Greg huffed dramatically. There was no way he'd allow his Maeve to cry like this. He may only be eight years old, but that didn't mean he couldn't cheer up his best mate. Her older brother Declan, home from Hogwarts for the Easter holiday, had said something to make her cry. That wasn't on, not at all. He stepped into the kitchen and grinned when he caught sight of his house elf, Luthien.

"Luthien," he said forcefully. "I need armor."

"Armor, Master Val?" Luthien inquired with a smile. "Whatever for?"

He rolled his eyes and sighed. "Declan made her cry. She needs a Knight in shining armor."

"Indeed," Luthien said dryly, turning to give instructions to the other house elves.

Shortly, Greg was clad in the best armor he could find in the kitchens. His mum's best silver serving platter was tied (with dish cloths) to his chest, he had a long-handled stirring something in place of a sword, and atop his head was a silver mixing bowl. He was rather proud of his efforts. At the very least, he'd get a smile out of Maeve. He hurried through the house, clattering and clanking loudly, and finally made it back out to the willow tree by the pond. "Maeve?"

Tracey turned, feigning surprise as she'd heard him coming all the way across the grounds. "Val? Whatever are you doing?"

He straightened his shoulders. "I'm your Knight in shining armor, here to save you from mean and nasty older brothers of course."

You're my knight in shining...whatever that is, all right. Tracey giggled, covering her wide grin with her hand and murmured, "Yes, yes you are, Val."

This is cute! :D

But out of curiosity, why DO they call each other Maeve and Val?

Greg's middle name is Valerius and Tracey's is Maeve. Or at least those are the middle names that jandjsalmon and I created when I played Greg and she played Tracey in an RPG. They've sort of become our OTP.

I'm glad you liked it! :D
