Chapter One


Dawn Summers sat at the head table in the great hall at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After completing her watcher training Giles had thought it best to send her here. Willow cast a spell that told of four Slayers at Hogwarts. Giles had sent an owl. Dawn couldn't believe it an owl to Professor Albus Dumbledore who is the headmaster at Hogwarts. They came to an agreement that Dawn would become the new Defense against the dark arts teacher after all the experience she had in Sunnydale. Willow had also been teaching her Wicca and now she was at an average level for magic and an experienced fighter from having trained with Buffy and Faith.

Dawn watched as the students piled in. Some of them gave her weird looks of confusion she could understand. They were probably wondering what a 17 year old was doing sitting at the teachers table.

The doors opened and an old woman she had learned was named Professor McGonagall lead what she assumed were the first years into the great hall. The sorting ceremony began when an old looking hat began to sing. Then McGonagall called names the first on the list was Kristy Abrams who was a Slytherin and the last was Monica Wymann who got into Hufflepuff. Dumbledore then got up to make his announcements.

"Welcome new and old faces just few announcements. The Forbidden forest is as always forbidden. The caretaker Mr. Fitch would like me to inform you that no magic is to be used in the corridors outside of classes. And I would like to introduce our new defense against the dark arts teacher Miss. Dawn Summers."

Dawn smiled and gave small wave.

"Now tuck in." and with those words Dumbledore sat down and food appeared in front of them.

"Professor can you tell me why I'm getting the evil eye from Mr. tall dark and pasty." Dawn asked leaning over to talk to Professor Dumbledore.

"Only if you call me Albus." He said and when she nodded he continued." That's our Potions master and he seems pretty upset that he got past over for your job my dear." He said then went back to eating.

Dawn scanned the crowed of students and almost fainted when she saw one of them with pale blonde hair. She looked closer and realized that it wasn't spike when she saw the grey eyes. She grabbed Dumbledore's arm.

"I'm sorry Albus but I have to go." She said then stood up and left the great hall.

Just thinking about Spike and Angel made her cry. The whole Fang Gang had died fighting Wolfram and Heart. She decided to go over and sit by the lake.

"Spike I miss you so much." Dawn hugged herself and just let the tears fall.

"I can make you the pain go away." A voice said from behind her. She turned and saw a vampire.

"Oh like I've never heard that one before." Dawn said as the vampire lunged she staked him easily. "Not even that will lift my mood." She muttered looking at the pile of dust.

She stood up and yawned. She figured that she wasn't going to get much done tonight so she headed up to the castle to go to sleep.
