Tempest sat in class taking her final exam for Poisons class. She knew all this, she didn't have to study, but what bothered her the most was the fact that her thoughts kept drifting. She looked at her cousin, already done with his test. Her mother graciously agreed to taking him in without question. He looked up and smiled at her, and for what Tempest thought was the first time they meet, a smile full of pure joy.

She put down her quill and looked around. Everything was eerily quiet, and that allowed Tempest to think for a bit. She looked down at the name at the top of her exam. It was hers and hers alone. Tempest tapped her glass dagger on the table and took it from her wrist band that the Lady of the Lake had given to her. She had told her that the wrist band would hold the dagger unless Tempest sought for it.

She looked around the room and stood up from her seat. Master Vlad looked at her and she smiled as she left the room. It was eight o'clock in the morning. She walked along the grounds and ran to the forest and straight to the pond. The trees no longer harmed her as she touched them. She sat down at the edge of the crystal clear pond and looked at her reflection.

"I am Tempest. That is my name and mine alone."

"A little possessive don't you think," said a sudden voice. Tempest turned around and smiled in shock.

"Draco!" She ran to him and hugged him tightly. "How did you get here?"

"Well I asked your Headmistress, and she arranged it."

"Well I'm glad you're here. Now come on sit down."

They sat for a while and talking about what had transpired since her last visit. He told her how everyone thought that Harry Potter was the heir of Slytherin and how Voldemort was the culprit controlling Ginny Weasly trough a book. She kept her smile hidden and looked around. The place was peaceful as she told him about what had happened with her. She never mentioned her name but when Draco asked she gave him a different name.



"I know."

She smiled to herself in a secretive fashion. He just smiled back unknowingly and kissed her forehead.

The day past very quickly and he had to leave. She sat in the Common room and looked over her notes of the year. Suddenly someone snatched them up from her hands and sat next to her.

"You do recall promising to tell me what you were up to right?" said Gorx.

"Of course," she said snatching them back.

"Good. Now tell me. The Common room's empty, we can virtually do anything we want." He flashed her a devious smile and leaned back.

"I think I'll just tell you everything I've been up to," she said knowingly.

"Suit yourself."

She smiled and started at the beginning. When her sword was stolen. How she met Zoltron and how she met with the Lady of the Lake and learned about her sister. And like withe Draco, she told the honest truth not hiding anything except her name. She have Gorx the same name she had given Draco and his reaction was no different than Draco's.

He left her alone to go eat dinner and she said goodnight, preparing to go to sleep.

On her bed, Zoltron sat perched on her bed in his cat form.

"Honestly, you strike me as an animagus."

He looked at her and hissed. He turned back into himself and glared at her. Every nine moon cycles, he had no control. All other days he did.

"You are very funny."

"I like to think so." She smiled and snuggled into bed.

"You're going to bed already?" he asked.

"I've had a very difficult year than to you," she said jokingly.

"How many times do I have to say I'm sorry."

"No longer, I just take pleasure in reminding you."

"I'm going to dinner."

"All right, goodnight then."

"Goodnight Zephyr."

She closed her eyes and something flashed before her eyes. She jerked them open and looked around. The scene was clouded and blurred and she closed her eyes again, trying to see it again, but nothing happened. She wen to be and looked outside the window at the moon.

"You are a mis-named and unnamed woman. Tempest is mine and mine alone Your Majesty." She smiled to herself and went to bed. "Excaliber is mine again."
