Lily grabbed his hands and led him toward the outer edge of the dance floor, where it was less crowded. The music slowed, and she put her arms around his neck. "So, how have you been?"

"Okay...It's been really busy at the Ministry. This is the closest thing to a holiday I've had in a while."

"Aw, poor Teddy." Lily smiled. "Anything happen with that lady Auror friend of yours you were telling us about? Lissa?"

Teddy shook his head. "Not my type." – here he smiled inwardly – " I haven't had much time on my hands to do anything but work lately anyway."

"Well, you'll have to stop by a little more for dinner and stuff now that I'm home. Mum will be happy she'll have people in the house for a while before I go off to find a job, and work on getting a place."

"You don't have to worry about that quite yet. Don't be in such a rush to get away." Teddy stopped. "I almost forgot. I got you a present too. I didn't get to give it to you earlier." He dug around in his jacket pocket and pulled out a long red velvet box. He handed it to her.

"Aw, Teddy, it's so pretty! Thank you." Lily pulled out the gold heart shaped locket engraved with a red cursive "L". She hugged him, and then attempted, and failed, to unclasp it and put the necklace on. "Help?"

Teddy took the necklace and carefully placed around her neck. "There." He lowered his hands and stood a little awkwardly, as she admired her necklace upside down. Then she surprised him by flinging her arms around him and hugging him again.

They were still dancing at the end of the night. Nearly everyone was gone except for family and close friends. Teddy and Lily had the backyard to themselves as they swayed to a slow song, Lily resting her head on Teddy's chest.
