A Bright Entry

Post by Aidan De Gaule on Wed Aug 26, 2015 6:10 am

At last, Aidan made it to Paris. Two weeks before school started, he took the train from Marseille to the City of Lights. As it was 2 AM and he had no idea where to start, he read his letter again, searching for an adress of the self-proclaimed "prestigeous" school. Now that he knew where to go, he decided to ask a passerby.

"Excuse me, sir...", Aidan said, while pointing to the adress on the parchment.

"Never heard of it before." A rather dull response. Maybe someone else?

Out of the corner of his eye, he saw a café at the other side of the street. "La petit dragon"... He decided to go in. It looked quite crowded, so maybe someone knew?

Apollo was having another happy day...as always...Sometimes even he questioned his unexplained outbursts of happiness. He had the urge to go out and hang out with people. He was accepted by the school of his dreams after all...he had to search for new friends there.

Friends...yeah...Apollo always had the need to be around a lot of people. He was a natural extrovert...he had to meet a lot of people. So he went to his all-time favorite restaurant, Le Petit Dragon.

As he got inside the restaurant, he saw a guy who seemed younger than him...he could tell that there was something off about him. Probably he was lost...If so, he had to help. Apollo can never turn down a chance to help somebody. It's kinda his nature...

He said with a rather happy tone in his voice: "Γειά σου, dude! Would you like me to help you?".

Aidan looked up at the guy. He didn't look that much older than him, but since he asked...

"Uhm... I'm kind of lost here... I just arrived last night and I'm looking for this place here." Aidan pointed to his letter. "Help a brother out, please? Nobody here gave me even as much as a second look..."

Apollo knew it! He needed his help and now he's gonna help him...However he was kinda shocked to hear that nobody else helped...

He patted the boy's back and said cheerfully: "Sure thing, bro! That's the Beauxbatons, school for wizards you're looking for! I just got accepted there too. I can help you!"

Aidan smiled a tired smile, having stayed awake through the entire night.

"So... Are you Italian? You sound Italian, but also not really... Also, you said you just got accepted too. How can you help me?"

Apollo surely loved making people smile. And that boy's smile was surely a good reward.

"Ehhhmmm...Not really, I'm Greek." He said and laughed. "I mean I can show you where the school is. We can help each other out, I guess!"

He gave his hand to the young boy: "I'm Apollo, nice to meet ya."

"Aidan De Gaule, great to meet you! I just arrived last night here, and I've never been to Paris before. No city, actually, except for Nice and Marseille. I'm from the Provence, in case you were wondering. I really miss the Mediterranean Sea already, since the Seine is so dirty and cold, and..." Aidan managed to stop himself, realising that the older boy probably didn't care. "And I need to stop now..." Great. I managed to embarrass myself within three minutes... "Uhm... So what are we going to do now?"

Apollo was really excited to meet a new Parisian.

"I live here for my whole life...My parents moved to Paris after their marriage." He said.

"I love the Mediterranean...I go every summer to Greece and it's so cool! I love swimming. It's the perfect place for me!" He said in a rather cheerful tone.

He really wanted to make new friends and Aidan seemed perfect. But what could they do...they know almost nothing about each other...

"I don't know really...but it would be nice to learn about each other. In case we'd become friends." Apollo said.

"Uhm, well, I'm a beach enthousiast, I got my diver's licence at the age of 7, learned I could use magic five months ago and have been studying spells and magical plants ever since, just so I didn't have to start in the first year. So, where do you go swimming? Isn't the nearest sea the cold, cold North Sea? Or do you actually go swimming in the Seine?"

Although Aidan was tired, he noticed the efforts Apollo did to strike up a conversation. And he was grateful for it. He knew absolutely nobody over here, and nobody ever prepared him for the gigantic city here. He also realised he had no money at all with him, since the train was so damn expensive...

"A beach enthousiast? Awesome!" He exclaimed cheerfully.

"I love beaches and sea and everything like that! Diver's licence at 7?"

That one confused Apollo the most...how could it even happen? He was amazed by the fact that Aidan was such a good diver...Apollo always loved swimming, but never really tried diving anywhere.

"Wow, that's so cool! I've never met such a good diver before!"

"Well, I discovered my magical powers at the age of 10 and I went to a magic academy at the outskirts of Paris when I was 11. But it wasn't really a good one, so I applied for the Beauxbatons one, here."

"Just like I told you, I love swimming. During the summer I mainly visit Greece and swim there. And during the winter I prefer to swim in pools. But I do some pretty crazy things as well, like swimming in the Seine." He said and laughed.

"I don't really think of things through before acting...It's kinda natural to me."

Aidan blinked. "Although I do know how to drive, I got my diver's license at 7."

Right. Pools existed. Last time he had swum in a pool, however, he was still in elementary school...

"So, there was this other thing I wanted to ask you about. This letter says that "You must have a wand, the following books, a cauldron, the following ingredients..." Where do you find all that? The only wands I ever saw were plastic, and I've never heard of these books..."

Apollo didn't really know the answer to Aidan's question either...

"I believe that we have to ask the Ministry of Magic for that. They can help us."

Apollo felt the need to tell Aidan about himself...just to make things more comfortable...

"Well as I said, I am Apollo. I'm 16 years old and I discovered my magic powers at the age of 10. Ehhm...I love traveling, history, swimming, soccer...and all kinds of meat!" He laughs.

"Would you like to hang out with me sometime? It'd be nice to have a friend, here" He said rather warmly as he tried to be friendly. He wanted to have more friends, there...

"Oh... Well, uhm, I'm vegetarian, this is the most far I've ever gone, I always fell asleep during class, and I never really got why people like soccer so much. I never really liked it either, so maybe that's why... I do love diving and surfing more than anything else, though. And how exactly can we contact the Ministry?"

Aidan knew that he didn't really like anything the Greek did, but no sense in lying when you meet someone, right?

"A vegetarian? We-ell...I could never be a vegetarian. I love meat!" He said and giggled.

"For me it depends...I love history and some other classes, but I also hate maths and physics....Ugh...When taking these classes, I think I'll die of boredom." He said as he laughed and patted Aidan's back.

"Ehhhmm...I love soccer! The adrenaline, the running, the strategy...It's so awesome~! I like swimming, but haven't really tried diving or surfing in my life. I guess I should try them someday..." He said and thought of the possibilities...could he actually do these sports? They seemed really complicated. However, he loved the water, so they couldn't be that tough...could they?

"To contact them, you should write a letter! Hmmm... I know how to send magical letters, if you'd like to send one!" He exclaimed in a helpful tone.

Apollo understood that the younger boy had only a few similarities with him...However that's what makes some friendships really interesting, he thought.

After having written the letter, Aidan finished his coke and decided to finally ask: "Hey, uhm, so do you have a place I can crash? I've been up since yesterday this time to catch my train, and then I was too excited to sleep, and now, well, I just feel like I could pass out at any moment..."

Apollo laughed:
"Of course, you can go to sleep in my house. Although I think we'll live in dorms from the beginning of the school year. Cool, huh?"

Apollo brought Aidan to his house and then to his room. "You can sleep on my bed if you want", he said with a smile on his face.

"Thanks, dude. Seriously, thank you."

After carelessly tossing his stuff away in the corner of the room, he fell down on the bed, barely being able to think after 26 hours of staying awake, and he thought to himself before closing his eyes:

"Maybe Paris isn't all that bad... At least, the people here aren't."

With a smile on his face, Aidan De Gaule fell asleep.

"You're welcome, man."

Apollo walked out of the room and let Aidan sleep on his bed. He knew Aidan for just a day, but he had a good feeling that they were going to become good friends...
