D.O.M.R.A.D Final

Here is the last chapter. I hope you enjoy it. Sorry for the delay.

L. E. White

Department of Magical Research and Development

Final

The commons was empty except for the staff, who joined the students for dinner before leaving them on their own. Sam, Dave and Walter ended up playing video games while Charity sat outside.

The moon climbed into the sky, and Charity turned around at the sound of footsteps. Sam smiled at her. “Mind if I join you?”

“Depends.” Charity turned back around and leaned her head back to stare up at the moon. “Are you going to hit on me like Dave and Walter did?”

“No,” Sam said. “I think my girlfriend would kick my ass for that.”

Charity chuckled.

“Did both of them actually come out here and try to hook up with you?”

“Yeah. Walter must be used to girls doing what he wants because he just walked up and asked if I would blow him. Dave offered to get me high.”

Sam sat down beside her and shook his head. “Real romance huh.”

Again, she chuckled. “Why are you out here?”

“I just wondered what you plan to do tomorrow. The others are all set to do this and I think I am going to say yes, but you seemed to be questioning it more.”

“I am.”

Breakfast was quiet, with Dave and Walter stealing glances at Charity. She and Sam were talking quietly, and she would giggle every now and then.

The staff joined them after they had finished, and Haley took the seat at the head of the table. “Alright,” she said. “It is now time for you to prepare to head home. You need to understand, if you choose to pass now, you will not be offered another chance. Are any of you ready to make your decisions?”

Charity, Sam and Walter nodded, but Dave sat up straighter and crossed his arms. “Why can’t we have any time to consider this?”

“You do have. I told you we must have an answer before fall session starts,” Haley said. “However, we like to ask before you are bound.”

“Bound?” Walter asked.

“Yes,” Haley said. “We place a binding on you when you agree that will tell us if you tell anyone the truth. It is on you for the entire time you are a student. We remove it after you graduate and are accepted into the organization. We have to place a different binding on you if you are undecided. Same idea, but the spell is different.”

“What does it do to us,” Charity asked.

“Nothing,” Haley said. “It tells us if you tell the secret. That is all.”

“Fuck this,” Dave said. “I am not agreeing to this shit.”

Haley nodded and looked at each of the others in turn.

“I am in,” Walter said. “I want to study here.”

“I want to join,” Sam said. “I don’t need to wait.”

Charity sat for a few minutes, staring at her plate. She looked at Sam out of the corner of her eyes before sighing. “I want to.”

Haley smiled but kept looking at Charity. “You want to what?”

“I want to study here. I don’t need any more time.”

Dave shook his head. “You are all fucking nuts.”

“Catch,” Tom said as he tossed a small blue ball to Dave.

The ball was headed right for Dave’s face. Tom hadn’t thrown it hard or fast, and Dave snatched it out of the air. “What the fu…”

Dave turned blue as the ball seemed to melt into his palm. His eyes widened and he stopped breathing. When he started screaming, everyone in the room covered their ears.

It was over in a few seconds. Dave screamed until his eyes turned purple, then he fell over. The ball reformed in his hand and rolled across the floor away from the table.

“What the hell,” Walter said.

“He made his decision,” Haley said. “And that is how we removed his memories. He will wake up at home and his parents will tell him he got sick on his trip and they sent him back.”

“Don’t worry,” Sam said as he stood up. “He won’t remember the pain and you won’t feel any from the binding spell. Welcome, new students to the Benjamin Franklin University of Magic.”
