8. Halloween

It's been about a month since I received the letter and I still haven't told anyone. I know my friends are worried about me, but how do I tell them that I am being forced to let go of our friendship? How do I tell them that my parents are evil and mean? How do I tell them that I wasn't supposed to be in Hufflepuff? How do I tell Harry that I feel for him, but I'm supposed to stay far away from him?

I think about all my worries as I hear the teacher mumble words to the class. A tap on my shoulder suddenly makes me jump. I turn around noticing the frizzy brown hair girl with dirt brown eyes. She points to a book and then her wand.

I realize the whole class is practicing a spell. My cheeks turn red as I feel the heat pouring through them. Embarrassed, I half smile, "thank you" I say to her, "thank you so much."

"You should pay more attention." Hermione snaps. I turn back around picking up my wand and looking around the room once more.

I turn the book to its correct page and begin to read what the direction says on the page. Swish and flick, and of course saying the spell name. I decide to give it a try. "Wingardum Leviosa" I say as I do the motions of the spell, but I didn't do it correctly as a thick cloud of smoke comes through my wand and the feather burned to ash. Suddenly I hear Hermione talk to Neville.

"You're saying it wrong," she snaps once again, "It's Wing-gar-dium Levi-o-sa." she says teaching them to make the gar nice and long.

"You do it, then if you're so clever." Ron says as he mumbles. Hermione smiles and does the spell perfectly as the feather rose above her head. I awe in amazement. Professor Flitwick claps as he tells as to look up as she has done the spell wonderfully. I look over to see Ron sink under his chair, obviously embarrassed. 


Once class has ended I leave and go outside where its a bit chilly and the sun is hiding behind the clouds. The fresh airs keeps me calm as I begin to freak out about the letter once more. I keep thinking about it until I heard Ron talk to Harry. It was about Hermione and I feel sorrow for her. I she her pass Harry, hurrying to hide somewhere. I rush to follow her as I first glared at the two boys. 


As I run, I feel the cold wind against my face causing my cheeks to turn pink and my hair to dance.

It was a nice and sunny day out, my mood feeling pretty decent as earlier in the day I felt like crap. Ryan and Mackenzie quickly comes to my side followed by Ron and Harry. Brooms lays everywhere on the grassy ground and I begin to feel slightly terrified, yet joyful.

"Well, what are you waiting for?" Madam Hooch barks as she arrives. I pick up the old wooden broom holding it in my hands. Ron nudges me in which I put it back on the ground. I can hear Madam Hooch talk as she announces for us to say, "up." I do what I'm told. "Up" I yell as the broom flew into my hands. I look over as many of the kids are still speaking to their brooms while me and Harry had our brooms in are hands with no problem.

"Now I want you to mount to your brooms." She shows us how to do it, making sure none of us will slide off. "Malfoy, no," she yells, "you are not doing it correct." I can hear Harry and Ron snicker, including Mackenzie and Ryan as they were giggling as well. 

I snap out of my haze when I reach a bathroom. I can hear sniffling and a slight crying. My heart sinks. I forget about everything and focus on Hermione who is hurting more. "Are you okay?" I ask as I lean against the sinks and look into the mirror. Silence stands before me, so I wait and wait and wait. Finally, I get bored and go into the stall next to her, "Thank you about earlier," I say nicely, "It really means a lot as I haven't been myself lately." Sniffles, "no thank you" she whispers, "Its really nice of you to check up on me. You see, I haven't really made any friends. Everyone hates me."

I frown and sigh as suddenly stomping noises are in the bathroom with us, following a huge growl. 


The foul stench filled our noises as a gigantic beast tries to smack us with a huge baseball bat. If I didn't know any better, I'd say he is trying to kill us. 

Hermione screams as I stay frozen in fear, not moving a single bone in my body. "Eliza" She screams, "watch out!" I shake my head removing the daze I was in and dashing towards the sink. I move just in time as he violently strikes his bat to where I was. Sweat pours down my face as I look to Hermione. Hermione takes cover as she places her hands above her head so that it protects her head from falling objects while she's screaming at the top of her lungs. 

My heart is pounding fast as I feel the loud beats slamming against my chest. Should I run to get help? I wonder in my head. The teachers would know what to do? Or should I test out some magic? Wait... I left my wand in the classroom. Crap. Anyways, I shouldn't leave Hermione, she terrified and I'm not blaming her. If it isn't for her, I'd do the exact same thing.  Maybe I should scream along with her? No Eliza, you will be screaming along with her. There's a freaking monster in the girls bathroom. Stupid perverted thing. 

I go ahead and scream bloody murder as If I don't then there's a 99% chance that I will get murdered along with Hermione. With that I run and take cover by Hermione by the sinks. I'd be no good distracting especially when I don't even have my wand. 

If I was a gift from the Gods, Harry and Ron show up with there eyes and mouths open. By this point the beastly thing starts smashing the sinks as we back up into the wall. "Help us!" Hermione screams. I nod agreeing with her. 

"Confuse it!" Harry screams desperately at Ron. Ron throws something at the monster and it turns away from us. As that something hit the wall and made a small noise. I feel the pressure slowly drift away as I'm not the monsters target anymore. But instead of fixing his attention towards Ron, he marks his next target on Harry. 

"Oy, pea-brain!" Ron yells as he throws yet another object at the beast. It pause turning towards Ron about ready to attack the red-head. 

"Run Ron," Harry hollers, "just run!" This time Hermione and I are huddle up next to each other. I can feel her shaking as I'm sure she can feel me doing the same. Are mouths are open wide and I'm sure flies are going find their way in them as the smell is so terrible it is already attracting them. 

The monster turns his head turns Harry as he seems confused as to which boy he would go after. Harry made a good call. 

It roars loudly and starts to make his way towards Ron as Harry jumps his way onto the trolls back. He tightens his arm around his neck. My vision begins to blur so I close my eyes and sit down dragging Hermione along with me. I can hear crash and banging and yelling. Oh how I love this school. I begin to think. 

I feel a tap and I reopen my eyes as I see the monster on the ground knocked out. Wow they beat up an ugly beast that tried to not only kill me, but my friend Hermione as well. How can I not be friends with them? How do I pretend that they aren't my friends? How do I tell them that life freaking sucks balls. "...dead?" I hear Hermione ask. I quickly zone back in as I hear a range of footsteps sprinting quickly. 

"Eww troll boogers." Ron says disgustedly.  A bunch of professors shows up in the bathroom looking nervous and confused. "What on earth were you all thinking?" McGonagall says angerly. "You are lucky you weren't killed. Now why are you not in your dormitories?" Snape glances towards Harry giving him a cold look then notices me and seems slightly surprise. Hermione speaks up explaining to McGonagall that they were only looking for her as she wanted to defeat the troll looking monster thing and if they haven't then she would be dead. 

"And what about Miss Griswold?" She asks sternly. I clear my throat. "I had to use to restroom so I came in here then the monster shows up. I am very thankful that Hermione showed up then Ron and Harry as I would be the one laying on the floor right now."  She nods and takes a moment of silence. "Hmm, I shall inform your parents on this. They will need to know." Professor Snape says eagerly jumping at the opportunity to say something.  

My hands are still shaking- no cross that, my body is shaking as now I feel all weird and crappy. My heart is tingling as well as my whole body. I want to scream out, but I can't. I won't. 

"Five points will be taken from both of you." Professor McGonagall says, "I am very disappointed in you two." 

I sigh and frown knowing that it could be worse, but I look around seeing professor Quirrell still sitting on the toilet and Professor Snape staring at me with his beaty black eyes. 

"But I shall reward you all with ten points as not many first years can say they taken down a full-grown mountain troll. Now scatter along." 

With that I race down to the common room, but before I say thank you to Harry and Ron. I could see them smiling as they are now saying good things about Hermione. I smile in return feeling a heart wrenching tug, pulling at my heart. 

When I reach the common room, all eyes all staring at me. I see two in particular as they rush to hug me. I am being swooshed in the process."I thought you were a goner!"
