The Enchanted Chalise

"Have you drank from the chalise yet?" Arriana inquired as she plucked the beautiful gold cup from his hand.
"No. According to the legend one must be worthy of a sip from this chalise or death comes on swift wings. I'm not quite ready to go just yet," Artis replied as he stood to put on his robe. " We really must be getting back to Hogswart before they notice that we are gone. Do you still have some floo powder?"
"Yes, are you sure it's still safe for us? What are you going to do with the chalise?"
"I'm going to hide in the forbidden forest when we get back to school," Artis told her as he took some of her floo powder. Seeing the worry on her face he assured her that it was for the best. No one would think to look there.

New Knitting Bag

I've decided that I need a new knitting bag. My current one has seen its better days and is starting to tear in the front. It's really not the bags fault though. I'm hard on bags. I like to carry everything that I think I might need. So I've been looking at the Namaste Laguna Bag and the Jordana Paige bags. I'm leaning really hard towards the Laguna Bag. It looks nice and roomy but I'm wondering if it can hold up over time. Like I said I'm hard on bags.

News Around HSKS7
- a brief highlight of what your classmates are up to.

Sian a bright first year in Hufflepuff has thrown herself into her homework with such relish that all of her teachers love her. Many are confused why the young lady seems to have been targeted by dementors so lately. The ministry is investigating the matter as we speak.

Prendolyn of Griffindor was called out of town to attend a state Quiddich championship with her family. Her team came close to winning but lost when the seeker of the other team caught the snitch with his mouth. It was an exciting match to say the least.

Emma of Slytherin has been busying teaching the youngest member of her family how to knit the muggle way due to underage wizard restrictions. She finds it very relaxing to do it that way also, but don't tell her that I told you.

From the frying pan to the fire!

Arriana having planned for just this kind of betrayal took a step back right onto the portkey that she had made out of an ordinary garden hoe. Landing on the street behind Diagon alley, Arriana carefully made her way to her hotel room. Once upstairs she remove her cloak, the extra padding she had added to her clothes and her wig.
"That was a close one," she told her brother as he removed the cuffs.
"I'm glad that you took a fake with you. I couldn't imagine what would have happened if this had fallen in the wrong hands," he told her as he held up the enchanted chalise that gave the drinker eternal life according to legend.
The ministry had been after it for months since Voldermont had taken over.

New Homework

The shadows lengthened as the lonely witch waited in the graveyard to make her connection. Where was he? He couldn't have forgotten about her, could he? The shiver of cold slithered down her back and her heart jumped to her throat as she spotted someone in the distance. Was that him? She had never met him before, but hoped it was her contact. If she were to be caught by Ministry officials with this in her possession, it could mean real trouble for her whole family! Impatient and fearful, the stranger approached too fast, but too slow all at once. "How did I get myself into this?" she muttered under her breath. The faces flitted though her mind of those that coerced her into submission. Assuring her that this was the only way for all of them to be safe.
"Do you have it?" asked the stranger in a gravelly voice that didn't match his youthful face. Nodding she reached into the inner pocket of her cloak, extracted a small black velvet pouch and dropped it into his out stretched hand. As soon as the bag touch his hand magically cuffs appeared on her wrists. "Miss Stylos you are under arrest and will be sent to Azkaban to await trial." Stay turned more to come.
