Paradise in Winter

The meet

She gently placed her hand on the doorknob. Her fingers wrapped around it, twisted it and pulled the door to herself, revealing the unexpected guest on her house door.

There was a man who was looking back at a figure out of her eye vision. He turned around at the sound of opening of the door.

His features were sharp and had a cold look on his face. His messy blond hair falling over his forehead, as his hair had a bit of snow in it. His pale cheeks flushed due to the downfall in temperature. He was wearing a white shirt, with sleeves folded up, showing his pale wrist and his shiny silver watch. A velvet tie hanging lose around his neck, with black shoes that gave him an official outlook. His grey metallic eyes met her sapphire ones, and he took in the skinny figure standing in front of him.

Her red hair bundled roughly in a high pony, with checks flushing as red as her hair, due to sudden cold winds falling over them. She wore a grey top which reached to her palms, and navy colored, skinny jeans which hugged her legs tightly. The thing that caught his eyes was her footwear, which were simple with no art but puffy, white fur.

She folded her hands, breaking off the cold breeze. And let out a heavy breath though her mouth, causing a little fog in the air.

"Yes?" She asked, in her sweet sugary voice, looking up straight in his eyes.

The fact that her height was a bit smaller than him, crossed her mind, but she ignored it.

"Sorry if I disturbed you." He said, in his ringing voice.

"Err... It's alright. I am sorry, but just out of curiosity, aren't you cold? It's snowing, you know..." She added, a bit hesitant but nevertheless, asked it.

"I grew up in a place where it snowed every month, so it's not really a big deal for me." He answered, with a smile running across his features.

"Actually, my friend here wants to speak to your roommate." He added, with a coy smile.

She looked over his shoulder, a black haired boy was pacing around, nervously. She immediately recognised him, he was her cousin, Albus Severus Potter. Her arms opened, unconsciously.

"Al?" She called, at which the boy stopped dead in his tracks and looked at her.

He recognised her and went over to her and stood beside his blond friend.

"Hey! Can I talk to Johanna?" He said nervously to his cousin.

"No, you can't. You break her poor heart by your stupidity and now I won't let you be near her, ever again." She replied, again folding her arms, but this time to show her disapproval.

"I was drunk! Come on! You know me, I never cheat on my girlfriends." He said, now panicking that his own cousin won't understand, so how would he convince his girlfriend.

Albus Potter and Johanna Brown were co-workers, and that's where their story began. They became good friends and got to know each other, in late night shifts. And soon, got together. It had been only two or three months, when he screwed it all up. Albus went to a bar party, with his all guy friends. And there he got drunk, pretty bad.

Johanna went to his place, after work. It was pretty late, so she assumed he maybe asleep, and hence, used the spare key to get herself in. And when she went inside, she saw him in the bed with another girl. She fumed and screamed at him, and came home crying and snobbing.

"But you did. Al, really, just go away or I won't think twice before punching you." She said fuming with anger.

Albus shook his head and continued, ignoring what his cousin said.

"Look it wasn't as it seemed! I wasn't cheating! It was Domique! She came over, while I was drunk and made me a potion that made be sobber again, and lectured me with other drinking shit! She then said that she was there cause we had a plan, which I forgot, to see a movie! We were watching this really horror movie and I have no idea when I fell asleep! I was woken up with Jo screaming and crying! And then my head was spinning and I fainted! Today, there I woke up to see a note by Dom, telling what happened! God! Domique is my cousin, for crying out loud! Please let me tell her that!" He ranted.

She looked confused with the rant which his cousin said. And when she understood, she started laughing.

The blond joined her, which angered Albus, who pushed his cousin aside and went inside to his girlfriend.

"Finally found someone who gets the humour in this!" Said the blond between his laughs.

"Albus has the worst timing ever!" She said, laughing along.

She was happy for her friend too. She knew, Johanna really liked her cousin, and it would have broken her if it had been something else.

They soon stopped laughing and inhaled heavily.

She coughed and stretched her hand out to him, offering a hand shake, which he took.

"I am Rose Weasley." She said, smiling.

"Good, to finally meet you. I am Scorpius Malfoy." He replied, grinning all the way.
