The Daughter of Light And Dark

Revised Prologue

Prologue: Welcome to Essence

The florescent colors of light beamed off the walls and floors of the large room in a familiar frantic pattern. The music blared loudly through the speakers creating a rift of melody and movement. It was a familiar scene throughout the summer. Everyone was dancing and it looked as if they were enjoying themselves without any thought of tomorrow or yesterday. All that mattered was this present; it was filled with friends and laughter. However, not everyone was living in the present. Overlooking the scene was one individual leaning silently over the balcony that overlooked the spacious dance floor and stage. She leaned nonchalantly, but there was a stiffness to her shoulders that revealed her turmoil.

"Hey, doll face, whatcha doing?" a female voice called out after a few moments of watching her overlook the dance floor.

Her luscious pale blond curls swung as she turned her back against the railing to look at the source of the voice. She turned around to face a raven haired beauty that was her cousin Loren. Loren and her family the Corbetts owned a chain of night clubs called The Essence. She sighed.

"Just looking at them," she stated quietly wishing that she was somewhere else.

"I'm sure that's it," Loren replied looking back at her cousin. She didn't want to push her so she said. "It's nice to know that we are the only ones with access to this floor. A little peace and quiet from the noise from those filthy and bloody idiots who call themselves witches and wizards."

The young woman shook her head silently cursing her newly found cousin's Slytherin attitude towards others. Her thoughts were interrupted from a tug.

"What in Merlin's name are you doing?" Loren asked tugging at the golden locks.

"It's charmed to look this way," she replied bringing her hands to swat at Loren's.

"Pick another color, are you intentionally trying to look like a Malfoy," Loren said annoyed.

With a quick flick of her wand, the signature pale blond locks turned to a dark daisy. She made a hand gesture to Loren that mockingly stated, 'Are you happy now?'

"Why hide who you are Mione," Loren asked, not sure why she would even want to hide her beautiful honey brown colored hair.

"I'm not sure anymore," Hermione answered looking back towards the crowd of dancers. She wasn't sure who she was anymore.


Original Prologue

She leaned silently against the wall of the balcony looking down at the dance floor. Everyone was dancing and it looked as if they were all having a great time. No one seemed to notice the blond haired beauty that seemed to overlook the whole first floor of the club.

"Hey doll face whatcha doing?" a female voice called.

She turned around and met faced with her raven haired beauty of a cousin Loren. Loren and her family The Corbetts owned the teenage witch night club called The Essence.

"Just looking at them," she said quietly wishing she was somewhere other then here.

"Yeah it's nice to know that we are the only ones with access to this floor," Loren said, "A little peace and quiet from the noise and those filthy and bloody idiots who call themselves witches and wizards."

She shook her head cursing silently in her head the Slytherin attitude of her newly found cousin.

"In Merlin's name, what are you doing wearing that wig?" Loren said tugging at the golden blond locks.

"It's charmed to look this way," she replied touching her head slightly.

"Pick another color, that color of blond makes you look like a Malfoy," Loren said angrily.

With a flick of her wand the distinctive pale blond bordering on white turned to a dark daisy color.

"Why hide who you are Mione?" Loren asked wanting to know why she would hide her beautiful honey brown colored hair.

"I'm not sure," Hermione answered looking from the crowd of dancers to face her cousin.
