No matter how many times she reminded herself that she had no choice, Karys still couldn't get the image of students writhing in pain under the cruciatus curse that the Carrows were making them use as punishment if they so much as stumbled in the hallway. Things were starting to get worse since the beginning of the school year and despite her pureblood status, Karys was still ending up in detentions. Most of them were for not giving the right answer in class or for being a Gryffindor and the rest were for standing up for her sister, Kara, or another helpless student.

Karys now found herself clambering up the stairs to the Gryffindor Tower, trying to make her way as quietly as possible so as not to wake up the portraits. It was now late at night and she knew that if she wasn't in the Common Room soon, she'd end up the way she came - in detention. She felt exhausted and all she ever wished now was to have some normal lessons and detentions that didn't include torture. Suddenly feeling the tiredness of the countless sleepless nights wash over her, Karys slumped down on the top step and for a brief moment, let the silence comfort her.
