Chapter 12, Silens I
I faint memory is always something that leads us back to somewhere regretful, although memories will only be gone for a period of time. Each memory slowly comes back, even if it is just having a morning with a cup of coffee, or a taste of a bitter regret, you always soon remember things. Most if the times, you don't remember the things you do, it's forgotten for eternity of darkness. You wish you knew why, but it's not certain. Whenever you need a memory the most, it's not certain it'll show up, but if you wait, and have your patience drift off slowly, the memory will come back. It's maybe anger that you feel when memories fade the come back, but they come when needed, and you might not realize it, but being late on a special evening to forget is terribly often. It's good to remember it's not for long. And-
I paused for a minute, taking in my current surroundings. I was in my dorm on an obsidian colored couch, while Lucas sat next to me, humming a tune that probably got stuck in his head. My gaze lowered to the book in my hands. It was a deep black with gold trimming along the edges. I opened it once more to observe the dusty pages, the papers turning a dark yellowish from many years of use. I looked to a clock that hung up on the steel grey walls of the dorm. My eyes widened a fraction before I hastily stood, forgetting Lucas, whom looked rather confused on the plush couch. It was almost time for Transfiguration with Mr. Glentonburg. Grabbing my wand I pushed Lucas off the couch. "Where are we going?" he asked. "It's almost time for our first class, and I can't leave you behind." I snapped at him as we speed walked through Hogwarts. Finally arriving there, we sat at our assigned seats. I sighed myself in, as Lucas did same. We sat in our seats, near a girl named Midnight.
She was staring at me for some odd reason, as I gave her a cold glare and ripped my eyes from hers. She seemed startled, as if she didn't expect it. I huffed and glanced at Mr. Glentonburg. He was speaking in a quick manner about some spells I could care less about. "Mr. Malfoy, since you seem to be paying attention, why don't you show the class how the spell Incarcifors works?" He said with a bit of sarcasm. Oh, that's right. Today, we were learning how to transfigure material objects. I whipped out my wand and stood from my seat. I waved it around for a bit until I saw Mr. Glentonburg's desk slowly twist around him, wrapping him inside the prison it was evolving into. A small smirk played on my lips when I saw him fully incased in the wood walls. He grunted before reversing the spell sent a harsh glare my way. "Good. Could use a little practice." Good? Good? Good?! I thought I did great! No, I know I did great! Right when I was going to rant about how I excellent I was, the bell rang. Students piled out the door as I turned to leave. I remembered the next class I had to go to was Charms. It had also dawned on me that Asia would be there, but that wasn't something I dwelled on.
I walked through the halls of Hogwarts, constant chattering filled the halls. I heard sudden movements, like steps following me. I looked around, my instinct turned my eyes turned around, looking at a girl with dark black hair, pale skin with a glowing necklace. It was the same girl as before, I reckon her name was Midnight, of course I'm not too sure. She looked at me as a surprised expression ran across her face. "Hi," she said, I stared, not saying anything for a small amount of time. "I'm Tom," I said, coming closer to her. "Midnight, Midnight Lulumoon," she announced herself, but I still wasn't sure that was her name. "Tom Malfoy," I faced my head to her necklace, it was a crescent moon glowing a bright blue. "Where'd you get that?" I asked, smirking. "My father gave it to me," she whispered. "But, I don't have one now," she continued. "At least you have something from him." She acted puzzled almost, though it seemed rather obvious she didn't know what she was doing. "Do you have one?" she asked, looking at her black shoes. "No," I said quietly. "Then you'd understand."
"Well, Midnight, what house are you in?" she seemed like a Ravenclaw, but I was mighty wrong. "Slytherin, pureblood, you?" I thought for a moment, holding my breath. "Pureblood, Slytherin." "It seems like we'll get along then?" she added, as I looked at the time. "Maybe," I looked at her in the eye, blue orbs, much like mine. "Well, I don't really have 'friends' here at Hogwarts, and I share a dorm with someone named Lucy Moondice. She's rather a pain, to be honest. Can I switch dorms with you? If, of course, you have a friend in you dorm," she said, as I started thinking, clueless on what to say. "Ace is my roommate, and so is my brother. Sure," I said with hesitance with my voice. "Great! Tom, was it?" she said, excited to get away from her roommate. "Yes, my roommate is Ace Stonewit," she glared at me on the name Stonewit. "That's a peculiar name," she said, looking at my ring, a Slytherin ring. She stared at it, then looked back into my eyes. "Well, bye Tom. Won't be the last time seeing you." She left from sight, as I was off to my next class.
I headed off to the next class, my head raised high. It was charms, something I wasn't the best at. I ran down the halls almost, realizing how long my conversation was with Midnight was. I walked in, Mr. Flitwick rather inpatient with the students that seemed to be rumored to be waking up Hufflepuff first yearers. "Hello, Prof. Flitwick," I headed towards where I had to sign my name in, signing my name in, Tom Malfoy. Prof. Flitwick smiled, but it was a rather short one, an almost smile to be exact. I sat down, noticing Lucas wasn't in class. He must of been late, but of course, he did have lessons he had to go to. And I was still expelled, bit tomorrow I was out of suspension. "Alright, class! We will be trying out a spell! It's called Laformora, where you see you whole family tree from the tree given to you," he pointed his own tree, where he carefully dropped some blue water like substance on his tree. His tree had strong branches, and was rather large. I looked to mine, as it was nearly a twig.
Faces turned up, and he was one of the three from three other happy children smiling. Prof. Flitwick laughed a little, looking at one boy with a big, happy smile. "Now, you try! Crush the berries given," he pointed at blue and red berries, as I crushed the red one, having a white inside. The blue ones made the color, as it stained my hands a bit when I crushed them. I poured some on, as only Mum's face and Lucas's showed up. It reminded me on how distant my family was. "Okay then, if your family members are few, in means that you have no contact with them, you are very distant," Prof. Flitwick smiled at his family tree, and I stared at mine. If it even was a tree, it had no leaves, and was just a twig.
