Summary: Abigail Yaxley never had it easy in life. She won't have it easy at school either. She falls in love with a certain Weasley, but her father disagrees and things go south for the couple pretty fast. In the end, she ends up alone and hurt and shuts herself down completely. Until... one man that loved her for a long time comes by and helps her out.

Author's Note: There might be some strong language from time to time. Abigail is not afraid to speak without curtains.

Who could've ever imagined the beginning of the school year to be as full of events as it was for Hogwarts' students? They found out the school will host the Triwizard Tournament, the Yule Ball in the winter, the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher... too many things to focus on. Well, the first two weren't something to worry about, but the teacher was. He was scaring the students with his bold and direct way of teaching, and his examples were disturbing for the majority of the kids.

"Have you heard what Moody did with the fourth year? He showed them the Unforgivables. Is he mad or something?" one of the older students asked during dinner.

"Well... he's named Mad-Eye-Moody, isn't it? He might be as crazy as his nickname, right?" another one answered, a bit disturbed.

On the other side of the table, another student sighs. "Don't you have better things to talk about? I'm so done with hearing that the poor babies who got scared during a DADA class. Yes, that man is mad to the core, but it's already getting old to talk about him. Focus on something else, would you?" she sharply told them and glared over the table at the two students.

"Something like what, Yaxley?" one asked, suspicious.

"Yule Ball? A partner?" she replied, smirking a bit.

"Oh, we already have partners, Yaxley. You're the only Slytherin who doesn't have, by the way."

"I'd instead go alone than with any of you buffoons. You're only interested in money and fame and that, boys, I can get for myself, thank you." the girl stood up and left the table, leaving the two males to stare at her on her way out.

"Picky this one, I tell you. She's either sending anyone who tried to flirt with her to the hospital wing, or she humiliates them in front of half of the school. What's wrong with her?" the Slytherin boys changed their focus on their housemate.

"Maybe she's already promised to someone outside the school? Yaxley's aren't so famous, and maybe she already had a secret engagement with a wealthy family." the other continued.

"Why don't you two shut your mouths, huh? Maybe she's so picky and difficult because you are superficial." another voice stopped them. This time it was none other than one of the Weasleys, Fred. "I've seen some of her encounters with Slytherins. Trying to win her over with expensive presents and sweet talk? Not gonna happen. Threatening her? She'll answer back. Learn how to flirt, boys." the Gryffindor concluded and turned to leave.
