Ok so this is like over a month late but RL was just getting in the way. Hope you guys enjoy this!

This was it. It was now or never. Taking a deep breath the French champion steeled her resolve and made her way to the court yard where the second Hogwarts champion was seated with his friends. Seeing the drooling males and the suspicious females almost caused Fleur to lose her nerve. However, seeing the open and honest look on Harry's face helped her to go through with her plan.
"'Arry could I speak to you alone for a minute?" Fleur spoke looking calm and composed on the outside, showing none of her nervousness. His honest face morphed into confusion but he nodded none the less probably thinking it had something to do with the tournament.
Finding an empty corridor Fleur stopped and turned to face Harry.
"I would completely understand if you say no but I had to at least try." Fleur started off showing some of her emotions on her face. Poor Harry looked even more confused and opened his mouth to say something but Fleur stopped him by holding up a hand.
"No let me say this. Harry you are a very kind person and I wouldreallylikeitifyouwouldescortmetotheball." She finished in a rush.
"Um…I'm sorry did you ask me if I would escort you to the ball? As in the Yule Ball?" Harry looked really confused at this point and it didn't help when Fleur nodded her head vigorously.
"Yes Harry I would. You see me as a person and not a veela and I have a lot of respect for you for it. I know that I haven't been entirely respectful to you throughout the tournament but I would really like to go to the ball with you….if you haven't already found a date." Fleur knew it was a long shot to think he would say yes in the first place but it hadn't occurred to her that he might have a date already until this very minute. Fleur blushed and looked down at her feet. Harry's shoes appeared in her line of vision and Fleur hunched her shoulders ready for rejection.
"Fleur, I would love to go to the ball with you."
Fleur's head shot up so fast that she was sure she heard it crack. But that didn't matter right now. What mattered was that Harry Potter had said yes! Seeing the slight smile on Harry's face Fleur couldn't resist and reached out to hug him.
"Thank you!" She was so happy that she was glowing and she didn't care who saw it. Harry's arms came up hesitantly around her and it just made the French witch squeeze him tighter when his hands didn't even try to touch her bum.
Pulling back Fleur pressed a light kiss to his cheek before pulling away completely.
"Well I'll meet you outside the Great Hall at 8 then?" She said grinning.
"Sounds good." Harry responded with a smile. Just as she started to turn away Harry called out to her.
"Oh, and Fleur? You should come sit with us in the Great Hall for dinner. I'll make sure Ron behaves himself but to be honest not even a pretty French witch can distract him from his love of food." He finished with a smirk. Fleur just nodded not trusting herself to speak and grinning even wider. This had gone even better that she expected. Hopefully this would be a start of a lovely if slightly unconventional relationship.
Hope you liked it Greye! Sorry it took so long! I just love the idea of a shy fleur! Well this is the end I know that I promised 11 oneshots but as I said RL is just getting in the way. I finished with Harry/Fleur because I know it's Greye's favorite!
Thanks for reading!
