Otis sat on top of the gates while the warm spring air made ripples against the lake far below him. He was picking up pebbles from the stone covered ground and t throwing them into the lake below. Plip..Plop they sounded as the splashed in the water. It was a nice feeling that Otis had. All his homework was done and he didn't have to go to Snape's class for another 72 hours. He practically had no worries.

"Yeah right!", Otis said competively. It was going to be a pretty biased competition in Otis's mind. For god sake's he's a first year! Otis thought to himself. "Ladies first!", he said sarcastically as he watched and waited for Augustus' throw.

Plip..Plop Otis was laughing heartily chucking rocks into the cool lake below him. Thunk there was suddenly a pain in Otis's skull. A rock had hit him. Suddenly his eyes rolled over and he began to slip of the bridge slowly as his robes followed him down. Splash The water engulfed Otis's body. He was in the lake now.

Darius, on his way to the Ravenclaw Quidditch practices, was floating lazily over the ground, the tips of his feet skimming the grass, and his bag's handle slung over the end of his broom, dragging over the fields. Darius hated his slow broom, but he loved the feel of the air slipping over him as he drifted. Darius caught sight of a distant group of people throwing rocks competitivly into the lake, and then one figure drop off of the bridge, completely out of Darius' view. Darius continued to move towards the Quidditch pitch, but kept his eyes on the lake. A couple of moments went by as he watched, and finally Darius catiously tipped his broom in their direction, and tried to get a better look. The student had not surfaced, and too much time had elapsed for the person to still be submerged. Darius' eyebrows knit together, and removing his bag from the end of his broom and flinging it over his shoulder, Darius picked up speed and made way to the bridge where the students were gathered.

Otis found himself sopping wet and floating in the Hogwarts lake when he came to. He looked up to the bridge where all the students were looking down at him. He began to walk up onto the large island that was Hogwarts when a large tentacle came from the lake. Otis's eyes widened as it moved towards him. "HELP ME!", he yelled.

"Wow!" Darius yelped innapropriatly, commenting on the huge arm of the squid. "Hold on to the roots of the shore while I try and get it with a stinging hex!" Darius spun his broom around and headed towards the shore, and while handling the broom with one hand, shot hexes at the tentacle with the other.

Otis watched as the scrawny ravenclaw came to his rescue. It was true that Otis couldn't have fought off the squid himself and he needed help. He was completely safe where he was standing on the rocks, except for the fact that it was impossible for him to get back to Hogwarts. The huge rock mound was stationed directly in front of him and behind him was the cold lake. It only took Otis a couple of seconds before he conjured up an idea in his head. "Accio Nimbus 2000!" He yelled with his wand out in front of him. Within minutes a broom was hovering beside him, but there was something wrong with it. Then, he remembered the Quidditch Practice again, Derek hitting the bludger and splitting his broom's nose. He needed the broom and even though he only had half of his broom right now he was going to ride it. He sung his leg over the broomstick and kicked off the ground. It was rather hard to get into the air because he had no place to put his hands, no where to hold on to. Of course, he had ridden no-handed most of the time when he was holding the quaffle, this time the broom lacked manuevearbility. He swirved aimlessly left and right through the air until he spotted Darius and the giant squid. "Hey Darius you need any...OUCH!", suddenly Otis found himself on top of the squid his useless broomstick floating away in the water. The squid was moving about in an uncontrollable fashion. Otis hung grappeled himself onto the Squids rather soft skin and held on for his life as his legs flailed about in the air.

"Alright, I'm going to stop shooting stinging hexes at it now!" Darius yelled, for good measure. "stupify, STUPIFY!" he shouted, and watched as the red beam shot towards the the giant squid. "Otis, what should I do? Do you want my broom? It's really bad, I enchanted it in my first year!"
