"So today, we are going to get familiar with the potion called Amortentia," Professor O'Donoghue announces to the entire class once everyone is settled down.
Louis tries to muffle a yawn, and discreetly crosses his arms on his table; ready to take a quick nap, since he's in the back of the room, he won't be seen, won't he? The professor turns around, his back to the class, as he looks for his book on his desk. This time, Louis doesn't hide his yawn and he glances besides him when Zayn lets out a snort.
"What?" Louis asks defensively.
Zayn shrugs, smirking. "Nothing."
But Louis apparently feels the need to explain himself. "I've had a long morning and I always feel a bit drained after lunch, okay?"
His friend only shrugs again, smile still present on his face. Louis rolls his eyes and rests his head on his arms. If he closed his eyes for just three seconds... Yeah, just three seconds. A micro nap?
"Louis Tomlinson!" Louis' head snaps up, and everyone's eyes fall on him as the professor leans back against his desk, book in his hands.
Normally, Louis would not be that tempted to doze in the middle of Potions. Not that the class is boring, far from that, and the professor is fit, like. Really fit. For a professor, that is. The man has piercing blue eyes, short black hair and wonderful stubble that Louis imagined so many times scratching his skin. And oh, okay he should not have this kind of thoughts about his professor, but the man is fit, okay.
Also, Louis loves Potions. It is relevant to mention it. But it is always hard to get back into the academy life after a great summer. Although Louis missed Hogwarts, he totally is not primed to start his sixth year.
Louis feels Zayn elbow him, and he realises the professor has asked him something. "Erm, sorry?"
Professor O'Donoghue's fierce eyes don't drop from Louis' face, he looks like he is going to scold Louis, but instead he repeats, "What can you tell us about Amortentia?"
Okay, easy. Louis can totally answer this. He really loves Potions, so there is not one thing he does not know about evert single potion that exists in this world. Especially when it comes to Amortentia.
He sits up straight in his chair and clears his throat. "Amortentia is the most powerful love potion to ever exist. It is also considered dangerous, especially towards the person under the effect of the potion."
The professor closes his book while nodding. "Major effect of the potion?" he inquires.
"It causes a powerful infatuation or obsession in the drinker," Louis answers automatically.
O'Donoghue nods again, satisfied, and then starts pacing in the classroom. "Very good, ten points for Slytherin." Louis grins and elbows Zayn playfully who only rolls his eyes, although a fond smile is making its way on his face.
