3. Getting Closer
I guess it was my 5th year, the year I was due to sit my OWLS that Harry and I ended up in each other's company a lot more than we used to. I don't know whether this was simply because he had more free periods now he was studying for his NEWTS, or because he was fed up of Ron and Hermione's constant bickering and felt it was nice to have someone else as company every now and then. Either way, I enjoyed his company.
This has all happened to coincide with Dean and me going through a tough time, we cannot agree on anything at the moment and I guess our differences were beginning to show. Now what?
Harry knows everything about me, we share our problems with one another and I'm glad to say we've become good friends, although I sometimes can't help but wonder why he apparently stares at me, but seems not to hear me or even acknowledge my presence. Nevertheless, I put this down to the amount he must have going on in his mind at the moment. He's having private lessons with Dumbledore, Slughorn's party's which he's forever being pressured into finding someone to take - that isn't trying to intoxicate him with love potions. (However these seemed to have suddenly stopped after Christmas.) And then of course there's Snape, forever giving Harry a hard time.
