9. Snivellus

Ruby's P.O.V


We just had a very strange class, it's called Defense Against the Dark Arts, we shared it with the Gryffindors, Alex came alone, they took the wizards of their house and some of ours to do some sort of exam called OWLs or whatever, I sat by her, Katy and her friends were all taken so I was alone too.

I really liked that class, it was strange in a good way, it seemed pretty important to the wizards, they had to learn how to use magic against their enemies, absolutely helpful, we used to take a class similar to this, it was just called diffidence however. Right after the class was over I was walking with Alex and we were talking about the class we just had, I was asking her about her house but then I saw Severus walking out of the great hall, followed by four boys, the ones Kyle sat with yesterday. Severus really should take a shower! His hair was even more greasy than it was this very morning. The four boys were talking about the test, three of them laughing, the forth wasn't. They sat by a tree and one of them got some sort of ball that looked like it could fly, a small golden one with wings, it was pretty awesome, he kept on flying it as far as his hands could reach, an then catching it again, the second was reading and the third admiring the boy who was playing with the ball. 

I suddenly saw Kyle appear from the right and sit with them, they greeted him cheerfully.

"Oh, here's Kyle!" Alex said. "Let's go sit with him." 

We were going to sit with him but the boys stood up.


Kyle's P.O.V


"Look who it is." James said after having a conversation with Sirius about the cool flying ball he was playing with. 

"Excellent, Snivellus." He said softly.

"All right Snivellus?" James stood up and said aloud. A black-greasy-haired boy sat alone, James apparently was talking about him, somehow Snivellus didn't seem to be his name, it was more like a joke. 'Snivellus' was on his feet too, he dropped the bag he was wearing to the ground, and got something from the inside of his robes, a wand. I was looking between James and Snivellus, James had his wand before Snivellus did, I instantly heard him shout.


It seemed like a spell, and it was too, for instantly after he said it Snivellus's wand flew in the air. I heard a great laugh behind me, it was Sirius. What were these boys doing? Because it diffidently didn't seem like joking to me, it seemed like bullying. Another fast movement by James came,

"Impedemina!"  Sirius said from behind me. Snivellus was knocked off the ground, just like his wand did. Students circled around us then, I looked at them and I found Ruby and Alex, they questioned me with their eyes, I just shook my head, I had no idea what they were doing an why they were doing it.

"How'd the exam go, Snivelly?" said James. 

"I was watching him, his nose was touching the parchment," said Sirius. "There'll be great grease marks all over it, they won't be able to read a word."

Some of the students watching began to laugh, I didn't, neither did Ruby and Alex.

"Oh no it's Severus not Snivellus, you probably don't know his name." Ruby said dumbly.

"I do know his name, but I think that Snivellus suites him better, well don't you?" James asked.

Snape tried to get on his feet, but he failed, something was preventing him. 

"You - wait. You - wait!" He said panting.

"Wait for what?" said Sirius coolly. "What're you going to do, Snivelly, wipe your nose on us?"

Snape began to swear and say some words that I didn't even know the meaning of. 

'Wash out your mouth, Scourgify!"  James took the lead now again. Snape's mouth filled with soap, it made him choke.

"Leave him ALONE!" 


James's P.O.V


"Leave him ALONE!" I heard the familiar voice shout. I looked around and found out it was Lily, of course. I've been checking her and her friends in the pond, now she had to come and fight for her pathetic friend. I instantly got my hand to my hair.

"All right, Evans?" I asked, trying to sound as cool as possible. 

"Leave him alone," Lily repeated. looking at me like I was something disgusting. "What's he done to you?" Oh how much I love her when she's angry. 

"Well," I said slowly. "it's more the fact that he exists, if you know what I mean" I winked her. I had some response from the crowd around me, many of them started laughing.

"You think you're funny, but you're just an arrogant, bullying toerag, Potter. Leave him alone." She said. Snape was still up in the air, it's ok, he deserved it.

"I will if you go out with me, Evans, go with me and  I'll never lay a wand on old Snivelly again." I took my chance. I wasn't looking now at Snape, neither did I care about him, or thinking of him, I had all my mind with Lilly, with her eyes, her beautiful red hair and her frown that was killing me. Yes, I did like her when she was angry, but I hated her to get angry because of me. 

"How pathetic!" I heard a blonde girl from the crowd,  she was one of the guests, Kyle's friend I guess, I just ignored her and turned to Lily.

"I wouldn't go out with you if it was a choice between you and the giant squid." Lily said. Ouch! she didn't really mean it, right? 

"Bad luck, Prongs," I heard Sirius say. "OI!" 

I got my attention to what Sirius was watching, I was too late. Snape was on his feet again, he hit me with a spell and my robes were full of my own blood. My rage was horrible, I immediately got my want and shot him to the sky, got him hanging upside down until his robes were covering his face and his underpants were clear to be seen. Many people in the small crowd cheered, including Kyle's friends, Sirius, James and Wormtail roared with laughter of course. Lily herself was about to laugh.

"Let him down!"

"Certainly," I said, I knocked him to the ground violently. He, of course tied to cover his legs and reach his wand.

"Petrificus Totalus!"  Sirius said and Snape was as stunned as a surfing board. 

"LEAVE HIM ALONE!" Lily got her wand as if threatening me. 

"Ah, Evans, don't make me hex you," I said seriously.

"Take the curse off him, then!" 

I sighed and took the curse off, using the counter-curse of course.

"There you go," I turned to Snape. "You're lucky Evans was here, Snivellus-"

"I don't need help from filthy little Mudbloods like her!"

I was shocked, HOW DARE HE!


Lily's P.O.V


"Fine," I said coolly, although I was boiling from the inside, Sev has changed a lot, he's not the same person I met by the bushes, when I was little. He was just like them all. "I won't bother in the future. And I'd wash your pants if I were you, Snivellus."

"Apologise to Evans!" I found James's temper get as high as mine, he got his wand up in front of Severus threatening him as I did for him. 

"I don't want you to make him apologise," I shouted at him, although I was a bit delighted by what he did. "You're as bad as he is."

"What?" He asked shocekd. "I'd NEVER call you a - you-know-what!"

"Messing up your hair because you think it looks cool to look like you've just got off your broomstick, showing off with that stupid Snitch, walking down corridors and hexing anyone who annoys you just because you can - I'm surprised your broomstick can get off the ground with that fat head on it. You make me SICK." I burst and turned away, oh how angry I was. I just hated them all, I hated Severus I hated James and Sirius, I hated them all! Yes, I did love James, but I also hated him at that moment. 

"Evans!" I heard James shout behind me. "Hey, EVANS!" My heart did ache, but I just continued walking. 


Alex's P.O.V


"What is it with her?" The boy names James said. 

"Reading between the lines, I'd say she thinks you're a bit conceited, mate," said Sirius.

"Right," said James, who looked furious now, "Right -"

There was another flash of light, and Snape was once again hanging upside-down in the air.

"Who wants to see me take off Snivelly's pants?" 

"Augh!" I sighed. "Kyle are you coming with us or what?" I asked rolling my eyes. 

"Urmm," what? why was he hesitating?

"What makes you mad?" Sirius asked me.

"The same thing that made Lily get mad."  

"You don't even know anything about it." He said. why was he justifying to me?

"I know a bully when I see one." I said,

"Oh really? And do you find me a bully?" he asked. James was doing some crazy stuff to Snape. What was wrong with these guys? They sounded really good last night. I hesitated.

"Yes, yes I think you are." Sirius sighed.

"Oh, come on Ally! Let me prove you I'm not."

"Why is it so important to you?"

"Because - because it just is."

"Fine. Then prove it to me."

"I will, next week at Hogsmeade at nine in the Three Broomsticks, I will."

"Alright, then there you do."


"Fine." I said back and turned around to find Kyle and Ruby and Ethan -who came out of nowhere- walking with me. 

"What just happened?" Kyle asked me.

"I don't quite know," I said slowly. "but I guess that I have a date next week with a total stranger, that was knocking a guy off his feet." I continued realizing it. Kyle and Ruby both laughed, I soon joined them.

"So how was your day?" I asked. 

"Great." said Kyle. "They're really good, you know. There has to be an explanation for this." He said after a pause. I didn't need his explanation, I knew he was talking about his friends; Sirius and James and the other two.

"I know, I think so too." I said softly. 

Kyle then explained everything that happened with him yesterday, so did I, Ruby and Ethan, I learned about the other houses a bit, they seemed pretty cool too.  But I couldn't get my mind off Lily, James and Sirius.

"Come on now, we've got flying class." Kyle said to me. We said goodbye to the others, I got Kyle in my common room, he tried to follow me to my dormitory but he fell aback which cause me to bust out laughing  it turns out, only girls can enter boys dormitories. I took some stuff with me, and tried to look for Max, when I failed Kyle found his friends and we followed them. I began to blush when I saw Sirius, it all was so strange.
