I was a newly trained owl. I was sitting patiently in my cage at Eyelops Owl Emporium for someone to buy me. I was a snowy owl with a slight darker hint to my feathers. I was in the store for what seemed like ages to me.

This day was like the others. Little did I know that a professor from Hogwarts Witchcraft and Wizardry would buy me. A stern looking man bought me but he seemed nice enough. Although he did smell a bit funny.

The ride to my new home was so fascinating. He walked while talking a bit and I believe he was trying to find a name for me. Finally after about twenty different choices he came up with the perfect name. My new name was Erimentha. It meant Collector of thoughts and determined protector. When we both settled on this name he began to chuckle.

"That's quite odd. I do not need a protector and my thoughts are very collected."

I merely just hooted in reply.

When we had finally reached my new home an old man greeted us at the door. It was Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts.

"Hello Severus."

"Sir." My master said while inclining his head

"I see you have a new owl. What is her name?"

"Her name is Erimentha. It means Col-"

"Collector of thoughts and determined protector. I know. A fitting choice."

It was then I realized I was the new owl of the dreaded potions master.

A/N: Be ready for the next installment, Moving in. That's what it will be called. I hope you all enjoy this. It is quite odd though. Anyway, please review!
