They stared at the screen as the credits rolled up. Neither of them dared say a word; it would break the spell of the magical movie they had just seen.
For Albus birthday, Minerva had arranged that they could be able to watch a movie, and, knowing about Albus' liking of children things, she chose "Mary Poppins". Even Minerva, who did not plan on this, fell in love with the motion picture.
The silence was broken when Albus tried to say the "biggest word they ever heard", according to Mary Poppins herself.
"No, Albus. Super-CALI"
"Supercalifra… What's the rest of it?"
"What are you talking about?"
"It is not correct?"
"We are not in California, neither were Mary Poppins and Bert, I believe"
"Very well, then. I give up. I don't know how they think children can repeat this word…"
"You are probably the only living person, small children included, who have watched the movie and does not know how to say the word. Come on now, Albus, concentrate."
"Repeat after me: Super…"
"Exper... Oops, sorry, Expialidocious"
"See? You can do it. Now say it altogether"
"Supercalifragilisticanditgoesatrocious. Ouch, I can't, Minerva. When I start, I forget the end of the word!"
"Believe in yourself, Albus"
"That's what I'm trying to do! And if you haven't noticed, I still can't say the bloody word!"
Minerva stared at him, confused. She couldn't remember the last time she'd heard him swear.
"Albus", she started softly, as if talking to a child, "You can do it. I know you can. Come on, let's try it again."
"Minnie, my dear, let's please accept the fact that everybody can say 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' except for me."
"You just said it."
"Word? Which word? You mean…"
He looked at her wide eyed.
"I said it! Minerva, I said it!"
"Yes, you did! See, I told you!"
"IIIIIIIIIIT'S… SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS! EVEN THOUGH THE SOUND OF IT IS SOMETHING QUITE ATROCIOUS! IF YOU SAY IT LOUD ENOUGH YOU'LL ALWAYS SOUND PRECOCIOUS…"
"You do not need to sing it."
"Beautiful, beautiful. You can say it. But please, stop singing, Albus. Your singing voice is awful"
"THE BIGGEST WORD I'VE EVER HEARD AND THIS IS HOW IT GOES!OH! SUPERCALIFRAGILISTIC…"
He sang and danced around the room, happily.
"Okay, enough." Minerva stood up and grabbed him by his shoulder and kissed him on the lips, fully.
"Thank you, my dear", he said, smiling, "I was afraid I wouldn't be able to stop singing."
"You're welcome" she kissed him once again.
They fell in a comfortable silence for a few moments, until Minerva's voice was heard:
"So, wanna learn how to say it backwards?"
A.N.: That was completely pointless, but I promised two great friends of mine (that would be you, Tay. And you, Rafa) that I would do something mixing up Harry Potter and Mary Poppins. Hope you guys liked it. And if you haven't seen Mary Poppins yet, do it. A wonderful movie ;D Come on now, repeat after me: Super…
