Raven looked up at the soggy oldman. "Hello Professor."
Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny all mumbled a similar greeting.
Starfire looked from the dripping visitor to Raven. "Who is this watery visitor?" she asked.
"Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts." Raven answered.
"He does not look much like a door," the alien girl remarked.
Everyone laughed, including Dumbledore. He withdrew a wand from his cloak and with a simple, "Evapario," he was dry.
"These are my friends, Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Starfire."
Each of them nodded their head in turn.
"Yes, hello. I am sorry to be rude, but I must speak to Raven." He took a seat across from the pale girl. "I must ask you to wait to ask questions."
He addressed Raven. "You know why you are here and what is going to happen. I will tell you the plan."
"You and your friends will go to Hogwarts for the year.You will masquerade as full-blown witches and wizards. You will be sixth year Gryffindors who have moved into the area. You will go to classes, do homework, and do everything other students do. Then you will be ready whenVoldemort makes his move."
Mrs. Weasley bouught out dinner, but it was ignored.
Dumbledore continued. "Your friends will be given rigged wands.The wands will behave exactly as if their owners were true wizards. They will haveto practice as much as anyone else. They will even have an oppertunity to play Quidditch."
"Your wand will be protected with a spell to prevent you two types of magic from combining. If that were to happen, the results could be catastrophic. It will be your responsibility to teach your friends about the magical world. "
"The term starts September 1.That will leave youone week here. Mrs. Weasley will take you to Diagon Alley tommorrow to pick up your supplies. You will be supplied with sufficient funds for your stay."
Raven nodded uncertainly. "I will explain all this to my friends later. But right now,I am very hungry. Let's eat and we can work out details later."
And with that, they ate.
It isn't as long as I had hoped, but it will do.Reviewers areauthors' friends....
