The doors of the Great Hall swung open. There stood 10 majestic animals. They were led by a well-built tigress. The tigress jumped onto the middle table. The others followed. They walked to the end of the table, jumped down and bowed. Pupils looked at them, the fear in their hearts growing by the minute.
The animals reached the staff table. The Tigress reared up onto her hind legs, opened her mouth and roared, the sound echoing throughout the castle. She dropped down. Suddenly the strangest thing happened. All the animals started to spin in circles on the spot. A light flashed then there stood ten beautiful girls, all where the animals used to be. The tigress, which was now a girl wearing a tiger print top and leggings, walked over to the staff table and stopped in front of Dumbledore.
"Are you Albus Percival Wolfric Brian Dumbledore?" she asked. A shocked and relived Dumbledore smiled and nodded. All the girls bowed low. Dumbledore politely asked them, "Who are you?" The girl smiled.
"We are Phynix." The girls said in unison.
"I am Morganithia Kaywood. We seek shelter. We also seek medical attention. Kiahbiathy, come forward. A little girl walked forward, a bloody bandage wrapped around her arm.
"We shall get Madame Pomfrey to see to that. Professor Mcgonagall, will you please take…"
"Thank you. Will you please take Kiah to the hospital wing?" They walked away. "If you want, I can grant you the right to learn here, that is, if you want to?"
The girls looked at each other and nodded.
"We would love to."
