10. Chapter 10

 {if anyone needs to know anything about Queen Elizabeth II, I know everything there is about her. I had to write a two page essay & give an oral presentation about it too. So yeah ;)}

By the next week everyone had heard about Colin and people were on alert for anything fishy. Everyone had started to buy voodoo objects just to hope that the monster going around Hogwarts wouldn't get them next. Charlotte felt guilty for the way she treated Colin, she should have been nicer. Ginny suspected that their brothers would get expelled and she would mumble things inaudible for Charlotte to hear.

As she returned from the dungeons one cold afternoon she was met by the Hogwarts' groundkeeper, Hagrid. He cleared his voice, "Are you Charlotte?" His voice boomed, making his features appear fierce. Charlotte was a little frightened of the giant man, but she nodded. "Ah I can tell. Yeh look like yer mum, but o'course yeh got yer dad's looks too." He smiled. It was a warm smile, which made Charlotte fear him less.

"You knew my parents?" She asked.

"O' course I did! The best wizard n' witch I knew, they were. Tell yeh what, why don' yeh come over ter my hut an' we can talk all abou' them, eh?" The more Hagrid spoke, the more Charlotte liked him. She nodded once more, and with Hagrid's beard twisted into a smile they went outside the castle, walking towards the grounds at the edge of the forrest.

Hagrid's hut was somewhat small to Charlotte's expectations. It was a one room house with meats hanging from the cupboards. the cabin had the scent of burning wood and Charlotte instantly fell in love with his boarhound, Fang, that greeted her with a friendly lick to the face. "Get off o' her, Fang!" Hagrid's voice bellowed through the room.

"Oh no, he's perfectly fine! I have always wanted a dog, but Remus would never allow it." Charlotte told him as she patted Fang's head.

"Remus? Remus Lupin?"

"Yes, sir."

"Huh, that makes sense." Hagrid said as he turned around with a boiling kettle. "Tea?"

Charlotte nodded and was handed a large cup overflowing with tea. "What were they like? My parents, that is."

"James 'n Lily were very brave, Charlotte, that's one thing yer ought ter know. Never met anyone as brave as them. Reminds me o' last year when I had ter tell Harry the same thing." He chuckled, taking a bite out of what he called a rock cake. Charlotte politely declined as she said that the smells in Snape's dungeon made her lose her appetite. "Heh, don't blame yeh."

"What do you mean you had to tell Harry? Harry didn't know?"

"Oh yes, His- I mean your- aunt 'n uncle never told him anythin'." He said, his eyes full of disgust.

"Anything?" She repeated.

"Nothin', didn't even know who he was." He gave the rest of his rock cake to Fang, who had drooled all over Hagrids leg. "Go ahead, take it yer filthy dog."

Their conversation continued until the birds stopped singing and were replaced by the sounds of crickets chirping. Charlotte had learned so much about her parents she couldn't wait to tell Harry, that is, if he didn't already know. Hagrid said they best be on their way to the feast, so she took one last gulp of tea and said goodbye to Fang. Hagrid locked his cabin door behind him and the two of them made their way back to the castle as the sun died away.

"We ought ter do this more often, maybe you can get Harry ter come next time, eh?" Hagrid said as they entered the Great Hall, which was filled with loud conversation and laughter.

"Absolutely!" Charlotte replied she loved talking with Hagrid, someone who would actually want to talk about her parents rather than avoid the conversation like Remus did. Hagrid smiled at her and patted her a little too hard on the back; and he made his way to the teacher's table. As she watched him sit down by Professor Flitwick, she caught a glimpse of Professor Dumbledore who looked right at her and tipped his head, smiling. She smiled back shyly and sat next to Ginny at the table.

"Where you with him all afternoon?" Richard asked as he put another heaving spoon of Shepard's Pie into his plate.

"Yeah, he's very nice." Charlotte said, filling her plate with delicious food.

"My brothers talk about him all the time." Ginny chimed in.

"I hear he used to go to school here." Said Richard.

"Oh really? I thought only wizards and witches could go here?" Jackson, Richard's best friend, said confusingly.

"Well here's the good part, turns out he's half-" Charlotte zoned out of the conversation as Harry, Ron, and Hermione sat to her right.

"I met Hagrid today." She said as soon as Harry took a drink of his water.

"Oh good, did you like him?" He asked, eyeing her.

"Yes! He is very friendly. He said he wants us both to visit him sometime."

"Then we shall." He smiled at her.


December came around and fresh snow had fallen on the Hogwarts grounds. Professor McGonagall had taken the list for the people who would stay for Christmas and Charlotte saw Harry's name on the list. Why wouldn't he want to be home with their family, actual blood family. She wished she could meet them, Harry never talked about them and that made her even more curious. She was excited for Christmas break, she has missed Remus and writing to him wasn't the same as talking to him.

"Charlotte! Charlotte!" Bryce ran to her one day. "They're starting a dueling club, we have to go!"

"A what?" She asked putting her Astronomy book into her bag.

"A dueling club, I think it'll be really beneficial now days."

"What time does it start?" She asked.

"The first meetings tonight at eight in the Great Hall. I can meet you at the main staircase." He said hopefully. Charlotte nodded and they talked excitedly about it the rest of the day.

They met each other and together they went into the Great Hall, which its tables had been replaced with one long stage in the center. At eight sharp Lockhart walked on to the platform, "Can everyone see me? Can everyone hear me? Excellent."

"Professor Dumbledore has given me permission to start a dueling club to prepare you all in case you are in a situation and need to defend yourself." He smiled. "Let me introduce my assistant, Professor Snape. He has agreed to help me with a short demonstration before we start. But don't fret- you'll still  have your potions master when I'm finished with him."

He and Snape went in front of each other and bowed then backed away into a stance, with their wands high above their heads. Lockhart counted, "One...Two...Three..."

Snape shouted, "Expelliarmus!" A flash of white light flew Lockhart right off his feet and fell feet back. He got up quickly and said, "Well, there it is the disarming spell but Professor, if you don't mind my saying it was pretty obvious what you were going to do. If I had wanted to stop you it would have been simply too easy." Lockhart laughed, shinning his white teeth.

"Maybe you should teach the students how to block unfriendly spells." Snape said through gritted teeth.

"Yes, yes! Wonderful idea! I shall need a volunteer pair. Ah, Potter and Weasley!" Lockhart said motioning for Harry and Ron to come on stage.

"Weasley's wand causes devastation with the simplest spells. We'll be sending what's left of Potter to the hospital wing in a matchbox. How about Malfoy?" Snape sneered, then motioning Draco to get on the stage with Harry.

Harry and Draco faced each other in the middle of the stage, "On my count. One...Two...Three" 

Malfoy raised his wand and cried, "Serpensortia!" A black snake shot out of his wand and fell to the floor between them. Charlotte screamed and grabbed onto Bryce's arm.

"Don't worry, Potter. I'll get rid of it.." Snape said uninterestedly.

"Allow me!" Lockhart shouted and raised his wand to the moving snake. There was a pop and the snake flew into the air and gravity pulled it back down, now it was more mad than never. It hissed and slithered until it stopped and looked straight at a second-year Hufflepuff. Charlotte saw Harry move toward the snake and then say something unhuman. It was something she had never heard of and her eyes widened, he was speaking in some other language.

"What do you think you're playing at?" The boy said, storming out of the Hall. Snape moved his wand and the snake vanished into black smoke. It was silent and everyone was staring at Harry.
