Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 6The letter
She didn’t know how long she had been there by the lakeside. When she finally got up on her wobbly knees it was too dark to see and a grumbling sound in the distance told her of an upcoming thunderstorm. Feeling drained and befuddled she took her wand. “Lumos...” she muttered and the tip of her wand lit up. She dragged herself up to the castle entrance while the thunderstorm was rolling closer. When she entered the entrance hall a bright lightning crawled over the sky lighting up the entrance hall for seconds, not long afterwards a loud thunder followed. She closed the portal and hurried up the marble staircase. The weather actually underlined her state of mind perfectly. When she closed the door of her room behind her it started to rain. She closed the windows and the curtains, undressed and crawled into her bed without putting on her pyjama. She fell into a restless sleep full of odd dreams.
When she woke up the next morning she felt as if she hadn
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 5Explorations
After the party she had her issues to find back to her room. And Peeves didn’t help either. When she finally managed to find the third corridor it was way past midnight. Again she decided it was a good idea to explore the castle and the school grounds the next day. She walked down the corridor the moon shining through the windows and her wand emitting a bit of light. When she was about to pass by the stone gargoyle it swung to the side and Snape stepped into the corridor mumbling “Lumos”. The tip of his wand lighted up the moment he noticed Lillian’s lighted wand. A sudden bewildered expression appeared on his face and he widened his eyes to then narrow them not keeping them off Lillian. She felt another wave of concern and unease rumbling within her. The moment she finally decided to say something Snape just shook his head in disbelief and rushed down the corridor out of sight.
Lost in thoughts she reached for her room and wanted to open the
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 4Lillian’s room and Sorting Feast
They left her office and marched down the corridor, down staircases until they reached the third floor corridor again. Lillian followed McGonagall past the stone gargoyle down the corridor and around a corner. A few steps later they stopped in front of a wooden door.
“Your room” said Professor McGonagall and opened the door.
They went inside. The room wasn’t very big and a bit bald with only her bed, a wooden desk, a wardrobe, an empty bookcase with three shelves and a wooden chair behind the desk. The chimney was cold, only a few logs were inside it but no fire danced upon them.
“Neat...” said Lillian but wasn’t able to hide the hint of disappointment.
“I will now go and look for the headmaster and Professor Flitwick. Meanwhile you can unpack your things into the wardrobe and put your books on the shelves.”
Not waiting for Lillian’s answer McGonagall left her alone and the things she ha
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 3Errands
When she was gone Dumbledore went back to his desk again and sat down. “There are a few more things we have to agree about.” He watched Lillian while she was admiring Fawkes, but she turned around as soon as he fell silent.
“That would be what?”
“Well. Since you are going to walk around the school and since you aren’t a teacher but a too old student people will be asking questions.”
“I see. So...what do you think I should say?”
Dumbledore gazed out of the window for a few seconds before he replied. “I think I will let everyone know the most necessary things during dinner. If anyone tries to squeeze more out of you I would prefer you don’t say anything.”
“Fine with me,” said Lillian and was quite relieved that she did not have to explain everything again.
“Good. The next thing is – we need to decide what house you belong to even though you won’t sleep in the dormitory of
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 2The wondrous story
“Lemon drop” said McGonagall and the stone gargoyle moved aside to reveal the spiral staircase that led to the office. Lillian followed McGonagall onto the staircase that started to move like a very slow carousel and transported them upwards. When the staircase stopped they were standing in front of a closed door. McGonagall knocked and a wise old voice said:
They entered the room. Behind the enormous wooden desk with the claw-feet he sat. Quickly Lillian looked around as far as possible from where she was standing and recognised the cabinet that contained Dumbledore’s pensieve and then she looked back at him again. He stood up from his chair and eyed her in the same unbelieving way like McGonagall had already done.
“You didn’t exaggerate Minerva,” he said slowly looking from Lillian to McGonagall and back. “She really bears a striking resemblance to Lily.” With a sigh he sat down on his ch
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 1The woman in the boy dormitory
After a night full of dreams about the books she was woken up by seldom pokes and whispers around her. She turned around lying on her back her eyes still closed.
“Woah...” she heard a very young male voice say.
“It...it’s a...a woman...” said another young male voice.
The whispers died out suddenly when she decided to squint carefully. There were five shadows around her bed. One second, five shadows around her bed? She quickly flung her eyes open and stared around. She wasn’t in her flat anymore. She wasn’t even sure to be anywhere close to home. The room she was in was circular and had a very high ceiling. The walls were built of greyish and old bricks that reminded of a castle. The five shadows around her bed were boys, maybe between 10 and 12 years old. One of them was black.
“Wow...” said a red-haired boy on the left side and eyeballed her not even trying to hide his curiosity. She knew this
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I - ProloguePrologue
Lillian Ellen Block was an usual young woman of twenty five winters. Her height was average and her shapes a bit lumpy. Her hair was long to her blade bones, smooth, wavy and red and along with her light skin tone it underlined her bright green eyes. Her eyes actually were most unusual, because they were of such an almost unnatural pure green. Sometimes she looked into the mirror and thought she was a witch. But unfortunately she wasn’t. Unfortunately she was just an ordinary human being.
Lillian lived in a small apartment with only one room, a small kitchen, a tiny hall and a small bathroom, but that was actually enough for her. She even had a narrow balcony where she grew some herbs and flowers. But Lillian was lonely. With only very few friends who all didn’t live very close to her she spent most of her time with her computer or by reading books or watching movies. Whenever she finished a book she felt the deep desire of just vanishing from the real world
All Here For A ReasonI turned onto a shady, well-manicured driveway that, for all intents and purposes, looked harmless enough. Maple trees lined both sides of the street, and a parade of Canadian geese marched across the road to a wide duck pond with a flamboyant fountain. There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.
I stopped to let the geese pass. They looked at me; one hissed. I honked my horn and moved around them.
At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
I was shaking when I got out of my car. I had spent the morning getting high. One foot in front of the other, flip-flop noises, hot sidewalk. Mulberry and magnolia trees, freshly shaved grass. A bench and pan for smokers. A set o
