She heard a noise coming from the walls and immediately blushed. How much did the paintings see? Bloom knew that some of these people in the paintings were gossipers. Who knew how quickly the news of their kiss as Prefects would make it around the castle. It was perhaps a very good reason as to why other students choose to be outside, away from castle walls and the likes when doing something against the rules.
"I would love that," Bloom said, taking his hand that he offered to her. She intertwined her fingers with his and with her other hand, she touched the arm that she was holding hands with. In a way, it was a form of cuddling but with walk-like movements. Bloom rested her head on his shoulder and she began to walk with him to make the rest of their rounds.
"By the way, my favorite color is also green," she said, smiling at the Ravenclaw. "Just in case you were still interested to know," she laughed, wondering if he had remembered where they left things in the common room the night before. Bloom felt whole again- as if her heart had never been broken. Ben had mended it and she felt herself.
"So what are we now? Should we tell others?" she asked. For the first time, she was past the crush phase and onto the phase that was truly unknown to her. What are they to do about their relationship? Do they title themselves as boyfriend and girlfriend? Do they tell their closest friends? Typically, Bloom would want to tell Felicity about this, but she wanted to see what Ben would want to do first.
