I woke up with the sun streaming through the window. Obviously I forgot to close the curtains. I looked around the room and it took me a while to realise that I wasn't in my bedroom. I heard a sort of snoring noise and turned my head to see Isaac Montosso lying next to me. That's when I realised I wasn't wearing any clothes.
I climbed out of the bed, as quietly as I could, and began to put my clothes back on. I could hardly remember last night and I realised I had the worst headache ever. I felt sick coming up my throat and threw up in a convenient bucket. I looked back over at the bed and noticed Isaac was still asleep. Thank God.
I made my way down to the common room, hoping nobody would be up. Once I got there, I saw a few people passed out. I step over a Gryffindor lying on the floor near the portrait hole and climbed through the hole.
The castle was dead, that's when I realised it must have been something like six o'clock in the morning. I made my way up the main stairs to find a Prefect standing there. I walked past her and she gave me a look to say 'I know where you've been.'
My thoughts wandered to Tilly and Lucy and I wondered where they had gotten to last night.
I entered the Ravenclaw common room and made my way up to the third year dorms. And that's when part of my question was answered. I saw Tilly asleep with a Slytherin boy next to her.
I changed my clothes and climbed into my bed. I didn't sleep, though. My head was banging but I made my thoughts go to last night. There was a party in the Gryffindor common room. Everyone had left and I went upstairs with Isaac. Bits of what happened after that were a bit bleary, but the one thing that came back to me was the pain I left down there and that's when I realised I had lost my virginity to Isaac Montosso.
I sat on the bench on my own. I had had some potion to make my headache go away, but I felt it coming back. Lost in my own thoughts of last night, I didn't notice Shaun coming over to me.
'Hey, Meow.' I looked up. The last person I want to talk to is a Montosso.
'Hi.' I replied.
'What's up?' he sat down on the bench next to me.
'Nothing.' I lied. I wasn't about to tell him what happened last night.
'You just seem sad.'
'I'm fine. I've just got a headache.'
'You've probably got a hang-over. No doubt Tilly Polo's dying. She was gone in, like two hours.'
I smiled. I hadn't actually seen Tilly, or Lucy for that matter, all day.
'Isaac's been looking for you.'
I looked at Shaun. 'Why?'
'I dunno. He keeps on asking me where you are.'
I stood up. 'Where can I find him?'
'Look in the Great Hall. If not there, he might be in the common room or something.'
I walked back indoors. I have no idea why I was going to see Isaac. I suppose it could be 'cause I wanted to get away from Shaun. Or maybe it was because I couldn't avoid him forever.
I entered the Great Hall and he was there. Sitting on the Gryffindor Table with Abraxus Jekk.
Does he remember what happened last night?
I made my way over to him. 'Hi.' I said, nervously.
He looked at me for a second, then must have realised who I was. 'Hey. I've been looking for you all day.' he said.
'Yeah. Shaun told me.'
'How are you?'
'I've got a headache. Shaun called it a hang-over.'
'I guess last night was your first time drinking?' he laughed.
First time for everything, it would seem.
'What's your name? I know Shaun calls you Meow but that can't be-'
I didn't even tell him my name.
'Catarneigh.' Isaac, repeated. 'Listen, can we talk somewhere else?'
We walked out of the Great Hall into the surprisingly deserted corridor.
'I'm sorry.' he suddenly said.
'Why?' I asked. You know why he's sorry, stupid.
'About last night. That wasn't supposed to happen. I should have controlled myself and walked you back to your house.'
He remembered. Of course he did. 'It's okay-'
'It's not. I had sex with you and I didn't even know your name. But, I am gonna make it up to you. I don't sleep with just anyone, despite what you might have heard...I really like you, Cat, and...yeah.'
He didn't say anymore after that, he just touched my hair again. That was something else I remembered from last night.
I remembered the other day how I'd been all dreamy about him. I hadn't heard what people had said about him, and to be honest, I didn't want to know. I knew I liked him. How couldn't I? He was a fifth year of all things. But something told me I shouldn't. I dunno...Catarneigh and Isaac. Catarneigh and Isaac...I said our names over and over again in my head. Cat and Isaac...
He looked up at me. He didn't say anything, he just kissed me. Not like last night, but...this seemed something more special. And that's when I realised my heart had won.
