Chapter 3: Chapter 3
I lay on my bed in the Gryffindor dormitory for the rest of the evening, crying. Crying, because I was pregnant. Crying, because I caught Josh cheating on me. Crying, because Albus and I kissed, and crying because I'm just so confused about it all, my head physically hurts.
'Ashley!' I heard Rose shout as she ripped open the curtains on my four poster. She saw my tears and immediately sat down and wrapped her arms around me. 'Oh Ash, Albus told me what happened! Screw Josh, he doesn't deserve you or your baby. You don't need him, you've got me and Al! We'll support you no matter what!'
'Thanks Rose, I'm just so confused. I don't know what to do.'
'I know you are, sweetie, but you can't hide away in your bed for the rest of your life. You must be starving, lets go to dinner.'
'I don't want to see anybody! I can't. Josh will try to speak to me and I'll probably get angry and scream everything at him in the middle of the Great Hall. And I really can't face Albus after what happened!'
'Why, what happened, sweetie? He seemed fine..' She questioned.
'Oh Rose! We kissed! I don't even know how it happened, it just did! It was the best kiss I've ever had and it felt so right! He's my best friend, we shouldn't be kissing! I shouldn't feel butterflies when I think about him! I shouldn't feel this way!' I cried into her shoulder as she held me.
I looked up quizzically, 'what do you mean?'
'The whole school have been waiting for you two to realise you're feelings for eachother for years! Everyone knew you both did! Then you messed it up by getting with Josh but I'm not grudging you of that.'
'What? Its not like that! Al doesn't like me! Why would he like me? I mean I'm just ordinary, he's always gone out with girls so much better than me!'
She raised an eyebrow, 'if you're so ordinary, how come you're the only girl that he isn't related to that he has spent so much time with? He gets bored after a few weeks with those other girls! With you, he's never bored! How can you not see, it's so obvious!'
'No buts! Get up, I'm hungry so we're going to the Great Hall and eating!' She demanded, dragging me by the arm until I was stood, 'Wait,' she grabbed her wand and muttered some cosmetic spells and I felt my face tingle. 'Beautiful! Nobody will ever know you cried!'
'Thanks Rose,' I said as we walked, arm in arm, to the Great Hall. I loved Rose, she was incredibly smart and always knew how to cheer me up. I don't know what I'd do without her.
She squeezed my hand as we sat on the Gryffindor table, across from Al, Lorcan and Lysander. The Scamander twins were also our best friends, they were both tall, blonde, clever and hilariously funny. They were extremely good looking. They weren't identical but you could tell they were related. I did have great friends.
'Hey Rosie, Ashtray.' Lysander greeted
'Ly, for the last time, stop calling me Ashtray!' I said, sitting down, picking up a chip and throwing it at his head.
'Hey! Keep throwing things at me then I might transfigure you into an ash tray, Ashtray!' Everybody laughed at that, so I joined in. Its so easy to forget my problems when I'm with my favourite people.
'You okay, Ash? You seem a bit off.' Lorcan asked, he always noticed when there was something up with anybody.
'Yeah, I'm fine.' I smiled and we all started shovelling food onto our plates, chatting animatedly about random things.
'Ashley, can I talk to you for a second please,' a voice behind me asked.
The owner of that voice was the last person I would like to talk to right now. My eyes made contact with Al and I grimaced at him slightly before turning around, 'Sure,' I said in an unaturally cheerful voice as I stood up and led the way out of the Great Hall.
