Location(s): Cho and Percy's flat, Grimmauld Place.
Date: 10th of September, 2000.
Summary: Cho quickly corresponds with someone obvious.
It took her longer than it should have to write Ron.
She knew it was necessary. She knew it was easy. But something in Cho simply couldn't manage the letter for some time, even after talking with Percy; he'd been so sure it was a good thing to do she couldn't help but feel the same by association, but even then there was something unspeakably strange about writing to Ron. Writing to Ron like some kind of friend, which was how they'd behaved at various functions since last year, but --
Apparently some nameless part of her was still fifteen, and still felt she had no place with people who loved Harry.
But here's how it came out:
Hello. How are you?
It all sounded hopelessly impersonal.
Around this portion Cho was forced to squint at her writing for a good minute, trying to decide if this was really the best idea.
I've meant to ask you for some time now. It has to do with the tinkering
you used to do with Anthony? Well -- I've sort of gotten into something
similar, and I was wondering if you have any notes you could share.
Particularly about the modified Sneakoscope.
If you do, would you much mind sharing? I'm a bit behind in figuring it out.
I've got a funny feeling it's much simpler than I think.
There are a few things I could share with you in return, if you'd like --
just funny things my father's shown me. They could be useful in your new profession!
Anyway, there's no need to hurry. I was only wondering, and if you haven't got time
it's perfectly all right. Let me know.
It would simply have to do.
