I will probably edit this chapter later on this week as well, taking out errors and detailing it a bit more. But I just had to get this out.

Teddy Lupin was currently sporting dark red, almost maroon hair. He had a sly grin on his face and a pretty girl was handing from his arm. She was giggling, whispering obscene things to Teddy. She had long black hair, and her lips were painted red. She went by the name of Clarise Reynolds. She was beautiful, a seventh year, just like Teddy and one of the Hogwarts Bombshells.
He led her through the Gryffindor common room and was dragging her up to his dorm. But, apparently, she couldn’t wait that long. She put her hands on his hips and pushed him back against the wall; her lips came crashing down on his. He groaned in pain as the railing dug into his back. She took it was a groan of pleasure. She began to rub his chest, pushing him further into the wall. He groaned, almost yelped in pain.
“You are so hot, Ted,” she muttered seductively into his ear.
Suddenly, her bright red lips didn’t seem to be such turn-ons anymore. In fact, he was absolutely turned off.
He took her gently by the shoulders and pushed her back. “Reese, I gotta go meet some of the guys,” he said, trying not to sound mean. “I’ll see you later, okay?”
She pouted her lips, giving him a last peck on the lips before saying, “Are you just trying to get rid of me Teddy Bear?”
“No, Clarise, of course not,” he insisted and he sped up the stairs, rubbing his back. He shut the door behind him, making all precautions against her.
His roommate, Lance Finnigan, was snoring noisily on the floor. He was wearing underwear and no shirt, and there was a weird smell coming from Lance’s side of the room.
Teddy grimaced at the pungent smell and changed his clothes and got out of there as fast as possible. Dressed in black flannel night pants and a T-shirt he headed downstairs in hopes of find food.
He swung around the railing, landing with a thump at the bottom of the landing. He flashed a smile at a group of giggling fourth years who were heading up the stairs to the girl dorms. He hadn’t meant to make it at sexy as it looked, it just happened.
His best friend, Tei Jeng Wong emerged from behind one of the couches, in his hand was a thick book. Tei Jeng left the book on the table and caught up with Ted.
“I saw you and Clarise today. Looked like it was getting heavy,” Tei Jeng said casually.
“It was more like physical assault,” he mumbled in response,
“What?” Tei Jeng asked, confused.
“Never mind, it’s not important,” he said, “how was your date with the library?”
Tei Jeng scowled, but still responded, “You would not believe what I found in the Restricted Section. It’s so intense…”
Teddy’s mind wandered away as he approached the kitchens. He opened the portrait to go in and was greeted by the sight of House Elves milling around. The aroma of pumpkin pies and other delicacies filled his nose, the pungent smell of his dorm had vanished from memory.
Kreacher approached him moments after his arrival. “Ted Lupin! Ted Lupin! What can I get you, Mistress Tonks’ son?”
“How about a cinnamon bun?” Kreacher tottered away in search of a cinnamon bun. He came back minutes later with a platter of hot and delicious smelling buns.
Tei Jeng took one and popped it into his mouth. Teddy thanked Kreacher. The two left through the portrait hole back to the Gryffindor common room. Tei Jeng left off to the library once again, and Teddy found himself alone in the corridors of the cold castle.
It was cold outside, the snow had just begun to pile up and coat the trees in a powdery layer. The wind was howling outside like a dog in distress. He found himself mesmerized in a group of first years who were having a snow ball fight. They were falling and flailing in the wind and he had a sudden impulse to join them in the fun they were having.
He turned away from the window and began walking back to the Gryffindor tower. He heard a clattering sound from behind him and he turned around to Victoire Weasley coming through the door. Instantly, a smile appeared on Teddy’s face. Her blonde hair was tyed into a knot at the back of her head, and she had a big green cap on her head. He supposed Mrs. Weasley had made it for her. She had even made Teddy one, but he had decided to keep it tucked away in his trunk. Her cheeks were red from the cold and snow had not yet melted from her clothes.
He knews she was part Veela, but she something in common with Teddy: she was part werewolf.
Behind her was a boy of her height and brown hair. He had square glasses and a lank body.
Victoire looked up from her conversation with the boy, “Oh, hey, Teddy,” she said very casually, barely looking at him.
He simply nodded at the boy, “Hey, Victoire.”
The two walked away happily, and Teddy felt like he was the only lonely person in the whole school. He never had a single girlfriend. He had never been in love. Sure there had been those one day flings, but he was sure they didn’t qualify as a ‘relationship’.
He sighed and continued back to the Gryffindor Tower.
I don't own any of the characters that are in the Harry Potter books. The others are mine. :)
