Chapter One: Invitation
It was a fine summer day, in August, and while most children were outside playing, three teenaged boys were lounging about inside the Kame Game Shop, bored out of their minds.
"There's absolutely nothing to do! We're in a GAME shop and there is NOTHING to do! How is that even possible?" Malik complained.
"Forget that, the heat is horrible!" moaned Ryou. Malik smirked at him.
"Egypt is much worse, trust me." This got him a weak glare from Ryou. Yugi had been silent throughout this discussion. In fact Yugi had been unusually quiet lately. Ryou and Malik had noticed but didn't want to bother Yugi about it, but now it was getting them worried.
"Uh, hey, Yugi?" Malik asked lightly.
"Hm?" Yugi replied.
"Are you okay?"
"Of course, why do you ask?"
"Well, it's just that you've been kind of distant lately and Malik and I were getting a bit worried about you. You know you can tell us if anything's wrong, right?" Ryou said gently. Yugi shifted uneasily. There had been something bothering him lately. It's just if he told anyone, they'd think he was insane. But this was Ryou and Malik, his best friends and adoptive brothers. Besides if anyone knew about insanity it would be Malik. So it couldn't hurt to tell, right?
"There has been…something going on with me. You're going to think I'm crazy if I tell you though," he trailed off.
"Ha! You're not the only one!" Malik got smacked by Ryou because of this statement, "Ow! I mean, you can tell us, we won't abandon you or anything."
"Alright, um, have either of you two been feeling weird lately?" Yugi asked timidly.
"What do you mean by weird?" Ryou asked.
"Well, like feeling angry even though you aren't angry?"
"Huh?" Malik said with a puzzled expression.
"Like, remember a couple of days ago, a little boy came into the game shop and his mom wouldn't buy him what he wanted?"
"That bratty little kid who threw a fit right there on the floor?" Yugi nodded at Malik.
"When he got all upset…I felt it too. I felt so angry and sad that I couldn't get the game. And I shouldn't have felt that way, especially since I never liked that game anyway."
"Are you trying to say…you felt what the little boy felt?" Ryou was getting a little worried about the whole situation.
"Not the just the little boy, I've been feeling Grandpa's frustration and Malik's boredom! It gives me such head aches," Yugi was in tears by now. He was so confused and scared, not to mention tired. Ryou went up and held the distressed boy.
"Don't worry Yugi, there has to be a reasonable explanation for our problem." Ryou murmured. Yugi glanced up at his white haired friend.
" 'Our'?" Ryou gave Yugi a small smile.
"Yes, 'our'. I've been going through something like that too."
"You've been feeling stuff, too?"
"More like seeing things."
"Sometimes people give off a weird glow and everybody's glow is different. Like, Malik's a dark purple and yours is a pale golden color. And sometimes I see things that haven't happened yet or did happen but to someone else…it's very weird."
"This is very interesting, not to mention freaky…well, aren't we just a bunch of weirdos? I can hear things, in my head. Like whispers and sometimes I understand what they're saying and sometimes I don't." Malik said with a grin. Yugi and Ryou smiled back. Yes, this was a very interesting situation for them. All of them wondered why they weren't more bothered by their revelation. If it had happened to anyone else, they would've been in a state of panic, yet this young trio were okay and calm with the new information. It was very odd indeed.
Meanwhile Somewhere Else…
Dumbledore was sitting comfortably in a soft arm chair. He had just sent three invitations to Hogwarts to three very special boys. They will, hopefully, accept and become Hogwarts 6th year students. They were necessary, very necessary. Dumbledore smiled to himself as he wrote another letter for someone else. If these boys were to join, they would need a special Defense Against the Dark Arts professor. And he knew just who it was going to be. She might be young and just a tad inexperienced in teaching, but she'd be perfect for the job.
Back at the Kame Game Shop
Malik, Ryou, and Yugi were sitting on the living room couch watching television. Suddenly, there was a tapping at the window. Yugi got up to open the window and in swooped a tawny owl. Tied to its leg, were three thick envelopes, each with a wax seal with four different animals on it: a lion, raven, badger, and serpent.
"Hey, guys, we've got mail." Yugi giggled as he handed over the envelopes to their rightful owners. His read:
Mr. Y. Motou
Largest living room couch
Kame Game Shop
Domino City, Japan
The others envelopes were addressed in the same odd manner. They each looked at each other curiously as they broke open the wax seal. Although they didn't know it, this letter was different than most letters the would be Hogwarts students received. These letters were written by Dumbledore himself.
of WITCHCRAFT and WIZARDRY
Dear Mr. Motou,
I have sent this letter as an invitation. I wish for you to join and become a student of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Here you shall learn various magical practices. The school term starts September 1st . Write whether or not you agree to join us at Hogwarts on the back of this parchment and send it back with the owl. If you agree, I will send someone over to come and pick you up and help you get your school supplies. I sincerely hope you'll consider my proposition.
Albus Dumbledore, Hogwarts Headmaster
Yugi was shocked, to say the least. First, his weird talent of feeling other people's emotions, then to find out that Ryou and Malik were going through something similar, and now this! Malik seemed excited though.
"Let's go! It sounds like fun!" he cried excitedly.
"But, it's a fluke! Magic can't be real!" argued Ryou.
"Then explain our weird talents."
"I…I can't. What do you think, Yugi?"
"I think…we should probably tell grandpa about this." Both Ryou and Malik nodded in agreement and the three took off to talk to Grandpa Motou. After they explained everything to him, they waited for him to have a heart attack out of shock. What they heard next was unexpected. He laughed.
"Yugi, your parents went to this school! In fact, Ryou's parents and Malik's sister went to this school, too! Why didn't you tell me what was happening to you? I could've saved you a lot of misery." Grandpa Motou chuckled. Yugi blushed in embarrassment.
"I don't know…so are we going to go?" Yugi inquired.
"Of course you are!" Malik let out a whoop of joy.
"Hogwarts, here we come!" They all wrote back and sent the owl back with their responses. Now, they had to wait to see what tomorrow would bring.
Back at Somewhere Else…
Oh joy! They had accepted their invitations. Now, if only she…an elegant blue black phoenix flew in carrying a slip of parchment.
Alright, Albus. I'll go along with this little scheme of yours. I have nothing better to do anyway. But, just to let you know, I hate the idea of teaching bratty children. That means, you owe me big time.
The New DADA Professor
P.S. Uck, even the title tastes strange in my mouth. Can you tell how excited I am?
Dumbledore chuckled. His friend has always been a little rough around the edges. Dumbledore leaned back in his armchair, this year was going to be an eventful one, indeed.
