Chapter Ten: Wannabe



Today was Lindsay's birthday. And everyone but Lindsay, who was hanging out with the Weasley twins and Emilie, who was hanging out with Cedric, was sitting in the girl's dorms going over some last minute details for her party.

"Costumes?"

"Check."

"Chicken chow mein?"

Check."

"Presents?"

"Check."

"Names in a hat?"

"Check."

"Ice cream cake?"

"Check."

"Birthday tiara?"

"Check."

"Video camera and music speakers with the spell from Dumbledore on them?"

"Check."

As you can see, this wasn't a normal birthday, but then again, our birthday parties were never considered normal affairs. And now that I think of it, we were never considered normal either.

So when Lindsay came up to the dorm, the party started. We only had a few girls coming; Hannah, Hermione, Ginny, Shana, Emilie, Amy and of course, me.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY JELLYBEAN!" I screamed while hugging my dear, sweet friend.

In eighth grade, we thought of random food nicknames for each other. Lindsay was Jellybean, Hannah was Hedgehog (the chocolate kind. It's the only chocolate she'll actually eat) and I was Popcorn or Poppy because of my love of popcorn.

"Thank you guys!" Lindsay exclaimed, giving everyone a hug. "So what's first?"

"Well, we thought we'd bring back some good ol' Grade 8 memories," Hannah said, exchanging a secretive smile with me.

"So everyone who wants to take a guess as to what we're going to be doing, pick a piece of paper from the hat. But only five people," Emilie said. Hannah, Lindsay, Ginny, Hermione (shocking, right?) and I all reached in and grabbed one, Hannah and I knowing exactly what we were signing up for.

"Ginger Spice?" Ginny asked.

"Posh Spice?" Hermione asked.

"Oh no, we are not..." Lindsay trailed off, looking at us in disbelief.

"Yes we are! We're making our own Hogwarts version of the music video for Wannabe by the Spice Girls! We have costumes and everything!" Hannah exclaimed, running over to my bed and pulling out five clear plastics bags from underneath it. Each bag had a different costume inside it, and she handed one to each of us, according to our slips of paper.

"Now every go and get changed!" Shana ordered as we all piled into the bathroom and got changed.

I came out as Baby Spice, which happened to be my favorite Spice Girl back in the day. I put in blonde hair extensions which made my hair looking like it reached the middle of my stomach. I put on a short circle neck dress, and a pair of white platform boots that reached my knees and have very high heels.

Hannah had on a dark brown wig that reached her shoulder, a whole new experience for her since she's always had long hair. She had on a striped spaghetti strap top that had a very relaxed fit and showed off her midriff. She also had on a pair of black yoga pants, and runners, or trainers as they called them here in good ol' Britain.

Hermione was wearing a white halter-style dress that was really short, and I wasn't sure whether it was that or the deep neckline that made Hermione look so uncomfortable, so when I saw her I made the neckline a little shorter and the hemline a little longer. She also had on a pair of white strappy high heels and a short brown wig that was a challenge to get on because of her hair.

Ginny was wearing the dress that Ginger Spice had made famous. A short, spaghetti strap dress with the British flag on it. It reached mid-thigh (thanks to a lengthening spell), and she also had on red platform boots with high heels that reached mid-calf. For her hair, we added in two bleach blonde hair pieces right in the front, and teased the rest of her hair to make it bigger and better. We also flipped the ends of it, and made the blonde pieces frame her face.

And finally, Lindsay had on a cheetah print suit-like thing with a plunging neckline that reached just below her bellybutton, showing off her navel piercing, and had a black bikini top underneath. The suit itself had no sleeves, and Lindsay was wearing a black, curly afro-like wig.

"Let's do this!" I said after we had all taken a few pictures. Amy picked up the camera and Emilie brought the music out to the stairs.

"And...go!" Amy said just as Emilie pressed the play button and we all started lip-synching.

"Yo, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want," Lindsay lip-synched.

"So tell me what you want, what you really really want," Ginny lip-synched. It was obvious that even though she was a pureblood witch, she listened to the Spice Girls back in the day. Groups like Spice Girls really are universal.

"I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want," Lindsay lip-synched.

"So tell me what you want, what you really really want."

"I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha."

"If you want my future forget my past," Hannah mouthed.

"If you wanna get with me better make it fast," I lip-synched.

"Now don't go wasting my precious time," Lindsay lip synched. We were now in the middle of the common room, receiving odd looks from bystanders.

"Get your act together we could be just fine," Ginny mouthed.

"I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want."

"So tell me what you want, what you really really want."

"I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha."

"If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, Make it last forever friendship never ends, If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give, Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is," We all lip-synched while doing the dance on the stairs going down. It's sad when a group of teenagers knows the dance to a song by a girl group that disbanded years ago.

"What do you think about that now you know how I feel," Hannah lip-synched, me lip-synching the harmony.

"Say you can handle my love are you for real," I mouthed, going over to Harry and ruffling his hair.

"I won't be hasty, I'll give you a try," Lindsay mouthed.

"If you really bug me then I'll say goodbye," Ginny lip-synched.

"Yo I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want."

"So tell me what you want, what you really really want."

"I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha."

"If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, Make it last forever friendship never ends, If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give, Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is," We all lip-synched, as we danced around the common room.

"So here's a story from A to Z, you wanna get with me you gotta listen carefully, we got Em in the place who likes it in your face, we got G like MC who likes it on an," Lindsay pretending to rap.

"Easy V doesn't come for free, she's a real lady," Ginny mouthed.

"And as for me...ah you'll see," Lindsay moved her mouth to the words, pretending this was really funny. "Slam your body down and wind it all around."

"Slam your body down and wind it all around," We all lip-synched. "If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, Make it last forever friendship never ends, If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give, Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is. If you wanna be my lover."

During this we were all dancing with random people, me dancing with mostly Harry and Ron. Harry was laughing, but Ron was more confused. Ron's reaction was actually quite funny, because here we were, these amazingly attractive girls dancing with him, yet he didn't do anything except for sit there, confused. Harry was fun though, he was dancing with me.

"You gotta, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta, slam, slam, slam, slam," Hermione lip-synched for the first time. Have you ever noticed that Posh Spice doesn't sing that much?

"Slam your body down and wind it all around. Slam your body down and wind it all around. Slam your body down and wind it all around," We all mouthed.

"Slam your body down zigazig ah," Lindsay mouthed to the music, doing the Scary Spice move that was in the actual music video.

"If you wanna be my lover," We all sang as we came together at the top of the stairs and posed, the song ending. We all started laughing as we got applause from everyone. We all took bows before running back upstairs to the dorm, deciding to continue the party up there.

"That was hilarious!" Shana exclaimed as we all collapsed on the floor, laughing.

"Even I had fun doing that, and that is definitely saying something," Hermione said, chuckling.

"You know what I think?" Lindsay asked and we all shrugged, no one really wanting to know what she was thinking with that mind of hers. "I think we should play hide and seek!"

"YEAH!" We all screamed in agreement, the sugar starting to get to us.

"Birthday girl has to be it, count to one hundred," I said, grabbing a handful of candy. Before she could even response, we had all ran out of the room. I frantically looked for a place to hide and decided that the boy's dorms would be the best place to hide in.

"Now what are you doing?" Harry asked just as I popped a few more candies into my mouth.

"Playing hide and seek," I said after swallowing. "And now that you're here and you've seen me, you can't leave because you could tell Lindsay where I am. So where's your bed?"

He pointed to the one by the window and I ran over, making a dramatic dive onto it. "You do know you're still in costume, right?" He asked as I spread out on his bed, only giving him enough room to sit down at the very end.

"Yup, I know. It's a very sexy costume though," I said, playing with my now extra long hair. Harry looked like he was trying to get comfortable, but obviously couldn't with my body sprawled out everywhere.

"Oh yes, it really is," He said, laughing as I sat up.

"You move up here, and I'll just lie on top of you," I said as he sat down at the top of his bed. I put my head into his lap so I was looking up at him. "I have two things to tell you. One is that you have very nice skin," I said, making him laugh. "And the second is that the girl's dorms are much prettier than the boy's dorms."

"I've never seen the girl's dorms, which is weird considered that I've been friends with Hermione since first year," Harry said, playing with my extra long hair. Oh my, that felt good. I loved it when people played with my hair.

"You're so silly! You can't go into the girl's dorms!" I said in one of my goofy voices because of the major sugar high I was having, which meant that I would probably crash in a few hours, but not if I had more sugar!

"And why not?" He said in a mock hurt voice.

"Because there's a spell that doesn't let boys in. The founders apparently thought that girls were more trustworthy than you guys," I noted. "Got any candy?"

"Yup," He said, summoning some from his trunk and handing some of it to me to eat, because really, what else would you do with it? Look at it? "But I find that very hard to believe."

"I am insulted that would you even imply-"

"FOUND YOU!" Lindsay burst into the room, pointing at me.

"Fine," I huffed.

"Oh, what's going on here? Maybe a little bit of-"

"Okay Linds, time to go find the others," I pushed her out of the room because she could finish that sentence and embarrass me.

A few hours later, we were all sitting in the girl's dorm with freshly polished fingernails and toenails talking about everything from school to boys (especially my crush on Harry, which seemed to be the major point of discussion lately. I was totally against talking about it, but they forced it out of me with chocolate and caramel! You just can't resist that unless you're Hannah and hate both of those things). All in all, it was a very good night.



Next time on "Hogwarts, Here We Come!"

"I just can't believe how good you were! It was absolutely incredible! You were flying everywhere and then you just scooped it up like it was no big deal and it was just so...awesome!" She exclaimed, making totally ridiculous hand gestures as she spoke.

"It wasn't that great," I said, awkwardly ruffling my hair.

"Don't be modest, Harry! You are absolutely marvelous!" She exclaimed, making some more hand gestures. I looked into those beautiful, light green eyes of hers and something just came over me - I couldn't help it anymore. I had my hands resting on her hips, her arms now lightly hanging on my shoulders and I just started to lean in when-
