Daily Prompt: Write a post in which the protagonists of two different books or movies meet for the first time. How do they react to each other? Do they get along?
Cath (from Fangirl)
Harry Potter (you know which book he’s from)
“Oh…hi.” Cath shuffled awkwardly on the spot as the young man standing in front of her smiled curiously. She had never laid eyes on him before but for some reason, his presence seemed slightly familiar.
“Hello,” the man replied. “This is the fiction-writing class, isn’t it?” Cath nodded and in a moment of unexpected curiosity she took a moment to look up at his face. He wore peculiar round glasses which seemed too outdated to be a fashion statement, and on his forehead beneath black hair…what was it? Surely not a lightning shaped scar? Cath looked back down at the floor.
“My name’s Harry,” the man continued. “It’s nice to meet you.”
“Cath,” Cath mumbled. And then slightly louder: “My name’s Cath. You’re new here then?” The young man nodded.
“Yes. But I probably won’t be here for long. You see, I’m looking for someone.” For a moment Harry looked almost as awkward as Cath felt. His voice went down a few notches. “You couldn’t help me, could you?” Startled, Cath looked around for someone – anyone – to save her from this situation. Of course, there was no-one.
“Erm…who are you looking for?” She asked.
“Someone – a man. His name is Nick but that’s all I know.” Cath’s stomach went funny for a second. Nick. The same guy who had completely used her to write his assignment last year. Well, she hoped this ‘Harry’ man standing in front of her wanted to give him a hard time.
“Yes, yes I know him. He should be along in a few minutes.”
“You know him, then?” Harry asked.
“He’s an idiot.” The green eyes beneath the glasses crinkled into a smile at Cath’s response.
“Well, luckily for you he might not be here for much longer.”
“Why?” Now Cath was really curious.
“Let’s just say he’s been causing a few problems in my world. I’ll be back again tomorrow.” And with that, Harry began to walk away down the corridor and away from Cath. His world. What on earth? She looked behind her to see if anyone else had arrived yet, but still there was no-one. When she turned to look back at the man’s retreating back, he had vanished.
