Dating Susan Bones

Chapter Text

Room of Requirement, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Scotland

10th October 1995

Harry Potter was doing a rare thing in his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he was smiling! He had started the DA session when he saw a very good looking redhead. The redhead that had popped up in his sights was Susan Bones, the niece of the Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, Amelia Bones.

Harry remembered the first time that he had seen the young lady who had set his stomach afloat and that was the meeting on the first Hogsmeade visit of the year, the one that he found members for the DA.

It was the only thing that, in reality, he could thank Hermione Granger for. Without the actions that the bushy haired bookworm for, Harry knew that he probably would have had to end up settling for the bookworm, or worse Ginny Weasley, his best friend's sister, a girl who he knew was out of bounds for the pure fact that she looked a dead ringer for his mother, Lily Potter.

Harry still could not get over the fact that, during the previous night's game of Truth or Dare that the Fifth-Year Gryffindor boys played, Dean Thomas had got his friend drunk on Firewhiskey that the Weasley Twins had smuggled in via the secret passages from Honeydukes.

To top it all off, Seamus Finnegan, another of the Gryffindor boys, who was equally as drunk AS Ron, dared the redhead to go down to the Slytherin Common Room, with the dare being to kiss the Slytherin Ice Princess, Daphne Greengrass. Ron returned, with his gentlemanly parts frozen, and a visit to Madam Pomfrey being required, resulting him in missing the first DA session!

Harry walked around the Room of Requirements keeping one eye on everyone, with the other one on Susan Bones. Eventually it was time to wind the DA Meeting up and so Harry watched everyone leave the room.

Susan noticed Harry was going to hold her back and she turned to her best friend, Hannah Abbot. "Wait for me in the Common Room Hannah, I think Harry needs to speak to me."

"Why Susan? Is it so you can give Mr Potter there a kiss?" the blonde-haired girl asked her friend. "I know you fancy him and that you want to snog his socks off!

"Hannah Abbott! Please don't put your nose into things that don't concern you!" Susan said, trying to hide a smile. "It is very unbecoming of a lady!"

"Oh Bones!" Hannah said in a sing song voice, smiling at how she was trying to wind her friend up, "Just make sure that his Snake is very well protected!"

"Behave yourself Abbott or I will let Justin know about how you were staring at his arse throughout Herbology," the redhead countered.

"You wouldn't dare!"

"I would if it stopped you from getting on my back about my feelings for Harry!" Susan said, going as red as her hair. Hannah suddenly left the Room of Requirements without her friend knowing. Suddenly she heard footsteps approach her.

"Hello Susan." A voice came from behind her. Susan turned to see that it was the leader of Dumbledore's Army himself, Harry Potter.

Harry approached the girl, but he felt funny during the DA session, only when he was around Susan. He knew he had to say something to her, lest he be a fool to himself.

"Hello Susan" Harry said, smiling. He saw Susan turn around, considering his eyes. 'Why do women always do that, consider my eyes as if they wanted me?' Thinking of the first thing that he could say, he decided to complement her. "You did very good tonight Susan, better than people like Hermione or the Chasers."

"Thanks Harry. My Aunt Amelia taught me a little bit, as she is head of the DMLE, as you know. That means that she oversees the Aurors and Hit Wizards." Susan said, returning Harry's smile. "She wanted me to be able to protect myself in case You-Know-Who is back."

"So…so she believes me?" Harry asked, hoping what he was saying was true.

"She does." Susan confirmed "She also taught me things so I could look after the man I have feelings for."

"Who is it Susan?" Harry asked, the knot in his chest tightening. Closing her eyes, Susan sighed.

"You see Harry, he has these emerald eyes which I find really, really cute," she said, going red at the sight of seeing her crush. "He also has hair which is really messy, yet extremely windswept, like he had just come out of a dive hunting for a Snitch. I just really-"

Susan suddenly stopped because she felt Harry melt his lips into hers, his one hand on her waist, the other cupping her face. Feeling his tongue move across her lips, she opened up, her tongue forming a duel for dominance. Harry let his eyes open when suddenly he observed the name Delores Umbridge appear nearby on the Marauders Map which he had open.

Straightening their uniform, they left the Room of Requirement, Harry clearing the map so Umbridge would not be aware of what it was, heading in separate directions to their common rooms.

Heading to Gryffindor Tower, Harry bumped into Umbridge. "Well…well…well," Umbridge said in her sickly-sweet voice, smiling, "What are you doing out of your Common Room at this time of night Mr Potter?"

Delores Umbridge was smiling. She had just received word from a Slytherin student, Pansy Parkinson, that there would be a meeting of students on the Seventh-Floor corridor, a meeting that would be in contravention of Educational Decree number 24, a decree made legal by her dear Minister, Cornelius Fudge. The decree was created to disband all student organisations, societies, teams, groups and clubs.

The decree was enacted following information she had been given by Willy Widdershins, a conman and vandal who worked often with Mundungus Fletcher, as part of a Plea Bargain on charges of Muggle baiting, charges laid by Amelia Bones and Arthur Weasley.

Leaving her office next to the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, she headed up to the Seventh Floor where she bumped into the bane of her dear Cornelius's life, Harry Potter.

Heading to Gryffindor Tower, Harry bumped into Umbridge. "Well…well…well," Umbridge said in her sickly-sweet voice, smiling, "What are you doing out of your Common Room at this time of night Mr Potter?"

Harry looked at the pink cardigan wearing toad and smiled. "Professor Umbridge, I was heading to Gryffindor Tower, having been to see my girlfriend to inspect a broom closet." He said, channelling what his godfather would say to a professor.

"Detention Potter for being out after curfew." Umbridge said, a toad like grin appearing on her face.

Umbridge watched the raven-haired teen walk away and frowned. 'Potter is exactly like his father was when he was a Hit Wizard, lying to his superiors. Merlin help us if he ever becomes one! I must see Cornelius and let him know what Potter was up to!' the Defence Professor thought as she watched the teen away, all ideas of a bust against an illegal club completely out of her mind.

"So, what was it like Bones?" Hannah asked her friend. "Did you get to snog Potter?"

"Damn girl, you snogged Harry Potter!" Megan Jones, one of their fellow Fifth Years said, smiling. "Susan Bones, you are a lucky bitch!"

"Come on Bones, give us details girl!" Sophie Roper, another of their year mates said in mock scandal. "Is his kissing style any good?"

"Only you would ask when you have snogged half of our year!" Megan said, trying to reel her friend back in. "I could list it easily as you've snogged Boot, Malfoy, Goldstein, Zabini, Nott, Goyle, Crabbe-"

"Ok! Anyway, you can hardly talk Jones! Don't forget you tried to snog Longbottom when he had that one dance with you at the Yule Ball!" Sophie said, "And then scarpered when Ginny Weasley acted like a dragon at you!"

"What! Longbottom and Weasley!" Megan Said. "She has to have him on Love Potions!"

"Anyway, by the look on Susan's face, she probably came over the bedtime kiss that she gave Harry Potter!" Hannah said, smiling as her friend went red. The girls continued chatting throughout the night, mainly spending the time discussing Harry Potter, but little did they expect their friend want more of Harry Potter!
