428 views! thanks everyone.
Here's the next post.
Let me know what you think.


That day Ellouise spent the majority of her time in the green drawing room. Here she received plenty of visitors, some that she knew, and most that she didn’t. People came to listen to her story and her experience, also wishing her a speedy recovery. Professor Dumbledore and Professor Snape had been among the first to visit her that morning. They both seemed to be relieved that she was recovering. Professor Dumbledore also brought with him a small crystal vial of clear liquid, it was remarkably small, it looked as though it only held three or four drops. “Phoenix tears”, he whispered in her ear. Ellouise smiled and thanked him. She couldn’t help but think that he needed them more than her, Dumbledore’s right hand appeared to be shrivelled and black, a faint mark on one of his fingers suggested he had been wearing a ring at the time of whatever incident took place. It looked like nasty business. Dumbledore noticing her gaze smiled and simply said, “Even I have a lot to learn about magic.”

After they had left she went upstairs and had a relaxing shower. Her wound was healing quite well now, so the ointment had served its purpose. Ellouise pulled the stopper out of the miniscule vial and released a single drop of the phoenix tears onto what was left of her wound. Immediately it began to clear up, then she emptied the rest of the vial onto her wound. It was amazing. Ellouise felt her skin, it was soft and smooth. Best of all there was no more pain, it was as if nothing had happened. She smiled to herself and changed into fresh clothes. Ellouise pulled on a pair of skinny leg black jeans, followed by her trademark knee high black boots. She then pulled on a tight long sleeve, scoop neck, grey cotton shirt over her beige singlet.

Ellouise left the bathroom, but immediately wishing she hadn’t. Three whizzing firecrackers went flying by, missing her by an inch, they twisted and turned until they eventually exploded into showers of red and gold.
“Did you like our crackers?” asked Fred... or was it George? Ellouise couldn’t tell. Both of the Weasley twins were well-humoured but also troublesome, and inexplicably identical. There were times when Ellouise was sure even they couldn’t tell each other apart.
“Yeah, they were great, just try not to blow anyone’s face off with them will you”, she replied as she skipped down the stairs, a huge grin on her face.
“You look well”, came a deep voice. Ellouise turned and looked up at the flight of stairs above her, Charlie was peering over the edge, his arms casually crossed in front of him.
“Why thank you, I do feel much better”, replied Ellouise, “You coming down for lunch?” she asked.
Charlie began to descend the stairs, “Absolutely”, he said, “How could I miss it?” he asked in return. Ellouise just shrugged and led the way to the kitchen as Charlie and the twins brought up the rear. Harry, Ron and Ginny were sitting in the drawing room by the fire playing a game of exploding snap, Ginny appeared to be winning. The kitchen was emptier than usual, Carlisle and Anton sat at one end of the kitchen table and Xavier sat at the other. Things still hadn’t settled between Xavier and Anton, and though Anton wasn’t exiled or punished by any physical means he certainly was ignored and berated by most of the Order members, Ellouise couldn’t help feel a little sorry for him. Xavier looked up and smiled as she approached, followed by the Weasley’s. Quickly he folded the letter he was holding and stuffed it into his jacket pocket. “You look a lot better”, he said as he pat the bench next to him. Ellouise sat beside him, the Weasley’s sat on the opposite side of them.
“I feel a lot better”, she replied, nudging him playfully in the ribs. Xavier nudged back and immediately started apologising for hurting her. Ellouise just laughed, “You didn’t hurt me Xav. I really am better. Look,” she said as she lifted up the side of her shirt. Xavier looked slightly confused, “But how?” he asked.
“Dumbledore gave me something for it. Cleared it up straight away”, she said as she summoned the house elf Kreacher. The house elf that appeared before them was old, and frail looking. Many folds of skin hung from his body as if it had belonged to somebody else and didn’t fit him properly. White hairs sprouted from his ears and his long crooked nose.
“Yes Miss Browne?” he asked obediently though he muttered something rude under his breath.
“Manners Kreacher,” reminded Xavier. The house elf nodded.
“Lunch please Kreacher, Im in a mood for French”, said Ellouise.
“I’ll have the same”, added Xavier.
“So will we”, piped up Charlie.
“Yes Master Black sir”, said Kreacher bowing deeply toward his owner. He bowed in Ellouise’s direction also but muttered under his breath in the direction of the Weasley’s, Ellouise could only just make out the word blood traitor.

After a delicious lunch of wild mushroom and chicken voul au vents the Weasley twins headed for the green drawing room, Charlie went over and talked to Carlisle and Anton which left Xavier and Ellouise alone.
“So, whose the letter from?” she asked casually. Xavier pulled out the not slightly crumpled letter and thrust it in her direction.
“Uncle Regulus”, he said.
Ellouise opened the letter, it was short:

Xavier,
It’s been a while since I’ve heard from you. I hope all is well at the HQ. I am on a mission with Dumbledore, it’s incredibly dangerous, but it will all be worth it in the end. I’m sorry I can’t say much more. Just know this, if I die before I see you again, know that I love you. And take care of your father for me, though he doesn’t want to admit it, he needs to be looked after.
Your loving Uncle,
Regulus.


Ellouise put an arm around Xavier’s shoulder, “I’m sure he’ll be ok, probably just being cautious.”

Thats ok Claire... but please do keep commenting. It keeps me going
Next post!


Order meetings were happening less frequently than they had been, it was strange because head quarters became strangely deserted and quiet. This was mostly due to the absence of Professor Dumbledore. Many of the members as well as Ellouise were concerned that his lack of participation was due to some serious health problem. Ellouise reminisced on the day Dumbledore had come to visit her, his hand shrivelled and blackened, as if the limb itself was dying and rotting away. Many thoughts had crossed her mind in regards to the cause of such a thing. Ellouise, Xavier, the Smith’s and the Weasley’s had come to the conclusion that it Dumbledore must have come into contact with a very serious, very dark curse. But as to how this may have happened they were clueless.

With not much happening at the Order, Ellouise found that she spent a great deal of time thinking of her parents, every night she had the same horrid nightmare and every night she woke up drenched in sweat. Still she didn’t know what to do. She didn’t know where they were, only that there was a possibility that they were being held at the Ministry of Magic. What Ellouise needed was a plan. She needed to figure out where to get the information she required, and then how to execute a rescue mission. The hard part was knowing where to begin.
“What’s on your mind Elle?” asked Charlie.
Ellouise blinked, she had been so focused on her thoughts that she hadn’t realised that she wasn’t alone. Ellouise turned in her seat by the fire to see Charlie laying on the couch staring at her with a curious expression on his face.
“My parents”, she replied slowly, the sadness clearly etched on her face. Charlie sat up and motioned for her to join him. Ellouise got up and wandered over to the couch, letting herself fall into its soft cushions. Charlie held out his arm so that she could rest her head on his chest, but she didn’t move.
“I can’t stop thinking about them. Every night I have the same dream...”, she trailed off. Nobody knew about the nightmares, not even Remus. Charlie raised an eyebrow, “what’s the dream about?” he asked cautiously.
“Well... I suppose it’s more of a nightmare than a dream.” Ellouise sighed. “I keep reliving the night that they were taken, still see the horrible things play over and over again.”
“I know something that might take your mind off things”, said Charlie suddenly as he stood up.
Ellouise just looked at him blankly, but took his hand to help her up.
“Do you have a coat?” he asked, “You’ll need it.”
Ellouise hurried upstairs and grabbed her black pea coat and her pair of black dragon hide gloves, she then slipped on her black boots and rushed back down the stairs. She welcomed anything that could take her mind off her parents even if it was only for a few hours.

When she reached the bottom of the stairs Charlie was waiting for her, he too had on a pair of gloves and his thick red plaid jacket.
“Very chic”, said Charlie as Ellouise descended the stairs, “You sure you want to be seen with me?” he asked smiling broadly. Ellouise smiled, “Where’re we going?” she asked as she hastily wrote a note on a spare piece of parchment and left it on the coffee table in the drawing room.
“That’s for me to know and you to find out”, he said as he held out his hand. Ellouise took it and was immediately swept off her feet, her surroundings just becoming a hazy swirl of blacks and greys. A second later she felt her feet hit the ground. She and Charlie were standing in a paddock with grass that was too high to see over. It was a bright day, though there was a bitter cold breeze that stung her eyes. In the distance she could she hills with rolling green meadows.
“This is the area where I grew up”, said Charlie as he began walking toward the forest that was behind her. “We live just over that hill, this is our neighbours property. I doubt he will mind. He’s been in hiding since you-know-who returned, though of course we wouldn’t know the difference if he was alive or dead.” Ellouise jogged to catch up, turning in circles to take in her surroundings.
“Oh I forgot something...” said Charlie suddenly looking concerned.
“What is it?”
“Um... how are you at conjuring live sheep? I’ve never been very good at it.” He said. Ellouise raised an eyebrow quizzically.
“Not very good”, she replied, but she took out her wand none the less, swishing it in the direction of a couple of tree stumps and muttering something underneath her breath. The tree stumps shuddered and shifted, and suddenly they weren’t tree stumps at all.
“I’m good at transfiguration though”, she said smiling at Charlie’s bewildered expression. “Yeah, I never got the hang of that, you’ll have to tutor me”, he replied.
“So what do we need the sheep for?” asked Ellouise, though she had a vague idea as to why anyone would need sheep deep in a thick dark forest.
“You’ll see,” replied Charlie, he paused briefly, “You have to promise not to tell anyone though, nobody knows. Especially not my mum, I swear she’d have a heart attack and then she’d kill me. If anyone asks we were just out on a walk, getting some fresh air.”

New post!

They continued walking through the thick forest guiding the sheep as best they could before resorting to magic and levitating them through the trees. “Almost there”, said Charlie, “You’re going to love this, it’s a special treat”, he said as he grinned once more. Ellouise got a sick feeling in her stomach, if it involved live sheep and a dark foreboding forest it was sure to be an experience, though at this point she wasn’t sure if this was one that she wanted. The soon reached a large meadow by a hillside. And in the side of the hill Ellouise could just make out a dark shape which appeared to be the mouth to a cave. She held her breathe while Charlie whistled. Ellouise was rooted to the spot with excitement and fear, she watched on as a long large figure came stomping out of the cave. Ellouise couldn’t believe her eyes, the large figure had bright orange eyes like lanterns, was smooth-scaled and copper-coloured with charming black-ridge markings. Its short horns seemed out of proportion with its long fangs, and its long tail trailed behind it.
“I’d like you to meet Cito and Cornu. Aren’t they beautiful?” asked Charlie. They? Thought Ellouise, she looked back at the marvellous creature and sure enough standing behind it was a slightly shorter version.
“Are they Peruvian Vipertooth’s?” she asked in amazement as she watched the two dragons slowly approach them, wings raised threateningly and nostrils flaring.
“Yep, they sure are”, replied Charlie gleefully as he threw the dragons the sheep. “They’re the smallest and swiftest dragons known to the wizarding kind”, he said as he watched them devour the prey. “ They do prefer to feed on humans rather than livestock, but since the International Confederation of Wizards was forced to exterminate a vast number of the Vipertooth population they have become more complacent. Plus I’ve known these two for about eight years now. I saw them hatch from their eggs”, he added. “Don’t worry, they won’t bite, they’re surprisingly domesticated”. Ellouise hesitated and hung back as Charlie approached them, an arm outstretched. The larger of the two dragons, about eleven feet in length, lowered its head in Charlie’s direction, allowing him to stroke its smooth glistening scales. Slowly Ellouise approached the dragons, their giant lantern eyes watching her every step. Charlie stood close to Ellouise’s side and motioned for her to put out her hand. As she did the bigger dragon pulled its head up apprehensively then dipped it back down, sniffing at her. Its hot breath warmed her like a furnace, huffing and puffing curiously. Soon she was patting and stroking its smooth scales, they felt surprisingly cold. She had expected the dragons body to feel warm and comforting like a hot water bottle almost like its breath, but instead it was icy cold.
“What do you think?” asked Charlie as he watched her intently waiting for a reaction.
“I think they’re brilliant”, replied Ellouise, still in awe.
“Fantastic, hop on then. Cito is a gentle flyer”, he said gesturing to the bigger dragon.
Ellouise froze. “Hop on?” she repeated, a nervousness in her voice.
“Yeah, I want to take you flying”, he said as if it was a normal thing to do with a dragon.
“You, you ride them?” she stuttered.
Charlie just grinned and climbed onto the dragons sleek back, fitting comfortable behind its wings. He held out his hand to help pull Ellouise up and she took it. She found it difficult to clamber aboard even with Charlie’s help and she couldn’t help but wonder how many times he had done it before if he found it so easy. The dragons scales were silky smooth, and it was all too easy for her to slip and slide around on its back. In the end Ellouise flung her arms around Charlie’s middle and held on tightly resting her head against his back.
“You ready?” he asked.
“Suppose I don’t have a choice”, Ellouise replied.
And with that they were off, the dragon had lowered its body tactfully and kicked off hard. It soared up toward the sky, flapping its copper wings furiously until it got high enough above the cloud bank before letting itself glide gracefully, cutting through wisps of cloud with its long tail. Ellouise peered down over the side of the dragon, its wings outstretched like sails guiding it smoothly through the air. They were surrounded by a sea of soft fluffy clouds, the sun shone from somewhere just in front of them, it almost seemed as if it was within reaching distance. Charlie had been right, Cito was incredibly gentle and incredibly swift. Ellouise felt as though she was on top of the world, and she really was.
“Thanks Charlie”, she whispered in his ear.

What do you think?

Thanks harita! means a lot to me that ur reading it Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
New post!... tad short.


“So where did you two go?” asked a very concerned Remus later that night. Ellouise and Charlie had been gone for most of the day and arrived home just in time for dinner. Everyone had their eyes on them as they entered the kitchen, cheeks flushed red from the bitter cold winds outside. Molly Weasley looked her son up and down and circled around him before going on a tirade about wow two teenagers shouldn’t be going out on walks during these troublesome times, and how foolish we were to go and not let anyone know where they were. Ellouise had interrupted her at this point and immediately regretted it, “But I left a note”, she had said. Molly looked at her for a moment before continuing her spiel about safety during dark times.
“We went to Mt Snowdon, I needed to get some fresh air, some space to think. Charlie didn’t think I should go alone so he came with me.” She had said. This was a believable story, Ellouise had loved that region of Wales since she was an infant. She had always gone there when she was troubled by her thoughts. She knew the mountain range and the national park better than anyone else, it was her... safe haven.
Molly and Arthur looked from Ellouise to Remus, as if waiting for him to confirm that it was true. Remus nodded. “I suppose I should have known”, he said as he scooped up some more mashed potato onto his fork.
Everyone turned back to their food and their loved ones and the kitchen was soon filled with cheerful voices and laughter.
“Would you like some pumpkin juice with that little brother?” asked one of the Weasley twins to Ron. He eyes them both sceptically but noticing that other people were drinking pumpkin juice he accepted. After one of the twins poured Ron a glass and went to pour a second Ron took a sip. Harry suddenly burst out laughing, tears welling in his eyes as he tried to control himself, his arms clutching his stomach. Ellouise looked up to see that Ron had turned a very vibrant shade of orange and his head had swelled to the size of a pumpkin. Molly was not impressed to say the least and chased the twins out of the kitchen, dragging Ron behind her.

“I would have gone with you,” came a voice from beside her. Ellouise turned to look at Xavier, his deep grey eyes piercing hers.
“I know”, she said smiling as she nudged him with her elbow.
“It’s ok Xavier, I can look after her”, came Charlie’s voice from across the table. He and Xavier starred at each other for a moment. “That’s nice, but she can look after herself”, replied Xavier, his eyes flashing.
Ellouise shifted her gaze between them, “Maybe next time I’ll just go on my own”. She said as she stood and left the kitchen. What had gotten into Xavier? Why was he being so rude to Charlie? The look he had in his eyes gave her a shiver that run from her fingers to her toes, it shook her. But she couldn’t help smiling to herself, he cared.

Yes Claire, I know full well how you feel about Ellie/Xav. So I hope you enjoy this particular post.
Thnx Harita... (is it harita? I assume because of ur username)... Im also an Ellie/Xav-shipper but relationships are complicated
Enjoy!... more tomorow.


Ellouise sat in front of the dwindling fire in the green drawing room, her eyes were growing heavy and they struggled to stay focused on the words written in her book. She dog-eared the page she was finishing and closed it, setting it down on the floor at her feet. It was late, almost everyone had gone to bed. The Weasley twins, Charlie, Percy, Xavier and Carlisle were down in the kitchen playing a game of cards. She was contemplating going to bed when Charlie came up from the kitchen, his hands shoved deep into his pockets. He smiled and went to take a seat beside her on the couch.
“What were you reading?” he asked gesturing at the book on the floor.
Ellouise stared down at the book, its black leather binding frayed at the edges and faded.
“Legilimency and occlumency”, she said, stifling a yawn in between.
“Impressive”, began Charlie, “You can’t... can you?” he asked squinting at Ellouise as if trying to keep her from reading his mind. Ellouise laughed, “No, I can’t, not yet”, she said as she picked up the book and stroked its rough surface.
“My father was going to teach me...” she added in a whisper.
“I’m so sorry”, said Charlie, he moved closer to Ellouise and made a move to put his arm around her. Ellouise pulled away from him as politely as she could, pulling her legs onto the couch and wrapping her arms around her knees.
“It’s hard... not knowing where they are, or whether they’re still alive.” Charlie edged a little closer to her, turning his body so that he was facing her directly. Ellouise twirled her hair through her fingers. The soft silky black tendrils wrapping around them like ribbon. “It’s been four weeks now”, she continued, her voice a bit more hoarse than before.
“Ssshhh... it’s ok”, he soothed, “It’s only a matter of time before this all comes to an end. You’ll see them again.”
Ellouise turned to face him, letting her legs hang back over the edge of the couch.
“I’ve got to do something”, she whispered suddenly as she made to stand up. “I have to get them back.”
“How do you plan on doing that?” asked Charlie, “You planning on walking up to the Ministry to visit he-who-must-not-be-named and demand to get them back?...It’s suicide. Your better of waiting here till the Order find them”, he said, hoping that she would see reason.
“Visiting Voldemort sounds like a good idea”, she said. Charlie flinched as Ellouise said the dark lords name.
“Don’t you dare”, he replied.
Ellouise huffed a little, “What say his name? It’s not that big of a deal, fear of the name only increases the fear of the thing itself.”
“That’s not what I meant...don’t you dare go after him.”
“What do you care?” she asked, one hand limp at her side, the other clasped around the black book. Charlie stood up, towering over her slightly.
“I care because you’re a good person, a clever, funny person. I care because I like you, Elle... I like you. And I’m not going to keep quiet about it anymore,” he whispered as he closed the gap between them. Ellouise felt her heart skip a beat, her stomach writhed with butterflies as she felt Charlie place his arm around her waist and rested his hand in the small of her back, he pulled her in gently, tilting up her chin with his free hand and then his lips grazed hers.

haha thnks for the comment Claire. I'm sorry but I can't make any promises. Anyway:
Next Post! Enjoy.


Ellouise let him kiss her, his soft lips gliding over hers smoothly, leaving a tingling sensation in its wake. But eventually Ellouise pulled away, a hand outstretched in front of her, gently pushing Charlie back.
“I’m sorry Charlie, you’re a really nice guy. And I really enjoyed today, but now’s not the right time, and I’m not sure that you’re the right guy”. Ellouise felt a pang of guilt as she saw the look on his face.
“Unlucky bro”, called out the twins in unison.
Ellouise and Charlie both turned to the doorway by the stairs that led to the kitchen. The twins stood there grinning, Percy looked shocked- his chin dropped to his chest, Carlisle looked slightly taken aback whilst also looking disapprovingly at the twins. Xavier just stood there leaning against the door frame, his arms crossed and his eyes on Ellouise.
“I’m sorry...” Ellouise whispered to Charlie before she turned on her heel and left the room.

Ellouise trudged up the stairs, weighed down with the guilt she felt for hurting Charlie in front of the other guys. She began thinking back to all the moments she shared with Charlie and hoped to herself that she hadn’t led him on or given him the wrong impressions. Looking back she realised that the signs were all there... that he liked her but not that she’d led him on, this eased her nerves somewhat. Perhaps if she had taken more notice of his actions this could have been prevented. Ellouise reached her bedroom, turning the brass handle she let herself in, and shut the door immediately behind her as she heard footsteps echoing up the stairs. Images of Charlie flashed in her mind, those moments, the sincerity... he wasn’t a bad kisser, and he was a really nice guy. But never the less she knew he wasn’t the one for her. After dressing Ellouise hopped into bed and drew the covers around her. Tomorrow was going to be a very awkward day, one she wasn’t looking forward to. Just as Ellouise was about to fall asleep there was a light knocking on her door. She didn’t reply, it would be easier if whoever it was thought she was asleep. But they knocked again, only louder this time.
“Ellie, I know you’re awake, let me in”, came Xavier’s voice, soft and understanding.
Ellouise flung her feet over the edge of the bed and went to open the door. She opened it just a fraction and could see Xavier standing there, he held something behind his back.
“Can I come in?” he asked peering at her through the crack.
“Now? Why?” she asked irritably, not really in the mood for company.
Xavier smiled and held up a packet of Bertie Botts Every-Flavour Beans. Ellouise opened the door and he entered, pushing the door closed behind him. Ellouise sat on the bed cross legged, patting the mattress beside her.
“Ladies first”, said Xavier as he offered her a bean. Elloise peered into the box, there were so many colours to choose from, and it was a decision not to be taken lightly. After pondering over the selection for a moment she chose a white bean that was flecked with yellow. S he popped it into her mouth carefully and chewed.
“Mmm not bad, buttered toast”, she said as she waited for Xavier to select a bean.
He took out an odd looking green one and popped it in his mouth.
“Gherkin”, he laughed.
This continued for some time, just like when they were children. They sat in silence, both of them resting against the bed-head with the box of Bertie Botts in between them.
“You alright?” asked Xavier after a while.
“I’m alright”, replied Ellouise almost immediately, Xavier didn’t believe her.
Xavier took another been, a mottled looking grey one.
“Oh your favourite!” he exclaimed. Ellouise looked at him sceptically, “I doubt that tastes anything like cherry”, she said raising an eyebrow.
“Pepper”, said Xavier playfully offering her another bean.
Ellouise sighed, “Never lost your sense of humour did you.” Xavier just shook his head.
“Ellie, what’s the matter?” he asked more forcefully this time. His grey eyes penetrating hers in an instance, but she couldn’t look away.
“Everything”, she replied.
Xavier considered this for a minute before responding, “I’m sure you don’t mean it quite that literally.” Ellouise couldn’t help but smile and poked him in the ribs with a finger.
“No... it’s just... I want my parents back”, she said as she dropped her gaze, “And now with Charlie... I didn’t mean to hurt him... it’s just...”
“Not the right time”, finished Xavier.
Ellouise looked up and stared into his deep grey eyes again. Surely he knew that wasn’t the only reason... that it wasn’t really the reason at all. If only he knew she thought, if only she had the courage to tell him, to hold him, to kiss him... to just be with him. They were still staring into each others eyes, neither of them spoke, neither of them moved and then Xavier broke the silence.
“He’ll be fine, don’t worry about him”, he said, “And as for your parents, they’re strong, they’re fighters and I’m sure they’ll be ok.” He could tell she didn’t believe him.
“What did you want to do about it?” he asked, his brows furrowed.
“I don’t know... all I know is I can’t sit here waiting for something to happen.”
Xavier nodded his understanding. “Well whatever you decide to do, I’m doing it with you.”
“No you’re not”, replied Ellouise, her eyes wide open with something that resembled fear.
“Well, actually... yes I am. And there’s nothing you can do to stop me Ellie. I’m not going to let you do anything dangerous and reckless on your own... ever.” His words came out strong and definite, nothing was going to change his mind.
“I don’t want you to get hurt because of me”, whispered Ellouise, she dropped her gaze.
“Ellie, if anything would happen to you again, and I wasn’t there... it would... it would kill me”. He said. Ellouise met his eyes, his face was soft and almost sad in that moment. She wanted so badly to just force herself into his arms and hold him, she wanted it, but didn’t move.
“You’re being melodramatic”, she said hastily, her voice becoming hoarse as she tried to ignore her feelings for him, every fibre in her body urging her to get closer to him, to feel his skin on hers, to feel his lips on hers.
“Losing my mum was one the hardest things I’ve had to deal with since this war broke out”, whispered Xavier, “I don’t want to go through that again”, he continued.
“I already had to deal with the prospect of losing you once, and I promised myself that I would never let anything like that happen to you again. Now I understand that you need to do something. You’ve always been pushy. But now it’s my turn to be pushy, and whatever your plan is I’m going to do it with you.”

Hey everyone, sorry I havnt been able to post recently, and this is only a short post but I assure you there will be more tomorrow!
Enjoy.


Ellouise just sat there in silence. She knew he cared about her, they had always been close, even as children. Xavier had always been like an older brother to her, there were times when he had picked on her, scared her, chased her with bugs, called her names, pushed her over. But there were also times when he protected her, helped her up when she was knocked down, squished spiders when they came too near, and defended her when others teased her- because only he was allowed to do that. Now there they were, sitting in her bedroom, side by side resting their backs against the bed-head.
“I want to go home”, she said suddenly. Home had once been Godric’s Hollow, a small community where witches and wizards lived in secret amongst muggle folk. It had been years since she had been there. It was the worst hit area when the war broke out the night Lord Voldemort returned. It was absolute chaos, even the muggles in the community perished under the assault. Death eaters had stormed through the community, raiding every existing structure. Even through all the chaos, Ellouise and her parents had managed to escape, they took nothing but their wands and ran, for at the time there wasn’t much more that could have been done. It would have been suicidal to stand and fight.
“Then home it is”, said Xavier. “You should get some sleep, you look tired. We’ll go after breakfast... if you’re ready of course”, he added, giving her a kiss on the forehead before he got up. He placed the almost empty packet of Bertie Botts on the bedside table and left the room, pausing to say goodnight before he closed the door. Ellouise lay back down, her eye lids already struggling to stay open with the need to sleep, the clock on the bedside table read 3:07am. Where had all the time gone?
Ellouise didn’t think about it for too long because she was already drifting off to sleep. She had a plan, it wasn’t much of a plan, but it was a start and a start was all that mattered. Whether or not they would find anything was another matter, and it was one she would explore tomorrow.

Thanks everyone for reading, let me know what you think!


The smell of eggs, bacon and waffles wafted up the stairs through to the drawing room. Ellouise quickened her pace, eager to indulge herself before heading out for the day. The kitchen was as packed as she had seen it all week. Everyone was awake and sitting at the long table. There were the Potter’s, the Weasley’s, the Smith’s, Sirius, Xavier, Remus and Naomi plus another two wizards she didn’t recognise. Ellouise’s heart sank a little when she saw Charlie, he didn’t even try to avoid eye contact. Xavier was sitting opposite him at the table shoving a big forkful of pancakes into his mouth. After wishing everyone a good morning Ellouise took her seat next to Xavier who had already taken the liberty of setting a pile of pancakes on her plate with a mound of fresh berries, honey and cream. Ellouise thanked him politely and dug into her feed, relishing the taste of the tangy berries and the richness of the cream. The fluffy pancakes made her body smile from the inside out, as it filled her with warmth and comfort.
“How’d you sleep?” asked Xavier.
Ellouise looked up, he was shoving another forkful of food into his mouth, Charlie had stopped what he was doing and appeared to be waiting for her response.
“Average”, she replied, though it wasn’t true. She had had the best sleep, it was one of the few nights where she hadn’t been interrupted with her usual nightmare. But she didn’t want to say so in front of Charlie in case it somehow hurt his feelings. The table had gone unusually quiet, the only noise that could be heard was the clinking of cutlery and the pouring of drinks. Xavier polished off the last of his pancakes and washed it down with some juice.
“I’m gonna go get a couple of things. I’ll meet you in the drawing room soon?” he asked as he stood to leave the table.
“Sure,” replied Ellouise.
“What do you have planned for today Elle?” asked one of the twins casually.
“I’m going out”, she replied quickly, hoping nobody would take too much notice.
“Out, are you mad? You must have a death wish”, said the other Weasley twin.
“There are some things I need to do.” Said Ellouise though she knew that wasn’t entirely true. First of all she didn’t know what things she was going to do except look around the area where she used to live, however fruitful as that may be. Secondly she didn’t need to, she just wanted to.
“I can come with you if you like,” said Charlie.
Ellouise looked into his eyes, she could she a hint of sadness mingled with hope.
“Sorry, I’m already going with Xavier”, she replied somewhat awkwardly.
“Oh right”, said Charlie, his body tensing slightly, “Of course”.
Ellouise frowned... of course... what was that supposed to mean?!

Just then Xavier entered the kitchen once more, hurrying passed them carrying a small draw-string bag which judging by the pattern looked as if it was made out of Persian silk. He disappeared into the pantry and returned a short time later, though it looked as if he hadn’t put anything into the bag itself.
“Got us some food, thought we could have a picnic if we get hungry”, he said strategically. They weren’t about to spread out a blanket at Godric’s Hollow and have a feast. It was more likely to be precautionary rations, in case something went wrong during their trip. Ellouise looked into Xavier’s eyes, she had butterflies, and for once it wasn’t due to his presence, she was actually nervous about going home.
“I’m going to go get ready”, she said standing up and making her way passed Xavier to the kitchen entrance.
“Where are you guys going?” asked Charlie before she could escape.
“Nowhere in particular”, said Ellouise.
“I don’t believe you”, he replied, standing up and looking at her and Xavier.
“Well it’s none of your business”, retorted Ellouise who was becoming more annoyed at Charlie by the second. Why was he being so nosy? And so persistent?
“We’re just getting some fresh air. Ellie’s taking me to Switzerland”, came Xavier’s voice, calm and casual. Ellouise could feel her cheeks blush and she took that as her cue to leave, before anyone could notice. He remembered, she thought to herself. Ellouise had mentioned to Xavier only briefly that she and her family had been to Switzerland in hope of escaping the war, she remembered telling him this the day they were reunited at the rendezvous. He had cared enough to listen, and he had cared even more to remember, electricity coursed through Ellouise’s veins like a bolt of lightning.

naawww... no comments oh wells.
Next post!
Enjoy.


She took the stairs two steps at a time, racing up to her bedroom. Once there she grabbed her black pea-coat off the coat rack in the corner, and shoved her wand and a pair of black dragon hide gloves into her pockets. She stopped briefly by her dresser and picked up a brass ornate photo frame. In it was a photo of her with her parents at the front of their Godric’s Hollow home. It had been taken when she was seven, just a year before Voldemort returned to power. They were happier times, much easier times than now. Andrea and Spencer laughed merrily and kissed their daughter in the photograph, it was a lovely memory, a minute moment in time when all was right in the world, at least it was in her world. Ellouise set the photograph down and left the room, skipping down the stairs to the drawing room. Xavier still wasn’t there, Harry and Ron sat in the corner playing wizard chess, Ron’s complexion was still mildly orange but at least the swelling had gone down, so Ellouise went back down to the kitchen.

“The answer is no Xavier”, Remus was saying, “It’s just too dangerous”. Ellouise approached them slowly, her eyes drifting from one to the other and back again.
“What’s going on?” she asked them. Remus just looked at her, worry etched in his frown lines.
“Elle, you’re not going out today, you need to stay here, you’ve been through so much already. It’s not safe out there.” He said sternly.
“Charlie told him that we’re up to no good “, added Xavier, his voice dripping with anger. Charlie sat not far from where they stood, his hands in his lap and his eyes on Ellouise.
“Who do you think you are?” she asked, turning on Charlie, her eyes flaring. “I don’t want you to get hurt”, he replied without breaking eye contact even though at that point in time Ellouise looked about as friendly as a nesting Peruvian Vipertooth that coincidently hadn’t been fed for months. “Hurt... you think I’m going to get hurt?” she spat as she advanced on him. Everyone in the kitchen had gone silent once more and were starring at them, Molly and Arthur Weasley looked particularly shocked at her outrage.
“I would never let anything or anyone hurt Ellouise”, said Xavier as he walked to her side, Ellouise turned to look at him, it was the first time she had heard him call her by anything other than Ellie.
“Oh sure, you’re just going along with this because you want her away from me. Face it Xavier, you know she’ll never be interested in you, you’re like a brother to her and that’s all you’ll ever be. You’re just jealous because last night I got closer to her than you ever have!” yelled Charlie as he stood up to meet Xavier on the other side of the kitchen table. The room was tense now, even Remus was taken-aback slightly, unsure of what was about to happen. Ellouise looked at Charlie, even she was having difficulty making sense of what he had said. Jealous? Why would Xavier be jealous? He didn’t like her in that way?... did he? Ellouise’s heart skipped a beat, her mind was racing so fast she had hardly taken a second to breathe. She turned slowly to look at Xavier, was Charlie telling the truth? Did he have feelings for her? Xavier stood there his eyes transfixed on Charlie’s, the corners of his lips turned down and the fire in his eyes burned out, he looked...defeated.
“I don’t want to take Ellie away from anything... I know what it’s like to lose a parent, I can’t even imagine what it feels like to lose both at the same time. It’s been a month now, the Order’s not doing anything about it. I was merely suggesting we should get out a bit more so she’s not cooped up in here doing nothing!” he said more strongly now.

Next Post!!!

It took Ellouise another second for everything to sink in and for her to find her voice... and then she let loose on Charlie, advancing on him, her wand drawn.
“How dare you!” she yelled.
“Don’t you dare take this out on Xavier! He’s got nothing to do with it. You’re just bitter and you hate that I rejected you last night, and you know what! I actually felt sorry for you. I didn’t want to hurt you at all, I felt so guilty for doing it... but now I can see you’re just as arrogant and pig-headed as any average man! You feel you have to get in the way of our friendship because of what?! Jealousy? Well take it out on me Charlie, I’m the one that hurt you.”
She drew in a deep breath before continuing.
“So it’s ok for you to distract me from all this?! But it’s not ok for Xavier to distract me. You’re a jerk, but don’t pretend that you’re concerned for my safety! Hell you made me ride a dragon yesterday! You are the last person in the world that should be protecting me. You’re only doing this for yourself. You can’t stand the fact that I hurt your feelings! Well guess what Charlie! I lied to you! You want to know the real reason why I don’t like you in that way? Why I wouldn’t kiss you back?! First of all now is as good a time as any, secondly although I thought you were a nice guy, I don’t have feelings for you... I have feelings for someone else, and I’ll be damned if I let you get in the way of that!” she yelled.
Now it was Charlie’s turn to look defeated, his eyes glazed over and his face contorted as if he was in pain. Ellouise knew she had hurt him, she could see it, hear it, and feel it.

“Dragons! You not only put her in the presence of them, but you made her ride one?!” it was Xavier’s turn to yell now. Everyone just stared at them, their eyes glued to them like moths to a flame, neither of them knowing what to say or how to diffuse the situation, it had been a number of years since they’d had to worry about teenage hormones. Molly stood slowly and approached her son. Moving in front of Xavier and Ellouise so that she was shielding Charlie from their wands.
“Dragons Charlie! Honestly what were you thinking? Are you mad?!” she said, her voice exasperated. “Knew that good for nothing old coot was a bad influence on you, didn’t think you’d still be visiting... and taking Elle with you! You must have been out of your mind. Dragons are wild, dangerous beasts Charlie! Not date material!” her voice was rising now, concern for her son’s emotional wellbeing trumped by her need to lecture him about the dangers of dragons. This continued for some time. Ellouise, already frustrated and annoyed left the kitchen, she stormed through the drawing room, attracting curious looks from Harry and Ron.
“What’s wrong Elle?” asked Harry as he noticed her livid expression.
“Nothing Harry... I just really need to get some air. Listen, I’m going to head out for a bit. If anyone asks I’ll be back for dinner.”
Harry nodded and he turned back to his chess game with Ron who was severely dominating him.

Haha sorry Claire... Im doing it all wrong... you want to take over? just kidding. You'll have to deal with it. Anyway I'm glad you realised that I couldn't possibly kill off Ellie, although its given me an idea
Next post!
p.s. wont be posting again for a few days due to Australia Day celebrations. But I will post again asap... probably thursday or friday.


Ellouise left the drawing room as quickly as her legs would carry her without running. Once in the hallway she considered her options. She could just do what she said and get some fresh air, she could go to Snowdonia, to her favourite places and relax for a while, roam the mountains in wolf form. Or, she could go to Godric’s Hollow as she and Xavier had planned. It didn’t take long for her to make up her mind and in a split second she had apparated out of the musty hallway of Grimmauld Place.

Ellouise felt her feet land on a rough gravel path, her boots making a light crunching sound as she did so. Immediately she scanned her surrounding and ducked for cover in the nearby shrubs. There didn’t appear to be anyone in the vicinity. Ellouise knew where she was, despite the fact it had been seven years since she’d been there. After casting the disillusionment charm on herself she stepped out into the chilly breeze and began to trudge down the side of the gravel path on the grass so as to not make any noise. After passing a couple of meadows the path she was following connected up to the main road which headed into the heart of Godric’s Hollow. It was barely recognisable. Ellouise thought back to when she was young and she used to take the same road and the same path down to the forest outside of town to collect fresh berries. During those times modest cottages lined the road side, their quaint gardens littered with flowers, various colours scattered everywhere like a rainbow, birds chirping in the distance. Now... well now it didn’t exist. Immediately Ellouise could see the devastating difference the war had made on the region. In the places where cottages used to stand, now there were dilapidated structures of grey stone, remnants of doors lay amongst the rubble, creeping vines and thistles dominating what used to be gardens. Tears welled in Ellouise’s eyes, not from the stinging wind, but from the sheer contrast of her memories and reality.

Ellouise ventured further into town, the destruction was consistent, there wasn’t a single structure that was left unharmed. Even in the small village square, the church, the old post office, pub and shops were completely disfigured and completely unrecognisable. Ellouise stopped to catch her breath, she had been keeping a steady pace, making her way through the town, visiting all the places she remembered. It was a frightening sight, Ellouise felt goose bumps rise on her skin, sending a shiver up her spine and down to her fingertips. Everything was a dreary shade of grey, black or brown, only the creeping ivy, thistles and weeds shone a vibrant green. The grey clouds overhead looked just as unfriendly, billowing over her menacingly. She hoped it wouldn’t rain. After taking a deep breath Ellouise continued through town, crossing the road and strolling passed the high grey walls of the cemetery, she considered going to visit her grandparents but just the thought of being in a cemetery under such conditions made her feel uneasy. Godric’s Hollow was a ghost town, nothing was left, nothing was spared. Ellouise couldn’t help but wonder how many witches, wizards and muggles had been killed here, murdered in cold blood, all for what... a one year old boy. Poor Harry, she thought, he was so young and innocent, and yet an army of death eaters had been sent to terminate him and his family when Voldemort couldn’t. Why? Ellouise didn’t know.

On the other side of the town square Ellouise made a right hand turn and followed a narrow street. Not far down the street she passed the site where the old muggle Primary School used to be. It had also been destroyed. Nothing more than a large pile of rubble existed in its place, it looked more like a junk yard than anything else, well except for the rusted, abandoned playground. It looked oddly out of place as it was surrounded by rubble and wreckage. Ellouise remembered a muggle girl that lived across the road from her. “Bethany”, Ellouise whispered under her breath as the memories of her childhood came flooding back. Summer days sitting in a kiddie pool with Bethany, sipping on lemonade and eating freshly cut fruit salad. Bethany had also taught her how to play hopscotch, they would draw squares and other shapes on her driveway with coloured chalk and make up their own hopscotch games, they were far more exciting than the original version. Ellouise wondered what had happened to her, she figured it wouldn’t have been good and just hoped it had been quick and painless.

Ellouise brushed a tear from her cheek and crossed the road to the left hand side, then she took another turn down an alleyway which opened up into another narrow street, a sign that hung crooked from its post at the corner of the street to her left read Farrington Close. Ellouise stood still as she surveyed the street. It was the same as all the others, only remnants of the past were left. Ellouise turned right and strode down the middle of the street to the cul-de-sac. In one of the corners stood her home... or at least what was left of it, next to it was her neighbours. Both were large properties, considerably bigger than the others. Because it was located on the outskirts of town and the land behind their property was uninhabitable they were fortunate enough to have a larger garden, this was one of the reasons why her mother agreed to buy the property. Ellouise strode passed the low stone wall, the wooden gate hung open on its hinges. Slowly she inched her way across where the front yard used to be, stepping over stone bricks as she went. The weeds grew high here, they were matted in between thick growths of thistles and shrubs, Ellouise ploughed through it, leaving a snake-like trail in her wake. She would need to be careful now.

Once at the entrance to her old home, she stopped. There was no way she could enter the house now. Was it even considered a house anymore? She asked herself. The two-story dilapidated structure had been crushed, almost as if it had caved in on itself. Ellouise knelt low to the ground and peered through an opening where the door used to be. It seemed as though there was enough room for a child to squeeze through. Ellouise stood up and scanned her surroundings, she was beginning to doubt whether there was any other living thing in the area aside from herself. Within a second she morphed into her wolf form. Crouching low to the ground she moved forward, her head bent low, just brushing lightly against the jagged rock and rubble as she entered her former home. She continued to crawl forwards for some time before she reached the area that used to be the living room. There was more space in here, the ceiling hadn’t quite caved in, though a thick layer of dust covered the floor. Ellouise morphed back into human form, she starred around the room, she didn’t quite recognise it. The furniture in the room lay in crumpled heaps, nothing was left untouched. Everything was broken. Ellouise walked across the small room, being careful not to trip on anything, against the back wall- or what was left of it- was a small cabinet, the doors lay broken on the floor, the contents had been riffled through and lay in a big mess, papers and photographs spilled out onto the floor, smiling faces peered up at her, covered in a film of dust, crumpled and torn in areas. Ellouise picked up a small wooden box, it seemed to be the only thing that wasn’t damaged. Ellouise swept her hand across the top, beneath the dust was a shiny black and brown engraving. A swirly pattern surrounded the Browne family coat of arms on the front of the box. Ellouise shook it gently, there was no sound. She tried to open it, but it was locked. “Alohamora”, she whispered pointing her wand at the small box. Nothing happened, it was still locked tight. Ellouise shrunk to the floor and sat in the dust, ash and dirt, what was she doing here? Was it just a waste of time? Unsure about what she was doing she decided to look through the photos that lay on the floor at her feet. So many memories, most of which had been forgotten.

“It wasn’t dangerous mum”, cried Charlie, “I know what I’m doing. I’ve watched those dragons grow up, they’re harmless... if you treat them right”, he added. Molly was not convinced.
“Look I don’t care if your familiar with those dragons, the point is Ellie’s not... and that put her life in danger.” Said Xavier, his voice raised. Remus and Sirius stood at his sides, both of them in agreement. “It was a very reckless thing that you did”, said Remus, his arms crossed in front of him. It was not going to be a good day at the Order.
The room went quiet once more, “I should go check on Elle”, said Remus a moment later, “See how she’s doing.” Xavier made to follow him out of the kitchen but Sirius held him back by the scruff of the neck and pushed him into a seat at the table.
“You can see her later”, he whispered.
Xavier glanced over at Charlie, Molly had started yelling at him again. At least he’s getting what he deserves, thought Xavier.

Remus came hurrying down the stairs to the kitchen again, muttering something under his breath. Xavier looked up curiously.
“Can I see her now?” he asked.
Remus just stared at him, his eyebrows furrowed, his lips pursed.
“She’s gone.” He said simply, observing Xavier’s reaction.
“She’s what?!” he yelled, jumping from his seat.
Remus didn’t say anything for a moment, he looked at Xavier then turned his attention to Charlie and back to Xavier.
“I’m holding you two responsible”, he said pointing his finger at them both.
“Blame Charlie, if he hadn’t had said anything, Ellie and I would have gone and come back by now... Remus, she hates being locked up in here, she needs fresh air.” Said Xavier, Charlie flinched at the mention of his name.
“You were going to go to Switzerland... right?” asked Remus in response. Xavier nodded, though it wasn’t true, it was just the cover story for their real plan. Their plan to visit Godric’s Hollow.
“Right, I’ll be back soon... maybe I should send a patronous,” said Remus as he gathered his coat from his seat.
“A patronous is probably too dangerous,” said Xavier in a concerned voice.
“No... where we were staying in Switzerland was pretty secluded, I wouldn’t risk it otherwise,” he replied quickly as he removed his wand from his pocket.
“DON’T!” yelled Xavier moving towards Remus, his own wand drawn.
Remus eyed him suspiciously, “She’s not in Switzerland is she?... you know where she is”, spat Remus, anger rising in his throat now.
“I’m just saying, maybe she decided to go somewhere else...” replied Xavier, though not with any confidence. Remus’s grey-blue eyes penetrated his, they were usually warm and kind but in that moment Xavier felt as though he was looking at the eyes of a stone-cold killer.
“Where were you two going to go?” asked Remus more forcefully now advancing on him slowly.
Xavier scanned the room, all eyes were on him, Sirius blocked the stairs from the kitchen. He was trapped.

“I can’t tell you”, replied Xavier, lowering his wand. “Look I know where she is... it’s too dangerous to send a patronous. So... I’ll go get her myself.” He added with some conviction.
“Too dangerous to send a patronous!” exclaimed Charlie who managed to find his voice, “You lot are telling me off because I took her to visit a domesticated dragon,” Charlie particularly emphasised domesticated, “...when he’s got her mixed up in something so dangerous she can’t even be contacted!” he yelled pointing his finger at Xavier.
Xavier flicked his wand, and one of the silver goblets from the table went flying in Charlie’s direction narrowly missing his head.
“Oh shut up,” he spat, “She’s not in any real danger, it’s just best not to risk sending a patronous, they’re not exactly subtle” he added. Remus looked resigned, he had no idea where Ellouise was, nor what danger she might be in, how was he supposed to trust Xavier?
“She said she’d be home for dinner,” came Harry’s voice. His small face peered around Sirius’s figure into the kitchen, Ron stood in his shadows nodding.
“Harry... did Elle tell you where she was going?” asked Lily as she turned to face her son.
Harry shook his head, “No, she just said she wanted to get some fresh air and that she’d be back later”, he said. “What’s going on?” he asked as he and Ron went to take a seat at the kitchen table. Their eyes jumped from Charlie, who was red in the face, to Xavier who held his wand limply at his side, to Remus who had gone incredibly pale. Lily extended her arm and pat him on the shoulder, “She’s smart and strong, she’ll be ok”, she said encouragingly, Remus didn’t respond.

Xavier rounded the kitchen table and approached Remus, placing his wand back in his pocket.
“Remus, this is something Ellie really wanted to do... I wasn’t going to let her do it on her own. Now I would appreciate it if you let me handle this. I won’t let anything happen to her.” Xavier held Remus’s eye contact, even though the air stung his eyes and tears formed in the corners.
“Give me one good reason why I should trust you?”
It took Xavier a while to respond, he hadn’t thought about saying it out loud before, and certainly not in front of so many people... or without Ellouise present.
Xavier took a deep breath, mustering all the courage he possessed.
“Because I love her.”
Remus nodded, he had suspected as much for some time, and he knew Xavier wouldn’t let any harm come to her. He placed his hand on Xavier shoulder and gave him a manly, awkward embrace.
“Keep us posted will you”, he said as he watched Xavier move to leave the kitchen.
Sirius pat him on the back, a grin spread across his face, “Knock her out with that Black charm”, he said winking at his son, James, Lily, Remus and Naomi couldn’t help but laugh.
"What are you talking about?" asked Xavier as he made to move past him.
"Well... you have to tell her now... don't ya", he said simply.
Xavier’s lip curled up in a grin as he ascended the stairs and strode into the hallway. Xavier thought long and hard about his memories with Ellie in her back garden when they were younger, and he apparated, willing himself to be there again, back at Godric’s Hollow.

Ellouise wiped a few tears from her eyes, she placed the small pile of photographs into her pocket and stared around the room. It was strange being back there in the state that it was. She felt alone... more than just being alone. Deep into her core she felt as though there was no one else with her. Slowly she stood, balancing herself with her outstretched arm. As Ellouise contemplated exploring the rest of the house, for want of a better word, there came a sudden noise. Ellouise held her breath and cast the disillusionment charm on herself once more as it had worn off. There was a light thudding noise coming from outside, almost like footsteps. Ellouise edged a little closer to the dilapidated wall and pressed her ear against it gently. The footsteps continued as they edged around the structure.
“Ellie?” came a soft whisper. “Ellie... are you there?” it came again.
Ellouise recognised the voice immediately as she tapped herself with her wand, making herself visible again. “Xav... in here” she said in a hushed whisper, even though she knew that there was nobody else within earshot. Xavier’s eye appeared through a small crack in a part of the wall.
“How’d you get in there?” he asked, still whispering.
“Wolf-form” she replied quickly, “Hang on”, she added as she made to move some of the stone blocks out of the way. But before she had done anything a medium sized dog appeared at her side. It was mottled black and grey in appearance, its tail was swishing back and forth eagerly as she stared down at it.
“How did I not know you could do that?” she asked as she watched him morph back into human form.
“You don’t know me as well as you think you do Miss Browne” he said smiling as he glanced around the inside of the structure.
“This is...well... it’s ruined”, he said, shock registering on his face.
Ellouise paced around the room as he took it all in.
“The rest of town is the same. Xavier there’s nothing left”, she said shoving her hands deep into her pocket.
“Nothing at all?”
“Nothing... everything has been destroyed, it all looks the same, overgrown weeds and rubble.”
Xavier moved closer to Ellouise and wrapped his arms around her pulling her in closer.
“What’s that in your pocket?” he asked pulling away from her suddenly. Ellouise looked at him confused until she felt her coat and remembered the small box she had found. Pulling it out from her pocket she tapped it with her wand and it reverted to its normal size.
“I found this”, she said as she handed it to Xavier, “It was in that cabinet over there.”
“I can’t open it”, she added as she watched Xavier struggle with the lid.
“Have you tried magic?” he asked as he pulled out his wand.
“Yes, but whatever’s keeping it closed is more sophisticated than any spell that I know”, she said as she began to patrol the room once more. She felt as though she was missing something.
“Whoops that reminds me”, said Xavier as he summoned his patronous. Ellouise looked at him, an eyebrow raised curiously.
“Remus?” she asked, Xavier nodded in response.
“He’s just worried about you.... And so was I for a while. I didn’t think I’d be able to get away,” Xavier paused, “Please don’t ever do anything like this without me... ever... again.”

Hope you all like it


Ellouise smiled, she could feel a blush warming her cheeks, the hairs on the back of her neck stood on end, and she could feel her throat go dry. Xavier took a step towards her, they were almost standing side by side, like sardines in a tin. Ellouise could feel his body warmth emanating out in waves, he smelt nice, sort of musky with a hint of old spice. The atmosphere was electrifying, neither of them said anything, and neither of them moved. A minute passed before Xavier broke the silence, though it felt more like hours.
“Back in the kitchen...” he started before clearing his throat, “when you told Charlie that...that you had feelings for somebody else...” Xavier took a deep breath, “Did... did you mean me?” he managed to stammer.
Ellouise felt her face go red, her heart pounded against her ribcage in a furious bid for freedom, she was starring down at her hands. Why did he have to ask her? Why now? Ellouise didn’t know how to respond, but she figured it was best to tell the truth. Slowly she raised her head until her eyes met his. He was unusually pale looking, but his deep grey eyes penetrated her, rooting her to the spot. She tried to swallow, but the big lump in her throat didn’t go away.
“Yes... I did”, she said simply, trying her hardest not to look away. Xavier’s expression didn’t change, but the colour was beginning to reappear in his face.

Xavier looked into her bright green eyes for a short while before turning into her, his chest an inch away from hers. Ellouise could feel his breath on her neck, it gave her goose bumps and shivers ran up her spine. He put one hand on her waist and pulled her in a little closer. With the other hand he cupped her cheek and leant in, his lips grazed hers gently, then pulled away. His lips were soft and warm, and moist without being wet, it sent another shiver up her spine. Ellouise didn’t want it to end and found herself leaning into him again, standing up on her tip-toes. Xavier leant back in and kissed her softly, tenderly, holding her as close to his body as he could without crushing her. Soon both his arms were wrapped around her slight figure, one hand resting gently against the back of her neck. After a few minutes Xavier pulled away, a content smile spread across his face.
“You have no idea how long I’ve waited to do that”, he said, his voice a bit hoarse.
“Why did you wait?” Ellouise questioned playfully.
“I didn’t think you liked me in that way”, he said as he moved some rubble with his foot uncomfortably. Ellouise couldn’t help but smile.
“You know I thought the same thing. You were always like a brother to me, so I just thought you saw me as a sister figure.”
“I suppose I sort of did...” he said. “But then I grew up and realised how hot you are”, he added grinning widely. Ellouise nudged him in the ribs with her elbow, then turned and gazed around the room. There wasn’t much else for them to do here, they couldn’t enter any of the other rooms, mainly because they no longer existed.
“Shall we head off?” she asked turning back to Xavier, “There’s nothing to see here.”
He nodded and morphed into his animagus, as did Ellouise. Then she followed him out of the dilapidated structure back into the garden of overgrown weeds.
