I'll need to speak with Severus very soon, because if I don't, he may end up doing something we'll both regret. I just hope I can talk to him privately before it's too late. Being part of a family that is practically as involved with the dark arts as something can get does not always make for an easy life, though getting into Slytherin did help on that account. I probably would have been disowned had I gotten into another house such as Gryffindor. My father has made it quite clear that anyone from that house is not to be trusted, and thankfully, I believe he thinks my relationship with Ashalea and Selene is over.
I just seriously hope that my father will allow me to go to Laren's home for the Christmas Vacation. After all, I can learn more about other dark arts while I'm there, which may help to convince him. The joys of already working for one's father. I'm to send weekly reports to him on Severus' behaviour, and I believe that Lucius is to do the same, so I won't be able to get away with twisting the truth.
I'm quite surprised that I haven't gotten a howler yet, though, seeing as I still have 10 days of detention left with Professor Flitwick. Something about conjuring up a dementor was just too much of a surprise for him, even though he DID tell me to surprise him. *shrugs* He wasn't overly impressed with my Patronus, for that matter, either. Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that the Dementor I conjured chose him as a target. Oh well, it's not like he was kissed or anything. Scared out of his wits, yes, but actually harmed? I think not. *giggles slightly*
*glances up* I better take off. I think I hear someone, and it wouldn't be good if I was caught down here by Lucius at this hour, writing in the journal...
