"Oooh, just as charming as everyone said," Romilda remarked, although she did blush a little when Charlie kissed her cheek.

"Pity it doesn't run in the family," said Demelza.

Lavender glanced at Charlie. "They knew Ron," she told him, which really explained everything. She nudged him. "I think Desi's waving at us," she said. Smiling at Romilda and Demelza, she added, "It was nice talking to you."

Charlie laughed. "Well I don't blame you then for a bit wary. Nice meeting you both," he said before they walked off.

They walked over and joined Desi and the rest of the tamers. Desi gave Charlie a tight hug and then kissed Lavender.

"Bout bloody time you two made it round here. We've had to sit here and watch people play tonsil hockey including your brother."

"Which one?" Lavender asked, and then spotted Ron and John over at the bar, looking rather enthusiastic. She wrinkled her nose. "Okay, that's something I could have done without seeing." Deciding to warn Desi, Lavender said, "Apparently Ron's planning a trip to Romania, just so you know."

Desi rolled her eyes. "Bloody brilliant," she said sarcastically. "Had enough of those two the last couple of days."

Charlie winced. "Has it been that bad? You could always come in and sleep on the sofa if they've been that noisy."

He looked amused as a thought struck him. "Or I could sic the fairies on them. Or you could just book some leave as soon as you know Ron's coming."

He paled when he realised what he had said. "As it were."

Lavender groaned, burying her head against Charlie's shoulder, really wishing that he hadn't said that.

"Right!" Desi grabbed one of the full shot glasses on the table - apparently the tamers had been busy at the bar - and thrust it towards Charlie. "You need to do a shot for that."

Charlie brushed Lavender's hair and then downed the shot. He looked at thr empty glass and asked "What the hell was that? That was nice but strong."

Desi grinned. "One of the South African tamers indtroduced us to it. It's creme de menthe and Baileys. Goes down a treat."

"Here, let me taste." Lavender turned Charlie's head, kissing him. "Mmm. That is nice." She grinned at him, secretly hoping that she was embarrassing him a little in front of his dragon tamer friends.

She took the empty glass from him, putting it down on the table. "It's really great that you've come all this way to be here." She looked up at Charlie, smiling. "I know it means a lot to Char."

Charlie turned bright red as they cat called and whistled. He smiled as they settled down.

"I wasn't expecting so many to turn up. It's wonderful and our garden looks like the back end of a festival but I'm so glad you all came."

Desi grinned. "Wouldn't have missed for the world. Needed to send you off with a bang."

Lavender giggled. "Yes. Goodbye, bachelorhood, hello, married life. Soon he'll be an old married man, shuffling around the house in slippers and going bald."

She bit her lip, trying not to laugh as she knew that hair loss was a touchy subject.

Charlie gave her a Look. "It's not too late to change my mind," he teased.

Desi was nearly killing herself laughing at the picture Lavender painted. "It'll never happen. He'll be the one sneaking the bottles of fire whiskey into the nursing home and chatting up the nurses." She looked unholily amused.

"Can't you imagine? I tamed dragons once, you know."

Seeing that Cho and Fleur were alone, Grahame and Fred presumably off somewhere else, Lavender pulled slightly on Charlie's arm. "Of course you did," she assured him with a playful pout.

"Talking of dragons, though, let's go see the bridesmaids."
