The next morning, Harry, Ron, Hermione and Scarlett walked down to the Great Hall.
"Mail's here." said Neville Longbottom, their friend. He was right. Owls started swooping over the tables. Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Scarlet sat down.
"Oh my!" Scarlett exclaimed. In front of her was a beautiful snow owl with deep brown eyes. There was a note. It read: "Scarlett, this is a late birthday present. Happy Birthday! Harry."
"My God Harry I love it!" She thanked her brother.
"Harry, look." Ron sounded terrified.
"Ron, that's a Howler!" Hermione exclaimed.
"Open it. I ignored one from my Gran once. It was worse." Neville said. Ron opened the envelope with shaking hands.
"RONALD BILUIS WEASLEY! HOW DARE YOU STEAL THAT CAR! I AM EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED AND DISGUSTED! YOUR FATHER IS POSSIBLY FACING UNEMPLOYMENT AT WORK AND ITS YOUR FAULT! YOUR FAULT THAT YOUR WAND GOT SNAPPED! IF YOU BRING ANOTHER TOE OUT OF LINE, WE'LL BRING STRAIT HOME!" Screeched Mrs. Weasley's voice. Then, she said calmly, "Ginny dear, congratulations on making Gryffindor your father and I are so proud!" Then the Howler erupted in flames.
"Talk about unlucky." Scarlett said.
"Hey!" Ron replied.
"Wha-- oh no not the Howler! Our first class, we have Herbology with Slytherian!" Scarlett exclaimed glaring at their schedule.
"We should probably leave right now!" Hermione said.
They walked to the green houses and found Professor Sprout waiting to them.
"Ah, the Potter Twins. I hope I won't be seeing any trouble in my class?" She said looking at them sternly.
"Nope." Harry replied before Scarlett could. They walked into the green house to see Malfoy sneering.
"Well, well, if it isn't Potter. Oh and the other--"
"Mr. Malfoy please take your station!" Professor Sprout yelled. "That's the second time!"
Malfoy hurried to his station. "Now, we will be learning about Mandrakes this year. Who can tell me about Mandrakes?" Hermione raised her hand. "Ah Miss Granger. " Professor Sprout said.
"Mandrake or Mandragoria is used to turn people who have been petrified the their original state. It's also quit dangerous, their cry is almost fatal to anyone who hears it." Hermione said.
"Excellent, 10 points to Gryffindor." Professor Sprout replied. Behind her, the group could see Malfoy doing a terrible impression of Hermione jumping with her hand raised. Scarlett glared at him; what a foul thing to do by someone who probably had no idea what the answer was.
"How about those pranks?" Harry whispered in Scarlett's ear. "Later, you don't want to get on Professor Sprout's bad side, Malfoy's already showed us what happens." She whispered back.
"I have a set of ear muffs for you, the Mandrakes cry won't kill you but they could knock you out for a couple hours or so." Professor Sprout continued. "So, but on your ear muffs right now and I'll show you the Mandrakes." Everyone instantly put on their ear muffs. Professor Sprout pulled on her plant and a huge ugly baby like plant was the roots. It was screaming.
Neville fell over and Professor Sprout put her Mandrake back and piled dirt into its pot. "Longbottom has been neglecting his ear muffs." She said. "He's just fainted ma'am." Said Seamus Finnegan, another friend. "Just leave him there." Professor Sprout replied.
"It's your turn, just pull it sharp out, hold it for about ten seconds and put it back in the pot, and fill the pot with dirt. Ready go!" The green house was filled with horrible cries that nobody could actually hear. Malfoy was playing with his and it bit his finger. Scarlett, Harry, Ron, Hermione and the rest of the Gryffindors smiled.
Then after ten seconds they put their Mandrakes in their pots and filled the pots with dirt. It turns out that only Gryffindor cared because the Slytherians lost 15 point for sloppy work.
It was time for Quidditch Tryouts and Scarlett, Harry, Fred and George all tried out. While George was waiting he turned to Scarlett and said "Remember, it's just Fred, Ron, and I. Exactly like that, so don't be nervous. Okay?" "Got it." Scarlett replied smiling.
When it was her turn Oliver Wood simply asked her to try to score with him as keeper. Even if she was used to Fred as keeper she still didn't mis a shot. When it was Harry's turn, all he had to do is catch the snitch. He didn't miss it once either.
A couple days went by when at breakfast, Fred and George came running up to Scarlett saying "Scarlett, Scarlett! You made the team!" "Shush! You don't want broom Prince Malfoy to hear." Angelina Johnson said. "Even if she took my place I'm not going to be a sore looser and let him know about it!"
"Why?" George asked. "I saw him buying brooms for his whole team!" Scarlett whispered. "Oh." Fred replied. "Well, we have both Potters on the team. We should be unstoppable!" Katie Bell said. "How about Zoey? Did she make it?" Scarlett asked. "Oh yeah!" Katie replied. "That's awesome!" Scarlett exclaimed.
"Never, have I seen such talent come from a second year." said Wood, who just showed up. "Practice is this Saturday at 7:00am." They all walked off.
Saturday came and Scarlett was up at 6:45am. Harry had walked in and asked "Why are you up so early?" Scarlett shrugged. "Doesn't matter, Wood wants us to get down there at 6:55 anyway.
"Alright, let's go." Scarlett replied. When they got down their they saw Wood and everyone else. "Good we're all here. Let's head down to the--" Wood trailed off at the sight if the Slytherian team.
"Where are you going Flint?" Wood asked. "Quidditch practice." Flint replied. "I booked the pitch for Gryffindor today." Wood said. "Easy, I've got a note saying that we need to train our new seeker." Flint explained.
"New seeker?" Scarlett repeated. "Yeah Potter." said Malfoy who walked up. "That's not all that's different this year." Everyone showed off their Numbus 2001s. "Those are 2001s," Ron said, "where did you get those?"
"A gift from my father because unlike some, my father can afford the best!" Malfoy spat. "At least Gryffindor didn't have to buy their way in." Hermione replied, "they got in on pure talent." "No one asked you, you filthy mudblood." Malfoy sneered.
"HOW DARE YOU!" Zoey shouted. "HOW RUDE!" Katie screamed. "TAKE IT BACK!!" Scarlett yelled which caught everyone off guard, George was holding her back from attacking Malfoy. "No, I'll say it agian." Malfoy replied. "GRANGER IS A MUDBLOOD!" he screamed. "EAT SLUGS!" Ron screeched. Instead of it hitting Malfoy, Ron flew backwards and started vomiting slugs.
Harry, Scarlett, and Hermione ran to Ron. Hermione and Harry lifted Ron and Scarlett suggested "Let's take him to Hagrids, he'll know what to do." Then they ran to Hagrid's, leaving the Slytherians laughing.
