Meera quickly recovered to give a boost to Hogwarts’ Quidditch team, but they still couldn’t win the trophy. She looked a little lost every now and there. She hadn’t told anyone her secret, not even Neal and Benny. She didn’t know if any of it made sense.
A final farewell was organized for the winners and all the team and their schools. It was a party scheduled in the ground itself.
Everyone was dressed in their best dresses and robes. Meera, Benny and Neal reached the ground. The match ground had been converted into a huge hall filled with lights, ribbons, tables filled with food and a fountain in the middle.
‘It smells good,’ Benny said looking at the table filled with cheese delicacies. ‘We should try some.’
Meera nodded and the three headed to taste a few cheese pies.
‘I hear there’s going to be a dance too,’ Neal added eating his pie. ‘This pie is good.’
‘Who will you dance with?’ Meera questioned and immediately fell silent.
‘I might ask Gia. And you?’
‘I don’t know.’
‘She’ll of course ask Li, you see,’ interrupted Benny.
Meera turned slightly red.
The remaining team also entered the hall. The Durmstrang team was dressed in their dark robes, eliciting power and the Beaubaxtons were as elegant as ever.
‘How are the boys even that elegant, we should learn some,’ said Meera looking at the Beaubaxtons students.
‘French perfume,’ said Neal as a girl passed by.
Benny looked at him with a weird look in her eye.
Headmistress Elysian appeared from one of the corner and smiled at the Hogwarts students. Zuck was besides her.
‘Enjoying the party?’ he asked as a group of students passed by them.
Everyone of them nodded back in appreciation.
‘The party isn’t bad, is it Headmistress,’ he said looking at Elysian.
‘Not half as bad.’
‘How’s Meera doing?’ she asked.
‘She’s fine. Looks little lost every now and then, but intact enough.’
‘Is everything alright?’
‘The secret’s out.’
