Prologue

To Erin Murdagh-

Her name is Abbey. Normally, I would never ask you to do anything like this, but you were the only one of my friends that could keep a secret. You were my best friend at school; I know you will be a good mother to Abbey. If nothing else, just protect her and send her to Hogwarts. I know that you and Michael Mason are getting married and he might have to move back to the States, but give her at least one year at our old school. We are leaving with our son because he is in danger, now so this letter must be cut short. Please tell her who we are, but leave her brother out of the story, and tell no one else.

Yours truly,

Ellie
