First love

Purple roses

Charming smile

Disarming laugh

Blue cloaks

Muggle Quidditch

With economics students

On the quad

Fluttering hearts

Churning stomachs

Burning cheeks

Never Have I Ever



Met someone like you



A car crash

Deceased friend

Your happiness


Flowers, just for you

Me, the Flower Girl

The Reading

The Cards

The Queen of Hearts drawn to

The King of Hearts tied to

Another King

The Queen of Broken Hearts

Left behind

Goodbye King

Charming smile

Disarming laugh

Goodbye blue cloaks

Muggle Quidditch

Bầu cua tôm cá

Goodbye fluttering hearts

Churning stomachs

Burning cheeks

Goodbye first crush

Blue roses
