63. The Improvised Plan

"Earlier today Professor Moody placed the Triwizard cup deep within the maze. Only he knows its exact position." Dumbledore announced. 
It was already dark and the last task took place in just minutes.
The Quidditch pitch was changed therefore into a mysterious maze days ago. The champions had to find their way through the maze, to the goblet. 
"Now as Mr Diggory-" Everyone around us cheered.
" -and Mr Potter-" I cheered. "- tied for first position they will be the first to enter the maze. 
Followed by Mr Krum-" This time the Durmstrang students across from us cheered. I clapped politely and tried to ignore Lirim who was staring at me all the time, hoping I would look at him only once. 
Actually, I really feel guilty because after that outburst in Snape's office I ran into Lirim and he just asked me if he could sit next to me during the last task but I shouted at him still angry by Snape and said really bad things to him although he was only being nice. 
I sighed.
"The first person to touch the cup will be the winner. I've instructed the staff to patrol the perimeter, if at any point should a contestant wish to withdraw from the task he or she need only send up red sparks with their wands. Contestants, gather round."
With that the headmaster spoke to the champions. 
I looked at the teachers who patrolled around the maze because I had an idea. 
Professor Flitwick, Sinister, McGonagal and Moody stood ready and of course Snape. 
Anger rose in side me as I remembered our argument a few hours ago. It took me great afford to calm down earlier and now.
But actually it was good that he made me angry because I had an idea then how I could save Cedric. Every time when I'm angry I have a stroke of genius and mind blowing ideas.
The little ball of contestants and their headmasters tore open.
"Champions! Prepare yourselves." Moody shouted.
Harry and Cedric got ready. 
Cedric hugged his father and Harry looked one last time at us, Hermione, Ron, Mrs. Weasley and me. Mrs. Weasley stayed because the headmaster allowed someone from the champion's family to come for the last task. But in Harry's case there wasn't any family... or rather, any nice family which tolerate this world.
That made me think. Would my family accept this world? Would my family tolerate my bond to this world?
Everyone waited thrilled for the permission of the headmaster to start the third and final task.
"On the count of three... ONE-" Dumbledore groaned as the canon fired up and Mr. Filtch lost his last chance to make the canon blew off at the right moment.
Though, the last task began.
Harry and Cedric entered the maze from different directions, on their way the huge round of applause and the cheers of their friends and supporters. 
Both disappeared. Now we had to wait. 
Well, I couldn't wait for much long. 
After half an hour I stood up and bought some Bertie Beans and dragon made popcorn. 
That went by an other half an hour.
After 15 min more I couldn't sat patiently on my seat and decided that it was time now.
"I'm back in a second." I said to Ron and walked through the packed seats and laughing people to the very end of the stands and to the nearest corner of the maze.
"Ro?" I called him in my head. 
Someone nudged me in my leg. It was Royalty.
"You know what you have to do right?" I asked him to make sure he didn't forget our plan.
"Yep." He said.
"Right. Just-"
"Is there any reason why you left the stands and... wander around this part of the maze?" Snape cut me off. 
I turned around and felt like a thief who got caught.
"That's not of your business." I said angrily as I remembered our last conversation and made him more suspicious.
"Screw you, Galaxy! You made him suspicious!" I thought nervous.
"You, did, Galaxy!" Ro said to under line this.
"What are you up to?" He asked and walked up to me, closer and closer. Like a lion that is going to attack you and jump at you.
I backed away and hit the edge of the maze with my back. 
Snape got closer and stopped only then when we made out our faces in the dark. 
He looked as if he tried to read me. 
Suddenly I felt a pain in my head. I moaned and took my head in my hands. It just vanished as it came. 
I looked up at him. I had a feeling that Snape did this. 
But before I was able to ask him he said to me: "Don't lie to me." 
It was again like a beg but this time more intense and with pain.
We heard some leafs rustling and tore apart immediately. 
"Professor Flitwick!" I said relieved. He was a little surprised to see me and Snape together. 
And I was relieved to see him because I had an idea how he could help me to get out of that situation.
"I was looking for you!" I said and looked at Snape for a second. Snape understood that I had found an excuse.
"For me?" Professor Flitwick asked worried. 
"Everything alright?" 
"Oh, of course, Professor! I just wanted to ask you whether I am allowed to sing?" Both, Snape and Flitwick, looked shocked. Snape, however, wasn't quite shocked he just looked at me quickly as I said 'to sing' but Professor Flitwick... he was about to cry!
"O-of corse!" He said in a high voice. 
"Just tell the band that I gave you permission." He said with a trembling voice.
"Thank you, Professor." I curtsied, looked at Snape for a second and left with Ro.
"What are you doing?!" Royalty asked me madly.
"Changing the plan." 
We walked back. 
I climbed the stairs up of the little stage in front of the stands where the band and the choir had their performances.
"Excuse me." I said to the one person who just stood there and did nothing. There was a little pause for the musicians and singers to recharge. 
"Eer. Professor Flitwick allowed me to sing one song here." I said nervously.
"Really? Wait. John? Irene?" He called two Hufflepuffs, a lean boy with short brown hair and a tall girl with blond short hair.
"She wants to sing."
"Only one song and only today." I added quickly. I wanted to sing only once and not every time they performed! 
"Of course! What do you want to sing?" The girl asked very politely. 
"Eeer... do you know any muggle song?" I asked.
"Yeah, we do! But only one. Unfortunately, we can't remember how it's called." The boy answered me.
"Alright. Can you play the beginning of it? Maybe I know that song." I said. 
"Yeah, just wait." The boy left and reappeared with his guitar. 
He started playing. 
Just at the very first tune I remembered that song. 
It was such a silly ear worm and actually a embarrassing song. Nevertheless, it remembered me of home. The radio back at home always played annoying ear worms and annoying news at every hour.
"Do you know it?" The boy asked me suddenly. 
After interrupting me in my thoughts, I said to him only: "Katy Perry - I kissed a Girl"
"Yeah! That's how it's called!" The boy said.
"Why do you only know this song?" I asked dejected.
"Don't know. Professor just said he heard a muggle song the very first time in his life and that he wanted to teach us this one. That's how we know 'I kissed a girl.'." The boy said as it was the most normal thing on earth. 
My hands flew up in the air and pattered over my head. 
"Am I really going to sing 'I kissed a Girl' in front of the whole school and its guests?! Wait, maybe I can find an excuse again?"
"Ms. Charmé!" Professor Flitwick sprinted up the stage stairs with Snape.
"Good you didn't start yet!" The little man said.
"Why it's good?" I asked very dumb.
"Because we can listen to you now!" He said happily.
My eyes widened in shock.
"Now I have to sing! Without any excuses!"
I sighed depressed. I caught a twisting of Snape's lips. I was very sure he enjoyed seeing me that desperate!
"Now please start, Ms. Charmé. I asked Professor McGonagal and Moody if they could take our duties for five minutes to listen to you. Therefore we have to leave quite quickly." Professor Flitwick pushed me.
I nodded and looked at the guitar boy. 
"Do you want a choir too?" The girl with short blond hair asked me. I shook my head nervously. With that the choir left and only five people remained on stage: the drummer, the guitar boy, the piano girl, a boy with magical special effects and ... me.
"You have to use your wand to enlarge your voice." The boy with the guitar whispered to me. 
I took out my wand suddenly and grasped it tightly. 
"T-tonorus maxima!" I said scared. 
Everyone and everything went quite at once and stared at me.
"Hi!" I said weakly and felt strange as I listened to my voice for the first time. 
"I... I ... wanted to sing." Everyone kept on staring at me beside the twins. They cheered and got mad! 
I coughed a little nervous and didn't know what to do then.
"Let's start on the count of 'three'." The guitar boy whispered to me and started counting: "One... two... one ... two ... three... go!" The music started to play and I looked baffled around.
"What if I sing very bad or if I forget the lyrics?" I thought with fear and closed my eyes.

"This was never the way I planned Not my intention 
I got so brave, drink in hand Lost my discretion 
It's not what I'm used to Just wanna try you on 
I'm curious for you Caught my attention"

My mouth started to sing and it felt as if it was used to sing. I opened my eyes and sung confidently:

"I kissed a girl and I liked it The taste of her cherry chap stick 
I kissed a girl just to try it I hope my boyfriend don't mind it 
It felt so wrong It felt so right Don't mean I'm in love tonight 
I kissed a girl and I liked it I liked it"
The people in the stands started screaming and cheering. I walked down the stage, towards Professor Flitwick and Snape.

"No, I don't even know your name It doesn't matter 
You're my experimental game Just human nature 
It's not what, good girls do Not how they should behave 
My head gets so confused Hard to obey"
Professor Fliwick went delirious and Snape was unreadable, he just looked down at me very arrogantly. 
Then I had an amazing idea again. I walked into the other direction and continued to sing.

"I kissed a girl and I liked it The taste of her cherry chap stick 
I kissed a girl just to try it I hope my boyfriend don't mind it 
It felt so wrong It felt so right Don't mean I'm in love tonight 
I kissed a girl and I liked it I liked it"

I stopped in front of Karkaroff and closed the distance between us though our noses were inches away. Then I sung teasingly:

"Us girls we are so magical Soft skin, red lips, so kissable 
Hard to resist so touchable Too good to deny it Ain't no big deal, it's innocent"
He gulped nervously and very controlled. And I turned around with a smile on my face. I knew Karkaroff was watching my figure from behind very closely but I kept on singing and walked back to the stage:

"I kissed a girl and I liked it The taste of her cherry chap stick 
I kissed a girl just to try it I hope my boyfriend don't mind it 
It felt so wrong It felt so right Don't mean I'm in love tonight 
I kissed a girl and I liked it I liked it"
As the song stopped everyone clapped madly and cheered madly! It felt like being in a stadium!
I smiled shy and proud. I did sing perfectly and the crowd was going nuts! 
Professor Fliwick stormed up the stage. He was running to me with his arms opened but he stopped just in front of me, bringing his arms down and remembering that he was a teacher and couldn't hug his student. 
I suppressed a laugh and thought once a gain how cute he was. 
Snape came up too and I wished that he would hug me. I looked away and cast away my hopeless thought.
"You were outstanding!" Professor Flitwick exclaimed proudly. 
"There won't be a missing singer in our band anymore!" 
I looked up and said quickly: "Oh, ... no... eer... that was the first and last time I sung in front of people." 
The eyes of this tiny man saddened and his face looked disappointed.
"Sorry." I tried to make it better but unfortunately it didn't work. 
"Er... yeah... We better go then... Severus!" Professor Fliwick left the stage a little confused and Snape followed him, not losing one word about my performance. I sighed.
"You rock!" The boy with the guitar said. I smiled forced.
"You too." 
"Pity you won't join us. We could have made the people insane!" He added and left me alone on the stage. 
The people in the stands went on what they did before I sung. Some still looked at me with great expectations that I might sing again. I climbed down the stage and left for the other corner where the stands and the edge of the maze nearly touched each other.
"Ro?" I called for him again. 
"Here." He said and appeared from the side.
"Good. Now... don't say anything about that singing and let's start with our plan."
I took a little vial out of my robes and opened the phial of liquid luck, given by Sirius. I drank the half bottle, believing that was enough. I looked down at Ro and he nodded and laid on the floor, then he started screaming. It sounded as if a lion was growling very deep and very desperate.
Now I started screaming too: "Help! Help! Somebody help!"
I heard someone hurrying towards us and Moody appeared, just as I hoped. I smiled a little. That liquid luck was quite impressive.
"Professor! He's-"
"What happened?" Moody asked annoyed.
"I don't know! I found him like that!" I acted like I was going to cry.
Moody bent down and examined Royalty.
A nervousness rose in me and Royalty. What if Moody found out that Ro was perfectly fine and we acted only this way?
Moody rose again and looked at me very suspicious. 
"He's... fine." My eyes widened. "He caught us, Galaxy!" Ro screamed in my head. 
"T-that's impossible! Just look! He's feeling terrible!" Ro started growling again.
"Something must have escaped the maze and it's running free trough the grounds now! We have to cancel the third task and catch that thing!" I said. 
But Moody looked at me only. 
"You're trying to manipulate the maze!" He said madly and scared me.
"Then what are you doing here, near the maze, where students aren't allowed to come?"
"I will use the Cruciatus curse again if you lie to me." He threatened me. 
I gulped and looked at him. 
"Think Galaxy, think!" I thought.
"I... wanted to enter the maze." I said stupidly what crossed my mind.
"Are you mad?!" Ro said but I ignored him.
Moody looked at me for a while then he started laughing. I looked around and hoped he won't make the other professors come by his laugh.
"Our little whore..." He said and made me suddenly angry.
"Snape won't appreciate that. You might be a little different when your out of that thing." Moody laughed again. This time he made me wonder what he meant by "...a little different...".
"What do you mean?" I asked him.
He stopped laughing and looked at me for a while. 
Right then the same image of that man appeared. He was walking up to me and his wand was pointing at me. 
"Why don't you just experience yourself what I mean?" Suddenly the man grabbed me and right then that vision dissolved. Moody was grabbing my arm and made a little whole in the edge of the maze. 
Then he looked at and said: "Just send red sparks to have Snapee get you out of there." 
With that he pushed me in side.
"Galaxy!" I heard someone calling my name and I believed that it was Snape but he never called me by my first name. 
I turned around confused and looked through the closing whole where Moody pushed me through. 
I saw a pair of eyes looking at me through that little gap. It were black eyes, black unreadable, deep eyes... the eyes of Snape.
I gasped and fell down on my bottom.
"Snape!" I whispered and remembered his eyes. They were looking desperately and anxiously at me. 
"Galaxy!" Ro called me.
"Yes. I'm just there where the whole was." 
"Snape is furious! He's hexing Moody! Professor McGonagal and the other teachers came. They tore them apart and now they're going to the headmaster with me." He said quickly. Suddenly, I saw through Ro's eyes. He was walking between the teachers back to the stands where the headmaster was. 
On the right, beside Rotalty, Snape held Moody at his collar. He was really looking furious! 
Just as they approached the stand the headmaster and the guest headmasters walked up to Ro and the professors. 
The crowd quieted and tried to eavesdrop anything.
"Ms. Charmé entered the maze because of Moody!" Snape growled low and pushed Moody towards the headmaster. 
"She forced me! She jinxed me and made me to enter her! And I am sure she do jinx people to get what she want." Moody said and looked at Snape particularly. 
"She jinxed me! At the ball!" Karkaroff said. 
"See." Moody said slyly.
"She didn't! They're lying!" Snape said but it seemed that Dumbledore wasn't listening to him. Instead he was kneeling in front of Royalty. 
"Ro! Don't tell anything!" I thought desperately. 
"Tell her to make the red sparks."
"No! I won't!" I shouted. 
Ro shook his head. I felt a strange hurting on my butt at once. Ro spitted.
"You beast! Refusing Dumbledore's instructions! I will teach you to-"
"Alastor!" Dumbledore shouted.
Everyone went quiet.
"I don't tolerate anything of this! No kicking pets, no threatening pets nor telling pets what they have to do!"
He said in a normal voice but angry and annoyed.
Moody walked back in the shadows and pouted like a child.
"Tell her then, after refusing my wish,..." the headmaster said louder hence Moody heard that I refused his instructions not Ro.
"To be strong and very careful-"
"Albus..." Snape said his name in disbelieve.
"To be very careful and tell her to remember there is someone very special for her."
With that I was tossed out of Royalty's mind and was back in that dark maze. 
I was still sitting on the ground. 
"Who's that special person?" I thought in wonder. 
"Aaaah!" A girl screamed. That woke me up from my thoughts and I jumped on my feet. 
"Fleur!" I said and started running towards that scream, my wand pointed in front of me, prepared to attack anything which crossed my way. 
But like a maze is, the many twists and junctions won't let me to that scream. They changed and closed and changed and closed again! 
I was getting nervous and tensed. Every part seemed to be a dead end and every time when I walked back the maze was leading me somewhere else!
This and the darkness and the strange noises made me paranoid and scared, very scared. 
I stopped suddenly and sat down on the ground. 
I decided to wait and let one of the champions find that goblet and then I can see how I will save Cedric. 
"No stop! He's bewitched Cedric!" I heard suddenly. I jumped up and started running to Harry's voice.
"Get off me!" Cedric said more closer to me than Harry's voice.
"He's bewitched!" Harry said again. I was getting closer to them!
Then there was silence beside the sound of running.
"They're running! They found the cup!" I thought happily and started running through the maze with new high spirits. 
"Harry! Harry!" Cedric screamed suddenly. Just then I break trough the part where Harry and Cedric and the Cup was. 
Cedric fell down and the plants started wrapping around him. I gasped. 
"Was he dying now? But it looked different in my dreams! How can I safe him?"
But before I was able to only think what I could do Harry freed Cedric from the plants. 
"You know for a moment there I thought you were gonna let it get me." Cedric said.
"For a moment so did I." Harry said back.
"Some game huh?" 
"Some game."
It seemed that they didn't see me because they just stood there and did nothing!
Suddenly a strong wind was blowing.
"Hey! Heeeey!" I shouted and decided to make me myself visible to them. 
Both turned around and pointed their wands at me.
"Who are you?" Harry shouted.
"What are you?" Cedric corrected him.
I was hurt. 
"You won't recognize me, Harry?" I said gloomily.
"Prove your the Galaxy I know!" He shouted back. I walked closer to them.
"Stop! Remain where you are!" Cedric shouted and I obeyed.
I thought about what would prove that I was who I am.
"Your god uncle ..."
"... is dead!" Harry continued quickly. 
"Something like that. Yeah. But he was quite stern and "serious"!" I said.
Harry lowered his wand arm. He understood and he was convinced that I was Galaxy. Because nobody else beside Hermione and Royalty, Remus and of course Dumbledore knew about Sirius.
"You've got a god uncle?" Cedric asked in disbelieve but still pointed his wand at me.
"No, actually not. You know, that can't be. But that god uncle thing is ... some kind of joke. Only Harry and his friends get that." I said quickly. I brought that topic up therefore I felt responsible to end that topic too!
"Yeah. She's Galaxy. She's safe." Harry said.
Only then Cedric lowered his wand too.
"May I come closer now?" I asked ironically.
"Yes, you can." Cedric said seriously.
I walked up and stopped between them. I still felt that both weren't 100% sure that I was Galaxy. 
"Cedric, I congratulated you, after your first task. Remember? And I refused to drink butter beer." He looked at me surprised.
"Galaxy!" He exclaimed. 
"Hi!" I smiled. He smiled back.
"What are you doing here?" Both asked then.
"I... eeer... I am not a contestant, no... I was... Moody send me in side this maze." 
"What?!" Both asked again.
"He's really insane!" Cedric said.
"Yep, and scary!" I added.
"Fine. Now?" I asked as we all stared in front of us, at the goblet.
"Go. Take it, you saved me!" Cedric said to Harry and I was more than happy with that.
"Together, on three." Cedric looked at Harry surprised and I was too! 
"Harry!" I said but he already started counting."One, two, three!" Right then everyone grasped the cup, including me.
There something strange happened. 
We started flying and spinning at the same time, a little like apparating, and it seemed that we were taken to an other place.
