The sun was shining on this beautiful autumn day in London. Luna looked out the window of her bedroom, remembering the days she had at Hogwarts. Where she actually made friends. She smiled at the thought of her having friends.
Just then an owl came, and stopped on the window pane, and stared at Luna. The owl had a letter in it's mouth addressed: Luna Lovegood.
Luna grabbed the letter from the owl, patted the owl's head, and the owl soared out of the window and into the horizon. To Luna, that was such a beautiful scene. An owl flying with it's wings spread out, and the sun rising.
Luna opened the letter after the owl had disappeared.
Good Day! I sent you this letter to inform you that the room I have for you is ready. I am very excited that you will be staying with me! I haven't seen you since Hogwarts, and I miss my best friend.
Please, Luna, when you get this, reply to me right away telling me when you should be coming. Or, if I should come and pick you up.
See you soon!
HermioneLuna took out a piece of parchment as quickly as she could and wrote back to Hermione:
I got your letter and i should be there tonight. No, you don't have to pick me up. My Dad probably want to say goodbye to me and have as much time with me as he can. Thanks for the offer though!
Luna.Luna called one of her owls and gave him the letter.
"Bring this to Hermione Granger, please." Luna said, and the bird flew off into the sky.
Luna got dressed, combed her long blonde hair, and walked downstairs to see her Dad sitting at the kitchen table drinking tea, and reading the Dialy Prophet. Luna sat down with him, and grabbed a piece of toast.
"Good Morning, Beautiful." Mr Lovegood said as Luna took a bite of the toast.
"Morning Dad. Hermione is ready for me. She sent me a letter saying the room is ready. I told her that I would be there tonight. Is that okay with you?" Luna asked, as her dad and he put down the paper.
"Of course darling. I always knew this day would come." Her dad said, getting emotional.
Luna stood up and walked over to her father and hugged him. "Don't worry Dad. I'm twenty one now, I think it's time for me to leave." Luna said.
"You're right." her dad said, and Luna let go of the hug and sat back down. Mr Lovegood whiped a stray tear away. "You're not my baby girl anymore, you're all grown up." he smiled as he said that. Mr. Lovegood was proud of his daughter and what she has become.
Luna smiled. "Don't worry Dad, I'm all yours for the day." She said, "What should we do?"
"Let's go to Diagon Alley, for old times sake."
The ride to Diagon Alley wasn't as long as Luna expected. When they finally got there, they were browsing around the stores together. They walked into Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, and were looking around.
Luna saw a dark shawdow moving through the alley ways, and she wanted to investigate. "Uhm, dad? I just have to go use the bathroom, I'll be right back." Luna said walking out of the store Fred and George Weasley owned.
"Alright, sweetie. I'll be here if you need me." Mr. Lovegood said, looking at everything in the shop.
Luna walked out of the shop, and down the alley where she saw the figure. Her wand was handy in her bag that went over the shoulder. She had her hand on the opening of her back, just in case.
"Who's here?" Luna yelled.
"What are you doing here? You don't belong here!" The voice belonged to a man.
"I'm here to see who you are. You're not allowed in these parts." Luna said, clutching her bag.
The dark figure came into Luna's view. It was definately a man, very tall, and lean.
A gust of wind blew down the alley way and Luna hair fell out of the neat pony tail it was in, causing her long curls to dance in the wind. She pick up the hair thing and was about to put it back up.
"Wait, do I know you?" the man said, getting closer to Luna.
"Maybe, If you tell me who you are." Luna said, backing away slowly.
"You don't recognize me from school?" the man said.
He walked closer to Luna and she knew who he was. Draco Malfoy.
"Malfoy?" Luna asked, surprised.
"No, it's Minvera McGonagall," Draco said sarcastically, smirking, "of course it's me."
"What are you doing here?" Luna asked.
"What are you doing here?"
"I'm here spending a day with my father, I'm moving out tonight and he wants to spend time with me." Luna said, coldly.
"Just moving out now?" Draco said, harshly.
"Yes, I'm moving in with my best friend!" Luna said, getting annoyed.
"Oh, wow. Loony's got a friend?" Draco said, smirking.
Luna grabbed her wand out from her bag and aimed it right at his face.
"Wow, chill. It was a joke." Draco said, and he turned around and started walking away.
"You never told me why you're here!" Luna yelled after him.
"You'll soon find out!" Draco said. He knew who her best friend was; Hermione Granger.
Luna put her wand back in her bag and went back into Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes and found her father trying to get a bargain with Fred.
"For the last time, that is eight galleons, no discounts!" Fred said. He must have said that a few times now because his voice sounded annoyed.
Luna walked over there "I'm back Dad," she looked at Fred, "Hello Fred."
"Come on dad, let's just go home. It's getting dark anyway." Luna said, trying to get her dad away from Fred.
"Alright," He said, and turned back to Fred, "But I'll be back!"
Harry was staying at the Burrow with the Weasleys'. Fred and George just walked in the door.
"Fred, why is you face redder than your hair?" Molly asked, putting her hands on her hips.
"He's annoyed cause a costumer was annoying him about getting a discount." Said George as he walked past Mrs. Weasley and toward the food on the table.
"Not just any costumer Mum, Mr. Lovegood. Loony's dad." Fred said, rolling his eyes.
Harry stood up. "She's not Loony! Her name is Luna!" Harry said.
"Who cares. She's like mental in the head or something." Fred said sitting at the table as well.
Harry walked over to them. "Maybe she has a reason she's like that!"
"Blimey, Harry, calm down." George said.
Harry took a deep breath and went back into the living room area.
Ginny walked down the stairs and sat next to Harry. "Hey Harry!" she said, cheerfully.
"Hello, Ginny." Harry said and gave Ginny a hug.
"I should go help Mum in the kitchen," Ginny said. She gave Harry a quick kiss, and stood up, "I love you, you know that?" she said smiling.
"I love you too Ginny," Harry said, smiling as well.
Ginny skipped into the kitchen, her red hair bouncing back and forth. Harry sighed and took out a book to read.
Hermione had just finished cleaning the kitchen for when Luna will come over, when an owl popped it's head into her window. Hermione didn't recognize the owl, but it had a letter addressed to Hermione Granger on it. She took the letter from the owl, and the owl flew out the window.
She didn't recognize the handwritting on the letter either. She had no idea who it could possibly be from. She opened up the letter and read it.
You're probably wondering who has sent you this letter, correct? Well, you'll find out eventually. After all these years, I have finally had the courage to write you this letter. Ever since I saw you, I thought you were the most beautiful girl I had ever seen.
Seeing you with Ron Weasley broke my heart. You have meant so much to me for the longest time. I just wanted to let you know that.
You do not have to write me back, but that won't stop me from sending you these letters. Sweet Dreams, Gorgeous.
Your Secret Admirer.Hermione dropped the letter on the counter. She had a secret admirer? Who could it be? She had no idea. She put the letter back into the envelope, and put the envelope on top of her highest cabinet. Hermione hasn't grown much since Hogwarts, so she had to use her wand to put the letter up there.
She had to shake this admirer thing out of her head. Luna will be coming soon, and she didn't want to be stressed out when she did come.
Hermione just hoped this person wasn't going to be like a stalker. Thank goodness she could talk to Luna about it.
The day Luna spent with her father went by a lot faster than she had expected. Before she knew it, they were at the door about to leave.
Mr. Lovegood took out his want and zapped Luna's belongings to Hermione's front door. "You ready sweetie?"
They walked out of the house and her father waited on the front step. "You coming dad?" Luna asked. She thought they would take a carrage or train together.
"No, sweetie. You will Aparate there. I'm getting far too old to be traveling back and forth." her father said.
Luna ran up to her dad and hugged him tight. "I'll miss you so much daddy." Luna said, as a tear escaped her eye and ran down her cheek.
"I'll miss you too baby." he said trying not to get emotional. He grabbed Luna's shoulders, and made her face him, looking him in the eye. "It'll be okay, you'll hopefully come visit me." he smiled and let go of her shoulders.
Luna smiled and whiped away a stray tear. "Of course I'll come visit you, daddy."
Mr. Lovegood smiled and looked at his watch. "You should be heading off now. Hermione might get worried."
"Goodbye, sweetie. Be safe." He said smiling.
"Goodbye Dad. I'll be safe, I promise." Luna said, smiling back.
"Tell Miss Hermione I said 'Hello'"
"I will, and I'll write every week if I can." Luna hugged her dad one last time and headed to the end of the walkway.
She waved at him, and he waved back. Before she knew it, Luna was standing outside Hermione's front door.
Hermione must have heard her aparate because she quickly opened the door and gave Luna a huge hug.
"I missed you so much!" Hermione said.
"Me too!" said Luna, letting go of the hug.
"Wow, Lun, you look beautiful." Hermione said, smiling.
Luna smiled back. "So do you Hermione, I love how you let your hair grow a few inches below your shoulders."
They smiled. "come on, lets go inside, it's pretty chilly." Hermione said grabbing one of Luna's huge trunks and taking them inside. Hermione led Luna to a room not too small and not too big. Perfect for Luna.
"This is your room" Hermione said smiling, "I hope you like it!" Hermione set down one of Luna's trunks and Luna walked in and looked around the room after setting the trunk she was carrying down.
The room had blue curtains, and a blue bed spread. This bed was bigger than the one she had at her father's house. She had a desk right next to a window, and an arm chair in the corner. In the other corner there was a gorgeous chesnut wardrobe. She loved the room.
"I love it, Hermione! I love the color!" Luna said, still looking around.
"I'm glad you like it!" Hermione said smiling, "I chose blue because I know since you were a Ravenclaw in school, you must have sort of liked the color."
"I love the color Hermione, it's my favorite." Luna said and turned back to face Hermione.
Hermione then remembered the letter she had gotten earlier that evening. "Oh, yeah! Luna, I need to show you something."
Hermione led Luna into the kitchen. Luna hadn't really grown much either, so she couldn't reach the top cabinet. Hermione took out her wand and brought the letter down. She handed it to Luna. "Read it." Hermione said when Luna gave her a confused look.
Luna read the note and her eyes widened. "Wow, Hermione," Luna said handing the letter back to Hermione, "You have a secret admirer. I wonder who it could be."
"Me too," Hermione said putting the letter back up where no one will find it, and putting her wand away, "I've been trying to figure it out, but I can't come up with any names."
Luna and Hermione sarted to think, when Luna broke the silence.
"Maybe we should wait for another letter. Maybe it will give us more detail." Luna said.
"Yeah, you're right." Hermione said.
Harry laid down in his bed next to Ginny.
"Harry?" Ginny asked
"Yeah, Gin?" Harry asked looking at her.
"Do you think we'll ever get married?" she asked curiously. She has been wanting Harry to propose to her for two years now.
"Er- I don't know, maybe." Harry said turning back to face the other way, trying to avoid her stare.
Ginny seemed to get annoyed by this because she layed down next to Harry facing opposite him.
"Are you mad at me?" Harry asked facing her back.
Ginny sighed, and turned around to look at Harry. "I could never be mad at you." she gave him a quick kiss, "I love you too much."
Harry smiled and kissed her tenderly. "Goodnight, Gin, Love you." Harry said, closing his eyes.
"Love you too Harry." Ginny said and she closed her eyes too.
