10. The Howler
The next day, I got a howler! A HOWLER!! This was insane. It said,
GOING AFTER A TROLL!!!!! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!! YOU COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!! WE WOULD EXPECT THIS FROM ALEX, BUT YOU!
Love, Mum and Dad.
I sat there, very embarrassed. Edmund, Callum and Dustin grabbed me and pulled me out of the Great Hall. All I did that day was sulk. I had detention with Snape and I got a Howler. Because of detention, I would not be able to see the first Quidditch match. I wasn't playing, but I wanted to watch Alex hit bludgers and Edmund score. Now I will miss my first chance. So much for today.
