“Nobody asked you, Mudblood.”
Gwaine blinked, unsure how he felt about the ridiculous sounding slur, and the world shifted.
Cenred went from standing in their way to splayed out on the ground in the space of a second. He clutched at his cheek, glaring at them from behind his hovering cronies as Leon shook out his hand.
Gwaine didn’t know what surprised him more: Cenred crumbling like a soggy biscuit or Leon punching Cenred in the bloody face.
“Don’t you ever say that word again.”
“Or what? Cenred spat from the ground. “What will you do me?”
“I’ll see to it that you spend the rest of the year in the hospital wing while Madam Pomfrey re-grows your bones.”
Whether Leon’s threat was plausible or not, it quickly shut Cenred up.
“Come on, Gwaine.”
Gwaine blinked, hurrying after Leon as he strode away, his view of his friend forever changed.
