Chapter 3

Damn it Darcy! ~ Gwendolyn Longbottom

Some one knocked on my door. "Gwen? Can I come in?"

"Sure," I called pulling on my shirt. I glanced up as my twin brother stuck his head in.

"How do I look?" He asked smoothing out his shirt.

"Fine...well...except for one spot right here." I muttered as I brushed down his hair. "There...much better. Now, who are you looking to impress?" I grinned wiggling my eyebrows.

"No one and why do you always have to ask me that?" He groaned as he left shaking his head.

I shrugged my shoulders and went back to getting ready. Gran was taking us to Diagon Alley so that we could get our school things and because Neville needed new robes. I grabbed a hat from my dresser drawer and pulled it on my head.

The only reason I wanted to go to Diagon was to see my friends. Don't get me wrong, I loved my brother and he'd always be my best friend...but I'd been stuck with only him and Gran for company all summer and I needed a bit of a break.

"Gwendolyn?! Are you ready to go?" My Grandmother's voice drifted up to me.

"Yes! Coming Gran!" I hollered grabbing my bag and rushing down the stairs.

"We were about to leave without you." Gran huffed adjusting her hat. I shared a look with Neville and rolled my eyes.

"Sorry, I didn't mean to take so long." I grabbed a handful of floo powder and stood behind Neville.

"Diagon Alley!!" He shouted as he threw the powder into the fire. As a burst of smoke flared up and as the flames turned green he stepped in.

"Gwendolyn...please don't get into any trouble. I'm trusting you..I'll take Neville to Madame Malkin's and then I'll meet you at Flourish and Blotts...don't be late." Then she stepped up to the fire and threw in her powder shouting, "Diagon Alley!" loud and clear.

I waited for her to disappear into the smoke and then I threw my own handful in, and tumbled out covered in soot inside the Leaky Cauldron a few seconds later. I stood up and dusted myself off. I hated floo powder.

I left the Leaky Cauldron and headed into the crowded, noisy place that was Diagon Alley. "Gwen!! Over here!" Hermione called waving me over to where she stood.

I made my way over to her weaving in and out of people. "Man, am I glad to see you." I sighed, sitting next to her on a bench.

"It's good to see you too, Gwen. Where's Neville?"

"Oh, he's with Gran..he needs new robes. Growing like a weed all of the sudden, he is." I muttered, pulling my hat lower on my head.

"Gwen, Hermione!" Someone called, we looked up and saw red-headed Ron striding towards us. Mrs. Weasley and Ginny behind him.

"Hey, Ronald." I grinned hitting him lightly on the arm when he got over to us.

"Ugh, do you have to call me that?" He asked, rolling his eyes and giving me a slight shove.

"Um..let me think. YES!" I grinned as I shoved him again.

Hermione shook her head at us, "Good grief you two get a grip," she muttered.

I stuck my tongue out at her and turned to Mrs. Weasley. "Good morning, Mrs. Weasley!" I grinned.

"Good morning my dear," she smiled patting me on the arm. "You three catch up...I'm going to take Ginny to Madame Malkin's to get some new robes. Come along Ginny."

I waved at Ginny as she followed after her mother. "OH! Ginny if you see Neville and Gran tell them I might be a little late!"

"Alright!" Ginny called over her shoulder.

"Thanks love!" I wrapped an arm around Hermione, "So...O.W.L.s are over...so it should be a pretty easy year."

"Ha! You wish Gwendolyn!" Hermione cried, "We've still got N.E.W.T.s to prepare for...this year is going to be even more hectic."

Ron put his hands over his ears, "I'm not listening to this, I'm not listening to this." He chanted.

"What's he not listening to?"

"HARRY!!!" I cried throwing my arms around Harry's neck.

"Nice to see you too, Gwen?" Harry muttered awkwardly patting me on the back.

"Oh. Right...sorry." I took my arms from around Harry, "Sorry about that, mate...I'm just glad to see some of my friends...all summer with only Gran and Neville...and you start longing for real company."

Harry grinned and gave Hermione a quick hug. That's when I caught site of Darcy, she was following her mum and brother with a rather glum expression on her face. I gave her a slight wave and saw her smile back. I turned to say something to Harry and the rest of them only to see them staring at Draco with sour expressions on their faces.

I punched Harry on the arm. "Oh give it a rest...I know Draco's a git...but Darcy's our friend..so wipe those looks off your faces."

"Yes ma'am."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I giggled, "Really, Ronald?! How could you be that clueless?" Then an arm was around my neck I shrieked. Whipping around, I found myself staring Darcy straight in the face.

"Damn it, Darcy!" I yelped slapping her on the arm. "Why do you always do that to us?"

She just continued to laugh as tears built up in her eyes. She leaned on Hermione who rolled her eyes and pushed Darcy off of her. "Where did you come from, anyway?" she asked.

Darcy wiped her eyes, "Oh, you know, around." She muttered cryptically.

The rest of us exchanged glances. Harry sighed, "Darcy, we saw you in that building where Greyback was. And where's your mum and brother?"

Darcy tried to force a grin. "You know my family. Draco can't get his robes at Madame Malkin's because of the "riff-raff" they serve there." We stood silently waiting for a better explanation. Darcy cleared her throat, "Bloody hell, but I'm starved. Florean Fortescue's, anyone?"

I rolled my eyes and wrapped an arm around Darcy's shoulder. "You bet...but this conversation isn't over yet." I glanced over my shoulder, "You guys coming?"

They nodded and followed Darcy and I to Florean Fortescue's. I sat down next to Darcy, I rubbed my eyes. "Damn, I'm tired...I swear Gran always has 20 new things for me to do everyday."

"Doesn't Neville help?" Darcy asked.

"Oh he tries...but you know...he...tends to drop things." I laughed a little, "And now that he's grown...well...it's gotten worse."

"Worse?! Is that even possible?" Ron scoffed as I kicked him under the table. "Ouch, not cool Gwen," He muttered.

I smirked, "Yes well...you can't insult my twin...only I can do that."

"Oh sure that has go-"

"So..school...how is everyone looking forward to it?" Hermione asked, glancing at Ron and then at me.

Darcy and I shared a look. "Oh we can't wait," we muttered sarcastically at the same time.
