Emily Grace stopped outside the Great Hall; she couldn't go any further… it was just… too much. "I'm here beside you the whole time," Sirius whispered in her ear and quickly regretted it. Was he being too forward? He already knew he wasn't good enough for Emily Grace! Oh, what was the point of living without Emily Grace's love. Emily Grace knew him; the real him, the him only she ever saw. The kind, sensitive, emotional, poetic and artistic Sirius Orion Black.

The doors of the Great Hall flew open like magic… wait, it was! Emily Grace would have to learn to control her amazingly super magical powers that no-one else had if she were to fit in at this school… and to make sure that no-one found out her deep, dark secret.

Emily Grace took a deep breath and stepped into the Great Hall. There was a loud clash as one thousand five hundred and fifty six knives and forks fell to the floor in shock. "OH EM GEE!" shouted one Hufflepuff.

"Hi, I'm James Potter," a raven-haired boy said, holding out his hand for her to shake.

"Oh, I'm-"

"Emily Grace," James interrupted.

"How do you know?"

"Sirius hasn't stopped talking about you since you got off the train," He said with a smile.

"Oh, in that case… my name is Emily Grace but you can call me… Emily Grace!" Emily Grace replied with a perfect blush that complimented her creamy white skin. James took her slender hand and lifted it to his lips.

Emily Grace looked around the Great Hall and her gaze stopped on one boy, sitting at the Slytherin table. There was a crash of thunder and a bolt of lightning and the boy turned to look at her too. "That's Snape; he's BAD news," James said, shuddering. Snape was staring at her with something she knew all too well… was it lust?

"There must be some good in him," Emily Grace murmured to herself, "I'll make sure you see."

"Oh Emily Grace!" Sirius declared wistfully, "You always bring the best out of people!"

Meanwhile another person was watching Emily Grace with a gaze filled with love and sorrow. Slowly he rose to his feet. Emily Grace's beauty made him simply forget the other people in the Great Hall and he didn't care what people thought because he loved Emily Grace. "Emily Grace!" He called.

Emily Grace turned around and gasped, "ALBY!"

"Yes… it is I…" Dumbledore said and he took Emily Grace in his arms.

"But… you said you were seventeen!"

"Alas, I have lied to you many times. But I love you nonetheless."

"YOU LIED TO HER. YOU BETRAYED HER. I WILL MAKE YOU PAY." Sirius screamed at the top of his voice. Before they knew what was happening, wands were drawn.

"NO!" Emily Grace shouted.

"AVADA KEDAVRA!" Dumbledore cried.

"ARGHHHH!" Sirius screamed and ran in the opposite direction. Emily Grace didn't think; she acted upon impulse. She leapt like a gazelle through the air and the spell hit her. Her body fell elegantly through the air and she landed gracefully on the floor.

"NOOOOOOO!" one thousand five hundred and fifty six people shouted out.

"Emily Grace!" Sirius shrieked. He ran back over to Emily Grace. "NO!"
