Niki woke up early the next day. She was so excited for her classes! She thought her favorite one would probably be potions, because she just loved baking and cooking, and how different could the two be, really?
She walked downstairs, then decided to bug Harry, who was still in the boy's dorms. She skipped to the stairs to the boys dormitories, then bounced up them. Once she came to the door, she paused. She knew that the stairs to the girls dorms turned to a slide if a boy tried to get up them. There had to be something that happened if a girl tried to get into the boys dorms. She decided to try anyway. Opening the door, she braced herself, but nothing happened. Grinning in triumph, she skipped into the dorm, where Neville, Dean, and Seamus were already awake. Ron and Harry were still asleep, predictably. She put her finger to her lips to keep the three boys quiet, and tiptoed to Harry's bed. The boys, sensing that something was about to happen, stayed silent, and watched, looking excited. Once Niki was crouched down beside Harry's bed, she picked up the water jug, lifted it above his head, and tipped it over, at the same time she screamed, "BLOODY MURDER!" Harry sat bolt upright, yelling and looking around, flailing his limbs. The water jug smashed on his head. "MURDER! MURDER! DEATH! BLOOD! HELP! MURDER!" Niki continued screaming.
Ron screamed and sat up, too. Neville, Dean and Seamus fell out of bed, they were laughing so hard.
Harry finally stopped panicking, and saw Niki on the floor next to his now sopping wet bed, and the other boys in his dormitory rolling around next to their beds, all four laughing. He looked at Ron, who had just stopped screaming. Niki looked up at him.
"WHAT?" Harry yelled, furious.
"I thought that you'd like to know that today is our first day at Hogwarts. Also, I wanted to say good morning, but you wouldn't wake up." Niki said, smiling at him, looking all cute and innocent.
"And you couldn't wake me up a normal way?" Harry shouted, still furious.
"Well, I tried. I tried really hard. I even missed breakfast and our first class to keep trying, and the other boys decided to stay and watch. Just so you know, Potions starts in five minutes." Niki said.
"WHAT?" Harry and Ron yelled, leaping out of bed. They started grabbing their clothes and getting dressed, so fast that by the time they were done, the dormitory was a mess and almost unrecognizable. Chasing after Harry and Ron as they rushed out of the dorm and through the portrait hole, Niki decided to wait until they were waiting in front of Snape's Potions class before she told them.
"Um, Harry?" Niki said, holding in her laughter as she backed away slowly, sure that Harry would try to kill her when he found out that it was a prank.
"What, Niki?" Harry asked, panting.
Backing away faster now, Niki continued speaking, talking really fast. "Just thought you'd like to know that it's six in the morning and that none of even the teachers are even at breakfast yet bye!" she said, all in one breath, then she turned and sprinted away. Harry ran after her, but didn't catch up to her until she was back in the common room.
Percy Weasley pushed past Niki as she opened the Portrait Hole. He said something about Dumbledore...
All of Gryffindor was awake now, and one seventh year was in the middle of a crowd, who seemed to be panicking.
"SHUT UP!" the boy said. "I've sent Percy to get Dumbledore. He should be here any minute, and then we'll explain about the blood and stuff in the first year boys dorms."
"What happened?" a girl called from the opposite side of the common room as Niki, Harry, and Ron, who were all three standing motionless in front of the Portrait Hole.
"Well, we all heard Niki scream about murder. Once we got into the first year dorms, it was trashed, there was blood in a lot of places, and the dorms were deserted. We can't find any of the boys, or Niki."
Niki turned around and realized that the other three boys were coming in. They had followed them. The rest of Gryffindor thought there actually had been murder! Harry turned and looked at her, and they both stifled their laughter.
"Look! There they all are!" someone near them shouted. The entire crowd turned around.
"Harry! Niki! Ron! Dean! Seamus! Neville! What happened?" the seventh year boy asked.
"I was just pranking Harry and Ron. I didn't realize you could all here me." Niki started explaining. "Harry and Ron started getting ready for Potions, because I told them they were late for classes. They trashed the dorm. I don't know where the blood came from, though."
"I do." Harry said. "I got cut on a knife that Ron had brought up from the common room, Fred and George gave it to him, to cut some rope and string and stuff his mum had used to tie his stuff together." Harry held up his hands, which were cut and bleeding. "The blood must have gotten on my stuff."
At that moment, McGonagall came in.
A/N: So? What did you all think of Niki torturing Harry? Pretty funny, right? Anyway, please submit characters for the contest! It ends August 15, and that's only Monday! Also, sorry for the cliffhanger, but the next chapter should be up really soon.
Did you notice how Niki screamed bloody murder? That's an expression my mom uses if someone screams like someones being murdered, does anybody else use it, too?
