A/N: Hello ma cheries! Sor this chapter took so long, I was updating another story Passion and my first ever one shot - you should check them out :)
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
You know those moments where you wish that Dumbledore’s Army hadn’t destroyed all the time-turners in existence, so you could go back and change what had just happened?
I was having one right now.
“We can so use this one!” Justine giggled, doing a weird handshake with Alessandria that’s vocals went like, “Ah, shhhh, boom!”
“What do you mean use this one?” I asked.
“In our plan,” Justine began.
“To bring you down,” Alessandria sneered.
“What?” I spluttered.
“You know, tell the school, ruin you, the usual,” Alessandria said simply.
“Oh no you won’t!” I cried.
“Yes we will,” Justine smiled, “You are going to be finished,”
“Please,” I whispered, “I’ll do anything! I can’t let you do this to James,”
“It won’t affect James,” Alessandria said.
“Yes it will,” I cried, “He’s the dad you bitch,”
“Duh,” Justine sneered, “Who else would sleep with you?”
I felt my face turn bright red but I spat out,
“A lot of people would like to actually. You know that Sam Wood? The famous Quidditch player? He’s friends with my brother and he was over at my families party of the summer break, let’s just say he was throwing himself at me,”
Alessandria opened her mouth and closed it a couple of times making herself look like a goldfish. I grinned at her then looking at Justine. She was staring at me with her eyes wide.
“Really?” she whispered.
“Uh huh,” I grinned, folding my arms over my chest.
It was true, Oliver Wood and Katie Bell’s oldest son, Sam Wood was my brother’s best friend and it wasn’t a secret that he fancied me. Every summer my parents threw a massive party with their work partners to show off how lovely their family was and how rich we were. In other words it was the most boring party in the history of boring parties.
Though this year, Mitch was allowed to bring a friend and he chose the famous Sam Wood. Sam and him had been best friends all through school with them both being completely obsessed with Quidditch. My brother played on the Gryffindor team with Sam during their days, but Mitch was nowhere as good as Sam. It wasn’t surprising that Sam had been selected to play as the Puddlemere’s keeper after he left Hogwarts, with his father playing there before him, the Puddlemere United Quidditch team loves the Wood family.
Sam had come with my brother to the party and Sam being the rich party boy he was, walked straight to the bar, ordered a scotch (the manly drink apparently) and scanned the room for a ‘young hot chick’ to give his ‘extremely amazing company’ for the night. His eyes had found my lonely figure in the corner drinking my lemon, lime and bitters (mum had given me a no alcohol rule) and he came right up to me and flirted. Sam hadn’t seen me since I was ugly and hadn’t recognised me, but when I told him my name he almost fell off his chair. Still, he continued to flirt with me even though I didn’t reply.
If I was a normal girl, I would have been squealing in excitement that the gorgeous, rich and amazing Sam Wood was flirting with me and thought I was hot enough to be considered.
Obviously, with my heart set on James I wasn’t going to look at Sam anymore then a friend even though I did admit to owning a poster of him topless in my bedroom that every girl had.
Also, my brother would kill Sam, then me.
I didn’t want to die.
In other words, Sam was nice and we were now actually friends.
I had taken my poster of him topless down after that.
Having a poster of a close friend topless in my room would be classified as creepy.
Ha, I was friends with Sam Wood.
I actually received a letter from him the other day.
SUCK ON THAT BITCHES.
“He talked to you?” Justine gawped.
“Yeah, we’re friends,” I sniggered.
“That’s so cool!” Justine grinned, “Could you introduce me?”
“SHUT UP JUSTINE!” Alessandria roared.
“I don’t care if your friends with Sam Wood, I’m still bringing you down,” Alessandria sneered, “You deserve it!”
“How do I deserve it then? I don’t think I’ve done anything wrong,” I sneered.
Oh yes, I’ve been real nice.
I’ve only yelled to the whole school that you slept with my boyfriend, kicked you out of our group very publicly, ignored you, and cursed you publicly.
That is what I call nice.
I’m one of the nicest people around.
“Are you serious?” Alessandria roared, “You humiliated me in front of the school and cursed me!”
What I did was classified as mean?
I didn’t know that.
“And you stole my boyfriend!” Alessandria yelled.
That’s when I snapped.
And when I mean snapped, I mean went bonkers.
“WHAT THE HELL? STOLE YOUR BOYFRIEND? ARE YOU KIDDING ME! YOU’RE THE ONE THAT CHEATED ON HIM USING MY BOYFRIEND! YOU STOLE MY BOYFRIEND!”
“I broke up with James before I started dating Freddie,”
“DON’T LIE! I KNOW YOU AND FREDDIE WERE DATING WHEN YOU WERE DATING JAMES FOR A MONTH! AND JAMES BROKE UP WITH YOU HONEY!”
Alessandria went silent.
I grinned in triumphant and stalked past them, extremely happy with myself.
I ruined those bitches.
MAE – 1, THE TWEEDLE TWINS – 0.
“You are going down, the way you took me down humiliated publicly,” Alessandria sneered.
Then she sent a tripping jinx at me and I fell flat on my face.
I FELL ON MY STOMACH.
WHAT IF MY BABY GOT HURT?!
Oh, she’s going down.
I jumped up and pulled my wand out, getting into a duelling position.
“What’s wrong? Got lipstick on your tooth?”
“BITCH! YOU MIGHT HAVE HURT MY BABY!” I screamed before throwing a wide range of jinx’s her way.
That’s when I realised that Justine had woken from her daydreams about Sam and pulled her wand out too.
Two against one.
Yay for me.
The Tweedle Twins blocked my jinx’s, sending some back with the stinging jinx hitting me on my wrist.
That was extremely close to my stomach.
Way to close.
“ARGHHHHHHHHH!” I screamed in frustration sending more jinx’s that they blocked and vanished.
That’s when James arrived.
He always sees me duelling these two.
He must think I’m some crazy duelling- hating twat.
Guess that’s kind of true.
“HOLD UP!” James yelled, “What the hell Mae?”
I could only growl at the Tweedle Twins.
“Mae! Why the hell were you jinxing these two? You said you weren’t going to rise to their level anymore!” James asked, “It’s not good for you,” he added in a whisper.
“We know,” Justine snarled.
“Know what?” James paled slightly.
“That you knocked her up,” Alessandria grinned.
James’ skin at that moment went from golden to white.
I HATE MYSELF.
GOD MAE! CAN’T YOU KEEP A SECRET?
“Is that why you were jinxing them?” James whispered, “We could have dealed with it,”
“No,” I managed.
“What then?” James asked.
“She. Made. Me. Fall. On. My . Stomach.” I growled.
James roared and pulled out his wand.
“What’s so wrong with that?” Justine asked.
If you hadn’t noticed, she’s a little daft.
“You could have hurt the baby!” James snarled.
“Oh, right,” Justine said.
“Oops,” Alessandria sneered, “Wouldn’t want James junior or Mae junior to get hurt. James I hope that it’s going to be a James junior, I wouldn’t want an ugly Mae junior,”
James growled, wow, the pair of us are becoming dogs, but I completely lost it.
I went past bonkers.
I went straight for crazy.
I yelled and ran to her, not caring about my wand, I was going to kill her with my bare hands. Before I could reach her (I got so close!!) I was blasted back off my feet and I hit the wall behind. I felt a sharp pain behind my head but I ignored my pain, she was hurting my baby.
“MAE!” I heard James yell.
I stood up and I felt myself sway. Darn it, stupid head. GET STRONGER.
I swear I’m going to train my head to be stronger so I can hit my head a million times and it wouldn’t make me sway.
I’d be beast!
Like King Kong or the Hulk, those Muggle characters my brother us to tell me about.
I could be a new cartoon character with a really cool name like-
CONCENTRATE MAE! MASSIVE BITCH ALERT! SHE’S HARMING MINI JAMES!
“Mae, are you ok?” James yelled.
“Fine, just got to kill Allie-bitch over there,” I slurred, pointing at Alessandria and Justine laughing at my utter stupidity.
“But you’re bleeding Mae!” James yelled, pressing his hand to my head and pulling away drenched in a scarlet liquid.
Ooooooooo, that’s pretty! It’s so shiny!
I grabbed his hand and rubbed some of the liquid between my fingers, it was slimy.
“Oh well,” I grinned goofily, swaying past him, “ALLIE-BITCH HARMED MY MINI JAMES!”
I let out another battle cry and launched myself at her while she was laughing, she tried to stop me from landing on her but it was too late.
Never laugh in the face of Mae Flick!
We fell to the ground and I swung my arm back before letting it snap forward with all my power and whack her face.
I know what you’re thinking.
OH MY MERLIN, MAE TOTALLY JUST PUNCHED ALLIE-BITCH IN THE FACE! IT SOUND SO POWERFUL, SHE MUST HAVE BROKE HER NOSE!
No, that’s just the power of writing.
I actually just slapped her.
GIRL EQUIVALENT TO PUNCH = SLAP.
It’s just as powerful you know.
A crack filled the air as my hand landed on her cheek. I saw the red mark of my hand blossom on her cheek as I grinned widely in my triumphant go at Muggle fighting, but failed when I felt my hair get ripped upwards. I screamed in pain as I felt my hair rip and pull, but I didn’t let go of Allie-bitch as I knew that was what my attacker wanted to happen. I clawed at Allie-bitch’s face as well as giving her a taste of hair pulling, I yanked it in every direction possible. I began to kick my other attacker in desperate attempts to pull my hair free.
Then I was lifted upwards, feeling like I weighed a feather.
No, I didn’t die and my spirit was pulled from my body towards the afterlife with my best pal Merlin.
No, I didn’t somehow master the skill of flying without a broomstick. I’m not Voldemort, well without coffee I am, but that doesn’t matter know-
I could use one of them right now.
It could make that annoyingly sore spot on my head nice again, I’d-
CONCENTRATE! YOU WERE JUST TAKEN AWAY FROM A BATTLE WHICH YOU WERE WINNING!
I looked at my waist and saw that pair of strong arms was tightly around my waist and holding me away. I looked at their face and found a worried James.
Hehehehe, James looks funny worried.
But he had pulled me away from the fight!
I pulled against his arms desperately trying to get back to a red marked Allie-bitch and a heavily bruised Just-evil.
“LET ME GO! SHE HURT MINI JAMES!” I yelled, clawing his arms but then realising he was wearing a jumper and shirt.
Prat came prepared.
“Stop Mae! You’re bleeding really heavily from the head and you’ve got other cuts too! We need to get you to the hospital wing!” James roared, but I didn’t stop and I just kept clawing.
“MINI JAMES COULD BE DYING RIGHT NOW!” he yelled.
“You better listen to your boyfriend Mae, you wouldn’t want to kill the baby,” Allie-bitch sneered.
“BITCH HURT MINI JAMES! I’LL KILL HER!” I roared.
“SHE’S KILLING YOU! YOU’RE LOSING TOO MUCH BLOOD! YOU COULD KILL MINI JAMES TOO!” James yelled.
I slumped against his arms in defeat (and dizziness but let’s not worry James anymore) and he picked me up like a doll.
“We will meet again,” Allie-bitch drawled, “And I’ll win,”
“What are you five? ‘We will meet again?’ Isn’t that like the most used police movie line ever?” James retorted, starting to walk away.
“I’ll beat you next time,” Allie-bitch sneered, “And maybe I’ll even hurt the baby more,”
I snapped up from my haze and screamed again.
“YOU WILL NEVER GET NEAR HIM! YOU EVEN LAY A FINGER ON HIM AGAIN AND YOU’LL WISH YOU’VE NEVER BEEN BORN YOU FUCKING BITCH!” I roared.
James took this as his queue to leave before I got to violent again and ran down the hall, his back to the Tweedle Twins.
He needs to learn!
He was leaving himself open to the opponent! Allie-bitch or Just-evil could hex him!
TURN AROUND MAN!
I would have yelled it, but I didn’t feel like it.
In fact I felt quite sleepy, I should sleep.
I let my tired eyelids drop and I felt my body relax, that was before I was screamed at.
“MAE! DON’T FALL TO SLEEP ON ME! NOT TILL WE’RE AT THE HOSPITAL WING!” James yelled.
“But I’m sleepy Jam! I want to sleeeeeep!” I slurred.
“Shit, you’re worse than I thought,” James muttered, sprinting hard.
Merlin, how does he run that fast with a pregnant teenager in his arms?
What a strange boy he is.
“I’m not bad!” I slurred, “Just a little sleeeepy!”
I let my eyelids drop again, but this time was woken by being head butted.
WHAT THE HELL?!?!
“What was that for?” I slurred.
“YOU CAN’T FALL TO SLEEP ON ME YET!” James yelled, “WE ARE ALMOST THERE!”
“That means I can sleep now! Yay!” I slurred, dropping my eyelids again.
“NO! DON’T YOU DIE ON ME MAE!” he yelled.
“Why the hell would I die on you?” I asked, opening my eyes.
“JUST STAY AWAKE! DON’T GO TO SLEEP YET!” James yelled.
I could hear him panting heavily as his legs propelled us forward underneath me.
I giggled. This was like a ride!
I could make money from this!
JAMES POTTER ROLLERCOASTER
WANT AN EXTREMELY FUN RIDE? THE BEST ROLLERCOASTER IN TOWN? WELL COME HAVE A GO ON THE NEW ATTRACTION; THE JAMES POTTER ROLLERCOASTER! HOPE INTO HIS ARMS AND FEEL HIM RUN AROUND THE CASTLE WITH YOU IN HIS ARMS. THE COST IS ONLY A GALLEON!
I would become so rich! So many girls would pay to have a go in –
SHIT NO! BITCHES TAKE A STEP BACK!
NO ONE TAKES A RIDE IN MY JAMES RIDE.
“Almost there,” I heard James pant.
“WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!” I squealed as we turned a corner.
“HELP! HELP ME!” James yelled as we ran into a room, “QUICK! PLEASE HELP ME!”
“What’s wrong?” an old lady said, running over.
“She’s hit her head really bad! She’s lost a lot of blood!” James cried.
“Can I sleep now Jam?” I slurred.
“No,” he said.
“BUT I WANT TO SLEEP!” I whined.
“Not yet dear…” the old lady said.
I giggled again.
“You’re so old!!”
The old lady scoffed and pulled us somewhere fetching other things.
“She’s been hit badly hasn’t she?”
“Very,” James said.
My eyelids dropped again, this time without warning or the action of me controlling them. They fell shut and I drifted into sleep, drifting away with voices yelling after me.
* * * * *
I was floating through sleep and the waking world.
I raced through dreams, some happy and some sad, but then sometimes I could hear people talking or just the noises of the waking world.
I could hear James and I wanted to wake, but my eyes refused to. They were as heavy as rocks.
Right now was one of the times were I was in between the waking world and sleep. I could hear people talking.
“James you need to sleep! You can’t stay around here forever,” one said.
“Yeah, you stink,” another said.
“I can’t leave her alone!” a familiar voice, James, said.
“You won’t be leaving her alone! I’ll stay with her!” the first voice said.
“I can’t leave her without me, she needs me!” James argued.
“No James! You need to sleep and shower, you look terrible and it’s true that you stink,” a third voice said.
“And the Quidditch team is suffering without you!” a fourth said.
“Go shower, sleep and coach your team James!” the fifth said.
“NO!” James said, “The whole team’s not there anyway,”
Silence engulfed the people around me and I was worried I was drifting into my dreams again. I wanted to stay here and listen to my friends.
“James, she’ll be fine,” the first whispered, “And the baby. Madam Pomphrey said they both were.”
James sniffled and I heard a chair move across the floor.
“I’m only sleeping for four hours, no more, no less. Then I’ll run a quick session and I’m coming right back,” James announced.
“Good,” four voices agreed in unison.
I felt someone squeeze me hand and lips pressed to my forehead.
“I love you Mae, wake up soon honey,” James whispered.
The warmth around my hand left and so did the lips on my forehead and I heard pairs of feet walk out of the room, from what I heard, four.
One people remained, but I did not know who.
“Wake up soon Mae, James needs you. We need you,” they whispered.
I smiled inside, but drifted away into another dream even though I protested.
* * * * *
The next time I could hear the world of the waking, the weights on my eyelids felt lighter. I pushed against my lids and they broke open showing the world around them.
I was in a very white room. It was that type of white that was blinding, it almost made me want to shut my eyes again. Everything in the room was white, the bedspread, the walls, the curtains, the bed frame, the floor and the roof.
That’s what made person sitting at my bed so noticeable.
