The Slytherin Department
Malfoy pulled me to a carriage full of Slytherins, an older one I did not know, Crabbe, Goyle and Pansy. Malfoy forcefully pushed me down on one of the seats, closed the door and sat down between Pansy and me.The group of Slytherins looked at us in utter confusion and waited for an explanation.
"Did you ever realize how uncomfortable these seats are?" Malfoy asked looking at the other Slytherins as if he didn't notice their confusion.
"What did you bring that Gryffindor for?" the guy I did not know asked straight out.
"I hoped for you to ask this question. As I just told you, these seats are not particularly comfortable so I decided to help myself to a cushion." Malfoy explained and carefully lay his head on my lap while placing his feet on Pansy's. I tried shaking him off but he gave me a look making clear he'd make me stay either way.
"I still don't know why they put you in Gryffindor, Granger." Pansy suddenly addressed me. "You would do better in Ravenclaw. All the nerds are chosen as Ravenclaws it's just you, who is in Gryffindor. However you would have also suited Hufflepuff, wimpy as you are always helping that fool Longbottom in Potions. Only Slytherin would not suit you as naturally no Mudbloods are allowed."
I could feel Malfoy's head shake of laughter. It took him some time until he caught himself again.
"You're right Pansy. Slytherin doesn't allow Mudbloods but she is allowed to help us spy on the other students, isn't she? She would probably never do so but it could help her survive once the Dark Lord comes back to his full power. He would perhaps accept a Mudblood when she's supporting Slytherin. She could be a spy for us as nobody of that stupid Order of the Eagle - or whatever it's called would suspect a Mudblood to cooperate with the dark side." Malfoy suggested.
"Yeah, nobody would suspect me because I will never support Lord Volde-"
"Never say his name aloud! Show some respect and call him 'You-Know-Who' or the Dark Lord." the Slytherin I didn't know bellowed.
"Calm down, Warrington. She is just used to say his name because she hangs around with Potter all the time and we all know that Potter is an idiot." Malfoy tried calming the other boy down.
"You git, Harry is no idiot only for saying Lord V-" I stopped mid-sentence after being hit in the face by the older Slytherin.
"You filthy, useless, stupid Mudblood. Don't you dare say his name aloud again." he spat in my face and left the department.
"Now not even Slytherins are allowed to hit girls." Malfoy sighed and gave me an apologetic smile.
I couldn't help but faintly smile back. Obviously, Pansy had noticed it too and told him in an angry tone that we would soon arrive in Hogsmeade and left.
"Now that Pansy obviously is angry with me, we surely won't share a carriage so I will take you Granger. Crabbe, Goyle you will not share with us as I don't want to be squeezed to death." Malfoy expressed with a small laugh.
