The waltzes and other traditional dances played for just over an hour, which was plenty of time for anyone who enjoyed that sort of thing (or wanted to find out whether they did) to have a spin or two around the dancefloor. They had also announced the last three dances of this type, to ensure that no one who had been desperately trying to pluck up the courage missed their chance. Now though, it was time to turn the jukebox over to the winning house.

"Attention please," Professor Skies called, her voice magically amplified for the purpose, "It is time for us to announce the winners of the house cup. The members of the winning house will each receive a token for the jukebox. You have the remainder of the evening to use it." She had ensured that the supplier knew this was for a school event and so, whilst its supply of both magical and Muggle music was extensive, anything truly filthy had been excluded, and any swear words had been edited out. The jukebox would cue up the songs in the order they were selected and, if it ran out of picks from the students, would revert to playing at random. It was likely to result in an eclectic selection, especially if there were students who preferred classical as there was nothing to say they couldn't select those pieces, but hopefully it would be fun.

"And so, without futher ado, this year's winners are... Teppenpaw. Congratulations. Enjoy your reward," she tapped her wand against a green velvet bag and, with a shower of yellow and maroon sparks, silver tokens flew out, making their ways to the members of the winning house.

That done, she made her way over to Nathan.

"Congratulations again," she smiled at him. "Hopefully this is a nice way to end the year. Though, frankly, the year ending is good enough for me."

      The ball was going reasonably well. No prefects had danced with the scenery. Nobody had spiked the punch. He hadn’t seen any tears so far, and if any teenagers snuck out into the gardens they had... more
