Sorry, for the really bad summary!!! Hope you like this chapter. Please review!!! Thanks for the reviews!!! Thanks for reading!!!

We had dropped Ginny, Harry, Hermione and Ron at the entrance and went in search of a parking space. I looked over at him, “Thanks.”

He looked at me questioningly, “Why?”

I smiled, “Coming tonight.”

He chuckled, “If I hadn’t come tonight, by tomorrow everyone at school would’ve known about us.” He then took my chin in his hand. “It’s hard to stay away from you.”

I grinned at him, “Really?” And then he kissed me, as if to prove his point.

Sometime later, we finally made our way into Red’s. “Bella! Over here!” I turned to see Ginny waving us over, she was already seating with Harry, Katie and Neville. Draco, took my hand and started walking towards them.

I stopped him, “You sure?” He simply smiled, nodded and went on walking. When we reached the table Katie and Neville were surprised to see Chris, but then Katie said, “It was hard to imagine you two apart for too long.” He simply smiled in response and sat next to Ginny and pulled me into a chair beside him. “Where’s Hermione and Ron?” He asked.

Ginny shrugged, “I thought they were with you.”

I shook my head no.

Harry started to look around and saw them dancing. “I think Hermione is trying to get Ron to dance.” He then announced laughing.

We all turned to look at them and it was truly a comedy. It was a fast song, Hermione was moving to its beat, all right, but Ron… well that was a different story. Draco took my hand and motioned towards the dance floor. I laughed and nodded. “Let’s show them how it’s done.” He said laughing as we made our way to where they stood.


Sometime later, we had taken the Rover to the student lot and were seating on Hogwarts’ grounds looking up at the sky and talking non sense. My head was resting on Draco’s chest he was saying something to Hermione about some constellation or another and I started to feel sleepy so I closed my eyes.

All of the sudden I was standing at a muggle mall. I remembered it. It was the one that my mother loved. Indeed it was, there stood the store where my mother would buy her soaps and lotions, and the store where we would buy candy. I started to look around and suddenly noticed that everything stood exactly like it had that day. I turned abruptly towards the interior garden where we had been sitting and there she was, playing with me. I could see Hannah in the background talking on her on a pay phone. I stared at my mother she was smiling; I’d forgotten how pretty she was.

Then all of the sudden I saw a light from the corner of my eye. I knew what would happen and started to scream for her to move away. But, she couldn’t hear me. I started to run towards her, but I was too late. I could see her body lying lifeless. And I could see myself trying to wake her.

I looked back to where the light had come from and all I could see was a tall woman with long blonde hair and all dressed in black. I tried to go after her, but my feet wouldn’t move. I turned back to where my mother laid and saw a man come up to us. He took me in his arms and asked me if I knew my daddy’s phone number. I nodded and he told the lady with him to call.

I turned around looking for Hannah, where was she? She was her best friend, she must have seen. But, she was nowhere to be seen. Nowhere!

I then heard someone call my name. It was faint and distant, but it was getting more desperate by the second. So I started walking towards it.

And then I woke up. Draco was hugging me and I could see that everyone looked worried. He pushed me back, “What the hell happened to you?”

I shook his hands and ran my hands through my hair, “Nothing, I’m ok.”

That seemed to have made him angrier. “Ok? You were out for two hours! We were ready to take you to McGonagall’s.”

I turned to the others who were nodding in confirmation. Then Harry asked, “What happened?”

I looked at him and then back at Draco, “I dreamt that I was … I was back at the day of my mother’s death.” I could feel the tears starting to tumble down my cheek. And that was when I felt it. The same chilling presence that I had felt at Wiltshire. I looked up at Draco, “We have to go.” He raised his eyebrow, “Now.” I said.

Ginny started to ask, when all of the sudden I saw something that moved towards the clearing. I looked at Draco, “Whatever was in the house, it’s here. I can feel it. And I just saw something move. There.” I pointed to the edge of the clearing. Draco looked towards it and he must have seen something too, because he started to scream for everyone to make a run for Hogwarts.
