THE INTERNATIONAL STATUTE OF TRANSPARENCY

"On this day, the thirteenth of June of the year two thousand and thirty four, in the spirit of honesty, safety and the equality of all mankind, the magical population and the non-magical population will no longer remain hidden from one another, but will be unified as one. Rather than withholding from one another, we today take a step toward a better future, as the union of two such extraordinary cultures and resources promises a betterment in quality of life for all. This statute applies to every living being that is capable of thinking and reasoning for itself. Either Discrimination or Deceptiveness in respect to the statute are both considered the highest form of noncompliance in all countries involved, and are punishable as treason. Every world leader, both magical and non-magical, have signed this statute in agreement that Transparency between the respective communities of the world is the best path toward knowledge and peace."

ince she had started getting better articles which took up every single minute of her day, Aoife had begun to appreciate the value of her free time. This morning, on her first absolutely free day off in what seemed like forever, she had already visited her mam and her brother Tag back home, baked brownies, cleaned her apartment, gone food shopping and walked her elderly neighbour's dog. So all in all, she'd been fairly productive (especially considering this was Aoife, who used to be the biggest procrastinator ever). Only now she was exhausted and hungry, so she apparated to the first place she thought of where she could buy food, Hogsmeade. Days off were the best. She walked along the street without paying much attention to where she was going.

Only then it suddenly began to rain, and she headed for cover. The nearest place was Florean Fortescue's, coincidentally. And although she knew they didn't sell anything particularly savoury or substantial, she joined the queue anyway, deciding that she wasn't enough of a mature adult to not eat ice-cream for lunch, or to not eat ice-cream based on it being pouring down with rain. She was smiling widely as she waited - Florean's used to be the best job ever. At least, that was what she thought now that she had a super stressful, time consuming job, and could look back to her school days through rose-tinted glasses. But working at the Prophet generally didn't get you free ice-cream, that much was true - it really sucked.

"I'd recommend the raspberry and chicken curry," she noted casually to the person next to her in the queue. "Sounds nasty, but it's actually surprisingly delicious." And Aoife had worked at Florean's for four years, and tried every single ice-cream flavour and combination there was. So she considered herself qualified to rate and recommend them. She was a total ice-cream connoisseur. Today she'd probably go for the classic herbal tea flavour. She fiddled with a lock of her hair absentmindedly, looking into space for a while before she actually realised she'd been talking to somebody else, and looked up to see a girl probably a few years younger than her. "Oh, hey."

Lilianne had to get out of that castle. It was just too big and overwhelming. At first she had been amazed at how wonderful it all was, but when she quickly found out that she couldn't take the same route to class because the stair ways changed, it put her on edge. She was the type that needed a routine, and Hogwarts wasn't allowing her to have that. She was excited when the weekend came, because that allowed her to get out of the castle, and get some fresh air. She hated going outside at Hogwarts because, one it was a giant hassle, and two, it took hours just to get from one place to the other and by the time she was at the place she wanted to be, she had to go and return to her dorm for curfew, and it just wasn't going well. Lilianne had decided to skip the giant halloween bonfire and corn maze extravaganza because number one she didn't know anyone, and number two, who wanted to go to a school event by themselves? So she sat in her dorm all night and listened to the fun outside by her window.
<p>
Lilianne wouldn't skip out on Hogsmeade for the world. Sure it was quiet a walk, but it allowed her freedom from the stuffy big castle. It was nearing lunch time, and what place to go than Florean Fortescue's. Ice cream was the perfect way to start the day. And maybe while she ate, she could get some sketching done in her drawing pad. She hadn't drawn anything in the longest time, and the castle was a perfect way to get back to drawing. It was then one of the customers in line started talking nonsense about a weird flavored ice cream. Lilianne just had in mind that she would get plain mint chocolate chip But no. This girl was talking Raspberry and chicken curry. She made a weird face. Because that wasn't a real ice cream flavor. But as she looked closer, she noticed that the signs on the menu weren't normal flavors. She noticed Bertty Botts every flavor beans, Pumpkin Juice, the chicken curry, raspberry, and butterbeer. And suddenly Lilianne wondered why she wanted to be in this world. It was strange and not normal.
<p>
She said, "This is not normal. I just want plain chocolate. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?"
<p>
It wasn't this girls fault that the world was now a different place. It wasn't this girls fault that Lilianne had chosen to leave her own family. She breathed in a deep breath and turned to the girl.
<p>
She said, "I'm sorry. I'm just having a hard time adjusting to this world...."
<p>
Surly this girl was nice and understanding. Surly she wouldn't take out her little melt down personally.

oife frowned. "Well, I guess you could, but that kind of defeats the point of coming to this shop," she hummed. "I mean... oh hang on, are you a muggleborn?" That would make more sense - she remembered her first time in Hogsmeade in third year, and how strange all the odd new flavours had seemed to her then. She had adjusted quickly, though, deciding to go with the butterbeer flavour. And it lived up to the hype. "Wizard ice-cream really isn't that bad, honestly - well actually, it's ten times better. Besides, chocolate? Everyone knows strawberry is the best." Even before Hogwarts, Aoife had considered herself some sort of connoisseur. She had been determined her village had the best ice-cream in the world, at least until she came to Hogsmeade in third year.

But this girl was too old for third year or whatever, though. She must be a sixth or seventh year, surely? Aoife was confused - what was she on about? "Is this really your first time getting ice-cream here?" If so, it was a travesty, and Aoife felt sorry for her. No, surely everyone at Hogwarts from third year had visited Hogsmeade, before. Perhaps this girl was an exchange student or something? That still wouldn't explain why she seemed so bewildered by the list of flavours on the wall. They must have ice-cream in the rest of the wizarding world.

A hard time... adjusting to this world? That was when it clicked. Aoife beamed. "You're one of the muggles!" she exclaimed. No, that didn't sound very good. "Oh... I didn't mean for it to sound so accusatory. It's just - I'm a journalist, and I've been covering a lot on the Statute, and... well, this is like meeting a celebrity!" She grinned. It would be embarrassing now if it turned out this girl wasn't actually one of the muggles after all. But Aoife was constantly embarrassing herself, so she just looked back at the girl. "How are you finding everything so far?" It sounded like it was difficult to adjust, as Aoife could imagine. Although, when she'd started the school in first year, she'd gotten into the swing of things almost immediately. It must be difficult being one of fourteen muggles in a huge school full of wizards.

That was, if the girl was a muggle as Aoife suspected she was.
