This is my first fanfic and I'm not sure how to write it. English isn't my first language so please forgive any mistakes and please tell me about them.
Headmaster Albus Dumbledore was sitting in his office and was dealing with major headache. The cause of this headache was the pain of finding new Defense against the dark arts and History of magic professors.
Because of some parents, Dumbledore was forced to exorcist professor Binns and now he was struggling with finding new professor. Finding a good historian in Britain is incredibly difficult. No one has ever bother learn history since Binns became professor.
To double the problem last year professor Quirrell died. Someone start rumours about the spot and only one who was willing to teach was Gilderoy Lockhart.
A knock on the door tore him from his musings.
"Come in," he call.
A greasy hair man came into the room.
"Ah, Severus, my boy, what can I do for you?"
"Headmaster, I heard you are in need of new professor of History of magic. Am I right."
"Yes, indeed I am, but why are you asking? I have never thought you would like to teach such subject."
Snape had to hold his sneer," no, headmaster I would like to recommend a historian I know."
"Oh," Dumbledore's interested was peaked," and who is this friend of yours?"
Snape smirked," her name is Mirari Heron."
Harry Potter doesn't have the best star of the school year. First a house elf in his bedroom, second closed way to platform 9 3/4 and third journey in flaying car with Ron and their crush with Whomping willow. Definitely not the best start.
They were caught by really angry Snape, who, for some reason, was standing at the entrance hall. Then they were dragged into his office and were scolded by him and professor McGonagall. Thanks to her they were able to attend the feast. The feast was in full swing but it didn't mattered.
Now was the feast near the end and everyone was waiting for Dumbledore's speech.
"Welcome to another school year at Hogwarts! I'd like to say few things before we'll go to bed. First, I'd like to introduce you to our new professor of Defense against the dark arts, professor Gilderoy Lockhart." A big aplaus was heard mainly from female part of students body. Once it died down Dumbledore continue. "I would love to introduce you our new History of magic professor as well, but it looks like she have problems with portkey."
He was suddenly interrupted by soud of opening door. Everyone turn to doors. One wing was slightly open and in the opening was standing a woman. The woman was tall with tanned skin and curly dark brown hair. Her eyes were big and golden with hint of orange. She was little exotic and beautiful. She looked really tired and her light brown trench coat and trousers and white button up shirt were dirty and tore in several places. She held old battered suitcase in one hand and, wasn't that a Dumbledore's hat?
"Headmaster," she called, "next time you send someone a portkey, be sure it has the right direction. This one," she threw the hat on the floor, "took me to the middle of the nest of acromantulas in middle of Forbidden forest. How did they even get here they aren't native in Europe."
Everyone was shock. Teachers looked a bit paler then usual. Before anyone could react madam Pomfrey was running to the woman with Snape, of all people, on her heels.
Dumbledore snap out from his shock and started to apologize.
"I'm really sorry for troubles Mrs.Heron. Please Poppy take care of her."
Madame Pomfrey assured now named Mrs Heron out of the Great Hall. Snape supported her all the time, even took her suitcase.
Once they were out of sight all hell lose. Everyone was talking about what happened. Harry turned to Ron and Hermione.
"Did you see her? Have you seen her before?" asked Harry.
"Never seen her, mate," answer Ron.
"Did you saw, how professor Snape react?" ask Hermione.
"Yeah, that wasn't normal. He's usually a bastard."
"Ron! He's a teacher."
"But it's a true."
Suddenly a loud boom was heard. McGonagall hold her wand ready to shoot another one. It was death silence again and Dumbledore started to speak again.
"I know you have many questions now and I hope to answer them now. Mrs.Mirari Heron is our new professor of History of magic. We had a little bit of trouble with portkey we send her and weren't sure where will she land. It looks like she ended up in Forbidden forest. You don't need to worry, what I know about her, she can take care of herself. If you have any other questions you can ask her tomorrow. Now of you go to bed."
In the Hospital wing
"Please lie down on the bed."
Snape helped Mrs.Heron lie down and madame Pomfrey start casting spells.
"What's your name, dear?"
"Mirari Heron, please call me Mirari."
"Do you know each other?" Pomfrey asked Mirari and Severus.
"Yes, for few years now," answered Severus.
After checking everything and healing few scratches she has, she was sent her to her chambers.
"So, where will I sleep?" asked Mirari.
"With me of course," replied Severus still carrying her suitcase.
"Whatever you say, love," teased Mirari. And follow him to dungeons.
That's all for this chapter please tell me your opinion.
