Emily Potter, Year 1

I’m Emily Lily Potter. If you haven’t already guessed by the last name, I’m Harry Potter's sister. We’re both the same age, we’re twins. I look like our mother and he looks like our father, Weird huh? I don’t live with the all terrible Dursley’s and I sure as heck don’t live under the stairs! I have been living with my godfather (Remus Lupin) since I was about 5. My mother (Lily Potter) dropped me off at the home of some Muggles less than a day before she died. But the first 5 years of my life were worse than Harry’s, since I was painfully skinny and usually ended cut by broken glass (I had magical issues with the windows). But Lupin managed to locate me when I was 5 and it was a heck of a lot better after that. Anyway, I’m going to go to Hogwarts soon and that should be real fun, maybe I’ll even make some friends!

3. Kings Cross and the Hogwarts Express

                                       Emily’s P.O.V.

It was at least 3 months after my… snake accident. And I am now packing my things to go. I dropped my pay from a few quire jobs in the bag and stepped outside my room. Staring at it contently, I walk with a bit of a limp now but otherwise it’s as if it never happened. “Ready?” Lupin asked and I nodded my head, “So how are we going to Kings Cross?” I asked Lupin smiled at this question “Apparition.” He said cheerfully I groaned I hated Apparition in general, the idea seemed far too dangerous, I mean some wizards have ended up half imbedded in stone walls. I shivered at the thought. I still didn’t know how to so I had to do Side Along Apparition which was far worse in my opinion.

“It’s not that bad.” He said “I guess.” I replied glumly “You know the drill.” He said and I grabbed his arm with one hand and my trunk in the other as we were swept away to King’s Cross. I felt the ground beneath my feet within seconds and doubled over, to stop my head from spinning. Lupin looked about that place in a memorable sort of way, like he was remembering all the times he had been here.

Panther hopped off my shoulder and I took a deep breath pulling myself up. ”It’s been a long time since I’ve been here.” Lupin said and sighed “So where’s platform 9 ¾?” I asked Lupin smiled at my question in a mischievous sort of way. “Well you should just have to run through the barrier between 9 and 10.” Lupin said and I really didn’t like that idea. But after a second or two of convincing, Lupin and I raced through it.

I had my eyes closed most of the time but I opened my eyes when I heard the hoots of owls and meows of cats. Panther was at my side and happily jumped onto my trunk. I looked at the scarlet steam engine that probably was The Hogwarts Express. I smiled “Man I love magic.” I whispered and looked at Lupin.

He smiled happily at me “Don’t forget to write me.” Lupin said and I threw my arms around his shoulders in a hug. “How could I ever forget to write you?” I asked I grabbed my trunk and began dragging it towards the train door. I was having issues with pulling it up; I dropped it on my foot at least 3 times.

“Need a hand?” Asked two red haired freckled twins, I nodded. They heaved it in and I thanked them “Happy to help.” They answered in unison. I smiled and drug my trunk to a compartment. Panther sat on my lap and I looked out the window and searched for Lupin for a second and found him. Beaming at me, I waved he waved back. He walked closer to the train “Got everything?” He asked and I nodded my head

“Make some friends while you’re there. I’ll write you at least once a week.” Lupin said “I’ll tell you everything that happens!” I said excitedly Lupin smiled “And it doesn’t matter what house you get in. As long as your happy there it doesn’t matter.” He said and the train began to move Lupin raced alongside the train for a bit. “I love you!” I called “I love you too!” He called back and stopped as the train began to pick up speed and my godfather left my sight, even though I still waved. I sat down and sat Panther on my lap where he fell asleep. “Anyone else in here?” Asked one of the red haired twins who’d helped me earlier, “No.” I said they stepped in “Everywhere else is full.”  One said “Sorry, Hope you don’t mind.” The other said

“I’m Fred by the way.” Said Fred who held out his hand “And I’m George.” Said George (I shook both their hands at once.) “We’re The Weasley Twins.” Said Fred “The Top Pranksters of the school!” Said George They sat on the seat in front of me and I smiled.

“I’m Emily.” I said “Nice to meet you Emily!” They both said at once “Hey Lee! In here!” Called George…. At least I think it was George, and a boy with dreadlocks came in. “Who’s she?” The boy asked “Emily this is Lee Jordan. Lee Jordan this is Emily.” I shook the boys hand “Pleasure to meet you.” Lee Jordan said “Likewise.” I replied “Sorry to interrupt but do you think there’s any room in there?” asked a black haired girl with emerald green eyes “Yes.” We all answered and with some rearranging it managed to work.

“I’m Jasmine by the way.” Said Jasmine who was pressed up against Fred, who was pressed up against Lee Jordan. “What’s in the box?” Jasmine asked Lee Jordan opened the box to show an enormous black tarantula. Jasmine smiled at it, “Cool.” She said and the boys looked a little weirded out when neither Jasmine nor I screamed.

Jasmine was blushing furiously, probably because she was pressed up against Fred. “So what house are you guys in?” Jasmine asked “Griffindor.” The twins and Lee Jordan replied “You two are first years right?” asked Fred, Me and Jasmine nodded our heads. “Hope you’re in Griffindor.” Said George

A midnight black cat hopped up onto Jasmine’s lap. “Nice cat.” I said “Thanks.” She replied, and silence overwhelmed us. No one spoke for a bit… It was awkward. “So what house do you guys want to be in?” Asked Fred,  I know he was Fred since he was next to Jasmine. “Griffindor.” I said instantly “It by far seems best.”  I continued “Same, though Ravenclaw doesn’t sound half bad.” Jasmine said who seemed to have wanted shrug but was too squished to do so.

“How long does it take to get to Hogwarts?” I asked “Oh not long, about an hour.” Said George and I sighed leaning back against the seat. “its going to be a loooong ride.” Jasmine said and sighed.

“So what house were your parents in?” Lee Jordan asked “Griffindor.” I said, I knew that. “Beats me.” Jasmine said laughing lightly and hollowly “What do you mean beats me?” George asked staring at Jasmine in confusion “Believe me I would have asked if I could, I’m sort of an Orphan. For all I know I’m Muggleborn.” Jasmine said making an expression that made up for not being able to shrug.

“Sorry to hear that.”  I said “Don’t be, it doesn’t really matter.” Jasmine said casually, how someone could be so casual about something so serious was beyond me. “Don’t you feel you know alone?” Emily asked and Jasmine sort of froze up at this question “I never met them, so I couldn’t really… My brother was murdered savagely and most of my friends have been burned alive in a fire that burned my old orphanage. I was moved to a new one. Sometimes I can still hear them scream.” Jasmine whisphered her eyes becoming rather empty and distant. She shook her head.

Everyone was now looking terribly sad. “Enough about me and my issues what about you?” Jasmine asked “M parents are dead. I’m Harry Potter’s twin sister and live with my Godfather. I was attacked by a snake like a month ago which is why I may limp occasionally.” I said and everyone was staring at me in awe “Your Harry Potter’s Twin Sister? As in the daughter of Lily and James Potter?” George asked and I nodded my head feeling all eyes on me which was awkward feeling.

“How come we haven’t heard about you?” Lee Jordan asked “Because I haven’t done anything fascinating.” I said laughing slightly George shrugged “So your Emily Potter?” asked Jasmine “Emily Lily Potter.” I said and stared at the ground “So what about you two?” I asked directing my attention towards Fred and George.

“We have five brothers and one sister. All our family is wizarding- “ said George “Except for our mom’s got a second cousin whose an accountant, but we don’t talk about him.” Fred said “Does it matter if your Half-blood or Mugglborn?” I asked “It shouldn’t if your with the right people, some think that their better than everyone else because they’re what they call Pure-bloods. No offence to you two of course.” Jasmine said who looked at the twins apologetically “None taken, it’s the wizard who’s important not the blood status.” They Twins said in Unison

“Nothing you should fret over.” Said Lee Jordan “Hello, has anyone seen a toad? Neville here lost his.” Said a girl with Bushy brown hair/ and a bit of a bossy attitude in my opinion. “Afraid not.” Lee Jordan said “I’m Hermione by the way. Hermione Granger. Well if you see it, please tell Neville or me.” She said and whisked around dragging a boy behind her who must have been Neville.

“Anything off the cart dears?” asked a smiling dimpled woman Both I, The Twins and Jasmine shook our heads. Lee Jordan got a Pumpkin pastry. I sighed. All of us were already in our Hogwarts cloths… I wondered what house I would be in.

                                               Jasmine’s P.O.V.

I felt really out of place here. I was weak and pathetic, I could barely walk upright. I tripped over my own feet, people could easily get into my mind, I was skinny and a little over average height. Most of my family was dead and my friends were for sure. But maybe Hogwarts would help me, become stronger. Maybe it would help me choose my own path.

I liked the Twins, they had a happy bright air about them. I felt a little weird since I was squished next to Fred but I didn’t really mind. I kind of liked it….. “So you guys are in what year 3?” I asked The boys nodded

                                                               Emily’s P.O.V

“Do you think we’re going to be at Hogwarts, soon?” I asked impatiently and Jasmine took a very deep breath “A few minutes more tops.” Fred said and shook Lee Jordan awake who had fallen asleep on Fred’s shoulder. “What?” He asked as Fred shook him it was mildly amusing. “So what’s your favorite-“ Jasmine didn’t finish because the train stopped. Jasmine and I got out first since we were closest to the door, we left the train and stood about for a second not sure of what to do.

“Firs’ years! Firs’ years over here! Anymore firs’ years? Mind yer step now!” as we followed a giant of a man, who according to a few students, was Hagrid the Gamekeeper. We followed him down a steep narrow path. There was a loud “Oooooh!” as Hogwarts came into sight.
