42. Overcoming

Snape and I entered Dumbledore's office. Snape was cursing me all the way up to the office but I was somewhere else with my thoughts, very far away. Even Royalty tried to talk to me but I wasn't to obtain. Only when Professor Snape knocked on the door and Ro bit me then in my finger I realized, halfway, what was happening. 

Professor McGonagal, Professor Sprout, the house teacher of the Hufflepuffs and Professor Flitwick, the housteacher of the Ravenclaws were in the office. Everyone looked at me and Professor Snape while we entered the room.  

"Ah, Severus! You know you were requested to join our meeting with all the house teachers to discuss some matters concerning the tournament. But I see you had some other, obviously, more important matters to deal with." Dumbledore greeted us and winked at me.  

"Headmaster! This girl lied to me, retreated ill-behaved and pointed her wand at me and used a spell against me!" Snape said. My mouth opened in disbelieve.

"Was he really snitching on me? A teacher on a student?!"

"I beg you, Severus! Stop it! Can't you see how terrified this girl is?"  

"I am fine, Prof-"  

"You are saying to me to stop?! It's her, not me, to stop!" I was cut off by Snape who answered McGonagal.

"You and your accusations! They are not only making the poor children ill they are also making us mad! Especially me!"  

"No, I'm fine, real-" 

"Oh! I can barely imagine how something can make you more mad than you currently are." Snape cut me off again and insulted Professor McGonagal. The other professors gasped while McGonagal went red and quiet and Dubledore just smiled broadly. Was he enjoying all this? 

"Well, Severus, you weren't quite nice to Minerva although she was right. You really are making us ... insane. But nevertheless, you both are respected grown-ups and you know how to solve a problem or conflict." I think he didn't really believe what he said because he suppressed a chuckle.  

"And coming to you, Miss Charmé, what is the matter?" Dumbledore asked me but Snape answered instead.

"She was roaming through the corridors with her pet and disturbed others in their pleasant peace and then she lied to me that she was calling for help. Finally, she pointed her wand at me and used a spell against me." I wanted to protest but shut my mouth until my turn was to speak. 

"Now we should listen to her point of view as well, Severus." He said to him and looked at me with his sparkling eyes. He seemed quite amused.

"Eeeeh, he's not quite right, headmaster." I started and bought time to collect my thoughts.  

"We do wander the corridors but only to get to know this castle more. And me loving history and antique stuff fall in love with that building the first time I saw it." I remembered it shortly and went on.  

"And to be honest, we didn't got lost as I said to Professor Snape," I looked at him but he looked at McGonagal and rose his eyebrow to prove he was right.  

"We rested there, because I was tired and unfortunately it was in the dungeons." I stopped and was ashamed to continue saying I sang there a song for Royalty because he wanted me to sing.

"And what happened then, Miss Charmé?" Dumbledore waited patiently.

I took all my courage and said quickly with closed eyes: "There I sang a song for Royalty because he wanted me to sing!" I left my eyes closed but then when I heard nothing I opened one eye and the other one too.

Dumbledore's smile faded away, he had a straight face, a poker face, only his eyes were sparkling with more joy. He made me very unsure.  

"And you... sang... without considering this would disturb anyone?" He asked and I shook my head.  

"Continue." Dumbledore said.  

"Eehm, Professor Snape came and insulted us and therefore something happened in side me and I rose my wand at him. But I never used a spell against him!" I reassured every one.

"And what was that light?" Snape asked rudely.

"I-I don't know. It was not me." I said like a little girl who doesn't understand the world anymore.

"Don't lie to me!" He said and I flinched.

"Severus, she doesn't know. How will you force something out something when it is not in her?" Snape went quiet and stopped.

"Mmmhm. Well, I have only one solution to it," the headmaster made a dramatic pause.

"You have to sing the song to us as well, Miss Charmé!" He said with a smile. My mouth flew open.  

"But Albus-" Snape got cut off by the headmaster.  

"That's not a punishment? Well, I wouldn't see this as a punishment, your right. I would see this more like an overcoming, and you know this feels like a punishment in some cases too!" he was so right in that moment, so fucking right! I mean, I am a shy girl then how does he expect me singing in front my teachers? Hello? Teachers?! Now I am hundred percent sure there's something wrong with that guy and he really needs a doctor! 

"Galaxy, please sing for us." He said. I swallowed. I thought of how I would get out this moment but nothing was really good that would work properly.  

"Royalty, you said you will bring us back, now help me and bring us back. Play with me that song, just watch me and answer me when I am coming towards you while singing." I said in my mind to Rotalty and he agreed.  

"Okay, I will sing." Professor Flitwick got very excited and even clapped with his hands. I remembered that he was the music, choir and orchestra teacher too. Well, I think I have to disappoint him because he might hear the most horrible voice in his whole life now.  

"But I need music."

"Filius? Can you organize some music?" Dumbledore asked the short man.

"Yes, of course! I will bring a little group of my orchestra and choir with me. I only need some notes then."

Realizing that I would have to sing in front of more people then I stopped the music teacher: "NO! Stop!!" I screamed. He turned around quite surprised. 

"As I said, retreatingly ill-behaved." Snape gave a quite unnecessary remark which made me to stare angrily at him.

"I mean, that would take to much time. Just imagine, I have organize the notes, then make sure that every one gets a note sheet, then they have to practice it and would be too loud and annoying, it would even disturb the whole castle. And moreover, this room will be overloaded with people. And I don't think that this is the general idea of it." It looked like I convinced everyone in the room besides Snape. I sighed. He was even more difficult to please than a pregnant woman!!  

"I don't want to be mean or something, not at all, Professor Flitwick, but... I think you get my point." I smiled lightly.  

"Yes, I do. And I have to say that you're quite smart!" I smiled quite touched.  

"Thank you Professor."  

"But how will get your music now?" The short man asked. I thought... and had an idea.  

"Well, I have an idea, let's hope it will work."

I took out my wand and started thinking of drums, trumpets, guitars and all the instruments, only in a smaller size, in a size as big as of frogs. Then I imagined frogs, of course, who should play those instruments! I don't know why frogs... just don't ask!! And last but not least, I imagined a little choir of seven frogs, they had real voices hence they don't croak all the time. I pointed my wand then at the desk of the headmaster and imagined very hard what I wanted to appear there.  

Focusing very hard, white dust came out of the top of my wand and slowly formed my pictures.  

Seeing my successful work right in front of my eyes I was very proud!

The headmaster laughed and said: "I haven't seen something that wonderful since ages! Great work!" All the other professors agreed very amused. I smiled proudly and looked at Professor Snape and did what he usually does, raising my brow. 

I knew it would work! I said to me. Imagining things in my hand was possible then why not transferring this from my hand into my wand?

"Yes!! I am the boss!!"

Through my success my self-confidence rose and I wanted to sing, in fact! 

I cleared my throat and hummed a few tones, as before. Gosh! I was nervous again!! I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. 

I started singing.  

And after two verses I opened my eyes and performed this song with Ro like a pro. I got lost and he got lost in this song. I forgot my whole surrounding and just sang:

" ......... Next to me ooooh

Next to me ooooh

Next to me ooooh

You will find him, you'll find him next to me ......... "
