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?


107. Confessions





Kyle's little sister's so cute, she's funny like him too. His parents are amazing as well, he told me they liked me a lot. I hope they did, really. Jasmine seems like a nice girl, I don't know how to feel about her, though. I mean, will there always be a part of me that hates her?  Kyle just told me that he wants to give me something, so I'm waiting for him alone in the living room. Everyone else is in their rooms.  "Finally." I said laughing when Kyle came. I brought my present for him with me. I knitted him a dark blue cardigan, I hope he likes it. "I want you to open yours first." He smiled, taking the present and unwrapping it fast. 

"Did you knit this yourself?" He asked, surprised. I nodded. "Clara I love it! Thank you." He kissed my cheek. "Your time." He said putting the present in my hand. I wasn't sure what to expect. I opened it gently and found three books. "You do know me too well." I said. Books are the best present I can ever get, in whatever occasion, whenever.     







The next morning, I went to Alex and asked her for a favor. Clara was still sleeping, but I couldn't risk asking Alex in their room, I called her to mine.  "Can you take Clara out for a girls-day?" I asked her. 

"I thought you couldn't wait to see her, now you want to get rid of her?" She asked, puzzled. 

"It's not like that, it's just that-"

"Wait a second. Is this about Jasmine?" She said her name in almost a whisper. I shook my head. 

"No, I mean, yes, but no." She looked at me shocked. "Look, Jasmine told me that she wanted to talk to me, and it's not about the two of us being more than friends because we both don't want that."

"Are you sure about that, Kyle? Because I can tell she was envious when she saw Clara and you together." 

"Alex. I'm sure. Look, I don't know what feelings she has for me, but the thing we're going to talk about isn't about that." 

"Well then what is it about?" She asked. "What? You're keeping that a secret too?"

"I honestly don't know." It could be about you, though. She said she could barely breathe when she saw you. 

"Alright, I will. But you'll tell me about everything, you hear me?" 

"Yes, ma'am. I said saluting her."   She laughed a bit.  




I told Jasmine that I'll go to her house, that we'll meet there.  She greeted me with a big smile, but it faded almost instantly. Apparently, we were alone in the house. We sat in the living room. 

"So you said you wanted to talk." I started awkwardly. 

"Yeah." She said. "But listen, Kyle. I'm telling you because you're important to me and you deserve to know it. Also, because I owe you an explanation." She took a breath. "Voldemort's behind me and my sister, Katy. You know, Katy Martin, who competed in the triwizard championship. She's my sister." 

"What?!" I asked, absolutely shocked and disgusted. 

"Please listen to me Kyle. Ruby isn't the only Squib in Cambridge, I'm a squib as well. My parents sent me to live in the USA so that I wouldn't have to deal with the whole drama, they decided it would be better if I grew up as a muggle in another country. The wizards here won't know I'm a squib, everyone will think I'm just a muggle - which is almost the same, actually. Anyway, I was supposed to stay with my uncle, and I did grow up with him, but after I became eleven years old, he died. His wife and I were left to live alone in his house. I never truly liked her, but she kind of got better just a bit after he passed away. I stopped meeting my parents ever since, but as much as I miss them, I can't forgive them for what they did to me. You know, sometimes it feels like they didn't do it for me, like they did it out of shame of me for being a squib. 

"Katy and I always tried to be close, we only communicate through letters of course, we rarely meet, but whenever we do, she tells me about every new thing in the magical world. She once told me about Voldemort and how she should join him. She said he's after muggles and possibly squibs too, she said she'd be protecting me if she joined him, she also said that he's not that strong now, but he'll soon be very strong and dangerous. Katy is kind of a Deatheater, she's just a beginner and she's doing this for me, well she was. Now Voldemort's threatening her and me both. Personally, I don't think I'm that scared of him, I mean of course I am but.. not as much as I used to. But not Katy, Katy's became like a slave to him now, she has to do whatever he asks her to do or we'll both die. 

"Look, I don't know if you know that or not Kyle, but Katy was trying to kill Alex. What I also suspect, is that she also tried to kill you."

"Why would she do that?" 

"Because Voldemort told her to. Voldemort hates muggles and muggle-borns, but Alex is another thing. For him, Alex is a muggle who lives in the magical world. He really hates her. When Katy was assigned with this mission, she said that she needed my help, and that if I don't help her, Voldemrot will kill us both. I had to get close to you, since you're Alex's friend, I had to tell her about everything you told me about her, and I also had to get us both to go to Hogwarts. This way both of us will be able to watch Alex closely and... and sending her to Voldemort will be easier. Then I discovered that Voldemort didn't only want Alex dead, he wanted her to get killed by Ruby. 

"Even that going to Hogwarts has always been a dream of mine, as well a mission that I had to do, I couldn't do it, I simply wasn't good enough for it. So after I failed, Katy had to continue alone. Voldemort kept telling her to do all the horrible stuff to Alex, she even got into the triwizard tournament only to kill her. She kept on cheating during the tournament, all she did was cheating, because she had to win. If she won, she'd be able to kill Alex a lot easier, she wanted to kill her in the tournament itself. With each step she took, Katy sent me a letter. I told her that I don't want to be a part of this a long time ago though, Kyle. Because in the process of getting close to you, I - well I fell for you, and my mission got a lot harder than I expected. 

"Katy's a weak girl. She really was your and Alex's friend last year, but she had to do what she did. I know you wont be able to ever forgive her and me, because I don't even know if I'll ever forgive her and myself." She was by now crying. "But I'd really appreciate it if you did. Because I've changed, I don't want to do this anymore. I want both of you to be safe, and if I didn't want that, I wouldn't have got Alex's mother to go to her." Through sobs she said, "I'm so sorry Kyle. I truly am." 

I just sat there, unable to say anything. I was shocked. I really was, but I wasn't sure whether to be mad at Jasmine or not. I was full of mixed emotions and I couldn't decide what to do, and how to feel. 

"Well say something." She said crying. What to say? 

"Now what will happen of Katy?" I asked. 

"I don't know. I'm so scared for her. I mean, no matter what, she's still my sister, I guess I'll always be scared for her." She paused. "C-can you ever forgive me?" 

"I don't.. I don't know Jasmine. I think Alex's the one who should forgive you." 

"I know, but you should forgive me too. I don't know if I can tell Alex. Kyle, I can't. I really can't." 

"Then I'll tell her." She just continued to cry. I sighed. "I'm sorry for what your parents did to you, Jasmine. And I think you did the right thing by trying to help Alex and stop the mission, it was brave of you, really. But I don't think I'll be able to forgive you for what you did, not unless Alex does at least." 







After Clara and I went back home, I asked Kyle privately about what Jasmine told him. He was really lost in thought the whole time, he wasn't being himself at all, I could tell something bothered him, and so could Clara. At last, he decided to tell us both together. 

Kyle told us about what happened with Jasmine, leaving out the part that he told me to get out with Clara so that he'd ask her about what she wanted to tell him.  

He kept on talking for ages, and I was more shocked than mad by hearing the truth. Then I could feel what Kyle was feeling a moment before he told us about this, confused. The three of us remained silent for a while

"And I was mad at her because she kissed you." Clara said. 

"This girl and her sister were .. they were trying to kill me. I mean, of course I knew Katy was, but it never even crossed my mind that Jasmine who was Kyle's friend might be my murderer's sister and is helping her with the crime!"

"Look, I know you're mad at her, and you should be, but I've been trying to think of things in a different way." Kyle said. "Trust me, I'm not on her side, but it's just that .. I think she was kind of forced to do what she did, and it's not like she was going to kill you herself. I know that helping with it is almost the same thing, but in the middle of the process she decided to stop doing it-"

"Yes. because she fell in love with you, not because she's a good person who doesn't want me dead!"

"Then why did she bring your mother to you?" I asked. 

"Because she was feeling guilty for what she did." Clara said. "Bad people don't feel guilty."

"Look, I know she felt bad for doing what she did, but she almost killed me, and I can't forgive her for that." Alex said.
