31. Improvement

Besides the matter of Professor Snape everything was good, as far as it was possible.

I set hard on my studies and there were little successes. For instance, I recognized a star structure in Astronomy, I only fell 4 times than 7 times from my broom in Broom Flying, my wand practice and technique improved and in Study of Muggles, not the toughest subject for me, I was always one of the best with Hermione. In fact, Hermione was in every subject the best! That's why I always learn with her. She was just outstanding!!

Well, but one thing made me wonder, in the very first lesson of DADA with that crazy and scary Professor Moody and his always moving eye.  

The Professor used the unforgivable curses. At the beginning I considered to complain this to the headmaster but then I thought that he must be in the picture of Professor Moody's approach.  

"Ministry malcontent. And your new defence against the dark arts teacher. I'm here because Dumbledore asked me, end of story, good bye, the end. Any questions?  

When it comes to the dark arts, I believe in practical approach." he said fast after he wrote his name on the board. He scared us with his last statement. But honestly, his whole appearance scared everyone, me too!  

"But first, which of you can tell me how many unforgiveable curses there are?" he asked further.  

Hermione answered of course: "Three, Sir." 

"And they are so named?"  

"Because they are unforgiveable. Use of any one of them will ..." she continued answering but Moody finished for her.  

"... will earn you a one way ticket to Azkaban. Correct.  

Now the ministry says you're too young to see what these curses do. I say different!" Everyones eyes popped out of their heads in disbelieve.

"Is he going to use them in front of us students? Will he really demonstrate the unforgiveable curses? And will he teach us these curses?!" Everyone asked in their heads. 

"You need to know what you're up against, you need to be prepared, you need to find some where else to put your chewing gum other than the underside of your desk Mr. Finnigan." 

Finnigan muttered something whereupon Professor Moody threw chalk through the classroom.  

Then he turned around and started walking in the class. Every student was more terrified now.

"So, which curse shall we see first? Weasley!" he called Ron and he stood up terrified.


"Give us a curse." Ron gulped and thought of a curse.

"Well, my dad did tell me about one... The imperious curse."

"How does his dad know about it?" I asked myself. 

Moody turned around satisfied.

"Ahhh yes, your father would know all about that. Gave the ministry quite a bit of grief a few years ago. Perhaps this will show you why." He went to the reservoirs with insects, worms and little animals in them and took a spider for demonstration.  

Suddenly he pointed his wand at the spider and let it flew through the classroom. Every pupil got uncomfortable.

"Don't worry. Completely harmless. But if she bites ... she's lethal." Moody comforted us but failed. Then he put the spider in nearly everyone face and the whole class laughed. But the most fun was when he did this on Draco.  

Moody swung with his arm and let the spider fly against the window then.

"Talented isn't she? What shall I have her do next? Jump out the window?" Everyone stopped laughing.

"Drown herself?" Everyone gulped when the spider fidgeted on the edge of a bucket full of liquid. But Moody brought her back safely on the table.

"Scores of witches and wizards have claimed that they only do did you-know-whose bidding under the influence of the imperious curse. But there's the rub, how do we sort out the liars? Another... another... come on, come on! Longbottom is it? Up!" Hermione looked very pitiful at Neville, I didn't know why.  

Neville told Moody the cruciatus curse. It was the torture curse and I asked myself again how they all knew about those curses.  

Moody took the boy with him in front of the spider. He pointed his wand at the still terrified spider and tortured her. I didn't know what the spider felt but it was certainly horrible because I heard a spider squealing for the very first time in my life. 

Only Hermione had enough courage to stop this unbearable torment: "Stop it! Can't you see it's bothering him. Stop it!"

"Wait, Hermione! It's the spider and not the boy!" I thought but when I looked at Neville I thought different. 

Moody stopped. But instead of taking care of the terrified boy he kept on 'teaching' and placed the spider in front of Hermione on her book.  

"Perhaps you could give us the last unforgivable course, Miss Granger?" She bravely shook her head. But it had no use. The professor said something unfamiliar and the spider dissipated in front of all pupils eyes.  

"The killing curse. Only one person is known to have survived it. And he's sitting in this room." He walked towards Harry and looked at him strangely when he took a sip from his bottle and turned around.  

"All of you, on your tables! Hurry up! I will now curse you with the imperious curse. Your task is to resist it. Ready? Go!" We were scared and actually we didn't want to stand on our tables and be cursed with the imperious curse after what we saw but no one dared to resist after Hermione did and saw what happened then. 

Well, we all were made to dance on the tables. It was actually funny but I felt something ... wicked through my body.  

Professor Moody said we should try to resist the urge of dancing but he didn't say how. So, I closed my eyes and made my body stiff, well I tried to.  

And then I thought about my swimming lessons in my former school and how I drifted in the water when everybody was gone and I was the only one in the pool after our lessons. It was always a great pleasure to be on your own in the water and relax for a while, pure heaven!! 

Yeah, coming back to that happening, well, Hermione gasped suddenly and I wondered why so I opened my eyes and looked at her.  

"How do you do it?" She asked wonderly.


"Don't be stupid, Galaxy! How do you resist the curse?!" I thought that she was kidding but if it hadn't be Hermione I would have laughed.  

And then I realised that I was not fidgetting around like the others, I was still standing on my place. I looked around in the class and saw that Harry was standing motionless too, like me. We looked at each other in wonder, up and down.  

"Ah! Look who were successful? The boy who lived and the auspicious Lady. Who would have thought something else?" Professor Moody released the others and we all climbed down from our desks.

Then he walked up to Harry and said to him: "Very good, Choosen one!"

And then he walked up to me and said: "We are all very curious to know what you are capable of!" I didn't know in which eye I had to look but I looked in his right one, which was between his eyelids. And there I saw something dark, very dark but I kept the stare until he turned around and dismissed us. Yeah. Strange. 

When we walked downstairs to get to our next period Ron was raving of Professor Moody. But Hermione wasn't that taken by her new professor.  

"There's a reason those curses are unforgiveable and to perform them in a classroom. I mean did you see Neville's face?" Harry poked her to signalize her that they were passing Neville who was staring at the window with rain drps falling down.

"Neville?" I tried to speak to him but Moody of all people came down and took Neville back to his office. He had to show him something on a cup of tea. I narrowed my eyebrows and worried about Neville. I hopeed Mad-eye Moody won't show him something like the torture curse which made him feel very low.

And then I joined the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare 

(S.P.E.W.) founded by Hermione, I am infact the deputy head!  

Then I was told who Sirius Black was, the goduncle of Harry. He wrote a letter to him or rather he answered to Harry's letter. There I realised that Harry had even more to do with that upcoming war than I assumed before and I decided to spend more time with Harry to find out what exactly he was hiding. 

Apropos, letter! I wrote back home after my first school day and left naming that incident at the very beginning. I just left everything out, infact, I only wrote that I arrived safe and everything is nice here. I hoped that it wouldn't be very awkward for my mom to receive a letter from an owl than from a postman.  

Actually, I took my mobile phone with me to Hogwarts but I had no signal in the school other wise I had called her. And at first it didn't worked at all and I asked Hermione why. She answered that no Muggle stuff is working at Hogwarts.  

Then I was very sad because on my phone was my whole music and I can't live without music! So I immediately run to the headmaster and he fixed that with a charm. He even wanted to listen to a few songs! Very funny!! However, I was now able to listen to music!  

One last thing I had to say is that I was now in the habit of jogging for 40 min every morning before the sun rises and doing Yoga and Meditation during the rising of the sun for 1 hour and 20 min. Yeah, I know I am strange. I didn't even do that at home but... I don't know why I did it here. I was sleeping very bad anyway and I always woke up at 4 in the morning then, so I thought of doing something useful before breakfast! Infact, Professor McGonagal ordered me to do more sports! 

Oh, shit! I forgot!! Professor Snape will give me back my test about the 5 books tomorrow! Gosh! It was sooo bad! Pray for me!
