Chapter One - Petrified

Rose woke with a start. She could see, in the darkness, her cousin Albus was awake too in the next bed. He turned his head to look at her, his bright green eyes shining in the darkness.

"Why are you still awake?" she asked him softly.

"I've just been thinking." he replied, obviously careful not to wake Madam Pomfrey, who had been looking for her Skele-Gro to heal Sora Drakon, a half-blood that had been attacked by the mysterious monster.

"What about?" she asked him.

"Nothing much - just getting out of this place and trying to find the monster for myself." he grinned at her halfheartedly. Even in times of peril he could find a way to make her smile.

"You're surely not serious?" she asked, knowing that her cousin could be a bit dumb in deciding what was right and what was wrong after being hijacked by Voldemort in their 3rd year.

"Why shouldn't I be?" he shrugged.

"You wouldn't, Albus!"

"Look, Rose, everyone told me last year that Voldemort would never come back, or ever even dare to hurt me after my father defeated him for the last time 29 years ago. Now I don't even know what is a lie or what is the truth. To make the matter worse, you, my best friend, have just been taken out of a coma caused by that horrible - creature." he stopped and shuddered. "Now my own sisters' been Petrified, and for all I know, all of my friends could drop dead any day now." he slid out of bed, his ghostly shadow falling into the column of light that still came from the nurse's office. "I have to go."

Rose nodded, her blue eyes glistening with tears, as she lifted her covers and slid of of bed with him.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It's entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more - I do need more.

Wendi Getz: Very powerful and moving story! A great read, especially for young women. I loved how it pulled the reader down the slippery slope that is domestic abuse and gave us an inside view of how easy it is to end up in that situation.

nehmeyasmin: It was the most heart warming but heart breaking story ever and I want the next part right away. It kept me hooked until the end even though there were a couple mistakes it was truly amazing. I think this book could go far if it wanted to
