Notes: I never figured out where to go with this, but I liked how I started it, so here ya go.

More Notes: Draco? It's my Draco. Which means he's way. Way, way way out of character. Deal.

Aurors: A Little water never hurt anyone



Raining.

Typical.

What else could we expect.

They rowed in two separate boats, naturally.

The blond young man glanced to the other boat and smirked devilishly.

"Don't, Malfoy."

He stared pleading gray eyes at the brunette next to him. "Brown…"

The tall red-head leaning over the edge of their boat snickered. "C'mon, Lavender. Let him."

"Yeah," Draco said. "Let him!"

"It's mean," Lavender replied. "And they hate us enough as it is."

The red-head glanced to the other boat where three women were glaring at him ruthlessly.

He gave them a charming smile and waved.

This only made them glare harder.

I glided in-between them, and looked from one boat to the other. "Why can't you children ever leave each other alone?"

"I'm trying," the redhead replied, putting up his over-sized hands in defense. "I smiled."

The blond girl in the other boat glared. "Sod off, Weasley."

Another charming smile. "Come on, Sally-Anne, can't we be friends, like?"

Lavender smirked and patted the redhead on the back. "Let it be, Ron. They won't budge."

Draco smiled again. "I can make them budge." He turned to me. "Can I make them budge?"

I sighed. "Malfoy…" I looked up at the castle ahead. "We're almost there."

"Why couldn't we have taken the carriages?" A brunette girl from next to Sally-Anne asked. "It's raining."

"Brilliant observation, Lisa," Draco snap. "Did you have help or did you figure that out all on your own?"

Ron snorted in amusement.

"Sod off, Malfoy," the raven-haired woman across from Lisa and Sally-Anne snarled.

"Oh, Cho, right here, Baby?"

I shook my head. "Shut it, the lot of you!"

"Yes, Mummy," Ron smiled.

"Are we there yet?!" Draco cried.

"I have to go to the loo!" Ron complained.

"Lavender's on my side!" Draco wined.

"Am not!" Lavender laughed.

"Are so!"

"Am not!"

"You are! Moody!"

I snarled. "What will make you three stop?!"

"Let me make 'em budge!" Draco cried.

Cho shook her head. "Alistair…"

Ron began shaking the boat. "My leg's asleeeeeep!" he laughed.

They weren't leaving me much choice. No one would get hurt… just wet…

I sighed.

Lisa glared at me. "You can't be serious."

I smirked at Ron, Draco and Lavender.

To the Wizarding world, they were just three more of my students. To the trio of girls in the other boat, they were three big pains in the ass.

To me?

They were three of the most incredible, driven, dedicated kids I'd ever met. In the year I'd taught them, they'd become like my own children. I shared their triumphs and defeats. Cleaned wounds, and forced sense into them.

This did not mean they didn't still have a lot of growing up to do.

I shook my head. "Go ahead."

The girls screamed as Draco lifted his wand, uttered a few words, and flipped the girls' boat over.

Ron smiled. "Ah… my leg's awake!"

I sighed as we approached the castle. It was going to be a long, long week.
