Things you need to consider:
If you were hurt badly, how would your mind react? Would it create for you a new world? Or would it retreat until your world was once again safe for you?
The mind is a fascinating thing. No one knows what its really capable of doing, or reacting. Many scientists have studied the brain, and many have their own theory regarding it.


Summer between Fifth year and Sixth Year
Hermione's Room

Turning off her bedroom light, Hermione wipes away the tears with the back of her hand. How stupid could he have been? Why did he have to taunt her? Chocking back a sob, she pulls back the linen on her bed. Sliding in between the bed sheets, Hermione says a quick prayer that Harry's doing all right.

Closing her tired eyes, she struggles with everything that has happened in the past three weeks. I can't believe that he's gone! Poor Harry, now who's going to tell him about his parents?

Slowly she drifts into sleep.
