“Your attention please!,” Everybody was quiet and turned to look at Dumbledore. He looked around to make sure that he had everybody’s attention.
“ I would like to say a few words. Eternal glory, that is what awaits the student who wins the tri-wizard tournament. But to do this that student must survive three
tasks. Three extremely dangerous tasks.”
“ Wicked,” whisper Fred and waited for what Dumbledore was going to say next.
“For this reason, the ministry has seen fit to impose a new rule. To explain all this we have the head of the department of international magic cooperation Mister Bartimus Crouch.”
A man with a black coat stood walked over to Dumbledore and took off his hat before facing all the students. He wasn’t an old man like Dumbledore but he had gray hair and a little gray mustache.
“After much deliberation, the ministry has concluded that for their own safety no student
under the age of seventeen shall be allowed to put forth their name for the tri-wizard tournament.” The crowd of students begins to shout and booing, well almost everybody. The Raxora students didn’t seem to care about the decision, and just watched everybody shouting. “This decision is final,” Said Bartimus with a loud voice
George stood up on his seat. “ That’s rubbish! You don’t know what you’re doing!.”
Everybody stop shouting and sat down on their seat when Dumbledore shouted out.
The doors opened and few men walked in with a big box, they put down the box in front of Dumbledore and backed away. Dumbledore cast magic over the box which melds into a goblet containing a blue flame.
“ The goblet of fire. Anyone wishing to submit themselves for the tournament merely write their name on a piece of parchment and throw it in the flame before this hour on Thursday night. Do not do so lightly, if chosen, there’s no turning back. As from this moment the tri-wizard tournament has begun.” Dumbledore’s eyes looked around. “ Now time to go to bed, I hope you all will get along.”
The sound of people standing up and walking to the door was heard all over the great hall, I glanced at the Raxora headmaster who was moving out of her seat really fast. The tall headmaster beside her was trying to talk to her, but writing on the young headmaster face showed that she was a little annoyed for whatever the tall headmaster talked to her about.
Delta and his sister were on their way to walk out, but I stopped them.
“ Delta, why weren’t you all against the decision they made?.”
Delta raised an eyebrow. “ About the ages?.” I nodded
“ Because we are not interested in this game,” said Terisa and rubbed her green eyes.
“ Am glad about that decision, now I don’t have to worry that I will be in that game.” Said Rose and yawn.
Delta nodded. “ Well you two are, I am seventeen. But I really hope am not chosen for this game.”
Ron who hears everything stared at them in surprise. “ But you are from the talented school in the world, you would win the game easy.”
Delta looked at Mister Bartimus Crouch with narrow eyes, before turning around. “ Let’s go Terisa, Rose. “ His sisters glanced at Mister Bartimus Crouch before walking after their brother out from the great hall.
“ What was that about?,” asked Ron.
Hermione walked up to us. “ Its the people from the ministry.”
We both looked at her with question eyes, which made her roll her eyes.
“ Their school have been hidden for many many years. Even the ministry don’t know where it is, so maybe….” She looked at the people from the ministry. “ They don’t want to be in the game because the ministry tries to know their talents.”
“Its more than that,” said a voice behind us and we all three turned around to see the young headmaster with her dragon on her shoulder. Ron pointed at her with an open mouth, but he didn’t make any sound. She stared at his pointy finger but turned her attention to Hermione.
“ The ministry tried to trick me and everybody in my school for many years.”
“ But, “ begin Hermione. “ Why did you decided to be in this game?.”
She shrugged. “ Something came up,” she took out a letter from her dress and held it out to me. “ Am really sorry for what happened before so I want to invite you and your friends, to our place tomorrow night.” I took the letter and glanced at Ron, who looked like he was going to faint in any second. And Hermione looked like she was going to fly away in happiness and didn’t seem to be mad at the headmaster anymore.
“ Um, thanks. “ I didn’t know what to say, and maybe was because everybody who was going out from the great hall stopped and stared at me when the young headmaster gave me the letter. Beside the Raxora students who was already out from the great hall, all the other students stared at me with jealous eyes,and some were looking at me with big eyes like puppies.
The headmaster noticed it, so she walked closer to me and whisper. “ Don’t lose the letter, its the only thing that allows you and your friends in the dragon statue.” She smiled at me and walked away with the big scary man who stared at me with hard eyes when he walked out. But everybody still stared at me when the headmaster was gone, and I knew it was going to be a long night and long day tomorrow.
“Why did you invite him and his friends?.”
She ignored me and walked really fast over the wet grass, and had a very serious face all the way. When we finally were in the dragon statue, she almost ran through the students who were still in the hall and all the way to her room. I ran after her and thank the stars that she have the dress on that made her run slower than normal.
“ What is going on?.” I asked and watched her taking out a book while the dragon was licking her cheek.
“ Sister, are you okay?.”
She looked up at me like it was the first time she ever saw me. “ Yeah...Yeah, am okay.”
I narrow my eyes at her but pretended that I believed her. Which she know I didn’t.
“ Okay, so tell me why did you invite that boy and his friends?.”
She bites her nails. “ We need to be there when he need us.”
She walked to the window. “ There will be that time when nobody of his friends will be there for him.”
“ So you invited him so he could see us, the students and all our teacher as his friends?.”
She nodded a little. “ Yes, if he as nobody there for him. There will be a darkness like no other.”
