22. The Map (20)
DOUBLE UPDATE GO ME!! btw im going to either be updating really frequently, or like never for the next month, because i have trimester exams :( but i also have holiday break so idk
"Ready?" I ask Harry with a wide smile on my face. The twins told me all about how the map works and i couldn't wait to see it. I lower Harry's wand down onto the parchment and whisper, "I solemnly swear that im up to no good."
As black lines forming a map of Hogwarts appear of the map, a mask of amazement washes over Harrys pale face. His green eyes widen. "The twins gave you that?!" He ponders.
Opening it up, I see that it probably wasnt a good idea doing this in the middle of the corridors, as Snape and Filch were prowling our way.
Harry sees this too and mutters into my ear, "Lets go."
Following the map we pass Snape and Filch. As we turn a corner i see a group of kids from my old school. My old friends. With a pang in my stomach i realize that i haven't talked with them in a while. And, when they left at the end of this term, it was quite possible that i wouldnt be leaving with them. im a witch now, not just another american muggle. We have to walk past them to get into another corridor, where a statue of a witch will be, and that will lead us to hogsmeade. Slowly creeping past them i hear one of their voices go over the others laughing, "Why were we friends with her anyways? she was always annoying. i was only putting up with her because you guys are cool." Jake. Jake had said that.
(authors note- i realized that i sorta forgot about her other friends, but i didnt know how to make her realize they didnt want to be her friend, so i had to take that little quote out of a text i read from a guy in my grade on my friends phone, talking about me. sorry this is a little self inserting but i have no imagination rn)
