For Miss Natalie Pavlova, this evening is her sixth year at Hogwarts.
In the bathroom of the Hogwarts train, Natalie looked at herself in the mirror—
First she took off her hat and straightened her long dark red hair.
Natalie has always been proud of her silky hair.
Of course, there are also those almond-shaped clear green eyes, snow-white skin, and a proud figure…
In five years, a person can have many changes.
For example, let a delicate little girl grow into a slim big girl.
Just like Natalie has experienced.
“It’s beautiful!” she muttered looking at herself in the mirror.
This is not pure narcissism.
She is indeed very beautiful.
Natalie is recognized as the best-looking girl in the four colleges of Hogwarts sixth grade.
In the past few years, she has almost rejected the pursuit of more than a dozen boys.
So many people are secretly discussing whether there is a problem with this beautiful girl’s sexual orientation?
Whenever she faced a boy, she couldn’t help but compare it with the figure in her mind… and after that, she involuntarily lost any interest in the boy.
It’s perfect, the person in her heart…
The one who led her to the magical world.
The man with the highest status at Hogwarts today.
The train kept going north, and the rain was getting heavier and harder.
The sky was pitch black and the car windows were covered with moisture, so the lights were also lit during the day. Hey, the trolley for snacks is pushed down the aisle——
Natalie only bought a few licorice wands.
She has never been accustomed to eating too much, especially when she is about to attend the opening banquet at Hogwarts…
Intentionally or unconsciously, Natalie has always liked to go on a diet to keep her figure; although as a witch, she has no need to do so.
“Don’t you want some cauldron cake, Natalie?” a girl next to her asked.
“No, I’m not hungry!” Natalie shook her head.
“Whatever you want.” The girl also knew the habits of her friend, and she changed the subject: “Right, you know, Principal Hart is married?”
There was a rumble of thunder in the air, and the licorice wand in Natalie’s hand fell to the ground and shattered.
“What’s wrong with you?” the girl asked in surprise.
“No…nothing! This thunder is so loud…” Natalie stammered.
The girl did not notice her strangeness, and continued to say over there:
“The bride just passed the exam a few months ago. From Astoria Greengrass at Hogwarts, she seems to get four O’s in the final grade… But she and Principal Hart are a match made in heaven. It is said that they met on the first train to Hogwarts…”
Natalie turned her head to the side, her expression a bit bitter.
A few months ago, she also passed her Ls exam and got nine Os… Even if it was the exam two years later, she vowed that she would never have only four Os.
And… I obviously knew that person before I got on the Hogwarts train for the first time.
“The front page of the “Daily Prophet” published the entire process of their wedding. Mrs. Hart in the wedding dress is really beautiful… After the wedding, they went to the Isle of Man for almost half of their summer honeymoon. All of Gwartz’s work has been left, and Professor McGonagall is said to be trembling with this!”
The girl beside her smiled and said, every word she said was like a needle, poking into Natalie’s heart.
“According to the gossip… Mrs. Hart was pregnant a few weeks ago, hehe, the principal is really amazing!”
“Enough!” Natalie exclaimed, covering her ears.
“What’s wrong?” The **** the side looked at her friend in surprise.
“Hug… I’m sorry…” Natalie also seemed to notice that she was a little bit gaffe: “I…I want to take a break.”
“Then I won’t speak.” The girl curled her lips.
The sky was completely dark, and Natalie could clearly see herself facing the window.
Now, she seemed to see a completely defeated dog.
The Hogwarts Express finally slowed down and stopped at Hogsmeade Station in the dark.
The door of the car opened, and there was a rumble of thunder in the air.
They got off the train and trot with their heads down in the downpour.
The rain was rushing and violent, as if buckets of cold water were constantly pouring on their heads, very cold.
But Natalie’s heart is colder.
Following the flow of people dumbly, she moved step by step mechanically and walked across the dark platform.
Outside the station, a hundred horse-drawn carriages were waiting for them.
Natalie and her friends climbed into one of them, and a moment later, with a violent bump, the long horse caravan set off along the trail leading to Hogwarts Castle, splashing water all the way.
The carriage passed through the gate and drove along the wide lane in the direction of Hogwarts, swaying violently due to the strong wind.
Natalie leaned against the car window and saw Hogwarts getting closer, and she also suddenly realized that she was soaked all over.
She can actually pull out her magic wand and easily resolve this embarrassment, but she is not in the mood to do that.
Their carriage stopped under the stone steps in front of the two oak gates, and several people hurriedly got out of the carriage and then up the steps.
Soon after, Natalie heard a familiar voice–
“All in line, children!” Principal Jon Hart was standing in the doorway of the oak gate: “Such a bad weather, don’t catch a cold!”
While talking, he waved his wand and dried the hair and clothes of a student in front of him.
Not only is President Hart alone, there are also several professors…Professor McGonagall, Professor Flitwick, and Professor Snape…
“Hurry up, Natalie!” Someone behind her pushed her.
Natalie took a few steps forward and came to Principal Hart unknowingly.
“It’s okay!” Jon Hart asked with concern, and in the blink of an eye, she dried all Natalie’s wet hair and clothes.
“Joan…Principal Hart…” Natalie murmured.
“It’s you!” Jon glanced at her, with a smile on his face: “Miss Pavlova, how was your summer vacation?”
“Also…not bad…” Natalie replied, and walked into the auditorium at the urging of others behind her.
Maybe it’s because the clothes and hair are dry.
Her heart became warm without realizing it.
The sorting ceremony is over, it’s still the same, it’s nothing to watch.
The food at the banquet was very generous, but Natalie did not have a good appetite and did not want to eat too much.
She just wanted the banquet to end as soon as possible, so that Principal Hart could be heard.
Outside the castle, the heavy rain was still intensively beating the tall, black windows.
Another thunder sounded, causing the castle windows to bang.
A flash of lightning flashed across the hazy ceiling, illuminating the golden plate, the remaining food on the plate disappeared, and the sweet dessert was filled in the blink of an eye.
Natalie only tasted some raisin pudding. But she also knew that the banquet lasted not long.
Just as Natalie expected, the dessert was quickly wiped out, and the plate became clean and shiny again.
In the guest seat, Principal Jon Hart also stood up.
“First of all, I must inform everyone that the herbal medicine teacher Professor Pomona Sprout has decided to retire from Hogwarts in order to devote all her energy to caring for the precious things she has grown. Among the plants.”
There was a sigh in the hall. Especially the students at Hufflepuff’s long table are particularly uncomfortable.
After all, Professor Sprout has always been popular at Hogwarts.
“At the same time, please allow me to introduce our new herbal medicine professor, Professor Neville Longbottom!” Principal Hart continued.
A somewhat familiar figure stood up, Neville Longbottom who graduated from Hogwarts a year ago.
Applause suddenly sounded, and Natalie also clapped. After all, Mr. Longbottom was also her senior in Gryffindor.
“In addition, there is another important news.” Jon Hart said with a smile: “A few months later, an ancient event held every five years is about to start again—”
“That is, the Triwizard Tournament!”
“I’m afraid some of you still don’t know what the hegemony match is all about, so I hope those who know the situation can forgive me for explaining a little bit here—”
Natalie was stunned.
In the main guest seat, Jon Hart’s voice sounded again:
“The Triwizard Tournament was founded more than 700 years ago. It is a kind of friendly competition between the three largest magic schools in Europe. The three schools are: Hogwarts, Boothbatten and Demster. Lang. Each school selects a warrior, and then three warriors compete in three magic projects. The Triwizard Tournament is held every five years and the three schools take turns to host it. Everyone agrees that this is young wizards from different countries. A great way to build friendship—”
“Five years ago, the Triwizard Tournament resumed. That time it was held at Hogwarts. I think many older students still have some impression of it!”
“Of course, this time the venue is not at Hogwarts, but at Boothbatten School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in France! I will lead ten sixth and seventh graders from Hogwarts to France to participate in this event. The event starts on the eve of Halloween. Interested students can register with your dean, and the requirement is to be 17 years old before October 30!”
Natalie clenched her fist lightly.
She meets this condition.
At the same time… She seems to have found an opportunity.
A small opportunity to help her beg her to lose her identity.
This may also be the last chance.
It is October 29, 1999.
The day before Halloween, it was also the day when the Hogwarts team went to Boothbarton School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to participate in the Triwizard Tournament.
Miss Natalie Pavlova, holding a piece of parchment tightly in her hand.
This was given to her by Professor McGonagall yesterday to go to France.
Hogwarts’ sixth and seventh grade students, after a period of fairly fierce “competition”, decided the positions of the last ten places.
But Natalie stood out without any suspense.
Now, there is still an hour before departure.
Natalie decided to do one thing!
One thing that might cause her to be expelled from Hogwarts…
It was also something she had to do.
Passing through the endless stream of people, Natalie quietly came to the front of the potions classroom.
While no one was paying attention, she drew out her wand and chanted softly: “Alohomora!”
With a slight noise and then just a creak, the door of the potions classroom was opened.
Although Professor Horace Slughorn is an excellent potions teacher, he is always careless…
And for classrooms and offices, it has always been negligent.
These are all “measured” by Natalie over the past two months.
And the purpose of Natalie’s trip–
It was because she clearly remembered that in the first potion class of this semester, Professor Slughorn introduced them to a magical potion.
The potion that can help her…
She wanted to steal some of that potion and take it to France.
The little girl searched in front of crucible after crucible, her heart was already touching her throat.
Time passed by every minute…Professor Horace Slughorn may push in at any time…
Natalie’s little hands were also shaking slightly.
Finally, she found the familiar crucible——
The unique luster of mother-of-pearl, the unique spiraling steam, and the beautiful taste…
Natalie smelled the grass in the snow… This was her favorite smell in childhood!
And… the breath she smelled when she went to Diagon Alley for the first time.
She made it!
Natalie was very careful, taking out a few glass bottles from her pocket and filling them all.
Then, she tried her best to restore everything to its original state.
Of course, it doesn’t matter if she is discovered later; in an hour, she will be able to leave Hogwarts and board the train to France.
By then, Professor Slughorn could not find her either.
Finally took a look at the small glass bottle in his hand–
These are “powerful ecstasy”!
It is the most effective and powerful love potion in the magical world.
One hour later.
Between the mountains of the Pyrenees, the floating city hanging upside down in the sky, the beautiful and dazzling castle.
Here is the Boothbarton School of Magic among the three major magic schools in Europe.
On the square, groups of children wearing light blue silk coats lined up neatly in a square, under the leadership of a professor.
Of course, the most conspicuous one was the huge female principal.
Ms. Olim Maxim, the principal of Boothbaton School of Magic.
Mrs. Maxim’s dress is very decent and very formal, shiny black high heels. There are many luxurious opals on the neck and thick fingers.
Whether it is Bussbarton’s principal, teachers or students, they are all waiting for this triwizard competition and the arrival of the other two teams.
Suddenly, a golden light and shadow appeared in the sky.
Very small light and shadow, but extremely shining… It flies in the direction of Boothbarton little by little, getting closer and closer…
“It’s a phoenix!” Someone whispered.
But as Professor Maxim stared coldly, his voice stopped abruptly.
Phoenix flew to the floating island where Boothbarton was located, and she turned gracefully around a few hundred yards away from the Boothbatten square.
A golden halo appeared in front of everyone.
Immediately afterwards, a loud siren sounded.
A crimson steam locomotive drove out from the golden aperture…
The sign on the train reads: Hogwarts Express!
At the same time, there is a huge shield coat of arms on the head of the train, and a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake are circled around the capital “H” letter.
In the smoke of steam, the train stopped on the side of the road.
“Let us welcome…” Ms. Olim Maxim said loudly, her voice loud enough to be heard by the entire floating island:
“Principal Jon Hart of Hogwarts, and the representative team from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!”
A young man in a suit got off the train first.
Then, about a dozen male and female students also got off the train, and they soon stood beside Principal Jon Hart.
Judging from their appearance, they are probably around 17 or 18 years old.
And Natalie Pavlova is one of them.
All the students entered the auditorium, followed by the teachers, who filed to the main guest table and sat down.
At the end are Professor Maxim (President Busbarton), Professor Vance (President Durmstrang) and Professor Hart (President Hogwarts).
The students of Boothbarton stood up quickly when they saw their principal appear. They did not sit down again until Mrs. Maxim sat down in the center of the main guest table. Principal Hart and Principal Vance sat on either side of her.
“Welcome to Boothbarton, Principal Hart!” In Boothbarton’s auditorium, the three principals of the magic school talked cordially: “Of course, there is Principal Vance!”
Principal Vance also glanced at Principal Hart and made a salute to him.
The dinner began, and the table was full of various types of French dishes.
Natalie simply ate a few bites of the dishes, somewhat absent-minded.
The other people in the auditorium are constantly looking at them, with an anxious look on every face. Everyone was fidgeting and stood up from time to time to see if Ms. Maxim had finished eating. They are all looking forward to it and want to know who the warriors representing the three schools are.
The golden plate finally returned to its original spotless state, and the voice in the auditorium suddenly rose a lot.
Mrs. Olim Maxim stood up, and the auditorium suddenly became silent again. Hart and Vance on both sides of Maxim looked as expectant as everyone else.
Natalie gently held her hands in a cross on her chest.
She prayed silently…
In an instant, the lights of the entire castle went out.
The auditorium fell into a half-dark state.
The goblet of fire now emits a dazzling light, brighter than anything in the entire auditorium, and the blue and white flames that shoot sparks are a bit dazzling.
The flame in the goblet suddenly turned red again, and crackling sparks burst out.
Then, a tongue of fire leaped into the air, and a piece of scorched parchment flew out of it-everyone in the auditorium held their breath.
Mrs. Maxim grabbed the parchment–
The flame was now blue and white again.
“Warrior of Hogwarts!” she said loudly:
“It’s Natalie Pavlova!”
There was a groaning sigh at the long table at Hogwarts. The two girls who were not selected burst into tears, buried their heads in their arms, and cried sadly.
Applause and cheers suddenly sounded, and Natalie clenched her hands into fists.
She made it!
She did it!
And all she did was not for the glory of Hogwarts…but for that person!
“Good job, Miss Pavlova!” Principal Jon Hart was waiting for her in the cabin.
Now, there are only two of them in this cabin.
Natalie hesitated for a moment, and she whispered: “Call me Natalie…Principal Hart…that’s how you called me before…”
Her voice became softer and quieter, and finally she couldn’t even hear her.
“Okay.” Principal Hart smiled and nodded, unaware that the girl’s voice had other meanings:
“Don’t be too concerned about success or failure. The purpose of the Triwizard Tournament itself is just for the friendship between the three academies… When participating in the competition, you must pay attention to your own safety and don’t use too dangerous spells. Or magic items…Of course, if you have any questions, you can come to me at any time.”
Natalie was waiting for the last sentence, and a happy smile was raised at the corner of her mouth.
“I will, Principal Hart…” She nodded seriously.
After hesitating for a while, she said softly again: “I remember the Triwizard Tournament five years ago…You represented Hogwarts and won the final championship, didn’t you?”
Jon was stunned, then nodded: “Forget it…”
“Then I will definitely represent Hogwarts this time ~www.snovelfree.com~ and win the final victory!” The little girl clenched her fist again.
“Then I congratulate you in advance!” Principal Hart patted her shoulder gently.
“If… I mean if… If I win the Goblet of Fire, Principal Hart, what reward can you give me?” Natalie asked suddenly with a smile.
“If you really get the final victory, I will definitely meet any of your requirements!” Principal Hart said without hesitation: “Of course, the premise is not to violate the law of the wizarding world.”
Natalie’s heart suddenly tightened.
At this moment, thunderous cheers came from outside the house.
Probably a warrior from another academy, has also been selected!
