Chapter 3 – Finished
After Potions class was Transfiguration with Dumbledore. As seventh years, they were supposed to be transfiguring a needle into a living tortoise. It was the first lesson, on the subject, but for some reason, it had just been added to the syllabus, making it something he had never tried before. It took him four tries, but he was still ahead of everyone around him.
Except her. She was sitting with the two Gryffindors. The other transfer students. And there was already more than one perfect tortoise on her desk. There were three. Inwardly seething, he listened to the praise given to her that should have been his. He vowed that he would never come in second again.
Little did he know that this would only be the first time she beat him in class.
