Carter's POV

After my little meeting with Sadie, I strolled off to the Gryffindor common room. I found Ron and Harry playing a little game of wizard chess by the table while Hermione was sitting on the couch reading some ancient looking book. I sat beside Ron and observed their game quietly.

"Hey guys! Can't you believe Egyptians can do magic as well?" Hermione excitedly hopped towards us. I was definitely scared with her statement.

"I knew that when my family went to Egypt for the summer, remember?" Ron looked up at Hermione with a bored look. I let out a nervous sigh.

"Checkmate." I heard Harry while watching his bishop literally destroying the king. Ron frowned a bit.

"How's your sister anyway, Carter?" I shifted on my chair.

"She's fine I guess. Missing her cat back at home." Hermione raised an eyebrow.

"You know you can bring an owl, a cat or a toad to Hogwarts you know? "

"Didn't know about that." I stood up and went outside to stroll for awhile. I wandered around the corridors absent-mindedly looking for Sadie until I bumped into someone.

"Sorry didn't see you there. I was just looking for my sister." it was Professor McGonagall I realized her eyes were full of concern and sadness.

"Your sister is in the hospital wing. Hagrid found her by the lake passed out, I assume."

I was already running to the hospital wing before Professor McGonagall even finished. Problem was, I didn't know where to go. After a lot of stumbles in weird rooms and few changing staircases, I finally found the hospital wing. I saw Sadie laying on a bed peacefully asleep. I approached her slowly and sat on a stool right beside her. Madame Pomfrey entered the room.

"Don't need to worry she's just asleep. She'll probably wake up an hour or two." she smiled for a moment I was relieved that she wasn't that hurt.

"Who did this to her?" Madame Pomfrey shook her head.

"I don't know. Hagrid said he found her alone by the lake passed out beside her wand." she finished and left without a word.

" I immediately checked her pillow if she had her ivory tablet just in case. I felt only the mattress under the pillow. I hesitated before summoning a Duat to get the tablet. I hurriedly opened the locker thing and concentrated on the tablet. I then felt something hard and rectangular and pulled it out. I placed it under her pillow. I continued to wait for her until I heard a low moan. She fluttered her eyes open.

"Hey Carter. Passed out. Got lots to tell." she choked and tried to sit up on her bed. "What happened?" she shook her head and was about to open her mouth to talk when Malfoy barged in.

"You! What exactly was that thing? I demand answer right now!" his robe was hanging by his left side with his hair frizzed upwards with dark circles forming under his eyes.

"Can't sleep, Malfoy?" Sadie crossed her arms across her chest and narrowed her eyes at him. He stumbled beside her bed and pointed his wand at her. I stood up from my stool in a brotherly instinct.

"Sod off, Malfoy! Get away from my sister." I balled my fists at him. He lowered his wand and staggered out of the room but before he reached the doorway, he tripped and fell face flat. Madame Pomfrey carried him to the opposite bed from Sadie's.

"I'll tell you later, Carter. I think I have an idea why Malfoy is conked out." I stared at her blankly and she rolled her eyes.

After that we went to the library to secretly talk. We managed to sit by the far end of the library.

"Now, remember our little talk by the lake?" I nodded. "Well, after that I had a little run in with Malfoy and Pansy." she continued

" Well, an old friend popped by." I tried to remember what she meant.

"Serpopards came to attack me!" I flinched on that.

"What do they want now?" I asked trying to lower my voice just in case someone might hear. She just shrugged which never helped lighten my mood.

"I hope moose never gets here." Sadie gave me a confused look. I forgot to tell her about the incident so I explained who Leroy was. She paled after that.

"We better be more careful this time." she nodded in agreement.

"Hey Carter! Hi Sadie!" I heard a shrill voice came up. Sadie and I looked up at the same time seeing Hermione with a book that might have weighted a ton.

"Uh, hey." my voice cracked a bit.

"What are you doing here?" I shot an angry look at Sadie for sounding a little bit rude to Hermione.

"Studying of course. We have a test in Potions tomorrow, remember?" she was regarding to Sadie obviously. Sadie half conciously nodded seemingly looking out the window.

"Sadie! Are you even listening to me?" Hermione sounded like a mom but I got used to that. Sadie could've shot a smart comment but she got absorbed on what was going on outside the window.

"Carter!" She looked at me with her eyes brimming with tears not sadness but full of joy.

"What?" I looked out of the window and saw Bast walking towards the castle stomping angrily and assuming her wearing another glamour to go in. Practically Sadie went rushing out of the library to meet Bast. I wanted to go with her but Hermione pulled me back.

"You have explaining to do." she pointed a finger at me. I gulped.

I was sitting by the fireplace in the Gryffindor common room being evaluated by Hermione with Ron and Harry absent-mindingly staring off to space waiting for Hermione to speak.

"What are you exactly?" she crossed her arms and narrowed her eyes at me.

" A wizard just like you obviously." I acted nonchalant but in the inside I was panicking like crazy.

"Are you sure?" she was being difficult I sighed

"If I wasn't a wizard then why am I here?" she taught about it then sighed in defeat.

"Fine then you got a point, but I tell you there's something different about you." I smiled then nodded "Ok then whatever you say." I stood up and walked back up the stairs to the boy's dorms. She has no idea.

Sadie's P.O.V

I was thrilled from the sight of Bast. I met up with her by the Great Hall entrance.

"Bast!" she turned and immediately smiled at the sight of me. She tackled a big hug.

"How did you end up in this place?" she said still hugging me.

"Had no idea but I can explain." she let go and examined me.

"I've been looking all over for you good thing the Duat helped me track you down." she smiled

"Where's Carter anyways? Is he with you?" she asked looking behind me "I thought he was behind me." I faltered

"Maybe he's in his dorm right now." she nodded in agreement "Oh can you be in cat form for now?" she smiled then nodded and turned back into Muffin-form. I picked her up then stroked her back. Things turned out well for once.

I was sitting on a leather armchair in the Slytherin common room with Bast on my lap comfortably sleeping. I was absorbed in the book that I didn't notice Malfoy looking behind me looking over my shoulder.

"What language is that?" I turned and angrily came face to face with a pair of curious stormy eyes.

"It's full of small pictures." he grabbed the spellbook and tried reading it with the book being upside down.

"Its upside down, Malfoy. Give it back!" I snatched the spellbook and immediately closed it.

"Well, you should explain what that thing was that attacked me this morning." I scoffed as if the serpopard wants him.

"Whatever Malfoy. You wouldn't understand anyways." I picked Bast up from my lap and set her down the floor. I hurriedly went up to the girl's dorm avoiding trouble with Malfoy again. I threw the book on the bed then threw myself on it too. I was tired from recent events and fell asleep fast.

A/N: I'm so sorry it was short! I have writer's block right now. And tons of homework and projects, etc. Hope its ok :)
