“Where did you go off to? Draco asked as i entered the common room, he didn’t even look up from his potions book.
-I walked back with Fred, his head shot up and i noticed i had made a big mistake: i still had the Gryffindor scarf wound tight around my neck. Draco shot up, ripped the scarf off and threw it on the floor.
–What is this? he hissed.
-I-i was cold, so Fred lent me his scarf, i must have forgotten i had it on.
-Yes, apparently you did.”
In Draco style, the boy stormed off.
“I better get this scarf back to it’s owner before Draco kills him” i thought, and exited the common room.
I had no idea where the Gryffindor common room was so i had to ask twice for directions.
I finally got there, half an hour later, but then realised how awkward this was and i didn’t even know the password. I hesistated, then knocked on the painting.
“Ow, the Fat Lady cried.
-Oh stop, you can’t be hurt.
-My feelings can!”
I ignored her and knocked again. A first year i’m guessing answered:
“Um your in the wrong side of the castle, this is the Gryffindor common room, the boy said in a scared voice.
-Ow really? I didn’t know! i exclaimed my voice high with sarcasm. Just go get Fred Weasley”, i said my voice going back to normal, my eyes going serious. The boy slammed the painting in my face as he ran back into the room .
A few minutes later George came out. He leaned against the wall:
“Alright, Iera? he said with a smirk.
-Where’s Fred? i asked.
-Well, he’s having a nervous breakdown because you came knocking at our door out of nowhere.”
I unsuccessfully tried to hide a smile.
“You got a little blush going on there, Iera.
-Oh stop it.”
Suddenly, Fred appeared in the entrance.
“Sorry! I was just…doing some stuff, he said, out of breath.
-Yeah like changing your whole outfit, brushing our teeth combing your-
-Shut up George! You know that isn’t true!
-You know it is, the other Weasley twin answered and skipped back into the common room.
-So, what do you want to talk about?
-Well, um, want to go for a walk?
-Yeah ok, let me go get my cloak.” he answered. He disapeared into the common room and came back out, a minute later with his cloak wrapped around him and stepped out of the entrance.
We went across the grounds, to the lake.
“Have you asked Angelina about Hogsmead? i asked.
-Yeah she said she would love to come.
-Great! It’s going to be so fun!
-It will be! I promise.
-If you say so.
-Um, i forgot to give you your scarf back earlier, i said, starting to take it off.
-Keep it on till we go back inside-you’ll get cold otherwise, i wound it back aroud my neck.
-For being nice to a Slytherin.
-And why wouldn’t i be?
-Come on. Everyone hates us. Everyone thinks we’re all just so mean and obnoxious when we aren’t! Really!
-No you don’t! Even Draco’s nice! You just can’t see it. He is one of the nicest people i’ve ever met. He’s just mean because everybody treats him badly.
-I belive you.
-I belive you.
-A bit. No, a lot.
-You’re not the only one. I can’t belive i just said that.”
