It started as an apology.
Inspired by GoF lol I love Viktor! w

Summary: Even after school ends Cedric stills finds the need to apologize about the Quidditch incident through letters. Only after a while, the letters aren't only for apologies.
The first letter came not two days into the summer vacation. A Beautiful eagle owl flew up to the window of the smallest bedroom at number four Privet Drive. The bars blocked the bird from getting in, so it pecked on the glass until its presence was acknowledged.
It wasn't long before a small pale boy with unruly black hair got up from his bed to see what had woken him at this ungodly time of 2:15. 'A messenger owl? What the hell?' He thought walking to the window, putting his glasses on lopsidedly. He had snuck his hand through the bars and relieved the owl of its burden, giving it one of Hedwig's owl treats. He looked at the letter as the bird flew off.
Dear Harry (wow, I never thought that I'd be writing to you over the summer!),
Hi Harry! I know you said that it was okay and all, but I couldn't help but feel bad about the Quidditch incident! I should've noticed something was wrong, and I really am sorry. I want to make it up to you, once I find out how that is.
Oh great! Harry nearly moaned out loud. Diggory wouldn't drop the stupid Gryffindor Hufflepuff match! Geez, he won, why couldn't he see that?
So yeah. How's your summer been going so far? Good I suppose? I know its rater early but have you started you're summer work yet? Dad made me do four of my classes so far. I know that this doesn't sound like Perfect amazing Pretty boy Prefect Cedric, but I am so booooored. All this work is so horrible! I just want to laze about and go play Quidditch. Shocker isn't it! But hey I don't let it bother me. I just let people see who they want to see. Granted some of what they see is actually me. Hmm.
Oh! Cho Chang has been sending me letters every few hours. Ugh! Honestly she's a sweet girl, but she's s annoying! For some reason, she's under the impression that her and I are dating. We sure as hell aren't! Oh my, sorry about that. Well, I did warn you. But anyways, I don't have the heart to tell her that we're not dating. Merlin Harry I'm sorry if I'm bothering you! I shouldn't complain and moan about my non-existent love life.
Did you hear about the Quidditch World Cup?! Dad got our tickets already! I'm so excited! Bulgaria vs. Ireland! I bet Ireland is going to win. :D Although I have to admit Krum has got serious talent! Hmmm but Ireland will win, you just wait. Ha-ha
I'm sorry if I've scared you Harry, but I wanted to apologize and, I dunno, I guess I wanted to talk to you and like get to know you. Although, when you read this, I'm sure you'll hate me. After all I had to wait until after my parents went to bed before I sent the letter. Dad would've made some kind of remark about the Quidditch game. Any who… I guess I'll talk to you later! I hope to get a reply!
P.S. Sorry I sent the letter so late!
Harry stared at the parchment in surprise. Cedric Diggory had sent him an apology letter, and tried to get to know him? Why on earth did he want to do that? 'I'll think about it in the morning' He decided putting the letter on his desk and laying back down on his bed, falling back into sleep.
When Harry woke up, for the second time, he had all but forgotten about the letter from Cedric. It wasn't until he was in the middle of changing when he noticed the letter on his desk. "I guess that I should write a reply just to be nice is all." He sighed.
"BOY!" His 'Uncle' yelled while banging on the door. "Get up and cook us breakfast!"
Harry sighed again; his reply would have to wait.
How many times do I have to tell you that you are forgiven before it sinks in? If you feel so bad and you want to make it up to me, you can do it by stopping with the apologies. I know you mean well, but I've already forgiven you!
My summer so far…has been good I guess. A lot more quiet than I'm used to. But it's a nice change. I've been fine I guess. I had a creepy nightmare the other day though. It has been imbedded in my brain!!! About my school work, school only ended like three days ago. And most of my homework is in my trunk…which is technically not in my possession. Oh well, I'll get it done though, even if I have to work all night during the first week back. B-O-R-I-N-G. Heh.
You and Cho aren't dating?! I could've sworn that you were this happy golden couple. You sure act like it most of the time. It's not bothering me, quite amusing really. I'm sorry, but to go from believing that the two of you were dating to it being one-side feelings or whatever it really makes me want to laugh. I also want to laugh that 'Perfect amazing Pretty boy Prefect Cedric' (seriously what the hell? That is the first time I've ever heard you be called that. Kind of funny how it's you calling yourself that.) Would honor me with insight of his love life. Non-existent or not.
Hmm, I seemed to have heard of this Quidditch World Cup of which you speak. And Pfft! Bulgaria will so win! Viktor Krum is like the best seeker in the WORLD. I'm so sorry to have to reveal this little fact to you, but we are far more inferior to the master. I think, or rather I hope, that I'm going to the Cup with the Weasleys and my other best friend Hermione Granger. I'm positive that Ron's father got tickets. This is going to rock! Although, with my luck, it'll only be a hope. Sorry about that!
I don't hate you, nor am I scared. Trust me it takes a lot to scare me, and I only hate two people in the world. You're too nice to get on that list. AND STOP APOLOGISING!!! I would like to talk/get to know you too. Merlin knows that it's too lonely here. Why don't we do a question and a fact thing? Like ask a question about the other person while giving a fact about ourselves so we get to know one another better.
Gotta go. Thank you
Fact: Heh when my cousin turned 11 we went to the zoo for his birthday, and I accidentally sent a python on him. It was an accident I tell you!
Question: What did you want to be when you grew up when you were younger?
Wow! I can't believe that you actually replied to my letter! I thought that for sure you'd be angry. I know that you have already forgiven me, but I cannot promise you that I'll stop apologizing. –Wink- But I will try.
I'm glad your summer is going alright. I'm very curious to know about this dream you had since you told me you don't scare easily. And how can you have your trunk but not have it? That confuses me. What is it like charmed so you can't get in it? You shouldn't have to do your homework when school begins. That's silly, when you can do it in the middle of summer and get it done. Speaking of which, I'm FINALLY finished with my work. I put my blood sweat and tears into it. Not literally, I don't think any teacher, well maybe Snape, would appreciate that.
I went swimming today. Just, letting you know. Yeah, I purposely neglected to watch where I was going and I ended up in a pile of guck. It was nasty! Cho came with us. And –sarcastic voice- thank you ever so much! It makes me feel so much better knowing your output on Cho's fantasy relationship –end sarcastic voice- I'm so glad I don't like women like that. You knew that right? Oh well. It's accepted in the Wizarding World you know, and I told Cho she lacked the parts I like on a body…she thrust her breasts into my face. Yuck!
Bulgaria? Puh-Lease! Ireland is definitely going to win. I can feel it. And do you know what Potter? It sounds to me like you have a crush! Wow, who'd known Harry Potter, hero-worshipped by almost the entire Wizarding world, Hero-Worshipped Viktor Krum. Although I have to agree with you on the fact that we mere Hogwarts seekers are nothing compared to Krum, but I will not sit and pray with you, or offer sacrifices or whatever you do. –Laughs like a maniac- I like the Weasleys, I'm glad they're coming. I'm glad you're coming too, we can talk in person. But why do think that you won't go?
Damn, I didn't scare you! I'll have to try harder then! =] beware!
And I like the question idea thing.
Oh no…Cho's here. HELP ME!!!!
Fact: I set my dad's hair on fire when I was five years old because he accidentally ripped the head of my teddy bear off.
Answer: Honestly, I wanted to be a wand. Then I could do magic without words or, technically a wand. Don't you dare laugh!
Question: Who do you hate and why?
lol do not ask, i had the urge to write this. oh well more soon.
