Taking a great gasp of air, Egon holds his hand, palm up, at arm's length. Looking down his arm, he positions his hand such that his extended fingers appear to him to be caressing another Ravenclaw's cheeks. As he gazes down his arm and looks across the room into his Prefect's eyes, he breathily states,
"Well...I'm sorry to say it, my dear...no...that doesn't quite cover it...my radiant light that shines down on me from up on high, she who makes my heart beat within my chest, my sun, my moon, my starlit sky, my Emeraude...I still doubt your fidelity to our Townie Cause, and it breaks my heart to say so."
Well THAT just explains EVERYTHING.
Doesn't the school boy pick on the girl with pigtails because he secretly has a crush on her? Stop picking on me, Egon. It's not my fault you're in love with me.
