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?


43. Getting to Know You





"Well the whole point of this is basically getting to know each other a bit more, because I believe that the connection between a person and their teacher should be really good. I know that I'll only be teaching you one subject, but I wanna do it perfectly." I smiled. They were listening and I was enjoying it, really. "So, I have fifteen boxes here, I put  some pieces of paper on all of your desks, now you'll put a paper slip in the box that you can relate to. I'll read what each box says and you can start putting your papers now;

1) I like reading. 2) I get scared a lot. 3) I'm really honest. 4) I can survive one day without using magic. 5) I can knit, play a musical instrument or make dishes without the need of magic. 6) I enjoy singing. 7) I do know what a computer is. 8) I can speak parseltongue. 9) I have a twin. 10) I'm in a relationship with someone in this room. 9) I hate muggles. 10) I know how to deal with muggles' money. 11) I love dragons. 12) I wish I was a muggle sometimes. 13) I hate Alex Cross."

The classroom went insane, everyone was laughing and walking to the boxes putting the papers in them. I could tell they were enjoying it, and I loved it. 

"Okay now, would you please get quiet so that I'll see how many papers there are in each box?" It took them a while, but eventually they got quiet. "I'll play this with you guys. Alright, let's see. Only ten people like reading, and I bet they're all Ravenclaws." That caused them to laugh. "Well, I love reading so I'll just add another paper there. Now, twenty people get scared a lot. So I'm not the only one here! The 'I'm really honest' box," I paused to laugh as I counted the numbers of the paper slips in that box. "Really? Only seven could relate to this? Well they'd better be honest then. I can relate to that, honestly, so I'll just add one for myself. "Only four people can survive a day without using magic, that's getting interesting. We'll get over this, you know? Well, apparently I can relate to that too, it looks like I can relate to most of the boxes. Let's see, fifteen people can either knit, play a musical instrument or make dishes without using magic. Well, that's impressive! And sure I can relate to that too.Twenty people enjoy singing, wow! Well, I do enjoy singing myself too, but I don't really have the best voice, it's horrible really, you won't want me singing if you care about your life." I laughed joined by some students, including Sirius and the marauders. "I sing in the shower though, and that's how I want it to stay. So yes I can relate to this box, because it's about enjoying the singing and not actually being able to sing. Only five people know what a computer is?! Oh my God, you people really need to learn what a computer is, and you really need to get this class. Well, of course I know what a computer is, so I'll add a paper to this one. No one in this class can speak parsletongue. Well, either that or they're too shy to tell. Well I used to speak parseltongue as a muggle but I dunno why I just couldn't do it anymore once I became half a witch." It looked like Sirius was really enjoying the class, laughing at every joke I made, no matter how lame it was. "No, sure I'm not parslemouth either. Hmm, four people here have twins. That's interesting, can I know who these people are?" Lara, Clara and other two, a boy and a girl raised their hands. "Oh I see the similarities between the two of you." I said to the boy and the girl. "As for Lara and Clara, well I can't tell you apart and it's not really important." I joked. It's a good thing they share my dorm. I suspect I would've got the ability to tell them apart if they didn't. "Personally, I don't have a twin, so I can't relate to this. Thirteen people are in a relationship with someone in the room! Damn.It's bad, you know? Okay I'll just say this, please don't snog in my class." Everyone laughed. "Okay, let's see how many people hate muggles." 

"Wait you didn't answer that one." Someone said. Everyone oohed and I believe I blushed. 

"What? I thought it was obvious. Alright I do relate to that too." Yeah, they oohed again. "Now let's see how many people hate muggles. Oh that's good, only ten people do. Why do you hate them people?" I said laughing. "Seriously, they're really normal. Or is it because they're normal and boring?" 

"Well that's one thing. Besides that they're really dumb." A Slytherin boy answered. 

"Well, I'll have to admit some of them can be really dumb sometimes, but does that make you hate them? Well let's just hope that you'll all know  by the end of this year, what muggles suffer from and what advantages they have, and then, that you'll stop hating them." I smiled and continued. "Well, I don't really hate myself, thank you very much, so I can't really relate to that one. Only three people can deal with the muggles' money, can I ask who they are?" The three kids rose their hands. "Umm, can everyone just say their name once they answer, because I don't honestly know all of your names."

"I'm Sidney. I know it because I have a muggle father and he's told me all about their money." One said. 

"Peter, well I'm just interested in any kind of money in the world, so I thought I'd learn about the muggles' money." The other said. And the third one's answer was, "Why wouldn't I?" He didn't even tell me his name, but I didn't really take it that bad. 

"Well, seriously, why wouldn't you? We'll learn how to use muggles' money, don't worry for those who don't know. Well, I can relate to this obviously. Twenty five people love dragons. Well, who doesn't! Dragons are one of the best magical beasts I've learned about, and I'm sad I never got to see one myself, although I'm not sure how my reaction would be like if I did see one. I do relate to that. Six people wish they were muggles sometimes, honestly people, why would you? I mean, wizards' lives are much, much easier and more interesting. Anyway, we'll see if that changes by the end of this year, it's a really interesting thing to know. Well, since I can be considered as both a muggle and a witch, I find the wizarding world better than the muggles' one, and I wouldn't really wish to be just a muggle again, ever. And I don't really need to see how many people've put paper slips in the last box, because I know there will be none." I joked. 

"Well I put one." Sirius said. 

"Alright, then it's one. Anyway, ignore Sirius Black. That's it for today, next time we'll start learning how to become a muggle, so I think it'll be fun for most of you. Thank you all, I really enjoyed the class." 

While everyone started leaving I went to Sirius. 

"As for you.. I can take from your House's points and get you in detention, you know that?" I asked challenging him. 

"So you're being the teacher now? Look, I don't kiss my teachers just want you to know that from the beginning, because I can see how much you want that in the way you look at me." 

"Well, too bad, that's not really right. I think I've made myself really clear during the class, I'm in a relationship with someone in the room." He looked around. 

"Wait, is he still here?" 

"Shut up." I whispered. And he finally kissed me.
