Disclaimer: I’m enjoying so much reading all the reviews this story has. This is one of the things I own and our dear J.K. Rowling doesn’t. Enjoy the chapter please. ^_^
After the game that changed their lives so much, even though it had been such a simple game, Neville and Luna left the Head Common Room and went to the greenhouses holding hands happily.
“So Neville...” Luna began to say with her blue eyes dazzling in the sun which Neville noticed.
“Ye-yeah L-Luna?” asked Neville timidly.
“Er... how long did you start to like me?” asked Luna shyly, looking down at her feet as they continued walking.
“We-well, I-I sta-started to h-have fe-feelings for you l-last year b-but I didn’t say anything be-because I didn’t want to lose you to the Death Eaters and it felt like I would, nothing good happens to me.” stuttered Neville, his cheeks steadily reddening.
“Neville, you aren't going to lose me. Believe me.”
“You promise Luna?”
“Yes, Neville I promise.”
“So?” Neville asked confused.
“Er...which of the greenhouses are we going to?”
“Er... well I thought we could go to greenhouse number 3.”
“Why number 3, Neville?”
“Now that, you are just going to wait until we get there.” Neville said as he grinned with his excitement rising.
“What? Aren't you going to tell me?” Luna asked surprised, laughing towards her boyfriend.
“But why not! That's not fair!”
“Well, firstly this is a surprise and if I told you it wouldn't be a surprise any more. Secondly, greenhouse number three is one of my favourite places to be, and for last but not least, there's something there that I want to show you.”
“Really?” Luna asked not believing this, curious at this news.
“Yes really.” Suddenly Neville said. “Wait!”
“What is it Neville?”Luna asked curious, not understanding what was going up.
“And you?” Neville asked as he was starting to grin.
“And I what?” questioned Luna.
“How long have you been feeling like this for me?” asked a sly Neville, with a similar smile in his face.
“Well, I sta-started to have fe-feelings for you in my thi-third year and your fourth. Probably it was at the Yule Ball that these feelings came.” explained Luna blushing furiously.
“So Neville, are we there yet?” asked a curious Luna, looking around the small field they were on. She loved being outside, the freshness and quietness.
“Yes, we are. Look, the greenhouse number 3, it's that little building over there.” explained Neville pointing his finger, to one of the small buildings. The building that Neville was pointing at had some plants at the entry of the greenhouse as ornaments. The plants are so beautiful. I wonder what Neville is going to show me. Luna thought.
They walked through the door; Neville gentlemanly held the door as Luna passed through. She nervously smiled at him, as she took in the room. It was not a big room, just a medium sized greenhouse. There were plenty of vibrant colours from the many plants, some stirred in the pots as others made odd noises every so often. The fragrance of the flowers hit Luna immediately, there was so many different smells. The smell of roses mixed with the foul stench of Neville's mimbulus mimbletonia that sat at the worktable near, this made Luna laugh.
“What's funny?” Neville asked from her side, letting go of her hand as he walked away to retrieve the thing he wanted to show her.
Luna stood there, waiting patiently. She slipped a hand through her smooth, blond hair as she continued her look around the room, thinking about the game she had not long ago played. Had it happened? It had just been so lucky and great that it felt like a dream.
Neville walked over, holding something behind his back and a mischievous grin on his face, “What are you daydreaming about?”
“The game, I just can't believe it,” smiled Luna truthfully.
“Me either,” Agreed Neville, wrapping an arm around Luna as he hid is neck in her soft hair.
“So Neville, what is it you have to show me?” Luna enquired, trying to peek behind his back but not seeing anything. Neville was too quick, hiding it from her sight as he nervously grinned.
“Don't laugh Luna,” He almost pleaded as he moved to stand right in front of her. He looked nervous, like what he was going to show her was embarrassing.
“But as you know, I liked you for ages, I also love it in the greenhouse and maybe one day I will work here. I'm telling you this because that's why this is here, something I had planned to give to you. I never expected I would though, I just thought it would be a dream of mine and this would be here until I left.”
“What is it you have?” Luna asked.
“A letter for you.” he blushed, not looking at her.
“I think that is sweet!” She beamed, “Can I read it then?”
He slowly passed Luna the letter, and as she unfolded it she saw his neat writing, she began reading.
I love you. It's as simple as that. Last year made me realise that, with all that has gone though, I haven't and probably won't say anything. I can't say anything, you will be hurt like all the people I care and love, I mean, look at my parents...I want to tell you, I want to be with you but it feels impossible. I'm also shy so I can't tell you because of that as well.Luna, you are pretty. You are unique and interesting. I want you to know this, because this is why I love you so much. I just wish, and hope you love me...
Luna looked up, a tear falling down her cheek as she finished the letter. She smiled and said. “I love you too Neville.”
He seemed to relax with relief, smiling broadly. He went over to her, hugging her deeply as the letter flew to the floor and forgotten. She kissed him again, deeply and loved it. She was glad she had him, the boy she wanted so much was hers...
A/N: Sorry for the long update. I had a little writer’s block with this chapter but I had help. I would like to dedicate this chapter to the author Jessiy, because she helped me writing this chapter. Ur the best!!! So what do you think? Be honest but the little box bellow is asking for reviews!!! Just kidding...
Also, I want to say that I will write a little epilogue after the fifth chapter. I can't even believe that I'm almost ending writing this fic. It was my 1st story and it was started as a one-shot almost a year ago. Keep reading please!!! ^_^
