The garden was quiet and dark compared to the light and music inside the castle. Quiet but not silent. Dark but not deserted.

Anya paused, listening. There it was, a betraying rustle. Placing her feet carefully, she stalked her prey. They were behind that bush. She aimed carefully, and pulled the trigger.

Two figures jumped apart and stifled shrieks as they were doused in water.

"Mister Thomas," Anya said, lowering her super-soaker. "Twenty points from Gryffindor."

Dean Thomas spluttered a protest.

"Oh, and one point from Hufflepuff, Miss Abbott."

Anya hadn't realized how much she would love being a teacher.
