It’s Teddy again. Today every student was on it’s best behaviour. The triwizard tournament was starting today. Students from the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and the Drumstrang institute were arriving today. We only had classes in the morning so we could all prepare the great hall to receive the guests. James Sirius and I were both hanging some banners with our wands in the great hall when Dumbledore asked us all to go to our tables.
« I’ll talk to you tonight. » I told James, kissing him tenderly.
I sat at the Hufflepuff table and Dumbledore spoke up again.
« Dear Students I want you all to welcome The lovely ladies of the Beaubatons academy of magic! »
The big doors opened and a bunch of girls entered wearing silky baby blue dresses. A few guys had their mouths open and it made me laugh. Even Victoire was impressed. As loyal as she is with her muggle girlfriend, she was smirking at the pretty girls walking in the great hall.
« Now, let’s welcome the students of The Drumstrang institue! »
Some manly boys walked in with big fur coat. They looked a bit scary to be honest. A few girls were whispering and some other boys were rolling their eyes.
When everyone was sat, Dumbledore showed us the triwizard cup. It really was beautiful. But as much as I like looking at it’s blue lighting, I knew it was what led Cedric to his death. I closed my eyes and took a dee breath.
« You okay Ted? » Victoire asked me.
« Yeah.. I’m alright. »
The other students got to visit the school and their rooms. James Sirius and I went outside to do a bit of homework and take a bit of fresh air.
« I never would’ve believed that we would’ve got the chance to attend the famous triwizard tournament. » James said.
« Yeah.. It’s nice that they made it a celebration and not a competiton. »
« Are you sure about participating? I don’t want you to get hurt.. »
« I am. It won’t be the same.. It’ll be for fun and to show people that we never forgot Cedric. » I said, smiling.
« You really see yourself in him, do you? » He asked, brushing his hand in my curls.
« A bit.. I just think he deserved much more recognition. » I said.
« I agree with you. But you’ll make those people realize that. I know you will. »
He hugged me and ripped a piece of paper for his notebook, writing my name on it. Tommorow, my name would be in the cup. For Cedric.
