Chapter 1: The Letter
Edward and I were sitting at the Cullen's kitchen table doing our homework, well my
homework. Thanks to his stupid vampire speed he had already finished his and was now
helping me with mine.
"Edward, you know that I don't understand calculus, no matter what I do about it.
What's the point?" I asked exasperated, slamming my head down on the table.
"The point is, Bella. That you tried to understand it and when it comes to the test, I think you may be surprised at how many you get right." He said happily.
"Yah, right, that'll be the day." I said sarcastically my head still resting on the table. Edward just laughed.
It was at that moment Alice, Emmett, and the rest of the Cullens' came through the front door yelling, laughing and smiling.
The had all been out at the new dance club in Port Angeles while I was stuck studying and Edward, of course, didn't want to leave me alone by myself; no matter how many times I told him to go and find a prettier girl to fall in love with. He pretended not to hear me, told his family to have fun, shut the door. We then spent hours and hours at the table doing my work.
"So did you all have fun?" I asked, grateful that they had come.
"Yes it was good you should come next time" said Carlisle with a kind smile.
" Okay well we best be going. I have to get her home." Edward said while opening the door for me.
I went to walk out the door when I was attacked by a bird! It's talons scraped across my cheek, thankfully not brining blood, and flew around my head in circles. So of course what was I supposed to do? I screamed Bloody murder.
"Help! Help! Get it away! Ahhh!!" I yelled at the Cullen's who were all standing in shock… well, everyone except Emmett, who was laughing so hard that if he was human he would be crying.
Finally Edward was able to get the bird away from my head by grabbing it by its wing. The bird let out an annoyed squawk and stuck out its leg which held a letter attached to it. After I had calmed down enough I picked up the letter very slowly and read the outside envelope. What was on it shocked myself and the rest of the Cullens even more so than the bird.
It read: Ms I. Swann
The Cullen's front door
I read it out loud to the rest of them, getting more confused with each word I said.
Before I opened it I looked to Alice to ask if she new what was going on.
"I don't know Bella, I cant see it. I would just open it."
"Okay here it goes."
HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY
A few eyebrows raised at that. We had never heard of real wizards. Well if there were werewolves and vampires anything could be true.
Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore
(Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorc., Chf. Warlock, Supreme Mugwump, International Confed. of Wizards)
Dear Ms. Swann
We are pleased to inform you that you have a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We are sorry that you were not informed until your seventeenth year but unfortunately, we were not informed of your magical properties until now. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.
Term begins on 1 September. We await your owl by no later than 31 July.
There were three sheets of paper including the strange note. I gave it to Carlisle who had wanted to read it again and read the other. The first was my list of things to get and the last was another note, handwritten and obviously not from the Deputy Headmistress.
Dear Ms. Isabella "Bella" Swann
We are pleased to invite your friends, The Cullens, to come along as well. I am quite informed of their backgrounds and will be pleased to help with any necessary needs. There is a forest beside Hogwarts where you'll be welcomed to hunt in.
Please say hello to your father Bella, for me. The last time I saw him was when dear Renee had just gotten out of the hospital where she gave birth to you, I quite enjoyed our talk as well as meeting you. You were quite a small thing.
Looking forward to seeing you again.
Love, Albus Dumbledore
Terribly sorry that the bird frightened you and the Cullens, as well as cut your cheek.
"Ho-ly Crap!" Said Emmet after reading over my shoulder.
"Weird." said Alice and Rosalie together.
The others were quite, thinking probably.
"He knew your dad? And you?" Edward asked surprised at this information.
"I guess. We really should get going. I'll ask Charlie when we get home. Okay Carlisle?"
"Of course Bella, and if you choose to go I believe that all of us would come as well."
Edward and I said our goodbyes and left to go confront my dad.
Hogwarts, no ones PoV
"Do you really believe that they will come Dumbledore?" asked Professor McGonagall.
"Oh yes, quite sure. Charlie will make sure of it."
sigh "Dear Charlie Swann, one of the best students I ever had. Even if he was a little clumsy. Too bad James and the others couldn't save him." said Professor Flitwick.
Before the other Professor could finish his question the door opened.
"Sorry." said Snape with his usual sneer in place. " What did I miss?" He asked while sitting down.
"We were waiting for Professor Slughorn to finish his question." said McGonagall somewhat snottily.
"Yes, as I was saying. What happened to him?" Slugghorn asked.
"He was attacked by Death Eaters." Professor Flitwick stated sadly.
"I was not present at the time his name was mentioned." Said Snape sounding bored.
"Charlie Swann. His daughter has magic, she is most likely coming to Hogwarts. Or is that a problem for you?" asked McGonagall.
Snape didn't answer, he just sat there looking somewhat stunned. Dumbledore sighed quietly to himself. Though he would never admit it, Severus quite admired Charlie. He was quite a talented wizard and did treat Severus nicely when they were at school together. Unfortunately, Charlie had sided with James on a very big argument and the had never talked again, he held a grudge against Charlie and has yet to stop even to this day.
"Anyway, he was doing something for the Order." said Dumbledore. "Before it was The Order." He explained to confused glances.
"They had attacked him when he was in a deserted ally in Diagon Alley. Somehow stripped his powers." said McGonagall with a slight sniffle.
"Which obviously made him a squib. Met and fell in love with a muggle and-" Snape was cut of by professor Slugghorn.
"But if he was a squib how is it she has magical powers?"
"We, uh, don't know." McGonagall looked at Albus uncertainly.
"No we don't." He agreed.
There was a uncomfortable silence as some of the professors were lost in their thoughts. It was broken by Hagrid.
"She is friends with vampires?" he asked.
"Yes, apparently she is involved with one, in love if I am not correct." Dumbledore said with a twinkle in his eyes. "Quite normal for young people I am told."
"There is nothing normal with a girl who is infatuated with a vampire." said Snape with a sniff.
"True, but it is not uncommon, especially when it comes to werewolves." Professor Flitwick joked. Everyone laughed at the obvious joke. It was quite obvious that many girls had been infatuated with Professor Remus Lupin. He would be here a day before all the other students came.
Everyone laughed, that is, except Snape.
'There is something he is not sharing' Dumbledore thought to himself.
