Chapter Four

Harry looked around at the assembled D.A. members. "Guys, I need a favor."

News of the Potions incident had spread throughout the stone corridors like fiendfyre, and everybody that had been in the Great Hall when the flowers had arrived had been sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting for the next gift. Luna Lovegood stood atop the Ravenclaw table, holding a pansy, and smiling. "Dear Maiden, I'm glad that you liked the bracelet. Now, I believe that I owe you an explanation. The first charm to the right of the clasp, is a snake wrapped around a lion. It symbolizes you and I."

Justin Finch-Fletchley stood atop the Hufflepuff table, also holding a pansy. "The purple stone, is an amethyst, and it symbolizes that I will do everything in my power to protect you."

Hermione Granger stood on the Gryffindor table. "Whether that be from evil, good people with the wrong ideals, or from yourself on the days where you think that you have no way out."

A first year Slytherin stood on the table of snakes. "The charm of the pansy, is of course because of your name, but also because I love you the way you are. And under no circumstances do I ever want you to change the way you are."

Murmurs drifted across the crowded room, the 'secret admirer' loved Pansy Parkinson? And he, or she, was a Gryffindor? Cho Chang stood on her house table. "The charm of the butterfly symbolizes the way that my stomach gets, whenever I'm around you."

Colin Creevey joined Hermione on top of the Gryffindor table. "The emerald is there for many things. I picked the biggest, most beautiful one that I could find, with the firm belief that it could never come close to being as gorgeous as you are."

"The ruby charm is shaped like a heart, because like mine, it is yours."

"The sapphire charm symbolizes how often, when the weather permits it, you are outside lying by the lake, looking like a reincarnation of Aphrodite herself."

Peeves appeared in the middle of the room, for the first time that anybody had seen him looking serious. "The empty spaces are charms that I intend to add in the future, even if you don't want to be in mine after you find out who I am, which hopefully you would be willing to learn, on the fifteenth. If you wear my scarf to lunch on that day, then we will meet for dinner at a place to be disclosed in the future where not everybody is listening."

An envelope appeared in front of Pansy, and hovered in the air a foot away from her face. "Until then my love."

"I need you to help me with something."

"What do you need?

"Tomorrow, if I say anything that confuses you, I need you to just go with it!"

"Okay, I guess."

"Thank you."

"You're Welcome."
