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?


50. The Lucky Ten

"Courage is never to let your actions

be influenced by your fears."

-Arthur Koestler







I dripping with sweat, as if I've been swimming in it. It was so disgusting, but it wasn't the only thing that I cared about.

This test's got me exhausted, maybe it had to, since it's the last test to Hogwarts and everything, but it was a nightmare that I don't wish to ever recall. Yes, I like to get scared, I like the rush of adrenaline in my veins, and how my heart races when I'm scared, but not this. This was not in any way cool. Mr Brooks soon came to me with a water bottle in his hands. He tapped my shoulder and started congratulating me. I started drinking the water as if I've never seen water in my life. 

I was the first one to be done. Everyone else still had more rooms to enter. I guess they had more fears than I did, it can't make me any stronger though. I wondered about Jasmine, how many fears has she got? And was she mastering her fear? I wondered how good I was in each room. 

"You don't have to stay here on the ground, kid. Come and sit here on the sofas." Mr Brooks said. 

"I need to shower." I said in almost a whisper, my voice wont rise more. I was surprised to realise that he actually heard me.

"Well, you all will, but let's just see who wins this thing first and then you'll all go to your houses and take showers and have some rest."  I nodded weakly and went to the sofas. They weren't very comfortable, but they were better than the ground. 

After a while of waiting and hearing the bell every three minutes, Jasmine was lead by Miss Holly, and she sat on one of the sofas, not facing me. She was crying, or so she looked, and I could see she had sweat all over her back, like me. It felt kinda good, honestly. Maybe I wasn't doing really bad after all. Still, I felt bad for her. What got her to be in that bad shape? Jasmine, who is always beautiful. She was pale too, and she covered her eyes with the palms of her hands. I wondered if she was sobbing or if she was just shaking, and because I couldn't really help it, I walked to her and sat beside her. She didn't really seem to notice me until I put my arm around her shoulder and got her closer. I started kissing her head, and rubbing her shoulder, and she suddenly hugged me, and was sobbing so bad. 

"Hey, don't cry. None of that was real, it was just a test." She looked at me in the eyes. 

"You don't understand." She whispered, and shook her head. Slowly, she stopped crying, and when I found her getting better, I smiled at her, and she gave me a weak smile in return, and I went back to my first seat. 

After a lot of waiting, everyone was here again. We all looked awful. Pale, exhausted, terrified, sick. It was like being in a funeral, or with people who took drugs. It was really bad, and I think that was the worst we all could ever look like. At last Mr Brooks, Miss Holly and Mr Black all came, started talking to themselves secretly for a bit and then looked at us each and wrote ten names on the paper. Then Miss Holly started reading the names aloud. 


"These are the Names of the Ten Students 

Who Will Be Able to Go to

The Trip to Hogwarts in Alphabetical Order:"



We cheered weakly by the mention of each name;



"Aua Roy

Cristopher Scott

David Moore 

Kyle Alford

Lue Sergent 

Maya Gill 

Oliver Scott 

Sarah Mitchell 

Samantha Walker

Zakery Morin 


I know that you've been through a lot in these rooms, but you deserved it. And whoever couldn't make it, well, I'm really sorry, there was nothing we could do. Going to Hogwarts is a serious thing during these times." 


I couldn't really sort my emotions. I wasn't just happy to know that I'm finally going to Hogwarts, I was thrilled beyond words. But to know that I wasn't to take my trip with Jasmine, it felt like splashing freezing water in my face. I was shocked. And I felt really bad for her. She worked so hard, and she deserved to come with me. She wanted it so bad. She stood up, and started to leave, but at that time, I couldn't even follow her.
