Rubik's Cube of Heavens - Chapter 83
Time could cure everything, but it could also cover up everything.
The uproar caused by Coven was gradually forgotten by people as time passed.
Of course, there were still some changes. At least, Coven had become a well-known existence in the entire House.
At first, everyone was excited to be able to talk to Coven for a few words. Gradually, the storm passed and they still maintained a friendly nod when they met Coven.
Even on Slytherin’s side, most of the students gave up on the idea of targeting Coven.
During the Easter holidays, Coven stayed at Hogwarts because he would be in the third grade next year, and he had to learn three elective courses.
There were a total of five elective courses, including divination and divination, magical creature protection classes, muggle research classes, and ancient magic language classes.
All third-year students must take three courses, two of which must be taken in divination.
In the future, when they were in the fourth grade, they could give up one elective course, and the same was true for the fifth grade.
Coven basically didn’t know much about these elective classes, so he needed to temporarily search for information and understand all the elective classes.
After the holiday, Coven finally chose the three courses of the ancient magic language, divination, and magical creatures. He wrote the results into an application and handed it to Professor McGonagall so that the other party could arrange a three-year class schedule for him.
Time passed slowly.
For the final examination results, Coven took first place and got full marks in all subjects.
At the final dinner in Hogwarts, Gryffindor once again took second place. —-Nearly twenty points behind Slytherin.
Although Coven’s score this year was higher than last year’s, Gryffindor once again lost the “Quidditch” competition, and the twins’ night tour and class made a lot of trouble for Gryffindor.
Of course, Snape’s old state relapsed near the end of the term and constantly found reasons to add points to Slytherin and deduct points for other houses.
As the dinner ended, the next day, the students began to leave Hogwarts and return home.
And Coven also spent the second full year in this world.
The night was bright and the castle was mysterious.
The same Sorting Ceremony, the same opening dinner, the same Headmaster’s speech, and… the same Professor’ Defense Against The Dark Arts.
At the beginning of the banquet, Coven’s gaze would occasionally look towards Ravenclaw, staring at the first-year female freshman named Zhang Qiu.
Previously, when Sorting Ceremony was started, Coven had already paid attention to her. After all, she was the second eastern person in the whole Hogwarts apart from him.
With ‘Self-created Golden Finger’, Coven provided himself with relevant information about Zhang Qiu’s memories, which gave Coven a vague idea.
“Hey, Coven.” Wood joked, “Which girl are you looking at? You’re all fascinated by it.”
—-This year, the one sitting next to him was still Wood. He had been beaten up by society on last year’s Hogwarts Quidditch Cup and had been taught a few good lessons by that group of Slytherin.
A year of competition had made Wood no longer act arrogantly but gradually become calm.
At this time, Wood’s teasing made Coven come back to his senses. He smiled and shook his head, explaining, “I am looking at that Zhang Qiu*, oh, you call her Cho Chang.”
[*TL Note: In the Chinese translations of the Harry Potter series, the name “Cho Chang” is translated into “Zhāng Qiū” (in most Eastern languages, the surname precedes the given name), with “Zhāng” being a common Chinese surname and the official pinyin transcription of “Chang”, and “Qiū” meaning “autumn”. —Because her actual name in Harry Potter is made up of two surnames; Korean surname (Cho) and Chinese surname (Chang), the Chinese translation changed the Korean surnames to first name (Qiu)]
“So it is her.” Wood looked at Ravenclaw and nodded in understanding. After being satisfied with his curiosity, he continued to eat.
“Oh right, Wood.” Coven habitually threw the ribs in his hand to the other students. Then he asked Wood, “I didn’t pay much attention to the news during this holiday either. Do you have any news about the professor of’ Magic Defense last semester? And this year’s Cooper Lance.”
“I really have one here.” When Wood was almost done eating, he put down his knife and fork, wiped his mouth with a napkin, then picked up an apple and said, “Professor Christopher Hein passed away last semester.”
“Dead?” Coven widened his eyes in surprise. “How could it be?”
Wood shrugged and said with some disdain and contempt, “Didn’t the news spread last semester? Professor Hein’s lifestyle was not good, so he hooked up with a foreign witch during the holidays. As a result, he was discovered on several boats and was eventually killed by the witch. “
“Alright…” Coven felt very speechless. He then asked, “What about this year’s Professor Cooper Lance?”
Almost as soon as Coven finished speaking, Wood instantly became spirited and excitedly introduced to Coven, “Professor Lance is amazing!”
“Oh?” Coven’s attention was slightly focused, and he was looking forward to this year’s ‘Magic Defense’ professor.
“Professor Lance is the vice-manager of the players of the ‘Puddlemere United’!” Wood said with a longing look, “That is the team I admire the most! I heard that it is also the first team of Dumbledore and Headmaster!”
“A- a team?” Coven was a little dumbfounded.
Originally, he thought that this Professor Lance was special in terms of strength and achievements this year, but it turned out that he was actually a Quidditch player?
The feeling of anticipation that Coven had just had suddenly disappeared.
“Of course!” Wood did not notice Coven’s disappointment. He continued to introduce excitedly, Coven, haven’t you heard of the Puddlemere United team? That is the oldest team in the Quidditch league! It has won a total of twenty-two Alliance Cup championships! Two European Cup championships!
Next, Wood began to explain to Coven non-stop, from the team theme song to the team uniform, from the active players to the famous people in the past.
Even the agents, team management members, and so on were introduced clearly by Wood. It could be seen how much he admired this team.
Coven was not interested in the Quidditch team, and he listened to the whole thing from his left ear to his right ear…
A dull month passed by.
On this day, Coven found an opportunity. On his way out of the library, he met Cho Chang, who had also been left alone.
Coven turned around and greeted Cho Chang, who was a step behind him.
“Hi, hello, senior.” Although Cho Chang had the face of an Asian, she did not have the restraint of an Oriental. She hugged a book and smiled, “I have heard of you, the most influential person in Hogwarts.”
In the past two years, Coven had gotten used to being direct with Westerners, so he accepted Cho Chang’s evaluation with a smile. Then, he said, “May I ask which country in the east you are from?”
“My ancestral home is from China,” Cho Chang replied with a smile. She also observed Coven curiously, wanting to judge Coven’s ancestral home from his appearance.
“What a coincidence! I’m also from China!” Coven had long known about the other party’s information, but in order to find a topic to cut in, he only pretended that he did not know.
“Really?” Cho Chang was obviously excited.
“Do you know Chinese?” Coven smiled and suggested, “Let’s talk in Chinese.”
Cho Chang nodded heavily and changed his English to Chinese. “That must be —-beep!“
The smile on Coven’s lips immediately twitched…
