A/N: Hey sorry it took so long to get chapter 3 out. I took a little break. Anyway here it is. Dear Diary,

     You would never guess what happened last night! HARRY KISSED ME!!!!!!! I know I can’t believe it! I’m so happy and excited and wowed. Oh, I hope he asks me out.
In other news, detention isn’t really that bad. Not with Harry around. It’s actually fun and the time passes by so quickly. We can’t talk, but I swear we have telepathic communication or something because we were always smiling and we had to keep from laughing the whole time. I can’t wait for tonight.
     Why hasn’t Harry asked me out yet? I mean aren’t you supposed to kiss after the guy asks you out? Or maybe Kitty’s right. Maybe I so have to ask him out. I don’t know. If he doesn’t ask me out by tomorrow night, I’ll ask him. Between you and me diary, I hope he asks me out. I don’t have enough courage to.
     My friends are probably going to interrogate me about last night’s detention and then I’ll have to tell them everything. Only for the fact that I can’t tell the story without leaving anything out. I guess you could say that I can be a perfectionist sometimes. Anyway, G2G!

Love Ya,

Jane put up her diary and headed down to breakfast. When she got there, she was immediately pounded with questions from her curious friends. Harry was nowhere to be found.

“How was detention last night?”

“Did Snape pound you with a work load?”

“What time did you get in?”

“Guys, guys stop!!!! One question at a time please! Detention was fine. Snape made us clean his whole room, and we got in last night at 2. There are you happy now?”

At that moment Harry rushed in the Great Hall and sat down next to Jane. “Hey guys, sorry I’m late. I just woke up about five minutes ago. We got in late.”

“We know,” Ron said, “she told us.”

“So what exactly did you half to do?” Hermione asked.

“Rearrange the ingredients cupboard and put the ingredients in alphabetical order, wipe down the desks, sweep and mop, and a couple other things. And we couldn’t talk.” Jane replied.

“Bloody Hell!” Neville burst out. “That’s more than what he had me do whenever I got detention!”

“Tell us about it,” Harry said.

So all during breakfast they talked about their detentions with Snape. And Neville was right nobody had half the work Harry and Jane had. The time flew by fast. Before they knew it, it was time to go to class. They rushed up to their dorms and got their school books, parchments, ink, and quills. Luckily they made it to class on time.

Gryffindors had Transfiguration first with Slytherin. That was never any fun. Especially when Draco kept sending insulting notes and always cracked jokes about how Ron could never get any spells right. But today was different. Jane sat next to Harry today instead of Hermione and Ron sat with Hermione instead of Harry. As Jane was listening to Professor McGonagall explain how animagus’ came about, a bird shaped creature landed on Jane’s desk. She picked it up and noticed it was a piece of paper, most likely a note from Draco saying that something was wrong or disgusting about her. She unfolded it and read what was scribbled on the paper.


Your eyes are like stars against the night sky. Your smile makes my heart stop. Your hair is silk. Your beauty is too great to be put into words. I love everything about you. Meet me tonight up in the astronomy tower, 9:00.


P.S. Don’t worry about detention tonight. Professor Snape is letting you off. 

Jane reread the note several times. She couldn’t believe what she was reading. She looked over at Draco. He was staring at her. His eyes full of longing. He gave her an irresistible crooked smile and winked. Jane quickly looked down at her book.

“…Miss Peters what spell is that?” Professor McGonagall asked.

“Excuse me Professor but could you repeat the question I couldn’t get it all.”

“Of course, I asked what spell we use to transform a human into an animal.”

“Well…there isn’t really a spell. You have to become an animagus first. And I’m not sure exactly what the spell or technique is to do that.”

“Miss Peters it would help if you paid attention a little more in class.”

Jane looked down at her book and felt blood rising to her cheeks. She had been completely unprepared. How embarrassing and humiliating it was not to know the answer to the question. If Draco hadn’t distracted her she would have been right on the money. When she looked up again she saw Harry looking at her confused. She mouthed that she’d tell him later. The rest of the day didn’t go well after that.

At dinner, while everyone was off chattering their own business, Harry started talking to Jane. “So what was wrong in Transfiguration today? You seemed shocked and upset about something.”

Uh-oh. What should she tell him? Should she tell him every detail and explain what Draco said? Or should she lie and say Draco made her mad because he said she was a disgusting whore as he usually did?

“Um…well Draco sent me one of his insulting notes today and I wasn’t expecting it. So it surprised me and distracted me.” Was that the best she could come up with?

“Oh…I thought it was something else. Just don’t let it get to you. If you do then he’ll keep doing it until he gets tired of it.”

“Yeah, I’ll try not to let my emotions get carried away.”

“We better get to detention. I don’t want to get into even more trouble.”

“I agree, let’s go.”

As Jane and Harry were walking down to the dungeons, Harry grabbed Jane’s hand. They smiled at each other and kept walking. And before they walked into the classroom, Harry gave Jane a peck on the cheek.

“Harry what are you doing?”

“Well I thought-” she cut him off with a kiss on the lips.

“From now on if you want to kiss me then kiss me.” They walked in and up to Snape’s desk. “Good evening Professor, what shall we be doing for you tonight?”

“Well Miss Peters, you’ll be helping me grade papers until 8:30. Apparently you have plans at nine. Potter you’ll be polishing all the cauldrons. Wands.” They handed over their wands and got to work. Harry kept passing confused looks to Jane. Why was she being let off early and what plans did she have? Who were they with? Why didn’t she tell him about them? Did any of this have to do with Draco’s note?

“Okay Miss Peters, you may go now. Potter you can go once you finish polishing,” Snape said. On her way out, Jane slipped Harry a note. He put it in his pocket and began polishing again. When Snape wasn’t looking he pulled it out.


Sorry about this. I don’t know what it’s about. Once I get everything straight, I’ll let you know everything. I’m really sorry and I hope you’re not mad at me.

Love, Jane 

He put it back up and finished his work.

Jane went back to Gryffindor tower and changed into a black V-neck tee and dark blue jeans. She redid her hair and put on her normal make up. What was this about? What was he trying to do? Was she going to get stood up? Why was she even making herself pretty? After she was done, she headed up to the astronomy tower.
