it could be like we never knew each other at all

A HariPo freeverse piece

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. I also don't own the OC, Ravenclaw Aaralyn Doves; she belongs to my FFN twin, Morghen, but I have permission to use her. So I hope you enjoy this, Mor—this is a belated present to celebrate your 100th fic!

:) Sad, but still…you've conjured a compelling duo, Morghen, as embarrassed of It Doesn't Really Matter as you might be. And, people, check out the original sources of Regulus/Aaralyn in Morghen's works, It Doesn't Really Matter, "Wishing on Stars," and "Open Those Grey Eyes." Happy one-whole-year-on-FFN & 100th fic, Mor! XD

Thanks for reading and please review!
