13. To the Library!

Harry, Hermione, and Luna exited the empty classroom just as dinner was ending. Over the noise of the horde of students, a voice called out to them. "Harry, oi, HARRY!" The aforementioned young man turned his head and saw Fnord fighting his way through the crowd to get to him. The rugged man walked up to them with a sheepish smile on his face. "Hey, uh, Harry, before you go up, I just wanted to let you know that I mighthaveplacedaglamourcharmonyou." He said the last bit so fast that Harry barely caught it.

"What?" He exclaimed. "Why would you do that?!"

"You looked really different after you emerged from the ritual flames- I put the glamour on you because I figured that you'd be dealing with enough staring once the egg was spotted."

Harry sighed and pinched his nose. "Thanks, Fnord, but please don't ever do something like that to me again without asking first. If I had noticed I probably would have hexed you first and asked questions later. And trust me, you do not want to end up puking slugs."

Fnord laughed and clapped him on the back. "I'd expect no less, especially from you, Harry. G'night!" He called out cheerily as he left them.

"Oi, what's that supposed to mean?" Harry called after him jokingly. Still grinning, he turned back to his female counterparts. The grin disappeared from his face when he saw Hermione's expression.

"So, Mr. Potter, care to explain what he meant by you 'emerging from ritual flames'?"

A half an hour later, after explanations and forgiveness had been given to those who needed it, the trio went to their favorite hangout, namely, the library. All three of them were still searching for references to screech-like languages. They had discussed it in depth and come to the conclusion that it was probably a magical creature speaking, but they still couldn't discern what kind of creature.

Surprisingly enough, it had been Hermione who had given in to frustration first. She shut her book with a huff and practically growled. "Why can't we find a reference to this? For goodness' sake, this is a library, why isn't there any sort of search tool, or book of contents to help students find what they need?"

Harry blinked at her in shock. "That's actually a very good point, why isn't there something like that? After all, this is a magic school, there should be a way for students to find what they need much more quickly."

"And it's been this way for the entire time we've been at Hogwarts! The main reason that completing assignments takes so long is we can't find the proper search materials.

It was then that Luna decided to put in her two cents. "While that is a legitimate point, why don't we just ask Madam Pince?"

"This library is far too extensive for one librarian to manage, and students are always moving things around, putting them in the wrong places and making it even harder for us to find proper reference materials." Hermione huffed, looking indignant at the fact that people were doing such things to books.

Harry's eyes widened and he slammed his hand down on the table. "Accio!" Hermione and Luna just stared at him. "That's what we've been missing- that's how we can locate things."

"Of course, how could we have been so oblivious?" Hermione asked in shock at the simple solution.

"Well, you see Hermione, we've all been very preoccupied and-"

"That was a rhetorical question, Luna."

"So?"

"That means you aren't supposed to answer."

"Well, that's very silly. Why ask a question if you don't want an answer?"

"Never mind that, let's summon the book, shall we?" Harry interjected, amused at the girls' antics. When he recieved two nods, he continued. "Alright, then. Should I just say accio, er, all references to languages?" He asked.

"No," Hermione said thoughtfully, "That's too vague. Try 'Accio one good magical language reference'."

Harry repeated the words just as she had said them, and a book came zooming towards them... without slowing down.

"Luna, look out!" Hermione cried as the book came flying at her. She pushed the younger girl out of the way, knocking both of them to the ground in the process. "Are you all right?" Hermione asked from on top of the blonde, completely oblivious to the compromising position she had fallen into.

"Quite, thank you." Luna responded primly, completely ignoring the fact that Hermione was practically straddling her.

Harry, who had been successfully imitating a tomato for the last minute or so, tore his eyes away from the sight. "Hermione?" He muttered.

"Yes- oh!" Hermione's eyes widened as she realized what it looked like she was doing. She scrambled off of Luna's lap and hurriedly held out a hand to help the slightly squished girl up. "Sorry about that," She muttered, blushing.

"Oh, that's perfectly alright. Thank you for saving me." Luna smiled dreamily and pecked Hermione on the cheek. Hermione proceeded to blush even harder.

It was at that moment that Madam Pince chose to arrive. "What was that commotion about? Were you practicing magic in this library?" She glared at them, practically bristling.

Hermione's eyes widened. "Oh, I'm so sorry Madam Pince! We were studying for the second task when I tripped over my chair as I was sitting down and I fell on Luna."

Pince's eyes softened ever so slightly as she looked at one of her favorite students. "Very well, Miss Granger. I trust that this will not happen again?" She said sternly as she raised her eyebrows.

"Yes ma'am." The teenagers chorused.

"Good." The strict librarian nodded. "Now clean up this mess!" She commanded as she strode away. The three teens were quick to do as she instructed, and within 5 minutes the table and its' surrounding area showed no trace of the spilt ink bottles and crumpled parchment that had decorated it after Hermione's bout of gracefulness.

Harry cleared his throat, still blushing slightly."Um, so, we have the book now, maybe we should...?"

"Oh, yeah, um, sounds good." Hermione stuttered as she recalled the cause of the whole mess.

Luna looked between her friends and smiled thoughtfully. Oh yes, this would work quite nicely.
