Harry Potter Post 27

 “What’s that?” asked Harry.“It’s from Lavender,” said Ron, sounding revolted. “She can’t honestly think I’d wear . . .”
Harry looked more closely and let out a shout of laughter. Dangling from the chain in large gold letters were the words: My Sweetheart
“Nice,” he said. “Classy. You should definitely wear it in front of Fred and George.”
“If you tell them,” said Ron, shoving the necklace out of sight under his pillow, “I — I — I’ll —”
“Stutter at me?” said Harry, grinning. “Come on, would I?”
“How could she think I’d like something like that, though?” Ron demanded of thin air, looking rather shocked.
“Well, think back,” said Harry. “Have you ever let it slip that you’d like to go out in public with the words ‘My Sweetheart’ round your neck?”
“Well . . . we don’t really talk much,” said Ron. “It’s mainly . . .”
“Snogging,” said Harry.
“Well, yeah,” said Ron.
