3. The Letter

I woke up early the next day, earlier then any of the other Slytherin first years; I slipped out of my bed and put my Slytherin robes on, ugh, Slytherin. I wasn't going to get used to that. I had always thought of my self as a Gryffindor, but no, I guess I was wrong. I quietly slipped out of the dorm room and went down the stairs to the common room; it was verygreen, green couches, Slytherin flags, green rug in the middle of the floor, the rest of the room was silver, not very inviting I might say… As I walked down the stairs, I noticed that three boys were awake before me, they were sitting on the couches and near to the fireplace, as I walked further down the stairs I could make out who it was, It was Scorpius Malfoy and two of his friends, very large friends they were too. I smiled to my self as I thought of the stories that my Dad had told me when I was younger, the stories about Draco, Crabbe and Goyle. He had told me that Draco was probably only friends with them because they were big, muscled and very stupid; I guessed that this was the same for Scorpius. He must have needed body guards.

"Oi, Potter!" Scorpius said.

I looked up at him. "Yes?" I asked as I started to walk to the door of the common room.

"What did my dad say to you when he brought you to his office?" Scorpius asked.

I shook my head, frowning, but decided it was easier to just answer him. "Gave me Detention" I said.

"Good." Scorpius said, smirking at me.

I glared at him and shoved my hand in my robe pocket, clutching my wand, I wanted to hex him again, so bad but I decided that it was better not to get myself into more trouble; I knew that Scorpius would just go running to his father anyway.

"Mmm" I said in reply before quickly climbing out of the portrait hole. I started to walk up some stairs and made my way to the great hall, there weren't many people up, but James and Albus were awake and sitting at the Gryffindor table, they usually woke up early too. I walked over to them, smiling slightly.

"Hello." I said.

James looked up, "Oh, hey Lil's." James said.

"What did Malfoy say to you when he took you out of the hall last night?" Albus asked, looking up at me and smiling.

"Oh. I got detention." I said and rolled my eyes.

James smirked "You got detention, on the first day? That has got to be some sort of record." He teased.

I laughed "Must be." I said.

"I didn't even know that Malfoy was going to be a teacher..." Albus said and looked at James.

"I think he's just here to look after Scorpius…" James said, smirking.

"He's head of Slytherin now, you know." Albus said.

I groaned "Well that's going to be fun." I muttered.

"Having fun in Slytherin?" Albus asked, looking at me again.

I narrowed my eyes "You know I don't want to be in Slytherin." I hissed, frowning at him. "I'm going to get some breakfast… I'll talk to you later." I said and turned around to walk to the Slytherin table; I took my seat and started to eat some toast, I pulled out my Potions book and started to re-read it, Potions and Defence against the dark arts were my favourite subjects, I had read through all of my school books but they were definitely my favourite two subjects.

A little while later, the great hall had started to fill up, full of chatting students. Draco Malfoy came over with our school time tables, he handed it to me, not saying anything.

"Thanks." I muttered when he gave it to me. I looked at the timetable, first year Slytherin's had double potions and then transfiguration and after break we had defence against the dark arts and then charms. I smiled slightly, it was going to be a pretty good day, and at least I didn't have history of magic today.

About five minutes later the post arrived, my Dad's owl came flying towards me, dropped a letter then went over to James and Albus. I opened it quickly and read it:

To Lily,

I hope you don't mind being sorted into Slytherin Lily, I and your Mother are very proud of you.

I got a letter from Draco Malfoy last night, try and not get another detention from him, you don't want to get on his bad side, he could easily make you're life a living hell.

I laughed a little at this, like my life wasn't already a living hell, but I continued to read.

Just to remind you, the full moon is coming close and since Malfoy is the potions master, I asked him to make you some wolfsbane potion, I know, I know, you would rather him not to know, but since I did save his life in the war, he has agreed not to tell anyone (not even his son) and to make you the potion, we were sending letters to each other last night.

I have been offered a place at Hogwarts, too, Lily, A defence against the dark arts position! It won't be forever, just a short period at most, two years, since the defence against the dark arts teacher that is currently there wants to have a break from teaching, so you might be seeing me sooner then you think!

Your Mum sends her love,

See you soon!

Dad.

I read the letter over and over again, until it was time to get to class, I put the letter safely in my bag and started down the stairs to the dungeons. I sat in the middle of the class, so that I wouldn't look too eager, but I wouldn't look like I didn't want to pay attention. No one sat beside me, not that I really cared, but it would have been nice to have some one to sit beside… my thoughts were interrupted by Draco Malfoy coming in and glaring at the class.

"I will not expect you all to be great at potions; it takes great skill to brew a potion." Malfoy said, I laughed a little under my breath, as if he had any 'skill'

Draco glared at me "Something funny, Potter?" He hissed.

I shook my head "No, Sorry sir." I muttered.

"Turn to page three in your book and begin to brew that potion; I want to see if you people have any natural skill." He said and waved his wand, Cauldrons and ingredients appeared in front of all of the students, I took out my book and opened page number three, it was a simple potion, the cure for boils, I worked my was through it quickly, crushing the snake fangs and then heating the mixture up, I added the horned slugs and then the porcupine Quills, then I stirred it three times, clockwise. I was done before anyone else in the class. Draco didn't seem too happy about this. He came over and looked in my Potion.

"Well, Well, Well, Potter. It looks like you have skill in potion making, unlike your father." Draco said, still staring into the potion and hoping that he could find something wrong with it.

"Thanks." I muttered, looking at the potion too.

"And I haven't forgotten about your detention." Draco added before walking away and looking at the other student's potions.

The rest of the day flew past and now I was on my way to detention with Draco Malfoy. I knocked on his office door and waited for him to tell me to come inside

"Come in." He said.

I pushed the door open and walked inside "Hello Sir." I muttered, looking to the ground.

"Potter" He said with a nod of his head.

"Well, I'll be making you some wolfsbane potion while you clean out all of the cauldrons, by hand." Draco said and pointed to the stack of potions in the back of the room.

"Fine" I said and walked to the stack of cauldrons. Draco waved his wand and a sponge and a water basin appeared next to the cauldrons. I picked the sponge up and started to clean out the cauldrons.

After a while of silence, Draco finally spoke up. "When did you become a werewolf?" he asked, as if it was normal conversation.

I clenched my fists; I knew if I yelled or threw a spell at him it would just make matters worse, he could think up far worse detentions then this.

"Does it matter?" I asked, trying to sound as calm as possible.

"I'm just wondering…" Draco said, a smirk forming on his face, it seemed as if he already knew…

"Two years ago" I said.

"Ahh, do you know who bit you?" He asked, not looking at me but at the potion.

"Fenrir Greyback." I muttered, looking at the cauldron as if it was very interesting.

"Oh. I knew him." He said.

"Of course you did." I said, looking up at him and narrowing my eyes.

"Do you know why he attacked you, hmm?" Draco asked, looking right back at me.

"No, my dad never told me." I said, my eyes widened a little out of curiosity, I had always wanted to know.

"Well, your dad wasn't the only one who was there when Greyback received the Veritaserum." Draco said.

My eyes widened "Will you tell me?" I asked.

Draco paused for a second "Greyback said that he wanted to get your father back for killing the dark lord, he didn't want to kill Harry, but he did want to hurt him in someway, he waited in the forest for one of your family to come outside, and there you were. He had wanted to attack Ginny, but when he saw you…" Draco said as he stirred his potion. "Well, he likes to bite children." Draco said.

I shook my head and looked back at the cauldron, thinking things over, this just made me wish more that I hadn't walked outside that night. "Oh." I muttered.

After another half an hour I had finished cleaning out all of the cauldrons.

"Sir?" I asked.

"Yes?" Draco asked, looking up at me.

"I've finished." I said.

"Alright, you may leave." Draco said, still concentrating on the potion.

"Bye." I said and walked outside of his office and to the Slytherin common room, I had a little bit of homework I needed to do.

I walked to one of the tables in the common room and pulled out the schoolbooks from my backpack, I had charms and transfiguration homework, but both were really easy.

The common room was fairly full and I got my homework done fairly quickly, so I went to the great hall to get some dinner. It was chicken casserole today, I took a bowl of it and sat down at the Slytherin table and looking over at the Gryffindor table.

Albus, James, Hugo and Rose were all having dinner and talking together, I wished I could go over there and sit with them, but I just looked back down at my dinner and started eating, I was really bored. I stopped eating and took a drink of my pumpkin juice; I was pretty full from my dinner now.

I went to bed soon after dinner; I had nothing better to do then that anyway.
