Title: A Private Celebration
Words: 252
Rated: PG-13
A/N: Written for Rose/Scorpius Week at nextgen_drabble.



Rose and Scorpius gently tinked their champagne flutes against each other, then interlocked their arms, leaned close, and took their first sip. Rose giggled.

"We are being ridiculously silly, aren't we?" Scorpius smiled at Rose.

"I like it when you're silly. The bubbles just tickled my nose." Keeping her arm interlocked with Scorpius' she took another sip. "This is delicious champagne. What kind is it?"

"Dom Perignon."

"Scorpius! That's so expensive."

"Better make sure you enjoy it then." Scorpius winked.

"I fully intend to," Rose smiled as she took another sip, "but I think I'll enjoy it more if we unlink our arms." Rose extricated her arm from Scorpius', careful not to spill any of her champagne.

"Thank Merlin you said something. I was starting to get a cramp." Scorpius carefully set his champagne on the nightstand, and began rubbing his arm.

"Here, let me." Rose set down her glass and took over massaging Scorpius' arm. "You don't need to lose circulation to prove your love, you know."

"Well, that's a relief!" Scorpius laughed. He looked into Rose's sparkling eyes, and leaned towards her, kissing her gently. "I love you."

"I love you, too." Champagne temporarily forgotten, Rose cuddled up against Scorpius' chest, stretching her legs out on the Egyptian cotton sheets. She sighed happily, "The party was fun, and I know the children went to so much trouble to plan it, but having this holiday alone with you is a much better gift."

"I couldn't agree more. Happy fiftieth anniversary, love."

Awww, that is terribly sweet. I fully enjoyed it. I liked how we are led to believe maybe it's a very young couple we are witnessing, because of the silliness, only to discover that they've actually been together for fifty years.

Gives us all hope. ;)

One little thing: there's a line of dialogued that's not signaled as such. It should be,

"I fully intend to," Rose smiled as she took another sip. "But I think I'll enjoy it more if we unlink our arms." Rose extricated her arm from Scorpius', careful not to spill any of her champagne.

There's the opening (") missing in what you have. :D

Thank you! That's exactly what I intended. ;) I was thinking about all of the cute, older couples I know as I was writing this.

Thanks also for the correction. It's fixed now. ;D

Charming. Old people can be romantic and silly. too. I think it helps if you start out that way.
