Visions and Riddles
"Sam!" Lily moaned and I flinched. "I thought when you and Sirius got together, you would stop with the lying."
"I know and I'm sorry." I sat down on my bed and let my head fall into my hands. "How was I supposed to tell them what I did, I can barely believe I did it myself."
"You make a deal with the devil, you gotta pay the price," Lily replied.
"I promise that I will tell him, just not now. Just let me tell him, 'kay?" I said, my eyes pleading.
Lily looked into my eyes, smiled and replied, wearily, "fine."
I clapped my hands, "yay! You're the best friend ever!"
"But-" She started.
"Not the but!"
"Let me finish. But if you don't tell him by the end of the day tomorow, I will."
"A day? That's all you're giving me?"
"Yes, you should have told him now. I'm being generous with the day, I shouldn't have given you anything."
"But it's a school day, I won't get a chance."
"Deal with it!" Lily said, agitated.
I childishly stuck my tongue out at her. She couldn't help but laugh. We both slipped into our PJs and went to bed. Before I slept, I secretly took grabbed one of the bottles that Tara and Laura gave me and took a swig. I looked under my bed and realised that I didn't have many left. I made a mental note to ask Tara for more tomorrow. And with that I fell into asleep.
I knew I was dreaming but the shimmering edges of the dream reminded me it was a vision of the future. It looked like the last vision I had but instead of a dress, this time I was wearing my school uniform.
I saw myself, running outside. The other me sat down on a patch of grass and put her head in her hands.
"Sam?â€ a voice called, it was Sirius. He ran over to me. â€œAre you alright? You ran out after Cale came in.â€
"Iâ€™m fine, just tired.â€ I replied shakily.
Sirius sat next to her and took her hand. She rested her head on his shoulder. â€œIf only I could freeze this moment, right now, and we could just stay like this forever,â€ Sirius said, wonderingly.
â€œIf only,â€ she breathed. Sirius stared down at their intertwined hands and sighed. He opened his mouth to say something but someone behind them called out, â€œSam!â€ I knew that voice, I would know it anywhere, it was Gale. The other me, though seemed confused. She got up and started walking over to Gale but didn't seem in control of her legs. Or her hands which reached around Gale's throat which no one but me could see coming as she was doing it at superhuman speed.
"Sam," Gale choked, "what are you doing?"
"I don't know," the other me replied. She looked scared, she was crying. "I can't stop."
"/Realishio/" Sirius shouted, pointing his wand at her hands but nothing happened. "/Realishio/" he yelled again, desperately. He looked around, wildly, for another spell."/Stupefy/" He shouted but again the spell bounced harmlessly off.
I was shouting for the other me to stop. Then the strangest thing happened. I walked towards myself but it was like pushing through a veil. I went from observing it, to actually being there. All eyes looked at me.
"How did-" Sirius said looking from me to the other me and back.
I didn't even think, just pulled out my wand and shouted, "/Realishio/", putting all my force behind it. The other me was thrown off Gale and went flying, about 10 feet back. I ran over to her and wrestled her to the ground.
"Who the hell are you?" She shouted.
"Isn't it obvious?" I asked.
"That I fell asleep and had a vision of the future and felt the desperate need to help and so walked through the veil between the present and future, causing me to stop you from killing my best friend. Duh!" I kept my hands on her wrists, firmly pinning her to the ground and looked behind me to where Sirius was standing over Gale who was lying on the floor. "Gale," I shouted, "get out of here. She's been bewitched or cursed or something. Gale?" I was confused, why wasn't he moving? Then logic caught up with me. "Gale?" I said, quietly. A tear rolled down my cheek.
Sirius looked up and shook his head. I gasped. Then, before I could shout I was back in my bed. I sat up, gasping and sweating. I got out of bed and walked across the room. I had my hand on the doorknob when Lily sat up, looking around, sleepily.
"Sam, what are you doing?" she asked, wearily.
"I'm just going for a walk, go back to sleep, Lils" I wispered.
Lily lay back down. "You know you'll get caught, right?" she wispered.
"I don't think so," I said smililing, deviously. I slipped out the door and tiptoed over to the boys dormitry. I slipped in the door and looked around me. All the boys were sleeping soundly. "/Accio cloak/" I wispered and James' invisibility cloak came flying out into my hand. I turned to leave when I heard James talking. I spun around but he was just talking in his sleep.
"I love you too, Evans," he wispered, smiling. I couldn't help but smile.
I walked past Frank Longbottom's bed. He was smiling and talking in his sleep as well. "Nice as*s, Sam" he wispered.
To this day, I still don't know how I possessed the self control to walk out of that room with out a single act of violence towards Frank. But I did. I turned on heel and left. I slipped out the portrait hole and put the cloak on. I hurried all the way to the Ravenclaw common room. I ran up the spiral staircase and quickly knocked with the eagle-shaped bronze knocker. It was extremely loud and I was surprised no one heard me. I remebered someone saying that I had to answer a riddle to get in so I braced myself for it.
The beak of the eagle opened and said, in a soft, musical voice:
Looks can be deceiving,
But my sadness is healing.
All's not lost when you hear my song,
In flames I'm born and in flames I'm gone.
What am I?"
Yeah, yeah, it's been ages, blah blah blah. I said I'll try to be on as much as possible. the only reason I finished this chapter is because I'm off school sick! Well, enjoy! Oh and leave a comment if you know the answer to the riddle!!!
