Honk Honk Part Two: Electric Boogaloo
Penny was giggling like an idiot. Did she care? Not in the slightest. To be entirely honest, she couldn’t will herself to care about much more than a pair of beautiful, wild eyes and the softest lips in the world. Yes, Penny was caught up in yet another daydream about none other than Robbie Donovan. Oh, that boy would be the death of her, she was very near certain of it.
Still, she chuckled softly to no one and simply flopped down her bed in the Hufflepuff dormitory. She subconsciously grabbed the nearest pillow and pulled it into a tight embrace. She didn’t bother lying to herself anymore, she wanted to hold him and never let go. Oh, what she would give to bury her head in the crook of his neck and be overwhelmed by the scent of rich, crisp apples. How she wished to take things just that little bit further with him. She didn’t think she’d ever have enough of him, there was always going to be something about him to obsess over.
“Oi, has anyone seen-” Tonks came bareling in only to skid to a stop upon seeing the state Penny was in. “Oh, shit, not this again.”
“Have you ever been in love, Tonks?”
“No, I haven’t, Shakespeare. And I don’t bloody plan on it.” She grimaced. Tonks knew it was too late to leave, Penny was in one of her little moods where all she can do was go on and on for what felt like hours.
“Oh, it’s like the whole world suddenly makes sense! It sounds silly, I know but it feels like he’s all that I need.” Briefly, she glanced at Tonks who was staring at her as if she had three heads. “When he touches me it’s like… Bloody hell, it’s just magical. Somehow he manages to alternate between being pretty and sweet one minute but so, so enticing the next!”
“Just fucking snog him already.” Tonks looked as if she wanted to dive into the Black Lake and have a chat with the giant squid. It would probably be more interesting than Penny’s rambles.
“You see, that’s the problem. I-It sort of feels like… Just making out isn’t enough? I feel like one day, and just one day, mind you, not anytime soon…” She licked her lips before shifting slightly. “I think one day I’d like to go further-”
“Okay, I’m going to need you to stop! This is far too much information!” Tonks jabbered. “Besides, that tie was already too much for my liking.”
“Tie? Wait, no-” A sudden rush of adrenaline coursed through her as the terror hit her like a truck. Penny promptly grabbed her house tie and almost started choking on her own air at the sight. To her horror, it was blue and bronze, nothing like Hufflepuff’s yellow and black. She could only imagine that there must had been some kind of mix up after her and Robbie’s little tryst in that broom closet. “Oh, no, no, no, what if someone saw? What will they think? Has he noticed yet? Tonks, what’s going to happen?”
“I dunno, mate, I just wanted to find my slippers.”
