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!

9. Midnight Duel

                                                                Emily's P.O.V.

“Oh thank Merlin you’re not being expelled.” I said taking exhaling deeply “And you didn’t even get detention. You were made Seeker, definitely the best case scenario.” I said again Harry smiled “You must be the youngest Seeker in about-“ Ron was interrupted by Harry himself “a century, Wood told me.” Harry said seeming rather happy “Still both of you shouldn’t have done that!” Hermione hissed from beside me.

“Hello Potter having one last meal before you head home?” Asked a voice from behind Harry full of loathing, hate and cruelty. I of course could see who it was sitting across from him, and I think Ron, Harry and Hermione knew who it was too. Harry turned around. “A lot braver now that you have your gang and feet on the ground Malfoy. And if you must know I haven’t been expelled.” He said calmly

“I challenge you to a Wizard’s Duel. You do know what that is?” Draco asked coldly “Of course he knows what a Wizard’s Duel is! I’m his Second. Who’s yours?” Said Ron and I was almost surprised that he volunteered to be his second, considering that that meant he was willing to watch Harry die…. If anything happened at all that was.

Draco chose Crabbe. Hermione looked at me and her look clearly said ‘Don’t let them do that’. I frowned this early in the year? Wizard’s Duel? Not good. Draco walked away and as soon as he was out of earshot Harry asked “Okay what is a Wizard’s Duel?”

Ron answered that question “A duel. With wands… Where one will try to defeat the other…. And before you ask a Second is there to continue after you if you die.” Ron said and I put my head in my hands. Harry was done for.

Harry wasn’t backing down. It was roughly 11:45 and 20 seconds…. Okay so not roughly. I have a good sense of time! I sighed, there was no sense in staying here and worrying. I blinked I sounded too much like Lupin….. a lot like him. I shook my head to rid my mind of pointless thoughts.

I hopped out of bed and left walking halfway down the stairs to the common room. I’m surprised how easily I can move around with such a small amount of light. My eyes reacted well to movement, kind of animal like really. Since Hermione was the only one in the room I saw her easily. She had shifted her position for half a second and I had caught it.

I questioned my vision for a second and coming up with no excuse or real reason continued to creep down the stairs to the common room. I sat down on the couch. And she turned on the light to see who it was. “It’s just me Hermione.” I said and she exhaled deeply. And turned the light back off. The dying embers of the fire cast shadows everywhere but gave no true light.

“So you’ve finally agreed with me?” she said in an annoyed tone. “To be honest I agree with you completely, Ron and Harry shouldn’t go to that duel because its probably a trap and or someone’s going to get hurt. But I kind of have to support Harry’s decision.” I said and Hermione snorted “Because he’s Harry Potter. Go figure.” She said and I realized that Harry hadn’t told her “Actually because he’s hopefully going up against a bully and because he’s my brother.” I informed and Hermione seemed speechless “How come I’ve never heard of you? Harry is in-“I quickly interrupted her “Because I haven’t done anything interesting, and shh I think I hear them.” I murmured

And sure enough within seconds Ron and Harry slunk down the stairs and into the common room. They were at The Portrait Hole and then Hermione flicked the light on. “You’re not doing this.” Hermione said and I sighed “Now you’re on her side huh?” Ron asked glaring at me “I really am on no one’s side but I just want to say that this could very easily be some kind of trap!” I said angrily

“If you get caught you’ll lose points for Griffindor! Don’t you want us to win The House Cup?” Hermione asked furiously as both Harry and Ron started to walk through the Portrait Hole. Hermione kept furiously hissing at them. I got up and followed.

“You two are not coming.” Ron said and I laughed sarcastically “Expelliarmus!” I said and a jet of scarlet sparks smashed into the wall. Which I’m surprised didn’t wake anyone up. “You can come just don’t do that again.” Ron said and I smiled “Thank you for seeing it my way.” I said

Hermione was kind of argumentive and Ron was as well. Something told me that they would go well together. Jasmine popped her head out of the Portrait Hole. “You guys going on a walk too?” She asked and Ron sighed loudly, Harry was obviously getting irritated. Jasmine smiled “I’ll go back to bed.” She muttered and shut the portrait.

“Can we please get going???” Harry asked and Ron growled and I rolled my eyes. We went to the Trophy Room, this was going to be the area for dueling. I stepped about and examined the floorboards. “Yeah those are floorboards.” Ron said sarcastically and I sighed. I walked about the room making sure no creature was hiding or Draco was using an invisibility cloak or something to hide himself.

“Are you done?” Ron asked and I ignored him. There was nothing interesting or “dangerous” so I gave up. “Whats your wand made of?” Hermione asked “Bloodwood and the core is Dragon Heartstrings and Thestral hair.” I said and Hermione seemed mildly confused “Thestral?” she asked and Harry put a finger to his lips implying silence. We shut up and listened. Sure enough we heard something and weren’t happy.

“Sniff around my sweet! There in here somewhere.” That was Filch and he was talking to Mrs. Norris. We all gasped. “RUN!” Harry screamed and we all raced out of the room. We didn’t really know where we were going but we were following Harry. “I think we lost him.” Ron panted “I told you it was a trap, Draco probably told Filch that students would be there. I was right!” I said in between pants and smiled

“Where are we exactly?” Hermione asked “I have no idea. Some hallway.” Harry said and I continued to smile. Something about being lost always made me happy…. Don’t ask seriously. We heard an angry meow and looked down to see Mrs. Norris. Ron made a rude hand jester mid-air. In my panic I kicked Mrs. Norris across the room and ran. Now everyone was following me. Great.

We ended up in a dark room. We all sighed and took a minute to breath. “Nice kick that dumb cat went halfway down the hallway!” Ron said happily and I smiled “Thanks! I’ve never kicked a cat before.” I said (still smiling) “Dumb animal deserved it.” Ron said and Hermione glared

“She would have gotten us caught.” Harry said and then I felt a rush of cold run through my body as Peeves the Poltergeist flew through me. I hate him. “Oh look ickle firsties. I should tell Filch…” He said playfully and we all began to beg “STUDENTS OUT OF BED!!!!!!” Screamed Peeves “Fuck you Peeves!” I hissed and we raced to a thoroughly locked door.  “Heavy language for a girl.” Harry muttered

“It’s locked we’ll never get in! We’re going to get caught!” Ron cried and Hermione pushed him out of the way “Alohomora!” she said frantically as the locks unlocked. We scrambled inside.

The first thing we heard was a sad yowl of pain. I think I kicked Mrs. Norris too hard. I felt a bit of guilt. “Which way did they go Peeves?” Filch asked angrily The only thought running through my head was ‘I’ll be the first to die’. “I won’t tell you nothing if you don’t say please.” Peeves replied

“Peeves! Fine Please.”

“Nothing! HAHAHHAHAHAH I told you if you didn’t say please I wouldn’t tell you nothing!!! AHAHAHA!”

Filch swore and cursed loudly. Leaving the room with a growl. Mrs. Norris yowled in pain as he left. “And Harry it’s not “heavy” language. Believe me I could do worse.” I informed “and to think I thought you were helpless.” Harry said “Really?” I asked I was kind but not helpless.

“G-Guy’s. Turn around.” Ron squeaked and Hermione, me and Harry turned around seeing a large three headed slobbering dog. It filled the entire room. Yellowing fangs gleamed in what little light was in here and all of us exchanged a glance and screamed. The dog barked angrily.

I saw it was on a trapped door but didn’t really care. We all raced out of the room and Hermione locked it. “We’re were on The Forbidden Corridor or the Third Floor!” I hissed angrily as we found our way back to The Portrait Hole.

“Where on Earth have you been?” She asked angrily “Never mind that. Pig-Snout, Pig-Snout.” Harry panted and we hopped in “What are they thinking keeping a thing like that locked up in Hogwarts! They’re bloody mad!” Ron hissed

“You don’t use your eyes any of you!” Hermione hissed her bad temper back “Ifg your talking about the Trap door than yes I saw it.” I said angrily and slumped down on a couch. “Yes the trap door!” Hermione snarled “I was too busy keeping track of all 3 of its heads than to look at the floor!” Harry growled

“It’s obviously guarding something!” she said and “what do you think the Cerberus is guarding?” I asked “I am guessing that the Ceber-whatever is the three headed dog but honestly I don’t care. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to sleep.” Ron said and got up leaving for bed “Sleep is probably our best option at the moment.” I said and Harry nodded leaving for bed as well

Hermione got up and left as well. I just fell asleep on the couch I was on…. Still in my cloths.
