Chapter 5


“Oh, hello, Tom.”

Tom sat across from Harry at their normal table outside the café. “How shall we hex each other today?”

Harry offered a confused look.

“What will we talk about, Harry.” Tom sighed. “I thought you had a brain.”

“I woke up late. I’m not quite awake yet.”

“Lazy, are we?”

“Yes, Tom. I’m horribly lazy. That’s why you haven’t killed me yet.”

“Oh, fine. Be that way.” Tom waved a waitress over and ordered a cup of strong black tea. “So, why were you so tired?”

“Nightmares.” Harry shrugged.

“Of what?” Tom leaned forward. “I haven’t been giving you any.”

“No, you haven’t.” Harry let out a sigh and rubbed at his eyes gently, ever mindful of his contacts. “I dream of people who have died: My parents. Cedric. Sirius. Cho and Marietta.”

Tom shook his head. “You blame yourself. You can’t let them go.”

Harry looked at Tom sharply. “What would you know about that?”

“Not much.” Tom admitted. “But I do know you.”

“Like that solves everything.”

“No, I don’t suppose it does.”


“What does your name mean? Voldemort, I mean.”

“You don’t know?”

“It’s not English. Hermione wasn’t all that interested in looking it up for me.”

“Perhaps you should have looked it up yourself.”

“Why? I can ask you.”

Tom smiled. “That’s true. Very well. It’s French.”

Harry blinked a few times in the silence. “French for what?”

“You can look it up.”


“Harry!” Tom mimicked.


“Go on. You can look it up yourself. Then you can tell me what it means and I’ll tell you if you’re right.”

“You’re too much like Hermione.”

Tom winced. “That hurt.”

Harry smirked. “Serves you right. Smart arse.”

“You need to think over the summer!”

“That’s why my teachers give me homework, Tom. So I think.”

“So, have you done any of your homework?”

“Nooo... My aunt and uncle always lock my books away.”


“Yup! They do it every summer. It’s their favourite hobby.”

“Good Merlin. And how about now?”

“I don’t have the assignments.”

Tom groaned. “You need an owl.”


“So you can owl your friend Hermione and ask her what the homework was.”


“Don’t give me that look.”

“Which one. I give you a lot of them.”

Tom glared at Harry. “That one that tells me I’m too smart for my own good.”

“You are.”

“Shut up.”


“You’re asking for it, Potter.”

Harry laughed.



“Not that.”

“Why not? Don’t you like Quidditch?”

“No. Not really.”

“Why not?”

“Messes up with my study habits.”


“It does!”

Harry just glared.

“Well, fine. It did back in school. I’ve never been fond of it.”

“No? What about now?”

“I did not suddenly become fond of Quidditch just because I no longer feel the need to study every book in the school’s library.”

“You did that?”


“Did you study Quidditch Through the Ages?”

“It was added to the library after my time, Harry.”

“Surely they had a Quidditch book in the Hogwarts library when you went to school there.”

“Yes, yes. There was. I read the damn thing once and put it back.”

“But you didn’t study it.”

“Is there a point to this?”

“Not really. I just wanted to know what you thought about Quidditch.”

“We are going in circles here.”

“I thought they were nice-looking circles, though.”

Tom groaned. “No. I don’t like Quidditch. Can we please move on?”

“What about the Chudley Cannons?”


Harry sniggered.


“What was your favourite part of Hogwarts?” Harry asked once Tom had stopped attempting to hex him, and the Muggles around them had been Obliviated of the incident.

“The library.”


Tom glared at the boy. “Fine. The Slytherin common room. It was dark and quiet.”

“And cold and just feels creepy!”

“When have you been in the Slytherin common room?!”



“Second year, if you must know.”


“Oh, Ron and I went in as Crabbe and Goyle to question Malfoy about the Chamber.”

“You managed Polyjuice in your second year?”

“Well, yeah. We had Hermione.”

“How’d you get the book? It’s in the Restricted Section!”


“Oh, Merlin.” Tom covered his eyes with a groan.

“Hermione fancied him.”

“I didn’t need to know that, Harry.”

“Nor did you want to, I bet.”

“Quite right.”


Tom let out another groan. “I’ve created a monster.”

“That you have!”

“I should hex you again.”

“Well, you missed last time, if you’ll recall. Hit that table over there.” Harry smirked. “The poor Muggles.”

“Shut up, Potter.”

“And then you’d have to do another mass Obliviate!”


“Which I wasn’t aware you were so good at…”


“Yes, Tom?”

“Shut up.”


“See that building over there?”

“Of course I do. I’m not blind.”

“Take out your contacts and say that again.”

“Ha-ha,” Harry said dryly. “Now, what about the building?”

“It’s a library. Go find out what Voldemort means.”

“Leaving already?”

“Job, Harry. Surely you remember?”

“I think I do.”

“Go. And find a way to get in contact with that Muggle friend of yours. Get your homework.”

“Why do you care?”

“I might help you. Perhaps.”

“What would Snape say if he found out you were helping me with my homework?”

“He’d go tell Dumbledore I’ve been corrupting you.”

“He’d be right. You got me to buy a book on the Dark Arts.”

“Go. Now.”

“Tired of me?”



“I will hex you.”

“Oh, go Crucio Wormtail for me a few times.”

“Gladly. He screams louder than you.”

“Thank you. I think.”

“Of course.”

“Tomorrow, then.” Harry nodded before wandering off to the library.

Despite being the ultimate evil, Tom wasn’t such a bad guy.

Most of the time.


A/N:W00t!! *pauses* I don’t know what to say for once…
Uhm…. I have a headache and my tea is cold. Yeah!
