Characs: Ted and Andi
When: 23 Mar 1976, morning
Where: By the lake
Summary: Ted's bday pressy

(A bit long so there's a cut)

Andi hoped the owl would get to Ted and wake him up before he woke up by himself. She had scrawled "Happy Birthday Ted" on the envelope in multi-coloured ink and the rest of the letter was in a normal black ink.



Teddy,

Happy 17th, welcome to the legal life!

Don't go to breakfast, don't panic I will feed you, but come down to the lake and follow the trail - you'll see.

Much love,

Andi


Andi had got up quite early to get everything ready, she had visited the kitchens and the elves had helped her with their breakfast, and then she had gone down to set up by the lake. She left a trail of red rose petals from the path along to her hidden cove, that she had charmed so only her and Ted could see it. At the end of the trail in the cove was a tartan blanket laid out on the sand with a huge variety of foodstuffs, ranging from scrambled eggs to strawberries to a pitcher of pumpkin juice. The elves had been quite enthusiastic when she had asked for help. In amongst it all sat Andi, who fiddled nervously with her school tie, growing gradually more impatient as she waited for Ted to get up and arrive.

Ted woke up to an owl pecking at his arm. "Oi, lay off," he mumbled rolling over. The owl didn't listen but continued pecking. Finally Ted got annoyed and nearly pushed the owl off until he saw the letter in its mouth. "Sorry 'bout that," he apologised, petting the owl's feathers. He opened the letter and grinned before hopping out of bed and throwing on his favourite pair of school robes and hurrying down to meet Andie.

The trail surprised him, but he continued on and beamed when he saw her on the blanket. "Good mornin'."
"Morning, happy birthday." She patted a patch of blanket next to her, indicating for him to sit down.
Ted grinned and sat down immediately. "What's this about feeding me?" He said after greeting her with a sweet kiss.
"Take a look around, and you have to be proud of me, I didn't use my wand once to help the elves with the cooking, I did it all by hand." She grinned, handing him a goblet of pumpkin juice.
"You're becoming more and more muggle-like everyday," he teased, taking a sip of his juice.
She raised an eyebrow, "I just wanted to do something different."
"And I appreciate it," Ted's tone sobered slightly. "Really, I do, babe."
"Good," She smiled gently at him, "How much will you tease me if I say that doing things by hand is quite relaxing?"
Ted wrapped his arm around her shoulders. "I'll say that I'm glad you think so and you're not so attached to doing it the magic way."
"I'll try anything once, and if I like it I'll continue." She turned her face to kiss him, and slipped her arm around his waist, she smiled and patted his side. "You better be hungry, now that I helped to make it all we have to eat it."
"Starving," he smiled at her. "You really didn't have to do all this for me, love." Ted rubbed her shoulders. "But I'm glad you did," he whispered into her ear.
"I didn't want to do anything show-offy like Cissy would for Lucius, or forget like Bella would, I was being me, and thinking of something completely original, although it may take me all year to better this for your next birthday."
He grinned. "I wouldn't care if we did the exact same thing."
"If we did that then when you're old you may have a hard time distinguishing which birthday was which, by doing something different every year it'll help your memory to stay active, expand and then you can forget the truly horrible ones." She grinned back up at him and nibbled on a chocolate coated strawberry.
He laughed and took a strawberry for himself. "Okay, then I'll let you come up with something new for me every single year," Ted winked at her.
"If you insist." She smirked, sevretly wondering how long they would be together, from what Ted was saying it seemed to be a long time, or at least longer than the rest of school, which scared her slightly as that meant having to deal with her family, not only her sisters and cousin, but her parents and aunt as well.
Ted wasn't exactly what he meant either, but it really was the way he felt. He finished off his strawberry and picked another one up, holding it tenderly to Andi's lips.
Andi took a bite of the strawberry and didn't notice when a trail of juice wound it's way down her chin.
Ted saw the trail of juice and caught it with his fingers, smiling as he brushed her chin clean.
Andi blushed a little, "You'd think I would be able to eat without spilling by now." She scolded herself.
"You're still beautiful, even with juice running down your face," he grinned.
"You know, I think I'm falling in love with you." She said, surprisng herself slightly, Think before you speak Andromeda, then you won't sound like an idiot! She thought wildly, awaiting Ted's reply as she looked into his grinning face.
Ted's grin turned into a somewhat shocked smile. "Well, I know that I'm in love with you," he admitted, letting his hand fall to her cheek.
Andi's smile slowly grew wider, "How long have you known?"
"Few days," he replied. "I was just trying to figure out the right moment to tell you."
