Disclaimer: Harry Potter is created by J.K. Rowling.
Great Hall, after the Welcoming Feast.
The voice belongs to Draco Malfoy.
Harry Potter turns.
The Slytherin smiles. "Have you heard?"
The Gryffindor glares. "Heard what?"
"My dad is out of Azkaban."
"So you better watch your back."
"Fine." Harry turns away.
"That's all you're going to say?"
Boy Who Lived faces him again. "It's all I need to say to you."
Draco is annoyed.
Harry is pleased.
Draco smirks again. "Be careful with what you say to me, Potter, I had a very educational summer."
Harry thinks, Dark Arts, no doubt. "You pose no threat, Malfoy"
The Slytherin is incensed.
The Gryffindor is calm.
Draco raises his his wand. "Malev--"
In one fluid motion, Harry grabs Draco's wand hand and subjects him to the Aikido yonkyo grasping technique.
It's Harry's turn to smile. "I had a very educational summer, too."
The Gryffindor Seeker releases the pale-haired boy.
The Slytherin Seeker staggers.
They exchange hate-filled glares.
They part ways.
So begins their sixth year in Hogwarts.
No one expected anything less.
