Andy wound her arm up and hit the bludger hurtling at her as hard as she could at the chaser on his way to the Gryffindor goal posts. The chaser didn’t even see it coming and was hit from behind with such force that it knocked the quaffle out from her hands and into the hands of the Gryffindors.

The Hufflepuff Chaser turned around and glared at Andy, though it was not really hatred, just an ‘I’ll-get-you-back-for-that’ stare. She smirked at his annoyed face as he turned to try and prevent another Gryffindor goal from happening.

Andy laughed at Tim’s back as he flew in the opposite direction. Teddy the Twitch’s voice carried over the loudspeakers and to her ears. “And another goal for the Gryffindor’s. Th-that makes it 90-10, in the Gryffindor favor. C’mon Hufflepuff! Wh-what happened to you?” A cough was heard from one of the professors sitting in the box with him.

Andy laughed again as she flew to the top of the pitch. One of the bludgers was no where in sight and so she figured it must have just been one of the rare rotten ones that will be let lose only to never come back again. The second one was not really being a threat to her team mates, but just seemed perfect to hit at the Hufflepuffs.

She saw one of the Hufflepuff beaters aiming to send the bludger towards the unstoppable Sirius who was flying back and forth in front of the posts. She was off in an instant and returned the ravenous ball back at the beater.

“Your welcome Black!” she yelled over her shoulder as she was off to circle the field, ready at a moments notice for help.

She heard a scream at the other end of the field and looked to see that one of the towers filled with students was swaying back and forth. There also seemed to be quite a few holes punctured right through it. Another was made as the bludger that had gone missing sore through it.

The students in the said box were scrambling to get out for fear that the whole thing might fall. ‘they are scared, even though they know that we can do magic.’ Andy rolled her eyes at the stupidity of the kids running.

She flew to the tower, ready to send the bludger either back out, or put it back in play. That came with no such luck though.

She came as it was preparing to fly back through the now torn apart stadium walls once again. She flew with such quick speed that she managed to get in front of it before it hit the wall. She hit it with the bat, and sent it back on to the field.

Andy turned around as another girl screamed from behind her as the tower swayed dangerously again. It was the wrong time to turn though, as the bludger was coming back for a second try to break through the wall.

This time, not only did it break through the tower wall, it basically broke through Andy first. She had turned back only a few quick seconds in which she didn’t have a chance to react to the ball flying at her. The wooden ball almost seemed to try to go through her, rather then bounce off, as they normally do. It pushed her back with such force that she only stopped when her leg caught on the tower wall, stopping her from being pushed any further by the ball.

As the ball continued to fly out into god-knows-where, Andy was left hanging by her ankle on the wall. She faintly heard a whistle before she fell limp into unconsciousness.


Tim was concentrating on scoring on Sirius, and that alone. He had been the one to score before, but all he wanted to do was just beat them so bad, that he pushed and pushed. The main reason he wanted to win was so he could rub it in Andy’s face. Not in a mean way, but Andy had been talking ever since they went to Hogsmeade about how Gryffindor was going to kill Hufflepuff.

Andy hit him in the back as he was trying to score. A move he probably should have expected because she was the best beater the school had ever seen and he was trying to score against her team.

He heard a scream coming from the Gryffindor’s side and looked over to see that the bludger he had noticed to go missing before was back and seemed to be taking a lot of anger or something on one of the towers. He saw a beater dressed in Gryffindor’s robes and knew that Andy had stepped in to help out and get the ball back into play.

So he went back to the game.

Then he heard another scream and he looked back over just in time to see Andy get completely blindsided by the bludger and sent absolutely flying along with it.

She got stuck on the wall and was hanging upside down. He heard Madame Hooch’s whistle blow as he rushed over to help her. Sirius was already getting her down from the wall and flying her to the ground.

He placed her gently on the ground as teachers and other players gathered around her. Sirius was kneeling next to her, worry clearly apparent in his face.

Professor Dumbledore was down with them in an instant and was already giving orders on what should be done. “Minerva, would you please help Mr. Black escort Miss Pierson to the Hospital Wing. Madame Hooch, will you please go and notify Argus and let him know of the situation and that he should come speak to me in a half hour about what needs to be done to repair the holes. And Mr. Collins,” he spoke, now directed at Tim. “I trust you will have no problem in rescheduling the match for a further date.”

Tim nodded his head as Dumbledore smiled warmly at him. “You can go with them if you would like Mr. Collins.”

“Thank you sir.” He said as he began in McGonagall and Sirius’ wake towards the school.


A girl screamed from behind Sirius and he turned as Andy was being forced into the wall of the stadium. He went as quickly as he could to her, just incase she fell. Its not like he cared that much about her, right? ‘Right.’ He told himself.

He grabbed a hold of her and almost fell off his broom trying to release her robes from a piece of wood that was broken in half. He heard Madame Pomfrey blow her whistle and he knew that the game would be postponed for them. He lowered her to the ground and laid her down, afraid he might hurt her more.

‘God this girl has been through way too much’

Dumbledore and McGonagall had arrived quickly and were telling orders.

“Minerva, would you please help Mr. Black escort Miss Pierson to the Hospital Wing.” Sirius didn’t need to hear any more and had her lifted back up in a moment and was following the Transfiguration teacher towards the school.

After a few moments he heard someone come running up behind them and he assumed it to be James, so he started talking. “Hey, what happened down-”he stopped as he turned to see Tim, that Hufflepuff Andy had become friends with coming up breathlessly behind them. “Oh, never mind.” He said coldly.

“Professor McGonagall, what happened with that bludger?” Tim asked, worry for Andy shown across his face.

“I’m not quite sure Mr. Collins, but we will do our best to figure out. Occasionally you will get a rotten one and it might not come back, but it will probably run out of magic in a short time. Why it was destroying our fields is a mystery to me.” She replied with a sigh. “This sport is so dangerous, someone getting hurt every week from it…” she mumbled as they were getting closer to the Hospital.

The opened the door and McGonagall pointed to the first bed and continued walking towards the matron’s office in the corner. Sirius laid Andy down on the bed gently and took a seat on the next bed over. Tim stayed standing.

“So what is going on between you two?” Sirius asked after a moment of silence.

“Nothing, why?”

“I don’t know, but you seem to be spending a lot of time together lately.”

“Yeah, I like her, she is really nice to talk to, not like a whole lot of others girls in this school. But we are just friends. She wouldn’t stop laughing at me when I started dating Hannah.” Tim laughed lightly at the thought.

“I’m sorry boys, but I’m going to need you to leave.” Madame Pomfrey said as she made her way over to the bed with a red vial in her hand.

“Its Ok Poppy, they can stay for a little bit. Miss Pierson might need them.” McGonagall said following her to the side of her bed.

“Alright then. Boys, I’m going to wake her, but if you are staying you will need to calm her because she is not going to be able to talk and should hardly be able to move. I need you to keep her calm, or else she will fight the potion and she might be permanently damaged.”

The two boys nodded as they got closer to the bed. Madame Pomfrey poured the liquid into her mouth and her eyes flew open instantly. She was looking up at the four people surrounding her bed and tried to say something to them, but found that she couldn’t.

She couldn’t speak. What was wrong with her? She tried to put her hands to her mouth to see if something was covering it, but she couldn’t move her arms. She tried moving anything, but nothing would work. What was wrong with her? She started panicking and trying as hard as she could to yell, move do something to show that she was alright.

Sirius saw her struggling and bent down closer to her. “Andy? Andy, you need to just focus. You have to calm down, or else Madame Pomfrey won’t be able to help you. Ok?” he put a hand on her shoulder and her initial reaction was to shake it off. She couldn’t do it though, and it stayed there.

After a while though, she didn’t even notice it. “Andy, you alright?” Tim asked from the other side. “I’m going to get you back for hitting me.” He said with a smile, and although she couldn’t smile, he saw her eyes look happier. She really was trying to smile.

“Alright, Miss Pierson? I have given this to you because 4 of your vertebrae were shattered in your fall. But don’t be alarmed, this potion is healing them right now, and I just need you to stay calm ok. It will be about five more minutes, and if it has worked then you will be able to fully move and talk.” Madame Pomfrey said.

“I think it is time for you boys to go.” McGonagall said, “Your job is done.”

They nodded, both knowing that when McGonagall decided on something, it was final. They stood and said goodbye to her. Sirius’ hand left her shoulder and it suddenly felt colder, but she just brushed the feeling away, just as she always did.


“Potter, I swear I can play Saturday!” Andy yelled for about the billionth time that day.

“No, I am not rescheduling until I know everyone is in full health, and according to Madame Pomfrey, you are not yet!” he yelled, as he had so much to her already.



“Sirius!” Black said from next to James at the table in the Great Hall. James chuckled lightly, but Andy just glared.

“You know what Black, you can just stay out of this. Its none of your business.” She said turning back to James.

“Excuse me? Do you really talk to the people who saved your life that way?” he said.

“For the last time, YOU DIDN’T SAVE MY LIFE! I saved yours if anything. I stopped that bludger from hitting our poor wittle keeper.” She said, the last in a baby voice. “and besides, you didn’t need to save me, because I was fairly secure hanging from that piece of wood.”

“Oh yeah, and how would you know? You were blacked out, remember?”

“Because Tim told me.”

“Oh yes, please forgive me, I forgot about your BOYFRIEND TIM-”

“He’s not my boyfriend! He is just my friend, and he is even dating Hannah. And you know what, I know you really want to go out with me, and you are just trying to convince yourself that Tim and I are dating and that’s the reason you can’t get me, but stop, its really pathetic.” Andy stood angrily from her seat, prepared to return to the Common Room when she remembered. “AND WE ARE PLAYING ON SATURDAY!” she yelled back at James, the half empty Hall hearing almost every word of their conversation.

Hannah Levy sat at her house table thinking the worst…


“Hey Hannah,” Tim said as he greeted his girlfriend with a kiss on the cheek in the halls. When she didn’t smile back at him, he wondered what was up. “Everything alright?”

“Um, not really actually.” She said looking away slightly. “What is going on between you and Andy?”

Tim laughed. “Me and Andy? Nothing, nothing at all. There could never really be anything between us. Hannah, Andy and I are just best friends. We’re like brother and sister.” He said, still smiling

“Well then I don’t understand why all of those Gryffindors would think that there was something between you.”

“All the Gryffindors? I bet it was Black and Potter, wasn’t it?” Hannah nodded her head. “I have no idea why they think we are dating, but it is not true, and don’t you listen to a word they say. They are just…stupid.”

Andy nodded her head sheepishly. Then she laughed slightly. “Stupid is the best word you can think to describe them?”

Tim grinned and hugged her, knowing she believed him.


“See, I told you I would play.” Andy gave a cheeky smile to James after the game on Saturday. The usual after-game party was being held in the Tower and the team was on their way up.

“Yes, well do you know the earful I am going to get from McGonagall on Monday for allowing you to play?”

“Well, since I can’t beat her up, like I had to do to you in order for you to let me play, your just going to have to deal with it.” Andy smiled back innocently to James.

“Thanks a lot.”

“No problem.”

“Hey, why the hostility between you two? We just won!” Sirius came up behind the two, slinging his arms around both of their shoulders. The hand that went to Andy’s other side was gripping an unmarked bottle, but she didn’t have to see the label to know what it was. She could smell it on his breath.

“We are not even to the party, and you are already working yourself to be a nasty drunk. You realize, at this rate, you are going to wake up tomorrow morning, not know what the hell happened the night before, or how you ended up in Peter’s bed…naked.” Andy said, a smirk on her face.

“NAKED?!” Sirius dropped the bottle, making it crash and spill all over the floor. “Wh- how did you know that?”

Andy looked at him with a slight smile. “Wait, that’s actually happened before?”

“NO!” he said looking scared. “No, but how did you know I was going to end up in Peter’s bed? Are you a Seer?!” he asked in slight awe, his words already slurring.

Andy knew he was getting to be drunk, and figured she’d have fun laughing at him. “Yeah! You didn’t know?! I’m a Seer and that’s how I’ve been able to avoid all of your pranks of the years, I can see them coming.”

“Wow, that’s a amazing! Tell me what I’m going to do tomorrow!” he said, stumbling forward to stand in front of her.

She closed her eyes and, resisting the urge to laugh, she waved her arms around and heard Sirius gasp. She was now having difficulty keeping her laugh in. “I see,” she put her hands to her forehead. She heard James, who had stopped with them snort. “I see James being run over by the Hypogriff tomorrow if he doesn’t shut his mouth.” She opened on eye and smirked at him when he rolled his eyes.

“James, you better be quiet. I cant lose my best friend at such a young age!” Sirius yelled.

Andy couldn’t hold it in and burst out laughing.

“What? What’s so funny?” Sirius asked, as seriously as he could in his current state.

“Nothing, its just a side-effect of having my abilities.” She said through laughs

“Oh wow, that must stink.” At this James burst out laughing. “O my gosh! Its contagious!” Sirius said. “I don’t want it!” and he started running down the hall.

He turned back around though and repaired the bottle, putting the Firewhiskey back in it as well and taking a long drink from it before stumbling back down the hallway, away from Andy and James.

“Oh gosh, you might need to babysit that boy tonight…” Andy said looking at James after they controlled themselves.

He just rolled his eyes and they continued towards the Common Room.
