Toby and Harper

For the Hogwarts Contest!


4. Day 4: Thursday

I sigh and flop back onto my bed. "Why did they cancel classes today?" Out my window I can clearly see the swarm of dementors circling the school, but I still want to hear it aloud.

Juniper sits on her bed gracefully. I envy her elegance. She does everything as if it's as easy as sleeping. "The dementors." She whispers.

I bite my lip. "But now we're all bored." I look at Tamara, who is resting peacefully on her bed. "Was it honestly worth it?"

Juniper shoots me a look. "Would you rather be dead?"

I let out a noise of frustration. "No..." I confess, almost childlike.

"That's what I thought." She says, rather maturely, and for some odd reason it annoys me for a moment. Then I let the moment breeze past, as Juniper rises and fixes her hair.

"Where are you going?" I sit up and cock my head slightly to the side, in the questioning best friend sort of way.

"Nowhere!" She is quick to answer. Too quick.

"Juniper." I say, and she looks at me with her gray eyes, almost pleading for me not to pry. Respecting her wishes, I look down at my bed, and I hear her exit.

Then I myself rise, as I have somewhere to be.

I leave my corridor with nothing but a book, in order to provide myself with a cover. I move swiftly down the halls, until I reach the library.

When I enter, all heads turn to look at me, but I look away. I do not want attention. I make my way to the back of the room.

There he is.

"Harper." He sighs, and takes my head in his hands, pressing his lips to mine.

I smile against his kiss. "Nice to see you too."

His face suddenly becomes very serious. "Where is my sister?"

"What do you mean?" I ask, though I do have a recollection of her leaving me this morning, I conceal my knowledge, until I understand the situation.

"She talked to me last night before bed. She acted oddly. Nothing like I've seen her do before. I'm afraid she'll do something dangerous." He frowns and I look away.

"I didn't notice anything."

"Harper, please. We have to find her. She can't be left alone, not today. Especially..." He trails off and I wrap my arms around his waist.

"It'll be fine. She can't have gone far."

He nods, but he is still unsure. His eyes hide nothing. "I'm sorry." He mutters.

"About what?" I say, turning to leave.

"This day was supposed to be about us, and I've gone and ruined it." He looks at me in a way I've never seen him act before. It's almost like... "I love you." The words tumble out of his mouth so quickly, I stand for a moment, trying to decide if they actually came out of his mouth.

I smile and peck him on the lips. "I love you too." Then I grab his hand. "C'mon. Let's go find Juniper."
