“Ok everybody!” Sirius said to us the morning after Harry saved Hermione, “No weird dreams last night right?”
We all looked at each other.
“No, I guess not.” I told him.
“Good, because I’m tired of you guys being so scared of things all of the time, today, Kirsten and I have to go visit Dumbledore for an hour, he really needs us, and we are going to have to leave you here.” Sirius told us.
“But cant we just go with you?” Mon asked.
“You cannot apparate yet and we don’t want to take any extra time then we have to, you will be alright.” Kirsten told us reassuringly.
“Ok, guys there right, they were just dreams, and nothing’s going to happen!” Harry said.
“Your right Harry!” Hermione said standing next to him.
“Good now that this is agreed we have to go.” Sirius said and without another word he was gone.
“Bye kids, be careful!” Kirsten said then she was gone too.
“So what do you girls want to do?” I asked.
“Um, I don’t know, why don’t we have Harry teach us all how to surf!” Mon said cheerfully.
“Lets do that another day, I’m ok with getting in the water just not without an adult around.” Hermione said gloomily.
“She’s right I’m not comfortable with her getting in the water yet either.” Harry said.
“I know why don’t we go on a picnic?” Herm asked.
“Good idea, we cant stay in this tent forever!” I said.
“I’ll conjure a basket!” Harry said.
“We’ll do the food!” The girls said.
“And I’ll sit on my big butt and watch!” I said laughing and sitting down.
“Ronald Weasley you get that big but over here and help us or I will tell them what you were doing last night in your sleep when you thought nobody was watching!” Mon laughed.
“Hey!” I ran over to them and blushed slightly and started cutting apple and putting it into bags.
A few minutes later I carried a very heavy picnic basket out to a beautiful spot on the beach. Ron laid down a big blanket and through a muggle Frisbee he brought on the ground.
The girls opened the picnic basket and pulled out four plates, four cups, and a canteen. They put big sandwiches on the plates as well as chips. They poured water into the glasses from the canteen and the got out brownies cooling in another bag and put them out.
“How did you make the brownies so quickly?” I asked.
“Well we used a cooking charm and heated the bag so they would stay warm.” Mon explained.
“Smart, very smart!” I told her.
“It was Herm’s idea!” She said smiling.
“Figured!” I laughed.
All of a sudden I heard a strange voice coming from nowhere. I looked at Herm who had questioning in her eyes.
“What the?” Ron started to ask.
“Shh” I tried to quiet him.
“I don’t know Goyle I heard him a minute ago.” Crab’s voice from nowhere was coming.
“Shut up you idiot they are going to hear you!” Malfoy whispered.
Suddenly their body’s started to appear.
I quickly pulled out my wand ready to duel Malfoy, Crab, and Goyle.
“Girls run!” Ron shouted also taking out his wand.
“I don’t think so, Crab get them!” Malfoy shouted.
The girls started to scream as Crab picked up Mon, and Herm.
“Let them go!” I yelled.
All of a sudden he apparated away.
“Crusio!” I yelled pointing my wand at Malfoy.
“Ha, you think that little curse is going to hurt me?” He laughed walking closer to me.
“Jakiona Bindando!” He yelled. All of a sudden my body was bonded together and I couldn’t move.
“Goyle, you get the Weasel!” Malfoy yelled.
“Ron watch out!” I tried to yell but Malfoy grabbed me and put his hand over my mouth.
I looked and saw Ron quickly being grabbed by Goyle from behind. Before I knew what was happening to us we were in a dark room. It reminded me of a jail cell that I once saw in the Daily Prophet. I looked around and found Ron sitting next to me. Hermione and Monique all the way across the cell crying, and Malfoy, Crab, and Goyle were gone!
I stood up finding that the binding spell was taken away and walked over to Hermione and put my arm around her. She leaned her head against my chest and sunk slowly to the floor. I sat with her; our back leaned up against the wall.
“I knew it!” Ron yelled stomping the floor.
“You knew what?” Mon growled at him, apparently pretty P.O.’d.
“I knew that this dream would become a reality, this sucks!” Ron yelled walking over to Mon.
“Sorry I yelled, I’m just really mad, we should have not ever left the tent.” She said hugging Ron.
“Don’t worry guys, we will find our way out of this mess.” I told them trying to stay calm.
“How Harry, How are you going to get us out of this place?” Hermione asked.
“I don’t know.” I told her honestly.
“Wow, for once the wonder boy doesn’t have a plan!” Ron remarked.
“Shut up Ron, I’m only human.” I told him.
“Sometimes I wonder about that.” He said coolly.
“What is that supposed to mean?” I yelled.
“It mean’s that you are the freakiest thing I have ever heard of, you always have a solution, you can always survive you-know-who, you are one of the best wizards in the world and your only seventeen years old, everything is about you, you, you1” He shouted.
“No, you’re wrong.” I said after I took it all in.
“What do you mean I’m wrong?” He asked sitting in the far corner opposite from me.
I stood up and walked towards him, “You are the one who helped me all of those times I defeated Voldemort, you also can survive him, you help me come up with all of my plans, you are only seventeen and a far better wizard then I am, You were always there for me, you always helped me, you were and still are my best friend.” I told him sitting down next to him.
He looked up at me with tears in his eyes. “You mean it, I really am that good?” He asked.
“Of course you are. You still my best friend?”
“If you’ll have me!” He smiled at me.
“I’ll have you!” I told him smiling.
“Now that you boys are all made up can we please make up a plan to get out of here?” Mon asked.
“Yea, good idea, lets get started.” I told them walking back to the girls who were sitting on the floor next to each other.
That night they decided to sleep on it and think of plans early the next morning.
“How are we supposed to sleep on this hard floor?” Ron complained.
“Uh Ron have you forgotten something?” Hermione asked.
“What?” He asked.
“How to use a wand!” She laughed.
“Oh yea!” Ron laughed with her then conjured Mon and himself a mattress as I did the same.
“You would think Malfoy would be smarter and take away my wand, but nope he had to be the ferret he always is!” I said to Hermione lying down next to her on the mattress.
“Yes well he always was pretty thick.” She told me, “Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to try and get some sleep, I doubt I’ll be able to because I am really worried about us right now but its worth a shot.”
“Yes I agree, goodnight love.” I told her.
“Goodnight.” She said wrapping her arms around my neck and pulling me into a very passionate kiss.
“I love you.” I told her once we broke.
“I love you too, I’m glad you’re here to protect me!” She whispered.
“Don’t worry Herm, I’ll never leave you.” I told her sincerely.
“Now try and stop worrying your pretty little head off and get some sleep.” I whispered as I wrapped my arm around her waist.
She snuggled in close to me and closed her eyes and slowly fell asleep. I stayed up for a long time looking out the tiny cell window thinking about what might happen to us tomorrow.
