The next day when we went down stairs we saw Hermione and Ron fighting about what there pets until they saw me and Harry. Ron smiled at both of us and Hermione smiled at Harry then glared at me.

We had some food before we left for Hogwarts. On the way Ron told us about his family's trip to Romania. Hermione kept on throughing glares at me.

When we finally got to Plat form nine and three quarters and bored the train all the places were filled except for one with a man asleep in the corner. I instantly new that it was Lupin.


"That's Professor Remus J. Lupin. He's our new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher this year." I said making Hermione glare at me since I cut her off.

"How is it you know everything?" Ron said.

"It's on his suitcase, Ronald." I said pointing at the name.

"No, it says Professor R.J. Lupin not Professor Remus J. Lupin. How'd you know his name is Remus?" Hermione asked glaring at me.

"Forget how she knows his name I need to tell you something." Harry said closing the compartment door. Harry told us about what told him.

"Let' get this straight, Sirius Black has escaped from Azkaban to come after?" I said a little scared. I knew I paled a little when he nodded.

"But they'll catch Black soon, won't they?" said Hermione.

"Oh, sure. Except no one's ever escaped from Azkaban before and Black's a murder." Ron said.

"Harriet, you really should take this problem seriously," said Hermione. "Don't go looking for trouble."

"Harry doesn't go looking for trouble, trouble usually finds him," Ron said laughing.

Just then, the train jerked to a stop, the lights went out, and everything went cold.

"There's something moving out there," Ron squeaked. The water and the windows turned to ice. The train kept on jerking forward for some reason.

"Bloody hell what's happening?" Ron said looking really scared as I clung to Harry.

Then a hooded figure came and opened the compartment door. Scabbers hid in Ron's jacket and Crookshanks hissed then hid behind Hermione. It looked around until his gaze fell on Harry.

It started doing something to Harry, making Harry look paler by the minute until Lupin woke up and did a spell that made a bright light appear causing the thing to go away.

When I looked back at Harry he was passed out on the floor witch scared me since I didn't know what that thing was and what it did to Harry. When woke up I was more than relieved to see he was alright.

"Harry, thank god you okay." I said as I handed him his glasses. I then noticed Crookshanks was sitting near Harry's head watching him get up making me smile at the intelligence of that cat.

"Thanks." Harry said as he took his glasses.

"Here eat this," Lupin said holding out a piece of chocolate for Harry, "Don't worry it's chocolate."

"What was that thing?" Harry said, as he took the chocolate and took a bite.

"That was a Dementor. They were looking for Sirius Black. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to have a little chat with the driver. Just keeping eating your chocolate and you'll be fine."

"Did any of you faint?" Harry asked looking embarrassed.

"No." I said shaking my head.

"did any of you hear it?"

"Hear what?"

"A woman screaming."

"Harry, no one screamed." I said and everyone was quiet for the rest of the ride. When we got to Hogwarts and the sorting was done Malfoy felt like making our live more fun, not.

"Potter is it true? You fainted?" Malfoy sneered.

"Leave him alone, Malfoy." I said

"Looks like you got little girlfriend." Before any of us could say anything Dumbledore gave a speech and told us about our new D.A.D.A. and about the Dementors to guard the castle and not to get in they're way. After dinner all four of us head up to the common room and went to bed.

The next morning, I had Divination. Professor Trelawney was in other words, crazy. She was full of rubbish and went crazy when she saw Harry's tea cup had the sign of the Grim, but we ignored it.

On the way to Care for Magical Creatures, Hermione kept raving about how Divination was a waste of time. When we got to Hagrid's hut he said he had a surprise for us and led us into the forest.

Once there, Hagrid told us to open our books by opening the spine. Nevile though didn't and the book attacked him.

"I think they're funny." Hermione said.

"Oh yeah, really funny. God this place has gone to the dogs. Wait till my father hears they have this oaf teaching classes."

"Shut up Malfoy." Harry said walking towards him.

"Dementor! Dementor!" Draco yelled pointing at something but there weren't any Dementors any where. I grabbed Harry before he could do anything.

"Just ignore him." I whispered to Harry.

Hagrid coughed getting our attention.

"Ta da! Say hello to Buckbeack." he said standing next to a creature with front legs, wings, and head of a giant eagle and the body, hind legs and tail of a horse.

"Hagrid, what is that?" Ron asked.

"That Ron is a hippogriff. Now, firs' thing yeh gotta know abou' hippogriffs is, they're proud. Easily offended, hippogriffs are. Don't never insult one, 'cause it might be the last thing yeh do. Now, who wants to say hello?" At that everyone backed away except Harry.

I was scared as Harry approached Buck but even more when Harry was placed on top of Buckbeack and it took off. After a while Harry and Buckbeak came back.

"Well done Harry!." I said happy to see him in one peace.

"Your not dangerous at all, are you, you great ugly brute." Malfoy said walking up to it. The Buckbeack scratched him on his arm and before he could you do anything else Hagrid stepped in and stooped him then took Draco to the hospital wing.

We then went to study hall. During study hall Seamus came in with the daily prophet saying that Black had been spotted near Hogwarts making everyone get worked up. In the picture of Black he looked really crazy. After study hall we had D.A.D.A.

Today we were going to learn about a boggart. We learned that there was a charm that repelled them called Riddikulus.

Neville had to demonstrate. When to boggart came out it took the form of Professor Snape then he did the charm and then Snape was wearing his grandmother's close making everyone laugh.

We got into a line and each took turns facing the boggart. It was fun watching people make their worst fears become something funny.

When it was Harry's turn the boggart turned into a Dementor before Lupin put himself in front of him making the boggart turn into an image of the full moon.

"Riddikulus," He said turning the moon into a balloon that flew into the chest, "Class dismissed," he said "Svetlana can I have a word with you after class?"

"Yes sir." When everyone was gone I asked, "What did you want to talk to me about?"

"Now I'm sure you know what I am and I know what you are."


"Yes. There's a potion called Wolfsbane that'll allow you to keep your human brain while in your wolf form during the full moon. Now, come to my office every evening before the full moon's out to take the potion. Then if you want, you could come with me to the shrieking shack instead of the forbidden forest."

"I'd like that a lot. But sir how long will I be in my wolf form?"

"Only when there is the full moon."

"Thank you Professor." I said before walking out of the class room.
