Honestly, this last year at Hogwarts was turning into one thing after another, she was still awaiting a reply from her parents, which was going to be more than likely something she doesn't want to hear. They couldn't forcibly make her marry Nikolas could they? That couldn't be legal, she was her own person, she was an adult, she didn't need to take this from anyone. What her parents could do, however, is threaten to write her out of the inheritance. As the eldest, she was bound to get a pretty penny, they could take all that away, and leave her penniless and shamed. It was that single thought that made her believe that she really had no choice but to go through with this. Luckily, she was able to escape from her thoughts during class, focus on whatever repetitive garbage the teachers decided to throw at her. It was during free periods that her mind would go rampant, and the only way to calm it would be to distract herself.
The distraction today was a walk by the lake, it seemed like a good idea, autumn was rapidly descending upon the grounds, leaving a slight chill to the air. A slight breeze came off the water, leaving ripples in its wake, and bringing cool fresh air. Leaving her robes behind, Daphne pulled on a black sweater vest over her white button up shirt. Slytherin crest sewn proudly upon the material. Dark blue eyes stared out over the water watching the calm water which reflected the blue sky in it. Thankfully that squid was nowhere to be seen, that last thing Daphne wanted was to see some horrendous creature breaching the water and gliding upon the surface.
Lips curled into a disgusted sneer at the mere thought, the lake while nice to look at once in awhile was becoming a bore. Turning to head back to the castle, she began to consider working on that potions homework Snape assigned. The girl barely managed three steps before noticing something latching on to her ankle. Glancing down, eyes widened as she saw a disgusting, slimy tentacle wrapped around her ankle. She instantly brandished her wand, aiming at the tentacle hardly managing a syllable, three more tentacles came shooting out of the water, one wrapping around her waist, and the other two at her arms, knocking her wand to the grass. Trapped, Daphne could only scream, a blood curdling, high pitched shriek! That set off the squid it began to pull her into the water.
