The walk to town had been a rather uncomfortable one, especially after what happened during the class and Chloe had witnessed her sister’s Boggart. Maybe Lexi should have chicken out, just watch others go over their Boggarts instead of making herself go through that? She didn’t want to worry Chloe, but she knew whatever she was watching was a possibility, a cruel and ironic one, but could still happen. The worst of it all was not being able to predict the future, if she could she could probably avoid it, but did she even want to? She didn’t want to die, she was terrified of the thought, but it had to happen sometime.
After successfully being able to take a cake from the bakery, without her father knowing, Lexi walked back to the school, where the same uncomfortable feeling lingered in the air as it did previously. Making their way to the Spencer’s room, where they probably had more privacy since Lexi was lacking a roommate, the younger Stewart opened the door to her room and put the cake on the desk, took off her shoes and sat on the bed as she waited for her sister. That wasn’t going to be a very cheery conversation, and certain things were going to be mentioned, things she wasn’t sure she wanted to talk about.
The uncomfortable feeling continued to linger, even when Lexi looked at her sister and took a deep breath. How was she going to start the conversation?
“So…class went well didn’t it?” she spoke, trying to lighten the mood, and failing miserably at it. The class was the whole reason why they were having that conversation, it was a bit stupid on Lexi’s part to bring up the class. “I’m alright Chloe, it’s just a stupid fear anyway.” She finally spoke, not wanting to bring too much attention to how her heart raced when she read the medical paper. It was terrifying, anyone would be scared, but she still tried to explain that it meant nothing, just a silly fear.
“But…let’s not tell mom and dad alright? I don’t want them to worry over something insignificant.” They would make a big deal out of it, and even if Lexi explains to them that it was just something that reacted on the person’s fear, they would still want her to do tests to see how her health was, and she passionately hated hospitals.
