Cho had nearly died laughing when she had seen Fleur abandon the top table when Grahame arrived. She poured a glass of champagne and looked around at who had arrived.

She saw Harry with that Zach boy. Brilliant freelancer by all accounts. She frowned slightly trying to recall some of the articles he had written. Didn't someone say that he had done a lot of work in the Muggle world? Cho sipped at her chamapgne and looked round to see who else had arrived.

"Er, hey, Cho." Ron smiled, a glass of champagne in his hand. "You... look lovely." He had decided that it was best to compliment all the women because he knew exactly how much stress his mother had gone to over her outfit and knew that all the other women had probably gone through the same thing.

"So what did you think of the ceremony?"

Cho jumped when Ron spoke to her. "Sorry," she apologised. "I was miles away."

"The ceromony was beautiful, wasn't it?" She eyed Ron and wondered whether she dig a little on something Lavender had said that morning.

She opened her eyes innocently and asked lightly, "Enjoy Charlie's stag do?"

Ron grinned. "That's okay. Everyone seems a bit dreamy today. Must be a wedding thing." He nodded. "Yeah, it was. They looked really happy, too. Nervous, but happy."

His cheeks reddened. "Er, yeah. It was alright. Not too much of a hangover."

Cho noticed the blush and realised that Lavender was right on the mark that something had happened. By all accounts, Charlie wasn't saying a word about it.

"Oh that's good. It sounds like it's been like the feeding of the five thousand at their house over the last few days. Lavender thought that it was just Charlie that ate like a horse but apparently all of the people from the reserves eat like there's no tomorrow. Must be in the job description that they must all have hollow thighs."

She gave him a bright smile.

Very firm, muscular thighs, Ron agreed inwardly. "Yeah," something like that," he said. "Course, I've got an appetite to match, so I fit in fine."

He noticed the look on her face. "What are you smiling about?"

Cho smiled sweetly. "Nothing. Som you stayed over at theirs then? I thought you had moved into your rooms here?"

She looked amused but wanted to continue digging.

"Er, well, you know..." Ron took a hasty gulp of his champagne, trying not to splutter when the bubbles hit his throat. "I just thought I could be more helpful there than here at Hogwarts."

He shrugged, not sure what Cho knew, but with a feeling that she knew something. "They're not a bad bunch, actually."

Cho sipped her champagne a little more gracefully and looked round. "Are any of them here yet? I've only really heard some of the stories."

She glanced in Fleur's direction. "Fleur said that most of them are very funny but some of it's very close to the boe."

"A few of them." Ron nodded towards a group of one of the tables. "Some of them are from the Romanian reserve. Doesn't look like Desi or John are here yet, though." He took another drink of his champagne.

"Yeah, they're alright. I can see why Char gets on with them."

Cho looked at the table that Ron had indicated and she heard the loud laughter coming from it.

"It looks like they are enjoying themselves in any case." She smiled as she caught the end of one of the jokes.

"Same sort of humour as Charlie at any rate. I haven't heard jokes like that since the last journalist award shindig."

"Yeah," Ron agreed a little vaguely, wondering when John was going to show up.

He glanced around the Great Hall, easily spotting his parents and Lavender's parents cooing over Rosie. Ron frowned. "What's happened to Char and Lavender?"

Cho looked roud as well, frowning. "Dunno. I haven't seen them since the end of the service."

She shrugged. "Maybe they're sneaked off for some aloe time. There's loads of people here."

As she finished her comment, a stocky man approached them and nodded at her. She held out her hand said "I don't think we've met. I'm Cho."

He grinned back. "We haven't. I'm John. I worked with Charlie out in Romania."

Ron was glad that John was so forward because it stopped him from having to make any awkward introductions and stammer all over the place.

"Hey, John," he said with a small smile. "We were just saying that the bride and groom seem to have disappeared en route."

John rolled his eyes. "Horny bastard."

Cho nearly choked on her drink with laughter at the look on Ron's face as John continued. "Can't seem to keep it in his pants - that's his problem. Not that anyone was complaining. He snores."

Cho managed to swallow and say "Not those exact words but that was the general gist."

As much as Ron was shocked by what John said about Charlie, there was something about his bluntness that was a bit of a turn-on. Ron tried not to think about that, as it was neither the time nor the place.

Noticing that John's hands were empty, Ron said, "You need a drink. Back in a minute."

Cho managed not to laugh at Ron as he disappeared to get John a drink. She turned to John and said, “Very sweet boy that one. Bit slow and easily embarrassed but very sweet all the same.”

They watched as Ron had a conversation with Zach at the bar and him blush hard enough to light up the room. He returned, still blushing and thrust a drink into John’s hands.

“Finally, Charlie and Lavender have decided to show their faces. Bout time,” he said.
