One and Only ; George Weasley

Chapter 10

“I don’t get why they’re so obsessed with him.” I told Kathleen as we sat in the same arched window in the hallways surrounding the courtyard. We were facing each other and both had a leg outside and a leg inside. We had sat like this since lunch and we both currently had a free lesson while George and Fred were in class.

“He’s hot.” Kathleen shrugged, while we both watched Krum as he worked out in the middle of the courtyard.

“He’s not.”

“You’re only saying that because you have a boyfriend.”

“No.” I chuckled. “I’m saying it because I mean it. And because I have a boyfriend.”

“I want a boyfriend.” Kathleen sighed, leaning her head back against the bricks.

“What about Fred?”

“Fred?” She laughed.

“Yeah. What’s wrong with Fred?”

“There’s nothing wrong with Fred.”

“You’ve already lost your virginity to him.” I said with a smirk and she rolled her eyes at me as she went back to watching Krum.

“Not everyone has to date the person that took their virginity. Fred only slept with me as a favor and I don’t like him like that at all. We’re all best friends. He is only my friend.”

“Okay.” I nodded, looking at Krum again. He was basically showing off only. He was making push-ups with an arm on his back while a group of girls were standing a few feet away, gushing over him.

“Why are you so against Krum?” Kathleen told me. “He’s probably a nice guy.”

“Not from what I’ve seen.” I said. “George and Fred got angry because Krum had been looking at me as if he, and I’m quoting Fred; wanted to bone me so Fred went to confront him and he acted very murderous about the whole thing. He was obviously overreacting so I went after him to try and stop him. We found Krum and he acted like a jerk. He told me to control my boyfriend and said some things about the Weasley family having a temper because they’re red-heads.”

“That happened while I was in the hospital wing?” She asked me. I hummed in response. “And Krum’s been hitting on you?”

“He hasn’t been hitting on me.” I explained. “But he keeps looking at me and a few days ago he winked at me.”

“While he knows you’re with George.” “Well, yeah.”

“What a pig!” She exclaimed and I looked to see Krum who had heard Kathleen. Hopefully he didn’t know she was talking about him. His eyes landed on me and I looked away, not bothering with him. A moment later, I heard steps and out of the corner of my eye, I could see him walk over.

“Lizzie, right?” He asked, causing me to look at him.

“Elizabeth.” I corrected him. “Only my friends call me Lizzie.”

“So what can I call you?” He asked with a smile as he leaned against the arched window.

“Elizabeth.” I told him.

“Huh.” He mumbled, watching me with narrowed eyes. “I was surprised when I first laid eyes on you in the goblet room.”

“And why is that?” I questioned.

“Home in Bulgaria we don’t have near as beautiful girls as you.”

How bloody cheesy. I scrunched my nose in disgust, wanting to throw up.

“Listen, mate.” Kathleen said. Krum turned to look at her, still smiling. “There are tons of single girls on this school but Lizzie is not one of them.”

“Well, people have partners all the time and then they swap them out for new ones.” I scoffed at his comment, realizing that he was an even bigger jerk.

“We’re not talking about bloody shoes here.” Kathleen said. “Leave her alone. She doesn’t want you.”

“We’ll see.” Krum said, looking at me again before walking away, the crowd of girls following him.

“I’ve changed my mind.” Kathleen told me. “He just completely turned me off with that personality.”

“Yeah.” I muttered, shaking my head before looking at her. “Don’t tell George or Fred about this, okay? They’d both freak out and go into protective mode and honestly I like them better when they’re happy and make jokes than when they look like they could burst out of anger.”

“It’s probably for the best.” She agrees. “To not tell them.”
