"You really think he's going to ask me to be his girlfriend", Ember whispered in shock.

"Well duh, he's so in love with you and plus didn't you kind of tell him too?", said Ginny.

"I didn't tell him to. I just kind of hinted that I wouldn't be doing anything with him until he did. And you really think he's in love with me?"

Ginny rolled her eyes, "Are you kidding?? Have you seen the way he looks at you Ember? I've never seen any one of my brothers look at a girl like that"

Ember blushed, "And to think we've both been in love with each other this entire time and never said anything"

"Tell me about it", Ginny said plopping back onto the sofa.

Ember started getting anxious, "So erm what exactly did Fred say that made you guys think he was going to ask me out?"

Ginny looked over at Hermione who already had her giant book open. "I don't think we should tell you that"

"What? Why not? You guys are my best friends. I have to be ready for what ever it is", said Ember nervously.

Hermione looked up from her book, "Yeah even if you knew partly what we know, there's no way to get ready for that Emberlynn. And we only heard a little part of their big scheme"

Ember's heart started to race. She knew that the twins go all out for practically everything they do—but now that it's involving her she's getting a bit terrified.

"Guys, at least give me a hint so I know what to expect, please?", Emberlynn pleaded.

The two girls looked at each other then looked at Ember, "No"

*****

All night the three girls stayed in the common room studying for O.W.L.S. and waiting up to see if any of the boys were going to come up from where ever they were.

But they never did.

The girls ended up going up to bed around 11pm since Hermione refused to stay up any longer.

Emberlynn laid in her bed not being able to fall asleep. She was so excited and nervous at the same time. Her mind raced with thoughts and her stomach fluttered with millions of happy and scared butterflies.

'What if they're still downstairs in the boys bathroom? I could sneak down and listen to what they're saying. But I shouldn't. But it's about me'

Emberlynn propped herself up on her elbows and squinted her eyes to get a read on the clock on the wall.

She read 2:14

Her decision was already made.

She slipped on some sweats that were hanging on the side of her bed and slid her feet into her fluffy red slippers.

She began to tiptoe down the stairs.

"Ive never been more tired in my life", a voice said from downstairs.

Ember stopped, she recognized that voice, it was Neville's. She kept creeping down the stairs.

"You're telling me, I did most of the work!", another voice came.

Ember stopped again, that was obviously Ron. She kept moving—trying to get as close as possible.

"Oi will you gits shut up, we did it for Emberlynn", a rather angry voice responded.

Emberlynn froze. She leaned up against the stone wall surrounded by the stairs. That was definitely George.

"Hey before everyone goes up to sleep, I just wanted to thank you guys. I couldn't have made this plan without everyone's input and creative ideas. I'm absolutely certain that Blackwood will love every bit of it!"
