Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 11Dumbledore’s curiosityThe following days weren’t very spectacular left aside that Harry, Ron, Neville and Hermione seemed to be a bit distressed. Lillian picked up that they seemed to have had their first encounter with Fluffy. When they weren’t doing homework in the common room she sometimes picked up parts of their conversations but she restrained herself from getting involved. She had other things to occupy herself with - for example the next potion lesson. Since that evening where he had abruptly left she hadn’t heard from him not counting what she heard from other students about him being in a bad mood.When she was getting up from the dinner table on Thursday evening Ron and Harry pitied her for having to bear Snape instead of joining them in the Gryffindor common room. She waved it off with a smile even though she couldn’t deny the slight worry that was boiling somewhere within her stomach. When she went down to his office she found him sitt
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 10Agony and desireThe next morning at breakfast Harry and Ron were astounded, that she was still alive and even more surprised, that she had apparently done so well in her private lesson with Snape.“He complimented you?” Ron gaped at her forgetting to bite into his toast so that the honey dropped down onto his plate.“He just said ‘Very well’ and gave me full points for my potion.” Lillian shrugged and ate a sausage.“That IS a compliment” said Harry and shook his head in disbelief. “Not even Hermione ever got a compliment even though her stuff is almost always perfect.”Lillian shrugged again not showing them that the way the lesson had ended also concerned her, but it was absolutely none of their business what she shared with Snape. “He gave me an eight inch essay as homework though” she said quickly. “I’m a first year student after all even though I am older than you two together. And he didn&
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 9Broomsticks and private lessonsWhen she woke up in the morning she couldn’t remember how she had gotten into bed. She also didn’t remember her dreams. The only thing spinning in her mind for a few minutes was the previous evening. She got up, opened the curtains and the windows to let the sunshine and fresh air in while getting dressed and ready for breakfast and lessons. While she looked into the mirror combing her hair she noticed the faint smile on her face. When she had packed her bag for today’s lessons she left her room and went down to have breakfast.Ron, Harry, Fred and George were already there eating porridge.“Good morning Lillian” said Fred cheerfully.“Yeah good morning” agreed Fred.Ron offered her the bowl with porridge. “Help yourself.”“Uhm no thanks. I hate porridge.” She grabbed the bowl with cereals instead and underlined her statement with a disgusted sort of face.“Are you serious?
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 8Behind the maskWhile she was trying to comfort him silently her eyes fell onto a clock on the mantelpiece that told her, that it was half past ten. Obviously almost every room with a chimney had a clock on its mantelpiece.After approximately ten more minutes his crying ebbed away and he let go of her still sobbing a bit. He pulled out her handkerchief from his cloak and blew his nose to then put it away again. She left a hand on his back.“If you don’t want you don’t have to continue. I think –“He interrupted her with a vigorous shake of his head. “I will continue.”“Okay.” She waited until he had breathed deeply in and out several times and then listened closely again.“After that incident, which was the first thing I never forgave myself, we grew apart, merely because she had chosen her way and I had chosen mine. In our last year I had to watch with bitterness that she started seeing Potter and -“ He sighed.
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 7Despair and memoriesWhen the bell rang she went back to her room to take away her bag and to take off the robes. As slow as possible she went down into the Great Hall getting lost on purpose two times that when she finally reached her place at the Gryffindor table the Great Hall was already packed with people.“Where have you been so long?” asked Harry when she had sat down.“Got lost...” mumbled Lillian and wondered if it would be a good idea to eat something.“Still worried?” asked Ron and Lillian nodded staring down on her plate.“In fact I’ve been wondering if I shouldn’t go at all” she said and sighed.“Yes you have to. Otherwise he might take more points from Gryffindor, or give us all detention or poison our breakfast tomorrow.”“Hmm...”“Seriously – don’t make things worse for either of us.”Lillian sighed deeply still not having touched any of the foods. “I
Poison Prince and Brave Princess Part I-Chapter 6The letterShe 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
