dani
Drop everything now Meet me in the pouring rain Kiss me on the sidewalk Take away the pain 'Cause I see, sparks fly, whenever you smile
Daniela couldn’t believe she was back at Hogwarts. When she’d left at the end of July, she hadn’t yet heard about the SPELLCRAFT, and hadn’t been aware that she’d be back in just a few months. If she had, would that have changed how she’d left things at the end of Quidditch camp? Definitely not. But it definitely made her anxious to see Ben Clarke again.

The last time she had seen him had been the last day of camp, on the train platform in Hogsmeade. As an international camper, she was flooing to the international floo station instead of taking the train with Ben and his friends. Dani had walked with them that far to say goodbye, though. Cooper and Luke had moved off a bit to give her and Ben a bit of privacy, but she’d been all too conscience of them still being nearby.

It had made them both nervous, she thought. Or maybe it was just saying goodbye to each other that had. Dani had been uncharacteristically quiet, and Ben had been kind of stuttery. They promised to write when they got home, as always. They’d hugged. Then Ben had kind of paused, and then leaned in to kiss her cheek briefly. He’d smiled shyly at her and told her goodbye and was turning to go before Dani could really react. He had followed his friends up the steps to board the train by the time Dani’s brain finally kicked her into doing something and calling his name and asking him to wait.

Ben had ducked back out the door, a somewhat worried look on his face. Daniela jumped up onto the top step, stood on her tip toes, grabbed the front of his shirt to get him to bend down a little more for her, and kissed him full on the lips.

It had been her first kiss, ever. And even though she didn’t have anything to compare it too, thought it had been a pretty good one. She’d felt a little weak in the knees. Or maybe it was just her precarious position on a thin platform. Either way, Ben had wrapped an arm around her and that had also been pretty nice. She heard Ben’s friends behind him reacting, but didn’t pay it any mind.

The train’s whistle, however, brought her back from cloud nine and made her realize she was pretty unsteadily perched on the outside of a train that was about to start moving, pulling Ben half out of it. She’d pulled back, smiled at him, and told him to have a good summer before jumping down and walking back up the platform.

Have a good summer. Honestly, what a dumb thing to say to someone you’d just kissed. But now she was less concerned about that and more concerned about what she’d say to him when she saw him again. She hadn’t at the feast yesterday; the hall had been packed with people. She had seen his friend Luke, however, when he’d been called up as Champion, and thought she’d saw Cooper with him at the table. But everyone at that table was sporting Gryffindor red, not Hufflepuff yellow.

She was hoping to catch up with him today. She thought she’d seen him between classes a couple times, but each time it had been someone else. Finally, on her free hour, she’d managed to wrangle someone with a Hufflepuff crest and ask them if they knew where Ben was. He’d directed her to the greenhouse, setting up for a herbology meeting later that evening. Dani made her way there, feeling nervous and trying to keep herself ready for any kind of reaction. It was okay if he wasn’t into her. It was also very okay if he was. She was just going to play it by ear and see how it went. The most important thing to her was that she kept one of her very best friends.

Entering the greenhouse, Daniela finally found Ben. She smiled as he realized she was standing there, tucking one side of her hair behind her ear. “Hey,” she said.

After Quidditch Camp, the rest of Ben's summer flew by and the next thing he realized, he was back at good ol' Hogwarts. Ever since the end of camp, the Hufflepuff boy could only think of one thing: Daniela Fuentes. To be fair, the American beauty was often on his mind, but due to recent events he probably couldn't shake the thought of her even if he wanted to. Dani was even more amazing in person than in her letters. Meetign her was definitely a dream come true. She was smart, funny, beautiful, and an amazing quidditch player to boot. They got to know one another SO much better than they ever could if they wrote for a hundred years. They learned a few of each others quirks and, of course, the way her eyes sparkle and dance when she smiles and laughs...

The end of camp was sad and amazing at the same time. He now felt he understood what they meant about parting being sweet sorrow. He was sad to see Dani go but they promised to see each other again and he could not wait for that. When it was time to say goodbye, Ben had wrapped his arms around her tightly, and, because he was feeling bold and felt like it, he kissed her cheek. He had never kissed a girl before and he was always taught to respect girls so he didn't want to do anything that may have upset her. He thought that she may only want to be friends, and if that was what Dani wanted, Ben was ok with it. He also figured it was ok for a boy who was a friend to kiss a girl who was a friend on the cheek. Ben doesn't even remember too much after that because the next thing he knew, he was sticking his head out of the train after Dani called to him and she had pulled into a kiss. A KISS! A real one, on the lips and it was amazing! Dani's lips were so soft and Ben just wanted her close, so he slid his arm behind her waist and pulled her close. Sadly, they had to part themselves as the train was leaving. Dani told him to have a nice summer and all Ben could find it in himself to do was smile a dumb smile and nod as she walked away.

Back at school, he found that there was some big tournament this year. And even better, they had students from other school there which meant new friends! And even better than THAT was that Dani's school was there, too! He was super excited to see her but he found himself with a problem. He talked to his big brother Cooper and he basically told him that if he liked Dani to just “go for it”, which is really what Ben wanted to do. He had to restrain himself from standing up in the great hall and calling out to her in the middle of everything. Ben just wanted to see Dani. His pretty much a brother Luke told him that he didn't want to seem to eager with her.

Going about his daily business, Ben figured if he ran into Dani then he would just take things as they came. That sounded like a decent plan, right? The last thing he expected, however, was for Dani to find him in the greenhouse. She sought him out. She came looking for him. He smiled his dumb smile that seemed to be on his face when Dani was around. Pulling the gardening gloves off his hands, he stepped towards Daniela. “Hey...” he said softly, before taking her face in his hands and kissing her.

I see sparks fly whenever
you smile
To say that Daniela’s stomach was in knots was a massive understatement. They hadn’t really had a chance to talk about everything yet; Dani had a started a letter a dozen times after she got back to New Mexico. But every time it sounded lame, or stupid, and she ended up crumpling it up and throwing it away. But then the news of this competition came in the mail, and Dani found out she’d be back at Hogwarts this school year. Talking about it face to face would definitely be better.

Better maybe, but not less nerve racking. Still, Dani was a pretty confident girl, and she wasn’t going to let a little thing like butterflies keep her from going after what she wanted.

The greenhouse was beautiful, but the Wampus girl barely spared a glance for her surroundings. She bounced over to Ben, a timid smile on her face. She was still working out what to say to him when he stepped over and kissed her.

Resting her hands on his arms, Dani recovered from her surprise fast enough to lean into it, kissing him back. After a moment they both pulled back, the brunette smiling widely. “Wow,” she breathed. “Way to make a girl feel like you’re happy to see her.”

Biting her lip, Dani laughed almost bashfully. “Sooo… Is it safe to say you’re not mad about that kiss this summer?” she asked. Her gaze lingered on his lips for a moment before raising to meet his eyes. “I’m not going to lie, I had been thinking about that for a long time. And then getting to spend a month playing quidditch with you, and getting to be around you in person….” Dani smiled and shrugged.

“Because, uh, kinda would like to do it again,” she said, before tugging him forward by the front of his shirt and kissing him again.

Magic. That's what Dani was to Ben. Kissing her and having her close to him was just magic. Not magic like they were learning about but a whole other level of magic that he didn't even know existed until she kissed him on that train platform. He thought about her every moment of every day since then. He wanted to talk to her again, to see her, and of course kiss her. When he found out about the tournament he could not wait to see her. He didn't know what would happen when he did and hadn't planned anything but the moment he saw her, he knew what he wanted.

Ben chuckled at Dani's 'wow' comment. “I am happy.” he said softly. “So , so happy.” Dani bit her lip in the cutest way and Ben just wanted to squeeze her in a hug and hold her close. After the kiss, Ben had removed his hands from Dani's face but allowed them to gently slide down her arms and rest on her hips. He laughed softly and shook his head when she questioned him being mad about the kiss over the summer. “I'm maybe only upset that it couldn't last longer.” he said with a shy smile.

Dani admitted to have been thinking about their kiss for a long time and that made him even happier. “Me, too.” he interjected softly as she continued to talk about quidditch and getting to be around him. Playing quidditch with Dani truly was amazing. They worked together well and were very in sync and he loved it. She said she would like to do that again. She pulled on his shirt and leaned in to kiss him. Ben smiled and wrapped his arms around her waist, holding her tight and returning the kiss.

Damn he was crazy about her...

All Ben wanted right now was to be in Dani's company and kiss her and hold her and talk to her. Nothing else mattered to him in that moment, especially the work he came there to do. It was mostly done anyway. No big deal. He had Dani. Pulling from the kiss but only enough to be a breath away from her, Ben smiled. “I missed you so much.” he whispered. “I just want to be around you all the time and do nothing else... is that bad?”
