Prompt - Elegant
Luna thrills as Ginny grabs her hand and pulls her into the ballroom, face alight with excitement. A little anxiety squeezes her heart, but it's so late now that the dance floor is almost empty and Flitwick pretends not to see her. She doesn't miss the small wink he throws her though.
"I love this song," Ginny says, wrapping her arms around Luna's neck. Luna had a growth spurt this term and it feels natural to wrap her arms around Ginny's waist and smile down at her. They sway on the spot, barely moving, but none of the other couples are dancing properly either anymore so nobody pays them any mind.
"Was it wonderful?" Luna asks, looking wistfully at the streamers now straggling along the floor and the candles almost burnt out.
"Yes, but it would have been better if you'd been here. Neville kept stepping on my feet."
Luna carefully spins them around, glancing down to check she's not doing the same. She looks up again at the sound of a trilling laugh. Fleur Delacour is dancing with Rodger Davies in the middle of the floor, laughing delightedly at something he's said. Luna's not sure what it could be, since Rodger looks like he's been hit in the head by a Bludger and not up to joking. Fleur is radiant, her cheeks flushed and her elegant robes swirling around her ankles.
"Could she be more obvious?" Ginny says, not bothering to keep her voice down, but Luna doesn't miss the way Ginny's eyes flick over Fleur before looking away.
"I don't think she's so bad," Luna says. "It was smart the way she got past that dragon."
"Not you too," Ginny says, screwing up her face.
Luna shrugs and pulls her closer. "She's pretty, but so are you."
Ginny rolls her eyes, but she's smiling. "She might be pretty," she concedes, "but she's still obvious."
"I don't think she really likes him at all," Luna says, sneaking another glance at the couple. "I think she'd like someone with a bit more fire."
