James Potter and the Marauders

This is a story about James Potter (Harry's father). I'm sorry if I made any mistakes. English isn't my native language.


20. In the library

Peter's p.o.v.:

Since it were almost exams, we went to the library to study. Weekends are always fun, except if you have exams in a fiew days. We studied quiet alot already, but the exams start on monday, so we have quiet alot of work. The first exam is Astronomy. This exam is in the night of sunday and monday at midnight in the Astronomy Tower. It's quiet boring: we have to study the night skies through the telescopes and learn the different names of the stars and the movements of the planets. We also have to be able to use a map of Jupiter which is not so easy to use. Remus is actually lucky he can't follow this class. It took us a fiew hours to study everything. When we were finished, James climbed on a ladder. He wanted to take a book when the librarian called him: "Don't take that book, Potter. Take another book if you want to read." That were 2 strange things: James never reads a book if he doesn't have to. And second, if James may not read that book, why isn't it in the restricted section?

James' p.o.v.:

Normally, I never read a book, but this one aroused my interest. I don't know why, but it felt like I have to read this book. Even though it's just a history of Hogwarts. My friends were looking strange at me because I want to read a book, so I just laughed. We went to the Great Hall to eat our lunch. As always, it was very delicious. I was very hungry, probably because of all the studying. "James, since when do you want to read a book? asked Remus, I smiled. "This book aroused my interest for some reason. Don't ask why. It's just another history of Hogwarts, but since I may not read the book, I certainly want to read it." I explained them. "With other words, you are going to break the rules again." Replied Peter and we laughed. We continued the conversation while whispering, so nobody could hear us. "Yes, but I need your help. We will realize the plan at night with help of my invisibility Cloak. Sirius and I will be the performers, and Peter and Remus will be the distractors. Are you with me or not?" They all nodded, like I expected. I explained them the plan, they knew what to do. If everything goes as planned, we won't be snatched.

Sirius' p.o.v.:

The rest of the day, we studied in the library. James had his invisibility Cloak with him. At 10.00 p.m., the librarian asked everyone to leave so she could close the library. James and I hid under the invisibility Cloak and Remus and Peter left. I had a lump in my throat from fear for being snatched. But I will never cede that to James. The librarian checked the library one more time, put out the lights and left. James and I were still hiding under the Cloak, she might come back. "So, where's that book?" I whispered. He was looking for it. "Please don't tell me you can't find it." I warned him. "I can't help it that the library is so big!" replied James. That was true, the library is huge. Maybe it was by accident, but suddenly, the moon shone on a book. The book that James was looking for. James climbed on the ladder and hid again under the Cloak, with the book. We left the library and went to the common room without getting snatched.
