25. The Headmasters Office

It was a silent walk to the headmaster. Only the clacking of our shoes and the ringing of my 'payals' were heard. Every now and then I looked at Royalty to see if he kept pace with us which he did.  

After a long walk we finally stopped in front of a gargoyles. I wondered why but when Professor McGonogal said 'Crockroach Clusters' - very strange by the way - it was clear; the gargoyles moved and revealed winding stairs which Professor McGonogal frequently climbed. I hesitated until the stairs stopped moving.

"Miss Charmé, hurry up!" the voice of Professor McGonagal came to me down.

"I am coming, Professor!" I said cheerish. I don't know why I am always cheerish and friendly and happy to others although I am worried and confused! 

Finally, I climbed those many stairs and I was panting while Professor McGonagal raised an eyebrow and Royalty jumped happily because he was allowed to rump around those stairs.

"Catch your breath, Miss Charmé and do more sports, girl!" The last part was more motherly said and I felt a warmth in me. 

Then she turned around to knock on a door. She opened the door and we went in the headmasters office. 

The room was lit by a dim light but it was enough to make out how the room looked like. There was a big desk and on the opposite of it there were chairs. A few stairs lead to an open room in the back of the table. There I recognized something like a bowl. And on the walls there were moving portraits which looked at us curiously and some even disregarding. All in all, the room was on the one hand messy but on the other hand tidied up and organized on its own way. 

"Albus, Miss Charmé is with me. I brought her to you as you said." Professor McGonagal said while I was looking around the room.

"Ah, great! Thank you Minerva. Good evening, Miss Charmé." Professor Dumbledore smiled brightly at me and his eyes were as always sparkling over his half-moon spectacles.

"Good evening, Professor, Headmaster Dumbledore, Sir!" I smiled back. He chuckled.

"You don't have to call me like this. It's a bit long... And I don't want to be called like that. It makes me feel old more older than I am. Headmaster or Professor is enough." He chuckled again. I smiled.

"Of course, Sir!" I looked around the room again.

"Please have a seat, Miss Charmé." Dumbledore showed with his arm to the chairs infront of his desk. I nodded and sat down.

"Oh, and Minerva, please let us have a private talk." I looked back to the Professor who looked from the headmaster to me and then back at the headmaster and nodded and went off. 

Suddenly, I felt very alone although Royalty was shoving him against my legs to show me his presence.  

"How was your arrival, Miss Charmé? I hope pleasant. Everything unpacked and settled yet?" Dumbledore said while he took his seat opposite of me. I coughed.

"Eeehm, not really... I wanted to unpack my bags but then Professor McGonagal arrived to bring me to you." I said weakly while I looked down on my hands.

"My apologizes, Miss Charmé. It was truely not my intension to disturb your process of adjustment, here at Hogwarts!" I shot my head up.

"Oh. No, no! Headmaster, now you are embarrassing me. Please, ..." He chuckled.

"Can I embarrass you even more?" I went red and I looked down at my hands again. I smiled shyly.

"You have a wonderful smile! May I wish something from you, Galaxy?" I looked curious up not only because of the fact that he, the headmaster, wishes something from me, his student, but also because of he calling me by my first name! He looked down from his glasses. I nodded.

"Please smile and laugh in those walls of Hogwarts. We need someone who laughs and smiles especially in the difficult time we will have to face." I felt unsecure when he drifted away at his last words.

"Do it for me." he said. I gulped and nodded. Then I smiled, for him. He looked for a few seconds at me when a squeal startled me up. Royalty was spitting.  

"Yes, Fawkes. I will introduce you, too! But actually I don't have to anymore!" he chuckled again.

"Sorry, Sir, but to whom are you talking to? And what noise - " I was cut off by a red and gracious bird which was flying above us so elegantly.

"I was talking to him, Fawkes. My phoenix! My friend." I gasped when Fawkes landed infront of me on the desk. I looked very closely at him. He was as big as a swan only with red feathers. I shifted closer to the desk in my seat to see him closer and he approached me too. I was stunned when I saw his tail feathers, they were golden! I gasped. I looked in the black eyes of the phoenix and thought

"You are the most beautiful flying creature I have ever seen!" The phoenix clicked beautifully with his nib.

"I am, indeed! But who are you?" My eyes widened.

"You can understand me?" I thought. The bird clicked again.

"Yes, I can! So, who are you?" I opened my mouth and closed it when I remembered that he can read my mind.

"I am Galaxy Charmé. A new student." I thought and smiled at him.

"Are you only a student? I can see more in you. Are you lying to me?!" The phoenix started to burn in little flames.

"No. I am not." I whispered stunned and unsecure. Then Royalty jumped in my lap and then on the table infront of the phoenix. Royalty was hissing at him when Fawkes suddenly flew into Royalty and he blazed up in the body of Royalty. Royalty screamed and fell down on the desk. He didn't move. I stood up in disbelieve. Everything went very fast. I didn't understand what happened. I tried to talk with Royalty in my thoughts.

"Royalty? Can you hear me?" No answer.

"Can you hear me?" I spoke now.

Then my head startet spinning and I saw dark green images flying past me. Then red and orange ones. I took my head in my hands and closed my eyes, hoping the images will go away and the caused headache too but they didn't. I gasped and I fell on my knees. I couldn't hear anything just clacking, crackling and snapping.

"Stop!" I whimpered

"Stop it! Royalty! Stop! Fawkes! Stop it! I never lied to you. Just stop it! You are hurting us!" I cried.

There was a loud squeal as same as the one in the beginning. Suddenly, the images vanished and my body felt numb, my arms fell to the ground. Time after time I remembered where I was and then I saw that I was on the ground, my back supported by the legs of the chair, I was sitting on a few moments ago.

The headmaster who stood now besides me and who had one hand on my shoulder was looking very worried. He said something but I couldn't hear it, everything was dull and I only heard my heavy breathing. I looked around and saw the liveless tail of Royalty hanging down from the edge of the desk. I tried somehow to get up but I couldn't I reached out for the tail because the desk was too far away. I looked at the slightly unclear image of the headmaster to explain to him that I want to have Royalty in my arms and that he should help me. I cried helpless.

Slowly I heard him say: "No... you... he... hospital... Pomfray... Severus!" I didn't understand what he said. I looked at him in question.

Then I saw in the corners of my eyes a dark, bat like figure wrapping his arms around me and lifting me up. Surprisingly, I clinged perfectly into his arms and his touch relaxed me very much.

When he rose with me up then I took the chance to grab my liveless cat but I was only able to stroke its silky fur.

"Stupid... can't ... her own... want... her cat..." I heard a deep and very masculine voice which calmed me down. But then I saw that the white paw of Royalty jerked, I felt relieved and saw everything around me darkened, smoothed by the deep, masculine, unclear voice and his strong, comforting grap around me.
