Chocolate and Raspberry

"Denny!" a silvery-blond hair sixteen-year-old girl called as she ran to meet a handsome sixteen-year-old boy. Dennis Creevey turned around and smiled as he saw his girlfriend Gabrielle Delacoure running to meet him. He scooped her up in his arms and twirled her around. He then set her down and kissed her forehead sweetly.

"Oh Gabs, I've missed you," he told her, wrapping her up in a tight hug.

"Me too Denny. Me too," she said, resting her head on his chest.

"Where's you mother?" he asked her.

"Maman has to stay with Grandmere because she iz sick," she told him, and he recognized the light French accent she still had. He smiled. "So, who brought you here to Diagon Alley?" he asked as they walked hand in hand down the narrow, busy streets to Florean Fortescue's Ice-Cream Parlor.

"Fleur did. She was meeting Oliver here anyway," she said, looking up into his warm hazel eyes.

"Come on, let's go and get some ice-cream, shall we?" It was more a statement than a question, as Denny knew how much Gabby loved ice cream.

"Let's," she answered, smiling.

They walked to the counter (making many men's heads turn as Gabby walked by) and were greeted by Florean. "What will you two be having today?" he asked jovially.

"Raspberry for the pretty lady here and chocolate for me please," Dennis asked.

"In one cup or two?" the ice-cream vendor asked.

"One," Gabby said, looking at Denny rather than at Florean.

"Very well," Fortescue exclaimed. "It'll be right up!"

The two very in love teenagers sat down at a table near the window. Gabrielle could see her sister walking hand in hand with Oliver Wood, the Keeper for Puddlemere United. Before they could utter even a word, Florean had brought their ice cream over.

"To us," Denny said, banging his spoon with Gabby's.

"Yes, to us," she answered, smiling up at her loving boyfriend. She ate a bite of the raspberry part of the sundae and instantly broke out into a huge grin. It was her favorite and she couldn't believe that Denny had remembered. Even Fleur, whom she was very close too, didn't remember. Dennis, meanwhile, wasn't eating.

"Anything wrong Denny?" Gabrielle asked, worriedly.

"Just thinking" he answered, snapping back down to earth.

"About,' she inquired.

"This," and he leaned over the table and planted a kiss down on her lips. She responded, placing her arms around his neck and kissing him forcefully. The moment seemed to last forever and neither of them wanted it to end. Reluctantly, Denny ended it, thirsty for oxygen. As they pulled apart, Gabby laughed.

"What's so funny, Gabs?" he asked his girlfriend.

"You've got chocolate and raspberry ice cream all over your chin!" she sputtered. "You must have trailed your chin in the sundae when you leaned over!" she squealed, guffawing louder.

"You and me, Gabs. Chocolate and Raspberry forever," Denny said, kissing Gabby again.
