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?


81. Scars





After the task, I was taken to the hospital wing. Actually, the two of us were taken there; Ragnar and I.  Kyle and Katy weren't so I think they did better than us; either that, or they were only not attacked by the spider. I wonder if we all had to face the same spider. I kind of hope we did, actually, because having one of those creatures is bad enough. 

After sitting on one of the beds for a while, I passed out and the next thing was that I woke up and found my forehead wrapped with bandages, and when I pulled my shirt up, I found a big scar and some blue bruises. Wow, this creature did hurt me.

That wasn't the only thing I found though. At the end of my bed, I found Kyle, Sirius and Max. They weren't looking at me, but then Sirius looked my way and found me awake. 

"Hey, you're awake. Good morning." He said gently and then came and kissed my cheek. 

"How're you feeling?" Max asked. 

"Okay, I guess. What happened yesterday?" 

"You mean, after you fought that huge spider? You were taken to the hospital wing and then-"

"I mean what happened with the task? Who won it?" Now Kyle answered, 

"Katy came first, I came second-"

"Wait, you came second? Congratulations!" I was really happy for him. 

"Thanks." He said grinning. "you came third and-" He looked at Ragnar who was sleeping, two beds away from me. "Ragnar last." 

"Strange, I thought Ragnar was good." 

"Well, he was, but you guys were better than him." Sirius said. 

"What time is it?" I asked. The sunlight said afternoon.


"Woah." I sat up. "Can I get out of the wing?"  They weren't sure at first. 

"I think so, yeah." Max finally said. "I mean, why not, you're not really tired are you?" 





After asking Madam Pomfrey if I can leave the wing and she said yes and took the bandages off, I realized that I missed three of my classes today, and I really wasn't in the mood for teaching an Ancient Runes class. I went to professor Dumbledore and asked him if I could cancel it, and when he said yes, I decided to spend the day in my dorm, resting. I was getting a bit tired, I had a terrible headache. I even forgot I had a Slug Club today. As I looked in the mirror, I found a scar on my forehead and wondered how long it would take to fade. 







I asked Clara if she wanted to spend some time together, and she said she had to go to the Slug Club today, and suggested we'd spend some time after it. 

"Maybe you can draw me again." She said smiling. And I said yes for two reasons. One, I was in the mood for drawing, and two, I loved drawing Clara. So there was I, waiting for her by the lake were we said we'd meet. 

"What're you doing here all alone?" She said breaking my thoughts. 

"Waiting for you, my lady." She giggled. 

"Does 'my lady' actually work with other girls?" 

"Well, it does work with you." I chuckled. She shook her head and sat next to me. She looked at the drawing notebook by my side and said, "How will you be able to draw me without light?" 

It was dark indeed. We sat there for a while and talked about the task, then decided to go inside so I can draw her. 

"Don't you mind staying still for a long time?" I asked. I've always wondered that. What would it be like to be the person drawn? 

"Not much. At least I have your company." And she blushed by that. I smiled. 

"Have I told you how much I love it when you blush Jas- Clara?" Clara looked shocked by that, I think so was I. Ever since the last time Clara and I talked about Jasmine I've been thinking of her. Not in the way I think of Clara, I'm not in love with her. But I think of her too often. I mean, she's my friend and what we had was a bit complicated, and bringing her name up made me think about her even before I go to sleep and - actually miss her. But also, bringing her name up reminded me of how we kissed while I was still in a relationship with Clara, which also made me feel uncomfortable and - guilty.

Clara didn't say anything for a while. And when she finally spoke she spoke in a small, low, hurt voice. 

"You love it when Jasmine blushes?" She was smiling, but it was one of those fake smiles. 

"Don't be silly, Clara. I meant you, but I said Jasmine accidentally. It's just because I've been thinking a lot about her lately." And I immediately regretted that. 

"You've been thinking about her? Like, thinking about the way she blushes and the way she does - whatever you like about her?"

"Clara what's wrong with you?! I told you it was a mistake!"

"You know Kyle, I've been thinking about her too. I've been thinking about what you said about her, and I went to Alex and asked her about her." Shit. She spoke to Alex about her? But it's not like I told Alex about what happened between me and Jasmine. "You said it was complicated. That you two kissed but your heart didn't belong to her. And when I asked you if you were in love with someone else, you said that you weren't in love with her the way you are with me. Then you asked me not to talk about her. I didn't find that really suspicious until I talked to Alex. Alex told me that you met Jasmine when she came back to Hogwarts, which only means a thing." She stopped, as if unable to say the words out. "This happened when we were together. You cheated on me. Didn't you?" I didn't know what to say. I was ashamed of what I've done. 


"You know what? Don't answer that. But answer this- why did you draw me, Kyle?" 

"Clara. I've already told you. I love you, that's why."

"So you loved her too."

"What I also told you, is that I once drew Alex too. Yes, I loved her, but like I love Alex. Like a friend."

"I'm not even sure... if you love Alex as a friend anymore." I looked at her in shock. 

"Clara. What the hell is wrong with you? Of course I love Alex as a friend - she's actually like a sister to me and you know that!" 

"So you've never loved her?!" She asked, expecting me to say I did. But I never did, no. 

"You know I never have!" 

"Alex told me that you and Jasmine we're just friends, Kyle. And I believed her. And guess what? So did you, so now I'm not sure I can believe either of you." 

And with that, she stood up and ran away.
