One-Way Ticket to Potter's World

Chapter One: The Hospital Wing

"Where did you say you found her, again, Potter?" someone was saying. Their voice sounded familiar.

"Out by the gates, Madam Pomfrey. I was on my way to see Hagrid." someone else-"Potter", I suppose-replied promptly.

"Hmm..." sighed "Madam Pomfrey.

I let out a low moan.

Someone-Madam Pomfrey, I suppose-made a "shhing" noise.

I opened my eyes groggily and blinked in the light.

A lady, who appeared to be the nurse, looked down at me.

"You're awake!" she said; this was Madam Pomfrey, I realized.

" I?" I barely managed to say in a weak voice.

You're in the hospital wing, of course." Madam Pomfrey said sweetly.

"I'm where?" I asked as I attempted to sit up in the bed I was on and failed miserably.

"In the hospital wing." Madam Pomfrey repeated gently.

"In the hospital wing, WHERE, though?" I asked.

"At Hogwarts, of course." the other person in the room, Potter, answered.

"Hogwarts?" I asked, confused, "It sounds familiar, but I don't know what it is."

"Dumbledore will explain later." Madam Pomfrey said. She turned to Potter, "Go get Professor Dumbledore, Potter."

Potter nodded and left.

"Madam Pomfrey?" I asked raspily.


"Who was that that just left?"

"Mr. Harry Potter. He's the one who found you."

"I feel like I know him from somewhere...but only vaguely." I explained.

"I wouldn't be surprised...He's quite famous around here...But as for now, relax and try to rest." Madam Pomfrey said.

Just as I was getting around to going to sleep, Harry and an elderly man in robes came up to Madam Pomfrey and I.

"Ah, Professor Dumbledore!" Madam Pomfrey greeted the man.

"Madam Pomfrey," he nodded in greeting.

He nodded in my direction quickly as well, and I replied also with a weak and fairly raspy sounding, "Hello." back.

He strided up to where I was, Madam Pomfrey and Harry with him.

"Do you remember your name, Miss?" he asked politely.

"Emma. Emma Watson." I said, my voice starting to return to normal. (No, she doesn't look like the real Emma Watson)

"Well, Miss Watson, do you remember anything else about yourself?"

"Umm...I was born on July 20, 1980...I think that's about it right now, though..." I continued racking my brains for the next moment or two.

"Hey, you're only a couple weeks older than me! I was born July 31!" Harry exclaimed.

"That's cool..." I said. I was used to being younger that everyone else.

I attempted sitting up again. (This time with success...)

Dumbledore sighed softly and motioned for Madam Pomfrey to go off to speak with him in private.

"So, do you mind explaining 'Hogwarts'?" I asked Harry.

"Well, it's actually short for 'Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry'..."
