The next morning wasn’t any better. We have toad face again and with that came the arguments of Harry Potter and almost every single Gryffindor in the room. I swear if they don’t think at least five seconds before they say anything else during life, they will have problems. My objective was now this, how do I get to talk to Harry Potter and EXPLAIN to him what I’m supposed to do? I turned to see Neville shake his head in a “no, No, NO” motion. I just sighed.

What else could I do today? Let’s see the Slytherins are still not talking to me, they give me glares at which I respond with an evil look while smiling, (this scares them like crazy!), and Adrian Pucey is blocking my way. Wait! Pucey is blocking my way!

“Yes Adrian?”

“What are you doing?”

 

“Walking to class…”

“With Longbottom?”

“Didn’t anyone teach you that it’s rude to interrupt people?!” I crossed my arms and tapped my heel. Yes, that’s right I tap my heel instead of my foot.

“That’s not the point! The point is that you’re walking with Longbottom.” I rolled my eyes, “What is wrong about that?”

“He’s a Gryffindor!”

“Lord to this again? Okay answer me this. Does he have two eyes?”

“What?”

“Answer me!” if I could actually shoot daggers out of my eyes I so would.

“Yes”

“Does he have two arms, feet, a nose, a mouth?”

“Yes. The thing is…”

“The thing is that he’s not an alien or a deformed person. Look I don’t get what is up with the houses, but I come from the other side of the pond. I wasn’t raised to think that I’m better than anyone else? I wasn’t even a spoiled brat! Maybe this is something that British families have carried on for ages. Now answer me this. Do I look British or European to you?”

“No”


“Then? If y’all want me to understand your ways you have to tell me about them first. Now, I have other places to be and so do you.”With this I left the crowd of students with Neville to herbology. Honestly, I have to admit, breaking Slytherin rules is very frustrating. I wonder if this is how Draco feels every now and then.

When it was time for potions I looked at Harry Potter. You see I had to draw a piece of paper from a hat and that would be our potions partner. For the Rest OF THE YEAR! (Draco got Luna! Snape saw her potential so she’s with the rest of us fifth years.) Well at least my worries in how to talk to him were over. Guess what? Slytherins and Gryffindors are staring, again. Some at each other others at us. My First thought was to get the ingredients. Man! Note to self: bring a small basket to Snape’s class! How am I going to start a conversation with the boy?”


 

“Thank –you,” His green eyes seemed to glow in the room that was nearly dark.

“For what? I haven’t done anything for you. At least not that I can’t think of.”I told him putting the ingredients down and looking at the potions book.

“Thank you for defending Neville, and not having judged him for the way he looks or acts like.”

“You mean shaky and nervous”

“Ugh, yeah”

“He’s not that bad. The more I get to know him the less shaky he is. He is really nice.”

“Yeah…How did you end up in Slytherin?”

“Why ask me? Ask the hat. Look, the hat puts you on a house according to skills and some personality.”

“Never thought about it that way”

“Never say never Mr. Potter. You want to know something?”

“Sure”
“When Luna and I were sitting on Whomping Willow, it was two days before you guys arrived, I told her that I would end up in Hufflepuff. She told me I would be in Slytherin.”

“Why would Luna tell you that?”

“Maybe because she’s known me for 14 years and knows how cunning, impulsive, mysterious, prankster, manipulative, and a bit of a controlling person I can be.” At this he took a step back and looked at me confused. As if he couldn’t identify if I was evil or good.

“Don’t worry I don’t bite. I’m not a Cannibal. At least I don’t think. Plus that person only comes out when she has a plan. I’m warning you now that you better brace yourself for the plans that I have for Umbridge.”

“You really don’t like her do you?”

“And who does?”

“20 points for Slytherin and 10 for Gryffindor “said Snape.

“Before I forget. You got close to Whomping Willow without it hurting you?”

“Yes!” Saved by the bell. Classes were over! I waited for Luna and we headed towards Whomping Willow. When we got there we sang her a little song in and climbed a branch to enjoy the view. “Hey Luna why don’t we try out for Quidditch?

“What?!!!!!!”

“Oh come on I know what you can do! In know that you’re an amazing seeker and chaser!”

“No, no Cho Chang will try to kill anyone who tries for her spot.”

“Luna, Luna, Luna, maybe she needs help or would like to take a break during half time.”

“I don’t know…”

“Do I have to make you or can I put puppy doggie eyes and it will be alright?”

“How about if we talk about something else”

“Alright, tell me about Pansy, Parkinson.”

“Do I really have to?”

“Who wanted to talk about something else?”

“Fine. Pansy Parkinson is a pretty, but she’s also mean and nasty. She likes to get what she wants and follows Draco like s lost puppy! But you can tell that he doesn’t want her, but he never brushes her off completely because she will do his homework and even some of his assignments as if that will make him want her!”I looked at her closely and watched as her lips turned into a berry shade and her eyes turned more intense.

“Hey!” We turned around to see Draco Malfoy and his minions (which included Pansy), “How did the two of you get up there without that thing killing you?”

Would have done us a complete favor” said Parkinson.

“Hey whom, would you mind if you Whomp her?” I asked the tree. In less than a second it took its longest branch and tried to hit the four little ants that were running around for their lives. I was about to laugh when I saw Luna’s expression. Aww, Man! “Whomp, stop, stop. I just wanted to scare them and it worked. Thank you.” The tree calmed down and let us get off without any trouble.”

“How did you do that?”

“That’s something for you to figure out. Come on lets go to dinner Candela,” Okay, I have never seen Luna talk to HIM with such confidence and grace. Well, I haven’t seen her talk to him at all.

“Really, Lovegood?” We both turned around and said, “Which one?”

“The blonde Looney one,” okay at this I was frustrated. I could feel my chocolate locks turn into the vivid color of flames slowly from the bottom. I stopped when Luna grabbed my hand. Only the tips of my hair had the red-orange color on them. Hopefully none of them noticed.

“What do you want to know now Malfoy?” She responded in a flat tone. What made this frightening, yet exquisite, was that her face looked blank, but the anger in her eyes was so strong that it also scared me!

“Same thing that I asked not to long ago Lovegood”

“My answer is still the same,” and with this we were heading to the great hall leaving open jaws behind. When we were far way for their ears I said what I wanted to say.

“You go girl! How did you manage to do that?”

“I don’t know! We’ve never been caught on Whomping Willow.” I heard her say before she headed to the raven claw table. I headed to the Slytherin table and sat in front of Blaise. God he is hot! What to say to him? He probably hates me at the moment as well.

“Hey there Candela”

“Hello there Blaise. What have you been up to?”

“Nothing besides the usual homework and being myself. You?”

“Classes, Luna explaining to me more about the students in the school, and planning what I’m going to do to Umbridge”

“Wait. You plan to irritate Umbridge? She’s with the ministry!”

“So, she’s with the ministry of England, not with the Ministry of the States. So if I ever do something that she considers against the “law” I won’t have a lawyer. I will have the entire ministry of the States and my clan.”

“Clan? Hold on! How do you expect an entire ministry of the states behind you?”

“When your father is the minister…”

“Oh, SHIT!!! Girl you sure know what you’re doin! No wonder you’re in this house!!”
