"Hi, mum" I said, walking into the Transfiguration classroom. No one else was here yet, so it was okay to call her that. My mum became the Transfiguration professor when McGonagall moved up to Headmaster.
"Hello sweetie" mum smiled at me, "How's your day been going?"
"Wonderful, thanks" I replied. I took my usual seat at the front of the class. Since no one else had arrived, I decided to ask mum the question that has been on my mind all day.
"Mum..." I started.
It was time for Potions class with Professor Shife and I was becoming suspicious. The my mum had answered my question. It was like she was hiding something. And I feel like I'm constantly being watched, but when I look there's no one there. Something's wrong and I'm going to find out what. I clunked my books down on my desk a little harder than I had meant to.
"Careful, Miss Lancaster." Professor Shife, the only teacher in Hogwarts who doesn't exactly like me, said.
