Authors Note: I am soooooooooooooooo sssssssssooooooorrrrrrrryyyyyy! So sorry for the long wait! Now on with Chapter 5.
Harry woke up groggily. The previous night's dream still fresh on his mind. He looked toward Ron, whom was still sleeping. Harry knew that Ron would want to know what the dream was about, and no doubt Hermione would want to know about it too. Harry sighed; he did know that he had to tell Dumbledore about his dream. Ron woke up beside him with a large yawn. They both got ready for the first breakfast of the year at Hogwarts, and headed down to the Great Hall seeing that Hermione was not in the Common Room.
"What was your dream about last night? Did it have anything to do with You-Know-Who?" Ron asked as they walked the labyrinth of hallways at Hogwarts.
"Yes, but I don't want to go into much detail until we meet up with Hermione." Harry answered.
"Are you going to tell Professor Dumbledore about it?"
"I think I should, but he seems to be ignoring me lately." Harry said in irritation. Ron looked at Harry and then to the floor. They entered the Great Hall to a wave of noise. It was still early in the morning, but the Great Hall was already alive with activity. Some of the students noticed them when they entered, but soon turned back to their own conversations. Harry looked around and saw that all of the teachers were there except for Professor Umbridge. He saw that Alfred and Matthew were missing, but he thought nothing of it. The twin brothers probably got lost in the halls of Hogwarts. Looking toward the Gryffindor table he saw Hermione sitting there reading a book.
"Hey, Hermione." Harry greeted. Hermione looked up from her book. She frowned.
"Harry, are you OK?' You look much stressed." Hermione stated.
"Don't worry, I'm fine, really. I just had a dream." Hermione looked at Harry quizzically.
"It was about You-Know-Who, wasn't." Harry looked down at the ground. Ron nodded his head, "I see. What was your dream about, Harry?" Hermione asked.
"Voldemort was-" Harry was interrupted by a high pitched scream. Alfred ran into the hall screaming. Matthew ran behind him with a terrified look on his face. Alfred and Matthew ran up toward Professor Kirkland, and hid behind him. Professor Kirkland looked beyond annoyed as he glared at his siblings.
"What is wrong with you two?" Professor Kirkland asked.
"The toad lady's after us!" the twins said in unison.
"What toad lady?" the young professor inquired. All of the sudden Professor Umbrigde came through the doors of the Great Hall. Her once pink dress was now spattered with blue paint. She looked ready to kill.
"That toad lady!" Alfred screamed. They both tried to hide behind Professor Kirkland, but it was too late, Umbridge had already seen them. She marched up to the teachers' table, and pulled the two out from behind the island nation.
"You two have to answer for this!" She pointed toward her pink dress which was now covered in blue paint. Arthur raised a giant eyebrow at the paint.
"Where on Earth did you get the blue paint?" he asked his brothers, completely ignoring Umbridge. The twins looked at each other grinned, and then looked back at England.
"Twins in our House gave us the paint. They said that if we painted her ugly dress we would get a special discount in their soon to be prank shop." the twin brothers answered simultaneously. At the Gryffindor Table Fred and George Weasley grinned mischievously at their new apprentices.
"Mum's going to have a cow at you two." Ron told his brothers. They just waved him off, enjoying the show.
"I demand that they be punished! Two weeks of detention with me should suffice." Professor Umbridge spat out. Umbrigde grinned to herself at the thought of their detention. Professor Kirkland glared at her; he sensed the harm she intended to force on his brothers.
"Professor Umbridge, with all due respect, my brothers are my responsibility. I will see to it that they will be properly punished for their actions. There is no need for you to waste your time with their detention." he told her calmly in his most polite voice. However, there was still a hint of hostility in his voice.
"Professor Kirkland, there is no need to worry. Your brothers are in good hands with me in detention. I doubt one as young as you can know the requirements the Ministry has set for discipline." she turned toward Alfred and Matthew," You two will report to me for detention after class today." After that she smiled once again to herself, and Professor Kirkland was sending a glare that could rival Professor Snape's her way. The Great Hall slowly regained a level of normalcy. The mail came in with the swooping of owls into the Great Hall. Professor McGonagall started to hand out the class schedules.
"Harry, before we were interrupted, you were telling us about your dream last night." Hermione reminded Harry. Harry quickly gave a summary of his dream. At the part where he explained how Voldemort was after the nations Hermione and Ron raised an eyebrow. Harry grew very irritated with them.
"You see, Voldemort thinks they exist so they have to exist."
"Harry, there is also the possibility that You-Know-Who is wrong." Ron stated.
"Ron, they do exist. It's something that I can't explain. It's like something is telling me in my heart that I know they exist, and we have to warn them." Harry argued.
"What do you think 'Mione?" Ron asked Hermione. She was in deep thought.
"Harry, did you say that if someone could control them then that person would have complete control over the country they represent?"
"We should not take this likely. There is a chance that they do exist, a slim one, but still a chance. If witches and wizards exist why not the personifications. If He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named was able to find one of them then we would be in great danger because then her would have complete control over that country. There is one thing that confuses me. If there are personifications, then why haven't they been involved in the wizard world? Wouldn't we have seen some evidence of them?" Harry looked at Hermione unable to answer her question.
Professor McGonagall handed them their schedules. Harry saw that he had double Potions, History of Magic, Divination, and double Defense Against the Dark Arts. Harry looked at Hermione and saw that she was very happy to see that they had Professor Kirkland today, but Professor Umbridge worried Harry. That day at classes he would both of the new teachers at Hogwarts, and hopefully Professor Kirkland was good because Harry was sure that Professor Umbridge wasn't.
I'm sorry that I had to end it like that. Hopefully the next chapter will come up soon. I will post after I've updated my other fan fic. I didn't have and time to really edit it because I'm so short on time because of school. The next chapter will be longer, I promise. Do you guys want me to post exerts of an original story I'm writing? R&R
