Primrose woke up much, much earlier than the other girls as she woke up at 12:11. She tried to go back to sleep but failed every time she tried. Prim got up and put on a hoodie and sweatpants, then she walked down to the Slytherin Common Room.
She was about to sit down on the floor by the fire but she realized that she wasn't alone. Prim knew who it was already, his platinum blonde hair almost looked white when he sat next to the fire, it was Draco Malfoy.
"You couldn't sleep either?" he asked.
"No, do you mind if I sit here?" said Prim.
"No." Draco responded, Prim sat down next to him."What do you want to do?"
"I don't know, there are many things we can do. We could talk, play games, and many other things."
"Truth or dare?" Draco suggested.
"I dare you to get your Walkman and play music as loud as it can go for ten seconds." said Draco with a grin.
"Alright, a dare is a dare." said Prim getting up from her seat. She walked upstairs to her dormitory and got her Walkman from her bag. Prim came back and put the volume up as high as it can go, then she pressed play.
"SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO NOW? IF I GO THERE WILL BE TROUBLE AND IF I STAY IT WILL BE DOUBLE. SO DARLING LET ME KNOW, SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?" was all that was heard in the Common Room for ten seconds. As soon as those ten seconds were up, Primrose quickly pressed pause. And then Draco and Primrose just laughed their heads off.
"Truth...or dare,...Draco?" Primrose said in between bursts of laughter.
"Truth." said Draco wiping a tear from his face.
"How long was the last book you read?" Prim asked after she stopped laughing.
"Threehundread and nine pages. Truth or dare?"
"I dare you to prank Poe when he gets up."
"And I know just the prank to do. I'll be right back." said Prim. She got up and headed towards her dormitory and got one red and one black pen from her trunk and went back to Draco.
"What are you going to do with two pens?" Draco asked.
"You'll see. Truth or dare?"
"What is your astrological sign?"
"I'm a gemini. What's yours?"
"Gemini." Primrose yawned.
"I think we should go to bed now." said Draco. "Goodnight Primrose, see you in a few hours."
"It's almost one in the morning so, you should say good morning. Stay with me in the morning to see Poe's reaction, I'll see you in a few hours." said Primrose going up the stairs to the girl's dormitories.
Prim walked in her dorm and fell asleep successfully a few minutes after she was under the blankets of her four poster bed.
The alarm clock on Prim's night stand went off at 6:50, she got up and put on her uniform. When she was done, she grabbed the two pens and went downstairs. She went into the common room and Draco was already there.
"We're waiting on Poe. What are you going to do?" said Draco.
"I'm drawing a scratch mark. You make a mark in red pen, then color it black. Knock something over then pick it back up." Prim explained as she drew the mark on her hand.
"If you say so." said Draco. He took off one of his shoes and threw it down to the floor, making a loud thud. Draco quickly grabbed his shoe and put it back on. Primrose finished coloring the scratch and layed down on the floor face down.
"What was that?" Poe asked leaving his dorm.
"Prim!" Draco exclaimed rushing toward her. Poe ran down the stairs and crouched down by his sister.
"What happened." Poe asked, but Prim made a hand motion with her inked hand that ment 'go away' or 'back up'. Her inked had a thick line on it that went from her wrist to the beginning of her index finger, making it look like it was bleeding. "Prim we have to get you to the hospital wing, look at your hand."
"Poe I'm going to be fine. I know a few simple healing spells."
"Your lucky I trust you. Go do your spell, we'll wait you."
"Okay." was all that she said. Primrose slightly felt like there was a pit in her stomach. You should feel like this, Poe was really worried about you. You gave him quite a scare, she thought. Prim went into her dorm and washed off the ink with a wet towel. She grabbed her bag and headed back downstairs.
"Ready?" Draco asked, Prim nodded. Then the three headed down to breakfast.
The three sat down and started eating. Prim looked over at the Gryffindor table and saw that Hermione was sitting alone.
"I'll be right back." said Prim. She got up and walked over to the Gryffindor table and sat down next to Hermione. "What's the long face for?" she asked. Hermione looked up and her face lit as bright as the sun.
"Primrose, what are you doing here?" Hermione asked taking a bite out of her toast.
"Well I saw that you were alone, and there wasn't really anything to do at the Slytherin table. How was your night?"
"It was okay, I guess. The girls in my dormitory are loud, so I couldn't really sleep."
"The girls in my dorm are quiet, and heavy sleepers." Prim said but she suddenly started laughing.
"What is it?" Hermione asked.
"I'll tell you later, wanna go to the library after breakfast?"
"Absolutely, the library is like a safe haven to me."
"Come with me, I want to introduce you to someone."
"Okay." said Hermione leaving her seat. Then the two girls walked over to the Slytherin table, where Draco and Poe were talking.
"Guys," said Prim,"this is Hermione. I'm going to go to the library with her. Hermione meet Poe, my twin brother. Poe, Hermione. And Draco meet Hermione, Hermione Draco." Hermione shook the two boys hands, then left for the library with Prim.
The two girls walked into the library and were immediately welcomed by Madam Pince, the librarian.
"Good Morning girls." she greeted.
"Good Morning Madam Pince." said Prim and Hermione. The two then went to a table near a window facing the Black Lake. Prim got out her sketchbook and started drawing. Prim didn't know what to draw at first but when Hermione came back to the table and started reading, she got some inspiration.
Prim started to draw a picture of Hermione from the shoulders up, and her plan was to give it to Hermione when she was done.
"What are you drawing?" Hermione asked.
"Oh, nothing. So about earlier."
"Yeah, why were you laughing?"
"Well I said that the girls in my dorm are heavy sleepers and me and Draco played truth or dare last night."
"And he dared me to play my Walkman at the highest volume while everyone is sleeping for ten seconds."
"And no one woke up?"
"Not a single soul."
"You were not joking when you said they were heavy sleepers."
"Either that or the walls in our dormitories are extremely thick."
"Do you want to play a game?" Hermione asked.
"Sure, what game?"
"Never have I ever."
"Okay, you first."
"Alright, never have I ever cut my own hair?"
"Same, your turn Hermione."
"Never have I ever been to the emergency room?"
"I have. One time I climbed a tree and couldn't get down, so me being my stupid at the time self, jumped down and broke my leg."
"I have not."
And before the girls knew it, they became best friends. When the two had to leave the library, Prim almost forgot to give Hermione the drawing she finished not too long ago.
"Here, I made it for you." said Prim passing Hermione the drawing.
"Thank you. Who is it?"
" It's you, silly." said Prim. After she had said this Hermione had smiled.
"Wow, you are a great artist Prim."
"Well, I'm glad I met my goal."
"What goal?" Hermione asked inquisitively.
"I made you smile." said Prim then the two walked out of the library and headed to the Great Hall for lunch.
"Bye Primrose, I'll see you later." said Hermione waving goodbye
"Bye Hermione." said Prim waving back, then Hermione turned on her heel and went to Gryffindor Tower. Once Hermione had left, Prim made her way to the dungeons.
Prim had gotten to the tapestry of a silver snake and said the password. She entered the common room to find Poe, Draco and a girl who was in her third year.
"There you are." said Poe leaving his seat. "I thought we were going to have to look for you ourselves."
"I was only in the library and by the Black Lake with Hermione."
"I know but you were out there a long time." said Poe looking up at his sister who was taller than him by two inches.
"Oh, so you don't trust me when you're not around." Prim snapped.
"What he means to say is,"said Draco "we were worried about you. We do trust you, but we got worried."
"Okay. I'm sorry I snapped back at you." Prim apologized.
"Your good. So, what do you guys want to do now?" said Poe.
"I don't know. Maybe we can play a game until we go to dinner." said Draco.
"Charades?" Poe suggested.
"Sure." Primrose and Draco said at the same time, Poe laughed.
"Okay I'll be right back." said Poe running upstairs to his dormitory.
Once Poe had come back with parchment, a quill and an ink pot it was time for dinner.
"Maybe we can play tonight when everyone's sleeping." said Prim.
"Yeah, maybe." said Poe putting all of his stuff on the table.
Then, the three headed to the Great Hall for dinner. The they sat down at the Slytherin table and started eating. When everyone was finished eating, Dumbledore made an announcement.
"I have an announcement for all first years." he said, Primrose,Draco and Poe looked up."All first years shall take a tour of the castle tomorrow morning. And the House prefects are the ones who shall be guiding them."
After all of the Slytherins had left the table and went to the Common Room, Amanda had said that if the first years behave themselves tomorrow then she will show them a few secret passageways.
"But only if you behave." said Amanda, then she went to her dorm for the night.
"See you two in a little bit." said Prim going up the stairs to her dorm.
Prim went back to the Common Room at 11:03 where Poe and Draco were waiting to start.
"Alright, who is going first?" asked Draco.
"Who's the oldest?" Poe asked.
"My birthday is June fifth 1980." said Draco.
"I was born on May twenty eighth and Poe was born on the same day but is younger by ten minutes. So I'm the oldest of the three of us." said Prim.
"Okay then Primrose it's your turn." said Draco.
Prim walked over to the pile of parchment slips, picked one and it read,"Back To The Future". She made a gesture meaning 'movie'.
"Cinema?" Poe guessed, Prim shook her head 'no'.
"Movie?" Draco guessed, Prim nodded 'yes'. Then she walked backwards.
"Back?" said Draco, Prim nodded 'yes'. She held up two fingers.
"Back to." said Poe, Prim walked forwards after she had nodded 'yes'.
"Back to forward?" Draco guessed, Prim nodded 'no' and pointed to her wrist then walked forwards.
"Back To The Future?" Poe guessed, Prim nodded 'yes' one last time.
The three played a few more rounds until Poe gave in and went to bed, then it was only Draco and Prim. The two sat in silence before Prim decided to talk.
"So, what class are you looking forward to the most?" she asked.
"Probably potions. I wish we could sign up for quidditch this year." said Draco.
"Me too, It doesn't really make sense. Since this year we have to take flying lessons and we don't start quidditch until next year. But it's probably for our safety."
"True. What is your favorite colour?"
"Well I don't really have one but lavender, emerald and rose gold are my top three."
"Mine are emerald and sea blue. Favourite food?"
"Grilled steak, grilled salmon and roasted potatoes with rosemary. But not together."
"I'm a big fan of seafood. What else could we ask each other?" Draco asked running out of ideas.
"Favourite book? Mine is IT by Stephen King." said Prim.
"I read a lot, so I don't really have one."
The two began to know each other well quickly and had started to become good friends, it was 2:13 and the two started to become tired.
Draco yawned,"I'm going to bed, see you in the morning Primrose."
"Good night Draco." she said. Then she went to sleep.
After the tour on Tuesday, students started to prepare themselves for their first day of school the next day. Prim got up early and packed her bag for the day.
"Quills check, ink check, Standard Book Of Spells Grade One check, notebooks check, wand check, transfiguration textbook check..." she made sure she had everything she needed so she would not be unprepared.
Prim put on her uniform and headed downstairs with her bag, sat down on the couch and started to draw. Prim was sketching a dress that she would like to make someday. The dress had a white, strapless bodice and the skirt was sea blue with layers upon layers of tulle the same colour.
And she started to draw more and more sketches of clothes until people started to get up.
"Good morning Primrose." said Draco
"Moring." she said.
"Is this the sketch book you were talking about last night?" Draco asked referring to their late night conversation from the previous night.
"Yeah, you can look through it if you'd like."
"Okay." said Draco taking the book from Prim's hands, he flipped through the sketches and handed the book back to Prim. "You are a pretty good artist Primrose."
"Thanks, is Poe up yet?"
"Yes, he is. He said that he was almost ready when I came out." said Draco, Poe walked out of the boys dorms.
"Morning Prim." Poe greeted.
"Are you two ready?" Draco asked.
"Yes." replied the twins.
"Okay then let's go. We don't want to be late for our first day." said Draco.
The three then walked to breakfast and sat down at the Slytherin table. Soon enough, it was time to start their classes. The first class of the day for first years was flying lessons.
When they got there, they were instructed to stand beside a broomstick and wait for Madam Hooch. A few minutes later, a tall woman with short, grey and black hair with yellow eyes stepped forward.
"Good morning, class." she said.
"Good morning, Madam Hooch." said the entire class at once.
"Welcome to your first flying lesson. Now, stick out your right hand on the left side of your broom and say 'up'."
"Up!" said Harry, the broom shot up and went into his hand.
"Up!" said Prim, the broom shot up and went into her hand.
"Up!" said Draco and Poe at the same time, the broom shot up and went into their hands.
Once everyone had summoned their broom Madam Hooch gave them another set of instructions.
"When I blow my whistle, you will push off of the ground, stay in the air for a second, then come back down." she explained. "Alright, three, two, one." Madam Hooch blew her whistle but Neville pushed off before everyone else did, causing him to go higher.
"Woah." said Neville.
"Mister Longbottom, get down this instant!" Madam Hooch yelled.
However, it looked as though Neville couldn't control his broomstick. Neville went higher and higher, then he went forward and nearly crashed into a placeholder for a torch. But instead, the hood of his robe caught the torch placeholder and he hung there for a few seconds before he fell to the ground. Madam Hooch ran to Neville's aid and had said that he had a sprained wrist.
"If I see anyone, and I mean anyone on their brooms when I get back, they will have a detention before they can say quidditch." Madam Hooch said before taking Neville to the Hospital Wing.
Draco had walked over to where Neville had fallen and had something in his hand. He had said something to the class but Prim couldn't hear him.
"Give it here Malfoy!" said Harry.
"No, I'll leave it for Longbottom to find." said Draco, making his broom go off of the ground."Maybe on the roof? Bit out of your reach, Potter?"
Harry was about to get on his broom but Hermione stopped him," Harry, no way. You heard what Madam Hooch said, if any-" harry pushed off of the ground anyway. "What an idiot."
"Give it here Malfoy, or I'll knock you off of your broom." said Harry.
"Is that so..." Draco said before he threw what was in his hand out into the distance. Harry made his broom go forward at top speed to richeve the object.
A minute of so later, Harry came back with a small glass ball with a gold line wrapping around the center. Other students swarmed around Harry and started cheering for him. Seconds after he came back, Professor McGonagall came by and called for Harry. After Madam Hooch came back she dismissed the class to their next period.
It was the end of the day and their last class was potions with Professor Snape. The first years filled into the classroom and sat down wherever as Snape had yet to come. Not long after everybody sat down, the door of the classroom whipped open in a dramatic manner, Professor Snape had entered the room.
"There will be no foolish wand waving or silly incantations in this classroom. Now your House Prefects have reported your behaviour the past few days so I could make a seating chart for this class." Snape said. "Mister Malfoy, sit in between Crabbe and Goyle. Miss Parkinson please sit next to Miss Bulstrode. Mister Finnigan sit next to Mister Thomas. Mister Scott sit next to Miss Abbott, and Mister Weasley sit on the other side of Mister Scott. And Mister Potter sit in between Miss Granger and Miss Scott." the students who were called got up and sat down in their assigned seats.
"Now," said Snape," who can tell me what I would get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?", Hermione's hand shot up in the air. "Potter?"
"I'm sorry what was the question?" Harry said looking up from his notebook.
"What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?" Snape repeated, Hermione's hand stayed in the air.
"I-I don't know sir." Harry stuttered.
"Well boys and girls it appears that fame isn't everything. Just so you know Potter, if I added powdered root of asphodel and an infusion on wormwood I would brew a sleeping potion so powerful it is known as the drought of living death."
After the lesson, students headed to where they wanted to go as they didn't have homework . Primrose was slightly mad at Draco for bullying another student but, she tried to not let it show. Instead of asking him why, she just gave him the silent treatment. She plugged her headphones into her Walkman, put them on but didn't play any music.
Prim took out her notebook and started to study the notes she took in class. After about five minutes of studying, Draco and Poe sat next to her on the couch.
"Hey Primrose, are you okay?" Draco asked.
"I'm fine, why?" she said. So much for giving him the silent treatment, she thought.
"Your studying and it's the first day of school. You should be relaxing." said Draco.
"Yeah we just got away from our noses being in books all day, then you put your nose back in one after twelve minutes."
"Alright, alright I'll put my notebook down." Prim surrendered. "What do you guys want to do?"
"Let's just walk around." said Poe.
"Okay, let's go." said Prim getting her bag.
Prim, Poe and Draco were exploring the castle and became inquisitive when they found a door Amanda didn't show them. Poe tried opening the door but it wouldn't budge.
"Step aside, I got this." said Prim." Alohomora." and the door unlocked.
The three walked in the room and closed the door behind them. It appeared to be an empty classroom. Nothing was inside except a small box. Prim opened the box and nothing was inside, at least that's what she thought. The room suddenly became dark, Prim could no longer see Poe or Draco then people started appearing around her in a circle.
The people in that circle were the twins mother and their father, their sister, Hermione, Poe, Draco, her godmother Keyla, and her cousins Finn and Rey. Maybe it shows the people we are the closest to, Prim thought. But then a dark figure creeped behind each person is the circle surrounding Prim and held a knife at their throat. The figure then slashed their throats causing their bodies to fall to the ground with a thud.
Prim's eyes started to become blurry with tears as she saw the corpses of those she knew around her. "No, no this can't be real." she said aloud. She fell to the floor in a kneeling position and started to cry.
"Prim. Prim!" said Poe.
"Poe, is that you?"
"Yes dumb-dumb it's me, your brother you've been living with since you were born." Poe said sarcastically, Prim chuckled.
"Can you see us?" asked Draco.
"Well, technechley." Prim answered.
"What do you- nevermind, just walk to where you hear us." said Draco.
Prim got up and started walking to where she heard the boy's voices. The circle of corpses disappeared and Prim could now clearly see Poe and Draco. Prim flew her arms around the two boys and started to cry of happiness.
"Thank Merlin it was a hallucination." she said.
"What do you mean?" Poe asked.
"I'll explain later. But the real problem we should be asking is, what was that?" said Prim.
"That my students was most- likely a boggart." said a new voice, he walked out of the shadows and it was Professor Quirrell.
"A what?" Draco asked.
"A boggart, you'll learn more about them in later years. A boggart is a creature that likes to live in small places and shows a person's worst fear when in front of it." Professor Quirrell explained," Now you three should probably head back to your Common Room. I'll take care of this."
"Yes professor." the three said.
Draco, Prim and Poe made their way back and started asking Prim questions on the way.
"What did you see?" Draco asked.
"And what did you mean by 'I can technically see you two.' ?" Poe asked.
"Let me explain," said Prim."I stepped in front of the box and you two, Hermione, Becky, Mum, Dad, Aunt Keyla, Finn and Rey were in a circle around me. Then a dark figure cut their throats and the bodies fell to the floor. When I said 'I can technically see you' I was referring to your corpses."
"Woah, now I know why you were crying so much." said Poe.
"Yeah." said Draco.
Once the three got back, they tried to enjoy the rest of the night by talking, playing games and listening to music.
