“So where exactly are we going?” I asked as I followed the Boy-Who-Scored down the streets of fucking muggle London of all places.
“To the zoo,” he said, rolling his eyes at me as he squeezed my hand.
“That’s helpful. What is a zoo?” I hate it when he throws around muggle terms.
“It’s a place where muggles keep wild and exotic animals so they can see them,” he explained to me as he passed the person inside of a building some muggle money.
“Why do muggles enjoy this so much?” I asked after we had walked around this “zoo” place. All I saw were animals that were cooped up in cages and small enclosures.
“It gives them a chance to see animals they would never get a chance to see at any other time,” Harry said as he pulled me towards one of the enclosures.
“It’s cruel,” I muttered, crossing my arms over my chest as I walked over to a large tree, basking in the coolness of the shade it provided. I yawned as I watched Harry toss food into the monkey pit. A noise from the tree above me caught my attention, and against my better judgement, I looked up. To my surprise, there was something in this tree that I had never seen before. Three feet above my head were two squirrels getting it on, chattering away as they fucked. Now that was the life, running around and gathering nuts and fucking whenever and wherever you felt like it. I was still contemplating being a squirrel when Harry wrapped his arms around me.
“I want to be a squirrel,” I said thoughtfully, leaning against Harry.
“It’s better than a ferret I guess,” he said with laugh, he loved rubbing Moody’s trick in my face.
“Shut up,” I muttered, trying to pull away, but he held me tight.
“I only torture you because it’s so easy, you should know this by now,” he said, kissing my cheek as he hugged me.
“Yeah, I know,” I said, rolling my eyes, he was so annoying sometimes.
“You want to leave?” he asked, he always knew when I was bored to death.
I smiled in relief and kissed him softly. “Please get me out of here before I perform a huge alohamora and release all of these poor animals,” I declared, taking Harry’s hand and dragging him towards the exit.
“God, you actually care about the animals, I’m shocked,” Harry said, he was entirely too amused by this.
“At least I’m not trying to save the house elves,” I muttered darkly, glaring at him.
“That’s Hermione’s job,” Harry said, sliding his arm around my shoulders. Damned mudbl- Granger, why does she have to upstage everyone?
“Can we just go home and have squirrel sex?” I asked, rolling with laughter at Harry’s gob smacked expression.
