The end of November was approaching with no incidents, so far. Tempest had equipt Potter and his friends with swords as well as Maddox and Draco. She sat in the library doing her homework for Misfortune telling Class. The assignment was fairly easy for her , considering her gift and curse. Her ears twitched at the slight sound of heels on the ground. Tempest sniffed into the air looking for the coming scent. A slight snarl escaped from her moth as Astrea took a seat next to her, crossing her legs in a too short blue skirt hidden by her cloak.

"Hello precious darling Young Tempest. How are you?" she asked cockling her head delicately close to Tempest.

"Will you ever leave me alone?"

Astrea feigned looking into the air then smiled. "Not until death do we part darling."

"If you keep calling me darling and that will come swiftly."

"Oh I highly doubt that." Astrea laughed and Tempest snarled as she thrust her dagger against Astrea's neck. Her smile did not falter.

"All I need to do is cut you once Astrea Sanguina."

"Then I'll just have Louis make me the antidote."

"He wouldn't."

"Oh but he would, or else I'd kill very, very slowly."

Tempest removed her dagger and stood up speechless, knocking over her chair shocked at the all the hatred and fire with in her green and gold eyes

"What the hell has happened to you? Have they brainwashed you that mush?"

"Now at all, I think very clearly . . . Young Tempest." Astrea smiled and skipped away, her high stiletto heels clicking annoyingly as she floated away. Tempest growled and replaced her dagger before snatching u her books and paper, mumbling her way back to the Slimythings Common Room.

"Snakes Head," she snarled and the dragon flew to the ceiling. She threw her books onto the sofa and stared deeply into the burning fire ignoring Draco, Nila and Void.

"Have I mentioned that I hate Merwick."

"A lot in the recent times," said Nila who was curled up in Void's arms. Draco came and wrapped his arms around her.

"What happened?"

"Astrea is what happened Bloody bitch turned the damn tables on me. I do not appreciate being outsmarted—"

"We know," said Draco, Nila and Void in unison. She shot each of them a look and they all diverted their gazes.

"Anyway, I threatened her with the poison on my dagger, she threatened that she would kill Louis. I hate her."

"I thought you hated Merwick?" said Nila.

"Yeah well I'm not so sure that they are two different people."

"What do you mean by that?" asked Void.

"She means that she thinks that Merwick and Astrea are one n the same," said Maddox coming up from the stairs. Tempest looked at her cousin and nodded.

"That's exactly what I mean."

"But I thought the bodes decayed after a certain time due to the inhabitants of the body," said Draco.

"So we thought but Astrea could let him in, slash herself up, allow him in. With his . . . son of a bitch, I hate Merwick!" Tempest punched into the wall and the stone crumbled. S always Void fixed it up with a wave of his wand.

"Is she always like this during the school year," asked Maddox.

"Yeah," said Nila and Void in unison.

"So I've got an attitude problem, that;'s not new," said Tempest taking a seat on the floor.

"We know said Maddox showing her a charming smile. Tempest thought saw something very wrong about ths smile and it unerringly sent a chill down her spine. Maddox's smile faltered and her stated her at curiously. Tempest smiled at him and offered him a smile. It was probably just the gold, she told herself.

"Zeph are you all right?" asked Nila pulling herself out of Void's arms.

Tempest shook her head. "Yeah, no not really. I really hate Merwick. I'm starting to think that maybe I shouldn't have beheaded the bastard."

"It was a lose-lose situation Zeph," began Void. "What the hell were you suppose to do?"

Tempest shrugged. "I still don't know." She gave them all a look and they all returned it back frightened. No one knew what they were going to so, to what was going to happen. Tempest was still having trouble seeing into the future.


"Seriously Potter you can walk around, the other students won't harm you . . . much." Tempest snickered when she finished her statement and Potter gave her a look that mad r her laugh.

"Says you."

"Oh come, they're scared of me. They know that I'll hurt them if not kill them."

"You wouldn't really, would you?" Potter gave her a admonished look and Tempest went to sit down next to him.

"No, I couldn't. I think the only person I've actually killed is Merwick. Several times over." She looked away and out the window and her followed her gaze.

"Did you really behead him?"

"I had to," she said avoiding his gaze. "He wanted me in so many way. Either way, I've put Draco's life in danger and at least this way I know what's going to happen."

"And what is that?"

Tempest finally met his emerald gaze and looked around making sure that no one was around.

"Astrea uses Aurora, Merwicks blade to stab Draco."

"Have you—?"

"No," said Tempest shaking her head. "He shouldn't think that we have so little time together. I won't' make him think that."

"They sat there silent, staring at each other deeply. Tempest remembered when she first saw him. He had been with Hagrid and looked both amazed and frightened over everything. It was all so new to him. It was the same look he had when he first et her.

"What's wrong?"

Tempest smiled at him. "I'm just remembering when I first saw you. I had such a crush on you instantly. Draco teased me about it relentlessly." She laughed/

"When did you first see me?"

"The first time you ever set foot in the Leaky Cauldron." H laughed and Tempest stood up.

"Where are you going?"

"To see Draco, I miss him." Tempest ran from the dormitory and to the place se knew Draco would be. He told her he had something to tell her. Heather and Cassandra both barred her way.

"I take it you're not as friendly as Louis."

"You did this!" yelled Cassandra.

"wrong, Astrea did this to you and both knew she had lost her bloody ,ind."

"She was our best friend! You caused her to go insane!" yelled Heather attempting yo shove her. Tempest growled and shoved her against the wall while kicking a daring Cassandra away. Tempest was sick of people blaming her for things that were out of her control.

"I insist, look in a bloody magical mirror and take a good look at yourselves. I'm not to blame for everything you pair of witches.:"

Tempest walked past them and smelt Astrea. She stood still across the hall and smiled at her before blowing her a kiss. Tempest clenched her fist and eyed the red headed vampire witch with the gold tinted eyes.

"Are you him?" she said as she walked out knowing full well that Astrea was going to hear.

"I'll never tell darling," giggle Astrea. Tempest stopped at the Great Door and took on last look at Astrea who was smiling and playing with her thorn whip.


Tempest made her way to the shrieking shack. The wind blew through her hair and tank top. Her feet went over and crushed the autumn leaves beneath her feet. Tempest relished at the scenery all around her and she stared amazed at the changing and beautiful leaves and suddenly felt as though she had so little time to live. Tempest stopped walking and felt scare. She was immortal, she had all the time in work. SO why did she feel like she had so little time.

"Stop worrying so much Zeph, you've got all the time in the world." Tempest sighed and looked at her watch. She was running late with her meeting with Draco. She swore under her breath mad ran. The sun was setting and being out after dark was a hazard.

"Draco! Come on, we need to get aback to school its not safe! Draco!" She closed the door and played and charm on it. The sun was setting and already she could smell the dogs.

"Tempest up here!"

Tempests sighed and ran to the room. Draco its not—" She stopped short as she stared amazed at the room. Candles lit the room and Draco stood by the window giving her his more arrogantly charming smile.

"Like it?"

"Draco why?"

"Because I love you and have something to ask you."

"Can you please tell me what this about."

Draco walked over rot her and kissed her lightly before going down on one knee. Tempest eyes widened and her heart began to race.

"Tempest I love you. I think I've been in love with you since I met you if that's even possible.


"Shut is Tempest, I'm trying to be romantic here." Tempest laughed and let him take her hand. "Look, I love you, more than anything." He pulled out a ring and placed it on her finger. "Tempest Artemisa Nyx, will you marry me?"

"Oh Draco, you know I love you but, no, I can't." Tempest pulled Draco up and cupped his face. "Not yet Draco. I love you, more than life itself. But remember, I'm a vampire and—"

"I don't' care!" he shouted. "I love you! I want to spend at least sone of my life with you!"

"Draco—" She stopped and stared at him and finally it dawned on her. Her arm fell slank against her side and both fear and anger began to boil up inside her.

"Who told you?"

"It doesn't matter—"

"It matters to me! Who the bloody hell told you?"


"That was not his place."

"No, but this is my life, and until I die—"

"You are not going to die!" Tempest fell onto the bed and covered her face with her hand. "This is why I didn't tell you."

"Yeah, why?"

Tempest looked up at him. "Because I didn't want you to tin that we had so little time together."

"We do—"

"Shut up Draco! No we do! And if you tink that I will not marry yhou1 you aren't going to die, I'm not going to let you."


"Shut it. Draco I will marry you, when you stop believing that we have so little time together. Until then I think you should take your back."

"Keep it Tempest. I'd rather you have it either way."


"Yeah, forget I asked." Draco looked to the window. "Lets get back to the Academy Zeph." Tempest stared at him at the use of her nickname.

"Draco I love you and one day I will marry you when you prove to me that you don't believe we have so little time together."

Draco stared at her and was about to say something when something hit the window. Tempest jerked up and grabbed Draco when Entia crashed through it. Tempest growled and pulled out her sword. Entia pulled out a blade that offered a sinister hum similar to the of Aurora.

"Where's Aurora?"

"With it owner. This here is Gorx. The person you killed."

"Get off it, Merwick killed him."

"Maybe, but you knew he was going to die. You waited until the last—" Entia stropped and her eyes widened. "My, my the precious Tempest si engaged. Won't Merwick be pleased." Tempest froze and her blood chilled.

"Leave Draco alone."

"Oh but Merwick is going to have so much fun with this." Tempest anger took control and she charged at Entia. Entia laughed and got the better of her. She stabbed Tempest and she fell to the ground in pain.

"How pathetic." Entia kicked her again s and Tempest grabbed her side. Tempest watched the light in Entia's eyes glow as she stared at the ring on her hand before she left. Draco ran to her side and carried her ont the bed.

"Tempy, you'll be okay right?"

Tempest winced in pain but ignore dit and clutched to Draco for dear life and cried. Draco said nothing and cluthched her back.

"You can't—"

"Shh, I'll be all right. I know you won't let anything happen to me." They sat there together. Astrea smile flashed before her eyes.
