Drabble 30: VictoireLorcan
It was storming the day that the Weasley family was meant to have a fireworks show.
Everyone seemed upset, panicking, but the only girl who didn't seem to mind stayed outside, taking shelter under a tall willow tree. It was a while before anyone dared to join her, but finally, someone came and sat down beside her.
"Victoire, what are you doing out here?" Lorcan asked skeptically, falling into the grass beside her.
"I like the storm," Victoire sighed, letting the wind blow her hair back. "Why are you out here? Shouldn't you be inside with your precious little girlfriend Lucy?"
"She's not my girlfriend," Lorcan laughed. "That's ridiculous; she's two years younger than me."
Frowning at him, Victoire mumbled, "Teddy's two years older than me, you know."
"Oh, sorry," Lorcan found himself blushing. "If you don't mind me asking, what's going on with you two, anyway?"
"I do, actually," she replied briskly, "but whatever. We've broken up because he wants to see other girls." There seemed to be a storm raging in her bluebell coloured eyes as well as outside of them, and she turned so that she wasn't facing him as she watched the storm, her hair still blowing. Absently, he thought that she was incredibly beautiful.
"Do you want to see other boys?" he prodded, feeling annoying but not actually caring. For whatever reason, he was curious.
She turned to look at him, her blue eyes sparkling, before she leaned in so that her face was an inch from his. Closing the distance between them, she pressed her lips to his and whispered, "Maybe. I'm not sure yet, though."
Chuckling, he stood up, dusting off his pants and pressing one finger to his lips, where hers had touched his for the first time. With a wink, he said, "Tell me when you're sure."
The storm rumbled, far off in the distance.
