You can't choose family. A Hogwarts tale.
This story is pretty self explanatory. It's short to start with but I have to get it to the part where it works better for a story. I hope you enjoy it and like it I guess. I really don't ask for much, I'm not going to say "three comments or no next chapter" But I'm always super excited, like I start bunching on my desk chair excited, when I see I have a new comment for anything.
Aunt Cissy tried to train the Muggle lovingness(Is that a word?) out of me all summer. While Draco got to have fun, well his idea of fun, I was forced to sit and listen to Aunt Cissy talk about how bad Muggles, Muggle borns and blood traitors were. Half bloods werenâ€™t as bad but it was a good idea to stay away from them. When I went to get my school books with Draco and Uncle Lucius we bumped into Hermione, Harry, Ron and the rest of he Weasleyâ€™s. Uncle Lucius dropped a book into the youngest Weasleyâ€™s cauldron. Weird. I had heard him talking about something about having to get rid of his masterâ€™s old stuff.
Now finally I was on the train to Hogwarts. Itâ€™s hard to tell whatâ€™s worst. Home and have my Aunt bug me non-stop or Hogwarts where Iâ€™m alone and no one talks to me. I know I should stop complaining but itâ€™s hard when itâ€™s one of the only things I can think about.
The year started to go by pretty much the same. I was good in all my classes, I had tons of time to study and I read books by the lake. Then kids started to be petrified. It had gotten really scary and everyone thought that it was Harry doing the petrifying because he could speak parsletoung(sp?) and that was something Salazar Slytherin could do. I think it through every night if I could be him. Tonight I decide that it canâ€™t be him.
I wake up and head down stairs. I find Harry sitting on the Common room couch alone. Heâ€™s staring into the fire.
â€œHarry, I know coming from me. Well I know this means nothing because you probably donâ€™t trust me and I know you donâ€™t like me but I donâ€™t believe that you could possibly be the one to open the Chamber of Secretâ€™s. Not because I know who would or who is. Donâ€™t give me that look. But because you donâ€™t seem like that kind of person. Bye Harry.â€ He gave me a why are you talking to me look and I started to walk out.
â€œLulu, wait.â€ Harry got off the couch and came up to me.
â€œIt means a lot that someone believes me other than my friends. So thanks.â€ Harryâ€™s looking into my eyes.
â€œIâ€™m just telling you the truth, Bye.â€ I walk out and head to breakfast.
I havenâ€™t talked to Harry since or anyone but sometimes Harry would catch my eye and give a small smile.
â€œExcuse me, but can I go to the bathroom Prof. Flitwick?â€ I ask in the middle of class. Itâ€™s getting close to the end of the year and now even Hermione Granger is pertrfied.
â€œSure Miss. Lestrange.â€ I walk past the closest girls bath room and head to Moaning Myrtles. No one ever goes in there.
The weird thing about her bathroom is that thereâ€™s a snake insignia on one of the sinks.
â€œWhy hello murder.â€ That was always Myrtles greeting.
â€œHello little Miss deadly annoying.â€ Ok so itâ€™s not a good comeback but what ever.
â€œYou know I died in this very bathroom.â€ She told me this every time I came in here.
â€œI do know this Myrtle.â€
â€œBut do you know how I died. I got out of the bathroom stall and looked up and saw big yellow eyes and I died.â€
â€œThatâ€™s great Myrtle.â€
â€œYou know. Youâ€™re one of the only people who come in here. Harry Potter used to come here with his friends but he stopped.â€
â€œOk Myrtle. But I have to go now.â€ I leave and go back to class.
That night Ginny Weasley was taken into the Chamber. I have to tell Harry and Ron what Myrtle told me. Even if they already know more. It could be important.
â€œHarry! Ron!â€ I find them in a hallway and tell them what I know.
â€œMyrtle said that?â€ Ron asks me.
â€œYa and I know you may not believe but ask her yourself if you want.â€ They do. I run after them and Harry pieces everything together. They seem to forget that Iâ€™m a Lestrange for the moment and I run with them to Prof. Lockhartâ€™s room.
They grab Lockhart and bring him to the chamber. Lockhart tries to erase our memories but it back fires for some reason and hits him instead which causes a blast and blocks Harry off from me, Ron and Lockhart by a pile of rocks.
â€œHarry! Are you alright!â€ I call.
â€œYa Iâ€™m fine! Iâ€™ll look for Ginny. You two keep Lockhart from doing anymore damage and try to clear a path for me and Ginny when weâ€™re coming back out!â€
Me and Ron made a whole in the rocks which Lockhart them fell though.
â€œDang it! Ron can you help me lift Lockhart.â€
â€œSure Lulu.â€ We grab him out of the small whole and then Harry and Ginny come up.
I feel really awkward now. Harry, Ron and Ginny are all hugging and Lockhart has no idea whatâ€™s happening. After we fly out I go one way and the others go to find Dumbledore or Prof. McGonagall, I canâ€™t remember. I bet things go back to normal. Tomorrow Iâ€™m going to wake up and Harry and Ron will pretend this didnâ€™t happen.
I wake up and well todayâ€™s the day weâ€™re going home. Harry and Ron didnâ€™t completely ignore me but they didnâ€™t talk to me. On the train Iâ€™m looking for an empty compartment when I pass Harry.
â€œHey Lulu. Wanna come sit with Ron, Hermione and me?â€
â€œThanks Harry.â€ I follow Harry and sit with him and the others. Thereâ€™s kind of an awkward silence but what ever. I have someone to sit with.
The train pulls into the station and I get off. By the end of the ride weâ€™d started to laugh and actually have fun talking.
â€œLulu, come on! We need to go!â€ Draco grabs my hand as I walk out of the compartment. Time for another summer with the Family.
