14. Misschief managed

James' p.o.v.:

Our first lesson today was DADA. As usual, Sirius wanted to skip this lesson, so we did. But I had a better idea. I took the Cloak and wrapped it around us. We went to Diagon Alley. First, we went to 'Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour'. We both choose chocolate and raspbery flavoured with chopped nuts. While enjoying it, we decided where we wanted to go next. Once in a while, we checked the Map to make sure we wouldn't get in trouble. The next shop - my favourite one - was 'Gambol and Japes Wizarding Joke Shop'. I bought 10 bomblets. The fun thing about them is that when they explode, the smoke is not grey, but it has different colours. Like that, you barely can see anything. Then, Sirius bought some firework in 'Dr Filibuster's Fabulous Wet-Start, No-Heat Fireworks'. This is going to be so much fun! Before returning to Hogwarts, we bought lots of candy in 'Honey Dukes'. DADA was almost finished. FInally, Remus and Peter entered the common room. "Where have you been?" asked Peter. "Anywhere and nowhere." answered Sirius mysterious; Remus sighed. "Please don't tell me you brought Gryffindor in trouble again." said Remus severe. "Have we ever brought Gryffindor in trouble?" I asked, trying not to laugh. "I've stopped counting already". Answered Remus, rolling his eyes. Sirius and I couldn't hold it anymore and laughed; Peter laughed too. Remus gave it up and laughed as well.

We were on our way to Herbology and Lily and her friends walked next to us. "What's so funny, Potter? If you bullied Severus again..." "Wow, calm down, Evans. Don't worry about it. We didn't do anything." I cut her off. "Then why weren't you in DADA?" she asked curious. "That is not your business. Don't worry, we didn't do anything to Snevilly. Actually, that might be a good idea, what do you think, James?" Asked Sirius; I had to bite my lip to not burst out in laughter. Luckily, Lily interrupted me. "Don't you even think about it or I'll tell professor Mcgonagall. Black, you're as bad as Potter." "I'll take that as a compliment." Said Sirius smiling; Lily gave him a deathly glare and entered greenhouse 1, we followed her.

Lily's p.o.v.:

Potter and Black were acting strange. Even more strange than they usually do. Sure they skip DADA more often, but Severus had a free period as well. If I find out they did anything to Severus, then they're dead. Or at least expelled. Anyway, we had Herbology with Ravenclaw. "Hello class. Does anybody of you know what this is?" Asked professor Sprout and she held a kind of mushroom in her hands; I raised my hand. "Yes, miss Evans?" "That is a Leaping Toadstool. A Leaping Toadstool is a magical mushroom which has the ability to jump." I said. "Very good, miss Evans. Ten points for Gryffindor." Potter stared at me, I smirked to him. he should gain points, not always make sure Gryffindor loses points....

Remus' p.o.v.:

For the next lesson of Herbology, we have to write an essay of 200 words about the Leaping Toadstool. After lunch, we had Charms with Hufflepuff. "Good afternoon class. Today, I'm going to teach you the spell 'Bombarda'. Bombarda is the incantation of a charm used to provoke small explosions. The incantation is Portuguese or Spanish for 'bombard' or 'bomb'." We practiced the spell on a steel cage. This spell was pretty easy; yet Peter managed somehow to melt the cage. Professor Flittwick wasn't really happy with that. The next lesson was History of Magic. Most students fell immediately asleep, but this time, James and Sirius stayed awake. They didn't even bring a pillow with them. Strange... When professor Binns fell asleep as well, James exploded a bomblet so most students woke up. Yet, professor Binns was still sleeping. Then, the show began. Sirius contrasted fiework. How did they get that? The firework had the shape of a dragon. It flew through professor Binns (he's a ghost) and then entered the classroom followed by the students. We enjoyed the firework. James and Sirius sat down next to me and Peter. "I have to admit it, misschief managed." I said; James and Sirius smiled.
