Title: Too Little Too Late
Word Count: 286 sorry but I love Hestia Jones in the way I've created her and I get a kick out of pairing her with Reggie Black hehehe
Characters: Hestia, Regulus, Lily, Remus, mention of Sirius.
Warning: Characters created in my own view but JK Rowling owns them I just abuse them :)
Hestia Jones saw Regulus from across the lawn. She froze she hadn’t seem him since school started and she was afraid she’d give away exactly how she felt about him to her friends.
“What’s up Hes?” Lily asked her, green eyes following Hestia’s gaze to the younger boy.
“Oh no Hestia, C’mon I thought we got over this last year.”
“We did, I just hadn’t seen him yet this year,” Hestia lowered her eyes. She had decided last year after Regulus had told her, sadly, that he didn’t return her affection that she could waste no more time loving him. But it also meant they couldn’t be friends anymore which had upset them both.
Only Lily, Hestia and Regulus knew how she felt, they’d kept the rest from her friends especially since Hestia was friends with Reggie’s brother Sirius and the two hated each other.
Hestia had even found another boy over the summer, one that really liked her, he was handsome and sweet and smart everything Regulus hadn’t been. But still her chin came up and she tracked her old friend across the grass.
Reggie stopped and turned and his eyes found her, he smiled and raised a hand. Lily grabbed Hestia’s and hissed, “No, he’s coming.” Referring to Hestia’s new boyfriend.
An arm wrapped around her waist and she felt breath in her ear a minute before lips touched her cheek. She watched anger fill Regulus face as Remus Lupin came into view, spooning her backside.
Her eyes filled as she saw emotion she’d always wanted to see fill Reggie’s face but it was too late, it had been time for change so she’d done so and Regulus’ jealousy was too little too late.
