Monday, the lessons started again. After Herbology, we passed Lily. "Yow, Lily! Wanna go on a date?" I shouted. She looked angry at me. Sirius, Remus, Peter and I laughed. "Dude, that's not how you ask a girl on a date." said Sirius laughing. "Oh really? Have you any experience then, smarty - pants?" "Duh, haven't you notice there are quite alot of girl keeping an eye on me?" said Sirius smiling. "Do you honestly think Lily will ever love you? In her eyes, you're a jerk, remember?" said Remus. I just lifted my shoulders. "Whatever." The next lesson was DADA... Sirius and I skipped this lesson almost every time. But we thought: 'Hey, it's the first lesson after the holidays. It can't be that bad.' Yet, we were wrong. "Ah, mister Potter, mister Black. What a lovely surprise. Have you finally find your way to the classroom? It's about time, isn't it?" All the Slytherins were laughing, even Snevilly was smiling. Oh, he will regret it. "Are you coming to the common room?" Asked Peter after lunch. "No, you go already. We still have to do something." I answered. In a corridor, Sirius and I were waiting for Snevilly. "Was it funny, during DADA?" Asked Sirius to Snevilly. "I... I... I don't know what you're talking about..." "Oh really? Then why were you laughing, huh?" I asked. "James... I... I really don't know..." I hit him with my fist on his nose. I heard it crack - probably broken. "Remember, that was just a warning, got it?" I added. Sirius and I went to the common room. We had a free period. Profesoor Mcgonagall entered the common room. "Mister Potter, mister Black. Follow me to my office." This can't be good. "I see a blind eye to alot of things, boys. But I do NOT except any form of agression or violence. 25 points will be taken from Gryffindor." Sirius and I went to the common room.
"What happened?" asked Peter. "Nothing. Something about quidditch." I mumbled. Yet, Remus didn't believe me. "Something about quidditch? And she only wanted to speak you two? Not the whole team?" "It's not your business, Remus!" Said James slightly irritated. Remus whistled. "Man, what's wrong with you?" "Sorry..." "It's okay." said Remus. We still had half an hour so we played chess. Our next lesson was potions. It was the same as usually. Finally, it was time for dinner. I was really hungry, so I ate alot. "Wow, you're hungry! Even Peter doesn't eat that much." said James laughing. "I can't help it... Besides, it's quidditch practice and the match is Friday. You will need the energy. Hamblin won't have any mercy." I know it sounds like Hamblin is mean, but he is actually really nice. As a Quidditch Captain, you have to be severe. We joined the team to change our clothes and went to the field. Clearly, I was right about Hamblin. "Hello everyone. I hope everybody is well-rested after the holidays cuz it will be necessary. As you all know, we have a match Friday. Normally, we would have played already, but thanks to Potter and Black, we can practice extra hard." He turned to me and James. "Boys, make sure that doesn't happen again, alright?" We nodded shy. Then, he continued. We first had to do a warming-up and then we played a match. After the practice, I was bloody tired. We took a shower and once we were in the common room, James and I went to bed.
