This may become a series.
If the Maze Runner protagonists were at Hogwarts with WICKED as the antagonist.
Roaming the halls
Without a destination.
Avoiding the areas commonly visited by Filch and Mrs. Norris.
Curiosity gets the best of him
As he discovers a door he has never seen before.
He opens it and sees an ancient, ornate mirror
With an unknown phrase inscribed at the top.
And he sees himself with his closest friends
happy and free.
Sitting alone at a library table
With his nose in a book.
Researching and learning
About anything related to the Flare that’s sickened his friend.
He remembers Alby’s angry and heartbroken stare at Thomas
In the school hospital wing.
The catalyst he needs to find out everything there is to know
About a virus that welcomed itself through Hogwarts doors.
It was his fifth lap around the Quidditch pitch.
He swoops down to grab a Quaffle.
Tucked firmly underneath his arm
He throws it up
And sends it flying through a large hoop.
He took over as captain
When their leader unexpectedly falls ill.
But it is not the pressures of a leader
That gives him jitters.
She signs off a new letter from her dormitory
And attaches it to her owl.
As she watches the animal fly into the distance
She doesn’t know what she should feel.
Guilty? Powerful? Hopeful?
But her actions have a purpose.
It is for the greater good.
And, of course, the boy she cares about most.
