43. Chapter 39

    Within time the first Potions class had started. Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Draco sat together at a new table. Instead of being dead cold they all were in a comfortable cool room. When everyone settled down a sudden burst of a golden potions exploded and revealed Professor King. Smiling as everyone clapped for him he took a small bow before waiting for silence.

“Hello guys I’m Professor King! I will be your new potions teacher! So to start off class we will be taking this day for fun so I can get to know you guys!” All the Slytherins looked disgusted at this but all the Gryffindors cheered.

“So we will all go around and say our first and last names plus our favorite potions. I will start off.”

“I’m Rupert King and my favorite potion is the Pepperup Potion!” Hermione was next and said clearly and excitedly.

“I’m Hermione Granger and I really like the potion called, Draught of Peace.”

“I’m Ron Weasley and my favorite potion is Veritism.”

“I’m Draco Malfoy and I like Draught of Living Death.”

“I’m Harry Potter and I like Felix Felicis.” and it went on for 5 more minutes before Professor King let everyone calm down.

“Ok everyone we will now go outside and we will enjoy ourselves. We will be going down to the Quidditch Pitch and if anyone wishes to fly you are able to. Just no playing with the balls, but I have an extra Quaffle here for people who wish to pass around. If you wish to just relax by the Black Lake you may I just need a person willing to go and supervise them.” Hermione’s hand shot in the air.

“Yes Hermione?”

“Sir if you don’t mind could I supervise the Black Lake??”

“Of course Hermione! Oh and to start off on good terms 50 points to everyone.” Everyone went off into murmuring counting up the points. That made Gryffindor and Slytherin tied for first place. Each now having 600 points.

“OK! Everyone out we go!” Everyone walked out and Professor King waved to a petrified Filch who saw the smiling faces of students.

“Now raise your hand if you are going to play on the pitch.” Harry, Draco, Ron, and about ⅔ of class raised their hands.

“Ok! I will take you guys down Hermione you’re in charge of the others.” Everyone got on their brooms and flew down and surprisingly Professor King flew down with them too. Harry turned around on his broom and saw Hermione leading the extra Gryffindor and 3 Slytherins to the Black Lake. Suddenly they saw a marching Umbridge come out as everyone started to do a ‘friendly’ game of quidditch. Professor King just merely smiled at her as she came up to him.

“Ahh! Professor Umbridge! What a delight to see you’re joining us!” He clearly didn’t see her face turning a dangerous shade of purple.


“Ahh yes but Professor why aren’t you TEACHING it is your job.”

“Well you see these kids need to some fresh air so this lesson we are just gonna have a little fun before we start working hard!” Rolling her toad eyes Umbridge marched into the castle. Probably plotting how to fire him.

“Ok! Let’s do a muggle game called ‘Tag’ so it’s easy. One person will have the quaffle and that person is ‘It’ their objective is to tag someone with the quaffle without hurting anyone. They are not allowed to hold someone, throw the quaffle, or use any magic. Everyone else is suppose to try and not get ‘Tagged’ you get it?” Everyone nodded and then Professor King randomly choose Draco to be ‘It’. After 2 minutes Draco managed to ‘Tag’ Ron and then it went on for the hour where Harry managed to not be ‘Tagged’.


“Ok guys class is over! Homework! Write a paragraph about your favorite potion and why! Next class we will be growing / finding our materials for the potions! That’s it I’ll see you at dinner!” Everyone poured into the great hall with the happiest they had been in a while. Hermione returned with the rest and had the best expression on her face.

“BEST CLASS EVER!” everyone yelled, including Hermione.  Definitely the best class ever. Now for quidditch practice.




    Harry and Draco were trudging down the trail from Hogwarts to the quidditch pitch when they heard a piercing scream split the air. Harry pulled out his wand and looked around while Draco simply pulled out his wand and went into a fighting stance.


“Who was that!?” Harry asked in a scary calm voice.

“No clue came from the pitch though look no one is flying anymore.” Draco was right in the last minute they could make out the silhouettes of flying members but now no one was seen in the air. Another splitting scream came in the air and grabbing their brooms, Harry and Draco raced alongside each other down to the pitch to find a chaotic scene. Around one area everyone was crowded around a girl with blonde hair and blue tips. It was one of the members of D.A.

“What happened to her!?” Draco demanded recovering from his shock first.

“She was flying around and then all we saw was a green light and her fall down here.” Said Alicia Spinnet.

“Was it a curse??” Harry asked them.

“I think so.” It was a girl who looked exactly like her but with purple tips. She bent down and picked up the girl’s feather charm.

“She was wearing this when she fell. Chloe never had a feather charm on her bracelet.” Cam, Scar, and Evelyn all turned around and started walking up to the Hospital Wing for Madam Pomfrey. Suddenly another scream came except it was much louder and nearer. Running around with quick reflexes Harry and Draco ran up to a sight that was never seen. Scar was slowly turning into stone, it started with her finger tips and was moving along her arm.

“Help! Someone go get Madam Pomfrey quick!” Cam said before she started to turn into a stone too. A scream caught her throat too before she was gone into a statue.




    Harry woke in a  dead sweat. It was just a dream right??
