PART 3: EVERYTHING IS SO STRANGE!
"His blood tastes awful!"
"That's what you'll get from an old muggle, of course,"
"I heard virgin's tastes wondrous…"
"Owh but they are hard to come by, isn't so?"
Draco makes a distasteful face when he heard the conversation between the two Slytherin girls as he passes them by at the train station. Why are talking about the taste of blood? He thought. As he is about to board the Hogwarts Express, he saw Harry Potter who walks only shortly behind him is also somehow making the same face as he is. Harry must've heard the conversation too. He didn't watch where he was going that he accidentally bump into Draco and that made them both fall down to the ground with a loud thud. "Blimey… Sorry," Harry said without realizing that it was actually Draco that he had bumped into.
"Get off me, Potter!" Draco yelled. Harry then only realized that he is on top of Draco Malfoy, his arch enemy. He quickly gets up. Draco also gets up to stand, fixing his clothes. "You're going to be sorry for this!" Draco threatened him.
"Oh. No, Malfoy. I take that back. No. I wasn't sorry," Harry talked back rudely to Draco.
Draco stood up closer to Harry. Their nose almost met now as they look into each other's eyes with hatred. "Don't make me use some deadly spells on you, Potter," Draco threatened him again.
"Try me, Malfoy," Harry dared him.
Draco and so is Harry searched their back pocket without facing away from each other for their wand but then panic grows on both of their faces as they realized that there's no wand there. There's no wand where it should be. "Wait. Where's my wand?" Draco said as he now looks away and searches frantically all around his body for his wand.
Harry also searches for his wand but he did so not quite as frantically as Draco. "I can't find mine too," Harry then said. They both look at each other in confusion and full of dread now.
"Are the both of you playing wizards now?" Hermione asked them cynically. Ron is standing next to her, looking at them quizzically. How long had she been there? Then only they realized that everybody is watching them like they had gone crazy.
"This year we will have 'Hunting Class'. Wouldn't that be exciting?" Hermione asked. She seems real excited. They are now in the train on the way to Hogwarts.
Harry could not seem to grasp the situation just yet. "'Hunting Class'? What is that even for?" Harry asked.
Hermione looks at him like Harry had asked such a silly question. To his amazement, Ron is also looking at him in the same way. "What for?! You can't be this stupid, Harry? Are you okay? It's for us to hunt for our own prey, of course," Hermione answered quite ragingly at Harry.
"And all this while, I thought I was the dumb one," Ron commented. That made both Hermione and Ron laughs out loud. Harry didn't find it amusing though. He can't help but to think that everything is so strange!
