A/N: written for akutenshi2007 who wanted Fred/George/Lee: dreams, Quidditch, cherry, beat, eyelashes.
You think they’re funny, the way they don’t let things come between them. You think they’re strong for that too, and you wonder sometimes, as you watch them laughing, tossing pillows at each other, if you would ever have been able to handle being a twin. You also wonder sometimes if you’re the only one who has ever been able to tell them apart. You’re proud of it, though you won’t ever reveal just how it is you know. It is something about the way George has at least twice as many copper-colored eyelashes, and that Fred’s lips are more full so that when they smile, they look different though it’s just around the corners of their mouths, and no one else would ever notice because who else takes the time to look at their mouths but you? They smile so much it strains the muscles in your jaw just to grin back, and you love that feeling. You think just the dreams and memories of those secret smiles you three share will be enough to keep you happy for the rest of your life.
You suppose that there’s more to school than Quidditch, but when it’s a Gryffindor match, nothing matters but them, and even as you’re shouting out the latest score or announcing that Harry has once again caught the Snitch, your eyes are on them, always on them. You wonder if anyone ever notices, but decide that they must all be too busy with their own things to see the way you melt and drown and fall apart whenever Fred and George are around. It’s worse after the games and practices, when you are all in the Great Hall stuffing yourselves with cupcakes and cherry pie. They ramble on about game strategy and flying and you try to pay attention but you don’t understand and, to tell the truth, you’re not even sure you want to. You’re content to just watch their mouths move as they finish each other’s sentences.
You think and suppose and wonder many things, but you know that those what-ifs don’t matter because your heart skips a beat when they refer to you, all three of you, together, as ‘we’, ‘us’, a single word. And you know that it is only two letters, and it is only the whole world.
