Chapter One: First Day in the New Class
"Today, we'll be studying the makeup of a wizarding family. I have paired you up into groups accordingly, so that you can demonstrate with each other what a model couple would be like. You'll plan out what your house looks like, your future jobs, your incomes, and whether or not you'll have kids. You'll be looking into different lifestyles and seeing the differences between them. Pay attention while I call out groups." The new Lifestyle's teacher instructed. Dumbledore had apparently decided that Hogwarts needed a teacher like this. God only knows why.
Harry Potter watched in a bored fashion as the new teacher, Mrs. Jewel, assigned the class into pairs. He couldn't help but pay attention when he noticed that most of the class was paired up and he wasn't. Why, there could only be about four people left... Susan, Draco, Crabbe, and him. But... that couldn't be right. Harry must have ticked the people off wrong in his mind, right? There was only one girl, and three guys. How would that work? He must have made a mistake.
"Susan and Crabbe," the teacher all but sang, "And now, for our very last couple..."
Harry felt like he was about to be sick. He glanced around the room, noticing that his best friends looked the same. But not for the same reasons. Ron had been paired up with Pansy Parkinson, and Hermione had been put with Blaise Zabini. They had plenty of reason to look sick without his problem. They were stuck with Slytherins, enough said.
"Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy."
And now, so was he.
