The next day was bright and sunny. At least it was until a prank was set off. It all started at breakfast.
All the students and teachers were having breakfast when McGonagall walked in, apparently very irritated. Thankfully, everyone saw this and no one bothered her.
As she walked farther and farther into the Hall, her nose started to twitch. After ten minutes, she rushed out of the Great Hall without eating anything.
McGonagall then went up to her classroom and was snippy all day while seeming to try to stop her body from acting without permission.
It was the end of the day, just after the last class that things got hysterical. The terrible twos (Lea's new name for the Weasley twins, after the hissy fit year of a baby's life, commonly year two) when McGonagall retired to her office where about a pound of catnip was hidden. She didn't have a chance
The students heard only the hiss of a cat before they heard crashes and the ripping of cloth.
One of the twins cautiously went to the door and opened it. Inside was a tawny cat attacking the office space.
"Bloody H-ll!!!!!" Fred yelled as he saw the damage.
"GET OUT OF HERE," a female Ravenclaw yelled as the cat ran out of the office and started shredding papers that were in the way of her claws.
They all ran to the Great Hall, a deranged McGonagall hot on their tails, well heels.
"SOMEONE HELP!!!!" The Ravenclaw yelled as the students came into the Hall. The cat then ran up to Dumbledore's chair and clawed at the wood and started biting it.
"What the-" many students began asking each other only to be cut off as McGonagall jumped on the table only to fall into some mashed potatoes and remain unconscious for the rest of the night.
"Poppy, if you wouldn't mind, could you take care of our esteemed Transfiguration teacher?" Dumbledore asked with a smile. As they disappeared, the smile and twinkle left slightly.
"I will ask once and only once. Who brought the catnip into the school? Who is responsible for this dangerous prank? Did it ever occur to you that if Professor McGonagall had gotten to close to a student that they would be seriously injured? Now do not worry, the worst that would happen would be a month of detentions, now does anyone know anything?" he asked eyeing the students.
Harry and Hermione stared wide eyes at the headmaster then turned to stare at Lea. Genevieve and Neville saw this, along with the Terrible Two staring at her and ogled. Thankfully, the headmaster didn't see this as, at that moment, Peeves came in cackling.
"Oh, little ickle Ronnie
How you do have fun
A prank the kitty
Just can't be out done!
Kitty nip in the rooms
Unconscious is the meany
She is facing her doom.
It's a bad day to be a kitty
When Ronnie is near
You all should FEAR!!!" He then went to congratulate Ronnie on his prank and cackled away as Dumbledore took him up to his office to Floo Mrs. Weasley.
"How in the H-LL did you get Peeves on your side?!?" the twin yelled as soon as all the teachers left, leaving the students alone.
"That's my secret to keep. So beware all who anger me!! I WILL SICK PEEVES UPON YOU!!!! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!"
Ever so slowly, starting with Neville and Genevieve, everyone clapped at the success of the young Slytherin. The twins even went as far as to go and bow before the better prankster, begging for secrets. They only got one, where she hid all the catnip.
"You are, without a doubt, the most Slytherin of anyone ever to come through this school," Draco said with only a little bit of awe in his voice.
"I thought you learned that my first year," Lea said innocently.
"I did, but now no one can deny the fact."
"Totally beat Tom Riddle," Lea whispered to Harry as he passed and he couldn't help but agree.
Ron got said detentions, plus about three howlers a day for a month from his family, including Percy, and more detentions from McGonagall. Life was good, until Moody stuck his nose into things.
