Who: Seamus Finnigan, Parvati Patil
What: Seamus alllllmost missed celebrating Parvati's birthday. What's she going to do with such a naughty boyfriend?
When: BACKDATED Wednesday, March 23, 1998 (evening)
Where: Gryffindor Common Room and then one of the courtyards.
Rating: PG to start
Seamus paced nervously in front of the common room fireplace, kicking himself mentally for his mistake. He kept telling himself that it wasn't so much a mistake as it was a lack of having the proper information to start with - he hadn't known that today was Parvati and Padma's birthday until Lav had mentioned it to him at lunch. Well. Hissed it at him when Parvati had gone to speak to Padma at the Ravenclaw table was more like it. How was he to know? Before they'd been dating, he'd never really known when her birthday was, and she hadn't made any fuss about anything at all this morning.
But he still felt like a bad boyfriend. He should have known...he should have at some point asked when her birthday was so it wouldn't have snuck up on him like this. He paced slightly faster as he chewed on his thumbnail. What if she were really hacked off with him? What if she wanted to chuck him? The rational part of his brain knew that he was overreacting, but he was having trouble listening to it right now. He could only hope that the plan he'd concocted could salvage things. He continued to pace until he heard the portrait hole opening, his head turning towards the sound, simultaneously hoping and fearing it might be her.
