50. The Ball's Preparations

Clara's P.O.V

After all of our classes were over, I went with the girls to the dresses shop again, and we got our dresses. The ball was tomorrow! I couldn't believe it! I was so excited!

So after we went there, we took the dresses to our dormitories, each one of us put hers on a different corner. I put mine in the closet, and started looking at it and smiling like an idiot. I want to wear this dress and dance with Kyle now! The girls put their dresses in their closets and laid in their beds. 

Max was talking about her dress, and she kept on saying that she wasn't sure about wearing the dress. It's not the first time I wear a fancy dress, but this time I'm wearing it for someone specific, someone special, someone I truly love. 

"You think Kyle's gonna like it?" I asked Alex. 

"Oh, he's gonna love it!"I smiled and laid in my bed too.

"I can help you with your makeup, you know?" I said talking to all the girls. 

"Really? Awesome!" Alex said. 

"Come on now, let's have some sleep. Nobody wants to oversleep tomorrow, right?" 

And so we all tried to sleep instantly. I didn't succeed, kept on imagining things that could happen tomorrow. I lived the day in my imagination before it even happened. But at last, I was asleep.




I woke up early the other day. The earliest of my dorm-mates. I awoke them all gently, well, all except for Max. 

"Come on, don't you think we should probably have a ladies' day?" I asked. 

"What do you mean?" Max asked. 

"We'll put some natural masks now, and take long showers, and then we'll put on some make up and I'll help you with your hair style."

"I won't say no to that." Max said. "Well, except the makeup part." I looked at Alex and we both smiled. We both knew we were going to put Max some makeup, just like we let her buy the dress. 

I gave the girls the masks and they started putting them on. We had plenty of time, professor Flitwick said that we only should have Charms class today and that's it. Because we had a ball today they other classes were canceled. And the Charms class wasn't till afternoon. 

The girls looked so funny with the masks. After putting them on we started relaxing and after half an hour we took the mask off, washing our faces with water. Then we went to the great hall to have lunch.


Alex's P.O.V


We went to the Great Hall and made a deal. We weren't supposed to talk to the boys or sit with them, so we ate lunch on our house's table. It was kinda fun, we talked about funny stuff. Lara -who was facing the Gryffindor's table- kept on telling us about the boys, they were waving her, and telling her to call us, but she let them think she didn't notice them and continued talking to us. It made us laugh a lot. Kyle, Remus and Sirius were coming to our table, so Lara instantly told us and we walked out of the hall. It was so mean, but so funny. It was really better, cause sitting with them was like saying, "hey this is the ugly me, meet me tonight in my new dress and I'll be all beautiful and we'll dance together and it'll be all perfect." And besides, we wanted to talk about the ball and it wasn't cool to talk about the ball in front of the boys. It just wasn't. 

So when we got out of the hall we went to our common room and sat there for a while, till it was the class's time. We had this class with the Slytherins so we didn't have to worry about hiding from the boys in class. 




It was time to get ready now. I got my dress and started wearing it, Max helped me with the zipper. After that I went to the mirror and started combing my hair, doing my best not to touch the dress. Then Clara came, she was too wearing her dress and she had a hair dryer, a comb, bobby pins, makeup stuff and many other things. 

"Clara, how did you get these stuff? I mean, I'm the muggle here." I said. 

"Yeah, I know. I found them in a muggles' shop and I really liked them, so I bought them." 

She ordered me to sit on the chair by the mirror and started curling my hair with the curling wand. She then got it all glittery with something that I didn't know, and then put a fake, navy flower on my hair. The flower was on the left side of my head. She then put my hair on my right shoulder and told me to come after Max's turn so she can do me my makeup. 

Clara was really talented. What she did to Max was brilliant with her dress. And what she did to me suited my dress perfectly too. She did a bow with Max's hair, but it looked completely elegant somehow. Even that Max's hair is extremely short, Clara was able to make her a bow with it. Well, either that or she used some extensions. 

Then it was her turn, she started straightening her hair and then she put a what-seemed-like a diadem, but was actually really simpler. It was made of really small diamonds, and it looked so awesome.

Then she put Lara's hair in a perfect bun and told me to sit again on the chair so she can help me with my makeup. 



Max's P.O.V

Clara’s such a girl! But she’s an artist. What she did with our hair was really great! And now she was helping Alex with her makeup and it was really, really good. It was simple, yet very effective. The eyeliner gave Alex's blue eyes such a beautiful look, so did the simple blue eye shadow. Her lipstick was very beautiful, a color that was between red and pink, and it looked so awesome with her dress. 

"Wow!" I said when she finished. "You look amazing, Alex!" 

"Thank you." She said smiling. 

"Come on, Max. Your turn." Clara said. 

"No, no, no. I'm not gonna put on makeup!"

But what can I say. Just as they got me to buy the dress, they got me to sit on that chair. It felt so strange, someone painting on my face some powdered stuff. Putting the mascara and eyeliner was really hard for me, because it was the first time for me to do such thing and I kept on blinking. Alex and Clara made it seem so easy, when actually it was not! 

So after that I looked at the mirror facing me, and my jaw fell open. 

"Who's that?!" I asked, really meaning it. My eye shadow was gold, the mascara and eyeliner were black, and the lipstick was red. And I loved how I looked so much!

"Oh my good god!" Alex said when she saw me. And I started laughing. 

Then Clara put really simple makeup, with a scarlet lipstick, looking great. 

Actually, we all looked stunning! But Alex and Clara were the best-looking of us, in my opinion. 

Now we were ready to go.
