A/N: Very little changed, but a few grammar errors. Also, for anyone who doesn't know, pop means soda where I live, so I thought I would clear that one up.
Fred and Danika popped into an alleyway behind a building. The night made everything less visible, but the lights from the front of the building and the noisiness of people from the front distinctly displayed the entrance of the building. Fred held onto Danika’s hand, not sure of where he had been led to. He started to walk out of the alleyway by Danika’s lead. “Where are we?” He asked, trying to look around.
Danika led him to the front of the building. “The movies.” She answered, looking up at the sign.
Fred felt confused, not understanding what a movie’s purpose had been. He looked mystified by the building called The Matisse. The name of the theater lit up in yellow because of its giant neon letters. People were waiting in a long line behind a red rope and they were noisily talking to others they had come to the movies with. Fred looked up at the sign to read the titles of the movies playing. There were only two and he read them out loud. “Titanic and Dirty Dancing,” he said with a funny look on his face. “Those are some weird titles.” He mentioned.
Danika giggled slightly. “They’re romance movies, which were popular back in their day.” She explained.
“Back in their day?” He asked, looking extremely confused.
Danika nodded. “Yup. These are movies that have already been out. I recommend we see Dirty Dancing just because it is shorter.” She suggested.
“Alright.” Fred said, standing in the line with her.
Then the line started to move forward. Their wait had slowly diminished as they reached the ticket booth. The two of them approached the ticket booth to see a man behind some glass. “Which movie are you seeing?” The man asked, displaying the theater could only hold two movies.
“Dirty Dancing.” Danika answered.
“Two then?” The man asked.
“Yes.” Danika answered.
“Six dollars please.” The man stated. The tickets were cheaper due to the age of the film.
Fred still seemed confused and he leaned over, closer to Danika, and whispered in her ear. “I don’t have muggle money.” He stated.
“That’s alright.” Danika said, opening her purse and handing the man the money.
Fred’s cheeks turned red with embarrassment as the man took the money and handed them two tickets. “Thanks. Enjoy the movie.” The ticket man said.
“Thanks.” Danika replied before taking Fred’s hand and walking inside.
Fred’s cheeks were still red as they entered and neared the concessions. He pulled Danika off to the side, looking upset. “You shouldn’t have paid.” Fred said, acting upset she had paid.
“It’s no big deal.” She replied.
“But it’s a date. The guy should pay for dates.” He said, stating a generalization.
“If it is that big of a deal, then you can pay me back.” She explained.
“Count on it.” He said, smiling.
“Alright. You want to get popcorn or something?” Danika asked, looking over at the concessions.
“Sure.” Fred replied, looking like a kid in a candy shop now.
The two of them walked over to the concession line. Fred looked up at the sign and felt amazed by all of his options. The sign lit up with popcorn and pop combos, varying from small to jumbo sizes. He studied the various candy choices from M&M to Kit Kat and Skittles. Fred looked at Danika who had been smiling, obviously noticing Fred’s amazement. Fred smiled at her. “Sorry. I don’t know what to get. I never had these things before.” He explained.
“You want me to just order you something then?” She asked, still smiling.
“Yeah.” He replied.
Danika walked up to the guy at the concessions stand. The man looked like he might have been in high school, while he wore an ugly red and white striped vest for his job. “Can I help you?” He asked, not sounding thrilled to be doing his job.
“We want two medium Pepsis and two Kit Kats.” Danika said, pulling out some money.
“Six fifty-seven.” The concessions man said once he pushed some buttons on the cash register.
Danika paid the man and received some change back. Fred watched the transaction as if he were studying bacterium growing in a Petri dish. He watched as the concessions man filled their drinks and grabbed their candy. The man handed them the items and Danika and Fred took them. “Enjoy the movie.” The man said before helping the next customer.
“Thanks.” Danika said as her and Fred started to walk towards a table with napkins, straws, and other various items. Fred eyed his drink suspiciously. He examined the whole thing like it had been a puzzle he needed to solve. “How do I drink this?” He questioned, looking extremely puzzled.
Danika laughed slightly as she picked up two straws. She shoved one into her drink through the hole in the lid and then did the same for his. “You drink with a straw.” She explained before taking a drink through the straw to demonstrate.
Fred watched in amazement as the liquid went up the straw and into her mouth. Then, he tried to do the same, but some of the liquid spilled out of his mouth and dribbled down the side. Danika laughed before grabbing a napkin and wiping his face. Fred smiled and tried drinking again, and this time he succeeded without the dribble.
Danika smiled and led Fred into the actual theater. He scanned the room and looked at the red seats and the huge screen in the front. He followed Danika as she sat in a seat near the back. He sat down next to her and watched her put her drink in the drink holder so Fred did the same. He also examined Danika as she opened her Kit Kat. Fred copied her and then took a bite. “Woah! This is awesome!” He exclaimed.
Danika smiled. “I’m glad you like it, but once the movie starts, you have to be quiet.” She explained.
Fred nodded and continued to eat his candy. Just then, the lights dimmed and the movie projected onto the screen. Fred watched intently as some people dancing came onto the screen and some music played. He thought the music sounded weird and the dancing looked weird also. He kept following the story as the characters were introduced. “Baby,” he thought. “That’s a weird name.”
A few minutes into the movie, Fred’s eyes went wide as he realized what the movie had been about. He watched as people on the screen danced dirty. His cheeks turned red slightly, but he surprisingly enjoyed the movie so far. About halfway through the movie, Fred put his arm around Danika. She looked at him for a second and smiled before turning back to the movie.
At the end of the movie, the lights came back up and Danika stood up from her seat and stretched. Fred did the same, but remained silent, taking in the movie. He followed Danika as she walked over to a trashcan and threw her trash away. He did the same and proceeded to follow her outside of the theater. “So what did you think?” Danika asked as they slowly walked along.
Fred thought for a moment. “It was interesting.” He replied, not sure of how to describe his reaction.
“Well, I hope the film didn’t give you any ideas.” She joked, smirking.
Fred smirked because he knew it really did give him ideas. They continued to walk along and Fred examined the surrounding buildings, clueless of where he had been going with her. “Where are we going?” He asked.
Danika pointed to a building only a few feet away. Fred looked at the building and noticed the giant yellow M. “McDonald’s?” He questioned, confused again.
“Yes,” nodded Danika. “It’s a fast food restaurant.”
Fred nodded as the two of them reached the door. He opened it for Danika and she smiled at him before stepping inside. He proceeded to follow her inside and over to the cash register. He looked up at the lighted sign, showing all the meal choices. “Big Mac?” he questioned in his thoughts. He wondered what it would taste like but he thought the name sounded funny also. “I don’t know what to order.” Fred confessed, still staring at his options.
Danika smirked. “Well, the Big Mac is pretty much their most popular sandwich” She explained.
Fred nodded. “I’ll just get that then.” He said, giving her that order-for-me look.
Danika turned to the woman at the cash register. “Two Big Mac meals please.” She stated.
The cashier tapped the screen a few times before looking back up. “Your total is ten fifty-seven please.” The cashier explained.
Danika handed the female cashier a twenty-dollar bill and the cashier took it before tapping the screen again. The drawer to the cash register opened and the cashier put the money in carefully and pulled out the exact change. She handed the change to Danika along with a receipt before putting a brown tray on the counter and sliding it down to make room for more orders. “Your order will be ready in a few minutes.” The cashier stated before moving onto the next customer.
Danika moved down by the tray and Fred followed her. She put her change away and then another McDonald’s worker put their food on the tray along with two empty cups. “Wow. That was quick.” Fred said, stating the obvious.
“Well, they don’t call it fast food for nothing,” joked Danika, picking up the empty cups. “You better get the tray while I get the drinks.”
Fred followed Danika as she walked over to the pop machine which looked like a foreign object. He watched intently as Danika pushed the cups against the ice machine lever, one at a time. He listened as the machine made weird noises and the ice plopped into the cups. Once the cups were half full, she pressed each one against the lever for Coca Cola. Fred watched in amazement as a brown stream of liquid flowed into the cups, one at a time. “That seems really complicated.” Fred confessed as Danika put lids on the drinks.
“It’s easy actually.” She said before walking over to a booth and sitting down. She set the cups down as Fred sat down the tray of food and then sat down across from Danika. He picked up one of the brown boxes and opened it, revealing his Big Mac. He picked it up with both hands, opened his mouth, and shoved it in, taking a big bite.
The special sauce from the Big Mac spilled out onto Fred’s hands and around his mouth. He set the sandwich down and Danika laughed as she witnessed his messiness. She grabbed a napkin and handed it to him. He grabbed it quickly and wiped his hands and face, feeling so embarrassed. “I didn’t know it would be so messy.” He confessed, his cheeks slightly red.
Danika smiled. “That’s okay.” She stated, before starting to eat her food.
The next half an hour or so the two spent eating their food. Fred managed to prevent his sandwich from causing a mess all over his face and hands. He actually managed a straw this time too. He didn’t spill the pop on him so the meal turned out alright. “That tasted awesome,” confessed Fred. “Way different then anything mum cooks.”
“Sure is,” replied Danika. “Well, we should probably head back.”
Fred nodded and he took care of the tray once Danika told him what to do with it. He dumped the trash in the trashcan and turned back to Danika, taking her hand in his own. “I guess we are ready then.” Fred said, leading her outside.
The couple walked outside and went behind the building. They looked around to make sure no muggles were watching. The coast seemed clear so Fred held onto Danika, pulled out his wand, and apparated the two back to the Burrow, inside of Danika’s room.
They arrived safely, but the house remained quiet since their date ran late. Fred stood there awkwardly, knowing the date should come to a close. All of a sudden, Danika turned around and walked over to her nightstand. “I almost forgot something.” She explained, grabbing a piece of paper and walking back over to Fred.
Danika handed the paper to Fred. “I finished the drawing.” She said, looking at him.
Fred examined the drawing and smiled since it actually resembled him. “Wow. It’s awesome.” He said, setting the drawing down on a nearby table when he finished looking it over.
Just then, Danika kissed Fred on the lips passionately. Fred felt shocked for a moment, but then he went with it. He closed his eyes and kissed her back just as passionately. He wrapped his arms around her, but then he remembered George’s speech about the condoms. This thought caused him to pull away suddenly.
Fred decided to come up with some lame excuse for pulling away. “I forgot to repay you,” he mentioned, pulling a bunch of things out of his pocket and setting them down on the table. The items included Galleons, Knuts, Sickles, random paper, and those couple of condoms he had placed in his back pocket at the shop earlier. He didn’t even realize he set the condoms out as he fidgeted around with the money. “I’m not quite sure how much wizarding money I owe you because of currency exchange.” He explained.
“It’s not really necessary to repay me.” She stated, walking over to the table and noticing the condoms.
Danika picked one up and looked at it carefully. Fred noticed what she had picked up and his cheeks turned bright red. “Oh. Umm. I didn’t plan on doing anything with that.” He explained, looking down at the ground feeling embarrassed and ashamed.
“We can use it.” Danika said out of the blue.
Fred looked back up at her, his eyes wide with shock. He gently grabbed her hands and looked at her very seriously. “We don’t have to do anything yet. I want you to be ready and feel comfortable when that time comes.” He explained truly meaning it.
Danika smiled and kissed him gently on the lips. Then her hands traveled downward, reaching Fred’s belt on his pants. She started to try and unhook his belt, but she struggled as if she were nervous. Fred grasped her hands and looked at her again because of her actions. “I’m serious. You don’t have to do this.” He stated, looking serious, but he felt very nervous never being in this situation before.
“I know,” replied Danika, putting her hands back on his belt and trying to still undo it. “I want to. I’m just really nervous.” She confessed.
“I know the feeling, but I can help you,” he explained, moving his hands to his own belt and unhooking it. After he did this, he moved his hand to his head and scratched his own head. He knew he would have to go through with this now. “I’m not sure what to do.” He confessed, really nervous.
Danika said nothing and just kissed him again. Her hands traveled to his pants again, pushing them down and causing them to hit the ground with a thud because of the belt. Fred felt strange as she did this, but he wrapped his arms around her waist while kissing her deeply. His hands rubbed her waist gently, and then he slid his hands upward, finding the zipper to her dress.
Fred carefully pulled the zipper down, loosening the dress’s grasp on Danika’s body. He slid the dress down and off of her delicate body while still kissing her, but they kissed fiercely the more they went along. At the same time, Danika had worked on taking off Fred’s shirt and tie and had succeeded in doing so.
At this point, Fred moved his hands to her upper back in search of a bra. To his astonishment, Danika had not been wearing a bra so he pulled away and looked at her, knowing they were both just in their underwear now. “Wow,” he said, examining her body with his eyes. “You’re beautiful.”
Danika smiled and Fred knew he had only one more thing to do. He gently picked Danika up and he kissed her while he carried her over to the bed. He gently laid her down on the bed and the rest remained history.
