#1619 by Lily Luna Potter
Lily was miserable. Her father was missing, her mother was being bombarded by the media, and to top it all off, she had to come back to school. All her classmates wanted to talk about was her father and the news surrounding her father, and how she must be feeling about her father...
She wanted to scream. She wanted to throw a rock into the lake. She wanted her father.
The first week back at school had been difficult. She had dragged herself to class, but otherwise stayed in her dorm, with the curtains drawn around her bed. She still couldn't figure out why she and her brothers had been sent back to school, especially since their father was clearly in trouble and they could be next.
The halls were mostly abandoned, with everyone going to the Great Hall for lunch, but she was dragging her feet, heading back to the Gryffindor Common Room. Lily just wanted to go home.
