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?


88. Permission





"Mom?!" Was how my daughter welcomed me. "What're you doing here."

"I'm glad to see you too." I said mocking. I knew she would be shocked to see me. I never mentioned coming to Hogwarts.

"That's not what I mean." And she hugged me. "How did you get here, and why? I-Is everything alright?" 

"Everything's fine no need to worry. I'm here with Ben, we have something in mind. Professor Dumbledore wanted you to be here while we explain the idea we have." I told her. 

"Well then let's go." She said knocking the office's door and later entering. She seemed familiar with the place, maybe she comes to his office often. 

"Ah, there they are." Professor Dumbledore said. Alex greeted Ben and then we started talking about our idea.

"So as I was saying, sir-" Ben started. "The muggles are going really crazy, they're so stressed and confused, they don't know how these innocent people are being murdered. I think it's better if we made a show on TV that would take their minds off of the news. They shouldn't really be thinking about those murders for long. There are some great muggle investigators and detectives, they might, I'm afraid, find out about the magical world. Of course it's just a possibility, but we should always assume the worst would happen to protect ourselves from what might happen.

"The TV show would be about merepeople. Now, of course you sir know that there are merepeople in the school's ground lake. I figured these creatures shouldn't be hidden for long. I mean, what's the point, denying they're alive wouldn't make them actually less alive. They're here, and even that there aren't many people who know about them, they do exist. Of course you might think we would be telling the muggles about something in our world- one of our world's magical creatures, but the plan is to make it seem both real and unreal. We wont tell about the place the filming was, so this way we'll have both believers who will admire the show and keep watching it, and also the unbelievers who will think these creatures aren't real but would like to watch the show because it shows something new, hopefully."

"I have to admit I really think it's a great idea, Mr. Roger. It would really help a lot. However, I can't help wondering why you came for me. Something like that should need the permission of the Ministry of Magic - well and the muggle's minister."

"Of course sir, we decided to ask them after we hear from you. After all, we're going to film some stuff here in the school's grounds, since the lake the merepeople live in is the one here at Hogwarts. Also, we were hoping you'd help us in the ministry, if you can." Professor Dumbledore nodded. I liked how Ben was super respectful with him, I could tell how much he respected him and he really deserved being respected. 

"That is something I can help with. I'll help you in the ministry if you need any help, and I can give you my word that filming here would be allowed." 

"That's indeed a good idea, Ben." Alex finally spoke. 

"Well then, that's it. We appreciate you're help sir, thank you very much." He smiled at that, "Now excuse us we need to go to the ministry." we turned to leave but then Alex said something,

"Oh and professor, I wanted to tell you that I've finished my apparition and Magic Basics classes. I thought you'd want to know that."

"Excellent, excellent. Since you're here, Ms Tonks I think it'd be nice to tell you how incredible your daughter is. Even that she's technically considered half a witch, she's better than most students. She's clever, and she's really hard-working. She's doing more effort than any student I have known, and believe me, I have known plenty." He smiled, pausing. "You should truly be proud of her." 

"I am." I said more proudly than ever, putting my arm around her shoulder. "My smart, witty daughter." I added to her. "You always make me proud." 









Right before mom and Ben left to go to the Ministry of Magic, I remembered that I have a Muggles Studies class to give. Ben had his laptop with him, in addition to the camera he carried, probably brought them for the filming, which gave me an idea.

"Hey Ben, can I borrow your laptop? You can get it when you come back from the Ministry of Magic, you sure will come back to tell me about their decision anyway, right?" 

"Yeah sure, take it." And he gave it to me.

"Why didn't you tell me earlier?" I asked mom.

"Well, it was kinda hard to explain in a letter, don't you think? And beside, this was top secret and I feared the letter might get into the wrong hands. We don't want many people to know about this until it happens, or at least until we start with it." I nodded.

"And where are you staying?" I asked. 

"Somewhere in Diagon Alley. Probably the leaky cauldron, there are rooms there." 

"Well, good luck with the ministry thing." I said smiling. 




I was excited to tell my students about computers. I knew they'd be amazed to see one. Technology, I think, is a lot like magic, and these people surely love magic. 

"So this thing over here, is called a computer - a laptop specifically. There are many shapes of computers, many sizes, many colors even for many uses. It's got something called the internet on it. Which is the most amazing thing you can find in the muggles world. 

By the internet, you can talk to people from all around the world, and all you'll have to do is press a button or two. It can give you whatever information you need and answer so many of your questions." I told them a lot about the internet and about the computer itself. Indeed, they were amazed. They were even jealous for not having such a thing "Well, you people have magic." I said laughing. 

"But still, this thing is as cool as magic." A guys said. 

"Oh believe me, magic is the coolest thing in the world."

These guys should spend three days in the muggles world. Three would be the most they can handle, if they could handle three days that is.

"Can you use it to know what the next task is?" Well, thanks a lot. By Laura's question I remembered that the next task's after only two days. 

"No." I said laughing a bit. "Nothing can!" That wasn't exactly true, the poison we got out of Aragog's fangs was supposed to give us a clue about the next task, but how exactly, I didn't manage to know. It wasn't until I sat with Kyle alone with professor Slughorn that day that we knew.
