Wizarding Week

Louise has always dreamt of going somewhere completely new, and when her school organises an exchange with a mysterious school called Hogwarts, it's her perfect moment. Louise doesn't realise the magic behind the doors of Hogwarts, and maybe, just maybe, she might even fit in with the people there more.


16. Confusion.

We just stood there at first, staring blankly at one another. I didn't know what to say, or do. There was a churning feeling inside my chest, maybe it was guilt. I'd been blowing Alex off for three years, saying that I wasn't interested in having a relationship. Draco had come along, and yeah, I hadn't actually had a relationship with him, but we had something.

Alex had brown hair, with quite a long fringe that swooped over his eyes slightly, he reminded me of that pop singer Justin Bieber. He wasn't incredibly handsome, but he wasn't ugly either, and he certainly wasn't Draco. 

Draco was hanging limp in Alex's arms, I assumed that Alex must have knocked Draco out or something while I had been seeing to Ginny. Maybe that was a good thing, or maybe it wasn't. 

I opened my mouth to try  and say something to him but no words came out, my throat had tightened up, I didn't have any excuse for him, I didn't have anything, no words.

"I don't understand why." Alex whispered, looking down at Draco, "He is obviously awful to you."

"Alex-" I start, "You don't understand, it's complicated." I reach out to him but he flinches away from me, like I'm some type of disease.

"No!" He shouts, "I do understand, I understand all too well." I see a flash before his eyes and his expression changes to a look of pure hatred, "Whatever Louise." With that, he chucks Draco on the floor, and disappears down the corridor.

I sink to my knees, it's like the floor is swallowing me whole and there's nothing I can do about it. My stomach feels like it has been twisted into a different shape and I can't really feel anything anymore. The feeling of knowing that I had hurt Alex badly was enough to completely break me, that was something I couldn't handle. Guilt. Knowing I had hurt someone has awful, like being stabbed.

Draco is a little too far away for me to reach him, but there wouldn't be any point anyway. He hates my guts, and he's not the boy I fell in love with. Not even close. The boy he used to be died that night, I just had to accept it in my head.

My head was throbbing, before I knew it, I was on my feet again and running down the corridor, leaving the chaos that I had created behind me. It wasn't just the scene that was chaos, my head was as well. Seeing Alex again had made me rethink, or maybe not even rethink, it was just like a bomb had exploded in my head and everything was confusing. Luckily the corridors were empty, and I didn't crash or see anyone while I was running, I just needed to run. Away from Hogwarts, away from Draco, and I guess, away from me.
