Only 2 hours after we got in bed, we had to wake up again. We took a shower and ate breakfast. I think it's the first time that James and Sirius are quiet too. But then again, we're all just really tired. The first lesson was replaced by a demonstration. We gathered round in the classroom of Defends Against the Dark Arts. "Welcome everyone!" professor Merrythought spoke. Everyone of the second year was here. "Professor Dumbledore gave me the permission to open a duelling club! Now, I need 2 volunteers to fight against eachother. But, disarm only! Are there any volunteers?" It was silent for a moment. "I challenge James Potter!"A blond boy with blue eyes spoke. He is in Slytherin. All students held their breath in. Everybody knows how good James is. "Alright, that will be Lucius Malfoy versus James Potter." said professor Merrythought. They both climbed on the stage. "Wands at the ready." They greated, but only because they're supposed to do. James never spoke to that Malfoy kid, but I think that will change; in a bad way. "Stupefy!" Yelled Lucius, but James was quickier. "Tarantallegra!" "Disarm only!" Shouted professor Merrythought, but James' spell already hit Lucius. It was really funny because Lucius started to dance and he couldn't stop himself. Everybody was laughing. Even professor Merrythought couldn't help but smile. "That's enough for now! Everybody to their common room except you two." Said professor Merrythought while she pointed at James and Lucius after she stopped Lucius. Remus, Sirius and I waited outside the classroom. We could hear every word they said. "Disarm only! Which word don't you understand?" "I wanted to disarm, but he started!" said James. Remus, Sirius and I tried not to laugh. Malfoy didn't say anything. "You both will get detention for a week. And 20 points will be taken from Gryffindor and Slytherin."After that, Malfoy and James left the classroom. Then, Malfoy turned around and pointed at James. "I'll get you." "Good luck." said James smiling. In the corridors, Lily and Molly passed our way. "Hey girls, how was my performance?" "You're a jerk." said Lily and they moved on. James turned around. "Guess you like that!" He said and we started to laugh. "Where have you learned that spell? It's hilarious!" said Sirius. "I learned it from my father a fiew years ago." answered James. "I think you have to be careful, James. Malfoy might be up to something."said Remus. "Like you say: 'might be'. Dond't worry, I'll be ready then." "Yes, but you don't know him. And clearly, he is also good in spells and..." "And I appreciate your anxiety. Thanks, mate." said James.
After lunch, James and Sirius went to the Quidditch Team Selection. Peter and I were sitting in the rostrum. They had to do some kind of exercises like 'catching the snitch' or 'beat the bludger' to see what posistion they would be. Two hours later, the Gryffindor Quidditch Team Captain decided that James would be a Chaser and Sirius a Beater. They were both very happy with that; they high-fived eachother. They took a shower and we went to the Great Hall to eat dinner. The second years were still talking about James and Lucius. We looked at the Slytherin House and saw that Malfoy was looking angry at us. Severus was watching ut too. Sirius clenched his fists and Severus looked away. I pitched Sirius quiet hard. "Awch! What was that for?" Said Sirius. "Leave him alone." "James and I didn't bully him since you told us to, so shut up!" Said Sirius angry and he left the Great Hall. "Well done, Remus. Well done." Said James sarcastic while shaking his head. He followed Sirius. I wanted to be alone so I went to the library. Peter went to the common room.
