Eventually, Lilly had to break open the door with some help from two other Ravenclaws, Dean and Jared, they were brothers in the same year as Lilly. She frantically burst in to find Annah bent over the sink, as pale as the porcelain tiles and gagging. Lilly cautiously approached her and put her hand on her shoulder. Annah sunn to her knees at Lilly's touch and hid her face in her hands, she began to sob loudly.
"Annah? Are you okay?" Lilly asked urgently.
Annah just sobbed harder into her arm.
"Annah." Lilly tapped on her shoulder gently.
"Go away" Annah said, her voice was thick from sobbing.
"W-what? You're ill Annah. You don't know what you're saying."
"Oh I think I do. You acting like you don't know anything about it." Annah snarled at Lilly through her hands.
"About what? Come on Annah you're making no sense by talking in riddles." Lilly patience was fast decreasing.
"Oh never mind." Annah said acidly, burst into fresh sobs and curled herself up in a ball. Lilly sighed and lowered her head, a single tear escaping her eye.
"Lilly?" Jared sad quietly. Lilly jumped, she had forgotten Dean and Jared were there.
"I'm fine." She wiped the tear from her cheek. "Really." She saw the look of disbelief on Dean's face.
"Okay. Well we better lay her down somewhere." Jared said, nodding at Annah.
"Wh-what? Oh. Annah. Yeah, of course. Um. Our room's just across from here." They carried Annah between the three of them and put her down gently on her bed, she groaned as her head touched her pillow and clenched her stomach.
"You're not gonna be sick again are you?" Lilly asked. "I'm not good with all this throw up." She said with a deadly serious face, she wasn't joking about.
"No.. Um. It only happens when.... I eat." Annah said, the last two words a mere whisper.
"Oh. Okay. If you're sure." Lilly replied, breathing a sigh if relief.
"Well. We better go. We are in the... Girls dorm after all." Jared said shyly, his cheeks blushing a rosy pink.
"Come on you moose, and stop damn blushing!" Dean said as he nudged Jared in the ribs playfully.
"Okay. Well we'll see you around Lilly." Jared said, not looking her in the eyes. He gave Lilly a small wave and smile when Dean wasn't looking.
"Bye." Dean winked at Lilly and led the way out of the dorm.
As they went Lilly could hear Jared saying "just because I'm tall doesn't mean I'm a moose." And she had to give a small chuckle.
Lilly sighed sadly when they were back in the common room and laid her head on her own pillow as Annah's breathing slowed. She had fallen asleep.
She felt so alone and so isolated. Isolated by herself, by Zach and now Annah.
