Letter from an Owl

Dawn only woke up after she heard a terrible noise coming from downstairs. As quickly as she could she put on her blue slippers and scurried downstairs. The first thing that met her eyes was the sight of Anya shaking and an owl standing on the table.

'What is going on?' said Dawn.

'Did I ever tell you that I'm afraid of owls as well as bunnies?'

Dawn fought hard to prevent herself laughing out loud. With Anya still retreating because of the animal, Dawn took a letter that was on the table and began reading it slowly.

- The reputation of the slayer has spread far and wide and after founding out your great deeds I've decided to offer you, Buffy Summers, the post of the DADA professor in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

P.S You can also take your sister with you.

Albus Dumbledore -

A tinge of excitement washed through Dawn after reading the letter that the mysterious Albus Dumbledore sent.

'What is Hogwash school about?' asked Dawn.

'It is not called Hogwash but Hogwarts. It is simply a place where young witches and wizards learn magic and spells. There are four houses- Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. I was sorted into Slytherin by the sorting hat for unknown reasons.' said Anya, and then put on a smile as her mind wandered to a different time long gone.

'This is getting a bit difficult to digest with all those strange things you are telling me about Hogwash- I mean, Hogwarts.' replied Dawn.

'We better tell Buffy.'

After the exclamation of those words Anya and Dawn went to the garden.


Meanwhile Buffy was in the garden training as usual with Giles to improve her slaying skills. The weather was often sunny but today it seemed it could rain at any minute. But that didn't prevent the potential hoards of supernatural evils that may come any minute in the night.

Buffy pointed at the paper that Dawn was holding, 'Are you using Willow's spells again?'

'No.' said Dawn, with a hint of sarcasm.

After being given the letter Buffy stood stupefied.

'I don't get it. I've never heard of this school and now they want me to teach there. What if it's a trap of some evil forces?'

'You should go there,' remarked Giles, who had now emerged from the background, ' I went to Hogwarts when I was very young.'

'So, you are a wizard! If you had used magic then you could had saved us lots of troubles-'

'So we are going!' shouted Dawn, full of excitement.

When Buffy put on one of her serious expressions Dawn's mood sank like the titanic.

'What about all the vampires and demons that will be roaming the streets at night. And how about some evil dark forces- How am I going to prevent it?' said Buffy.

'I'm sure there are no evil forces at work in Sunnydale and the rest of the Scooby Gang can put out the ordinary evils.' said Giles

'I trust Giles, so what do you say?' Dawn's excitement was rising by the minute.

'Hogwarts, Here we come!'
