Chapter 4: The Test
Held Together By A Secret
Gray smiled, as she her legs ran down the common room stairs. It had been a month and a half since the school term started, and Gray had found that almost every night Rose fell asleep on the couch in Gay’s arms. It had become so common that half the Gryffindor house thought that the two of them were dating. She plopped herself into a chair, that rested near the fire, letting out a small sigh. She let her eyes gaze across the table, and let them rest on Gay, who was – for once – without Rose.
“She went to bed last night.” He said, not looking up from his book. He had stayed up with Rose that night, hoping that she would talk to him about what was bothering her, but unfortunately she hadn’t. She had decided that she was going to head upstairs, and fall asleep in her dorm bed, instead of falling asleep on him. Gay let out a sigh, letting his eyes drift to Gray. He knew it was her, they had a pattern. He got up first, then Gray, and last Rose. It was always this way in the morning. “Something is bothering her. I know something is.” He spoke softly.
“I know.” Gray replied, letting her gaze fall to the stairs. Rose was her best friend, but sometimes she felt like she didn’t even know her the way that others did. She knew that the person that knew her best was Scorpius, and he didn’t even try it. She worked hard to protect her, and to be there for her. But he, he could walk out of her life on day, and the next be her best friend again. “Scorpius knows something, but he won’t tell me what it is.” She said with a small sigh, looking back toward Gay. “I want to know what happened. She changed that day on the train, and she hasn’t even spoken a word about how they broke up nothing.” She added. “Something is wrong.”
Gay looked at her, with a look of sympathy. He hated the fact that Scorpius knew more about her then he did. He hated the fact that Rose wouldn’t even look at him, because she was so much in love with Scorpius. He hated him; that simple, he hated him. Yet somehow, Scorpius was one of his best friends, and he knew not to step in the way of what he and Rose had. “Scor, won’t tell me either.” He said, patting the seat next to him. He watched as Gray rose, and gently took the spot next to him. Gay placed his arm around, like he would do for Rose. Gray was one of his closest friends; he would do anything for her at the drop of a hat. “I think I have a feeling as to what happened. I just hope I’m not right.” He added, letting his gaze fall back to his book.
Rose paced from the shower to the door, in the sixth year girls dormitory. What was she going to do? How was she going to do this? What would her parents say? What would her family say? What about Gray? What about Gay? She paced. She couldn’t stop. She was scared to death, about what her family would think of her. What she would think about herself, or how the school would react. She let out a sigh, moving towards the sink, and turning the faucet. Rose felt the cold water run through her hands, as she cupped the water, and splashed in gently on her face. Her right hand reached for a towel, before wiping the water away from her face.
“It’s now or never.” Rose whispered to herself, picking up a small stick, and looking at it, like her life depended on it. Her heart skipped a beat, as a small plus appeared on the circle. It was positive. It couldn’t be right. It couldn’t. She waved her wand, watching as the plus appeared once more. She was really going to have a baby. She, Rose Weasley was going to have a child, at sixteen. Rose looked around, throwing the test into the trash. She was scared. She was terrified. How was she going to get through this? She knew Shawn wouldn’t support her. He was just someone, who saw a girl, and went for it. Rose pulled her hair up into a high ponytail, giving a light sigh. This wasn’t going to be easy. She stepped into the sixth year girl’s dormitory, moving over to the bed, and picked up her school bag, before walking down the stairs.
"Rosie! You're up." came the very bubbly voice of James and Fred, as they both gave a smirk. "You've been getting up really late." Fred smiled, placing his arm around his cousins shoulders, as James placed his on top of Fred's. "How is our lovely little Cherry-pop?" asks James with a smile plastered on his face.
"Yes . . . yes . . . how is our cherry?" Fred piped in. If James didn't have his father's black hair, then he could pass as Fred's twin. They acted the same; they had the same blue eyes and were identical in everyway, other than their hair. However, Fred was the more sensitive one of the two. He was sweet and treated any girl with respect. Their were a couple of times he stood up for Gray, even though she is the toughest girl in school - apart from Lily - but he stood up for her, and knocked some guy out. After that they had dated for awhile, but decided that they were better suited as friends.
Rose gave a smile. She had to keep being her old self, if she was going to make everyone believe that she was alright. "Jamie. Freddie." She smiled up at them, when they gave her, their childish 'I hate that name' look. "Cherry is doing quite fine. She's been on the better side of life for once." She smiled, pushing their arms off her shoulders. "I hope my boys are doing well." She added, before escaping into the girl’s bathroom on the second floor. No one she knew went into that bathroom, because of Myrtle, but she liked it in there. It was nice and even Myrtle had her good side.
"We must find out."
Fred and James gave a smile to one another, before they walked to the great hall. James gave a wink to Fred before, sliding over to the Slytherin table and seating himself next to Albus. Most of the Slytherin's glared at the Gryffindor, but Al looked over at his brother with a raised eye-brow. "My favorite brother." He started, with a grin.
"What do you want James?" asked Albus, looking over at the Gryffindor table to see Fred sitting in-between Gray and Gay, arms around both of them. Then it hit him, it had something to do with Rose. Fred and James never did anything unless there was a reason behind it, and he was pretty sure the reason behind this was Rose. But the real question was what about Rose? Albus elbowed Scorpius, who was sitting to his right, to listen in on what James was going to say. He knew that Scorpius still cared about her; it was just getting him to admit it to her.
"Rose. She's hiding something, and you and your little friend need to find out." James nodded toward Scorpius. He had seen what Albus had done, and he didn't care much. They were a pair, like him and Fred. It was a team, and teams didn't hide things from each other. "She needs something, and I have a feeling that If Gray and Gay can't get it out of her, the only one who can is your little friend." He added. "We're going to do something nice for her, mate. You in?"
Scorpius looked at James. He wasn't even looking at his brother; he was looking directly at him. He had said it. He had just said that he, Scorpius, was the only one who could help her. "You don't do nice, without a trick in it." Scorpius spoke, plainly.
"What do you want us to do then?" James looked at him, his eyes narrowed. He could do nice when he wanted to. He had just asked this kid for his help in helping his cousin, and he was giving him this. "Leave her be, isn't going to happen."
"Let me take care of her." Scorpius said, with a smirk. He knew what was going on in his Rose's mind. He could help her, but he needed to know that no one else was apart of the package.
James looked at him, his eyes narrowed, before nodding. "You talk to her, and get her to where we need her and we'll call it even." James said, before standing. He didn't need to wait for an answer, because he knew the kid would do what he asked. He wasn't stupid. He was smart, and knew that if he didn't do this then James would let something’s slip.
Fred gave a smile, as he placed his arms around Gray and Gay's shoulders. "So how are the two love birds this morning?" He asked with raised eyebrow. He laughed, when he saw Gray chock on her pumpkin juice. "Are you okay there, Sunshine?" He asked. He had always called her sunshine; his reason being that he didn't feel that Gray suited her, so he called her sunshine so there would be light in her life.
"Fred, that's not funny." She spoke, slapping in the back of the head. She looked at Gay who nodded with her in agreement. She could kill Fred, not that she didn't want to on a normal basis. He was one of those that she dated but stayed on good terms with when the broke up, but she knew that he could read her better then anyone else. "What do you want?" She asked, turning so that her knees were up on the bench, separating the two of them.
"Get to the point. I want to finish eating." Gay said, turning to look at him.
"James and I are going to throw Rosie a nice gathering, so she doesn't feel so down. You in?" He asked, knowing that they were in without even waiting for an answer. "Good glad to here it." He said after they nodded a yes, or whispered one, he wasn't sure, because he was focused on James nodding his head at him, before walking out of the hall. Fred sighed, grabbing some toast and shoving it down his throat before following him.
