22. I Never
Marlene shook her hair out of the way. "Okay, so you have to show the other girls he's YOURS."
"But he's NOT mine." Curly sounded confused.
Marlene shook her head pityingly. "You make it LOOK like he's yours. He will be sure to fall head over sneakers for you, my little Star-ling."
Curly's confusion was increasing, I noticed with satisfaction. "Head over sneakers? Starling? What in the name of Merlin?"
Marlene huffed. "Don't be such a party pooper! IT'S MEAN TO POOP ON PARTIES, MY DEAR! MWHAHAHAMWAHA-" I gave her a Chinese burn-"Ha," she finished feebly.
"GUYS, I'm bored, let's play a game," moaned Savannah/Blondie/Goldilocks.
"Like?" I snapped.
Blondie shrugged, "I dunno. Maybe um...Would You Rather? I Never?"
"I've never played I Never," I informed her. "I don't even know what I Never is, Savannah."
"It goes like this-so you say something you've never done. We each get 11 pieces of candy. The people who HAVE done what you never did throw their candy inside the circle. Clear?"
I inwardly groaned. Booooring. But I DEALT with it and said "Fine".
Molly started. "I never thought that TV was people stuffed into a box."
The only person who threw in candy was Alice.
"Take it seriously, Mols," reminded Mary.
"My turn!" Savannah shouted. "I never was a Gryffindor."
"Good one, Savannah," said Marlene in awe as everyone but Summer/Curly threw in candy. "Good one."
"My turn!" shouted Alice. "I never got over two Christmas presents each Christmas."
We all groaned as everyone threw in candy.
"I only have nine pieces," I complained. "And here's mine-I never fancied a marauder."
The air was filled with "Lily!" and "Give us a break, Evans!" I smirked. Everyone but Blondie had thrown in candy.
Savannah sat there proudly. "I fancy Jason Wood from Gryffindor," she grinned sheepishly.
"What if I USED to like Remus?" asked Molly.
"What if I USED to like-" Alice started but I interrupted
"If you EVER liked a marauder, keep your candy in the circle," I clarified. "Your turn," I added to Mary.
Mary's eyes lit up. "I never didn't pay attention in History of Magic!"
All the candy but mine and Summer's went in. "Really?" I asked Mary skeptically. "You pay attention in History of Magic?"
Mary looked offended. "YES," she emphasized. I grinned at her. "Okay, Molly's had a turn, Savannah had one, Alice did, I did, Mary did-Summer, Marlene, you guys go."
Summer began, "Um...I never lied to anyone."
"WHAT??????????????" We all snarled.
"I'm not letting go of my candy!" I wailed.
"That's not fair!" shouted Alice.
She smirked at us. "Rules are rules."
Every single one of us dropped candy into the circle.
"Only eight pieces left," I huffed. "I'm MAD. Humph."
Marlene laughed. "I never cried for a silly reason." We all threw in our candy, but not before giving Marlene a dirty look.
"Damn," Mary groaned. "That freaking sti-"
"Hey, we have to get dressed into our robes," I said. I was already dressed in them. So as everyone got changed, I stared out the window. I saw Hogwarts and laughed happily. I couldn't wait to go in there.
