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.


17. Running.

I don't know how long I ran for, but I knew it was longer than I intended. Before I knew it, I was in the dark trees of the Forbidden Forest. Hermione had told me about this place before, and that I wasn't to go in there under any circumstances, as it was dangerous for witches and wizards, let alone muggles. However my brain was not functioning in a sensible way at that point in time, I was thinking of Draco, and Alex. The hurt that I had caused both of them in a way. I'd lost Draco, I blamed myself for that, even though it was his father, Lucius, who was to blame ultimately. I'd lost Alex too, but I think I'd lost him even before Draco. All I knew was that my head was spinning. The brambles around me were getting thicker, and I found myself straining to see even more than before. The trees were getting closer together, and darker, like they were whispering to me to turn around, to not go deeper into the forest. Harry had told me that he had once encountered a massive spider in here, I hated spiders. The wind was howling around me through the trees, whistling in my ears so I couldn't hear much apart from the distant howl of wolves. I stumbled over a branch that lay across the path, and fell onto my knees, grazing them slightly. I was too weak to get up again, my legs were tired from running, and my head still wasn't right. The last thing I heard was the sound of heavy footsteps, and a dog barking.

The next thing I knew, I was in the hospital wing, surrounded by worried faces. I recognised some of them immediately, there was Harry, Ron, Hermione, and some of their friends. Ginny was there too, next to Harry, she looked like she had been crying. Alex was there too, on the other side of my bed, his hand in mine, his face was puffy, and his eyes were red. I gave his hand a squeeze.

He looked up at me immediately, "Louise?" He said eagerly, standing up, but not letting go of my hand.

I sat up slightly, which caught the others attention, "Have I missed much?" I let out a huge yawn.

Hermione shoves her way right to the front so she's standing next to me, a very cross expression on her face, her bushy hair is standing out everywhere more than usual, "Louise! I told you NOT to go in the Forbidden Forest, but what do you do? You go and do exactly that." She stamps her foot, glaring at Harry and Ron, "You're almost as bad as these two with rules."

Harry and Ron both look very pleased with themselves at the the sound of this, and I give them a smile, which causes Hermione to get even more angry, "Yes, I'm sorry Hermione, I won't do it again."

Ron steps forward slightly, holding a doughnut in his hand and chewing, "Louise," He says through a mouthful of food, "What exactly were you doing in there? It's bloody cool that you went, but I was wondering."

Alex looks away from me when Ron says this, "I don't really know, I just wanted to run." I reply, my voice is croaky, I think they gave me some weird magical medicine.

Madame Pomfrey, the nurse of Hogwarts, came bussling out of her office just as I replied, "Right, visiting time is over now. She needs her rest, back to your dormitories students. You'll see Louise in the morning."

Everyone said goodbye and then filed out, leaving me on my own, I felt somewhat lost without them, but I was tired never the less. There was a person in the bed opposite me, my vision was slightly blurred and it was hard for me to see who it was. I strained so I could see, even though I probably wouldn't know them. My mouth dropped open when I realised who it was, it was Draco, fast asleep opposite me.
