6. I fight to my death

I was sitting in the Gryffindor Common Room. It was around 2:30-3:00 am. I was thinking about what was to become of me at the next detentions with the stupid Professor Umbridge. Oh how I dreaded those next days. I had talked to Fred and George  before they had gone to their bedroom. They thanked me for hitting Seamus, believe it or not. We tried to convince Fred to charm Professor Sprout's hat off of her head, with Wingardium Leviosa.

“C’mon Fred,” I tried to convince him. “It’s not going to be any different from years past. You've always charmed her hat off! And it's hilarious!”

“Easy for you to say, you’ve never done it before.” Fred replied.

“What’s the worst thing that’s going to happen?” I continued. “That Umbridge is going to find out and he'll... oops, I mean she'll, have us punished?” Fred cracked a grin and I was sure that George was about to piss himself with all of the laughter going on.

Anyways, I was sitting in the chair closet the fireplace, and watching the flames dance into the chimney. I’ve always wondered where that chimney leads. I heard the portrait hole open and assumed it was Professor McGonagall who comes in and checks on us. Then I heard the giggle. THE giggle. Umbridge’s giggle. That little “mmh-hmm” She always does.

“What do we have here?” She asked me.

“Nothing ma’am.” I replied and stood up. “Just going up to my dorm now.” She gripped tight on my shoulder and forced me to take a seat. She sat on one of the sofas across from me and asked me

“Do you know why I’m here?” I wanted to reply “To make my life miserable?” but held the insult on the tip of my tongue, not letting the words of the insult form. So, I safely replied

“No ma’am.” I carefully formed the words with my mouth.

“Why do you think I’m here?” She asked me with a stern look on her face.

“To make sure I go to sleep?” I asked.

“Actually yes.” She replied. I didn’t like the looks of where this conversation was going. “You, young lady, are in my way. You and your two ginger friends are making it difficult to establish stern rules here. A safe school needs strict rules and you, my dear, are trying my patience thin. So, to answer your question, I am putting you to sleep. Permanently.” Umbridge told me as she stood up. “Muffliato.” She said. I didn’t notice anything different, so I thought it was for noise prevention.

“Expelliarmus!” I screamed. Umbridge’s wand flew out of her hands. She merely smirked.

“Accio wand.” Damn, she was good. “Now, I believe you wanted to put the Mudblood in her place.” Umbridge was talking to somebody behind me.

“Hello, girl.” A raspy voice said from behind me. “Time to put you in your place.” I turned around and there stood Bellatrix Lestrange. “Crucio!” she screamed. I crumpled to the floor gasping for breath.
