The large doors opened and a sleepy Neville stumbled into the room with a limber wizard behind him, prodding him in the back to keep him moving. The young wizard pulled his cloak up tighter around his neck, feeling cold with just his nightclothes underneath.
"What's going on? Why am I here?" Neville looked around with sleepy eyes.
"Do you know anything about that boy," The wizard with the beard pointed to Crabbe, "And him being woken up by a supposed vampire drinking from him?"
"No," Neville's voice trembled slightly from the pressure of all the wizards in the room watching him, "I don't like blood, why would I drink from him? I don't even like to see it." He looked at Crabbe, frowning
"Lies!" With a new burst of energy Darren jumped up, stalking over to Neville and ripped off his cloak. The front of his pajamas was stained with blood. Gasps were heard from all around the room. Neville looked around in fright and fell to his knees, feeling tears coming to his eyes.
"I—I don't know what

Darren's blurry vision cleared and he found himself looking up into the face of Madam Pomfrey, Ron and Hermione were standing behind her, trying to see him.
"I told you that would wake him up." She smiled and patted Darren gently on the arm.
"I'd take it easy if I were you" She said before walking away.
"Ron! Hermione! Where's Harry?" Darren sat up and looked around.
"Don't worry, he's over there—sleeping, so keep it down." Hermione said quietly, pointing to another bed where Harry was fast asleep. Darren let out a sigh of relief.
"What happened? The last thing I remember is trying to convince Dumbledore we needed to kill Murlough." Darren looked back and forth between the two. They frowned and looked at each other.
"He escaped, Darren, after knocking you out and dumbfounding Dumbledore and Snape" Hermione explained.
"No, I don't know how he did it, he just did." She sighed and sat down on the bed next to him, then looked over at Harry, frowning.
"What's wrong with him?" Darren

"Okay... Well I hope it all makes sense... It may not..." Hermione started
"Try me." Darren crossed his arms over his chest, taking in a deep breath, waiting for her explanation. Taking a moment Hermione gathered herself and looked around the room, as if getting ready to tell a fantastic and adventurous tale.
"I'll start from the beginning. When I first saw you there in the Leaky Cauldron I knew there was something odd about you. You were different, not a wizard but not exactly a normal muggle." She looked thoughtful for a moment then continued. "You see, Darren, there's trouble around the school. More than you guessed. I figured it out when you told us you were a vampire, and about the vampaneze. The vampaneze have been trying to get us as allies for years. That's one thing Professor Murlough didn't tell you. He knew if he told you then you wouldn't leave for a minute, so he had to come up with something else: a plan of revenge.
"Murlough figured out that if he could get you there and

The carriage ride was silent, aside from the horses making noise. During the first leg of the trip the men had tried to ask Darren questions, but he refused and stayed silent during the entire time, keeping his arms crossed a steady icy glare on the wizards he was sitting across from. There was one wizard on either side of him and three sitting across from them, so hopefully Darren wouldn't escape. Slowly the horses trudged on until they reached the main headquarters for the ministry. The two wizards on either side of Darren grabbed his arms and dragged him from the carriage. Immediately he felt at least two more hands latch onto him and could feel several eyes boring holes into his head with ready wands pointed at his back. He didn't get a good glimpse of the building he was taken in so he really had no idea of where he was.

Darren walked briskly up towards the Gryffindor tower; Hermione, Draco and Goyle were hot on his tail. He knew what was going on and was going to put an end to it right now. He quickly entered the common room and ran quickly to the dormitories where he knew Neville Longbottom would be. When he got there the door was locked. Darren grumbled under his breath and threw himself at the door. It wouldn't budge. He glared at it and did it again, until a sleepy roommate opened the door, looking drearily at Darren.
"What are you doing?"
"Why was the door locked?" Darren demanded and pushed him aside, scouring the room with a glare. "Where's Neville?"
"I don't know—I haven't seen him."
"If you do see him, tell him I'm looking for him." Darren whipped around, and slammed the door shut behind him. He left the common room quickly, just barely missing Hermione as she came in.
"Darren, hold on a minute, what are you doing? You've been running around the entire school, and letting us follow

"Where is he?" Darren roared and started towards Murlough in his rage. Cho was quick to react, pointing her wand at Darren and began a string of spells to keep Darren away from Murlough. Darren made more progress backwards than he did forwards, who sat back and laughed as boils and burns appeared on Darren's skin. Darren grumbled in irritation. He wasn't in pain, just annoyed for now. Quickly he moved behind a desk, trying to hide from Cho's spells, but the desk was engulfed in flames in a moment then burned to the ground.
"Harry! Do something!" Darren yelled. Harry gave him a pleading look before freeing himself from his binding and knocked Cho's wand out of her hand. With that moment of freedom before Cho could grab her wand again Darren made a mad dash for Murlough and knocked him back over the coffin and scrambled over it quickly himself, landing on top of Murlough. Murlough was strong though and pushed him off. He must've had some type of vampiric blood in him. He kicked the half

"It's a snake!" Harry shouted quickly. Darren looked confused; he had no idea how Harry could know that since he couldn't see it. People cleared though and moved out of the snake's way as it slithered forward. Soon it was in full view, it's dark green body slithered toward the stage, where a hissing sound was coming from. All attention was turned to the young man standing on the stage. He was wearing only a pair of shorts. His body was covered in scales that ranged from blue to yellow with plenty of shades of green in between. His eyes were strangely shaped and looked very similar to that of a snake's eyes, but other than that he looked normal.
He slid off the edge of the stage and walked towards the snake, hissing to it as he moved. The snaked slithered towards him and started climbing up him and wrapping itself around him. The boy held up his hands when the snake was wrapped totally around him then grinned and hissed to the snake, which then slithered off him and onto the floor. He h
