A Magical Year (Magical trilogy book #2)

*Complete* 1976 ... Last year, Alex and Kyle visited Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with their school. They're best friends, and more like a brother and sister. Hogwarts was not the kind of school they expected to ever visit, since it taught REAL magic. And they never expected to meet such people there, people who they'd love.
Because of this love, Alex got the ability to make some simple spells; a talent that it so rare that it's nearly impossible. Now what'll happen when Alex turns from a muggle to a part-witch? And what will the Ministry of Magic decide to do about her?


72. Back to Hogwarts





I opened my eyes the other day and found myself wrapped in mum's arms. It was now that I realized how much I missed her at Hogwarts, and how much I'll miss her again now that I'm going back there. Finally, I'm going back to Hogwarts. Honestly, I lost hope in going there for a while, but after yesterday's trial all of my hopes were reborn. 

I am going back to Hogwarts. Today. 

I unwrapped mom's arm from around me and went out of bed. Because I'm not in the USA it's easier for me to go to Hogwarts. It's not that far really. 

I had many thoughts in my head. I thought about Sirius most of the time though. Was he telling his real opinion or was he really under the imperious curse? I just can't sort it out. After a while of thinking, I decided to think good of him. Sirius wouldn't have left me to go to court alone, and he wouldn't have got me to lose a case I was innocent of committing. Sirius would have come with me and fought everyone else for me. That was before we broke up though. 

I remembered then that my last fight with him was about trust. I should have trusted him, and I should trust him now. Sirius was under the imperious curse. I trust the house elf for that, and I trust my Sirius for that. 

He's not your Sirius anymore, I reminded myself once again. 




I stood by the Entrance Hall's huge doors, they were open, for it was daytime. I had my suitcases in my hands, and a goofy smile on my face. 

Mum was really emotional by the time we said goodbye again. Not quite as emotional as she was the first time I left though. That makes an improvement. 

I went to professor Dumbledore's office first, for it felt like the right thing to do. As I knocked and got in, professor Dumbledore welcomed me with real pleasure. 

"Good morning professor. Since I was allowed to go back to Hogwarts by the ministry of magic, I thought I'd come as soon as possible, which is now, and take your permission to - er, come back to Hogwarts." 

"Of course! It's best that you did so. You should also know that you'll always be welcomed here at Hogwarts, for it's you own place, and no one should need a permission to visit their place, now should they?" 

"No. Thanks professor." He smiled. 

"Now, you should probably say hello to the friends you left behind for a week, they were quite sad for your parting." I nodded and went out of his office. 

I wasn't sure where to go. I needed to see Kyle and the marauders and I also needed to see my girls; Max, Clara and Lara. I decided to go to my common room first. 

Once I entered the room, everyone called my name at once, it felt amazing, really, to know that I had more friends and people who care about me and love me than expected. The girls weren't there. I started hugging almost everyone. 

All I heard were questions and questions. Apparently, some people know about my trial. Some people think I - died, some think I ran away and some had really awful and strange rumors. Not everyone was friendly, though. Some thought I deserved to be punished, that I was really guilty even if I turned innocent, but they weren't much. I remembered professor Dumbledore's words when he told me that I have more enemies than the other kids. Well, there are always haters. 

I answered some of their questioned and then apologized to the ones I didn't answer, telling them I needed to see my best friends. As I entered the dormitory, I heard someone shouting my name. It was Max. She somehow, managed to jump on me and wrap her legs around me. 

"Max! You're too heavy!" I said laughing, and I almost dropped her, but she instantly jumped off of me. Clara and Lara both came to hug me then, so excited and happy to see me. 

"Tell us about everything!" Clara said I sat on the bed, finally. 

And about everything I told them. I told them about my mother and Ben, I told them about the trail, I told them about professor Dumbledore's help for me, I told them about Sirius's fake betrayal, I told them about the house elf and the imperious curse, and finally, I told them about the investigator's decision. 

"Oh my God." That was Lara. "So, he did that because he was under the imperious curse?"

"Yup." I said laying to rest a bit. 

"And how do you feel about that?" Asked Clara.

"I'm not sure." I answered honestly. "I - I think Sirius would've never done that if he wasn't under the imperious curse." 

"Oh no he wouldn't." Max said. We sat there for a while, and then Lara and Clara suddenly realized they were almost late for Herbology. My mind was too busy thinking about all of the things that's been happening the previous week that I almost forgot I had many classes to go to. Today's Wednesday, I thought remembering. I have Charms, History of Magic, Herbology, Potions, Quidditch training, Alchemi and I have a Magic Basics class - with Sirius. How am I going to take his classes now? It would all be too awkward for both of us. 

I had so many other things to think of as well. I had my classes, Quidditch, apparating (I've l almost mastered this one at least) and the tournament to worry about.

There was no one else in the room now but Max. I was getting my Charms' books out of my trunk when she spoke again. 

"He still loves you, you know?" She said. 

"Who?" I asked knowing the answer. 

"Oh don't act dumb. Sirius. He still loves you. You should've seen how miserable he was last week. He acted almost normally, but he was deeply sad. I could see it in his eyes." I wasn't sure what to say. 

"Yeah well, I still love him too." I answered. "But guess what? It's over. It's too late now." Max and I both sighed. 

"I don't know." She said. "Have you thought of talking to him?" 

"I have thought of doing it, but I'm not sure I will."









By entering the Great Hall for lunch, I was quite surprised to see Alex coming towards the boys and me. I heard she won the case, but I never thought she'd come to Hogwarts this morning.

If anything, I was completely thrilled to see her again. Just seeing her made my day, I really missed her. Of course, I can't really tell her about that now, but I can't simply deny it. She hugged Kyle first who was so happy to see her. 

I watched him as he hugged her tightly, as his hand found its way to her head and touched her hair and as he kissed her on the cheek. 

It can't be jealousy that I felt, right? Am I getting jealous of her best friend? And besides, I'm not even her boyfriend anymore so I'm not really supposed to get jealous at all. It's just that, I really miss holding her. I miss her smell, her eyes, her smile. I miss her blond hair and funny laugh, I miss her voice and our kisses. I miss everything about her ... about us. I need to talk to her, I know I do, but saying it out loud was harder than I expected. 

She hugged Prongs, Moony and Wormtail next then she turned to me. Her smiled vanished and everything was all awkward suddenly. I cleared my throat and said, "Welcome back." Then I offered her a hug whispering, "We're still friends, Alex." And she smiled. "We - we need to talk, I need to tell you something. Would you mind that?" 

"Not at all."
