Ginny and Luna – Candy Cane Pops
Word Count: 150


When Ginny was ten years old and brought Luna over to her house for the holidays, the first thing that Luna looked at were the candies that Mrs. Weasley had made. They were little marshmallows coated with chocolate, with a candy cane sticking out of the top of each one, and Luna's eyes looked like they were about to pop out of their sockets when she saw them. She leaned over the tray, staring.

"What are they?"

"Just sweets." Ginny picked up one by the candy-cane hook and handed it to Luna. "Try it."

Luna stuck it into her mouth immediately. She bit into the marshmallow and chocolate and a look of absolute joy crossed her face.

"This is good," she mumbled through the candy. "Daddy never makes anything like this."

"What about your mum?"

"My mum's dead," Luna said, so matter-of-factly that Ginny didn't register the meaning at first.
