Hearts are Funny Things

Luna smiled. She was finally a member of the D.A. She finally had friends who liked her! It was a wonderful feeling. Looking up, she saw Cho Chang walking down the hall towards the Room of Requirement. "Cho, what are you doing here?"

The older girl turned. "Oh, hi Luna. I was just thinking about joining. I'm glad to see you are too." She looked sad, but even so, she was still beautiful.

Luna nodded. "It's time for all of us to take a stand, and fight for those we love. This year will be a big one, very important regarding the War."

"Love's a funny thing," Cho whispered.

"It is, but hearts are funny things too. They always go after what we can't have."

Cho was silent. It was true, her heart had gone after Cedric, and now he was gone. And now, Harry was on her mind, and she just really didn't know what to do.

"But things will work out in the end, you'll see."

Cho scrunched her eyebrows up. "You love someone?" She didn't know that Luna was interested in anyone.

Luna blushed. "Well, it's a girl that I'm rather close with. She's actually in my house."

"Have you told her?"

Luna shook her head. "She's going through a tough time, but I know we'll end up together later on."

"How do you know that?" Cho asked, her heart racing.

"Because I do. She'll try and date someone else, but things won't work out. But we'll get together next year."

"How do you know the future?" Cho couldn't help but wonder who Luna was talking about. What Ravenclaw was going through a hard time? The only person she could think of was herself. Her eyes widened.

Luna smiled dreamily. "Because I'm a seer. I can see things no one else can. It's why I'm so strange I suppose."

Cho nodded, too surprised to even speak. She was mourning Cedric… was his death the thing that triggered her sexual preference? Would she really fall in love with Luna?

"Well, I'll see you at the next D.A. meeting," Luna said, giving her a smile. The blonde girl turned and walked away, humming slightly to herself.
