*Hermione's POV*

The ride back to Hogwarts was torture! This Slytherins girl followed me back to my compartment. Parkinson, I think her name was. I had just gotten back from changing into my robes when ol' pug face started taunting me. I won't go into great detail, but she covered pretty much everything. She called me something, mudblood, I think. I'll look it up later. She insulted Ron, calling him some nasty words and making fun of his lack of gold. Made fun of Harry, calling him an attention hungry orphan. Called Alexia a know-it-all, a git that wants power, and some other words that I'd rather not repeat. Several times I had considered punching her in her ugly flat face. After she called Alexia the W word, I snapped. "I REALLY DON'T DO CARE WHAT YOU SAY! SO WHY DON'T YOU MOVE YOUR UGLY SELF ALONG AND INSULT SOMEONE WHO DOES!" I had shouted as I pulled my wand and shoved it in her face. She took one look at the anger on my face and my wand before she stalked out of the compartment. Other than that, the ride was pretty uneventful. Once the train halted, I've never run so fast. I jumped into the carriages, which smelled of straw and dirt. Once I shut the door the carriage began to move. Pulled by an invisibile hoarse, I think.

I opened the blue carriage door and rushed off to Hogwarts. I opened the big oak doors and looked around. Christmas decorations were still up! There were loads of mistletoe.......I wonder if I could catch Ron under some? Woah! Back up, Mione! I'll bet that Alexia has caught Harry under some already. Speaking of Alexia, where is she? My questione was answered by a loud voice a few hallways down. "Poppy, I'm fine! I have to get Harry and Ron! Mione's back!!!! MIONE IS BACK!!!!" Alex shouted.

"Hermione's back?" I heard Ron question. "Harry, come on! Hermione's back!" I heard loud footsteps coming my way. My best friends! Ron got to me first. "Good to see you back, Hermione," he said awkwardly. Alexia was being tailed by Madame Pomfrey and Harry was next to Alexia. Suddenly, their feet were melded to the ground. Alexia was about to trip, but Harry helped her stand. They both looked up in synch, almost as if it's happened before. They looked back to each other, blushing furiously. I looked up above them. Mistletoe. "That's not mistletoe. They've got Mistlesnog," Ron whispered to me with a smirk.

"How can you tell?" I aksed him in a whisper as Alexia stared into Harrry's eyes. I couldn't tell if she was awkward, or enjoying the moment. Probably both.

"Mistlesnog has red berries instead of white," Ron answered. "Oi! Hurry up!" Ron told the pair. I slapped his arm. Harry made the first move. He put his hands on her waist and smashed his lips into hers. I felt awkward about intruding, but didn't dare move. Alexia wrapped her hands around his neck and kissed back. I am SO teasing her about this later! They broke apart after a couple seconds and looked up. The plant was gone, and so was the spell keeping them there. Alexia crushed me in a hug.

"Oh! I missed you! I've had to deal with these dunderheads for two weeks. You have no idea how many times I have dodged that ridiculous plant! Second years are relentless," She ranted as I hugged her back. I chuckled.

"I missed you too! Just so you know, I am definitely asking about that snog session later," I smirked as we pulled back. Her hair went embarrassment pink and her cheeks flushed. She opened her mouth to say something, but was cut off by Harry. He gave a grunt of agony and clutched his ankle. Scabbers bit him! Ron's rat scurried to Alexia, squeaking madly. Alexia seemed to understand, though. She just kept nodding to the tiny creature, an annoyed look on her face.

"What did he say?" Harry asked, still rubbing his ankle. Alexia straightened up, and looked at him.

"Somethin' about safety with boys. Translation was a bit fuzzy, but that rat needs to lay off!" She answered. She can talk to animals?! Awesome! Harry turned to me with a smile.

"Great to see you back, Hermione! We've got loads to tell you," Harry hugged me. I swear he smirked at Alexia! She's having a sleepover with me in Gryffindor Tower, and she's going to tell me everything!
