Harry was getting worried. Rose had gone off alone for about an hour and when she came back she seemed totally detached from everyone. 'Could she have heard..?' Harry couldn't believe what he had been saying about her. Last time he did she nearly died and he still hadn't forgiven himself for that. She was sitting near the fire with Draco and even though she was sitting in his arms it was as if she weren't even in the same room as them. Her far away stare was getting more intense by the minute. Draco seemed to notice to, but was at a loss for what he should do. Ron and Hermione were off in their own conversation about some homework Ron had 'accidently' forgotten about.
"Ron. Professor Moody is going to have your neck." Hermione said as Ron rolled his eyes.
"Yeah well, I'm no good at writing essays."
"That doesn't mean the homework is optional." Hermione crossed her arms in frustration. "Do you really need another detention?" Ron had been in detention several times this year. Snape was h

"Please, Please. Do it again." Rose and Ginny sat in front of the Head Mistresses desk. They had shown her how Ginny could use her magic only when touching Rose and then they showed her again, and again, and now she was asking again. She sat there with bright eyes and an amused expression. It was just like seeing a baby discover how amusing a rattle is. Ginny held her wand up and waved it. Nothing happened. Then Rose touched her on the shoulder and a silver trail of light hung in the air in front of them. If it was possible McGonagall looked even more amused then she did the first few times.
"So Professor? Am I going to have to go to all of her classes?" Rose asked.
The silver line was still hanging in the air and McGonagall seemed to be in deep thought as she stared at it. Rose removed her hand from Ginny's arm and the line disappeared and McGonagall looked like she had been knocked upside the head.
"Of course not." She answered quickly. Rose sighed in relief. "You don't need to go to

There was something familiar about her dream that made her very uneasy. Then it hit her. The same grassy knoll, the same wildflowers, it was the dream she had with Fred. Only, Fred wasn't there.
"So what in the world am I doing here again?" She asked herself as her words echoed off into nothingness. "Maybe it will be normal." She hoped. "Lets see. What do I usually do in a normal dream?" She smiled to herself. "Duh, of course, I don't do anything normal." She started running down the hill jumping up as high as she could. But when she expected to start flying she fell on her face. "OW!" She rubbed her nose in pain. "Crap." She stood up and jumped again but landed right back on her feet. She was getting frustrated. "It's my dream dammit!" She yelled at the top of her lungs.
She kicked at the grass and clenched her fists. Then she turned around and saw a body laying on the ground. Forgetting her anger she walked towards the body and bent down. Her face went pale as she realized who it was

"You know, Ginny, it's kind of a bummer that you aren't at Hogwarts anymore." Rose said with a sad look as she packed up her clothes.
"Yeah, I wonder if my magic will ever come back." Ginny was unconsciously swishing her wand around. "Lumos." She murmured.
"You know that is just gonna make you depressed." Rose sat next to Ginny as she ignored her and swished it around some more. Ginny leaned against Rose in frustration.
"I wish it would just work!" She swished the wand one last time and to her surprise a red light shot out and set her curtain on fire. "OH MY GOD!" She jumped up and down in excitement. "I DID IT!" Rose looked from Ginny's curtain to Ginny and wondered what the heck just happened.
"Great, now put out that fire." Rose said happily in a panic.
"Aguamenti!" She shouted and pointed her wand at the growing fire. Nothing happened and her bottom lip quivered slightly.
"Auguamenti." Rose said from behind her and put the fire out before it got out of control.
"So what the heck."

"You don't remember?" Sirius gritted his teeth trying to hold back his annoyance. He had waited three days for Rose to wake up from her temporary coma just to be told that she couldn't remember anything.
"No, what happened?" She asked in confusion.
"You have been comatose for three days because of some wierd explosion while we were camping." Hermione explained. "Ginny and I had to be sent here for some pretty nasty burns." She gestered to the hospital they were now in. They had brought Rose to St. Mungos to see if they could give them any answers. The only thing they could tell them was that she had been over exhausted to the point that she slipped into a coma.
Rose looked around the room she was in and found there were three other occupants. One was an elderly wizard who sat in bed with a stubborn look on his face while an old woman fussed over him. The other two were middle aged wizards that were sleeping.
"I can't believe it has been thirty years." The elderly witch was crying into

The dark circles under Rose's eyes had returned, and she had pains in her stomach. "Life hates me." She said to herself in the conveniently placed mirror inside of the tent. She couldn't sleep because of the stomach pain so she settle for trying to figure out what Draco's reaction to her Christmas present was.
"OH, I loved it to death." Rose snorted loudly. 'Yeah, not in a million kazillion years.'
"Twas, pretty good, I liked the part when Belle pushed Gaston in the mud." 'Yeah he probably loved that part.'
"I cried when the Beast was stabbed." Rose laughed wholeheartedly at that. 'When pigs fly.' She stopped mid laugh. 'Wait, when hell freezes over. Pigs could probably fly in todays world.'
While she thought of other scenario's she unconsciously fiddled with the golden bracelet on her wrist.
Rose jumped a little at the sound and turned to see what it was. She couldn't see much in the dark tent so she walked out into the middle of the tent and brought out her wand. "Lumos." Sh

"That was just as awesome as I remember it." Ginny said as she and Rose walked back to the house. Everyone was still watching the two girls, who had just finished flying on Rose's broom. The whole scenario was pretty entertaining to watch, just to see Ginny's face light up as she twisted and turned through ther air. There was nothing in the world that compared to Rose's flying, and how Ginny used to fly. As the two girls walked toward the crowd Ginny wrapped an arm around Rose's shoulders.
"Yeah, it's definitely not too hard to understand why Seamus always had a hard time keeping up with us." Rose said with a far off look.
"Yea well, we were pretty great together." It had been far too long since either of the girls had flown that it got Rose wondering what the Griffindor team would do if the school ever went back to playing Quidditch. Ginny wouldn't be there and Rose wouldn't have anyone to rely on. Seamus was a good player, but if they ever went up against the Slytherins ever again th

"Merry Christmas!" Shouted Ginny making Hermione and Rose jump in surprise. Both girls had been sleeping quite comfortably before the red head disturbed them. Then to follow up her merriment Ginny jumped onto the bed and bounced up and down just to make sure the two girls didn't go back to sleep.
"Ginny, I definitely don't understand how you always wake up so early." Rose said trying to cover her head with the blanket to block out the light. Just as she had finally accomplished it the blanket was pulled off the bed sending an unwelcome breeze upon the two girls. "Ahh!"
"BRRrrr." Hermione wrapped her arms around herself and shivered.
"Oh come on, it's not that cold." Ginny walked to the trunks at the foot of the bed and opened them. Rose, finally awake, looked around the room and saw many Quidditch posters hanging everywhere. There were also a few posters of young wizards whom she didn't recognize as being Quidditch players. Then before she could look anymore something landed on her fac

"Hey!" Draco yelled just before Rose boarded the Hogwarts Express. Rose turned to him with a smile. "I mean it, don't open that until Christmas." Rose just smiled and waved at him before boarding the train.
"Come on guys, move move move." She pushed Harry and Ron forward quickly to get to her seat before the train could leave. They found their usual compartment and Rose sat by the window with Hermione beside her and Harry and Ron on the other side. Rose opened the window and stuck her head out to wave to Draco. She looked around for a moment to find him in the crowd and once she spotted him he was smiling up at her. "I miss you already!" she yelled to him, and although she couldn't here him over the crowd she new he was laughing.
"So Rose." Hermione said. "What did you get Draco for Christmas?"
"A book." She smirked at Ron who was pretending to read the 'History of Vampires' book Hermione got him for Christmas.
Hermione's face lit up. "Really?"
"Yup." Rose confirmed.
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
