Time seemed to fly by, one minute Kayleigh was getting dressed in a morning, and the next she was pulling on her pajamas at night. From time to time she wondered if the other champions felt this way, or if she was alone.
Damon was not really seen that much and Annabelle always looked fierce... It was quite intimidating to think that she would be facing those two, not necessarily face to face but going against them. If Annabelle's middle name was anything to go by, then it was not going to be pretty.
The days continued to fly by and before anybody knew it... It was the morning of the first task.
"Just keep calm-" Hermione said.
"Don't worry about any scores just do your best-" Said Ginny.
"Ignore the audience, it distracts you-" Harry began.
"Wipe the smirk off Slytherins Kayleigh! If a Gryffindor wins both of the tournaments we will definatley win!" Was Ron's more loud opinion. Nobody even bothered to correct him, even Hermione was tired of trying to rid Ron of his opinions on Slytherins. Last year had proven though that not all Slytherins were bad. Dumbledore had always said it was our choices that define us.
Breakfast was quite chaotic, most wished her luck (Including the Slytherins, this seemed to annoy Ron) and Harry sat in between her and Ginny giving her any last minute advice on how to go about the task.
"There is three of us Harry, only one wins!" She said a little hysterically. He nodded looking at Kayleigh very seriously.
"And its gonna be you," He said, " Your stronger than they are." Kayleigh smiled at how this entire thing was starting to sound like a book she read a while back called the Hunger Games.
After breakfast they all went down to the pitch where the first task was being held. Large walls blocked the actual pitch from view. To ensure everybody was an equal footing, Hagrid had not been told what was coming this year and as a result nobody else knew.
Whilst sitting inside the tent, Kayleigh listened to sounds coming from the pitch outside. As the Hogwarts champion she went last, and she was not sure whether to be grateful or not. It depended how you looked on it... She was able to wait a bit longer and gather a bit of an idea as to what the champions were facing and therefore prepare herself. On the other hand though... Just sitting here waiting was more nerve wracking then just going out and getting it over with.
Suddenly a cheer went up from outside and then came the announcement...
" And now for our final champion today... Kayleigh from Hogwarts!"
And so Kayleigh stood up and walked outside onto the sunny pitch outside.
