H u n t e r | 17: Goblet of Fire

It was a really good day. I got to spend time with Mey, helping her with homework and telling her my life story. I let out a dreamy sigh, which made me look like Ron after he accidentally drank the love potion. Except that I didn't need a love potion to be crazy about Mey.

And the kiss. How could I not talk about the kiss? I suddenly felt like a sixteen years old boy, who hasn't been with a bunch of girls. One who was super nervous about his first kiss.

By the time I went home, it was hell. I heard screams before I even put the key in the lock. Who would've thought that three girls could make so much noise?! I swung the door open and locked it behind me. "What's going on?" I looked at Nat's red face then shifted my gaze to Jo before it landed on Tay. I frowned. "What is wrong with you?" I approached her with widened eyes as I tried not to cringe. Her beautiful blonde hair was white. She looked like Fred and George in Goblet of Fire. "Did you drink the aging potion?" Damn, how I wished I know where to find Madam Pomfrey. She'd fix it up in a flash.

My sister looked at me as if I went mad. She shook her head and pointed one finger at Nat. "She did this! She swapped my shampoo with bleach!"

"Did not!" Nat yelled back. She turned to face me. "I swear to you, Hunter, I did not swap her shampoo! I didn't even have bleach for fück sake."

"You could buy one just for this occasion, " said Jo with a shrug.

Nat turned to Jo, her face showed shock and sadness. "Not you too, Johanna!" She looked at me with teary eyes. "Please believe me!"

I let out an exasperated sigh and massaged the bridge of my nose, in between my eyes. I didn't know who to believe. Actually, I did. I believed in Jo and Tay, no matter what. But Nat looked so devastated that it was hard for me to put my finger on her.

In the end, I could not pick a side. I wasn't there when it happened and I didn't want to blame anyone. It was better to find a way to fix the mess rather than find who to blame. "Okay, you know what." I cupped Taylor's face and kissed her

oughed. "Fix your hair."

A few noises from inside before the door swung opened, revealing my sister in a blue knee-length dress. "I know!" Tay beamed and stood on her toes as she gave my cheek a kiss. "Ugh, you need to shave your stubble, Hunny Bear."

I chuckled and got inside.

"Are you sure you don't want to come with us?" I asked Nat for the third time as I put my coat on. I felt bad with her staying at home alone. She has been a really good friend lately and it was Christmas. If she couldn't celebrate it with her family, she could always celebrate it with us.

Nat shook her head and smiled. "Nah. I'm too tired. I'll just wait for y'all to come home."

"You sure?"

She nodded. "Yep."

I had a bad feeling about it but it was soon forgotten once Tay and Jo, both holding my hand, dragged me with them once we stepped outside the building.

N a t | 17: Chance

I was cleaning the house when I heard a soft tap on the door. I paused to listen but there was no other sound. I've probably imagined things. But then I heard it again, louder this time. I walked to the front door and peeked from the small peephole. It was the Asian girl.

Anger built up inside of me. Anger and hatred. What should I do?

Hunter and the girls weren't home, so maybe this was my only chance to pull out the damn weed, get rid of her so my love could grow. Maybe this was a sign, maybe this was the chance. I swung the door open with a dangerous smile on my face.

"Oh, it's you."
