Loved You First (Hogwarts love story).

So, this originally started out as a group story, but one of the writers won't write her chapter, blah blah– I made this on, so I hope it's okay. :)


Chapter 15

Mondays are the worst. Honestly... they are worse than blast ended screwts– and trust me, we've had the unfortunate luck of having to deal with those. But Mondays and I don't mix very well together. For one thing I have charms first thing, which sucks! Secondly, I have double potions right after, and thirdly, a lot of girls were glaring at me. It made me feel rather self-conscious and uncomfortable. I mean, honestly, I don't say this often, but they needed to grow up.

I sat beside Carter, a Ravenclaw boy, in Charms. I didn't talk to him often, but he seemed nice. Eleanor and Rose sat across from me and I had a feeling they could sense I was getting irritated as they gave cold looks to the glaring and whispering girls.

When the bell rang for first class to be over I couldn't have got out of the class quick enough. I know the whispering and glaring would die down eventually... I hope. The girls were just annoyed because James, Alex and Fred were all taken by someone and now they could no longer flirt with them. I shook the thought of some of the girls flirting with Fred because it made me feel jealous.

"Hey! Mia, wait up," said a male voice from behind me. Shocked to hear him calling me, I turned to face Albus. He came to a stop beside me. "I wanted to say I'm sorry for dissing your apology before." He frowned. "I know now you meant it when you said you were sorry. I was just pissed off with James and all of... you for pranking me." He gave me sincere smile. "We cool?"

"Of course, Albus," I replied, shocked that he had even accepted my apology. I hadn't expected him to do that at all.

"Want to go to potions now?" He tilted his head in the direction that my friends had just gone. I nodded and we began to walk towards the dungeons. We didn't say anything for a few minutes. I looked to the ground avoiding the stares of some of the girls. "So... You and Fred?"

"Me and Fred," I confirmed.

"I guess I'll probably be seeing you over the Christmas holidays then?" I nodded and gave him a curious look. "Fred told me that you were staying with him at their house. I'll be going to the Ballycastle Bats match with you, too. Although, I can't say I'll be supporting BCB." He gave me a teasing smile and I chuckled nervously. I had never really talked to Albus that much before so I wasn't sure exactly what to say to him– he seemed to be carrying on the conversation mostly anyway. He noticed a few girls glaring at me. "I see you've made yourself a few enemies, anyway."

"They've been doing that since yesterday when they found out about Fred and I," I mumbled, looking again to the ground.

"Meh." He shrugged his shoulders. "They'll undoubtedly get over it eventually."

By now we were making our way down the stairs to the Dungeons. I could hear the crowd waiting outside the potions room waiting to be let in. I wondered what was holding them up as it wasn't like Maverick to keep the class waiting. We walked down to join the crowd and suddenly realised why no one was going in. Albus and I both ran to the crowd, pushing through until we were at the front.

Albus jumped into the fight, grabbed Rose and pulled her off of Dani. Dani's face was scratched and Rose had a bruise on her jaw. Both girls were red in the face.

"Rose! What the hell are you doing?!" She was still struggling to get to Dani in Albus's arms. "Would you stop!" Rose stopped kicking in his arms– but the door was now opened and professor Maverick stood there gaping at the scene before him. The whole hall went quiet, even the pictures didn't make a sound.

"All of you– into my class, right now!" Maverick said sternly. "Except for you Ms Weasley and Ms Ross." He gave them both a cold look. "You two will join me in the Headmasters office right now." He turned to face the rest of us. "You lot will write out an essay of the pros and cons of brewing a wolfsbane potion– tell what could go wrong if brewed incorrectly. I'll expect a foot and more of work done."

Of course, once Maverick left with Dani and Rose, everyone began to talk.

"What was that about–?"

"Did you see her face–?"

"I've never seen Maverick look so angry before."

I looked for Eleanor. She stood beside Drida and Logan talking urgently to them. I decided to join them– they must know what happened. I knew why it happened– the Alex situation. But what did Dani do just there to make Rose attack her like that? Or was it the other way around? Did Dani attack Rose? Something is definitely up with Dani. Nothing like this has ever happened before.

"What the hell happened?" I asked once I joined them.

"I don't know. I just saw Rose and Dani attack one another at the same time," Logan replied. "I heard someone say that Dani began calling Rose things like.." he brought his voice down to a whisper. ".. a whore." He shrugged his shoulders. "That's what I was told anyway."

"That's kind of ironic considering what Dani did," Eleanor said darkly.

"I know why she called her that," Albus said, pulling over a stool and sitting next to us. Scorpius followed him, looking pretty angry about something or other. Albus gave Scorpius a look and he shrugged his shoulders as if to say 'may as well tell them'. "The night Alex and Dani kissed, Scorpius found Rose in the seventh floor. Rose was upset and pretty pissed with Alex and one thing led to another and she snogged Scorp." Albus gave him a look and Scorpius held up his hands.

"Whoa. Don't give me that look– she snogged me," he reminded Albus. "And Dani saw us and began to threaten to tell Alex... and obviously Rose got worried and attacked Dani. But obviously Dani had the same intentions, so blah, blah, blah. Now they're in trouble."

I slammed my head down on the desk feeling frustrated– why does so much have to happen in the space of two months? We're almost in November for Merlin's sake! And already so much has happened. My head began to hurt. This was one way to stop me from focusing on my work and study. Great, just bloody brilliant. Why would Rose do that? Why would Dani snog Alex? Why was this all happening? I felt as though it was slowly driving all of us apart. Was that Dani's intention? If so, then why?


"Come on, Mia, it's not that hard to turn a cup back into a mouse," Professor Browning said, tapping her wand to the cup turning it into a brown field mouse. It squeaked. I frowned at it. My mind had been so preoccupied that I went into a trance about everything.

"Sorry, professor," I mumbled. She sighed and transfigured the mouse back into a cup. We were learning untransfiguration today. And to be fair, it was quite difficult to do despite what Browning says. All I could think about was Rose. I hadn't seen her at lunch. And I didn't have my last three classes with her. I would have to find her when the bell rang to make things clear.

The bell finally rang, and with Drida and Eleanor, I walked out of class. We had decided we had to find Rose. Drida said that she didn't get a chance to talk to her in herbology.

The smell from the Dungbomb had settled somewhat, but every now and then you'd get a faint whiff of it.

"Mia," Fred said. He took me wrist, held a finger up to Drida and Eleanor as though to say one minute, and pulled me gently away from them. "What happened today? I saw Rose at lunch and her face... She won't tell me or James anything. And she's definitely avoiding Alex again." He frowned, furrowing his brow. "What happened?"

I pursed my lips. "I'm sorry, Fred, but if Rose doesn't want to tell you, then it's not my place to tell you. You'll probably hear it off of someone else," I told him.

He frowned more but nodded. "I guess that's true." His face lit up. "Want to do something?"

"What?" I asked him.

"I don't know..." He kissed my nose. Then he brought his lips to mine. "We could just do this," he suggested. He kissed my jaw. My heart hammered against my chest. He brought his lips back up to mine. "But I promised your friends back to you." He nodded his head to Eleanor and Drida who were both looking politely in the opposite direction. I chuckled under my breath at them. Fred kissed my forehead. "I'll catch up with you later. Come up to the Gryffindor common room before dinner." He kissed my lips again before heading off in the other direction.

Feeling light on my feet, I almost skipped back over to Drida and El. "He's not going to whisk you away to snog you all the time, is he?" Eleanor teased, poking my side.

"Geez, Eleanor," I said, swatting away her hand with a laugh. My face was in great need of a fan. "He was just asking about Rose."

"Oh, so now you can communicate through snogging," Drida said. "That's impressive."

"No. He really did ask before we got to the snogging bit," I admitted.

All three of us laughed until we rounded the corner and saw Dani sitting on a bench next to a Slytherin boy with fierce blue eyes. He had black hair that swept over his forehead. There was something about him that made me nervous. The way his eyes flickered over Dani's shoulder and swept back just as quickly sent a chill down my spine. Both of them were talking in whispers. I could see a scratch running up Dani's arm and I cringed. Rose was definitely stronger than she looked.

"Let's look for her somewhere else," Drida said flatly, taking Eleanor and me away from Dani. I could understand why Rose went ahead and attacked— I had that urge every time I saw Dani now. I don't want to feel like that because it's not me, but Dani made me feel so furious. She didn't notice us, thankfully, and now were a distance away from her and I could feel myself relaxing once more. I had to stop feeling so bitter. Anger wasn't going to get me anywhere in life— with me, I always bottled up all of my feelings. I never hit someone before (that wasn't Alex, but to be fair I only ever hit him once!), I never sobbed to anyone but my family about my fathers death, I never roared at anyone. I just kept it all in— I knew deep down that was a dangerous thing to do as someday I could just end up roaring at someone I cared about over something silly. It was dangerous to keep everything inside.

"I suggest we search the library. You know how Rose gets..." I said.

The others agreed and we began our journey to the library. The library was mostly vacant bar a few students. We saw our red-headed friend in the corner of the library, scowling into a book. I could tell she wasn't even reading the book, she was thinking. Eleanor, Drida and I walked over to her. We each sat down opposite her. Her eyes flicked up to us. She sighed and closed her book with a loud thud.

"I don't want to talk about what happened," she snapped before we could even say a word.

"We just want to make sure you're okay," Drida said softly. She placed a hand on Rose's arm. Rose looked down, but before she did I saw tears swimming in her eyes. She sniffled and wiped them away, her cheeks and ears turning red from embarrassment.

"I'm fine," she replied through gritted teeth. "She makes me so mad!" Rose snapped. "It's like she's purposely out to ruin my life! I made a big mistake." I had a feeling she was talking about the Scorpius thing. She didn't know that we knew, and I knew it wouldn't help her if she did know. "And now Waverick is sending a letter home to my mum— you know my mum's crazy! She'll send a bloody howler. Blah!" Rose groaned and rested her head down on the table. "I'm in so much trouble!"

"Rose, don't worry about it until the time comes, okay?" Eleanor said. "Let's just get out of here. I'd suggest going to the lake, but..." As if on cue, outside a loud bang could be heard– a clash of thunder. "But to be honest, I'd suggest talking to Alex for you. You know he only cares about you, Rose."

Her head picked up and her eyes widened in alarm. "No. I can't see Alex... If he finds out..." She trailed off, alarm on her face from what she just said. We pretended not to hear and she relaxed slightly. She sighed. "I mean... Yeah. Let's go to Alex, then." She fumbled putting her book back into her bag. Her hands were shaking slightly as she walked with us out of the library.

The walk to the Gryffindor common room seemed to take longer than usual. None of us said a word as we travelled to the seventh floor of the Grand Staircase. People looked nervously to Rose as we passed them– even though I was thankful they were no longer glaring at me, I wished they wouldn't look at Rose the way they were. You would swear she did an unforgivable curse on Dani the way they gave her an unsure, cold look. Rose simply kept her head down the way I had to avoid the stares of everyone. I felt bad for her. She looked so confused, and her hand kept ok tracing the bruise on her jaw.

Eventually we came to the entrance– the Fat Lady raised a brow at us. "Password?" she asked. Her voice was low and smooth.

"We don't have one," I admitted, rubbing my arm nervously. "Um... But could you get Fred Weasley for me?" The painting clicked her tongue, but a minute later she disappeared. We waited for her for just two minute before she reappeared and the door swung open. Fred stood there at the entrance with a smile on his face– that quickly vanished when he saw Rose.

"You okay, Rosie?" he asked softly, taking her arm and guiding her into the Gryffindor common room. We followed closely behind. Fred sat Rose down on the couch next to James. Fred sat on the other side of her. I couldn't help but admire how caring he acted towards his family– it was sweet and it made my heart melt. He had a hand on her back, rubbing it in comfort. Rose looked like she could have cried from the niceness of her cousin. James looked at her concerned.

"I'm fine, I'm fine," she persisted. She looked around the common room. "Where's Alex?" she asked when she noticed his absence.

"He's gone down to the Great Hall with Luke," James told her. "He's really worried about you, Rose. You need to stop avoiding him and tell him what's wrong— Fred and I cannot listen to him for another day wondering if he did this or that wrong or if you hate him, and so on." James shrugged.

"He didn't do anything wrong," Rose said. "I'm going down after him. We need to talk." She stood up and jogged lightly out of the common room.

"I think I'll join Luke down at the Great Hall, then," Eleanor said. She said goodbye to us before racing out of the room. That just left James, Drida, Fred and I. The four of us looked to one another and shrugged out shoulders.

Fred stood up, took my hand and walked me over to the notice board. He pointed to one note in particular. "Hogsmeade this Saturday," he said. "And if I recall correctly, you have a date with Lysander." Even though he did will to hide it, I could see that Fred was jealous. That made my heart flutter. A boy jealous for me has never happened before. It made me want to hug him, actually, because at least I knew he cared and that meant a lot to me.

I made a face. "Damn," I swore. "I knew I had to do something. Surely he'd know I won't go on a date with him now that we're going out." That still felt good to say. I am Fred Weasley's girlfriend felt even better to say/think.

"He's a guy. You underestimate what we do or do not know," Fred said. "Honestly, if it were me I would still hope that you'd want to go on a date with me." He shrugged. "And I still know guys who want to get with you despite the fact that you're my girlfriend." Oh, it sounded even better when Fred said it.

"Guys want to get with me?" I laughed at that ridiculous statement. "No guy has ever wanted to get with me."

Fred raised a brow. "Um... If you're trying to imply that I am not a guy, then I could seriously prove you wrong." He winked at me and my cheeks turned pink. "And I seriously doubt Lysander asked you on that date so you two could talk about the weather. Honestly, Mia, you really need to stop putting yourself down."

I kissed his cheek and he smiled. "I know," I muttered. I gave him a curious look. "So, what other guys want to get with me?" I gave him a teasing look and he laughed.

"Oh, no. I'm not telling you that," he said with a nervous chuckle. "I'd rather not give you options."

"I'd still chose you," I said, wrapping my arms around him. I could hear his heart racing. He wrapped his arms around me too and kissed my head. I couldn't believe that I was making his heart race like this just by hugging him. I couldn't believe that he even liked me. I just couldn't wrap my head around the idea that a guy's even attracted to me. Especially Fred. "Why do you like me?" I blurted out. I tried to pull out of the hug but he held me tighter. That made my mind go foggy– I really liked his hugs. I liked standing here in his arms, not caring that some Gryffindor's might be staring, or that some girls might be jealous of me.

"You're simply amazing," he muttered in my ear. "You're smart, funny. You care for your friends. You listen to others complain about their lives even after your father died. You're strong and beautiful." He let me go out of our hug. I expected him to look away out of embarrassment, but he didn't. He looked right at me and I found myself blushing. He really thought that of me? He thought I was strong? He thought I was beautiful? Funny? I never believed anyone would ever think that of me, ever. But her Fred was saying all of those things I never thought about myself before.

I felt my throat tighten with so many emotions. "Thank you," I mumbled. He opened his mouth to say something but his stomach growled and his face went pink. "I think we should go down for dinner." I smiled at him and took his hand.

As we passed an empty classroom I heard someone talking inside. The voice was cold and icy. It sent a shiver down my spine. Fred and I, for some reason, hesitated outside the door. "We will take him at Christmas," the voice said. It was a males voice, definitely. "This will be sure to cause greater wars. And once we have him, we'll be unstoppable. No one will do anything to put the boy in danger. We could control the whole wizarding world. And after that, the goblins, and after them the ogres and ghouls will be at our command. Everyone will bow before us in the new, more powerful, era."

"I think we should burn each muggle like they tried to do to us hundreds of years ago," a raspy voice replied. My eyes widened and I looked to Fred. He looked like he was going to be sick.

We heard shuffling inside the room and instinct made us run straight from the door. We didn't stop running until we got down to the entrance of the Great Hall. When we found our breath again, we looked to one another, both of us alarmed at what we heard.

"This is not good." His voice was full with panic. "We need to tell Calverny. Or any teacher. We need to tell someone!"

"And do you think they'll believe us that someone in Hogwarts is planning to take over the wizarding world?" He didn't answer me and looked to the ground. "No. 'Course they won't believe us!"

"Then what do we do?" he snapped. "We do have to tell someone. Didn't you hear him? He plans to take someone to use against the whole wizarding world. And obviously it's someone important."

"You think someone has to be important that we wouldn't do anything to put them in any risk of being killed?" I was surprised to find my voice rising slightly. I took in a deep breath trying to relax myself again. "Look, what I'm trying to say is that those people could take anyone– muggle or wizard– and use them against us."

"This can't be happening," he mumbled. He threw both hands up to his head and walked around the entrance hall. I could hear everyone inside the hall enjoying their food. There's so many of them– anyone could be working for those two people. "Why would anyone want to start another war? The last war was only over twenty years ago. What could make someone want to start another one?" Fred shook his head in frustration.

The doors of the Great Hall opened and Fred and I jumped. It was just a couple of first year Hufflepuff's. They looked at us for a few seconds before moving on. Inside I could see Eleanor and Rose at the Ravenclaw table. They were talking and laughing at something– would they believe me if I told them? Maybe. Or maybe they'd think I was going insane and hearing things.

"What do we do?" I choked. This year was becoming too much for me to handle. My eyes brimmed with tears. Fred stopped and looked at me. I tried to wipe away the tears that brimmed over my cheeks. My sight was blurry, but I felt hands wrap around me. I buried my head into Fred's shoulder, not sure what else I should do. Fred never answered my question, but just held me until I calmed myself down. Finally, after composing ourselves, we walked into the Great Hall. No one gave us a second look, thankfully. I wondered if my eyes were red from crying. I don't cry so I felt a sort if release when I let the years pour out.

What could a pair of teenagers do to stop this?
Yo. Please tell me what ye think! Any type of criticism is okay by me. Be honest!! I want to know what ye think of this story!!!
