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?


67. Regret and Goodbyes




Alex was packing. And crying. Well, basically she was crying more than she was packing but yeah, she was doing both. I knew she should've trusted Sirius, both of us knew he wouldn't have done such a thing, but she couldn't just ignore the devilish sound in her head that said, "What if?" 

"Come on Alex, please stop this." Clara, Lara and I were helping her with her packing. 

"Not only I'm leaving Hogwarts for a crime I didn't really commend, but also, I've lost the guy I love." She paused to sob. "I don't even know if I'll ever be able to see him again!"

I honestly didn't know what to tell her. That everything's gonna be okay? That she probably won't be spending the rest of her life, if not the two following months in Azkaban? That her mother won't be heartbroken? That Sirius will know how much she loved him and forgive her for being such a stupid misjudging girl? None of those were true, and how could I lie to her when she was weeping like this?

"You can ... talk to him, maybe." I suggested. 

"Yeah right. As if it would change anything if I did. God! I'm such a fool. I knew he didn't do it, but no, silly Alex had to make sure!" she sobbed some more. 

"Come on Alex, you really should stop! Don't let anything ruin the happy girl you are." Clara said. 

"Believe it or not Clara, happy Alex gets sad sometimes. She's human after all." She sighed. "Sorry, I know you're only trying to help. Is there anything left for me to take?" 

"Only the teddy bear and your family's picture." I said in a low voice. 

"Yeah." She wiped her tears. "I am so gonna miss you guys! Really." Each on of us hugged her, then we ended up having a big group hug, consisting of four crying girls. "At least the other champions will be happy now, to get rid of me." She laughed. 

"How can you cry and laugh at the same time?" I managed to smile.

"That's just one of the great talents I've got Miss Rosiel." We all laughed and then paused. We lay on our backs, facing the ceiling, each one of us was lost her in thoughts, it was Clara who finally spoke first.

"You won't forget us, will you?" She said in almost a whisper. 

"Never. I'll never forget you or anything here. None of it. I will remember it all as if it was still happening. It's not a forgettable thing, you know? Being half a witch will be a part of me with everything I do, which will remind me of you guys and our adventures, our nice lovely days, my very busy timetable, the marauders." She sighed. "But I heard someone saying once; don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. Maybe that's what I'm supposed to do now. Maybe I'm supposed to move on, with a smile on my face and the beautiful memories in my head. I should be thankful, really for learning about the magical world, and moreover being a part of it somehow. I should be thankful for having you and the others as my friends and having Sirius as my boyfriend at time. I should be thankful, yes." 

I love this girl. I really do. She really teaches me that making ourselves happy no matter what is the only way to run away from our misery. 

"Even as we fought he told me the sweetest things ever." Alex said in a small voice after what seed like an hour. "He told me that he loved me, and that if it were for him he would have given me all his powers and remained a worthless muggle. Of course he wouldn't have been worthless. No, not Sirius Black. He told me that he loved seeing me happy about being a witch, and that he wanted to often see me happy like that. He may not seem like this, be Sirius's got the loveliest and warmest heart."

A while after that we fell asleep on the floor.  







I woke up the other day with puffy eyes, salty cheeks and aching back. I thought about my mother, what will I tell her today? Like, "Hello mom, I was basically kicked out of the most amazing magic school by the minister of magic herself and that's because I stole some lad's magic powers and I called him my boyfriend but I was basically just using him." If it only were the truth. Good thing it isn't. It's not a big deal, professor Dumbledore must've told her already. 

Professor Dumbledore! That's exactly where I should go. I sat upright, got dressed so fast and went to professor Dumbledore's office. I knocked twice before I was told to enter. 

"Ah, Alex my dear." I managed to smile.

"Professor Dumbledore, um.. Sir, I wanted to ask you about something. Well, you must've known about the ministry's decision and you probably know that I didn't really do such thing, if you don't please do know this professor, I would never use Sirius, yet alone steal his magic, ever."

"I perfectly know this, believe me when I tell you this. Though I know the ministry of magic doesn't believe either of us. I know why you're here, and I won't let you leave my school without giving you this promise. I will do my best to return you to Hogwarts and guarantee your innocence. I'm not sure if my best will be enough, but well, at least I'd give it a try. You've become one of my students and I don't easily give up on my students like that, they're far more precious to me." 

"Thank you professor." I smiled politely.

"There's unhappiness Alex, behind your smile, and it doesn't have to do with leaving Hogwarts. Forgive me if I'm being too curious." That was awkward, I didn't really want to talk about my love life in front of professor Dumbledore, but well, what harm would it make? I couldn't fight the flush that filled my cheeks so suddenly as I spoke;

"Oh, it's nothing sir, it's just that - Sirius and I had a - a fight." 

"Ah, love. Most beautiful and yet painful thing on earth. You know Alex, love is just like a rose, it looks really lovely, it smells great too, but if you didn't know how to hold it, its thrones may cause you harm that may hurt you badly." I love professor Dumbledore's wisdom. I wonder if I'll ever be as wise as he is. Maybe as a grown up - or maybe not. 

"Thank you professor, for telling me this." He smiled.

"Now remember, if things didn't really turn out as good as we hope, you can always write everyone at Hogwarts, including me letters, you'll still be my student. I would appreciate you telling me about anything unusual that may happen with you, or if you simply had any other questions about the magical world, I would be happy to answer them."

"Thank you professor, I really appreciate this." 

After thinking, going to professor Dumbledore's office may be the best thing I did after fighting with Sirius. Well, at least I've done something good. 







By breakfast time, Alex entered the Great Hall with Max, Clara and Lara. She looked sad, but not as sad as I expected her to be, which is good. I went to her and gave her a hug. Sirius told me about what happened with her yesterday. He was really furious about it, and I felt bad for him, but felt bad for her as well. Both of them were victims in the crime of life. 

"Don't worry, I'll be leaving soon too." I said. She giggled. 

"Promise me you'll be the triwizard champion." 

"I will if you promise me to paint the sky green." She laughed. 

"I'm gonna miss you - again. God, we haven't even met yet and I'm leaving again, I thought we'd spend so much time together at Hogwarts." She sighed. "Yeah well, enough of the grumpy me. Enjoy every moment at Hogwarts, Kyle." 

"I doubt I will without you, honestly, but well, okay." 

"You'll manage to survive, I did." 

"yeah, but you're a heartless best friend, I'm not." I mocked and we both laughed. "You'll talk to him?" I asked nodding towards Sirius who gave his back to the Ravenclaw's table on purpose. 

"I don't know. God, I spoiled everything. I must. I should at least say goodbye, I'll be leaving soon anyway, like, too soon, in about an hour." I nodded. 

"Good luck then."
