First Day Back

394 11 8

Katrina's POV

I woke up the next day, took a quick shower, then met up with Hermione at the Gryffindor table. I was about to tell her about my new friend Tom, when I finally spotted them. I crossed my arms and glared at the boy that stood in front of me.

"Hey, Kat!" He said ruffling his hair and grinning down at me. "How was your summer?"

How was my...how was my summer?! Ohhh the nerve of that boy astounded me sometimes. How could he just stand there and act like he hadn't just ignored me when I needed him? I rubbed the bruises on my arms subconsciously as I just stared back at him. They were still sore, but thankfully, our school robes hid them from view.

"And where exactly have you two been?" I spat out as I raised my brows and continued to give him the dirtiest look I could muster.

Harry tilted his head in confusion at the tone in my voice. "Didn't you hear? We had trouble getting through the barrier? As fast as gossip travels around here, I would have thought everyone would know by now. It wouldn't let us through so we decided to use this flying car that Ron's dad had enchanted and in the end we crashed into the Whomping Willow. We missed the feast and McGonagall gave us detention." Harry explained as he sat down next to me. I scootched a little bit away; not comfortable yet with him being so close and hoping he wouldn't notice.

"Well, that was stupid. You guys could have seriously injured yourselves not to mention been expelled!" I burst out, feeling both worried and annoyed at the same time. Harry peered over at me but decided to do the right thing and kept his gob shut and ate his breakfast in silence as I turned to my left and talked to Hermione about our new schedules.

Harry's POV

Ron and I joined Kat and Hermione at breakfast the next day. My heart was still racing from the shock of our crash with the whomping willow. And I still didn't understand why we hadn't been able to get through to Platform 9 3/4! Not to mention Dobby getting me locked up in my room all summer till Ron and his brothers broke me out! It had definitely been an action-packed summer.

"Hey, Kat!" I said as I tried to fix my messy hair while grinning down at her.

She crossed her arms and glared at me as she said, "And where exactly have you two been?" I tilted my head in confusion. Her normally warm twinkling blue eyes had turned to stormy seas as she stared at me with a stony expression. I blinked. It seemed as if she was mad at me for some reason, but I couldn't think of any reason why!

I explained to her about the barrier not letting Ron and I through and then how we missed the feast because we had crashed into the Whomping Willow.

"Well, that was stupid. You guys could have seriously injured yourselves not to mention been expelled!" She cried out as a flicker of worry flashed across her face. My heart lightened as I thought maybe I had misread the situation, but it quickly sank back down as her face settled back into a glare.

I opened my mouth to ask what was wrong but couldn't get the words out and just sat and ate my breakfast in silence as she turned and talked to Hermione. I made a mental note to see if Hermione knew what was wrong after classes were over for the day.

Katrina's POV

The first class of the day was Herbology. I hopped up and down in excitement as Professor Sprout lead us to Greenhouse 3. We'd only been working in Greenhouse 1 last year, but this one housed more dangerous plants and I couldn't wait to learn more about them. I turned and grinned at Neville. Herbology was his best subject and I knew that he was feeling just as ecstatic as me.
