Chapter 8: Dirty Sheets

When I woke up, it was still very dark and I didn’t feel too good. Moments after opening my eyes, I looked down to my sheets, blinked, and saw last nights supper on top of them. I could even see the peas and carrots. My sudden vomiting seemed to wake up Niki. As soon as she noticed what had happened, she hopped out of bed and sat next to mine, holding my hair back as more food came spewing out of my mouth. When it had seemed that it had been over, she asked, “Are you ok? What happened?” in a worried tone.

I looked at her and opened my mouth to answer, but quickly looked back down as even more food came out, fallowed by some red liquid that we instantly knew was blood. “We have to get you to Madam Pomfrey.” She said, trying to help me to my feet.

I was too weak to walk. All of the vomit took out my nutrients and strength. After stumbling a few times I sat back on my bed. “I can’t get up, Niki.” I whispered. One of the other girls was up and just watching in horror, and every time I puked, she would shield her eyes.

Niki looked over at Allison. “Make sure Lily is ok. I am going to get one or two of the boys.” She commanded. Allison turned pale. She didn’t want to be anywhere near the puke puddle. I don’t see why she was disgusted. After all, I was the one doing the job on top of myself. I shook my head and held up my hand to indicate that she didn’t have to. Nodding, Allison just staid where she was.

In the boy’s dormitory, Niki flipped on the lights. Seeing a girl in there at that hour, most of them covered themselves and started yelling at her to go away and asking her what the hell she was doing in there. She just rolled her eyes and walked over to Remus. “Get up. Lily is sick. She was vomiting her guts out and then started puking up blood! She is too weak to even stand.”

Remus wore a horrified look. “I can’t carry her though. I tried caring her from the couch to her dorm before you two put that spell on the stairs, and I barely got to the steps.”

James was worried too. “I’ll do it.” Niki nodded, and the three of them left the boys dorm. Niki muttered a counter curse for the steps so the boys could retrieve Lily.

At the sight of James, my eyes got wide and I tried to get up myself to prove I could. “Never mind. I can do this myself. I don’t need him.”

I stumbled. “Um, clearly, you do.” Remus said. Wearing a look of defeat, I allowed James to pick me up bridal style and carry me off to the hospital wing, followed by Remus and Niki.

When the four of us arrived, Madam Pomfrey was tending to a second year girl who had gotten hit in the head by a quaffle while playing quidditch with some friends in her year. She was giving the girl some potions because she was complaining all night about her head pains. “What are the four of you doing up at the ungodly hour of three in the morning?” she asked as James gingerly set me down on one of the beds.

“Thank you.” I whispered and offered a weak smile and clenched my stomach. Instantly I sat up and hurled all over a new set of bed sheets. This time, no food came out. Only blood.

“That.” Niki said, pointing to the pool of blood. Madam Pomfrey winced.

“Well, that can possibly be taken care of quite easily.” She said, walking over to the group. “Lily, can you speak?” I shook my head. “Ok, has your stomach been giving you any problems before tonight? Has it been hurting for a while?” I shook my head again. With that, she got up and started mixing some potions and handed me a cup. “Drink this.” It was blue and bubbling and it looked really thick. Cringing my nose, I took a gulp. It was disgusting! The weird potion was nauseatingly warm, but I had to finish the cup. Instantly I could feel it rush to my stomach and mend something. “stomensic tumetic.” Madam Pomfrey said, taking the try of potions back to the back room. “Here we can easily mend it. Out in the muggle world, it takes billions of dollars.” Then she turned to Niki, Remus, and James. “Now you three may leave. I shall be keeping Miss Evans over night and some of tomorrow.”

“But,” James started. “I just want to make sure she is ok.”

Madam Pomfrey shook her head. “It is late Mr. Potter. You may see her in the morning.” With that, she shooed them all away, and all of a sudden I felt a sweep of tiredness come over me. My eyes had shut and I had fallen into a deep sleep before my head had even fallen to the pillow.

A/N: ok, I know that this chapter is short, but I have been really busy lately. I have been trying to finish up the school year that is finally over and get ready for the next. Joy. So I am sorry for the extremely long wait, and for the very short chapter, but I have been under a lot of stress. Please leave a review! O_O
