Why it was just getting good!

Remington gasped and covered her smile when he told her about what Uncle Riley had done. "Hey, don't cover your smile you have a great one. It lights up your whole face." It was true she was cute normally, but DJ really loved her smile. It wasn't something he had been able to get into his sketch of her from Defense, but maybe one day he'd be brave enough to show her and ask if he could draw her face.

When Remington pushed the cookies to him, he popped the top off and grabbed just one. He wasn't greedy, and they weren't for him but for her. Plus the Draco knew he would never have homemade cookies to share with his housemate. He replaced the top and took a bite of the snickerdoodle. "These are amazing. You come from a magical family?" he asked. There was only one way these cookies were warm in Tupperware.

Remington explained that her dad taught sex ed and he nodded. That was a pretty cool job to DJ. After all not having babies while a kid was probably the best thing for them. "I don't know if your Dad and my Uncle would actually get along. Your dad seems genuinely concerned about kids. My Uncle has a flair for the dramatic and likes teasing my parents that they had been too young." It wasn't a family secret that DJ had been a major accident. "Both of them are military, and while they were still training for positions, they got pregnant. In fact, they weren't even dating anymore when Mom found out she was pregnant." DJ shrugged as he finished off his cookie.

He began to flip through his notebook again he wasn't really looking at the pages but if she chose to look down Remington would see a side profile portrait of herself at that moment. DJ not noticing smiled at her. "Thanks for the cookie. It was fantastic."

      • I'm not the best at toning things down anyway - Remington, Tue Dec 18 16:02
        Was it possible to blush so much that it started at the top of your head and went all the way to her toes? Her entire body definitely felt warm. And tingly. Absolutely tingly. Her hands lightly fell... more

          DJ smiled widely as Remington blushed even more. Damn, he would have to compliment her more often if that's how she was going to react. She was super cute when she blushed. He made a mental note to... more

            “My dad knows about magic,” she clarified. “He’s great about it. Has plenty of opinions - wants to know where the magical world hides during mass genocide, that kind of thing - but overall he’s... more

              The fourth-year thought it was pretty cool that Remington's dad knew about magic. DJ had also wondered why the magical world hid during mass genocides when he was younger. He had never found great... more

                  Remington's face lit up at the offer of the book. "Great!" DJ said and charmed his hand to say 'Don't forget book for Remington' that would burn the next morning. Usually, DJ would see Remy in class, ... more

                    • Hmm - DJ, Tue Jan 1 11:55
                      Remington hadn’t really responded to his flirting which was a conundrum to DJ. Usually, girls, he did flirt with teased right back. Was Remington not interested in him? He thought of the girls at... more

                        It was becoming quite clear that Remington didn’t know what to do with flirting, which was a little weird. If she looked at it from a different angle, flirting was kind of like debating. You took a... more

                          Remington laughed, and DJ couldn’t help smile wider. Her laugh was cute, and it made her whole face brighten. If DJ wasn’t careful, he could see himself falling in love with Remington. He knew that... more
