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?

112. Hope and Forgiveness

 

Alex 

 

 

 

I sent Kyle a letter telling him about the terrible incident that happened. The Marauders said it must be Voldemort who killed her, that she probably didn't do what she was told or got him mad or something that he killed her. 

I can't imagine what a horrible person he is. He's a total psycho. And he wants me dead, that's really cool ... 

I have never been so scared of someone before, now that I saw how real this is. I mean, I almost died myself, and now Katy's dead. 

We went to the funeral yesterday, nearly everyone from school did. I saw people pointing at me and whispering things like, "I bet she killed her." and "she pinned her to the door, I'm sure of this." some even claimed they saw me doing this. I tried to ignore that all, because it would be no use telling these people I didn't do it. 

I was very surprised to find Jasmine there, she had an eulogy for her sister, I'm not sure if she wrote and memorized it or improvised it, but it was really touching. She stood in front of her parents and said; 

"What can I say about Katy?" The sad, poor girl was shaking during the whole thing. "Katy was like a sister to me, she has always been so kind with me. I've known her since I was just a little child." And with that she turned to her parents and smiled. "But.. well, I moved to the USA when I was younger and we could only communicate through letters. We met a few times, but they weren't many." So she's still keeping being Katy's sister a secret. 

"She used to share everything with me" Even a last name, I wanted to say. I couldn't say anything though, I felt too bad for her. "She helped me with everything, starting with the way to get boys to like you and look good to the way to live when you're all alone. I helped her too, but it was mostly her who helped me. Katy did many mistakes, I'm not gonna lie to you and say she was an angel, but she's just a person, and people do mistakes." She cried while saying this. "All she did was to protect herself, she was forced to do everything bad she did. It might not explain what she did, but.. well I know that she's sorry now for what she did, she's sorry for every bad thing she did. She's sorry for being terrible with the muggles who weren't from Slytherin last year, she's sorry for stealing an apple from the neighbor's tree, she's sorry for embarrassing the red head in her class, and she's sorry for what she did to Alex and her friends." Everyone looked at me as she said that, all I did was stare at her as she continued talking. "She's sorry.. for everything. She's a good girl, who's done bad things. And I hope she rests in peace.

"Oh and one more thing." Jasmine said lastly. "Alex didn't cause Katy any harm and whoever's saying she did anything bad to her is a liar. She didn't do it, and I swear on my life. In fact, we should all thank Alex and Regulus for unpinning Katy's body from the door when everyone else stood watching."  

I went to Jasmine after that and hugged her. I told her that I'm sorry for what happened to her sister, that no one deserves that. I also told her that I knew Katy was a good girl, I was her friend myself, but I also know that she changed. I asked her, "How can you be so certain about me not doing that to Katy?" And she said; "In these past days I got to know you more and more, and I know that you would never, ever do such thing - not to Katy, not to anyone."

I told her that I forgive her, because I do. I couldn't tell her anything bad, her sister was dead, she was all alone, but also.. I couldn't be mad at her for ever. I know she helped with almost killing me, but I can feel how terrible she feels about it, and besides, she did the most amazing thing to me, so why should I be so mean?

Katy changed to be a bad person, and I'm not a bad person like her, I don't want to be like her. Katy wouldn't have forgiven me if I tried to kill her, or even helped with it, so I decided to forgive her and Jasmine, because Jasmine changed into a good person, and because I don't want to be a bad person.  

 

 

Jasmine 

 

 

 

I heard mutters of my parents before walking out of the house they were saying things like; 

"I'll still have a child." and "Even if she's not a witch."

I started walking faster before hearing the voice of my so-called mother calling my name. I turned to her, not saying anything. 

"J-Jasmine.. Would you like to stay here and live with us? Um, you've been away for so long, now surely you miss us?" I actually let out a laugh. Then I laughed some more. She thought that was a good sign, for she was smiling, but her smile faded the moment I spoke. 

"You actually think I'm that desperate?" I asked. "You think it's okay for you to do that? Switch a girl with another? You think I can take Katy's place now that she's dead? You need me now, now that you don't have a daughter? Well guess what? You don't have a daughter anymore, and unless by some miracle you give birth to some other girl, you never will! You never will be a mother, or a father." I said turning to my father. They both seemed to be quite shocked, for they didn't speak a word. No one was in the room besides Regulus and the three of us. "You think I'll want you now.. After you abandoned me? Well.. if you do, then you're wrong. Because I hate you. I used to miss you before, but not anymore. Now I hate you! You hear me? I hate you and I don't want to ever see you again." I paused. "Katy loved you, but I don't." I ran out of the house, followed by Regulus soon. I cried on his shoulder before transporting through the portkey back to Diagon Alley.

I thanked Regulus a lot, I told him that I'll never forget what he did to me, even that I was basically a stranger to him. He told me not to mention it. 

Then I went back to the USA, where my home is. Whether I liked it before or not, this is my home, and believe me.. I like it now more than ever. I'd live here forever rather than live with my parents. 

What made my day, though, was a knock on the door. As I opened it, I found Kyle standing awkwardly before hugging me. 

"I heard about Katy." He said. "And I'm sorry." 

"Thank you." I said inviting him in. 

I think .. I'm not truly alone. When life got utterly dark, hope held up a torch.
