Today was a day to remember, my dear reader. As I strutted into Defense Against the Dark Arts class, I couldn't help but feel a sense of excitement in the air. Professor Snape's icy gaze swept over the room as he announced that we would be practicing dueling today.

Of course, Draco Malfoy had to open his big mouth and challenge me to a duel. The nerve of that boy! With a smirk on my face, I accepted his challenge without hesitation. It was time to show him who truly ruled the roost at Hogwarts.

As we squared off in front of our classmates, wands at the ready, I could see Malfoy's confidence falter ever so slightly. He may have thought he had me cornered with his sly tactics and quick spells, but little did he know that I had been preparing for this moment for weeks.

With each flick of my wand and every incantation muttered under my breath, I began to gain the upper hand in our duel. Malfoy's face twisted in frustration as spell after spell bounced harmlessly off my shield charm.

I could hear whispers from our classmates as they watched in awe at how effortlessly I outmaneuvered Malfoy's attacks. The satisfaction swelled within me as I knew victory was within reach.

Finally, with one swift motion and an expertly executed disarming charm from yours truly (if i do say so myself), Malfoy found himself flat on his back with his wand skittering across the floor towards me.

The cheers erupted around us as Professor Snape declared me the winner of our duel - much to Malfoy's chagrin. But oh how sweet it felt to come out on top against such an arrogant opponent!

As class came to an end and students began filing out of the room, some congratulated me while others shot envious glares in my direction. But none of that mattered because deep down inside...I knew that today marked another triumph for Sebastian Sallow – master duelist extraordinaire!

Until next time, Sebastian
