Beyond Gorgeous CI by fayeswonderland @TDA
She's not a saint, And she's not what you think,
She's an actress, whoa, But she's better known,
For the things that she does on the mattress, whoa.
The next morning I woke to find a very angry Dom sitting at the end of my bed, in her uniform, and her Pin straight blonde hair perfectly done.
“Are you barking?,” ?.” She practically yelled. “Wait of course you are, I mean what else would drive you to quit Quidditch”, she continued her eyes narrowing with each word she said.
“He was being a total prick and you know it Dom.” I muttered.
“Oh I know that, what I don’t get Is why you let it get to you.” She said looking a little frightening.
“Anyway,” Evie butted in,
“James say’s he knows he was unfair and your on your last chance.”
I glanced over at her, she was at the mirror doing her hair, curling it to perfection.
“Well, at least he knows he was wrong.” I grumbled.
“Great, Practice is at 7am tomorrow.” Dom said matter of factly,
“Don’t be late.” She through me a tiny smile, grabbed Evie’s arm and pulled her from the room.
I stared at the door then, stumbled from my bed, the mass of gold and red sheets tangling round my legs, I shook them of, and grabbed my uniform, Underwear, shirt, tie, skirt, tights and jumper and stumbled my way into the bathroom, a small smile playing on my lips from my encounter with Damon last night.
He called me pretty…
I got ready, and looked in the mirror, I looked awful.
My curly blonde locks were all over. I tipped my head upside down and grabbed my hair forcing it into a messy ponytail, I then proceeded to apply a tiny bit of mascara to my eyelashes and a layer of glossy red lip gloss.
I found my bag under a pile of Dom’s “best” bras and left he dormitories, heading towards my first class, Potions.
Unfortunately Dom and Evie are in ancient runes, so it’s just me, Freddie and James.
Notice the sarcasm?
Making my way into the class I took my seat in the middle of the room next to Freddie, James was on his other side.
He didn’t look mad, but quite laid back and relaxed.
Maybe someone drugged him?
Or he’s under the imperius curse.
“Look, James, about yesterday-“ I started nervously,
“Don’t worry about it Chase, I was wrong, lets leave it at that.” He responded, giving me a small smile.
Wow, obviously imperius.
“Any way it made for good entertainment.” Freddie chimed in.
“Shut up Fred.” Both James and me muttered simultaneously
I looked around the room, noticing Katie Longbottem give me a slight smile, I returned this with a wave.
My eyes landed on Damon, He caught me looking and flashed me a smile,
I smiled back, blushing a little.
“Elle’s got a cr-ush.” Freddie sang, noticing my blush and my smile.
“I swear Freddie shut up.” I whispered.
“Oh come on Ellie, You-“ Fred began,
“Jamie!” A shrill voice cut in.
I groaned, and started to continuously bang me head against the table.
Cassidy McMillan Is the most viscous, mean, conceited, stuck-up, vein girl I have ever had the misfortune to meet. She’s around 5’7, with long, dark pin straight hair, a perfectly sculptured face, and a set of cold, ice blue eyes to match. In every respect she was gorgeous, but she knew that. She was one of James’s ex girlfriends back in 6th year, she’s completely and utterly obsessed with him, Merlin knows why.
I glanced up and the slim figure that had just sat itself on the desk in front of James.
“Aren’t’ you looking handsome this year” she leaned in and purred at him.
Beside me Freddie was shaking with laughter, his large shoulder knocking into me, I peered around him and looked at James’s face, a look of pure horror flashed across it before he put on a mask and smirked.
“lo’ Cassie.” He said casually. “What can I do for you.?”.
“Well you see, I’ve been feeling a little lonely lately and was wondering if you wanted to ditch these losers and join me.?” She purred, I think in her mind it was meant to come seductive, whereas is sounded as though she was chocking.
What? I can dream can't I?
James looked a little mad as she finished the sentence and looked at her with a cold look, “One of those losers, is my cousin, and the other is a member of my team, I’d think before you speak, Cass.” He muttered giving her a cold look.
I couldn’t help it, I snorted, rather loudly.
Her cold eyes found me and a wicked smile appeared on her face, “Oh, Elle dear, I thought that curse got rid of you.” She laughed coldly.
“You?.” I whispered.
“Of course, I couldn’t let you speak to my Jamie like that.” She smirked proudly.
I’m going to slap a bitch.
“You little whor-“ I seethed, my face going cold, I reached for my wand,
Where the fuck is my wand?
I looked round and noticed Freddie had it.
He looked fearful about what I would do.
“Give.Me.My.Wand.” I said slowly, my eyes narrowed.
He glanced at me his face calm.
“No.” He responded, “I’m not going to let you stoop to her level.”
I looked at him calmly, he wasn’t going to give in.
I glanced at Cassie, she was looking in, smirking.
“Fine, there’s other way’s to a hurt a witch.” I smiled.
I stood up and punched her straight in nose.
I took a moment to hear the satisfying crunch, and watch the brief flash of fear cross her face before all hell broke lose.
“You cow, my nose!” she screeched, her nose spewing with blood, she launched at my throat.
I was pulled out of the way and dragged out of the class that was no in absolute chaos, people where screaming, gathering round the bloodied girl that Freddie was holding back, Some where laughing at the situation and cheering, Others looked shocked, one of those was Damon.
I didn’t know where I was being dragged off to until we reached the Gryffindor common room, and I was being pulled up the stairs to the boys dormitories.
As we entered, I was dragged across the dirty, untidy room, and thrown onto a bed.
I looked up at James, who had sat himself of the floor and was pinching the end of his nose in frustration.
“I’m sorry.” I murmured quietly.
He peered up slowly a look of outrage appearing on his face.
“Your sorry?, What are you sorry for?, If you hadn’t punched her then im damn sure I would of.” He seethed.
I looked at him, my mouth open in shock.
“Your not mad I hit her?.” I said in disbelief.
“No, I’m mad that she thinks it’s okay the go around hexing and cursing people, I’m mad that you could get into trouble.” He continued.
“It’s okay.” I said quietly, moving to join him on the floor.
We sat side by side, not saying a word.
“Elle, I know I’ve been a prick to you, and I am really sorry, can we start again?, friends?” He whispered looking at me.
He looked so lost and broken, I’d never seen this side to James Potter before, he looked sincere and apologetic.
“Sure, Friends.” I replied, a small smile on my face.
We both sat there side my by side for a couple minutes in silence.
“SHIT.” I started, wide eyed.
“What,” he looked round alarmed.
“Words bound to have gotten round about this, and that means-“ I began
“Dom.” James finished a look of panic on his face.
Dom Weasley was going to kill Cassie McMillan.
