After the horrible duel with Malfoy, Dumbledore was escorting us out, to his office or something. I didn't really know what was going on, I was rather dizzy. On the way, I did see Melinda and the boy from the train. And seeing him here made me remember everything. When I was a first year, I had the hugest crush on him. Andy Thomas, Gryffindor seeker. "M..Melinda? Is that you and Andy Thomas?" I asked. "Yeah, it's us." she said. After that, I passed out from the dizziness. Next thing I knew, I was in the hospital wing. Everything was blurry and I couldn't see very well. A girl with curly brown hair to her shoulders and dark eyes was dabbing my head with a wet towel, and 4 other students were with me. "Wh..Where am I?" I asked, "What's going on?" A girl with short dark hair and a Korean accent answered. "You are in the hospital wing. You passed out." I knew by her voice it was Tammi Li. Suddenly, I could see everything clearly. Jane Johansen was the girl with the towel. Melinda Zane was standing there with two other boys. One, a fifth year Hufflepuff with wildly curly hair. I'd met him only once, and he seemed nice. I didn't know his name though. The other was Andy. I wonder why they're here, they don't speak to me much. "Are you okay, Anne?" the Hufflepuff boy said, "I'm Darren, by the way. You probably don't remember me though." Now I remember. Last year we went to the Yule Ball together, but mainly as friends. "Oh, of course I remember you!" I said, gleaming. He is a great guy, I still kind of like him more than just as a friend. But he probably doesn't. I started daydreaming, until I heard Madame Pompfrey tell me to take my medicine. Jane, Andy, and Melinda had to leave for class, which was Gryffindors and Ravenclaws Transfiguration. I would have left too, if Madame Pompfrey hadn't kept me here. Amy and Atash ran in. "Anne! I heard about what happened! Oh my dead wizard gosh are you okay?" Amy spat out, rushing. "Amy, I'm fine. Don't you all have classes right now?" I replied groggily. Atash spoke up. "All of the Hufflepuffs have this period off. I think Ravenclaws have their off period next." Oh yeah, I forgot about off periods. They stayed with me for awhile, and then left me to rest. I'm glad I have mates like that. I just wonder what I can do for Andy and Melinda. They saved my life. I wouldn't be here right now if they weren't here for me.
As I was walking back from my first class, Arithmancy, I looked at my schedule. This period is an off period. I walked off to find Atash and talk to him, when I saw my best mate, Andy rush through with a Ravenclaw girl with long blonde hair. I stopped him, and asked him where he was going. "I'll tell you on the way, come on!" he said, and I went along with him. "Anne Carter was nearly killed by Draco Malfoy. We're going to see if she's okay." he told me. The three of us ran all the way there, to see Tammi Li and a Gryffindor girl with brown curly hair and brown eyes. Anne was asleep, so we whispered the whole time. I looked at both the blonde Ravenclaw and the Gryffindor girl and asked them who they were. The Ravenclaw was Melinda Zane and the Gryffindor was Jane Johansen. After awhile of waiting, Anne woke up. She seemed to still be groggy and not know who we were. "Are you okay?" I asked her, then told her who I was. She seemed to remember, considering we went to the Yule Ball together. I still like her, but I bet she doesn't. After a little bit, Melinda, Jane and Andy had to go, so it was just me, Tammi and Anne. All was quiet until Atash and Amy rushed in to check on Anne. Eventually, we had to leave for class. We said our goodbyes and left. I didn't want to, but I had to leave. Darn classes keeping me from my love.
I walked out of class, and looked at my schedule. Yipee, an off period! I grabbed my spectrospecs, a copy of the Quibbler, and began reading. As I was reading on how to make a butterbeer cork necklace to keep away nargles, when I had a strange feeling a friend of mine was hurt. I walked off to the hospital wing, wondering who it was. I sensed wrackspurts and thought it was Harry Potter, considering his head is full of wrackspurts. I was shocked to see one of my close friends, Anne Carter laying there asleep. "Are you okay?" I whispered, even though she probably didn't hear me. "Madame Pompfrey, what happened to Anne?" I asked. She told me that Draco started a duel with her an later on she passed out. Draco Malfoy. I really dislike that mean guy. I decided to make her a butterbeer cork necklace and some hot cocoa. When I finished, I walked back to the hospital wing and set it on her bedside table. Peter Mendel was there and we chatted for awhile until we had to leave for class. He seemed like a nice boy. I wondered why I never talked to him. Maybe I should sometime soon. Oh well, I thought. I walked off happily to my next class, Divination. I really don't see why people don't like Professor Trealweny, she's a rather nice lady.
After about an hour of sleeping, I woke up and looked at my surroundings. It took me a minute to remember that I was in the hospital. I looked at my bedside table to see a butterbeer cork necklace and some hot cocoa. I took a sip of the cocoa. It was still warm. I'm guessing whoever made it was just here. There was also a note on the table reading, "Hello Anne! I left you this butterbeer cork necklace to keep the nargles away," I stopped reading for a second. It was surely Luna, I should've known by the handwriting. I kept on reading, "and I made this hot cocoa for you. It should help you feel better, which I really hope it does. Come back to the common room soon, but take your time to feel better! A full recovery would be great. Love you my friend, in the most heterosexual way, Luna Lovegood." Aww, how sweet of her. I chuckled at the ending. Oh, the great jokes and fun times we have. Luna is a sweet girl. People shouldn't make fun of her, even if she doesn't care. I asked Madame Pompfrey if I could leave now and she let me go. I looked at my schedule. Our choice classes are going on right now. I have a Arithmancy. I skipped off to class. The halls were quiet and empty. I guess everyone has classes right now. I walked in and snuck into the classroom, trying to be unnoticed. That didn't go too smoothly. "Anne! You're okay!" A boy with blonde hair and brown eyes said and ran up to me. It was Peter Mendel. He hugged me, and I just kinda stood there awkwardly. "Uhm, yeah I am?" I asked, very confused. "Oh, I heard about what happened to you." he told me. I was shocked that so many people knew. Even Hermione Granger, whom I don't speak to much, gave me a hug. Then, our professor saved me from hug overload and got the class to quiet down. In all of this, my heart was just warmed. I didn't know that so many people cared for me. I guess I would've done the same of any of the people I know, even Nen Akl, was almost killed by someone. I just hope that Haliegh and Eva are okay.
*~-SLIGHT TIME LAPSE BETWEEN CLASS TO DINNER-~*.
At the end of the day, I was happy to get out of class for once. I ran down to the hospital wing and asked Madame Pompfrey if I could see Anne. "She already left. She's fine now." Phew. I'm glad she's okay, but feel bad I didn't get to see her. My stomach growled, and I decided I'd see her in the Great Hall at dinner. I walked in slowly and spotted her at the Ravenclaw table and ran to her. "Anne!" I yelled at her, hugging her from behind. "Thank goodness you're okay!" She turned around and gave me a hug. I smiled as she said, "Of course I am, you silly!" I smiled and then walked off to my table. I was happy to see we were having Mexican night. I sat between Jane Johansen and Sam Mendel. "Hey, Saffron!" Jane said to me. I said Hello to her, and we talked for a bit. I like Jane, she's sweet. We walked to the common room together, and on the way there saw Ginny Weasley. "Hey Ginny! How's it going?" Jane said with a smile. "I... I've been better." Ginny replied with a sigh. We continued walking. "If you don't mind me asking, what's wrong?" I asked, deciding to join in their conversation. Jane told the passcode, Mimbulus Mimbletonia, to the fat lady and we walked into the Gryffindor common room. "Do you mind.." Ginny replied, looking at all the people, "If we can talk about it somewhere more private?" So, the three of us walked to the room where the girls in our year stay. I was rather tired, so I passed out on my bed the moment I got in. I just kept hoping Jane would tell me in the morning.
Today, September 2nd was rather wild, even for the first day of classes. The beginning of the day was totally normal. Wake up, eat breakfast, then go to class. After class was a whole different story. I packed my bag up with my books and quill and headed out the door. I looked at my schedule. I had about 5 free minutes, so I decided to see Madame Pompfrey and help her. I walked into the Hospital Wing. "Hello Madame Pompfrey! How can I-" I started to ask, until I saw my close friend, Anne Carter laying in one of the hospital beds, passed out. "You can help out Carter, Miss Johansen." Madame Pompfrey replied, seeing me staring at Anne. "Wha... What happened?" I asked her, but she just walked off to someone else. I grabbed a towel, and wet it with warm water. I put it on her head, I knew it would help. Luckily, I wasn't bored while watching over her. Tammi Li, one of my Hufflepuff friends came in, followed by Andy Turner and Melinda Zane. There was another boy with wildly curly hair and dark eyes. He really reminded me of Harry Potter. I don't know what it is about him, he just does. Eventually, I learned that his name is Darren Criss. Never heard of him in my life. We talked for a bit, and Anne woke up. I still had the towel on her head. "Wh.. Where am I?" she asked. Tammi told her she's in the hospital wing. Then, our extra time was up and Andy, Melinda and I had to leave for Transfiguration. I assumed that this was Hufflepuff's off period. Transfiguration was fun but I couldn't help but think of Anne. Luckily, when all of my classes were over I saw her in the Great Hall just as happy as ever. I sat next to Saffron Daniels and Nen Akl. Saffron and I both ate chicken fajitas, and Nen simply ate a Cheese Quesadilla. I talked to Saffron while we ate, and we walked back to the common room together. Ginny Weasley, looking very sad, walked with us. "Hey Ginny! How's it going?" I asked her, trying to cheer her up. It obviously didn't work. "I've been better.." she replied, sighing. "If you don't mind me asking, what's wrong?" Saffron asked her. I was glad she joined in, because I don't like talking to sad people. That ended fast. Once we got into the 4th Year girl's bedroom on the Gryffindor tower, Saffron fell asleep and I was left with Ginny. "So, what's bugging you, Ginny?" I asked. "It's Harry! I love him, but he loves that Cho girl!" Ugh. Relationship troubles those are the worst. "I'm so sorry. I wish I could help." I told her. "Oh you're so sweet. " Ginny sighed between sobs. I decided to just go to sleep. "I'll tell Saffron in the morning, maybe she can help," I thought. What a crazy day. I just hoped tomorrow would be kinder to everyone
