So, here's the bonus! It's more of a drabble, to be honest -it's only 308 words, which still does, however, bring this thing up to about a thousand words nicely.
I took the prompt enchant for this one, and whisper still factors in, of course.
I'm also going to submit this for week 6 of the 52 Weeks of Writing competition (prompt: blurred) because it actually fits.
So, yeah. I hope you enjoy (especially Being A Wallflower, to whom this is dedicated to).
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter.
Lily couldn't catch her breath as James twirled her around on the dance floor.
She let out a breathless laugh –just one of the many that she's let out tonight –as she span right back into James' arms.
"Have I told you how beautiful you are tonight?" James asked, in the pause between the end of one song and the beginning of the next.
"I believe so," Lily replied, "but I wouldn't mind hearing it again."
James laughed, and Lily found herself caught up in the sound. It was so enchanting –no, he was so enchanting, and Lily found herself riveted. Out of the corner of her eye, she caught Alice and Mary staring; even though they'd gone public with their relationship a week before, no one had been able to catch them together until now. She had James' invisibility cloak to thank for that.
"You're beautiful," James whispered in her ear.
She felt a smile stretch across her face, and as the next song started and he began leading her around the dance floor once more, she laughed. "So are you," she returned, grinning broadly.
His eyes caught hers, and they held them in a way that's almost magic. He wore a playful smile, and Lily found herself breathless and enchanted by the boy she'd hated for the past six years once more.
He leaned down to kiss her, and though it was short, it was enough to complete the moment for Lily.
James led the transition between the kiss and the rest of the dance fluidly –when they broke apart, they were already spinning and gliding across the dance floor again, and Lily couldn't even tell where the first action blurred into the next.
As the song ended and James twirled Lily back into his arms, he whispered in her ear, "Not as beautiful as you."
