"Class dismissed." Professor sighed. I rubbed my back where Liza had stunned me and glanced at my friend Chloe. 

"That's a look of pure evil, and it shouldn't be directed at me!" She retorted. She was right. I had been enemies with Elizabeth Black ever since 1st year, and we were still going strong. 

I had got my acceptance letter and was in Diagon Alley, shopping for an owl, when Liza snatched it off me and payed for it, before I had the chance to say a word. She gave me a mean sneer on the way out, one which I receive almost every day. I had to settle for my pet bat, Maya, whilst she got everything she wanted. I'm not biased, but it seems to me that this only happens because she thinks she's a superior pure-blood. 

We wandered out the classroom, almost straight into her, and her groupies, making  mischief by levitating the hat of a girl - a muggle-born girl.

"Leave her alone, Elizabeth." I said sternly, making a grab for the hat. I missed.

"And what do you think you can do about it?" She jeered.  

"You're really going down that path?" I smiled.

"I'll give it a shot." She made the hat go higher until it was almost hanging off the small chandelier, as if mocking me. I got out my wand and shouted, "Expelliarmus!" 

The hat dropped immediately as Liza's wand flew into mine. I picked up the hat and returned it to it's owner, before throwing her wand back to Liza. She caught it swiftly, gave me a look that said 'That is the last of this' and walked away.

"Was that really necessary?" Chloe laughed. As they say, desperate times call for desperate measures.

The End
