Summary: It was thundering like mad now. The rain was pounding down in all directions. Sammie coughed and spluttered as she stumbled out of the lake, gasping for air and dragging Lucy’s unconscious body with her. “Aunt Beatrice!” Sammie shouted over the wind and rain. “Aunt - Aunt Beatrice!” Sammie laid Lucy down in the overgrown grass, wincing at the scarlet blood that was dripping from the wound in Lucy’s side and neck from where the mermaids had pierced her. “Aunt Beatrice! Where are you? AUNT BEATRICE!” Panting and heaving, Sammie tried to support her bleeding friend, whose blood has now soaking Sammie’s robes even further. She glanced around, scouring the grounds despairingly. No one came. She screeched in desperation, pulling Lucy off the ground and searching for any sign that her aunt was here. “Aunt Beatrice...?” she whispered hopelessly, crying now. No one came. “Help me...somebody...please,” She began sobbing uncontrollably now. Her tears mingled with rain and blood, seeming as though they poured right through her skin and were drowning her. She felt as though someone was lifting her by the back of her robes. Is this how it feels when you’re lifted to heaven? Am I dying? She didn’t know that, and she didn’t know whose arms were wrapped around her. All she knew was that they had failed, Aunt Beatrice had betrayed them, Verudka was now dead, and Lucy was surely dying.
Slytherins and Gryffindors hate each other. Malfoys and Potters hate each other. But can one fateful trip to Diagon Alley, a potion, and tragedy change all of that for Sammie and Lucy?

This chapter was very sweet. I liked how you had the twins' appearence different. It makes it more interesting. Harry's personality was definitely right on target. I could see him freaking out that way! Good Job. Great first chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks Violet! It took a lot of work to get Harry\'s character right, so I\'m grateful for the compliment!
Oh, Cliffhanger! Well, i think it's really interesting how the twins act toward each other. i actually wonder what houses they will end up in. I'm starting to get the impression that they wont be in the same one. The ending is definitely a surprise. I wonder who on earth she ended up running into. Well, I guess I will have to see, won't I? I hope you update soon!
Author's Response: I\'m trying! As soon as my beta replies (any one of them... *sigh*) I should be posting quickly!

Very interesting! I had found this story when I saw your banner. (which is very nice, ana lured me in.) I have never read a Draco/Hermione story, so it's interesting. I'm very intrigued. Your writing is nice and you hit Draco's personality perfectly.

This is getting very suspensful. I'm curious to see what Malfoy is getting into! And i feel a little bad for him. His father...ugh. Well, this was a nice chapter. I can't wait for the romance to come!
Author's Response: Thanks! I am currently working on Chapter 5 which seems to be taking on a mind of it\'s own. ~Lacey
Summary: When Eden has to tell the love of her life about a large part of life - one that most would be scared witless by - he will have to understand, won't he? After all, isn't his love unconditional?
This is very, very sad, but it left me wanting more. I love your writing style. It's beautiful. And i think it gave the tone justice.
