It’s all fun and games until someone gets hit with a chair. There you might be, walking through the Great Hall, and you’ll start to think, “hey, this is easy. I’m going to make it. Being a socialite isn’t as scary as some people make it out to be,” then, BAM, a chair bayonets you like a pineapple at a Hawaiian cookout.
You try not to fall, but you simply cannot help face-planting straight into the four-inch tall wedge heels that you told yourself not to wear today. That’s what you get for buying a pair of shoes from Beyoncé’s new line of clothing.
Cheeks aflame like the brilliant crimson fireworks in Katy Perry’s new music video, you bring yourself to rest on your knees and try to retain any dignity you have left. (If you’re a member of the Gryffindor House, you gave up all dignity in exchange for insanity and a good time, so there’s no need to for us to bother.)
You let your gaze sweep the room. They glide over the small boy with flaming orange hair, reading a copy of Cosmo the magazine. The girl in the corner (who somewhat resembles an annoying, pop-music-stalking RQT’er) talking avidly to a Mr. Potato Head. Slowly, you start to think no one saw your debacle and you might be safe from public mockery, but, alas, that is only wishful thinking. A band of students eating those chocolate turtle things turns to stare and point at your inability to walk.
Cheeks alight once again; you make a sprinting break for the Astronomy Tower. You fling yourself up the marble steps, running like a cow from a McDonalds, and into the nearest classroom. Tears are nearly streaming from your eyes, but you bite them back. Why would you cry over falling in giant wedge heels? You’re fairly certain even Cher has done it once before. Oh, who are you kidding? Cher would never wear wedge heels.
You sniff back the burn of falling in front of a horde of people, but cannot quash your bitter thoughts over not tripping up the stairs in such heels. You hold back another sniff as someone thrusts a handkerchief under your nose. As you look up, you see the world’s most gorgeous man and as his eyes meet yours...you know that he has fallen in love with a careless man’s careful daughter.
