46. Detention

I entered the potions room and narrowed my brows. 

A table and a chair were set right opposite of Snape's desk. On the table were a bottle, a knife and something like a pad. 

"Take a seat, quickly!" I nodded and walked towards the desk and sat down.  

I gulped when I saw that there were living, wiggling worms in the bottle. 

"You will cut worms into two halves today, in your detention." I looked wide eyed at him. 

"Cut them... a-alive?!" I said and thought of being sliced alive.  

"Yes. Any problem with that?"  

I nodded.  

"I can't do this." 

"Well, the question is not if you can do it, it is when you will start doing it!" 

I gulped again.  

"Fine, I will do this only if they don't feel anything."  

Snape rose from his seat with an annoyed look and walked towards me. He looked down at me and... took the bottle with the worms to open it. He pointed his wand at the open bottle and twitched it, making the worms stop moving. Then he took the bottle and spilled all the content right in front of me. I grimaced in disgust. He stared one more moment at me and turned around.  

It was very fast and a gust hit my face. It smelled like a dusty, slightly musty and woody scent mixed with a fresh fragrance. I believed this fresh smell came from his aftershave.  

He smelled very masculine and attractive. A desire rose in my chest, I wanted to burry my nose into his neck. I blushed. 

Suddenly, Snape stopped and slowly turned around. 

"Did I say this aloud?" I wondered anxiously. 

"What have you there, in your lap?" He asked very silkily. 

I looked down.  

"The books my guardian gave me!" My eyes went wide. 

"I wanted to bring them in an other shape, back in the common room but I forgot to ask Harry about that spell after his and Ron's argument! Shit!" I thought. 

"Errr, Astronomy books..." I lied badly.  

"Well, is it?" I nodded. 

He moved closer and bent down over the desk, over the worms. I jumped up before he could grab them away from me. But that made him more suspicious.  

"I assume that aren't Astronomy books; you are quite protective about them." I gulped. 

"It's just... I like Astronomy very much and I don't like someone touching my Astronomy books." I tried to defend my stupid behavior.  

Snape came running towards me and stopped abruptly, his arms leaned against the wall beside my head for support. 

Our noses were inches away and I could feel his small, warm breaths between my nose and upper lip. My belly twitched lightly.  

"You dare to steal from the library and lie to me?" He asked dangerously. I gulped.  

"He will kill me!" I thought and I closed my eyes, my hands tightened around my waist and the books. There I winced in pain. My wrist hurt again. 

I felt that Snape backed a little but he was still in front of me. Then I felt his hands around my wrists which caused a weak whimper out of my mouth. The books fell to the ground and my arms were twisted to the outside by Snape. I opened my eyes unsure. 

"Why was he still holding me when the books already fall down?" I wondered. 

He looked at my wrists. Then he asked, not looking at me: "Where have you been?" I said nothing.  

"Where have you been?!" he asked again and more loudly. But when he didn't hear a word from me he looked at me and came closer again.  

"I can report you and make you expelled. That's why I would answer every single question if I were you." He threatened me. But I still said nothing.  

That made him more angry and he tossed me against the desk with the worms. My pelvic bones crashed against the edge of the table and hurt badly while my elbows squished the little animals to death. 

"Now, tell me, why are your sleeves soaked with something like blood?" He came from the back.  

"How do you know this is blood? It could be something else." I said weak and faced him. 

"Don't challenge me!" He warned me.  

"You are challenging yourself, because your not sure whether it's blood or water." I tried to manipulate his thoughts by saying what I wanted to make him think. I read that once in a psychology book. 

But that didn't quite work; he grabbed my hurting wrists and squeezed them. I whimpered. Tears forming in my eyes. I closed my eyes and pressed my lips together.  

"S-Stop." I said shortly after. 

"You are hurting me." I opened my eyes and tears blurred my sight until they streamed down my cheeks. 

"Please." I whispered softly with love. 

He looked at me weak and hurt at once while his grab slowly loosen my wrists.  

"My guardian was right. Snape wants to hurt me." My head said. 

More tears found their way out of my eyes. 

Suddenly I leaped up the table, took the two books and ran out of his office. Towards ... I didn't know. 

I end up in the girls toilet. I cried and cried and cried. No one was there to hear my heart aching sobs.  

Suddenly I heard an angry girl screaming: "There are ghosts which want to sleep!" I startled up. 

"Ghosts?!" I wondered loud and opened the door of my toilet cabin. 

A teenage-girlish ghost with two braids and glasses looked angry at me.  

"How do you dare to cry while the moaning myrtle wants to sleep?!" She said. 

"I-I am sorry. I didn't know you are sleeping here." I apologized. 

But that seemed to make her more angry.  

"You don't know about me? The moaning myrtle?!" I shook my head. She screamed angry and I covered my ears with my hands.  

"I am a Ravenclaw ghost who died in this toilet. And since then I live here!" She said outraged. I asked myself how she died in a toilet but kept that to me. I just wanted to get out of there.  

I nodded and said: "Sorry I didn't know about you. I am new here. I need a little time to know everything and everyone here in Hogwarts. But now I know who you are and I will come again for a chat with you. But for now I won't disturb you anymore, good night." I said quickly and she wondered that I said I would come again and visit her.  

Still confused about how a girl could die in a toilet made me overhear some steps who followed me. 

"Maybe, she bled out while she had her period." I thought but challenged that idea because I read somewhere that a girl bleeds out hardly a little cup of blood in this time.  

Suddenly, I realized these foot steps behind me but it was too late. Someone very strong wrapped an arm around my stomach and put a hand on my mouth to suppress the noises I made. I struggled but I wasn't able to free me. The person dragged me somewhere behind. I thought what I could do and had an idea which I actually wanted to try out some day. It was not a brilliant one but it was worth of trying.  

I bit in the hand which covered my mouth and obtained the desired reaction. A male scream was heard and the hand freed my mouth.  

"You-!" The voice was similar but I couldn't match it with someone then.  

I tried to shake off the arm on my stomach but I was half successful; when I shook it off he grabbed me by my arm and pressed me against the wall. I whimpered, my back hit the wall very hurtful. I looked up and my adrenaline pumped through my veins in fear.  

"Nah, nah. Who is wandering that late through the corridors?" Professor Moody pinned me on the wall and smiled evilly. I gulped.  

"I-I had detentions with Professor Snape." I said quickly and quietly. His artificial eye rolled back and scanned his back.  

"Poor thing. Did he hurt you?" His hands went down to my wrists but I pulled them aside before he could reach them.  

"I heard he is ... cruel in his detentions. How was yours?"  

"Fine." I said a bit too hasty.  

"Really? Well, I saw and heard something different." He said suspicious.  

"W-what do you mean?"  

"I saw you leaving his classroom in tears and I heard you crying in the girls toilet." I gulped.  

"Was he following me?" 

"Don't worry, I won't tell anybody about the books." He pointed on the floor on his right. 

"How does he know about the books? Did he eavesdropped us?"  

"I just want to offer you some help." He backed lightly away but he was still too close for my liking. I rose my brow in question.  

"We will go to the headmasters and tell him what happened in your detention and complain about Professor Snape. Consequently, he will be discharged and he will never do this again, to any student. And you don't want to happen this to any other student, do you?" He said in a matter-of-fact tone.  

"Why is he doing this? But moreover, why is he that interested in getting rid of Snape? This can't be just because they can't stand each other." I thought. 

"So? Agreed?" He pushed me but I didn't take the bait.  

"What's the use of that? I mean, Dumbledore didn't take action against you although you performed the forbidden charm in front of him!" He clenched his jaw and came very close to me. I gulped in fear.  

I tried to concentrate on his real eye and there I saw a different man, a stranger to me, who licked his lips like a snake.  

I blinked and looked back in Moody's real eye. I wondered why I had such strange visions. And not for the first time! I saw this man in particular, in an earlier vision too. Was there something about that man? Maybe I should tell my guardian about that or maybe Dumbledore too?  

"And I dare to perform it again, not in front of the headmaster!" He said threateningly and took out his wand slowly.  

That made me angry somehow and I said while I glared at him: "And I dare to perform the killing curse not in front of the headmaster, too! Remember, you thought it very well." I narrowed my eyes and took out my wand slowly. He saw that and freed me then, backing away to let me go. 

"He's scared of me." I thought impressed by myself and savored this moment a bit longer. I glared at him angry and went past him very arrogantly to pick up my books again. Then I went back towards my chamber. My heart pounding very fast and fearing that Moody was still following me and he will do something very bad to me. That's why I increased my pace by every step I took.  

I sighed relieved when I climbed the last stairs towards the fat lady.  

"Balderdash!" I said and the fat lady shrieked in surprise.  

"Oh dear! It's 3 o'clock in the morning and you're coming now to your chambers?! Where have you been? I will call the headmaster. Right now! Headmaster! Headmast-" She screamed. 

"No! Stop it! I had detentions with Snape!" I said quickly to shut her up.  

She shrieked again but this time in horror. "Detention? And with Snape?! Poor little thing! No wonder you look so dreadful!" And finally she let me enter the Gryffindor common room. 

I looked around the room, it was empty and very quiet with the last sign of the ceased glowing fire.  

"Finally, I survived!" I sighed and looked at the books.  

"Gosh! They put me already two times in danger! I really need to know that charm to change the appearance of something!" I yawned. I didn't realized how sleepy I was until I entered the common room.  

"It's a pity! I can't look into the books now, I am too tired." I thought disappointed.  

I walked up to the girls dormitory and opened carefully the door to don't disturb the others. I walked carefully across the room towards my bed and climbed over Royalty who was fast asleep on the ground next to my bedside table with all my clothes on. I looked on my watch one last time and sighed annoyed. 3:07, I only had four hours to sleep!! I looked out the window and sighed frustrated. It already got light! I put the books under my pillow and pulled my blanket over my face.  

"Fine. Get some sleep, Galaxy!"
