"Look, it's a gift, not a bomb. If you don't want it, give it to Draco. He gave his to Blaise."

Fred waved a passing waiter over and grabbed the tray of fire whiskey from him.

"Why don't I take these from you. It's starting to look heavy."

Charlie relaxed and then aplogised. "I've had your gifts before remember? The last one turned me into a minutre Welsh Green for 20 minutes."

He pocketed the parcel. "Later when I can appreciate it." He took a shot of the whiskey and toasted Fred.

Fred tossed the shot back, then let out a ring of smoke.

"Your loss. Cindi will be ready for you whenever you need her. So, what did Lavender have to say about this little shindig? I'm sure it was something along the lines of 'behave, no strippers, no pranks, and for gods sake, no Fred or George' right? People seem to be wary of me for some reason."

Fred took another shot from the tray, laughing as he made a dragon float through the fading ring.

Charlie grinned and then had another shot. He blew a dragon which chased Fred's.

"It was more along the lines of don't throw up on the carpet, no touching and if your feckless brother shows up, tell him to owl Cho."

He fumbled for his cigarettes and then lit one.

"Great, now she doesn't trust me. Tell her I said that her telling Cho is a hit below the belt."

Fred grinned. Taking his wand, he charmed his dragon to evade Charlie's forcing it to crash into a wall. Laughing, he said, "Well, I guess it's about time for her not to trust me. She is part of the family now, isn't she?"

Charlie laughed as he blew smoke rings. "I don't think she ever trusted you much. She lived with you for years, remember?"

He studied Fred and then asked, trying not to slur his words "So, you are seeing Cho then? I'm finding out loads of stuff tonight."

"Cho's different, Charlie. She isn't some bird that flies in and out of a bloke's life. She helps me and trusts me. Well more than others have."

Fred thougth back to their day in the Markets. She opened his world so much.

Charlie grinned. "It sounds like it could get serious then. Don't fuck it up then."

A picture popped into his mind of Cho sitting in their front room, animatedly talking about something with Lavender and her face had just lit up like a candle. At least she would challenge Fred.

"She's too good to fuck up on a whim. Plus, as already prooven, she'd curse me within an inch of my life if I did anything." Fred shrugged and took a pretzel from the bowl on the tray.
second_of_seven From: second_of_seven Date: June 29th, 2006 08:05 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Charlie looked bemused as he picked at the pretzels.

"Sounds like she'll be more than a match for you. Just remind me not to come round after you have an argument. I don't think either of you will be still be standing after throwing jinxes all over the shop."
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 08:08 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"Rule of thumb, Charlie. Don't fight at work or in the bedroom. Keep those places argument free and the world will be a better place. However, it's up to you if you wanna move the bedroom to the office, because that's always a good move."

Munching on another pretzel, Fred smiled.

Charlie laughed at that.

"I'll pass on that as the smell of dragon shit is almost impossible to get out of your hair. Teaching on the other hand has a wider range of possiblities."

"Well, you know what they say about young minds. So easily molded. Kinda makes me wish that Filch were still here. With my help, those kids would have given him a run for his money."

Fred smiled as he thought back to all those hours he spent in Filch's office.

"Those were the days."

Charlei laughed. "See, I thought I taught you better than to get caught. That's where you went wrong. No-one could prove some the stuff I did was me."

He shaked a finger at Fred. "That's the beauty." He patted his pockets and asked "Fancy some Gillyweed?"
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 08:27 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"Nah. Awful stuff, Gillyweed. Makes me sneeze for some reason. As as far as you not getting caught, we got blamed for a majority of the things you did while you were at Hogwarts. Don't know who you pinned it on before we got there. Bet they were legends thought."

Fred laughed as he sneezed. It was starting. Wasn't really upsetting, it just tickled his nose.

Charlie inhaled deeply as he took a drag of his joint. "Nah, McGongall suspected me but I got away with murder." he smiled slowly.

"I think it was she couldn't stand the thought of trying to decipher my writing if she set me lines or had to do extra study.
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 08:36 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Fred laughed.

"Well, anyone would hate to be shackled with that task. Your writing looks like chicken scratch. I swear, that first recipe for the daydream potion you sent me took three and a half weeks to decipher. Then, imagine the look on poor George's face when he realized, as he was testing it that we mis-deciphered it. You know, he was spotty for a week. Thank Merlin mum never found out. She would have stuffed and mounted your head on a stick."

Charlie looked vaguley guilty and then shrugged it off. "Well, I was just testing you. Why should I waste all my efforts just giving it to you. It took me a month sweet talking some Ravenclaws into letting me use their library."

He grinned as he took another drag. "Plus if Mum finds out now, I think I have enough brownie points in the bag to get me out of anything."
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 08:44 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"Yeah, yeah. Just because you're getting married and have provided her with a grandchild that she so desperately wanted means you aren't off the hook. One wrong move on any of our parts and she'd avada us, and you know it."

His mum, angry, was a force to be reckoned with. He always thought that if he got his mum angry enough, she could have taken Voldemort out in one fell swoop and still would have made it home in time to cook dinner.

Charlie laughed again. "Well, she'll have to do it after kitten finished with me. She'll have my guts for flaming garters."

He looked slightly bemused. "Looks like the Weasley men go for strong women."
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 08:55 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"It's a weakness, I tell you."

Fred's smile faded as he thought of Angelina. She was strong enough to dish it out and to take it.

Shaking his head to clear the image, Fred grabbed two shots and handed one to Charlie.

"To Weasley Men and their strong women!"

Charlie toasted him as he watch an odd expression flicker acros Fred's face.

"Nothing we could do about it really. It's in the blood." He coughed slightly as the whsikey went down.
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 09:01 pm (UTC) (Tags)
"It's always a matter of blood. Now, there's a rumor going around here that there are naked dancing women in the immediate vicinity. I won't tell Lavender if you won't tell Cho."

Fred stood, albeit a little tipsy, grabbed Charlie's elbow and started to make their way, weaving a bit, to the strippers.

Charlie stumbled to his feet and said "Do I look stupoid. I like having sex thank you very much."

They walked past John boy and Ron who were looking very cosy, through to the stage.

Funnily enough, as he watched an attracive dance onstage, he couldn't help but think of Lavender.
fred_the_red From: fred_the_red Date: June 29th, 2006 09:10 pm (UTC) (Tags)
Fred glanced over at Ron. "Well, that's new." However, soon his Weasley attention span shot over to the stage. Watching the dancer work miracles with the pole had his mind wandering.

Wandering to thoughts of Cho.
