Soon it was the end of term. I was in my dorm packing. Everyone else had finished before me but I decided to take my time. I looked over at the clock on the wall.
Only half an hour to go.
Suddenly the door opened. I quickly stood up. Priscilla Prince stood outside the room.
'Finnigan wants to know if you're coming to the Great Hall.'
'Why don't you come into the room?'
'I'd rather not. I don't know what you're capable of.'
'I didn't mean to hit her, Priscilla!'
'Tell that to Bluddersmith, not me. Are you coming to the Great Hall?'
'Is Bluddersmith alright? Can I go see her?'
'Yeah, if you want to go all the way down to St Mungos.'
'She's been sent to St Mungos?'
'Yeah. Anyway, I need to know if you're coming to the Great Hall?'
'Yeah. In a minute.'
Priscilla turned around and I shut the door. I stepped over my trunk and sat on my bed. That's when my stomach grumbled. I hadn't eaten much in the past two weeks, mostly due to the fact of wanting to avoid the Great Hall.
Everywhere I went, everyone was staring at me. By this point everyone had heard the story of how Catarneigh Salucci had almost killed Natalia Bluddersmith. Like most rumours it always got changed to make it more exciting. I was annoyed to find that Tilly- my now ex-friend had ignited one rumor which was pretty harsh- I purposely targeted Bluddersmith...
'Hey, Catarneigh.' said Lucy, who I only noticed was now standing in front of me.
'Sorry.' I said.
Two girls walked past us. One of them looked at me then back to her friend and started whispering.
'Leave her alone!' shouted Lucy.
The two other girls quickly walked off.
'Thanks,' I said, now feeling much better that Lucy was there.
'It's awright. Come on, everyone's on their way to the boats.'
Soon we were on the Hogwarts Express. The one good thing about everyone avoiding me was that me and Lucy got our own compartment.
'Bluddersmith's at St Mungos, you know.' I said, sadly.
'St Mungos?' asked Lucy.
She's a Muggleborn, Cat.
'It's a hospital were people go if...magic goes wrong. I dunno. I don't know much about it.'
'It's awright. I don't know much about the Muggle word. It's gonna be strange going back there. All the magic lost.'
'Magic's only lost when you stop believing in it.'
After a couple more hours of us getting to know each other more the train stopped and it was time to get off. We all made our way through the different barriers to get back to where we came from. I ran through the Liverpool barrier and in less than ten seconds I was back in Liverpool. Away from all the staring faces. Basically, I was home.
