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?


59. Decisions





I was sitting in the common room with Alex. Clara was sitting with us, but she was reading by the fireplace. No one else was in the room, which was kinda weird, but people've been being really busy this year. I guess it's because there are many things to do, other than sitting in the common room. Also, it's autumn so people sit outside a lot. Even we do, but it's a windy day, and I don't always like windy weather.

"So what did Remus say yesterday, about the whole being a werewolf idea?" Alex asked. Her tone made me feel like she already knew the answer, and she did too, I think, Remus didn't allow me to become a werewolf, and maybe he's right, but he didn't mind me being an animagus, he only told me about how dangerous it is. 

"I'm going to become animagus." I said smiling widely.

"Oh that's sad." She said absent-mindedly. "What, what?" She said giving me her attention suddenly. I noticed that I also got Clara's attention, for she closed the book she was reading and came to sit with us. 

"Yeah, well. He told me not to become a werewolf, he said that it's really crappy and everything, so I asked him about becoming animagus and he didn't really mind it." Clara looked at me, her mouth was still open. At first she started moving it, but no words came out, but then she said, 

"But Max it's dangerous! I mean, only a powerful, skilled witch or wizard can become animagus - I'm not saying you're not, but I'm just - not sure it'll be safe. And besides, you have to resign yourself to the ministry of magic, did you know that?"

"Yes but-"

"And are you ready for that? can you do it?" 

"Clara, it's not that bad, really. Look at the marauders, all of them are animagus, and I don't believe Peter Pettigrew's any more powerful than I am." Alex stood up. 

"Can you walk me to my Magic Basic's class? I don't want to miss this conversation, but I don't want to miss the class either." She said. 

"Or, you don't want to be late and make Sirius wait for you." I said. She just rolled her eyes, so finally Clara and I agreed to go with her. 

"So you want to do it anyway? Even if it's dangerous?" Alex asked. 

"Well, yes. I want to spend as much time as possible with Remus, and I want to help him like his friends do. That's what I want to do. You should know I really love him, guys, even that I believe you know it already." 

"Max, I know you both love each other, but .. Okay, I have to say it. We're supposed to be wise, being Ravenclaws and everything, right?" I nodded. "So I try to be wise sometimes, especially when it's about giving my opinion on someone else's decisions, and this is one of those times. Max, I know you love him, and I know he loves you too, but - relationships can get so complicated some times, I mean, people change and the unexpected can happen. What if this relationship didn't last?"

"It will last, and if it didn't I'll still have my animagus powers. I mean it's cool to be animagus even if it wasn't for Remus. But it will last."

"It is cool, but is it cool enough to make a risk for it?" Alex said. We were nearly there by now. 

"That's it, it's not just about it being a cool thing, it's about me helping Remus." 

"But he's already got the marauders and they're helping him." Clara said. 

"Okay, they're helping him, but I want to help him too." I said, my temper rising. I remembered something suddenly. "Alex, last night while I was trying to sleep you said that you wanted to tell me something. You said it had something to do with the slug club. What was it?" 

Alex started talking really fast, she told me about what Regulus said to her, I think Clara was half surprised. Maybe she didn't hear him saying it that day. I was shocked. Yes, Regulus can be such a jerk sometimes, but that was a strange, mean thing to say. It must've been a been a bit scary for Alex. It's a hard thing to hear from the brother of your boyfriend. I don't know if Alex ever planned to become a Black on day, but, she sure took her relationship with Sirius seriously. 







"That jerk!" Max said as I finished talking. We were finally there, but Sirius wasn't, which was good since I don't want him to hear about this. "I mean, who does he think he is, talking about your future and control it?"

"Who is controlling your future?" Sirius comes out of the room. WHAT?! I can't believe I was so stupid not to make sure that he wasn't in there. I just thought I'd find him waiting for me by the doorway, or that he'd come late. What did he hear? I believe he didn't really hear much, depending on his question. But that's not the worst part. I never told Max not to say anything in front of Sirius, and I couldn't really tell her now that Sirius was next to me, he will be able to tell. 

"You're brother of course. I just can't believe he said so." Max said. Oh Max, please stop, please stop. 

"What- wait, what did my brother say?" Sirius looked at me. Holy shit. 

"Nothing, he didn't say anything important, it was just a lame joke-"

"What? Of course it wasn't just a joke-"

"Max! I think it was a joke and-"

"Okay, okay. You're hiding something. What is it? Spit it out." Sirius said. I could feel his tense, I wonder if he could feel mine. 

"Regulus told Alex that she's never gonna be a Black." 

And that was that.
