Aeris: Shadowdragon-Z doesn't own anything in this story except his OC Zac Volcanus Dragmire.

Zac: Still can't get used to having a middle name...

Shadowdragon-Z: Again, that's just sad.

Zac: Shut up...

Shadowdragon-Z: Fine, here's the story.

Chapter 8: Aeris' Surprise

Last time:

"I have something to report headmaster." stated Zac in a cool tone.

"Yes?" Dumbledore asked after everyone had become silent.

"It has come to my attention that Mr. Ronald Weasley's pet rat "Scabbers" has been in their family for thirteen years." Zac stated. "This leads me to believe he is an animagus, hiding from something, seeing as how even a magical rat can only live for ten years."

"This is indeed disturbing Professor Dragmire, what did you intend to do?" asked Dumbledore.

"I was thinking of asking Aeris here," Zac motioned to me, "use a spell to force the rat to take human form if it is an animagus."

"Very well, Aeris, please perform this spell as soon as you can." Dumbledore said as he looked at me with that twinkle in his eye.

"Yes headmaster, it should only take about one day at the most to complete the spell. So if you would, I ask that you find a substitute for my class until I have finished." I replied.

now back to the story/Aeris POV

"How's it goin'!" yelled Zac as he hit my back.

"OW! Would you not do that ever again please?" I snapped back.

"Geez, sorry. By the way, did you know you have two big lumps on your back near your shoulder blades?"

"No, now leave me alone so I can finish this sp...wait what?"

"Yeah, I think you may finally be growing those wings I told you about back when you got bitten by that basilisk." Isn't that awesome? Now we can fly without you having to use that stupid broom."

"But why am I just growing them now?"

"I don't know, but would you hurry up and finish growing them so we can go flying!"

"I can't speed up the rate at which my wings grow you idiot!"

"Aww, why not?"

"Because it's not physically possible!"

"Damn you're moody today..."

"That's IT!"

"What's IT?"

"It is what I need to finally finish that potion to power the spell for turning the rat into its human form."

"Sweet. I'll go jack the rat."

"Fine, just close the door on your way out ok?"

"Sure thing."

in the Gryffindor common room/Zac POV

"There you are!" I exclaimed as I grabbed the rat and started to leave.

"Scabbers? Scabbers! Give him back!" yelled that idiot Ron.


"Because he's my pet!"

"Well then I'm going to borrow him for a while."

"Give him back now!"

"I don't feel like it. Why don't you ask again in a few hours?" I said as I ran back to Aeris' office. The idiot child was following me.

in Aeris' office/Aeris POV

"Give him back!" yelled a voice that sounded like a student.

"No!" yelled Zac's unmistakable voice.

"What's going on here!" I yelled as I threw open the door.

"He stole Scabbers!" yelled Ron pointing at Zac.

"Who me?" asked Zac as he pointed to himself and handed Scabbers to me at the same time.

"You just took him!" I yelled back at him as Scabbers tried to escape.

"Maybe." replied Zac.

"You were supposed to ask Ron to bring him!"

"Well it's my job to abuse the godlike powers that I have been given to anger and annoy my students in any and all ways possible."

"Can I have Scabbers back now?" asked Ron politely.

"As soon as I'm done with this spell." I replied.

"Thanks!" said Ron as he looked at Zac and stuck out his tounge.

"Why you little..." growled Zac as we all went into my office for the spell.

to be continued...

A/N: Well how was it? Personally I liked it when Zac said "Well it's my job to abuse the godlike powers that I have been given to anger and annoy my students in any and all ways possible." It was so freakin' badass! Next time They call the other teachers and used the spell, but something else happens.
