8. The Duel
After greeting the girls Lily was eager to tell them what had happened. They told her to wait until night when they could be in their dormitory. They spent the rest of the day just going on and off of the grounds and studying. Word was that Umbridge was going to give them a quiz and her quizzes took forever and ever and usually were so hard even Hermione had failed once. When it was time for them to go back to the common room Skylar. Ariella, Hermione, and Lily walked back as slowly as possible to intake the beauties of Hogwarts. while going back they bumped into Draco Malfoy. They knew that they should just move on but instead all four of them stood their frozen. He had his wand out and ready for who knows what! Lily was scared and so were the others.
Lily didn't understand what he was doing but apparently they were about to get ready to fight with him. He stunned Ariella and she collapsed. they could do nothing about it but out some protective charms around her. They couldn't tell when it happened but Crabbe and Goyle had just appeared and were battling Skylar, Hermione, and Lily. Skylar was dueling with Crabbe and Hermione with Goyle, and that left Lily with Malfoy. Now that Hermione and Skylar had defeated Crabbe and Goyle they wanted to help Lily, but for some reason she refused. She told them to help Ariella while Lily dueled with Draco.
"You know, Lily, The Dark Lord wants me to bring you to him. Yes he has risen and he is very powerful."
'Now, why would Voldemort want me? Let's think shall we?"
" Why should i tell you, you filthy BLOOD TRAITOR!"
" Call me that again and you won't have your tongue to speak anymore!"
"Ennervate!" Lily new many counter spells, jinxes, hexes, charms and so much more. Malfoy was an amatuer to her.
Lily quickly dodged the curse and started to fire spells everywhere towards Malfoy.
"Flipendo!" Malfoy went soaring on his back and Lily used Expelliarmus on him and she caught his wand she left him their on the ground and gave the wand to Peeves. Lily was proud and Together Hermione and Skylar helped carry Ariella to the hospital wing but Lily had a simpler way.
"Wingardium Leviosa!" She yelled and they floated Ariella to the hospital wing.
