Catch me when I fall

My name is Jessamine Snow, but people call me Jessa, I am eleven years old and I live in Hogwarts with my foster mother, Minerva McGonagall. You see, when I was little my parents were killed by Lord Voldemort. Everyone is scared of that name, but me? Never.


7. Quidditch Practice and Trolls

Chapter Seven

Quidditch Practice and a Troll

After I said that comment I went back to my dorms. I instantly fell asleep right when my head hit the pillow.

*Next Day*

Wood,Harry and I were on the Quidditch field. Wood was teaching Harry about Quidditch so he could understand it more better

"Quidditch is easy enough to understand. Each team has 7 players. Three Chasers, two Beaters, one Keeper and a Seeker, that's you. There are three kinds of balls. This one's called the Quaffle. The Chasers handle the Quaffle and try to put it through one of those three hoops. The Keeper, that's me, defends the hoops." explained Wood. Then he looked back at Harry

"With me so far?" He asked. Harry nodded and looked at the hoops, then Wood, and finally the box.

"I think so. What are those?" Harry asked Wood. Wood looked down to see he was looking at the Bludgers.

"Bludgers. Nasty little buggers. But you guys are the Seeker. The only thing I want you guys to worry about is this, The Golden Snitch." Wood told us showing us the golden ball.

"I like this ball." Harry said smiling.

"Eh, you like it now. But it's wicked fast and dang near impossible to see." Wood replied to Harry's comment.

Harry's faced turned into confusion.

"What do we do with it." He asked Wood.

"You catch it Harry. If we catch this Golden Snitch then we win the game." I replied softly smiling at him. He looked at me slightly turned away red coming up to his cheeks. I titled my head in confusion.

'Hm, did I say something wrong?' I kept asking myself as he avoided eye contact the rest of practice.

*Moving on to Flitwick's Class!*

"One of a wizard's most rudimental skill is levitation or the ability to make objects fly. Do you all have your feathers?" Flitwick asked everyone.

Hermione and I picked up our feathers and smiled at him.

"Good! Now, don't forget the nice wrist movement we've been practicing. Hum! 'The Swish and Flick'. Everyone, the 'Swish and Flick'." Flitwick reminded all of us. 

"Oh! and annunciate! Wingardium Leviosa." Flitwick said to all of us.

"Off you go then!" He said waving his hand for us to practice.

Instantly there were voices saying 'Wingardium Leviosa' all around the room. I didn't really do anything I already had that spell mastered. I turned around to see Ron swinging his wand around frantically. I was about to say something to him, but, Hermione beat me to it.

"No, stop stop stop! You're going to take someone's eye out! Besides, you're saying it wrong. It's 'Levi-o-sa', not 'Leviosar'. Hermione said to Ron, correcting him on his mistake.

Ron frowned at Hermione, annoyance was plastered on his face.

"You do it then if you're so clever. Go on, go on!" Ron said to Hermione who just glared. I heard a 'hmph!' before she picked up her wand and pointed it towards the feather.

"Wingardium Leviosa." She said repeating the spell correctly. Instantly the feather started to float in the air, ever so softly. I smiled and took a note to congratulate Hermione after class.

"Oh! Well done! See here everyone, Miss Granger's done it! Ho ho~! Splendid!" the Professor announced to the class.

I smiled and clapped silently.

"Well done dear. OH!" Professor was soon interrupted to a loud booming sound at the back of the class. I looked behind me to see Seamus with black soot all over his face and clothes. Harry was beside him, his eyes widen in surprise before he looked up at the Professor.

"I think we're going to need another feather over here professor..." He said to the professor who looked stunned at the fact that someone blew up a feather with a simple spell.

I smiled and shook my head in amusement.


"Ah! No homework tonight!" Professor Flitwick yelled to the students who were exiting the classroom.

I caught up with Hermione who was behind Ron, Harry, Seamus, and Dean. I smiled at her and congratulated her on the spell. She beamed a smile at me and said a 'thank you'. We continued walking when we heard Ron talking about Hermione.

"It's 'Levi-o-sa' not 'Leviosar'. She's a nightmare honestly! It's not wonder she hasn't got any friends!" Ron complained to them. I glared at his back and looked at Hermione who had tears in her eyes. She speed-walked towards them bumping into Ron. I followed after her, giving Ron and nasty glare along the way. Hearing a 'I think she heard you'.

I had to jog to catch up with Hermione. I followed her into the girl's bathroom where she headed towards the stall. Locking herself in there. I sighed and stood there.

"Hermione... Don't listen to what Ron said about you. You know it's not true!" I said to Hermione who was crying softly.

"But it's true!! I have no friends! He was... right. For the first time he was, right." Hermione replied back, anger laced in her tone. 

"If you have no friends, then what am I?" I replied softly to her, hurt that she didn't consider me her friend. I heard her gasp lightly as she opened up the stall door quickly. She lunged at me, wrapping her arms around me. I smiled and softly patted her back soothingly.

"Your, my friend..." She answered back tightening her hold on me. I chuckled, and nodded my head.

"Of course I'm your friend. I actually consider you my only 'girl' friend." I said to her. She nodded her head indicating she was listening.

"Y-you know? You're a good friend. I'm glad to have you as my friend Jessamine." She softly replied in my shoulder, were her head was at.

"I am also glad to have you as my friends Hermione." I replied.

We stood there for an hour her hugging me time to time and letting out her feelings. I was glad that she was telling me what she was feeling. I really didn't want her to keep all her feelings in and suffer the consequence of doing that. She smiled at me and started to rub her swollen eyes.

"Are you feeling better Hermione?" I asked her silently. She nodded her head and started walking towards the sink when she froze. I froze as well. There standing before us was a Troll. Hermione screamed and hid in the stall. I hid in the next stall as well. We heard a 'Whoosh!' before wood came tumbling on us. Hermione and I crawled over to the sinks, hiding beneath them. That was when our best friends came stumbling in the bathroom.

"Help!!" Hermione screamed at them.  Ron and Harry started to grab chunks of wood and rock and started to throw it at the creature trying to make it's attention come to them.

"Hey! Pea brain!" Ron shouted at the troll throwing a piece of wood at it's head. The troll turned to look at them, catching his attention. Ron's eyes widened, Harry however took out his wand and charged at the troll grabbing on to his club. He landed on the troll's shoulder with a loud 'ouf'. The troll started to freak out, shaking around furiously. Harry started to shake along with the troll's movements, all of a sudden, his wand got stuck up the troll's nose!

"Ugh." I heard Ron say, his voice laced with disgust. I scrunched up my nose in disgust as well.

It took a bad turn when the troll got a hold of Harry's foot, bringing him down off the troll's shoulders.

The troll swung it's club, thankfully Harry pulled up right before he was going to get hit in the head. Harry looked towards Ron who had his wand out.

"Do something!" Harry exclaimed to Ron.

"What?!" Ron yelled back at him.

'WHOOSH!' came the club as it missed Harry's head again.

"Anything!" Harry screamed back.


"Hurry up!" Harry added.

"Ron! Use the levitation spell!" I screamed at him.

He looked at me and nodded his head bringing his wand up.

"Just swish and flick." Hermione reminded him.

"Wingardium Leviosa!" He said, repeated the spell perfectly. Right as the troll started to bring his club back up it stopped in thin air.

The troll looked up slowly and saw his club in the air. The club fell and landed on his head.

"Cool..." Ron said out loud.

The troll dropped Harry and started to tumble down. Luckily Harry got of the way in time before the troll landed with a 'thump'.

Hermione got up from underneath the sink and walked towards Harry and Ron. I followed along with her.

"Is it, dead?" Hermione asked, hesitating on the word 'dead'.

"I don't think so, just knocked out." Harry replied stepping close to it.

He pulled his wand out of the troll's nose, green snob coated half of the wand.

"Ergh!" Harry exclaimed with disgust at his wand being covered with boogers.

"Troll boogies..." Ron said, his face scrunched up.

Right as I was about to reply my mum, Professor Quirrell, and Professor Snape.

My mum gasped at the sight of us.

"Oh my goodness. Explain yourselves, both of you!" My mum demanded Harry and Ron.

"Well, you see-" Before Harry and Ron continue I interrupted them.

"It's my fault mum." I stated to her.

"It's also my fault as well Professor..." Hermione also stated.

My mum looked at me with shock, as well as Ron and Harry.

"Jessamine, Miss Granger?" my mum asked through shock.

"We went looking for the troll. We've read about them and I thought we could handle it. But we were wrong. If Harry and Ron hadn't come and found Hermione and I... We would probably be dead." I told her. She looked at me with knowing eyes.

"Be that as it may, it was an extremely foolish thing to do. I would have expected more rational behavior on your part and am very disappointed in you, Miss. Granger and Jessamine especially. Five points will be taken from Gryffindor for your serious lack of judgement. As for you two gentlemen I just hope you realize how fortunate you are. Not many first year students could take on a fully grown mountain troll and live to tell the tale. Five points will be awarded to each of you, for sheer dumb luck" My mother stated to us. We looked down in guilt when she took 5 points from us. Then we she added 5 points to the each of for 'sheer dumb luck', we looked up at her curiously.

We smiled and looked at each other.

"P-perhaps you ought to go." Professor Quirrell said to us.

We nodded our heads and left to go back to our dormitories, smiles planted on our faces.

A/n: OMG! I haven't updated in awhile! I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sorry! I really am! I had troubles going on at home and I would like to apologize for that. *bows her head repeatedly*
