At her school, the Magical School of Newt, Leia learned a new magic spell today. The new spell is called an Entropy spell. “The Entropy spell I want to teach you today will make things more chaotic than they were before,” said Mr. Raymond, Leia’s Defence of the Beast teacher.

“What if I want to the backward, I mean the reverse of entropy, make things as normal as before?” asked Sara, Leia’s classmate. “Yes Sara, you can do that too. It has its own unique spell called the Backward Entropy spell.” answer, Mr. Raymond. Almost all of the students were stunned and thrilled. Mr. Raymond then continued. “But, that spell will you learn in the year 6, not now. Sorry” said Mr. Raymond. Every student became sad after hearing Mr. Raymond's words. Then, Mr. Raymond continues to explain the Entropy spell to the student.

After having a beautiful day at school, Leia came back home. When she enters the house, she smells the delicious plate of chicken and ham sandwiches that refills itself. “It is time for dinner!!!” shouted mom. “There you honey, come help me prepare dinner," asked mom to Leia. Leia and his mom prepare dinner at the kitchen table. All the family has already gone down to have dinner.

The entire family gathered around the kitchen table for dinner. After about five minutes of enjoying the food, Leia's dad, Mr. Alatar, started talking. “Leia, I have a special present for you, dear. Tadaaa, the new wand for you because of your unbelievable achievement getting the highest mark and ranking for the past semester!" said dad happily. “Waaahhhhhh!!!” Leia smiled cheerfully.

Suddenly, someone interrupts, “I deserve that wand, Dad, since I have a more advanced subject coming up, and I will be able to use it in my Final Warlock Match,” sighs Leia’s brother, Percy who is currently in the seventh and final year at Newt. “Nooooo! You did not get the highest mark and ranking for the past semester like me! Dad gave it to me! Not you!!” said Leia.

For a moment, it was quiet at the kitchen table. Dad looked at Leia in anger. "Leia, you shouldn't talk like that to your brother," Dad warned. “Alright then, just take it,” said Percy to Leia. After finishing his meal, Percy put away the plate and headed upstairs.

Leia was surprised that she would say that because she is a good girl and she has no idea why her desire to own that new wand increases her ego toward her own brother. As Leia finished eating dinner, she was feeling so guilty for what she had said to her brother. Leia intended to make an apology to her brother right away. However, she procrastinates until tomorrow due to being so tired from school.

The sun streamed through the sheer curtains, the rays bounced to the walls creating abstract patterns thrown about the room. One brassy sound caught Leia’s ear and she woke up to its glare. Eizan, her younger brother, knocked on the door loudly, shouting for her to wake because breakfast was ready. Leia sat up on her bed and that was when she noticed that her room was in a mess. Not her usual clothes-on-the-floor and crumbs-on-her-bed kind of a mess. Her drawers were opened and its content on the floor, her entire wardrobe was strewn all over the room, her vanity table was a palette of her beauty ‘potions’ all broken and in an awful mess. It is as if she woke up in someone else’s room. The first thing that came to her mind was, “Someone broke into my room while I was sleeping!”.

The first person she suspects is her younger brother, Eizan. His habit of entering Leia’s room anytime, including while she was sleeping, and making a mess of it is totally unacceptable. But when she thinks about it again, Eizan never messes up her room like this, especially her vanity table, which was filled with all her beauty potions that were broken and in a mess.

Next, she suspects her oldest brother, Percy. Her confusion grows when she realizes that he rarely comes into her room. The last time he was in her room was last Christmas. Regarding last night's event, she assumes that it was meant as revenge by her brother.

Immediately, she goes to the room of his brother. As she travels, she remembers the traits of her mother. She hates to see messy things, especially in the bedroom. She stopped her footstep and changed her mind. Leia must think critically and out of the box to fix her bedroom as fast as she can before her mother sees it when she is upstairs. Her mother will feel angry if she sees Leia’s current bedroom condition. Also, the fact that her bedroom is in front of the stairs makes her nervous.

Suddenly, Leia remembered the lesson taught by Mr. Raymond about the Backward Entropy spell where she could use it to tidy her room. The idea is good, but Leia has not yet learned how to use this spell. Anytime, her mother will go upstairs to call her for breakfast. She had to think quickly if she didn't want things to get worse.

"Ahaa!!” said Leia happily. She remembers that her brother is in his final year and is supposed to have already learned the Backward Entropy spell. Thinking about last night’s event, she would like to have a negotiation with her brother. Her new wand will be given to his brother if he will use the Backward Entropy spell to clean her room. In this scenario, Leia is feeling guilty and at the same time really wants to help his brother for his final year and the final Warlock match. Also, the fact that her mom will get upstairs anytime, is the scary part. Since her older wand is still in great condition, this negotiation will be more beneficial since she'd prefer not to see her mother angry.

Leia went back to his brother's room and explained everything to him. As soon as Leia told him about the negotiation, he smiled widely and agreed.

“Leiaaa!!!!, came down breakfast, Leiaaa!!” shouted mother. “Otherwise, I came upstairs!!!” shouted Leia’s mother again. Leia heard her mother’s angry voice and gave no response. Leia’s mother went upstairs straight away after getting no response from Leia.

At that time, Leia was in front of her room and as if hiding something from her mom's sight. “There you are, let's have breakfast. What are you hiding, Leia?” said, mother. “Nothing, nothing mom” answers Leia. “Hmm, let me see your room,” said mother. “No no mom, nothing happened, believe me, please..” said Leia. “Move, let me see your room,” asks mom. Mother pushes Leia to the side and sees her room. With a smile on her face, she looks at Leia. “Hmm, your room is OK. What are you hiding from me, huh” said mom. Leia felt weird and straight away looked at ​​her room. Her room is in its normal condition back. There is a wide smile on Leia’s face. “Nothing mom, let's go breakfast," said Leia. Her mom looked at Leia weirdly and said “Owwkaayy, let’s go. Call your brother too for breakfast”, said, mom.

After her mom went downstairs, Leia went straight to her brother’s room. Her brother gets out of his room with a broad smile and a little laugh. “How do you do that spell fast? I mean, I just nego with you and then mom came, then the room was normal back. How?” said Leia. “Your door is slightly open, with that, I can do the spell, easy peasy,” said Percy. “That is cool!!” said Leia. “Now, give your new wand. We already signed a contract. Remember huh?” said Percy. “Yeah yeah, take this. It is yours now. But, don’t show that wand to the father, ok” said Leia. “Alright. Zero-zero huh?” said Harry. “Really!! Thank you. Let’s go breakfast, brother" said Leia with a smile.

The end


Note : This is my first short fiction story ever. This story was inspired by so many novels I read before. Hope you enjoy it ✌️. Below is the in and out of how I made this story :P

Problem Solving

Problem : Her mom will see her bedroom when she is upstairs, so she has to think critically to restore her bedroom to normal as quickly as possible

Solution : Her new wand will be given to his brother if he will use the Backward Entropy spell to clean her room.

Critical Thinking

Issue : Leia must think critically and out of the box to fix her bedroom as fast as she can before her mother sees it when she is upstairs

Logical Fallacies

Appeal to pity

Dad : “Leia, I have a special present for you, dear. Tadaaa, the new wand for you because of your unbelievable achievement getting the highest mark and ranking for the past semester!"

Brother : “I deserve that wand, Dad, since I have a more advanced subject coming up, and I will be able to use it in my Final Warlock Match,”

Ad Hominem

Brother : “I deserve that wand, Dad, since I have a more advanced subject coming up, and I will be able to use it in my Final Warlock Match,”

Leia : “Nooooo! You did not get the highest mark and ranking for the past semester like me! Dad gave it to me! Not you!!!”
