¸„ø¤º°¨ BREWING TROUBLE¨°º¤ø„¸
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Scotland
February 14th, Valentine's Day
Somewhere in Hogwarts, a potion was being brewed. No, not by the Potions master Professor Snape, but by the unlikeliest candidate ever, the Defense-Against-The-Dark professor, Gilderoy Lockhart. It was valentine's day and he had planned the perfect surprise for his students, a love potion. And not just any love potion, Amortentia, the most powerful love porion in the world.
He had a copy of "Potions for All Occasions" by Samuela J. Biggins open in front of him and he was cutting valerian roots as the book had suggested. The ingredients had not been hard to get at all as Professor Snape had everything in his supply closet. But he had looked at Lockhart suspiciously when he had heard the ingredients, though he hadn't said anything.
Unfortunately, he wasn't one to follow instructions perfectly, and thus he had chopped up very small pieces of the roots where the book had said to cut long slices. As he was adding the ingredients he had thought of the other idea which had occurred to him earlier today. He had met with Professor Trelawney, and told her, as part of the valentine spirit, to predict their soul mates. She had been very excited at the prospect, God bless her. He really must ask her, how it went after her class.
His thoughts were brought back to the present by the new song "Owl Me Your Love" a popular hit by the Shrieking Sisters. As he was tapping his foot along with the song, he noticed something was wrong with his potion. For one it was brown and frothing instead of clear and bubbling. And for another it was growing. Growing and spilling out from the sides of the cauldron. "I guess it wasn't such a good idea to listen to the radio while brewing such a complicated potion" was all he could think of.
He took out his wand to do damage control, and control the spillage, but he could never remember the spells. He hit the cauldron with one he thought was right, but the potion turned fiery red, and started emitting a fowl smell instead. The smell filled the room within seconds.
Harry, Ron and Hermione made their way to their Divination's class on the seventh floor. This was a class they always dreaded, specially Hermione. But even they weren't prepared for the spectacle that befell them. The class had been transformed, if that was the way to put it. The walls were adorned with red shaped hearts, and there were house-elfs dressed as cupids flying around in the air. Hermione's heart immediately went out to them.
Both Ron and Harry tip-toed out of sight of Hermione. They didn't want another lecture on the "ill treatment of House-Elfs by the wizards". As they took their seats, Professor Trelawney walked in. Everybody couldn't stop staring at her, she wore bloody red dress robes that would have looked great on another but made her look like a beetle, specially with her oversized spectacles.
"Hello Children", she spoke in that high-pitched squeaky voice of hers that always drove Ron insane, "today being valentine's day, why don't I look at each one of your hands and tell you about your soul mates?" making Lavender and Parvati coo and giggle in delight.
"First you Miss Patil" she said as Trelawney took her seat at her table and took Parvati's hand in her own. "I see a proposal from a sandy haired boy in the near future" causing Seamus to blush, he being the only sandy haired boy in the room.
"What about me Miss Trelawney?" shrieked Lavender almost thrusting her hand in Trelawney's hand, to which Ron whispered "Despo" a little too loudly.
"Ah! Miss Brown. I see you have some feelings for a hufflepuff boy for some time now. Rest assured the feelings are mutual." Lavender almost fell off her seat and had to be helped back by Parvati.
"So who's next? Perhaps… Mr. Malfoy!" She said pointedly to Draco who wasn't paying attention, rather was busy staring out of the window. Draco got up and took his seat in front of Trelawney with his usual smug look upon his face.
"Beneath this tough exterior, lies a heart that yearns for someone. I never thought you would fall for a Griffindor. Love works in strange ways Mr. Malfoy, Strange ways indeed."
"But that's bullshit!"
"Mr. Malfoy. I would certainly appreciate if you would care not to use such language in my class. And also not doubt my talents."
Malfoy leaned closer to Trelawney and whispered "Who?" dreading the answer.
But Trelawney never got to answer Malfoy's question as at that moment Gilderoy Lockhart burst through the door, pushed Malfoy aside, took Trelawney into his arms and kissed her full on the lips.
"I think I'm gonna be sick!" was all Ron could mutter.
This is just the beginning. Lots of horror hookups. You're gonna love it. Please Review.
