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?


104. The Yule Ball





Everyone was happy at lunchtime. Well, everyone but me. 

It seemed like every guy in the school asked some girl to go with him. Alex was just telling us about how romantic Sirius was when he asked her to come with him yesterday. "Then he said, I mean we both know we're going together, because, like, it would be crazy not to do so, but I have to ask you, because every girl has to hear this, and I would be an idiot not to let you hear it.." I stopped paying attention, which made me feel a bit guilty, but oh come on! I was so furious at Remus. Does him not asking me means he doesn't feel like saying it is important or does it simply mean he doesn't want to go with me after what happened yesterday? "Earth to Max." Ally said. 


"I was just saying that the Marauders are here, don't you want to join them with us?" 

"Oh." I said. I looked at their table, there was Remus, joking with the others, letting me feel awful. "Maybe later."

"Are you alright?" She asked. It seemed like everyone was looking at me, just because Alex, Clara and Lara were. 

"Yeah, sure."

"Then come with us, we won't leave without you." Clara said. Alex nodded beside her. 

"Fine." I said grumpily. 

Everyone was talking and joking and laughing, I was just sitting there, staring at Remus most of the time, waiting for him to say something. Good Lord, why won't he just say something?!

"Max you're doing it again." Alex whispered. "I'm talking to you. And I know you're not alright, so do you want to come and walk with me, tell me about it?" 

"Why won't he say anything?" I said in a low voice. "What? Don't you care about me at all, don't I deserve like all the other girls to hear it from you?" Now my voice was higher, I was looking at Remus and he finally gave me his attention. "Or don't you want to come with me? Just because I've been spending some time with Kyle who is, by the way, my friend!" Everyone was quiet. 

"It's not just because of that."

"So you don't want to go with me." I said unable to believe it. The embarrassment. It's like he slapped on the face in front of everyone. He remained silent, which made everything worse. I couldn't bare it anymore. I stood up and turned to leave, I didn't run, but I sprinted to my dorm, where I can cry peacefully. 

"Max!" Someone called me when I was out of the Great Hall. "MAX." It was Remus, about time. I ignored him and continued walking up the stairs. He ran so he can get past me and stood right in front of me. I looked to my left, so that I won't have to make eye-contact with him. 

"Excuse me, but I want to go to my dorm and I don't want to talk to anyone. Especially not you."

"Just listen to me." I continued walking, he held my arm. "Max! Please!"

"What?! Wasn't my humiliation enough for you? Wasn't my sadness? What do you want, Remus? Do you have anything else to add? You want us to break up, we'll be nothing, as you like, but I've had enough." I said exploding.

"All of that's because I didn't ask you to come with me to the ball?"

"Oh but it's not just that! You've just humiliated me in front of everyone. And it's also because you don't want me to come with you just because of a silly reason-"

"It's not a silly reason, and it's not just because of the Kyle thing! You lied to me. It made me so mad-"

"And I wanted to tell you the truth! I regretted lying to you. Did you regret what you just did now?" 

"Yes! Why else would I be following you if I haven't." He sighed. We both fell paused for a while, taking a breath. "Look, can we just calm down and talk about it?" I crossed my arms, not even wanting to say the word "Fine" I nodded. 

We sat down, not knowing who should start, I decided I'd do it. 

"When Alex was in a coma, Kyle was the only one who could feel like me, we both lost our friend, Alex is his closest friend and is also my closest friend. Kyle wanted to destroy Katy and so did I, that's why we spent so much time together then, and after we went to see Katy, that became another reason sit together and talk together. After we saw your reaction about the whole talking to Katy thing, we both decided it would be better if none of us told you what we talk about, we never actually agreed on it or talked about it, but I never told you about it and neither did Kyle. We talk about her when we're together, since you wanted to know. Telling you about this would've made you mad, that's why I never told you about it. That's why I lied to you."

"But Max.. you shouldn't have lied, I mean I know you did it for good reasons, but still, I hate lying and you know it."

"I know, Remus! I know, even Kyle told me so, that's why I wanted to tell you. But you never waited." We both paused, but we both knew it was now Remus's turn to talk. 

"I would be lying to you if I told you that I felt like asking you to the ball. It's not that I didn't want you to go to the ball with me, but because I was mad at you. It's not the only reason why I didn't do it, though. Even that I was mad at you, I did want you to go to the ball with me. I still love you, Max, even when you get me mad. I was trying to think of a nice, creative way to ask you when I'm mad at you, and I was still trying to find one. Believe me, I was mad because everyone else asked their girls and I didn't, you're not the only one who was mad because of that." He looked into my eyes. 

"Why is it so hard to be mad at you?" I asked. His lips curved into a smile. 

"Would you believe me if I told you I was just thinking the same thing about you?" I grinned, and rested my head on his chest. He immediately wrapped his arms around me and pulled me closer. "You're okay now?" 

"I'm okay." I whispered. "Well, I guess you found it then." I said sighing.

"Found what?" He asked. 

"A creative way to ask me to the ball." I said smiling. He brushed my cheek with his lips. 






This year's preparations were easier than last year's. Clara helped us a lot with picking our dressed, by now she knows our taste pretty good and she knows what would look good on us. 

Of course, at first I didn't want to wear a dress, but after Clara found me something I liked and reminded me of how amazed Remus was last year, I decided I'd wear one. The ball's once every four years anyway. It's not like I'll wear a dress everyday. 

I ended up with dark blue one, Clara with a white one, Alex with a red one, Lara with a black one and Lily with a pink one. Last year's yule ball was amazing, I can't wait for this year's.







The ball was amazing this year. We spent the night dancing, laughing and talking. Sirius has never been more handsome, neither has he been more cute. He was playing all gentleman for me. I can't believe how lucky I am to have him. 

Max and Remus were the center of the party, they really rocked. They danced more than most of us, I guess they were the most energized. What I love about them is that they're each other personality's opposite, which makes a great attraction between the two of them. but still they find some of themselves in each other, I mean Remus is always a hard-worker student, Max isn't like him, but they're both mischievous, both have great charisma and they're both exploding with energy. 

Sirius caught me looking at them, smiling and said, "You see how he looks at her?" He asked. I nodded. 

"Like she's the only girl in the room." 

"That's how it feels like when I see you." I looked at him and smiled.

"I love you." I said meaning it. Will this word ever be enough?
