16. A dangerous game
It's finally Friday, lunchtime. After lunch, it's the Quidditch Match between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. But now, I'm watching people. They're laughing and talking. My view crossed the seats of James, Remus and Peter... But where is Sirius? I searched him with my eyes and found out he was sitting at the table of Ravenclaw, infront of Rose Jordan. Strange... There is a small flacon in her hand. What did she put in Sirius' drink? Is it poison? I have to find out! I slipped to Sirius' seats and switched his cup with mine although I knew he drunk of it already. Nobody noticed me as I went to the Room of Enquiries. I unfortunately don't have a classroom here I can use as a 'lab', but the Room of Enquiries transforms into anything I need so... I examined the liquid and after half an hour, I knew it was a very powerful love potion. Why does Rose want to bewitch Sirius with a love potion? Wait a minute... She wants to sabotage the Match! I know how to make an antidote, but it will take an hour or two... The Match will be finished by then.
"Potter! Where is Black?" Yelled Hamblin at me as we were waiting for Sirius to begin the Match. "I don't know." "Speak of the devil..." mumbled Morrison. "Where the hell have you been?" Sirius ignored Hamblin. What's wrong with him? "You're gonna get punished for this..." Mumbled Hamblin as we entered the Field. The audience was shared into 2 flags: blue and bronze for Ravenclaw, and gold and red for Gryffindor. When I caught the Quaffle, I got hit by a Bludger on my wrist. I heard it crack so I knew it was broken. Madame Pomfrey brought me to the Hospital Wing. "I have to go back." I said after she nursed me. "Oh no, you stay right where you are." "But it's just a broken wrist!" "I'm the nurse and you're the sufferer so you're going to listen to me. And I tell you to stay in bed for now." I sighed and let myself fall in the soft bed. Half an hour later, Hamblin brought Sirius in the Hospital Wing followed by the Gryffindor Team and the teachers. "What happened?" I asked worried, but madame Pomfrey interrupted me. "Professor Dumbledore, please. There are way too many people here." "I understand, but this is urgent." Professor Dumbledore opened his mouth to continue but closed it. Everybody turned to the door since someone was running this way. To my surprise, it was Snevilly. He held a flacon with some potion in it. "What are you doing here?" I asked rude. He ignored me. "Professor... Professor Dumbledore!" He said completely out of breathe. "I know what potion Sirius drunk! It's a very powerful love potion, professor. I've made the antidote myself. It's in here." He said while lifting the flacond. I couldn't believe my ears. "I will not let you kill my best friend!" I almost yelled. He turned to me, his eyes very dark. Normally when he speaks to me, he stutters and he's scared. But this time, he spoke clear and sounded serious. "This is the only chance you've got, Potter. The love potion which is served to Sirius is the most powerful love potion I've ever seen." "Are you sure about this?" Asked madame Pomfrey; Snevilly nodded. He handed the flacon over to madame Pomfrey and she forced Sirius to drink it. "What happened?" He asked; I let out a sigh of relief.
