After the feast he went to the prefects dormitory on the sixth floor.

"Password?" Said a scary looking wizard with oily black hair and long black robes. It looked like... No! It couldn't be!

"SNAPE!" Draco yelled in a suprised voice.

"Yes, Now... Password?" Snape said with and annoyed and stern expression.

"I thought you... Oh, right." Draco straightened up and continued, "Madriko Minor."

"I'll be here when ever you need to talk Draco." He caught snape say when he opened the door way.

Draco walked in and couldn't believe what he was seeing.There were four doors along the back wall, each with a different school house crest and decorated with that specifice house color. A giant chandelier laced with jewels hung from the ceiling.There were padded chairs of the house colors and paintings lining the walls, all moving of course. There was one painting above each door, and When draco saw who they were of, he was filled with excitement. The first door on the left was Hufflepuff, and the painting was of no other then Helga Hufflepuff! the second door was Ravenclaws', and above that door was Rowena! But when he turned to look at Gryffindor and Slytherins painting, they were empty.

Draco heard shouting in a near by painting and spun around to catch sight of the two bickering about something. As he walked closer he caught a few words they had said.




When they noticed Draco was watching, they ceased the conversation and walked back to their places above the doors. Draco walked with them to the front of the Slytherin door and noticed it didn't have a handle, in fact non of the doors had handles.

"Password?" Salazar looked down at him to ask.

"Madriko Minor?" Draco said, confused that there were two painting doors. Maybe it was for extra protection? Draco Wondered.

"I'm sorry but that is incorrect." Salazar said looking behind Draco as if someone was behind him, and sure enough, there was.

"Dracottomus Mandrake." Hermione whispered into his ear, and almost touched him in the process, gave him goose bumps.

"Thanks!" Draco whispered to her not even turning around to look at her. She was wearing her Gryffindor robes with the prefect badge on the the right side of her chest, and her hair was no longer bushy and frizzy like it use to be. It was now straight and smooth, she tied it back in a messy bun when they had gotten on the train.

Draco straightened up and cleared his throat, then said the password Hermione had given him, "Dracottomus Mandrake!"

Just then the door swung open. Before he walked in his new room he waited for Hermione to say he password, just in case, he kept telling himself.

"Sumet Serpentia!" Hermione said smiling at Draco as he took note and walked into his room to write it down.

Draco was amazed, the room was as big as a small muggle house. The, gigantic, dark oak, four poster bed was covered in satin and silk blankets with a green and silver striped pattern that matched his tie. The walls, floor and ceiling were all dark oak too. On one side of the bed was a pair of large double doors that led to the bathroom. There was another pair of doors that he knew was the closet.

It suddenly came to him... It was an exact copy of his room back at the manor, it even smelled like it.

He walked over to the large dark colored wooden desk and picked out a roll of yellowish parchment and a quill and wrote:

Prefect Common room (Snape) = Madriko Minor

Slytherin Dorm room (Salazar) = Dracottomus Mandrake

Gryffindor Dorm room (Godric) = Sumet Serpentia

Ravenclaw Dorm room (Rowena) =

Hufflepuff Dorm room (Helga) =

He didn't know Luna's or Susan's password yet, so he left it blank. He grabbed a book and headed to the common room to wait for Susan and Luna. After many long minutes of waiting they finally arrived and sat in the seats to the right of him and were giggling instead of going to there rooms.

Suddenly Hermione came out of her room and plopped down in a seat to the left of his, he was surrounded.

McGonagall walked in and handed them all, what seemed to be a list of sorts.

"This will be your class schedule for the year." McGonagall announced.

"You and your partner will patrol the halls together, no questions asked." Draco looked through the class list:

After every one looked through their schedule, McGonagall announced the partner pairings.

"Luna and Susan, you'll take patrol in the morning." Then she looked at Draco and Hermione.

"Hermione and Draco, you'll take patrol before bed." After about a minute of silence she pulled out a pocket watch and a wave of worry came over her.

"Now, now, off to bed with you. You'll need some energy for tomarow!" McGonagall motioned them all to their rooms.

Draco heard Luna's password before he walked in his room, and went to go write it down.

Before he could reach the desk he heard a pop from behind, and whirled around to come face to face with his house elf, Willow.

"Willow? What are you doing here?" Draco looked at her hands and saw she held a piece of parchment.

"Willow has come with a letter for master Draco." She whispered just loud enough for Draco to hear. She handed Draco the letter and with a pop she was gone. The letter was from his mother. He gently peeled the wax seal off and read:

Dear Draco,

Your father has been let out of Azkaban Prison, and has return to the manor. If you wish him else were you are welcome to come to his showing with the ministry this coming break.

P.S. Willow will be staying with you for the year.

Sincerely, Narssica Malfoy

Draco felt like some one had punched him in the gut. He fell back on the desk chair, threw the letter in the air, and set it aflame. There was a flash of orange light then a puff of smoke and the letter was gone. He hated his father for two things, he cheated on his mother, and he was a big supporter of the Darl Lord.

Draco got dressed for bed then jumped into his satin and silk blankets. He could not fall asleep, he tossed and turned until he gave up and walked back to his desk. He remembered, he forgot to write Luna's password down. He searched his desk for a quill, and when he found one he pulled out the roll of parchment and wrote:

Ravenclaw Dorm room (Rowena) = Tulupin Turnpike

He leaned back in his chair and put his hands over his face. He was falling asleep, when he heard a knock on the door to his room. He walked over to the door and opened it slowly. Hermione was standing in the door way.

"I heard something and I thought you might be awake, I'm sorry if I woke you up I'll just..." Draco cut her off, "No, no, I was up. Couldn't go to sleep either I see?" Draco said, rather tired.

"No." She looked down and started to speak again, "I was wondering... Since you're awake... If you'd like to study with me? I understand if you don't."

"No, I'll join you, or would you like to come in here and study." Draco wondered why he was being so nice to here, and walked over to his desk to grab his books and schedule.

"Out here will be fine... Oh look, we've got the same schedule!" Hermione said.
