53. The Worries Of The First Task

I went back to the library without Hermione. She said she has to do some homework and preferred doing it in the common room because Krum was in the library and every girl was following him hysterically. Well, that annoyed her.
I knew what she meant when I entered the library again but I liked it. After all, I wasn't in the library for studying. I just wanted to concentrate on what happened the last few days. I sat down and took out a book from my bag. I opened it and pretended to read. 
But as I opened it a little piece of paper flew out under my chair. I bent down and realized that it was a photo. 
I grabbed it and looked at it. I felt immediately something strange in my stomach. A smiling Remus and a transforming woman in his arm were looking at me.
"He was quite taken by you, as he is by Tonks." I remembered what Mr. Black wrote in his letter. 
But what did he mean by 'quite taken by you'? And why was he taken by me? And why by Tonks? And why was I jealous?! I like him as a friend but why do I have to be jealous?! I angrily threw the photo back in the book. I sighed. I reached back and took the photo again. I folded it in the middle, the part of Tonks vanished and only Remus was smiling at me. I smiled lightly back. My stomach felt more strange now. I carefully placed the photo in the book again and closed it. 
An other book about healing potions should help me to figure out what happened the last few days. 
The very first thing I had to think about was Karkaroff. The way he acted and behaved made me very uncomfortable. But when he tried to kiss me yesterday... I shuddered at this thought.
I turned to the next page.
Somehow, I felt ashamed that I attracted a man like him, it made me feel like a whore. 
He was a former death eater, it was obvious he would behave like that. 
But the question was, how did he trick Dumbledore and the goblet? 
"I guess dark magic beats everything." I thought.
I turned to the next page.
And Moody? Mr. Black said that Moody was for our security here but why did I feel something strange then? And what was about that vision I got when I see him? Should I tell Dumbledore about it? I mean, there must be something very important to it, otherwise I wouldn't get that vision, right?
I turned to the next page.
At the very end there was Neville and that dream about his parents. What role played this dream and the Longbottom family in all this?
All this didn't seem to make any sense but nevertheless they were important pieces of a puzzle. 
I turned to the next page.
What I needed to do was to wait and see and let everything reveal itself. 
I flipped for the last time to the next page and stared in my book.


In the night.
Since I fall asleep I slept very bad. I tossed me from side to side, I rolled through my bed and it didn't seem to help much. 
Moreover, I had a dream again. This time it was about Harry and a dragon. Harry was in a little stone arena, the crowd sitting all around him on a stand and cheering. He looked very nervous but yet he focused very hard on his wand. 
The next part was that Harry was flying on his broom and the dragon was following him in the sky. 
The last piece which I saw was, the dragon was whipping him with its tail and beating him off his broom and Harry was falling down. 

I sat up in my bed with a start. 
I was breathing heavy and sweat was all over my forehead and neck. I fumbled for my wand under my pillow to perform a silencing charm. I didn't want the others and especially Hermione to wake up. 
My shaking hand wept the sweat away while my wand hand clasped nervously my wand.
"Harry is in great danger! I have to warn him!" I looked at my clock. It was 3:47. 
"In nearly ten ours the first task will start. I have to find Harry before he attends his task! He can't participate! Maybe I should tell Dumbledore too." 
I threw my bed sheets away and stopped before jumping out of my bed.
"They all would be asleep now and it would be very inappropriate to disturb the headmaster that late." I thought. 
I sighed and crawled back in my bed and pulled my sheets back over me. 
"I will stay awake until 6 o'clock. Then I will wait downstairs." I decided. 
I stared at the ceiling and slowly realized that my eyes closed. I teared them open. 
"I can't fall asleep! Not now!!" I said angrily to me. 
Why does one always fall asleep in the very last 2/3 hours of a night but stay awake the other whole part?! That wasn't fair!! 
But in the end, I lost the fight against my sleepiness and dozed off like a new born.


The same day at noontime. 
"Galaxy?" A soft voice called me.
I grumbled. 
"Galaxy!" A harsher voice said and someone shook me.
I opened my eyes a little. Ginny and Hermione were standing beside my bed and tried to wake me up. Royalty was on the right side of my bed.
I moaned. 
"Wake up, Galaxy. It's already one o'clock." Hermione said. 
I nodded and fall back in my bed. But then I startled up in shock. My eyes flew open and I sat upright in my bed. 
"Do you feel alright, Galaxy? We tried to wake you up since breakfast." Ginny asked worried.
But I ignored her anxiousness.
"What? It's already one o'clock?!" I jumped out of my bed and threw my boots on. I ran downstairs in my night clothes and saw Fred and George. 
"Guys! Where is Harry?" I asked them. They looked at each other and then at me teasingly. But I ignored it.
"Don't know." George said.
"He left earlier in the morning. But he should be at the place where the first task would start just in an hour." Fred said. My eyes widened.
"Want to bet who's going to win?" Both asked together.
"Where is it?" I asked ignoring their silliness again.
"In the middle of the grounds." Ginny said from behind. She, Hermione and Ro were downstairs now too.
"Galaxy. What's the matter?" Hermione said.
"I need to find Harry before he attends the first task." I said determined and ran out of the chamber.
"Ro! Help me finding Harry!" I said to him in my mind.
He too ran downstairs with me but he was quicker in crossing the busy grounds. 
I asked several students on my way where Harry was but I always got the same answers: 'Don't know.', 'Already gone for the first task.' and 'He's a cheater and I hope he will lose.' 
For more than half an hour Ro and I searched for him. 
Only then we tried to search for him in the tent where the champions were. 
I ran towards the tent and pushed the sheets away to enter the comfortable stay of the champions. I was able to open the tent a little and catching a glimpse of Harry when he pulled out a miniature dragon out of a little bag when I was turned around. It was very fast and I believed that I was falling down but I was wrong, strong arms hold me by my upper arms. 
"What on earth do you think you are doing here?" Professor Snape hissed.
"I- I ... Harry is in great danger!" I blurt out. 
He rose an eyebrow. 
"And what makes you believe this beside the fact that he is participating in the Trivizard Tournament?" He said arrogantly. 
My cheeks reddened and made me feel stupid in front of him. "He was right. The tournament was a dangerous matter. Danger was not an unexpected factor in all this." I thought.
"I... actually... had a feeling about that." My mouth managed to say.
"Well, then I hope you also have a feeling about being in your night clothes." My cheeks went more red. I nodded briefly. 
"I suggest you to change and keep the honor of our school or otherwise be prepared for two weeks of detent-" He was cut off by the sound of a cannon. He glared at me and nodded his head towards the other side of the tent. I obeyed abashed. 
We climbed the stands together until I reached the students part with Hermione, Ron, Fred, George and Ginny standing there. Snape went up to the other professors and Mr. Crouch, the whole time watching me close. 
"Where have you been?" Ginny asked. Right then Royalty jumped up beside me. 
"Got him?" He asked. I shook my head. "No, Snape stopped me." I answered back in my head.
"I searched for Harry." I answered Ginny.
"I talked to him in the tent. He was very nervous." Hermione said worried. 
"What?! Snape stopped me just when I was entering it! Didn't he stop you?!" I asked aghast. 
"No, he didn't." A great anger arouse from inside of me. 
"If something happens to Harry, Snape will be responsible for it!" I said.
"What do you mean?" Ron asked worried.
"I had a vi-" Before I was able to continue the dragon of Cedric Diggory spitted fire and cut me off. Everyone's attention was on the burnt face of Cedric. But I was not paying attention. I was worried to death and shot angry looks at Snape who was looking very interested at the spectacle under him. 
Somehow Cedric succeeded the first task as Fleur and Victor. 
Now it was Harry's turn and he got my complete attention!
He was entering the stony landscape unsure. He made out his surrounding and spotted the golden egg which every champion has to catch to enter the second task. Harry made a run towards it but the dragon appeared and flamed him. He jumped behind a rock just in time.
"Use your wand, Harry!" Hermione screamed but I doubted that he heard her in that noise. The dragon followed Harry and tried to get rid of him and Harry tried to survive. Just when Harry was out of the sight for the dragon he hold out his wand and concentrated very hard on it, as I saw it in my dream.
Suddenly out of nowhere Harry's broom came zooming towards him and he jumped on it and rose up in the sky. The whole arena erupted in cheers and applause.
"Right now everything seems to be fine. Just like my dream at the beginning." I thought. I gulped and prayed that my dream was wrong and I was worrying for nothing.
Harry was teasing the dragon but at some point the dragon had enough and chased after him, only the chains were holding it back from flying after Harry and munch him in one bite. 
"Thanks to the ministry for such security precautions." A boy on my left said but as this words left his mouth the chains broke and the dragon was flying above our heads and chasing after Harry. Harry flew away and tried to shake it off by flying through the teachers compartment. But it didn't help much, the dragon went after him and destroyed the half compartment lazily. I gasped.
"Snape!" I whispered in shock. I wanted to run to him and see if he was alright but Ro stopped me. 
"You can't, Galaxy! There are a few other people like professors and especially someone from the ministry!" He was right. I nodded and remained looking worriedly at Snape.
The professors were complete fine, only they had lost their seats but why is there someone from the ministry if not for recreating seats? Though Mr. Crouch jinxed a new compartment for them.
Now we waited for Harry. After every second my suspicion of Harry's death grew bigger and bigger. I never worried for someone that much than Harry, well, I did, for my father when he was dying. 
I bit my lip and walked on that little space on the stands up and down. I thought about what I could do for Harry. The only thing which seemed to be right was to go to the headmaster and beg him to suspend the first task for Harry. 
"But what if he just came flying back as nothing happened with a knocked out dragon under his arm? What if he makes it?" I asked myself. I sighed. 
"Fine! I will give him 200 seconds!" I decided and started counting.
1-2-3-4 ...37-38-39... There was no Harry. 69-70-71-72... And no Harry anywhere. 123-124-125... A bright blue sky without Harry. 
150-151-152-153... There was still no sign of a boy with messed dark brown/black hair, glasses and a scar on his forehead. 194-195-196-197 "Come on, Harry! Come on!" I mumbled. 198-199- 
"Look! Over there!!" A little boy shouted. Everyone followed his pointing finger. 
A drunken fly followed by smoke was flying to us. 
Everyone applauded and cheered and hugged his or her neighbor in excitement. 
"Harry! You made it!!" I said relieved. 
Harry, the fly, was flying on his broom, a little drunken because his broom caught fire when the dragon spitted fire. 
He landed in the stone arena and caught the golden egg! 
"Yeah!! Harry!! Our champion!!" Hermione, Ginny, Fred, George, me and even Ron were shouting this and celebrating him. 
I ran down and knocked off nearly everyone in my way. I entered the champions tent and walked out towards Harry and the celebrating crowd. Harry's back was turned to me while he hold up the egg to be celebrated by the cheering people.
"Harry!" I screamed happy. He turned around but before he realized who I was he was already buried in my hug. 
"You did it!!" I said in his chest and cried relieved. I felt as all my worries swept away!
"I-I thought... you-you would die." I said between sobs and didn't realized that the crowd cheered more louder after I hugged him. 
"Well, you were quite wrong." He said a little forced. Right then the others came and Fred and George carried him on their shoulders back to the Gryffindor tower. 
Harry was happily carried away while everyone, besides the exchange students and Slytherin pupils, celebrated wild. 
What would happen in the common room if they all already went crazy outside and started partying hard on the grounds? I shook my head and smiled.
"I guess, I would have to find out myself." And I followed the crowd back to the common room.
