I sat next to the river. It was nice to have some peace and quiet. I had moved w hile ago when the Telmarines started getting violent. Too many of my loved ones had been killed or injured, and I didn’t know how long it was going to last, so i packed my bags and left. The beavers had been more than happy to take me in, even if it was a bit small, and i was a bit big. The house was located in the woods - a good place to live, as King Miras and his men wouldn’t come into the woods. It was where the savages lived apparently. The house was also next to the river, which i need, being a Naiad and all. I got up from the river bank, and ran back to the house, yelling, ‘I’m going for a walk!’ before shutting the door quietly, and continuing on through the forest
Saffron Ramirez’s POV
I walked out of my last lesson of the day, Potions, with absolutely no more knowledge than I’d had before I went into that lesson. Professor Snape had been talking about liquid death or something like that, but I was totally clueless. To be honest, though, Potions was my only weak point. Being in Ravenclaw, I had a pretty strong grasp at most other subjects – particularly Transfiguration. I often liked to mess around with the Hufflepuffs by turning the goblets on their tables into badgers. It scared them every time, and they were still clueless as to who was doing it. Obviously, they didn’t mind it so much, because the badger is the animal of the Hufflepuff crest, but I hated the things. They were just so vulgar. I looked down at the pile of books I was carrying, on the top was a blank scroll of paper, just reminding me of the 5000 word essay I had to do for Professor Snape on the advantages and disadvantages of using Polyjuice Potion. Rolling my eyes, I carried on down the corridor and into the Ravenclaw common room. It was going to be a long night.
I didn’t realise how far I’d walked until I came out into the town. It had become more lively since Caspian had become King, and I was seriously considering moving back. ‘Good morning, m’lady!’ Naina called from her doorway. ‘Morning!’ I smiled, waving. ‘M’lady’. Having King Caspian for a boyfriend meant i got quite a few new titles ‘Lady Lilliandu’, ‘M’lady’, ‘Ma’am.’ ‘Where are you off to?’ Naina smiled. ‘The castle. I have a few things I need to see to.’ I said, and carried on walking. Naina nodded, and went back inside, allowing me to continue my journey. The gate was already up, so I could get into the castle without having to speak to anyone or ask anyone to help me. The courtyard was busier than usual, and as I entered the castle, I frowned. Servants were running around, carrying piles of clothes, and barrels of food. ‘Drinian!’ I cried, pushing my way towards him. ‘What’s going on? Where’s Caspian?’ He smiled. ‘We’re preparing the Dawn Treader for yet another voyage, and his majesty is already on the ship.’ ‘Thank you.’ I said, pushing my way towards the back of the castle and into the bay, starting ym search for Caspian.
It was the middle of the night and I still couldn’t sleep. My sleeping patterns had been majorly messed up lately. Personally, I blamed the Weasley twins. Every day they would tell me some extravagant prank that they were going to play on whichever oblivious teacher they decided on this time, and every night I would get excited about it and lose sleep. Well I guess that’s what you get when you choose Fred Weasley as your boyfriend. Can you really blame me? Well, whatever; so basically, I was in my dorm completely unable to sleep, so I decided to go for a walk. George had shown me the easiest way to climb down the walls of the castle, and I was eternally grateful to him for doing that for me. I silently climbed out of bed, got changed and slid out of the window. I got about halfway down the castle wall when I realised that I actually had no idea where I was going, so I just kind of hung there for a while. I thought about all the places I could go and then remembered something the twins had shown me in my third year. I grinned to myself and made my way over.
