Chapter Two: The Best Friend
Over treacle tart, crown roast, cooked carrots, and other delicacies, Liberty and I spilled evrything. She too had lost a relative- her brother. He was in his fourth year, and thought he could take on a seventh year slytherin in their neighborhood, and he was blown to pieces.
Liberty was very pretty. She looked like her mother, Cho. She was exceptionally talented at Qudditch, and she expected to be a Chaser. She told me I was just the build for a Seeker. I'd try out. It seemed we'd been sorted by our looks and brains.
" Oooh, there's Lorcan and Lysander," she giggled, looking at the Scamander twins.
She was also a desperate flirt. Out of bravery, she ran and kissed Lorcan, who looked extremely confused.
The next day, we had potions. We were supposed to be working on Amortenia, but I was allowed my own special project. This project would involve concocting a potion that turned Magnolia's hair green- the day before a Gryffindor versus Slytherin match!!!
I could hear Magnolia's screams as she looked in the mirror. Liberty and I looked at each other and laughed. I found out last night that she keeps a picture of Lorcan under her pillow. Funny thing- I keep a picture of Lysander under mine!
I felt like without ADa , Liberty had replaced that gap. I know it was wrong to think that, but maybe, just maybe, I'd found a friend. Or not.
