"I don't think we should be in the Restricted Section of the library", Hermoine said. She had read a lot of stories about curses that affected wizards and witches; she knew what spells to practice with. "Do you have to read all of the books?", Ron asked her. "do, Ron. Besides, learning and reading is important; there's the tests we have to pass before the end of the year", she said. Suddenly they saw Draco smirking at them. "Well, Potter. It seems you've gotten yourself into trouble...again", he said mysteriously. "What do you mean, Draco?", Harry asked. "Look!", Draco insisted. Harry stared at the Daily Prophet article about him. HARRY POTTER STRUGGLES AT HOGWARTS. It was written by Barnabas Cuffe, Editor-In-Chief. "According to reports, eleven year old Harry Potter is a first year student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He has shown enough magical powers to impress Professor Albus Dumbledore; he is the son of James and Lily Potter, two wizards who were attacked by You-Know-Who, who gave him the famous scar on his forehead. How did the wizard survive the attack has astounded magicians, witches, and warlocks over a decade. It is said that Potter frequents giant Rubeus Hagrid's cabin for advice, especially concerning dangerous creatures in the Forbidden Forest...". Harry sighed. "I never went there", he said. "Don't count your blessings, Potter. Sooner or later you'll come unstuck. And when you do, I'll make sure you won't be the favourite wizard of Professor Dumbledore". Malfoy, Goyle, and Crabbe, grinned maliciously. Then they walked towards the freezing dungeons for Potions class with Professor Snape.


"It seems to me that Potter is scared of his own shadows", Draco said. Harry aimed his wand at Draco. "I'm not scared of you, Draco. Besides, you're scared of Lord Voldemort". Everyone in the class gasped. "Potter, Draco, you'll settle your fight after class. Ten points off Gryffindor House and Slytherin House for interrupting everyone's time in the dungeon. Now, go to Chapter Three of Ancient curses across London. Hurry before I change my mind and force all of you to go into the Forbidden Forest at Midnight". Hermoine raised her right hand. "Professor Snape, first year's aren't allowed inside there...", she uttered. "Detention Miss Granger", Snape shouted. She put her wand down, then cried. She focused her energy on the rest of the class, before she gathered her lost strength and read the book alone.
