Character(s): Stephen Cornfoot, feat. Kevin Entwhistle, Mandy Brocklehurst, and Morag MacDougal
Prompt: #1 – New Year’s Eve
Word Count: 481
Notes: Hn. This is much shorter than the first one. No matter. New Year’s Eve part at the Ravenclaw Commons. Fluff. Be warned.
“You’re very obvious. Did you know that?” Kevin Entwhistle commented as he watched Stephen shoot.
Click. Click. “I am?” he asked, glancing at his friend in question before continuing what he was doing.
“Did you know that you’ve focused on that area far too long?”
A pause. Click. “So?” he muttered, before waving his right hand to the people he had been focusing on.
Kevin sighed. “You might also want to shoot the others. After all, this is a party. Our last party here for the year. Anthony will want to hex you if he wasn’t even in one of the pictures.”
Stephen put his camera down. “I’d hex him back if he did,” he retorted easily. “Your point?”
Kevin grinned. “She’s coming here.”
“Hey, guys. Why aren’t you mingling like Morag and I do?” Mandy asked when she reached them. Her friend and roommate, Morag, nodded in agreement.
“Stephen’s been busy. And I’m keeping him company,” Kevin replied, inclining his head to the official photographer of Ravenclaw.
Morag rolled her eyes. “Busy taking pictures of us?” she asked teasingly.
Mandy pinched the other girl’s arm at that comment but she was grinning. Kevin chuckled.
“Why yes, Morag. You noticed?” Stephen teased back, before lifting up his camera again.
“Oh, no, you don’t,” Mandy said as she took the camera and lifted the strap off of him and handed the equipment to Morag.
Stephen’s eyes widened as he saw his precious possession being manhandled by rabid witches. “Be careful with that!”
Morag once again, rolled her eyes, and to the wizard’s relief, she slipped on the safety straps.
“You want a picture of the two of us, don’t you Mandy?” he asked, wiggling his eyebrows as he placed an arm over said girl’s shoulders.
Shrugging off his arm, Mandy stuck out her tongue at him. “Why would I want to be caught in a picture with you? And don’t answer that. Just wait,” she told him. And he knew what she was referring to.
A minute later somebody that sounded suspiciously like Anthony shouted, “Ravenclaws! It’s time for the countdown! Ten… nine…”
Mandy smiled knowingly at Stephen before joining in the count. “Six… five…”
And it was down to one.
“Happy New Year!” everyone shouted and party poppers and charms went off to light up the common room. People were greeting everyone with a kiss, friendly or not.
“Happy New Year,” Stephen muttered softly to Mandy as he bent down and kissed her lightly on the lips.
A flash went out and the couple froze.
Morag was smirking at the two. “Happy New Year!” she told them with a huge smile on her face before turning to greet Kevin and giving him a peck on the cheek. Kevin was laughing.
Stephen shook his head and grinned stupidly at Mandy while the latter grinned back although she was red on the face.
