Moving into Hogwarts
Who: Ron, Charlie, Zach.
What: Moving into Hogwarts
When: The weekend
Where: Hogwarts
Status: Incomplete

Having signed his contract to become Hogwarts' new groundskeeper, Ron decided that it would probably be a good idea to move into Hogwarts. Although Hagrid's old hut was still standing, Ron had opted for quarters in the main castle. Besides, the hut was built for Hagrid rather than a normal-sized bloke.

He propped the door of his quarters open with one of his boxes to try and get some air circulating. The heat was unbearable and he'd already opened all the windows. Ron frowned and realised that no-one seemed to be around, so he tugged off his t-shirt. It wasn't much better, but it would do for now.

Charlie had remembered Molly mentioning that Ron was moving up to the castle this weekend and thought that it might be a goof time to see him.

"Knock, knock," he said tapping on the open door. He smothered a grin as Ron jumped a foot in the air.

"You're going to have to do something with your wards if you don't want to be surprised."

Ron scowled, his heart still beating a little fast from the surprise of his brother's arrival. "Haven't bloody unpacked yet. Of course I haven't set the wards up."

He looked at Charlie. "What brings you up here, then?"

Charlie gave him a wolfish grin as he strolled in. "Kitten said I was getting under her feet and her mum was due any minute. I decided to let them have some time together."

He looked at the untidy room. "Want a hand?"

Ron grinned. "Um, yeah. That would be good." he nodded towards the door. "There should still be a couple of boxes outside the door. Can you bring them in?"

Looking around at the various boxes and bags, Ron frowned. "I didn't realise I had so much stuff until I had to pack it up."

Charlie laughed as he brought the last couple of boxes in. "ALways knew you had the packrat gene. I managed to escape that one."

He looked around for a clear spot to put the boxes and finally rested them on top of the sturdiest looking box. "I'm surprised Mum isn't here making sure you move properly."

Charlie made the tea as he groaned. "She'll have bags of energy then. I have a funny feeling that youn't be able to turn your back on her for one minute once she's walking."

He handed Ron the bight orange mug and took a sip of his own tea. "I won't even ask about whether you have any biscuits. they're bound to be covered in fluff if you do."

Ron took the mug, smiling in thanks. "Nah, no biscuits." He patted his stomach. "Got to watch my waistline, you know," he teased.

Ron glanced around his quarters. "You... haven't seen Long have you?" He sighed. "Stupid ferret. Probably playing with my socks."

Charlie perched on the edge of the table and smirked. "You watching your waistline for anyone in particular or just for Long?"

He looked round and spotted Long poking his nose out of a box marked bathroom.

"Alas, he's only interested in me for my socks," Ron said with a feigned sigh, leaning against the worktop.

A slight blush appeared on his cheeks, though. "Well," he said after a moment. "There is this one guy. I was at school with him. Met him in the hotel bar a few weeks ago and he was... kind of forward." Ron wrinkled his nose. "I think I said I'd go out with him."

Charlie nearly choked on his tea. "Sorry I didn't mean that the way it sounded. Umm." Charlie paused wondering how to put it delicately. He finally thought fuck it

"Are you going to go for or are you too chicken shit to ?"

Zach had heard that Ron was moving in and decided to welcome him. He knocked on the door, feeling a bit nervous. This is ridiculous! I've been with countless people over the years. I can't keep feeling like a first year with my first crush around him! Get yourself together, Smith!

Shaking his head to clear it, he called out, "Ron, are you here? Its Zach. I was wondering if you could use some help or anything?"

Hearing the knock, Ron glanced over to the door. When he realised that it was Zach, the colour crept back onto his cheeks and he shot Charlie a dark look in case his brother dared to say anything. He hadn't mentioned Zach's name, but Charlie was a smart one.

"Oh. Er, hi, Zach. Nice to see you again. I was just taking a break, actually." He aimed for a blase shrug, but didn't quite achieve it. "Come in, though." Ron gave a nod towards Charlie. "This is my brother, Charlie."

Zach smiled as he entered the room. "Nice to meet you, Charlie. Is it alright for me to join you both? I could always come back another time."

"Congratulations on getting the groundskeeper job, Ron. I'd like to interview you, of course. I'll be sticking around after the PR job starts to wind down. I'll be the new Arithmancy teacher. I'm sorry that we didn't get to have our date yet, Ron. I've been looking forward to it."

He saw Ron's ferret peaking out from behind the sofa. "You have a ferret, too? Mine is named Lance."

"Er, no, that's no problem." Ron was sure that he was blushing and inwardly cursed his complexion.

"We'll have to sort that, um, date out at some point," Ron agreed with a short nod. So Zach was going to be teaching at Hogwarts, too? That could be... interesting.

He glanced over at Long. "You have a ferret?" he asked. "That's kind of, er, coincidental. His name's Long."

Zach smiled as he noticed Ron's blush. It made him feel a bit better to know that Ron was nervous about the date too. "I'd really like that. I'm all moved in already and I'll be able to clear time whenever is convenient for you, Ron."

His shoulder brushed Ron's as he went over by Long and held his hand out so that the ferret could sniff him. "Lance has been my traveling companion for the past several years. I got him a bit after we graduated from Hogwarts."
