I did this for WitAngerandBravery's Hunger Games Quote Challenge. The quote I used here is "And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me." I use it once but I changed it slightly and then I used it again with nothing changed in it. This is in no way to be slash, so you all know. Hope you enjoy! This time it's a happy one-shot! ^^
It was the summer before their fifth year and the three boys were over at Blaise's house in Italy. Draco and Harry were staying over till school started again. This particular evening the boys decided to go on a walk in the nearby town. Draco didn't like the idea of walking through the town but Harry did so Draco went along with the two into the town.
While they walked Draco began to complain about how the girls stared at his friends and him. Blaise glanced at Draco but said nothing as Harry pointed out interesting things along the road. "Don't want to ruin the trip for him. Do you?" Blaise whispered to Draco as Harry went further ahead.
"Of course not," Draco said calmly. "We should catch up to him before we lose him." Blaise looked at him and with a quick nod walked up to where Harry was leaving Draco behind. Draco walked up to the two not quite happy about being left behind.
Harry stood near a street vendors cart his eyes wide. "Look Blaise, Draco it's a puppy!" Harry exclaimed happily. Draco knelt down to look at the puppy, Blaise just chuckled. "We know what a puppy is, Harry," both Draco and Blaise said with a smile.
"Well, yeah you know that," Harry said embarrassed, his cheeks turning a light pink. "I just wanted to show you the puppy." Blaise asked the street vendor in Italian if Harry could hold the puppy, the street vendor said yes. Blaise gave the puppy to Harry so he could hold it. The puppy had black fur like Harry's hair; it had gray eyes like Draco's. "The street vendor said the puppy is a girl," Blaise told Harry.
"I want her," Harry said as he hugs the puppy to his chest. "She is so adorable!" Blaise looked at Draco who was staring at both the puppy and Harry. "You like the puppy too, Draco?"
"Hmm," Draco said distractedly. Blaise looked at him, waiting for his words to sink in. "Oh, yeah I like the puppy," Draco replied, looking back to the puppy.
Blaise thought for a minute. The street vendor looked at the only Italian speaking person in the group- Blaise-; the vendor spoke to Blaise briefly before a smile formed on his face. "If you two are willing to share the puppy, than I am willing to buy the puppy for you two."
"Thank you Blaise," Harry said and then he gives Blaise a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through him. "Thank you Blaise," Draco said, quietly.
"You're welcome," Blaise said with a smile. "You guys want a collar for her?" The two nodded. "Oh and what are you going to name her?"
The two looked at each other. "I like the name Deja," Draco said.
"I like the name Hattie," Harry said. Blaise looked at the two and said, "Why don't you just combine the two names to make Deja Hattie?" He took the collar from the vendor and put it around the puppy's neck.
"Okay," the two said. The soon go back to Blaise's house so they can put the puppy in Blaise's room so they can walk in peace in the town, when they go back Draco and Harry are in high spirits as they walk through the town.
They go to the beach and somehow while they were there Harry got a scrape on his elbow making Blaise shake his head at seeing the scrape. And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me. "You should be careful Harry," both Draco and Blaise reprimand softly while they tried not to smile.
"I'm sorry about that," Harry said. "I'm really clumsy, I guess." The two nod in agreement before going to a restaurant to eat dinner.
As they eat dinner the three boys spot a group of girls walking into the restaurant. There were three girls in the group. The girl that seemed to be leading the group had a mini-skirt and a tank top on, she walked with a superior air to her, her dirty blonde hair loose behind her shoulders. The second girl was walking on the left side of the blonde haired girl. The second girl had purple highlights in her hair; she wore a hooded vest that shown her defined arms, and the girl seemed like the type who would beat up someone if they messed with her friends. The last girl had on a green dress that was above her knees, it was strapless and shown her perfectly tanned arms, she seemed to be confident enough to be with the group without feeling self-conscious about what she was wearing.
The third girl glanced their way, her eyes lit up as she saw Blaise. She spoke to him in Italian as she walked over to him, the other girls following her to the three. Draco and Harry looked at Blaise who was not saying anything. As soon as they girls got to them they girl began to speak in rapid Italian to Blaise. "Oh," she said softly, "they don't speak Italian."
Blaise shook his head, "No they don't speak Italian Alice."
"Okay," she replied with a smile. "Are you going to introduce us to your friends?"
Blaise nodded as he told the girls Harry's and Draco's names. He then said, "These are my cousins, the girl in the green dress is Alice, she can speak many languages. The girl in the mini-skirt is Delia; she likes the Hungarian National team's seeker Viktor Krum. Lastly the girl with the purple highlights in her hair is Rosario; she is Delia's younger sister."
Harry and Draco nodded politely at Blaise said about the girls. The girls soon returned to their table and the two boys began to bombard Blaise with questions about the three girls.
Hope you all liked it! Hope you likes Blaise's Italian cousins as well.
