Bright lights flashed in the corridor. Red sparks, then purple, and some golden. Rose ducked down so she wouldn't get hit with any spells.

She'd been walking to class when Scorpius Malfoy had insulted her, prompting Al to duel with him. She was so frustrated that they always fought; and she just really wanted to get to class. Taking out her own wand she cast a shield charm on both of them.

"Stop fighting already! I'm so sick of this!" she shouted.

They both looked at her in confusion. She rolled her eyes, picked up her bag and walked to Defense Against the Dark Arts. Rose hated it when Al dueled with Malfoy, Zabini, and Nott. He had even brought her poor brother into the pointless vendetta. Al had started the first fight and that had been three years ago. Still, she couldn't blame him her cousin for hating their family. They were vile people.

The lesson went by very quickly. Rose earned 20 points for Gryffindor. She headed back to the Common Room to see her friends and extensive family.

"Rose! Al said you intervened in a duel." Lily said.

Lily and Hugo were new to concept of the vendetta and therefore became increasingly worried every time Al got into a fight.

"Yeah, well I was going to be late for class and that was the third fight this week. I didn't want to be in the middle of one." she answered back.

"That's the third fight this week? It's only Monday!" Lily exclaimed

Just then, Al burst into the room.

"What were you thinking?" he demanded.

Rose stood up tall against him. "That I'm tired of the fighting, Al."

"I was winning that fight. And what do you mean you're tired of the fighting? We hate Malfoy." He said.

"If I recall things correctly, Al, you're the one that started the very first fight in the first year; because you were the one to insult him first." Rose argued

"Are you actually standing up for that git?" he asked. The look on his face was that of betrayal. He continued "Our parents hated them; they are our natural enemies."

"Well maybe it's better if times changed. I'd like to walk down the corridors without being attacked in any shape or form!"she yelled.

Al was about to yell back when James cut into the conversation.

"She's right, Al." he said.

Rose was stunned. James was the voice of reason in the family, even though Al never listened to him.

"I am?" she asked, eying him suspiciously.

James raised an eyebrow at her and she regained her composure.

"See, Al? I am right" she said before going to bed.
