The Letter That was Never Delivered


Minerva felt relieved to be clearing out her office after the many years spent there. Using her wand to shrink her filing cabinet down, she noticed an old envelope on the floor and she gasped as an awful realisation washed over her.

Miss Petunia Evans
57 Cherrytree Way
St Ives

Nervously, the newly-appointed Headmistress slid her finger under the seal and pulled out the letter.

Miss. Evans,

We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts -

Minerva couldn't bring herself to read further, staring at the paper, a few tears slid down her cheeks. If only this hadn't happened.

Then everything would have been different.
