I was going to miss The Annual Malfoy New Year’s Eve Ball. Because I was sick. So sick that I was currently bedridden in my room, by order from the Healers at St. Mungoes.
They told me it was a type of food poisoning, from something I had eaten at Christmas dinner. Blaise offered to stay behind, but I told him to go and have fun, that I was just going to sleep. Mom wanted to stay but Ginny told her that she would take care of me, then pointed her finger in my direction
“Not one word missy, I’m staying, you were the only reason I was going and now I am staying here with you and taking care of you.”
Ginny certanatly did get all worked up when she was irritated, or when she had big ideas, or assumptons. It made me smile.
“Okay. See Mom, Gin will take care of me. Please go and have a good time. Doc, says I can get out of bed tomorrow if I’m feeling better.”
“Alright dear. If you insist. Get some rest.”
“I’ll tell Draco you say Hi, sis.”
A few days later, Blaise, Draco, Ginny and I were boarding the Hogwarts Express. I was feeling much better, no trace of ever being sick in the first place.
“Come on Guys! Lets go find a compartment.”
We raced down the hall, no idea why realyy since as heads we still had our own compartment. But it was fun. I opened the last compartment door on the left, and I saw Ronald snogging the hell out of Lavander brown, as if there were going to be no tomorrow.
“Gross.” I said and slammed the door close, opting instead for the door directly across on the right. When I Opened that one, I saw harry sitting alone, his expression leaving me the feeling that he had also seen the activities in the other compartment and was scarred for life.
“Oh, Hi Serena. Hey Gin,” He nodded at Blaise and Draco.”
“Can we sit with you Harry?’ Gin asked quietly.
“Sure. In fact I think I might just be glad for the company.”
“How was your Holiday harry?”
“Oh, that bad?”
“I’m still a minor according to the muggle law so until I’m 18 they are my guardians, and yes it was not a relaxing two weeks.”
“I’m sorry to hear that.”
“Thanks, how was your Holiday?”
Well it was a good, except I was bedridden with food poisoning all last week.”
Draco sat next to me in the compartment, letting me have the window seat and I laid my head ib his shoulder. Blaise sat next to Harry and Ginny sat on his lap.
The train ride back seemed longer than normal, and I closed my eyes deciding to rest. When I opened them again I was back at Hogwarts, already in The Heads Carriage because Draco Had carried me.
‘Why didn’t you wake me?”
“You looked so peaceful.”
“Well Thank you.”
There wasn’t a welcome feast, just a simple dinner, since classes resumed the next day and I ate, and then met up with Ginny and we walked back to the Head’s dorm.
“so what was in the compartment on the left?” Ginny blurted out.
“On the train?”
‘Oh. Uh, You don’t want to know.”
“Yes I do.”
“Alright then, it was your brother. Snogging Lavander,”
“I told you, you didn’t want to know, but you didn’t listen.”
“So when are we going to London for that spa trip?”
“It’s for before Graduation.”
“Oh so like, The week after NEWTS. You know that off week while we wait for results to come in, before we can graduate, well Mum asked the Headmistress if we could go on a trip that week instead of waiting on campus, and she agreed.”
“Yeah. Though it’s hard to believe that it’s only a few months and Graduation is upon us. It feels like I’ve lived here forever and I’m leaving my home, but then on the other hand, I’m ready for a new life.”
“I know the feeling. So long, yet so short, but I’m still ready to go although I will miss this place.”
“Sh how are things with you and Draco?” ginny asked several moments later.
“I don’t know, I like him, a lot, and I know he likes me, but I feel he is keeping a secret that is something important you know?”
“I’m going to bed, I say as the common room door opened.”
I walked up the stairs and into my room, crossing it to my bed.
Secrets secrets are no fun…
