SPOILERS FOR SAMMY SO BEWARE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!
Q u Q Such a babu<3 I miss this cutie patootie<3
“Well if you don’t believe me, why don’t you come and see it for yourself?”
That one sentence was all it took to get Lucky start planning her visit to see Smiles and his unbelievable home. She was confident that he must have found that picture somewhere and just sent it to her to get a good laugh at her. She was pretty gullible after all. The planning was surprisingly simply and Smiles had insured her on directions how to get to his place and such.
Her parents were both enthusiastic about her visiting a friend but a bit nervous at the mention said friend was a guy. Let alone the male friend she had a tendency of breaking rules with it seemed. Smiles was a ‘bad’ influence, but his sort of kindness out weighed the bad in Lucky’s book. Oats seemed to be looking forward to the trip too, mostly because it meant that he would be able to relax and not have to deliver so many letters over to Smiles. Which reminded her, She wanted to ask Smiles if he had kept in touch with any of the others. Lucky had sent several letters to her friends but she had not received many back. Perhaps they were all just busy? She shook her head, it was pointless to worry about it right now when she had no answers.
It took a while but Lucky managed to make it to their meeting location and there was Smiles. Familiar tall built body, freckled face, braids in hair, and that signature smile. Lucky couldn’t help but smile though her heart was racing with anticipation. It was strange to see him outside of their school, She wondered what differences there would be from the Smiles at school to the Smiles at home would be.
“Good to see you, Smiles. Ahm…This is… some place you got.”
It was amazing actually. Just as shown in the picture. She was still in disbelief that this was where Smiles lived. Seriously…how does one live in a place like this? Oh…right…Magic. Smiles and his family was magical, unlike Lucky’s small muggle family.
Smiles was not left waiting long as with a slight poof Lucky appeared before him. He beamed down at her, instantly crossing the space between them and enveloping her in a hug that lifted her feet a few inches off the ground.
“Good ta see you too, lass!” he said, putting her down and taking her bags in hand. “Some place, hah? What’d I tell ya? Just like the snap I sent ya!” Her reaction was just as he’d hoped it would be. Even wizarding families were surprised at the McVine house. Technically, most of the area belonged to Smiles’ family or extended family. A little ways from the beach they stood at was his mother herb garden, and not a mile over the nearest hill was Smiles’ grandparents house, and his aunts and uncles close to that. Of all of them, Smiles’ house was still by far the most unique.
Putting Lucky’s bags in the boat, Smiles held the little craft steady against the beach and gestured for Lucky to climb in.
“The portkey give you any trouble?” he asked. “Me, I always get sick after travelling by portkey.”
“Y-yeah! I was positive you were pulling my leg when you sent me the …er, ‘snap’.” Lucky should use this time here to learn more about Smiles and his family. Perhaps she would learn something of use? Well either way, this was an experience new to her.
Lucky shook her head at the question about portkey, “No, I’m fine. I mean, It was a bit startling, and I’m never going to get used to it..But I feel fine.” Shrugs and smiles at the small mention of Smiles feeling sick after traveling by portkey, “I’m sure you’re not the only one…Oh!”
The smaller girl looked around for a moment and whispered, “Hey… do you’re parents know about my parents being..you know….?” Lucky always felt a bit worried meeting Slytherins, but it was another to meet the parents of one to Lucky, she felt like she had something to prove? Well, it didn’t matter right? Smiles and Lucky were ‘friends’ as odd as it was to say. Not sure when it became normal to say Smiles was a friend, but sometime back at school it just did.
