Prologue,

Lily Evans stumbled into her bedroom and fell onto her bed. She cried heavily into her pillow and kicked her feet on her bed. "Why?" she cried. "Why?"

"Lils, we're going to take Petunia to her play!" Lily just cried harder. "Do you want to come?"

"NO! LEAVE ME ALONE!" Lily screamed. She heard her mother walk off. Shortly after she heard the crunching of gravel as they drove off. She cried into her pillow, kicked her feet and screamed but nothing made her feel any better.

I don't want to be alone anymore a voice hissed. Lily looked up from her pillow.

"Hello?"

Talk to me, Lily.

"Who are you?" Lily asked, rubbing her eye with her palm.

Are you alone, Lily?

"Yes," Lily answered. "My sister is in the spotlight of my parent's eyes, nobody likes me at school. I feel so alone." She stood up and began looking around for some clue as to where the voice was coming from. It was soothing in a way. Calm and cool. A man's voice. She didn't know why she continued talking to it when every bit of her judgment was telling her to leave the room.

I was alone all my life, the voice said. Why are you alone at school?

"Because I'm different." Lily said quietly. "I can do things others can't."

How old are you?

"Sixteen, seventeen in a few days."

What can you do that others can't?

"I've always excelled in every subject with ease. I can perform spells faster then anyone in class, everybody avoids me because they say I'm too smart."

I was too smart. The voice said bitterly. They spurned my genius. Until I found a small gathering of people who were too afraid. I understand you, Lily.

An owl swooped in through the window with a scarlet envelope. Lily recognized it to be a howler.

She opened it. The loud echoing sound of James Potter's voice filled the room declaring love.

Friend of yours? The voice asked mildly after it was done.

"A boy that won't leave me alone." Lily said angrily. She sat heavily at her desk and wrote an angry letter back to him. When she sent it off she sat on her bed and sighed.

"Lily! We're home!"

"My parents are back." Lily groaned.

I have to leave.

"Will I be able to talk to you again?" Lily asked.

I'll be here whenever you need me.

"What should I call you?"

Angel. The voice answered after a long pause.

"Angel." Lily repeated. "Goodnight, Angel."

Meanwhile a cloaked figure watched the red haired girl crawl under the covers and fall asleep. He put a pale hand on the glass orb and a smile spread across his lips. "She's powerful." He said. "She could be of great use to me."

"She's a mudblood." A cloaked and masked figure said angrily. "We should kill her now!"

"No! She could be very useful to me in the future." The man's scarlet eyes flashed. "Now leave me."

"Yes, my lord."

The Lord intertwined his long slender fingers and rested them close to his thin lips. 'Soon, Lily, you will be completely under my control'
