Chapter 13.5 Occlumency, and Death Eater Break Out
First Chapter | (Previous: Dueling and Muddledness)
Several weeks passed without much fanfare. Harry avoided Occlumency lessons with Snape when he could, but was largely unsuccessful. One Monday evening, he managed to avoid him altogether—leading to a perfectly good Tuesday being spoiled by the sudden appearance of a large, black Crow on Harry’s way to Hagrid’s.
"Er.” Harry said.
“Indeed.” Snape snarled, looking straight at Hermione and Ron as he did so. “I trust the two of you can continue your dubious social call without Mister Potter. He has remedial potions to make up.&

Harry left Grubby Planks’ lesson on unicorns with his head filled with rumpled thoughts of long-haired Gryffindor Ladies (on red tapestry even) and silver unicorn foals.

Never between classes, but my absence would be remarked upon, and so soon after the Headmaster and my truce. I couldn’t risk skiving off.

Chapter 12.0: Harry Flees.
First Chapter | Previous: A Wise Wizard's Answer
Harry's feet slammed against the stone floors. His ears rang with the noise, somehow feeling amplified. It was raining, wasn't it? He could hear a sound like water rushing over stones, slapping glass window panes and dancing on the flags, and he could hear a shout of laughter. There were too many students in the castle--where could he go?
