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.


6. The Strange Room

Chapter Six

The Strange Room

Gossip was going around as I walked down the hallway with Ron and Harry. I looked behind me to see that Sir Nicholas was talking to a female ghost.

"Have you heard? Harry Potter's the new Gryffindor seeker as well as Jessamine. I always knew they both could do it!" 

I rolled my eyes at that comment.

'You gotta love Sir Nicholas.' I said smiling.

I was interrupted by my thoughts when Ron questioned the thought of 'Seeker'.

"Seeker? But first years never make the house teams. You guys must be the youngest Quidditch players in..." Ron trailed off thinking of the number of years it's been since then.

"A century, according to McGonagall." Harry said finishing Ron's sentence.

We kept talking when Fred and George appeared in front of us.

"Well done Harry, Jessa. Wood's just told us!" Fred said excitedly to us.

"Fred and George are on the team too. Beaters." Ron explained to Harry ( I already knew they were beaters).

I smiled at Fred and George who smiled mischievously back.

"Our job is to make sure that you don't get bloody up too bad. Can't make any promises of course. Rough game Quidditch." George said to the both of us. Harry looking scared and me looking determined.

"Brutal! But, nobody's died in years. Someone vanishes occasionally though." Fred said making it worse for Harry's fear.

Ron frowned at that comment before saying something.

"Oh go on Harry! Quidditch is great. Best game there is, and you'll be great too!" Ron said to Harry, comforting him a bit.

I smiled and touched his shoulder gently.

"Yeah Harry, you'll be fine. I believe you would make that best Quidditch player in the world!" I said to him. He still looked nervous but smiled just a bit before turning to Ron.

"But I've never even played Quidditch! What if I make a fool of myself?" Harry questioned us. Before we could answer Hermione answered it for him.

"You won't make a fool of yourself. It's in your blood." Hermione stated to Harry proudly.

"Come on! I'll show you!" Hermione said before dragging all of us down a hallway. We stopped in front of a trophy case.

There was a badge that said:



"Woah! Harry, you never told me your father was a seeker too!" Ron said excitedly to Harry.

Harry smiled proudly at the medal before him before answering Ron's statement.

"I didn't know."

----The Changing Stairs----

Harry and Ron were talking to each other privately. I was talking to Hermione, who turns out to be a very intelligent, funny person.

"So, Jessamine-" Hermione started, but before she could finish the sentence the stairs were changing.

"What's happening?" Harry questioned as we grabbed on to the railings tightly.

"The staircases change remember?" Hermione reminded Harry.

The stairs stop leading to a room.

"Let's go this way."

"Before the staircase moves again..." Ron muttered out loud. I followed both of them inside the arch shaped door way. I looked around to see creepy statues with cob webs all over them.

'Wow, can this place get anymore creepier?' I questioned amused at the fact that we weren't scared of this place.

"Does anybody feel like we shouldn't be here?" Ron questioned unsure of himself.

Then it hit me. We weren't supposed to be here!

"We're not supposed to be here. This is the third floor. It's forbidden!" Hermione explained to Harry and Ron. I nodded my quickly agreeing with her.

"Let's go." Harry told us. Before we could go I heard a 'meow.'

'Uh oh.'

"Run!" Harry said quickly.

"Flich's cat!" Ron said panicking. We ran quickly trying to find someplace to hide, finally we saw a door.

"Quick, let's hide through that door!" Harry said pointing to it.

Harry reached it and tried to open it.

"It's locked!" he said in annoyance.

"That's it, we're done for!" Ron said exaggerating.

"Please move!" I said to them quickly.

"Alohomora!" I said, the door unlocking immediately.

"Get in!" I ordered them.

"Alohomora?" Ron questioned my spell.

"Standard Book Of Spells- Chapter 7" Hermione replied for me.

After Filch was gone I breathed a sigh of relief before looking over the room. What I saw made me gasp.

'Fluffy?! What was Fluffy doing in here?' I asked in my head. 


"He thinks the door was unlocked." Ron stated to us.

"It was locked." Hermione said with annoyance in her voice.

"And for a good reason." Harry stated to them.

Ron and Hermione turned around to see the 3-headed dog (that was named Fluffy) was staring at them growling.

"AHHHHHHH" Hermione, Harry and Ron screamed together.

They bolted out of the room leaving me behind. Fluffy looked down at me growling before sniffing then it had a face full of love.

"Hey Fluffy! Remember me?" I asked the three-headed dog. Fluffy licked me answering my question for me.

"Haha! Stop you're tickling me!" I said to Fluffy.

"Jessamine?! Jessamine?!? Where are you?!" I heard Harry screaming my name.

I sighed and looked at the door, then back up at Fluffy.

"Well, I have to go Fluffy. I promise I will see you though!" I said promising the dog.

He licked my face and went to lay back down over the trap door.

I exited the door facing my shell shocked friends.

"You were in there the whole time?!? Why aren't you died?!" Ron questioned me.

"I know that dog." I honestly said to him. Ron's eyes widened as well did Harry and Hermione.

"You know that beast?!" Ron said to me like I was crazy. I nodded my head.

"Yes, yes I do know that 'beast.' I replied.

I walked past them going back to the place we were supposed to go.  


A/n: For those who say that if I were to get 7 comments then I would post 2 chapters. I am sorry to say but sadly, I don't have enough time for that. I am too busy with schoolwork and with my personally life. I am actually glad that so far I've posted 1 chapter each day. I really enjoy writing this! I really hope you guys aren't disappointed in me...

Anyways... Sorry if you are.
