“Yeah, she did kill his brother.”
“This is just karma getting back at her.”
“I wonder how Blair did it.”
“Yeah, he seemed so in love with Belle.”
“It has to be because of Albus.”
I banged my head down on the table.
“Owww.” I moaned, not raising my head.
Dom reached over and rubbed her hand up and down my back.
“Hey, it’ll be all right.” She said.
“I’m so over this bloody school.” I whined. “This year has been nothing but a shit fest for me and I am so over it.”
“It’ll be over soon.” Dom murmured. “Only a few more months until we graduate.”
I groaned. I was over the drama that circled around this year. I was over Blair and her mean antics. I was ready to just skip forward a few years and be set in life.
“Everyone, listen up!”
I looked up from the table to see Blair standing on top of the Gryffindor tables, her wand up to her throat to enhance it. I groaned again.
“So we all know Jamey and I are dating.” She said cheerfully. “So I want to announce a couples party in the Room of Requirements tonight!”
Where is a professor when you need one?
“Which means no single people allowed. Sorry Belle.”
Blair looked right at me, smiling sweetly. She was up to something.
“Plus, Jamey is supplying!”
I watched at James climbed up on the table next to Blair and wrap his arm around her waist, planting a kiss on her cheek. My mouth dropped open in shock.
“Oh my Merlin.” Dom gasped.
“What the fuck!” I screamed, storming out of my seat. “What the fuck did you do to him Blair!”
“Belle.” Blair said, pulling her wand away from her. “I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m sure you don’t want to cause a scene in front of everyone though.”
“What have you done to him?”
“Isabelle, you stupid little girl.” Blair laughed. “Jamey has been blinded by you. You distracted him from bigger and better things. Me.”
James kept his arm around Blair’s waist.
“James.” I said, looking up at him. “James, baby.”
James just kept looking at Blair, blinking every once in a while.
“Give it up Isabelle, you lost.” Blair said triumphantly.
“You cursed him you bloody bint!” I shouted.
“You better shut the hell up.” Blair hissed. “James and I are going to have fun at this party tonight. I’m going to turn him back to the James he was. You have done nothing but ruin his life. Killing his brother was the last straw.”
I opened my mouth to fire back an insult but nothing could come out of my mouth. Everyone knew that mentioning Al was a sensitive spot for me. Dom came up from behind me and grabbed my arm gently.
“Come on, we’ll figure something out.” Dom whispered.
I turned away from Blair and stormed out of the Great Hall, tears forming in my eyes. Dom followed behind me as I made my way up to Gryffindor Tower. Did she use a love potion on him? Or Dark Magic? I did think Blair would stoop to something so illegal over something so petty, but James was looking like he under the control of something.
“What the fuck is going on Dom?” I cried. “Has Blair lost her damn mind?”
“I don’t know Belle.” She said.
“I don’t understand what she’s doing.” I cried, letting the tears flow in the safety of our dorm. “Nothing makes sense.”
“We can find out at her party tonight.”
“How? She made it very clear that I wasn’t invited.” I said.
Dom just smiled. Why was she smiling? This was not a time to be happy.
“Well, there is one way.”
I don’t get where she’s going with this.
“The cloak Belle! James’s invisibility cloak.” She stated.
Of course, how could I forget about the cloak? James loved that stupid thing. He used it every chance he got…we used it a couple of times to get out of trouble with some prefects.
“Dom, you’re a genius! I totally forgot about the cloak. But how are we going to get it?” I asked.
“Freddie.” Dome said with a smile.
* * * * * * *
Convincing Freddie to go get the cloak for us was such an easy task. He did it with no questions asked. I sat on my bed, watching Dom as she got ready for this party.
“Who are you even going with?” I asked. “It’s a couple’s party Dom.”
“Oh.” She said, applying her red lipstick. “Dylan Haut. That Ravenclaw boy I’ve been talking to.”
“Ooo, go Dom.” I giggled, trying to lighten the mood.
“It’s nothing.” She brushed off. “Just make sure you’re right by my side so you can get in easily.”
“Understood.” I said.
I wrapped James’s invisibility cloak around me as we walked down to the common room. Dylan was waiting for Dom outside, having a pleasant conversation with the Fat Lady.
“You look lovely Dom.” Dylan said.
“Thanks.” She said.
I could see a slight blush rising in her cheeks. It was so adorable that I almost forgot about this mess we were talking into. The three of us made it up to the Room of Requirements. Dom and Dylan were approved by the goons guarding the door. I followed closely behind at Dom’s heels. Once inside, I scanned the room for James.
He was up front with Blair, that lovesick gaze still in his eyes. I still wasn’t sure what to do exactly. I wanted to hex the shit out of Blair. I couldn’t do that without giving myself away.
Or could I?
I carefully made my way through the crowd of people, keeping myself wrapped safely in the cloak. I stood behind some fourth-year student and poked the tip of my wand through the cloak. I aimed for Blair.
“Engorgio Skullus.” I muttered.
I quickly stepped away from the young student as Blair’s head enlarged. She screamed, drawing attention to herself. Some students screamed and some laughed at her. I walked around the room and poked my wand out again.
“Redactum Skullus.” I whispered, watching her head shrink back to normal size.
Blair spun around, trying to figure out who was hexing her. I pulled the cloak close to me.
“Who did this!” Blair yelled, having the music cut. “Just fess up.”
I made my way through the room again.
I suppressed a giggle as I walked Blair’s legs give out, falling on her bum.
“That’s it!” Blair screamed. “Someone better confess now!”
I watched as she tried to stand up but she just fell back down on her bottom. I was enjoying this.
“Uncurse James!” I called out. “Or give him the love potion antidote!”
I quickly moved so Blair couldn’t pinpoint my voice and where I was.
“Who said that!” She shouted.
I debated on if I should show myself or not. Making a snap decision, I yanked the cloak off me and glared down at Blair.
“I should’ve know it was you.” Blair sneered. “You’re so pathetic that you can’t accept the fact that James is over you.”
“Oh, please Blair, James would never love a horrible person like you.” I tossed back.
“Yes, he would!” Blair screeched.
“Give him the antidote Blair!” I cried, holding my wand up. “You can’t keep giving him a love potion forever.”
Everyone was silent, watching the showdown better Blair and me. I held my wand up threatening.
“What are you going to do Isabelle?” Blair taunted. “Kill me like you killed Albus?”
“I didn’t kill him!” I cried.
She hit a nerve.
I flicked my wand and sent a stinging hex right at her. Blair yelped out in pain.
“What the fuck!”
“I’m not messing around Blair. Give him the antidote.” I said in a low, threatening voice.
I sent another stinging hex her way and she yelped out in pain again. The other students stared at me in shock and fear.
“Fine!” Blair yelled. “Jamey, give me my bag.”
James grabbed Blair’s bag and she dug around in it. I watched her pull out a vial of clear liquid, the antidote. She popped the vial’s cap off and held the antidote up to James.
“Jamey, drink this.” She instructed.
James took the vial from her and tipped it back. Everyone watched silently as the potion began to take an effect on James. He slowly looked around the room at everyone.
“What’s going on?” He asked, very confused.
“James!” I cried out, running up into his arms.
“Belle…why am I in the Room of Requirements?” He asked, wrapping his arms around me.
“Well Blair over…” I trailed off. “Actually, nothing major happened. Why don’t we just get back to your dorm and rest?”
Blair looked at me, amazed by the fact that I didn’t rat her out. James nodded to my suggestion and we made our way out of the party.
“Are you sure nothing happened?” James asked as we walked down the corridor.
“I’m sure.” I said, kissing James’s cheek. “I just want to get back to your dorm and snuggle.”
“That sounds like a great idea.”
