I'm going to study tonight or die trying. Ernie and I have spent too much time discussing Quidditch tactics instead of our schoolwork and it's starting to show. I was caught completely unaware today in Potions, earning myself an extra ten centimeters on the report that is due in two days. Great. I barely had enough for the requirements so it's back to the library for the book I thought I'd seen the last of. Stupid thing puts me to sleep every time I open it if I'm not careful.
The room is full as I walk in, looking around for Padma out of habit. She'd sleep here if she could. It's like she has to be near ink to keep her heart beating at the right pace.
I see her out of the corner of my eye, half hidden behind a shelf, and turn with a smile...that quickly turns to a frown.
