Addy took a breath and held the small note in her hand. An owl had found her at breakfast that morning as she conversed with Brigh, Cheese, Dicky and Eggy and she had been mid sentence when she recognized the handwriting and who it was signed by and her eyes had gone wide and her face slightly pale. It wasn’t like her to be called up on by a Professor, had she done something wrong? Was there an issue with her last essay she hadn’t submitted? Was it so horrible that Professor Zabini wanted to tell her in person that she had failed it? After the Professor's first lesson that morning, she had been asked to stop by the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom. Addy knew there wasn’t a lesson directly afterwards so perhaps it was the best time. Her friends had noted the pause and her expression but were all supportive and certain that she wasn’t in trouble. It was not Addy’s M.O. to be requested by a Professor so randomly.
Addy folded the note once more, refolding along the neat creases she had created earlier as she walked from her Potions class in the dungeons to the first floor and her Head of House’s classroom. She supposed that’s what also concerned her, maybe a Prefect had finally told Professor that she had been arriving late from Quidditch practice to the Common Room the previous term, she had cited that she had been practicing extra. The team had been performing pretty average, not to her own personal expectation. Still, she could only really worry about her own contributions and practice and try to push out the obvious distractions. She waited as the classroom emptied of its young students, she recognized a handful of fifth years from her own house—their faces pale likely from the persistent reminder of their OWLS at the end of the Spring. She remembered that herself as it was now replaced with persistent reminders of her NEWTs.
Walking in as the last Gryffindor student left the classroom Professor Zabini’s back was turned to her and she approached but still kept her distance. Addy cleared her throat, standing up straight and confidently. ”I received your note Professor, you wanted to see me?”
