Katalina is daughter of Bellatrix. Her mother gave her up for adoption as soon as she was born. All her adoptive parents were either abusive or they didn't care. She was constantly running from away. She was accepted into Hogwarts and that became her home. What will happen when people discover who she really is?


8. Friday

Katalina's POV

        The rest of the week went by normally. The twins were constantly nagging us to turn other teachers' clothes into frilly pink tutus, Jax was telling us off every three seconds, and Draco was bugging me about my family full of murderers. So yeah a perfectly normal week. Then again I go to a magic school full of witches and wizards, so this is probably as normal as my life will get.
        On Friday morning Jax, Cora, and I were heading down to breakfast in the Great Hall. Cora was practically jumping up and down with excitement. "Calm down Cora," I mutter, "Someone might suspect something."
        "Who cares?!" She said giddily hopping to the Gryffindor table. "I can't wait for potions!"
        Sure enough we did get weird looks. Apparently all the Gryffindors hated potions because now they were all looking at us as if we had grown three heads. 
        "Shut up Cora," said Jax glancing around nervously. "You don't need another detention."
        "McGonagall's detention wasn't that bad actually," I said recalling our first day of Transfiguration. "She just made us right lines."
        "So we hear you guys can't wait for Snape's class right?" Says a voice behind me making me jump. I turn around and see Harry Potter and Ron Weasley.
        "Yep we heard it's gonna be a blast," said Cora winking at me. I smirk. Harry and Ron both look confused, but they shrug it off.
        "We haven't properly met before," says Harry sticking out his hand. "I'm Harry Potter and this is Ron, Ron Weasley."
        I shake it, "I'm Katalina Cadwell." I gesture to my friends, "And these are Jax and Cora."
        "Nice to meet you," said Harry smiling. "Mind if we join you?"
        "Go ahead," I say. Harry sits down on my right and Ron to his right. To my left, Cora is already piling up her plate with food. In front of me, Jax is eating like a civilized person and Ron, like Cora, is stuffing his face with food. We spend the rest of breakfast talking about our family. I didn't really tell Harry and Ron about my real family. I just told them about life with my foster family, which wasn't much better. Jax, Cora, and I start heading to potions early, leaving Harry and Ron behind in the Great Hall.
        The minute we're out of earshot Jax asks, "Why didn't you tell them what you told us?"
        I shrug. For some reason I had the feeling I didn't quite trust them yet. "I need to get to know them better."
        Cora skips ahead of us, "Come on guys! I don't wanna get there late!"
        Jax and I laugh, "Never thought I'd see the day Cora Gold would be excited for class," I say as we head towards the dungeons. Cora sticks her tongue out at us runs down the steps to the dungeons. The Slytherins were already there, laughing amongst each other.
        Harry and Ron arrive shortly after us looking apprehensive. I chose a seat next to Cora and in front of Jax. Snape started with the role call. When he reached Harry's name he stopped, "Ah yes, Harry Potter. Our new celebrity." Draco and his friends sniggered. I shot Draco a glare telling him to shut up.
        I zoned out Snape's introductory speech figuring Jax will probably tell me later anyways. I snapped back into attention when Snape started questioning Harry. 
        "Potter!" Snape said suddenly. "What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?"
        Powdered root to an infusion of what? How can he possibly expect us to know this. A bushy haired girl's hand shot in the air. Snape obviously, being a git, ignored it.
        "I don't know sir," said Harry.
        Snape sneered, "Tut, tut -- fame clearly isn't everything. Let's try again. Potter, where would you look if I told you to find me a bezoar?"
        Bushy girl looked like she was trying to touch the ceiling. Draco two buffoons sitting next to him were shaking with laughter. I glare at them again. 
        "I don't know sir," said Harry.
        "Thought you wouldn't open a book before coming, eh Potter?"
        "What is  the difference, Potter, between monkshood and wolfsbane?" Bushy girl stands up her hand stretching towards the ceiling.
        "I don't know," said Harry quietly. "I think Hermione does, though, why don't you try her?" I laughed along with some Gryffindors.
        "Sit down," he snapped at Hermione. "For your information, Potter, asphodel and wormwood make a sleeping potion so powerful it is known as the Draught of Living Death. A bezoar is a stone taken from the stomach of a goat and it will save you from most poisons. As for monkshood and wolfsbane, they are the same plant, which also goes by the name of aconite. Well? Why aren't you all copying that down?"
        I smirk, time to activate the prank. "Why thank you professor. That was very illuminating." As soon as the word leaves my mouth, Snape's clothes turn into a pink sparkly tutu((A/N it's big enough to fit Snape though.)) The room exploded into a bunch of sparkles.
        Snape screamed in rage. The class couldn't contain their laughter. Even the Slytherins were rolling on the floor laughing. He stormed into his office to change, screaming even more when he saw his office was pink too. He changed into a black robe and came stomping back into class. "SILENCE!!" He yelled. Everyone stopped laughing immediately. "If I find whoever is responsible, I will make sure they'll be expelled." With that threat, I dismissed us early so he could clean up his classroom. 
        There was a mad rush for the door. As soon as we were well away from the raging Snape, we sank to the ground laughing. The Weasley twins appeared above us. "I heard Operation Sparkles went well," said Fred smirking.
        "I think the whole school heard it," choked out Cora laughing.
        "Very true," said George.
        "Now what'd you say to activate it?" Asked Fred.
        "Why thank you Professor," said Jax imitating my voice, very poorly might I add. "That was very illuminating."
        "I do not sound like that," I said scowling at him.
        "Yes you do," chorused the twins. I glare at them too.
        "Anyway," said Cora wiping tears from her eyes. "I hope other people set off Operation Sparkles in the other classes too."
