.
She did so willingly.
He kissed her gently, then picked her up bridal style, and carried her to the bed.
He tucked her in and went around the other side. He got in and pulled the rope shutting the curtains.
Malfoy pulled her to him and whispered " Sleep Charlotte."
She snuggled into him and closed her eyes, dreading the week to come.
