7. Herbology, Embarrassments, Arrogant Swines
I woke up in the morning, and grabbed my grey jumper, my grey skirt, and robes...I shoved them on, and unsuccessfully tried to straighten down my curls. Ugh!! Why can't my hair be straight!?Then I could wake up, comb it, and it would go flat as a rug!! Instead, I tight it with a black ribbon and clipped my fringe to the side so I could study without distraction. I shoved on my black, strap on shoes, and skipped out cheerfully to the great hall for breakfast. 3rd Person POV James Potter strode into the great hall, arrogant as usual. Back straight, chin up, and shoving everyone in his way, with Black by his side, a very shabby looking Remus on his other side, and poor little Peter at their heels. Suddenly Severus walked by. "Ahh, things have gotten better Jamesoes," Black elbowed Potter, and pointed at a greasy haired, pointy nosed, Snape. "Well well well..Fancy seeing you here SEV! Isn't that what Evans calls you? Well, she'll see what right jerks you slytherins are!!" James sneered " what right jerks WE are!?" He snarled, emphasizing on the word we. "how dare you." Sirius hissed "Petrificus Totalus" Potter shouted, and suddenly, Severus Snape was upside down! "Learned that from Dad, " James said "your dad would never send you a defensive spell. "ahh, well, when you say there are some certain people bothering you, that you need to take care of, it does the trick." He laughed arrogantly "finite" Lupin muttered. " Buzz-killer!! What was that for?!" Sirius and James asked annoyed "you don't want to get in trouble this quickly, do you?" Remus said "I didn't need YOUR help!! You don't even deserve your filthy robes, hanging out with these pe0ple!" At these words, Sirius and James had their wands pointed at Snape's heart. "Just let it go," Remus said, though he looked offended. "Petrificus to-" "LEAVE HIM!! LEAVE HIM ALONE!! IS THE ONLY THING YOU ENJOY DOING AROUND HERE IS BULLY?? LEAVE ALL US INNOCENT PEOPLE ALONE!" Lily's voice rang through the great hall. She heard laughter. They were all pointing at her!! She looked down, to find that she had been in such a rush, she had forgotten to take of her pajamas from under her clothes. Lily burst into tears and ran off. It wasn't because she was embarrassed, it was because, behind a layer of tears, she could see Her one and only Sev..Her hero, who helped her through the moments Petunia had screamed the horrible insults at her....Laughing with the rest of the Slytherins!! Alice, Molly, Fabion, Gideon, Arthur, and Marlene, made their way to her, and stopped her. "Girl, you don't take no crap from no one!!"'Alice said "The stars, and moons beyond, Donnot wish for a heart as good as yours, to bleed with pain towards one who is a pain is the ass," Marlene said poetically Lily laughed through her tears. She had new friends. Ones that would stand by her. She didn't need Snivellus!! She wouldn't stand up for him. A best friend doesn't laugh with the bullies, he stands up to the bullies, like she had done with him..A best friend doesn't call the other foul names, when she had done nothing at all!! Oh, no, she had new friends, and much better ones too! She had Herbology, so she rearranged herself, making sure there was nothing wrong, and headed towards Herbology with Ravenclaw. "Welcome, Students, to first year Herbology!! I am Professor Sinius. Today We will be learning about gillyweed, now will anyone tell me what gillyweed is?" Professor Sinius asked. Lily automatically raised her hand..she remembered reading about gillyweed. "yes, miss Evans" she asked "Gillyweed is a plant, with a foul taste, If one eats Gillyweed, they shall grow gills, and are able to breath underneath water." She said, phrasing it exactly as she had read in One thousand Magical herbs and Fungi, by Phillida Spore. "Excellent, Miss Evans, Ten points to Gryfindor!"the Gryfindors high-fives each other, but Lily had a hunch that Potter had done something, and they would need too many points to gain back what they would lose! "Each of you will feed the flobberworm provided, some gillyweed and then push it to the floor of the bowl of water given to each of you!" She announced Lily grabbed her flobberworm and fed it 2 small pieces as it could have a nasty effect if fed too much. And shoved the worm underwater. The water began to bubble, and the slimy thing grew gills and penguin feet and it began swimming around freely. James on the other had fed the flobberworm 6 big pieces, and suddenly the worm began to grow, and grow and grow. "Evanesco" Professor muttered, and it disappeared. "5 points from gryffindor, for lack of responsibility!" Lily groaned, as well as everyone else.. They've already started, Lily huffed inwardly... This is gonna be a long day!
