Cry Baby
Who: Lavender, Rosie and Cho
What: Trying to calm a Weasley temper
Where: The house
Status: Complete

No mother liked it when her child was crying, and Lavender was no exception. With Rosie bawling in her arms, though, Lavender was feeling close to tears herself. She'd woken up and started crying immediately, not even stopping when Lavender picked her up for her usual post-sleep cuddle. Lavender had fed her and her nappy was clean, but nothing seemed to stop her crying.

Lavender stroked her back, jigging her gently as she walked around the living room. "Come on, Baby Girl. It's okay. Mummy's got you. You can stop crying now." She glanced up at the clock, Rosie kicking her ribs; it had been nearly an hour.

Cho had been standing outside the door when she heard the crying and hesistated before knocking.

Finally she knocked and waited for the door to opem. She saw Lavender with a wailing Roise and asked "Have I come at a bad time?"

"I wish you could tell me what's wrong, Baby Girl. Mummy would do anything to make it better if she could."

Lavender turned to see Cho, the house having apparently let her in. "Oh, Cho," she breath above Rosie's sobs. "She won't stop crying."

Cho put her bag down and put hte flowers down on the side table. She paused before reaching out her arms. "May I try?"

Lavender nodded and Cho took Rosie into her arms. She patted Rosie's back and then ran her finegers over her stomach. Cho asked "Has she been eating all right?" She peered into Rosie's ears.

"She's been fine." Lavender pushed her hair behind her ear. "Eating plenty. She just... woke up and started crying and she hasn't stopped." She sniffed. "It's been about an hour!"

Lavender gently rubbed her back.

Cho kissed the side of Rosie's head and gently soothed her. "It could just be a stomach virus. Something that wouldn't necessarily affect you or Charlie might upset her tummy."

She screwed up her face trying to think what Auntie Hea would recommend. "Antibotics and she should be fine in a couple of days. But you might want to get a second opinion."

Cho laughed. "Well it sounds like you need a break. Wedding planning makes or breaks a relationship."

She looked at Rosie, who seemed to have finally dozed off. "Well if you ever need a break or a grown up to talk to, you know you can just Floo me."

Biting her lip, Lavender slipped from the sofa onto her knees, gently placing Rosie in the bassinet. Rosie stirred slightly and Lavender held her breath, hoping that there wouldn't be another bout of crying. Luckily, Rosie settled down, the sucking of her dummy becoming slower as she slept.

She nodded, sitting down again and taking another biscuit. "I will," she said. "Once the wedding is out of the way, I hope everything's going to settle down." Lavender pulled a face. "God, that sounds cynical, doesn't it? 'When the wedding's out of the way'." She sipped her tea, sighing. "I'm just a bit tired at the moment."

Cho raised an eyebrow. "And so you should be. One small baby, a wedding to plan and moving house. It's enough to drive anyone to tears."

She looked round. "Where is Charlie? IS he back in Romania again?"

Lavender shook her head. "No, but I think he's going tomorrow for a couple of days." She half-closed her eyes, trying to remember what Charlie said he was doing today. "I think he's at the reserve in Wales."

She put her feet up, trying to get more comfortable on the sofa. Swallowing a mouthful of biscuit, Lavender smiled. "I kind of wish that he'd been here when she woke up crying, though."

Cho made a sympathetic noise. "Are you back at work yet or is it just Charlie? It sounds like he's at work every hour in the day."

She finished her tea and then took another biscuit.

"For Charlie's sake, I won't ask whether it was him." Cho struggled to keep a stariaght face.

"Although from what the rumour mills tell me you went out with, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you had to fake it on occasion."

She smirked. "Although there was a reason why everyone kept going to the loos on the fourth floor despite it being miles from everywhere. Some of the charms on the walls were really useful"

"Yes, I have to admit there were a few... dubious choices in my past." She looked at her engagement ring. "Charlie more than makes up for that, though."

She nodded in agreement. "Those charms were very useful. I don't think I've ever taken Charlie up there, though."

Cho winced. "Don't. It'll scare the poor boy. All the girls in Ravenclaw knew not to mention it to the boys as it wasn't worth the hassle."

She then laughed. "I think everyone has to kiss a few toads before they find the right person. I know I have."

Lavender giggled. "And are you kissing a toad at the moment." She grinned. "Come on, I have to ask. I won't tell Charlie you're shagging his brother, promise."

She picked up a biscuit, breaking it in half. "How long? Who made the first move... all that stuff." Lavender pouted. "I'm going to be an old married woman soon - I need gossip."

Cho blushed. "I don't think he's a toad." She picked up a biscut and played with it for a moment.

"Umm, it started a while back actually. I think. He helped me redo the Ravenclaw common room and that was nice." She laughed. "He promised to Owl me but never did and then I bumped into him in Hektate's Girdle and we went out to dinner and clubbing."

She took a mouthful of biscuit and grinned. "He wears the most horrendus pants." Cho wrinkled her nose and shuddered at the memory at the bright orange Cannons pair. "He said that Charlie gave them to him as a gag gift but I took him shopping and got him some new ones."

She grinned. "Did you know that him and george have now got their Potions Mastery and he's going to be teach Herbology when Hogwarts reopens?"
