Well that was bloody brilliant! I should never have doubted handing over my position as Beater to Trengrove. She and Blaire absolutely dominated the field with their bats. The match was long, and bloody, but in the end we won, 160 to Nothing. I even managed to score a goal, which quite surprised me as I've never had much confidence in myself as a Chaser. MacGlory, of course played as well as he always does. He spotted the snitch early and kept after it until it was in his hand. Scrounge was right, I will do whatever it takes to win. One down, two to go.

Dear Mum,


The term ended well. Slytherin won the House Cup, due in no small part to the essays that Scrounge and I wrote. And, I managed to get myself elected Captain of the Quidditch team. Not a bad way to end the year at all.


I'll working for professor Carrigan again this summer, but I' going to spend some time in London first. I finally saw Georgiana. I won't write about that now, but need to talk to you about it soon, in person.


I ate a scoop of every flavor that Glacier Mountain has to offer. Having tried them all, I still like vanilla best. But I think I've had enough ice-cream to last me a while.


Hope to see you soon.


Love always,


Romuald

The Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) is a small annual flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to Europe. It is an annual plant growing to 40-90 cm tall, with gray-green branched stems. The leaves are lanceolate, 1-4 cm long. The flowers are most commonly an intense blue colour, produced in flower-heads (capitula) 1.5-3 cm diameter, with a ring of a few large, spreading ray florets surrounding a central cluster of disc florets.

The primary difficulty that sets handling dragons apart from other dangerous magical creatures is the very high potential for severe burn injuries. Dragon burns are caused by exposure to a dragon’s breath, and may be classified according to the chemical basis of the dragon’s ‘fire’. Along with the usual flames, dragon burns may also be caused by corrosive substances from the digestive tract or scale friction. Dragon scalds are caused by wet heat - hot liquids and vapours such as saliva or steam. When burns have been treated, the casualty should also be thoroughly examined for claw and bite damage as well.

Dear Mum,


I'm sure by now the school staff has let you know that I've lost a few points for Slytherin house. Please don't be overly concerned. I have gained more points than I've lost, and my grades are better this term than last, so far. I'm sure you can tell from the enclosed picture that I've grown quite a bit since I saw you last. That's to be expected, of course. I'm not as tall as Dad, but I think it won't be much longer.


Georgiana and I are as close as ever. We've been making plans for the future along with our mutual friend, Alfie Scrounge. I don't want to say too much about it in case this owl is intercepted, but I think you'd be impressed. I'd like to tell you all about it in person this summer.


Both the Daltons and professor Carrigan have extended an open invitation for you to visit, or I could come home if you think that would be alright. I miss you terribly and we have so much to talk about. I know that you would love the Daltons. They are among the kindest people I have ever met and they've taken very good care of me other the past year or so. So well, in fact, that I can afford to send a bit of money home. I hope it will help.


I think about you everyday, and try to do my best to make you proud of me. As always, I love you dearly and hope to see you soon.
