Chapter 6: Getting It All Cleared Out

Waiting the hour for dinner by the lake I was bored. As much as I looked in its horizon it didn’t seem clear. I don’t know if it was because of all the fuss in my head or because of the color of the water. Honestly I didn’t know. How could Luna do this to me? I’ve never held anything back from her, but I’m not fixing to start now either. Still, why? Why would she hide something so important from me? We’ve always have found time to tell each other practically everything. This wasn’t so hard to tell. Maybe to understand, but that is still no reason! I know that Draco wouldn’t have told me. No matter how many times I’ve tried to figure out why it didn’t work. At least now it was dinner time.” I wish I had my mother right now! At least I can understand this feeling from Luna now. Hmm… maybe… I’ll give this idea a try.

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee.” Waiting for a response was a bit frustrating.

“Yes, Candela?” their voice are a soft honey sweet whisper. Not many people know this, but if you are very quiet, concentrate, clear the mind, and wait without a worry, stars talk to you. (More if you ask a question.)

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. May thee have the honor to ask a few questions?” Having to say the first sentence is a must every time you say, or ask something to the stars. If someone doesn’t say it, it’s considered being rude.

“Yes, thee may ask whatever thee desires”

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. Why would Luna, my cousin, not tell me what she’s feeling, or whom she’s with?”

“Because darling, she’s in Love! Dear honest and pure love! And she’s also afraid”

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. Of what and why is she afraid?”

“Darling, she’s afraid of too many questions, afraid of what his friends might say, afraid of what people will do to both of them. We’ll tell you a secret, his father has been consumed by promises and power that he’s among the dark ones.”

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. Why did she not confide in me?”

“Candela, she knows you. She knows that you will try to sink your point of view into their heads! And darling it can backfire really badly.”

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. That is all? Just because of that she isn’t telling me?”

“Honey, almost not completely. She wants to tell you, but she doesn’t know how. She also wants to tell you without you going around all over the place with arms in the air, and without you slaying her boyfriend alive.”All of us chuckled at that last one.

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. I would probably have done that.”

“Sweaty, this is her first boyfriend she’s having feelings that she has never felt before! Trust us the boy has well in him, and right now he has a sweet distraction in his arms. A distraction from what everyone expects him to be.”

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. Concerning his father’s plan of him being…”

“Yes darling, a dark wizard. His mother just cares for his safety. His mother is actually quite nice, but she herself doesn’t know how to escape her situation. She’s hung on to the love that she has for her husband.”

“Stars above, Stars a shine, Stars that see, please hear thy thee. Thank you, thank you for the words of truth that you have given me.”

“Candela, you are welcome. Darling we will talk another time, we just know it. Another thing here they come, you know Luna can also hear us. We will talk another time, goodbye.” And with that their voices were gone into thin air. I love the stars but to have to repeat myself! But they love it and their information is helpful for me. Also, they consider it to be rude if you don't. 


I saw the two love bird coming and I put on the best stern face I could master at the moment. Luna looked at me with courage, but her eyes said how uncomfortable she was feeling. Draco, on the other hand, looked as if he was fully ready for whatever was going their way. Very quickly I made my “I am utterly pissed off”, face. Now what they didn’t have a clue about, well maybe just Draco was my chat with the stars. As they stood before me (aren’t I great), I reached a point to the tension that I was hoping for because those two looked more worried than to make the situation water under the bridge.

“Want to make this water under the bridge?” I looked at Luna because surely, Draco wouldn’t know what that means.


“Alright then, may I know why neither of you decided to tell me. Knowing that I’m in between both of you? How long did you expect to play monkey in the middle? Draco, I’m the monkey.” I snapped that last part before he could speak.

“Was it because of the differences, because of reputations, or was it because…”

“Look it was all of that, plus the fact that maybe all the people I know will be accusing me of being with Draco.”

“You know something Draco, I want to know all about you, right from your start” Draco looked at me with an unsure look, but after looking at Luna for about 15 seconds, we sat down listening to a brief summary of 15 years. Even Luna gave out gasp and looks that were both meaningful and bewildered (all of the meanings that the thesaurus gives).

“I am completely amazed, especially at the detail of everything. Is this why you’re with Luna though? To make yourself feel better?”

“No and yes. It started out that way, but then, and very quickly, it…me … I just fell and really hard.” I had to laugh. I understood what he meant.
“You are really in it deep aren’t you?” I grinned looking at both of them with sparks in my eyes, literally. 

“Very” He smiled from ear to ear turning bright crimson; Luna just smiled as she gripped herself more into his arms; and I just laughed so hard that four thing happened. I turned purple, I fell towards my back, I rolled on the floor, and I rolled until I reached the lake. Soaking wet I laughed even more at my own ridicule and even more when they tried to help me and slipped twice; one from not stepping right and the other from the wet dirt.

After they had managed to help me, we just fell to the floor and waited for our laughter to become nothing but a voice in the wind. Trying to stand (and trying to ignore the pain in my stomach) my legs choose a good time to go completely numb. You know that feeling of when you try to move a numb body part and you get those funny painful feelings? Well, I was experiencing just that, but twice as much. Looking at both of them with a grin, I awaited a signal from either one of them to head back towards the castle and maybe even our sleeping headquarters.

Forcing my legs towards the castle wasn’t easy. With each step I took, memorizing pain shocked through my entire body. This was positively going to hurt in the morning. Looking both ways and above we made our way to the Ravenclaw tower. 

If I said that we were trying to be as silence than a sitting pickle would be an insult to the silent pickle. The three of us we giggling, laughing every now and then, I fell down like twice because of my screaming legs; one because Draco thought that it was a wonderful idea to make them talk, two because they just hurt like crazy!

“Well Lu this is where we have to drop you off.” I gave her a quick hug “I’ll see you tomorrow at breakfast”. I stepped aside and let Draco say goodbye. Guess how long it took… about two minutes. A little kiss was given every now and then; the words “I miss you already”“I don’t want to leave”“I don’t want you to leave”“I don’t want to leave you” were expressed. I was on the edge of… now me being me, I choose to say something for my amusement and for their embarrassment.

“Just say I DO to the priest why don’t ya” both of them looked at me in a “what?” expression. “Look I’ll make sure that your dad agrees Luna and Draco we can arrange some lessons for your dad, or tell him to fuck off. Whichever you prefer will be fine with me.” They both looked at me then at each other to just laugh in less than two seconds. I joined the laughter after four seconds. Turning around I saw and heard the paintings laughing with us.

“Who’s there?” Shit! Flinch was going to kill us, or turn us into Umbridge. Maybe we could skip Umbridge and head straight for Dumbledore. No we would end up in Umbridge’s office because of the man who looked at her with eyes of admiration. I should really help Flinch clean up his eyes. To my surprise the Ravenclaw Eagle painting opened without hesitation, or wanting a password. As quickly as we could we all went inside and let the door close quietly. Once inside the dark mini hallway that lead to the common room we waited for the footstep that would come from Flinch shoes.

“Who was here!” asked an angered Flinch.

“Just us, laughing about a young girl trying to marry of her cousin to her friend in a humoristic manor.”

“Quite funny actually, haven’t seen that since a 1960!”

“Oh, quite adorable to, you should have been here Flinch.”


There we waited for no more than five minutes before saying a brief goodbye to Luna and checking if Flinch was completely gone. At first Draco was leading the way towards the Slytherin tower, but I caught up with him. Halfway there, I had to break the silence.

“Okay, so how long do you plan to play the blind eye with everyone at school?”

“As long as I can, we both have planned it that way.”

“Well, I can help both of you, especially the days when I’m on patrol. I can also make sure that we don’t get the same days. What do you say?” I looked at him. He was hesitating for a few moments before he finally spoke.

“Alright, but no word goes to anyone else.”

“Alright not a word will come out of my lips.” We stopped to bully the Bloody Baron from what could probably be his sleep. I deeply disliked bullying people or things. More if they are dead and floating around when and where you sleep.

Closing the door carefully I headed towards the bathroom to change into my pj’s and put my hair into a pony tail. Looking around my room I noticed Liberty standing there by a box. Quickly I grabbed a pocket knife from my night stand and opened the box. It was a punching bag, looking at the box again this time reading the small note inside

“Enlargo hope you have fun with it –Easton-”

“I have a fascinating night and my brother sends me a punching bag. Nice.” I grabbed my wand and recited the spell and sure enough I had a pouching bag a yard and a half away from the door.
