"Welcome first years! Its time to get sorted!"Said Professor Mcgonagall in her sharp voice. Rose was so nervous! Would she be in ravenclaw, hufflepuff, Gryffindor? Definitely not slytherin it was just impossible with the family she was from.
She was looking around at the first years when a blonde hair boy caught her eye. She recognized him from the train station. Daddy had said "don't talk to him, rosie, infact don't even look at him". She didn't understand why though, he looked okay. While she was thinking about that she didn't notice him turn around and look at her, he was smiling and when she noticed she blushed and smiled back. She then saw Professor Longbottom look at her and give her an encouraging smile. She was glad she knew someone other than albus right now.
"Malfoy, Scorpius Hyperion" Called Professor McGonagall. Then she knew why daddy had said to stay away from him. He was a malfoy.
"SLYTHERIN!" the sorting hat called.
Rose was sad, to say the least. A little heartbroken too. She wanted to get to know him better. Luckily she had heard the gryffindors and slytherins had a lot of classes together.
"Potter, Albus Severus" Called Professor McGonagall. She placed the hat on his head. They seemed to be having a conversation (similar to harry's).
"GRYFFINDOR!"yelled the sorting hat!
"Weasley,Rose Lilac" She called.
Rose walked to the stool and professor McGonagall placed the hat on her head.
"another Weasley, eh, Hermione and rons daughter no?"
"yes, I am."
"brains, bravery, wit, hmmmm, you seem to have your eye on the malfoy boy. Well it'll have to be- GRYFFINDOR!"
Rose went over to the Gryffindor table and sat by Al and James. She looked over to the slytherin table and saw one person applauding. Scorpius.
As sorting ended and the feast began, Rose barely noticed what she was eating. She just kept thinking about Scorpious and those gorgeous grey eyes that were kind, and beautiful. Albus had a funny look on his face, as if he knew his uncle would kill Rose if he knew who she was daydreaming about. Rose ignored it, taking another bite of mac and cheese. Suddenly, she was pulled from her daydream when she realized Scorpius wasn't in his seat anymore. Where had he gone? A few minutes of confusion passed before Rose understood. Scorpius had walked down to the table.
"I couldn't help noticing…what beautiful cherry hair you have. It's lovely." He held out his hand to shake.
"I'm Scorpius. Do you have a name, love?" Rose blushes as red as her hair.
"Rose." He kissed her hand, which was still in his for some odd reason. Scorpius then got an odd expression of embarrasment on his face.
"I'm s-sorry," he apologized, running off so she wouldn't see the tears in his eyes. He was certain he'd come on too strong and was kicking himself for it, but Rose was smiling happily to herself. He liked her. That couldn't have been greater.
James And Al were now looking at where he had been clearly thinking *did Malfoy seriously JUST do that?* and thinking of ways to kill him. But luckily the feast ended and they went up to their dorms.
Rose woke early that morning and ran down the stairs to breakfast. Scorpius was trying to sit with the Gryffindors but Albus and James wouldn't let him.
"Hey, let him sit there!" She yelled.
"He doesn't belong here Rose, he's a Slytherin." Albus spat. Rose sighed heavily.
"Fine, I'll go sit a Slytherin table." Hurt that she's ditched him for a slimy Slytherin, Albus stormed out of the great hall. Rose ate with Scorpius but not much talking went on. Both were too shy to talk about what had happened the night before. Scorpius was still ashamed and Rose was just too giddy. After breakfast, Scorpius walked Rose to her seat in Transfiguration and finally said "would you…like to go out, Saturday night?"
"I would love too!" She said, disregarding what her father would say.
"I'll pick you up at seven. Until then," He said kissing her hand again. Rose spent the rest of class thinking of ways to get her dad to let her go. She decided to just say "I'm going out with a friend" yep that should work. After all, he was a friend. A hot, sweet, wonderful friend.
And so she did "dear mum and dad,
Im going out with a friend on Saturday! I hope you guys are happy that im socializing, and if Al or James say anything about first night just ignore it. Anyways please owl me back! Love, Rose."
All week she had to try to focus to not focus on scorpius and their date. And then FINALLY it was Saturday and Rose had a light green dress on. They were going to the three broomsticks. She went down to the common to say bye to Rachel her friend. But she just happen to run into Al and James.
"Hey Rose, whatcha doing?" they said in unison.
"um, im going out with a friend, so can I go? Thanks" she said trying to get through.
"and who is this 'friend' asked Al, as he and james followed her to the portrait hole.
"oh well, er, Scorpius" she said quickly as she stepped through leaving behind two very stunned and angry boys.
When Rose got to the three broomsticks she looked for Scorpius but couldn't find him. Then she felt someone grab her hand.
"Hello, love, may I escort you to our table?"
"yes, you may." Said rose blushing.
When they were seated they ordered to butterbeers.
"youre looking very lovely to night, my lionrosebud." Said scorpius making rose blush.
"well I could say the same to you, my hypersnake."
Scorpius adored the way the light was shinning in Rose's blue-green eyes. It made her all the more beautiful. He wanted nothing more than to kiss her, but he thought better of it. What if she rejected him? He decided to take it nice and slow. They both ordered salad and some butterbeer, then a lovely slow song came on.
"Would you care to dance? We have time to spear before the waitor come back." She took his hand and he led her to a small gazebo just outside the restruant.
"This is wonderful." Rose said, leaning her head on his chest as they danced.
"This is our song." He whispered, pulling her a little closer. Rose looked him in the eyes and leaned forward. Scorpius's heart skipped a beat. Did she want him to kiss her? He decided to take the chance. He leaned in and gently captured her lips, using his right hand to softly brush her hair from her face.
"I think…" He took a deep breath before he could finally muster up the courage to say it.
"I think I might love you." he whispered.
"I know that I love you." She said back, leaning in for another kiss. After their salad, the night came to a perfect end when Scorpius took Rose on a boat ride out in the middle of the lake, where they shared yet another sweet, adoreable, kiss.
Scorpius walked Rose back to the portrait.
"Tonight was perfect Scorp,thankyou" said Rose hugging him.
"anything for you, my lovely Rosebud" he said hugging her back. They shared one more kiss and then he left.
She said the password then entered the common room, not expecting anyone to be there.
"Why hello, Rose, how was your date tonight?" said Al.
"why were you not here an hour ago its ten!" said james.
"we-well you see-" started rose.
"what happened on your date with that bloody git Malfoy" they said together. She told them all that had happened.
"please don't tell mum and dad! Please!" plead Rose.
"we'll think about it" Al said for them.
"for now why don't you go to bed?" said James.
"good night." Said rose.
She heard nothing in reply.
