Pass This On

Bellatrix Malfoy found a small brown journal lying on her desk on the last day of 7th Year. A small note on the cover told her it belonged to her best mate, Rose Weasley. She had left school three days early to head off to Edinburg to attend the National Wizarding University. It was the best Wizarding University in the entire world, and Rose was quite proud when she received her letter.
Bellatrix herself was quite pleased, having gotten into the British University for Witches and Wizards. BUWW. It came to no surprise, as she had gotten into many other universities as well. She had chose the tiny BUWW only because of their amazing training for hit witches.
She opened the book, surprised to find the first page written to her.
Dear Bellatrix Malfoy,
If you are reading this, I am either dead or have been accepted into the National Wizarding University. I'd hope it's the latter. I do hope you finish reading this soon enough to pass it on to the next person. They can pass it around after that. You can read the other pages if you want, I doubt they care.
Bellatrix laughed at her friend's choice of words. Only Rose would start a letter with 'I am either dead or have accomplished my greatest dream'. She quickly flipped through the book, looking at the names. Some she recognized, others she didn't quite remember.
I sincerely hope you also got accepted into that school. The British University for Witches and Wizards, was it? We can all expect great things from you, the brightest witch of the age. And if you're nearby my school, (or grave, ha-ha), do come visit me. It's awfully nice, having you as a best friend.
This made Bellatrix smile. She, too, had enjoyed Rose's company for all 7 years at Hogwarts. She could still remember when they first met. She had already boarded the train while her brother was talking to their parents. Rose had entered her compartment, and Bellatrix immediately recognized her as the girl her parents told her to beat.
Rose seemed rather flustered when she sat down, talking about her parents pressuring her. Bellatrix had nodded in agreement before introducing herself. Rose's eyes had widened, not expecting her to be a Malfoy. With her dark brown ringlets of hair and green eyes, no one expected her to be one.
Rose was about to leave when she had asked her to stay. Luckily, Rose did.
Now I suppose you have no idea why I'm writing this, that will all be explained much later. I also suppose you don't think you can pass this all the way around school, as that's how many different people are enclosed in this book. At least one from each house! Quite the task!
Bellatrix groaned. She didn't feel like running all over school attempting to find Rose's other friends.
Let me tell you a secret.
To this, she raised an eyebrow. Rose didn't give away her secrets so easily.
There's something called owls that can deliver this journal to everyone. I trust these pages will make their way around. I'm trusting you with this, Bella.
Bellatrix rolled her eyes again. Owls. Of course. Rose's connotation was absolutely hilarious. She laughed at her own sarcasm.
Why can't I do this myself? The answer is quite simple. I am either dead or have cut ties with everyone since I got into NWU. I do hope you understand. As my best friend, make sure if they don't pass it around, you do.
She scowled. Rose Weasley wanted to cut ties with everyone just because she needed to focus her studies at NWU? She glared at the page, but still read on to find Rose had signed it.
Your Best Friend,
P.S. The next letter is also for you!
She flipped the page.
