..we found Mr. Duval unconscious in a secret passageway under the school.
…tripped on a rock, and did some nasty damage to the back of his head…
Madam Pomfrey’s not sure when he’ll wake up…
Once Jeff finally reached the Hospital Wing after what felt like miles of running through the halls after he’d received Professor McGonagall’s letter, he burst through the doors! Only to end up regretting it when he walked in on a small portion of the faculty trying and failing to quietly consult to each other in the corner, including Professor Longbottom, Madam Pomfrey, Professor Sprout and Professor McGonagall herself. He didn’t have time to focus on whatever it was they were not so quietly debating with each other as his feet carried him over to the occupied bed right next to Madam Pomfrey’s office.
“N-Nick?” He asked quietly as he approached the bed. The sight of his boyfriend laying unconscious before him and knowing he wasn’t about to wake up any time soon was enough cause for tears to fall from Jeff’s brown eyes. However he kept them hidden as he moved his way over until he was sitting on the edge of the bed by Nick’s side and with a tentative hand he picked up on of Nick’s hands and squeezed it firmly. “I’m sorry.” He whispered quietly, emotions racing across his face with every new bit of guilt that thrust through his heart at the sight of his boyfriend passed out on the bed. He felt guilty for arguing with his boyfriend right before this happened, and for pressuring him to spend more time with him even though he knew how stressful Nick’s work load already was. Maybe if he hadn’t, then Nick wouldn’t be here? But he’s trusted Nick, that the muggleborn knew what he was doing but obviously he didn’t. However what would happen in the future involved them having a talk but Jeff didn’t want to think of it now. Right now he just wanted Nick to wake up and to tell him how much he loved him. At one point he could faintly hear people shuffling around and a hand on his shoulder, who he guessed was Professor Longbottom before finally he was alone.
Jeff’s face was pale, a slight flush on his cheeks from running to get here, his golden hair a mess and his clothes were creased and looked like the Gryffindor had just grabbed something random off of the floor before coming here. Which is pretty much what he did. He didn’t care about his appearance at all. The only matter he could think about had happened for this to happen and more importantly, when Nick would wake up. After a while of just sitting there, Jeff eventually felt himself silently cry until he was hunched over the bed. His upper body resting against the Hospital bed by Nick’s side all the while their hands remained tightly clasped together.
Brittany sprinted down the hall with a second year holding to her back tight as she ran. Brittany had been teaching one of her usual after class charms tutoring sessions. Her student had been flirting with a near by boy and missed the part where she had warned them that the spell could back fire if they didn’t focus. The young hufflepuff raised her wand, but was thinking about the boy next to her instead of the task at hand. The spell exploded at the tip causing a desk to blow up and sending the girl flying into a set of tables and chairs. Brittany was certain she had at least a broken arm and concussion.
Brittany used her foot to push open the hospital wing door open with madam pomfry scurrying around the room trying to help. ” Just a broken arm. Set her over there Miss. Pierce.” Brittany set the girl down and was about to leave when she saw a pile of blonde hair sobbing next to a near by bed. She recognized Santana’s best friend Jeff in his gryffindor robes even though she had hardly spoken to him before. She bit her lip unsure of what to do.
After a moment she walked over and put her hand on his back rubbing small circles . She recognized the boy on the bed but his name escaped her.
" Hey..it’s okay. What happen to your friend?" She asked softly doing her best to comfort the boy
As hot as it was to be needed so bad like that, Santana didn’t want it to happen ever again either. She laughed lowly and licked her lips. “A sex coma? Is that what’s in store for me tonight babe?” she asked as she playfully bumped Brittany’s hips with her own. “Uhhh, well, considering the only Veela I’ve met is you, then no, no ugly Veela. Since he’s related to you I guess he can’t be all that bad.” Santana nodded to show she was ready, then quirked an eyebrow when Brittany suddenly stopped. “Um… wow, okay. Worse than you? …. So he’s pretty much going to try to have sex with me as soon as I walk through the fireplace?” she asked half jokingly, though wondered if Jason was a bit of a dick. “Whatever. I’m can handle anyone.”
Brittany winked. ” By how hungry I am I’d take a guess and say that you wont be able to move for several hours and you’ll be stiff for days.” Brittany said bumping Santana back ” But wait San… Louis is a Veela and so is Victorie and Jayde.” Brittany shook her head she was thinking to hard about it. ” Uhh okay lets go.” Brittany tossed the powder and the two were absorbed by emerald flames.
Brittany coughed as she stepped out of the fire place. ” Jas? You still here?” She called. Jason stepped out from the kitchen in his boxers holding a turkey sandwhich. ” Hey-oh! Baby sister! Why are you back so soon? I thought you went to find you’re bit.” Brittany cleared her throat as Jason caught a glimps of Santana. He leaned against the door frame of the kitchen. ” Is this her? She’s totally hot for a regular chick I guess. Defiantly has a nice rack.” he said streching his arms causing all of his tone muscles to flex. “Jason really, we talked about this?” The tall older young man shrugged. “That was sooo a complement. I could have pointed out how negative her energy seems to be. Doesn’t that get draining?”
Brittany sighed. ” Santana this is my brother Jason , Jason this is my girlfriend Santana Lopez.” Jason’s eyes snapped back to Santana ” Santana Lopez as in the Pureblood princess turned out cast turned Quidditch player Santana?” Brittany locked her fingers with Santana. ” He’s an avid Quidditch follower. It seems I’m the only on in my family who thinks it’s barbaric. ” Hey do eather of you lovely ladies want a sandwhich? I chopped up that rat running around. He made great Sandwhich meat!” Jason said with a stupid grin. Brittany gasped , but Max came yipping from out of the bathroom. ” Jason that’s not funny!” She scolded. ” Sure it is. You just have to lighten up a little baby sis. ” he walked over and pulled her into a big hug and kissed her forehead. ” Besides I have years of big brother teasing to make up for.” He said giving Santana a wink
“Just the fact that you waited for a month shows me that you are gaining more control. Maybe not complete control, but sure of a hell lot more than that one time when we visited Beauxbatons.” Santana took Brittany’s hand and smirked. “Hm, I’m not opposed to rough, but from what I’ve seen of your Veela form… that’s a little much. I’d like to remain in one piece once we’ve finished.” She hummed and nodded. “Jason. Okay. Cool. Is he hot?” Once they got to the fireplace that was set up for them, Santana huffed. She felt like she was about to “be introduced to the parents” or something close to it. “You, uh… ready?”
Brittany shook her head. That was not a good night for her. ” Yes I remember and I really don’t want that to happen ever again. I’d like to leave you in a Sex coma not a coma from sex…if you know what I mean.” Brittany said candidly. As they walked Brittany told Santana more little things about her trip until the reached the fire place in Ravenclaw. She gave Santana an odd , but honest look. ” Santana, have you ever met an ugly Veela before?” She sounded as though she were genuinely curious. ” I’m ready are you ready?” She giggled. ” Don’t worry I’m nervous too” Brittany was about the throw the floo powder in when she paused. “Oh one other thing….he’s kind of a flirt and by flirt I mean worse then me when I was single—really single. ” She clarified ” Jason doesn’t really care if a person is gay, straight or bi. If it has legs and is good looking he’ll defiantly say something so…um…don’t be offended. He’s also kind of all about being Veela in like a cocky way.” Brittany said with a small shrug. She just didn’t want Santana to be caught off guard by her brother’s over the top personality. “He tends to say exactly what he’s thinking.”
Santana licked her lips as her breath hitched slightly, loving the feeling of her girlfriend’s teeth and lips on her neck after so long. “Babe don’t sell yourself so short. Every person in Hogwarts knows just how lucky I am that I’m with you.” Santana’s heart jump started as Brittany’s lips trailed lower. She closed her eyes and tilted her head back, though cringed when the words “we can take care of that later” hit her ears. Cooling herself off by taking a really deep breath, she nodded. “Y-yeah, of course. I would love to… meet your brother,” she said with a chuckle at the end. She stood up and offered her hand. “You know, I’m really proud of you. You seem to be able to control yourself incredibly well now. You used to not even be able to wait a week without Veela-ing out.”
" Thank you San." She said softly pulling her to her feet. Brittany pulled Santana in and wrapped her arms around the girls neck. " I’m not nearly as in-control as you think I am baby. I’ve just waited this long. I think I can wait a little longer. Tonight though for sure. Otherwise my other half might come out to play and she plays a little too rough if you know what I mean." Brittany said with a devilish smile. She took Santana’s hand like a young school girl and started walking back to the castle. " McGonagal already set up a net work for me. His name is Jason if I didn’t mention that to you already." She said swinging their arms back and forth.
Santana grinned. She had always wanted to be the one to ask Brittany to marry her. About a dozen different scenarios of how that could work out played in her head all at once. She shook them off since she had plenty of time to plan it out later. “The whole thing,” she said in affirmation, not able to wipe the smile off her face. She chuckled. “I’m the coal miner who’s been searching for a diamond their whole lives, and was lucky enough to find one. It’d be foolish to ever let that diamond go now that it’s mind.” She blushed a little, feeling incredibly sappy about what she just said. But she meant it. She noticed a flash of desire in Brittany’s eyes right before their lips were pressed together in silence. Santana sighed through her nose, relaxing instantly into the kiss. Her hand rested in the small of Brittany’s back and pulled her closer. Santana whispered a little breathlessly against her lips, “Baby are you hungry? It’s been a whole month… I think.”
Brittany scoffed at Santana’s ideal of her self. ” Not even close.” She groaned as she continued to kiss her love. ” You’re something more precious then gold and jewels. Next to you I’m just a dirty old rock. You are the Sun.” She kissed the right side of Santana’s neck ” And the Moon.” She kissed the left side making sure to leave small bite marks here and there. ” You’re all the stars in the sky and you’re all mine.” She said possessively kissing the top of her sternum. ” …mmm soo hungry..” she purred as her instincts started to kick in. Brittany’s fingers dug into the dirt as she tried to keep in control. She waited this long. She could wait a little longer. It was just difficult. ” …we can take care of that later… right now I want you to eat—meet my brother.” Brittany said sitting up on Santana’s stomach calming herself down.
Warmth rose in Santana’s skin as Brittany whispered just before stealing a kiss. It hadn’t been until this month of Brittany being gone that Santana realized just how satisfactory her kisses are. No one could measure up. When Brittany made the comment about a compromise, Santana rose an eyebrow, but didn’t respond to it. Once she heard the word ‘yes’, she beamed just before getting pinned to the ground. “So it’s agreed that I’ll be the one to pop the question then?” she asked, lowering her voice. Her eyes darted between Brittany’s eyes and lips a couple times before whispering, “You don’t no how much I missed you. It’s like not being able to see a single diamond in a mountain of coal for such a long time… You’re just..” She adjusted just enough so she could trace the outline of Brittany’s jaw with the tips of her fingers. “-So perfect.”
Brittany blushed and laughed ” I don’t think there will be much poping since we already know where this is taking us, but yes. I want you to be the one to ask me, if that’s okay? The rings. The down on one knee. The whole thing..” Brittany said with red cheeks. Her heart beat double time as she stared down into Santana’s big bright eyes. ” If I’m a diamond than what are you? You are more perfect then me in every possible way.” She hushed feeling over come by a sudden lustful need for Santana. Brittany leaned down and pressed her lips to Santana’s again taking her time . She wanted to savor every delicious detail.
When Brittany didn’t say yes right away, Santana pulled back a little more and sat on her heels. That was… not expected. She had thought that they were back together again when Brittany asked if she still wanted her. All Santana wanted to do by asking her this was to make it official so she could say it out loud. She didn’t actually think they weren’t really together again. “Um… wow, okay,” she breathed, running her fingers through her hair again. Were things between them ever simple? Couldn’t they make it simple just once? It felt like something that shouldn’t be complicated in the first place. “We can… take the fiancé part out for now,” she offered. “But babe… there’s no way I can call you just my friend. Either way I’m in love with you, but…” she shrugged and touched Brittany’s hand lightly. “Be my girlfriend? For now? When we’re both ready and happy and set for the future, then I’ll blow your mind and make you my fiancé. Officially.”
Brittany laced her fingers with Santana’s and pulled her back down toward her. “mmm I’ve missed you so bad..” She whispered stealing a kiss. ” That’s a compromise. People who are in good strong relationships make those. ” Brittany said thoughtfully out loud. ” I don’t want to rush back into anything , but you and I have a strong love and relationship, so yes Santana. You can call me your girlfriend again for now.” Brittany rolled over pinning Santana down in the grass beneath her. “And just so we’re clear I want to marry you more then anything. So when you ask don’t be scared because the answer will be yes.” Brittany hovered over Santana with her long blond hair falling down like a curtain.
