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?


22. The Announcement

Kyle's P.O.V


Jasmine sat next to me, we had a History class. Damn it. The teacher wasn't replaced, sadly. The class was as boring as ever, but I was neither sleeping, nor doodling. I was just looking from the class's window and thinking. About everything. 

"Psst." I heard Jasmine say. I turned my face to look at her. "What are you thinking of?" She whispered. I grabbed my notebook and opened the last page of it and stared writing, 


About everything, nothing specific.

Write. It's much safer. :S 


Jasmine laughed, and took a green pen from her pencil case. It was also green, and it was full of colorful pens. 


Let's do something fun. 


She wrote. Her handwriting definitely better than mine.  


Like what?


She lift her head from the notebook and looked at me. Like, really, really looked at me. And it kinda spooked me, I don't really know why. My eyebrows were crossed, and I was trying to study her like she was studying me. At last she broke the eye contact and wrote, 


We can play a game...


I wanted to ask her about the game, but the speaker let out a very hurtful noise abruptly, and it took my attention. 


"Attention students." The principal's voice said. "Well, sorry for that, we definitely need to fix it. So anyway.. I want to tell you about a huge announcement that will get some of you really excited. It's an honor to the school, really. I want you at first, to know that this announcement is not for everyone. It's just for the people who will show that they're qualified for it. Now I know what you're all thinking, "What's he talking about?" " 

Indeed, that's what I was thinking.


Alex's P.O.V


Professor Dumbledore cleared his throat, and everyone was listening to him now. 

"As you know, every five years Hogwarts joins a something that is so great and so important in the wizarding world. The Triwizard Tournament. Believe it or not, time passes really fast, and it's been five years since the last tournament was held. Yes, this means that there will be a tournament for this year." Professor Dumbledore paused for a while. Allowing the hall to go insane. 

I've heard Max saying something about the triwizard tournament once, last year. I now remembered. But she didn't explain anything about it for me then, she told me just to forget about it. It's probably complicated or something. But it's a contest that has a ball as a part of it, and I just know that much about it. And I'm not even sure about this part. 

"For those who don't know about the Triwizard Tournament, I can tell you a bit about it." The hall was filled with students shouting "yes." so professor Dumbledore nodded and continued, "The Triwizard Tournament is a magical contest that is usually held by Hogwarts, and two other large schools in Europe; Durmstrang Institute, and Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Each school gets represented by a champion that gets used in a specific way that I will be telling you about later. The three champions must compete in three dangerous tasks, designed to test magical ability, intelligence and courage. Whoever wins, gets the glory and honour for their school and themselves, and also gets  the Triwizard Cup and a monetary prize." Everyone around me started talking.

"Oh my god, I didn't know it was this year!" Max was saying. 

"How-ever." Said professor Dumbledore slowly. Everyone stopped talking. "Durmstrang Institute could not be a part of the tournament this year." Everyone started rejecting. I don't even know anything about Durmstrang Institute, so I wasn't really disappointed. "That's why ... the ministry of magic's decided after a lot of thinking to let a school join the tournament in stead of it." Everyone was looking at professor Dumbledore, waiting for him to finally say the school's name. I knew no schools in the wizarding world except for Hogwarts and also wanted to know the school's name, probably as much as they did. "It had to be a school which's students have already spent time at Hogwarts-"

"But only Durmstrang and Beauxbaton's ever visited Hogwarts, as far as I know." 

"So it had to be a muggles' school." Suddenly I was the most surprised and interested one of the students. I started listening more intently than ever to professor Dumbledore's words. And my ears felt like they got super hearing powers. I heard some Slytherin's shrieking. "Indeed it is the school that one of our students came from. Cambridge High school."
