Chapter 7: Of Modesty, Victoire and fights.
A/N CHEESY CHAPTER ALET!
Dad's owl was waiting at the bottom of my bed when I woke up.
To my very modest son,
There are many things you could do I would suggest confronting her about it, she might feel the same, you don't know till you ask.
From Dad x.
'Thanks that helped' I mumbled to myself running downstairs and showering (the floor was wet so I think Ally had just been in) before running back up to my room and getting dressed before going downstairs and waiting for Alls who ran down the stairs a few minutes later smelling fresh.
'Lets a go go' She said climbing down the ladder.
'When are you holding try outs?' She asked when we both go to the bottom of the ladder.
'I've got the field booked saturday' I said grinning 'Why thinking about trying out for the team this year?' I laughed.
'I dunno do you think I'd make it' She said laughing.
'There's always a chance' I laughed walking in to the Great Hall, the rest of the gang wasn't there yet.
'Mmm bacon!' Ally said piling bacon sky high on to her plate.
'Slow down Ally Cat' I said laughing and shoving some sausages on to my own plate and pouring some pumpkin juice.
'Never' She laughed sinking her teeth in to a piece as the gang turned up Aves and Dom sitting on her side of the table, Freddy and Frankie sliding in next to me.
'Lily' Ally shouted down the table to where Lils was sitting 'Try outs are on Saturday!'
'Why are you telling me sister?' I asked frowning.
'She's a good flyer James'
'No she's not she never flys unless all the Wotters are playing' I said looking down the table to where Lily was talking to Fionnla.
'She steals your broom most nights when you're at home' Ally said rolling her eyes.
'Why on Earth would she steal my broom she has her own one' I near shouted feeling a rush of anger.
'Her broom's kinda shit isn't it?' Freddy joined in.
'Yeah it's only a comet' Ally said popping more food in to her mouth.
'My broom' I whimpered.
'She didn't break it James' Ally rolled her eyes.
'I'm going to have a word with her about this.' I said about to get up.
'No please don't I should of told you!' Ally said with pleading eyes.
'Okay' I said 'But only because you you're asking me not to'
'Good' Ally said her face lighting up again.
'Remember to come to the first Wotter meeting of the year in the Head's dorm tonight.' I told Dom and Freddy.
'I'll go remind them all' Freddy said getting up and walking up and down the table finding all the cousins most of which where together in groups anyways so it wasn't that hard to find them all.
'Lets go to Muggle studies then' Ally said to all of us apart from Aves who had arithmacy.
'Oi Freddy muggle studies' I shouted from where he seem to he having a fight with Molly.
'Kay I'm coming' He said running up the length of the Great Hall and exiting it with us 'Molly called my hair stupid' he pouted
'It's not stupid mate it's sexy like mine' I said giving him a bro hug
'I told every one and they're all coming apart from Lils will be five minutes late because she has charms club with Ally, Al will be ten minutes late because he's got a study date with Eveline, Rose has homework but will try to be on time, Roxy has gobstones club-'
'Freddy is anyone going to be on time?' I asked him.
'Molly, Lucy and maybe us' He laughed.
'Wow five out of eleven people are going to be on time' I laughed 'better tell Alls she needs to stay out of the room during the meeting' I said to Freddy before yelling 'Ally! Wotter meeting tonight you need to clear out please' I grinned.
'Me and Frankie are having dinner with Dad anyway!' She yelled from where she and Dom had walked ahead.
'Great' I said mesmerised for a moment by the way she swung her hips as she walked.
'James stop checking out Ally' Frankie said through gritted teeth.
'You're going out with my cousin!' I remarked.
'Exactly going out, you're not going out with Ally' Said Frankie.
'Yet' Coughed Freddy.
'I don't like her that way guys and you know I don't' I said rolling my eyes to cover my red face.
'Why are you blushing then?' Asked Frankie.
'It's warm today!'
'It's five degrees' Said Freddy.
'Look I actually don't fancy her!' I near yelled.
'Says the one who's been checking her out all summer' Muttered Freddy.
'I don't!' I shouted causing Ally and Dom to turn around.
'What in Merlin's name are you shouting about?' Yelled Dom at the top of her lungs.
'I believe you're the one shouting dear cousin' Shouted Freddy.
'You just shouted then!' Yelled Dom.
'So did you!' Replied Freddy.
'Both of you shut up' Ordered Ally walking in to the Muggle studies class room where she sat at the end of the row letting be sit beside her and Freddy sit beside me and then Dom and Frankie.
'Hello class' Vicky said appearing from the door way.
'Vic?' Screeched Dom.
'Hello I am Proffesor Weasley – soon to be Proffesor Lupin – I'm sure you all know my dear sister' she said looking at Dom who looked horrified 'and cousins' She said pointing to me and Freddy so we simultaneously chose to take a bow.
'Vic' Dom screeched 'what are you doing here?'
'Being the new teacher.'
'Why didn't you tell me?'
'I didn't know until yesterday, old Professor Lice died in his sleep and so they offered me the job' She grinned.
'Good for you.' Dom said dryly.
'I know it is.' Said Vic narrowing her eyes at Dom 'Anyway!' She continued cheerfully 'Today we will be covering Muggle Transportation!' she said as half the guys in the class where practically drooling looking at her.
'She has a fiance!' I yelled at them.
'James.' Said Vicky narrowing her eyes 'Be quiet.' She said before continuing her lecture about cars.
Damn friging little Victoire.
Always the perfect child, be more like Victoire Dom, Dom don't blow up that toy poodle Victoire would never try and do anything like that.
She got the talent and the frigging Veela looks.
Even Frankie's staring right now.
Even my frigging boyfriend.
Oh look Perfect Princess Vicky is asking me a question.
'Cars need petrol to go' I said dryly answering her question.
'Well done' She said frowning at my enthusiasm or lack of before continuing.
Frankie's still staring at her.
She has a frigging fiance but she's still trying to steal my Frankie.
Well they can both stuff themselves.
I need a plan.
Poision is always a good option.
'Ally' I hissed to her.
'Yeah?' She replied.
'What's a good way to kill some one?'
'I've always personally been a big fan of axes'
'You two are scaring me' James said from the table in front of ours.
'You're face scares me' Ally said sticking out her tongue at James.
I love muggle studies, it's the best.
I'm not good at a whole lot of things like Ally is but muggle stuff is my thing.
Professor Lice was a really bad teacher, Dom's sister's really good though!
I still can't believe Dom likes me I'm so lucky to have her she so pretty, much prettier than her sister in fact, much prettier than every one else on the planet.
She's funny too and a fighter, I love that about her.
Still Frankie's pov.
'Merlin that was a long lesson' Moaned Ally.
'It was awesome though' I said smiling.
'Oh I bet you thought it was.' Dom said glaring at me before storming off.
'Uh what is she mad about?' I asked my twin.
'No clue' Said Ally looking confused.
'I'll be back in a minute' I said turning and running off in her direction.
'BE CAREFUL NOT TO SNOG HER FACE OFF!' Freddy yelled after me and I could hear Ally's loud laughter.
'Dom?' I shouted, catching up with her 'Dom!'
'Just leave me alone!' She shouted running outside.
'What's wrong Dom!' I shouted catching up to her and grabbing her wrist.
'Of just pretend like you don't know' She said 'Perficas Totalus' She said freezing me as she stormed off.
'Well that's Dom and Frankie's first fight over' Ally said.
'Sure looked liked it' Said Freddy.
'Hmm' Said Ally making her way down the stair case 'I hope they work it out.'
'They will Alls' Freddy said rolling his eyes and picking her up and running down the stairs with her making me feel a surge of jealousy.
'Eee put me down!' Squealed Ally laughing.
'Nope' Said Freddy pretending to drop her.
'Freddy!' Ally screamed gripping on to him as he ran down the stair case 'James! Stop him'
'To your rescue' I said winking and pulling her out of Freddy's arms and in to my own, swinging her around and around.
'Mr Potter! Miss Longbottom!' The Headmistress shouted 'You are representatives of the ENITRE school!' She scolded and Ally's hair turned pink with embarrassment.
'Sorry' We both mumbled and I placed her on the floor.
'You'll do better not to mess about in such ways in the future' She said walking off.
'James!' Ally said hitting me 'you got me in to trouble!'
'Sowree' I said sending her my infamous grin.
'I hate you' She muttered smiling and sauntering in to the Great Hall where only Avery was waiting.
'Where's Frankie and Dom?' Said Avery asked.
'Probably having a good make up snog' Freddy said winking and sitting down next to Aves.
'Ew' Said Ally taking a seat next to me.
'Ah right...I'm going to go sit at the Ravenclaw table for a while' Avery said getting up and walking over to her Ravenclaw boyfriend before starting to snog his face off.
'That Avery's a classy little girl isn't she?' Michael Goyle a pig of a Slytherin who was also Quidditch Captain said.
'Hey Michael' Ally said smiling sweetly knowing full well her fancied her (Ok that may be another reason I hate that git.)
'Hey Ally' He said smirking.
'Michael sweetie' Said Ally still smiling 'Talk about Avery that way again and I'll punch you in the face'
'I'd like to see you try Longbottom' He said smirking.
'Oh yeah?' Ally said getting up to her feet.
'Yes darling now don't worry you pretty little face and let the men do the talking' He said spinning her around and slapping her on the arse.
'OH THAT IS IT!' Ally screamed a split second before I was going to, tackling his to the floor and punching him right in the nose.
'You frigging punched me!' He screamed pushing her off.
'You slapped my arse' Ally said folding her arms her hair the same colour as the blood spurting from Goyle's nose.
'You need to get yourself some manners not that you would no any all the time you spend with those bloody Wealseys' He spat and I punched him in the jaw hopefully breaking it as I heard a massive crack and a bang as Freddy jumped over the table, tackled him holding him in place while Lily fired a well aimed Bat Bogey Hex at him and a teeth enlarging charm was shot from some where else on the table.
'James' Hagrid said pulling me back and Freddy off him 'It ain’t wise to be fighting in front ov teachers' he said pointing to the teaches who seemed to be pretending not to be looking knowing that Goyle had started it, apart from Vicky who was marching down from the Top Table.
'James, Freddy' She hissed pulling us out of Hagrid's grasp and marching us out of the GH.
'You started a fight on my FIRST DAY' She yelled.
'He started it! I didn't even throw the first punch!' I said defending myself.
'Oh that's right Ally did, the girl who's more of a Wotter than Molly or Lucy' She said marching back in to the GH and reappearing with Ally.
'He slapped me on the arse!' Yelled Ally to Vicky.
'So you needed to punch him? You're Head Girl! You could of put him in a month of detentions or something!' Shouted Vicky.
'Hey this isn't her fault' I said receiving death glares from both of them.
'I don't need you to defend me James!' Shouted Ally 'You're just as bad as Goyle telling me to “leave the men to talk”' She screamed running out.
'Oh well done James' Shouted Vicky 'you're careless both of you! I could have been fired!' She said walking off.
'WOTTER MEETING AT SEVEN' Freddy shouted after her.
'I'm going to find Alls' I said running in the direction she had just run off.
'Ok I'm just going to go get Lils to teach me that hex!' He shouted going back in to the great hall.
'Ally?' I shouted running down the corridor.
'Go away you misogynistic pig!' She shouted from where ever she was hiding.
'Ally please I didn't mean it like that!
'I'm not pleased with you.' She said stepping out of the shadows her hair still a vivid red.
'OK' I sighed, she was talking and that told me she was only a seven on the one to ten scale of rage. The bell rang 'It's D.A.D.A I think'
'Yeah it is' She said wondering to the class room where all the tables had been pushed to the side.
'What are we doing today then Professor Ricktor?' Ally asked the shabby figure that was Professor Riktor.
'We're starting on Patronous' and then THE Harry Potter and Ron Wealsey will be coming in next week to help those who have mastered it and teach those who have not.' Smiled Riktor.
'Sounds good' Said Alls smiling.
Twenty or so minutes later when most of the class had turned up (Dom and Frankie where strangely absent) and Thorn had explained to the rest of the class we where put in to twos (I was put with Alls – happy dance) and we where set to work.
'Expectro patronoum!' Ally shouted and mere sliver mist came out the end of her wand.
'Expecto patronoum' I shouted with only the same sliver mist coming out.
'We need happier memories I think' Said Ally.
'Yeah what where you thinking of?' I asked.
'When we won the Quidditch cup last year, you?' She smiled.
'The same' I lied (I was really thinking about when she had pecked me on the lip on holiday)
'Mmm' She said and I could see the cogs turning in her head 'OK I've got enougher one – EXPECTO PATRONUM' She shouted and a sliver hummingbird shot out the end of her wand and flew around the room looking just like Ally did on a broom as it flew.
'Eee!' She shouted hugging me in joy.
'Well done Alls' I said laughing.
'I just wish it wasn't a hummingbird' She said pouting 'it's just a bit...small.'
'It's great Alls suits you loads' I smiled 'Now I just need to do it' I said thinking of Ally and not just one memory of her, her when she flew around the field so elegantly, her bad, adorable, dancing at parties, the way she smiled, the way she could scoff chocolate cake like no one else 'EXPECTO PATRONUM' I yelled and a hummingbird that looked exactly like Ally's burst out the end of my wand and flew around 'shit' I murmured under my breath thinking about all the mocking I was gonna get for having some one as measly as a hummingbird as a patronous.
'Wow we have the same animal!' Said Ally looking happy and confused at the same time.
'Yeah we do' I said looking over at where a massive hyena jumped out of Freddy's wand.
See why couldn't I have something more manly like that!
'Weird' Said Ally still looking confused before saying 'look I'm a hummingbird' She said morphing her hair in to various shades of pink, green and yellow and making her nose in to a beak before pretending to fly around the room by flapping her arms.
'Shame Frankie and Dom aren't here' Said Hummingbird Ally.
'Same' I said watching a leamer spring out of Avery's wand
'Miss Longbottom I'm assuming there's a reason you look like a bird?' Said Thorn
'Mine and James partonus are hummingbirds' Grinned Ally.
'They're the same' He said looking shocked.
'Yes why is that rare?' Asked Ally.
'Yes it is' He said 'OK both of you show me then, Miss Longbottom you go first' He said pointing to her and the Hummingbird appeared out the end of her wand and flew around the room and then I conjured my own one to join her one flying around.
'Merlin' He mumbled under his breath so he though no one could here 'they'd better invite me to the wedding' He said making me turn bright red.
'James why are you blushing?' Ally asked her hummingbird dissapering.
'No reason' I said.
'Right...' Said Ally flapping her arms and going over to Avery.
'What's yours then? Mine's a hyena' Said Freddy walking over to me grinning.
'A bird' I said.
'What type of bird?' He asked raising his eyebrows.
'A hummingbird' I mumbled as he burst out in to laughter.
'Shut it' I said frowning.
'Ah it's not that bad really' Said Freddy.
'Glad you feel that way.' I said dryly.
'I call this Wotter family meeting to order' I shouted and had to admit nearly everyone did turn up on time in the end and even Vicky turned up and Dom who still looked pissed so I didn't ask about Frankie.
'I think you should bring up the topic of violence' Vicky said scowling.
'Ah yes, those in favour of defending family honour by using fights when necessary?' I asked and nearly every one raised their hands 'sorry Vic over ruled' I said smirking
'It's not like Frankie not to turn up' Dad said for what felt like the hundredth time. I was sat in his office eating dinner but for the first time ever Frankie hadn't turned up. He never forgets anything as well that's normally me!
'Yeah but as I said he and Dom had a fight earlier so I think they're making up' I said.
'Ah right well next time you see him tell him to come and talk to me about missing family time' Dad laughed.
'OK I will.'
'So Alice are you going out with anyone at the moment?' Dad asked nervously.
'Nope' I said popping the p.
'Not Freddy or James?'
'God no! Freddy's a man whore and James is...well James!' I laughed 'We did Patronouses today in DADA my Patronous is a hummingbird! James was as well now that was a cowinkydinky!'
'What?' Dad spluttered nearly choking on his dinner 'You had the same patronous?'
'Yeah why?' I said feeling very confused.
'Um no reason.' Said Dad.
Two hours later.
'Ally?' I heard James say as I walked in to the Head's Dorms.
'Yeah' I said finding him lounging on the couch in his robot onesies his hair messier than ever 'how was the Wotter meeting?' I asked.
'Good but the tension between Dom and Victoire was nearly unbearable!' He laughed 'I was almost considering that axe murder'
'Wait' I said suddenly feeling very worried 'Dom was at the Wotter meeting?'
'Yeah why?' James asked.
'Frankie wasn't at dinner.' I said.
'Shit' He said scrambling to his feet 'lets go ask Dom if she knows where he is, people don't just go missing now a days' He said pulling me out of the common room and over to where Freddy and Dom where sat.
'Dom where's Frankie?' I demanded.
'He's probably in his dorm the little twat' She spat.
'He's not in the dorm Dom' Said Freddy looking worried.
'He must be the spell wasn't that strong he could of undone it' She said rolling her eyes.
'What spell Dom?' James demanded.
'Just perifacas totalus he could undo it' She said
'Dom he left his wand on his bedside table this morning' Said Freddy.
'How did he do his lesons then?' Dom asked.
'We had muggle studies didn't we' Avery pointed out.
'Shit' She said suddenly looking very worried.
'Where is he' I yelled feeling murderous.
'Near the greenhouses' She muttered sinking in to the chair.
'Shit' I said running down out the common room and running down all the stairs faster than I could manage, tripping about four times but just getting stright back up and running up till I got to the partially hidden corner near the greenhouses where I found Frankie who had blue lips and was ice cold, I quickly undid the spell but he didn't move.
'Frankie!' I yelled shaking his ice cold body.
'Ally he's probably frozen we need to get him to Madame P!' James said picking him up Freddy helping him and running with him in to the hospital wing.
'Madame P!' I shouted feeling my world crumbling around me, this was Frankie, Frankie my twin, sweet Frankie, Frankie who cried when he broke the crayons in half, Frankie who was there at every single one of my Matches even though he hated Quidditch, My Brother who was always there. 'Frankie he's-'
'Half frozen, hypothermia most likely' She said getting Freddy and James to put him down on the bed.
'All of you out!' She ordered.
'I'm not leaving!' I shouted feeling irrational.
'Take her out.' She said to James who grabbed me around my waist.
'No, No, No, No!' I screamed kicking my legs as he pulled me out the door which automaticly shut.
'No' I screamed curling in to a ball and closing my eyes.
What the hell did I do.
Frankie doesn't like Victoire his favourite subject's muggle studies.
I might of just killed the love of my life.
I hate seeing Ally like this.
It's like she's broken, she is in away, she's missing a part of her – her twin.
I want to take her pain away but I can't.
All I can fucking do is sit here at the bottom of these stairs with Freddy and a broken Ally with Avery out doing god knows with her boyfriend, Frankie on the brink of death and a stupid ass cousin who caused this all.
My fucking cousin broke my Ally.
'James' Said Dom quitely from behind me.
'What on Earth do you want Dominique?'
'He might fucking die thanks to you.' I said regretting the words as soon as I said them.
'I know' She said bursting in to tears.
Fuck. Dom never cries, this just seems to be a year for crying.
'Sorry' I said awkwardly hugging her.
'I frigging love him, James' She said crying more 'I didn't even know before two minutes ago'
'He'll be okay Dom he's got Madame P looking after him.'
'Ally must hate me' She sobbed.
'Only a little, if Frankie's okay she'll get over it.'
'If' she sobbed.
'He's alive, some one run and tell his Father about everything' Madame P ordered sticking her head out of the door of the Hospital Wing.
'I'll do it' Dom said running up the stairs.
'Ally' I said stroking her back as she uncurled from the ball.
'Frankie ok?' She asked drowsily.
'He's alive' I said and she kissed me on the lips in a moment of pure joy.
'Thanks' She said pulling back awkwardly, her hair turning pink.
'Ally I-' I said before I noticed Professor L running down the stairs in flannel pyjamas, Dom running behind him.
'Daddy!' Ally said turning her hair back to blonde 'Madame P said he's alive!'
'Oh thank goodness' He sighed hugging Ally tightly before darting in to the hospital wing, 'No Alice wait here' He said when she tried to follow him in.
'Hush Ally' I said hugging her as Freddy comforted Dom.
'I-I'm sorry Ally' Dom said crying, Ally just nodded and curled up in to a ball again.
'Just Alice may come in now' Said Professor L and Ally uncurled from her ball and stumbled in the Hospital Wing before closing the door just as Dom started pacing.
'F-Frankie?' I asked walking up to his bed where to my relief he looked almost normal.
'I-I'm f-fine A-Alls' He said shivering.
'Thank Merlin' I said stroking his head.
'I-Is Dom out there?' He said looking desperate.
'I-Is she still mad?'
'Kids?' Said Dad bringing Frankie a warm drink 'if you're okay Frank I'll go back to bed I know you'll want some time to make things up with Dom' Said Dad kissing Frankie on the forehead and walking out.
'Ally I love you but could you please leave and send Dom in?' he pleaded.
'OK Frank apologise for what ever you did and you two best be happy again before tomorrow morning' I smiled walking out.
'He wants Dom' I said looking at her.
'Me?' She said getting to her feet 'Yes look after him I'm going back to Bed c'mon James, Freddy.'
'Dom?' Frankie asked when he heard my footsteps.
'Yep' I said walking over to his bed, carefully sitting on the end of it 'I'm so sorry Frankie I thought you where going to leave me for Vicky because you where staring at her and-'
'I was staring at her because she was the teacher' he said honestly.
'I know that now but she's prettier than me and smarted and I just got jealous but I didn't mean to hurt you I'm really sorry'
'She's not prettier than you Dom, no one is and I know you didn't mean to hurt me' He said sitting up and hugging me 'I-I love you Dom.'
'I love you too Frankie so much and I'm so sorry' I sobbed.
'Don't cry please' He mumbled in to my shoulder.
'OK' I said rubbing my eyes dry and smiling slightly and lying down putting my head on his chest and falling asleep.
