You just may not like it. : )Status:
Cedric Diggory wants nothing other than to survive through the tournament that he can take lightly no more. Unexpected second parties agree with his goal and begin to help him in his plight. However… just who is it that can really
help him? The faceless benefactor
who has taught him the importance of a ruse… or the girl whose hair is as unmanageable as her worry? Who can Cedric depend on when he doesn’t think he can depend on himself? Throw in a bit of romance, drama, and a mysterious diary and you’ve got the makings for an exceptional sixth year at Hogwarts for this Hufflepuff.
Also, Cloaked Business has been updated and polished. No major changes, but (hopefully) improved readability. Go on. READ THEM BOTH!!! : )Title:
Even the simplest of questions, the simplest of statements, the simplest of actions, can have hidden piorities. Hermione learns to read between the lines in a not-so-subtle way. How much "cloaked business" does Cedric Diggory have? Does Hermione have any of her own?...Extra:
to be funny...
