I got really cold water in my face so I kinda jumped, which meant I was awake. I looked around to see what happened and then I saw James standing with a bucket in his hands and a grimace on his face. "What was that for?!" "That was my revenge on what you did a fiew days ago." said James smiling. "Fine. But you take the mattress outside to let it dry in the sun." James lifted his shoulders and said: "It's worth it." He took the mattress outside. It was quiet funny to see him plod, but I didn't watch it the whole time becuase I wanted to take a shower.
After James took a shower, we ate breakfast and went to the King's Cross Station where we met Remus and Peter. We said goodbye to the parents and found ourselves a compartment after a while. "Anything from the trolley?" We waited in the corridor of the train to buy some candy. Three guesses who was also waiting... Snevilly. James and I grimaced at eachother. Snevilly noticed us and tried to get away asap. When we were in the compartment again, we started to laugh; Remus didn't. "What's the matter Remus?" asked Peter. "You have to leave Severus alone. He didn't do anything to you so just leave him." Remus has always been the serious guy but not like this. "Woah, mate, calm down. Why are you spoiling the fun?" I asked. He really was spoiling the fun; that's not cool. Not at all. "Because it's wrong Sirius! Don't you understand? Just leave him alone! If you do James, than you might get a chance with Lily." Said Remus pointing at James. "Don't involve Lily with this!" said James. "Oh really, why not? Forgotten they're best friends? Forgotten she hates you because you bully Severus?" "Shut up! Shut up! You've made your point okay? Happy now? Just shut up!" said James loud. "James, calm down." I said and he sat down again. "Promise you'll stop bullying him." Remus said. "Wow, wait, what?" I said confused. "What happened to you mate?" "Sirius, I mean it. Stop bullying him!" "Allright, we will stop." said James. I looked at him surprised, but that wasn't a good idea since we started to laugh. Remus looked angy at us and he left the compartment. "Remus, where are you going?" aksed James; but Remus ignored us. "We have to change our clothers, guys." I said, so we did.
Finally, we arrived at the castle. Dumbledore and the Hat gave their usual speeches. Remus wans't sitting with us on the table. He sat next to a boy with red hair named Arthur Weasley and talked to him. In the common room, Remus came to us and we talked. I think he accepted the fact that we won't stop bullying Snevilly; even though he will keep on saying that it's wrong. Sirius and I decided that it might be wise to leave Snevilly for at least a week. Otherwise, Remus might be really angry. We still talked alot, ate candy and played chess. After a fiew hours, we went to bed.
The next mourning we took a shower and ate breakfast. Our fist lesson was Herbology. "Goodmorning everyone!" "Goodmorning professor Sprout." The class replied. We had Herbology with Ravenclaw. "Today, we will pot young Mandrakes. Whenever unearthed, the root screams. The scream of a mature Mandrakes when it's unearthed will kill any person who hears it, but a young Mandrake's scream will usually only knock a person out for several hours. Therefore, you have to wear these earmuffs to protect your ears from the Mandrake's cries." She said while putting the earmuffs on; we did the same. We pulled the Mandrake's out of the earth and they screamed deafening. "For the next lesson, you'll have to write an essay about the Etymology of Mandrakes." The whole class sighed and left the room. "I can't believe it! The first lesson of the schoolyear and we already have homework!" I said exasperated. "You better get used to it. Maybe we can write the essay now? Then we don't have to worry about it anymore." suggested Peter. We all agreed. It was indeed better to write it now already. We went to the library and started to look for a book about Mandrakes. "Do you still have that book from last year?" asked Remus. "Yeah, but I think we need a secret room or something to hide it. I don't want that anyone notice it." I said. "What about the Shrieking Shack?" suggested Remus. "Have you lost your mind? It's the most haunted building in Britain! And according to Nearly Headless Nick, not even the Hogwarts ghosts will enter it!" said Sirius scared; his voice raise up. Normally, I would laugh with him right now, but even I am scared of the Shrieking Shack. Even though, I will never admit. "Nonsense!" exclaimed Remus. "And why are you so sure of that?" "Well... I... Uhm..." Stuttered Remus while blushing. "C'mon, mate. You know you can tell us everything!" encouraged Sirius. "It's just... When I'm turning into a werewolf - they call it Lycanthropy - I have to go there since it's very dangerous..." Remus' face was now as red as a tomato. Sirius gave him a hug to comfort him. "It's allright, mate." "So the Shrieking Shack is not haunted?" I asked to break the silence. "Not at all, it might look like it is, but it's not." We nodded. "Do you know how to get in?" asked Peter. "Yes, but let's do that tonight. First, we have to write this essay."
