Albus Potter and the Return of the Dark Lord

Albus Potter goes to Hogwarts. He founds out surprises that kept on happening. Albus wonders if he should just not go to Hogwarts. He just hated the pressure how he had to be as good as his father in everything. But then tragedy is happening at Hogwarts and no one but Albus and his father knows what's going on. What would Albus do?


30. The Million Galleon Race

McGonagall had been thinking about the event. The children's safety, the money, and many other things. But she ended up deciding that she would do the event. 

"Hello everyone, before we do the sorting, I have a big announcement." 

Everyone was staring at her, including the first years. 

"The announcement is that we will have a special event this year. It is called the Million Galleon Race." 

Everyone stared at each other and started whispering. 

What in the world was the Million Galleon Race? 

"The Million Galleon Race is very simple. One student from each house would be picked. But there would be seven students from each house that would play the Million Galleon Race." 

Everyone looked confused. 

"That means that from each year and each house, there would be one student. Get it? So in the first year, there would be one student from Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw. Can you guys understand now?" 

Everyone seemed to understand. They made an approving nod. 

"The Goblet of Fire would choose the chosen ones. After the sorting, the Goblet of Fire would decide." 

So the sorting started. After thirty minutes or so, the sorting was over. McGonagall congratulated the first years. 

Then, she snapped her fingers. 

The Goblet of Fire came into the room. 

McGonagall walked towards it. A piece of paper shot out. She caught it. 

"The first year Slytherin chosen one is Carter Mirage!" 

Carter Mirage walked to the front of the hall. He looked confused, nervous, and scared. 

The first year Ravenclaw chosen one was Helena Rowen, the Hufflepuff one was Marcus Rehi, and the Gryffindor one was Kylie Robertz. 

The second year Ravenclaw chosen one was Janie Waltz, the Slytherin chosen one was Hussey Jubi, and the Hufflepuff one was Joshua Rigory. 

Finally, it was the Gryffindor chosen one. Rose, Albus, Ally, and Eric were all very nervous. They might get picked. 

"The second year Gryffindor chosen one is Albus Potter!" 

Albus was shocked. Even though he was walking towards the front of the hall, his mind was still in his seat. 

After McGonagall announced everyone that were going to be in the race, all the students were dismissed except the chosen ones. 

McGonagall just gave them a roll of parchment after the students left. 

She said, "You can go now." 

When Albus was at the Gryffindor Common Room, he opened the roll of parchment. Ally and Eric were right next to him. Thy seemed interested in what was written on the parchment. 

It said: 

The race is very simple. But no magic is allowed in most of them. This race would prove to yourself how good you are without magic. The first mission would be three days from today. 

Good luck. 

Ally looked confused. Albus, himself, was confused, too. A race without magic? Why would that race be in Hogwarts? Hogwarts was a school full of magic. 

Eric said, "This race is weird." 

Albus and Ally nodded. 

Albus said, "But I have to do it, anyway. And it is three days from today." 

Ally said, "Good luck, Albus. At least they can't kill you." 

Eric said, "Knives, guns, all sorts of things can kill people without magic, Alicia." 

Ally glared at Eric. 

"Shut up, Eric! You know I hate it when people call me Alicia." 

Albus let them argue. He was worried. He had to talk to his dad. Who knows what Xavier can do? If they can't use magic during the races, it was quite obvious that their wands would be taken by the contest sponsors or the teachers. Xavier can kill them very easily. 

Albus remembered Xavier's hidden face. Maybe he'll let him go again if Albus gets caught. Very unlikely. Albus wished he was at home.
