The Other Potter.. chapter one

Harry Potter woke to the gentle pitter patter of rain splashing on the windows. He had a weird feeling he was being watched. He looked around his room and gasped. There was a girl sitting on his dresser with long black hair, piercing green eyes, and a lighting shaped scar on her forehead. "Who are you? Why are you here?"

"Who am I? Don't you see the resemblance?" the girl asked.

"Err no not really, but you haven't answered me. Who are you?"

"I am Madeleine Potter. My name is spelled M-a-d-e-l-i-n-e but pronounced mad-a-lyn. I came here to find you, Harry. It's probably hard for you to believe but I am your sister. After Voldemort killed our parents I was sent to a muggle orphanage. I got my letter this year. I'm sorry to barge in on you like this but I really wanted to meet you, to meet my brother."

"Hold up. You say you're Madeleine Potter?" Harry asked.

"I prefer Maddie. But yes, yes I am." The girl said.

"But I... Mum and Dad... Voldemort... You can't be... I can't have..." Harry was at a loss for words. His eyes were rapidly searching the girls face.

"A sister?" The girl looked hurt. She finally looked down and said, "How can you explain the scar? I thought I was you sister. Dumbledore told me. He said I have a brother, Harry Potter; he lives at Number 4 Privet Drive, Little Whining Surry. I guess I was wrong. I'm sorry I bothered you." She turned to the window but before she did Harry saw a glistening tear roll down her cheek.

"Wait!" Harry couldn't control his feelings. He felt connected to this girl. Like a sister, as she said. "You say you're a Potter and I see your scar. You have black hair and green eyes. I see the resemblance. I just didn't think I could have a sister."

"No one knew about me. They kept me hushed up. You were one, but I was 11 weeks old. They thought I died. But Mum put me wrapped in a blanket under the bed. She was reaching to hide you next to me when Voldemort entered. She turned to fight him. Then there was a blinding green light. She gave up her life to save us. Well we are both protected by love. So Voldemort found me and preformed the killing curse. It back fired, same as it did to you. He then turned and preformed the curse on you. It back fired again. That's how he lost all his power. Both of us combined." The girl paused and stared at Harry, "You went to the Dursleys and I was found 1 week later by our neighbor Ms. May. She got married and couldn't keep me any longer so she sent me off to an orphanage. Well Harry this is all a shock to you. I don't expect you to believe me. It's okay if you don't."

She turned towards the window getting ready to leave when Harry said, "Now where do you think you're going? I won't let my sister go out into the cold night. You're just going to have to stay here."

The girl turned with a huge smile on her face. "Thank you Harry."
