After my weird encounter with Snape, I decided to take it easy for a while. For the rest of the day, random people were walking up to me congratulating me about Snape. Some were even asking me if I could make them a love potion. I denied, of course, but I couldn 't help but admit the encouragements were quite nice. None of my other classes were eventful in the slightest though.
Defence Against the Dark Arts with Professor Quirrel was quite boring, and he was- quite different- I guess one could say. Don 't get me wrong, I 'm cool with being yourself and being an individual and stuff, but he kind of gave me the creeps. Yet again, so did Snape, so it 's probably just a Hogwarts Professor trait or something. I just think …show more content…
I knew she 'd be in her normal spot at the Gryffindor, so I began to walk over to her when I saw Draco and his dweebs talking to Harry.
Ugh, I do not want to deal with him today, but I 'll do it to help out Harry.
"Midnight, all right? We 'll meet you in the trophy room; that 's always unlocked," Draco said to Harry. As he was walking away from Harry, he ran into me. "Oh, hey Amalia. Did you miss me?" He winked.

Hannah had a sad look on her face as she looked down. I couldn 't help but feel some guilt as realised she wasn 't the until I came along.
"I 'm sure she 'll come around and start acting like herself again," Justin reassured. It seemed to cheer Hannah up a little bit, but I wasn 't so sure.
They went back to their rooms, asking me to come with them, but I dismissed them and decided to stay in the common room until I had to inspect what was going on with Harry. It would save me the trouble of trying to stay quiet when I leave anyway. As they left, I just had one passing thought that I dismissed as quickly as it came.
I just want to be normal, but I guess that 's too much to ask
