Cedric had never stuttered before in his life. At least, he didn't think he ever had. And he was also quite proud of his prowess where the opposite sex was concerned. This was never something that had been a problem for him. Ever. So what was the problem now?
"I said," repeated Fleur, in her sweetest voice, "would you like to go to ze ball wiz me?" She tossed her hair back alluringly.
Still, he tried to put a few words together to form a coherent statement. It seemed unlikely, given the current condition of his brain. If she hadn't taken him by suprise in the corridor on his way to Charms, he was sure he would have been bettter prepared.
"Cho," he mananged, weakly.
Fleur frowned. Cedric felt himself overwhelmingly compulsed to make her smile again. He fought the urge.
"Zat pretty girl wiz ze dark hair?" Her features formed a pout.
Cedric knew very well what she was trying to do, and he encouraged himself to resist. Still, it was quite difficult...
He did his best to look anywhere but at her.
"Yes," he responded. It was a bit easier now. "I've already asked Cho, and she has agreed to go. So, I'm sorry, but..."
But Fleur had already began to stomp away, obviously angry about finishing in second place. A few of the boys in the corridor stopped to watch her pass, mouths agape.
Even though she was stunningly beautiful, Cedric decided that he was better off without such an arrogant woman on his hands.
Still, he thought with a smile, you had to respect a girl who could make even Cedric Diggory stutter.
