Tempest woke up on the ceiling next to Nila. She looked at Nila who was wide awake. She was standing upside down in front of the mirror.

"Finally you're awake. You know I don't really think this will ever get boring."

"Glad you think so. How long does this spell last?"

"Should be wearing off soon." There came a knock at the door. Nila and Tempest looked at the door then at each other.

“Who is it?”

“Who do you think it is?” Tempest rolled her eyes at the unmistakeable voice of Void.

“Don’t tell him I’m here,” whispered Nila, pulling her hair up to her, holding it close.

“Okay.” Tempest jumped down, landing gracefully on her feet. Nila crawled along the ceiling as Tempest opened the door.

“Where’s Nila?” he asked looking around.

"Obviously not with us."

"Good."

"Why good?"

"Because I need to talk to you and only you."

"About?"

"Your sister. Um, I don't think this relationship is working out and it's not the jokes, I don't mind the jokes."

"Then what is it?"

"I . . . I don't know. Whatever, forget I said anything okay. Let’s just see how it goes.” Suddenly Nila fell down on Void and he glared at her.

"Thank you for catching me Void." She laughed and he pushed her off him.

"Zephyr—” he growled.

"Sorry, besides, she won't say anything."

"Yeah. Remember, you're my best bud." She jumped on him and gave him a hug knocking him over. He smiled and Tempest noticed him move his hands closer to her.

"Get off me."

"Never. Zephyr, help me tackle him."

"Thanks but no thanks." Void winked at Tempest and used the distraction to tickle Nila. Nila grabbed his arms and pinned him down.

"Don't you have a boyfriend," asked Void no longer smiling.

"Zoltron? Naw, that was just a joke we played last night. Gotcha didn't we, besides, I'm not supposed to say anything but Hydra likes him."

"Hm, you know I think Zoltron likes her too," said Tempest remembering when they first met.

"I'm sorry am I interrupting something," came a sudden voice. The all looked at the doorway and there stood Edana with her hands on her hips and her face blaring in fury that made Tempest want to laugh.

"Well am I?"

"Actually, yeah you were," snickered Nila.

"Arg!" Edana stalked away and Void shoved Nila off him and ran after her.

"You know, I don't think your sister likes me," said Nila feigning sadness.

"I think you're right." They shared a look and burst out laughing.

"This is going to be a fun year."

"Well now you just jinxed it Nila," said Tempest laughing.

"Oh well."

"What are you two laughing about," said a voice. They both looked up at Divina. She was standing arrogantly with her hair braided.

"Nila was on top of Void and Edana is overreacting."

"You were on top of Void? Aren't you dating Zoltron?"

"No, it was just a joke and what does that have to do with anything?" Divina looked at Tempest.

"Nothing, just curious."

"Yeah right."

"Anyway, we should probably get our school supplies ready and start packing, we leave tomorrow remember?" Nila nodded and walked form the room but not before taking a look in the direction Void ran in.

"Do you think—”

"Let’s leave it Divina, it's not very good to meddle." She looked at Divina who just shrugged and walked off.

***

Void was avoiding them. Tempest could tell, and she was afraid she would have to sneak him into a bathroom or even follow him into one.

Tempest took the opportunity to talk to him as they page train as the new patrolled the train as the new prefects.

"You haven't been talking much to Nila and me."

"Edana."

"Oh come now, we're just friends."

He shook his head. "Nila."

"So what, she's just jealous of Nila?"

"Yes."

"Okay that's it, can you please stop talking to me in sentences that consist of only one word."

"She's jealous Zephyr, there's not much more to say. Happy now?"

"Is that why you were thinking of breaking up with her?"

He nodded. "She's been jealous ever since Nila made that scene in the Great Hall last year."

Tempest laughed and Void stared at her. "Sorry, that was funny."

"Look I missed you guys last year. Honestly, I don't want to be, I don't know, I just don't want to miss you when I'm right there with you everyday. Bloody hell that has to be the cheesiest thing I've ever said."

She laughed. "Yeah, it was." She grabbed him and kissed him hard on the lips. Before she knew what she was doing they, were all over each other. Her hands through her hair and his arms gripped tight around her waist. Finally she pulled away and smiled at him.

"What was that for?" asked Void.

"I do not know. Hm, I always thought you were charmingly cute. Don't worry though I don't think anymore of you than that and that you're my best friend, after all I still love Draco." She stopped in her tracks and pulled away from his as he smiled.

"Did you just say you loved him?"

"Oh my god."

"Have you told him?"

"No!! Oh my god, that's the first time I've ever even thought that!"

"Wow. So, what are you going to do about Panzy?"

"I don't know, maybe I'll give her up to Merwick." They looked at each other and laughed but then when the realization of what she said dawned on them, they slowly stopped.

"That's not really a good thing," remarked Void.

"No, it isn't." They looked at each other and laughed some more.

"You, know, you're a good kisser," said Tempest randomly.

"You too, now I know what Draco's always going on about. He talks about you a lot, even before. Since he was able to like you. Got annoying really."

"Wow, quite funny when you think about it." They laughed and someone joined in.

"Ha, ha, what’s so funny," said Nila walking up to them. Suddenly, out of no where Void pulled her close and kissed her tenderly on the lips as he wrapped his arms around her. He pulled away and Tempest laughed as she looked at Nila's frightened face.

“Who are you and what have you don't to Void Dermot? You know the cocky smart ass?" She smiled and tilted her head.

"I was showing my appreciation of you being my friend and shit like that. If it makes you feel any better Zephyr and I kissed too." He wasn't smiling when he noticed Nila's falter.

"Oh, okay then."

"I'm hungry, what about you two?"

"Yeah, I'm hungry." He looked down at Nila and shoved his hands in his pocket. "What's wrong with you?"

"Huh, oh tired, and a little dizzy."

He smiled. "You need food. Here, I'll carry you."

She looked and him shocked. "What? Wait, no—" But before she could finish he picked her up and she laughed. Tempest smiled and wrapped her arms around Void's shoulders and they began to walk.

"See, now this is what I call the good times."

"Yes, but how long will it last?" said Nila. They stopped walking and looked at each other.

"Nila, shut up or I'll kiss you again."

"Gross, fine, I'll shut up."

They walked on and walked into the dinning cart. Void put Nila down and knelt in front of her.

"What are you doing?"

"Piggy back ride. Just jump on already." Nila did just so and he straightened himself up.

"Hi. We'll get two packs of chocolate frogs, Bertie Bott Every Flavour Beans and liquorice wands," said Void.

"Fifty sickles please."

"Zephyr?"

"You owe me, plus interest."

"Understood." Tempest dug in her back pocket but before she could place her money on the table, someone else did.

"I'll take it," said Louis Morte. He smiled charmingly but Tempest ignored it.

"What do you want?"

"Nothing, just being . . . what’s the word?"

"Generous?"

"Yeah." He smiled and walked away. "Oh by the way, Astraea and I made House Prefects."

"So did Void and I." She smiled and picked up her food. Suddenly Louis came back and grabbed Tempest by the waist.

"You know, I always like you."

"Get off me."

"Louis!" Tempest grimaced at the screech of Astraea's voice.

"Bloody—”

"What the bloody hell is going on!?"

"Astraea—”

"What, because your boyfriend died you want mine?!" Tempest had had enough, she pushed Louis away and put the food down calmly before punching Astraea, knocking her to the ground.

"Louis, keep a better eye on your girlfriend." She grabbed the food and handed some to Nila to carry some.

"Wow Zephyr, I don't think I've ever seen you so mad before."

"Take it back Nila," said Void.

"Why . . . oh yeah, I forgot about that."

"How can you forget, I almost beat the crap about you last year."

"Yeah, I know."

"Hey toss me a bean Nila," asked Void.

"'Kay here." She tossed him one and he quickly spit it out.

"Gross that was vomit flavor."

"Oh sorry. Here try this one." She popped another one into his mouth. "Better?"

"Much, I love strawberry kiwi."

"I think we all do," commented Tempest.

"Hey, I think I'm better now Void, can you put me down now?"

"Yeah sure." He put her down and she kissed him on the cheek.

"My turn to show you my appreciation."

"VOID!"

"Crap," they said in unison before turned around. Edana stood with her face contorted in anger.

"Vayne—"

"Shut up!" She turned and stalked away. Doors began to open and students looked out to see what was going on.

"Mind your own business," said Tempest as she waved her hand down the corridor, shutting off the doors.

"We should probably go sit down," said Nila.

"Probably," said Void looking down at her. Tempest stared at them a small smile on her face before opening their door carriage door.

***

Tempest ran off once her feet touched school ground. She put on her ill fitting Slytherin uniform and walked around the school looking for Draco. She stopped when she saw him with Pansy. Her hands clenched her wave and she accidentally broke off a piece of the building.

"Oops." She tossed it against the floor and stood still. She turned once again and looked at Draco. Now he was kissing her. Tempest could feel her jealousy brewing inside her and she hated it. So far, Draco was her only problem, considering Merwick couldn't hold a body for long periods of time. She turned her back and bumped into Snape.

"Oh sorry."

"Zephyr, it's all right. How are you?"

"Fine," she said. A little jealous though, she thought.

"Good. Well you should get off back to school, if Dumbledore sees you here at the beginning of the school year, you will be in great trouble."

"Haven't you heard, I love trouble." She smiled and walked off, deliberately passing in front of Draco on her way. She knew he would follow her so when she turned a corner she waited.

"Tempest?"

"Right here."

He turned around and smiled. "I thought you were here."

"Of course. So . . . when are you going to break up with Pansy."

He looked at her startled. "Are you jealous?"

"What makes you say that?"

"Well one you said her name right, and two, your tone."

"Well I'll let you decide then." She gave him along kiss on the lips before disappearing back to school.

"So how's Draco?" asked Void not bothering to look up from his book as he sat on the sofa in the common room.

"I just realized something?"

"What?"

"I'm completely jealous of Pansy!"

She heard Nila gasped. "Oh my god. You just said her name right!"

"Yeah I know," she groaned. Tempest fell backwards into the sofa and stared at the fire.
