36. Detention

James's P.O.V


Filch was of course having a blast, he just busted us and we were finally getting a detention. Something that's been more like a dream for him. I don't blame him, he barely busts us. We always know how to hide, or just simply run away, not leaving any evidence of our mischief. But not this time, we couldn't. Remus could barely walk, we were all very tired and sleepy. Mrs. Norris -Filch's cat- was walking behind us creepily, just as if she was watching us. Watching every move we took. 

"Get in." Said Filch finally. We've never entered this room, and I don't even think it's on our map, maybe we should add it. Or maybe it's not even a room, maybe it's a trap or something. 

Filch opened a door of a very small room. It had no windows, just a tiny light bulb that barely lit, I swear this was the worst place I've ever seen in Hogwarts. It was more like a cell in prison, but not in Azkaban of course, Azkaban was probably way worse. 

"What should we do there?" I asked. 

"Nothing. You should just spend the day here, and when you come out we'll see how it was." He said still grinning. "Come 'ere Mr. Norris, you don't want to stay with 'em now." He added to the cat. And just after we were all in, he shut the door behind us, with a loud thump. The room went from grey to black, despite the little light from the bulb there was complete darkness. 

"Lumos." I instantly said, illuminating my wand. Prongs and Wormtail followed me, and Moony sat on the ground.

"So, what is this place?" James asked. 

"We've never been here, we don't have this place on our map. Gonna have to add it." I told him.

"I told you I didn't want to come with you. First I turned into a werewolf inside the dark forest, and now this!" Moony said. 

"But it was such an adventure. We can make this an adventure too, if we wanna." Kyle said. 

"How?" I asked. 

"We're gonna miss six classes today. I should not have accepted to go with you." Remus said. Somehow I found myself laughing. 

"Sorry mate, it's my mistake." James said. 

"Now are we gonna sit here and cry? Let's do something, we're spending the entire day in here!" I said. "We've still got our wands with us, let's use them." 


Alex's P.O.V


It was the for of us now; Clara, Lara, Max and I. Lara finally decided that she didn't really want to wake up right before the classes started, so she won't be late for them. 

"Besides, I thought I'd read for a while." She said. And so we decided to go to the library. We were walking and somehow started talking about our houses and our rooms.  

"Actually our common room's eagle is quite useful. I hate it when little kids get in my room." I said. 

"Why don't you just lock it?" Max asked. 

"Because, locking it wouldn't be nice. Besides, it'd be obvious to their parents that I don't want to get their children in." I said. The girls just laughed. "Anyway, I'd wish to get one like it."

"Our room is a bit similar to our dormitory. It's blue, but it's way bigger. Clara and I have always known we were gonna be sorted into Ravenclaw." Lara said. It's a bad thing Lara doesn't usually walk with us a lot, she's so fun to talk to. Because when she's in the mood, she talks a lot. 

"Do you wanna go back home?" Clara asked me, a bit sad. 

"I don't know, I do miss home, but I like it a lot here. Hogwarts makes a person feel so welcomed. It's as if we belong here. As if this is home." I said and paused for a bit. "I can't believe only one week's left for us here, then we'll have to leave." 

"But we'll always keep in touch, right?" Clara asked. 

"She'd better keep in touch with us or I'll send her something hexed with my owl!" Said Max joking, we all laughed. 

"Come on, we're here." Lara said still smiling. 


Sirius's P.O.V 


Our four wands were lit now. We were having a magic duel, but not with real spells, with the spells that were almost completely harmless; like the one that causes the target to dance uncontrollably, or the one that cause the target to laugh so hard. It was so fun and funny. Remus was still tired and was still sitting on the floor, but he was also laughing very hard, especially when I used Aguamenti on Kyle ad he got all wet. I remembered then that he was a muggle and couldn't use magic on me, so I just gave up using magic on him. Now it was the three of us, James, Wormtail and I. James and I were doing almost every spell, and Wormtail was - actually he was really useless, just kept clapping and stuff, and so, I decided to use most of my spells on him. I was just going to get his teeth really huge when I heard a strange voice of Kyle. 

"Whooooa!" He said falling on the ground. "I - I was standing there and then the wall - This is a secret door!" I put my wand his way, and indeed it was a door. 

"Come on, then! Let's start the adventure!" James said. I gave Moony my hand and he started walking with us, now he was way better than before. Despite the scratches that were on his face, but wait, we all had scratches, maybe he just had the most.  

"Perfect, it's a passageway. I wonder where it leads." I said. 

"Anywhere but here, hopefully." Kyle said. 

"How come we don't know about this place?!" James said. 

"I think it's a good thing we had detention, right Moony?" I said turning to him, he just hit my arm and we continued moving. We closed the door behind us, we didn't care where this passageway led us to, we just didn't want Filch to know it was there. We walked and walked, it was a bit long, really. But then there was a dead end, before losing hope I pushed it and it opened. I grinned looking at the guys, and then there was suddenly light everywhere and we found ourselves in the first floor. No one was around. We all got out and breathed heavily. 

"How long have we been there?!" Moony asked. It felt so long, even that we kinda enjoyed our time there, it was such a bad place. 

"Hours." Kyle said. 

"Listen, guys. We shall make sure Filch doesn't notice us, and we shall also come back inside when it's time for us to finally get out. You know, just so he doesn't know anything about it." I said. They all agreed. 

"I'm so hungry I can't wait till it's lunchtime." James said. Actually I was really hungry too. 

"You do realize we have a class now, don't you?" Remus said.

"You do realize we're gonna have to miss it don't you?" James said. Remus just frowned. 

I wanted to see Alex. I really wanted to, but she probably had a class now or something. We could't meet them until it was lunch time. And lunch time was only after thirty minutes. We can wait, we can.
