14. The Dueling Club

After the Halloween incident, Lea spent every spare moment looking for the owner of the mysterious voice. After the attack, many people were int he library looking up the Chamber of Secrets. The most continuous was Hermione Granger. She was furious with herself for leaving her History of Magic 
textbook at home.


After six days of her coming in, Lea went over to talk to the Gryffindor. "Do you need a copy of A History of Magic?"


Hermione was skeptical at first. "Why you give one to me? I'm a mudblood," she spat out the last word. Lea looked at her for a second.


"Fine, don't take it. I don't care," Lea said and started walk away.


"Fine, give it," Hermione said. Lea offered the book and the girl snatched it. They ignored each other for the rest of the day.


Lea woke up the next day to a sun filled room... on the ceiling. She simply said a counter spell and fell on her bed. She quickly got off and started doing counter spells around her for poster bed. She rather enjoyed the experience of weightlessness.


That day was the first day of dueling club. It was after classes for the day. Lea knew that it would be interesting.


The day passed quickly and easily. She got no homework that day. When the day was over Lea walked calmly to the Great Hall. She filled around with the other eager kids.


Lea took a place in front of the large stage. Lockhart came on.


"Can everyone hear and see me? Good! This is a great opportunity to learn from the every best. Me," he said, somehow showing all his white teeth still. Lea hoped he choked.


"May I introduce my assistant, Professor Snape! Now, don't worry, he will be perfectly safe, I will have to hold back though!" Inwardly Lea shuddered. He is so going to get the crap beaten out of him, Lea thought.


Severus stepped up onto the stage and glared at Lockhart. Lea heard a pair of boys and a girl talking. She turned and saw Harry, Ron and Hermione talking.


"Who do you want to win," Ron asked Harry.


"Lockhart will obviously," Hermione told the pair.


"I don't care, just as long as one gets hurt," Harry replied ignoring Hermione.


"I hope Lockhart gets tossed. He is a fraud that even you should see through," Ron told her flatly.


"Are you saying I'm stupid Ronald," she started to yell.


"I hope so. They're right," Lea said with indifference. She was looking at Severus with interest. He looked as if he would murder Lockhart as he slept.


The Potter gang stared at her for a moment. "You're the Slytherin girl that lent me your text book," Hermione said.


"Yes, and your friends are correct, that man is a fraud. Along with incredibly annoying. Now be quiet, this is about to get interesting," Lea said quieting the quarreling friends.


Lockhart explained the rules of dueling. Bow, turn you back to walk away (Why turn you back on your enemy, they could kill you when your back is turned, Lea thought.), the taking of stances and finally the fighting.


Severus quickly yelled a curse at Lockhart before he knew it was coming. It knocked him of his feet and sent him spinning through the air as Severus caught his wand neatly in his left hand.


He smile a little. "Perhaps we should teach them a protection charm," Severus sneered at Lockhart.


"Yes, perfect idea. I was just about to do that too. Now why don't you do that Professor while I think up teams to spar," Lockhart said, recovering his dignity.


Severus taught them a simple protection charm, and Lockhart split everyone into pairs. There was an odd number, so Lea was partner less.


Ron and Harry had been partnered, but that didn't seem to sit well with Severus. He re-partnered them, Harry with Draco, Ron with Neville and their partners with each other.


Harry and Draco were set up on to the stage to fight as an example. Things had just gotten more interesting for Lea.
