Lily crept down the girls' dormitories stairs. Everyone was in bed so she wasn't worried about running into anyone in the common room so late at night. She had been making up all of her homework but since everyone was asleep in the dormitory there wasn't any light to see her work. She took her books and walked quietly over to the couch in front of the fire that was still barely burning. She suddenly turned around and stood up straighter as if being caught in the act of something. She looked over at the person who said her name, not realizing they had been in the common room as well, and said quietly, "Oh, hey" and tried to force a smile.
