Letters From Beyond
Letters from Beyond
Rating: PG to PG-13
Genre: A little bit of everything
A/N: Alright this is probably going to be one of my last fics in the harry potter genre ...i may write a mini or one-shot here or there, but school has to come first. I may decide to make a sequel if all goes well with this one...and this fic is pre-HBP no part of the plot in it will be used.
What would Hogwarts be like if Harry was in Slytherin and was best friends with Draco Malfoy? Well, he still saved them from all the perils of Voldemort, has his wonderful godfather (love him too much) and lives with the Dursleys. The only thing is he acts and talks just like Draco! Along with this little twist two new characters from Gryffindor step in. Monique and Sabrina Caccamo are sisters, in Gryffindor since they were 11 and are both in 7th year with Hermione and Ron. Oh yea! Wood and the twins are still there. Together these friends have the strength to overcome any obstacle, but when separated can easily be taken against their will. If they have any chance of destroying the evil the Dark Lord is starting, it is essential they unite. The question is can they put aside petty differences to save the world? I know what you’re thinking what in the world does it have to do with the title?! That part comes in later, until then stay on your toes…I like dropping hints. I’m done talking now so without further a do…Letters from Beyond!
*I was going back over the story and decided to add in a bit in the beginning to clarify some of the plot I thought was getting fuzzy. It doesn't change anything for current readers just adds a bit more suspense
PrologueLucius crossed the gates of the Riddle House looking at the remnants of grass blowing away in the crisp wind. His long silver mane blew lightly in the wind as he climbed the deteriorating wooden steps of the once grand mansion. He mumbled a dark curse under his breath revealing a trap door with a winding staircase reserved for head deatheaters alone. The hairs on his neck stood at attention as he slowly followed the well-known path to the Dark Lord’s lair.
Lucius for the first time in his life feared his great teacher. When he was halfway down the staircase he pointed his wand at the trap door sealing it just as a flash of lightening illuminated the sky. Lucius felt his master’s burning eyes before his foot reached the ground. “I see fear in your eyes, Lucius. Not a very becoming trait of yours,” sneered the Dark Lord, his black cloak hanging over his hideous face.
Lucius remained silent although his posture did return to its normal state. “No matter, this way,” demanded Voldemort, gliding through the passageway as if a being of the supernatural.
Voldemort led them too his study where a roaring fire was prepared. A black cushion chair sat in the middle of the room casting an intimidating shadow over whoever was before it. Voldemort took his seat as Lucius stood before him. “Master, I…” he began.
“No. Do not speak until you are spoken to, Lucius. It will only further enrage me,” snapped Voldemort, coolly. Lucius said no more. “Now, how is it that you were outsmarted by a bunch of teenage brats again? How is it that I ask you for simple tasks and you fail time after time again? Are we losing our touch Lucius or is it simply you are not giving full allegiance to me because you are too busy gallivanting around the Ministry?!”
“It is Dumbledore, my Lord. He keeps assisting the teenage imps at every turn. Although Potter, doesn’t seem to show any fondness towards any of the headmaster’s ideals from his house selection, he is still against us,” clarified Lucius, attempting feebly to fall back into his master’s good graces.
Voldemort yawned apparently bored by his explanation, “You’re telling me nothing I don’t know already, Lucius,” snapping his fingers Nagini slithered in beside him poised to strike, “If you want any chance to redeem yourself, tell me this very moment what I should plan to do to gain conquest if these are my only obstacles!”
Lucius peered out the slit of his eye at the large fangs of the snake, shivering at the very thought of it, “Infiltrate Hogwarts from the inside out,” he responded, quickly as possible.
Voldemort shooed away Nagini leaning back in his chair. “Finally you are starting to think Lucius. Fortunately for your sake, I already have a way and a plan to do that”
Lucius took a deep breath in trying to contain his relief. “How do you intend upon going about this my Lord?”
“With the help of our ancestors and two very important young ladies…”
~****~“Hey Hermione!” Sabrina Caccamo said hugging her best girlfriend. Sabrina Caccamo had on tight jean capris, a fitted pink tank showing off her very curvy figure and all white Nike sneakers. She was about 5’6 with toffee skin, hypnotizing dark brown eyes and brown hair with blond highlights.
“Hey ‘Brina! Monique!” Hermione said hugging Sabrina’s sister, Monique Caccamo. Monique looked almost identical to her sister. Monique had chocolate skin, hazel eyes and dark brown hair with red highlights. She was wearing a denim skirt with a red halter and strappy sandals.
Monique jumped when she felt someone slide their hands around her waist. “Fred! Bloody hell! You scared me!” Monique said smiling at her boyfriend.
“I was trying to.” Fred said kissing her on the cheek.
“Aww, how cute.” Ron snickered with George and Ginny following him.
“Oh go snog, Hermione, big head.” Fred shot back. Ron went as red as his hair. Hermione was coughing, trying to hide her clear embarrassment.
“Alright leave them alone, Fred.” Sabrina snickered.
“Why it’s fun?” Fred said giving Ron a dreamy look.
“Because she said so.” Oliver said coming near them.
“Hey!” Sabrina said hugging him.
“Ok, I’ll torture you then.” joked Fred.
“Oh, let me help.” Monique laughed.
“We’re going to miss the train.” Hermione huffed.
“Not to mention our prefects meeting.” Ron added.
“So quick to change the subject.” George teased as they walked on the train.
“Whatever.” Ron said walking away with Hermione and Ginny.
”Let’s see there’s an empty one.” Sabrina said opening the door.
“They need to make these compartments bigger.” George complained.
“We’ll improvise then.” Monique smirked.
Once Fred and Oliver were settled both girls sat on their boyfriends’ laps. “Oh bloody hell.” George whined as the two couples were kissing.
A couple of minutes passed by making George sicker by the minute. “The quidditch cup was excellent. You two treat us too, well.” George said eager to change the subject.
“Oh don’t worry about it. Our grandma hasn’t seen one in ages; it was her present to herself.” Monique gushed.
“It was one we could all enjoy.” Fred chimed in.
“Not to mention the Cannons won!” Sabrina said pumping her fists in the air.
“No wonder I love you so much.” Wood said amiably
”Yes, because she loves quidditch as much as you do but isn’t a slave driver.” Fred snickered
“Fred!” Sabrina scolded.
“He’s not a slave driver, Fred. He’s just an incessant quidditch captain.” Monique corrected.
“You do your job excellently, Oliver. I used to be a horrible quidditch player and now I can beat Harry.” Sabrina complimented.
“At least someone appreciates me.” Oliver said glaring daggers at Fred and Monique.
It wasn’t much longer before Ron, Hermione and Ginny came back from their prefects meeting. The friends talked for most of the ride.
“Anything from the trolley dears?” the sweet cart lady asked. Everyone bought his or her own sweets as the trolley moved on. Just when the door closed it reopened to reveal the snickering faces of Harry and Malfoy.
“Well, well, well did you guys have a fun summer?” Harry bantered.
“It was great until you showed up right now.” Monique snapped.
“Aww, I’m hurt.” Harry said laughing.
“Why don’t you and ferret face, take a hike?” Ron yelled.
“Poor weasel, can’t think of anything better?” Draco teased.
“Please you two are only jealous because we whip you’re a** every quidditch game!” Sabrina said getting up.
Draco’s looked at her with a very cruel smirk. “I certainly don’t think someone will be able to catch, Harry, this year.” Draco smirked.
“Oh why not?” Sabrina said in a matter of fact tone.
“With the weight of that chest, not gonna happen.” Malfoy retorted before getting decked in the face from Wood.
“Get out of here before you’re down a chaser!” Oliver bellowed. Harry and Malfoy, with a busted lip, scrambled out of the compartment.
“The nerve of him!” Monique said holding her frazzled looking sister.
“’Brina, you ok?” Hermione asked her voice filled with concern. Sabrina nodded silently.
“Don’t you let what Malfoy said get to you. He’s an a**.” George said sitting next to her.
“Besides its, Malfoy. He would say anything to upset you.” Ron commented with distress in his blue eyes.
“You’re one of the best seekers at Hogwarts. Nothing is going to stop you from being the best you can be.” Oliver said holding both of her hands.
“Thanks.” Sabrina smiled weakly. “You’re right. It’s…nothing it just got to me that time.” she said trying to sound cheerful.
“Ok, we’re gonna be at Hogwarts in 10 minutes so, we better put on our robes." Ginny said changing the subject away from Malfoy and his stupid comments. The girls left for the bathroom while the guys stayed behind in the compartment.
“Oliver, I must say I’m impressed. You actually busted his lip, nice work.” George complimented, his voice lacing with sarcasm.
“I don’t want to hear it anymore. Just the thought of him makes me furious.” Oliver said making a fist.
“I’m surprised he was even looking at her, after all she is a Gryffindor.” Ron added. Oliver was glaring so hard at Ron; steam could have come out of his ears.
“If looks could kill, Wood.” Fred said making a face.
“Look nothing is going to tear Sabrina and I apart especially Draco Malfoy.” Oliver said threw clenched teeth.
“Why was ‘Brina so upset anyway, usually she would have made him feel smaller than an ant?” asked a slightly confused George.
“She won’t ever talk about it, whenever I ask she says forget it or we get into another fight.” Wood shrugged.
“You two have spent a lot of time talking, alone. Are you both hiding something?” George asked skeptically.
“What are you talking about?” Oliver replied quickly. Fred was looking around the room.
“I know what you and Fred are hiding.” Ron smirked mischievously.
“What?!” both guys asked.
“I overheard you, Wood, Sabrina and Monique talking about it over the summer.” Ron challenged.
“Brother you didn’t inform me of this.” George said sounding hurt.
“Look we’re sworn under secrecy we can’t say.” Fred defended.
“Fine, I won’t say what you’re planning to do intheRoomofRequirement!” Ron said quickly.
“I’m speechless! You never told me! This is important news!” George said very interested now.
“Ron you’re gonna pay!” Fred threatened. “Wait until I find you and Hermione together you’re good as dead.”
“What are you guys talking about?” Hermione asked walking into the compartment.
“Nothing.” They said.
“Look, hurry up the train’s pulling into the station in 5 minutes.” Hermione said.
“Done.” They all said scrambling.
“What was that about?” Monique asked Hermione.
“Probably something silly.” Sabrina replied.
“I still don’t believe you guys are going through with it.” Hermione replied.
“Yea, since Ron is the biggest blabbermouth that ever lived it will be news to the whole school soon.” Ginny said.
“He’s not going to say a word. I’m sure Fred and Oliver have already spoken to him.” Sabrina chuckled.
“I hope they get back soon, the train’s pulling into the station.” Hermione said getting her things. The girls were leaving the compartment when they bumped into the guys getting their trunks.
“I think this is going to be an interesting year, sis.” Monique said to her sister.
“I think so, too. For some reason I think our lives will change forever…” Sabrina replied as she stepped on to the platform of Hogsmeade station.
“Zachary, Joseph” McGonagall said reading the final name on the list of first years.
“Hmm…ok…RAVENCLAW!” the sorting hat yelled. The Ravenclaw table erupted into cheers. McGonagall rolled up her list and went to her seat at the Head table.
“I have a few start of the term notices to make before we begin the feast. To all students the Forbidden Forest is out of bounds and is never to be wandered into without the presence of a teacher. Also, Mr. Filch would like to remind you to look at the list of forbidden items posted on his desk. I’m sure all of you must know Voldemort is gaining power so we must all be cautious when not on school grounds. If you see anything suspicious please report it to a teacher or come directly to me. As I said before alone we are defenseless against the enemy but together we are strong and powerful. Now on to a more cheerful note there is going to be a small school Talent Show. Some of our muggle students and I think it’s a grand idea. It opens us up to another world besides our own. Now everyone enjoy the feast!” Dumbledore said as food piled onto the plates.
Ron’s eyes sparkled with happiness as he took huge spoonfuls of everything. “You and your food, Ron.” Monique said.
“Wha?” Ron asked with his mouth full.
“Oh never mind.” Monique gave in.
“So, Hermione what do you think of this talent show thing?” Sabrina asked.
“I don’t know. You girls know I’m not the graceful type. “ Hermione doubted.
“Oh we’ll help you if you want.” Monique squealed.
“Since when do you girls know about muggle arts? You’re purebloods?” Dean Thomas asked.
“We live in a muggle neighborhood and are quite familiar with muggle music, dance and design.” Sabrina explained.
“Really do tell.” Seamus joined in.
“How about we just show you all? It’s a lot better than explaining.” Monique proposed to her sister.
“Yea I like that idea so much better.” Sabrina smirked.
“How did you girls learn all that stuff?” Ginny inquired.
“We taught ourselves.” Sabrina said ending the conversation.
“Oh, I want to see this for myself.” George chimed in.
“Us, too.” Fred and Oliver said smirking mischievously.
“Fine all will be revealed for the show.” Monique said levelly.
“Ok.” Ginny said, turning to chat with her friends.
“‘Mione, you sure you don’t want to enter with us?” Sabrina asked again.
“Positive.” Hermione said.
“What about you, Gin?” Monique asked.
“I’ll pass on that one. Besides I can’t sing, dance or act, forget it.” Ginny said.
Monique and Sabrina shrugged and began thinking of what they were going to do for the talent show. Sadly, Harry and Draco interrupted their thoughts. “So are you two and the mudblood thinking of entering the talent show.” Malfoy drawled.
“Actually, Malfoy, Sabrina and I are entering. Do you have a problem with it?” Monique snapped.
“Not at all. We’d love to see you make fools of yourselves in front of the entire school.” Harry retorted.
“Then again as if you’re much competition to the mudbloods, they actually know what they’re doing.” Malfoy cackled.
“You know what Malfoy you’re really getting on my last nerve today…can’t you torture someone else who won’t kick you’re a** like I will.” Sabrina said irritated.
“Oh yea I’d like to see that day.” Malfoy retorted.
“You’ll see it soon if you don’t shut up!” Oliver yelled also getting irked.
“Shut up, Wood! You can barely catch a quaffle how are you going to catch us?” Harry said.
“How about I just send a bludger you’re way then?” Fred retorted.
“Knock you right off your broom.” George said.
“Or I could catch the snitch 5 minutes before you realize you lost as well.” Sabrina added. Both boys blushed brightly and stalked off.
“They are so annoying,” said Hermione, rolling her eyes.
“What happened?” Ron asked looking up from his food.
“Nothing Ron.” Monique said.
“Ok.” Ron shrugged.
“I’m ready to go to bed now. This has given me a huge headache,” said Sabrina.
“What’s the password, Mione?” Oliver asked.
“Lemon drop.” Hermione informed.
“Thanks.” Sabrina replied.
“We have to bring the first years up so we’ll see you later, ok?” Ron proposed.
“Yea, it’s been a long day.” Sabrina said getting up.
”I’ll come with you.” Monique said.
“Are you two going?” George teased.
“Yea.” Fred and Oliver replied.
“Ok, you can have our room for now.” George taunted.
“George.” Hermione scolded.
“Uh whatever.” Monique said.
“Don’t forget to use…mmhmm.” George yelled but Ginny covered his mouth with her hand.
“George,” scolded Hermione with a glare.
“Ok, Mione” George declared.
The two sisters, Fred and Oliver made their way into the common room before the first years even started upstairs. “Sabrina, are you sure you’re ok?” Oliver asked for the hundredth time.
“I’m positive. If you don’t stop asking…I’m gonna…” Sabrina started but was cut off by Oliver’s lips.
“Well then.” Monique declared.
“Might as well.” Fred said bringing Monique’s lips to his. Not even 2 minutes later they are interrupted by a group of anxious first years lead by Hermione and Ron.
“Uh hem…” Hermione said incredibly irritated.
“Hey ‘Mione.” Fred said sheepishly.
“…And this is the common room in which you see you’re fellow 7th years snogging in.” Ron cracked. Everyone except Hermione found this hilarious.
“Ladies you’re dormitory is to the right, gentlemen to the left. All of your belongings have already been placed there.” Hermione said as the first years walked off to their separate dormitories.
“Do you four know how much trouble you would have been in if I was McGonagall?” Hermione shrieked.
“Yes ‘Mione.” All four friends answered.
“All of you would have had detention the first day back!” Hermione scolded.
“We get it Hermione.” They replied with Ron s******ing in the back round.
“…And you!” Hermione yelled rounding on Ron. “You edged them on!”
“Oh Hermione, you know I was only joking!” Ron said. Dean, Seamus, Neville and George had already sat down to watch the spectacle.
After Ron and Hermione had their first row of the year everyone went up for bed. “You know Hermione, you and Ron fight sadly just like a married couple.” Monique added casually.
Sabrina, Parvati and Lavender doubled over with laughter on their beds as Hermione went scarlet. “Hermione, we all know you like Ron just admit it.” Lavender said.
“Please he makes me crazy!” Hermione insisted.
“Yea crazy in love!” Sabrina said making a dreamy face. Hermione threw a pillow at her.
“Ok, I get it no need for violence.” Sabrina said sounding hurt.
“I’m going to bed.” Hermione said. With a wave of her hand, her uniform was changed into flannel pj’s.
“Let’s not even start on you two anyway. Snogging in the common room.” Parvati teased.
“If it was you and Seamus things wouldn’t have been very different. You too Lavender with oh so dreamy Dean.” Monique taunted.
“Okay we’re all even. Let’s get some sleep now.” Lavender said pulling the covers over her.
“Nox.” Sabrina said to the light. Soon all five girls were fast asleep.
“Did you find it?”
“No, my Lord it’s still…still missing. I’ve been in the archives dozens of times.”
“I don’t care. Find those d***ed books. If this is going to work I need those books!”
“No excuses, Wormtail! If you don’t find them see that cat…”
“Yes my Lord.” Wormtail whimpered.
“Avada Kedevra!” The cat fell to the ground lifeless. “That my friend will be you.”
“Yes my Lord leaving immediately.” Wormtail shuttered and ran from the room. The Dark Lord sat there thinking of how easy this plan was going to be.
“D*** it!” Harry yelled sitting up with his scar throbbing.
“Can’t I sleep, Potter?” Draco muttered.
“Shut up, Malfoy! My scar is throbbing. Another dumb nightmare about Voldemort.” Harry said his voice slightly trembling.
“What was it about?” asked Malfoy realizing it was no ordinary nightmare.
“He was yelling at Wormtail to find some books. He’s up to some evil plot again.” Harry sighed.
“Oh should you tell Dumbledore.” Malfoy said dryly.
“No forget about it.” Harry said.
“Ok, I’ll continue my very interesting dream now.” Draco said.
“About who?” Harry smirked.
“No one.” Draco mumbled barely audible.
“Fine.” Harry mumbled falling back asleep himself.
**I hope you enjoyed the first post, the 2nd should be up momentarily **

“Well what’s first?” Sabrina asked putting sausage and eggs on her plate.
“Transfiguration, Arithmacy, break, History of Magic and Double Potions with our favorite house.” Hermione said.
“Oh joy.” Ron groaned.
“You don’t take Arithmacy, Ron.” Monique corrected.
“So, I take Potions.” Ron groaned.
“Oh forget it.” Monique said.
“So, you signed up for the talent show, yet.” Seamus asked.
“Yea looks like Cho and her friends did along with Pansy, Rita and Gretchen.” Sabrina groaned.
“That’s not too bad. Pansy couldn’t be graceful to save her life.” Seamus doubted.
“Her friend Rita is a b**** but isn’t a bad dancer.” Sabrina grumbled angrily.
“How would you know?” Dean asked getting into the conversation.
“We had a dance off because Monique and I were busting a few moves. She got jealous and joined in. We had a small battle where she got her pretty faced decked.” Sabrina smiled innocently.
“Ouch!” said Seamus making a face.
“Yea it was painful for her. Oh no we’re going to be late.” Monique said grabbing her books.
“Come on guys.” Hermione said pulling Ron away from his food. Oliver, Fred, George, Dean, Seamus and Neville were not far behind them.
“Now to get through my absolute favorite class with my absolute favorite house.” Fred retorted as they all walked into class.
“Or should I say with out favorite duo.” Sabrina said as Harry and Draco walked in the dungeon.
Monique rolled her eyes. “Uh and their groupies.” Monique said as Pansy, Rita and Gretchen filed in soon after them.
“Let’s just get a seat and ignore them.” Hermione said walking to a seat with Ron. George sat with them Fred, Monique, Oliver and Sabrina sat in another row. Professor Snape burst through the doors of the classroom.
“He’s in a cheery mood.” George snickered. Snape looked like his usual boring, arrogant self. He was wearing a devious smirk on his face as if he was hiding something however.
“Welcome to NEWT level Potions. Those of you that have been coerced to study this art will find this level of potion making difficult and strenuous.” Snape said, eyes lingering towards Ron. “Then there are others of you who have a general skill and comprehension for potion making will thrive.” Snape replied looking towards a few Slytherins.
“Here are the instructions for an invisibility potion, start.” Snape instructed. All students took out their quills and parchment to take down the instructions. “When you are done with the potion test it on the person next to you.” Snape said with a cruel smirk.
After two hours of disappearing limbs and shocked screams from seeing missing body parts, class finally ended. “Mr. Malfoy, Ms. Caccamo.” Snape said as the two began to leave for class. “Stay.” He demanded. Sabrina and Draco glared at each other before walking to Snape’s desk.
“I have an assignment for you two. Besides, Granger only you two can successfully concoct most potions. I need both of you to brew me several potions. I’m far too busy to make all of them so, I want you two brewing these potions 2 hours after class every Thursday. It will count as extra credit on your next two exams.” Snape explained, handing each of them a parchment with a list of potions on it.
“Thank you sir.” They both said.
“There’s no conflict with your quidditch schedules either, if there is skip it. Both of you, here at promptly 7 o’clock. Am I clear?” Snape replied menacingly.
“Yes, professor.” They said in unison.
“You may leave.” Snape said waving them away.
“Well Caccamos I guess we’re stuck together.” Malfoy grumbled.
“Shut up, Malfoy. I’m none too pleased being alone with you either.” Sabrina snapped.
“I’m sure Wood wouldn’t love that as well. No one can resist me.” Draco said airily.
“You’re a conceited jerk, Malfoy.” Sabrina snapped before stalking off. Malfoy was going to retort but decided better of it.
“What did Snape want?” Monique asked a very distraught looking Sabrina.
“Snape wants me and Malfoy to work together on potions after class every Thursday. Two hours alone with Malfoy, priceless!” Sabrina said furiously.
“Do you get extra credit?” Hermione inquired.
“Yea on the next two exams.” She grumbled.
“It’ll be okay, ‘Brina just ignore him.” Hermione said trying to make her feel better.
“I’m worried about Oliver, he’s gonna flip.” Sabrina said.
“Worried about what?” Oliver asked with George nearby.
“She has to work with Malfoy, every Thursday after class.” Monique butted in.
“Thank you, Monique.” Oliver said facetiously.
“No problem.” She smiled.
“Why?” He asked sitting next to Sabrina.
“Why what?” Sabrina asked nonchalantly.
“Why did Snape make you work with him?” Oliver demanded.
“He’s too busy to be bothered with making all of these potions. We’re the only ones who can brew a successful potion besides Hermione. That whole trip.” Sabrina said angrily.
“I don’t care just don’t kill him.” Oliver reassured her.
“I’ll try but there are no guarantees. Anyway, Monique what’s the practice schedule?” asked Sabrina trying to end the conversation on Malfoy.
“Oh right, dancers have every Wednesday and Friday nights to practice.” Monique replied.
“Wonderful forget sleeping for 3 days.” Sabrina said.
“Actually we start quidditch practice on Monday nights. I’ll cancel the ones on Wednesday.” Oliver said sheepishly.
“Wonderful. Well I sure hope the teachers know I will be sleeping in class.” Sabrina shrugged.
“Oh yea, McGonagall needed to see me about some quiz we took today I’ll be back.” Monique said getting up.
“You must have really flunked that quiz.” Ron said sarcastically.
“Shut up, Ron.” Monique glared before walking away.
“Caccamo.” Harry said coldly.
“Potter.” Monique said icily. “Why are you following me?”
“Why in bloody hell would I be following you?” Harry snapped.
“You know what you’re not even worth it.” Monique said irritated.
“So, where are you going?” Harry asked.
“If you must know I’m going to see McGonagall.” Monique replied coldly.
“Why so hostile it was only a question?” Harry said jokingly.
“Because you’re a jerk.” She replied bluntly. Both walked into McGonagall’s classroom arguing.
“If you two could stop bickering I could tell you why you’re both here.” McGonagall said sternly. They looked at each other before turning to face McGonagall.
“Thank you. Now both of you and Ms. Granger received top marks on your animagus quiz. I think that both of you should seriously consider becoming animaguses. I would work with both of you after classes. With your advance knowledge I estimate it would only take a few short months perhaps five.” McGonagall suggested. Both teenagers looked at her with utter disbelief.
“You mean work together with you…” Harry said. “…to become animaguses, key thing, Harry and I working together.” Monique said pointing to herself and then Harry.
“Is there a problem?” McGonagall said not looking up from her desk.
“Yes we’ll ring each other’s necks.” Monique snapped.
“Tone, Ms. Caccamo.” McGonagall scolded.
“Sorry.” She muttered.
“For once I agree with Caccamo…” Harry started but was cut off.
“Oh wow it’s a miracle.” Monique snapped.
“I’m trying to get us out of it, would you like to help?” Harry retorted.
“Enough!” McGonagall yelled silencing the argument.
“Okay we’ll work together.” Monique reluctantly complied.
“Good, I expect acceptable behavior and not animal-like one.” McGonagall said coolly. Both nodded silently. “We start tomorrow. You may leave.” McGonagall said shooing them away.
“If you so much as look at me during this I will hurt you.” Monique snapped.
“As if I would have the urge to.” Harry said in a rude tone.
“Cause if you do, you will get hit by a dozen bludgers.” She said pointing her finger at him. Harry looked her up and down.
“Wouldn’t think of it.” Harry said slyly. Monique just stormed off steaming.
“Sugar pep.” Monique mumbled.
“Well you could certainly use one.” The fat lady said.
The portrait door swung open as Monique stormed in looking severely ticked off. “Woo, what happened to you?” Neville asked seeing the look on her face.
“McGonagall wants me to become an animagus!” Monique yelled sitting on the couch next to Fred.
“What’s so bad about that?” Sabrina asked clearly confused.
“She wants me and Potter to!” she yelled making everyone in the common room look at her. “What?!” she growled.
“Okay, looks like our teachers have gone batty.” George replied shaking his head.
“Well this is a great experience anyway even if it’s with Potter.” Hermione said in a matter of fact tone.
“Look, I’m going to bed because I have to be with McGonagall and Potter tomorrow night.” Monique replied.
“Hold up. We need to talk about something.” Fred whispered.
“We know what that means don’t we, Ron.” George joked. Oliver gave him an icy glare, which ended all discussion. George, Ron, Seamus, Dean, Neville and Hermione said their goodnights before going to their dormitories.
“Are you both positive about-“ Fred asked in a serious tone.
“Yes.” Monique replied.
“We’ve already told you that.” Sabrina replied.
“You seem so unsure about it.” Oliver said.
“It’s fine.” Sabrina replied putting her hand on his.
“Okay, so after the Talent Show.” Fred asked.
“Maybe it could be before.” Monique smirked.
“Oh really when between your dance practices, quidditch and homework?” Oliver replied.
“I guess so lets see how it feels. We may need a stress break.” Sabrina said sweetly.
“I know that look. That innocent one.” Oliver said furtively.
“Yea.” Sabrina said kissing him. Monique gave Fred a furtive look before doing the same.
“We’ll think on it.” Fred smirked.
“We probably should head back to our dormitories now.” Sabrina sighed.
“One more.” Oliver pouted.
“Okay.” Sabrina said giving him a peck on the lips. Fred and Monique were still in an intense lip lock.
“Well then.” Sabrina said.
“Fred lets go.” Oliver said nicely. Fred ignored him.
“Monique.” Sabrina sang.
“Bloody hell.” Monique hissed finally pulling herself away from Fred.
“I know…come on.” Sabrina whined.
“Fine.” Monique agreed. They all separated to their own dormitories.
“I’ve found one of the books my Lord.” Bellatrix said.
“Good, obviously Wormtail can’t handle the job.” Voldemort hissed.
“How many are left to find?” Bellatrix asked.
“Nine, I want at least two by Wednesday.” Voldemort ordered.
“My Lord, they’re incredibly hidden it took me a week to find only one.” Bellatrix pleaded.
“You’re point being Bella.” Voldemort replied coldly. He turned to face her, his eyes mad with hate.
“Find them or else you will end up like good old Wormtail.” Voldemort said pointing to a whimpering little man in the corner.
“Master please have mercy.” Wormtail begged.
“If either of you do not come back with something both of you will be eliminated is that clear?!” Voldemort bellowed.
“Yes master.” Bellatrix said walking out.
“Yes my…my…my…L…L…Lord.” Wormtail whimpered.
“Stop sniveling, Cruccio!” the dark lord hissed.
For the second night in a row Harry awoke in a cold sweat.
“Stupid dreams.” He mumbled.
“Again Potter.” Draco growled.
“Yea, I’m getting a sleeping drought from Madame Pomfrey tomorrow.” Harry hissed.
“Yea and end up in Dumbledore’s office.” Draco scoffed.
“Yea your right.” Harry conceded.
“Ignore it.” Draco mumbled incoherently.
“Yea sure easy for you to say Voldemort doesn’t want your head on a platter.” Harry mumbled before falling back off to sleep.
Feedback is always appreciated

“Well I’m off to meet my doom with Potter.” Monique said leaving her friends.
“Remember concentrate on the animagus not Harry.” Hermione lectured her.
“If he pulls anything stupid tell him, the last thing he sees at the quidditch match will be a bludger to the head.” Fred growled.
“Also he will have to deal with me.” Sabrina said leaning back.
“’Brina you’re gonna fall.” Hermione warned.
“Huh? Woo!” she said almost falling off the bench. They all laughed as Wood pulled a very flushed looking Sabrina upright.
“Ok, enough death threats.” Monique said leaving the Great Hall.
“Ok, have fun.” George cackled.
“Yea okay.” Monique said turning around before bumping head on with someone.
“Watch where you’re going, Caccamo.” Harry hissed now rubbing his head.
“Sorry.” She mumbled.
“You should be.” Harry replied indifferently.
“Look, Potter if we’re going to work together can we at least be civil to each other?” Monique asked sincerely.
“Let me think about it…” Harry paused stopping to look at the ceiling. “No.”
“You’re absolutely unbearable, Harry Potter!” Monique yelled throwing her hands in the air.
“Me! It’s you who’s unbearable, always walking around like your queen of the bloody universe! Harry yelled back.
“That’s ridiculous! You’re the one who acts like you own the place because you’re some kind of celebrity!” Monique snapped. Monique knew she had struck a wrong cord when she saw the burning hatred in eyes.
“YOU. have. no. idea. what. it. is. like. to. be. me! It’s not as if you have your name in books or have to deal with being recognized everywhere you go!” Harry bellowed. He was truly angry. His face was red from screaming and his eyes were trying to burn a hole through her.
“I’m…I’m…” Monique started.
“DON’T YOU DARE SAY YOU’RE SORRY!” Harry yelled loud enough for McGonagall to come out of her classroom.
“That is quite enough!” McGonagall said furiously. Monique was practically in tears. Harry was the exact opposite; he was burning with hate. “What happened?” McGonagall asked.
“Nothing it was a minor argument, professor.” Harry said quickly covering for himself.
“Potter, what did you do?” McGonagall yelled.
“We were arguing! It’s not my fault she’s a prat.” Harry replied rolling his eyes.
“I am not a prat! You’re a insufferable git!” Monique snapped. She was on edge now.
“I don’t want another word out of either of you. Can we get to work now?” McGonagall said sternly. Monique went and sat in the furthest seat away from Harry. Harry sat in the farthest space away from her.
“Now I want you both to concentrate. Let all other feelings or emotions leave you. Focus on yourself. Now repeat this to me…Spirit from within bring out what I am truly supposed to be.” McGonagall said in a Trelawney tone of voice.
The students sat together surrounded by candles. The room was dimly lit only the candles made it bearable. Monique and Harry began to slowly calm down from their heated argument. “Spirit from within bring out what I am truly supposed to be,” they chanted simultaneously.
A gush of wind swept through the room. “Close your eyes and relax. Your mind does the rest.” McGonagall instructed. Both closed their eyes and slowly released all the tension they felt.
A bright stream of light shot through her head. A red animal was hiding in the bushes. A little fox came bounding out of the bush. It ran after a butterfly before looking at her with wide eyes.
It was snowing. A large thick frost was covering the ground. Out of the corner of his eye he saw a Siberian tiger crouched down on the ground. A penguin wasn’t far away. It pounced on the penguin. The penguin took off running. The tiger stopped starring at Harry for a moment before taking off running.
“Alright open your eyes.” McGonagall instructed. Both students opened their eyes. “What did you see?” McGonagall inquired.
“I saw a fox,” Monique said.
“I saw a Siberian tiger,” Harry said.
“Then that is your new form. You will become that animagus.” McGonagall explained.
“I’m surprised you weren’t a serpent.” Monique mumbled.
“Monique, shut up! Just shut up! I’m not in the mood for you being a *****!” Harry snapped.
“Twisted *******!” Monique growled.
“Look whose talking!” Harry said standing up.
“Silencio!” McGonagall yelled. Both opened their mouths to yell but no words came out. “Now, I should give both of you detention for a month but sense I know you’re absolute disdain for each other I will give you one more chance. There will be no more. The next one will be a month’s worth of detention, am I clear?” McGonagall replied calmly.
They nodded their heads in agreement. “Good, we will start becoming your animaguses next week. Finite!” McGonagall said. Monique breathed a sigh of relief. “You may leave. I don’t want to hear another word from either of you to your dormitories.” McGonagall lectured.
“Yes professor.” They mumbled.
Monique and Harry left McGonagall’s classroom and went in separate directions.
Feedback is always appreciated

a/n: For the Talent Show I used urban songs just to let you know...if the names seem unfamiliar
“How did it go last night?” Sabrina asked the next morning.
“Well my animagus is a fox.” Monique replied nonchalantly.
“That’s good.” Fred said eating his porridge.
“Oh yeah…I got in two huge arguments with Potter. He got so mad, he called me by my first name.” Monique replied sheepishly.
“Wow, what happened?” Neville asked.
“Oh nothing a little name calling, word’s exchanged…nothing serious.” Monique replied nonchalantly.
“Oh a little name calling…that was a full out brawl.” Sabrina deduced.
“How did you know?” Monique asked mocking her tone.
“Because you’re my twin.” Sabrina exclaimed.
“Of course.” Monique smiled.
“That’s a good reason.” Hermione said.
“So, we have DADA now?” George asked.
“Yup with Professor Marion.” Seamus grumbled.
“Why do you hate him so much?” Dean asked befuddled. Seamus motioned to a giggling Parvati.
“Oh someone has a crush on Parvati I see.” George said loudly.
“George.” Seamus growled. Parvati looked over at them smirking. Seamus was cherry faced.
“You’ll thank me later, mate.” George assured him seeing Parvati move closer to talk to him.
“So you two have practice later.” Ron asked eating a sausage.
“Yea and look at the time we’ll be late for DADA.” Monique said getting up.
“Oh I see. You both always like to change the subject.” Ron yelled after them.
“Yea okay.” Monique yelled back.
“Lets go, Ron” Hermione said.
“Coming, Hermione.” Ron rang.
“Wow, he almost went into song.” George said sarcastically
“That’s because he just bursts into song anytime Hermione utters his name.” Fred said in a high-pitched voice. Ron and Hermione both went scarlet this time.
“Will you two stop acting like you don’t have a crush on each other for cripe’s sake?” Sabrina said grabbing her books.
“But we-“ they began.
“Yea ok nice try though.” Oliver snickered leaving a surprised and disgruntled looking Hermione and Ron.
“It will work out well for ya’ mate” Seamus said leaving with a giggling Parvati.
“See ya.” Dean and Lavender said closely followed by Neville. Hermione opened her mouth to say something but was utterly speechless.
“Lets just go to class, Hermione.” Ron said exasperated.
“Yea and Ron are they really-“ Hermione started but Ron cut her off.
“We’ll talk about that later.” Ron said sweetly. Hermione’s face was one of complete happiness and utter shock. They were one of the last few people to enter the DADA classroom.
It was absolutely sunny and bright with all the windows open. The room had a nice breeze blowing through it. It was in a nutshell a perfect morning.
“What took you both so long?” Oliver asked Hermione and Ron as they took their seats in front of him and Sabrina.
“Nothing.” They said simultaneously.
“Yea okay.” Sabrina said.
“Speaking of missing couples where are Seamus and Parvati?” Monique whispered.
“Hmm…” Fred said pretending to be in deep thought.
“Snogging.” George announced.
“How do you know?” Fred asked.
“I saw them on my way in.” George said sitting next to Neville.
“With 1 minute before class they better hurry up.” Hermione scowled.
As if on cue Parvati and Seamus reappeared taking their seats near Dean and Lavender. Before Hermione could rip into them both Professor Marion walked through the door.
Professor Marion was indeed the new Lockhart of the school. He was clean-shaven with sparkling blue eyes and dirty blond hair. He had one small earring in his left ear and had intoxicating cologne. He wore pants and shirt with just a few buttons left open with his cloak.
“Good morning class.” He said in his usual purr. It was the same reaction from the year before. The girls swooned while the guys scowled.
“Wands out books closed. Today we’re going to be tackling NEWT level Defense Against the Dark Arts. I want to do a quick review before we start our lessons today.” Professor Marion explained. “Now who can name all the Unforgivable curses with a brief explanation of each.” He asked. Every girl’s hand shot up in the air while the boys remained silent.
“Yes, Ms. Brown.” Marion said with a smile.
“The Cruciatus curse which causes an extreme amount of pain. The Imperious curse which can control the mind of another. And…the killing curse or “Avada Kedevra.” She explained.
“Excellent 10 points to Gryffindor.” He smiled. The smile on Lavender’s face didn’t fit her face. Dean however had a scowl that would make Malfoy proud.
“Right today we’re going to cover some counter curses to Dark Arts you may one day to face. Dumbledore recommends I prepare you for the real Wizarding world not the wonderful picture the Ministry paints for you. This is a common curse used in the Dark Arts. Now I cannot teach you the actual curses because well they may fire me. It’s not in the curriculum but for the first month you will learn them, know them and will be tested on them.” Professor Marion explained in a dark tone.
The whole class was silent not out of fear but out of shear disbelief, they would learn real dark magic.
“The first curse we will tackle counteracts with the one used to create deadly poisons as “Evanasco” is not powerful enough to destroy. Let me demonstrate.” Professor Marion said pulling out a cylinder of red liquid. He pulled open the cap; the vial emitting a few sparks before simmering. “Devarium.” Professor Marion said as the vile burst into red flames before disintegrating.
“Now seeing as these toxins are very rare and difficult to make you will have three vials to test on. Once you’re done start your homework. I want an essay not 5 sentences on how the poison reacts with the body.” Professor Marion clarified.
“This is so cool we get to work with real dark magic.” Sabrina whispered to her sister.
“Yea if only I can get it on the second try.” Monique replied smugly watching Hermione’s first vial disappear in flames.
“Yea and-Oliver watch those flames.” Sabrina scolded as the vial disintegrated by her lap.
“Sorry ‘Brina.” Oliver said moving to his third vial.
“Uh huh, yes!” Sabrina exclaimed as her vial disintegrated.
“If you weren’t my sister I’d hate you right now.” Monique said curtly.
“Yea love you, too.” Sabrina said.
The class took about an hour before they had all vanished the vials. Most trading vials among themselves for extra help.
“So when do you have to be at this practice thing?” Ron asked.
“7:00pm,they expect us to finish our homework and then practice for 2 hours.” Sabrina whined.
“You’re always whining.” Monique taunted.
“Could you act like the older sibling for once?” Sabrina replied curtly. Monique promptly stuck her tongue out.
“Oliver, she’s teasing me.” Sabrina pouted playfully.
“You’re both acting like 3 year olds.” Hermione scolded.
“Don’t make us jinx you, Hermione.” Monique said mockingly.
“Ron…” Hermione pouted.
“Yes…” he replied.
“They’re threatening me.” Hermione said just as childish.
“Ok, we’re all just gonna act like babies now.” Sabrina laughed.
“Don’t you girls have to be there at 7 o’clock?” George asked.
“Yea, why?” Monique asked playing with Fred’s hands.
“It’s 6:55 now.” Neville reminded.
“Oh cripes we’re gonna be late. Monique lets go.” Sabrina replied.
“Coming baby sister.” Monique taunted.
“Shut up, see you guys later.” Sabrina said as they both rushed out of the Great Hall.
“What room is it in again?” Monique asked rushing down the corridors.
“This one that says “Talent Show Contestants”.” Sabrina replied with a sideways glance to her sister.
“I’m not that thick I just have a bad memory sometimes.” She said unconvincingly.
“Yea okay.” replied Sabrina as both girls stepped into the room. It was brightly lit with a huge stage set up in front. The stage had red curtains draped around it with a huge open in front. Several chairs were scattered around the room.
“Your names please.” A girl in all black asked.
“Monique and Sabrina Caccamo.” Monique replied.
“Ah yes, Gryffindor well you can take a seat we’re about to begin.” She answered. Both girls shrugged before taking a seat near the stage away from Pansy, Gretchen and Rita.
“Hey Monique, Sabrina.” Cho Chang yelled with her friend Marietta.
“Hey are you guys excited about the Talent Show thingy?” Sabrina asked.
“Yea I guess. I actually had to look up some names of songs for it but I think the dance part shouldn’t be so bad. What about you girls?” Cho explained.
“Oh we live in a mainly muggle neighborhood so, we pick up a few things.” replied Monique flipping mindlessly through her cd case.
“Oh whose cd is that?” Marietta asked, a bright orange cd catching her eye.
“Oh that’s Petey Pablo…love his songs.” Monique said her eyes sparkling with interest now. The 4 girls continued chatting about music when they heard a familiar drawling voice.
“As if you even have a chance of winning anyway.” Gretchen sneered.
“Oh sod off, Gretchen, you’re just jealous of people with actual talent for something besides showing off.” Monique snapped.
“Please as if you all have any talent except for being insufferable little know-it-alls.” Rita said glancing at Cho and Marietta. “And tramps.” She finished.
“No this trick didn’t.” Sabrina said standing up Cho and Marietta not far behind her.
“Alright that’s enough!” the girl shouted breaking up the minor argument that had started. “Now will you please separate yourselves so I can explain how this process is going to work.”
The Slytherins took one last look at the group of girls before returning to their seats.
“Thank you. Now I would like to welcome you all to the Talent Show. I have a couple of things I need to cover so bare with me here. Firstly, you three groups are the only ones competing against each other. Dumbledore thought it would be fair if you were competing against people in your own category. There will be a separate judge for singers, actors and comedians.”
“Secondly, each of you is required to have your proper music, attire and props for your performances. You will give me a list at the end of this period telling me what songs you’re doing, clothing and time of your dance. My name is Selena McDonald and I am a muggle-born witch if any of you were wondering. I graduated 2 years ago from Ravenclaw.” Selena explained. The girl had a pleasant smile with mounds of pretty blond ringlets in her hair.
“Is that alright for everyone?” she asked. All girls nodded in agreement. “Alright, go ahead and get started.” Selena smiled. All girls dismembered into their own groups and began conversing over songs.
“We have to do “Goodies” and “Only U”! It’s a must!” Sabrina said immediately.
“ “Vibrate” and “F***k-*-l**k” too!” Monique chimed in.
“Now you missy will also do “Drop it like its hot” because you do the moves from the video so perfectly.” Sabrina demanded.
“No I don’t. I’m good at it but it looks so dumb.” Monique gushed.
“Does not you do it better than me.” Sabrina said doing isolations with her waist.
“Yea but you will do “Only U” the dance you were born to do.” Monique challenged.
“This is what we’ll do. I’ll do one solo and you’ll do one solo. Then do three dances together.” Sabrina suggested.
“Perfect this way we can both do “Goodies”, “Freek-a-leek” and…what other song?” Monique asked confused. Sabrina shrugged her shoulders. They both sat there in deep concentration for a while.
“Got it. “Headsprung”, we can use the end for audience participation.” Monique said nonchalantly.
“You’re a genius sometimes I swear.” Sabrina said scribbling down the names of all the songs.
“Duh, now what order?” Monique thought out loud.
“Alright, “Goodies” first good intro then lets give them the sexy sounds of Ashanti with “Only U” “ Sabrina said slithering to the floor.
“Then we do “F***k-*-l**k” together. I’ll do “Drop it like its hot” to give up the Jamaican flavor. We have to represent!” Monique said doing a reggae dance.
“Then why aren’t we doing a Dominican and Native American song, mami?” Sabrina laughed.
“They will never understand it, sis.” Monique reminded.
“True, very true. Anyway grand finale will be “Headsprung” with some special effects, ooo and the videos in the back round!” Sabrina exclaimed.
“Yea and we can even make a logo. This is what I think, the first letters of our names in box letters surrounded by a heart.” Monique said drawing the logo on paper.
“Not too long only 5 min, 1 min per song depending on what lyrics we want. One last detail…outfits.” Sabrina said writing down the last of her notes.
“I want shorts, the outfits should be flashy but not ridiculous.” Monique replied back in deep concentration.
“I want a skirt. I can put cheerleader shorts under it. I think it can be black and what other color do you want?” Sabrina asked.
“I think blue but I know you like purple.” Monique said trying to compromise.
“Yea, who said our outfits had to be the same color just made the same. It can be all black but your has a blue trim while mine is lavender.” Sabrina replied scribbling on the same sheet of paper.
“Okay all we need are tops then. I need support so I’ll take the sports bra. Instead of a plain tank you can have a boustiee like the ones in that movie…I don’t remember the name but you know what I mean. Sneakers are a must though.” Monique suggested.
“I know exactly what you’re talking about.” Sabrina said slyly. “We can use our black Jordans for sneakers.” Sabrina said tearing the paper out of her notebook.
“Lemme see.” Monique said taking the paper from Sabrina.
“Uh manners.” Sabrina snapped.
“Sorry…this is perfect. How in the world is it so neat?” Monique asked in awe of her perfect handwriting.
“You really should learn how to write faster and legibly.” Sabrina said blowing on her nails.
“Don’t make me break one.” Monique hissed.
“Fine then.” She snapped.
“Yea…go and hand it in oh perfect one.” Monique said shoving the paper back in her hand.
“I will get you for that one.” Sabrina growled before walking over to Selena.
“Done already?” Rita snapped who was stretching with Gretchen to “Dip it Low”.
“You know what why don’t you go crawl back in the firewhiskey bottle you came out of.” Sabrina snapped.
“Yea and you can go **** Wood.” Rita snapped.
“Is there any stage adjustments you need?” Selena asked breaking up yet another argument.
“Yes, we need a video projector, steam projectors and automatic flame projectors. We learned how to make a video tape and effects one during a summer course on video projection.” Sabrina said turning her attention away from Rita and her snide comments.
“Excellent…yours is actually quite simple compared to theirs.” Selena said eyeing Rita teaching Pansy how to do a back bend.
“Just out of curiosity how much?” Sabrina asked curiously.
“Fireworks, steam, flames, glitter, confetti basically the works. Just a tip you may want to use spotlights to highlight certain parts of your performance and waterproof make-up for sweating. I give this hint to all my performers. Some listen others just don’t.” Selena said helpfully.
“Thanks we’ll consider that.” Sabrina said walking back to Monique.
“No problem.” Selena smiled pleasantly. The girls spent the rest of the period making up the beginnings of their dances.
“Alright ladies gather round everyone seems to be coming along well. I just need to make certain there have been no changes in song choices so, I’ll read them aloud.”
“Cho and Marietta you’re doing “Wonderful”, “Get it on the floor”, “Yeah” and “I like that” correct?” Selena asked looking at her clipboard.
“Yea, that’s our songs.” Marietta said.
“Okay, Pansy, Gretchen and Rita you’re doing “Flap your wings”, “Shake ya tailfeather”, “1,2 Step”, “Right Thurr (remix)” and “Headsprung” correct?” Selena clarified.
“Yea, that’s right.” Pansy said.
“Okay, Sabrina and Monique you’re doing “Goodies”, “Only U”, “F***k-*-l**k”, “Drop it like its hot” and “Headsprung,” correct?” Selena asked.
“Yup.” Monique said stifling a yawn.
“Wait a minute you two stole our ending!” Rita yelled.
“Please we didn’t steal anything!” Sabrina snapped.
“Two groups can do the same song as long as the dances are different and the music is in different places.” Selena added in quietly.
“Oh then that will work as long as it over there can deal with it.” Monique growled.
“Don’t Rita.” Gretchen hissed holding her arm.
“We’ll deal with it tramps.” Pansy hissed.
“Fine tricks.” Monique retorted with a yawn.
“Excellent, get some sleep and I’ll see you all Friday. I’m around on Tuesday’s as well assisting the comedians.” Selena said putting her clipboard away.
“Lets get out of here I still have at least 2 hours of Arithmacy homework left.” Sabrina said getting her cds in her bag.
“Yea same here.” Monique agreed. Both girls picked up their stuff, said their good-byes to Cho, Marietta and Selena before heading back up to the common room.
“Sugar pep.” Sabrina mumbled.
“Well you certainly could use some sleep deary.” The fat lady said as the portrait door swung open.
“Yea I would love to do that…” Sabrina said under her breath.
“Well fancy meeting you two here…hmm?” Monique said to a startled Hermione and Ron. Both looked quite cozy together sitting in one chair doing homework.
“We…were just…” Ron stuttered.
“Yea sure we’ll just do our homework upstairs.” Sabrina said walking up to the girl’s dormitory.
“Hold up…Wood and Fred want to know if everything went well.” Ron said quickly.
“Tell them it went great and Rita’s a... !” Monique yelled trudging her way up the stairs.
“Oh…I’ll tell them.” Ron yelled back.
“It’s a good thing they’re not the violent type or things with Rita would be so much worse even though I tell them to ignore her and her lackeys.” Hermione said with her head on Ron’s shoulder.
“They need to be told off. I don’t know what the bloody hell their problem is.” Ron replied.
“I guess well this homework won’t write itself now will it so, back to work.” Hermione said scribbling answers to a History of Magic worksheet.
“Why work? It can basically write itself.” Ron replied smirking.
“Ron, homework first, then snogging, its not the other…” Hermione began but was cut off by Ron kissing her.
“Okay just a little then back to work.” Hermione conceded.
“Good, I like that plan.” Ron said kissing her once again.
“My Lord here are the two books as you asked.” Bellatrix said obviously proud of her hasty work.
“Excellent only 7 more to find. Wormtail do you have any?” Voldemort sneered evilly.
“One my lord…it contains the legend.” Wormtail said trembling. Bellatrix looked absolutely appalled.
“Very good you have proven your use once more I see. I have a job for both of you to prepare. It will need to be completed by some of most trustworthy and loyal followers. I want you to call an assembly for Friday evening. I have a few things I need to discuss.” Voldemort instructed.
He had turned the chair face them. He looked purely venomous. He was a poised snake ready to pounce at the sight of its prey.
“Yes my lord.” Both said with a bow. They quickly swept out of the room leaving him alone laughing out of the pure love of revenge. The laugh was enough to shake walls and wake the dead. The Dark Lord was planning something but what?

**The next post is all ready...give me some incentive and it may be up before tomorrow **
Angel...slightly questionable really
A/N: I'm going back on vacation this saturday...so, i'll probably post a bit more this week. I'm not positive if I can find access to a computer while I'm away... I'm not one to plead so, I'm just going to ask if you are reading the story to drop some feedback constructive or not Okay...as I said I babble way too much, on with the show
“Well my dear sister I guess you have a date with destiny or should I say torture.” Monique snickered. Fred, Oliver, Monique, Sabrina, Hermione and Ron were all busy in the common room and badgering Sabrina about her lessons with Snape and Malfoy.
“Oh shut up, Monique.” Sabrina said severely agitated now.
“Alright guys leave her alone, she has enough to deal with later.” Hermione said trying to help.
“Thank you, Hermione! At least someone recognizes it!” Sabrina said out of shear exasperation.
“It’s so fun to p*** you off though.” Fred s******ed.
“Pastey.” Sabrina mumbled. Instantly Fred’s mouth was glued shut, literally.
“I don’t remember that one.” Ron said slyly.
“I made it up for that purpose.” Sabrina replied deviously.
“Are you going to take it off?” Monique asked flabbergasted.
“You can figure it out. Its in a complicated pile of notes in my drawer.” Sabrina retorted.
“Oh yea, I’m gonna find that, just tell me the countercurse.” Monique snapped.
“Easy, unreveal.” Sabrina said walking out.
“Brina!” Oliver said racing after her. She spun around at the sound of her name.
“Don’t let what they were saying back there upset you. Going to the Potions room already upset is gonna do nothing but make it easier for Malfoy to get to you.” Oliver said stroking her cheek.
“I know…I’m fine don’t worry about me.” Sabrina said taking a deep breath in.
“Okay.” Wood said giving her a soft kiss on the lips. Sabrina deepened it by putting her arm around his neck.
“I’m fine. I needed that though.” Sabrina replied sweetly.
“Okay, good luck.” Oliver said. Sabrina waved to him before walking off to the dungeons.
Malfoy was lurking around the Potions door. “Malfoy.” Sabrina said coldly.
“Caccamos.” Malfoy replied sweetly.
“Don’t you even start with me today. Lets lay down these simple rules. I won’t talk to you as long as you don’t say anything to me. This should keep us from having as little interaction as possible.” Sabrina snapped.
“No and no, I never even said anything but “hi” and you jump all over me.” Malfoy shot back.
“You’re right, sorry. I’m kind of stressed out and tired. I’ll try better, okay.” Sabrina said in a much calmer tone.
“I’m not asking you to do me any favors, Caccamos. I believe dear Wood would have a problem with that.” Malfoy smirked.
“Oh good you’re here.” Snape drawled just as Sabrina was about to retort.
“I have a list of potions made out for each of you to make. When its finished put it in these vials and label them. I will be back in 2 hours. I am expecting you both will not touch or do anything inappropriate while I’m gone.” Snape said looking from Malfoy to Sabrina.
“Yes sir.” They answered.
“Good.” Snape replied and swept out of the classroom, closing the door behind him.
“Well, I guess we’re stuck together aren’t we?” Sabrina ceded.
“Yea.” Malfoy mumbled.
Sabrina began to look over the list. “What?” she yelled.
“What’s wrong with you?” asked Malfoy gathering ingredients for his potions.
“Some of these potions take two months!” Sabrina exclaimed.
“You didn’t think this was going to be easy, right?” Malfoy said nonchalantly.
“Of course not but that’s 2 months of hardly any sleep.” Sabrina whined.
“You look cute when you whine you know.” Malfoy said deviously.
“Are you hitting on me, Malfoy?” Sabrina asked, clearly knowing the answer.
“So, what if I am.” Malfoy replied.
“Don’t is the point.” Sabrina said.
“Whatever, lets get back to work before Snape comes back.” Malfoy said ending conversation on the subject.
“Yea whatever. At least I don’t cheat on my boyfriend.” Sabrina mumbled.
“What did you say, Caccamos?” Draco asked, his voice dripping in venom.
“Nothing, except you really shouldn’t hit on other girls when you have a girlfriend.” Sabrina said mixing ingredients for one of her potions.
“I don’t have a girlfriend. I don’t care what Pansy says. She can dream all she wants. Never call me a cheater, Caccamos, you got that?” Draco snapped.
“Yea sure, I can think of a dozen more things instead.” Sabrina said adding wormwood to her potion.
“You know what, Caccamos, I don’t really care what you think I am. I can think you’re a prat.” Draco said indifferently.
“Well I am not!” Sabrina shot back.
“I suppose you think I’m a deatheater, too!” Malfoy spat.
“Well I’m sure you’re just following in daddykins footsteps!” Sabrina yelled putting the spoon down.
“I’m not a deatheater and I’d never follow in my father’s footsteps because I’m not him nor do I want to be!” Malfoy now yelled in her face.
“You’re just saying that.” Sabrina snapped.
“No, I’m not.” Malfoy said with sheer defiance in his voice.
“Really?” Sabrina asked by seeing the look of truth in his eyes.
“Yes, Caccamos, I’m not a deatheater.” Draco replied defensively. Draco went back and stirred his potion more.
“I’m sorry…” Sabrina said softly. “It’s just you…”
“Act like one. I’m cocky not a deatheater get it straight.” Malfoy smirked. Sabrina gave a small chuckle.
“Yea I already knew that.” She replied mockingly.
“I’m sure you did. Also if you tell anyone about this I will curse you until you beg for mercy.” Malfoy warned.
“Alright, I’ll never tell.” Sabrina laughed walking to the cabinet for ingredients. Malfoy crossed the room and pinned her to the wall.
“I’m serious. There are people here who are and word can get around to people who can tell…my father.” Malfoy said.
“What’s he got to do with anything?” Sabrina stuttered from being so close to him.
“He wants me to…nothing I don’t know why I’m telling you this.” Malfoy sighed.
“Malfoy, for a second you weren’t being a git don’t stop there.” Sabrina said.
“Yea that’s exactly what you would want me to do right?” Malfoy replied in disbelief.
“No but as much as this conversation is intriguing me, can you…give me so air?” Sabrina gushed.
Malfoy lowered his eyes to note how close they were to each other. Sabrina was against the wall, his hands were against the wall and their faces and bodies were inches apart. “Oh…” Malfoy said immediately backing away from her.
There was an uncomfortable silence passing between them. “Look, Draco, we should get back to work and I won’t tell anyone about you’re father or the deatheaters.” Sabrina said breaking the silence.
“Thanks, Sabrina.” Draco said. Both continued working in silence for the rest of the 2 hours.
“I think that’s all the work I can handle tonight. I’m so sleepy.” Sabrina yawned.
“Did you finish most of your homework?” Draco asked.
“Nope, still have more. Did you?” she answered.
“No not really.” Draco said nervously.
“Oh.” Sabrina said.
“Sabrina, I was thinking about how we actually didn’t kill each other tonight. Maybe we should make some kind of pact to stay civil while we’re here.” Malfoy suggested.
“For the first time ever I have to say that’s a really good idea.” Sabrina considered.
“So?” he asked.
“Yea we should.” She agreed.
“Great.” Draco said. “Well Snape should be getting back soon I think.”
“Yea…” she shrugged.
“Yes I am. I shall see you both for classes tomorrow.” Snape said quickly.
“Alright, good night professor.” Sabrina said putting away her final ingredient.
“Night professor.” Draco said. Both students walked out of the classroom feeling very different about each other.
“So, remember the pact and let’s keep this a secret so, no one asks any questions.” Sabrina recommended.
“Definitely. I have a reputation at stake.” Malfoy replied airily.
“Yea okay.” Sabrina replied rolling her eyes.
“I do missy and don’t you forget it.” Malfoy said standing over her.
“Whatever bye ferret.” Sabrina said with a wink.
“Bye.” Malfoy said. “Cutie.” He whispered.
“What did you say?” Sabrina asked confused and thinking she was hearing things.
“I didn’t’ say anything cu…Caccamos.” Malfoy slurred.
Sabrina raised her eyebrow. “Uh huh, I don’t even wanna know.” She said walking away.
Malfoy watched her for a minute before walking away. “Did he call me cutie? Yea he did. Is he…na he’s just being cocky.” Sabrina reassured herself. “But yet I wonder…”
“Slithering Serpent” Draco said walking back into the Slytherin common room.
“Hey Draco.” Pansy cooed as he sat on the nearest seat away from her. “Fine, don’t say hi.” She hissed.
“Okay, I won’t.” Malfoy retorted.
“Rita, Gretchen, I’m going to bed since someone wants to be a *******.” Pansy said storming up the stairs.
“You know what I am, too. Night guys.” Gretchen yawned walking up after Pansy.
“Yea okay.” Malfoy grumbled tending to his Arithmacy homework.
“Are you angry at us or something?” Rita asked closing his book.
“No, but I’m tired and want to get this done.” Draco said continuing to ignore her.
“What’s the matter, Draco, the Gryffindor tramp bothering you off?” Rita cackled her dark brown eyes flashing with glee.
“Yea, she did, so can you leave me be then?” he replied curtly. Rita walked over and sat in his lap. Her school uniform was in disarray with 3 buttons open on her shirt and her skirt a few inches too high.
“Rita, how many times do I go through this? You’re pretty but I don’t want you as my girlfriend.” Malfoy justified annoyed.
“Aww…I’m touched you think so.” Rita said coolly.
“Since, you’re not going to leave what do you want?” Malfoy ceded.
“What do I always want?” Rita smirked her lips playing into a sly smile. Malfoy smirked as well. She played this game with him every couple of weeks. They both were quite good at it. Draco put his hand on her cheek and brought her lips to his. Rita turned to face him sitting on his lap with one leg on each side of his. Rita and Draco kissed a bit longer.
“Thank you, Draco.” Rita said pulling away from him.
“Yea sure.” He mumbled. Rita took no offense to this and proceeded up the dormitory stairs.
“Malfoy, what were you doing?” Harry asked coming downstairs from their dormitory.
“I was doing my homework, but had to appease Rita so, she will leave me alone for a month.” Malfoy scowled, severely irritated now.
“Oh that. You know she wants you. Why not just go out with her?” Harry asked.
“Give me 2 minutes and I’ll tell you **** it.” Malfoy snapped.
“Fine then.” Harry said folding his arms across his chest.
“Done, finally. Why won’t I date her? Easy she may look good but she’s a *****.” Malfoy replied candidly.
“You’re a player.” Harry joked.
“You are, too. You play Gretchen the same way.” Malfoy laughed.
“Yea it’s true. Bloody hell, are you done yet?” Harry alleged flabbergasted. Malfoy was pulling another textbook out of his pack.
“Yea, it’s too heavy and thing would break. Use your head, Potter.” Malfoy said throwing the bag over his shoulder.
“I rather not, Malfoy.” Harry replied cheekily, walking up the dormitory stairs after him.
“You’re too bloody naughty, I swear.” Malfoy said shaking his head. Harry smirked impishly at his quite true association.

“It’s finally the weekend thank Merlin.” Sabrina said.
“Definitely. I’m not tired though I wanna practice the dance. At least finish one song. We spent half of the period talking about minor details.” Monique whined bopping up and down in the common room.
“But I don’t want to. Not to mention I promised I would spend time with Oliver.” Sabrina said not too enthusiastically.
“What’s wrong with you?” Monique asked brusquely.
“Nothing, I’m tired that’s all.” Sabrina yawned. Monique rolled her eyes.
“Look, I’m going to put my clothes on and then I’m meeting Oliver in the common room. I’ll practice with you tomorrow, deal?” Sabrina yielded.
Monique thought about it for a moment. “Deal.” She agreed.
“Good.” Sabrina said walking towards the showers.
“Hey ‘Brina.” Oliver said sweetly.
“Hey.” She replied happily. Sabrina was wearing a blue skirt with a matching jacket and pink and white tank top under it. She had on her favorite pair of white and pink Jordans.
The weather was warm and sunny. The air still wasn’t cool but wasn’t as hot and sticky as the humid summer. It was in a word a perfect day.
“So where do you want to go?” asked Oliver.
“I don’t know maybe walk around the quidditch pitch for a while.” Sabrina shrugged.
“Fine with me.” He agreed. The couple left arm in arm for the quidditch pitch. They weren’t the only couple enjoying the beautiful weather. Many couples were basking in the beautiful sunlight. Oliver’s dark blue jeans and white wife beater with a jean jacket and white sneakers looked perfect with Sabrina’s ensemble.
“You seem stressed out, baby, is something wrong?” Oliver asked as they walked through the grass in the quidditch pitch.
“Yea between homework, dance and Malfoy my head’s a little loopy. I can’t change anything and I love dance so, I’m just gonna have to be tired.” Sabrina sighed.
“Well you know if you ever need a boost you know who to call right?” Oliver said cupping her chin. Sabrina moved him towards the sides of the pitch where they couldn’t be seen. She kissed him passionately on the lips. Oliver was holding the bottom of her back while she kept her hands pressed against his chest.
Since she wasn’t very tall Oliver picked her up so that her legs were around his waist. Sabrina continued kissing him until she heard Madame Hooch yelling.
“What are you two doing? This is for playing quidditch not making out!” she yelled clearly ****** off. “Put her down Wood!” Oliver let Sabrina slide down gently to the ground.
“Move along before I tell McGonagall. At least go to the inside of the pitch not a poll, goodness think.” Madame Hooch said shaking her head.
“Wow.” Sabrina said as they were walking back towards the school.
“I don’t believe she said that. I have a divine respect for her now.” Oliver said reverently.
“So, do you want to finish what we started?” Sabrina asked with a furtive glance.
“Sure, lets find a much better spot, like the Room of Requirement.” Oliver whispered in her ear. Sabrina shivered slightly from his lascivious tone.
“Sure, but not there, not yet.” Sabrina said turning to face him directly.
“Okay, lets go to the lake then.” Oliver conceded.
“Thank you.” Sabrina said clasping her hand with his.
Monique was busying herself with listening to new songs their muggle friends sent and picking out outfits for the show.
“Hmm…this looks hot.” Monique commented to herself. Monique had on baby blue shorts and an all white halter with the number 96 in blue lettering. She had on matching blue and white sneaker boots.
“Now can I dance in this?” Monique asked herself. She put in the cd and hit the play button.
“It’s great to have muggle friends with magical parents.” Monique smirked to herself.
“Hey girls! Made a nice little mix of some new songs. They’re off the chain in the muggle world. Love ya.” Their friend Darius said.
“Hmm…lets hope they are.” Monique said lounging in a chair. An intensive upbeat blasted from the speakers.
“This is Lil Jon’s new song. Ooo featuring Lil Scrappy, I like.” Monique said bopping her head to the beat. There were a few other tracks on there but Monique was in love with one in particular.
“Lose my breath! I love this song must tell ‘Brina!” Monique squealed. Monique put the song on her portable cd player with speakers.
“Monique, where are you going?” Fred drooled in pure ecstasy from her outfit.
“Oh, to tell Sabrina about this song. I’ll be back.” She smiled before dancing out the common room.
“Did she just?” George asked coming down the stairs.
“Yea lets go.” Fred said running after her.
“We better get back before it gets dark.” Sabrina said quietly.
“Alright.” Oliver whispered and kissed her forehead. The couple walked back towards the castle when Sabrina stopped.
“What is that sound?” Sabrina thought out loud.
“Yea, what is that?” Oliver questioned utterly confused.
“Oh no…” Sabrina yelped taking off.
“Brina wait up!” Oliver yelled trying to catch up. Sabrina and Oliver starred at the sight of Monique dancing down the hallway with shorts, boots and a halter on.
“I’m not being too dramatic…it’s just how I gotta have it…” the speakers rang.
“MONIQUE! What in the bloody hell are you doing?” Sabrina yelled shutting off the speakers.
“Oh I wanted to let you listen to the new Destiny’s Child song. We have to use it.” Monique squealed.
“Okay, couldn’t it have waited because you don’t even have a lot on?” Sabrina said frustrated.
“I have on sweats and a halter.” Monique replied.
“No you don’t,” Oliver corrected.
“More like shorts and a halter.” Sabrina added.
“Oh… Well I’m here now do you wanna hear it?” Monique sighed. Sabrina shrugged as she turned on the cd player.
“Oh I like this. I really do.” Sabrina said grinning.
“Check this.” Monique said dancing. Sabrina joined in not long after. They were so good in fact a small circle was made as they laid out hot moves. A few Slytherins took their glory by the name of Rita, Pansy and Gretchen. Fred and George came in just in time for Monique to “back it up” on him.
Even Harry and Draco had to get in on the fun. Rita became heated when one of Sabrina’s snakes were a tad too close to Draco. Rita took center pulling a move out of Ciara’s 1,2 step. A battle between the 2 Gryffindor girls and the 3 Slytherin girls ensued. Each group pulling a different move trying to out dance the other.
“Time to finish this.” Monique yelled. Monique and Sabrina landed in perfect center splits then jumped back on their hands into a split in the air, arching their backs up ward in slow motion. Sabrina did the wave moving her hat towards Monique. She then passed her hat to Sabrina. Then they brought them to the center before knocking their hats off Rita and Pansy.
“You *****!” Rita yelled throwing a punch that just glazed Sabrina’s head.
“What is wrong with you?” Sabrina pushed her.
“What do you think you tramps?” Pansy snapped.
“Who do you think you’re talking to?” Monique yelled slapping Pansy dead across the face.
“**, don’t touch her!” Gretchen yelled getting in Monique’s face pushing her.
“You want to fight 2 against 1, don’t think so.” Parvati shouted.
“Oh you wanna stick up for your friends now.” Gretchen started but received a kick in the shin from Parvati before she could. It took a lot of yelling and bruises before the teachers came running. It seemed they were enjoying the show as well until a brawl arose.
By then it took Draco, Harry and Montague to restrain the Slytherins. It took Oliver, Ron, Fred, George, Seamus and Dean to restrain the 3 Gryffindor girls.
“All 6 girls detention tonight. 20 points from Slytherin and Gryffindor for your ridiculous infraction.” McGonagall barked.
“The rest of you clear out immediately. Gentlemen let go of the girls and return to your dormitories.” Snape said coldly. The 9 guys let go and walked their separate ways.
“Now you 6 can return to your dormitories after you explain why you were fighting in the middle of the school hallway.” McGonagall said hotly.
“Ask those three.” Monique growled referring to the Slytherins.
“Please those two were in the hallway being show-offs-“ Rita snapped.
“Oh right so, you had to jump right in and join us. What could have been a friendly dance battle turned into a brawl because you need to be the best at everything!” Sabrina yelled. Rita, Pansy and Gretchen never said another word.
“Fine detention revoked for you three but you ladies have some explaining to do to Dumbledore.” McGonagall replied
“Now for you three, I want no more confrontations or mini shows for the rest of the school to see, am I clear?” Snape drawled pointing one large finger towards them.
“Yes professor.” They mumbled.
“Good, go to your dormitory now.” Snape instructed.
“Hey Parvati what was-“ Monique started.
“Rita and her posse need to stop letting their entirely large egos from getting any bigger. Besides no one calls my friends tramps.” Parvati smiled.
“Thanks.” Both girls replied.
“Don’t mention it.” She said as they approached the portrait door.
***I really wanted to post this part so i did ***
“Thank Merlin its not like last night or else we’d all catch a death of a cold.” Oliver said walking onto the quidditch field with his team.
“Yea but the ground is soaked.” Sabrina said picking up her feet.
“Yes it is.” Oliver replied mounting his broom. “No matter we’ll be in the air anyway.”
“Yea okay.” Fred retorted rolling his eyes. Oliver rose high in the air as the rest of the team followed. Sabrina flew around the hoops diving down and pulling up.
“Ah…I love flying. I just feel so weightless and free up here.” She thought to herself.
“Monique release the balls!” Fred called down to her.
“Right-o!” Monique yelled opening the quidditch box. The bludgers and the snitch flew into the air swirling around. Monique threw up the quaffle as the 6th year chaser, Christina, caught it and threw it to Ron. The practice began from there.
Sabrina performed a quick Wronski feint to dive for the snitch. Ron, Ginny and Christina were passing the quaffle back and forth trying to score against Wood. Fred and George were busy keeping the bludgers away. Actually more like George was keeping the bludgers away while Fred showed off.
“Fred! Eyes off her and on the bludgers!” Oliver shouted as one nearly missed his head.
“Oh sorry dearest captain.” Fred chuckled with a slight bow.
“Fred…” Sabrina growled as a bludger soared over her head by inches.
“Okay.” Fred said taking off after it. Monique sat on the bench making sure the quaffle was never on the ground and watching the practice.
“Well look who I see. If it isn’t Caccamo and her noble posse.” Harry sneered.
“Potter go away. Don’t you see when you’re not wanted or needed?” Monique drawled, rolling her eyes.
“I was on my way to visit a friend. I would never want to see your ugly face.” Harry snapped.
“As if you would know what pretty is looking at that thing Gretchen all day.” She retorted.
“Oh I see someone must be jealous even though I’m not with her, dimwit.” Harry smirked cruelly.
“I most certainly am not. The two of you are perfect for each other: evil and ugly.” Monique responded with a false smile.
“Whore.” Harry mumbled.
“You’re right she is.” Monique said sarcastically. Harry shot her an obscene gesture before walking off towards Hagrid’s Hut. “I will never understand how he can be such a git but loves Hagrid to death.” She thought shaking her head.
“Whatever.” She mumbled, returning back to watching the practice.
“Alright, Harry it’s certainly gettin’ late. I don’t want ya gettin’ in any trouble.” Hagrid said warily.
“Thanks Hagrid.” Harry said about to put the invisibility charm on himself.
“Sumthin bothering you, Harry?” Hagrid asked seeing his glum expression.
“Nothing, I have to stay with that annoying thing tomorrow night.” Harry growled.
“She can’t be that bad. Monique’s really a nice girl.” Hagrid said, trying to make peace.
“She’s a prat, Hagrid. Just because she’s hot doesn’t mean she can keep everyone wrapped around her little finger.” Harry said quickly. Hagrid raised an eyebrow at him.
“Did I just say that?” Harry asked appalled.
“Ye sure did.” Hagrid laughed. “Ye had just called her ugly before.”
“I know but I didn’t really mean it.” Harry replied truthfully.
“I understand. Maybe you two can just call a truce while ya in the classroom. Concentrate mostly on your animagus however. Sirius, Lupin and your father will all be so proud of you.” Hagrid smiled sweetly.
“Yea I meant to write to Sirius. I’ll start one when I get back to the common room. See you later, Hagrid.” Harry waved before turning invisible.
The room was dark and damp. Black hoods and white masks stained the room. Their master stood in the middle. Wand at his side and eyes burning with hate. “My minions have you started your assignments from Friday evening?” he hissed.
“Yes we have my Lord.” Lucius said coming forward.
The Dark Lord grinned. “Excellent, I take it the little ones know what to do, Nadia?” Voldemort said turning to a girl with the eyes and hair of midnight. Her skin was a smooth as silk and a milky dark chocolate. Her tone was as cold as ice with ruthlessness close to that of Voldemort himself.
“Yes my Lord, there is also…I’ll let you handle that Lucius.” She said smoothly.
“I want to initiate my son as soon as possible.” Lucius said a hint of pride in his voice.
“Ah…very happy to hear that Lucius. I trust he will please me.” Voldemort snickered.
“He better.” Lucius mumbled.
“Rita, tell young Mr. Malfoy I need to speak with him tomorrow evening at 5:30. You will escort him personally, am I clear?” Voldemort said darkly.
“Yes master.” Rita bowed her dark eyes glowing in glee.
“Alright you’re dismissed.” Voldemort instructed. “You will be notified of your next meeting.” All of the hooded figures apparated to their final destinations leaving their master alone.
“I see you’re all back early.” Draco snickered as the group of deatheaters walked back in.
“Can it, Malfoy we have business to attend to.” Nadia snapped. Pansy, Rita, Nadia, Gretchen, Blaise, Crabbe and Goyle were all joining Draco and Harry for a chat after the meeting.
“Whatever, Nadia.” Draco sneered.
“Montague’s not around is he?” she asked her tone softening.
“No. Your precious boyfriend is off in detention with Snape as planned.” Harry retorted.
“Good.” Nadia huffed sitting on his bed.
“What news do you bring?” Draco questioned.
“Well…Voldemort’s up to some plan again. Only Ms. Nadia knows but won’t tell us.” Pansy hissed.
“That’s what happens when you have a higher rank.” She replied airily
“Oh yeah, I heard Melanie is trying to leave. She wants out.” Gretchen said nonchalantly.
“From who?” Harry asked. Melanie Daniels was a mean and bratty 7th year Slytherin witch. Red hair, blue eyes and a heart of stone were her well-known features.
“I would never think she would want to leave. Not with her attitude.” Goyle said surprised.
“Yea okay, she’s having family issues so, she in a way is being forced to leave.” Rita informed them.
“Yet again who told you?” Harry asked a little louder.
“Bellatrix…who else would know?” Gretchen answered.
“Auntie Bella does know everything. Anything else?” Draco quipped.
“Umm…Draco…” Pansy began.
“What’s going on?” he asked clearly seeing something was wrong.
“The Dark Lord wants…you, Draco. Your father requested it and he wants to initiate you tomorrow night.” Rita said just as quietly. If possible Draco went paler.
“****…” Draco said leaning his head against the bedpost.
“Sorry, Draco. He wants me to bring you to him personally, too.” Rita added glumly.
“Tough break, Malfoy.” Harry replied sympathetically.
“Yea. I was hoping he’d wait a bit longer.” Malfoy replied.
“Well it’s getting late and someone should be on prefect duty.” Nadia said looking towards Pansy.
“I know okay. Don’t have to be such a…” Pansy snapped. “Bye Draco.” She said walking out.
“Bye.” He grumbled.
“Yea, we’re gonna go too. Night, guys.” Gretchen said with Rita and Nadia following.
“You okay, Malfoy?” Harry asked, as they were getting ready for bed.
“Truthfully for once, Harry, I’m not really okay.” Draco sighed.

“So you have to meet that little tramp for animagus training?” Gretchen asked sitting on Harry’s bed.
“Yes, Gretchen.” Harry said pulling on a black sweatshirt.
“Oh, is she annoying you that badly because I can make you feel better later.” She smirked.
“No, that’s not necessary.” Harry replied calmly.
“Fine.” She huffed.
“I gotta go, okay.” Harry said ruffling a hand through his already messy hair.
“Okay, I’ll leave with you but I need something from you first.” Gretchen said blocking the door.
“You’re not going to let me leave, are you?” Harry sneered. She looked him up and down briefly. Harry rolled his eyes before kissing her on the lips.
“Oh look it’s open.” Gretchen smirked as she walked down the stairs.
“Annoying doesn’t even begin to describe her.” Harry thought on his way down.
“I’m leaving people.” Harry said on his way out.
“Alright, Rita and I are on our way out, too.” Draco sighed.
“It’ll be okay right, Nadia.” Harry said interrupting her and Montague.
“Do you mind, d***?” Nadia retorted before continuing to snog Montague.
“You’re a real b**** you know that?” Harry snapped.
“Thank you. Good luck, Draco.” Nadia replied quickly.
“My point taken.” Harry smirked slyly.
“Yea thanks. Let’s go, Rita.” Draco sighed heavily.
“You’ll be alright, Draco.” Pansy said sweetly.
“I hope you’re right, for once.” Draco replied before leaving with Harry and Rita.
“Where do you guys have to go?” Harry asked on their way to McGonagall’s classroom.
“The Dark Forest. There’s a portkey there.” Rita answered.
“Oh…” Harry trailed off. They walked the rest of the way in silence.
“You want us to wait with you for a bit.” Draco asked in an attempt to stall for time.
“No, you don’t want to be late.” Harry reminded him.
“I’ll be around the corner, okay.” Rita said knowing they wanted time alone.
“You ready, mate.” Harry asked sincerely.
“Hell no but I don’t have a choice really.” Draco said shaking off the jitters.
“No, come back in one piece and remember the occlumency Dumbledore taught you.” Harry said his eyes full of concern.
“I will. Rita was practicing with me. I never thought Dumbledore was so great until I really needed him.” Draco replied truthfully.
“Yea I guess we were all wrong about him. Good luck and be careful.” Harry said hugging his best friend.
“Alright, I’ll see you later.” Draco said before going back to meet Rita.
“Wow, I would have never imagined that he wasn’t a deatheater. He doesn’t even want to become one anyway. Not to mention, Harry really can have a heart.” Monique thought to herself. Monique had heard the entire conversation from around the corner.
“I’ll just walk out and pretend I didn’t hear anything.” Monique made up in her mind. She came out from around the corner to find her plan wouldn’t work. She couldn’t stand Harry but seeing him so distraught hurt her more.
“Hey Potter.” Monique said softly.
Harry looked up. “Oh hi.” He mumbled.
“What’s wrong?” Monique asked concerned.
“Nothing, Caccamo. Why would you care anyway?” Harry sighed.
“For some reason you don’t have your usual venom, Potter. Now what happened with Malfoy because I just saw and heard everything?” Monique asked candidly.
Harry could only open and close his mouth before giving into her. “Since, you say you know everything, you’ll understand why I’m worried. Nobody knows Malfoy like me. If you ever knew past the exterior then you would want to be his best friend, too.” Harry retorted.
“Wow, you actually do have a heart, Potter. You actually care about him.” Monique replied shocked.
“Don’t go spreading it around.” Harry grinned.
“No problem, Harry.” Monique laughed.
“Right…” Harry started. “You know you’re not so bad Monique. You really aren’t.”
“Well neither are you.” Monique agreed.
“You think we can call a truce so we don’t get detention from McGonagall?” Harry suggested.
“Yea, that’s a really good idea. I understand you don’t want anyone to know so, outside the classroom back to normal?” Monique asked tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.
Harry was almost stunned. He never really saw Monique this close. “I see why so many people like her.” He thought acknowledging her beauty.
“Harry…are you on this earth or what?” Monique giggled.
“Huh? Oh yea.” He grinned going slightly pink.
“So is that a truce?” Monique questioned once more.
“Yea, truce.” Harry agreed.
“Shake on it?” Monique asked extending her hand.
“Of course.” Harry smirked, hugging her gently.
Monique almost squeaked. He was a bit more solid than Fred in the chest area. “Must be the quidditch and… less food.” She shrugged to herself.
“Why am I thinking like that?” she thought coming out of her trance.
“Right. Are you two ready to begin?” McGonagall asked coming out of the classroom.
“Uh yea.” They replied simultaneously. McGonagall furrowed her brow before letting them into the classroom.
“Are you ready?” Rita questioned as they neared the portkey.
“How many times? I’ll never be ready but my choices are limited.” Malfoy scowled.
“Fine, touch the bush.” Rita instructed. Malfoy felt the familiar lurch in his stomach as he was transported to a large graveyard.
“Eerie looking place.” He commented to himself.
“All initiations are here.” Rita explained not far behind.
“Where is he, though?” Malfoy asked warily.
“Oh you’ll find out sooner than you want to know.” Rita retorted.
“Yes you will. Glad you could join us, Mr. Malfoy.” Voldemort hissed.
“You wanted to see me sir.” Draco bowed.
“Reverent, like your father. You already know your master.” He chuckled menacingly. Draco’s eyes never left his.
“Very well. Rita wait back in the forest on the grounds.” Voldemort demanded.
“Yes my Lord.” She complied departing by portkey leaving Draco alone with Voldemort.
“Draco, you are to repeat these words exactly. I will know if they are not true.” Voldemort instructed.
“Yes sir.” Draco bowed.
“Look me in the eye and repeat: I pledge my life to the deatheaters. I pledge my life to my master. I pledge my life to the cause. I know there is no way out. The only way out is through death itself. The deatheaters are my new and only family.” Voldemort grinned evilly.
“I pledge my life to the deatheaters. I pledge my life to my master. I pledge my life to the cause. I know there is no way out. The only way out is through death itself. The deatheaters are my new and only family.” Draco repeated expressionless.
“Very good most don’t say it correctly on their first try. Your thoughts don’t portray any dishonesty. Very well, kneel and expose your left shoulder.” Voldemort ordered.
Draco complied pulling off the jacket he had over his wifebeater. Voldemort pointed his wand at him as his eyes turned a blood red. “Morsmordre marcon!” Voldemort shouted.
In all his relentless training and years at Hogwarts, nothing could have prepared him for this kind of pain. He almost wished his shoulder would detach from his body to end the pain. It soon spread like wildfire to send pain to the tips of hair. It took about a minute before the pain subsided so, he could stand.
“So far you impress me, Draco. You can deal with pain fairly well. Your shoulder will inform you of the next meeting unless told otherwise. You may leave.” Voldemort ordered.
“Yes my Lord.” Draco complied bowing his head.
“Oh yes, one thing I forgot. You have the rank two steps above your friends. Your rank is at Nadia’s level. Do not make me regret this decision.” Voldemort said with a smirk.
“My thanks, my Lord.” Draco smirked.
“No need, go.” Voldemort demanded. Draco bowed his head once more before touching the portkey back to the forest.
“Draco, are you okay? I know it hurts.” Rita asked with some concern.
“Nothing, you could have said would have made that pain any less.” Draco waved her away.
“So what’s your rank?” she asked on their way back to the castle.
“He said my rank was as high as Nadia’s.” he replied nonchalantly. Rita’s mouth dropped open.
“You know that’s one step away from Bella and Lucius right?” Rita said in shock.
“Really? D***.” Draco shrugged.
“What did you do?” she questioned with intrigue.
“Nothing really. I got over the pain quickly. Umm…recited the pledge first try and showed complete honesty in mind.” Draco replied indifferently.
“I was actually worried about your behind when you did better than me!” she retorted.
“Yea, you could say that but believe me the pain is still there. All I want is sleep right now.” Draco assured her.
“Alright, see you in the morning. Slithering Serpent!” Rita yelled at the portrait door. Rita gave him a peck on the cheek before going to her dormitory. Draco trudged his way too bed originally intending on waiting for Harry. He slowly had to give into the pain and exhaustion his body felt.
Angel...slightly questionable really
a/n: I'm sure there won't be any cpu time and want to get some parts up so today is what i call triple play day
“Malfoy…Malfoy…Malfoy!” Harry yelled for the 5th time.
“Huh?” Malfoy yawned.
“You have to get up. You already slept through Potions.” Harry explained throwing him his robes and hair gel.
“I what?” he shouted jumping out of bed before slumping back down.
“How are you feeling?” Harry asked.
“Like someone just threw 20 bludgers at me.” Malfoy retorted trying to pull himself back up.
“You want to stay here? All the teachers know. It wouldn’t be a problem.” Harry suggested.
“I might have to because I can barely move.” He sighed, climbing back to bed.
“Okay, I’ll send Madame Pomfrey up with pain killers.” Harry said about to leave.
“No. Send Snape. He will make them stronger.” Malfoy croaked.
“You must be desperate.” Harry smirked before heading down the stairs. Not 20 minutes later did Snape stroll in the door. Draco had managed to fix his hair.
“Mr. Malfoy, you requested a pain potion?” Snape drawled.
“Yes, professor.” Malfoy answered with a pause. “Professor, he put the mark on my shoulder. Why not my wrist?”
“It is more likely the mark will be discovered by a classmate on your wrist,” answered Snape giving the potion a final stir. Malfoy merely nodded before reclining back on his pillow.
“This will work better than anything Poppy can give you. I remember the pain you went through. It will be a dull numb by tomorrow.” Snape justified, handing him a glass of the potion.
Draco took it in his hand. The potion was a white milky looking substance that did not look pleasant to the tongue. “How bad is it?” Malfoy asked with knowledge that whatever Snape gave you had to taste horrible.
“Tastes, horrible but it will work. You’ll most certainly be asleep until dinner.” Snape said pouring the liquid down his throat before he could protest. Draco unwillingly swallowed the putrid tasting stuff. His eyes immediately felt heavy and he drifted into a dreamless sleep.
“So, is he okay Harry?” Pansy asked for the millionth time that day.
“Why don’t you ask him for yourself?” Harry sneered. Harry slid over to let Draco sit down.
“Draco!” a chorus of Slytherin girls rang. “Does it hurt?” “How are you feeling?” “Do you need anything?” “Can I see it?”
“Don’t say a word, Potter.” Draco scowled when he saw his friend about to bust out laughing.
“Look at that?” The bloke was out one day and he has chain line of girls fawning over him.” Ron scowled.
“I know I don’t see girls from other houses swooning over the fool.” Seamus growled.
“Yes you do and get over it.” Lavender retorted.
“He’s evil, cocky, spiteful and still gets the girls.” Neville shook his head. Sabrina, Hermione and Monique chose not to comment and let them babble on.
“Oh give it rest will you.” Parvati snapped. All chatter on the subject ended. The look on their girlfriends’ faces said it all.
“Okay, Monique and I are going to dance now.” Sabrina declared getting up.
“That’s you wear for dance?” Oliver asked flabbergasted. Both sisters were wearing dance pants and low scoop neck tank tops.
“Yea bye baby.” Sabrina said blowing a kiss to him. She and Monique walked out of the Great Hall with more than their boyfriends’ eyes on them.
“Selena we want to make one change in our songs.” Sabrina asked.
“Sure, which one?” she replied looking for their list.
“We want to change “Goodies” to “Lose my breath”.” Sabrina replied.
“Okay.” She said making the adjustment. “You can start working now.”
“Okay, we’ve already worked enough on “F***k-a-l**k” lets start our solos.” Monique whined.
“Alright fine. They affect how we enter each part anyway. I love the beginning part where she talks to the fans.” Sabrina commented.
“Yea I like Snoop’s part but I really don’t care what part we use for that as I long as I get the beginning and the chorus.” Monique shrugged.
“Yea whateva. Do you think I should enter like she does in the video? Then I could start the dance?” Sabrina questioned in search of ideas.
“Yea, in a very sultry way and then the music starts so, you can do different poses until she starts singing.” Monique exclaimed.
“The only thing I’m worried about is that you flip you want me to do in “Headsprung”.” Sabrina shivered.
“Oh the one where you do that split thing in the air and land in a split. Then I do the back flip into a split?” Monique inquired.
“Yea! What if I fall or my skirt rips or something?” Sabrina panicked.
“You’re not I’ve seen you do it a hundred times. You won’t mess up. At least it’s not those triple back flips Greg made us do.” Monique laughed.
Sabrina shot her a menacing look. “Oh right sorry about that.” Monique apologized quietly.
“I know lets just do this and never go there again.” She warned.
“I know my bad.” Monique whispered.
Hmm…what’s her problem?
“Ouch…Pansy not my shoulder.” Draco hissed at her.
“Sorry Drackie.” She cooed.
“Look can you please stay here and not follow me.” He pleaded.
“Fine but make sure she doesn’t lay a slimy little paw on your shoulder.” She grumbled. Draco was not listening; he had already left on his way to the potion’s room.
“Hey Malfoy.” Sabrina yawned.
“Hey.” He said. “Somebody needs a nap.”
“No kidding between homework and everything else I’m exhausted.” She said sleepily.
“Well let’s hope you’re focused enough.” Draco chuckled.
“Yea for my sake, right. So…umm…why were you out that day?” Sabrina asked.
“I…I was sick.” He replied with a nervous glance to the ground.
“Oh alright.” Sabrina shrugged. Snape did not come out too long after.
“You two can go right in from now on.” He said briskly before walking out.
“Well he’s certainly in a hurry.” Sabrina chuckled.
“Isn’t he always. “ he sighed picking up rabbit’s feet.
“True.” she agreed.
“So how was your week?” he asked casually.
“Oh it was okay. Yours?” she replied.
“Horrible.” He answered automatically.
“Really what happened?” Sabrina questioned slightly concerned.
“Oh…I got sick and I was int…in a lot of trouble with…homework stuff.” He fibbed.
Sabrina raised an eyebrow. “Right…I don’t even want to know. Can you pass me the eye of newt?” she asked shaking her head and returning to her potion.
“Oh sure.” He replied mesmerized by a low cut top. So mesmerized he backed into the cabinet hitting his shoulder. “Oww! D*** it!” Draco howled.
“Are you okay?” Sabrina probed coming over to him.
“I hit my shoulder on that pointy thing!” he mustered out of pain.
“Lemme see if you’re bruised.” Sabrina said going for his shoulder.
“No! I mean really I’m okay.” Draco insisted.
“Oh you big baby stop squirming and let me see.” She joked.
“No really its okay.” He persisted but Sabrina already had a hold on his arm.
“Now lets see…no bruise only a…” she trailed off as she saw a piece of the scull.
“Look Sabrina let me explain.” Draco pleaded seeing the immediate look of distrust in her eyes.
“Save it! All that stuff was a lie! I should have never thought I could trust you, Malfoy!” she yelled.
“Sabrina! Look me in the eye and see if I’m lying. I got the mark Tuesday night. That’s why I didn’t go to classes on Wednesday. The d****d thing made so sick I could barely move. You can ask Dumbledore if you want because he knows.” He explained.
Sabrina thought about it for a moment before looking at him once more. Then she did the unthinkable. She hugged him. Draco was stunned; it was not the reaction he thought was coming to him.
“I believe you, Draco. I’m really sorry you had to get the mark.” Sabrina whispered sincerely. For some reason that seemed the most sincere pity he felt from anyone except Harry all week.
“Thanks.” He whispered back. Sabrina let go of him and walked back to her potion with the eye of newt.
“I didn’t think you’d believe me.” He spoke.
“If you were a deatheater when I slapped your shoulder before you would have been howling.” She giggled. Draco’s slight grin went to a chuckle.
“But really for some reason I just know you’re not lying to me.” She smiled.
“I’m glad I have your trust.” Draco said softly.
“I hope I have yours.” Sabrina commented.
“Don’t worry you do.” He replied smiling.
“I think you’re getting my heart, too.” He thought to himself quietly.
“So what classes do we have today?” Sabrina questioned as she ate her bacon and eggs.
“Lets see what have Charms, Arithmacy and Transfiguration.” Hermione said flipping through her book.
“Well that means Charms, History of Magic and Transfiguration for us.” Ron clarified.
“I don’t understand why you don’t give Arithmacy a chance.” Hermione challenged.
“Okay, I know Hermione. I just am not good with a lot of numbers but I can at least manage a passing grade with Binns.” Ron said looking at her innocently.
“Don’t give me that look.” Hermione warned.
“Uh oh looks like we’ll find somebody snogging later.” Seamus joked with Parvati at his side.
“Don’t start Seamus its not like you and Parvati don’t come into every class 2 minutes before it starts.” George pointed out. Both went red in the face.
“Oh stop yourselves.” Sabrina taunted.
“No need to say what you and Oliver are planning to do.” Dean trailed off.
“What are you talking about?” Sabrina asked acting flabbergasted.
“Okay I think everyone is even.” Monique concluded.
“Yea except me and poor Neville.” George said sadly.
“Oh yea, George. You like to play around not commit.” Fred shot back.
“Shut up.” He defended.
“Mmm…hmm…” Lavender hummed.
“Face it you’re caught my friend. I don’t think Christina would take it nicely anyway.” Sabrina said looking around the room.
George’s jaw dropped. “How did you know about that?”
“Oh please. It’s called locker room talk or should I say locker room…listening. No, I was not eavesdropping but it was a little difficult not to hear.” Sabrina clarified.
“Oh look at the time we’re going to be late.” George said running out of the Great Hall very quickly.
“Neville you’re a sweet guy any girl would want you, in fact I know the perfect girl.” Monique said snapping her fingers.
“Is she pretty?” Neville asked hopefully.
“Darn, I just remembered though. It’s a girl from our neighborhood but if you two met it would be magic.” Monique replied, smiling sweetly.
“Uh huh, I’ll pass.” Neville laughed.
“That was the longest day. It’s not even over; its just lunch.” Sabrina said slumping into the bench next to Oliver and Hermione.
“I found it quite interesting. The new destruction spell we learned was somewhat simple, however.” Hermione babbled in her infamous know-it-all tone.
The whole group looked at her. “Or maybe just to me.” She squeaked.
Fred was whispering something to George when you heard two screams coming from the Slytherin table…Harry and Draco had only smiled in Monique and Sabrina’s direction that day before Oliver and Fred almost cursed them senseless.
“Uh oh…looks like the Weasley twins are up to no good again.” a Ravenclaw was heard saying.
Indeed they were because where Harry and Draco had been sitting was an empty space except for an all white mouse and ferret! The entire Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw tables erupted into laughter. Hermione was struggling to keep Crookshanks from leaping from her lap. The Slytherin table was glaring daggers at their classmates. It was quite funny to see Harry running in circles around his goblet. Draco was not surprisingly twitching with anger.
After Sabrina and Monique had got out the immediate laughter someone was in for a great surprise. “Fred! What did you do to them?” Monique shouted.
“Oh nothing sweetie. We were just trying out a new drink from our line of products.” Fred said now red in the face from laughter.
“Turn them back right now!” Monique shouted in his face.
“What?!” Fred and George yelled astounded.
“You heard me turn them back before McGonagall comes and rings your necks.” She growled.
“But why they look funny?” George laughed.
“Did you hear her, George? Turn them back before McGonagall brings us all down!” Sabrina yelled.
Fred whispered to George at least before Monique cut him off. “Look, enough change them now!” Monique snapped.
“Okay, they’ll turn back on their own but there’s one thing though. This is a tester so; we don’t know what exactly is coming back. “ Fred trailed off.
“What do you mean?” Sabrina asked gingerly.
“Uh…we don’t know how much of them will come back. Meaning how much of what they were wearing is coming back…” George dragged on.
“Oh hell no! How long?” Monique bellowed so that the whole Great Hall was focused on them.
“I don’t know.” Fred shrugged nonchalantly.
“Now!” Monique yelled with an icy glare.
“We don’t know.” George said innocently.
Monique and Sabrina both drew their wands. “Don’t make us use them.” Sabrina threatened.
“2-3 minutes tops.” Fred blurted out quickly.
“Thank you.” They said getting up walking towards the Slytherin table.
“Don’t utter a word unless you want to be a f***** rabbit.” Sabrina snapped. Most Slytherins were surprised by her utmost lack of respect but at the same time were quite impressed.
Monique picked up Harry by the tail. Sabrina picked up Draco by the collar. Both girls walked out the Great Hall with them. Many spectators couldn’t help but stare at the quite unusual sight. Monique and Sabrina set the two “animals” on the floor and waited for them to transform back.
“Monique, he really does twitch.” Sabrina giggled to her sister.
“I heard that.” Draco said returning to normal.
“Cripes it’s freezing.” Harry shivered.
“The fact you’re both in bloody boxers could explain a lot.” Monique chuckled with wide eyes.
“Let me guess your bloody boyfriend and his twin decided to test some new products.” Draco scowled.
“That’s a definite.” Sabrina giggled with her eyes wandering down.
“You see something interesting?” Draco asked coyly.
“Umm…no.” she replied going pink.
“Supposedly your clothes will come back soon.” Monique said trying to break the silence.
“Oh good, one question though?” Harry asked with a sly smile.
“Sure.” Both girls shrugged.
“Why did you help us?” Harry asked inquisitively.
“Maybe we have a soft spot for you two now, okay.” Monique smiled.
“We…” Draco and Sabrina exclaimed at the same time.
“Don’t even play it off. There’s no use, both of us already know.” Harry stated simply.
“Fine.” They mumbled in sync.
“Anyway, here are your clothes.” Sabrina said pointing to the pile of clothes that just appeared.
“Thanks.” Draco said picking up his robes.
“Alright so, no one is the wiser, we’ll go back in now and you two don’t come out until we’re sitting. Deal.” Monique explained briefly.
“Deal.” Harry agreed pulling on his shirt.
“Good. Oh and one thing for both of you.” Sabrina smirked.
“What?” Draco asked slyly.
“You two must work out a lot.” She chuckled before she and Monique walked back in the Great Hall. Both boys had absolutely naughty smirks on their faces.

a/n: Well I'm back and thank you to Hermy 05 for reviewing !!!!!! Somewhat fluff but it has a nice little ending though...enjoy
“This is finally going to be a relaxing weekend.” Draco thought as he lazed about the 7th year boys’ dormitory. All the guys were having their usual talk about the girls of the school.
“Okay time for an update. Let’s start with the Slytherins. Top girl of the month.” Blaise asked.
“It’s between Nadia and Amira.” Harry yelled.
“Hey watch it!” Montague snapped.
“Nothing personal.” Draco cut in.
“Fine. I know the two people Amira likes. Sometimes I wonder if that girl is a 4th year. She looks like a 6th or 7th year!” Montague retorted with a sly smile forming.
“Who?” Draco asked clearly knowing the answer.
“You and your mini twin, Luca.” Montague sneered.
“Knew it already. I’m training Luca. He’s asking her out next week.” Draco smirked.
“D*** you.” he rejoined.
“Next in line would have to be Rita.” Crabbe interceded thinking about a pool party Malfoy threw at the Manor.
“No need for explanation there.” Goyle said facetiously.
“Malfoy, are you with us or are still thinking about that night with Amira?” Harry questioned with a devious look.
“You weren’t supposed to say that.” He groaned at all the smirks he was getting.
“What’s he talking about, Malfoy?” Montague asked with some intrigue.
“Oh nothing. Harry obviously wasn’t thinking straight.” Malfoy said quite quickly.
“Sure he wasn’t mate…start talking. We know the list anyway.” Blaise drawled.
“She wanted help with something and I helped.” Malfoy divulged.
“Yea okay. We know you better than that, Malfoy.” Montague countered.
“Fine, I’ll tell you.” Malfoy began.
“Hey Draco, can you help me with something?” Amira asked her brown eyes sparkling.
“What could you ever need help with?” Draco smirked furtively.
“Funny. Anyways, you know Luca right?” Amira probed.
“Yea.” Draco replied sitting on the leather sofa.
“Well I need some help with him and you’re pretty good friends with him. I know you’re thinking I can get just about any guy I want but I don’t want to find myself in an…uncomfortable situation again.” explained Amira.
“Well what happened?” asked Draco.
“Not important, just stuff. I just need to know would Luca do anything like…” she trailed off.
“Not if you didn’t want to. He’s not that type of person.” Draco clarified.
“What about you?” Amira asked with a slight glisten in her eye.
“I’d do whatever you want me to do.” Draco returned with a devious smirk.
“So, what exactly do you think Luca would do?” Amira asked with a wink. Draco’s blood started to rush to all the wrong places.
“Are you okay?” she questioned putting a hand on his. Draco gave her a look of utmost desire.
“If you won’t tell me then can you at least show me?” she asked with facetious smile.
Draco gave her a peck on the lips. “Does that tell you anything?” he asked grinning.
“A little.” She leered. Draco kissed her again…
“So what happened?” Crabbe asked waiting for more info.
“That’s it…really.” Draco replied with a smirk.
“You!” Blaise shouted.
“No, please of course not. Besides her older cousins are Sabrina and Monique Caccamo.” Draco sneered.
“Why do they have to be in Gryffindor?” Blaise groaned.
“They’re annoying as hell but so gorgeous.” Goyle laughed.
“Yea as someone was so keen to point out on the train.” Harry said idly.
“Shut up! I know I heard you telling me of your recent revelations regarding her sister.” Draco shot back, with a grin.
“Yea but they’re with the Weasel and the Quidditch tyrant.” Montague reminded them all. Harry and Draco exchanged knowing glances. Lucky for them no one noticed.
“She’s okay in this animagus thing but what she wears sometimes is a bit distracting.” Harry laughed.
“Yea…d***!” Draco yelled grabbing his shoulder in agony.
“I take it you have to leave now.” Crabbe said pointing out the obvious.
“Right. I’ll see you all later then. Tell the girls where I am.” Draco sighed heavily. He was getting disheartened already about being considered a follower. The pain had just begun however…

“You called me, my Lord.” Draco said reverently.
“Yes. Today your orders will come from a different source. This comes as a test of obedience from your higher ranking deatheaters.” Voldemort replied cruelly. Out of the shadows appeared a figure with looks similar to his own. A sneer he knew well.
“Son, are you ready for you first task?” Lucius snickered, with shadows covering his face. Draco returned his sneer.
“Yes, father. What is the task?” he said cockily.
“You are to torture the person behind this door until they reveal the location of book. They will deny knowledge of the location but you must persuade them until death. Do you comprehend?” drawled Lucius in a cold tone.
In a voice unlike his own he replied, “As you wish.” He entered the room, wand in hand, eyes piercing and a cruel smirk. Voldemort, Lucius and Bellatrix hovered by the door.
“I see they sent…a new interrogator.” The girl began in a sarcastic tone. Draco somehow changed her sarcasm to awe.
“Well is there something you wish to tell me?” Draco asked indifferently.
“No, as I told the rest of you people I have no idea what you’re talking about.” The girl asserted.
“Well let’s try and negotiate first. You tell me and I’ll do something for you.” Draco purred in her ear. She clearly shivered.
“Charm, I see is a family trait.” Voldemort sneered.
“Uh, what kind of something?” she questioned with some intrigue. Malfoy shot her a furtive glance.
“Uh…maybe that could work.” She said quietly.
“First tell me.” Draco demanded, his tone quickly changing to an icy one.
“You know what no one that charming can truly be sincere.” She said defiantly.
“You’re grave.” Draco shrugged nonchalantly. “Crucio.” The pain was immense. The shocker was how cool the words were said. Voldemort was becoming more impressed by the minute.
“You b******!” she yelled.
“Now will you tell me?” Draco growled.
“No!” she shouted.
“Crucio timori” Draco said. Lucius’ jaw dropped. That was an advanced form of the Crutiatus curse. He for one had never taught him.
“Each time you disobey me that pain will return.” explained Draco.
“**** you.” she said angrily. She screamed yet again in agony. “I don’t know!” she cried.
“Did you know that this curse is also like a lie detector, too? If you’re in pain then you’re lying.” Draco drawled leaning against a wall as she screamed yet again. She was looking haggard now; the pain was too intense.
“Stop lying and tell me! Unless you want to die.” Draco shouted, losing his patience.
“Why don’t you read my mind and you’ll find out?” she croaked.
“You’re death wish.” Draco snapped. She let out one final scream before saying no more. He turned to face his aunt, father and master.
“It’s in the Alps, directly in the center in a black box. It’s not well hidden.” Draco reported.
“I don’t say this often but a bloody brilliant job I must say. You impress me, Malfoy. You will be notified again when you’re needed.” Voldemort complimented before strolling out of the room.
“Good work, Draco. You keep this up and your rank will be as high as ours.” Bellatrix said with a wink.
“Draco, I must say it. I am quite pleased with you. You are for once living up to my expectations.” Lucius drawled.
“Thank you, father.” Draco repeated as if mechanically.
“I’m also very pr…pr…proud of you.” Lucius said almost choking on the words. Draco was too stunned to speak. Never had he heard those words spoken to him in his life even by a teacher. It tore him up inside but he managed to maintain composure.
“Thanks, father.” Draco replied flabbergasted. Lucius did something he’d only done when Draco was a child; he hugged them. Draco was so taken aback the wind was knocked out of him. Lucius let go quickly before walking out in the direction of Voldemort leaving Draco alone with his thoughts.
He walked in almost zombie like. The whole common room went still. They knew where he had been. “How did it go?” Harry asked tentatively.
“I don’t want to talk about it.” Draco sighed looking in a deep space. He was sitting in an armchair close to the fire hoping the world would just leave him be.
“Draco, are you going to be okay?” Gretchen asked gingerly.
“Yea right.” He grumbled.
“What did you have to do?” Blaise asked with a tinge of concern.
“Oh he made me torture and kill someone.” Malfoy said nonchalantly. Every jaw dropped.
“Exactly now before you begin your long lines of pity I’m going for a walk. Don’t come after me unless you want to be cursed out.” Malfoy snapped before storming out of the room.
“Let him go, there’s nothing we can do for him.” Harry sighed heavily. But maybe someone else could…
“I never realized how I never spend any time alone.” Sabrina thought out loud. She was walking down the corridors near the dungeons.
“Monique is off somewhere making up with Fred. Oliver has homework to finish.” She continued.
“What could be better than this?” she said before someone nearly knocked her down.
“Oh you arrogant little…oh sorry Draco nearly lost my temper.” Sabrina laughed as he pulled her off the ground.
“Sorry, it’s nothing personal.” He sighed.
“Are you okay? You were running like the devil was after you.” She inquired with a slight grin.
“Fine.” Draco mumbled trying to dash off.
“Uh uh…something’s seriously wrong with you and I won’t leave you alone until you tell me.” She stated defiantly.
“Too many people could hear.” He countered trying to back away unsuccessfully.
“Problem solved. Let me show you something.” She said taking his hand. Sabrina led him down a pathway to a small painting. She pressed her hand against a stone and a marble staircase emerged. Leading the way up, she took him to a large lounge. It was painted a deep red with violet satin curtains draped from the ceiling. Four large black chairs with fluffy cushions were there.
“Where did you learn about this place?” Draco asked in awe.
“Oh Fred told me about it. He and George know about just every nook and cranny in this place. It’s sound proof so, no one can hear you.” Sabrina explained lighting the fireplace.
“Oh.” was all Draco could say.
“So, what’s wrong?” she asked again.
“Do you want the long or short version?” he sighed as he sat in the armchair adjacent from her.
“Lets go with the long because I can tell you need to get it all out.” Sabrina replied with apprehension.
Draco began from when he got the order to when he ran out of the common room leaving no detail astray.
“Wow. I see why you’re so confused. I would be, too.” She said after a long silence.
“I really am. I’ve always wanted my father to be proud of me but today it was all for the wrong reasons. I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me but for the girl that had to die. It’s my fault! I killed her! I hate myself for it.” He yelled his eyes growing red and puffy.
“Draco, listen to me. Yes you did kill her. Yes its something you will have to deal with down the line. No it’s not your fault. You were made to do this job and be that way. Never hate yourself. Once you hate yourself then there is nothing left for you to live for. I know you want your father’s approval any person does.” She explained truthfully.
“The question is does his praise and approval take precedent over your own beliefs?” Sabrina questioned. Draco looked into her eyes. He felt a feeling he never knew before. He didn’t know it then but would know it later. Sabrina sat in front of him.
“I don’t know.” He cried out.
“That’s okay. You don’t have to know now. Everyone wants answers then but don’t realize it takes time to reveal itself. The need to know your parents even for a second…” she said wiping a tear threatening to fall.
“How do you know so well?” Draco inquired.
“Because I really never knew my parents. They died not long after Monique and I were born.” She sniffed.
“Oh right I remember now.” Draco replied quietly. “What happened?”
Sabrina took a deep breath before reliving the tale. “They were aurors. ‘Nique and I were at gran’s house. They were coming back in the car when it crashed into a light pole. The electricity ignited the car. When the police came, the entire car along with our parents was burned to ashes. They…barely recognized the bodies!” she sobbed even harder. He tried in an attempt to soothe her but nothing helped.
“It’s okay, ‘Brina.” Draco said in a hushed voice, rocking her back and forth.
“I’ll be fine. This isn’t about me anyway. Talking about it gets to me sometimes.” she sniffed, wiping a tear away.
“Looks like we both have our issues.” Draco joked wiping a tear away from her cheek. She smiled a little before turning away.
“What’s wrong?” he asked seeing her agitation.
“Nothing, just me worrying about something. Anyway, I’m sure given some time everything will work itself out.” Sabrina reassured him.
“Yea…” he said looking at his watch.
“Wow, it’s already 4o’clock. We’ve been talking for an hour.” Sabrina replied.
“Harry probably is looking for me. I’ll see you around then?” Draco asked nervously.
“Yea sure.” Sabrina replied getting up.
“Yea, thanks.” Draco said as they made their way down the stairs.
“For what?” she questioned.
“For actually understanding me, I guess.” He replied with a laugh.
“Well, if you really get desperate owl me and I’ll gladly reply.” She replied with a wink.
“Yea that could work. This way we could talk without suspicion.” Draco added.
“Okay…I see some 4th years coming.” Sabrina said quickly.
“I hate you!”
“I hate you more!” Draco yelled quickly.
“Just leave me alone before I curse you senseless!” Sabrina yelled and stormed off in the direction of the Gryffindor common room.
Draco went in the opposite direction. Both had a slight smirk on their faces.
“Where were you all day?” Oliver questioned as Sabrina walked in the common room.
“Walking.” Sabrina shrugged sitting on the sofa.
“Uh huh, a likely story.” Oliver whispered in her ear behind her.
“Cripes, are you trying to give me a bloody heart attack!” Sabrina yelled jumping up out of the chair.
“Sorry, my bad. Never again unless you want me to.” Oliver purred holding her waist.
“Yea that could be an exception.” She agreed kissing his lips.
“Aww! How cute!” Monique taunted coming in hand in hand with Fred.
“Oh really, where have you been all this time? Hmm…” Sabrina challenged folding her arms.
“Making up.” Fred replied nonchalantly.
“Oh that’s good. Then you missy have no business talking.” Sabrina teased painting at her.
“Okay…Oh I think its going to be a good weather tomorrow we should catch a few rays.” Monique suggested.
“Yea and maybe a dip, too.” Sabrina exclaimed beginning to like the idea.
“We need to find suits.” Monique replied eagerly.
“Absolutely! Guys we’ll see you later.” Sabrina agreed waving.
“Yup later.” Monique said walking up the stairs with her sister.
“Did they say something about swimsuits?” Fred questioned.
“Yea they did.” Oliver replied with interest.
“Don’t try on anything without me!” Fred yelled running up the stairs.
“5…4…3…2…1” Oliver counted as Fred came sprawling back down the stairs. “You never learn.”
“You mean I always forget.” Fred said rubbing his elbow.
“Exactly.” Oliver snickered.

a/n: It's kind of fluffy but I needed something to break up a few scenes...Enjoy
The next day all the 7th year Gryffindor girls woke up bright and early for a day of basking in the sun.
“The only downside is the Slytherins have quidditch practice today.” Parvati scowled.
“Oh I would have to say that’s a perk.” Monique blurted out. Hermione, Parvati, Lavender and Ginny stared at her with blank looks.
“Well I think so. Besides they’ll be flying not paying any attention to us.” She said confidently with a large grin.
“Don’t worry about them our cousin is coming with us and the guys are downstairs so, they’ll be tempted to join us eventually.” Sabrina reminded with a sly smirk.
“That’s true.” Lavender agreed taking out her swimsuit.
“Yea I guess especially with you two and your cousin, Amira there.” Hermione quipped. She was the only one of the girls who knew about their friendship. Parvati and Lavender would let it slip. The sisters weren’t that close with Ginny.
“Okay, lets stop worrying and get ready then.” Sabrina said quickly changing the subject.
“Uh huh…why would the Slytherins not bother us because of you two?” Parvati questioned with a glint in her eye.
“No reason. They’ve finally come to understand not to mess with us unless they want to be a stuffed toy or animal like Dr…Malfoy and Potter.” Monique slurred.
“Right…we’ll trust you on that one.” Ginny laughed.
“Thank you now lets get out of here.” Sabrina insisted grabbing her suit top.
“So, what are the girls doing today?” Dean asked as all the Gryffindor guys assembled in the common room.
“Apparently going swimming.” Oliver grumbled.
“You act like that’s a bad thing.” Fred said flabbergasted.
“Yea but I’m not sure if we’re invited.” Seamus retorted.
“Oh but why not?” Parvati asked coming downstairs in a tankini with a dip in the middle.
“Don’t look so surprised.” Hermione giggled with Lavender and Ginny not far behind her. Hermione’s suit was a large bandana that tied in the back with bikini bottoms. Lavender’s was a bandu with shorts. Ginny had on a tie bikini.
“You guys can come if you want.” Monique smirked with Sabrina by her side. Monique’s suit was an off the shoulder top that stopped just above her midriff with bikini bottoms. Sabrina had a on a shapely halter that tied in the center of her back with shorts that criss-crossed on the side holding all the material together. All of the suits and cover-ups were an assortment of pink, white, baby blue and silver. The 7 guys in the room were drooling.
“Are you going to drool or join us?” Lavender retorted.
“Both.” Dean squeaked.
“Whatever, we’ll be at the lake. When you come out of your trances.” Sabrina said rolling her eyes. The girls walked out of the common room knowing they would be running upstairs as soon as they left.
“So where’s your cousin?” Ginny asked.
“Right here.” Amira said.
“Hey Mira.” Sabrina and Monique rang hugging their younger cousin. Amira was wearing a black and white bikini with a sheer sarong tied around her waist highlighting every curve in her petite body. Amira was about 5’3 and Sabrina’s complexion with brown eyes and light brown hair. She, Monique and Sabrina all wore the same hairstyle: soft natural curls.
“Amira, you know our friends don’t you?” Monique questioned.
“I know Granger.” She replied.
“Oh yea. This is Parvati, Lavender and Ginny.” Sabrina introduced.
“Hi.” Amira smiled sweetly.
“Are the Slytherins still on the quidditch field?” Hermione asked.
“Of course. Montague’s a slave driver half the time. I was going to go for the team but the only other girl is Nadia and I don’t need her attitude.” Amira replied nonchalantly.
“Who’s Nadia?” Lavender asked, obviously having not gone to many quidditch games.
“B****, is all you really want to know.” Amira grumbled. “She’s Montague’s girlfriend, usually stays to herself. She hangs with Rita, Pansy and Gretchen sometimes. They got her detention along with the rest of them for turning some Ravenclaw named Greenlee into a toad or something. All I know is it was something stupid.”
“Amira, our little gossip.” Sabrina chuckled.
“Shut up…” she smirked.
“I don’t have to.” Sabrina sneered.
“Sure I could just have Monique remind us of last summer in the Dominican Republic.” Amira trailed off.
“Don’t put me in this.” Monique leered.
“You two scare us sometimes.” Parvati said shaking her head as they continued toward the lake.
“Why?” they asked.
“You act so Slytherin like sometimes.” She shivered.
“It’s in the family.” All three girls replied. The rest of the Gryffindors laughed.
“Uh oh…quidditch field 3 o’clock.” Ginny sighed.
“Let me handle them. No need to argue.” Amira mumbled.
“How could Nadia get detention when our game is next month?” Montague snapped.
“She’s your girl, you ask.” Goyle retorted.
“Sod off.” he snapped.
“Annoying prick.” Goyle countered.
“Enough!” Harry yelled shutting them both up. The entire team mounted and took off the ground after taking a water break when they were slightly distracted.
“D***…” Blaise drawled seeing the group of girls approaching.
“Potter.” Draco gulped.
“I see them. It’s a little hard not to and with Amira.” Harry panted. All of the guys couldn’t help but stare even if all but one was a Gryffindor.
“Hey Malfoy!” Amira yelled.
“Hey.” He choked out his eyes wanting to pop out of his head.
“Where are you going?” Harry asked.
“The lake.” Monique called up.
“See you later.” Sabrina rang as they all walked past the pitch. After their eyes had become part of their heads and not permanently glued on something else they attempted to start playing again.
“Not one insult.” Hermione commented.
“Their minds were building up fantasies not insults.” Sabrina giggled.
“Yea and what’s up between you and Malfoy, Amira?” Parvati questioned.
“Malfoy? Oh nothing.” She blushed.
“Then why are you blushing?” Lavender asked with a grin.
“Something happened one night but nothing else. I like Luca anyways. It’s this one next to me who likes Draco.” She sneered, pointing towards Sabrina.
“Are you kidding me?” replied an astounded Sabrina. Parvati, Lavender, Ginny and Hermione all looked towards her.
“I don’t.” she protested, scowling at her cousin.
“Amira please. You made out with Malfoy and flirt with him on a weekly basis.” Monique snapped defending her sister.
“Okay you win.” Amira grinned.
“Amira, how can you even stand to be around him?” Parvati asked with a frown.
“He’s not a git all the time. Really and neither is Harry. They’re both actually quite sweet. I know it sounds ridiculous but they are.” Amira explained honestly.
“I can see, Harry. Malfoy is another story.” Hermione replied in a matter of fact tone. Amira glanced at her two older cousins.
“You have to see it to believe it I guess. Lets get off that topic and on the one of SPF 15 or 10?” Amira giggled, holding up two bottles.
“I need 10!” Hermione and Ginny said simultaneously.
Feedback is very appreciated
Angel...slightly questionable really
a/n: Alright this is the end of the fluff...
A couple of hours later they were all basking in the sun while Oliver, Fred, George, Dean, Ron, Seamus and Neville flexed their newfound muscles and enjoyed the water. All the girls couldn’t help but watch over their sunglasses at the very tantalizing sight.
Monique was lazing in the sun when all of a sudden she felt a cold splash of water hit her head. “****!”she yelled throwing off her sunglasses only to see Fred and George laughing their heads off.
“Fred!” she screamed chasing him into the lake. Amira and Lavender were doubled over with laughter while Parvati and Ginny merely smirked behind their fashion magazines. Hermione and Sabrina on the other hand were chasing Ron and Oliver for putting a bug in their hair.
“They haven’t returned yet which, I find quite interesting.” Amira commented to Lavender.
“Yea, I wonder where they rest of they guys are?” Lavender questioned looking over her shoulder.
“Probably scheming about someway to bother us.” Amira smirked before yelling from someone tickling the mess out of her.
“I guess we’re the only ones left that are sane.” Parvati leered seeing Lavender and Amira being “tortured” by Dean and George.
“I think the interesting thing is how George is tickling, Amira. Take a look.” Ginny leered pointing her head in that direction. George was doing much less tickling and much more massaging as far as the eye could see.
“The real question is where are Neville and Seamus?” Parvati whispered to Ginny.
“Yea, I think sadly we’re next!” Ginny screamed as she was being lifted from the chair and carried to the lake. Seamus and Neville made a surprise attack plunging them all into the cold, crisp water.
“Hey…find another spot you four this is ours.” Monique sneered as she and Fred resurfaced.
“Oh so that’s where you’ve been.” Seamus replied.
“Okay, lets go Seamus.” Parvati said.
“Have fun mates.” Seamus joked as he and Parvati headed back for shore.
“So lets find a better spot, shall we.” Seamus suggested with a furtive glance towards her.
“Wonderful idea.” she agreed heading back to the blanket to only find it occupied by…”George! Amira!” Parvati yelled incredibly surprised. They both decided to ignore them and continue snogging.
“I guess we have to find somewhere else.” Parvati laughed as they departed once again.
“This is getting ridiculous.” Seamus complained now finding Dean and Lavender accompanied by Ron and Hermione.
“Oh hey guys.” Dean greeted quickly before paying them no more attention.
“Well fine.” Parvati scowled as they continued towards the bushes.
“We’re missing two people.” Seamus groaned.
“Not anymore.” Parvati corrected going in the other direction.
“You know what Parvati?” Seamus said looking her up and down.
“What?” she answered.
“Screw this.” He said pushing her in the sand. It was a little after two and the Slytherin quidditch team had decided to call it quits from distractions.
“Why can’t you guys stay longer?” Monique pouted as all the 7 guys set off back to the common room.
“Sorry but unlike you girls who finish their homework, we don’t.” Ron retorted. Hermione was about to give them all a long speech about doing your homework and time management but Sabrina stopped her mid-sentence.
“Don’t Hermione, they never listen now do they?” she rationalized.
“That is true so, we’re going to run before she changes her mind.” George said quickly as they all ran back to the castle.
“Oh well.” Monique laughed as they sat down chatting about the Talent Show among other things.
“Uh oh, I see somebody coming back.” Parvati laughed seeing 7 figures walking towards them. Sabrina caught a flash of platinum blond hair signaling that it was not the Gryffindors.
“Oh my word, Luca’s coming.” Amira said in shock swiftly turning around. Monique saw a 5’4 figure with blond hair, green eyes and an amazing resemblance to Draco with them.
“Oh so, that’s Luca, Amira?” Monique snickered.
“Yea.” She squeaked.
“Bloody hell you must really like him if you’re getting nervous.” Sabrina remarked.
“No worries, Amira. If my brother likes you, then he most certainly will. Just be confident like you always are.” Ginny said kindly.
“Thanks. The whole quidditch team is coming, however. Give them a chance before you blow them off. You may actually come to find some of them are okay. I’m not asking you to like them but try to have a civil conversation.” Amira beseeched them.
Parvati, Lavender, Hermione and Ginny looked at each other and nodded in compliance. “Well look who it is.” Draco snickered.
“Yea so, what do you want?” Sabrina asked with a smile.
“Nothing right now.” He replied with a wink.
“Hey Amira.” Luca said shyly.
“Hi.” She replied. “You wanna go talk somewhere?”
Luca glanced up at Malfoy who motioned for him to go.
“Sure.” He agreed leaving with her.
“Look we have a bone to pick with you two so, can we talk?” Monique asked snappishly motioning towards Harry and Draco.
“Fine but no wands.” Harry approved.
“Does it look like I have one on me?” Monique and Sabrina retorted. Harry and Draco looked them up and down.
“No.” they smirked.
“Good so, lets go.” Sabrina said getting up with Monique. Harry and Draco shrugged and followed.
“Shall we converse then?” Montague smirked to the rest of the girls.
“It looks like they’re getting along.” Sabrina commented optimistically.
“That meaning no one has been cursed yet.” Monique jeered.
“Your right. Maybe there is hope then.” Harry laughed.
“Yea so, how’s the Talent Show coming along? The drama queens won’t tell us anything.” Draco asked with intrigue.
“It’s going really well in fact. We have finished a couple of dances, ordered the costumes and stuff.” Sabrina replied cheerfully.
“Will you tell us what you’re planning?” Draco asked.
“No, you’ll just have to be surprised like everybody else.” Sabrina giggled pointing her finger in his chest.
“Don’t ask me. I’ll tell you the exact same thing.” Monique said sarcastically.
“It’s getting cold out here.” Sabrina said shivering.
“Here take this.” Draco suggested handing her his shirt.
“No that’s okay, I have a cover up.” She replied putting on the dress she brought with her. Monique was already wearing hers. “Besides then you’ll be cold.”
“I’ll be fine.” Draco smiled grabbing her hand. Sabrina looked down at it then continued walking.
“So, how angry do you think Oliver and Fred would be if they found you two with us?” Harry questioned with a sneer.
“Oh furious would be the answer.” Monique laughed accidentally brushing his chest. Harry gave her a furtive glance.
“We’re about to find out.” Sabrina groaned seeing them coming in the distance and releasing Draco’s hand.
“Okay, what are we going to say?” Monique asked in a bit of a panic.
“I don’t know pick something.” Harry replied rapidly. Oliver and Fred were approaching fast.
“Uh…Draco.” Sabrina questioned looking towards him for ideas.
“Improvise and nothing personal.” Draco warned right away.
“Same here.” The other three agreed.
“Say something now.” Monique squeaked.
“You pompous jerk! It’s my **** and you don’t need to look at it!” Sabrina yelled promptly.
“Baby, they’re my eyes and I choose to look at your *** with them.” Draco retorted with a grin.
“Yea okay, Malfoy…” Monique snapped folding her arms across her chest. Harry’s eyes involuntarily wondered to her chest. “Something interest you Potter?”
“Maybe.” Harry smirked to Draco.
“Bloody hell, can you two be anymore conceited?” Sabrina yelled with an exasperated sigh.
“Yes sadly we can be.” Draco said simply.
“Hey girls.” Oliver said, calmly approaching the scene with Fred.
“Hi.” They smiled striding over to them.
“You ready to go back to the common room?” Fred asked clearly ignoring the presence of the two Slytherin boys.
“Yes we are. I think we’ve been badgered and hit on enough in one day.” Monique scoffed at Harry and Draco.
“Really, I thought you both enjoyed it.” Draco sneered maliciously.
“Don’t flatter yourselves.” Sabrina snapped rolling her eyes and taking a hold of Oliver’s hand.
“Oh we don’t.” Harry replied as they began to walk away. “You do.”
“Shut up!” Monique yelled back.
Hermione, Parvati, Lavender and Ginny had already made their way back to the common room. Amira had left with Luca and the rest of the Slytherins. Harry and Draco they gave them a final wink as the girls gave them a quick “thumbs up” sign before joining their comrades.
**alright next post will be up in about an hour or so...**
Angel...slightly questionable really
a/n: A little longer than an hour but I had to go out. Well this will be the last post for about a week, I start school tomorrow. After that my posts will probably become every other week from my school and dance schedules....anywho. ..enjoy
The next day the Slytherins and Gryffindors sat on opposite sides of the room waiting for double DADA with Professor Marion.
“Why him? I mean I would have taken Binns first thing in the morning.” Fred yawned overdramatically.
“I second that.” Ron agreed yawning and putting his head back down on the desk.
“Oh please you two, that’s only because you’ll sleep the entire time in Binns class.” Monique scoffed as Fred rested his head on her shoulder.
“You know me well.” He smirked pretending to go to sleep.
“He’ll never learn.” Hermione scowled, stroking Ron’s ginger hair.
“Don’t stress it Hermione. There are brains up there.” George taunted.
“Not to mention, you two will be up to your necks in galleons* once that shop takes off.” Seamus smirked.
“C’mon, ‘Mione you have to admit their inventions are bloody brilliant.” Ron encouraged turning to face her.
“I have told you my opinion before. They are fantastic but when used to make a person grow to 2x their normal size it’s not a proper use.” She explained matter of factly.
“Here we go again.” Sabrina and Oliver said rolling their eyes.
George and a now fully awake Fred were both trying to convince Hermione of all the practical uses of their products but were interrupted when Professor Marion entered.
“Good morning, class. Today, we’re going to try something a tad different. I believe this will be chaos but Dumbledore wishes it.” Professor Marion greeted with a large grin. It was as always the same reaction.
“Now first hear the assignment. I want you and a partner to design a small defense weapon using what you have previously learned in this class and other years. Sadly, they will be destroyed after this little project as a safety measure but you will get a grade on them.” Marion explained. This idea was met with great excitement even from some of the boys.
“I’m glad you like the idea but here’s the catch. Your partners will be from another house.” he said flinching. All the students groaned heavily.
“I’ll pick your partner. The only thing I ask is don’t kill each other with the weapon.” he warned lightheartedly. Several Slytherins snickered.
“Anyway let the fun begin.” Marion said in hope to revive his very irritated class.
“So here are the parings. Please wait until I have read all the names to move.” He said picking up a scroll. “Oliver Wood and Rita Tyler.”
Sabrina went absolutely livid. “Arrogant prat.” She mumbled as Oliver sat there mumbling a list of profanities.
“Fred and George Weasley and Gretchen Marielle.” Now Monique didn’t take the news quietly.
“What the…?” she snarled as Fred and George saida list of profanities.
“Uh hem. Please refrain from that language.” Marion scolded. The 3 just scowled.
“Dean Thomas and Pansy Parkinson.”
“What?” Dean, Lavender and Pansy yelled.
“Yes and Lavender why are you yelling?” Marion smirked. Not another word was heard on the subject.
“Seamus Finnegan and Vincent Crabbe.” Seamus just rested his now aching head on Parvati’s shoulder.
“Neville Longbottom and Melanie Daniels.” Neville turned and saw a pale-faced red head scowling.
“Ronald Weasley and Nadia Dévil”
“****.” Hermione grumbled remembering a few stories of Nadia. Ron was astonished, half because Hermione had cursed and whom Nadia was together with.
“Parvati Patil and Blaise Zambini.” Parvati only rested her head on Seamus from the large headache that was forming.
“Lavender Brown and Gregory Goyle.” Now it was Dean’s turn to be livid.
“Hermione Granger and hmm…Montague.” Marion said puzzled over the 1st name. Everyone gasped including Hermione and Montague.
“Oh that was just perfectly done.” Montague snarled. Sabrina groaned knowing the last 4 people not chosen. Truthfully so did everybody else.
“Sabrina Caccamo and Draco Malfoy.”
“Aww ****.” both growled.
“Language please. Monique Caccamo and Harry Potter.”
“What the heck?” both yelled.
“This can not work.” Monique mumbled to Sabrina.
“For many different reasons.” Sabrina growled.
“This is going to be hell.” Harry mumbled to Draco. Draco nodded in agreement. Fred and Oliver chose to glare at their two archrivals.
“Now please if you may move to your respective seats.” Marion requested. With a lot of deep sighing and complaining everyone moved next to their partner.
“Okay agreed we just act like normal.” Harry whispered to Monique.
“Yea.” she agreed.
“Nothing personal but for now we have to hurl insults at each other.” Draco said in a hushed tone to Sabrina.
“Got it.” she settled.
“Apologies later.” Monique added.
“Definitely.” Harry nodded.
“Okay you may all begin.” Marion instructed.
It was about 10 minutes before the end of class and every group as expected was having issues. Oliver and Rita were arguing not over the weapon but how obnoxious the other was. Fred and George were being scolded by Professor Marion for shrinking Gretchen to the size of their finger.
Dean was reluctantly taking the silencing charm off of Pansy under orders from Professor Marion. Crabbe kept turning their weapon into a dancing leprechaun. Seamus was 1 minute off of turning him into one. Melanie was as cold as ice to Neville so, every time she spoke ice would come from her mouth.
Ron, Nadia, Hermione and Montague were all shouting death threats to each other. Parvati and Blaise were having the least bit of trouble that is until Blaise set a fire to a piece of Parvati’s hair. She doused it in time and then used Sabrina’s little trick. His mouth was seemingly glued shut. Lavender pushed Goyle off the chair for attempting to touch her.
Meanwhile…after Draco and Sabrina had hurled massive insults at each other Draco made Sabrina so angry she accidentally hit her hand on the burner. At the same time Harry had jinxed Monique so that every time she insulted him her next words were “Harry is the sexiest man alive.” After saying it once she dropped a left over piece of steel on his hand.
“Aww, let me help you with that.” Draco snickered and dumped an entire bucket of water over Sabrina’s head. The whole class and Professor Marion turned around just in time to see Monique jump Draco.
“Enough!” Professor Marion yelled. All eyes in the room went towards him as the bell rang. The students scrambled to get out of the room. “Sit down!” he bellowed just as Sabrina slapped Draco upside the head.
“If I was your head of houses all of you would have detention today. Since I’m not I will let you all off easy except the four biggest offenders. 20 points from Slytherin and Gryffindor for your serious infractions. The four of you stay after class. The rest of you scramble.” Marion yelled as the rest of the class ran out of the room.
“Professor can I just change my shirt?” Sabrina asked.
“Can it wait?” he groaned.
“Umm…well.” she blushed. Marion looked down slightly.
“Oh…go ahead.” Marion smirked to himself.
“’Brina, sorry about that.” Draco apologized.
“I know same here.” Sabrina smiled walking out.
“Harry, I didn’t break your hand did I?” Monique questioned with concern.
“Oh no just a tad bit bruised.” Harry reassured her.
“Oh good. Nice fake slap, Draco.” Monique complimented.
“Not too bad yourself. Well I believe our next class starts soon so, we better hurry.” Draco said with a wink.
“Oh yea, bye professor.” They all said running for the door. Professor Marion stood there astounded. The 3 students could be heard yelling, “I hate you!” and storming off. Poor Professor Marion was left very bewildered.
“That was torture.” Parvati growled as all the Gryffindor 7th years sat down to lunch.
“Tell me about it. I can’t stand that little prat.” Ron grumbled.
“No need to say I can’t stand them.” Monique said dryly.
Fred rolled his eyes. “What?” she exclaimed.
“Nothing.” he replied brusquely.
“Is Sabrina back yet?” Seamus questioned.
“Yea, I’m back; that arrogant little twit. It was like I had on a wet t-shirt.” Sabrina snarled.
“No, you could certainly see through it.” Oliver replied flatly.
“Okay.” she answered with a shrug.
Hermione had a bit of frown framing her features. “Something is odd with those two.” she deduced noticing the clear tension Oliver and Fred were showing towards Monique and Sabrina.
“’Mione, are you okay?” Ron asked noticing her facial expression.
Hermione took one look at the large scowl on Fred and Oliver’s faces before registering Ron’s question. “Huh…oh yea I’m fine.” she replied still watching them apprehensively. “They’re up to something but, what?”
Please and thank you...feedback
Angel...slightly questionable really
a/n: long first week back...but here is the post...get ready for some drama
Sabrina, Monique, Fred and Oliver were all lagging in the back on their way to dinner. “Oliver, we still have practice tonight?” Sabrina questioned.
“Yea, you have somewhere else to be?” he answered rather sharply.
“No and why are you being so curt with me? I didn’t p*** you off.” Sabrina countered.
“You know what we all need to talk.” Fred cut in, pointing to an empty classroom. The two sisters walked ahead of them as Oliver slammed the door.
“What the bloody hell is this all about?” Monique snapped.
“It’s about you two flirting with Potter and Malfoy!” Fred barked.
“What the heck are you talking about?” Monique questioned with surprise.
“Don’t play stupid with us. You hardly pick fights with them anymore, act the same or look at them the same. When Professor Marion assigned partners you barely objected. Any other time you would have made all hell break loose!” Oliver indicted.
“It’s not just then. They smile at you in the hallways. We barely see you anymore. You actually stuck up for the buffoons. Shall we go on…?” Fred accused with a sneer.
“First of all the only reason we’re not beating the **** out of them all the time is because Snape and McGonagall would give us detention. At least McGonagall would for me. Second, we were trying to keep you and your brother out of trouble d*** it!” Monique yelled.
“Third, since when are you two watching out every f***** move? We have lives, too. Just because we’ve decided not to screw up our last year killing those fools doesn’t, mean we are flirting with them!” Sabrina countered.
“Well to be point blank the way you’re acting towards them has changed. Yesterday is a good example. Only when you see us coming did you four start arguing before you looked pretty d*** cozy!” Oliver yelled.
“Is that flirting or just talking?” Monique questioned hotly.
“No it’s flirting and since when do you talk to them outside of class? All that bull about how lessons were so difficult.” Fred accused.
“Look we don’t want people to think exactly what you do something is going on when nothing is. It’s easier to work with a person when you’re not hurling insults at them!” Sabrina justified.
“Well how can we trust you if you don’t tell us anything?” Oliver snapped.
“We made a pact! You don’t have to know everything!” Sabrina shouted back.
“Well maybe if we could trust you then it wouldn’t be such a problem!” Oliver countered.
“That’s your problem you don’t trust us! This is what this is all about. You know what, how can we have a relationship if you don’t trust us? We have full trust in you two. Maybe we shouldn’t.” Monique challenged.
“You’re accusing us!” Fred roared.
“Yes we are! How can we have a relationship if we can’t trust each other? Better, yet if you can’t trust that we’re not cheating on you with 2 guys who only recently we have been able to tolerate. We’ve liked you guys for going on a year now!” Sabrina yelled.
“She’s right!” Monique agreed.
“Maybe there doesn’t need to be a relationship then.” Oliver snapped. There was a brief silence in the room.
“What are you saying?” Sabrina asked.
“Exactly, what you said.” He snarled.
“Every time we fight it’s about how you guys don’t trust us. Our last big fight was about this. You both still haven’t come to terms with it.” Monique growled crossing her arms.
“Fine.” Fred said coldly.
“Fine!” the girls yelled and stormed out of the classroom. Sabrina and Monique walked into the Great Hall fuming.
“What happened?” Hermione asked seeing their expressions.
“Ask them!” replied Sabrina pointing to Oliver and Fred who just sat across from them. Oliver just glared at her.
“Can somebody please clue us in?” Dean asked.
“Well these two over here can’t seem to trust us!” Monique yelled.
“Oh yea we’re the bad guys in this game. While you two just sit on your **** and flirt with the Slytherins.” Fred retorted.
“Oh that’s it.” Lavender sighed. The four of them continued to launch more verbal abuse to each other all through dinner.
Finally, Hermione had enough. “For Merlin’s sake will two of you stop fighting or leave so the rest of us can have some peace?” she snapped.
“Fine.” Sabrina and Monique said getting up. A jinx barely glazed Monique’s head however. The next few sequences occurred very quickly. Monique shot 2 curses at Fred. Oliver and Sabrina were fighting literally. Finally, they were all ushered out by McGonagall.
“What do you think you’re doing?” McGonagall lectured. “Despicable behavior! What do you have to say for yourselves?”
“If Fred wouldn’t have tried to jinx me!” Monique yelled.
“And Oliver wouldn’t have called me a *****!” Sabrina screamed. McGonagall’s eyes narrowed to slits.
“You attacked them?” she hissed.
“15 points from Gryffindor for you ladies. Gentlemen, detention tonight. You’ll be making up that quidditch practice on Saturday. As for you two I want a scroll long paper on how to act like a lady.” McGonagall said sternly.
“Yes professor.” They sighed.
“Handed in tomorrow. Gentlemen your detention begins now. Ms. Caccamo and I mean both of you leave now!” McGonagall ordered. Both nodded as they stormed out of the classroom.
“That was some fight!” Blaise commented to the boys of Slytherin in the dormitory.
“Yea I wonder what made them?” Harry frowned.
“They think the girls are flirting with you two. I overheard them yelling.” Crabbe informed.
“Oh.” Draco scowled still doubtful. “That’s stupid why would they think that?”
“Easy you like them. So this is your chance to get them. You’re mad if you don’t take it.” Montague suggested.
“Please, it will blow off in a couple days. There’s no point besides what the hell would I do that for?” Harry said defensively.
“He’s only pointing out the obvious.” Goyle justified.
“Whatever.” Draco grumbled.
“Son of a gun. You two really do or you wouldn’t be so uptight about it.” Blaise accused. Harry and Draco merely smirked before ending all conversation on the topic.
“The book from the Alps, my Lord.” Lucius bowed holding up the book.
“Excellent. My plan is finally coming to light. How is the rest coming?” he smirked maliciously.
“Very well. Wormtail has taken care of it.” Lucius assured him.
Voldemort sneered. “He better have. Your presence is no longer needed today, Lucius.” Voldemort dismissed him.
“My thanks my Lord.” Lucius said reverently and swept out with a bow.
“Revenge is always so sweet. I weed out the weaklings and the traitors at once. Wormtail better not screw this one up…” he scowled with his usual bone-shaking laugh. If Voldemort is happy things must be making a turn for the worst.
Angel...slightly questionable really
a/n: alrightly next post is up...feedback as always is welcome...i'm debating whether to post every other week because of my schedule...i'll see how this week goes
It was the day after the fight and the school was buzzing. Everyone was trying to figure out what caused it but none of the 4 was willing to deluge any info on the subject. The thing that ticked each one of them off the most was the number of people hitting on each of them. It drove the two guys mad the most especially by lunch.
“I never knew we were so well liked.” Monique shrugged to Hermione and Sabrina at their usual spot for lunch.
“Neither did I.” Sabrina agreed.
“Oh well I guess it’s just the normal thing to do. The person you like breaks up with their other; you jump at the chance.” Hermione justified.
“I guess but some are hot.” Sabrina quipped.
“Now I never said it was all a bad thing.” Hermione added.
“Those two are p***** at us even more now. They shouldn’t be. They’re getting just as much attention.” Monique pointed out looking to her right where some Ravenclaw girls were talking to them.
“True. Anyway, I’m not going to let it get to my head.” Sabrina insisted.
“Hey Sabrina!” a tall raven haired Hufflepuff called. Sabrina did a double take before waving with a smile.
“You were saying.” Hermione corrected, raising an eyebrow at her flustered friend.
“I don’t want to get in any fights with girls whose boyfriends are talking to us.” Monique said frankly.
“Yea, like Carmela this morning. I mean it was her boyfriend talking to me but she only gets angry with me. Never met the girl in my life, though.” Sabrina scowled.
“Oh ****…I almost forgot! I got that animagus thing with Harry tonight.” Monique exclaimed.
“Yea and.” Sabrina questioned candidly.
“I forgot to do that Arithmacy essay…” she trailed off.
“Oh you got troubles…” Sabrina snickered. Monique gave her an obscene gesture.
“Don’t look at me. I reminded you to do it last night but you were too steamed to do anything.” Hermione retorted.
“Well there goes sleep tonight.” Monique groaned.
“Please Hermione!” Monique begged at dinner.
“No just because you have two essays for tonight, doesn’t mean I will do one of them.” Hermione refused.
“Sabrina, my sister, my twin, help me!” Monique beseeched.
“Sorry sis, I have my own essay to finish.” Sabrina frowned sympathetically.
“Darn and no one else takes it.” she groaned.
“Now I see why you and…” Parvati started but Monique gave her a menacing glare.
“Never mind.” Parvati squeaked.
“You’ll be late if you don’t get out of here.” Hermione prompted.
“Fine I see how it is.” Monique joked walking out of the Great Hall. She checked her watch.
“Aww bloody hell, I have only 2 minutes to get there.” Monique yelped starting to run. She flew down the hall trying to be on time.
“Where is she?” Harry thought as he paced outside the classroom. At that moment he saw Monique skidding down the hall.
“You just made it.” Harry sneered as she caught her breath.
“You’re a lot of help.” Monique panted.
“I know right.” He snickered.
“Well are you two ready to join me?” McGonagall asked facetiously.
“Oh…yes professor.” Harry answered.
“Why are you out of breath, Ms. Caccamo?” McGonagall questioned suspiciously.
“I…just ran all the way here.” Monique stuttered walking in the classroom after Harry.
“I see, well lets get to work then. You’ve both made incredible progress. I’m actually quite impressed.” McGonagall complimented. Both students exchanged grins.
“Well let’s start with you, Mr. Potter.” McGonagall challenged. Harry nodded and in minutes had transformed into a partial Siberian tiger.
“Well, you have the body but are missing the head.” McGonagall observed.
“I don’t think I have the roar either and a little help changing back?” Harry asked bashfully.
“Of course.” McGonagall smiled turning her wand on him. Harry took his usual form.
”Alright, Ms. Caccamo, you’re next.” McGonagall said stepping back.
“Okay.” Monique said taking a deep breath. Monique transformed in minutes to an adorable little fox but seemed to be missing something.
“You have everything but the tail my dear.” McGonagall replied with a smirk. Monique tried to speak but only a little yelp came out.
“Impressive. I guess you can’t turn back either. Refordio.” said McGonagall changing her back. “I want…” McGonagall started but there was a knock on the door.
“Oh well keep practicing. You know the spell to change back.” She instructed dashing out of the room.
“Hmm…she must have been expecting that.” Harry snickered.
“Yea she must have.” Monique agreed before going quiet.
“’Nique, do you mind if I ask what…” Harry began.
“I know what you wanna know and yes it is about us in a way.” Monique answered with a heavy sigh.
“Oh I kinda thought so. I’m really sorry I feel bad about, you know breaking…” Harry started but she cut in.
“Harry, you didn’t do anything. Fred is acting like a jerk because he doesn’t trust me. I mean he thought we were…you know doing stuff behind his back, you were flirting with me and I was too. A bunch of untrue things, as far as I’m concerned its over,” she explained with definite disdain.
“Monique…I’m going to say this now and get it over with. I think I do like you but you shouldn’t just give up on Fred because I know deep down you love him.” Harry confessed sincerely.
Monique was rendered speechless. “You do?” she squeaked.
“Yea, I always denied it to myself because we bickered and fought so much. Then I really got to know you and my heart let it slip through my Slytherin shield.” He admitted. Monique smiled warmly at him as her heart gave a slight jump.
“The point is you had two big fights with him so, the 3rd time could be the charm. I’m not saying let him walk all over you. No one deserves to be a doormat. He’s wrong not to trust you but don’t you love him?” Harry questioned in a blasé tone.
Monique bit her lip for a second and looked at him. She felt like a rock was implanted in the pit of her stomach. “Harry, look I do love him but…” she paused starring intently at the ground.
“For some reason I in a way…like you, too.” she confessed looking up guiltily.
“‘Nique, I’m not going to let you give up such a good thing for me.” Harry insisted almost choking on his own words.
“I’m not going to let you sacrifice your feelings for me. Harry, I can’t do that to you.” she persisted.
“I don’t want you to be constantly wondering whether you gave up someone worth while. You’ll be miserable plus you’re in love with him. Give, Fred one more chance. If he screws up again forget him.” Harry said assertively.
“But Harry, didn’t you ever think I might wonder about you?” Monique asked with a pout.
“Don’t worry about me. I’ll bounce back. I most certainly am not turning to Gretchen and that’s a promise.” Harry said jokingly.
“Oh that I wasn’t worried about.” she smirked.
“Good.” he laughed.
Monique crossed the room to give him a hug. They slowly pulled apart never releasing each other. “We shouldn’t.” Harry whispered to her.
“I know but it’s too late now.” Monique whispered back.
Harry and Monique moved slowly, cautiously towards each other before finally closing the gap between their lips. Both felt the magic, flame and chemistry, they knew eventually would have to be ignored.

a/n: okay...i'm sorry i got caught up in my history homework...i hope the next post makes up for it (oh yes all rights to the song at the end go to usher not me )
“Monique, wake up! It’s 8 in the morning!” Sabrina yelled in an attempt to rouse her sister.
“Mmm…” Monique mumbled turning over.
“How long were you up?” Sabrina asked pulling out her uniform.
“I don’t know a while. I finished the essays early. I was up half the night thinking.” Monique sighed pulling herself out of bed.
“About who?” Sabrina questioned suspiciously.
“Harry…we kissed last night but he wants me to give Fred a 3rd chance.” Monique groaned falling back on the bed. Sabrina almost fell into the desk.
“You did? No, wonder you couldn’t sleep.” Sabrina replied in awe.
“’Brina, I felt something there but I can’t just give up on Fred either. I know he’s acting like a jerk but…” Monique trailed off.
“I understand, Monique. I feel the same way about Oliver.” Sabrina admitted.
“I thought you did, too.” Monique smiled weakly.
Sabrina sat next to her sister. “Hey it will all work itself out eventually. It may take a bit but everything will smooth out.” she said comfortingly.
“Yea it will I feel it. You really should be the older twin.” Monique smirked lightheartedly.
“Nope, I rather be the younger.” Sabrina grinned giddily. “Just one question?”
“What?” Monique asked.
“How was it?” Sabrina questioned with a laugh.
“Magical. Blissful. Wonderful. Amazing, are the only words that come to mind.” Monique replied dreamily.
“I’m happy for you, though. Now all I have to do is see what my heart says.” Sabrina sighed. Monique finished getting dressed for them to hurry down to classes.
Harry sat in Transfiguration listening to McGonagall lecture them all on how a Phoenix transforms thinking about her. He wasn’t paying much attention to whatever McGonagall was saying. “How could I let her go? I tell her to try again with a guy who I know loves her but doesn’t truly trust her. She did say she had feelings for me. I mean that kiss basically said it all. I’m doing the right thing, though. She will be safer with Fred. Fred doesn’t have Voldemort after his life and willing to hurt anyone he cares about to get to him. I have to let her go.” Harry thought to himself in an idle state.
“Harry, stop daydreaming and pay attention.” Draco growled hastily. Harry reluctantly brought himself out of his world that only Monique was in.
“Monique, we need to go change and head to practice. Remember we wanted extra time so, we wouldn’t have to deal with those three for the first 30 minutes?” Sabrina reminded her very depressed sister.
“’Nique, maybe you could talk to Hagrid about it later. After all he knows him very well.” Hermione suggested helpfully.
“Yea, I think I will. Thanks, Hermione.” Monique decided with some of the agony disappearing from her face.
“Happy to help.” Hermione smiled sweetly.
“Now that you’re bouncing back we’ll be able to get some bloody work done for the show.” Sabrina said merrily.
“We should hurry and get changed then.” Monique agreed excitedly.
Both came into the dance studio in navy dance pants and tank tops with a red stripe and red and black Nikes. “Hello girls. The stage is all ready for you. Go ahead and get started.” Selena said amiably.
“Okay.” Sabrina shrugged climbing on the stage and going to stage right. Monique climbed up and went to stage left. Selena hit the play button on the stereo.
“Faster and faster baby. I never lose my breath.” The music blared as both girls came out and started the routine. By the end of “Headsprung” both girls were quite impressed with their progress.
“Excellent girls! All you have to add are the solos and your effects. Sabrina you just need to clean up the last little flip at the end. Same goes for you Monique but that is the end so, no worries.” Selena praised.
“Thanks, so next would be my solo.” Sabrina said getting in place.
“So, you would come down center stage and do the poses.” Monique thought out loud.
“Then it would be the dance.” Sabrina finished. The two girls worked on “Only U” for about 20 minutes after the other girls entered.
“That should about cover it.” Sabrina said taking a sip from her water bottle.
“Definitely. All that’s left is Snoop and we’re done.” Monique agreed.
“You two look amazing.” Cho complimented.
“Thank you, so do you.” Monique smiled playing “Drop it like it’s hot.”
“Alright, we have loads of work to do. Talk to you guys later.” Marietta waved.
“Bye.” They yelled back to them.
“Looks like the 3 musketeers have decided to actually do some work today.” Sabrina sneered doing a handstand.
“I would like to think so, since the show is next Friday.” Monique snarled.
“Anyway…back to you and where to put the tick.” Sabrina quipped.
“I’m bloody exhausted. I do this again I’m going to drop.” Monique complained sprawled out in a chair.
“Definitely.” Sabrina groaned finishing her second water bottle.
“You two should get some rest. Everyone else is packing up for the night.” Selena suggested sympathetically.
“Okay, we’ll see you Friday.” Monique ceded. Sabrina and Monique gathered their things and headed back towards the common room.
“I’m in the mood for some ice cream. You want some?” Sabrina asked turning back towards the kitchen.
“Sure, get me vanilla, please.” Monique nodded as Sabrina left for the kitchen. Sabrina was going through the last few steps of “Only U” when she bumped into a rock solid figure.
“Brina, you should watch where your going.” Draco sneered.
“What are you doing up?” she questioned regaining her composure.
“I’m a prefect. I needed something to keep me awake.” Draco replied matter of factly.
“Oh right. I just came from practice and wanted some ice cream.” Sabrina justified realizing he was obligated to give her detention.
“It’s okay, I’ll let this one slide.” He said giving her a wink.
“Thank you. I’d be dead if I got detention this week.” Sabrina said quite relieved.
“No problem, I ask only one thing.” Draco smirked deviously.
“Name it.” Sabrina replied returning his smirk.
Draco’s tone changed to a more serious one. “What happened between you and Wood?”
“Oh him.” she said dryly.
“We got in a fight because of his issues with trusting me not to cheat. He thinks you and I were flirting and stuff. I got fed up of not being trusted just because I am who I am and called it quits. I was afraid of being taken for granted.” Sabrina explained difficultly.
“’Brina, he’s only worried about losing you because you’re so wonderful. He’s wrong in every way for not trusting you for every relationship is built on trust. He’s crazy about you and he should be. If you were my girlfriend I would be, too. It doesn’t change the fact but perhaps you can give him another chance. You said it once before and I know you do. Sabrina, you love him. Don’t you?” Draco confessed his eyes glistening with care and tenderness.
“Draco…I do but could it be possible I like you, too?” Sabrina professed.
“Sabrina, your safe with him. I can put you in harm’s way. He can’t do that.” Draco pleaded with her to let go.
“But I’m not safe with him. My heart isn’t. He will just do it again and think no matter what he does I’ll forgive him.” Sabrina insisted.
“’Brina…” Draco said taking her hand. “Don’t give up on a person you love. I know it seems crazy but don’t worry about me. I’m good. When you do talk to him make sure he knows if he ever does something like this again you’re gone. You are a person and not one to be taken advantage of. Bring out the Slytherin piece of you.”
Sabrina smirked slightly. “I don’t know. I’ll decide, Draco.” Sabrina sighed knocking on the door.
A little house elf dripping in all colors and forms of clothing appeared. “Oh hello, Ms. Sabrina. Young Mr. Malfoy.” Dobby stuttered.
“Don’t worry, Dobby, he’s not going to hurt you.” Sabrina smiled seeing the little house elf tremble slightly.
“All right, what can I do for you?” he asked much calmer.
“Can I get a scoop of vanilla and strawberry in a cup?” Sabrina asked.
“Of course.” Dobby nodded happily.
“One scoop of vanilla in a cup for me, Dobby.” Draco asked.
“Yes sir.” Dobby answered energetically and closed the door behind him.
“You know Dobby?” Sabrina asked tentatively.
“Yea, he used to work for father.” Draco replied with some guilt.
“Oh I understand. I can’t say this enough but you are nothing like your father.” Sabrina said sweetly.
“Thanks.” Draco smirked nervously.
“Something wrong?” Sabrina questioned seeing his expression.
“Nothing.” Draco assured her moving a piece of hair from her face. Sabrina took a step forward so there was almost no gap between them. Sabrina looked into those silver eyes she once found full of malice. Draco couldn’t help but think how beautiful she was inside and out. Draco and Sabrina moved so their lips almost touched and leaned in to close the gap…
“Here’s your ice cream…oh so sorry.” Dobby apologized coming out with two cups of ice cream.
“It’s okay Dobby thank you.” Draco said amiably, taking the 2 cups from him.
“Well good night and so sorry.” Dobby apologized again.
“It’s okay. Night Dobby.” Sabrina insisted with a wave. Dobby disappeared behind the door.
“Wow.” Sabrina commented.
“Yea. Oh here’s your ice cream.” Draco replied apprehensively as Sabrina took the cup from his hand.
“I should get back I guess.” Sabrina said breaking the silence.
“Yea, I probably need to get back on duty.” Draco agreed.
“Goodnight, Draco.” She whispered.
“Night, Sabrina.” Draco said beginning to turn away. He paused for moment before giving her a gentle kiss on the cheek and walking into the distance. Sabrina stood there in awe for a second before going back to her common room.
“Draco, where have you been?” Pansy demanded when he came into the common room with ice cream.
“On prefect duty and to the kitchens.” Draco replied snappishly.
“We had a meeting tonight, Malfoy. Didn’t your mark burn?” Blaise drawled.
“No.” he shrugged.
“He doesn’t come to your meetings. He comes to mine.” Nadia informed them waltzing down the stairs.
“Thank you, Nadia.” Draco grumbled.
“Don’t mention it.” Nadia sneered evilly.
“Oh right. Well he’s rambling about some master plan taking place this week or something. He just said make sure none of us do anything stupid this week and to be very cautious about talking about things openly.” Rita recapped.
“Okay…” Draco replied sounding none too enthused.
“What’s your problem?” Gretchen retorted.
“Nothing, why?” Draco snapped.
“No reason.” Gretchen rolled her eyes.
“Whatever, I’m going upstairs.” Draco declared walking up the dormitory stairs.
“Hey. What’s up?” Harry asked seeing the scowl on his face.
“Everything.” Draco groaned taking off his prefect badge.
“Ah I see. If you’re wondering, Montague is talking to Snape about some quidditch stuff.” Harry informed.
“Great.” Draco sighed.
“You told her didn’t you.” Harry deduced.
“Yea. She’s going to think about it. We were close to kissing but Dobby came back with the ice cream. It was an awkward silence, we said “goodnight” and I kissed her on the cheek. Then I come in here to Pansy and the rest of them lecturing me about a meeting. All the while I’m about to lose my mind because I literally just told her to go back to Wood.” Draco blurted out.
“I feel your pain. I actually kissed her and can’t get it out of my head.” He groaned. “There is nothing left to do now but try and sleep it off even though it doesn’t really work.”
“Yea you’re right.” Draco ceded changing quickly into some sweats and a t-shirt. Neither boy said another word. They only climbed into bed hoping sleep would come soon.
Across the way the sisters sat up in their beds thinking of Draco, Harry and what to do about their feelings. All 4 teenagers had to ignore their true feelings for someone. They had it bad…
When you feel it in your body

It was Friday, the end of another week. All the looked forward to a break especially the ones preparing for O.W.L.S and N.E.W.T.S. Some had larger issues to deal with. This is where our day begins…
“Charms, double Potions, then Care of Magical Creatures, Herebology and Transfiguration.” Hermione read off her tablet before returning back to her “Daily Prophet.”
“Thank you.” Seamus grinned returning to his pancakes.
“Are you 4 still not speaking?” Parvati asked Monique and Sabrina.
“Not really. We said several words to each other yesterday but it wasn’t much more than” Hi, how are you?” Monique retorted.
“Oh…” Ginny replied wide-eyed. “They miss you two you know?”
Sabrina nearly choked on her juice. “They what?” she exclaimed.
“It helps to be able to torture your brother, but yeah. I wasn’t supposed to say that, though.” Ginny replied with a wink.
“Good looking out, Gin.” Monique smirked deviously.
“But you’re not speaking to them.” Hermione commented behind her paper.
“Doesn’t mean it’s not interesting to know.” Sabrina said sounding intrigued.
“You want me to tell them anything?” Ginny offered.
“No, we rather tell them ourselves.” Monique sighed, remembering why she was so confused in the first place.
“Okay, I have Trelawney first thing in the morning so, I’ll talk to you guys later.” Ginny said merrily and headed for the Astronomy Tower.
“So, when are you really going to talk to them?” Parvati questioned knowingly.
“Really, we’re serious. We are gonna talk today. A couple of those several words were “Can we talk tomorrow?” Sabrina replied sincerely.
“Okay, just don’t let them walk all over you or anything.” Lavender advised.
“Oh, we know already.” Monique said glumly.
“Oh, from who?” Hermione asked casually.
“Umm…just a couple of friends.” Monique answered turning a slight shade of pink. Hermione poked her eyes over her paper to look at her before returning to it.
“I don’t even want to know.” Lavender insisted taking another bite of her bacon.
“Great, we don’t want to explain anyway.” Sabrina mumbled nervously.
“I heard that.” Parvati said quickly shooting a knowing glance at Sabrina.
“What do you know?” Monique asked slightly panicked.
“Enough, but we won’t tell.” Parvati smirked with an eyebrow raised.
“Parvati, don’t we have some business with Professor Flitwick about some extra tutoring?” Lavender posed to her best friend.
“Yes, we do. See you three later.” Parvati chimed. She and Lavender paid a quick visit to Seamus and Dean before leaving for the Charm’s room.
“Ugh!” Monique groaned laying her head on the table.
“Don’t worry about those two. You know Parvati and Lavender gossip but they would never tell something that would embarrass you.” Hermione reminded in a friendly manner.
“We know but it’s what happened.” Sabrina groaned.
Hermione finally put down the paper and rolled it up. “Look, Potter and Malfoy are right about going back to them. I also have a divine respect for them sacrificing their feelings. The question I pose to you is what do you girls really want? I’m not saying one option is better than the other but go with what you’re heart says. If you’re meant to be with the other than somehow you will be. Talk to Hagrid before class starts. He knows Potter and Malfoy better than anyone else besides the other. If you really want my opinion here it is: I don’t know Harry and Draco very well but I can tell they care for both of you very much. I would respect their wishes for now.” Hermione suggested in a helpful manner.
“Thanks, Hermione that really helped.” Sabrina replied with a heartfelt smile.
“You’re really the brightest witch of your age.” Monique complimented.
“Thank you.” Hermione smiled proudly.
The day dragged on slowly. As usual someone made a book fly and hit someone on the head in Charms. Potions was a disaster in the making. Poor Neville ruined his potion from having Snape looming over him the entire time. Snape took points from Hermione for being as he said, ”an insufferable know-it-all”. He awarded 5 points to Sabrina for a perfect potion. Lucky for the Gryffindors, Hermione always made up the points later.
“If Snape takes away one more point from your potion, I’m complaining to McGonagall.” Ron growled to Hermione.
“Please Ron like that will ever happen. Besides, Sabrina can make them up for us.” Dean grinned giving her puppy dog eyes.
“Don’t depend solely on me, but I’ll try.” Sabrina replied airily. At that moment Sabrina turned to see Harry and Draco walking past their table in what felt like slow motion.
“Monique…” Sabrina sighed.
“Yea, I saw them. Lets get out of here.” She whispered. Both girls got up abruptly and walked out of the Great Hall.
“What’s wrong?” Neville questioned. Harry nudged Draco as he watched them leave.
“Let’s go.” Harry whispered, turning back with Malfoy. They reached them right as they turned out of the Great Hall.
“Hey! Where are you going?” Harry called seeing the tears streaming down Monique’s face.
“I can’t talk to you right now.” Monique replied shakily.
“’Brina, say something?” Draco asked sounding very concerned.
“I don’t know what to say right now.” Sabrina cried.
“Yea last night was, well awkward I agree, but you said you were ok…” Draco said gingerly.
“I thought I was but then I saw Oliver and everything just came crashing down again.” Sabrina explained through tears.
“Look, we’re going to see Hagrid. We’ll talk to you guys later.” Monique said hastily before she and Sabrina sprinted away.
“Monique!” Harry called but she continued running from her reality.
“I’m coming. Hold yer ‘orses.” Hagrid said trudging to door. “Monique, Sabrina, what yer doin’ here so ‘arly?” Hagrid asked seeing the two girls outside.
“Same reason I came before.” Monique replied with a shrug.
“Oh…come in I just made a pot o tea.” He welcomed. Monique and Sabrina sat at the small table as Hagrid poured some tea into cups.
“So what happened?” Hagrid questioned sitting down with his own cup.
“We’re going to talk to Fred and Oliver today, but it’s more a matter of what’s really right. I mean how am I going to say “I love you” to Oliver when I still have feelings for Draco?” Sabrina asked in search of some closure.
“I’ll tell ya what I told yer sister. ‘arry and Malfoy are complex people but are like you in more ways then ye know. Fred and Oliver were wrong in de ways they been treatin’ ya but ye can’t ignore love.” Hagrid said soothingly.
“True, but how are all of use alike?” Monique challenged.
“Think about it. Both ye and ‘arry really never knew yer parents. He’s had a hard life the same way both ya do. Malfoy, let’s just say he’s the most misunderstood because of his family.” Hagrid explained.
“He told me I wasn’t safe with him but my heart is vulnerable with Oliver. I know about his parents and how he’s well… but he knows I would never judge from that. I mean how can he sacrifice it all?” Sabrina argued.
“These questions ye need ask him.” Hagrid advised.
“When I tried yesterday, he only said I would be miserable wondering about Oliver and I wouldn’t be safe.” Sabrina countered.
“I see, but do ye really know his entire family?” Hagrid questioned.
“Well no.” she admitted.
“I understand where ‘Brina’s coming from, too. Harry told me that. Hagrid, can you just tell us so we can decide for ourselves?” Monique pleaded. Hagrid starred at her for a moment before succumbing to her pleads.
“Alright. Well you know how ‘arry is wanted by you-know-who. He also doesn’t want to lose anyone close to him. He almost lost Sirius but luckily he came out all right. He doesn’t want ya to get hurt. Now for Malfoy, where to begin? Well no need to say who his father is. The Malfoys are obviously a very influential family themselves but his mother Narcissa is as well. At least she had been. Draco’s mother is Sirius’ cousin.” Hagrid clarified.
Sabrina and Monique’s jaws dropped. “Removed from the Black family tree obviously, but still blood related. Narcissa’s sisters are Bellatrix Lestrange and Andromeda Tonks.” Hagrid winced painfully.
“Bellatrix is his aunt!” Sabrina yelled.
“Yes so, he definitely has a bloody good reason for protectin’ ye. I know ye don’t want to be protected. The thing is they care about ye. Oliver and Fred do as well and love ye both. I know you care about ‘arry and Malfoy so, I would respect their wishes unless they tell ye otherwise.” Hagrid explained sincerely.
“You’re right, thanks Hagrid. We’ll get over it eventually I guess.” Monique sighed trying to put a smile back on her face.
“Glad I could ‘elp.” Hagrid replied with a big smile.
“Oh I see yer classmates comin’ off with ya.” Hagrid said with a wink. Sabrina and Monique thanked him once more heading outside to join their classmates.
It was 8pm as Sabrina paced the common room after dinner waiting for Oliver and Fred to come in.
“Sabrina sit down you’re making me nervous.” Monique beseeched her sister.
“Do you think they’re even coming?” Sabrina asked, the question plaguing her mind. Monique said nothing from the butterflies building in her stomach.
“Of course we are, why wouldn’t we?” Oliver sneered with Fred and George lagging behind him.
“I’ll see you guys later, but I’ll be by the stairs to break up any fights.” George snickered, but Fred glared at him.
“Okay, tell me what happened later, said George casually, running up the dormitory stairs.
“Hey.” The girls whispered.
“Hi.” The guys replied.
“So, you two wanted to talk? Lets talk.” Fred said still scowling slightly. Oliver nudged him in the ribs. “Okay, sorry.”
“I understand you don’t really feel like talking, but it’s a bit essential even if we end up as only friends.” Monique retorted.
Fred’s features loosened greatly. “Always the same,” he laughed.
“Look girls, we’re the ones who need to apologize.” Oliver admitted.
“He’s right. We should have never accused you both of being unfaithful without substantial evidence of it,” said Fred seriously.
“The thing is we didn’t and still don’t want to lose you. What fueled the fire was all that time you had been hiding and pretending to hate Potter and Malfoy when you were really becoming best friends with them. All you had to do is tell us and we would have told you both…you were mad.” Oliver confessed. Sabrina smirked amusingly.
“The point is we love you. We were stupid to let them come between our relationships. Can you ever forgive us?” Fred begged on his knees at Monique’s feet.
“We bought gifts.” Oliver added taking a small velvet box out of his pocket as Fred took out an identical one. Oliver sat next to Sabrina on the sofa. They opened the boxes to show shiny gold necklaces with a heart charm.
“How did you? Why did you?” Monique stuttered.
“Selling products to several very eager customers.” Fred answered.
“I don’t know what to say.” Sabrina exclaimed.
“You forgive me?” Oliver begged with puppy eyes.
“Before we say anything we need to say our peace,” said Monique assertively.
“Fair enough.” Fred shrugged sitting on the armrest.
“We were extremely angry at you for obvious reasons. You two cannot stop us from talking to Harry and Draco either. We are independent, but since you trust us that should be okay, right?” Monique asked.
“Of course.” Oliver and Fred answered complacently.
“Also…the turmoil we went through cannot happen again. Next time this happens we’re done,” said Sabrina resiliently.
“Okay.” Both boys agreed.
“Most of all though, we are sorry if you feel like we lied to you,” she explained sincerely.
“Can you forgive us now?” Monique pleaded.
“Hmm…we’ll think about it.” Fred said coyly.
“This could take some thought.” Oliver snickered.
“Please…” they pouted.
Fred and Oliver leaned in and gently kissed them. “Does that answer your question?” questioned Fred slyly.
“Does it answer yours?” Monique responded. The two couples kissed once again to seal their relationship once more.
“The plan is ready my Lord. Nothing can go wrong I’ve made sure of that,” said Wormtail confidently.
“You better have Wormtail. If not, there is no need to say what will happen to you.” Voldemort sneered.
“Nadia…has assured me all our deatheaters are well trained and protected. She also supplied the weapons.” Wormtail informed clearly impressed with his own performance.
“Wonderful, go tell Lucius and Bella now everything is on schedule and have everyone else in position for the attack.” The Dark Lord hissed. Wormtail bowed and walked out the drawing room of the Riddle House.
“Hogwarts, will never know what hit them until it’s too late.” Voldemort cackled sardonically. The fire in his eyes would burn a hole through human flesh. The hatred and coldness of his tongue stung like a bee. The steel rod that encircled his heart kept out all love and warmth out making him ruthless and evil. The Dark Lord turned and starred out the door as the fire continued to crackle and snap. Hogwarts was in for a surprise that night…

a/n: well here's the next post...cookies for all
“Oh s***.” Harry gasped jumping up from a restless sleep holding his searing head. Harry looked at the clock. It was 11:55pm.
“What’s wrong now?” Malfoy groaned groggily.
“I had a dream…more like a nightmare that Voldemort is going to attack the school tonight.” Harry explained starting to panic.
“You’re joking right?” Draco questioned in pure disbelief.
“No, I’m dead serious. He was going over details with Wormtail. Wormtail said in a nutshell…Nadia had taken care of it all. This is serious, Malfoy. Nadia knows more than any of us. If she’s helping that means something is going to happen within the school. For some reason I don’t think this is going to be an attack from the forest,” said Harry gravely.
“If there is then we need to go to Dumbledore now and I’m coming with you. You’d be a main target.” Draco stated firmly. Harry nodded in agreement as both boys pulled on black hoodies and jeans, armed and ready with their wands.
“Wait, let me get one thing.” Draco said quickly. He opened a black leather box and took out a metal pocketknife with the words “Property of Lucius Draco Malfoy” and a serpent engraved on the top. “From my mother for emergencies,” he clarified slipping the knife into his pocket.
Harry and Draco moved cautiously yet hastily down the creaky dormitory stairs. They stopped as a loud dong rang throughout the dormitory signaling the arrival of Saturday. It was midnight.
Piercing screams echoed from every house. Frightened feet ran down each dormitory stairs in search of the source. What each were met with was a horrid and ghastly sight…
Harry and Draco rushed down the stairs to find Melanie Daniels surrounded by her own pool of blood, stabbed in the back. A blond haired deatheater was kneeling over her body. The rest of Slytherin house had come to join Harry and Draco. “Nicolas!” Rita shouted clearly infuriated.
Nicolas took one step to run but never made it off the floor. Draco slammed him onto the ground and then Harry took the squirming boy by the collar in seconds. Snape flew into the common room and took one look. “Belany!” he growled his face deep red.
“He killed her!” a few girls shouted hysterically.
“Alright…oh Merlin.” Snape panicked looking at his students. For once Snape did not wear his usual sneer, but a look of absolute shock and rage.
“Malfoy, make sure no one leaves this room. Potter, you come with me to take Belany to Dumbledore. Oh and Malfoy, use whatever tactics you need to keep them in line.” Snape snarled opening the door. Harry dragged a struggling Belany out as Snape followed close behind.
Malfoy turned to face his rather frightened classmates. Draco had a scowl implanted on his face while his eyes burned into their souls. “Now most of us know both Belany and Mel were deatheaters so, Voldemort is after blood traitors. He could be after you for all we know and I care. The best thing for all of you to do is keep your ***** in this room! If I see you trying to leave, a curse will hit you so fast and hard you’ll be knocked out for weeks. Am I clear?” Draco explained his voice laced with ruthlessness and disdain.
The Slytherins nodded in pure fear. They were not the only ones…
Sabrina, Monique, Oliver and Fred had gone to bed hours before. Ron had come in late from prefect duty about midnight. He decided to sit the couch for a few minutes before going to bed. Little did he know he was being watched. The clock struck midnight in Gryffindor Tower. Ron turned to see a girl with short brunette hair holding a dagger poised above him. Ron screamed and ducked as the dagger glazed his shoulder blade.
His was not the only scream heard. In Ravenclaw, a half-blood yelped before he was bashed in the head with a hammer. James lie in a heap of his own blood while Erica, a 7th year deatheater, snickered cruelly as he died. In Hufflepuff 4th year, Teresa, cackled as she shot 5th year Penny to death. Lucky for Ron his fate wasn’t the same as the others.
Hermione in the lead bolted down the stairs with the rest of the girls at her heels from Ron’s scream. The boys raced down the stairs with Fred and George in the lead. Hermione jumped the girl seeing her closing in on Ron. In a swift motion, Hermione pulled the knife from the girl’s hand and proceeded to slap her repeatedly across the face.
“If you ever touch my Ron again, I swear you will never see the light of day!” Hermione bellowed having wrestled the girl known as Arielle Mercutio to the floor.
Ginny, Fred, George and the other 7th years were tending to Ron. McGonagall accompanied by Professor Marion dashed into the common room as Sabrina and Monique attempted to restrain Hermione. Professor Marion grabbed Arielle when the cowardly girl began to run towards the portrait hole. McGonagall’s lips were pursed so finely they were a straight line.
“Ms. Granger, Fred, George and Ginny take Ron to the hospital wing and for Merlin’s sake be careful. Monique come with me to take Ms. Mercutio to Dumbledore. Sabrina, Neville I leave you two in charge.” McGonagall ordered swiftly.
The students all complied moving as quickly as possible. “No need to say no one leaves this room.” Sabrina snarled, clearly enraged by the attack. No one uttered a word; they only found a spot on the floor or in a chair.
All of the head of houses and teachers were rushing towards Dumbledore’s office only to have him halt them at the staircase.
“I heard the screams already. What has happened?” questioned Dumbledore calmly. Everyone but the 4 scowling deatheaters began yelling at once.
“Silence!” The whole hall went quiet. “ Please one at a time. To make this fair we’ll go from left to right.” Dumbledore decided justly. “Now Prof. Flitwick, Cho what happened?”
“Go ahead, Cho.” Flitwick trembled.
“Well I was up doing some homework with Marietta, when the clock struck midnight. For some reason the whole house went quiet when it did. A chill just went down my spine. Then I heard James screaming and both of us…ran down the stairs.” Cho sniffed, the words coming out difficultly. “Erica was standing over his body with a bloody hammer…snickering like nothing was wrong!!” she yelled pointing a trembling finger at Erica.
The brown-haired girl looked up at the sound of her name. She had emerald eyes similar to that of Harry’s except hers were icy. She wasn’t ugly endowed with olive skin and nice curves. Erica merely looked at her before continuing to file her nails.
“He’s…” Dumbledore croaked in a grave manner. “Professor Sprout, proceed.”
“Carmela…” she urged on. Carmela put a long blond strand of hair behind her ear. Her baby blue eyes and smooth pale skin didn’t have its usual glitter, but seemed dull and dry. “Well, I was actually coming in from prefect duty. I heard the shots fired at someone. I ran into the room to find Teresa standing in the center of the room shooting at Penny! Then…Penny fell and she just kept on laughing! Rosaline disarmed her but it was too late!” Carmela explained hysterically.
“Oh shut up!” Teresa retorted with a sinister grin. Teresa’s hazel eyes displayed nothing but hate in her short body.
“You’re already on your way to trial so, I wouldn’t comment.” Dumbledore snapped handing Carmela a tissue.
“I guess I’m next.” Monique sighed heavily. “Well I was sound asleep upstairs when I heard Ron yelling. Hermione ran down in front of me. When we got there Arielle was standing over Ron, dagger in hand. Ron already had a deep gash in his shoulder blade. Hermione basically took it from there. Ron’s in the hospital wing so, that should tell something.” Monique explained glaring at Arielle. Arielle turned her head in a scowl.
“I see, well before I hear your story Harry, Professor Marion bring these children to my office and keep them up there.” Dumbledore ordered putting a hand on his forehead.
“No problem, let’s go.” Marion growled pushing them up the stairs.
“Before we go, I have a message from the Dark Lord.” Nicolas sneered.
“What?” Harry snarled still enraged and saddened from Melanie’s death.
“This is not the end. There will be more blood and tears shed of all who oppose and betrayed him. Melanie was a traitor so she deserved to die. She was one of the deatheaters, in fact. Her end could have been avoided. As for you Mr. Potter expect to be seeing us all very soon. Oh yes, you may want to send a search party to the forest. You may find some interesting things there.” Nicolas retorted sarcastically.
“And he’s not being a smart ***. It’s the truth.” Erica sneered sinisterly.
“MOVE!!” Marion bellowed at the 4 children. The deatheaters walked up the stairs without saying another word.
“Marion, the aurors are coming. Don’t go alone.” Dumbledore suggested firmly.
“Fine,” he grumbled following the deatheaters upstairs.
“Now for you Harry.” Dumbledore sighed. He looked haggard with the worry for all his students’ safety.
“Well there are two sides to my story really,” Harry said looking at the ground.
“Professor, can we head back to our common rooms, please?” Carmela interrupted obviously not interested in what Harry had to say.
“Go ahead.” Dumbledore replied exasperated. Carmela was led away by Professor Sprout. Cho gave Harry and Monique a hug before leaving with Flitwick.
“I won’t leave you, Harry.” Monique smiled weakly.
“Thanks.” Harry mouthed to her. “Anyway, I’ll just get this over and done with. I had a dream last night that Voldemort was going to attack the school. When I woke up it was 11:55. I told Malfoy and we got dressed to come tell you. It struck midnight as we were walking down the stairs. By the time we got there Mel…was…she was…dead. Belany tried to move but Malfoy and I jumped him. Then Professor Snape came in.”
“You knew?” Monique yelled.
“Not until last night. By the time I found out it was already too late to save them. I wish I knew sooner.” Harry replied in a deep state of depression.
Monique’s expression softened. “You’re right. I’m just upset about the whole thing,” she sighed.
“Yea me too.” Harry said. She nodded playing idly with her necklace.
“You go shopping?” Harry smirked noticing her new necklace.
”Oh its from…Fred,” she replied with a sympathetic smile.
“You’re back together I presume?” Harry questioned offhandedly.
“Yea, we are and thanks for everything.” Monique said giving him a long hug.
“Headmaster Dumbledore, the aurors are here sir. Oh and I have even better news, Minister Fudge will be here tomorrow with the Order.” Hagrid said sourly.
“I see. Please alert Marion. “ Dumbledore replied kindly.
“No need sir. We’re coming to collect the children. We’ll send him down.” One of the aurors said stonily.
“Alright,” nodded Dumbledore gratefully.
“Should we?” asked Monique looking down.
“Yes professors return them to their houses.” Dumbledore sighed. The head of houses began to slowly move the two teenagers away from the scene. The aurors moved silently up the stairs to the office.
Harry turned back to see Hagrid’s head hung low. Dumbledore looked Harry in the eye as a single tear fell from his eyes to the ground.
I open my eyes
I try to see but I’m blinded
By the white light
I can’t remember how
I can’t remember why
I am here tonight
And I can’t stand the pain
And I can’t make it go away
No I can’t stand the pain
How could this happen to me
I’ve made my mistakes, got nowhere to run
The night goes on
As I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream…
How could this happen to me
I try to make a sound but no one hears me
I’m slipping off the edge
I’m hanging by a thread
I wanna start this over again
So I try to hold on to a time when
And I can’t explain what happened
And I can’t erase the things that I’ve done
No I can’t
How could this happen to me
I’ve made my mistakes, got nowhere to run
The night goes on
As I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream…
How could this happen to me
I’ve made my mistakes, got nowhere to run
The night goes on
As I’m fading away
I’m sick of this life
I just wanna scream…
How could this happen to me
