Hermione's Problem

(0) It was the first day back at Hogwarts and Harry, Ron, and Hermione were eating dinner in the Great Hall, catching up on their summer. Harry and noticed that Hermione had gotten a lot thinner. He also noticed that she wasn't eating much. "MMM," Harry said, "Yuummmm, chicken..." as he held a chicken leg in front of her face. Hermione smled a thin liped smile. "Thanks anyway Harry, I don't want any," she said as she picked at her salad and ranch dressing. When Ron tried to comment, Hermione shot him a sharp look that clearly said, "Leave-Me-Alone" (Mickey Mouse, Age 13 to 18, 1/15/2003 4:33:40 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(1) "Hermione what on earth is the matter with u."Harry spoke sharper than he had intended to.He couldnt understand why but just haing her there acting like she was made him uncostomly nerous.As if there was something important that he didn't know about.Harry shifted in his seat frowning slightly.The food tasted like lead in his mouth.He looked at hermione,she looked like a wraith.As he watched hermione seemed to shift.her haif change to red and her eyes turned a forest green.He blinked,she was back to normal.His frown deepened something was definantly wrong. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 2/12/2003 6:02:28 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(2) "Nothing wrong with me!" She snapped back at him."Just leave me alone!" Harry looked at her and knew that something was defenitly wrong!"Hermione are you sure..." Hermione cut of Harrys question."Harry I told you to but out!" Her eyes flared a dangerous fire blazing red. Harry blinked again and she was back to normal."Im just tired!So if you will excuse me with NO questions I think I will go to bed!" Hermione said sweetly. Too sweetly! She stormed out of the Great Hall. As Harry watched her he thought to himself about her eyes and her hair and thought that the first time he had his mind change Hermione into his mum and the second time his mind changes her into Voldemort.'Yes' harry thought to himself,'thats what happened! I imangened she changed but theres still something wrong wit her!' (L, Age 8 to 12, 2/15/2003 8:43:17 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(3) The girl that looked like hermione sighed.she looked back at harry potter and stiffled a wicked grin.God what fun it would be to play her games with him.She knew that harry thought he saw her walking from the room.It was a gift she had perfected when she was six.What fun she would have. She she shook her head at the thought,of Harry and the complications he would cause.She felt a pain near her heart,so sharp it almost brought her to her knees.She hoped to god Hermione would forgive her,she was such a lovely friend to save her like she did.She saw Hermione out of the corner of her eye."Speak of the devil" She smiled,very much like a satisfied cat.Spun on her heel and became another student entirely. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 2/20/2003 3:22:00 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(4) "Excuse me!" she called out, "Hermione Granger?" Hermione turned around. "Yea?" She walked toward her. "Hermione, I am a student here. Professor McGonnagl suggested i talk to u to catch up on my shool work," Hermione brightned. "Sure! COme on!" she said. She smiled inside and had to stop herself from letting out an evil laugh. (Mickey Mouse, Age 13 to 18, 2/22/2003 11:51:03 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(5) Pixsal smiled and nodded as Hermione asked her another question.She had no idea what it was,she had zoned out about five minutes ago.This was another trick she had learned when she was small,when you had extremly boring tutores it was essental that you know when to nod and smile at the righte time.She had also learned how to day dream and have it seem as if she were paying rapt attention.She hadn't wanted to hurt their feelings when they had only good intintions.Actually Pixsal found it amazing that Hermione could talk so much for so long without taking a single breath or turning red in the face.She looked at the pictures on the walls as she followed hermione down the hall.She didn't know much about art but she could tell that these were good.As she passed a picture of a young girl dancing,it seemed that the eyes were following her.She was three feet from it before that thought registered.She stoped,blinked,and backed up.she looked at the picture suspiciously as she took one step forward and it followed.She did a series of jigs and hopped up and down.And when it followed she screamed.Hermione turned whith a shocked look on her face as she rushed toward her.She stopped imidiatly and pasted an inocent look on her face as she cocked her head to the side.A habit. She cursed herself silently as she wondered if Hermione would Remember and connect it with her since it was a usual and annoying habit that usualy got her in troble for things that were usualy her fault but which she shouldn't have gotten caught.Hermione's eyes narrowed and so did Pixsal's ability to lie.Crap."Pixsal is that you?" Pixal gave a short laugh and stuttered,"N-..Yes." She smiled at her hoping Hermione wouln't be mad.She was.'I thought i told you to stay in my room.your life is in danger enough without you bringing attetion to yourself.And mine is to becouse i saved you.I thought you cared more about me than that." Hermione looked so weary that Pixsal hurried to explain,"i would have been found out any way and i can n't be found out if people don't know who I am,see watch." Pixal shok her hair slightly and it turned purple with green dots.She smiled and made herselk look just like snape.Hermione sighed and then smiled,"I would like you to meet some peopl who would make sure you would stay out of trouble.They would truly love your tricks,and you would absolutly adore theirs.You'll love each other.Their names are Fred And George Weasly.ask around for them.I have to go tell my teachers my 'cousin' has showed up.Goodby pixsal,and please be good" Pixsal beamed and yelled over her shoulder as she ran down back to the great hall,"By MiMi,i promise i'll be good" Behind her Hermione shook her head with asmall smile as she turned on her heel and walked away.And Malfoy came slowly from the Shadows. (Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 2/25/2003 7:34:25 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(6) Malfoy watched.As a new kind of complication ran down the hallway.He shook his head.She was going to half to be delt with.And fast.He only hoped he was strong enough to take her,Hermione,and unavoididly,Harry and Ron.Malfoy nowing that this particular prayer would not be answered.Shook his head at the unfairness of the battle soon to come. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 3/7/2003 7:41:44 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(7) Meanwhile, Hermione had just gotten done talking with Dumbledoer about her cousion when Ron takled Hermione down to the ground."Ron!" she yelled,"GET OFF ME!!!!!"Ron got up and Harry grabbed her arms. Hermione had no idea what was going on.She saw Pixsal and yelled for help. Pixsal ran over and gave her evil laugh...Hermione then knew that something had happened. She hit Harry in the gut with her elbow and kicked Ron in the face. She then ran out the door to the Forbidden Forest. There she spotted her other cousion,Amy.Amy was on her unicorn looking for Pixsal. When Hermione told Amy about what had happened Amy headed for the castle, but was blocked off by someone. Or should I say someoneS....................................................................................................................................It was Malfoy with Victor Krum in one hand and Fred Weasly in the other! (L, Age 8 to 12, 3/7/2003 9:01:33 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(8) Can someone tell me whats going on? (When would you like to know., Age 13 to 18, 3/9/2003 5:36:18 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(9) I no longer know (Morgain & Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 3/9/2003 9:13:54 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(10) While Amy sat and looked at the three idots in front of her.Pixsal was back at Hogwarts doing what she did best.Stirred up trouble.And i haven't even started yet.She thought as she watched three or four people walk up to one of the tallest banisters they could find in the school.It wasn't hard either,the stairs seemed extremly corroppotive.Once she had stopped freaking out when they had started to dip and weave every time she took a step on them.They had got along fine.She had throughly scolded them for scaring the bejesus out of her when they had actually got her,(narrowed eyed and distinctly more annoyed than scared by this time)Halfway down and they had started to shake so badly she nearly went comatose.She had fallen to her knees right then and their praying to anyone up there who had a mind to listen for help.The stairs had shaken more violently and she had nearly fallen.Thats when she thought she had better be more pacific about who she was praying to.She had said Hail Mary's left and right.By this time she had heard laughter,and thought that bacouse of her many,many,many,many,many,you get the idea,sins.She had thought the gates had opened and demons were coming for her right then and there.To put it briefly,she had more or less panicked.And when there wern't any demonic hands ready to pull her under,she finally realized that the laghter was coming from those pictures that moved and the stairs themselves.If you good call good natured rumbling all along the staircase laughing.Pixsal,not wanting to try walking down the stairs again just in case it decided to play again,promptly hicked up her new robe ,swung one leg over the banister,sat on it backward,and slid.Her original idea had been to get to the bottem of the stairs without killing herself,find a nice big ax,and start chopping firewood.Starting with this lovely wooden staircase.But somehow on the initial winding ,dipping,and occasinal spinning that involved the ride down.She had forgoten her orginal intintion.had enjoyed it to.Whooping and squeeling in delight untill she had landed with a thud right smack on her bottem.That was when she had come up with her initial idea.And what an idea it was.She thought smugly while rubbing her still sore derriar.But there was another problem.She got bored easily.And though it was extremly amusing to hear the squeals and yelps of pain once people hit the bottem.It got tireing real quick.And that,was when she came up with another idea.She winced as she heard another resounding thud at the bottem of the staircase.That one will hurt in the morning,she thought with a smile.She turned on her heals and started down the hall.Forgetting one thing that usually kept her from her more outrageous plans.A saying her sister Amy had repeatedly told her as a child.Every action has a consequence,and some things can be seen clearly only in the dark. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 3/12/2003 7:23:36 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(11) Harry Potter and Ron Weasly as you know live in England.Never,you are assuming correctly,getting the chance to the good old U.S of A.And never,you are also assuming correctly considering their lives,seen a movie or heard appropriate music.So imagine their respones when the entered the Griffendor common room looking for Hermione and came upon a sight that many sane people are fortunate,not to have seen.What they saw was Pixsal in the middle of her newest plan.You see she had decided to host a social get together.Her way of saying a full blown party,in case any grown ups should ask.A Safty precausion.What they saw when they entered was a type of get together.With all girls and a couple of boys(the ones,she later confided in Harry,that she thought were totally hot)posing as bodyguards.("In case something happenes.A saftey precation."She later assured a very indignant Percy who happened to come in during a particurally loud song.When he seemed more angry by the noise than anything else.Pixsal happened to mention that maybe Percy was getting a bit old.He could be losing his mind,she heard no music.and when everyone else agreed,she suggested that maybe he should lie down)So what the two shocked boys walked in on were 50 or 60 people in the comon room.Dancing and swaying to a band called Nickleback that seemed to come from nowhere.(a trick i learned when i was little,Pixal assured him with a smile,don't worry about it)Percy laying down in a chair with an ice pack on his forehead mumbling "there is no music,there is no music" And Pixsal in the middle of the room doing the most outrageous things that they left harry gaping.She also spent about thirty minutes teaching everyone dances that came from people she called Michal Jackson,Chris Tucker,and a show called MTV.When most admitted they didn't know who these people were.She addopted a shocked expression,and promptly declared that for wizards they sure didn't know how to conjure up some fun.And that she would devote her waking hours to teach them.And thats what she did.A few people got a bit dizzy after she coaxed Fred and George to add somthing special to the drinks.Harry was dancing with her,and she was teaching him a dance that came from a woman called Madonna.And she was laughing quite gaily at his shocked yet this-is-great expression on his face.She turned her head at one point and smiled at him.And Harry had a thought that he new with a certainty was the truth.You know when you look at a picture of somone who had died a long time ago.Who had died so very young,and you would looke at their eyes and thier smile,and you would see the vibrancy,the happiness,the life that was on their faces.Frozen in time forever.The look of the doomed.Thats what Pixal had.The look of one who would die way to young.Pixsal caught his eye,and in his head he heard her voice,"thats right harry my boy.I most certainly will.And unless you wanna be stupid and play hero again then theirs nothing you can do.But i'm not going anywhere untill this is settled." And then her smile brightened and she winked at him.Then turned away.Not long after that something happened.Pixsal deciding it was time to teach everyone to cook her famous junkfood ala'mode.When she suddenly looked off without seeing.And then she doubled over.Her eyes widened "OWWW...what the OW!!!Crap.." she doubled over again and this time she screamed from the pain of it.Harry and Ron hurried over to her.She looked at them with sightless eyes,and said four words that made harry turn cold,"Hermione...Amy...Forbidden Forest." Ron ran toward the door imidiatly,and harry followed.But Pixsal's voice stopped them.She looked at them from her croched position without raising her head.And the look in her eyes made harry step back in fear."I'm coming with you," she straitened and her eyes hardened "this is my fight exspecially,and it seems that an old aquantece seems to have finally lost patience.Hurry,we have 15 minutes before he comes.And it wont be easy finding our way through a forest at night.Unless..." and befor she could finish she grabbed a long object covered in red cloth and hurried from the room.

(21) Hermioen wasn't mad at ron, actually, just quite harry. She pretended to be mad at Ron but she couldn't help it. Oh well, she always thougt, its onyl a crush. Ill get over it. But that day, when they were climbing through the hole, Ron said to her, "What's wrong?" But she simply slammed the portrait closed, with Ron left outside crying for the password. At midnight, Hermione came back out, Ron sleeping, and brougth Ron in and threw him on one of the chairs. She had to struggle. Then she hurried back up stairs. When Ron woke up, he didn't remember, and thought he just slept there for some reason. (Emma Watson, Age 13 to 18, 4/20/2003 8:09:50 AM, Hermiones_Problem)

(22) Hermione realised that next day she loved Ron. Why woudl she go get him if she hated him so much? So she decided to wait for him in the common room; Ron went to detention for cryign for the password, filch thought he was a slythern trying to get into gryffindor.

(24) "I hate Mr.Filch", claimed Ron. Sometimes I want to ring his neck! A few hours after that Ron and Herimomnne met at the beginning of the forbidden forest. Ron confesseed that he loved Heroimone. Herimone confessed that she loved him too. They both decided when they were old enough they were going to get married. (Cassie, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 10:41:56 AM, Hermiones_Problem)

(25) They would marry after they finished school.They didn't know how they were going to tell Harry that they had fallen in love. Heroimone and Ron decided to not tell Harry because if they did, Harry would explode. (Lexee, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 12:43:14 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(26) Unfortunately, Harry had heard their conversation in the Forest. He was shot through with jealousy, and a hostile manner began to show whenever he hung out with Ron. Ron was dumbfounded, and tried to ignore the cold glares Harry gave him from out of nowhere. One night, he and Hermoine were snuggled up in a chair, studying for Potions. Harry strode in, his eyes bright with anger. His lips curled into a sneer when he saw the couple. "So Ron, when are you going to get married?" Ron gaped. "WHAT?!" (Whatever, Age 8 to 12, 5/12/2003 4:24:00 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(27) Hermoine slid away from Ron. "What are you talking about Harry? Ron's not getting married." Ron nodded quickly, and out spilled the dozen of invitations he'd spent all evening on. Gulp. Harry scooped them up, before Ron could say a thing. "Hermoine Weasley. That's a nice name. Hope you and your wonderful fiancee here lead a great life together," Harry spat. He stormed out the common room and into ... Draco. Draco had heard everything. "You gonna let Weasley get away with stealing your , Potter?" (Whatever again, Age 8 to 12, 5/12/2003 4:27:55 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(28) Harry looked away. "Everyone knows that you have the world's greatest crush on that stupid muggle-" Harry clenched his fists. "and maybe that Chang ..." Harry felt his fingertips dig into his palm. "Now it's over, Potter. Weasley stabbed you in the back. You and Granger - game over." With a swish of his cloak, Draco started down the hall. Harry made up his mind and quickly followed Draco. When they had stopped, in front of the s restroom, Harry was out of breath. Still panting Harry said "What should I do then, Draco? What?" Draco flashed an evil grin at Harry. "Remember that Polyjuice Potion you made...?" (Whatever, Age 8 to 12, 5/12/2003 4:32:22 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(29) "You want me to...turn into Ron??" Harry stared at his ex-enemy in disbelief. "Why would I want to do that??!" "To show Granger that Weasley is junk," Draco said. "It's up to you Potter." Harry narrowed his eyes. "Why are YOU trying to help me? I respect Ron. I'm not going to make any potion under YOUR advice!" Harry returned to the commonroom, thoughts whirling. (crazy person who is also whatever :P, Age 8 to 12, 5/12/2003 4:35:35 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(30) Hermoine was crying. She didn't realize how much Harry liked her, and now she'd lost him. She became unsure of who she liked. Just then, Ron gave her a hug. She dissolved in his arms. She still liked Ron the most. Let the wedding begin! (After the exams and everything 'course... :P) (Miranda, Age 13 to 18, 5/12/2003 4:37:36 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(31) she did notlikeit. (jenna, Age 8 to 12, 5/12/2003 8:56:44 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(32) Hermoine slapped Ron. "I'm not going to be your girlfriend, if it means I'm going to lose one of my best friends! Leave me alone!" She jumped off his lap, and ran up the staircase to the girl's dorm. Ron sat there dumbfounded. His befuddled looks gradually dissapeared. In their stead, was a scowl. "Fine, Hermoine," he spat (mostly to himself). "Have it your way. I don't know what your problem is. You know Harry likes Cho too, but I like only you. Go ahead. I don't need you either. Ha. Now you've lost both your friends." Tears spilling from his eyes, Ron went up to the boy's common room. He wanted to yell at somebody. (WaWa, Age 13 to 18, 5/18/2003 12:15:37 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(33) Little did Hermione know that Ron was in Filch's closet, drugged and that Malfoy took the Polyjuice Potion. The sleeping powder was wearing off as Ron climbed out of the pile of brooms. He ran out of the closet and into the common room. "Hermione, what is wrong?" "Why are you tlking to me?" Hermione asked coldly. "I thought that you didn't like me. I hought that I lost ou as a friend." She spat. "Hermione, I didn't say anything like that!" Ron protested. "Oh really?" Hermione asked. "Then why did you do this?" She pointed to something. Ron's eyes followed her pointing finger and he gasped. (ihpos-, Age 8 to 12, 6/2/2003 4:43:50 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(34) There was grafitti on the wall that spelled out 'I HATE HERMIONE!' and was signed 'RON WEASLEY'. Ron was dumbfounded. He knew he didn't do that, but if he didn't do it, than who did? "I did't do this, Hermione, honest! I would never do anything like this!" "Sorry, Ron, but this speaks for itself. If you didn't do it than who did?" 'That's what I want to know' thought Ron. (Ahen , Age 8 to 12, 6/6/2003 4:29:16 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(35) "What?" Harry asked when Ron told him the story. "I know, it really sounds stupid. I mean, why would I do anything to Hermione? Plus, if I wrote something about her on the wall, I wouldn't so stupid as to sign my name." Ron said. "Well, it has to be someone witha Gryffindor password," Harry said. "Or someone could have let them in while the person was in a disguise." Harry said thoughtfully. "But why would I have a motive to do something stupid in the first place?" asked Ron. "That is what I'm going to find out." Harry said. "You saty here he ordered the dumbfounded Ron. "Hey Hermione," Harry said, "What's the matter?" "Ron wrote wome grafitti about hating me." "But why would he hate you? Harry asked. "I told him that I wouldn't be his girlfriend if I was going to lose you as a friend." she said, flushing angrily at the reminder of the incident. "He did?" Harry asked in amazement. Everyone knew about the continual arguments that Hermione and Ron had. Hermione nodded and continued,"He took me on his lap, and, and" she could not bear to continue. Harry fought back a grin at the thought of Hermione on Ron's lap. Now I definatly know that Ron didn't do it, he thought. Harry played along, saying ewww! at the right moments and everything until Hermione ran off to the library. He pulled Ron aside and began fillin him in on the situation. "I didn't think that you would blab." someone behind him said stonily. Harry spun around and saw Hermione. "I thought that you were a good friend. I can't beleive this," she said tears running down her cheeks. "Wait up Hermione!"Harry called out desperatly. "You don't understand." Hermione slowly turned toward him.

(36) I thought was my freind, i thought..'Hermione it is not what you think, i was just trying to prove to you that it was'nt ron Harry was trying his upmost best to convice Herminoe but the sad sorrow look in her face told her that was one thing she was'nt gonna forget but to harry's suprise she miraculasly leapt on to hurry and hugged him. Harry stood dumbfounded by what was happening, "WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING!!!Both harry and hermione in a split of a second turned round to see.......... (Yere, Age 5 to 8, 7/7/2003 9:53:09 AM, Hermiones_Problem)

(37) Professor Snape!!"Detention to you all." he said quietly. "I have just received information that you were stealing ingrediants from my office to produce a polyjuice potion." "It wasn't us," Harry protested. "Oh, really! Then how come Miss Chang told me she saw you taking items last Friday? "Cho? She told you that she saw Ron in your office?" Harry's voice sounded a bit faint. "Yes, Potter. And would it interest you to know that there were several other witnesses, people from your own house, I would like to add, who saw Mr. Weasly in my office?" "Other people from our house? Like who?" Hermione asked. "Ginny Weasly, Katie Bell, and Oliver Wood." Snape said casually. "Wood saw Ron take ingrediants?" "Yes, Granger, and they also saw you stealing answers to the upcoming tests." "What??" Hermione was in utter disbeleif. "Yes Granger. Also, Potter, Miss Bulstrode saw you in the girls' bathroom, brewing a potion. You were reading a page that told you how to make the polyjuice potion." The three friends just stared at Snape. "So," he said briskly,"I will see you all this evening in my classroom." He walked away. "Now what?"Ron asked Harry miserably. "Hermione's mad at me, and now I have detention? Could things get any worse?" "Actually, things are getting much better." Harry said slowly. "We just have to ask Wood what time his potions' class was and what the homework was." "How will that help me?" "You were obviously somewhere else, correct?" Harry asked. "Well, yeah. I had classes all that day." "Then, we have to figure out where you were, and ask the teacher to tell Snape that you were in his or her class at the time, and you're cleared." Harry finished. (friend of ahen, Age 8 to 12, 7/10/2003 3:52:37 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(38) "Wood!.....Hey WOOD!" Harry roared as he sprinted towrds Wood who was speaking with Professor McGonagall. "What?" Wood asked looking uterly confused. "Well Ron Hermione and me just got detentions. Harry said as McGonagll left. "Why" Wood asked. "Well Ron got it because Snape said you said that you seen him stealing ingreidants from his office." Harry said. "Well yes its true I did see him take some." Said Wood lazily. But Harry continued. "I got one because Millecent Bulstrode said I was in the girls bathroom brewing a potion while reading a page out of a book telling me how to make a polyjuice potion." Harry told Wood speaking so fast that Wood could barley understand him. "But-" Wood started to say but Harry interupted him. "And Hermione got one because Snape said that you said that you also said you seen her take answers to the upcoming test." Harry said now starting to be angry with Wood. "And why are yo-" Wood started but once again Harry cut him off. "I need you to tell me when that potions class was when you seen them." Harry said now really angry. "9:00 a.m. It was my first class. It did seem really odd that I seen them then beings they shoul have been in class, thats why I told Snape." Wood said without the tinest trace of sorryness in his voice. "Well thanks! I'll tell you later why I wanted to know," Harry said seeing the puzzled look on Woods face. And he turned on his heel to tell Ron and Hermione what he just got out of Wood. "So it cant've been you who took them things," He said refering to Ron about the ingreidants and Hermione about the answers. "I wonder who did take them then and how they looked like us and if they were using the polyjuice potion how they got bits of us without knowing the Gryffindor password." Said Hermione Looking puzzled for the first time. "I'll give you" Harry said "One gues....... (It's none of your buiness:P, Young Adult, 7/20/2003 7:53:50 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(39) "Malfoy!" Hermione said "But how did he get the Gryffindor password?" "Lets worry about that later but first we have to see Proffessor Mcgonagall" Harry said sprinting out of the portrit. "Professor!" Harry Hermione and Ron yelled as they sprinted through her empty class room to her desk where she sat. "Now what do you lot want?" She asked. "Can you tell Snape that we were in this room at 9:00 a.m. until 9:45?" Harry asked knowing what was coming next. "Why" She asked "Snape should know all students are in classes at those times" "Well he just gave us all detentions" Hermione said and Ron told her about how what just happened. "I wondered what you lot had detention for now" She said looking surprised. "How did you know that we had detention?" Harry asked. "I heard you telling Wood" She said. "And yes I will tell Snape." She said sweeping from the room and leaving them standing there alone. (Like I said before its NONE of your buisness:P, Young Adult, 7/20/2003 8:08:05 PM, Hermiones_Problem)

(40) "Professor Snape." she said, sweeping into his cluttered office. "have you just given dtention to Mr. Weasly, Mr. Potter, and Miss Granger?" "As a matter of fact I did," Snape said, turning around. "Well, I would like to know what class that Mr.Weasly supposedly commited this.."she searched for a word. "crime." "He was stealing potions during my 9:00 class." "I'm sorry to say that it must have been another student." she said crisply. "Mr.Weasly was in my 9:00 class at the time." "Indeed." Snape said. "I could have sworn it was Weasly. Several witnesses were there." "It couldn't have been." she said firmly. "I have many witnesses as well. In fact, I have an entire classful of them." "Hmmm. Only the Weaslys have red hair.So, who could it have been?" "As you obviously know, Professor Snape, there are potions that could conceal one's identity." "True." "May I ask you what items you were missing?" He listed all of the ingrediants of a polyjuice potion."Aren't these the ingrediants used for the polyjuice potion?" "yes." Snape admitted. "Has any of your students asked for the book of potente potions?" "Malfoy." Snape said. "It was Malfoy." Ron breathed. "It was Malfoy who did the prank." "And it is Malfoy we will target." Hermione said. The three snuck off to find him. "In fact, Malfoy has had that book for several months." Snape said. "So, is it possible that Malfoy did the stealing?" "Yes." Snape siad grudgingly. "But we do not have proof." "We could always use the Vertiserum. Correct?" "Yes, I will get to it as soon as possible." "Thank you. And if you'd like, I will get Professor Flitwick to repair your office. You may do the procedures in my office." "Thank you." Snape said. "But, " he reminded her. "This does not clear Potter and Granger." "I will explain later." she said, gesturing at the clock. "I must proceed to my next class." She swept out of the room, leaving Snape to find his bottle of Vertiserum. (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 7/21/2003 9:58:15 AM, Hermiones_Problem)

(43) Meanwhile, Malfoy was sitting in his favorite arm chair in the Slytherin Common Room, with his to clonies Crabbe and Goyle standing beside him like bodyguards. "The plan is going as I pictured it to be.....Perfect" Malfoy said evily rubbing his hands together. Crabbe and Goyle both scratched their heads at the exact same time and asked Malfoy "What plan?". Malfoy flashed Crabbe and Goyle a nasty look. "You're the most stupidest oafs I have ever met! I already told you the plan! You just performed some of my plan this morning!" Malfoy said trying to control his temper. "We did?" Crabbe asked still looking confused. "You drank the poly juice potion this morning! And you both changed into Potter and Weasly! You stole the ingretients to complete my plan to destroy Hogwarts! Remember?" Malfoy said madly almost jumping out of his chair. "Oh yeah" Crabbe said nodding dumbly. "I remember now. I forgot" Goyle said. "Clearly" Malfoy said coldly. "Any way, My father will be happy to know that the plan is going great and all. I think the Dark Lord will be very pleased with what I've done. You DO have the ingretients" Malfoy looked nervously at his cronies. "What ingretinents?" Crabbe asked. "You DID get the ingretients right?" Malfoy said as his eyes flared up dangerously. "Oh Yeah, The ingretients, I forgot" Goyle said. "Right, Well where are they?" Malfoy asked. "Right here, I got them in my bag" Crabbe said gesturing toward his bag on the ground. "Well, Show them to me" Malfoy demanded. Crabbe quickly grabbed the bag and gave it to Malfoy who snatched it and quickly opened it to see the ingretients. "Whoa, I'm impressed. You actually got the right ingretients this time" Malfoy said examining the ingretinents. Goyle and Crabbe beamed. Just then, The door opened and someone stepped in the door....

(44) "Hello Pansy." Malfoy said. "I'm not here on pleasure, Malfoy, though I'd love to be." she said. "Potter and Weasly are cleared. I saw McGonagall in Snape's office and," she was out of breath. Malfoy looked up quickly from his cauldron."Yes?" "The Mudblood is cleared." she said. Malfoy stood up quickly, nearly spilling the cauldron's ingrediants. A glimpse of red had causght his eye. Goyle's hair. Oh come on, he told himself, stop imangining things. But the red, it seemed was real, and Malfoy saw a hint of a scar on Crabbe's forehead. They quickly ran out of the room. "Professor, they yelled as they bounded up the stairs to where Professor. McGonagall was standing. Meanwhile, Hermione was still stuck in the common room and Malfoy was hanging around her. How am I going to get out of this, she thought, Malfoy is spilling out everything as planned, but How am I going to get out of here before I...But it was too late, she transformed back into herself before she could escape from the room.

(45) "Mudblood" Malfoy yelled, slamming her against the wall. "Umm...hi." she said, nervously. "Hm..." Malfoy was thinking hard. He had spilled all of his plans...but maybe he could fit in one more..."Petrificus Totalus!" he yelled. She stiffened and fell to the floor. Ron and Harry heard Malfoy's shout. "HERMIONE!" they yelled, as they raced back to the Slytherin common room. (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 8/26/2003 9:18:13 AM, Hermiones_Problem)

Suddenly malfoy did the unthinkable thing. he kissed hermoine. her eyes grew wide and then she slapped him and ran off in shock. malfoy just smirked after her thinking, wow. Hermoine was in a daze when she went up to harry and ron and told them what happened. ron turned 10 times redder then his hair and harry turned pretty red to. he did WHAT?! ron yelled at her. h-he kissed me. hermoine said sofly. and did u do anything to the git?! ron said angrily. i slapped him. she said and put a hand over her mouth. i have to go apolagize.
