Neville lowered his glass and looked from Dean to Ron and then back to Dean, "But...but you moved in with Seamus and the way you two were talking....oh Merlin, have I gone and put my foot in it! I thought...I thought..," and Neville felt the color rising in his face, "I thought you liked men Dean," and he braced himself, "Oh Merlin! I'm sorry! You can have all the girls, honestly," he said, as he tried to cover up his mistake by taking a long drink from his glass.
Neville was growing mortified, and he didn't stop drinking until his glass was empty and he put it down on the bar. He wiped his mouth with his sleeve and waved to the bartender, "More drinks, so if I make an ass of myself I can blame the booze," and he tried not to look at Dean, "I'm not going to get fired. Severus is my new mate," he said, feeling the beer almost right away.
