A HariPo drabble
Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. A sweet idea that came about from talking with a friend…don't even remember the subject! Anyway, this is for BlueMango. Read, review, and enjoy! *Note: no.2 in the Eyes of the Beholder series, though you don't have to read the first—"Decisions, Decisions"—to enjoy this.
So what that your stomach has settled with a taste on your tongue that isn't even there?
This is what happens every time he turns to look at you. No, not Hugo or Louis or James. Sure, their eyes are similar…but no, no, they're not. Fred Weasley—Freddie—doesn't just have brown eyes.
His eyes are food for your soul and, darling, you've never been more starved.
"Brown" sounds like such a drab color. And it is, isn't it? It's called a "neutral" by fashionistas. It's the color of dirty things, of vile things. It's…ouch…the color of scabs.
But hurt though it may sometimes to find him and laugh with him and stare back into his face, you find that his eyes have got so much to say about him. And it's right there in those chocolate orbs. Yes, chocolate, that melt-in-your-mouth substance that's been described in sensuous (and oft vulgar) terms.
His eyes are the chocolate to sooth your cravings, the coffee to fill your senses with their intoxicating aromas, and the dirt that smells so gritty and earthy and natural that you don't mind feeling like a beast sometimes when you think of what could happen if he were yours, all yours.
So what that your stomach has settled with a taste on your tongue that isn't even there? It's that itch you can't scratch—it's there, but it's not. It's… Oh, it's unquenchable, and if his eyes—full of laughter, of comfort, of warmth—really are mud or coffee or delicious melted chocolate, then perhaps he'll at least let you drown in them.
Yes, just this once…
…take that forbidden sip.
A little open-ended, so you may put whomever you like with Freddie. It could be Scorpius (he & Freddie make up an M&MWP found by me—see the bottom of my profile for details, thanks), it could be my buddy—Morghen's—OC Ziven (whom I have permission to use, thankies, Mor), or it could be you, dear reader, if you are in like/love with George's son.
So yah, Mango, for once you get Freddie. XD
Thanks for reading and please review!
Up next in the series: "The Coming Storm" :D
