Chapter 25 Title: Partners Part 1

Hey everyone! Sorry I wanted to get this chapter out sooner but I had to go to a funeral out of town. But now I’m back for two whole weeks! And by then all of the chapters should be up! Thanks everyone who reviewed last chapter!

The rest of the day Anna was in a terrible mood. What was Snape playing at? Didn’t he know that Draco was one of the ones responsible for her parents’ death? Didn’t he realize she would rather be partnered with almost anyone besides him?

“Hey, Anna, it’ll be alright. Just ignore him. Don’t listen to anything he has to say. Ignore him sweetie.” Hermione said during dinner as Anna was stabbing her mashed potatoes with her fork over and over again. Ron was getting tired of hearing her fork hitting her plate over and over. Clink Clink Clink Clink Clink . Ron then reached around Hermione and pulled the fork out of her hand slamming it down onto the table.
“Anna,” he said. “Attacking your food is going to do nothing, and it’s really annoying.” He said.

”What crawled up his arse?” Anna muttered making Harry laugh.
Anna looked up at him and grinned as she looked in his bright green eyes that were sparkling. Anna tried to ignore the butterflies she was getting in her stomach from looking into his eyes. “Damn, what’s wrong with me?” she asked herself looking away from him. “This is not the time to be falling for him again. I don’t need a boyfriend right now; I’ve got enough problems as it is.”

After dinner, the four friends went back up to the Common Room and worked on their homework together by the fire in silence. Anna couldn’t really concentrate though; she was dreading what was going to come in a couple of hours.

Just after they started working, Ron had to leave to go and work on his potion. Anna silently cursed him because he wasn’t paired with a Slytherin. He was paired with Seamus so it wouldn’t be bad at all for him. Anna finally managed to concentrate on her homework for awhile. She completed her Transfiguration essay and was only left with Charms. She had just started her Charms when Hermione left the Common Room to head down for her Potions meeting. About five minutes later, Ron and Seamus came back together laughing and talking about Quidditch.

“How was it?” Harry asked him as he sat down.

“Not bad, but then I wasn’t stuck in a room alone with a Slytherin and Snape. The potion’s a bit difficult though. I saw Hermione on my way back here. It was quite amusing watching her walk down the hallway muttering evil things about Pansy.”

Harry and Anna both laughed. “Uhh… I do NOT want to go through with this. And it’s not like tonight is the only night. Four weeks of this hell. Was Snape there?” Anna asked suddenly.

“For the most part,” Ron said. “Some times he’d leave the room for about 10 minutes, but not for that long.”

“Good, at least I won’t be completely alone with Draco…” Anna said. Harry and Ron went back to working on their homework, but Anna had given up on trying to do her Charms essay. Every few minutes, Anna would check her watch. She had finally become so nervous that her legs had involuntarily started to shake. At about 9:20, Anna stood up to make her way down to the dungeons.

“Hey, Anne, if you want I can go to my time a bit early to make sure nothing bad happens or anything because I’ve got the time right after you.” Harry offered when he saw how nervous she looked. Anna nodded even though she had no idea what he had just said. She walked away from Harry and Ron with out even saying goodbye.

Anna made her way out of the Common Room and walked down several flights of stairs making her way towards the dungeons. Anna had already passed Hermione who was heading back up to the Gryffindor Common Room, but she didn’t notice her because she was too deep into her own thoughts. Anna walked slowly down the last flight of stairs that led to the dungeons. She reached the Potions classroom and took a deep breath before opening the door and walking in.

Anna looked around and saw Draco already sitting down. Snape was sitting at his desk waiting for her it seemed. “So nice of you to make it, Miss Jameson.” He said. “Now I would advise you to take that seat next to young Mr. Malfoy right there because the two of you will be sharing ingredients and it makes more sense this way.”

Anna stood there glaring at him. “That little git!” She thought to herself. “First he makes me share my time with Draco and now he’s telling me that I have to sit next to him?? Things can NOT get any worse than this.”

“Miss Jameson, do you intend on standing there all night glaring at me, or do you intend on starting your Potions assignment for the night?” Snape said in his deadly evil voice. Anna rolled her eyes at her Professor and walked over to the seat next to Draco. She caught his eye and he smiled at her. Anna pulled her chair as far away from him as she could before sitting down.

“Thank you, Miss Jameson, for finally cooperating. Now if the two of you will excuse me, I have a very important meeting with Dumbledore and I will not be here to supervise you. I will return, however, in about forty five minutes to an hour which is when you should be finishing up with tonight’s assignment. You may leave as soon as you have finished and put away your potion. The assignment is on the board. Good luck to you both.” Snape said and he stood up and walked briskly out the door.

Anna groaned and thought, “Great, just when I thought this couldn’t get any worse; it does.” Anna stood up and made her way to the cabinets where her potion was being stored. Draco quickly stood up and followed her to get his potion as well. Anna crouched down to get her potion off of the bottom shelve. When she turned around she almost turned straight into Draco who was standing dangerously close behind her.

“Get out of my way, Malfoy.” She spat. He moved out of the way and she made her way back to her seat. She quickly wrote down the assignment and double checked it to make sure she had written everything down correctly. Draco came back and sat next to her.

“Look, Anna…” he began.

“Malfoy, being stuck in this room alone with you is hell enough for me. Please don’t make it worse by talking to me.” Anna said as she measured her ingredients.

“I really do need to talk to you, though.” He said in an almost pleading voice. Anna looked over at him and saw an upset look on his face. “Please let me talk to you.”
