"AWHHH", yelled both Fred and Ember stumbling backwards into each opposite ends of the shower walls.

Fred smacked his hands down to cover his private area, "What are you doing here?"

Ember flipped her long wet hair to her front to cover her chest calmly, "What am I doing here? What are you doing here?"

Fred looked around the shower as if hoping to see Katie around waiting for him. He was at a loss for words, speechless you could say.

Ember rolled her eyes and turned her back to him and let the water fall down on her face.

Fred quickly looked to the ceiling trying not to let his gaze fall upon Ember's back side. Ember turned her head to look at him, "Why are you still in here?", she asked snappishly.

Fred let go of himself and threw his hand up splashing bits of water across the walls, "I could ask you the same thing Blackwood"

Ember twirled around, "Don't call me that"

Fred looked taken aback, "But . . . that's what I always call you"

Ember smiled sarcastically, "You're just going to act like that day out in the storm never happened?"

Fred looked away and gulped, "I'm not acting like it never happened Blackwood"

"I said not to call me that!"

"Then what do you want me to call you then, hmm!?", he shouted now looking angry.

Ember swirled around and turned off the water then ripped the curtains open.

Fred grabbed a near by towel and wrapped it around his waist, "I asked you a question"

Ember felt the burning sensation to cry, rise to her throat. She refused to let any more tears fall for Fred Weasley. She pushed away the urge to cry and hurriedly dressed herself and walked past him and out the bathroom door.

Fred pulled on his jeans, grabbed his shirt and ran out the door after her. He turned the corner to go to Charlie's room but bumped into Katie who was aiming to walk into the bathroom.

"Did she just come out of the-Wait. Why the hell do you both have wet hair??", asked Katie crossing her arms.

Fred shook his head, "Not what it looks like. Go take a shower. I have to do something"

Katie grabbed his arm as he brushed past her, "To talk to her? Her, who you just showered with?"

Fred grabbed the back of his head in frustration trying to get to Ember, "Katie, I said it's not what it looks like. Please let me go do this"

She grasped his arm tighter, "Let you go what? Fuck her?"

Fred ripped his arm out of her grip, "For fuck sakes Katie! Let me breathe!"

Katie flared her nostrils as she watched him walk into Charlie's bedroom and slam the door behind him.

Ember jumped at the sudden sound of the door slamming shut.

"So you're ignoring me now!?", shouted Fred.

Ember spun around, "Oh, I'm the one ignoring you??"
