Autumn stepped out into the cool night on Hogwarts grounds. The Winds thrust her Slytherin robes back and forth, and her hair whipping out from behind her. She walked quietly across the soft grass, towards the forest. The forbidden forest, to be exact. Everyone seemed to be scared of the place, and Autumn wanted to know why.
She stared up at the dark trees ahead of her. The faint sounds of cantering hooves echoed in her ears. She stepped forward, and something hissed. She looked down in front of her to see a Snake, moving swiftly across the grass around her feet. She carefully walked away from it, hoping for it not to notice her. She backed away slowly, until the snake was out of sight, and the moonlight was gone as well. She looked around her, to see the dark outlines of trees surrounding her. She was in the forest.
She smiled, nothing seemed scary about this place at all. Maybe it was all just a myth. But when she turned around, she saw a dark red stain splattered across the tree behind her. What was killed? What killed it? Was it even killed? She kept thinking, until a sound of foot steps came closer to her. Closer and closer and closer. Autumn stayed with her back turned to the creature. Until the footsteps stopped, right behind her. She could feel it's breath on her neck. Until she turned around, seeing a figure right behind her. it was dark, but the red hair made her notice who this figure was. "Ivan!" She whispered. "What are you doing here?"
