Dean and Luna (2:15 A.M.)
Luna had dragged Dean all the way to the bumper cars.
"Oh, c'mon Luna!" Dean whined. "Not this again!"
"Don't be such a cry-baby, Dean!"
"I'm not trying to be one! I'm just remembering the last time when you gave me a whiplash!"
They climbed into separate cars, and they waited as other people piled into their cars. Dean sunk lower into his chair, scared that Luna might hurt him again. The guy who ran the ride went to the control booth and pressed the start button. Soon all the cars jerked forward as they were allowed to drive.
Luna had token off and was in hot pursuit of Dean. "Come back coward! Lemme cream your ass like I have countless times before!"
"No way Jose!" Dean cried out, and he shrieked as Luna swerved her car in his side, sending him spinning out of control.
"You just got served!" she yelled.
"Not if I can help it!"
He righted his car and sped up until he rammed Luna in her back.
Luna turned her car right around, and drove it into the front Dean's car, causing him to go flying out of his car backwards and land outside the bumper car track, hitting his head on the concrete.
"Oh my gosh! Dean!"
Luna jumped out of her car and ran to Dean's side. He was holding his head.
"Damn Luna! You didn't have to knock me so hard!"
"I'm sooooooo sorry Luna!"
"Yeah yeah! Quit your damn whining and help me up!"
Luna helped Dean up, but then they heard a smirk from nearby, and a voice call at them.
"Well, well. Little Dean. Still acting all clumsy as usual."
The two of them turned around to see Cormac McLaggen come towards them. After so long, he still looked good, and Luna's eyes glistened over as a love struck stare overcame her.
"What's good, Luna?"
She giggled and Dean groaned a growl of jealousy.
"I see you're still hanging around dorky Dean."
"HEY!" Dean cried out.
"Shut it, Afro boy. Hey Luna," Cormac said as he pointed at a teddy bear over a vendor's booth, "You see that bear? You want it?"
"I'll win it for you." He handed the vendor guy a dollar.
"Station 7." The vendor man said. "Step right up folks! One more station open! Shoot the target with the water gun and win!"
Dean got up and growled. He handed the vendor man a dollar. "Station 8, kid." the vendor man told him.
"What are you doing?" Cormac asked as Dean sat at the stool next to him.
"Winning that teddy bear for Luna." he replied as he gripped the gun hard, his face set.
"What makes you think you'll beat me again? Let alone six other losers?"
"I just will."
"Hey, let's make this a bit more interesting."
"Whoever wins between the two of us not only wins the bear, but gets to date Luna."
"And if someone loses?"
"The loser has to stay away from Luna."
"Deal." They shook hands.
"Alright kids!" The vendor man yelled. "On your mark...get set...GO!"
The two guys shot the target with dead on accuracy. They were neck and neck. Just a few more inches and-
"We have a winner!" The vendor man shouted.
"Sorry, Dean, but once again, it looks like-"
"Congratulations Number 8!"
"YES!" Dean cried out.
"Way to go Dean!" Luna shouted as she jumped up and down in joy.
"Which one you want kid?" The vendor guy asked, gesturing towards his wall of prizes.
"That one." Dean pointed at a teddy bear.
"'Ere you go, kid," The vendor man handed him the bear.
"Here you go, Luna." Dean handed her the bear, to which Luna hugged tightly.
"Oh Dean! You shouldn't have! I love it!" she cried out as she hugged him tightly.
"Gosh, it was nothing." He said, his cheeks turning a tinted shade of pink.
"Hey Knucklehead Dork!" Cormac called.
Dean turned around. "Excuse m-"
Cormac swung, but Dean ducked, came back up quick, and punched Luna square in the jaw, knocking him out.
"Dean!" Luna cried out in surprise.
"Well, I didn't know what to do! I didn't want him to swing and hit m-"
But he was interrupted by Luna grabbing his face with her hands and kissing him. When she pulled away, both of their cheeks had turned a rosy pink.
"You didn't have to do that for me." she whispered.
"It was my pleasure." he whispered back.
They walked away from the booth, hand in hand, with Luna clutching the teddy bear to her side.
Ron and Hermione (2:15 A.M.)
Ron had dragged Hermione to the new roller coaster, Gravitational Fall. They got in the long line of people who were waiting to ride.
"OHMYGOSH! HERMIONE! IREALLYWANNARIDETHISRIDE! THISWAITISGONNAKILLME!"
"Ron! Don't say it all in one breath dumbass!"
"Sorry! I just can't wait! This is so fucking exciting!"
"Meanwhile we got to in this long shitty line!"
"But it'll be worth it!"
They waited...and waited...and waited...and waited. After 25 minutes of waiting, they finally were at the front of the line waiting be seated. When the next track came in, and everyone emptied out the seats, Ron squealed in delight and jumped into the cart.
"Why are you like that?" Hermione asked as she got in next to him.
"Like a child?"
"Because it's fun!"
The handrails came down, and the person running the ride came over to check to see if the handrails were down tight enough, causing Ron to squeal with even more delight.
"Every day, you act more and more like a five year old," Hermione groaned as the ride started and took off.
They were going at a flat line, turned to the right, and proceeded to climb up a steep hill. Ron was bouncing up and down, unable to conceal his joy.
"’Mione! Thank you for riding with me! I'm ready for this ride!"
"Yeah, yeah. Meanwhile, if you bounce anymore, you just might spring right off the coaster and spiral to the ground." her face lit up at the thought of a squashed Ron in the ground. "On the other hand, keep on bouncing."
They climbed up more and more until they finally stopped at the very top. Hermione and Ron looked down in horror. The drop down was 200 ft. And to make it worse, they were sitting in the very front.
"Hold me. And whatever you do, DON'T...LET...GO!"
Ron grabbed Hermione's arm. Hermione dug her nails into Ron's hand. Then, the coaster dropped.
The pair screamed at the top of their lungs as they plunged 200 feet to the ground at about 80 miles an hour. The hill was at a 90 degree angle, and just as it looked like they were certain to crash through the track, they quickly changed at an angle, and were going at a straight line, going over various humps and hills.
"I'M GONNA KILL YOU WHEN WE GET OFF OF THIS FUCKING KILLER COASTER!"
"I'LL JUST BE GLAD IF WE EVEN LIVE TO SEE THE END OF THIS!"
They closed their eyes for the rest of the ride. The coaster sped on. They finally reached the loop-de-doops. There were three large ones, each of them 100 feet off the ground. It was here the coaster sped up, changing from 80 miles to 110 miles as the coaster charged through the last three loops. Finally they came to the end. Ron and Hermione climbed out, very shaken by their ordeal.
"That...was fucking...AWESOME!" Hermione cried out.
"I toldja ‘Mione! I toldja!"
"Hey, let's go find the others!"
"Alright! And if we have time, we'll come back here!"
"Fine with me!"
Arm in arm, they skipped off, Hermione's bushy hair a complete mess.
Harry and Ginny (2:15 A.M.)
Ginny had dragged Harry all the way to the tunnel of love, where they waited in line with all the other the couples. There was just one difference that separated Harry and Ginny from the others in line: The other couples were actually in love with each other.
"Ginny, I really don't wanna do this!"
"Oh c'mon Harrykins! This'll be fun!"
"Yes, really! Oh we're gonna have a romantic time in here!"
Harry looked over the pier and literally froze. He had forgotten that the ride was taking place on a little boat for two. But it wasn't the boat that made him concerned. What made him scared was the fact that if they were in a boat, that meant they would be floating...over water.
"Yes, my handsome Harrykins?"
"Why didn't you tell me we'd be floating over w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-"
"Yes, that word!"
"Well didn't you know beforehand that the tunnel of love always floats on water?"
"Had I known that, do ya think we'd be here?"
"Don't sweat it, Harrykins, I'll help you get in the boat."
Pretty soon, they had reached the front of the line, and when their turn came, an empty boat sailed its way towards them. Ginny got in first, but Harry was hesitant to get in.
"Ginny, I'm a little scared..." Harry whispered to her as he pointed down at the water.
"Don't worry, just grab my hand and I'll help you in." she whispered back.
She held his arm, and slowly and gently, Harry lowered himself into the boat. The person in charge of the ride made sure that the seat belt was buckled and that the two were safe inside.
"Now, you two lovebirds have a good time!" He told them as he started the ride. Ginny squealed in delight as she clung onto Harry, and Harry groaned as he wondered why he was on the ride to begin with.
They sailed into the tunnel where there were romantic animations playing on the wall and romantic displays of people and animal statues engaging in loving acts such as hugging, kissing, and cuddling. Ginny 'oooh'ed, 'ahhh'ed, and sighed at her surroundings. Harry was disgusted by the mere sight of it. He looked over the edge of the boat into the water and stared at his reflection. Despite his fear of water, he felt the sudden urge to jump out the boat and drown.
Halfway through the ride, Harry turned to look at Ginny, only to find that the way Ginny was staring at the statues and the animations, and the way the pink, purple, and red lighting hit her face at an angle made her look quite pretty. Even her honey brown eyes stood out from her face.
She turned to look at him, and uttered out a small gasp when Harry place the palm of his hand on her cheek.
"There's something you should know."
"What is it?"
"It's about your face..."
"Yes...?" the suspense was killing her as she sported a small smile.
"You should really wipe out that eye booger that's sitting there on the inner corner of your eye."
She huffed out a frustrated sigh and wiped her eye.
"Way to be romantic, Harry Potter!"
"Hey, I didn't say I'd actually be romantic."
She turned away, and placed her chin in her hand as she stared at the scenery with a frustrated look on her face. Harry leaned over and planted a soft kiss on her cheek, causing her to snap back around and look at him, eyes widening.
"I also didn't say I'd surprise you."
"I didn't say you couldn't surprise me," she giggled softly.
"Oh. Then you'll be just fine then."
She laughed softly as she playfully hit him on his chest, before resting her head on his shoulder and holding his hand for the rest of the ride. When it ended, they unbuckled the seat belt, and climbed out. Ginny was about to skip off when Harry yanked her by the wrist.
"Ow! Harry! What gives?"
But he pulled her back into his chest. When she looked up at him, he leaned down and planted a kiss on her lips for a few seconds before pulling away.
"Wow..." she whispered.
"Hey, what can I say? When I actually give a damn, I can surprise anyone."
"You sure surprised me tonight..."
"I guess I did. Oh, and Ginny, one more thing."
"Anything Harrykins..." Her eyes glistened over and she became love struck.
Harry then transitioned from a normal voice to a growling tone. "If you as so much as HINT to the others as to what happened between us just now, I'll kill your ass so bad, it won't even be funny."
She linked her arm with Harry, and the duo walked off to find the others.
The Fairway (2:45 A.M.)
The group all met up in the Fairway, an area where the food court was found. They sat down at a table.
"So," Hermione began, "How was everyone's night-morning so far?"
"Well Dean won me another teddy bear!" Luna squealed as she kissed Dean on the cheek.
"Aw shucks, it was nothing." Dean said as he blushed again.
"Me and Harry went on the Tunnel of Love!" Ginny sighed as she put her head on Harry's shoulder.
"And I hated every moment of it." Harry stated as he pushed Ginny off him. He wasn't about to admit anytime soon that he actually liked it, or reveal that he kissed her.
"Snore. Bo-o-o-o-o-ring!" Ron said. "Me and ‘Mione went on the sickest coaster!"
"Ooooh! Gravitational Fall?" Dean said.
"Yuppers!" Hermione exclaimed.
"We should go on it!" Luna said. The others agreed.
"Well let's go then!" Ron said.
They all got up, but a voice called out to them.
"Stop right there! You gang of young teens!"
They turned around. A police officer was coming towards them, and Cormac McLaggen was following. Dean smirked with a satisfied look as he noticed that Cormac had a cut lip and a bruised, puffy jaw.
"That's him officer! That's the guy who assaulted me!" Cormac cried out as he pointed at Dean.
"Son, you're under arrest." The officer said as he took out his handcuffs and waited for Dean to step forward.
"Guys! What do we do?" Dean whispered.
"I have an idea," Ron whispered, "It's not a really smart idea, but it's better than nothing."
"What is it?" Hermione whispered.
"RUN FOR YOUR FUCKING LIVES!" Ron screamed at the top of his lungs.
Without second thoughts, the gang took off through the park.
And they're running for their lives! Thanks a lot, Cormac!
Will the gang manage to escape the police?
Will they get arrested?
How much crazier is this night going to get?
Find out next time!
