Wizarding Week

Louise has always dreamt of going somewhere completely new, and when her school organises an exchange with a mysterious school called Hogwarts, it's her perfect moment. Louise doesn't realise the magic behind the doors of Hogwarts, and maybe, just maybe, she might even fit in with the people there more.


14. Adjusting.

That day was certainly an interesting day, what with Draco and Dumbledore as well. It wasn't until I was up in the Gryffindor common room where I could really adjust to what happened. I decided to write in my diary, which I hadn't been using while at Hogwarts because I'd been so busy. The spine was slightly worn, and I'd doodled all over the cover. It made me sad for a moment, remembering how life had been when I was just a normal girl, without a care in the world. I didn't know who Draco was and I'd never heard of Hogwarts, but was I happier? I don't think I was.

Dear Diary,

Hey there. I've missed writing to you. But I don't really know how else to express myself apart from in here. So many things have happened and I just don't know anything anymore. In the past week, I've found a whole new world, things I had no idea ever existed have sprung into life, and I fell in love, got my heart broken, made new amazing friends that I hope to have in my life for a very long time. 

The truth is, I'm a witch. I can't believe I'm writing this but I am, I truly am. I'm no normal teenage girl, dreaming of becoming somebody one day anymore. I'm not just some "muggle" that isn't special. I AM special. Draco can't call me anything anymore, well not "muggle" anyway, because I'm not a muggle, I'm just as magical as him. 

Annoyingly, I still love Draco, and sure, you're probably thinking, she's only known him like a week? Yes I have only known him about a week, but falling in love is like a whirlwind, you don't know it's happening, and when you find out, you get shoved into your feelings and everything head first. The problem is, he hates me, he absolutely hates me. I'm not even sure if he has any love for me anymore, that hurts. Him calling me names hurts. I hope he'll stop one day, because he doesn't mean it, he's forgotten who I am you see.

On the plus side, I'm allowed to stay at Hogwarts! Dumbledore has spoken to my parents and my old school, and they've all agreed that Hogwarts is the best place for me. I'm a bit behind on the work and such, but I'll catch up. I'm bright. Professor Dumbledore also said that I could stay in Gryffindor if I wanted to, but it might be the best idea if I tried on the sorting hat. So I did, and I came out as a Gryffindor anyway. This is all such a whirl-wind, I haven't told Hermione or anyone. I probably should. And Ginny. They'd want to know. Harry may already have told Ginny though.

Speak soon,


I closed my diary just as Hermione entered the common room, her expression was like thunder and her frizzy hair was even frizzier than usual. Her fists were clenched, and one of them was very red, from the evidence I could see, it looked like she had just punched someone, which was very unlike Hermione.

"I swear to god..." she was muttering under her breathe as she walked over to me, "I am going to kill that boy. How dare he? How dare he?"

I was by her side immediately, "Hermione, what's wrong? If Ron has done something, I will kill him." 

She shook her head vigorously, making her curls shake even more, I had never seen her look so angry, "Malfoy." She spat out, "Malfoy, what a completely disgusting boy. He was calling me names, the usual, and then he started to insult you to me. I couldn't handle it Louise, I just couldn't. I couldn't watch him standing there, speaking about you in that way. So I..." She paused as I stared at her, my eyes wide with shock, as she finally said, "Punched him in the face. No magic involved. Ginny was there too, she's still sorting him out, but I wanted to find you, to tell you."

At first, I didn't have anything to say, I was stunned, and I needed to find Ginny, "Thank you Hermione, for everything. I need to go and find Ginny, and speak to Draco." I gave her shoulder a squeeze and tried to slip past her to get to the door, but she grabbed my arm.

"Louise," Her grip tightened slightly, "Please don't go to him, he'll upset you. He's a bad person."

My voice wobbled slightly as I said, "I love him Hermione. I have to go." At this, she let go.
