Sighing Pansy said, 'I accused him of doing something he didn't do; at least, I don't think he did, and I lost my temper.'
Pansy hadn't glanced at Neville since they entered the library and Neville wondered if she even knew he was standing there. Ginny looked at Neville and shrugged. Whatever Pansy was angry about earlier it hadn't been getting Neville in the gift exchange.
'Shh!' Madam Pince was there glaring at them, and Ginny tugged on both Harry and Pansy to get them out into the corridor. Neville and Luna followed, because they always followed Ginny, while Hermione and Ron went back to their books. Neville glanced back to see that Ron stared after the group obviously wanting to follow them, too.
'So, what is your idea,' Harry asked Ginny before Pansy could.
'You should send him something, but not for the exchange from you.'
'Or a secret admirer,' Luna offered the idea.
Pansy's eyes lit up. 'Quoth the raven, yes!'
Ginny nodded enthusiastically, 'That's an even better idea, Harry! Keep him guessing for a while and then surprise him with it being you on Christmas!'
'Wait,' Harry said, stopping everyone's excitement. 'Why would I do this?'
Neville smiled and said, 'Because you want to.' Before Harry could start denying it, Neville added, 'He's all you talk about anymore.'
'That's because he's up to something,' Harry said in a hushed tone, and then to Pansy he asked, 'Why would you want me to send him something anyway?'
Pansy snorted. 'Because you're all he ever talks about, too.'
She looked toward Neville and their eyes met, making his stomach flip. She certainly noticed him then.
