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?

24. Flying

Alex's P.O.V

 

 

It's Saturday and I have classes. Yeah, that's how full my table table is. Actually I have five classes today; Potions, Ancient Runes, Herbology, Flying and Muggles Studies. And in my free time, I want to go with Max to the Quidditch team picking. I promised her I would. 

I've already had the Potions, Ancient Runes and Herbology. I just have two more classes. And it's really great, because I'm like, super in Muggles Studies. I'm not sure about the flying class. What will I do in it? Can I fly now that I'm half a witch? But no, I'm not sure I can. 

Nevertheless, I went to my common room and got my flying stuff. We were supposed to get some sort of a helmet, made just for flying training, and some protection for my knees and elbows. I also brought my broomstick. Never thought it would be helpful. Not even sure if it ever will be. Maybe I shouldn't have bought it. I went to the Quidditch pitch, because it was where the flying classes were held now. 

Madam Hooch was there, with the first years students. Yeah, I was sharing this class with them, because older students supposedly know how to fly. 

"Cross, you're finally here. Okay, now we can start the class." Madam Hooch said. I didn't know I was late. "So, before we start the whole flying stuff, you should start with-"

"Up!" I said. Madam Hooch looked at me. 

"Yes, you're right, miss Cross." I grinned confidently. Some of the first years students looked at me admirably. Some of them've been looking at me this way from the moment I came here. It's getting weird, really. 

"So, everyone. You should try the "up" Part. Say up." 

"Up." Everyone went. I looked at my broomstick, as if I was challenging it. I really wanted to do this. So bad. Flying is one of the most amazing things of being a witch or a wizard, and I'm not sure if the magic I have within me is strong enough to learn flying or not, but I'm hoping.

"Up." I whispered. Nothing happened. "Up." I said louder. I looked at the other students and saw that two of them have already succeeded. "Up! UP!" I was basically shouting. "GET UP YOU STUPID BROOMSTICK!" Suddenly everyone fell silent. Madam Hooch was staring at me, her eyebrows crossed. 

"Ten points from Ravenclaw." She finally said. My face felt hot, and I was almost sure it got red. I was embarrassed in front of first year students! 

I looked at the broomstick once again. Please, I begged mentally. Just please, go up. "Up." I said. Nothing. Maybe I won't be able to fly after all. I gave up and sat on the grassy ground. 

"psst! Hey beautiful." I looked behind me and found Sirius there. I instantly stood up.

"Sirius what are you doing here?" 

"Umm, Max told me that you're having your first flying class." He said rubbing the back of his neck. 

"Well, I think it's gonna be the last one too. I can't even do the "Up" part when half of the class can. And I'm at least twice older and bigger than them." 

"Oh relax. Just, listen. You can do this, okay? I think you can fly. You're gonna have to, I mean, it's some of my magic powers that you got and I'm pretty sure I'm really good at flying." He said laughing. his chest was the closest thing to me, so I hit it gently. "No but really, you can do this. Trust me." He said. He was so close, and his words were so warm that I needed more of them. Or maybe his words were not what I needed, maybe just a hug, or a kiss. 

I begged him for it with my eyes, and as if he could read what my eyes held, he slowly bent closer and gave me a kiss. It wasn't as long as I wanted it to be, and he left me wanting for more, but I didn't ask for more. I heard a little girl saying, 

"Awwh." and another boy saying.

"Gross." So Sirius and I just laughed. Madam Hooch was luckily busy not looking at us. 

"Now go before she notices you." I said.

"No, I want to see you flying. I think it's okay." How stubborn he was, when it came to spending time with me. And I loved that, I really loved that. 

So, smiling, I looked at the broomstick on the grassy ground. Come one now. "Up." I said, not so gentle, but not so strong either. Again, there was nothing. "Up!" I said now strongly. The broom flew into my hand, like it was made of metal and my hand was a magnet. I couldn't believe it! My eyes were open. "I did it!" I nearly shouted. "Madam Hooch, I did it!" 

"Great!" She said, surprisingly meaning it. "Then I can really welcome you now. You're officially a witch. You can fly, you just have to learn how to." 

She then started giving us some simple tips on how to fly and how to balance, we weren't supposed to fly this time. We just wanted to do the balancing part. But after the class was over and all of the first years' were away, madam Hooch stayed with me. I knew how to ride a broomstick, because I've already done it a couple of times with Sirius. Although he had the control on the broomstick then, not I. Now I could ride it by my own, and I was an inch flying from the ground. "Oh my god." I breathed. 

"Good, Cross. Now try to get higher. Remember what I told you minutes ago, just point your broomstick to the sky -not that high." She said looking at the way I was holding my broom. I lowered it a bit. "Yes, exactly. Now, control the broom. Let it be yours." And indeed I started doing what she said. Slowly at first -but then shockingly a bit fast- the broomstick moved. To the place I wanted it to go to. To the direction I directed it to go in. And it felt so awesome! I kept on going upwards. I wanted to see how my skills were, and I really trusted them now. I felt secured, because I learned how to balance perfectly and I also learned how to control the broomstick almost perfectly now. And I wasn't even supposed to, in this class, it would be reckless. So my powers must be good! Really. 

Up I went. I enjoyed the sensation of the wind brushing my skin. I laughed at how amazing this was. up, and up and then I suddenly stopped. 

What happened? It's like there's a wall in the sky. I opened my arm and felt nothing solid there. There was nothing actually. But it felt like the sky was limited. I never wanted the sky to be limited. Could there possibly be a specific height that my broomstick can reach, and then that's it? I looked down, and it wasn't a wise idea. The ground was really far. Not as far as the time I flew with Sirius, but it was still far. My courage was okay, so I decided to continue and enjoy flying. I didn't go upwards now. I flew in straight lines and then in circles. I couldn't believe it really.

Then I remembered two things; one, is that Sirius was watching me as I tried to fly, and would probably be waiting for me. And two, is that I promised Max to come with here, right here, and right now. So the Quidditch players must be here soon. I tried not to be too fast as  I went down, but I wasn't as slow as I wanted myself to be. 

I found Sirius there, looking relieved. 

"Pfft! Here you are! I got worried." I jumped from my broomstick and ran to him hugging him tightly.

"Oh Sirius, it was so amazing!" I said. I then felt my feet leave the ground, and he started spinning me. I was laughing so hard. "Sirius!" I called. Until he finally got all dizzy and we both fell on the ground. Laying next to each other. My breathing was fast, and I started looking at the sky after a moment of staring at Sirius. I looked at Sirius again. "I love you Sirius."
