So there was this fight last night... Dad and I went to see Mum's show. It was weird going there. The place it was at was small. It was like a secret lair. We went down these winding stairs and had to check in with the guy at the door. I think they were hiding from someone. Maybe the Ministry or the cops. Dad said it was very "underground." i'm pretty sure that means exactly what I said. I'm sure they were trying to hide it.

I'm not sure what happened. This girl was talking to the bartender. (The bartender was very cool, by the way. She had dreadlocks... I think I want dreadlocks one day...) I think the owner didn't like her talking to the bartender or something. At least, Dad said it was the owner. Next we knew, he had tapped the girl on the shoulder and thrown a punch. I don't know how she avoided it. It looked like luck. Mum (who started to tell people what was going on) said it was skill. I don't know if I believe her. I don't think anyone could avoid that without luck...

She wasn't so lucky after that, though. One of the bouncers came over. The owner managed to back her into him. That bouncer was huge. I think he might have been part giant. He pushed her hard into the bar (bartender was upset at this point, but no one was listening to her). She'll have a black eye tomorrow and the cut on her head looked bad.

Part of me wanted to help, but I was too scared and Dad was holding on to be too tight. I would have been hurt anyways. I don't think fighting is ever a good thing. But maybe it helped her. I'm not sure they would have stopped 'cause the owner kicked her while she was on the ground.

She rolled into him. I think it was on purpose... and then she grabbed a chair and swung it hard into his head. That probably hurt, but I think it ended the fight.

I still don't know why it happened. I tried to ask, but the bartender wouldn't say anything. They just went back to work (after the bouncer dragged the owner to the back... he was out cold) almost like nothing happened. She looked a bit afraid, but the random girl waved at her like it wasn't important. She took out a cloth, wrapped it around the cut, pulled the brim of her had back down and ordered another drink. No one said a word.

It was really weird. I don't get it. How did violence help? Seems like the owner just got himself some bruises and a headache for tomorrow. He didn't prevent anything. The girl just went on after it was done. I wonder if this happens often for her. I think Dad thought that too. He said she didn't seem phased by it. I think I agree...

In other news, I'm excited that September is almost here. That means Fiona comes to Hogwarts!

Curfew is pretty much when it gets dark in the fall and spring. It gets dark early in the winter, but they still don't like you going outside when it's dark. It's late enough for most people, though. They all do homework and stuff and then go to bed, but I like to do my homework during the day, so I have nothing to do sometimes.
